I talk about a new book I'm reading about Buddhism and the benefits from studying how the mind works.

And I also talk about Morning Routines and the importance of setting up your day for success!

Choosing Better Ingredients is a way of life, it really is. Choose better quality isn't just about ingredients, it's what you choose on a regular basis.

Let's take ingredients first. The better ingredients you put in your body, the better your body will feel, the better your body feels the more confidence you'll have. And the more confidence you have the better you'll be able to perform your day to day tasks.

Consider feeling energized, having mental clarity; how about being in more control of your mood and emotions.

It all starts with choosing better, for your body, for your life.

If you choose better quality ingredients, you tend to make better choices in your life.

Choose better to whom you hang out with, choose better to what you do with your personal time, choose a better environment.

It's a way of life, choose better because you deserve it.

Fermented foods is without question, one of the best ways to improve digestion.

Some of my favourite fermented foods include: Kombucha, Sauerkraut, Kimchi and Miso.

I choose to make homemade kombucha but there is some great local businesses that produce their own, which in my opinion would be better than a mass produced product.

If you are purchasing Sauerkraut make sure it's raw and needs to be stored in the fridge.

Kimchi is my favourite of all of these and again I choose to make my own. Pay attention to the store bought kimchi products, many are packed with toxins that won't do your digestive system any good.

And last on my list is Soy products. In most cases I choose to avoid soy. Unless they are fermented. You can find health benefits from both Miso and Tempeh.

All the best in your search for improving your digestion!

It's so important to have an attitude of gratitude. Might sound cliche to some, but show your appreciation on a regular basis for the smallest things will change your entire mindset and outlook on the day.
 
Try waking up in the morning and thinking of just a few things that you're grateful for. It doesn't matter how small; doing this for a few days and then a few weeks you'll quickly find out how powerful our mind is.
 
Before long your mind will start to be attracted to positive things in your life. When you're focused on the positive instead of the negative, more things start to open it's arms to you.
 
You'll find yourself in better relationships, a healthier environment; you'll create more abundance in your life.
 
All by starting with an attitude of gratitude. Stop complaining, avoid those people that are always in that mind frame, create your own positivity and let the rest take over.

It's so important to understand what we put on our body ultimately goes in our bodies.

Our skin is our biggest organ and we need to treat it right. The problem is, no one wants to hear this information.

Who wants to spend extra money on products, and have to read all the ingredients each time you buy.

Not many, I mean I certainly don't. But it's necessary to know exactly what goes in your body, what it does to your body and it's affecting our health.

In this show I talk about a few things we should stay away from when it comes to cosmetics or the toxins in your bathroom.

I hope you enjoy the show and I hope it's eye opening to some.

You can find more details in my book called Detoxify Yourself which is what I'm referencing throughout this show.

Oscar Smith has a lifelong dedication to fitness as a lifestyle. Oscar has personally mastered multiple disciplines to develop a specialized training system for total body transformation. His fitness services are offered at his chic Tribeca personal training gym, O-D Studio. His level of experience and expertise has made him one of the most sought-out trainers in NYC.

With athletic experiences on his high school football and track and field teams, Smith went on to major in physical education and minor in business, and receive his master’s degree in kinesiology and biomechanics.


During college, he also become a level two all-around gymnast. With over 25 years of experience, Oscar’s notable accomplishments range in scope.

Oscar is a Certified Personal Trainer [ISSA-International Sports and
Science Association], Certified Flexibility Technician, Gymnastics Coach [USGF- United States Federation of Gymnastics], Kinesiology and Biomechanics Specialist (movement of the muscles and tendons), Senior Ocean Lifeguard and Ocean Rescuer (diver), USLA Competitor [United States Lifesaving Association], six-time tri-athlete (30-mile bike ride, six-mile run, one-mile swim), and a New York City Marathon participant. He was also a grade 3 ocean beach lifeguard and member of the lifeguard
completion team, travelling to compete in worldwide events.

Smith started his personal training gym, O-D Studio in 2003, before anyone knew what a personal training gym was. He had a simple vision: to create somewhere where people could work out with a one-on-one trainer, where people didn’t pay for the use of a building, but for the use of a trainer. What he didn’t realize in creating his vision is that his gym would come to attract celebrities, because they could work out without the prying
eyes of the public. O-D Studio has since attracted celebrities that include:
Katharine McPhee, Tom Brady, Rosario Dawson, Val Kilmer, and many others.

Smith is the author of the book Natural Strength, which focuses on how readers can overcome their weight loss plateaus, and also encourages readers to reconnect with their inner child and try different things to have fun working out again. He also has a YouTube show, S.W.E.A.T., which explores the latest trends in working out, from aerial silks to trampoline workouts to underwater spin.

Jack Stafford is a British singer-songwriter renowned for his thought-provoking lyrics. He is on a mission to use his songs to serve others and help people overcome the manipulative, materialistic message that is distorting modern society. Jack’s new album Deeper is a series of self-help songs that will help people get perspective on the current Corona crisis. The songs are inspired by his own life experiences and mental struggles. Jack previously lived a toyboy lifestyle in Amsterdam, working as a copywriter, musician, and fashion designer. However, this led to burnout and breakdown, so Jack set off on a bicycle tour through 45 countries as a nomadic troubadour, playing over 700 house concerts in return for a place to sleep.

Jack grew through all these experiences, countless self-help books and podcasts, and Vipassana meditation. As a documentary songwriter and modern-day troubadour, he writes non-fictional songs with a goal of instructing, educating, or maintaining a historical record.

Jack lives in seclusion in southern Italy. When not making music, he is an Ayurvedic Practitioner, meditation teacher, Acroyoga dilettante, permaculture gardener, touring cyclist, founder of Copywriter Collective, student of metaphysics and Italian representative of The Aetherius Society.

My name is Caroline Collins, some may call me CC, and I originally am from the countryside of western Massachusetts.

After being physically attacked and fearing my life 10 years ago, I realized I knew nothing about how to use my body to protect myself. I sought after a martial art and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu found me. After completing my Master’s in Science Education, I moved out to California from Massachusetts to train with the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor and world champion athlete, Cobrinha, and simultaneously start my career in my other passion: nutrition science education. My aim was to teach people how to live healthier and happier in their bodies through conscious existence and natural nutrition.

After five years of teaching, serving as a teaching fellow for the National Science Foundation, I left my job as the science department chair in LAUSD, to train and compete Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu full-time and to start a health food business that provides natural nutrition to athletes. That small business brought me to larger current business and the full-time athletic pursuit brought me to now, teaching fitness through applied, scientific, and strategic knowledge. I also design and create nutrition programs for clients, with various needs and lifestyles.

My goal is for my clients to feel beautiful and look beautiful with confidence, strength, and technique.

Along with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I have been training Capoeira for 6 years, an Afro-Brazilian Martial Arts. I also have trained Yoga for 17 years, Snowboarding for over 20 years, and just overall athlete.

May times we don't consider what our personal environment is like. We don't consider cleaning it up, or we don't think about why our life feels like it's a disaster.

How have you planned for it, how will you handle it? What steps have you taken to make sure you don't fall back to the same place that you were before you found success?

Matt’s passion for enlightening others came out of his own experience with health issues as a child. Since suffering from health issues as a child, he has since tested many allopathic drugs, “alternative” treatments, and diets, ultimately coming to find that the science of mitochondrial medicine is the first to have clearly proven that the cause of all “chronic” disease is mitochondrial dysfunction, the first cause of which is artificial light frequencies altering biologic cycles.

He is currently focused on research in the field of photobiology, the scientific study of the beneficial and harmful interactions of light on living organisms.

I'm an award-winning author, speaker, teacher, technologist, and feminist. My long-time practice of meditation and mindfulness informs my view of the mixed-up roles of men and women. 

There are many paths to transformation and change. One of the most critical changes is for people who identify as females to understand and live their vast, core power. People who identify as men must reawaken and revive their innate ability to imbue profound, resonant love into their lives and world. I teach meditation and mindfulness to help people log into these core qualities.

I’ve authored three books: 

- The Power of the Loving Man (to be released on March 17, 2020)

- Women, Meditation, and Power

- American Buddhist Rebel: The Story of Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz (winner of four literary awards; U.S. Best Books--2, The Eric Hoffer Award, and the Benjamin Franklin Award)

Additional book and audiobook projects are underway. Through my company, Skye Pearl, I focus on creating truthful and powerful global communications through various forms of media.

I especially want to reach out to: 

- Women and men who desire to learn more about meditation, 

- Parents who want to raise sons who respect women and girls who respect themselves, and

- Young, college-age women who are ready to come in to and claim their power.

I am a Director of The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism. I lead the grant category titled “Women in Buddhism.” Over the past decade, we’ve awarded grants to over 150 Buddhist organizations, most of whom are involved in social movements including teaching meditation and mindfulness at schools, prisons, military veteran facilities, homeless shelters, hospitals, city streets, and youth organizations.

