As many know from my other blogs and if you follow me on social media. I love natural healthcare and medicines.
I recently put an ad out on my facebook page asking businesses to let me know if they would like to be featured on my blog as a way to grow their new businesses or even just get more clients and customers for their already established businesses. I got several responses and am working on a few future posts as we speak to start posting here soon. I am wanting to give more of a background into what makes people start their businesses along with sharing some of the info about the business as well.
I want to be able to help others both find a work from home job they can do and help companies as well.
So, this will be my first post doing just that.
Leaning Tree Naturals is a newer health supplement company that makes high-quality supplements that target specific health conditions.
I asked the owner of Leaning Tree Naturals to give me a background of why she decided to start making and offering her supplements to others and here is what she said:
In 2011 I suffered a concussion that caused me to have daily migraines. I had had occasional migraines before that but they became much worse and were occurring every day after the concussion. I lost so much during that time. I lost the best paying job I had ever had, I almost lost my house, I lost my social life and friends, I lost the ability to participate in the activities I loved. I was so depressed about the poor quality of my life and the chronic pain that I was on the verge of suicide. It was about this time that I read a book by a biochemist and I decided to try the bio-active vitamins and minerals he recommended to improve my overall health and mood. After 2 weeks I was driving to work and realized that I didn’t have my daily migraine. The next day I waited for a migraine to appear but it didn’t. It has now been 14 months since I’ve had a migraine. Obviously, the nutrients got rid of the migraines but I started taking over 20 supplements at the same time! To make a long story a little less long, after months of reading NIH and Linus Pauling and any other double-blind studies I could find, I was able to figure out which vitamins and minerals got rid of the migraines. While I was doing my research I realized how useless and inferior the vast majority of supplements are. I had been taking supplements for 30 years but I never felt any better and the migraines didn’t stop. But the bio-active nutrients worked quickly.
Because I knew the impact that migraines could have on someone’s life, I decided to risk everything to make my own supplement that combined the eight ingredients that eliminated my migraines into 1 supplement. I borrowed against my house and used all of my savings to get my first two products manufactured (my second product is a diabetic support formula). For a year I dealt with lawyers, the FDA, the federal trademark office and many other people to get my supplement made. But I still didn’t know if my product would help others. Just because it helped me didn’t mean it would work for everyone. I was scared to death. Luckily I have heard back from 3 friends who were my (voluntary) guinea pigs and they have had fantastic results! Phew!
2. What is it you like most about your business?
What I like most is helping people have better quality lives. It may not be as interesting as putting on eyeshadow or lipstick but I think that our health is much more important than the superficial substances we put on our bodies.
Another thing I like is being challenged to learn and grow constantly. I take online classes whenever I can and read everything health-related to stay on top of new studies. I want to add more products in the future which requires researching more studies because I only want to use ingredients that have been scientifically proven to work. There are many products on the market that claim to help you sleep, have more energy, or lift your mood, or whatever. What shocked me is that when these substances are studied, they are no better than placebos!
3. What are some benefits to you in your business?
The biggest benefit is when someone tells me that my products have helped her. That makes the hard work and risk worthwhile.
Another benefit is I have been forced to be more outgoing and not hide in my turtle shell as much as I used to.
4. How much time per week do you spend working on your business?
The time commitment varies. Because I just started my business I’m not very busy right now. Hoping that changes soon!

*What I also noticed on the website that I thought was really great was that when you buy from leaning tree naturals a portion is donated to two different non-profit organizations!
