Sadly, the world lost “I Am Woman” singer Helen Reddy in late September. Her two children, Traci and Jordan shared the news with fans, calling her “a truly formidable woman.” Helen was diagnosed with dementia five years ago.
Her children wrote, “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29, 2020, in Los Angeles. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and a truly formidable woman. Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever.”

I’m so excited to share with you my free online class at the Home Medicine Summit on Saturday October 19th. I will be demonstrating how to make your own mineral rich vinegars at home.🌿We will cover several recipes and you will see how easy it is to expand your medicinal kitchen cupboard. Vinegar is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the benefits of the plants, as it is a supreme way to extract minerals, and the result is delicious and can easily be incorporated into your diet. Herbal vinegars are a great alternative to alcohol extractions and a fabulous way to get the nourishing plants into children.🌱My class is one of many amazing offerings available to you free by signing up for the Home Medicine Summit.
