When I was in my early 20’s, I was diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease called interstitial cystitis (IC). According to Harvard Medical School, the quality of life for someone suffering with IC is analogous to someone undergoing chemotherapy. While this disease was not life-threatening, it causes a great amount of debilitating pain. My doctors told me I had one of the worst cases they’d ever seen. Sadly, the treatments they offered me honestly horrified me.
One was a drug that could make some or all of my hair fall out. I didn’t like this prospect. Another treatment involved a device, sort of like a TENS unit, that would electrocute my pelvis. The idea was that after the electrical stimulation wears out your nerves and then you don’t feel as much pain for a period of time..hours or even a day. The higher you can tolerate the electrocution, the more tired the nerves get and the longer you can deaden the pain. Finally, the last option was taking opioids, but my doctor said I needed to join a support group for the addiction I would develop.
None of these felt right to me. They wouldn’t make me whole, and I felt like I was a healthy person buried inside, and we just needed to uncover that healthy woman. I turned down each of these options and instead turned to integrative and holistic treatments. Many things helped but nothing fully cured me. After many years of searching, the Lord led me to homeopathy and am completely cured of IC.
Interestingly, about 12 years after I was first diagnosed with IC, I ran into information about the very first drug that was offered to me, the one that would make some or all of my hair fall out. They now know that people who are on this drug for about 15 years are going blind because the drug drills holes in the eye’s retina. I was so thankful that I had the wisdom to turn this drug down and seek out a better way. While the road to healing was slow and long, I ultimately became whole, kept my hair, kept my eyesight, stayed away from electrocutions and addictions, and am thriving today.
This is the journey that brought me to write a curriculum and program for your children and family to learn about true health and healing. Time is merciless, and marches forward. Our children will become adults sooner than later, and the time to prepare them is now.

Where does their farm name ‘Milk and Honeybee Homestead’ come from? After suffering from debilitating auto immune issues for years, Paola was finally introduced to the wonderful world of Homeopathy. Since then, Paola has met many other wonderful homeopaths around the world. After a lot of learning and several different homeopathic remedies, Paola is free from most of those illnesses which burdened her for so long.
When it came time to name their farm, she read the passage in the Bible in Exodus 3:17, “There, the children of Israel—who also suffered great trials—were promised a land flowing with milk and honey,” and she felt a deep connection to this scripture. Where she couldn’t drink milk before, she can now digest it. Where there was pain and suffering, she has been blessed with peace and healing. And now, their own piece of land flows with milk and honey. After great personal trials, they are blessed to further know and commune with God and allow Him to become known to them on their little homestead.
