"There is no disease that God has created, except that He also has created its cure."
A phrase I grew up hearing, in fact, I remember the first time I was told it. A wise caring Grandmother in a Sudanese village uttering it to me as she prepares her unique healing concoction in the kitchen.
Why was she doing that? It wasn't for her - she was as strong as they come. She was preparing it for her epileptic grandson that's a bit drowsy from the two pills of Tegretol, a common anti-convulsive, he had for breakfast. That grandson is me.
I never took what my grandmother said seriously, but whenever I'm with her, I always had her black cumin seeds and honey along with her unique mix of herbs. It wasn't till a few years later, I had enough of the chemicals. I needed another option, a way to take back control of my health. All I could think of is my Grandmother. So I started making her concoctions and having it at home daily, religiously. Day by day, week by week, month by month, I started feeling better and I took more ownership of my health. In just two years, I was off Tegretol - no more drugs needed.
I started House of Wisdom to demystify the ancient wisdoms through products that you feel connected to and use every day. I vow to find the best and right products for you, that form a holistic natural solution, and to of course, sprinkle that Grandmother care in every box.
