Who We Are

My name is Osalina Berman. I began gathering herbs as a small child at 5 years old with my mother and Auntie's. I studied Yoga, Herbology and Macrobiotic cooking at a Montessori School at 15 years old in 1968. I also lived in a wilderness valley, 13 miles from any roads and studied Hawaiian Herbs. I primarily lived on wild herbs and fruits from 1974 - 1976.  I lived in a cave and Built a home out of plants and trees on the Island of Kauai. 

I then moved to Maui and studied with many renown teachers, shamans and Doctors from around the world. In 1979 I got a License as a Massage Therapist and in 1981 a degree as a Master Herbalist from the Emerson College of Herbology. I served on the board as Secretary of the Maui Massage Therapy Association from 1979 - 1981. I was Vice President of the Hawaii Holistic Health Association from 1981 - 1982. 

I gave birth to 2 beautiful daughters in 1983 & 1987 and had a practice as a Massage Therapist, Herbalist and Holistic Health Practitioner for over 30 years. In 1999 while living in Tucson Arizona I Founded ABCpeace and began writing. I am currently a writer in Tucson Arizona and have published 5 books on Holistic Health available on Amazon, other online book stores and in Tucson at Aqua Vitae.

Why Choose Us

Better health through better living

Promote Natural Healing

I am a strong believer in Natural healing because at 15 years old while studying herbal remedies I was given a great remedy for strep throat. I used 1 Tbsp. of fresh ginger root as a natural antibiotic and to open lungs and respiration, 1 Tbsp. of Kudzu root as an anti-inflammatory to soothe my throat and 2 Umeboshi plums also natural antibiotics that is very astringent to draw out toxins with 1 Tbsp. of Soy Sauce (Tamari)

Within 3 days my strep throat was gone. Prior to this I had used pharmaceutical antibiotics which took weeks to work and I kept getting it back. That was when I began studying about herbs and natural remedies in earnest and never had strep throat again. I believe that had a profound effect towards later making this field of Natural Medicine; a life long study and practice. 

Strength in Immune System

Using Herbs strengthens your immune unlike many pharmaceuticals that weaken it, by providing nutrients that build the blood, bones and tissues and clean the colon, blood, liver and spleen, the organs and glands do not have to work so hard to maintain good health. 

Fewer Side Effects

Although some herbs and foods can have side affects, especially if you are allergic to them, it is usually minimal compared to the vast array of side affects from pharmaceutical medicines and they build the body and improve health rather than just mask symptoms. Many Pharmaceuticals often create other illness that you later have to treat. 

It is Cost Effective

The Cost of educating yourself on knowing what vitamins, foods and herbs to use for preventing and alleviating illness is so much less than living unaware of the affects of diet and unhealthy life choices. 

We all eat, so why not choose Organic Non GMO and healthier Foods. Natural remedies can prevent huge bills for pharmaceuticals or surgeries that in many cases are bankrupting us due to the high costs of Health Insurance. 

Regular check ups and seeing a Doctor you trust is also an important part of health care, as well as getting tests. 

Pharmaceuticals do have their place in certain instances and sometimes even surgical procedures are needed. 

However, in general taking Natural herbal and nutritional preventative measures, a good exercise regime and a positive attitude can save many lives and also huge fortunes. 

Doctors definitely have their place in preventative care but many now see that a healthy diet and lifestyle is the best approach to health.
