I was first exposed to alternative medicine 8 years ago, when my husband and three children and I lived in Paris. We had an amazing Ukrainian nanny, who had been raised by her shaman grandmother. So when our children became ill with the normal colds and flu, and even more serious illnesses such as bronchitis, she healed them with concoctions of mustard powder, chest rubs made up vodka and garlic, and baths with chamomile flowers. From that moment on, I wanted to learn everything I could about alternative medicine! Shortly after we left France, I became quite ill. The doctors were convinced that I had a serious case of rheumatoid arthritis, and wanted to give me a series of pills and cortisone shots, but I refused. I knew there had to be another way. I took what I had remembered from my time in France and began educating myself. Through a combination of diet changes and herbs, I was able to cure myself. Seven years later, I have no signs of arthritis!

Initially, my interest in alternative medicine was driven by a desire to take care of myself and my family. But, now that my children are older and I have more time, I can finally formally study subjects which have held my interest for years!

I am so grateful for these on-line courses! They are perfect for a busy mother like me. I can study in the comfort of my home at my own pace. This is a great programme, and I hope eventually to take this knowledge and continue to help not only my family, but also develop my own ‘alternative medicine practice’. Thank you!
