Hello and welcome to MotherOfHealth where we are dedicated to helping you find fresh ideas and natural solutions for healing and living an empowered life.

The name MotherOfHealth came from the mother of all healing, Ayurveda's tagline.

I've been learning and practicing the great principles of Ayurveda and natural healing now for more than 20+ years.

Ayurveda believes health is not an accident, and being healthy is primarily our own responsibility.

If we are not healthy, it may be our own fault… at least to some degree.

Most of us want a happier, longer, and more empowered life but we don't know how we should live to get one.

We have you covered because our dedicated team is committed to publishing topics on:

  • Holistic health and self-care

  • Healthy food and recipes

  • Natural and organic skincare

  • Weight loss and detoxing

  • Growing food

  • Green living

  • Survival and preparedness ideas

We know that you're looking for more than just a website – We want to help you master the art of natural living and self-care.

We have a passion for digging deep into the natural solutions we post here, so we feel blessed to keep learning and growing with you.

We believe humans are happiest when they are healthy, learning, and growing.

We love to hear from you, so please feel free to reach out anytime.

We also invite you to follow our pins on Pinterest.

I'm Jackie Parker, the Primary Editor for MotherOfHealth.

I grew up on the south shore of Lake Superior.

Living side by side with dense pine forests and the largest body of freshwater gave me a deep love of natural beauty and mother nature.

Health and wellness came in stages for me.

Because Northern Michigan winters tend to be long, and the growing season short, there was a shortage of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Consequently, I entered adult life with habits that were not so great for long-term health.

At the time, I thought I was relatively healthy but whenever someone in our home came down with anything, I'd get it next.

Colds, flu, sore throats and even pneumonia were regular imbalances I dealt with every winter. In fact, my family often referred to me as “Bambi” because they saw me as delicate or fragile.  And then…

In 1999, I began to study holistic health and Ayurveda. I was looking for a natural way to navigate through menopause, help my daughter with her allergies, and prevent chronic illnesses that most people deal with by middle age.

Most of all, I didn’t want to be dependent on prescription medications in my golden years.

In 2000 my late sister and I enrolled at the California College of Ayurveda in Grass Valley, CA, and life began to shift toward alternative medicine, natural remedies, aromatherapy, detoxing, and holistic lifestyles.

It was a transformational time, and I quickly began to share what I was learning with family, friends, and other people that had the same desire to live better.

I've authored and co-authored hundreds of detailed wellness-related articles, creating a huge knowledge base of information related to food, nutrition, and holistic lifestyles.

It seems like I've always had an interest in personal development. I love to learn, be curious, and have a love of books. I'm a writer, researcher, friend, sister, seeker, yogi, coach, auntie, mother, wife, and grandmother (in no particular order).

These days I homestead on one acre in Ojai, California with my husband, daughter, son-in-law, and their two small boys. We also care for two Toy Poodles, a German Shepard,  a cat, three chickens, and a garden.
