Hanukkah Prayers and Wishes

Hanukkah is a Celebration deeply immersed in a history that includes pain, tragedy and redemption of the spirit.

Today, I found out one of my friends and partners lost a young family member yesterday at the Elementary School Shooting in Sandy Hook, Connecticut and I would like to request a prayer for his family.

Her name was Olivia, only six years old.

Share the gift of a Hug and Smile this Holiday!

God has brought me to this incredible place in my life where everything has merged with an incredible vision. 

I grew up in a physician's family, strongly grounded in the arts and sciences. My great, great grandfather was an Episcopalian Minister born in Leeds, England who began a parish in Michigan. After I began researching my ancestors I confirmed that so much of my spirit, creative talents and healing intuition was in my blood from way, way back in history, it is in my genes. I consider myself a "Intuitive Cultural Creative" and I am honored to have the opportunities and God gifted talents that have been revealed to me.

I was so personally transformed by the art of Ayurvedic Healing that I became a student of the ancient and modern wisdom of Ayurveda. Dr.'s Suhas and Manisha Kshirsagar, BAMS, MD (Ayurveda), Ayurvedic Physicians and Researchers are my guides and The Chopra Center for Well-being has been my anchor in training and education.

Dr. Suhas is a classically trained Ayurvedic physician and a gold medalist from prestigious Pune University. A Rig Vedic Bramhin by tradition and an accomplished Clinician by training adds tremendous value to his clients and students alike. Dr. Manisha has been teaching Ayurveda and yoga for more than 10 years. She specializes in women and infant health, skin care and natural beauty treatments. 

My focus is to help families, children and seniors by helping to open their internal pharmacy to prevent and heal disease. Each body is unique and your internal healing systems can repair and renew ancient cell history from your genealogy tracing back to the beginning of time. I focus on the mind, body and spirit consciousness, the attention and intention that stops the aging process.

This is a pivotal time in human history as Western Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine merge with astounding power to heal and transform. I am honored to be at the cutting edge of the world shift as it is happening.

Food for Life

Dear Friends,
People ask me all the time why I am so passionate about the Chopra Center for Wellbeing endorsed Ayurvedic Lifestyle Brand line of products, based on the books "Quantum Healing" and "Grow Younger, Live Longer" and how I became a founder at the very launch of this one and only unique company in 2007.

I receive calls daily from people trying to copy a small piece of what we do or want me to represent another trendy, short lived, start up. It is so easy to share with them that Zrii is the best of the best and we started with the gold standard science first. Beginning with award winning research and world renowned doctor's in 2004. No one can beat it. Absolutely no one.

Dr. Yarema and Me

Here is my story updated from 2008:

"As I was handling a lifetime of personal illness and deteriorating health in the last decade, I went from doctor to doctor with no satisfying results or answers. The traditional healthcare system was absolutely no help. Sadly, I was close to giving up. It became clear there must be a better way, but what was it? One of my friends handed me a book about Ayurveda in 2005 after my thyroid started giving me problems and I was incredibly impressed with what I was learning.  
After I began my research into holistic health and healing through Ayurveda, I was introduced to something unique and brand new: The Original Zrii Amalaki Elixir inspired by lead Science Advisory formulator Deepak Chopra, M.D. A doctor friend shared with me this new product he was introducing to his practice. I tried it and it was delicious, immediately my sleep improved, after almost never having the rest I needed and always feeling fatigued and exhausted, this was amazing all by itself. Then, after 3 weeks my carpal tunnel syndrome went away. Then my allergies began to fade and I was sold.

These are the wrist braces
I used to wear before 2008
I am a passionate testament to the quality of the results. This is the first experience in a lifetime without the emergency trips to the hospital many times a year, having cancer tests, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, thyroid problems, endometriosis, or a bi-weekly trip for steroid/allergy shots. The flu is also distant memory!
It is with extreme happiness to let you know that I have not been ill in 5 years. The one time I felt terrible (over 3 years ago) I went to bed, had a 101 fever and was better in 2 days. This had never happened to me before. I never just got a cold, I always became very ill with bronchitis or pneumonia and was sick for weeks and months on end, at least 2 – 3 times a year. A small fortune was spent in the industrial medical complex and big pharma, over the last decade, over $100,000! When one totals up prescriptions, plus lost work, friends and family time it really adds up. It was heartbreaking to really realize where my life has gone and it was time for a change.
In my first 2 years of only 3 oz of Zrii Elixir per day I saved over $33,600 of out of pocket healthcare costs and lost 25 lbs. As I began to regain my health. My hair has grown back beautifully, my skin, hair and nails are in the best shape ever, and I can breathe and enjoy the world as never before. I have never been happier in my life! If you have never known feeling your best, it is an eye opener!
My new vision and blood cell results: It takes about 6 months to totally regenerate your body from a cellular level. Each part at a different pace. My eyes have now improved .50 Diopters! I was terribly nearsighted since a child with no change until now. Also, after my blood was tested by a cellular microscopist, the results revealed beautiful, plump, healthy cells."

