Hello, and welcome to my new blog, Health Matters. I'm Amy Mayfield, editor of Herbs for Health, sister publication of The Herb Companion. In this blog, I'll write about medicinal herbs, healthy foods and interesting tidbits related to health and natural medicine. I plan to include lots of recipes that I hope will inspire you to try new things at home. I'll also talk about great resource books I find helpful and new scientific research I come across.

A little about me: I've been working for Herbs for Health for almost nine years. I telecommute from my home office in beautiful, rainy Corvallis, Oregon, home of Oregon State University. I've been married for seven years (we met in college at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California) and we have two incredible kids, a son who is almost 5, whom we adopted at birth here in Oregon and a daughter who is 20 months old. We all traveled to Taiwan to adopt her in March 2007.

When I'm not editing and taking care of my kids, I enjoy exercising (I'm a regular at our local Jazzercise center), scrapbooking, cooking and keeping in touch with my friends and family who are scattered from coast to coast. I'm also becoming more and more interested in local eating and subscribe to a community-supported agriculture program through Gathering Together Farm (www.GatheringTogetherFarm.com).

Thanks for checking out my blog!
