It's Your Journey
Live It Naturally Well
The Emotional Eating Season
We eat more of our calories during November and December
than we do in all the other months combined!
Simply astounding to think about isn't it?
It is not just that we will soon be surrounded by all this delectable special food
but how that food makes us feel.
Food, specifically holiday food, invokes some of our most deepest feelings.
I often think of the holidays as the emotional eating season
because whether it is family traditions, trauma, boredom, stress, awkwardness, or just fear of offending the host, we will all likely encounter at least one time during the holidays where we emotionally eat or drink something.
Food is tied to our emotional system, this is especially true of sweets.
By ignoring our emotions with just focusing on restrictive eating & dieting
we prevent our body from thriving and achieving true health.
Food is more than a physical element needed to live.
It is our very connection to others and ourself.
We can understand a lot about ourself by what we eat and when.
This is why creating that balance between our mind-body-spirit becomes essential to holiday eating and long term health, including managing our weight.
Entering the holiday season grounded in alignment with yourself creates empowerment to nourish your mind-body-spirit that can deepen the experience of the season
and expand joy.
Most importantly, it allows us to shift away from the guilt of eating
to a heightened awareness of our relationship with ourselves, others and food.
This promotes healing and health that can improve our enjoyment of the season
and what we find ourselves eating or drinking.
January becomes one of welcoming change
rather than punishment and deprivation for "over-doing it during the holidays."

Hello! Nice to Meet You
Hi, my name is Amy and I'm a mom, wife, employee, business owner and woman who was overwhelmed with her life. I kept wishing things would get easier, simpler & less stressful but each day I'd wake up to the same stress, chaos and to-do list over and over again. It started to impact my health as well, making even easy things seem like a burden. There had to be a better way and just wishing for it to change didn't seem to be making it happen.
I started writing a blog about how it was impacting my health, relationships & life while describing my struggle with how to make things better. It was then I discovered the solution was as simple as changing how we did basic every day things & what it truly means to live more naturally & simply in today's modern world. I followed this up with formal education to practice holistic health and provide natural support to my own family and now you too!
What emerged completely changed the course of my family's life, created Dragonspit Apothecary & instilled a love of pure nature to help us feel our best every day.
The mission of Dragonspit Apothecary is to share what I have learned to help you explore what is possible in your own life by providing reliable guidance & support in creating the ideal life you desire through your health & lifestyle.
