Let Me Tell You!

I first want to let you know, when I (Juliana) post anything on health, fitness, recipes, they are NOT Kim approved!  I don’t know half of what she does and I am learning so much!!  Also, when we tell you anything about supplements,etc., it is for knowledge only!!!  We are not RECOMMENDING anything!  That is for your doctor alone to do and you should see your doctor before doing ANYTHING!!   I have not even had a chemistry class in my life, if that tells you anything!!   

With that being said I want to tell you about something I discovered yesterday at the health food and vitamin store!  As you all know, since the beta blocker I have really struggled with my weight!  I know that blood pressure and weight gain are related and I also knew just losing 20 pounds would definitely help me!  At the health food and vitamin store I had heard of Garcinia Cambogia.  I decided to check into it more.  After talking to their supplement lady, I decided to try it. 

It was my mother’s birthday, PRAISE GOD!!!  As you all know she has had 2 near death experiences with her heart since last August, and we celebrated another year!  GLORY TO GOD!!  That being said, we took her out to eat and I took one of the capsules.  I ate 2 rolls, half of a steak, and green beans and a salad.  Any other time this would have put 2-3 pounds on me!  This morning I WAS 3 POUNDS LIGHTER!!  This has not happened to me since I have been on the beta blocker because they slow your metabolism down, and sometimes shut it down, which is what happened to me according to my doctor.

I found out if you don’t diet you will lose about 2 pounds per week!  BUT, if you do diet and exercise  (which is what I have chosen to do), some have lost up to 7 pounds per week!  I AM NOT RECOMMENDING YOU DO THIS, but it doesn’t hurt to know about it, right?  I am simply telling you what it did for me so you can research it out if you would like to and check with your doctor!  I am thrilled and actually feel better! 

You can google it and find out more.   I learned most health food stores do carry it!  🙂

Blessings to you, precious reader!   Juliana

Keeping Your Frequency High

 

Today let’s talk about frequencies. It was so weird to me when I first started learning about our body’s frequency and how important it was to keep it on a normal level to sustain health. I kept asking myself, “Is this Godly? Is this some “way out there” scientific thing?” But then I put all of the pieces together and it started making PERFECT sense. And here’s what I figured out…

 1.   God created the world, He spoke it into existence.
 Genesis 1:11,12

11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

2.   God’s words spoke life into EVERY living thing.

3.   And EVERY living thing has a frequency.

4.   When prayer and essential oils are combined, the frequency is DOUBLED!

 Our bodies have measurable frequencies (vibrational motion) recorded in hertz (Hz), and you’ve probably heard of the terms kilohertz (kHz) & megahertz (MHz). Everything “living” has a frequency that can be measured.

The normal healthy body is said to have a frequency of 62-78 Hz.

At about 42 Hz you can become susceptible to cancer, and at 25 Hz, death begins.

Bruce Tainio, a plant breeder and microbiologist of Tainio Technology in Washington, developed the first frequency monitor to measure biofrequencies in plants and essential oils. He determined that when the frequencies dropped, the body’s immune system is compromised, and illness may be allowed to invade.

For example, processed and poor quality food, pollutants, and toxins which have a lower frequencies will lower the frequency of the body towards a disease state with each exposure.

Canned food is reported to have a frequency of ZERO.

Why? Because the energy, or “life force” of the food has been processed right out of it. It’s been said that just holding a cup of coffee can lower a body frequency by about 8 Hz. Drinking it lowers it even more.

Impressively, Bruce Tainio’s machine was certified 100% accurate and is still used today in the agriculture industry after beginning to realize the negative effects of chemicals being used by the agriculture community back in the 1960’s.

 There is a subtle bio-energy that flows through all organic life. It goes by many names and is sometimes referred to as Chi or life force. This energy is expressed as an electromagnetic vibrational frequency – and pure essential oils have the highest frequencies of any measured natural substance.

