What is your professional field of wellness?     

Live Blood Cell Microscopy (also known as live blood cell analysis)

What got you into this field?                                                                              I first became interested in this area of work because it had such a profound effect on my own life. My family has battled both heart disease and brain tumors, and I personally was diagnosed with a “genetic” heart disease when I was 16 years old. When I had my first live blood cell screening done, I was blown away because I was finally getting to the root of my heart disease. I was used to only hearing about the symptoms of my disease and all the things I needed to avoid (such as exercise and all sporting activities). Having a live blood cell screening totally changed the game for me! I finally learned what was REALLY going on in my body. This empowered me more than you can imagine and has given me the resources and motivation to take control of my health and to really love my body again. My passion is to give other people the same experience I had – an opportunity to get a glimpse at what is really going on inside their body and to gain real resources and knowledge to help them feel comfortable and confident about their health (and their body) again!

How does your work impact the community?                                               Having a live blood cell screening is a unique way of gathering information about what is REALLY going on inside the body. Live blood cell screenings provide people with an option for early warning detection and prevention. A live blood cell screening allows my clients to look at their own blood under a microscope (magnified 1,000 times) to see the quality of their red and white blood cells. The quality of our red and white blood cells tells us a lot about the quality of our overall health. When we have a better understanding of our health at the cellular level, we also have a much better understanding of our overall health. More details about live blood cell screenings can be found on my website!

Why do you love Rainbow Blossom?      

Rainbow Blossom is doing amazing work to bring better healthcare to our community. I love how active and engaged Rainbow Blossom is in our community. From providing the best health foods and supplements to partnering with many different practitioners in the area to hosting cooking and exercise classes, Rainbow Blossom is doing everything they can to provide more options and better health education to southern Indiana and Louisville. Since the time I started Cell Harmony, my goal has been to provide good quality information to my clients. I believe that Rainbow Blossom has a similar motive - to educate the community around them and to provide valuable resources for better overall health and well being!

This Wednesday, Elizabeth will be set up at our Wellness Center from 10am-12pm to discuss Live Blood Cell Microscopy. If you have any questions about this, come on in and she will be there to help you. She will be offering live blood cell screenings (where she analyzes blood under a microscope) and will have a Rife Machine, which is used as a "detox" treatment.

What is your professional field of wellness?                                                                              Birth Doula CD(DONA) with a side of certified (longtime) yoga teacher RYT200, certified holistic wellness coach through IIN and trained in essential oil use specific for prenatal/postnatal use through Aromas for Healing

What got you into this field?                                                                                                      First, by a yoga student asking me to be with her at her birth. Fought the idea, then finally agreed, started the training, attended her birth, LOVED IT and hit the ground running. You can read about that whole story on my website.

How does your work impact the community?                                                                   Becoming a mother is a life altering experience. If it can be done lovingly and holistically it can really impact the way a woman begins her journey into motherhood. Beginning motherhood feeling supported, empowered and in tune with the power of her own body can help mama take on the new role with strength, thus familiarizing the kiddo with a sense of strong community, courage and esteem. It can all start at the moment of birth. Empowered women are the backbone of society, we all know that!

Why do you love Rainbow Blossom?                                                                                       When I was a teenager and would come to "the city" Rainbow Blossom was always my first stop. It was cozy and smelled good and really opened up my small town brain to the world of "natural." Now I take my kids there for after school dates, if they're sick or for post swim treats, etc. The idea that my kids get that same cozy feeling and get to see people caring about their health while we're in there is priceless for me. Generations of community all under one roof. 

This Wednesday, Lindsay will be set up at our Wellness Center from 10am-12pm to discuss her work as a doula. If you have any questions about doula work, come on in and she will be ther to help you. Lindsay is also a quilter, yoga instructor, urban farmer, and more! Join us to talk about any of those things at Wellness Wednesday, June 14th.
