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. More information about this business can be found at www.ourhealingroots.net.

A Canning Marathon & Upcoming Events
Harvest is rolling finally rolling in, and it is a busy month of canning in the kitchen. We have been putting up beets, marinara, tomato sauce, peach jam and relish these past couple of weeks. Our nutritional savings account is growing! The quality and taste of locally grown food in jars is hard to surpass.
Last week, I invited our friends over for dinner. I served our canned vegetables on top of peas and rice topped with lemon-tahini dressing. It was sublime and well liked!
If you missed our canning classes in June and July, I'm happy to announce we have three more opportunities this year for you to join in the fun...
Saturday, August 17 (1030-1130)--Merry Schepers and Katrina Bogdon will be teaching a free canning and preserving class at Groggs Green Barn in Tulsa, OK.
Sunday, August 25 (2:00-3:00)--Katrina Bogdon will be at the 306 Phoenix House in Tulsa to start her Monthly Natural Health Gatherings. This event is by donation. She will be talking about preserving the harvest, the latest scientific updates in nutrition, and sharing recipes.
Saturday, September 7 (11:00-5:00)--Autumn Canning and Preserving Class ($50). This will be another one of our hands-on and instructional canning classes. The fee includes cost of all materials and you can take home some of what you make. To register, see www.ourhealingroots.net for instructions or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
