I’ve never been one to load up on medicine–never. Even in my super conventional days, I would only take medicine as a last resort.
I only took one antibiotic in childhood–for strep throat, as a teenager. And the only other antibiotic (besides during labor) I’ve had since was for a sinus infection when I was 25.

When I became a mom, I decided to begin researching more natural alternatives to healing.
And so my natural medicine cabinet was born.
I’m happy to say that my family still only uses conventional medications as a last resort–but we don’t just grin and bear illnesses anymore. We conquer them head-on with these more natural alternatives.
