Summer is a time filled with fun, vacations, warm sunshine, and...food-borne illness. Have you experienced this? Perhaps you've spent months planning summer vacation only to leave with memories of nausea, vomiting, and riding home on the plane in adult diapers.
Take heart, summer vacationers! These next two weeks Our Healing Roots, LLC will be featuring food-borne illness and natural approaches to addressing this bacteria party in the stomach and colon.
Prevention of food borne illness begins with good food handling practices. If you are purchasing, transporting, preparing, serving, or storing left overs, you are part of the chain that can help prevent food borne illness for yourself and others. The USDA has made a great summer handout about safe food handling practices and it can be found at the link below.

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.
