Nat­u­ral home remedies

Myrtleford Times - - North East Regional Extra -

ONE of the best parts of our job as a natur­opath is ed­u­cat­ing peo­ple to man­age and treat their own health with sim­ple home remedies.

We do this of­ten in clinic through diet and life­style tips, but more re­cently we have been do­ing cor­po­rate and pri­vate work­shops on a range of top­ics.

Clos­est to our heart at the mo­ment is fam­ily home remedies.

Now that we both have chil­dren to “ex­per­i­ment” on, we are tri­alling some tra­di­tional recipes that have been handed down through the her­bal fam­ily.
