The first records of the use of plants as medicine was set down on papyrus scrolls and parchments, thousands of years ago. The unofficial record of herbal knowledge has been handed down over generations by word of mouth. Herbal knowledge is important for curing ailments, preserving food, dyeing cloth, repelling insects, adding "spice" to our lives and color to our gardens.
Many common garden-variety herbs cross the boundaries between culinary and medicinal qualities. Peppermint (or other mint varieties) can be infused in water to make a tea to sooth a stomach upset or peppermint oil can be added to oils and linments for a cooling anaestheic effect on skin - increasing blood flow to the area to which it is applied.
Specific herbs may be employed to encourage the removal of toxins from the body - to stimulate the gall bladder, liver, kidneys. They may be used topically to increase blood flow to muscular, joint, skin tissues.

Mike J. Review:
I have been coming for the past 5 years. Ear candling has been a great help in relieving pressure and congestion in my ears. It has helped in avoiding the onset of far more serious colds, as has the Doterra On Guard Essential oil blend that Renee makes for me. It quickly breaks up congestion and relieves sinus pain. I’ve always had massages, which relieve neck and shoulder tension. Renee’s Reflexology massages are quite successful in relieving tension and prevention of the onset of colds and sinus infections. Very well worth the money that I spend to see her!!

I have been coming to Renee for massages on and off for several years. Therapeutic massages have helped me a great deal. I enjoy learning about how my body works and what herbs can improve certain conditions. Natural remedies that Renee offers are always the best!!
Let us bring a taste of the European biological methods of treatment to our in-home atmosphere at the The Country Doctor Detox Center.
This center is for anyone who wants to learn fasting techniques, detoxification and how to cleanse and rebuild the body.
In European spa’s, many arthritis sufferers have received much relief with this program. You will arrive at 9:30 a.m. to work on your program of health. Please bring a swimming suit and a towel. Bring some jars with lids to take home any leftovers. The cost of this program is only $300 for the day. These are just some of the examples of what we will be doing.
Dry Brush Massage
Dry brush massage is an important therapeutic measure. It stimulates the circulation; brings the blood to the skin; keeps skin clean from dead cells and impurities; and opens the pores. The skin is your biggest eliminative organ and it is of vital importance that it functions efficiently.
Lymph Drainage Massage
The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system.
Hot and Cold shower
Practitioners attach a great deal of importance to an alternating hot and cold shower. It is administered in the morning. After, the patient receives a rigorous dry brushing and is rubbed with a coarse towel until he/she is completely warmed up. The importance of the alternating hot and cold shower lies in the fact that it stimulates the adrenal and other endocrine glands and reactivates their functions. We call such a shower a cortisone injection-but without cortisone’s undesirable side effects!
Boiling all kinds of available vegetables, but predominantly potatoes, carrots, and celery makes this vegetable broth. The liquid is highly alkaline, mineral-packed broth, which is considered to be of extraordinary importance in biological arthritis therapy. It combats acidosis or a tendency toward a high acidity in the bloodstream and tissues.
Mucus coats the villit of the intestine and greatly inhibits the assimilation of Vitamins and Minerals from the food, resulting in a continuous loss of energy. We recommend keeping the large intestine clean from wastes which will speed evacuation of toxic matter from the system through the bowels. Drinking pure water and taking Ivy’s recipe could be used as an alternative to colonic therapy, two times a day.
