There has been a lot of noise in the media lately on Essential Oils getting a bad rap from the FDA.
This situation gets me fired up! I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach because I was sick and tired of our current health care system. I was sick and tired of getting sick (sinus infection, strep throat, taking antibiotics, steroid cream for dermatitis) the list goes on and on. When a big part of the actual problem was in my digestive system. Just like Hippocrates has always stated decades ago, “all disease begins in the gut.” Why did it take so long for someone in the medical system to identify this? I realize we are doing the best we can and our medical system is becoming much more educated on identifying the “Root Cause” and living the lifestyle of Prevention. This is what I teach: Holistic living through Whole Foods, Essential Oils, Stress Reduction and Mindful Exercise.
However, I believe change is going to take time.
A decade ago, I was introduced to a Functional Medicine Doctor that asked me questions such as:
- What is your lifestyle like
- How often are you commuting?
- How many hours are you working?
- Are you working out? (Of course, the answer was yes….but maybe too much).
- Is your job stressful?
- Do you have any spiritual outlets? (Nope).
This was the first time someone asked me all sorts of questions lifestyle related in addition to having me describe my pesky symptoms such as:
- Fatigue (falling asleep commuting home).
- Needing a Chai Tea or Coffee at 3:00 pm
- Turning tomato red when eating anything gluten related or drinking alcohol.
- Stomach bloating, heartburn when barely eating anything.
- Trouble sleeping and night sweats at the age of 30!
- Skin rash.
Wow, I was a hot mess! After the initial consultation I knew I needed to evaluate my lifestyle and habits.
I was educated that if we have too much bacteria in our digestive system (our GUT and Second Brain) we are in trouble. Silent inflammation was attacking my body. I was living with Fight-or-Flight Response – Major Adrenal Fatigue – h. Pylori – Parasite and Gluten Sensitivity.
I had no idea that the decades of taking antibiotics, steroid creams and masking my major food sensitivity was destroying my gut flora (my digestive system and immune system). Many health issues I had been dealing with finally made sense: such as fainting, anemic, miscarriages to name a few. Once I finally treated the issues I decided to commit and put some skin in the game by making a Lifestyle Change. My health massively improved….and so did the people who I care for.
My Energy, Immune System, Skin issues all cleared up and were glowing and thriving.
When I started using Essential Oils I was really blown away. I learned and researched as much as I could about the credibility of this type of healing modality. The proof was in the pudding and the experience was uplifting without any negative side effects and down time most importantly. My family and I hardly ever go to the doctor’s office because we le the oils when needed. We tune in to our Lifestyle and Rest and Manage Stress when out of whack. We Reduce our Toxic overload when needed. This is living the Holistic (whole body) Lifestyle.
I encourage you to not give in and chase the symptoms. Don’t get Fed up and live the Yo-Yo way of dieting and self sabotage. YOU have the tools and right to embrace healthier choices that will suit you. I am here to coach you the entire way!
As a mother, wife, daughter to aging parents I will not stop using Essential Oils. I am FIRED Up more than ever to le my Wellness practice to help Educate and Empower you on how we can embrace this much-needed “Wellness Movement” within our nation. This is why I do…what I do.
You can’t put a patent on wheat grass, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, – Holistic Living.
