Intergenerational trauma is real, y'all! This is one of the most intriguing and powerful topics I've had the honor of writing about, and it's exciting to see scientific evidence of theories I learned about it psych school!
I'm honored and excited to be featured with amazing Atlanta yogis in the new issue of Mantra Yoga + Health Magazine, wherein I dish a bit about my wild child past. (Wild woman present stories to follow at a future date ;)) http://mantramag.com/what-is-the-hardest-thing-you-have-ever-done-for-love/
Y'ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of my absolute favorite articles I've ever written, and I'm sooooooo proud of it!!!!! I started researching essential oils a couple of years ago when I was writing an article about the health benefits of aromatherapy, and I was amazed to learn of all the countless, incredible things plants can do–and frustrated/puzzled as to why we don't all know it and why these types of remedies are not being more aggressively investigated and developed. And plant-bias is real y'all: one site I pitched this idea to said "I get that you like essential oils, but what you have here isn't a science story." Really? Anyway... I'm thrilled to be spreading the word. Hope you will too! (And please–stay away from meat that's not antibiotic-free!)
For the May issue of Women's Health, I wrote about the healing benefits of aromatherapy using essential oils (the only way to go... stay away from synthetic scents!). My dear clients have probably heard all they ever cared to hear about the topic since I wrote this article and bombarded them with science-geek factoids Now it's everyone else's turn! Below is the link to the online version of the article. Let me know what you think, and I'd love to hear about your favorite oils and ways to use them. Enjoy! http://healthyliving.msn.com/health-wellness/smell-this-heal-that
