Up until my late 20’s, I ate anything I wanted. No one realized that gluten sensitivity was an inherited problem in my family then. Like most people, I consumed gluten daily. Symptoms started in childhood: bloating, asthma, fatigue. In high school it switched to eczema that continued for years. At 21, I was hospitalized for severe inflammation in my small intestine and malabsorption. Misdiagnosed with IBD, I continued eating gluten, getting sicker. One of the main treatments doctors choose was antibiotics. I took strong doses for many years, along with steroids in an effort to control the damaging effects of inflammation. When I repeatedly told docs I felt something I was eating was causing the symptoms, I was told diet had nothing to do with my illness. You’re probably aware now, with probiotics being mainstream, that antibiotics destroy your good bacteria, mess up your microbiome and could lead to a fungal infection. The most common being thrush. When I was taking all those antibiotics many years ago, the concerned pharmacist advised me to take probiotics. My doc said there’s no proof they work and maybe they’d make things worse. Well, I developed a baker’s yeast infection. It started in my gut. Inflammation from gluten led to leaky gut, and the fungus broke through my intestine, settling in other parts of my body. My immune system’s response to these rogue fungi was make antibodies to destroy them. Unfortunately, my immunity wasn’t strong enough to beat the infection entirely, and I started having a severe allergic response to fungi in food, too. No more yeasted breads. No more mushrooms or balsamic vinegar. No more blue cheese, unless I was okay with throat swelling up and needing a trip to the ER. I’m sharing my story as a cautionary tale to bring awareness to food intolerances and the lasting effects of antibiotic overuse. I’ve had to be on my diet for over a decade now to avoid allergic reactions and crippling inflammation. It’s worked for me. I’m rebuilding my microbiome with probiotics, prebiotics, and prescription antifungals (nothing natural worked in 10+ yrs, fungus tough to get under control). I hope my IG helps others. Thx for following. ❤️
“The absence of symptoms does not mean the presence of health.” How true is this?!? ▪️ How many of us know someone who is in peak shape, too young to be suffering from X or to be diagnosed with X?! Feeling “ok” or even “good” does NOT mean your body is functioning well... Did you know it can take up to 7 years to experience consistent pain from an accident? Or, that at least 2/3 of your nerves DO NOT “feel” pain? This is why feeling “good” doesn’t mean anything. This is why it is so important to take care of your spine and spinal cord— because it IS what transmits life energy flow and health from your brain the all parts of your body. ▪️ What if we changed the paradigm of “health” and “healthcare” in this country?! What if we took care of our spine, our Central Nervous System half as well as we take care of our cars?! What would that do for us as a nation, as a state, as a city, as a community, for our families and for our own lives?!? The greatest WEALTH in this life is your HEALTH!

Good morning Tuesday......It can be extremely difficult to release certain people out of your life, however, it is necessary for your growth. You have outgrown them. They are not walking on the same path as you or they are not going in your direction.
Not everyone from your old life will make it over into your new life and that's okay. Do not feel guilty. It is your life and you are responsible for your emotional, mental, physical and Spiritual health.
Do not make any apologies for focusing on your growth. Those who refuse to respect your life needs to be cut out of your life permanently. Your life is not a joke thing for anyone to play around in.
Yes, you are very serious when it comes to the health of your life. You have no time playing dollyhouse with anyone. There can ONLY be ONE CEO of your life and that's YOU!! 👊🔥🔥🌟🌟🙏🙏

🕊 A woman will use as many as 17,000 tampons in her lifetime.
Many are made out of a cotton and rayon blend, which must be bleached to get that clean white sterile look. While the EPA banned a more harmful bleaching process back in 1998, current elemental "chlorine-free" bleaching processes using chlorine dioxide still produce, dioxins. ☠️☠️☠️ Risks connected with dioxin exposure include Cancer and Immune issues. Dioxin exposure for women can increase the risk for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can cause major reproductive issues. Other risks include Endometriosis, where the uterus tissue forms outside of the uterus in a painful condition that may also cause infertility. 🚫Is this a risk you want to expose your body every time you wear an inorganic pad ladies???

Taking care of your liver is paramount.
It's an essential organ carrying out many functions in the body including the production of proteins and cholesterol, and blood clotting.
And when we intake alcohol or drugs, the liver metabolizes the drug and detoxifies chemicals.

