Say What? The Role the FDA & FTC Play

You may have seen by now that I have a passion for sharing and educating. I can’t help it… and at times I am unapologetic about my passion.

I don’t think I would be this way if I hadn’t spent 25+ years in the trenches of the pharmaceutical industry, and seen the carnage that results from loosely prescribing ‘bandaid medication’ instead of getting to the root of what is actually malfunctioning and working to correct what has gone awry holistically.

Candida is a sugar fermenting yeast that naturally lives within our digestive tract, and is helpful and necessary in our gut ecosystem when colonized in appropriate amounts. Unfortunately, 70-80% of all Americans have fallen below the wellness line and now suffer with chronic Candida overgrowth. How in the world did this happen to so many of us?

Amazon.com Oil Imposters?

Several days ago a friend and I had a conversation about a Young Living oil purchase she had made on Amazon. She was pleased with herself as she had gotten “our oils” at half the price that you and I would generally pay. Continue reading “Amazon.com Oil Imposters?”
