Hello and a big, warm welcome to Green Leaf Organics!
I am a 25 year old aspiring Occupational Therapist that has a passion for all things organic! Whether we are discussing fruits & veggies, make-up products, skin care, or health products, I hope to share my passion about it all!
I made the transition towards going organic when I was 19 years old, after my father was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After many tears and long discussions with various oncologist’s, my family and I decided to take the healthiest approach to my father’s battle.
Eating healthy had always been a part of my families natural eating habits however, it was news to us how detrimental non-organic food could be on an individuals body, especially one that is ill. Of course, he still had to endure the traditional medical treatments, but with the addition of organic, wholesome foods, an extremely heartbreaking situation had the potential to make a turn for the better. Doctor’s are convinced they had never seen so much success occur in direct correlation with a diet & lifestyle change. 6 years later, my father is successfully in remission, & I thank god every day that my family & made this change together.
With this blog, I hope to bring attention to the many reasons why an individual may choose to go organic. I want to be there from start to finish; whether you are in the beginning stages of research, or have been organic for years. I hope to add a new dynamic of information into your lifestyle.