I began my career as a freelance journalist and soon segued into Hollywood public relations, landing A-list clients in a number of entertainment sectors. Intrigued by the field of computer science, I left public relations in the 90s to take in-depth training in computer science. I was soon managing multi-million dollar IT projects for top Wall Street firms. Throughout my working life, I have taught and practiced meditation and mindfulness and observed first-hand the urgent need for upending gender norms to achieve world balance.

DiVecchio has made media headlines such as Good Morning America, The New York Post, Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness for helping his client win the largest weight loss prop bet to date of $1.2 million dollars. This professional poker player shed seventy pounds after his high stakes poker buddies bet him $1.2 million to get from 33% body to below 10% body fat in six months. Chris has also been featured on KTLA Morning News to talk about his book The 5x2 Method Revealing the Power of Your Senses. 
 
Chris DiVecchio brings an innovative approach to health and fitness with a unique blend of self-development transformation training. With over 20 years of experience, DiVecchio has trained everyone from athletes to models to people just trying to find time to fit in a workout. The majority of his clientele consists of high-level executives who have spent their lives building their wealth and success at the expense of their health and wellness and are now truly dedicated to balancing both.
 
As a fitness trainer and lifestyle specialist, Chris understands the importance of maintaining that balance which is why his programs are custom-designed to integrate into each individual’s lifestyle.  For many, it can often feel like an interruption.  DiVecchio believes that fitness and lifestyle do not need to live separately which is why he works intently with each client to customize a program that brings these two worlds together seamlessly and with sustainability. Between work, marriage, kids and social activities, it’s easy for people to get lost and wake up one day wondering what happened? When did I stop caring about my health? 

DiVecchio’s philosophy of 1 v.s. 23 suggests that the 1 hour a day you workout is important but it’s the choices you make with the other 23 hours of your day that have a much greater impact on the quality of your overall health and happiness. He uses a three-fold approach that focuses on nutrition, training and vitamin supplementation to target what he calls preventative health & wellness.  The key component of his program is accountability coaching. He takes the time to properly educate each client while honing their skills with time management and stress management to show just how easy it is to eliminate the excuses and get results.

After a year and a half at Harbor College I was able to earn a scholarship to play Football at San Jose State University to play for the Spartans. 
 
My Training Career started after I was finished in San Jose and moved home. I came home and was dead broke, found a local gym and asked if I could start training there. At the time I was living out of a 1983 Chevy Blazer and didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I spent many nights sleeping in my car and eating off the Taco Bell Dollar Menu with the Tip money I earned from giving away Free Personal Training sessions to get my name out into the Community.
 
I slowly caught some momentum and started to realize more and more that my purpose in life was to empower other people and connect them to their passion and purpose through fitness. I grew my Personal Training business into a group training business over the course of 3 years and decided it was a good idea to open up a Training Facility. In 2015 The Blueprint LA was established and I was officially a business owner with zero plan, zero experience and zero guidance. It was the best decision I have ever made. 
 
We struggled tremendously our first 2 years and I contemplated closing our doors because we only had 7 members and I was losing a lot of money every month. Instead of throwing in the towel I decided to buy out my partner and go all in. Second best decision I have made.
 
Over the past 3 years we have transformed hundreds of peoples lives and provided this community with a sanctuary of Empowerment, Passion and Positivity. Over the past year we have expanded from 3000 to 9000sq ft and are training a community of 350 people. I am planning to start hosting workshops for Gym Owners/Trainers that are looking to get in this space that need a guide. During my years of struggle it wasn't until I reached out for help that I saw the light.

It’s not easy to talk about Change, most people don’t want to hear anything about it at all. No one said embracing change is easy. It can be a challenge at the best of times. But there are so many benefits to change, if we’d only accept what new changes has to offer.
 
First of all it’s worth noting that most resistance to change is centered around fear. We fear the unknown which is mostly why we don’t want to deal with change. As creatures of habit we like consistency in our lives. It’s much easier to deal with things we know are going to happen in day to day life.
 
Once we get passed the fear of change we then can look at the spice of life which is variety! Trying new things, having an open mind, will show us new results and growth in our life in many different areas.

There’s a couple things we should know about our muscles when it comes to muscle memory, recovery and seeing results. Muscle memory is when our muscles conform to over and over repetition. If we do enough reps of something or do something enough times our body will do it without thinking about it. 
 