 

For example, here are the average frequencies of some of the therapeutic grade essential oils that have been measured:

  • Rose (Rosa damascene)…………………320 MHz
  • Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)……..118 MHz
  • Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)…………….105 MHz
  • Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)…..105 MHz
  • Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma)…………98 MHz
  • Aloes/Sandalwood (Santalum album)……96 MHz
  • Angelica (Angelica archangelica)………..85 MHz
  • Peppermint (Mentha peperita)…………..78 MHz
  • Galbanum (Ferula gummosa)……………..56 MHz
  • Basil (Ocimum basilicum)………………….52 MHz

Effects of Outside Influences on Body Frequency

Based on his studies, researcher Nikola Tesla said that, if we could eliminate certain outside frequencies that interfered in our bodies, we would have greater resistance toward disease. 

Pathogens have a low frequency. Pollutants – both particulate and radiation (EMF) – lower a healthy frequency.  Processed and canned food having a frequency of zero can greatly diminish a person’s own frequency. 

Even thoughts and feelings have a vibratory quality that forms a measurable frequency. A negative mental state can lower a person’s frequency by 10-12 MHz. Likewise, a substance or influencing factor – such as thoughts, emotions, and frequency devices – in our internal and external environments can also serve to raise our frequencies. For example, a positive mental attitude, prayer or meditation can raise it by 10-15 MHz.

Different types of frequencies can have a chaotic or a harmonizing effect on our own systems. When something vibrates at many dissonant frequencies, it produces “chaotic or incoherent frequencies.” (David Stewart, The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple).

For example, all of the electrical devices in your home – lamps, television, radio, phone, microwave – emit electromagnetic vibrational frequencies that are incoherent and chaotic. Their effect is to fracture the human electrical field.

By contrast, Dr. Rife’s frequency generator and most naturally occurring substances –including essential oils – have coherent frequencies that resonate harmoniously with the electrical field of the human body.

The Healing Process and the Subtle Energy Nature of Essential Oils

The human body vibrating within its normal vibratory range between 62 and 68 MHz is considered in a state of health. But energy disturbances in the subtle bodies will actually precede the appearance of disease and illness in the physical body.

The normally harmonious coherent frequencies of the body easily go out of “tune” when a person experiences physical or emotional stress. A blockage of the flow of life energy – characterized by inflammation, irritation and illness – can result. When the human frequency range drops below the norm of 62 megahertz, this is when abnormal processes can begin to develop.

When disease and illness are present, they may manifest as chemical imbalances. But underlying this is an electromagnetic imbalance that has altered the specific vibrational frequencies of molecules, cells, tissues and organs within the body.

Properly “retuning” the body to its original frequency brings it into balance and restores its natural harmonic resonance – illness either doesn’t manifest or is resolved.

Dr. Richard Gerber MD, author of Vibrational Medicine, tells us that one of the best ways we can “frequency-specific subtle energy in the form of vibrational medicines.”

And researcher Jim Oschman, PhD, who wrote Energy Medicine, refers to natural substances from the plant kingdom he calls “energetic pharmacology”. Therapeutic grade essential oils produce coherent frequencies that are naturally tuned to the health of our bodies. Pharmaceuticals and synthetic oils do not.

The intention of this healing process is to provide the correct frequency that will bring the body back to a state of coherence, to a state of equilibrium. Terry Friedman, in his book, Freedom Through Health tells us that raising our vibrational frequency aids in “restoring health to the body, clarity to the mind and attunement to the spirit.”

By applying an essential oil with a particular frequency to the human body – through the principle of entrainment – the oil’s higher frequency will raise the vibratory quality of that individual. When several oils are blended together, each having a different MHz frequency, a frequency will emerge that may be higher or lower than the various components. The therapeutic properties create special vibrational remedies capable of healing or rebalancing the body/mind/soul/spirit.

And because each oil has a specific frequency, and our organs and body systems and the nutrients needed to maintain optimum health each have their specific frequencies, the oil’s electrical affinity to these components of our bodies will enhance and support these organs and body systems, and will aid in the assimilation of nutrients.

Essential oils in the higher frequency ranges tend to influence the emotions. EOs in the lower frequencies have more effect on structural and physical changes, including cells, hormones, and bones, as well as viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

Essential oils don’t resonate with the toxins in our bodies. This incompatibility is what helps eliminate the toxins from our systems. Neither do they resonate with negative emotions. So they can help dislodge forgotten traumas by surfacing them in our consciousness where we can deal with them and let them go.

Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live. I believe that the chemistry and frequencies of essential oils have the ability to help man maintain the optimal frequency to the extent that disease cannot exist.

