"Angela-- with regard to your preschool question, we also have spirited little ones that thrive around other children. We thought about homeschooling, but then found a great philosophy of learning. We found a "progressive" preschool, which…"
"Jenn--- Do you already have your midwife? If not, I believe the midwife I used last year has moved from her practice in Huntersville (with Dr. Peacock) to somewhere around Gaston Memorial. She was INCREDIBLE. Her name is Marcia Chiluck. She made my…"
"I've never heard of it, but am very interested in learning more... anything to help with my little ones' food intolerances... it looks like there is a doctor on Sardis Rd (NAET of Carolina). Have you called to talk to anyone yet?"
"What a wonderful, surprising, big OOps--- congratulations!!! When is the official due date?
As for the headaches... if you can't find an acute remedy to help, keep in mind that Dr. Sandrine Martin, up in Cornelius, is the most incredible…"
"Hi Joy-- we use the Aquasana system. We have the undersink system, and also filters that attach to each of our showers. I bought them from Aquasana.com, and they do a monthly payment plan and send new filters every 6 months, so it isn't such a…"
An endless journey of finding more natural ways to live. For me, so far, the most important 'discovery' was opening my eyes to the fact that the medical establishment may not have my best interests at heart. That has opened the door to so many other things, and I am just beginning!
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
I started becoming interested after the the birth of my son 3 1/2 years ago, and then became extremely interested while pregnant with my daughter. Prior to that, I sometimes tried to eat organic, and I was a vegetarian, but I had no idea what holistic living could entail.
a little about me
We moved to Charlotte 4 years ago (from Chicago), and I have had two children since coming here (my son is 3 1/2 and my daughter is 1). Since moving here, we have been trying to lead a more natural life, including medical care (i.e., homeopathy, naturapathy, energy healing, no vaccines, etc.), foods (organic, trying to understand raw, etc.), raising of my children (attachment parenting, still breastfeeding both, co-sleeping, etc.) I am amazed at the things I have been discovering along the way.
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
Well, I'm not sure it's an 'offering,' but I am an attorney at a very large law firm in Charlotte.

I just had someone ask me about needing an AP/homeschool friendly attorney. Do you see individuals? She is needing someone regarding an ex-husband, I believe. She lives in the north part of Charlotte and cost was a concern. Any recommendations would be appreciated and I'll pass them along.
"I wanted to see if you were around tomorrow but now my sweet Elizabeth has thrown up twice in her bed and so we will be staying home from daycare. Thanks for your number. How have you been feeling? I will try calling you over the weekend."
"I just have to add an update about Dan....
I LOVE HIM! He is sooooo sweet! He is very curious. We were all building a horse shelter, and while the rest of the horses could care less what we were doing, and spent the afternoon grazing, Dan was in our…"
"I was all set to go to the grocery shopping gig, and then couldn't make it! I think most of my problem right now is I have to drive my kids to take care of the horses every single day, plus soccer runs, which my husband has actually been good…"
"I've had Bee School for the past 2 months on Tuesday nights. It's made the MNOs impossible and extra nights off hard. I'm saving my time to see Tori's presentation on Sunday. I will be back with the MNOs in April.
We had some…"
We have only two folks RSVP'd to come tonight. I hope that others will join us. My husband comes home early so that I can attend. But, if we are going to have limited participation, I'd rather cancel the gathering in advance.What are your thoughts? Are the days, times, frequencies an issue? Same with the MNO?Thanks, PatSee More
