I’m excited that there are steps in place right now that will benefit you and I in incorporating natural solutions in our main stream model! While I personally rely almost 100% on the many gifts of nature because I know they are truly what supports my body best, I do know there are times when urgent medical care is needed. It has its place!
I’d love to have you post your comments on what’s working for you and/or what you see should be the future for healthcare!