 Gary Young of Young Living Essential Oils

The beauty of using therapeutic grade essential oils to restore coherent healthy vibrational frequencies to the body is that they are:

  • Affordable
  • Accessible
  • Effective
  • Versatile

Essential oils offer us a natural way to restore our body’s healthy electromagnetic vibrational frequency. The elegance of their holism allows for easy functionality in our daily lives. Their constant subtle presence gently resonates with our body’s electrical fields aiding and restoring harmonic health and well-being on all levels.

Essential Oil Use And Effect On The Body

They’ve been around for thousands of years. Most notably the Three Wise Men bringing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Baby Jesus. Frankincense has a frequency of about 147, and Myrrh is about 108.

Essential Oil frequencies range from 52 Hz – 320 Hz, the highest being that of Rose Oil.  Clove Oil shines above the crowd too by being noted for having the most antioxidant power in nature. It’s the “therapeutic grade” oils that are most effective in obtaining results you are hoping for.

Just as poor quality food and toxins lower the body’s frequency, quality Essential Oils elevate the body’s frequency to a more healthy state.

Oils used by any method will have some effect on your energy level.

Smell or Aromatic Use of Oils:

Smells travel through the mucus lining of the nose and are then carried by nerve cells to a place in theLimbic System,” the “seat” of your emotions.  This occurs in the form of electrical impulses. The oil molecules themselves don’t actually enter the brain, but the impulses do. The resultant smell is from a combination of chemical manifestation and of energy or frequency (medicinal quality) emitted by the object you are smelling. The Limbic System is directly connected to other parts of the brain that control Heart rate, blood pressure, memory, breathing, stress reactions and hormones.

Topical Use of Oils:

When applying oils topically, it’s sometimes recommended to use a carrier oil, such as virgin olive oil or my favorite, organic, unrefined coconut oil. Essential oils meant for topical, or “neat” application should be identified. Some used for muscle or joint soreness can be applied right to the site, and can be felt within seconds of application. For oils that help promote restful sleep or relaxation such as Lavender, a good area to apply it is to the soles of the feet where the pores are large and it absorbs well.

Internal Use of Oils:

The ONLY oils I recommend for internal use is YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS. They are the

only oils that are pure enough to ingest. Oils meant internal use, such as Lemon, Peppermint or Thieves are also very therapeutic to the digestive system and can help in detox and elimination of bacteria or parasites. A drop or two in purified water or in an empty capsule is enough to reap the benefits.

A Holy Oil…

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image15939175Young Living Essential Oils offers 2 types of Frankincense. Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) and Sacred Frankincense. This essential oil comes from the Boswellia sacra  frankincense tree and is distilled at the Young Living distillery in Oman.

 Frankincense Oil, Olibanum Oil or Oil of Lebanon is considered a holy oil in the Middle East and we know that it was given to Christ at the time of his birth. Frankincense essential oil is mentioned 22 times in the Bible. The uses and benefits of Frankincense date back way before the time of Christ to the Egyptians and Sumerians.

 The Egyptians used it for incense, skin care, stomach ailments and kohl.

Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil, Oman Frankincense or Omani hojari is showing anti-tumoral and anti-cancer activity according to new research by Dr. Mahmoud Sunhail.

 It is one of the rarest essential oils of the world as this species of frankincense tree only grows in Oman. It is considered the most precious spiritual oil of the Middle East; and as such has not been available outside of Oman for purchase until recently..

Although many texts cite that the species of Boswellia carterii and Boswellia sacra are identical, chemists and historians would disagree; as well as Saudi Royals and Oman Officials! It is believed that Boswellia sacra is the ancient species of which the oil of biblical times was created.

Although the chemistry of the essential oils is slightly different the same medicinal properties and uses of frankincense oil apply. However, studies are finding that the anti-cancerous effects are far greater than the Boswelli carterii species. It is actually dissolving or digesting the nucleus or “brain center” of cancer cells!!!

Today, we know through Chemistry that Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes that stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions. It also helps the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands that produce many of the important hormones in our body. And it helps strengthen the immune system by increasing leukocyte activity.

For years Frankincense was known to the holistic world to assist with cancer because of many of the properties listed in the previous paragraph. But recently in 2010 Frankincense has made the news again saying that the medical community is starting to understand why it is useful in combating cancer!

