Women as Guardians of Health and the Family Healer

September 25, 2012

No, not Guardian Pharmacy.. but literally as guardians of health for her family and community.. Women used to play that dominant role before.. with grandmothers passing on the baton to their daughters and granddaughters.. or even young mothers passing it on to their young daughters. Why have we gone so far from that ideal scenario?

Now with youtube, its easy for mothers to learn tricks and tips and record themselves, this by far is the best way of passing the baton in the modern age..

Really really adorable mother daughters team…

Once I recover from another round (and hopefully last bout) of tonsilitis (this is the body’s way of detoxing too)…am also going to create some videos with my daughter 🙂 That way, I could pass on what I have learned by “telling her”,”showing her” and “doing it with her” ==> doing things with your child helps to keep the experience into the long-term memory part of the brain. If everything falls apart, and her or mine’s long-term memory fail, then we still have videos to pass on to the next generation..

I urge you all mothers to do the same…make it fun and upbeat! (i will try to make it fun and upbeat too!! 🙂

Proverbs 31: 25-27 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

The Concept of Family Healers
Prior to 1930’s women were by default the family healer (of course a few good men also took that role — just like my grandpa). The family healer is a self sufficient guardian of health. In this context, a family healer can be a male or a female..

The School of Natural Healing offers a course on herbalism so that ordinary persons like us can be a Family Healer (meaning we only offer our services for free to family and relatives only). I am considering to sign-up for the correspondence course…
