Personal Vices…….

Emotional and Physical wellness can be a struggle for anyone that relies on a personal vice. 

My vice has been food AND sugar my ENTIRE life!  Sugar is a poison and toxic to our bodies.  It has LITERALLY ruined my life. It causes inflammation which can be disastrous when you struggle with other health problems like I do.

  • Can you imagine not being able to care for your kids – because you have no energy and can’t keep up with daily activities.
  • To exhausted to get through the day. Taking 2 or 3 naps a day.
  • NOT sleeping at night
  • Not being able to remember simple things?
  • Tired all the time
  • One day you feel okay, the next you can’t get out of bed
  • Pain in joints
  • Headaches
  • Depressed

This was my life….

The worse part was that It not ONLY affected me.   These mindless food choices were affecting my children with behavior and emotional challenges too.  They ended up with problems concentrating and acting out with anger.

Not every food addiction is this dramatic,

but I guarantee that EACH of you have some type of personal vice!  

What is yours?

      CHOCOLATE     RELATIONSHIPS     CARBS     SEX     SODA     ALCOHOL     CIGARETTES

I am so passionate about my lifestyle changes that sharing it with others has flourished into a thriving business.  We have already helped so many families.  And we are NOT done.

It was 3 SIMPLE changes in my life that have helped my ENTIRE family.

I was able to empower myself as a mother and take back my life.

You can too! 

I now can attend my kids school activities with energy. 

Do the laundry, make dinner (which, no miracle will help in that department…. )

BUT, being present when my family needs me brings AMAZING fulfillment… because my kids are only getting older.  And I don’t want to miss another moment! 

This lifestyle journey has ignited a FIRE within!!  I am on a personal mission to help others get their lives back.  It is possible for ANYONE to do!!

Please let me welcome you with open arms to our Young Living team – Oil Beelievers 🙂

    ALL OVER THE DANG PLACE!!!

    First and Foremost –

    For effective therapeutic use it is absolutely crucial that only good quality, natural essential oils be used. It is worse than pointless to buy any other product, and sometimes it is down right  dangerous to use them if NOT a pure oil. No matter how pleasant the aroma might be, reconstituted or diluted products lack the constituents necessary to achieve good therapeutic results. Synthetic copies are not only ineffective, but they cannot be metabolized and utilized by the body, nor can they be excreted by the normal pathways of skin, kidneys, and colon.

     SECOND –

    Under the current laws, many products come under the heading “essential oils” and can be marketed as such even if they have been diluted with vegetable protein oils and even if they are deadly synthetic reproductions with a little pure oil added.  This is not intended to start any disagreement with anyone reading this… I ALWAYS tell my customers to do their research.  I have used lesser quality oils in the past, and realized that is WHY they produced a bad reaction for me or did not work.

    I ONLY recommend Young Living Essential Oils.  I will not refer to other oils.  To check out their commitment to quality you can watch their video: Www.seedtoseal.com and look into the farms that they own all over the world.

     

     

     

     

A LITTLE TIDBIT OF INFO>>>

BALANCE

Many essential oils are adaptogenic, meaning they will instigate a reaction in the body to bring about a state of balance. For example, hyssop normalizes either high or low blood pressure; peppermint is found on lists both as a stimulant and as a sedative.  Lemon acts on the nervous system either as a sedative or a tonic, as needed. This is true of the various plants in herbal form as well. Essential oils are simply stronger and the effects more immediately recognizable.

BLOOD/BRAIN BARRIER

Some essential oils, those containing sesquiterpenes, cross the blood/brain barrier. Oils such as cedarwood & sandalwood, high in sesquiterpenes, cross this barrier and bring increased amounts of oxygen and their healing properties to the limbic system of the brain.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Essential oils are powerful antioxidants. By their very nature they aid the body in eliminating free radicals and the damage they cause.

SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL DIMENSIONS

The spiritual and emotional dimensions of essential oils are well known and have been used by people throughout recorded history. Some oils are calming; others bring sharpness and clarity to thinking processes and stimulate memory; still others bring a sense of contentment, well-being, and faith in the future.

ACTIONS

You cannot say, “I will use this oil today because it has astringent properties for my oily skin,” and not encounter, for example, the antiviral properties of the chosen oil. When working on any physical ailment, there will also be beneficial effects seen on the emotional and energy levels of the body.

RELEASING EMOTIONAL TRAUMA

Present in the limbic system of the brain is a gland called the amygdala. This gland is directly connected to the olfactory bulb and is stimulated by the sense of smell and by our thoughts.  The aroma of essential oils reaches into this level of the body and aids us in releasing patterns that are not serving us well.

INTENTION

Studies have shown that essential oils that have been used with a positive intention have raised their frequency by 10 MHz.  Love your oils, pray over and for them, and for yourselves, use them with a firm intention set in your mind of what you need them to do.  You will notice an increase in the effectiveness of the oils.

The ANGELA that most don’t know…

We all have that time in our life where things get unmanageable.  Some never talk about it.  I have decided that I will talk about my experience, because it could help someone else.

I am not going to spill everything here on my blog for the entire world to see.  Now if you have the opportunity to meet me over a cup of tea, or we schedule a Wellness Challenge meeting.  I will share the nitty gritty with you if you are interested.

I will share this…. Life was good!  Work was good!  Kids were good!

 I played on an adult softball league, I was involved with the schools my kids attended, I loved my profession, I had a great support system my entire life.  I had 3 children and married a fabulous man!  The things that I didn’t really think much of until now ….

  • I seemed to get “Sick” so many more times than others
  • Gut issues that were embarrassing and not age appropriate
  • Lack of energy, but just figured I was out of shape
  • I had A LOT of surgeries for repetitive injuries
  • I had always gotten the “weird” ailments like Mono
  • Sore joints and discomfort

In 2006 I was Diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and the gambit of auto-immune conditions that follow.  Including ALL the medications you can think of to get things under control.

BUT – this is NOT a sob story!  I rarely draw negativity to any of my posts.

The glorious news is that ALTHOUGH I live with Lupus EVERYDAY – Which is NOT going to change…. I am able to support my body when I have flares and live in a healthier emotional state because I use a natural alternative to prescription  meds.

Of course, there are some medications that I will be on for the rest of my life.  Some medications are needed to keep my body from attacking itself.  The part that I consider a “WIN” is when I can reduce a prescription or discontinue the use of an over-the-counter product which I am taking to help me combat a miserable side effect.

My underlying story is specific to  – SAYING NO TO NARCOTICS for pain management!

As I mentioned earlier ~ my life became unmanageable which was not in the illegal sense.  I was simply over medicated.  It was nobody’s fault.  I have amazing doctors.  I just found a better option for myself and my family!  I learned how to be healthier with a lifestyle change.

I encourage EVERYONE to reach out to me if this resonates with you. Whether you are a parent of a child that is struggling, friend, relative, spouse, family member, or it is YOU!

I am NOT a doctor!  I cannot cure, treat or diagnose you.  I just simply share my journey and the simple things that helped me.  It does NOT happen overnight – it is a change that you have to be willing to embrace.  You move forward at your own pace.

Email me to schedule a “Wellness Meeting” – I am available to meet via computer (Facetime, Zoom, Skype), in person, or through email. Can’t wait to connect 🙂
