Why I Finally Decided To Get On The Bandwagon

In summer 2015 it seemed like everything I ate made me sick. I started cutting foods out, then realized that I was losing weight in an unhealthy way, still not feeling better, and that this was more than just food sensitivities. I went to the doctor. She ordered some tests. I completed said tests, went back for a follow up, and she told me that everything came back just fine and it was probably just stress-induced acid reflux, and to go get a box of Prilosec from the grocery store for under $10. A few weeks later I began receiving a series of bills totaling probably about $400—all to be told to buy Prilosec (which did work, by the way. It’s great stuff).


I felt a lack of control and a desperation about money. A year earlier I had gone back to school for a certificate program, had cut my work schedule back significantly, and had very little money, and certainly no money for a really disappointing doctor’s bill. I had lightly used essential oils for about four years at this point and had been playing with the idea of enrolling with a wholesale account for quite a while, but could never seem to justify that $150 for the Family Physicians Kit to enroll. After that doctor’s bill though, $150 seemed like a very small investment for a better first defense in my wellness routine.


I was right. I now use essential oils every day, in a variety of ways. I diffuse oils to help balance emotions, I take doTERRA vitamins as a part of my wellness routine, and I have my favorite oils and products to help ease upset stomachs, achy muscles, congestion, and more*. I have no problem seeing doctors or taking medications, but I feel like I am more mindful of my body, my health, and my overall wellness. From here I began exploring other home remedies outside of essential oils. I have options now, and that is empowering to me. I turn to essential oils, yoga, exercise, rest, hydration, herbs, etc. first, and then go from there.
