Ta-Da...  Announcing and asking, HOW THE HEALTH ARE YOU?!

That is the name Esse Muskopf, Amanda Jones, and I, Quin Stringham, have given our series of Total Health and Wellness classes with Young Living Essential Oils, here in Carlisle, PA!  We are so excited!  We hope you will be joining us if you are in the area!

If you don't know or haven't heard, Esse Muskopf has just returned to Carlisle from Alabama and before that she was in Springfiled, Virginia, thanks to her hubby Jim who is a Colonel in the US Army!  I had the joy of introducing Esse to Young Living in May of 2005, back when we volunteered and took our training together at Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis of Carlisle.  That was just 7 years ago!  Wow, I can't imagine life without Esse!  She is an amazing friend, business partner, massage therapist and well, I really would have to do just an entire blog post on Esse to truly to her justice.  Let's just say I am so blessed to have her in my life and excited to be teamed up with her for these classes!

Amanda Jones has been in Carlisle for several years now, hailing from Pittsburg.  Although formally trained and licensed as an Estitician, she now works full time as a wife to Lewis and mother to her two cute kids, and she shares Young Living on the side! Amanda was introduced to YL thorugh Dr. Carloline Diller at Cumbervalley Chiropractic and Wellness about a year and seven months ago here in Carlisle and has had an amazing transformation with Young Living, getting her health back and seeing such a change in her family!  You'll want to be sure and hear her story!  I am so blessed to have Amanda a part of my Young Living team!  Young Living has brought me such amazing friends!

So many of my wonderful friends, business associates in the community, and Young Living team members in the area keep saying, Quin, when is your next class?  So often I haven't had classes planned out far enough in advance for people to really plan for them.  Ok, well, I am done with that!  With Esse and Amanda's help, we got serious and here's the plan!  And oh, by the way...

Young Living Convention Review 2012

Young Living Convention 2012 was the best convention yet!  I am totally overwhelmed after the trip to even begin to share what I learned and experienced!  Part of my problem is that I took at 5,000 mile road trip and traveled, visiting friends and family on the way, while there, and on the way back, which was absolutely fantastic!  And absolutely exhausting!  Talk about overstimulation!  Whew!  The best part is this is the first year my husband Shand came with me... both on the convention trip out to Utah and back (he is from Utah so of course we have traveled to Utah together before), and he actually attended convention for the first time and went to the Mona, Utah farm for the first time.  So yahoo... quite an experience!

If you are in Pennsylvania or close by in the area, or just want to travel here, you are cordially invited to attend my YL Convention 2012 Review night.  Of course I was there for six days, if I include the two days of leadership meetings I attended, which I am, and there is no way I can really scratch the surface with what I learned and experienced.  I did bring back all the new products and will be sharing those and be giving some fun prizes away!   I will also be sharing some nuggets from my favorite classes and giving a little insight of some some fun classes to come.  Of course if you are not from the area and would like a teleseminar, let me know.  If there is enough interest, I will do this.  I can't know unless you tell me, so please let me know! 

I took several great break out classes.  As always, it was so very hard to choose! This year they were every day of the convention, and even at the farm!  It was fantastic!  I can't wait to share the information from one of my favorites in August, taught by a YL Diamond Connie McDanel, B.S. and Katherine T. Fuller, M.S.  They published a fantastic book called Healing Homes, Our Social Responsibility.  I will share their information.  Do you have a conventional home with lotions and potions and cleaning products with ingredients you have no idea what they are what they do?  Did you ever consider they may be laden with chemicals causing an unnessary burden on yours and your family's bodies and maybe that is why you now have headaches, allergies and other symptoms you never used to have, including your pets?  Or do you have "green" home, which is step up, where you are using natural healthy alternatives such as baking soda, vinegar and others?  Or did you know you can have a "healing" home, using products that are not only an alternative without chemicals but also can counter the damaging effects and add healing benefits?  This class will take your home and your health a new level in examing what, why and how!  See dates and times below-

Slique Challenge ends in Triumph!

On February 29, 2012, my husband Shand, of almost 35 years of marriage (June 28th), made the committment, and took on the challenge to shed 50 lbs using Young Living's new Slique products.  I have been a product of Young Living's products for 14 years now and I have never been able to motivate my husband to use the products other than an occassional "rub an oil here" kind of a thing!  So after MUCH prayer and talking, and asking God to touch his heart and give me the words to express real concern about Shand's weight and health, Shand agreed.  The program started in January, so Shand was late in getting started.  However, here are the pictures to show how he did!  Ta-da......

