My wife, Dora, and I have been married for 35 years and we had 15 children, 9 boys and 6 girls. Currently, 13 are alive. I was born in Mexico while my wife was born in Guatemala, and we grew up drinking herbal teas and using natural ointments to alleviate almost any illness. If we had a stomach ache, we drank mint tea; Chamomile tea to relax; Lemongrass tea for inflammation; lime juice for insect bites; Arnica for bruises; and more. When we migrated to the US back in 1977, a lot of that remedy culture came with us, but as time went by, we started adjusting to the “modern” medicine culture and we noticed the change.
In 2004, we launched a natural product business of natural lip balms, hand scrubs, essential oil roll-ons, serums and creams. We were simultaneously running another business that took off, and the natural product company became a hobby that my wife and children continued.
In 2006, our six-year-old son, Rafael, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. That event changed our lives forever. The first thing we changed was our entire diet. We threw away the microwave and replaced the nonstick Teflon pots and pans with cast iron. We also gave up soda, sweets, canned and processed foods. Rafael’s tumor was inoperable, so we didn’t even try Chemo or radiation, and we dove into what we knew - natural medicine.
We believe that by switching to a natural diet and products we were able to give him a better quality of life and he lived his last days with dignity. Needless to say our lives were forever changed. As a coping mechanism, I started documenting Rafael’s last days and what began as a journal became a 200 page book. I just got the book reviewed by an editor and we are releasing it to the public at no charge. I would like to give you a copy of Rafael’s book so you can understand how we coped with this heavy burden. I would like you to share it with whomever you think will benefit from reading it.
In 2008 our twins, Javier and Santiago, were born prematurely weighing 3 and 4 lbs each and they both have Down syndrome, yes twins with Down syndrome. This was a new adventure for us, the twins required a lot of medical attention, and we spent about 35 days in the NICU and after that, we had long stays at the hospital.
The first few years were extremely tough, the boys, were sickly for a long time, so we dove deeper into natural remedies and products. We began using essential oils to help them build their immune systems, and we saw real improvements, we also got them in a vitamin C regiment and we started diffusing oils in their room every night and when they are getting a cold, we diffuse oil in a steam shower.
Now, thank God, they are living a much healthier life, and we continue to use the oils and vitamin C and will never stop. Another issue with our Down syndrome twins and two of our daughters is dry skin, which looks like eczema. We only use our handmade essential oil soaps to bath them and we are having success with a cream that my wife developed, that contains jojoba butter and essential oils. We treat colds and respiratory illnesses with essential oils, homeopathic medicine and teas, since we use and believe in the fact that natural products are better than chemical based products, we decided to launch our family business; Natural Choice Company.
Our goal is to bring you products that work for us, we believe that we can close that personal health loop for you -- let me explain -- people try to eat right, they exercise, but they put chemical loaded products on their skin! So in a way they are hindering all the good they are doing by eating right and exercising. The skin is the largest organ in our body and at times the absorption rate is greater than if we are ingesting. So all the chemicals in the bath soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body lotion, hand soap, cosmetics, etc. are absorbed into your body through your skin.
We know we are fighting the good fight by bringing awareness and helping people live healthier and happier lives. We hope you come along with us on this journey and we promise to bring you the best products at a very affordable price, because we believe that MLM companies are charging exorbitant prices for their products and they make it almost inaccessible for some people. We are not going to increase our prices by giving you fancy boxes or packaging that you throw away as soon as you open them, we are going to give you “high dollar quality products at a fair price”.
We hope you support us and become part of our extended family.
- Thank you very much.
Miguel, Dora and the Garcia Family
