A Little About Me...
Hey y'all! I'm Amber, and I'm blessed to be the owner of Juice Core (along with my husband of course), but I would argue that while Paul is the brains behind this operation, I'm more like the very heart of it all, working quietly behind the scenes (I'm camera shy!) and in the shop to keep things going and our doors open. You've probably seen me in the shop at some point helping prepare fresh juices for the day! I wanted to take a moment to share something personal with you. You may not know it by glancing at the photos above or chatting with me during your visit to my shop, but I have been through quite a journey to end up here in Sunny Scottsdale, running the juice bar of my dreams!
I have struggled with my health for most of my adult life, but it reached it's worst about one year after my daughter was born. I started losing my hair, gaining weight, having skin issues, brain fog, poor memory, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, insomnia, inflamed joints, the beginning of thyroid issues, and severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and more.
My doctor insisted I was depressed, but I just knew it was something else. I had lost my vibrancy, I felt like my very life force was leaking out of my body and I knew this was something physical that needed to be addressed. After things continued to get worse over the course of the year, I hit rock bottom. I thought I was dying (dramatic, I know) but seriously! I couldn't understand how my body was struggling so much to just get through each day. I couldn't even push my baby girl to the park in her stroller; which was a 5 minute walk. I had to drive her there each day because I did not have the energy otherwise.
After quite a few doctors visits, tests, no answers, ER visits, more tests, still no answers, furiously researching symptoms, back to my doctor, begging for more tests, still no answers, and repeating this cycle over and over, I finally went to a holistic nutritionist. I was out of ideas, so I didn't know what else to do. After reviewing the insane amount of testing I had previously done, she was concerned for my adrenal health, thyroid health, and liver health, and immediately went to work giving me a prescription that saved my life: CLEAN EATING.
She helped me clean up my diet, as well as my lifestyle, and adding in organic juices was a HUGE part of my healing journey. I honestly cannot believe how much healing can happen through eating the right foods. It's a long and complicated story of ups and downs, and it's been the hardest but most rewarding experience that ultimately, led me to Juice Core; a little gem in the desert that was built on doing things the right way.
I'm still not 100%, but I have come so very far from where I was 2 years ago and I feel great! This is why Juice Core, for me, is a place where business crosses deeply into the personal. I am literally living this quest toward wellness, and so I am very passionate about the quality of the ingredients we use in all of our products! The juices and smoothies we sell are the same juices and smoothies my family and I drink each day to stay healthy.
If you took the time to read this, thank you! I am sharing my own journey in hopes this will help you! If you stop in, ask if I'm there and say hi! I love to hear other people's journeys, their experiences, and getting to know those who love supporting this incredible business that has changed my life for the better, and continues to do the same for so many of you.
With so much Love,
