Natural Living Oklahoma City

HOW WE GOT OUR NAME

New couple Dena and AJ were healthcare professionals living in different cities, trying to make it work long distance-- until a single event changed both of their lives--Dena nearly died of a brain aneurysm.

When Dena got sick, AJ, who was working twelve-hour hospital shifts in the emergency room each day, left work and drove two hours each way in an Oklahoma ice storm to sit by Dena’s bedside in the hospital. His unwavering commitment resulted in the realization that they were meant to be together and Dena credits AJ for saving her life with his love and support.

A healing journey

As Dena slowly recovered, she thought about all she'd been through. She was convinced that stress played a part in her illness and she set out on a long journey to learn ways to manage stress and balance her demanding career, health, and sanity (something we can all relate to today!).

At a loss with traditional methods, she left her corporate healthcare career and immersed herself in the folk healing arts that she’d dabbled in during the 20 years before her health scare --this time with a renewed sense of focus and passion.

Using holistic modalities Dena experienced a quick and profound shift; she suddenly felt more at ease and peaceful in her day to day life. Events that would’ve triggered her stress previously no longer created roadblocks... she was able to let them float away.

She also began to enjoy the mundane parts of life and found enjoyment in life's small moments, moments that would’ve made her bored before.
