Teresa M (Street Articles Author)

Hi there, I'm Teresa and I enjoy films, politics, current affairs, travelling, cooking, alternative medicine and keeping fit. I've now discovered my love for writing and sharing what I feel passionate about - using herbs and plants to benefit the body, mind and soul. Coming from a Chinese background, using herbs has always been a part of my lifestyle and it has been practiced for centuries by the Chinese! I hope to discuss a few of them that aren't as well known in the West, along with popular traditional herbs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace be with you.
