While it’s fun to get together with family and friends, the Holidays can make even the most organized person work overtime to get everything accomplished. Last week a friend reminded me about Sprayology, the homeopathic, or all natural, products she’s used for a longtime. One helps her deal with stress; another helps her sleep without waking up groggy like she’s taken prescription sleeping pills.
Homeopathic medicine has been around for hundreds of years. Homeopathy is based on the premise that some natural substances can stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms. Since I use guided imagery and hypnosis, the concept makes total sense to me.
WHEN WE’RE LIVING OUR LIVES LIKE WE’RE IN A MINI CAR ACCIDENT ALL THE TIME, OUR ADRENALS GET FATIGUED BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ANY DOWN TIME. THE HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH REMINDS THEM THEY’RE UNDER STRESS AND THEY NEED TO HEAL.
There are so many different brands on the market, however, I haven’t known where to start to evaluate them. After reading about Sprayology’s products online, I wanted to know more, so I called Founder and CEO, Ellie Whalen.
Ellie Whalen’s experience with homeopathic products changed her life in ways she couldn’t imagine. Ellie used to work hard and play hard… until she got sick.
“I was a severe asthmatic,” said Ellie. “I was the puffer girl. I was never without an inhaler; was always on allergy medicine and always exhausted. At the time, I’d been one of the first Swatch watch salespeople in the United States, then became National Sales Manager for the Department Store Jewelry division of Christian Dior. For my own health, I started using natural products and homeopathy, but you can spend a lot of money and not know what works or have any guarantee about what’s in them.”
Fourteen years ago, Ellie decided to take control of her health. She left a secure job and started Sprayology. “I wanted a better way to be healthy. I’ve been without an inhaler now for almost ten years. I still go to a doctor, but now I listen to my body and do preventative self care. Symptoms are there to give us clues.”
“Twenty-three of our products are FDA regulated and two of them are supplements. Some of our products are for easy fixes to prevent a hangover or stop allergies, but some of our products, like our Life Detoxer and Body Balance, are game changers. We’ve heard that from our customers over the years.
“The Body Balance is for adrenal exhaustion. When we’re living our lives like we’re in a mini car accident all the time, our adrenals get fatigued because we don’t have any down time. The homeopathic approach reminds them they’re under stress and they need to heal.
“I’ve been doing wellness events with women who’re burning the candle at both ends. Some have a loss of well being, fatigue, skin dryness, even a little dizziness. They want to feel better but don’t know what to do. They like the idea of all natural products that work, but they don’t want ones that taste bad and come in brown bottles with eyedroppers. Sprayology is safe, and it works into your life. You can pull it out and use it anywhere, and it’s pretty. We guarantee all of our products. We rarely get returns, and we extend that offer to our brick and mortar partners.”
Ellie pointed out that it’s female consumers who’ve moved the needle toward safer products. Women have changed what they eat and what they clean their houses with, but when they, or their kids get a cold, they give them strong over-the-counter medicine and often send them to school. She’s got a point.
What if we start practicing preventative self care in the most fundamental ways possible? In addition to exercise, meditation and eating pesticide and hormone free food, what if we do something as simple as a daily natural and safe option to restore, rejuvenate and stay healthy?
