Hi! My name is Amy, and I am so happy you are here! I’m a wife to my wonderful husband, a mom to our fur babies, Koda and Conan, a fitness and wellness enthusist, and a oiler. I have a true passion in helping others achieve a healthier lifestyle. I believe having a balanced and healthy lifestyle will eliminate a lot of unnecessary toxins in our life.
Where to start……
Gosh there is so much I want to tell you about me. As long as I can remember I have always been active. Health and wellness was always apart of my life. From playing team supports, running, swimming, dancing, and more. I was always moving and challenging myself to become stronger.
Then he came along
I am happy to say I met my soulmate and my partner in this thing we call life almost ten years ago. The first year of our marriage I was always sick. I would blame it on my sinuses, my swimmers who I gave private swim lessons to, you name it I had a reason why I was always sick. I knew if we wanted to have a family I would have to figure a way to stay healthy and get off all these medications that was supposed to make me feel better.
This is when I started reading and learning about all the things I have been exposing myself to. Seriously, start reading your labels. The more you know the healthier you will be. I learned more about the ability of our bodies to heal with the right food and nutrition. I began learning and choosing quality food and the importance of knowing what I was using on and in my body. Through this change I read tons of books, followed health blogs, and reached out to alternative medicine doctors to help me on this journey. This is also when I learned that medications I was prescribed has the possibility to lead to infertility. What?!
Along Came Essential Oils
I knew I had to start swapping out the chemicals in our home for a safer alternative. This is when I found Young Living Essential Oils. I was sold after reading their seed to seal promise. You can read more about it here. After I received my Premium Starter Kit and started using the oils I noticed a difference in my health. Replacing chemicals for a greener option was working.
Through these changes I became pregnant however, it ended in a miscarriage. My heart was broken, I experienced emotional pain that I never felt before, yet I still wanted to continue on this journey. This pain drove me further into focusing on removing as many toxins in my life as possible. My oils started becoming a huge everyday part of my life.
Infertility is apart of me. You can follow My Journey under the lifestyle tab on my blog. It doesn’t define me however, it has taught me so much. It has ultimately made me the person I am today. I’m a passionate person who wants to help as many people remove toxic chemicals from their home. I never want to wish the pain I have experienced on someone else that’s why I share what I know with others. There are so many “what if’s” but what I do know is in the past I was ingesting, applying, and inhaling way to many chemicals.
Please don’t get me wrong, I’m far from perfect. I make my share of mistakes, however, I never give up. I continue to learn and change on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. I always say knowledge is power. It gives you the power and choice to make a change or continue with the same old thing. I’ll say it, ignorance is bliss. It’s a lot easier to look the other way, however, once you learn, and know what you can do about it, it’s hard to ignore. Whether you call it a lifestyle change or refer to it as a journey, it’s yours. I refer to mine as a lifestyle change that is taking me on an incredible journey.