Healthy White Blood Cell

These cells pictured are made up of lymphocytes and leukocytes.
They form the basis of the immune system. There are approximately one or two white cells for every 500 red cells. When there is an elevated count it is usually a sign of an infection. 
The white blood cells protect us from infectious diseases and will destroy any cells that have mutated.

To summarize:

The steady, constant improvement of my body began by just using the first flagship product, Zrii, The Original Amalaki for the first couple of years. Everything else our scientists are developing has been well thought out to compliment and expand our one and only tri-dosha formulation 
Now into my fifth year, with our growing product line that now includes the NutriiVeda Achieve, Accell and Purify brand lines, my body is totally transformed!
Our results have been so impressive with hundreds of thousands of people now, helping families with with all kinds of chronic illness from autism and diabetes to brain trauma and fibromyalgia. I have heard from all kinds of people about all kinds of issues since 2007. It can get very emotional when someone has had a breakthrough in their life and body that they never felt before, so many just give up.
Mother's even relax and give birth with less pain, giving babies nutrition that is excellent for childhood brain development. Both men and women get their sex lives back. Menopause symptoms go away and IBS and painful periods for young women disappear.
We are not a diet, we are food for life. We do not use paid testimonials from celebrityies or doctors. We are the real deal.

You can learn more about Ayurveda in the Award Winning book "Eat * Taste * Heal", the bible of Ayurvedic cooking and knowledge. Tasting real food will change your life.

The view from here is lovely, it smells and feels great without allergies and we have saved a seat for you! 


In regards to the FDA, we follow all whole food protocol. Zrii is not a drug and does not have to be approved as such, all testimonials are personal and real. The research on our ingredients noted in all my posts is established and noted on the gold standard of research websites PubMed.gov.

Survival: Pneumonia and COPD

Vital questions:

How many of you are suffering from chronic illness and are being told it is normal and given another pill or shot?

Do you go to the doctor and be told that a symptom you are concerned about is a normal part of growing up or aging?

I would like to share part of my health history in the hope that it can help you and open your eyes to look at a much better solution you may not have thought of until now.

My life's experience was going to the emergency room several times a year with walking pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, strep throat, anaphylaxis shock, asthma, hives, flu and allergies to food and the environment. I suffered in silence and took what ever each doctor prescribed which created a vicious cycle of reactions that became unbearable. The new advertising term is COPD.

Did you know that because the symptoms of COPD develop slowly, some people may not know that they are sick?

This was something I lived with thinking it was normal. I still became an accomplished student, attending college beginning at 11 years old, worked towards award winning academic excellence, pursued modeling and became a very successful artist and business executive. In the meantime, my body was falling apart.

My doctors did not figure out what was wrong, I did. Through study and research I realized that my path began when I almost died of pneumonia when I was 2 years old. My family thought I was not coming home from the hospital. This health scare set my body up for a lifetime of chronic illness.

Happy Time

When I was in the hospital I was given penicillin which about killed me, I was allergic to the normal prescribed solutions to get better. During my early years in school I was sent home regularly with hives. I had trouble breathing during sports and was punished by the teachers for not performing.

Both my parents were in health care and my extended family were almost all doctors. Still, my mother was a smoker and still smoked until her 40's.

Another major concern was that I used to hang out with my father, Stanley Randolph Jesson, D.D.S, in his lab and watch him work, eventually partnering with him as his assistant. Liquid mercury and other toxins that were normal at the time to have in a practice were always around. I do believe this contributed to his own stroke at the base of his brain in 2005 and final death from dementia and pneumonia at 73 last year. My grandfather, also a Dentist and past president of the Michigan Dental Association, was practicing dentistry when it was accepted to handle radioactive film and dental X-Rays without a x-ray bib or apron. He died of lung cancer at 53 and did not smoke. His wife, my amazing grandmother Helen Julia Vitali Jesson, died of Parkinson's disease and pneumonia at 80 years old.

and one of my father's offices

My mother, a Registered Expanded Function Dental Hygienist (RDA), died of ovarian cancer also at 53. The doctor's never caught it until it was too late. I believe it was also mercury induced. 

The point of this story is to let you know that no matter what doctor's say and do, toxins are all around you.

You are soaking it up through your skin at every moment. Babies are now born with several hundred chemicals in their little fresh bodies before they even get started on junk food. My parents used red Mercurochrome all the time on every wound.

Did you know it is also becoming well established (first noted in 1977) that mercury poisoning and toxins can lead to ADHDautism, schizophrenia and so many learning disorders? I now understand why members of my family have suffered from many of these diagnoses, some with horrific endings.

I found my first introduction to Ayurvedic medicine a little over a decade ago. In 2005 a friend handed me a book on Ayurveda from India. Then I was introduced to an Ayurvedic, Homeopathic Chiropractor in 2007 - 2008 and he shared what finally made sense and what worked. 

The paradigm shift and innovative thought processes will challenge your belief system. This is why I am passionate about what I do and hope to make a difference in your life and your family's future.

