I have always been told that I was so lucky growing up and having organic foods my grandad had grown in the garden each day. My mum attributed my health to it.
I have always fed my dogs well and treated them with herbal remedies. I read Janey Lee Graces books on how to bring my children up naturally. Looking at alternative medicines and beauty treatments.
Now my life has led me here and I feel I have found what I have been searching for, the thing which resonates with me. Ayurveda. But…. It doesn’t seem to fit into today’s society. But that is all changing.
Today people are turning to Acupuncture, Yoga, Ayurveda and Massage where usually they would go to the doctors for a tablet to mask the symptoms rather than treating the root of the problem. I know it, I have been there! But I have been turning to these alternative methods and found they have worked more long term.
After my motorbike accident in 2005 I was offered Acupuncture on the NHS and it really helped me. This is something that would never have been heard of just 10 years earlier.
My wonderful girl Chloe, who I lost in the summer, was being treated with Mistletoe extract for her cancer and it shrunk her tumour massively and gave her a longer life. A treatment they use in over 50% of human cancer patients in Germany, but we dismiss here. Germany relies on complimentary medicine, and I hope that there will be a big shift here too.
In the past 3 years there has been a big increase in the usage of Ayurveda in the West with positive response, and long may it continue.
