THIS IS MY STORY
About 11 years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. It's funny how a cancer diagnosis can kick your butt and make you fix your life. Unfortunately, after treatment, when I returned to my normal life, stuff happened (as stuff has a way of doing) and my attention & dedication to my health went up in smoke. At the time, I had to step in to care for my elderly Mom who was suffering from dementia, while my husband had to retire on disability. Meanwhile, I continued working full-time nights (as a NICU RN) & was the very lucky Mommy of a beautiful four year old daughter! Needless-to-say, I was drawn away from my wellness goals and a totally stressed-out mess!
So, before I knew it, an avalanche of health problems descended upon me. Soon, I was taking pills for high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, anxiety/depression and my weight was going up, up, up! Then, a shoulder injury one night lead me to the ER, where it was discovered that I had a heart arrhythmia. Instead of going home after my shoulder put back in place, I was transferred to the Heart Center, where they stopped and restarted my heart...an experience I do not recommend, btw. The next day, with a bag of prescriptions to regulate my heart rhythm, my arm in a sling, I knew my life would never be the same. I prayed for an answer. I got it into my head that moving to Maui would solve all my problems. (Who doesn't love a geographic cure, right?) But, as the saying goes, "Where ever you go, there you are." I found myself happily walking the beaches of Maui, but physically still a mess!
After my Mom passed away in 2016, I slowly began to use the oils. I was, if I'm honest, the typical "Doubting Thomas.' But, being so worn out after caring for my Mom, I was willing to try just about anything to get my health back! Soon, I started to feel better physically and emotionally. I didn't know how, I didn't know why and, frankly, I didn't care. Now, four years later, my wellness journey continues with the help of doTERRA essential oils. Many of the healthcare problems that once befell me have either dissipated, or gone away. Each day, I'm becoming a healthier and happier me! Essential oils also keep my family healthy. I learn more about these special plant essences by studying the oils, becoming certified in Aromatouch Technique and as a Certified Oil Specialist, and being apart of the larger community of Wellness Advocates and Customers, who generously share their stories of how these oils changed their lives! I am no longer just surviving, but thriving, & getting better and better everyday!
My mission now is to help others create a holistic lifestyle that is healthier & happier than ever before. What's your dream? If it's to get healthy & lead a natural solutions lifestyle, let's chat.
Peace, Love & Aloha,
