I hope by sharing our family’s story, I’m able to help others who have struggled like us.

Our family has struggled for over 12 years with mental illness (severe depression, anxiety, brain fog, moodiness, chronic fatigue, headaches). Not everyone in our family, of course, but as you know, when one struggles in the family, we are all in it together. Most people may not know this about us, because mental illness doesn’t always show on the outside. It’s been sorely hard. For me personally, it’s felt lonely, exhausting, like our life was out of control, and a deep sadness from watching someone I love so much suffer.

At times, we’ve had improvement through various treatments like:

  • antidepressants
  • oils
  • counseling
  • chiropractors
  • vitamin IV infusions
  • functional medicine doctors
  • extreme diet changes
  • and more

Some have provided temporary help, while others had side effects that outweighed the benefits. So much money has been invested in searching for something with real, lasting benefits. Having a very healthy, plant-focused diet helped the most, but what felt like a chemical imbalance, continued.

We felt like we’d tried everything and there was nowhere to turn….it was exhausting and sorely hard.

***However, we tried something back in July that has become the best help yet! A friend, (who I was aware struggled with depression for decades) talked to me about a new mental wellness company. I was skeptical because I’ve never seen something that lined up with what I believed about the gut-brain connection in a natural holistic way. I spent the next couple of months researching everything about the company …we decided to give these natural products a try. We were desperate as things were very rocky again. What I read about this company was everything I’d known to be true about gut and brain connection that resonated with me. It felt like truth. It made so much sense….so we took the leap of faith and hoped for some benefit.

My husband began taking these natural mental health supplements back in June 2018. It took a couple of months to begin seeing benefits. There was a domino effect….After two months, he told me he wasn’t experiencing brain fog anymore. I remember the morning vividly in the loft. We felt like that was awesome, and if that was the only benefit, it’s totally worth it! Around month 3, he noticed his anxiety had decreased significantly. After 4 months, he told me he felt like himself again, and hadn’t felt this way in years. Dark cloud, irrational thoughts, panic attacks, spiraling down to a dark place…gone.

(((With tears and all, I can’t even begin to express the gratitude I feel in my heart for him to feel well again. This has been a HUGE deal for our family!)))

It has been so inspiring and moving for me to witness these changes in him. Our family thrives in ways it hasn’t before beyond just mental health. It has been, by far, the best tool in our toolbox.

**After having this amazing experience, I partnered with this mental wellness company and their natural products!!! Gosh, I think, how could I not?! This is honestly the last thing I thought I’d ever do, but is the first thing we’ve tried that has made the biggest difference. And, I want other people to experience this too! It’d feel selfish not to!

There you have it…this is WHY I am able to be present again!

I love this quote by Gloria Steinem that says:

“The final stage of healing is using what happened to you to help other people.”

I am now helping people with their health in big ways…and it feels AMAZING! I can help you too….Please reach out to me below with any questions. I’d love to hear from you! <3

I feel so relieved to share this experience with you! It’s been bottling inside of me to share what’s been happening and the transformation we’ve been experiencing. Thank you. Thank you for being here, listening, loving, supporting me, and not judging me. It means the world. <3

XO,

-Laura
