I realize I may have a biased opinion on ApotheKelly products, but we use them because they work! So I had to share a recent success with ApotheKelly Pain, Sprain, and Bruise arnica and CBD salve (25 mg, btw!)

I had a smashed my toe (possibly broken) on Friday December 29th. The first pic is day 1 and the second is after 2 days of twice a day use. After 5 days my toe is virtually back to normal.
I’m even running full speed and keeping up with our 2 adventurous boys.

Certified Health Coach, PEMF Therapy, & Red Light Therapy Practitioner
Healing, from the Earth Hi! in Buena Vista, CO.

Do you eat any of these superfoods? What are your favorites?


Some sources of dairy-free calcium for my DF folks.


EVERY year I say "no more chickens" because do y'all know what a responsibility it is to keep these tiny dinosaurs alive? And the trauma involved in losing a bird to its preditors?
And every year I come home with another flock of chicks because the world is going to hell and now eggs are being sold on the black market and..."what if"....
So yes, more chickens will be coming this weekend.

Where are my chicken owners out there?!? Or with the price of eggs as it is, will there be any new chicken owners this year?


There's an old song by Adam Lambert that popped into my head when I was posting this - "Whataya Want From Me!?"
Anyone else's thoughts driven by song lyrics?

Anywho...What do you want from me on this page?
Do you like when I share my personal experience and how I fixed it (or didn’t)
Do you want to learn about what it's like to lazy homestead in the mountains of colorado?
Do you like tidbits of health and wellness information?
Do you like recipes ( I know y’all like recipes)

Tell me what I can do to make this page work best for you!

Also, if you are not a part of my ApotheKelly Wellness Warriors group, I suggest you go check it out.


I grew up in Michigan where once Fall hits you don't see the sun until about April and why would you want to do anything outside?
I now live in Colorado where even if it's 20 degrees outside it's not that cold (if it's not windy) and you can get out and play!
It also helps that we have these new Pickleball courts in town.....and we now know the rules of the game...and have new paddles....and it was sunny this day.

Do you play outside in the cold (other than skiing or snowboarding)? Where do you live? How often do you get out?


Not enough health professionals are talking about Long Covid. Long Haulers. Whatever it is, it’s the after-effect of a COVID infection and most of the time is worse than the actual illness itself.
For me, I have been battling it since my November 2021 infection. The lingering respiratory issues, chronic cough, lack of breath, fatigue, and loss of taste were all present but I didn’t recognize it until the anxiety hit me full force about a year ago. There was zero reason for me to be feeling the anxiety as intense as it was so I started doing my research.
Most people won’t even recognize they are Long Haulers. They recognize that they haven’t “bounced back” after COVID but they typically don’t put the two together.

Some symptoms include:
Loss of taste/smell (or food tastes or smells rotten)
Brain Fog
Cough/Shortness of breath
Heart palpitations
Difficulty with sleep
Mood changes
Menstrual changes
Stomach issues

Brain fog is among the most confusing symptoms for long haulers. Patients report being unusually forgetful, confused or unable to concentrate even enough to watch TV.

Supplements, a possible change in diet, PEMF, and time is just about all that you can do to work through the symptoms. I bought my PEMF mat to help alleviate the for just that reason (and it's working! No more burning muscles, chronic cough, or anxiety!)

If you are local and experiencing Long-Hauler symptoms, I invite you to come in and do a few sessions on my PEMF mat. You can schedule a session at www.apothekellywellness.com/pemf or text me at 719-221-6516,


Let’s talk about Red Food Dye. If you wonder why your kid is an as***le when they get home from school on Valentine's Day, just remember this....

The first time I realized it the effects it had on my kids was absolutely terrifying. My oldest started screaming at the top of his lungs, completely freaking out like he was in intense pain, eyes, bugged, rocking back and forth in his car seat. It was nothing I had ever experienced as a mom before. I had to pull the car over to figure out what was wrong with him and as I pulled the red velvet cupcake from his hand I immediately knew it was the red food dye.

Why are you still eating ANYThing with this toxin in it? It is thought to be linked to allergies, migraine, and mental disorders in children.
• Studies have shown that it causes a dramatic increase in hyperactivity and hypersensitivity in people, kids particularly. Red food dye can also
• cause inflammation and weakens the immune system
• negatively impact the functioning of the liver and other vital organs
• interfere with the digestive enzymes that our bodies produce to help properly break down the food that we eat
• increase intestinal permeability aka “leaky gut”
• be links to respiratory disorders, such as asthma and bronchitis
• negatively impact nerve cell development
• and cause cancer in animals

Most EU countries have BANNED the use of all synthetic dyes in all consumables and beauty products or require a warning on the package if it contains food dye.

