Mara Cherry is a Nutritionist, Medicine Woman, and Plant-Lover. She created Jungle Mama in 2020 to offer natural healing solutions that reconnect people to their ancestral healing practices. She affirms that “Alternative Medicine” is the original medicine and has been overshadowed and suppressed by Conventional Medicine. In finding the way back to mama in the jungle, her customers are able to heal themselves from the sickness that has come along with living in this colonized society.
She has had proven success in helping people heal themselves of migraine headaches, nutritional deficiencies, uterine fibroids, parasites, insomnia, anxiety, menstrual irregularities, and more. Being a black woman raised in America she has dealt with some of the common medical conditions for women of color like chronic migraines and menstrual irregularities. Not to mention the typical medical treatment for women of color.
Women of color are her first priority in healing. Unfortunately, it is scary how irresponsible this demographic is often treated in Conventional Medicine. After feeling unheard, ignored, and dismissed for so many years, she wanted to create a space where women of color could be heard and also take control of their health while avoiding harsh drugs and surgeries or procedures. Although this is her area of focus, she is passionate about everyone freeing themselves of health issues and having a better quality of life.