When it comes to muscle confusion we want to do keep our body guessing and avoiding this particular muscle memory so we can continue to see results. 
 
To avoid plateau's which means we aren’t seeing results anymore we need to continue to change up workouts, try new things, new exercises and movements. We can also increase reps and decrease weight, or reduce reps and increase weight.
 
There’s many things we can do to create muscle confusion and changing up workouts by doing just that. Keeping changing it up so you can continue to see results!

The 4 Agreements is one of my favourite books. It offers incredibly life lessons that we could all use to live by that will without question improve our quality of life.

In this episode Drew shares his perspective on each agreement and how they've changed his life for the better in different ways.

Starting with the first agreement: Be Impeccable with your word. It's just want you say but what you think about yourself and others.

Agreement number 2: Don't take anything personally. A difficult task without question but one that can be improved on over time and practice.

The Third agreement is, don't make any assumption. We have no idea what other people are going through in their lives. It's always a good idea to avoid making assumptions.

And finally the fourth agreement: Always do your best. Without question, how you do one thing is how you do everything. So strive to do your best no matter what it is that you're doing.

There is a proven and repeatable path to success and in this show that's exactly what Drew teaches you how to do. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. You don't have to start from scratch, if there's something you want to achieve someone has done it before or someone has done something similar in another industry.

All you have to do is follow the path to success that is clearly paved for you. In this show we'll go over just a few simple steps to help you get there.

For example the very first thing you need to do is decide what it is you want. Sounds too simply, no? The fact is, you won't be able to follow any other steps if you don't have the first one down.

After you decide you come up with a plan, after the plan you find an accountability partner, mentor and or coach.

From there we need to follow the path, stick with the plan and what may be the most challenging, we need patience. We need to give our plan time to develop which almost always takes longer than expected.

Dr. Trent Mozingo grew up on a small farm in Southeastern Indiana where he learned the hard work that goes into raising food from the ground up. With a large garden, farm-raised beef, pork, and chicken eggs, his family always had home-cooked meals that were raised on the farm. 

Growing up, Dr. Mozingo never knew the value of his childhood education until he began his pursuit of becoming a chiropractor at Palmer College of Chiropractic. There he learned how the human body works, and he applied his childhood education to understand how food plays an important role in keeping the body working at its best. 

Dr. Mozingo wrote his first book, The Weight Is Over, to help people understand the inner-workings of the human body and to help them take control of their own health. With great detail and reader-friendly analogies, The Weight Is Over takes the reader on a journey to build an understanding of how their health came apart, and how they can put it back together.

What may sounds like common sense to some, isn't for others. In this show I talk about being a good person, simply because I think we can all do a better job at positively contributing to making this world a better place. 

Holding a door open for someone, not being such a rush that you're only thinking about yourself every time you get behind the wheel.

Saying please and thank you, are all ways to make this world a better place no matter how small or insignificant it sounds. 

I share a story of a homeless person that rejected my help, and then I share a couple more stores of how we fed a homeless person and gave some money to another and they were more then grateful.

We can all do something small each day to make this world a better place and contribute to being a good person.

I hope this show help shine some light on that.

No it's not easy to wake up at 4am but that's what the rise and grind is all about. Consider waking up a bit earlier, consider the benefits of what it's like to get after it while everyone else is sleeping.

It reminds me of a famous quote from Thomas Jefferson. He said, if you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done.

The truth is, most people aren't willing to put themselves in such a difficult situation to get what they want. Find a way to be more productive, get up while everyone is sleeping, not having to worry about someone texting you early or answer email after email because no on is emailing you back, they're sleeping!

Sad to see so much trash, it almost makes me emotional. Maybe more so because so few care. It’s not that there isn’t people picking it up, it’s that we consume too much.
 
We don’t consider less waste, we don’t think about passing on a container or bringing our own.
And something as simple as commenting, liking or sharing a post like to raise awareness...we turn away and pretend we aren’t part of the problem or can't positively contribute.
 
This isn’t a far off destination, this is our backyard, this is our home, this is a destination many come to visit, enjoy and leave and don’t think about what we they left behind.
 
On top of that, we don’t consider our children, grandchildren and theirs to come by being conscious of what we’re using, buying and leaving behind.
 
What will come of our paradise? Where we travel, where will we enjoy a getaway and what about the people who call this paradise home?

There is a clear connection between sleep and sugar, unfortunately most people don’t see this connection or don’t realize that sugar is preventing them from getting a restful night sleep.
 
