"If the people let government decide
what foods they eat and what medicines they take,
their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state
as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."
Our natural state is one of alignment, balance, and health. We were made to thrive.
In this day and age, the health industry is just that, an industry.
Big pharmaceutical companies try to control medicine, and the peoples freedom to choose what kind of medicines they want to pay for, and from that, the health industry creates customers and patients with their unsafe, often addictive drugs that they sell as "the cure".
So I began thinking of a way I could help my fellow humans, and I came up with this idea, but I'll need your help to bring it to life!
Help me raise money to start an organic herbal business!
What is your vision for your business all about?
The vision I have for the buisness is to be able to provide people with a healthy, natural altenative to mainstream medicine. I would be creating home-made organic herbal remedies, teas, cosmetics and self-care products. I plan to grow certified organic, non-GMO medicinal herbs, as well as safe wild-harvested herbs to create the herbal products.
Along with the herbal remedies, I plan to sell organic seeds, hebal medicine making supplies & books so customers are able to learn how to make their own remedies at home and take responsibility for their own health.
This is only the beginning of my dream. Eventually I would love to have an organic farm and open an organic grocery store/herbal clinic to provide people with organic products at a cheaper-than-regular-organic prices, so that healthy choices are accessible to everyone.
Why is organic herbal medicine beneficial?
The first important thing to note, is that my products will be made with certified organic ingredients, which means NO additives, GMO, pesticides or unatural ingredients.
The imporatnce of consciously knowing what you put in or on your body should be what every person needs to pay attention to because if you wish to prevent illness, you should try to prevent putting chemicals into your body. Herbal medicines have been used all around the wold in every culture & are used as remedies, cures & most importantly as preventative medicine. Though Herbal medicines are not a "cure-all"solution, they have the power to help the body heal itself and boost different aspects of body functions.
Your body is perfectly capable of keeping itself healthy and healing itself when it needs to, but only if you take the initiative to allow your body to do that, through making smart food choices (organic produce, vitamins, supplements), excersize, drinking lots of pure water and using natural products. Herbs and plants of all sorts have many beneficial properties, and we can learn alot from them. To get a deeper understanding of herbal medicines, you will need to look at the individual plants used & why they are used in various different ways. Every plant on the planet creates specific chemical compounds which is a basic part of their metabolic function, which are used for different medicines. One herb may have a variety of uses.
Tell us about yourself and why you wanted to start this?
My name is Naomi, and I have a burning passion for organic products, gardening and helping heal my fellow humans and the planet. I am heading off to school to begin my professional training as a community herbalist and holistic nutritionalist.
I chose these paths to take because I feel a great need to help people the best way I can and I feel it is extremely important to educate and share with people why its important to make real healthy choices instead of going for the cheaper, poisonous mainstream products that keep you sick rather then heal you.
I want to move this vision forward with an intent to heal others from a state of perfect love and acceptance. I really do want to change the world for the better. I hope you can understand where I am comming from and help me achieve this dream I have.
How will you be spending the donated money?
Well, the money is going towards the cost of buying the bulk organic products, such as herb seeds, dried herbs, beeswax, and oils as well as packaging and some tools to make the products. I plan to begin selling the products at my local weekly market, just to get started and then grow from there. I also plan to use the donated money to start up a professional website to sell online as well, and some money will go towards marketing and my business license.
What is in it for the people donating their money?
Well the rewardss will vary depenfing on how much you donate.
There is a list of the rewards for the different levels of payment on the right.
For those who happen to donate less then $10 will recieve a email thank-you art.
& For those who happen to donate $250 or more will recieve a super fantastic surprise gift! (Along with gifts listed already)
Those are the planned gifts thus far, it could change (and if it does I will let you know) but do not doubt that you will recieve an amazing reward in any case!
Thank you for your time and I hope you will consider helping me out!
