I have been working on this brand since summer 2018. I want to be a producer and help solve problems for people. I have been fortunate enough to be blessed with contacts and resources that have helped me and my family on our path and I want to help provide answers for others.
The charities that we want to donate to are: The Institute of Functional Medicine and The Pandas Network. We donate 1% of every purchase to these organizations.
The Institute of Functional Medicine is a new approach to medicine. Instead of treating symptoms with a pill, they seek to understand the root cause of the symptom. They no longer want to mask and silence a symptom, when they can learn so much more when they investigate why their body is giving that symptom.
PANDAS stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infection. In simple terms, that means that strep is taking over the body. The body starts to produce antibodies to attack the strep bacteria, but PANDAS cells hide as healthy normal cells, therefore the antibodies start attacking healthy cells. This causes the autoimmune response. The PANDAS Network is the official organization that is researching ways of combating this illness.
I am currently in a year long course called the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy accredited through the Institute of Functional Medicine. It is kind of like an online graduate program where we learn all about total wellness. We learn about sleep and relaxation, exercise and movement, nutrition, stress and meditation, and relationships. I will graduate as a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach in March 2021. I also have my BA of Arts in Communications from the University of Utah.
I also have my 200 hr yoga certification that I have received through training through Settled Life:
The supplements are manufactured at FDA inspected facilities with stringent quality control procedures and documentation systems in place to meet the highest industry standards and certifications in the world. These standards and/or certifications may include: NPA ( Natural Products Association), NSA (National Sanitary Foundation), OTC (Over the Counter Drug GMPs) and the requirements of the FDA Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). We have worked with a lot of different partners to find products that work for our family and our busy, active lifestyle. We want to be able to share those same products with you.
The shorts are ones that I had designed to fit my needs. I wore soccer shorts to yoga, because that is all I have ever owned. Soccer shorts absorb water and perspiration and that was awful in my hot yoga sessions sweating puddles. I wanted a multi-functional short that I could use while practicing yoga, hiking, playing soccer, or running. I love these shorts and I wear them almost every day.
That is a great question. Only time will tell. We have some other products that we want to release but we need to make money before we can invest more. We want to serve you in the best way possible. So we are taking our time in creating good quality content and researching products that could be beneficial. We are all about total wellness. We want to encourage people to live healthier, active lives. Unfortunately, the U.S. is one of the unhealthiest populations in the world. We need to change this.
