RADIO-An Excellent Platform For Health & Wellness

Today was exciting!

I got to put my passion to work in a natural way with natural solutions during an essential oil workshop for Physical therapists.

That’s right, doTerra essential oils are one layer of my Wellness Advocate profile, which I intend to marry with my radio career in the near future.  You see, my interest in broadcasting has not diminished, but rather it has become a platform for me to empower people to live healthier and fuller lives.   Since 2000, my personal journey has taken me on a fascinating and synergistic path of mind/body/spirit exploration.

I have learned so much, and I want to share all of it.  I’ve worked with nutritionists, meal planners, dietitians, personal trainers, physical therapists, pilates instructors, elite athletes, chefs, doctors, health coaches and business people who have each taught me ways to live optimally.  Since youth, I’ve had the urge to live full and fierce, but certain things always got in the way of fulfilling my mission.  Attending the global doTerra essential oil ONE convention last month, I can’t believe it was just last month, gave me a sense of clarity that I could’t quite grasp before, but has now evolved to 20/20 vision.  The lessons at the convention confirmed in my mind that I love dealing with and learning about, how to live a life that feels and looks good inside and out. Eventually, I will parlay all my education and experience into a live radio broadcast, for the moment though it’s a gift to share in person with as many persons as possible.


The possibility to share and teach about one aspect of wellness arose today when Maria Dussias PT, MBA and IMPACT owner, invited me to present a doTerra essential oil workshop to the exceptionally well trained physical therapists and athletic trainers at IMPACT Physical Therapy in the South Loop of Chicago.  Liz, Keelan, Kara and Mark gave me their undivided attention as I presented pure and therapeutic oils used to offer relief to headaches, sleep issues, back and neck pain, post muscle soreness, muscle recovery, immunity and anti inflammatory situations.  Our session was enlightening and rewarding in that these highly trained professionals are also seeking ways to empower people to physically feel better.

We explored:

DEEP BLUE for pain and stiff muscles

LAVENDER for stress and anxiety

BERGAMOT & WHITE FUR for chronic pain

BREATHE vapor stick for respiratory challenges

ON GUARD for immunity

FRANKINCENSE for inflammation

PEPPERMINT for headaches


The PT’s and staff at IMPACT have a strong desire to offer their athletes and patients the most most effective natural solutions for pain, stress and muscle tension.

For example, The Recovery Room offers a state-of-the-art recovery services and therapeutic tools. CRR is open to the public and is perfect for anyone in need of physical recovery, wellness, or post-training recovery.  Essential oils will be the perfect compliment to CRR.

Compression boots flush out all the junk from legs, hips and the entire body.  Kara just came off a 10 mile run and was thrilled to demo the compression boots for us!

As you can see Jeff, clearly a CUBS fan and follower, has not let his shoulder pain get the best of him as he took the time to don a CUBS sweater to his PT session!


Chicago is a great and magnificent city which offers a multitude of “BESTS,” besides the best sports teams, one of excellent place in the area of wellness is IMPACT!  People, check out IMPACT for healing and recovery, and coming soon….doTerra ESSENTIAL OILS.

Essential oils, similar to a positive Kefigized life, are happy, healing and healthy.  I love them.  They seem to make everything better and there is research behind them.  I invite you to reach out to me if you have any questions about how to feel better in your skin with a little help from doTerra.  Write me [email protected]

In the meantime, thank you to Maria and her attentive staff for allowing me the privilege to spend the morning sharing the beauty and benefit of doTerra pure and therapeutic essential oils!
