Garden Therapy

Planting the seeds is exciting!

     If you have been following along I’ve talked a little bit about how nature is healing. How it was designed to heal us and assist us in our search for perfect balance. But, what if you can not get into nature. The answer is to create your own natural environment. Create a garden for your health. 

     Just like being out in nature, gardening can heal you both mentally, and physically. Many of you live in the city and can’t always get into nature. However you can bring nature to you through a garden. Even a couple of potted plants can help to heal you. 

     Studies have shown that patients in the hospital recover on average, one full day faster when allowed in a garden setting versus those patients who stayed in their rooms. This healing effect was even noticeable when the patient had a view of nature versus looking at a wall. It’s pretty obvious that gardens, like nature, have healing powers. If you can get outdoors you will heal faster.

Healthy and a sense of accomplishment!

     When you are in a garden you are healing your body and mind. When you are working in the garden you are exercising while healing your body and your mind. The minute you plant a seed you have developed a connection to that plant. Just like a baby, your new plant needs you to guide it until it can survive on its own. Plants, like your children, need a little help at first. If you guide them while they are young, give them nourishment and love, they will give back in abundance when they are on their own. 

     This simple process of nurturing plants greatly benefits your mental health. It makes you feel alive and full of purpose. It gives you a reason to wake up everyday. Even on bad days when the world is crashing down on you, the minute you walk into your garden, the challenges and stress of life seem to evaporate. It’s like magic. 

Pride and success!

     Growing your own herbs, fruits and vegetables is also very fulfilling. I can think of nothing I like better than picking a tomato off of the vine and eating it. They just taste better when they are home grown and fresh. You also get the awesome feeling of accomplishment for creating and nurturing life. The plant you loved and cared for will give back in an over abundance of food or flowers. Which brings with it an abundance of happy feelings. That’s how the universe is designed. When you give freely, you will always get back in abundance, and that abundance will make you feel happy. Here is a little gardening hack:    

     Always pick your fruit and vegetables in the morning. I swear they have more flavor than late day harvested foods. I have my own theories why this is and maybe in my next book I’ll fill ya in on that secret. Stay tuned. 

Gardening builds confidence.

     There is no better way to achieve a sense of self worth than planting a seed and watching it grow, giving it some love and nutrients along the way, then harvesting the food, or just enjoying the flowers. You get an amazing sense of accomplishment. It’s a major boost to your ego and it definitely gets your endorphins flowing.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
