Being South American, I had curanderas (healers) in my family, so I was raised with an understanding of alternative healing. Despite ending up in the medical profession as a young adult, I never stopped turning to natural herbal remedies first. I’m a highly sensitive person and with that, I found my body was just as sensitive, as it doesn’t respond well to medications. So, when I came across Essentials Oils and learned how much more potent they were then the dried herbs, I embraced them. I used them in one form or another for many years, along with my herbs. During this time I was always on the search for the highest quality Essential Oils. I tried various brands, but it wasn’t until I found dōTERRA’s oils that I had some amazing experiences. I finally found a brand that really worked, that was pure and safe and most importantly they didn’t have side effects like most synthetic medicinals.
When I first started with dōTERRA…financially I couldn’t commit at the level I wanted to, despite fully knowing how amazing these oils were. Yes, I still used them but sporadically, my first experience with them was after I had some major dental work done and my body couldn’t handle the pain medications. Using OnGuard and Clove on my gums and teeth brought me much needed pain relief. At the same time my youngest was struggling with low immunity, bouncing from one antibiotic to another. Again, OnGuard provided him with the immune support he needed. Not to mention using Breathe and some of the other oils to support him during seasonal threats, like Peppermint to help him regulate his body temperature. I can go on and on about how these Essential Oils improved our lives. And gradually they started replacing not only my medicinal cabinet but also my cleaning supplies and lastly my nutritional and emotional support.
But like I said at the time, I didn’t step into living a wellness lifestyle as I have now, and that was a mistake. The last couple years my health turned for the worst and being sensitive, my body was having unfavorable reactions to the medications. So, I researched how to make the changes I needed to live healthier. That research brought me full circle, back to dōTERRA, to their supplements this time, as well as cleaning products and Essential Oils.
What I learned is how our way of living lends to unfavorable health. We live in a time where we are surrounded by toxins…it’s in the air we breathe, water we drink, food we eat, cleaning products and medications we use. DōTERRA offered me an opportunity to make healthier choices for myself and my family. Once I fully committed to a consistent wellness plan, I stared having some amazing health results. Through their LifeLong Vitality pack and other supplements, I’ve been able to cleanse and support my body; finding relief and support for my ailments. Through their cleaning products, I’m removing the toxins from our home, and through their Essential Oils, I’m not only able to continue to find natural health solutions for myself and my family, but I’m finding they support my emotional wellbeing as well. I found the oils are the perfect companions to healing modalities like life coaching, acupuncture, yoga and other energetic modalities.
So why do I partner with doTerra…
and want to share these oils with everyone? Because after choosing to live a vibrant juicy life, I have seen how they support my body and I want to teach others to do the same. My Why is making the best choices for myself and my family so we can continue to enjoy our wild gypsy lifestyle on the road. My Why is to be able to experience wellness and wholeness by returning to nature and the many ways it sustains us. My Why is creating a business and life where I can authentically show up and be of service to others, (but why an MLM? Read more). Especially those who walk along the same path of being an HSP, with physical and emotional struggles like myself and remind them…they are not alone. My Why is sharing my story and my knowledge and to teach others that now is the time to choose a healthy lifestyle, not when you are faced with health challenges.
I came across this quote on the internet a few weeks ago…it spoke volumes to me. So, I had to create an image of it to share…it’s something to really think about…
I still have a ways to go on my own healing journey; but I invite you to journey along with me…let me guide you as I share and teach you how you too can awaken your inner healer. So you can start living a healthy, vibrant, juicy life today.