It’s much easier to remove from your diet than you think. Started reading labels and don’t buy anything that contains ANY food dye. Most products have a substitute that you can find that is made without chemicals - need help finding a substitute, let me know! I'll find one for you.



Doing "nothing" is actually doing something. We don't always have to be on the go, doing something, cleaning something, helping someone....

rest, relaxation, recover - our bodies need it.

My Health Coaching is different than most. I will not make you count macros or calories. I won’t make you remove any food unnecessarily. I also do not promise you will lose weight. But I will PROMISE you that you will see significant changes in your life when you start paying attention to your habits and behaviors behind them (and oftentimes weight loss is one of those changes).
Health coaching is more than just the food you eat because your health is more than just what you eat. It plays a big role, but that’s not all. It’s your behaviors, mindset, and attitude towards food and life, it’s your mental health, your job, the amount you move your body, your creativity or outlet, your spirituality, your finances, your relationships…and when we start your journey we take ALL of it into consideration.
I am NOT a therapist, but I am a master organizer and planner and can teach you how to get your life organized, start making better choices, and break those bad habits.
If you're serious about making changes to your health, I would love to be your guide. Reach out for a consultation 719-221-6516 and let's get your journey started.

(bonus, locals get a complimentary PEMF treatment!)


Want to see what the building looks like that my new office is in?!? I'm in suite 6 (my favorite number).

I lost a client last week...and I couldn't be happier!

I can tell when they are ready to be done with me, our last session is simply a catch-up and there is really nothing more to talk about in terms of their struggles. Because there are none. They've done the work, they know how to make and break habits, they have been through all of the ups and downs of life and together we have figured out they can get through it or what they can learn for next time. They have learned how to recognize patterns, how to feed and listen to their body, how to set boundaries, how to love themselves and make themselves a priority. They have learned it all and they are ready to do it on their own.
WHO WOULDN'T BE EXCITED ABOUT THAT? It means there is one more person out in the world that has transformed into the person they wanted to be.

And when I say this person was the BEST client I have ever coached, I am being 100% serious. They put in the work for this change. They did the things they told me they weren't going to do when we first started. And the mindset shift and amount of awareness this person has gained is mind-blowing and I am so incredibly proud of them!


Who are you? It took me a good 40+ years to figure out who I really am (and still working on it!) Your identity is not just a label, it shapes who you are and drives your habits. It's the foundation of your beliefs, values, and actions. Understanding your identity can help you live a more authentic life, align your actions with your beliefs, and make decisions that are true to who you are.
But here’s the thing for people that have ADHD. We “mask” and with ADHD can be a constant battle between hiding your true self and feeling like you need to fit in. It can make it difficult to figure out who you are, what you stand for, and what makes you unique. As a result, it can lead to a sense of loss of identity and a feeling that you're not enough. It's okay to be yourself and embrace your quirks because no one is you, that’s your superpower.


The law of attraction dictates that whatever energy you put into the world is the energy that will come back to you. You choose what you're looking for because what you look for, you find.
Negative mindset? Everything sucks, she sucks, the govt sucks...
Positive mindset? She's nice, that's incredible, I got this opportunity.

Your choice, your life.


Ew, is everyone sick where you live too? I'm loading up on immune boosting fruits, veggies, and supplements...and laying on my PEMF mat.

My new favorite "smoothie" (but not really) is inspired by the drink I had at Choice Health Bar in Maui. I'm still playing with the ingredient amounts but here's what's in it-this makes 2+ 16oz (ish) servings:
1-2 peeled lemons (or 1/4-1/3 cup lemon juice)
1 peeled lime (or 2 TBL/1oz.)
1/2 cup-ish frozen pineapple
1 heaping tsp spirulina
1 shake of cayenne pepper
ice (1 cup-ish)
1 cup (ish) water, maybe more
2-4 TBL maple syrup (low glycemic index so it doesn't spike your blood sugar)
Blend it all up and you're good to go!

💪 Research finds that spirulina also boosts the production of white blood cells and antibodies that fight viruses and bacteria in your body.
💪 Lemon and lime contain vitamin C which also helps the body absorb iron from foods and supports the immune system.
💪 Pineapple also contains Vitamin C and also contains enzymes that have been shown to activate a healthy immune system response.
💪 Surprisingly, Cayenne pepper is at the top of the list of strong immune-enhancing ingredients and can help reduce inflammation which positively impacts immune function

PEMF was originally used to extend the life of racehorses by healing their broken bones and injuries so they wouldn't have to be killed. When we apply the same frequency to the human bones and injury we achieve the same results.

PEMF sessions not only can help speed up the recovery of your broken bones/tendons/ligaments, but it also helps with pain management at the same time.

