My Health Journey

During these last couple of months, I have been really focusing on my health. I started with signing up for Young Living Oils. Now, before I finish this post...I am not a good sales person. That is my husbands schtick. But, I really want to share my journey with Young Living and with Xyngular, a health program that I have benefited from greatly as well.

Ok...Young Living.

I first tried it just because I had heard great things about oils and their use for sickness. I was seeing them all over facebook and thought I'd try them out. After I signed up, I had success with one of my daughters using them for tummy troubles...but it wasn't until I started using them regularly that I started noticing a major change...

I lost my desire for pop. Completely. About a week after I started ingesting (via capsule) the oils I had scanned for which were basically for digestive issues, weight loss and addictions...I noticed that I no longer desired pop. I had also been drinking ice water with a drop of grapefruit oil and a drop of peppermint. I craved that. NEVER in my life have I craved water.

The oils were doing their thing. Amazing. As I started to read up and take facebook classes, I realized the benefits were countless. I now use them for cleaning, skin care, making the house smell good, for mood regulators, for sickness, and continue to use them for keeping my cravings in check.

Oh yeah, and for loss of inches on my legs. Let me explain. I had learned about this detox program (oils go after toxins in our body) via a facebook YL class a couple of friends put on. I ordered the oils and did it. I lost 2 inches off of each thigh and my skin on my legs has tightened in a major way. A good portion of my cellulite is...gone! (Not all, but a HUGE difference). Now, I have always had that yucky cellulite on my legs...even when I was a regular weight lifter. But what I learned was that fat cells hold on to toxins for decades. When the oils eat the toxins, the cellulite goes away. Here is a link to the info.

Aside from physical benefits, oils have also helped me a lot with mental/emotional issues. A lot of emotions (and addictions) live in our liver. After taking some oils specific for cleaning out the liver, I literally detoxed emotionally. Sounds weird, huh? I had a couple of days where I felt this crazy amount of emotions--anger, anxiety, frustration...(no, it wasn't that time of the month), and then done. Ever since, I have noticed I am way more level emotionally. It is hard to explain, but believe me, I feel much better. It is similar to physical detox...which I experienced early on as well. Headaches, feeling sick, etc. are a sign of detoxing. Oils did that for me very early on, however I did not know it at the time so I did not drink nearly enough water. That is the key for sure to flush them out.

I could go on and on...literally. But instead, I will put the offer out to answer any questions you may have. If you are a facebook friend, private message me. Or shoot me an email at nicmackin@hotmail.com. Or call me, 402-984-2816. I would love to answer any questions you may have!!!

If you are interested in signing up, please let me know! I can do it virtually or over the phone. As a benefit of signing up, I will give you a free (what I call) oily Bible. : ) It is a thick resource where you can get all the info you need...you can look up by oil, by problem/issue, by application. Such a great resource which has a $25 value and I will give that to you for free as a thank you gift.

Now, for my weight management...Xyngular

While Oils helped with my sugar and caffeine addiction, my experience with a health program called Xyngular has been well...awesome.

A close friend had been using the program and was having amazing results. So I went to a party, bit the bullet and purchased the 8 day Ignite Program (which has more product than for 8 days, btw).


Now, a couple things...you have to be committed to making a change. But it was not hard at all. You eat. Alot. And drink LOTS of water. And you notice a difference right away.

I lost 6 pounds in the first 2 days. I discovered I love salmon and asparagus. And that eating good fats is a must (OK!). At the end of the 8 days I had lost 10 lbs. and felt my body shift back to the way it used to be. I felt awesome, the products are so great. They are natural and do things from provide you energy to helping your body burn excess food it doesn't need. My bloat went away within a couple of days.

After the 8 day, I loosely followed the program for a couple weeks. Then went completely off the bandwagon for about a week. Although I still made better choices because I had trained myself to during those 8 days. I kept every pound off. Every one. I am now in day 1 of a new 8 day and will update on progress. I have beginner photos...I will share them when I am to my target weight.

The kicker---I have not worked out. At all. And I want to! I can not wait to see what results I will have once I start incorporating regular exercise!

Now, the thing with Xyngular is that it is kind of pricey. However, if you get 4 people signed up, your product is paid for (if you want to sign people up, you will need to do a monthly autship...you can cancel that but then will have no chance of making any money...up to you!). Getting wholesale prices is a bonus too, but if you just want to try an 8 day, you can just start with the product.

If you are interested in making this lifestyle change (and great timing right before summer!) let me know! I'd be happy to answer questions and get you started.

So...I am still in the journey. I would like to lose about 20 more lbs. And I will keep you all updated. But I wanted to share. I only share if I truly believe in the product. I know there is SO much out there these days. So, I wanted to keep it personal and tell you my story. Thanks for reading.
