Hi there!  Have you ever been on a new roller coaster at an amusement park which had so many twists and turns it was hard to anticipate what’s coming next?  Perhaps that’s how my health journey can be described!

It began when I was 13.  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  Thus began years of medications, other health ailments stemming from having fibromyalgia, and more health issues because of taking medications.  Fast forward thirty-some years when my friend introduced me to a hoslitic doctor she had been seeing.  My husband and I suspected that processed foods, GMOs, chemicals and other “unnatural” things in our lives affected us more than we realized.  And she confirmed it.  She gave me an eye-opening book to read which propelled us to seek out more natural, unprocessed foods for our family.

I continued this journey by seeing a doctor in functional medicine.  He put me on an autoimmune protocol diet a litle over a year ago.  This has been a life-changing experience for me!  Who knew that so much I had put into my body during my life had been making everything worse!

At this point, with the help of this diet, lots of supplements and vitamins and careful supervision of my doctor, I have been able to stop some medications that I’ve been on for years!  It’s quite amazing!  However, sometimes I still have occasional heartburn and falling asleep at night can be tricky.  Headaches can sneak up and muscles can ache.  The good news is that this is where my essential oils journey begins!  I am so thankful for a natural solution to help support my body! I don’t have to rely on chemicals like before!  I firmly believe that when God created this earth, He also gave us natural remedies for us to use that our all around us!

Now, I can’t just keep this all to myself!  I’m so excited to share with you what I’ve learned and to continue to learn on this journey with YOU! {Oh yeah, you AND my husband, three growing kids and even my dog.}

Here’s to our health!
