4+ years ago I did something that changed everything.
After suffering through a very flu-ish winter, I reluctantly bought some essential oils through my friend. I had somewhat scoffed at the idea months earlier, but after the winter we had I would have paid anything for better (plant-based) immune support.
We were already using natural, holistic remedies. I wasn’t sure what more these oils could do that I wasn’t already doing. But I knew I did not want toxins or side effects, and I trusted my friend, so I jumped in on faith alone.
As I started using the oils and telling people about my successes, others began to follow. As the group of us grew, I found a bona fide sisterhood. I was having fun and I was helping people and that’s all that mattered.
I soon learned “oils” were just the tip of the iceberg.
I learned why we need to remove toxins from our homes. Why we need to heal our guts, and how that is the source of nearly every ail (physical, emotional, mental). Why most bottled supplements are counterproductive. Why the health of our skin matters and how we are hurting ourselves by putting synthetic chemicals on it.
People often tell me how they admire my clean lifestyle. How they wish they “could be more like that.” I wasn’t always this way.
I used to get migraines. I used to have mood issues; probably even depression. My stomach lining was inflamed and I would vomit blood. My digestive system was wacky. I slept like shit. I drank too much. I popped pills. I had knee pain. I was diagnosed with osteopenia. My docs kept prescribing pills, which (I now see) did me worse. I took supplements that did nothing (other than cost me money). But not anymore. None of it. I stopped “going to the doctor” and started doing my own research. I found a naturopath to get me started and learned the rest on my own.
If you aren’t feeling anything but your best, feel free to reach out. No pressure, just guidance. I have never in my life felt purpose like I do now. There is a better way and I’m happy to show you the path.
