Here is a list of some of my favorite and most-read posts over the past ten years. Here’s why I love Essential Oils. Don’t miss the Featured Storytellers. Sometimes I make a magazine, LP Creative Humans Magazine, and design jewelry at Dandygoods. Sometimes I make podcasts and vlogs.

Introducing Heal Something Good Wellness Retreats!

Heal Something Good Wellness Retreat Leah Peterson

We’ll be having our inaugural HSG Wellness Retreat in October 8-11, 2014 in Lake Tahoe, CA. We’ve got just a few slots for this first one, so if you’re interested in getting more details, let me know.

Heal Something Good Leah PetersonMy new book, Heal Something Good, is out! You can find out more here. This book is part Self-Help, part Textbook, part Cheerleader and part Workbook. It’s packed full of everything I’ve learned, including Grain-Free Recipes!

I’m so excited to be able to share it with you. It’s extremely hard when your life becomes a small shell of what it once was and all you can think about is maybe getting out of bed and possibly, maybe taking a shower that day. You lose your job, your social life, your extra-curricular activities, your sleep and finally, you can lose your happiness and joy. I learned so much on my journey of healing from autoimmune diseases and mental illnesses about how our bodies are amazing and how our mental health is intricately connected to our physical bodies.

People I meet now can’t believe I used to be so ill, the changes are that dramatic. Once I started studying, I soon realized that the steps I was taking towards healing and wellness would apply to anyone at any stage of their own journey.
