Our Story

While working as a nurse, Molly Rachael had the honor and heartbreak of helping patients heal through and despite the side effects of allopathic medications and surgeries.  All their lives and stories have become part of her, like her beautiful family, pulling her to study more natural forms of healthcare with proven results free from negative side effects.  This lead to her life now of daily intense study with Ayurvedic Medicine Schools & ancient natural medical texts, Traditional Thai Medicine Schools, Theravada Monks, Hawai'ian Kumu, Yogis and master teachers of all forms of Indigenous and botanical medicines.  The greatest healing she has found is: as her Grandma says, "kindness," as Dr. Vasant Lad says, "everything in life is waiting for our awareness," and in the words of St. Francis of Asissi, "that which we are looking for is that which is looking."
