Today I am going to talk a little about myself and how I came around to be the woman that I am today. My life started in 1948. At the age of three my birth father passed away and my mother married my now dad who back then adopted my older sister and myself. There are many parts of my younger days that I don't remember - maybe I've blocked them out.....in the meanwhile two other brothers and a baby sister came around. Life seemed fairly "normal" until I was about 15....we had moved from Southern California to Dayton Ohio because my dad had a new job..O! This is the other thing...I could never figure out why my mother would be ironing my dad's underwear at 3 o'clock in the morning and then watering our front lawn at 11 p.m. I found out later on that she was hooked on diet pills....that was her thing and at 15 she kindly told me that it looked like I was gaining some weight (I wasn't) and "here, honey - take this pill. It will help you"...trusting my mom I took the pill and loved it SO much that I asked her for another one the next day....little did I know this was the beginning of my addiction to everything! I went on a pill rampage at 18 - water pills - then diet pills - I was really a pill head.....had to stay thin or I would never find a man - (my mom told me).....this was the late 60's early 70's.....hippie nation! everything was in! I was into uppers, downers, sidewinders anyway but straight, ok? Then it was the pot and then the psychedelics - for three years straight - every day - I was over the edge one might say....but so was everyone else - through 4 failed marriages and hundreds of men I crashed one day. I was probably 50 yrs old.....my then husband had been popped on a UA while we were truck driving - we longhauled for some years - and so he couldn't drive -

Special friend and book author Shelley White returns to EntheoRadio to tell us about the amazing insights shared in her recent writing project and the resultant book (title coming soon).
Captain Hugh T Alkemi and Shelley will speak dynamically about things such as cannabis and plant medicines for healing and health. Callers and questions are welcome during the live show.
SHELLEY WHITE works as a writer and editor, and is studying to be an herbalist specializing in Lyme disease and other infectious diseases. Shelley is the author of 'Cannabis for Lyme Disease and Related Conditions: Scientific Basis and Anecdotal Evidence for Medicinal Use,' and is a regular contributor to sites such as Collective Evolution and The Mind Unleashed. She has written for various other sources as well, including SKUNK Magazine, Mind Body Green, and Natural News. The topics she most frequently covers include cannabis, psychedelics, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, alternative health, and consciousness.
Her favorite pastimes are reading, learning, and spending time in nature. She is fascinated by plant medicine and plant consciousness. She credits her drive to continuously learn and connect with plants to her experience with Lyme disease, which taught her the importance of herbal medicine and expanding her mind. She firmly believes that, in the end, you are your own physician and the only one capable of fully healing yourself.
