Throughout her 20’s, Sarah had chronic health issues that often left her exhausted, sick, and with a feeling that something wasn’t right despite a concerted effort to live a holistic lifestyle. After becoming very ill from a parasite and being prescribed multiple rounds of intense antibiotics, Sarah’s health issues finally came to a head. By this point, she could barely tolerate any foods and keeping her high-stress agency job felt next to impossible. With little to no hope given by western medicine, Sarah dug into alternative therapies including herbalism and naturopathy. She spent years researching her ailments and looking for alternative treatments so she could become her own best health advocate.
Working with integrative medical professionals, she quickly realized that plant-based medicine was a crucial part of her recovery. It wasn’t about a quick fix, but about slowly supporting her body’s journey back to a state of homeostasis or balance where it had the power to heal itself. It was this journey which led her to experiment with cannabis and specifically CBD. For the first time in years, Sarah was able to relax and enjoy food (and life!)
During this period, she began to take notice of the unsung epidemic that was happening with many other women in her age group. Women all around her were experiencing mystery illnesses related to stress with little to no help from modern medicine. With a newfound passion and purpose, Sarah quit her job and committed herself to help busy women feel their best by tapping into the power of plants. Prismatic Plants was born.
