Jamie's Mission

jamie vess

My mission is to provide quality products and service through education and leadership, with a little fun, to best represent my passion and purpose... Better health.

When people ask me why I opened a health store, the answer is simple [kind of]. Understanding nutrition saved my life. Learning to listen to my body saved my life. Plants have healed me in ways I will never stop teaching others about.

For over 10 years I fought depression, had two different types of eating disorders. I had insomnia. My heart almost stopped beating. My organs almost shut down on me. I had pain in my body daily. I was on and off several medications for treatment. I was ready to give up on finding answers and help. This started when I was only 14 years old. Thankfully, at the beginning of 2015, everything started looking up and massive change and improvements took over in my life. My dream since I was young was to open a health store to provide herbal remedies and affordable options for health and wellness. It just took me several years to figure out how it all really aligned properly.


Kind Words

Thank you for your help and suggestions. I bought probiotics, Cleanse powdered blend, and No Go Heavy Flow. All amazing products and am really seeing a difference...the most amazing is the No Go Heavy Flow. I have suffered from terrible cramps and heavy bleeding with endometriosis for over 30 years, always using Ibuprofen 800 mg and a heating pad those first few days. Not this time! For the first time ever, I didn't have to take Ibuprofen or even the heating pad thanks to the No Go Heavy Flow!! This is a miracle. My cramping was hardly noticeable! I've been more mindful of what I eat as well as exercising, and that in combination of your products has been a life changer! Thank you so much! I've been telling everyone to try this.

"Hands down favorite store in Sioux City! From the first time I stepped foot in there Jamie and her staff made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. I’ve been going in every week for months now and any health issue/concern I have had Jamie has helped tremendously. The atmosphere itself is very inviting and cozy, the staff is super friendly, and the prices are affordable. I’m obsessed with the organic loose leaf teas that Jamie is constantly creating; as well as her own skin care line that has completely evened out and cleared my face! Every time you go in it’s like a personalized shopping experience, I highly recommend."
