The Nourishing Meme: My Answers
What is a “meme?” Well, let’s let Joanne Hay from www.nourished.com.au explain it: “Broadly described in Wikipedia as a unit of cultural information that can be transmitted from one mind to another, a meme is a set of questions (usually five) we ask each other to stimulate conversation.” Joanne asked me to answer these questions for myself:
1. What is the most nourishing thing you frequently do for your self?
I was raised in Davidson County, North Carolina, on High Rock Lake. Our place (my parents and I have) at the lake was, and is, a refuge from all the pressures of the world. With abundant woods… animals; including squirrels, birds, deer, and other abundant wildlife, I love to go there and “un-wind” while swimming and listening to nature all around me. I feel that it “recharges me” it very fundamental, personal way.
2. For your health, what will you never compromise on?
I stay away from processed sugar at all times, and I try to drink as much pure water as possible.
3. Where do you get most of your health information?
From natural health books, textbooks, and the Internet. My favorite sites are listed on the “Blogroll” here on the “Traditional Naturopath” website.
4. What single whole food or supplement has turned your health around the most?
A had a serious bout with high blood pressure, and began taking the herb Coleus Forskohlii. My blood pressure dropped to perfectly normal and all symptoms went away in less than two weeks! It was an amazing experience, and reinforces to me that there are natural, non-destructive ways to overcome any sub-health condition!
5. What is your favourite natural therapy?
Being a Master Herbalist, I tend to look first at herbal remedies, however, I have always been impressed by what can be done with energy therapies and study Kinesiology (MRT) as well. Between these modalities, I have found tremendous benefit personally to me, and to my family and friends.
