I want to introduce you to our other two Senior Apprentice coaches in Northern Cali, Amy in Sacramento and Jamila in Sepastopol. We are taking a few more apprentice coaches in the Northern half of the state, so check the opportunity out HERE. When our apprentice coaches earn the rank of Senior Apprentice, they are able to offer their classes through the GreenSmoothieGirl site and we promote them in my national and regional newsletters. (Applicants in other areas are welcomed, too.)
AMY SELLERS’ story is amazing, as she is matriarch of a big, beautiful family. When her 10th baby arrived, with a “bonus chromosome” in every one of his billions of cells, Amy and her husband learned all they could about Down Syndrome and how to help Tanner develop optimally in his formative years, to have good quality of life. They learned how frankincense essential oil has been valued since Biblical times for protection and healing, and they applied a drop to his brain stem as part of a regimen Amy calls her “secret weapon” in helping Tanner grow and develop. He is a much-loved 5th grader who loves riding his bike and swimming, and he has strong speech skills. Recently Amy’s adult daughter was watching Tanner multiply and carry numbers and became tearful, as it is such a miracle and a blessing to their family that he’s so healthy.
Amy credits essential oils with controlling her cravings and helping her lose 30 lbs and ditch size 14 pants for size 8, just since December! She’s enjoying her husband’s daily compliments and ditching what she told me are “six five-pound bags of sugar” that have helped her “feel free to move about the planet!”
Amy has led our efforts in Sacramento this past year and loves to share our message—we are so proud of her! Contact her at email@example.com.
JAMILA REMINGTON was diagnosed with serious allergies and given hundreds of injections as she was growing up. She was constantly sick and on antibiotics, and her parents were smokers. They ate the Standard American Diet rich in Grama’s baked goods. She was an athlete and dancer, but as a teen, she knew she was unwell from all the drugs: her belly was bloated, her skin constantly itched, and she had stomach aches and muscle cramps, fatigue, and constant fevers, headaches, swollen glands and various infections.
A car accident, and some terrible health challenges related to living in an apartment full of mold, brought Jamila to her knees. She learned more about healing and wellness and nutrition, and dug her way out of depression and an immune system as compromised, her physician told her, as a person’s who is dying of cancer.
When Jamila’s three-year old daughter was run over by a pickup truck during a parade, road grease was ground into 40 percent of her skin surface. Her leg swelled up and she had tire marks across her pelvis. For six weeks, Jamila lathered her abrasions with a salve with peppermint oil. Every day she would remove bandages and put her in the warm bath where dead skin full of road grease would float off.
Jamila saw a flier about a GSG lecture at a Whole Foods Market salad bar next to my book The Green Smoothies Diet. Jamila discovered my Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie and the whole office she worked in loved it. “So began my love affair with the Green Smoothie Girl,” she said. She discovered and loved the 12 Steps to Whole Foods program, which she found to be a compendium of all the best information in whole-foods nutrition practices, and applied as an apprentice coach when the opportunity arose.
When Jamila’s daughter got whooping-cough, the whole family began to have symptoms. She had them take On Guard in honey, Oregano “flu bombs,” Purify oil blend in the diffuser, and Lemon or Peppermint in water. Jamila’s 17-yo son said, “Mom, this is the best stuff you have ever given us out of all the millions of remedies we grew up with! My sore throat and head ache are completely gone.” Jamila told me, “I agree with my son and that is why I am passionate about sharing essential oils with everyone in my life.”
Jamila is from Sepastopol, CA, in the North Bay Area. She supports and helps people as an intuitive healer, people she finds in crisis everywhere she goes. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
