My Short Story from Surviving to Thriving

In May 2013, I was a heavyset, middle aged career woman, just trying to get through life, working for the weekends. Then, one stressful Friday afternoon at work in the middle of a tension headache and a looming deadline, my friend and coworker interrupted my pain and stress and handed me a bottle of Peppermint. At first, I was pretty aggravated at the interruption because I just wanted to get my work done, get home for the holiday weekend, and fall into bed hoping I'd be pain free by the next day. As I followed her instructions for this potent bottle, within seconds I was absolutely pain free, calling my husband, and blown away for the first time by essential oils.

That day my husband and I started our journey to a life of thriving, not just merely getting by and surviving, like SO many others around us. Less than two years later, I would resign my graphic design career of 22 years, to enjoy my life and share the wellness information I have received in all the research I've done for myself and the people I love the most.

Today, there are four products that I will champion and share, CBD, Peppermint, Progessence Plus, and NingXia Red. I’m never without Peppermint and Progessence Plus. I used to get 10-20 headaches a month and felt like I was always at the doctor and drug store. Plus, I didn’t like the way the medications made me feel when I had severe, debilitating migraines. Now that I know how to listen to my body, I can tell what triggers a headache or migraine for me. I avoid certain foods and bright lights, which helps. For stress headaches I’ve learned how to do breathing techniques to help refocus my mind and relax, in addition to applying Peppermint over my forehead, temples, and the back of my neck and shoulders. This helps almost instantly, relaxing my muscles, and was actually the reason I started using Young Living and started a lifestyle of wellness.

For migraines, I’ve learned that my body doesn’t do well when my hormones are out of balance. When I notice blinding auras, I quickly grab Progessence Plus, breathe it in, deeply, and apply a drop to the base of my skull, forehead, temples, and the back of my neck. The blindness typically is gone within minutes and I never get the debilitating headaches that used to cause me to retire to a dark room for 24 to 48 hours.

I also feel that drinking 2 - 4 ounces of NingXia Red, daily has kept my husband and I consistently well for seven years. When we travel, we carry it with us in our RV, or carry on when flying. Let’s face it, at 53, I don’t know many people my age who are not on some sort of medication. I’m happy to say, with our lifestyle of using natural products that support our body, we’ve been living this dream for almost eight years.

And CBD, well, I use it for SO many things; such as, after I work out to soothe my muscles, when I'm needing to get some great sleep, or when I want a little extra calm in my life. It works SO well, and as with other Young Living products I know that I'm not only getting the benefits for what I'm initially using them for but also the added benefits that it will bring my body back to balance and support my body systems, not detract from them.

These four things have helped us so much, by allowing me the opportunity to have more enjoyable days, without anymore suffering. Thank God! Our lives are better, our marriage is better, our family is better. I absolutely LOVE sharing with everyone how these products have literally changed our lives. We are well, thriving, and enjoying our lives to the fullest!
