I was the kid at the camp lunch table who could be heard saying, “Is anyone going to eat those stringed beans?” (…meaning the entire bowl!) I loved eating clean food. I was also the kid who climbed up on my dad’s workshop stool to reach for his needle-nose pliers so I could use it to meticulously navigate and then remove the dried up “gunk” from the Elmer’s Glue orange nozzle. I had a knack for clearing out clogged up spaces! In grade school, I remember loving the fragrance of “Love’s Baby Soft” as it would float through the air when classmate Kim Vileno walked by on any given day. I had a nose for scents! This introspection validates my belief that we all have moments in our childhood that point to the professional path we may take later on in life.
I am vegan.
I am a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist.
I teach and empower others how to use Essential Oils for daily living. Ka-Pow!
My childhood was truly awesome! I grew up with a super-cool brother and awesome parents who have been married for over fifty years. But in light of the fact that my dad could easily have been a stand-up comedian, he started suffering with severe manic depression in his 40’s. He suffered for decades while trying a variety of options that didn’t hold water and his quality of life and career were severely impacted. The nurturer in me wanted to discover a better solution.
My professional career started out in advertising but a chance colon hydrotherapy treatment in my early twenties helped place my health back in my own hands and changed my career path forever! Colon Hydrotherapy provided me with many personal game-changing health transformations and right before I turned thirty, an opportunity to change my profession and share the benefits of this work with others fell in my lap. Colon hydrotherapy had liberated me from infirmity and chronic health conditions (ear, nose, throat infections, poor complexion, allergic reactions, weight management, herniated disc, etc.) so I was compelled to share with others how easy it was to reclaim THEIR health and liberate themselves from illness naturally, too!
Over the years, I used Essential Oils (solely for the scent) but once I took a certification course in 2015, the science behind the scent completely revolutionized my knowledge of them and has truly benefitted my practice. Now that I have implemented doTERRA Essential Oils to my personal life and with my clients at The Springs, I can honestly say that the thought of working without them feels like I’d be wearing handcuffs!
Personally, I will share that I had three adverse life-changing experiences occur one right after the other: 1. I closed my NYC practice of seven years and separated from my business partner in doing so. 2. My husband, who I was with for fourteen years and I decided to end our marriage (amicably but still…) 3. I decided to move from New York (where I lived my entire life) to LA and begin a new life and take on a role at a brand new business. My physical health was in tact but emotionally, you can guess, I needed some radical support! Essential Oils rescued and comforted me through the most challenging times of my life; they allowed me to remain competent in the face of adversity while I trained new therapists and helped birth a division of a new company! For the sake of brevity and intrigue, come to a FREE class to learn more about how they work in this way! Or stay tuned to Brandi’s blog for our future classes and specifically the one we will offer on Emotions and Essential Oils!
As a health practitioner, my approach with my clients is “the guru is you.” My goal is to provide them with safe, effective, affordable, and easy-to-use tools that they can implement in their everyday lives – in the absence of harmful side effects. Working with essential oils allows me to do exactly that – share powerful and beautifully aromatic plant-based medicinals that they can resort to outside of their colon hydrotherapy sessions when unexpected issues may pop-up! These oils provide results - whether we are trouble-shooting a physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional issue – there’s an oil for that!
Beyond the importance of purity of the oils, much like I am sure many of you have some personal non-negotiables, I love knowing that the companies I align myself with are passionate about their mission, uphold a strong ethical code, and seek to extend their impact beyond just their product or brand to impact the globe. I found two! The Springs and doTERRA! doTERRA’s heart-centered mission to “Place a Healer In Every Home” is the reason why I now teach ongoing classes here (and around the world) …to help empower others and build our community. Learning how to use these pure plant extracts is revolutionizing the way we mange self care. For many, the oils have even created residual income, which helps lift them and their families out of financial dept so they can be luminaries and help inspire others to do the same. Their unique Co-Impact Farming model nurtures century old botanical traditions and creates sustainability of newly developing nations, allowing them to use their own natural resources to life themselves out of poverty. Their humanitarian organization, Healing Hands Foundation, gives 100% of it’s contributions to build birthing centers, schools, water lines, hospitals, and even educate and dispel stigma around young girls menstrual cycles so they can stay in school and graduate to go on and lead more productive lives and live out their dreams! When we use these oils, we are all contributing to these bounties! I love making a difference!
I feel so lucky to be able to share these gifts from the earth with those I may come into contact with on a daily basis (ok, yeah, maybe Uber driver’s love me). They are a joy to share with my clients – some of whom have found me that reside in other countries that I’ve never even traveled to! The oils are a new and powerful modality for me that I love to teach to others so they can transform on all levels, too! When all of our bodily systems are nourished equally, joy, freedom, and bliss will always be ours to share – drop by precious drop!
