I took a class from Dr. Jones and was impressed with his approach to herbs and natural healing. I chose to join and learn what I have wanted to learn for many years, I like his style.
I am a mother of five, all married, and a grandmother of 14.5. They all call me for "what to do" and many times, or most, I am frustrated that I do not know enough to assist.
I first got introduced, 32 years ago, to natural healing by a woman who was a nurse in Korea and had moved to the US. My son had burned himself very badly and the doctor told me to put neosporin on it. I new that was not the right answer and the journey began. She came into my life and treated his burn. He healed quickly, no infection, and no scar. I was hooked.
From that moment on I have been searching and learning about herbs. I first started with Dr. Christopher formulas and have been open to others.
I have many herbs/weeds in my yard and am glad that I have been impressed as to which ones to include.
We raise bees which assists in herbal preparations, besides the honey being pure and wonderful and truly raw, no heat.
A few years ago I had tinnitus in my right arm and I lost the use of it as well as being in great pain. Again, I looked for other than conventional options. I found a Chinese acupuncturist in SLC and went to see her. I healed completely. No drugs, no surgery. Great to be healthy and have full use of my arm.
I like being peculiar and seeing things others don't.
I look forward to the continued journey of learning from other like minded people.

Tendonitis is no fun. Tinnitis (ringing in the ears) is also no fun. My wife had a bad case in her elbow years ago that we had to manage.

Acupuncturists can do some neat things. I have a brother that's a neurosurgeon that started using acupuncture on some of his patients instead of back surgery. It cost him a lot of money. LOL

We have a local acupuncturist that's quite good. Learning and using more acupuncture is one of the things on my bucket list.
