At Blooming Mandala our mission is to detox Australia, one family at a time.

As homemakers and caretakers of the modern world’s most precious resource, families, we are passionate about providing accurate, affordable and easily accessible information to those wanting to detox their bodies and green their homes. Blooming Mandala is your online community resource for clean living and was inspired by our own real-life experiences. As mothers, sisters, wives and businesswomen, we have experienced the many natural health benefits that come from following a chemical free (clean and green), low-tox lifestyle.

We are committed to providing quality information on healthy living and supporting everyday Australians to make healthier decisions about how they live.  Blooming Mandala and what we are doing is one small step in a far greater journey. Imagine if, together, we could all encourage just one more person, one more family to also take a small step towards living greener and cleaner ~ what a wonderful, healthy world it would be.

 

BLOOMING MANDALA – flourishing universe, full of life

We are intrinsically connected with the universe, we are reliant on this planet to sustain our very existence.  This is why we must unite as one to clean, nourish and protect the world we live within and all the beings we share it with.  When we do, the whole universe will prosper.  You cannot have the parts without the whole.  This is at the core of all we do and believe.

HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH?

Mother. Wife. Sister. Daughter. Blooming Mandala Co-Founder

In 1998 I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis and quickly learned conventional pain medication and treatments, including hormone therapy, were not going to provide real relief and in fact, only seemed to worsen my condition. It was after my fourth surgery, I decided there must be a better way and so began a long journey into the world of alternative treatment options and therapies for endometriosis. After 15 years of experimenting with a range of natural remedies, diets, and physical and mental activities aimed at managing pain, I discovered something amazing.

The single most important thing I could do was to detox my life; not just my diet, but my entire home environment. Armed with a wealth of information and personal experiences, and knowing what I was up against, I now enjoy a relatively pain-free life, without conventional medical intervention. I even managed to have two children in my mid and late thirties after being told not to wait until after I was 30 because the chance of success would be severely limited.

In 2000 I, like my sister Jenny years before me, was diagnosed with the crippling pain of endometriosis. While not as severe as Jenny’s condition, I underwent my first operation at just 16 years of age and then again one year later. This ‘life interrupting pain’ became my monthly norm. It wasn’t until 2005 when I gave birth to my first child Connor, that the excruciating symptoms began to subside. I went on to have a further two children and you could say, unlike Jenny, was one of the lucky ones. While having children certainly helped to ease many of my symptoms, it wasn’t until I began improving my overall wellness that they disappeared altogether. That was many years later and after conducting extensive research into the different chemicals being used to manufacture common household products and then trying to understand how their actions and reactions, when combined with other chemicals, could have significant and negative effects on our health.

I’m living proof that you don’t have to be a total tree hugging hippie to want to do things better and make better choices for your family (Although I love the hippies!!). I’m a former drag racer who raced a motorbike at the Perth Motorplex every chance I got. My personal best was 8.90 seconds at 144MPH (232 kph) over the ¼ mile. Needless to say I was all about adrenaline and acceleration, I never took life too seriously, it was about having fun and living in the moment.

Whilst I touched on alternative medicines with Connor, I didn’t realise the correlation between household and beauty products and overall health at this time. My journey into healthy living really only came to the forefront when I fell pregnant for the second and third time.
