How Clean Is YOUR Glass ?
I've always been very sensitive to chemical exposure and I have a theory about people who try to live a chemical free lifestyle vs. those who eat, drink and expose themselves without any (perceived) consequences . . . if you dump dirt into a glass of clean water you notice a drastic result; whereas if you dump dirt into an already muddy glass you will only get more sediment.
I'm A Hippie At Heart . . .
When I was a kid, my family lived without modern amenities such as electricity, running water or telephone for a few years before moving to the beaches of Florida. I now live in the rural sand hills of Levy county outside of Gainesville. I apprenticed full time for over three years in the medicinal application of Ayurveda and have nearly fifteen years experience in Ayurvedic and synergistic aromatherapy. Having been department manager of a large holistic clinic, I was involved in research and development of Ayurvedic therapies and patient protocol.
For a while (1995-2001), I was host and organizer of holistic trade shows, workshops and seminars and have been interviewed on radio and television.
Currently, I instruct at both Central Florida and Santa Fe Community Colleges, do private consultations and offer advice on Chick Advisor's ChickChat.
When I'm not busy handcrafting cold process soap, teaching or volunteering for a community event, I can be found participating at a Pow Wow's trade blanket if there is one within a 50 mile radius ! Other times, I am busy collecting data that I can pass along via various social websites or my blog.
Because of my early life experiences, I have been able to fully embrace the holistic lifestyle. It is not a new interest or waning fad for me . . . it is all I ever knew, and everything I aspire to achieve. It is my intention to share what I have learned so that others may benefit.
