Vintage Remedies.Have you heard of Vintage Remedies? The name rang a bell for me, when I first heard of this online school. I realized that I'd gotten a (e-book version of0 their Handbook of Vintage Remedies. (Thanks Nikki! I didn't realize at the time just how amazing of a resource that little freebie would be!)
How Vintage Remedies Has Helped MeWell, a year or three have gone by, and Vintage Remedies has become one of the most useful, helpful, and reliable sources I've been going to for all things health, healing and herbal over the past nine months. What happened nine months ago? I signed up for Vintage Remedies course Family Herbalist. I've had the benefits of the course itself, instructor input, the course materials (books, PDFs, audio info, etc), as well as access to the entire student library of videos and audio messages.
The student library is where I got facts on EBOLA, when the world around me -at least online- seemed to be in a panic; where I found on ingesting EOs, to pass on to a pregnant friend who was just getting started with EOs; how to more effectively and safely share about herbs and health information; and many other helpful, relevant bits of information - and scientific studies and their results - that I could apply to my life right where I'm at, or pass on to others.
Through Vintage Remedies, I've been able to learn what exactly it is about sugar that makes it a negative thing to health - I've read and read some on this before, but they broke it down so simply in the first day of their (free) 8 Weeks of Real Food email series that started out the year. (It also included step-by step actions to take so you could integrate the ideas from each week into you daily life, so it was very practical and not just more information to get bogged down with.) With what I've learned from Vintage Remedies I've been able to reevaluate what I write about on my blog, and be more conscientious about sharing wider range of information (contraindications and reasons someone may need to avoid specific remedies or herbs), rather than just basics of things I've been learning on my own for my own use.
