I received a wonderful e-mail recently from a very clever lady who has done an amazing job with her own health and that of her family. She is open to learning more, experimenting with whole foods and raising her children as naturally and healthfully as possible. This made me smile and I’m sure it will make you smile too! Reprinted here with her permission:
“You know what, I have learnt a very important lesson today: to trust my own choices as a mum and to know I am doing a great job! I sent you my email yesterday after talking to 2 different people about the possibility of swine flu and they were both horrified that I wasn’t going to the doctors ASAP and that I chose to treat with food and homeopathic medicine.
I then let their comments cloud my judgment and started to panic when my son’s fever peaked: was I doing the right thing? Well this morning his fever has started to come down and he is slowly starting to heal. All this was done with your fabulous healing soup recipe you gave me ages ago, and juices with garlic as well as the Astragalus and plenty of bed rest. The cough that started yesterday appears to be gone.
I must give credit to my kids too, they are so great at taking whatever I say will make them better, I know a lot of kids would go yuck! Why aren’t more people aware of the bodies amazing ability to heal if treated right? ”
What an awesome Mum! And she is so right – we are so quick to distrust the natural processes of healing, which is often not comfortable or pleasant. It’s awful to be sick, and of course I don’t advocate putting kids in danger, but being aware of the natural course of an illness, supporting the body with the right foods and herbs and keeping a close eye on the patient will most often result in a full resolution of the problem.
And it is very empowering to see this in action and know that we have more resources for healing than we ever thought possible.
