This whole Affordable Care Act, insurance thing has really got my head spinning. Now, I have a degree in Healthcare Management and have stared the scary thing straight in the face as I studied it in my Health Politics class, and I'm still at a loss. In the mean time, my children and I have been without insurance for years. It would cost our family of six approximately $1000 a month to be insured through my husband's work. If we went on private insurance, any affordable monthly premium would also carry a deductible that's through the roof. Consequently, no insurance. We've paid out of pocket thus far for sick visits, xrays, and broken bones.
So I have to be proactive. I limit my children's intake of sugar. We eat lots of fruits and vegetables (in fact lately I've caught them asking for fruit even though there may be other snacks in the house! Good habits are forming at a young age, and that excites me!) Still there was the hopeless feeling of what to do in the times when my kids just didn't feel well and needed some relief. Being a Christian, I believe in the healing of Jesus too though sometimes we don't see the manifestation of it immediately.
Since being introduced to Pure, Therapeutic Grade essential oils, I feel like I have an answer. I have an answer when my two year old wakes up from a nap with a funny little cough and I know something doesn't sound right. I have an answer when my six year old is complaining about her tummy hurting, I have an answer when the kids need focus during homeschooling. I have an answer when preteen faces begin to show hormone changes.
I have an arsenal to help my family. We pray, apply oils, pray some more. I'm stocked up and ready to use what God has put in the earth to give to my family to help their body function the way it was designed.
Less expensive. More effective "insurance." Doesn't that sound reassuring?
