I began my health journey almost 3 years ago… actually 2 years and 8 months to be exact. After my newborn son has several minor issues arise, I began looking into healthier solutions. As I learned, I became very aware of the ingredients in the products that were in my home were, in fact, quite harmful. So, I set out to start learning.
I started using essential oils which met a handful of needs my family had. After several great experiences, I began learning about chemicals and how several things my family dealt with could actually be linked to several regular every-day-use products. It finally hit me that as a society, we are very uninformed. I wanted to be informed. I wanted to know. As the saying goes, “knowledge is power”. This statement has been a moving statement in my life. It IS power. I have never felt more in control of myself, my body, and my family’s health. And let me tell you, it is an amazing feeling.
People are starting to realize that what we put in our bodies and on our skin has direct implications to our overall health and wellness – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
As a licensed mental health therapist, my life goals were to help those dealing with emotional obstacles. As I learned more about holistic health and practiced CBT therapy, I truly realized how all of the many pieces and parts make up the person. By disregarding one area (whether it be physical or emotional health) we can in turn affect the other areas. Now, I have merged my passion of helping others with emotional goals with my passion of helping others learn about healthy living.
Join me and take a peek at the lessons that I have learned the past 3 years through my health journey. This blog is simply a way for me to share with others things that I have learned along the way and things that I am learning now. Come learn and grow with me!
Wishing you health and wellness
