Replace Your Medicine Cabinet (& Other Toxic Products)!

After my last car accident, I was put on a plethora of prescription medications by the dozen or so doctors and specialists that were treating me. Personally, I loathe prescription meds and I do not tolerate them well, however the holistic remedies that I was using at the time were not as effective as I had hoped they would be.  Ever since then, I've been on a mission to find something . . . . ANYTHING holistic that would work for me.  I've tried everything from lotions to potions and everything in between.

I've always enjoyed relatively good health, and though I didn't take it for granted, I never imagined it would be taken away from me.  I manage to stick to a pretty healthy plant-based diet, and I used to exercise daily until the accident changed that for me. So, instead of walking every day, I've had to find something that worked better for me, and that didn't make the crazy pain flare up even more.  I still do my stretching in the morning, and I found a great Yoga DVD that works great for me.  And, if I feel like tackling a workout at the gym, I do that, however I usually end up paying for it for a day or two.  That is a huge frustration for me, however it is what it is.

Then some friends and I decided to give YL Essential Oils a try this past May, and all I can say to myself is, "what the heck took so long for me to find this stuff??!"  Even though I am still working on relieving several of the residual issues that arose from that accident, I have taken back my power and taken control of my own healing!  I ditched most of the meds over the past couple of years, and I am off of ALL but two, including the blood pressure medication! Yay!!

Instead, I use AromaLife a few times a day, Ylang Ylang in between that, Marjoram in the a.m., and Lavender . . . . lots of Lavender!  Those aren't the only oils or nutritional supplements I use, however those four, along with StressAway, Peace & Calming, Joy, and a few others are how I manage to keep my blood pressure in check.  One of the best decisions I ever made!!
