What does "holistic" mean to you?
mind, body and spirit are all equal parts of a living entity....
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
many many years.....to many to know when it really began..
a little about me
I am a holistic mama to 4 lovey ladies, ages 8, 5 1/2, 3 and 8 months old.....I began my holistic journey in earnest with the birth of my first daughter. Along that journey I have been fortunate enough to train as a lactation consultant, have birthed in a hospital, a birth center and for my last two births, midwife assisted home/water birth.....the last two being lotus. We cloth diaper, eat and grow organically and are APers.....I am very much interested in alternative, naturapathic, herbal and holistic medicine .....I have a background in premed, nursing, psychology and anthropology......we are very excited about our upcoming move to Charlotte and are so very pleased to have found a group of liked minded families. Looking forward to connecting .....
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
My husband and I have been running a small side web/software consulting business for 8 years - we try to bring our knowledge from working with larger business to smaller businesses and the non-profit sector. In addition I have trained for many years for my LC license and will sit for my exam when my youngest can go a bit with dad and sisters while I sit for the exam :D

"Interesting. I do find info about Arnica as a poison ivy relief alternative. I hadn't heard of that. Homeopathic Apis helps for swelling, hives also. Pat"

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
