About a year ago I reached a defining moment in my life… my husband was struggling with his health in many ways but most notably with IBS and other gastrointestinal woes. My 2 year old son, who had also been dealing with more than his fair share of gastrointestinal issues, had just officially crossed the threshold from “late talker” into “speech impaired” and was exhibiting major red flags for ASD, which initiated an absolute mountain of paperwork and several meetings and evaluations to find out what kinds of therapies he needed and what he “qualified” for. And on top of all of this I was struggling with constant fatigue, hormonal issues, daily headaches… So we were basically just your average 21st Century American family (haha joking… kind of)
When all of these symptoms and struggles culminated, although we had gotten so used to the way things were, we decided to adjust the way we were doing life, course correct, and start living intentionally.
And praise the Lord for internet resources, family support, and essential oils because we are on the road to recovery! And I’ve made this blog to record our trials and triumphs on this road to… ummm, wherever we’re going… not sure at this point, I just know wherever it is we’re getting there slowly, with lots of wisdom and ghee (grass-fed, organic, non-GMO, BPA free, HDMI capable, blah, blah, blahhhhhhh…) OK I’M BACK. See! This stuff can kind of be overwhelming… but don’t you worry, that’s what I’m here for! 😉
