I have always known my brain was different, but it wasn't until I was 23 years old that I got confirmation. Like many of you, I went through a childhood of misdiagnosis and lack of understanding for being "different" before receiving my official ADHD diagnosis.
I began using essential oils back in 1998 to manage the anxiety and insomnia that came along with my ADHD. After seeing the positive impact that my holistic protocols had on my own life, I was asked to implement them in the pediatric clinic I nursed for. We always used nutrition, music, and essential oils to manage symptoms before turning to medications in our ADHD kids.
Later in life, I was diagnosed with a rare liver disease that prevents me from using any pharmaceuticals and I began relying more on nutrition and herbs for support. This discovery led me down the path of my formal Holistic Health Care education and started my mission to provide safe, effective, and compassionate support to the ADHD community.
