It is with great celebration for the New Year that I write this first note. We have much to be thankful for from 2017: the opening of the Healing Leaves Center offices, the new faces we have gotten to know, the new ideas for collaborative work that have opened their doors, the many folks that we have helped get well along the way, to name a few.
As we turn the corner to 2018, we welcome you, our on-line community, to conversations that focus on the needs of each one of you and a platform for discussion of questions and concerns, celebrations and landmarks that we find together. The options for maintaining health and being whole and well are as numerous as the unique design that each of you possesses. These pages are intended to have a dialogue together about those things that concern you; how we can help one another, those issues we see as threatening, our testimonies of discovery, those times of celebration, and coming alongside those who need us to stand with them. After almost 40 years of working with food, herbs and supplements to help people find the road back to health; I have found and continue to find, considerable resources, books, reputable companies, brands, recipes galore and multiple options for your individual lifestyles. We are here to help you sort them all out. We also have a number of collaborative professionals that can add their voices to mine to bring a rounded perspective of health experiences to help you along your way.
Please DO comment, ask questions, and let us know what concerns you. The realm of health has many facets and each topic will be helpful to someone out there even as it is when you ask the question. We will make every effort to answer each issue fully and look forward to growing as we learn from each other.
Here's to 2018!!
With warm regards for health, joy and peace in the coming year!
Cathy Dodge, Director
