Welcome to Self-Sufficient Health. What does this mean? To me, it means taking charge of my health and my future, with God’s grace. I believe we all have the opportunity to live our best lives. What that may look like to you may be completely different for me. I believe each of us our uniquely and wonderfully made. However, I believe with factors in the environment and genetics, each of us may feel our optimal best, living different lifestyles. It is a self discovery process. Through this website, I want to search for my personal optimum best healthy lifestyle.
Here are some of the things I want to explore:
*What nourishing foods are best for my body? My family’s bodies?
*What exercise or movement do I gain the most benefit and maybe even find joyful?
*What reflections in my quiet time with the Lord gives me hope, peace and joy?
*How can I keep the process of seeking optimal health from becoming stressful?
*What things can I do to live a more self-sufficient life? What skills do I need to learn or enhance?
*What foods can I grow myself?
*How can I preserve these foods or other foods found in season?
*Where can I buy, barter, or forage for the nourishing foods to fit our budget?
*What herbs can I use to heal our bodies, and/or aid our bodies in optimal health?
*What herbs can I grow and preserve for various uses?
*How can I best care for God’s creation, using the resources given to me?
*How can I include my husband and two young children in this process?
These are just a few of the things that I believe will be a part of having self-sufficient health. Taking charge of my future, seeking optimum health, through self-experimentation, trial and error, and a lot of prayer, I will share this journey. A journey of natural living, self-sufficiency, and spiritual growth.
