Herbs for Lyme Disease

An Herbal Tea for Lyme Disease

Living in Connecticut, and owning in a holistic healing center, I see so many cases of Lyme disease each year. Lyme disease is this lurking menace in our beloved forests that sometimes makes it difficult to enjoy nature at ease. In fact, our DIY recipe for Natural Deer Tick Repellent is our #1 most popular blog post! While taking precautions to prevent Lyme disease is of utmost importance, what if you’ve already contracted it? Western medicine offers extended rounds of antibiotics which sometimes leave the body depleted. In order to support our clients undergoing treatment, I formulated an herbal tea for Lyme disease with medicinal powerhouses including ginseng, goldenseal, and kelp.

A Closer Look into Waldorf Education

I have always been fascinated by the Waldorf educational system. Waldorf schools offer classical education that integrates experiential and artistic learning, in an environment emphasizing academic excellence, respect for diversity, and reverence for the natural world. Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Therese Leaderer and Christina Dixcy, both faculty members at the Housatonic Valley Waldorf School in Newtown, CT. As Waldorf faculty, their mission is to develop each child’s unique capacity to engage meaningfully in the world by inspiring creative thinking, moral sensibility, and passion for learning. Here is some of our conversation about Waldorf education in our modern world.
