Lois Walters – Health and Wellness Counselor
Growing up on a farm in rural Minnesota, my family gardened, lived off the land and I spent a fair amount of time roaming and exploring in our woods. I took for granted that the foods we grew and purchased were healthy. Little did I know that one day “eating organically” would be actually be an effort as our food supply has altered so much over the years.
My early lifestyle gave me a solid basis for what I teach today – that nature has health solutions that cannot be replicated with some of the modern day medicines, synthetics and procedures that make up our current healthcare system.
Fortunately, education was an important part of my upbringing, too. I earned an education degree and ultimately became a teacher like my mom. After a few years of teaching high school English, I left my formal teaching career to raise our five children.
In the mid-1980’s, my husband and I had the opportunity to purchase Gunnar Electric, the electrical contracting company where my husband, Woody, worked. It was an extensive learning experience for me to excel at the skills needed to be an effective president of our electrical contracting company.
Fast forward to the summer of 2011. I was introduced to doTERRA International’s essential oils. I had a couple life changing essential oil “experiences” with the oils soon after I purchased some (as in going from laid out flat with a nasty bug to being fully functional in a Board meeting within hours).
I quickly became passionate to learn more about essential oils and discovered that doTERRA(s) Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® of essential oils and related products have never disappointed. In addition to phenomenal products, the company is founded on financially sound business principles (the company is debt-free), exquisite focus on global plant sourcing, and is the largest essential oil company in the world.
I knew I had found my calling…it was time for me to get back to teaching!
Today, Gunnar Electric is still family owned and operated – it’s now run by two of our children. I am now teaching that healthcare is a self-responsibility. Using essential oils is an easy, safe, effective and affordable option for families to supplement or proactively deter the need of traditional medicine – which in many cases masks a symptom vs. getting to the root cause of a health concern.
Currently, as a Silver Wellness Advocate with doTERRA®, I work with an extensive team of Wholesale Customers and Wellness Advocates who use, share and many prosper financially from using these special oils.
I invite you to work with me as a learner, user, sharer or builder – experiencing these beautiful, more-pure-than-organic “gifts of the earth”.