My family celebrates my Father's life

As I study towards my Masters in Ayurvedic Medicine and Perfect HeaIth path of wellness, I will be sharing what I learn and how it can help you feel and live better. The result for me is that I have been 100% illness free now for 5 years and I keep having results that are life changing. I will be posting more specifics on many different issues that will help you make better choices. You can be happier!

Your life is valuable and worth investing in with love and knowledge.

A Little More About Me


Thank you for coming by and learning more! I would like to share a little about me before going further. I was originally born in the absolutely beautiful city of Ann Arbor, home of the University of Michigan and the Original Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. I traveled and was raised all over the state from Grosse Pointe, Detroit, Traverse City, Lake Charlevoix and all the way up to the cold of Lake Superior to our family cabin in Blackjack, located in the Upper Peninsula, where my grandmother and our Finnish relatives taught us about saunas and skinny dipping! It was a great place to grow up, learn all kinds of sports, water skiing, sail and motor boating, snow skiing, horseback riding, dance, music and biking. I began my advanced education at the U of M at a very young age to study medical illustration and fine art, before my family moved to the great wide open, clear blue sky, mountain filled, southwest.

Go Blue!

Tucson, Arizona has been my home for many years, where I have loved traveling all over the state to Flagstaff, Sedona, Amado, Tubac, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Nogales, Oak Creek Canyon and all the lakes. My favorite water spot being Canyon Lake where I used to go boating with my Dad. Another favorite home was when we were part of the IBM family in San Jose, California; often visiting a favorite city of mine, San Francisco. One of the really neat things I get to do now is learn about and visit all kinds of great locations meeting some incredible people. I love San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Austin, Manhattan, New York, Toronto, Seattle, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Mexico City and Chicago.   

Miss boating with my Dad

My friends call me Jilly and I grew up in a family of self made men and women who owned their own medical practices and businesses. Our family is made up of dentists, wellness professionals, physicians, ministers and artists. This includes my incredible grandmother, Helen Vitali Jesson, who spoke eight languages and traveled all over the world to Russia and China. I am the eldest of many cousins and have family all over the globe. It is such a pleasure and joy to hook up with relatives in London, Canada, Finland, Italy, Scotland, South America and more! 

Sadly, both my parents, in laws and three of my grandparents are now passed away and my mother's father is in his 100's now living in Colorado. Dealing with the deaths of so many I love has been life changing and renewing at the same time. Taking care of them while they were ill, dealing with the horrific health care system and letting them go changes everything.

My Mom and Dad loved Michigan

Because I love and am passionate about so many things I call myself a New Age Renaissance Women. It is difficult to put it in a nutshell. I am a talented artist and designer, writer, media guru and geek who gets excited about technology, branding and packaging. My background includes being long time successful multi-media executive who loves raising revenue, smart thinking and creativity. 

I spearheaded the launch of many established TV, newspaper and car dealer websites; partnering with successful national and international interactive advertising brand campaigns. I know what products and people have the right stuff to be successful.

The bold color and photography I use for my art, and documenting the huge world shift that is happening now, is combined with a very spiritual and deep understanding. I have been studying health and wellness all my life; reading every single medical publication I could get my hands on since I could first read my father's Journal of the American Medical Association.

God has put all my experience and talents in a direction of helping others as he has helped me through the healing power of Ayurveda. A lifetime of chronic illness, which affected all the things I love to do, is now completely gone and I will share more on how in upcoming posts.

I have accomplished many things, but I am most excited about starting my education in Perfect Health by pursuing my goal of a Master's in Ayurvedic Medicine and helping people feel better. My own business has always been what has given me joy and happiness and I absolutely love being able to choose who is in my life. I am surrounded by the best people I have ever worked with, sharing the tools of financial and health freedom. We are helping family's open their minds to find the love, desire, health and prosperity they deserve through mind, body, spirit healing.  

The philanthropic arm of my company is also very powerful. We give to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital  and we have a focus on eliminating the abuse that affects children, seniors and animals. Animals have always been huge in my life and I have a house full!

I love my friends, sharing and cooking in my kitchen, being outside on the patio and in the garden, shopping for good food, eating well, reading wonderful books, painting, designing jewelry, yoga, modern dance, meditation, walking my dogs in the mountain air and listening to all kinds of music. A happy day is filled with art, fashion and film, sitting at a bistro having fun anywhere in the world with friends and family!

Namaste and Love, Jilly

Life Changing

Dear Friends,

It is a joy to meet you and thank you for stopping by to visit. My blog is about making your life more delicious, creative, passionate and fun. I will be sharing my journey as I have brought the ancient science of Ayurveda into my life and changed my world. I have passed through the wall of pain, fog and prescription drugs by going back to nature. Most people have no awareness of this new cutting edge research. Western medicine has completely cut off the wisdom that God placed on this earth and inside our bodies.

You now ask "What is Ayurveda?"

Ayurveda is the foundation for all medicine that pre-dates everything, yes everything.

Namaste and Love,

Having a blast with friends!
