Hello to all my new readers!!
For starters, I want to begin with telling you all how honored and excited I am to be starting this blog and sharing it with all of you!! Two months ago the idea of writing a health blog was just a dream of mine, and now thanks to my amazing new boss this dream is now becoming a reality! Before we really start delving into the juicy stuff I want to share with you all a little background on myself, my journey in finding Sei Mee Tea and gaining the opportunity to write this blog for you all!
For those of you who don’t already know, my name is Kenzie. I am a 27-year-old born, raised and still living here Oregonian with a deep passion for natural living, holistic health, and plant medicine. I currently reside in North Eastern Oregon, but my roots are deep in the Cascades of Central Oregon. I love the outdoors and connecting with Mother Earth. My passion for holistic health and herbalism started at a fairly young age, and I give much credit to a group of ladies who I tend to refer to as my “hippie mamas”.
My story with this group of ladies started when I was 15 years old and began working at the local preschool in my hometown. This preschool was run by these ladies who instantly took me under their wings and taught me everything they knew about working with kids. These ladies also instilled in me their passion for living natural toxin free lives (as much as possible). It started with a few of them teaching me about making my own homemade body products and cleaning supplies. Through this, I discovered the medicinal power of essential oils and herbs, which over the years finally inspired me to go back to school and become certified in Holistic Health.
I just recently finished an 18-month online certification as a Holistic Health Coach with an emphasis on western herbalism through the American College of Healthcare Sciences, located in Portland Oregon. Through this certification, I realized quickly that it was not just my passion to make herbal body products, but to spread the knowledge of living a HOLISTICALLY healthy life. I now have extensive knowledge in nutrition and diet, detoxing, stress management, juicing and fasting, aromatherapy, and herbalism!
As I was nearing the end of my schooling this summer I was racking my brain on what direction I wanted to go with this certification. There are so many aspects of holistic health and healing, it was a bit overwhelming for a while, but I released all my worries to the Universe and I quickly found Kiyomi and Sei Mee Tea. As I sit here writing this first blog post all the puzzle pieces are starting to fall into place for me.
In the last two months of my schooling, a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer as well as my great Aunt. In addition to that one of my “hippie mamas,” I was speaking of earlier passed away from breast cancer. Sad, distracted and confused I was too preoccupied to realize that the universe was giving me all the answers I was looking for. Now that I have found Sei Mee Tea, and have joined their mission in naturally preventing and healing cancer and other chronic diseases, I now realize that this has been my mission all along!
I cannot tell you all how excited I am to be a new member of the Sei Mee Tea family and start sharing my knowledge and passion for holistic health with all of you!
Stay tuned for information on how YOU can start living holistically and begin your journey of holistic health with the use of Sei Mee Tea products, other plant medicines, and simple lifestyle modifications.
