“Thank you for this wise advice about body image, a challenge I struggled with for years. Making the shift from shame to gratitude for the body that has been so kind to me, was cathartic.
Health Stand has been integral in my journey.

I wish every woman (and young girl) who punishes herself with body shame has the opportunity to read this post. Being kind to ourselves is loving and ever so healthy. I’m 65 and it’s taken me this long to learn this vital truth.

PS – My forearms rock!”

As you may know, the Health Stand Nutrition logo features a strawberry 🍓. Strawberries are often known as ‘heart berries’ to Indigenous Peoples. "Because of its shape, the wild or natural strawberry is an important food and medicine in many indigenous cultures in North America.

🍓“The strawberry teaches forgiveness and peace. The strawberry is shaped like a heart, and strawberries are known to our people as heart berries.” —Elder Lillian

🍓This little plant carries many teachings. Elders say, “Just as the O-day’-min (heart berry) is connected to the strawberry plant by a vast system of leaves, runners, and roots, so is the heart connected to all the organs and parts of the human body. The heart is at the centre of the human.”"
