What's with the name: Herbal Gifts from the Father? Some Christians are concerned about using alternative medicine because of the pagan/new age beliefs that are often prevalent among natural healers. I had similar frustrations. I chose the name, Herbal Gifts from the Father, as a reminder, to myself first, that our heavenly Father has given us these gifts. They are not the gifts of a pagan mother (Earth, Nature, Gaia, etc). I chose this name to help Christians feel more comfortable using herbs without the baggage that may be keeping them from exploring the wonderful healing gifts the Father has given us in plants. Please don’t misunderstand me; I have great respect for my mentors, many of whom are not Christians and have pagan/new age beliefs. In fact, you will see many posts that come from or are inspired by my mentors. My purpose is not to slander or abuse them. I love each of them and owe them immensely. I look forward to continuing my herbal learning at the feet of my beloved teachers.

Food addictions: Another excellent post from Aviva

I am a major candy fiend, and not chocolate, either (though I do see good quality 65% or more dark chocolate as health food).  I'm into the fruity, sour, gummy types, things like Tart Garden Children (names changed to protect the innocent) especially.

There are reasons why we have a hard time eating just one salty, sweet or crunchy snack.

Aviva Romm has another great post, this one on dealing with food addictions.  Read it here.