It was interesting that the BBC article stated that Frankincense “closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.” Those using essential oil for years have known through Organic Chemistry that oils heal through a “PMS model” as presented by Dr. David Stewart.

The PMS Model consists of Phenols, Sesquiterpenes and Monoterpenes. Phenols clean the receptor sites of the cell; Sesquiterpenes delete bad information from cellular memory (DNA) and monoterpenes awaken or restore the correct information stored in the cell at a DNA level.

What are the Plant Properties? Anti-cancerous, anti-catarrhal, anti-depressant, anti-infectious, anti-tumoral, antiseptic, expectorant, immune-stimulant, muscle relaxant and sedative. What are the Documented Uses and Benefits of Frankincense? Asthma, cancer, depression, infection (colds, coughs, pneumonia, respiratory, staph, strep), immune stimulant, inflammation, meditation, muscles, nervous conditions, spiritual connection, supports the nervous system, stress, ulcers and vertigo.

How do I use it?

Use NEAT (undiluted). Then,

• Apply several drops (2-4) on location

• Apply to chakras/vitaflex points

• Directly inhale • Diffuse, or

• Dietary Supplement (Only Young Living Essential Oils can be ingested!!!)

Health Benefits of Frankincense:

Anti Septic & Disinfectant: Frankincense Oil is good as an anti septic. Even the fume or smoke obtained on its burning has anti septic and disinfectant qualities and eliminates the germs in the whole place affected with fume. It can be applied on wounds without any harm or side effect to protect them from tetanus and being septic. It is equally good on internal wounds and protects them from infections.

Astringent: The astringent property of Frankincense Oil has many benefits. It strengthens gums, hair roots, tones and lifts skin, contracts muscles, intestines and blood vessels, thereby giving protection from untimely fall of tooth and hair, wrinkles, loss of firmness of intestines and muscles of abdominal area and limbs associated with age and above all, helps stop flow of blood from wounds and cuts. This astringent property also helps cure diarrhea of certain types.

Carminative: Frankincense oil drives away gas and also prevents its formation. This removal of gases from intestines also gives relief from associated problems such as stomach ache, pain in the abdominal region and chest, abnormal sweating, uneasiness, indigestion and many such.

Cicatrisant: This is an interesting property of Frankincense Oil. It makes the scars and after marks of boils, acne and pox etc. on the skin to fade away. This includes fading of stretch marks and surgery marks, fat cracks etc. associated with pregnancy and delivery.

Cytophylactic: Being a Cytophylactic, Frankincense Oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy.

Digestive: Suffering from indigestion due to that turkey last night? A patient of chronic indigestion and acidity? Fed up of those antacids? Then you are the right person to try Frankincense Oil. I am sure you will benefit. This oil has digestive properties without any side effects. It facilitates digestion the way a medicine should, not like the common antacids which only suppress the symptoms. This oil speeds up secretion of digestive juices (gastric juices, bile and acids) in the stomach and facilitates movement of food stuff in the intestines by stimulating peristaltic motion, thereby aiding all round digestion of food. Its other properties, like being a carminative also helps in digestion.

Diuretic: If you thought that Lasix and its variants were the only drugs that could help you lose water from the body through urination, you were wrong. They may be instant, but not at all safe. Here is a natural and safe alternative. Yes! The Frankincense Essential Oil. It promotes urination and helps you lose some extra water, fats, sodium, uric acid and some other toxins from the body, with the added advantage of lowering blood pressure. The best part about this is that this oil is totally safe and has no adverse side effects.

Emenagogue: Opens up obstructed and delayed menstruation and delays menopause. It also helps curing other symptoms associated with menses and Post Menstrual Syndrome, such as pain in the abdominal region, nausea, headache, fatigue etc.

Expectorant: Drives away cough and phlegm deposited in the respiratory tracts and lungs. Also gives relief in bronchitis and congestion of nasal tract, larynx and pharynx, bronchi and lungs. It also gives relief from body pain, headache, toothache and rise in body temperature associated with cold.

Sedative: Frankincense Oil is very effective as a sedative. It induces a feeling of mental peace, relaxation, satisfaction and spirituality. It also awakens insight, makes you introvert and ends anxiety, anger and stress.

