Dr. Jamie Thomure

Overcoming Mediocrity


Dr. Jamie Thomure

Dr. Jamie has a passion for helping people get to the root of their health issues. Believing in the body’s ability to heal when given the proper support, she teaches clients how natural methods and lifestyle changes can impact the body.

Jamie is the owner of DuPage Family Wellness, a chiropractic office in Warrenville, IL. While she loves seeing patients in her office, she desires to help even more people. In an attempt to do so, she has created two online courses: “7 Weeks of Real Food” and “Balanced.”

In “Seven Weeks of Real Food,” people explore how eating “real food” can be life-changing. Participants are encouraged to make changes to their eating habits, as they learn the “why” behind the recommendations.

“Balanced” is a program designed for women with PCOS who want to lose weight without just eating less and exercising more. Throughout six months, these women learn what is driving their symptoms and how to balance their hormones through natural lifestyle changes and supplements.

These courses help women to get to the root cause of their issues through small achievable steps. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, women discover which lifestyle changes would be most helpful for them to feel their best. They are also invited into an online community, where they can find the accountability and support they need to be successful.

In her spare time, Jamie loves cooking, growing veggies, reading, spending time in nature, and of course, hanging out with her husband and three daughters.

More information about these courses can be found at her website below.

My Story

Finding My Passion by Getting to the Root Cause

Jamie’s story shares how the universe led her to believe that the body wants to thrive, and when we find the root cause of symptoms, it can heal. This created a passion in her to help as many people as possible live a whole and healthy life. She is now focusing this passion on helping women with PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) get to the root of their symptoms and take charge of their health. The natural methods she uses may be different from traditional medicine but are backed with science. She tells many stories of lives changed through these approaches.

Sandra Dugan

Overcoming Mediocrity


Sandra Dugan

Sandra’s path started in the most ordinary way. She grew up in a small family, graduated from high school, and began her service in the US Navy. She wanted to fly fighter jets at the time. It was the 1970’s, however, and women just weren’t allowed to do that. So, with a big sigh, she became a Navy corpsman. This would turn out to be the moment she found her passion for helping people to heal from sometimes horrific injuries. She also found her calling to teach others the ins and outs of her field.

As time went on, Sandra found her way into the private sector as a medical assistant. Her skill in patient care was enhanced by her ability to relate to the patient and help them express their concerns more effectively to the doctors. She was, in fact, reading their energetic body and helping to translate that into medical jargon.

As her career grew, Sandra found herself working in corporate America designing, communicating, and administering benefit plans. As time went on, her path led back to a more patient care-oriented calling. She attended the Soma Institute in Chicago, IL, where she learned the ins and outs of clinical massage therapy.

As a national board-certified massage therapist, Sandra found her empathic talents coming to the forefront of her life. She completed training to become her empathic and energetic healing skills.

Sandra is the founder of Energetic Essence, an organization designed to merge her two greatest passions, healing arts, and the written word. Sandra is a Reiki Master Practitioner and has been trained in Shamanism, Qi Gong and clinical massage therapy. She believes that no one travels your healing path for you. However, you may encounter many who will help you along the way.

Sandra is currently designing programs in energy work, crystal healing, and the power of the universe. You can reach out to her at for further information and assistance.

My Story

My Energetic Awakening

After a lifetime of feeling like something was calling her, Sandra stumbled across a book that would help her life make sense. Or perhaps, a book stumbled across her. Since that encounter, she realized that there are no accidents. When we heed the signs, life will lead you exactly where you need to be. When you don’t heed the signs, the universe throws a deer.

My Story

Soul Retrieval: The Courage to Fear Less

Soul Retrieval: Courage to Fear Less is a story about overcoming great odds that surround childhood sexual and spiritual abuse. Sadly, childhood abuse and neglect are not uncommon things, and this leaves a large percentage of the adult population struggling. Mary’s story shines a light on how these things can interrupt the life of adults who are dealing with soul loss, due to the events surrounding childhood traumas. It also shines a light on what can happen when you become curious about feeling better and decide to take a path other than the one you came from.

Erin Pignatiello

Growing up, family was a constant and stable part of Erin’s life. Her strong desire to be a mother was born out of her family ties and the constant love that surrounded her. Erin was raised and still lives in the state of New Jersey. She has lived in the same small town for most of her life. In this small town, Erin met her future husband at the age of nine. They began dating at age sixteen and married at age twenty-five. A mother of three children, two girls and one boy, Erin was living the life she dreamed of having as a stay at home mom.

Erin worked for eleven years in various positions within her family owned business. She also worked as an ABA Therapist for children on the Autism spectrum. During this time, Erin was working on a college degree in Elementary Special Education. Erin is currently completing her bachelor of science in elementary education and special education at Grand Canyon University.

The summer of 2013 was a turning point for Erin’s health. She developed neurological symptoms that caused mental, physical and emotional pain. Erin spent two years going doctor to doctor, procedure to procedure, in search of a doctor and cure. Unfortunately, that doctor was never found. Erin was left to discover her condition and treatment on her own. This is when she became her own “Mighty Me”.

In November, 2016, Erin found relief from the use of doTERRA’s peppermint essential oil. This gift from God brought immediate relief and as a result, Erin dove into the world of essential oils and holistic living. Erin started her own business as a trained Wellness Advocate for doTERRA International and shares her story of personal triumph over sickness as she educates others about the use of essential oils.

My Story

Mighty Me

Life is not without its ups and downs, they are constantly there. They shape and mold who you are and the life you lead. As a wife and mother of three, Erin was leading a productive, happy, healthy life, and blessed with a great family, an amazing husband, and three beautiful children. Unfortunately, life has a way of butting in and placing obstacles in the way of happiness. As she entered into the “sick” phase of her life, she became bitter, angry, and, quite frankly, the woman she did not want to be. She was in for the biggest fight of her life.