So here is Shand's testimonial, as the Slique Challenge came to a close one week ago today!  We worked at the Milton Hershey School last weekend, so I am finally getting to posting here!   There is a $5,000 prize check that may or may not be Shand's at Young Living's convention at the end of this month.  However, in our book, he is the Biggest Winner regardless of everyone else's outcome!

Slique Challenge, May 31, 2012

Shand S, age 64
Today, on the final day of the Slique Challenge, I am feeling very, very good. On my weigh-in this morning, I was down to 279 and I have now lost 54 pounds. That’s the equivalent of eighteen cans of Crisco!

I have moved up from walking a mile and a half a day twelve weeks ago to 7-8 miles a day at the midway point to now 10-12 miles a day as we come up on the end of the Challenge. Most days as time allows, I'm walking 5-6 miles every morning and another 5-6 miles in the evening. My back and my knees are feeling better than they have in years and I have new energy and stamina.

Working in the garden has become a joy again and I’m enjoying life more in general. I can bend over and even kneel for extended periods and it doesn't hurt nearly as much as it used to. As my weight has dropped, I’ve lost a little over four inches off my waist and I’ve started wearing clothes that I haven’t fit in for years. I’ve gained a whole new wardrobe!

I stayed on the Slique regimen throughout the Challenge: NO fast food, potato chips, cookies, chocolate, sugary desserts or soda pop... all my favorite food addictions. It wasn’t easy at first but it kept getting easier as I moved forward. I have enjoyed focusing on healthy foods: green salad, fresh vegetables and fruit, chicken, turkey, fish, spinach omelets and lots of carrot sticks and dehydrated fruit for snacks.

The Young Living Supplements- Slique Essence, Slique Tea, Essentialzyme 4, Balance Complete shakes and NingXia Red have been very helpful. I really like the Balance Complete shakes. Although they taste great when blended with fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries, I’ve come to like the shakes just plain mixed with almond milk or soy milk. Good stuff! Much better than most of the milk shakes that I could get at the fast food drive through window. NingXia Red mixed into the Slique Tea with a little lime juice tastes terrific too.

Exercise was also a major contributor to my weight loss and to my state of well being. Each week, I found that I could walk farther without it hurting quite so much. Ultimately, time available became the limiter of how far I walked, not the pain factor. Now, as I finish up the Slique Challenge today, the real challenge begins—to continue my new life habits and not fall back on my old ways. My goal now as I move forward through the Summer and Fall is to lose another 30-40 pounds by Christmas. And that would be very good! 
---Shand Stringham, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Wow, isn't that amazing?!  I love and appreciate my husband and his willingness to over come something that was so challenging for him, and I get that Shand often felt hopeless and believed that he could not change the destructive path he was on!   He joked about dying and not being around much longer.  Shand is and always has been all about taste and eating!  This was huge for him!  Truly God hears and answers prayers!

With Young Living, there is a lifestyle that address the whole pictures.  Working in the wellness world, that is the big difference... we look at the whole picture.  There is no magic bullet!  But there are amazing things one can do, and I am so grateful for Gary and Mary Young and all the Young Living staff who work hard to bring us amazing top of the line nutritional products and essential oils so that we can change the world... one person at a time.  And for me, this time my client was my husband... the most important person in my world!  THANK YOU YOUNG LIVING!

So are you one of those who can relate to my husband... his years of food addictions that have end road of pain and physical pain?  If you are, what are you going to do about?  And if you are one of those who doesn't have a problem with weight, but you are a sugar-holic... just wait.  That life-style, as much as we think it is funny and do not see a visible problem, just wait!  You will feel it as you come to find out just how destructive a diet of high carbs, sugars, and empty calories can be!   And although my husband Shand has not been on meds except for some otc pain meds, and occasional muscle relaxer, he has been blessed to avoid now that trap, which is huge!   Although I lost my health in my 30's to my sugar addiction, we are both examples of how one can get off the road you are on and go on a different road in a different direction!

Well, what are you waiting for?  If you feel you deserve assistance with where you are at with your health right now, give me a call!    If your health is in need of a make over, if your finances need a change, or you have lost your purpose and would like to find it again, give me a call!  I join with Young Living in their mission statement, "We honor our stewardship to champion nature's living energy -- essential oils - by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to Wellness, Purpose, and Abundance."  For more information on the Slique program, go to

May God bless you abundantly, as he has blessed Shand and me!
