Hello, I am Kele- Co-founder of Plant Powered Remedies. I am excited about sharing our products and helping you become a healthier YOU!
My health journey began when I was advised to have a mammogram at the young age of 30 years old. I had to decide whether I wanted to know if I was a carrier of the breast cancer genes that took my mother Sherry’s life at the age of 37. The options that were before me didn’t sound very appealing. 1. Mammograms every year to check for cancer or 2. Genetic testing in which case could include a mastectomy if I was a carrier. With those decisions laid before me, I sought opinions of those wiser than myself. Thankfully, those astute friends and family pointed me to a more natural path.
That path included the following:FOOD- “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ~Hippocrates. What we put in our body matters!GUT HEALTH- “All Disease Begins in The Gut.” ~Hippocrates. Our immune system working properly depends on the balanced microbiome that should be found there to keep us healthy.
Epigenetics: “the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself.” Oxford Dictionary. By how we treat our body we can determine whether a gene is activated or not.
Naturally, health became my passion and I read, listened to podcasts and online summits, and researched as much as I could in my very minimal free time. I began implementing ways to prevent cancer instead of letting it define me and in so many ways write my death story. I want to be around for my amazing husband Jason and four boys for as long as possible. This change of thinking lead me to work with natural health professionals to optimize my health instead of treating the symptoms. Getting to the root cause became my goal. I have found so many products along the way that have helped me become a healthier version of myself and am so happy to start offering those products to you.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. ~Benjamin Franklin
