Health and Wellbeing

Who here has trouble sleeping?? Or just can't switch their brain off at night?
Ever since I've been put on these cancer-preventative drugs (which have violently thrown me into menopause amongst other things), I've had some serious trouble sleeping. They say insomnia is part and parcel of what I'm going through, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but knowing the reasons doesn't make it easier...especially when there didn't appear to be much I could do about it.
And I'm not the only one who struggles with sleep difficulties in our house. My son, who is on the spectrum, has to have Melatonin every night to help him go to sleep. My daughter is nearing the end of her school year and with that comes a whole lot of stress and anxiety - so she hasn't been sleeping the best, and ever since my hubby has started his new job, he has struggled to turn his mind off at night.
Ok so that was a quick background story, and I wanted to share that with you so you know that we understand (intimately) first hand what it's like to be 'sleep challenged'.
But all that has just changed.
Cue the drumroll......Because YAY! We've actually found something that has helped solve all of these problems!! And boy does it work. I'm talking 'all-night-deep-coma' kind of work. Let me tell you about it please? Because I just can't keep this to myself!
Not long ago, on my never ending quest to find healthy natural alternatives in life - I was introduced to essential oils. And not just any essential oil - but doTERRA essential oils, which are in a purity class all on their own! The thought process behind using essential oils is simple - these powerful natural alternatives were around and solving problems long before mainstream medicine took over. Not that I have anything huge against mainstream medicine....but you know what...that's a whole other subject.
So I decided to take a chance on these oils, because not only was there the possibility our sleep could be sorted, but there were hundreds of other benefits to. I was particularly interested in the hormone balancing blend that could help me with these raging hot flashes, and something that could help me manage the beginnings of lymphedema.
Cutting straight to the point, or should I say the results:
Not only does my son not have to take melatonin for the first time in years, but my husband, daughter and myself have managed to sleep like heavy rocks all night. Insomnia solved. Anxiety gone. Busy brain switched off. Yes it's true!
I might get one hot flash a day now, and when I do I dot a little oil on my pulse points and it goes away. The first time I massaged some oil into my hand and wrist, the swelling reduced overnight. I also have a nifty little blend for headaches and hayfever, and this is just the very beginning of a very long list of things these oils can do.
To say that I am over the moon, can't stop grinning, (much less talking about) this life changing thing, is a gross understatement. I'm literally struggling to find the right words to communicate how excited I am right now lol
I also can't WAIT to get my hands on the new Copaiba oil which I've seen do some truly miraculous things around chronic pain, but I'll save that whole talk for another post. If I'm right, and I think maybe I will be - this could be a serious game changer for those of us with major pain issues.
Anyway....I shared all that with you because obviously I've finally found something that works, is natural and good for you, and is easy to get. I told you I'd be sharing some of the stuff that's been working for me right?
Get in touch if your interested ok....
I am happy to put my time where my mouth is and help you with any questions etc. Seriously. I didn't just write this whole thing to brag, then turn my back....
