Introduction to “Treat Yourself”

By Donna Kamann

Tincture of Thyme Healthcare opened on February 10, 2020. In my earliest visions of the new practice, I had hoped to offer a Tuesday afternoon group gathering called “Treat Yourself Tuesdays.” In addition to providing guests with information on general healthcare topics, there would be a selection of housemade teas, herbal medicine samples, and time in a calm, healing space. Perhaps it would become an urban version of a healing circle.

One month after opening the office, the pandemic arrived and options of offering a live Tuesday event were postponed. Here we are, 2 years later, still wondering what to do about public gatherings. I trust this will eventually sort itself out, but in the meantime, our health and access to healthcare have changed, creating even more reasons to “treat yourself.” 

With the new year, I decided to refresh the Tincture of Thyme Healthcare webpage, and to add a blog space to share information and resources. Although our computer screens are no substitute for the warm, lively space we could have created together in my office, I hope to infuse these pages with timely information and good stories. Stay tuned for winter topics such as insomnia, stress management, and immune system health.

I welcome your comments, questions, and office appointments for healthcare!
