Hello, my name is Mara and my goal is to help others feel better naturally! So many products on the market today contain way too many toxins such as parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances and dyes. Our lifestyle, our diet, and the products we use have a huge impact on how we feel and how we look. It is time to become proactive and pay as much attention to “what we put on our bodies” as well as to “what we put in our bodies”.
My own journey toward wellness began in 1994 when I was diagnosed with RSD / CRPS. (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy / Complex Regional Pain Syndrome ). I was a complete mess back then, struggling to manage my chronic pain. It was in 2005 when I was introduced to the Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine and the other SoQi Natural Health Products. These products had a huge impact on how I felt and greatly improved my quality of life. They continue to help me manage my pain and many other symptoms I suffer from RSD / CRPS. The products made such an improvement in my quality of life that I had to share them with others and that’s when Energy Wellness Products began. Feel free to read my story.
During my journey toward wellness I decided to further pursue my education in natural health. It didn’t take long before I fell in love with herbs and essential oils. The success I was having with my own journey left me wanting to further help others in pain. So, after receiving my CNHP and Certification as an Herbalist, I took my first aromatherapy course! That course continued my journey and my passion to develop the AskMara Aromatherapy Products. I am fascinated with the influence our sense of smell has on our mind and body. The amazing benefits of essential oils and herbs are able to influence how we feel and how we look. It really is true that our Nose Knows! The AskMara logo was created by my niece Andrea and I absolutely love it! I am an animal lover and the logo was designed in remembrance of my journey and my awesome cat Spoose, read about the AskMara Logo.
It’s true my passion began and still is to help others manage their pain and to develop healthy habits. Managing chronic pain is difficult and some days it seems to consume you. I love Essential Oils and herbs because they have wonderful therapeutic properties that can benefit how we feel in a natural way. Aromatherapy allows me to continue my commitment for helping others with these natural products. It is important to remember that no one can change without participating in their own journey toward wellness. I believe in coaching others to help them become the driver of their life and to learn how to “Participate”. If you have any questions, I am happy to be able to share my experience and my education with you because sharing our experiences and our stories is what allows us to continue to help one another. I also offer coaching. If you decide you want some help on or during your journey, let me know, I’d love to help, learn more about Creating Healthy Habits here.
Mara continues https://www.askmara.comto manage her multiple symptoms from her Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD / CRPS) with exercise, eating a healthy diet, taking herbal supplements, using the SOQI Wellness Products and using her own natural aromatherapy products. She remains committed to her goal in “Helping Others to Create Healthy Habits – One Habit at a Time!”
