Lynda Smith C.H., R.Ac., TCMD

Looking to nature to help heal one's ailments is a lesson that Lynda was taught at a very young age. Everything from making an onion and goose grease poultice to help relieve lung congestion, to wrapping up in layers to promote sweating so toxins would be eliminated were practiced in her family environment. Home remedy and Chinese food books could be found in the home bookcase along with Gray's Anatomy and The Complete Medical Guide. This all helped inspire a thirst for knowledge in the alternative health field.