Curious about PEMF therapy or want to schedule a session, visit www.apothekellywellness.com/pemf



One of my friends has not been feeling right ever since C0vid hit last year. So I got her on my PEMF mat this morning and a few hours later she sent me this text.

It may not feel like it's doing anything when you're on the mat, but it is definitely doing something!


Do you do a monthly reflection at the end of each month? A little check-in to see what went well and what you could improve on? Here are a few questions to ask yourself (or better yet, write down) to ensure gratitude, awareness, and reflection for the month we just completed.

What went well this month?
What projects did I finish?
What was my biggest challenge?
What can I learn from that?
Did I practice self-care/boundary setting?
What am I spending too much time one?
What do I need to focus more on next month?
What did I learn this month?
What am I grateful for?
Who helped me reach my goals?

It's your turn to share...what is one bit of health information that changed your brain chemistry and your life forever?

Photos from ApotheKelly Wellness's post 01/17/2023

Over 7,000 studies, 10,000 papers, and 2,000 double blind studies have proven the benefits of PEMF – along with multiple FDA-approvals for healing, it’s safe to say that this therapy works. EVERYONE can benefit from PEMF Therapy - human and animal alike (my dogs love it!)
• Improves immune function
• Increases energy
• Reduces pain, inflammation, swelling
• Promotes healing of sore muscle, joint, ligament pain
• Allows better sleep
• Helps you recover from an injury faster
• Improves athletic performance
• Improves lymphatic circulation....and so much more


My dogs LOVE PEMF. The little one gets up from wherever he is and comes and lays on me when I lay on the mat at home. The big one will lay under it if it’s hanging off of the couch. It’s intentional placement, I know this.
1) Because PEMF was originally used on injured racehorses
2) Animals can feel frequencies more than we can and these PEMF frequencies feel good to them so they are attracted to the energy

I am actually certified to treat small animals like dogs, cats, goats etc. with PEMF therapy, my large animal (horse) certification is in the works.
Here’s a bit of information about PEMF and animals

Back in November, I had a severe and chronic allergic reaction that caused an eczema breakout around my eyes, mouth, and the side of my face. I woke up every morning with, painfully swollen itchy eyes. It lasted over 6 weeks. I was able to get most of the eczema under control except for around my mouth. Flaky, itchy, cracked, and red…I kind of look like a clown…But it’s better than what I have been looking like the past few months. This before doesn't capture the worst of it (I am NOT putting those pics online). But it was about a week after it started.

The only product that has brought any relief to my face has been my Soothe salve. It’s a plant-based all-purpose salve that's good for pretty much anything you can think of. Made with a whole bunch of medicinal herbs that are known to support skin issues and relieve pain, this product is also a top-seller in 2022 as it was in the Sunset Spring 2022 subscription box! You can learn more about it here: www.apothekellywellness.com

My Story

Hi! I’m Kelly, a Certified Health Coach and owner of ApotheKelly Wellness. My passions are many (thanks ADD) but hey, I never am at a loss for something to talk about! Whether it be whole health, whole-food, wellness, do-it-yourself (anything!), natural remedies (I call this my low-hanging fruit), inspiration, personal growth, gemstone/crystal woo (and the beautiful jewelry I make with it), organic wellness products (that I also make) no-nonsense truth, pick-me-up-when-I’m-down goodness. I know, that’s a lot....and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

"Health" is an interesting term because “health” is not just about the food you put in your body or the exercise you put out. "Health" is a delicate balance of the main components of your life. The thoughts you put IN your head, your relationship with yourself and those around you, your relationship with money and your career, and the respect you have for yourself to move and utilize our incredible and able bodies - our Primary Food.

My passion for health and wellness really started my mom (and then eventually dually inspired by Martha Stewart in the 90’s.) I probably was the only 12 year old with a magazine subscription to Martha Stewart Living. But I was fascinated by every. single. page. I wanted to do it all and make it all just like her. And with my mom telling me ALL of the time “Kelly, you could MAKE that!” and then eventually “Will you make that for me?” I never thought I couldn’t do something. And thus spawned a lot of interests and fun habits. Habits that I have eventually turned into a Health Coaching practice and organic wellness product line.

But there is one thing I can’t do. Eat a LOT of different foods. As a Celiac and a lifelong allergy sufferer, I understand the frustration, anxiety, and fear that comes along with a food restrictions, allergies, and food intolerances. Over the years I have learned to adopt a simple and manageable whole food, gluten-free, allergy-friendly lifestyle for myself and my family with what we eat and the products we but on our body. Because food restrictions (allergies, intolerances etc.) affect more than just our digestive system.
