Hi, I’m Amber.

I’m a former musician originally from Chicago living in the Northern Colorado area. I have been studying Health and Nutrition in all of its various aspects for over a decade now, and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge with others.

Why Punkrock?

I started listening to Punk Rock and Alternative music since Junior High and fell in love with it. Since then, I love my music loud and in-your-face. I love all things dark and creepy. I’m a Crunchy-Granola-Punk-Lover – things that seem like they don’t typically work together and I’m on a mission to unite them.

A few years ago, I saved up my money and bought some products from a popular makeup brand that hailed itself as being “natural”. After wearing it for a few hours, I washed it off and went to sleep. The next morning I had a rash-like outbreak on my forehead that lingered for a couple of months. Nothing I did was helping it go away.

Finally, it had cleared. Out of curiosity, I tried the makeup again and the rash came back, this time for several months. After researching the ingredients, I found that it wasn’t very natural at all.

This started my continual process of finding out what ingredients really are in the products that we use in our everyday lives. Once my husband and daughter also experienced allergic reactions to items such as laundry detergent and hand soap, it made me realize that I really needed to step up my investigation and try to help other people take control of the ingredients in products that they are using in their lives as well.

My second child was born very sick and this pushed me even further. I now found myself researching everything I could about nutritional healing, supplements, and the effects of the diet on the body.

What now?

I feel as if I’ve discovered my purpose – and that is to lead others to be the happiest, healthiest version of themselves that they can be. Join me on this exciting journey of self-discovery and natural healing. It’s going to be fun, crazy, weird, and slightly spooky!
