Thank you Town & Gown Magazine out of Starkville, MS for your thoughtful and sweet article on the apothecary in the Sept 2015 issue.
“How to feed, clothe, house, and heal ourselves is primary education,” said Lindsay. “Learning how to do this with largely locally available materials is what I call freedom and independence.”
“Through extensive study, Lindsay expanded her knowledge and application of herbal preparations, as well as methods of traditional food preparations, wild foraging and other alternative health modalities such as yoga and meditation. According to her, five pieces — diet, mindfulness, herbs, movement, and social support — helped her move forward in life and into her life’s purpose: Sweet Gum Springs Apothecary.”
“We become aware that something is off and we pursue ways to integrate ourselves again so that we can be at home in our own skin.”
“I get emails and messages from people telling me how something I said shifted their consciousness to realize how they could better their lives.” Of course, Lindsay added, it is their own creativity and determination that helped them along.
