What happens when we commit to our own healing... *more* than our own suffering? What happens when we release the labels we've given ourselves and embrace the role of being our own advocates for health and healing...Read More
Mood Boosting Blend: This new product is somewhat like a multivitamin, but it doesn’t have dozens of different vitamins and minerals. Why? Because many people are not deficient or in need of ALL of those vitamins.
Also many people (especially anxiety-prone or mood sensitive people) can have issues with certain vitamins within a multivitamin. As you've probably noticed by now, Lifted has a big-ol' sweet spot for the anxiety-prone.Read More
I released an old story this morning while I was on my daily walk.
I do not mean I released it to the press or on to social media.
What I mean is, I decided go let it go.
This particular story has not been serving me and I was finally ready to release it.
The story was:
Strong People Do NOT Ask for Help
This story is obviously false. It’s so very, terribly false.
So, why hang on to it for so long?
You see, I recently became obsessed with probiotics because I saw what they could do.
They helped my son's eczema far better than any pharmaceutical creams.
They helped lift my mood and helped me chill out (What!?! I'm high-strung.)

These days, my kids are much more resilient and healthy.Read More
**Flashback ** to SEVERAL months ago.
I was waffling.
I wanted to create my own line of probiotics.
But it was a big undertaking.
I had been studying the impact of specific bacterial strains on mood and the body's stress response.
And then, I got an email.
Honestly the alternate title for this post could have been:
Who the hell Do I think I am to start a line of probiotics?
The great news is... I know exactly who I am and in this post I'm going to tell you.
As far as the “how” goes, I always like to start with this clarification:
No, I did not get "all breaking bad" up in my house.
The process of starting my own natural supplement company is a lot like starting any other product-based company.
Yes, you can make it… OR… you can find a high-integrity and qualified manufacturer.Read More
