First Post

So, I'm entering the world of blogs...

The inspiration behind this endeavor is the last three years I have spent at home (following my graduation from college in 2006) dealing with some serious health issues, and subsequently doing a whole lot of reading on health, nutrition, and cooking. And I am still reading! In so doing, I have learned a great deal, and perhaps now have some health wisdom to share-- from amateur to amateur. It's been quite the education thus far, and this new interest may just become a new career in the future...

My goal in creating this blog is to share some of the information I have gained the hard way, and to help people either to reclaim or maintain their health. I will share resources I've found helpful, books and products I recommend, wisdom I've gained, and health controversies which have puzzled me. That last one warrants participation from readers. We can all learn from each other, and pool resources. I am still ever the student, and ready to check out whatever articles or other resources you have to share.

Please join me in gaining wholesome wisdom for living healthfully and joyfully... naturally. :)


  1. Hi Betsy! I can't wait to see how the next step in your recovery goes. I think this blog is a great idea and an excellent way to keep a journal of everything as you get healthier and healthier.

  2. Thanks! I think it will be a good experience.

  3. I'm proud of you! This is long over-due, and I'm confident that the world of holistic medicine is breathing a sigh of relief because of you :)

  4. Hi Betsy, I would like to suggest the following link for homeopathic information, especially with this being the season for berry picking and resultant poison ivy exposure, and also flu season.
    This is a Q & A site that we have found very helpful for a number of circumstances. The nicest thing about homeopathy is NO side effects and I would not be recommending it if it didn't work! I hope you get a chance to check it out!
