Meet Maria Adam, Founder of Tribeca Homeopathy

Today I sat down with Maria Adam founder of Tribeca Homeopathy.  Maria is the in house homeopath for Maiden Lane Medical and Soho Gynecology. 

Maria's son Maziyar, is in the same class with Brinkely and the two of us met at lunch duty at the kids school. We immediately connected because of the kids but also because she has a sweet and generous sense about her.  She always takes care of Brinkley when she's around her and she is just a very caring person. The more we got to know each other the more I noticed myself asking Maria for advice regarding treating the kids. I wanted to know her opinion. There are so many options out there for treatments that are homeopathic. Maria treats eczema, headaches, migraines, ADHD, anxieties, panic attacks, recurring infections (lungs ears etc), hormonal imbalances, digestive issues and so many more. 

With the flu season approaching I started asking Maria her thoughts on the flu shot. I am always unsure about giving it to the kids and myself. It seems that there are so many different strains of the flu that it's not guaranteed that the flu shot will guard you against all of them. I am not against giving the flu shot and am still considering it but whether or not you choose to have the vaccine or not, here are some great ways to stay healthy during the cooler months.

Maria's tips for boosting you immune system & staying healthy:

  • First it is important to make sure you are well hydrated and eat healthy food and cut out processed food as much as we can.

  • Manage gut flora by taking a good probiotic and drinking kefir (preferably unsweetened).

  • Find ways to manage stress (eg, exercise, meditation etc)

  • Use Homeopathy to strengthen your constitution and reduce your individual susceptibilities (i.e. genetic disposition).

  • Increase vitamin C & D intake during the cold months

  • If you come down with a cold or flue, take extra Zinc for a week (be careful not to overdose)

  • Golden Seed Echinacea tincture available at whole foods can be great support for for flue and colds

  • Tribeca Homeopathy also sells acute remedy kits (that comes with 36 homeopathic remedies) for self prescribing at home for minor ailments (Not life threatening).

*Obviously for any life threatening situations you must go straight to ER
or dial 911.  

  • If you have never been well since a traumatic stressful event or surgery/injury, abuse or never been well since mono, homeopathy can help bring balance back to your system. To learn more about Homeopathy & what Homeopathy is, click here!

The good thing about homeopathic medicine is that it does not interfere with conventional treatment and can be taken along side for extra support to speed up healing process.

Meet one of my favorite moms in the world... Joanna

Joanna Moeller is a stay at home mom of two gorgeous girls. We met years ago when our older ones were in nursery together at the Montessori school on Gold Street in FiDi.  The older kids were in class together and became very close. Joanna and I both had younger girls and would always have playdates together with all the kids at their gorgeous Tribeca apartment. My daughter still loves going there and playing with all the girly toys and running around like a maniac; trying on all their clothes and always going home with something Joanna's girls "gave her"... it's a little girls dream. And Joanna never fails to have the apartment stocked with tons of the kids favorite snacks. But on occasion Joanna also hosts us all for dinner. She makes the most gorgeous spreads of pastas, salads, chicken (even home made paella!!!) and there's always wine and fun. She is not only one of the sweetest moms I know but also the best home chef. Check out her blog post under Lifestyle/Entertaining. She's dishing up the most amazing week-day recipe that you'll absolutely love and she breaks down how she makes it so we can all do it ourselves!!!
