Hi! My name is Basma. I am a Board Certified Health Coach by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), and a Certified Essential Oil Coach. The motivation behind this website began seven years ago when my husband a long time sufferer of IBS was told that he would have to live with the discomfort as there was no known cure for his condition.
The phrase 'no cure' kind of intrigued me to start reading more about IBS, with the aim to help him find a little relief. And before I knew it, I was introduced to a whole new world with a plethora of information on natural remedies and healing.
I felt as Aladdin must have on opening the door to ‘the cave of wonders’, awed and excited. With determination and gusto I continued to read each and every health-related article on alternative medicine that I came across, checking published research and attending countless online health summits...and I still haven’t stopped.
Needless to say, my husband and I became self-inflicted lab rats as we tried countless supplements and techniques from shilajit and colostrum to eating dirt, detoxifying, grounding, rebounding, wearing safety goggles at night (and yes, our children would laugh at us) and a lot more. I still remember those frequent hour and a half round trips to buy organic bones for our bone broth. No matter how exhausting the task, I persevered determined to leave no stone unturned in my search for better health.
We, slowly at first, but then rather dramatically changed our entire lifestyle: we shifted to organic food, natural and/or organic personal care products and supplements. Chemical detergents and cleaning agents have since never again found their way into our house, a factor which has had a hugely positive impact on my allergy symptoms.
It has all paid off and our efforts have definitely not been in vain. My only regret is that I didn't have the information I now possess 14 years ago when I lost my father and three other beloved family members to cancer all in the span of five short years.
Along the way, my husband and I have talked to family, friends, colleagues and anyone willing to listen on the benefits of shifting to a healthier and more natural lifestyle that is both inspired by the wisdom of our ancestors and backed up by modern science. However, the problem that faced us (and almost everyone we knew) was the unavailability of quality supplements that we could easily access. It is true that the market is buzzing with a variety of brands selling supplements but when it comes to quality the choices are limited. It became a very tedious job to find supplements without fillers, binders, preservatives and other nasties. Believe me when I tell you that I know what I am talking about because our garbage bin can testify to the number of bottles that were ditched.
Then, an inspirational idea took root and www.ancient-traditions.com came to light. I will stop here with the sincere hope that you'll be a part of the rest of the story. A story dedicated to ’health’, ’healing’, ’nature’, ’wisdom’, ’care’, and ’true science’.
