Mama Z’s Story

Although Mama Z has been working with herbs since she was a young child, she suffered with poor health for many years. Her family sold fresh herbs at a local farmer’s market from the time she was 5 years old and she would help at the market. There, the local farmers taught her about natural living, as well as some of the unnatural farming methods.

Her mother was involved with the International Herb Association and Mama Z grew up under the tutelage of this culinary and medicinal organization. Her mother’s best friend, an Ojibwa Indian, taught her all about holistic medicine and essential oils. In fact, she got her first essential oils kit, along with a book on aromatherapy, back in 8th grade.

Unfortunately, for many years she suffered with health issues, including undiagnosed food allergies and sensitivities, and was on 10 different medications by the time she was a young woman. She was taking medicine for AD/HD, allergies, feminine and digestive/intestinal issues.

Shortly after that, Sabrina accepted the Lord. As she started attending events with her church family and friends, she realized that she would get sick every time she ate at events and outings. She realized that she could not tolerate dairy and took it out of her diet.

However, this fear of eating foods that would make her sick evolved into an eating disorder. She suffered from bulimia for over a year and had dysmenorrhea. She was down to only eating a handful of foods. She told Dr. Z, “I need help. I don’t know what to eat anymore.”

She decided to go on a 10-day water fast, based on the scripture, Isaiah 58. On day 3, she started detoxing from her pores. And she took it on faith:

“I asked God to lift this burden. I really felt that I was ready. I had already weaned myself off or close to off of some of the medicines, but I just knew that God would heal my body. And I was able to get off of all those prescription drugs. Praise the Lord. I knew God was going to perfect those things that concern me.”

After meeting Dr. Z, she learned about things that were not healthy for her body, like wheat, gluten, dairy, sugar, and soy among other things. Over the years, the adjustments she made helped her develop the many recipes on and in the book she co-authored with Dr. Z, “The Essential Oils Diet.”

Additionally, she learned many hacks for eating out, vacationing, and other events to keep safe and healthy. Dr. Z and Mama Z used these tips and tools to develop their website as well as the many master classes, cookbooks, and other items they offer.

Their mission is to educate people so they, too, can live the abundant life!
