Hi! Thank you for stopping by and learning a little bit about me. I’m a certified essential oil coach through American Association of Drugless practitioners and doTERRA Wellness Advocate & business mentor empowering women to change their lives. My mission is to help you take charge of your and your family’s health by utilizing the power of essential oils and easy principles of healthy living. Essential oils are the essence of nature, providing us the opportunities to utilize the natural compounds found in nature to support our bodies with living healthier and less toxic lives without the side effects of traditional medicines.
How I became passionate about healthy living
My fascination with healthy living, diet and natural medicine started when I was really young. I was reading books about healthy living as a teenager and that is when I first discover juicing and the benefits of diets and natural medicine. I devoured books about nutrition and diet as well as weight training and fitness in general. I was also an avid gym rat and spent 5-6 days a week going to a local Gold’s Gym to train with the best in the fitness. I had training programs made for me and that is how I learned all about fitness and weight training. I’ve been into nutrition and natural medicine ever since and continue to learn daily by reading publications and through my essential oil certification training.
My Health & Struggles With Crohn’s Disease
I got diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 18 years old. I had parts of small and large intestines removed as a result due to emergency surgery that was performed when it was discovered how severe the inflammation was in my intestines. I was put on medication with hardly any guidance on what I should eat or how I should live. I spent my 20s and most of my 30s dealing with my Crohn’s, dealing with the daily pains and other symptoms of living with Crohn’s while caring for my children and going to work full time. I was tired and hardly ever felt good. The pain was so bad at times that I couldn’t even get out of bed and my husband had to take time off work to take care of me and the children. The medication I was on didn’t seem to make a difference. I would have flare ups on and off. I had a flare up after each delivery of my 3 children. Trying to take care of a newborn with a Crohn’s flare up was not fun. It’s amazing how the pregnancy hormones usually help with keeping the disease in remission but it comes back with full force after the pregnancy hormones drop after the delivery.
My Quest For An Alternative Treatment
I decided that there had to be a better way to manage my disease so I started researching everything I could about natural medicine and treatment of Crohn’s and other autoimmune diseases. I had myself tested to see if I had any food sensitivities. The results came back as intolerance to gluten among few other things. I took myself off gluten and went on a strict elimination diet and then Paleo diet. In about 3 months I started to feel like a whole new person and my pains started to lessen and finally stopped. I slowly added foods in that were not allowed on the paleo diet to see how my body reacted and I was feeling good to continue. The extra carbs I got from potatoes and rice actually made me feel even better. This was more than 5 years ago. Fast forward to today, I still eat modified paleo, a diet that I found works best for me through trial and error. I just don’t ever eat gluten and I remain symptom and medication free. I also take certain supplements to help me which I’ve found through research and trial and error. I want to help others suffering with IBS symptoms or with Crohn’s and Colitis or any other auto-immune diseases. I was taught by my mentor, a holistic medicine doctor, that all diseases start in the gut so one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to concentrate on healing the gut with proper diet and supplements. I can help you guide through what has helped me so please don’t hesitate to contact me here.
My Journey With Essential Oils & My Coaching Certification
I started using essential oils several years ago and was amazed at the benefits for the body and mind as well as supporting my body’s immune system. Ever since then I’ve used them for my family’s everyday health learning as much as I could by reading various publications, books and attending training and seminars. I became a doTERRA wellness advocate about a two years ago when I discovered the quality of their oils as well as their humanitarian causes of working to stop human trafficking, Healing Hands organization and their co-impact sourcing initiative helping people in various countries.
