Hi, I’m Lynell!

Let us go a little deeper into my story!

I married my high school sweetheart. We have five children. Three on earth, two in heaven. We currently reside in Wisconsin.

I’ve been interested in natural living and holistic health since my early 20s slowly learning things here and there but was still eating processed foods, taking tylenol for every little ache, and getting suckered into greenwashing claims because I did not know any better.

I did not get serious about natural living and holistic health until 2019. I am going to back up just a little bit. At the beginning of 2018, we got pregnant with our second but had a miscarriage.
One in four pregnancies ends in a miscarriage so we did not connect the dots at the time that it had to do with my health.

We got pregnant again 6 months later. At 25 weeks and 6 days, we found out our baby girl all of a sudden had no heartbeat. Her birth was a stillbirth. They ran many tests and found out she had a blood clot in her umbilical cord. I also found out that I have the MTHFR mutant gene.

After this life-altering event, I started getting serious about my health. I started researching EVERYTHING! Like what’s in our food, the products we buy, and the medication we use. What I uncovered shocked me…

I found out our bodies are being exposed to Hundreds and thousands of toxins EVERY DAY. I set out to minimize my toxic load and switch over to a holistic lifestyle; The result is my body has been healing and I feel better than I ever had!

Which leads me to creating this page and spreading awareness to this toxin free movement!

My mission is to help you reduce your toxic load and be informed!
