Start Here

Welcome to Modern Alternative Mama!

I’m Kate, and this blog was kind of my dream.  I started in October 2009 when I had two kids under two and I was researching everything health.  I had to tell everyone what I was learning!

What I remember most about those early years is how overwhelming it all was.  So if that’s where you are now, take heart — you’re not alone.

This page will help simplify things (hopefully!) and point you in a good direction to start.

The basis for health is diet!  I don’t believe there’s any single ‘perfect’ diet; we are all individuals.  It does matter that most food is unprocessed and whole.  That doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite dishes or shop specialty stores for weird ingredients.  Here are some of my favorite recipes:

I also have a general meal plan to help you get started — and it’s budget-friendly, too!

Natural Remedies

Despite our best efforts, we can’t stay healthy all the time.  When we do get sick, natural remedies are the best!  They’re all we’ve used for many years and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

It doesn’t have to be all or nothing — you can use one here or there, especially as you’re getting started.  The best plan is to have a few go-to options on hand ahead of time so you’re ready when something hits!

Some of our most popular options:
