Hola, this is my bilingual/multi-cultural blog to consult with folks in our communities about connecting with la Madre Tierra in our daily lives, in connecting with herbs and nutrition, exercise, breathing and action to improve our health, to care for each other and to transform our lives and how we live together with each other y con La Madre Tierra.
Please know, Querid@s, I am not a doctor, nor am I giving medical advice, so you need to double check information contained here with your physician, given the war by the American Medical Association against the use of herbs as medicine. I do know a few things, however, cultural herstories/histories about healing passed down through our communities and through my practice with lots of others and communities of making the world a better place. And I want to share those things with you.
This information is for educational purposes, to help us all take responsibility and some level of autonomy for our health and well being. Herbs and nutrition have been used for tons & tons of years in all our cultures – Asian, Indigenous, African, mestizo, country, poor folks, women, LGBTQ folks in the Americas, the islands all over, in Europe, and they will continue to be used. AND, they have been shown to be useful in strengthening the bodies of all two and four footed beings during all that time. We as animals, all our cousins and us humans, have often been in tune with herbs and plants that have provided nutrition for us over the millions of years we have all evolved together, so it makes perfect sense that we would help each other, provide health for each other and share that knowledge which sometimes gets lost in our hectic preoccupying world and lives.
Allopathic or western biomedical medicine is also useful to deal with crisis, but if we stop and breathe, listen to our bodies, our hearts and our world, practice prevention and sustainable development and living, treat each other with the respect and love we all deserve, we won’t have so many crisies but will rather live more in harmony with our world, our selves and each other! In addition, many of the chemical medicines, digitalis, aspirin, etc., come from plants and herbs.
So, let’s make this truly interactive, a collective space where we can honor the earth, each other and share information and ways of knowing always leading to ACTION and skills so we can all live better, freer and more creative lives!
If you want to learn more about herbs and nutrition and how they can benefit you, I would be happy to set aside some time and work together. I will work with you within your budget and I also think follow through is crucial, so I don’t do one shot deals.
The world does have a lot of pain and hurt, but there are lots of things we can do about it, ¿no te parece? And there is alot of joy, connection and transformation too!
All blessings pa’ l@s que me animaron, mi tio Hernando Garcia Botero y pa’ mi mamita, Cecilia Mutis Garcia!
Peace in and out, ¡Mi Gente!.
