Hi! I'm Yolanda.
I help busy moms take care of their families’ health needs wholistically by creating a comprehensive wellness plan (including aromatherapy & naturopathy) that is effective and easy to follow.
A Healthy Family = A Blessed Life.
It’s easy to take health for granted when everyone is doing fine. But the moment things turn, perspectives shift and quick!
When a family member is ill, it’s not just an individual problem, it affects the entire household. And for good reason! As humans, there is nothing more important than the health and safety of those we love. And as the Mama Bear, our natural instincts to care, protect, and serve kick into overdrive.
An Integrated Holistic Wellness Plan Helps
What if you had an integrative wellness plan that was easy to follow and got ahead of illness and dis-ease? What if you could rely on a trusted resource that has years of
practical experience with proven results?
Utilizing holistic modalities is one of the most powerful ways to be proactive. Simple and consistent additions of things like herbs, essential oils, and natural supplements can improve your life on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
But what if you’re already dealing with a health challenge, either your own, your child’s, your spouse’s or even an aging parent? Suddenly the world stops and you start gobbling up all the information available searching for answers that will bring about results.
Healing is in My DNA -
I’m a 4th Generation Nurse
Caregiving was a part of my upbringing. The matriarchs of the family modeled the meaning of selfless service. Learning by their example wove the fabric of who I am today.
At age 19, I started my nursing career and since then have not stopped learning or practicing.
Witnessing sickness day in and day out leaves an imprint on you. An imprint that provides the passion needed to be open and curious about alternative modalities to bring about optimal health.
When It’s Personal, It’s Time To Get Serious
In my life, I’ve experienced a series of family illness, loss, and pain.
I watched my father die of a brain tumor. After that, when another close family member was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition (and traditional medical doctor’s said there was nothing they could do), I knew deep in my soul, there HAD to be a solution!
I’m a firm believer that only diagnosing by symptomatology and not addressing the whole person is the wrong way.
As a nurse, I had a wonderful foundation. And also knew there were more facets to health and healing. I began learning all that I could from the world of alternative medicine and got certifications in herbology, aromatherapy, and naturopathy.
We started integrating nutrition, supplements, massage, reflexology, kinesiology, and other complementary therapies. Do you want to know what the best part was? We started seeing results almost immediately!
The twitches went away, there were no yucky side-effects (which was a common expectation with traditional meds), and cognition improved!
I knew I was on to something and committed to dedicating my life to helping others take care of themselves holistically by integrating natural means.
Combining Allopathic and Complementary Therapies
Now, make no mistake, there is a place for traditional treatments! However, when we overlook complementary and alternative measures we negate a world of healing tools that can truly make all the difference in the world.
Take my Mom. She was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent the standard treatment plan which included chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. But what made the difference was what we did alongside which kept not only her dignity but her spirits up too.
We used natural supplements and focused on nutrition which allowed her to maintain her glow and healthy weight. We used Frankincense essential oil to help her feel at peace, grounded, and balanced. We used Cedarwood and Rosemary to help her hair grow back strong. Those are just a few things that helped her along as she walked her healing path.
My Mission Is To Help You
I know God blessed me to be a gift to help others. I see it with my own eyes over and over again.
My life’s work is to help busy Moms keep their families well through integrative modalities. To be a trusted beacon of knowledge that can navigate both the traditional side of wellness and the natural side that harnesses the power of plant medicine.
There is an undeniable strength in unity.
Thanks so much for being here!
To your health & happiness,
Purple - Represents wealth, creativity, magic and wisdom. It’s high on the color spectrum and it gives me peace!
