Hi! My name is Sallie, I am mother to Raven,6, and Aiden, 6 1/2 mos. I've recently moved to Connecticut and haven't met anyone here with similar lifestyle choices. I have been trying to live a more healthy, natural life for some time now as well as teaching my family to live this way. I am so happy I found this board, and I am looking forward to meeting new and interesting people.

Hi and

I'm in Middletown (central CT) -- there are several playgroups in the area and a couple AP/natural families e-mail lists or discussion boards. Check out www.nflct.org and The Crunchy Crew at yahoogroups.

I don't know where you are in the state, but Papaya Patch in West Hartford is a back-to-basics baby store that hosts free parent-and-child groups and has a calendar of events; so does the Family Wellness Center on Main St. in Middletown. The FWC doesn't have a website, but pm me with your e-mail address if you want and I can send you a copy of their calendar in Word.

Cheers~

Hi, and thanks for the info. I'm in New Fairfield, which isn't too close to where you are, but it's nice to know that there is someone else in Connecticut who is a little like me, i was beginning to feel a little lonely!

Just wanted to say thank you for the great welcome, and also welcome to SHRI, I'd love to hear more about you being a homeopathic doctor, what exactly you do, how you became one, anything really. Also where are you living now, because you said you are from India. I have always had a fascination for Indian culture, I think it is so beautiful. So if you're up to it I'd love to hear more about you.

Hi I'm in Ct too! I live in W. Haven, it's nice to know there are other concerned Mom's out there! Everyone I've met since I've moved here seem to be very unattached and mainstream! You've restored my faith in the state!

Hello,
Thank u all for the grand welcome and I was very happy that u were fascinated by Indian culture.I was in Cleveland in the year 2000 for about 7-8 months.I was pregnant and I had hyperemesis,but I recieved a lot of love and affection in U.S. by the hospital staff and the doctors.I have completed
my Bachelor's IN HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE AND SURGERY which is a five and half years course and practicing HOMEOPATHY since last ten years.

SHRI, did you get your degree in India or the U.S.? I have not come across any schools that give you a degree in homeopathic medicine. Good luck with everything.

Hello Ladies,

My daughter (who refused for years to even touch a computer!) is now an avid mothering.com communicator and has been urging me to say hello to everyone. She assured me that even tho' I'm so "old" (51!!) that I might still enjoy it.

I'm a mother of 10; the oldest is 31, the youngest is 6 1/2. We've been married 32 years (last week!), home school, and enjoy a pretty close to all-natural lifestyle. I'm an herbalist and an avid lover of homesteading and promoter of the Weston A. Price studies. Four of the ten children are married and have given us 6 grandchildren already!

We just got a cow (we're foster-owners) in September -- she's wonderful! I milked in a snowstorm for the first time tonight. It was so peaceful. Made me think of what the stable in Bethlehem must have been like. (No place for a King to be born, that's for sure--cold, smelly and wet !).

Is there anyone out there with similar backgrounds? (old but still young!?)

MyRHmade (P.S. I don't know if I've sent this to everyone on the new site, but I thought I was) (And I don't know how to use smilies!)

HELLO,
I was born and brought up in INDIA and I completed my Bachelor's in HOMEOPATHY in India.In U.S. also there are many medical colleges that offer degree in HOMEOPATHY.To name a few 'Hahnemann College of Homeopathy'
in California,'American University of Complementary Medicine' in Los Angeles
and many more.Homeopathy is offered as a post graduate degree after completing M.D. in Medicine.There are other Certificate Courses also.But I don't know about them.Anything you wish to know about Homeopathy,u are most welcome.Presently,I am practicing HOMEOPATHY in INDIA.
