Over the course of these 10 years I have learned so much about my body, my health and how to help others live a toxic free/chemical free lifestyle. I married my husband, partner and best friend in 2006 and conceived in 2008, and since then have grown our family to 4 healthy boys despite being told that would never happen.
Given my extensive medical history each of my children are nothing short of a miracle. My journey to health is why I am so passionate about sharing what I've learned with you, and how essential oils have been a part of that journey. I praise God for the blessing of our family for without his breath none of this knowledge would matter. I hope my story can help you make small changed for big results.
I started my journey to wellness 10 years ago. I, like most people ate what I liked, tried not to eat too much "junk" and made sure I had some vegetable or a salad everyday. I used cosmetics and personal care items from department stores and where ever my favorite scent was at the time.
I had no idea that I was poisoning my body with over 300+ chemicals a day (as most women are) with my cosmetics and personal care items full of hormone and endocrine disruptors. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep#.Wmi1BKinHtQ
I had no idea that the items I was using were not regulated by the FDA (and worse, many of the product available in the USA are banned in other countries) I had no idea that the vegetable and meat I was eating were loaded with pesticides and hormones of their own. I had no idea that when I cleaned my house ALL. THE. CHEMICALS. stayed in my house. FOREVER.
I was newly married and we wanted a BABY NOW! My biological clock was ticking like Big Ben and we wasted no time trying to conceive. I had many gyn issues that I knew about that might create a challenge and some medical issues I had NO idea that I had. I'll post more on my blog about that. . .
Blessing and Wellness, Erica
