Most often I am referred to as Umm Yahya (the mother of Yahya). I am a homeschooling mom. All my children were born naturally including one home birth. My undergraduate degree is in Health Sciences and I am also a trained Childbirth Educator. In learning to manage my own health issues my paradigm shifted from one who reacts (by treatment of illness after manifestation) to one who focuses on prevention and whole body correctness. During this journey I discovered natural (whole) foods. My view of nutrition; the role it plays in keeping our bodies correct or re-correcting in the case of managing illness, broadened. So I decided to go back to school, this time for a BS in Nutrition and Health. In this blog, I intend to share information on nutrition, natural health, and natural childbirth, in hopes of helping others looking for knowledge on keeping their bodies in proper nutritional balance or for less aggressive options in managing their illnesses.
