About Mother Nature's Eden

It's our mission to provide a nourishing environment for people to learn preventative medicine and discover a healing lifestyle. 

Mother Nature's Eden is located in the heart of downtown Calhoun in the Historic Johnston-Hall Clinic, the first hospital in Gordon County. The three-story structure was originally Holland's Drug Store. Many of the same homeopathic remedies sold in the 1930's are available in our store today.  Kay Goldberg started Mother Nature's Eden in 1998 in an old two-story Victorian house located two blocks north of the present location. She received her N.D (Doctor of Naturopathy) Degree from Clayton College of Natural Medicines and her bachelor's degree from Lagrange College.  She has continued her education with courses such as Healing Hands (Kennesaw), and the Electro-dermal screening certification from both Energetic and Standard Enzyme. 

Personal health problems led Kay to seek natural remedies. In 1994 Kay received standard treatment for breast cancer, which left her feeling sick and desperate. She visited an herb shop in Lagrange, Georgia where a technician read her eyes. This natural healing diagnostic technique is known as iridology. It revealed that her body was very toxic and that she also had poor circulation.  Kay started taking the herb Hawthorn Berry, which is known as the heart and circulatory herb. Within two months she felt like a teenager again.

Even before she had cancer, she had been diagnosed with many ailments and illnesses, including: irritable bowel syndrome, cysts, and endometriosis. She had not previously known how the body signals health problems with symptoms such as swelling in the ankles, cold hands & feet and numbness in the hands while sleeping. Her body had been telling her, even as far back as her high school, that she had poor circulation. Unfortunately, it was not until adulthood that she was able to interpret the swelling in her ankles as a sign of this circulatory imbalance. Hawthorn had such an amazing affect upon her health that it made her a believer in herbs.

Hawthorn is now the business logo for Mother Nature's Eden and a symbol of the herb that began Kay's journey towards health. Kay and her staff at Mother Nature's Eden are committed to helping people help themselves.  Customers are encouraged and trained to notice signs that indicate imbalances within the body. Muscle testing and iridology are two of the natural techniques that offer clues to the state of our health. We believe that listening to one's body is a key to optimal health. Whether choosing a product or discerning the root of an imbalance, there are many tools available today to help us reach our health goals in a natural and non-invasive manner.