Tonic: Frankincense Oil tones and boosts health and therefore is a tonic. It tones up all the systems operating in the body, including respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system and excretory system and also gives strength by aiding absorption of nutrients in the body. It strengthens immune system too and keeps you strong and safe for long.

Uterine: This oil is very good for uterine health. Since it regulates production of estrogen hormone, it reduces the chances of post-menopause tumor or cyst formation in the uterus, also known as uterine cancer. In pre-menopause period too, it keeps uterus healthy by maintaining proper menstrual cycles.

Vulnerary: Just apply a diluted solution of this oil on wounds, or use it blended with a skin cream, and get your wounds heal faster and protected from infections. This oil is equally beneficial in healing internal wounds, cuts and ulcers.

Other Benefits: It keeps skin healthy and young, relieves pain associated with rheumatism, arthritis etc. It helps heal boils, rotten wounds, acne, circulatory problems, insomnia and inflammation.

 

This essential oil amazes me! I am in awe at how is has helped and healed in my own family and I want to share it with you! I am offering it to you at my wholesale price this month so that you may find it easier to purchase and reap the benefits yourself.

Organic is WAY too expensive, right?

 If you haven’t jumped on the “organic bandwagon”, you are probably thinking all of us who have, are a little crazy. Well, I totally understand. I used to be one of those who thought the Organic label was just another way for companies to make an extra buck. Maybe more like, a lot of bucks, because organic stuff is EXPENSIVE! But here’s the deal, after I started my garden last year and learned the details of how to grow a plant from fertilizer to seed to germination to fruit and veggies, I quickly changed my mind. Have you ever read the backs of the bottles of regular garden pesticides? Do you realize how hard it is to wash that stuff off? And even if you wash it really, really good, it’s still in the roots and still inside the fruit or vegetable. There are so many statistic out there concerning human consumption of herbicides and pesticides and I have the hardest time knowing that, and then putting it on the table for my family of 6 to eat. And let’s not even go into all the hormones and steroids they feed animals that we eat. Yes, it is more expensive, and if you do an organic garden like me, it takes a lot more time and research, but it is so, so worth it.

 Here’s some things we do different to offset the cost of buying organic.

  1. Eat less meat per meal. I make a lot of soup, casseroles and stir-frys. There is no huge hamburger patty (unless it’s a bean burger) or giant chicken breast on our plates at dinner. It’s not cost effective and it’s just too much meat! I can feed our family of 6 a super awesome meal using 2 organic chicken breasts or 1/2 to 3/4 lb organic ground beef.
  2. Shop your local Farmer’s Market. Not all things at a Farmer’s Markets are organic, homegrown or even cheap but if you keep looking, I bet you will find one that suits your family’s needs. Also, buying fruits and veggies that are in season can be much more cost effective.
  3. Grow a garden. Even if it’s just an herb garden or a container garden. I’ve seen some really successful container gardens done by people who have little to no yard.
  4. Find a person who sells their own farm eggs. Eggs are very nutritious. And if you have connections, they are cheaper than buying at the store. They have minerals and vitamins that you can’t get anywhere else. Eggs have been known to help fight Alzheimer’s disease. They are packed with protein but they have to be “real” eggs… not store-bought. 
  5. Stop buying packaged snacks and ready-made meals. Yes, they may seem easier to prepare for a very busy family but not only will you be spending more time off work in the doctor’s office, you will also are paying more for what you get. There are some amazing recipes and ideas out there on the internet to help you manage cooking, and feeding your family on the run, in a healthy way… believe me, if I can do it, you can do it. For example, make a batch of organic granola bars on a Saturday afternoon. Make enough to last the week, for easy grab-and-go. It will take you maybe 45 mins to figure it all out and less each time you prepare them. For the cost, you will get a ton more doing it yourself. Another great healthy snack is hard-boiled eggs. My boys love them. Lots of nutrition and good for the brain!
  6. One word… Costco! I can not begin to explain how much I LOVE this store. It carries lots and lots of organic products in bulk at an awesome price. It’s my once-a-month stop shop. Since I started shopping there, I make little to no extra stops at the store throughout the week and our pantry is stocked with more variety of organic products.
  7. Use your crock pot. Even if you use it to just cook the chicken you will shred and put on salad or sweet potato later that evening, it saves time and gets one part of dinner done in advance.  There are tons and tons of recipes online for crock pots. Just don’t use the ones that include cream soups or weird packaged things… keep it real. 🙂
  8. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination. I love finding recipes I can alter. If I find one I think will be a hit, I immediately figure out how I can alter it to fit with the things I have or am willing to feed my family. And there’s nothing wrong with a good ol’ cleaning-out-the-fridge meal. This morning I emptied my fridge with every single veggie I could find. I had a few of this and a 1/2 of that, and I made vegetable soup in the crock pot. I added some kale and cilantro, a can of organic diced tomatoes. I may bake some homemade grain free bread tonight to go with it… BOOM! Done. 🙂 Healthy, packed with nutrition, organic, and the best part… easy. (and nothing was wasted!)

