Before I knew what I know now, my family was sick on the regular. I did daycare in my home and my daughter was in school, so we were exposed to all. the. things. We dealt with it all...the seasonal stuff, the stuffed up stuff, the hormonal stuff (me), and the puking stuff. As most people do, we went to the doctor regularly for these things, which meant a copay, a prescription, and often several days off of work or school while we recovered. I knew that I wanted something different. I wanted us to be healthier, less-reliant on medicine (because...side effects), and I wanted to eliminate toxins from our home.
It was kind of overwhelming the more I learned about all of the nasty stuff we're exposed to in our food, our air, our personal care products. (I'm one of those nerds that likes to read about that stuff.) Marketing can be misleading (I know, that's a shocker, huh?), so you can't even trust when a label says "natural". How's a mom supposed to protect her family?!
Fortunately, I found the solution when I was introduced a company that I'm not all heart-eyes for. I began slowly with a starter kit of goodies, but what I found was an entire one-stop-shop of products that I could truly trust and feel good about using on my family. In a relatively short amount of time (a year or two), we were able to swap out almost all of the harmful chemicals in our home! It wasn't overwhelming anymore, in fact, it became pretty easy.
It's been almost five years since I found that company. We hardly ever have to visit the doctor anymore, in large part because we're just not sick as often, as bad, or for as long. But it's also because I have become empowered as an advocate for my family's health, I trust my mommy instincts to know when we need to go in vs. when it's something we can tackle at home, and because I now have a "toolbox" at the ready that allows me to do all of that.
Now, I love helping other moms find their own success! I would love to meet you, so please reach out and message me!
