So it’s been a crazy few weeks… Fourth of July happened, two death by suicides in my area on the regional rail that I take to work everyday, a week long experience with some serious night terrors from my toddler, along with buying a PSK from Young Living, and booking a Salt Cave appointment on August 5th.
I feel like I’m turning into a hippie, minus the burning of my bra. I have given up body wash thanks to Norwex’s body cloths. I am beginning to diffuse oils to go to sleep with much thanks to Young Living oils (seriously SO good!), and lastly, hitting up a salt cave which is apparently supposed to be great for depression, anxiety, asthma, Lyme’s disease and respiratory issues.
I have been a long time fan of holistic care, I mean I used to work at a chiropractor’s office from 2011-2012. While I was working there I learned about spinal manipulations that help alleviate all sorts of problems in your body all by just adjusting your spine. I even learned about Young Living back then (who would’ve thought that oils could alleviate the pain of a headache) OR that a class 4 cold laser could assist with Plantar Fasciitis. Then when I left working there because I moved I was in total, to be blunt, hell. Allergies, pain, headaches, seriously NOTHING was working and I felt worse than ever.
Fast forward to 2016 when I started going back to a chiropractor AFTER I connected with the massage therapist from the former office I worked at who introduced me to oils along with lasers that can assist with so many things. And here I am with a 2 1/2 year old daughter, becoming a hippie. My PCP has ZERO sick appointment spots for me EVER so I always end up at my chiropractor’s office. So if my PCP has no time for me, than I should have no time for them & find alternative medicine. Welcome Young Living oils and Norwex. In tandem, my house is CLEANER, smells NICER, and I have so much better & deeper sleep. I really wake up rested. And for having a toddler, that speaks VOLUMES.
I have used “cranky pants” that keeps my freak outs at work at bay (because let’s face it, I am not the type of person who handles whining & obscene politics well at all). Keeping me grounded is MUCH easier than I thought with the help of Vetiver and most importantly headaches are few & far between because of my bi weekly neck adjustments. Not only are the adjustments helping me not have headaches, it’s not smelling those chemicals.
I want to make the cleanest and safest place it can be and it’s not just for me, it’s also for my daughter & my five year old furbaby cat. And while I should say it’s for my daughter the most; it’s for my cat. I say that because my cat is the last thing I have from my paternal grandparents. See, my grandfather passed away in January 2012 and I was fortunate enough to have his 92 Chevy Cavalier until I was married BUT in August of 2012, my then fiance and I took home a 12 week old kitten from my grandmother. I would’ve never thought that just a couple months later, my grandmother would pass away. So for the past five years it’s been my goal to make my cat bionic (fact: I was crazy enough at one point to have Harv have a litter of kittens so I would never lose the last piece of my grandmother). I mean seriously, I was rocked at one point but now Harv is a big sister.
Oh boy, here goes nothing the next few weeks as I use oils, sell Norwex and earn that free trip.. being a “hippie” never felt so GOOD! Healthier, cleaner, rested, AND a free vacation!!!!!!
