So how do you even know where to start there? how do you navigate that process? And I guess you have to really become the student. Then you have to take on, you know, advice from other people. And I guess spent a huge amount of time on research and development with no actual golden ticket guaranteed at the end that you're going to crack something that works.
My Mia’s Skin Relief, Geeta:
Well, at the time Mia was in such a dire condition. I actually didn't know what to do, but I sat in the question.
I knew that there was something that was causing this.
I held the vision of her laughing and smiling in and in amazing health as she should be.
I remember one day I was sitting in a course and I got a tap on the shoulder by my mentor. She introduced me to a lady who was speaking. She's a renowned nutritionist, Cyndi O'Meara. She was talking about gut health and microbiome. It was all new to me and not having a medical background, having an auditing background and asking why, why, why?
Cindy had said was if you're on one course of antibiotics, it takes your gut microbiome two years to get back to its original condition. Now Mia was on antibiotics monthly.
I found that I'm being guided by my intuition, using my auditing tools of getting to the root cause, sitting in that beginner's mind and not concluding with an answer.
I didn't have this path in front of me. I just took one step at a time. And that's all I could do is just take one step at a time.
And in that process where before I was feeling so disempowered, for the first time I was actually feeling in charge and empowered.
So we started this gut healing diet, and that was, we stripped away everything and rebuilt her, her gut lining. So how it was explained to me was that her gut lining had holes in it and the bacteria from antibiotics and gears of antibiotics and toxicity of products that were being put on her body and food that she was eating. Um, so she, she was in a bad way that bacteria was not good.
So we started with having bone broths and broths and fermented foods in the fermented food provided good bacteria.
So we started with soups and broths and then added mushy vegetables and lamb shanks, and really nourishing food for her gut.
I started peel away the chemical products that I was using on her skin, because I discovered as part of my research:
According to the world health organization, a person with eczema is missing that protective skin barrier. So what you put on your skin is getting absorbed into their bloodstream at a much faster rate than it would for you.
So, I actually got the coconuts, made butter, took neem plants, which is an Indian Ayurvedic herb. Added some fresh turmeric. But the beautiful part about it was during this journey, Mia’s smile was back.
Where's the aha moment where you go, I've got it. Something works, it's a tangible product. I'm seeing results. And I'm going to create a skin relief program, an actual product to put out where where's that moment. And then where do you go from there?
