Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

On the podcast this week is Dr. Mariza Snyder - a functional practitioner and the author of seven books: the bestselling The Smart Mom’s Guide to Essential Oils and The DASH Diet Cookbook. Dr. Mariza’s newest book focuses on balancing hormones with the power of essential oils, it’s called: The Essential Oils Hormone Solution.

In her new book, Dr. Mariza focuses on balancing hormones with the power of nutrition, self-care, and essential oils - and as a total novice in the world of essential oils (but so interested in learning more!) I was really excited to sit down and have this conversation with her.

In this week’s new episode Dr. Mariza shares her healing journey of emerging from hormone chaos, where her journey with essential oils began, and the role they’ve played in her health and wellness journey. We chat about root cause medicine, why it’s important, Dr. Mariza’s top tips to get to the root cause of our symptoms, and recognizing that we are worthy of our own healing. Essential oils - where to start, Dr. Mariza’s go-to blends, how to use essential oils to help balance your emotions, heal any ailments, and the science behind essential oils (Dr. Mariza’s knowledge is NEXT LEVEL!) Plus, Dr. Mariza shares her joy list, how she connects to that feeling of joy, her go-to mantras, and so much more!

It was so much fun to have this conversation with Dr. Mariza, and can’t wait to hear what you think! Make sure to join the conversation on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Essential oils are a tool to leverage your own ease and grace. I just think that we deserve wins on this journey. We deserve wins during the day, and so often those wins are connected to how we feel emotionally, and that’s where I think essential oils come into play so beautifully. Essential oils changed my life, they changed my life because they gave me a better tool to manage stress and to set myself up for success in those moments.
— Dr. Mariza Snyder

Essential oils have played such a huge role in Dr. Mariza’s journey, and through her work she’s helping women everywhere who are ready to achieve vitality and health with the help of essential oils.

Where did her journey with essential oils begin?

Eleven years ago, Dr. Mariza was chronically sick, feeling wired and tired, and experiencing a sensation of constant overwhelm from the combination of both work and going to graduate school to become a practitioner. She never seemed to have enough energy to get through the day. She was juggling too many responsibilities and suffering from some major consequences. One day, she looked up and didn’t recognize the tired stranger in the mirror - she didn’t feel like herself anymore.

Like many women we all know, Dr. Mariza was being held captive by crazy unbalanced hormones and overwhelmed with life. She came from a lineage of hormone imbalance and grew up watching her mom suffer from mood swings, lack of energy, and sleepless nights. During her mid-twenties, she was chronically tired, 35-pounds overweight, constantly cranky, and oftentimes feeling super unsexy. She felt like she had lost control of her body while doing all of the things that she thought were “right” for her at the time. Caffeine became the key to surviving each day.

As Dr. Mariza shares in this week’s new episode, she realized that she needed to change her lifestyle if she wanted to feel like her old self again.

So what did she do?

She started with simple changes - food, lifestyle, and her perspectiveShe began eating more plants and cooking at home. Leafy green vegetables became a staple in her diet, and green smoothies provided a simple daily habit that produced the necessary energy to start her day without caffeine. Then, she focused on yoga, dance, and fun exercises that she actually enjoyed. Her stress level decreased and her energy increased, the excess weight started to melt off, and she began to feel like herself again. Over time, she explored more healthy habits: positive journaling, hiking on nice days, and using essentials oils and whole food supplements to keep her and her family healthy.

Dr. Mariza reclaimed her life and her body! On her journey, she learned that 80% of what we do on a daily basis dictates the life that we live later. In her 10 years educating on healthy lifestyle habits, she’s helped thousands of women to lose weight, sleep better, lower cortisol levels, and reclaim their lost energy. She’s seen women transform both emotionally and physically.

I haven’t met a woman that hasn’t struggled with hormones to some degree, mainly because hormones control everything in the body. Literally everything! They’re chemical messengers that mediate the way we adapt to the environment. So they’re constantly changing and shifting based on what we’re doing in the world. It’s no surprise at all that we’re having an impact just by doing us every single day!
— Dr. Mariza Snyder

How can we help shift our emotional state with essential oils?

For Dr. Mariza, it all starts with awareness and the willingness to shift what’s happening beneath the surface.

Dr. Mariza is an avid lover of essential oils, and she’s found them to be incredibly effective in helping with everyday mood-boosting, restful sleep, digestive support, and cleansing, just to name a few. In some ways, they were the missing link for her in enhancing her overall well-being.  

In The Essential Oils Hormone Solution, Dr. Mariza shows you how to heal hormonal chaos and revitalize the body from the inside out with the support of high-quality essential oils. You’ll learn how essential oils work on a cellular level to mitigate the toxic loads we carry, and how to use essential oils to reduce cravings, get deep, restful sleep, ease stress, improve mood, banish the worst symptoms of PMS, regain focus and concentration, boost libido, and increase energy.

Featuring a 14-day plan to jumpstart your hormonal health, with over 100 essential oil blends, daily self-care rituals, and delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes, you’ll discover how to reset your body and pave the way for improved hormonal health, without taking hormones.

Dr. Mariza’s goal is to help you to become a healer in your own life through self-directed plant-based nutrition and medicine. Her solutions range from recipes to detoxes, essential oils and supplements, to lifestyle habits that you can engage in without disrupting your busy life - and she’s shared all of this and more in her books, on her website, and in her podcast.

Once the book came out I knew it was a story I needed to share, and I started sharing wholeheartedly. We’re going to continue to have these healing journeys, and you’re always going to be gut checking that mindset, worthiness, and how you take care of yourself.
— Dr. Mariza Snyder

For the past ten years, Dr. Mariza has lectured at wellness centers, conferences, and corporations on hormone health, essential oils, nutrition, and detoxification. She has been featured on Dr. Oz, Oprah Magazine, Fox News Health, MindBodyGreen and many publications, and I’m just so excited to have her on Seek The Joy. She’s also the host of the popular Essentially You Podcast, designed to empower women to become the CEO of their health.