If you look at it as sugar being a stimulant then it might help you understand why have sugar throughout the day and especially at night will keep you up or prevent you from getting into that deep REM sleep.
 
It’s important to pay attention to our daily habits, for example if you’re regularly having sugary drinks and snacks right before bed while you’re watching your favourite netflix series or a movie. 
 
Changing your habits to healthier ones will certainly make a difference.

There really is an Art to Reciprocation. Some may feel like it's common sense, but it's really not. Most people don't reciprocate for many reasons.

Maybe they don't know how, maybe they don't know they aren't. Maybe they don't know they're in a one way relationship and can't figure out why they have issues developing life long friends or why they struggle with co-workers or business relationships.

Reciprocation comes in many forms and it shows up in every day life no matter where you look. My point is, we need to reciprocate. We need to stop only thinking of ourselves and consider how someone else is doing, what they day is like and how we can help improve their day as well as ours. 

Friends, family, intimate relationships, business connections...whatever you're looking to improve when it comes to a relationship, consider reciprocation at the root cause.

We are either reciprocating or we aren't.

The Benefits of Being Consistent are endless really. We could think about just about anything and connect being consistent with results. If  you want to do well with exercise and nutrition, consistency is a must.
 
If you want to do well in business you can’t exactly work once in awhile, or generate sales every couple weeks to be successful.
 
When you look at meal planning or nutrition 98% of people that fall off their nutrition track, do so because they weren’t consistent with meal planning their week in advance.
 
If you’re not dropping those inches or feeling better about yourself through exercise, there’s a very good chance it has everything to do with how consistent you are at getting your workouts in.

I'm 46 years old, single father of 4 kids, from Kamloops BC. I moved to Calgary in 1999 for a job promotion and have been here in southern Alberta ever since. 
 
I have been always active as a person being involved with sports like hockey, cycling, soccer, etc.. and enjoy the outdoors when I have time off from my job. 
 
When I went through my divorce 3 years ago now, I looked at myself in the mirror and didn't like what I saw. With raising kids and being what I thought was a good marriage, I honestly let myself go a bit. So what better time than to get myself back into fitness. 
 
It's been 19 months now straight going to the gym and not a drop of alcohol which was an accomplishment of it's own since I used to drink a case of beer every weekend I was home.

Join Drew Taddia on this episode of Exploring Mind and Body as he talks about the health Benefits of Magnesium. Did you know that 80% of the population is deficient in Magnesium? This contributes to a long list of health concerns from constipation to restless legs. 
 
Many people also have issues with getting a restful night sleep. Well, magnesium can help with that too! And how about recovery after a long run or a difficult workout?
 
Tune into this episode as Drew explains how to choose a good quality supplement and what to avoid, because in many cases the lower quality magnesium supplements do more damage than good.

The truth is Fads, Fasts and Cleanses and don’t work. If they did everyone would join a fad and it would work and we’d all be happy and healthy and be at our ideal weight. The problem is, we love the idea of a quick fix.
 
Try something like a weekend fast to drop a few inches can do more damage than good. If it works that first time we’re in even more trouble because then all we’ll do is a weekend fast instead of pay attention to what we’re putting in our body all the time. 
 
There are benefits to some fasts if you’re doing it for the right reasons. It’s important to figure out what you want out of a fast, what you’re doing it and question what the best way to achieve your goal is. 
 
Tune it to find out real results that are sustainable and lasting, which is much different than a quick fad, fast or cleanse.

I started this whole, wild ride because I was just searching for ways to improve and protect my family’s health (something I’m sure everyone can relate to). Before I knew it I was elbow deep, sifting through media fear mongering, false advertising, fad diets, and a nauseating amount of just plain stupid advice.

What I needed more than anything was someone to shoot it to me straight, someone to actually help!

And so instead of looking for her, I become her.

I couldn’t have known then how much of a health nerd I would turn into, how amazing I would find the design of the human body for optimal health, or how obsessed I would become in helping others build lifestyles (and legacies) that make them truly happy and healthy.

So that’s me!

You can expect me to be consistent in sharing useful and simple information. You can count on my excitement and dedication in motivating you in exactly the ways you need. You can trust that I am results oriented, and strategic towards giving you a life of freedom (and fun!). When I’m not totally geeking out on gut health topics, you can find me camping in the Rocky Mountains with my husband of 21 years and our two fantastic kids.

