My name is Erica, I am the person behind Holistic Minded Mom. First off I want you to know I will try to keep this page updated as my life changes. I feel like who we are changes as we grow and our lives ebb and flow along the timeline of life.
Currently I am a stay at home mom of two boys. I am a homeschooling mom and I am a homeopathy student as well. I love anything health and fitness related. I blog here when ever I have a bit of spare time, usually between homeopathy lessons. My boys are still quite young at this point in time, so my life is full to say the least.
I started Holistic Minded Mom because I felt as though the name, and the content you will find here, really encompasses all that I am passionate about. I hope in putting this site up that it will really draw a community of like minded individuals together. I appreciate feedback and love learning. So please comment on posts, add any info you know of, and wisdom from your unique perspective.
My real passion in life is to support and educate others on their road to wellness. I do not believe wellness is found in your doctors office. Wellness comes from personally taking charge of your health, owning it. Eating real whole foods, living clean lives- physically and spiritually, avoiding chemicals and toxins, getting regular exercise and time outdoors, and treating the root cause of diseases when they arise. I do understand there is a time and a place for western medicine, but the western world, America specifically, is grossly over medicated. Many diseases can be treated successfully using alternative, holistic measures, with little to no side effects.
Something I feel is important to know about me is that I am a Bible believing Christian. This is a main point of reference for me. I know the holistic community, a lot of the time, comes from a secular, and even esoteric, point of reference. You will not find this here. I write with the filter of my beliefs and convictions.
With all that said… WELCOME and enjoy your time here!
