Drug Free Treatment of ADD

UPDATED!!!!! SINCE WRITING THIS BLOG I DISCOVERED L-THEANINE AND IT ELIMINATED MY ADD ISSUES.

I am a long time believer that our health is one of the most valuable things we can have and coming from a place were I didn't always have perfect health I think I value it even more. So I am always looking for ways to improve my own health.

Back in about 2008 I had taken some tests and a doctor felt that I might be ADD. Now I had another doctor that told me that because I was born dyslexic, that when you get stressed out it looks exactly like ADD. He also said that if I were to try to get treatment for ADD chances are it wouldn't help because if I got stressed out I would have ADD symptoms anyway. Sort of a catch 22 if you will.

However, first of all I overcame dyslexia and I no longer have reading, writing or speech problems. So I don't think that his conclusion holds much weight. In addition, if one can manage stress that is in of itself a cure. I am a strong believer in taking time for meditation, stretching, exercise, massages, breathing etc. All things that fight stress.

In addition to this I have a lot of family members with ADD, which tells me chances are there is still room for improvement.

So I decided to continue my research on ADD and natural cures. I have tried a lot of things such as essential oils with some improvement actually. One I use called Brain Power is pretty good.

But today I found a very interesting article that claimed a number of issues that could cause ADD that I had not heard before. One was that of being allergic to dairy and chocolate. I already am well aware of the chocolate allergy. Well then I look up symptoms of dairy allergies and I have them all. In fact, I eat almost too much dairy! So this week I am eliminating dairy from my diet and seeing if I notice any change.

Here are all the things that this article mentions could cause ADD:

  •  Food additives 
  •  Refined sugar 
  •  Poor nutrition 
  •  Natural light deficiency 
  •  Food allergies 
  •  Heavy metal toxicity (such as lead, mercury, or cadmium)

What is interesting to me about this I absolutely suffered from natural light deficiency and thus moved south to live in Texas vs Washington State where it rained so much. As for the other items on this list I am going to have to investigate them one by one. He suggests some supplements to take for the metal toxicity and I am not excited to jump in and just starting taking anything I know little about. 

If you are curious and want to read the article I am referring to you can find it here

I will make sure to blog again on progress if any that going through this list he suggests provides.

I hope this helps anyone else out there looking for a solution.

Immediate Stress Relief



Looking for a way to relieve stress? This stress away essential oil is not only one of the most popular ones amongst my customers it is my favorite too.

I enjoy making sugar scrubs with this oil because it is perfect for someone to use before they go to bed at night in a shower. Some individuals have told me that they have gotten rid of skin issues due to stress using this oil as well.

I started to use it in a time in my life when life was at an all time high. I would diffuse it, put it on topically, put it in bath salts, my bath with oil or a sugar scrub. The result made such a huge difference people would comment at how peaceful I was!

If you are looking for something to just take the edge off this is definitely a great oil to use. It also smells wonderful.

It is currently $39 and you can purchase it on my website here

Essential Oil Customers

I haven't blogged for awhile but felt today that I wanted to take some time to do a blog for my customers. All of those out there that order essential oils from me and those of you who come to me for spa products.

One of the wonderful things about being a customer is that you don't have to worry about a business, you don't have to know what oil to get for what, you just get to ask me! I also like to show my appreciation to returning customers by giving them extra gifts like homemade spa products!

I have been able to make amazing sugar scrubs, essential oil face mists, anti-aging eye serum and bath salts. Everyone loves these extras especially when they are pure and natural and my customers absolutely LOVE getting them from me.  In fact, one of my customers has requested I make a stress relief sugar scrub and lotion for her and her family because it has relieved skin problems.

I see a lot of people out there with essential oil businesses and they are always just trying to get people to sign up as a distributor. I prefer to have actual customers that purchase my product when they want and return because they had a great experience.

If you happen to be looking for a place to purchase essential oils from I would be happy to serve you. Even if you would just like to take a look at my online store, please do! And let me know if you have any questions a long the way.

One of my favorite products for the Spring and Summer season are the Lavender bath washes and soaps. This is because Lavender is a natural antihistamine and really helps with allergies. You will find those on my homepage towards the bottom. Also I believe Thieves oil which is the first one on my homepage is a must have! It has a 99.8% kill rate on viral bacteria and is a great way to keep from getting sick!

Why I Use Essential Oils To Improve My Health

Have you ever wondered how someone gets into using essential oils to improve their health and why they do so? Maybe it has sounded strange to you and you think of it more as something that is found at a spa.

I started to use essential oils about five years ago. Someone had handed me what is called "Thieves oil" but I thought it sounded weird and put it in my cub board. But then I was interviewing someone on my podcast talking about the same oils and at the time I had a sinus infection. She challenged me to put it on the bottom of my feet and that by morning it would be gone.

Well I figured I had nothing to lose so that is exactly what I did and by morning not only had a broken a fever the sinus infection was gone. Being prone to sinus infections I felt I needed to get these oils for my own personal health.

I never planned on starting a business, I just got a membership to get a discount on the oils. But then I started to hang out with my friends and one day I had brought some of the oils with me to a Bible Study. I had made my own anointing oil and these friends of mine always loved to pass around the various anointing oils.

Well one of my friends was really sick and had just undergone major surgery. She really liked the smell of the oil I had brought and kept smelling it calling it the "bong oil". lol  Well the next day she called me and demanded I meet her and others for dinner because she was completely healed and she was demanding I tell her how to get them.

I can't say I have ever been a great "sales" person but when your friends pin you in a corner demanding answers you give them the information. Now I have about 195 people in my business and so many have testimonies of getting off of medications and improved health.

For myself I have been able to nearly eliminate sinus infections, have been able to depend on oils instead of antibiotics in most cases, and there have been so many ways it has saved me money going to the doctor. They are both soothing and helpful.

I started to make homemade bath products and gave those to my friends, who have actually been able to improve their health from eliminating skin issues, helping with stress and helping with sleep.
