It's been a while...

It's been a while...
I know it's been a long while since I've posted in my blog.  So much has happened over the last 6 months.  I had an accident on October 29th which put me in a wheel chair for two months, and reconstructive surgery on December 14th.  I finally feel like I'm on the road to recovery, thank you Jesus for being by my side through this whole ordeal.

During this time I spent a lot of time thinking.  Unable to get to my desk to craft most days has forced me to reconsider all of my life goals and decisions.  During this time a lot of information has come to light about Young Living.  I dove deep into prayer, and researched more than I ever have.  During this time I discovered within myself that I was not being who I truly am.  

I've struggled so much with my decision to stop promoting YL, mostly because I felt foolish to admit that I had followed this fear mongering company.  I've searched for a better term, and just haven't found it.  Yes, YL has good products, but they're so expensive it's ridiculous.  In attempt to sell their products they have instilled fear into so many that anything other than what they promote is bad and harmful to our bodies.

I know, I fell into this belief.  I trusted that all talc, petroleum and propylene glycol was horrible.  And if any product had it on their ingredient list I should NEVER use it.  That's just not true.  

Do you know that European products have much higher restrictions and standards than products made here in the USA? states that the EU law bans 1,328 chemicals from cosmetics that are known or suspected to cause cancer, genetic mutation, reproductive harm or birth defects.  In comparison, the US FDA has only banned or restricted 11 chemicals from cosmetics.  You might want to reread that again.

Talc can be easily contaminated with asbestos, (a banned substance in Europe but not USA) when mined. This has led to concern over many contaminated products linked to causing mesothelioma and other cancers.  Petroleum is another concern.  When properly refined petroleum is said to have no known health concerns; however, it is often not fully refined here in the US which means it can be contaminated with toxic chemicals.  I encourage everyone to do their research and find products that they love and help them live a healthier lifestyle.

At Farmasi you will find beautiful, affordable products produced within European standards, meaning you will NOT find heavy metals, parabens or SLS, due to better business practices. We believe in the power of integrity. We hold ourselves to the highest level of honesty and integrity. In our products, we use powerful, high-quality natural ingredients and we constantly innovate to provide our customers with the best solutions. We never test on animals and we never cut corners. We treat our customers like family. 

I'm so proud to use these products.  The most beautiful women are happy, confident and independent. In our company, we provide not only the products to help people look beautiful, but also the tools & opportunities to become their most beautiful self. 

Yes, you can withdrawal from...

9 years ago I was officially diagnosed with RA and given medication and braces.  7 years ago exactly; I ended up in the Emergency Room with a possible heart attack.  Short story is that my medication had eaten away at my esophagus and it was RAW....  The pain was causing severe chest pain. 

 So, after a couple of days of testing and hospital stay, I was told,

 "Good news!  My heart was in great shape!!!  
Bad news... my medication was causing severe side effects.
Good news!  There's 2 more medications I'll get to take and I'll be fine"  

NO!  That's NOT GOOD NEWS!!!  That's when I was introduced to Young Living.... Thank you, Jesus!  I have been 7 years with no medications, and after a week I was able to stop wearing these braces.

Well, a few months ago, my arthritis started getting worse, and what I was doing, was no longer helping as much.  That's when I decided to try our CBD oil.  I was taking one dropper full of 500mg Citrus daily..  

And then one day I was out...  UGH!!!  It was working so well.  I was back out of my braces, no longer in pain.  No biggie, I thought... I'll just order some more.  That was about 10 days ago....

Saturday evening I started with a headache.  A nagging, yucky, won't go away headache.
Sunday morning I woke up nauseous, and with this stupid headache that now hurt to move my eyes.
The day continued.  I tried everything I could think of.  Oils, caffeine, accupuncture mat, sugar, I even resorted to tylenol.  I was worried that maybe my hypoglycemia had taken a turn and I was having problems with my sugar.
Monday continued just about the same way.  I wasn't as much of a zombie though and I was able to accomplish some projects.

Then Monday night came...  My Ah-ha moment!

It was 2am Tuesday morning when I woke up in terrible pain.  It was my thumb.  My main source of my arthritic pain.  HOLY COW, did it hurt.  I immediately got up and put on my brace.  

That dreaded brace... but it got me thinking... I haven't had to wear this since I started using my CBD oil.  And that's when it hit me.  My Ah-ha moment.  Am I having a withdrawal from the CBD oil???  I got up and used our dog, Izzy's oil... ewe... I know.  But hey, desperate times, call for desperate measures.  So, I tried not to think about how many times I had used that dropper in her mouth, and just did it.  

Now, hers is a lower dose than mine, so I went ahead and also used my Calm roll-on.  I was then able to go back to sleep, and when I woke up this morning, I was a new person!!!  Hallelujah!!!

Mine should be here any day.  For now I'm just so grateful that I figured out what was going on.  Yes, I googled withdrawals from CBD, and there are conflicting reports.  That's why I'm here to tell you that everyone is different, and YES YOU CAN HAVE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS FROM CBD.

*Side note... one of those medications that they put me on 7 years ago, has since been proven to be cancer causing.  AGAIN... THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR OPENING MY EYES TO OTHER OPTIONS!

How I was able to throw away my meds!

How I was able to throw away my meds!
Inhalers, nebulizer, and medications were all a part of my life 7 years ago.  Then I learned about essential oils, which then led me into a cleaner way of living.  And today, I'm so grateful that I threw all of this away!!!  That's right.  I threw away my nebulizer, my inhalers, my hormone patches, my meds for my digestive (including Zantac!  Have you heard the commercials that they now know that it was a cancer causing drug that you can now file a lawsuit :/ )

It wasn't easy. It wasn't over night.  BUT, I'm so grateful that I took that first step and started down this road by purchasing my first set of oils.  You CAN too!  And you won't be alone, we have a wonderful community that is here for you.  That will help answer your questions.  That will give you direction of where to start.  That will support you <3 

I know how important it is to be conscious of the powerful side effects of everyday medications.  The father of my children, the man I was married to for almost 20 years, the man that would have had so many grandchildren now died at the age of 40 because he was on so many medications.  One causing a side effect, that led to having to take another med, and yet another...

We need to be the stewards of our own bodies.  Ask questions.  Seek out healthier alternatives to everyday issues like heartburn, digestive issues, breathing issues, and so much more!  They are out there.  I have been hospitalized numerous times due to my asthma.  Since beginning my healthier journey 7 years ago, I have had one full blown asthma attack where I was able to open my lungs without an inhaler or nebulizer, and one case where in the past I would have been in a full blown attack; however, I was able to go into the situation fully prepared and support my lungs with strong immunity instead of waiting for them to fail.

Are you ready for a healthier journey?  We only have one body.  One shot at this life.  You are worth a life full of joy, health, and love...  Let me help you <3
