I have been a stay at home mom for the last 3.5 years and professionally I have always been in the health and wellness industry. For years I was a massage therapist and I am currently studying to become a certified homeopathic practioner. I have always believed in our body's ability to naturally heal itself...it's what it is designed to do.
Alchemy is the process of transforming substances into more subltle or refined states. The alchemy of nutrition begins even before we eat, when we select and prepare our foods. Good health begins with good nutrition! When the body is bombarded with highly processed foods lacking the proper nutrients it accumulates metabolic waste products which build up in the tissues and cells which leads to a variety of illnesses. Illness is always systemic so we must always treat the body as a "whole." Nutriton IS alchemy. The ancient physician, Hippocrates, said "Let your food be your medicine...your medicine be your food."
