Hello! I'm Yvette!
Thanks for stopping. I’m here to help empower you to live your best, joyful life. I have a variety of real-life stories, products, and items that have helped countless other people.
The journey started many years ago with just being open to new information. Information that was not the ‘norm’ but with the years of ongoing struggles for myself and my son, I just knew there had to be something else for my family that could help.
A few years ago, I took a scary step and just walked away from my secure legal assistant office job to work from home. Lots of people thought I had lost my mind but I was battling some ‘unknown’ health issues. I was on six prescriptions, feeling worse each day, with no answers, just more questions.
I was scared. I lived every day based on fear. Fear of everything, everyone, of the unknown, and scared my son wouldn’t have a mother anymore if I didn’t figure out what was going on. I needed less stress, more freedom, and more flexibility in my schedule.
Doing things my way, it took just a few months, I was off all six of my prescriptions and feeling like a new person. The learning and growing have not stopped. I continue to educate myself on all things health and wellness-related.
My Family, my world, my everything!
I was born and raised in Minnesota.
My son was born in 1999 (going by Z). He had an early language delay which led to a diagnosis of developmental disabilities, many ear infections due to dysfunctional Eustachian tubes, and has had seven ear surgeries. He was first diagnosed with ADHD, followed by Autism in 2009, and has collected quite a long list of other diagnoses throughout the years. Z is going at life on his own path, he's making milestones, just in his own time.
Many years were spent researching, taking classes, learning, and advocating relentlessly for him. The emotional rollercoaster took its toll some days. Being a mom has been the most rewarding and the hardest all at the same time, yet I would never change anything.
I met my husband, Nick, at the gym and we got married in 2018. He has been self-employed in remodeling for the last 15 years.
He is definitely the rock of the family. He stands strong in his values and does everything for us. His acceptance and mentoring of my son is heart-warming, he even had vows for him at our wedding.
I never thought I would have someone like him in my corner. I am truly blessed every day in so many ways.
I enjoy spending time with family, reading, being outside (but not in the MN winters), and driving around in my Jeep.
I am involved with a couple of the local organizations that provide athletic opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. I help advocate for individuals with special needs and advocate for health freedom.
Some fun facts about me in no particular order:
I’m obsessed with my Jeep and "topless" and "naked" have a new meaning. It’s so calming, even when it’s 55 degrees in MN
I love elephants, they are such amazing creatures.
I alphabetize my essential oils, seasonings, and frozen vegetables.
I have dyslexia. Schooling was very hard for me and I still struggle daily.
Summer is my absolute favorite season, the hotter the better.
I cook a lot, but secretly, I’m not a fan. It’s just a necessity.
I love changing my hair. Long time friends joked they never knew what to expect.
My promise to you!
No two people are the same, that's why I am inspired by a person-centered approach. Everyone should have the vitality they dream of.
I am fascinated by holistic wellness, truly believe a body can heal, and a person can gain health through natural ways. I strive for my family to be healthy with as few chemicals and pharmaceuticals as possible. I wish the same for you and can help you.
Looking back over my life, there are too many personal experiences and challenges to draw from. This has gifted me knowledge and perspective. It's been everything from amazing to rock bottom - financially, emotionally, and mentally. I know the internal struggles to be scared, hurt, frustrated, lost, or feel alone. To feel like no one understands or everyone is against you or like you can never do anything right.
I'm here to help you through, you are not alone.
The journey I’ve traveled has led to much self-reflection and deep healing. No matter what has happened in my life, tomorrow is a new day and another day to be grateful and to make new choices, learn, be healthy, and grow.
Peace and Blessing
