Hi there! My name is Beesan and I have been living in Dubai for more than ten years with my family. My background is in journalism and communications, but over the years I developed a passion for holistic health and a natural lifestyle.
What I am
What I am in my heart is a journalist with a passion for helping people feel empowered to take control of their health. I will be trying new products, testing out new ideas, researching the latest in the holistic health field, and making it all relevant to us living in Dubai and the region. I have a certificate in Dr. Schuessler Tissue Salts and will give you lots of tips on how to use them here.
What I am not
It’s important to point out that I am not a doctor or nutritionist and my posts are in no way a substitute for sound medical advice. And, while I will review healthy recipes, places to eat, skin care and treatments, this is not a beauty or foodie blog. I won’t be inventing yet another rendition of the coconut-chia smoothie, but I will be telling you where to get the best ingredients to make your own, on a budget if possible.
Where am I from?
I am Palestinian-American born in the beautiful state of Colorado. I grew up as an expat in several countries, including my primary years in Dubai (when Al-Ghurair centre was the only mall – imagine that!). I spent my childhood summers between a ranch in the U.S. and a quaint village near the mountain town of Ramallah. I returned to Dubai as an adult, fell in love, married and had some expat kids of my own.
