Hi! I’m Hirtley.

I believe that integrative medicine and healing is necessary if we want to be healthy and stay healthy.

To tell you a little about me: I grew up in a society with an active natural medicine practice and my family in particular, often used natural medicine and healing practices.

Its not that we refuse to go to the hospital (we are not extreme haha). We simply don’t see the point when we know of simple and effective remedies of common ailments. These remedies  work, are safer, cheaper and more accessible than orthodox medicine. With these advantages, it is no wonder that we go the natural route.

There are times when we went for traditional hospitals when it is the more suitable option. After all, no system of medicine is perfect.

My experiences both as a child and as an adult have taught me much. It is one of the reasons why I believe that integrative medicine and healing is the most efficient and effective system of health care if we want to be healthy and stay healthy.

Passion might sound cliche but that is the description that fits what natural medicine and healing is to me.  It is my passion. I love learning more everyday and trying out different (safe) remedies to see if they will work or not.

I am a firm believer that our bodies are most healthy when we use natural medicine from nature and not laboratories. Pharmaceutical drugs should only be used when necessary. It is unfortunate that many of us (sometimes even me) depend on this method even for the most simple of ailments such as headaches. Natural healing is the best method of healing (scientifically proven)  as it is usually more affordable, compatible with our body system, accessible to the general population and almost has nor side effects.

On this blog, I would like to share with you some of the little knowledge I have on being healthy and healing using natural foods, lifestyle and plants. Most of the remedies that I will be discussing are those that I have had direct or indirect experience with and I am sure of their efficacy.

My main topics on this blog will be women health, natural remedies, lifestyle advise, body care, natural baby care, home first aid etc.

To bring you the best natural remedies and lifestyle advice, I will be consulting with professionals in the field of natural healing such as  Naturopaths and Phyototherapists. If you are interested in natural healing and health care, then subscribe to the blog below  and I will make sure that I keep you in the loop of my latest discoveries and adventures and general information on natural health and healing.

Happy reading and I hope you enjoy your time here with me and learn something new and useful.


P. S. I have a confession; the picture above is not really me. I am still working up the courage to put my picture up on the website. I believe with time, I will be able to do that. I just need to get used to blogging and find the courage to put myself out there. I hope you are not disappointed 🙂 😉
