Felicia Cocotzin Ruiz is an indigenous foods activist, medicine maker, natural foods chef, and curandera who reconnects people with their ancestral foods, earth medicines, and health practices. In her first book, “Earth Medicines: Ancestral Wisdom, Healing Recipes, and Wellness Rituals from a Curandera,” she shares her expertise, time-honored natural remedies, and life-balancing regimens in a movement to reclaim the kitchen healer approach to health and wellness with Indigenous wisdom and whole food cooking.
Jiling chats with Felicia about her book, and the gentle forces that powerfully shaped Felicia’s life to create her kitchen curandera approach. Learn about her morning ritual, ancestor altars, Grandma Chiquita, her book-writing process, the Four Elements, being a “Forrest Gump curandera,” opening to surprises along the journey, and the importance of embracing your whole self.