My favourite part of my job is that it feels like I treat friends all day long. I love to hear about your families, workout routines, new challenges you are facing at work, trips you are planning, and activities you are participating in. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, and hearing the giggles of children after getting adjusted, working with a pregnant mom and then meeting her new baby, and listening to the stories of my “snow birds” who have returned from a winter of golfing down South.
 
Knowing how important chiropractic care is to my health, I continue to be adjusted every week, so I can continue to play competitive water polo, keep up with my very active dog (Wattson, an Airedale), golf, learn how to play hockey, take time out to relax and enjoy my husband’s company, and function at my best.
 
When I’m not at the office or the pool, I volunteer with Rotary International, working directly with international youth exchange students, helping them learn our Canadian culture, and appreciate all that Canada has to offer. For those patients who speak French, I am also bilingual, and would really appreciate being able to practice my French, so please challenge me to do so!

Cori’s love of adventure, learning and laughter is the theme for her life. A seeker of truth, her passion to live a vibrant, healthy life was ignited during her first pregnancy. She studied voraciously and took action to bring a healthy child into the world. Years of farming, gardening and raising three healthy children close to nature, brought out a deep love for the earth.

Always seeking a better way, Cori found the most powerful tools available for personal growth and transformation. Her studies of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Reiki, Energy healing and other Mind/Body techniques expanded into private work with clients and workshops with groups.

She was captivated by the ancient wisdom of indigenous people around the world and especially studying those in Hawaii, North and South America. This ongoing 25-year journey has
been a deep dive into shamanic practices. Thirteen years ago, she built a Spirit Drum who has become her traveling companion for the songs and chants when hosting sacred healing fires
and drumming circles.

Her first book, “Vision Quest, A Spiritual Awakening,” was inspired by this indigenous practice of going into solitude, hers being 48 hours alone on a mountain. This journey in silence and trust with water but
no tent or food opened a connection and love for all life.

Cori’s latest book, “Choosing a Vibrant Life,” is filled with simple and inspiring ideas to create the life and health we really want by reclaiming our power of choice. Her work helps us claim our immense power to create a peaceful world where all can thrive.

Beautiful British Columbia, Canada is her home in summer and she finds adventure wherever the warm wind blows her at other times of the year, where she offers ceremonies and workshops internationally.

My name is Cori Black, I am currently a work from home ranch wife and mother of 3. I love working as a family and spending time together outdoors. I have a passion for teaching and caring for others. I especially love helping people consider and eliminate the common toxins in their environment that could be affecting both their own body and their family's! 
 
As a former Elementary School Teacher I have always had an interest and curiosity in child development. How they grow and how they learn in the process is fascinating to me. Within a few short years of my teaching career, I started to feel like development was changing.
 
There seemed to be higher needs in a multitude of areas, entering the classroom each year with little explanation as to why. When it came time for me to have my first child I was highly invested in doing everything within my own control to keep that child safe and healthy. I began to slowly explore the ideas of eliminating toxins from my daily life and our home environment. 
 
It started quite slowly one product at a time. As I used one up I'd try to replace it with a better option. I quickly learned all about "greenwashing" and the lack of regulation on words like natural and pure. I was disgusted at the marketing techniques used to push products that truly weren't any safer.
 
I was feeling out of options, very confused and frustrated reading labels. I sped up the process with a big garbage bag as I reached the point of feeling betrayed and decided to do something more drastic! A few months into this process my cousin and her sister introduced me to some products they were using as alternatives for their own families. I was of course skeptical but willing to take a look. 
 
That's when the world of Essential Oils came into my life. I previously had no clue what they were or how to use them but was quite intrigued by what I was learning about them. Being a farm girl at heart it just made sense that plants, trees and all things grown in the earth could be trustworthy.(as long as I could find ones that I could trust were as good as they claimed to be.)
 
My exploration of basic Essential Oils was a complete eye opener for how I could begin to replace items in my home with something safer and much more effective. I discovered Young Living as a company of complete integrity and commitment to only produce the absolute best quality Essential Oils and oil infused products. I felt like I had hit the jackpot.
 
That was 5 years ago, and today I can't believe how exploring the option of Essential Oils has changed my family's life and our overall wellness. I have stepped back from my teaching position to be home with the most important people in my life, so that I can best care for them and myself during this season of life. I am proud to be teaching in a new avenue, sharing the message of choosing better for our families.
 
The risk of continuing on the path of endless toxins just isn't worth it. We get one body, and it's the only place we have to live. We best take good care of it! We are the gatekeepers of our homes and it's our job to be advocates for our own health in this ever changing world!
