My own journey to wellness
Updated: Jul 24, 2020
After what felt like a lifetime of enduring endless medical appointments, I finally had confirmation that I was suffering from a particularly harsh Virus which wiped me out completely for 5 months forcing me to take a career break. On top of this, I had the added complication of being ‘clinically morbidly obese’ after years of running my tank dry and not taking accountability for my own health and my life whilst I tried to be all things to all people except myself.
I was at rock bottom and felt like I had nothing left to give after spending 17 years in fight-or-flight mode. It took a near death experience in 2012 as well as a 5 month stint completely wiped out and struggling with chronic fatigue in 2017 to finally realise that the only person who could help me, who knew me better than anyone else, was staring back at me in the mirror.
I was introduced to the wonderful world of doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils in the Autumn of 2017 and therein began the start of my new life as I set out on my holistic journey to recovery some 5 years after my first wake up call (which I had ignored!)
I have since gone on to qualify as a doTERRA Essential Oil Specialist and am currently undertaking my Aromatherapy Diploma as I am so passionate about empowering others to be able to turn their lives around too. It gives me immense pride to be in a position to introduce and share the power of doTERRA’s natural health and wellness solutions with people looking to take control of their health in an effective, natural, affordable and almost immediate way.
We have been using doTERRA essential oils & supplements every single day since October 2017 when I was introduced to Peppermint oil as I had heard how beneficial peppermint is for alleviating head and neck tension, muscle soreness, joint discomfort, and even uplifting of vitality and emotions.
And so my road to intergrated wellness began!
From the very first night we diffused the oils, it completely impacted the atmosphere & energy in our home. In a relatively short period of time, I regained my vitality day by day and I have never looked back.
The best part is, this has had the same effect on my husband and our two sons. And our two dogs were even more chilled out and content than ever before too.
We now have a diffuser in almost every room in our home.
Diffusing oils is a phenomenal way to elevate the mood and energy in our home.
Everyone is so much calmer & more focused (even our dogs’ lives have been positively impacted, that’s for another blog post!!)
When our teenage sons use the oils before exercise, not only do they notice a significant difference in their performance, they also see the difference in their post-exercise recovery time.
When we take the supplements, our energy & vitality is greatly improved and we function better generally from day-to-day.
My entire family is so deeply grateful to have been introduced to DoTERRA (thanks Melinda!) and simply cannot imagine going one single day without using our oils.
Even when we go away, whether it’s a road trip or away on holiday to the other side of the world, the diffuser, oils and supplements are always the first things to be packed without fail!
I know with unwavering certainty that doTERRA was my lifeline and gave me the strength and confidence to turn my career around to go on and train to become a Hypnotherapist specialising in Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT™).
I incorporate my knowledge and passion of Essential Oils along with the power of the human mind to completely transform your life.
