About me.. .Sharon.
I started my journey with plants quite a few years ago. I was looking for a way to eat healthier. I realized that what I ate had a lot to do with how I felt, stamina and my pain levels. I am talking about various fruits and vegetables that I thought were good for me but after I started a journal about how I felt after eating certain items. I realized that what was good for me and my body may not be good for others. We are each different. That is why I don’t suggest herbal remedies to anyone. I do suggest that people have an alternative and that they have the opportunity to learn about plants and what they could do for them.
When it came to food, I realized what I could and could not eat. Pre-packaged items were the worst on my list. This all came to light in a big way, when I was bitten by a tick for the first time in 2010. I went through the initial antibiotics and altered my diet even more. I will say it helped but it wasn’t enough. In 2015, I was clinically diagnosed then later confirmed to have the bacterium Borrelia Burgdorferi or lyme disease, Bartonella, Ehrlichiosis/Anaplasmosis Mycoplasma and Babesia a malaria-like parasite
My Lyme-literate physician strongly suggested that I have a IV-port put in my chest and that I would need stronger and larger doses of liquid antibiotics. I thought about it then began my own research and within a day I refused this treatment plan. I went my own path guided by my instinct, symptoms and prayer.
Now there is a whole lot more involved but my primary goal was to find ways to improve my immune system to fight off these bacteria that had taken up residence in my body. I realized that an IV- antibiotic treatment would also destroy any good bacteria in my body and affect my working immune system and all my organs that were working just fine. Man-made antibiotics do have there place and I did use them on occasion but I also knew the side affects may cause other issues. The cool thing was I found plants that can be considered “natural antibiotics” and I now include them in my diet on a weekly basis.
For my personal treatment plan I decided I needed to do 3 things
Support my immune system
Support my organs so they could do they job they were created to do for my body.
Reduce my inflammation
I altered my diet significantly and I turned to the spices in my cabinet and tea.. Yes, really I found various herbal tea blends. I was picky with the brands I chose I found ONLY organically grown blends of herbs.
That was when my interest in plants grew. I started researching the plants that were in these tea blends and began to connect the dots. This led to identifying the plants, mushrooms and trees growing in my yard. I took my camera and well I started learning what could potentially be useful for me. I just needed to learn how to prepare them for me. That was when I found various herbalist and eventually this free introductory course. This course was a little different back then. So much so, that I am considering taking it again. Primarily, it solidified my belief that plants (herbs) have qualities that I needed to explore. I just had to get to know these plants and learn how to prep them for my own personal use. If that is what you are interested in.. This class is a great place to start.
