Wanda Fox-Miller; Owner Elijah Farms
Elijah Farms' influence came from my great-grandmother Mary Eleanor Tharps Winn. Mary Eleanor graduated from A.D Williams clinic Medical College of Virginia now known as VCU Medical Center of Richmond, Virginia. As an RN licensed nurse, she would provide medical treatment and give advice on herbal medicines throughout her community. She also had a book of medicines that she kept with her detailing ailments and the herbs used to treat them such as sarsaparilla for the common cold, turmeric for headaches, and ginger for nausea.
Mary Eleanor’s book of medicines and education has influenced the generations of men and women after her to continue providing medical advice and herbal treatments to marginalized communities.
After our son, Elijah was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia I decided to add to my grandmother’s book of medicines, and create a list of herbs that would help patients treat their sickle cell anemia while also providing the latest updates on treatment and diagnosis of the disease.
I wouldn’t have guessed that thorough research and patience would lead to endless phone calls, and emails asking for the same knowledge of treatment that I’ve been giving my son.
Thank you, Mary Eleanor. May your dedication to community and education live through us and the generations to come. Love

This blog introduces to some and reintroduces to many home remedies and doctor recommended treatments for minor infections (common cold, flu) to suggested medicines associated with sickle cell anemia, diabetes, and heart disease. I’ve spent hours researching not only the quality of these medical treatments—but also the credentials of each doctor.
