Holistic health and wellness researcher/advocate/writer, Amazon #1 bestselling author, and software technical trainer/tester/analyst/writer, Sheila Murrey, walks her talk. She daily practices all things natural and holistic, with an emphasis on alternative health and wellness since healing her body of asthma over 13 years ago. There is nothing 'fake' about Sheila. She lives simply without make-up, without color treating her hair, and eats a clean, plant-based diet. And even lives the RV life (full-time) - in order to keep a small carbon-footprint.

Sheila graduated with honors, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication online in 2004. And previously, she earned her Associates in Science in Business Administration degree while working full-time at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. With a combined experience of 30 years in administrative database and enterprise software systems, she has empathy for those who suffer from daily stress. Sheila uses an array of techniques, such as: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu, Yoga, Prayer, Meditation, Energy Medicine, and Journaling, because these modalities have helped her to live with ease and grace through the most difficult of circumstances. Sheila is able to speak well of the healing practices she uses and loves to show others how they can reduce stress and anxiety when it occurs.

Sheila has always been very passionate about health, integrative nutrition, holistic healing and educating others how live a healthier life. Sheila believes in personal responsibility, both at work, and in taking care of one's body. Thus, she launched 'Take It Upon Yourself' PR and blog.

Sheila is now dedicating herself to bringing wellness to others.

Take it upon yourself to BE the whole person you want to be, healthy, active, vibrant, energetic, joyful and HAPPY! Help yourself, embrace your personal power. Only when you are happy and healthy can you give to others. Accept responsibility for your health and well being and live WELL!

Become your own wellness advocate! YOU know you're body better than any doctor - because you've been living in it all your life!

Everything happens for a reason. Sheila maintains a high priority of helping others learn about wellness because, "We Are All Connected". Sheila has a Native American ancestry that always put forth the idea that, "We are all related." Sheila's phrase, "We Are All Connected", inspired the song "The Connection", performed by The Chevy Ford Band, on iTunes and CDBaby.com.

When you accept responsibility for your own health and well-being, it affects us all.
