Welcome to the @NaturalMedicine introduction! This is a project to support and give a little steemlove to all advocates of natural healing across the Steemit platform, and we're looking forward to having you onboard!
We’re a project run by @riverflows, @mountainjewel and @holisticmom, three Steemfolk that are passionate about the benefits of any medicine that supports whole healing of our bodies, minds and hearts.
Why Natural Medicine, and what ARE natural medicines?
With medical systems largely dominated by the interests of Pharmaceutical and Insurance companies, it can be hard to find our place within the current healing paradigms. So often these systems alienate the very people they profess to serve whilst padding their pockets as populations get sicker.
Whilst western medicine has it's place, is it the only answer to our problems?
@naturalmedicine believes wholeheartedly in alternatives, ones that we can practice at home and often prevent the onset of illness and disease and very often cure it. Natural remedies are as old as humanity, and in fact ‘alternative medicine’ was only labelled so to highlight it’s difference from ‘mainstream’ medicines a.k.a drug company endorsed medicines. This type of healing is time tested and proven and it’s our dream to connect Steemfolk with this information through @naturalmedicine on the Steem blockchain.
Natural medicines are often simple and whole medicines, differing from the magic pill of Big Pharma. We want to bring natural medicines to you and highlight the natural medicine advocates on the Blockchain!
Creating a Natural Medicine Community
Being enthusiastic and passionate about natural healing ourselves, we believe in the importance of promoting and celebrating the natural medicine community. We’re amazed by some of the curation feeds on Steemit, but for this one, we wanted to streamline it so it was principally about good content that went beyond the broader spectrum tags like ‘health’ or ‘medicine’ or ‘healing’, and introduced a tag that was a little more specific.
If it wasn't for the power of community on Steemit, I wouldn't have found @hungryhustle, who designed this fabulous heart & lotus logo for us.
The daily growth of Steemit has really opened our eyes to how much knowledge is in the hands of the people right here. Hence, we also decided to open up our Discord, which anyone can join once we’ve checked your profile to make sure you’re not a bot! In this way we’re hoping to bring awesome people together that care about natural healing, creating a well spring of knowledge and to archive the good stuff so it’s on hand whenever you might need it. We’re hoping that one day you’ll be able to open up the Discord channel, type in a search for say “nasal de-congestion” or “garlic” and up will pop the posts that you needed the most.
We’re hoping to build a solid community that can support, upvote and nurture each other in holistic ways. Please jump on the Discord and we’ll welcome you with a hug and a cup of tea. Or maybe just a smiley heart emoji – it’s the same energy and spirit all the same.
The #naturalmedicine tag
We’re hoping the ‘naturalmedicine’ tag will be a go to for health conscious people everywhere on Steemit, uniting us all in one big group and making it easier to find good alternative healing information and knowledge.
Are you a herbal practitioner? A naturopath? A breathworker, yogi, energy healer? An ayurvedic scientist, a TCM expert, or know your essential oils? Then @naturalmedicine wants to support you!
We’d love for you to use this tag so we can find and promote you easily, so if you’re an alternative therapist of any kind, have a love of herbalism and natural cures from our beautiful Earth, have homespun wisdoms passed down through the ages, are into specialist areas like Chinese medicine or Ayurveda, are investigating special food diets to support health or any other kind of alternative therapies, this is the tag for you.
By using the #naturalmedicine tag, you’ll be far more likely to be found in this vast sea of content. You'll be most definitely found and supported by people who share the same interests and passions as you do. The more people use the tag, the more easily we'll find each other, and enthuse each other to keep sharing all the wonderful knowledge we have accumulated, and contain to gain, through our openness to natural medicines. Check out the amazing Steemfolk we've already supported by upvoting and re-steeming - @thelaundrylady's celery juice and @artemislives pro-biotic beetroot are absolutely winners in our book, as is @rainbowrachel's beautiful cacao ceremony!
Supporting You However We Can
We want you to feel supported, and we want to reward you for your efforts. At the moment our voting power is small, but we’re planning to power up every penny we earn to build this community. We’ll support good quality content with our upvotes.
We also plan curation posts, published when we find three good posts in a row. This means we could curate twice weekly or fortnightly, depending on the content you good Steemfolk are putting out.
Of course we’d love any delegation you can spare – if you think what we’re aiming to do is awesome please consider delegating any amount to @naturalmedicine to help really get this project growing.
NaturalMedicine – Our Future on Steemit
We aim to build a solid curation project with credibility and influence, to attract people interested in delegating power to the cause. This way we’ll be able to spread the word to a greater audience, which will benefit those who are willing to take Steemit seriously and encourage others to give it a try.
For our mission, we want the project to be a community work and not a centralized project; all the earnings from @naturalmedicine for now will be converted into Steem Power and the earnings distributed to those creating amazing content.