 Here’s a wonderful chart showing just what exactly is the difference between organic and non.  

Conventional Organic
Apply chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth. Apply natural fertilizers, such as manure or compost, to feed soil and plants.
Spray synthetic insecticides to reduce pests and disease. Spray pesticides from natural sources; use beneficial insects and birds, mating disruption or traps to reduce pests and disease.
Use synthetic herbicides to manage weeds. Use environmentally-generated plant-killing compounds; rotate crops, till, hand weed or mulch to manage weeds.
Give animals antibiotics, growth hormones and medications to prevent disease and spur growth. Give animals organic feed and allow them access to the outdoors. Use preventive measures — such as rotational grazing, a balanced diet and clean housing — to help minimize disease.

 http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/organic-food/NU00255

 

Also, take note that “Natural” and “Organic” are NOT the same thing! You may see “natural” and other terms such as “all natural,” “free-range” or “hormone-free” on food labels. These descriptions must be truthful, but don’t confuse them with the term “organic.” Only foods that are grown and processed according to USDA organic standards can be labeled organic.

 One more reason to buy organic:

Organic regulations ban or severely restrict the use of food additives, processing aids (substances used during processing, but not added directly to food) and fortifying agents commonly used in nonorganic foods, including preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colorings and flavorings, and monosodium glutamate.

Your healing is right around the corner!

 

 

 As you know, I am an absolute true believer that God can HEAL us (not relieve us for the moment) but actually HEAL us through prayer, diet and essential oils. I’m not talking just the sniffles or some toe fungus. I’m talking slipped discs, arthritis, diabetes, cancer. Yes, I said CANCER! Did you know, essential oils are the life blood of plants, breathed by God? They are intelligent and have every ability to HEAL! You can be healed of the issues you are dealing with, I promise you. And I wouldn’t just say that if I didn’t believe it whole heartedly. Those are very strong words and you’re probably thinking… “Sure, you have an oil that can heal my fibromyalgia?… the doctor’s say there is no cure!!! Whatever.” But I am telling you, God wants you HEALED and you CAN be, through prayer and therapeutic-grade essential oils!

 Now, don’t go jumping off your meds and bathing yourself in vegetable oil. If you are dealing with a serious illness, there is a process to the healing. But PLEASE (oh, please!) read the health benefits below and know that there are the most amazing testimonies out there and your healing is just waiting to happen!

 

