Reducing our exposures to toxins, every day, has been forefront on my mind for years. I’ve cleaned with a vinegar dilution and not other over the counter products longer than I can remember. I have made my own soaps, and when I don’t I use all natural body and laundry soaps, I buy as green as I can get. We don’t use bleach. We don’t use body and hair products that add more toxins. I even try to make sure my makeup is as pure as I can understand. But, it wasn’t until two years ago that I thought about cleaning up my food even more than I already was eating.

I thought I ate pretty healthy. We had access to fresh vegetables, but we got our carbs from bread (yum!), rice, and starchy vegetables like potatoes. I’ve been slow to accept that maybe our manna needs to come from a different source.

Two years ago I got my essential oil enrollment kit. And the next month, I was able to take part of a free supplement promotion. Since I got these high quality vitamins free, I literally had nothing to lose by trying them. They even come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Previously, I was reluctant to accept that my Vitamin B and D could use support, even after blood tests confirmed they were low. I’ve generally been anti-supplement. But, now I have these free, high quality vitamins, really, what do I have to lose? So, I started using them, and slowly worked up to the full dosage. After three weeks, I noticed some of my more frequent than occasional aches and pains were gone.

I couldn’t believe it. They really worked.

January 2015 rolled around, and I added another layer of cleaning up the intake and started the Whole 30. High quality vitamins and clean eating, and suddenly weight that had hung around my hips seemed to melt away. Not only was my body being supported to end aches and pains, shifting my regimen further helped let go of weight. At my August 2015 annual check up, I had let go of 42 pounds, and certain things I check annually were all within a health normal range – including the Vitamin B and D. The only two changes I made was adding the high quality vitamin and really cleaning up the diet, letting go of the processed foods I thought were okay.

What was so great about the supplements? They were carefully made with a bio-avaible combination of multi-vitamins and good fatty acids. These helped reduce inflammation, create a better baseline of support for my nutrition, and eased the aches and pains I had felt.

I felt better. I still feel better, now two years later. Occasional head tension rarely visits, walking is easier, movement is just easier. And, I never would have believed it if you told me this would happen.

If you’re looking for a way to kick-start making your body healthier, I’d really encourage starting on a high quality supplement. They come with a 30-day guarantee, so the only thing you have is to gain better health. Let me help you with the supplements I used.

No Move for Us

No Move for Us

Well, we didn’t move. No move for us. We will be staying in the Pacific Northwest for an unknown amount of time. It could be the rest of the school year, and we try again in the spring, or if the kid thrives at school – we could be looking at another 4 years, minimum. Either way, right now, there is no move for us.

In 2007, we looked at where we were and where we wanted to be, and we decided in 10 years, we’d move. My husband moved...

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