Hey! Happy New Year from my family to you! Did you make any New Years resolutions? I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time sticking to New Years resolutions. It’s great to set goals and make plans, but you also need a big important “WHY” or they won’t stick. Last year our family made some big health changes that we’ve actually stuck with because we had some major motivation.
2016 was a rough year for us. My husband was diagnosed with two tumors. One on his pituitary gland and one on his thyroid. Our sixteen year old daughter was also diagnosed with a pancreatic tumor that year and had to have a major surgery. If you want to read her story I wrote about it earlier this year so scroll back a bit. Thankfully all of these tumors turned out to be benign, but these experiences were a serious wake up call!! So in 2017 when we were introduced to Young Living Essential Oils and the concept of toxin free living we all embraced it. Preserving our health is a pretty strong WHY for all of us now, so we’ve made some major changes and stuck to them.
What’s your WHY? Your health and the health of the people you love is SO precious!! Don’t wait until you get bad news from the doctor. Make some simple changes now. Start by making 2018 the year you reduce the toxins in your life. Message me and I’ll help you get started.
I know I was! And then I was introduced to essential oils... Ever since, I have been continually blown away at how much these products have AMPLIFIED my life. My life has truly changed because of dōTERRA®’s essential oils and I am confident yours will too once you get started.
On Saturday, January 6th at 6:00 pm PST, I am hosting a must-attend Facebook Class if you want to THRIVE this winter.
I am going to teach you how to replace many of your most common winter products with safe and effective dōTERRA® Essential Oil blends.
I will also be answering your questions and many of the most common inquiries including... Which oils are best?
How do they work?
How do I get started?
What should I look for in a brand?
Please share this opportunity with anyone who looking to make this winter the BEST one yet!

Y'all know I'm obsessed with my oils and natural cleaning products. Take a gander at this-- one of my fellow oilers made this post and it is INSANE!!! Here’s what Kim said: 😮 my daughter is doing science fair this year, and she is comparing popular household cleaners to thieves oil, and you guys this is after 20 days, and it's disgusting! She swabbed all over the bathroom and rubbed it on the Petri dishes, then "cleaned" them with the different cleaners. Thieves oil shows no bacteria, and Lysol has two dishes with bacteria, and Clorox shows all of them growing bacteria! Gross! Oils for the win!
It’s been a while since I posted anything. The holidays are the busiest time of year for jewelry designers like me 😊 @themalababe. Here’s the @w3llpeople haul that just came in from @pharmaca. They’re having a 25% off sale now! W3ll People is by far my favorite natural cosmetic line. The ingredients are clean and they work really well and match my skin tone. Blog post and product review coming soon! #cleanbeauty#beautybloggers
If you’re concerned about protecting yourself and your family from everyday exposure to chemicals, visit Skin Deep Cosmetics Database (www.ewg.org). The EWG (Environmental Working Group) created online profiles for cosmetics and personal care products and their potential hazards and health concerns. They fill in where the government leave off! Companies are allowed to to use almost any ingredient they wish & the U.S. government doesn’t review the safety of products before they’re sold to us! Educate yourself about what you’re putting on your body b/c it’s being absorbed directly into your bloodstream.
A little more on Parabens...if your products contain them, it’s time to make a switch. The FDA says they are safe when used as the products direct...but consider this...you aren’t just using one product...a little here, a little there adds up to a lot...and can contribute to some major health issues. #protectyourskin#protectyourhealth#saferbeauty#beautycounter#betterbeauty
One of the best things we can do for ourselves this time of year is avoid the cold and seek warmth. This is preventative moxa on a point for overall warmth and supplementation of the body. Warming, strengthening, divine!
Vacation season? Bring a bottle of these with you. I took two capsules with my big meals of the day in Mexico and never had a single digestive problem, amazing since the amount and variety of foods consumed here is very different than my diet back home.—————————-——— * 11 High Potency Enzymes
* Enhanced Nutrient Digestion
* Optimal Protein Absorption
Even a small decrease in nutrient digestion can lead to gas, bloating and indigestion. Indigested fats can become rancid (toxic), indigested carbs feed colonic bacterial strains and indigested proteins can pass through the intestinal mucosa leading to allergic immune responses.
Optimal digestion increases the nutrients that our bodies need. It decreases the digestive load placed on our bodies when we consume enzyme-depleted foods. #teamallmax#besmart#enjoylife
