NONI – The All Everything MEDICINE

 

 

It was over 10 years ago now that Genna and I began wild-harvesting Noni Leaves and crafting tea from this most potent all-everything medicine. We would go on jungle hikes to waterfalls, white sand beaches and jungle homes to pick the kindest of leaves. There was this one Noni tree in Moloa’a Bay that was so robust, abundant and giving; and a dreamy waterfall hike in Kilauea that would allow us to fill backpacks with the darkest of green Noni leaves; and a beautiful zone down by Anini Beach that was always lush with rich, healthy leaves and so easy to access on a whim. We soon began making tea with the Noni Leaves, and started selling it at the farmers market and in local Kauai health food stores. We were having so much fun wild-harvesting and crafting Noni Leaf tea, and were so grateful to be able to use this plant to heal, and provide this beautiful healing medicine to other people.Drinking Noni Leaf Tea became our personal gateway to true plant medicine (Kauai style) and we truly believed it had the potency, abundance, and balance to heal the world.

He was running circles around me during the day; and at night, I would fall asleep to his bedtime story. As a competitive high school athlete, I never imagined losing my youthful movements by age 35. I’d spent the last 15 years hecticly traversing the country while working nonstop hours on the phone and computer. Nightly I would “unwind” to steak and wine dinners. The compounded effects were beginning to show. My neck and waist were both inflamed and numb. I desperately needed an interceptor.

Heal Yo’ Self Antidote

Living in the tropics immersed in the natural elements has its many rewards, life lessons and spiritual awakenings. The more we trust in the balance and the natural order of the world around us, the less we fear. We gain more confidence in our innate ability to become one with the balance within that natural order, and no longer play the victims of circumstance. This has empowered us to trust in the natural laws of nature and in our own ability to self-heal.
