Mother Earth is a common representation of our planet that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature, the source of every life and health.
As women, we are the nurturers of human life. Many of us wheel the shopping cart around the supermarket, cook and feed the family, take care of the home, and at the same time, run a business. We are multi-taskers and the epitome of devotion when it comes to caring for our family’s health and wellbeing.
I learned valuable knowledge about health at a young age, and it has been my life’s work. My love of animals in childhood stopped me from eating them at an early age. This decision, very radical at the time, has inspired my teaching for over 40 years. Now that decision has become more common and it is the most significant development in modern nutrition. It was during my growing awareness of health issues when I realized something else, as well. Given the right diet and lifestyle, the body has the power to recover from illness. We are a self-healing organism if we understand and apply some simple life skills.
