My interest in health, nutrition and wellness grew out of my personal desire to experience optimal health.
I was sick a lot as a kid, almost always tired. The doctor told my mother every test showed I was fine--- it was all in my head— I believed him. But years later, after becoming so fatigued that I could not get out of bed, a friend convinced me to see a nutrition doctor. After one test, he explained that my problem was easy to fix and sent me home, not with any meds, but with a holistic diet. He told me if I did not make lifestyle changes, I would be diabetic by the time I was 30 or 40. Diabetes runs in my family and so does heart disease. I thank God for what I learned because now that I’m in my 60s, I have neither diabetes or heart disease. In fact, after making the recommended dietary adjustments, I felt better in two weeks. And after 5 months, I felt better than I had my entire life. Thus, began my journey to discover nature’s design for wellness.
One of the biggest milestones of my wellness journey was when a friend asked me to try her YL essential oils. I was struggling with respiratory issues at the time, and to my surprise, the oils helped. But I thought they were a bit expensive and I definitely didn’t want to have anything to do with network marketing stuff. That was over 20 years ago. I’ve continued to return to YL products after trying several others that ether didn’t work well, caused me problems, or didn’t work at all.
