Hi! I am Michele
I am a lover of Jesus (and coffee!), formerly a legal assistant, a teacher, and now a holistic health coach! I love gardening; I am a budding herbalist; and I am a champion of real food, traditionally prepared. Cooking real food for my family and my friends brings me great joy; it is my happy place! My mission is to enlighten you with the truth about the use of real food, herbals, essential oils, and other natural therapies, and to empower you to take charge of your health. Together, we’ve got this!!
After suffering 20 years with digestive issues that allopathic doctors were unable to adequately identify and treat, I began searching for answers on my own. What I learned is that all disease begins in the gut. Hippocrates said it 2000 years ago. The answers lie in restoring the health of the gut with a real food diet. I began with the GAPS diet, as well as applied the principles of a real food diet as prescribed by Dr. Weston A. Price. Additionally, my integrative doctor diagnosed me with Hashimoto’s hypothyroiditis, an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Diet and restoring gut health are key!
I am passionate about supporting and guiding you on your own journey of discovery, learning, preparing, and beginning your own journey to whole health. Whole health is not just about the body; it also involves the mind – knowing truth; and it involves health in your personal life as well, by learning to reduce stress, and finding joy in the people and things you love! Let’s get started! Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
I will blog once per week. Topics will range from food to natural therapies to herbals, essential oils, news in the world of natural therapies, and the like. To keep up to date, please sign up for my weekly newsletter. As well, follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by! I am really glad you are here! Join me and let’s begin your journey to healing!
