Over the past year Naturiffic has brought me places I never would have thought of and continues to evolve into the vision I have had for it all along;
A company providing products that are free from additives and chemicals that everyone can feel good using.
What started as a really bad tummy ache over 3 years ago has become an avenue for me to share my successes in finding ways to feel good.
As we continue to evolve, it is important that we keep a focus on why and how this business came to be. To help maintain that focus, I have split the Naturiffic website into the three main focus points that matter to me.
This is where it all started and where we return to today.
In 2013 I had multiple visits & stays in the hospital with stomach cramps so severe I couldn't stand it. After dozens of procedures and hundreds of vials of blood (lab tests), there was still not a definitive diagnosis.
Crohns, Celiac, IBS, Auto-immune, Fibromyalgia were among the disorders that one Doctor would come up with, only to have the next Doctor disprove it.
At wits end, I finally came across a gastroenterologist that gave me the direction I needed.
His suggestion was that I start a food journal to see if there was any correlation between the foods I consumed and the way I felt.
After 6 months of writing down everything single thing I ate...and then how I felt 30 minutes later (or even 2 days later), I started to notice correlations, I added those foods to a Risk List, as I started eliminating foods on the Risk List, I began to feel better and better.
Naturiffic products in the EAT category are products that we manufacture in-house that meet the criteria of:
- Non-processed or minimumly processed. All natural ingredients
- Clean food (simple ingredients and as few as possible)
- Personal experience using
Our first product in this category was just launched:
We hope to add more products to this category soon.
One of the "foods" that ended up on the Risk List" was coffee.
It seemed every time I would drink it..I would get reactions, both belly (potty) reactions and skin reactions, so I went looking for a replacement.
I found that replacement in herbal tea. As a bonus, I discovered that when I had tea with Ginger included in it, my tummy aches would start to settle down.
From that I started sourcing the best whole leaf herbal tea I could find and blending it with Ginger and other herbs.
That is how the Naturiffic Tea blends originated. our current offerings include:
- Tummy Tamer Tea (with Ginger)
- Anytime Tea (this used to be called Achy Bones for the tea properties, but everyone enjoyed it so much we renamed it Anytime
- Sniffles Tea
- Sweet Dreams Tea
- A Girl's Friend

Part of my recovery was indulging myself in Epsom Salt baths when I was in pain. Through this I discovered that if I added certain essential oils to my bath, I would see immediate benefits. (Ginger would help with tummy aches, Rosemary and Frankenscense would help with the pain caused by inflammation)
In fact at the time I was plagued by reoccurring migrane headaches and found when I rubbed peppermint oil on my temples, my migrane would subside somewhat.
So please continue to EAT. DRINK. LIVE. NATURALLY.
