STAYING HEALTHY and able to keep up with the many activities along the pathways of Ross Roads is a top priority!  Over the years, my husband, Ed, and I, have worked to make strategic lifestyle changes in diet and life choices when we each battled some health issues - and, we are reaping the benefits!  Taking ownership of one's health and wellness has never been more important than it is today with so much sickness surrounding us in work, school, and society in general.  Young Living Essential Oils have become an intricate part of our daily regimen.  Getting off his blood pressure medicine, cholesterol medicine, navigating allergy season, and thoroughly managing the pain caused by sciatica and arthritis, Ed's testimony of how essential oils have restored his quality of life is a big reason why we decided to step out and begin sharing what we've been learning about the use of essential oils in daily health and wellness. The science is sound - the results are proven.  Though the "pharmacy" around the corner might seem the expected route in treating health issues, more and more evidence is piling up proving the long term dangers of many common over the counter and prescription drugs - not to mention the plethora of toxins, chemicals, and hormones infecting commercial foods.  We've opted for the "Farm-acy" instead, and have returned to the historic remedies of nature and whole foods.  Want to know more?  We can connect you to some real answers!  Find out all about what Young Living's 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils can do for you by visiting our Independent Distributor website at:
