The Most Important Thing That’s Probably Missing From Your Backyard
About Nicole Apelian, Ph.D
I am a mother, an herbalist, a survival skills instructor, and a biologist.
I graduated with a degree in Biology from McGill University and further developed my herbal skills in the desert of Kalahari.
I lived there for years with one of the oldest cultures on Earth, the San Bushmen. Many San still live off what the land provides in terms of food and medicine, and many of them live well to a ripe old age without ever taking pills or seeing the inside of a hospital.
When I was just 29 years old, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
MS is an incurable autoimmune condition that makes your own immune system attack the brain and spinal cord. I was in constant agony, most of the times in a wheelchair.
The Western treatment prescribed by my doctors didn’t provide much relief. For the last 20 years I’ve been managing my MS using the natural remedies that I personally grow in my backyard. I went from being pushed in a wheelchair to being fully alive. So much that in 2015 I survived for 57 days straight in the wild on the History Channel’s TV show Alone.
I turn to my small backyard pharmacy whenever I’m in pain, catch a cold, have fever, and so on. I haven’t stepped foot in a pharmacy in a very long time. I have all I need here in my backyard for me and my whole family.
