Welcome to my blog! Honestly, the idea of a blog was neat, but execution has been intimidating and taken almost a year. Stepping into new patterns, I have asked for and embraced help (from my closet to filing) over the past few months, including this blog. I also thought it would be fun to hear about my practice or recommendations from another person's perspective. So, I have invited patients, colleagues and friends to contribute to my posts.
This first post is from Melissa Mortimer, a patient, friend and essential oil colleague. I have been recommending essential oils to patients since the start of my practice. After three years of exploring the market, Young Living Oils consistently surface with a quality and reliable range of products. Scroll to the bottom of the post for a link.:
I met Dr. Caroline Hartridge over two years ago at a holistic salt therapy spa. I hardly recognize the person I used to be. I was recovering from a concussion from a car accident and knee deep in anxiety and depression. I just moved back to Long Island from Washington, DC and I was in the midst of a life-changing transition. Meeting Dr. Hartridge was yet another sign from the universe that I was on the path to healing. She helped me see the strength within myself and the power of holistic healing. With Dr. Hartridge’s help, I felt empowered to take care of myself physically, mentally and spiritually. Through her guidance towards a more plant-based diet, the use of CBD oil and other natural remedies, I began to see incredible shifts.
The last two years of my life has been a phase of transformative healing. Through energy work, yoga, whole foods, movement, meditation and essential oils, I am living a life I once dreamed about. I became a certified yoga teacher and did additional training in restorative yoga---a deeply relaxing practice suited for any phase of healing. Fascinated by the chakra system and energy healing, I became a Reiki Master and I am grateful to be able to share healing with others. After embracing my intuitive gifts, I help empower others to see their own unique offerings to share with the world. It is truly a ripple effect when we link arms in healing. We raise the vibration of the planet as we each step into our power.
I am grateful and excited to link arms with Dr. Hartridge through Young Living essential oils. Together, we look forward to educating others about the power of plant-based medicine. The oils, supplements, skincare and household products have helped me live a more natural life, which positively affects every area of my well-being. Essential oils are the life force of plants--the powerful essence that contains potent healing energy. From migraines and sleep support to aches and pains and relaxation, essential oils are a powerful plant based alternative. Although essential oils seem to be everywhere right now, just as with food, quality matters. Young Living has the highest processing standards, their “seed to seal” guarantee, and their vitality line of ingestible oils are certified Non-GMO.
