I am Sarah Spaulding. I have been on a mission since January 2011 to clean my diet, my fitness routine, my beauty regimen and my everyday life. If you are also tired of being exposed to hundreds of chemicals everyday, I would love to give you some safe and natural recommendations for alternatives to your everyday needs. I’m so excited to turn my journey into a guide for those who are looking for the same kind of change.
After my dad died of Leukemia in November 2010, I promised to start taking better care of myself. I quit smoking and began exercising, avoiding processed foods, eliminating carcinogenic chemicals from my cleaning and beauty routines, and trying natural remedies for my ailments rather than relying so heavily on pharmaceuticals. My efforts brought me to work at Mustard Seed Market & Café, the largest locally-owned retailer of natural and organic products in Ohio. My work day was helping customers find fresh and nutritious foods, supplements and natural solutions to their everyday needs. Most of my nights were spent cooking, creating my own products and learning more about how to make my life as pure as possible.
Needless to say, this has become my passion. In the process, I lost 30 pounds and gained so much energy. I rarely get sick anymore and, when I do, it seems to be way less severe than ever before. I am still constantly looking for solutions in my battle with eczema, but I have made great progress and want to share my passion and success!
I chose the name Peach & Plum Wellness for two reasons:
1) Peach and plum are both synonyms for beauty. (As in, “What a peach!” I really love that phrase.)
2) Peach and plum polyphenols have proven effective in the treatment of breast cancer, killing cancerous cells and leaving healthy cells intact! This is a huge step for natural medicine that I think should be celebrated.
With that in mind, you can expect to learn about natural remedies, special diets, immune support, natural beauty tips, clean eating recipes and more. I envision Peach & Plum Wellness developing into a whole living brand. I can’t wait to share this journey with you!
