"To this day I change what I eat in rhythm with the season..."
Cure Wild owner, Sara Haston shares about her healing journey, diet, health background and why she created Cure Wild.
My healing journey began as a teenager who suffered from depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue. In high school a yoga class was offered as P.E. credit and without hesitation I signed up. Yoga helped me feel calm, centered and confident. It became my medicine and awoke in me a desire to to explore more natural healing modalities. So I dove in and committed to healing myself and others through cooking, herbs, coaching and yoga.
My diet is ever-evolving and I'm okay with that. To this day I change what I eat in rhythm with the season and my activity level. Here are my tried and true keys to feeling nourished.
- Eat organic and plant-based
- Eat seasonally and locally
- Include healthy fats
- Choose sustainably raised fish and meats
- Include fermented foods
- Cook with care and intention
- Enjoy meals with all the senses
- Offer gratitude and blessings over the meal
I discovered herbs when I was working on my Master's degree. My stubborn chronic fatigue was still lingering even though I was practicing yoga, meditating and eating healthy. Before turning to Western medicine I decided to try out an herbal remedy. I stumbled upon Siberian ginseng and after just a few weeks felt my energy levels restored. I was officially committed to getting to know the plant world better.
Five years ago I was accepted into an internship at Herb Pharm. I received formal herbal medicine training by herbalists, naturopaths, doctors, medicine makers, and growers.
My health education includes a Master's Degree in Integrative Health Studies from the California Institute of Integral Studies, where I trained in the following modalities.
- Integrative Nutrition
- Wellness Coaching
- Wellness Program Management
- Indigenous Medicine
- Native American Plant Medicine
- Sacred Food Practices
- Global Health
- Healthy Aging
- Horticulture Therapy
I created Cure Wild for people interested in cultivating a healthy lifestyle and looking for products, resources and consulting to take their self care to the next level. Cure Wild aims to be an invaluable resource for being your best self. If you want to feel inspired, supported, empowered, confident and happy Cure Wild is your go-to resource for natural living.
