When you google Bonnie’s Balms online Andrew Skurka’s Blog pops up. Why? He is sponsored by National Geographic. Mr Skurka has been trash mouthing me and my business since 2016. He recommended Bonnie’s Balms Healing Salve in the National Geographic Gear Guide 2016 & the Outside Magazine 2016. I briefly (1 year) supplied him with a case of Healing Salve every 4-5 months during that year. Andrew has taken to slandering me as much as he can online and has been punishing me now for 3 years. His posts about me are not true, narcissistic and down right hateful.
I honestly wish he had never discovered my products. He will not remove any of his posts from his blog about me. It has damaged my online presence I’d worked so hard to build now for 12 years. He is mean person and a jackass. I pray he does not get injured and loses his livelihood as I almost did. As a Hiking Guide injuries like mine would have ruined him, as he has tried so hard to ruin me.
What happened in to me 2016
I got hurt in March – herniated disc and a torn rotator cuff from being smacked around one night by my last serious boyfriend. Needless to say I moved out the next day and began healing my body as fast as possible.
For 2 months I was unable to lift my arms to manufacture Bonnie’s Balms. The injury almost made me fold up and lose my company. I was a very depressed during this time in my life.
Upon recovery from that, 2 black widow spiders bit me on my thigh. I had 2 heart attacks from those bites and ended up with 2 serious DVT’s in my thighs, and 20 odd blood clots in my right lung from the black widow spider bites.
I was so sick my doctor told me to call my children and say my goodbyes. I could hardly breathe and would just lay on my bed and cry and ask god for a second chance.
During all of 2016 until Sept of 2018 I was also going through a very nasty divorce from my exhusband Richard Squire, founder of the Breckenridge Brewery. I was severely depressed over the pain of the negativity failing on may levels.
That being said, it’s taken me 3 years to heal and get my health back through blood thinners and enzymes that eat blood clots. My health has been back to full steam since October of 2018. I apologize to everyone for being sick and unable to help you feel better. Honestly I was using all my effort to push forward and regain my health.
When I got injured I refunded all the money to every customer who had ordered Bonnie’s Balms because I could not manufacture any medicine to send to them. I also refunded Andrew Skurka his money back on a case of 36 Healing Salves.
Andrew Skurka tried to duplicate my formula for Bonnie’s Balms Healing Salve and failed miserably. (He says this in blog, all proud to have tried to attempt it)
I’ve never met this man, nor do I want to ever. I would however love some help in making him remove me and my company from his blog. He never paid one bill in 30 days net like he was invoiced at all. Slow pay…. The one time I asked him to order the product online, I couldn’t fill the order. So he was refunded.
In November of 2016 I moved to Palisade, Colorado to a lower altitude to recover my health. Hired a young lady to help manufacture so I could send all the customers I’d refunded money to their orders anyway, so they could still benefit from my medicine. Sent apologies to everyone and my customers were happy I’m alive and still making my formula’s. My young assistant sent 50 of these orders to the wrong customers, so I called and emailed those customers and apologized again and sent them the correct formula’s. Fired the young lady and started to manufacture again solo. It really hurt me inside to have failed my customers and to have been unable to help them heal and feel better.
Today is August 2, 2019. Bonnie’s Balms has a new Store Front located at 309 w 8th Street Suite 5, Palisade, Colorado 81526. I opened the store July 1st, 2019. My company is running strong and has 1,000’s of customers. These wonderful people are all glad I’m alive and here to help them feel better. My path is to heal others. Nothing and no one is going to prevent this from happening ever again unless I die. Which I don’t plan on doing for at least another 40 years.
Bonnie’s Balms is available through Amazon FBA and on my website at Https://PainReliefShop.Store. I changed the website address to try to deflect Andrew Skurka’s stupid blog posts. It didn’t work. He still pops up when you google Bonnie’s Balms on the first page. My lawyers told me it would cost $25,000 in legal fee’s to make him go away. I’m not going to spend that money on him. He is not worth it.
However, I am setting the record straight now. If you know him make sure and tell him what a jerk he is. Taking advantage of a deathly sick woman when she was almost dying.
God has a purpose for me. I answer only to him. My recipe’s come to me in my dreams. Healing others is my path, from which I will not falter.
Thank you for reading my blog and believing in me and my medicine.
Rub Bonnie’s Balms where you hurt, feel better!
