Welcome to Our Healing Roots, a blog exploring natural medicine that returns us to the roots of health and wellbeing. Our Healing Roots, LLC, is a private natural healthcare practice and experiential learning center that advocates the safe use of integrated, natural medicine. Many healing ways have gone by the wayside with the advent of conventional medicine. While it is important to receive professional medical advice for serious conditions, there are many things we can do at home to prevent disease and maintain our health. The Latin word for doctor is docere, which means to be a teacher. Our Healing Roots wholehearted embraces the importance of teaching in healthcare, so that people feel empowered about their health and wellbeing.

The Dream "Staycation" Contest
My friends taught me about the concept of the "staycation"; it is a vacation where you stay at home, at least in your home town. Imagine...a vacation with no travel hassles and relatively affordable.
A 2010 study by the Applied Research in Quality of Life journal that found that people have a higher degree of pre-vacation happiness compared to post-vacation happiness.
So, with summer just around the corner, I think it is perfectly reasonable to raise our level of happiness and plan our next staycation.
Between now and June 21st (the first day of summer), I am running a contest. The winner will receive a gift certificate for a free class or healing touch session at Our Healing Roots, LLC.To enter the contest, respond to this post with your staycation description AND send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your description and the best way to contact you if you win. A winner will be selected randomly from all who enter. Good luck!
