If you have been following me for a while, you probably know how much I love natural products. I also love to cook and it is very important to me to know exactly what is in the food that I eat. I strongly believe we are what we eat. Whatever I put in my body affects the way I look and feel.
I’m always looking for an alternative way to get better results both physically and mentally and that is why I meditate.
In a nutshell, I strongly believe in the mind body connection.
In today’s video, I want to talk more about my personal background and also share some secrets I learned recently.
You may not know this, but I am a cultural anthropologist. And I have a master’s degree in anthropology. I have always been interested in cultures, rituals and ceremonies, especially indigenous rituals, shamanism and the wisdom of native Americans. In the past I have tried many indigenous rituals including the sweat lodge, underwater meditation, full moon meditation, eating healing herbs and more.
Both of my grandmothers were into “natural healing” and especially my maternal grandmother, she shared so many beauty secrets with me when she was alive. She used to ask me to pick wild herbs from the backyard and she would show me how to use them. One was cucumber sake for making the skin soft and another was an herb called “lizard tail.” She made tea using it. According to her the lizard tail tea makes your skin complexion clear.
There were many more but unfortunately I didn’t take notes and I don’t remember many of them.
I don’t have many regrets in my life, but this is one of them.
Speaking of herbs, I want to to talk about a documentary film I recently watched. I have always loved documentary films and the topic related to natural healing was so perfect for me!
