Why We Left to Rebuild with doTERRA

What was it that compelled Nathan and I to walk away from everything we’d built for 7 years to start over in this industry with a new company? I never dreamed this would be my story, but I’ve come to see that living a life of faith is rarely predictable, has numerous unexpected twists and turns, and always requires us to step out before we see the end of the story. This key principle of trust and faith is what drove us

Oates Big Business Announcement

Hi friends, Nathan and I are super excited to share our hearts with you today and about a new adventure in the Oates’ house.  As you know, we love wellness and helping people find the “pieces” of their healthy lifestyle puzzle. For the last 7 years, we have been intensely invested in a specific nutritional company as one of those pieces and have been using and sharing their products for the last 16 years.  During those years our desire has been to do everything

Mommy New Year Healthy RESET

  Happy New Year!   Well, sort of…   Every year, I think of September as the “Mommy New Year.”  This is the time of year us moms have just crammed in our last family vacation, BBQ, and trip to the pool.  Then we sped off to Walmart or Target to fight our way through the gauntlet of school supply isles, trying to get everything on the list before the first day of school.  Those of us brave enough to venture out on tax-free weekend

When You’re Stuck, #ResetWithMe

Anytime someone chooses honesty and authenticity it’s risky.  Each of us have different “lenses” due to life experiences and/or faith that we evaluate others through.   Although being authentic and real may feel risky, but it’s far more satisfying and freeing to be “you” and let go of what others think you should be or need to be.   Many of us live under layers of fear, shame, and insecurity, exhausted with trying to cover up the ugly, imperfect parts of ourselves – it’s

Busting the Myths on Soy Protein

There are many opinions on soy protein that clutter the internet and those opinions leave us reeling with more questions than answers most of the time.  I don’t wish to clutter it more .  What I do want is to give you facts on what clinical research has shown to be true for years and I want to share with you my own personal experience.  I want to help you on your journey for answer to these deep (and serious

Where to Start with Women’s Health

I have found that smart exercise, a good diet of alive food, and proper supplementation can make it possible for you to sail through the seasons of womanhood without the all of the horrors.   Just because I am female doesn’t mean that my day has to be characterized by mood swings, cravings, PMS or menopause symptoms, breast cancer, and any other things that seem to be pinned on us women as part of our “lot” in life – simply because we

How to Curb Cravings

  A secret is defined as knowledge kept or reserved for the privileged or initiated.  I don’t like that definition very much when it comes to my hormones!  I want to be one of the privileged who are in the “know” and who possesses the insider secrets to such mysterious things.   Luckily, I am in the know.  And I want to share the secret to curbing your cravings once and for all.   I know because I’ve lived it.   Did you know that

Women’s Hot Health Topics Video

[youtube][/youtube]   As women, we have unique needs that men do not have.  Our bodies, and hormones, are always changing so our unique needs require a unique solution!   Listen in to learn about natural solutions to common estrogen related illnesses like PMS, Menopause, mood swings, cravings, and more.  This thought changed my outlook, and thus my daily experience.     The changes in a woman’s life are inevitable, but the symptoms are optional!     Did you hear that?  You don’t have to just accept everything you’ve been told

Say Good-Bye to PMS for Good

Do you feel crabby, irritable, moody, confused, cloudy, bloated, tired, angry, uncomfortable, or fatigued?  Do you get to that point each month where you actually feel a little (or alot) crazy and feel like someone needs to admit you to a mental hospital?  I know I’ve felt that.  That’s why I’m pushing RESET on my hormones – again.   Have you ever been told that your mood swings, cramps, or hot flashes even are “just part of being a woman”?   I know I

Is Soy Protein Good or Bad?

As we all journey towards better health, one of the first things we do is start researching.   It’s so easy to get lost in this world of “research.”  I did years ago.  I wanted to know everything about everything…which is not necessarily bad.  However, something I quickly discovered is that there is “supporting” evidence on so many health debates for both sides. SO, how in the heck do I know which angle is right??   I got so scared to even eat
