Ditch and Switch method

Teaching you how to heal on a cellular level.

Did you know that the average US woman uses 12 personal care products a day, containing 168 different chemicals? THAT IS DAILY! Typically it’s in the morning, meaning that women are starting their day by putting stress on the body.

In just 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals, they can be found in every organ in the body. The USA only bans around 112 toxins while Europe bans over almost 2000 in personal care products alone. More than 500 chemicals on average can be found in American homes. Indoor pollutants are the first thing I start to work with people. Our environment plays a huge role in how we feel daily. Continuous exposure to unnatural substances overloads our natural detoxification systems and leads to a buildup in our bodies. Think of our bodies as a glass of water. There is an empty cup put under a toxic drip. Drip after drip this accumulates into our body and fills our glass. Eventually, we have collected enough toxic drips (exposures), until our glass overflows. This is the tipping point when we have reached the toxic threshold.

These statistics are not meant to scare you or shame you. We don’t know, what we don’t know – Can we avoid everything? No way. Nobody is perfect. But we can take steps to learn more and do better every day.

This is what I call the Ditching and Switching Method! Ditching toxins causing havoc in the body and switching to clean products that support your body on a cellular level. This can be done in many ways like one ingredient at a time, one room at a time, one body system at a time, or even one stressor at a time.

A few toxins I look for are Fragrance, Triclosan, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). These toxins are linked to coughing, skins rash, wheezing, headaches, nausea, vomiting, irritability, birth defects, hormone imbalance, damaged cells, increase inflammation, eye irritation, asthmatic response, hair loss, cataracts and so much more when used regularly. Here are a few places I find them hiding in the home.

Candles/Air Fresheners, Perfumes, Supplements, Lotions, Soaps (hand soaps, dish soaps, body soaps), Deodorants, Cosmetics, Shaving gel, Baby products, Hair Care, Snacks, Sunscreen, Bug Spray, Laundry Detergent, Pet shampoo, Toothpaste, Tampons/Pads, CBD, Energy Drinks, and House Hold Cleaners.

When you start to switch, things can get a little overwhelming learning about the toxins, throwing away what has toxins in it, detoxing the toxins out, or even just where to start. This is where I come in! Below are some of my favorite products, bundles and places to start. If you are still not sure – use the chat widget in the bottom right to ask me a question!

Here are some of my favorite wellness products to use!

These bundles are based on what I personally use. Some of these bundles have the ingredients for my favorite DIYs, Once you order I will get you those complete recipes, plus you can read the testimonies of the success stories in my private education community!

Why you do not want to trust what is on the shelf

Another big thing to be aware of is greenwashing! If a product at the store claims itself as “green”, “natural” or “biodegradable” – that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s non-toxic. Unfortunately, many brands will look natural, but when you flip the label over you will see that it is still packed full of toxins. Some of you will have to dive a bit deeper and look at the parent company to see if they have clean products that aren’t GMO.

This is why once I find a company I like, I use them regularly. The body really thrives when you fuel it with real nutrients consistently! One of the companies I have fallen completely in love with has what is called a Seed To Seal guarantee. This is where they know what’s in the soil, water, and seed that they plant and make sure there are no additives all the way to sealing the bottles. This company has a lot of clean products, which make it easy to Ditch and Switch!

I LOVE WORKING WITH MARISSA!! She is fanfreakingtastic! Her enthusiasm is contagious and abundant. Marissa’s dedication to fulfill her job description of leading a team of ladies toward a 3 month goal is admirable. Her willingness to help like-minded learners acquire new skills and hone talents is much appreciated. I look forward to the knowledge she will serve up in the future.

You know one of the things I love about you? You dont just say “i’ll handle thing” but encourage growth and responsibility and actually teach how to do something and get to the bottom of limiting beliefs.

Before oils I use to go through allergy medicine like crazy (I would develop an immunity to them after a couple of days) Your allergy protocol works so fast and I never build an immunity to it and its been years!!!

We use YL CBD oil. My husband is a combat vet and has pain all over his body from many close by explosions he experienced during his time in war. The CBD oil and rub, along with chiropractic care and a clean diet, have made a tremendous difference in reducing pain and inflammation.

OH WOW! I just applied envision to my forehead. Valor to my heart. Rosemary to my scalp. Diffusing Egyptian Gold. Im like not on earth right now. I LOVE OILS!

Your protocols got me 20 prospects in 6 days. THATS THE FASTEST IVE EVER BUILT CUSTOMERS!

I was hesitant to work with Marissa initially.. because of my lack of technology skills. However she quickly put me at ease and our sessions were fun, and informative. Marissa’s kindness, patience and determination to help me understand technology allowed me to grow at my own pace and be successful.

I highly recommend Marissa.. and look forward to working with her again in the future!


Just 1 month of working together my social media has dramatically increased – engagement on posts, im more consistent, and connecting with more people! This is awesome!!
