Life can be stressful, overwhelming, and sometimes difficult to cope with. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Tara Mackey shares her natural beauty secrets and meditation rituals so you can break free from stress, depression, and anxiety.

Modern medical professionals will tell you to take various prescription medications, which can ultimately do more harm than good. Healing is all in the mind and can be attained through finding harmony in your own life and resorting to natural remedies already provided by the very environment in which you live.

Growing up, Tara suffered from dependency on various prescription drugs for depression, anxiety, and ADHD. She witnessed her best friend’s decline and suicide and watched helplessly as the effects of heroin addiction took a hold of her mother. At age twenty-four, she decided that enough was enough and quit her prescription meds cold-turkey in search for happiness. Today, she is drug-free, stress-free, and happy.

Cured by Nature is Tara’s personal story combined with her knowledge and advice to battling personal demons and coming out victorious. Follow Tara as she shows you how to adapt and grow, using various herbal remedies, breathing exercises, and mind-strengthening techniques that will help you be a happier and better you.