20 Health Benefits

OF USING THERAPEUTIC-GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS

  1. AFFECT EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING: The aroma of therapeutic oils triggers physiological and psychological responses: lift moods, aid in reducing “the lows”, increase alertness, calm anxiousness, and clears memory .
  2. SUPPORT IMMUNE FUNCTION: Some therapeutic essential oil constituents mimichuman immunoglobulin, elevate lymphocytes and stimulate our natural immune system.
  3. SUPPLY POTENT ANTIMICROBIALS: Research supports that therapeutic oils are highly effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, and even the “superbug” (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus~MRSA). Bacteria do not mutate in the presence of therapeutic oils.
  4. REDUCE INFLAMMATION: Caused by bacteria, poor diet, injuries, an over-burden of toxins, hormonal imbalances, inflammation is at the root of most degenerative diseases.
  5. EASE STRESS AND ANXIETY: Excessive stress, tension, and anxiety are the physiological responses to our “thoughts and beliefs” and trigger unresolved emotions. This phenomenon is often associated with chronic illnesses and imbalance of body-systems. Therapeutic oils are known to soothe, bringing peaceful thoughts, quieting thoughts, and calming the physical body.
  6. DECREASE INSOMNIA: Reseach studies support that lavender promotes sleep,enhances relaxation and decreases anxiety. However, it must be therapeutic-grade Lavandula angustifolia. Other oils also are effective sleep aids.
  7. PROVIDE NATURAL PAIN RELIEF: Massage into sore, tired muscles; use with a warm compress; apply to brain stem, deeply inhale.
  8. REJUVENATE SKIN: Used for thousands of years to restore, rejuvenate, and improve damaged, wrinkled skin. Now used to clear acne, clogged pores, eczema, dark spots, and stretch marks.
  9. PROTECT AGAINST COLDS AND INFLUENZA: With antimicrobial actions, therapeutic oils protect against colds, flu, and aid respiratory tissues. Inhale oils, put in hot tea, put in empty capsules to aid lungs, ears, and throat problems.
  10. SOOTHE DIGESTIVE DISORDERS: Effective relief for nausea, indigestion, heartburn, gas, diarrhea, irritable bowel. Rub on abdominal area; take internally in water or empty capsules.
  11. IMPROVE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM: Therapeutic essential oils oxygenate and “cleanse” cells. As healthier blood carries oxygen and nutrients to healthier cells, the vascular system is free of clots, arteriosclerosis, and broken veins.
  12. PROMOTE OPTIMAL ENDOCRINE FUNCTION: This delicate system includes 9 glands that interconnect with organs, hormones, and each other to maintain our body’s balance and metabolism in nearly all functions. Stress and imbalance in the endocrine system is at the root of many western culture degenerative diseases.
  13. SUPPORT THE URINARY SYSTEM: For over 70 years, oils have been recommended for aid in kidney, bladder, and urinary infections. Rub oils over the kidney area; take internally in water or empty capsules.
  14. SOOTHE BURNS, SUNBURNS, MINOR CUTS and SCRAPES: The power of lavender to heal burns was “re-discovered” pre-WWI. Therapeutic oils are antiseptic and cleansing and can be very effective in healing.
  15. SUPPORT MUSCLES AND BONES: When overworked, stressed or burdened with toxins, muscle tissue and bone/joints become stiff and painful. Oils applied to areas give support, reduce inflammation and heat.
  16. PROVIDE ORAL AND DENTAL CARE: Bacteria in the mouth can cause disease in other parts of the body, including the heart. The therapeutic oils in oral care products by Young Living kill microbes associated with tooth decay, gum disease, systemic infections and unpleasant mouth odor.
  17. NOURISH AND STRENGTHEN HAIR: Essential oils make excellent hair care ingredients to rejuvenate hair, encourage hair growth, and cleanse follicles. Young Living personal care products do not contain harmful toxic ingredients (SLS, propylene glycol) that are stored in fatty tissue of the heart, liver, lungs, and brain.
  18. IMPROVE MENTAL CLARITY: Therapeutic oils have a profound impact on keeping the mind alert and focused thereby decreasing forgetfulness, dementia, and “brain fog”.
  19. PROTECT AGAINST CANCER: Numerous studies show promising results for the use of therapeutic essential oils to combat specific types of cancer and that in the presence of the constituents of certain oils cancer cells cannot multiply.
  20. PROVIDE SAFE AND NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS: Research points to common household cleaners as a suspected link to the 55% increase in cancer (specifically for women who work only in the home). The powerful yet safe antimicrobial activities of essential oils make them a natural choice as cleaners and disinfectants.

This is a long one today, folks, but so so worth it! 🙂

We have all heard, Aspartame is NOT good for us. Of course the FDA will argue that several tests have been done to confirm that it is OK for human consumption but seriously, it’s in EVERYTHING! Are they considering the fact that we are consuming it everywhere and in everything? AND even if they are, can we really believe the FDA anyway?… I think, NOT! Either way, I am here to say that since I quit consuming 2 heaping spoonfuls of Equal in my morning coffee a day and sprinkling it on my strawberries and what-have-you (about 3 years ago), I have done some research and here’s the break down. I realized I had a bunch of these symptoms, one main one being, memory loss! And I wasn’t the only one noticing it… my whole family was commenting on how I couldn’t remember ANYTHING! Yikes!

 Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure.

 Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include:  

Headaches/migraines
Dizziness Seizures Nausea Numbness

Muscle spasms

Weight gain Rashes Depression

Fatigue

Irritability Tachycardia Insomnia Vision problems Hearing loss
Heart palpitations Breathing difficulties Anxiety attacks Slurred speech Loss of taste
Tinnitus Vertigo Memory loss
Joint pain
 

  

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame:

 

Brain tumors
Multiple sclerosis
Epilepsy
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Parkinson’s disease
Alzheimer’s
Mental retardation
Lymphoma
Birth defects
Fibromyalgia
Diabetes
       

 

What Is Aspartame Made Of?

Aspartic Acid (40 percent of Aspartame)

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate or MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms.

How Aspartate (and Glutamate) Cause Damage

aspartateAspartate and glutamate act as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating the transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate or glutamate in the brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which kill the cells. The neural cell damage that can be caused by excessive aspartate and glutamate is why they are referred to as “excitotoxins.” They “excite” or stimulate the neural cells to death.
Aspartic acid is an amino acid. Taken in its free form (unbound to proteins), it significantly raises the blood plasma level of aspartate and glutamate. The excess aspartate and glutamate in the blood plasma shortly after ingesting aspartame or products with free glutamic acid (glutamate precursor) leads to a high level of those neurotransmitters in certain areas of the brain.

The blood brain barrier (BBB), which normally protects the brain from excess glutamate and aspartate as well as toxins, 1) is not fully developed during childhood, 2) does not fully protect all areas of the brain, 3) is damaged by numerous chronic and acute conditions, and 4) allows seepage of excess glutamate and aspartate into the brain even when intact.

The excess glutamate and aspartate slowly begin to destroy neurons. The large majority (75 percent or more) of neural cells in a particular area of the brain are killed before any clinical symptoms of a chronic illness are noticed. A few of the many chronic illnesses that have been shown to be contributed to by long-term exposure to excitatory amino acid damage include:

Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Parkinson’s disease
ALS
Hypoglycemia
Memory loss
AIDS
Hormonal problems
Dementia
Epilepsy
Brain lesions
Alzheimer’s disease
Neuroendocrine disorders

aspartame effectThe risk to infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with certain chronic health problems from excitotoxins are great. Even the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), which usually understates problems and mimics the FDA party-line, recently stated in a review that:

“It is prudent to avoid the use of dietary supplements of L-glutamic acid by pregnant women, infants, and children. The existence of evidence of potential endocrine responses, i.e., elevated cortisol and prolactin, and differential responses between males and females, would also suggest a neuroendocrine link and that supplemental L-glutamic acid should be avoided by women of childbearing age and individuals with affective disorders.”

Aspartic acid from aspartame has the same deleterious effects on the body as glutamic acid. The exact mechanism of acute reactions to excess free glutamate and aspartate is currently being debated. As reported to the FDA, those reactions include:

 
Headaches/migraines
Fatigue (blocks sufficient
glucose entry into brain)
Anxiety attacks
Nausea
Sleep problems
Depression
Abdominal pains
Vision problems
Asthma/chest tightness

 

One common complaint of persons suffering from the effect of aspartame is memory loss. Ironically, in 1987, G.D. Searle, the manufacturer of aspartame, undertook a search for a drug to combat memory loss caused by excitatory amino acid damage. Blaylock is one of many scientists and physicians who are concerned about excitatory amino acid damage caused by ingestion of aspartame and MSG.

A few of the many experts who have spoken out against the damage being caused by aspartate and glutamate include Adrienne Samuels, Ph.D., an experimental psychologist specializing in research design. Another is Olney, a professor in the department of psychiatry, School of Medicine, Washington University, a neuroscientist and researcher, and one of the world’s foremost authorities on excitotoxins. (He informed Searle in 1971 that aspartic acid caused holes in the brains of mice.)

  

Phenylalanine (50 percent of aspartame) 

Phenylalanine is an amino acid normally found in the brain. Persons with the genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) cannot metabolize phenylalanine. This leads to dangerously high levels of phenylalanine in the brain (sometimes lethal). It has been shown that ingesting aspartame, especially

along with carbohydrates, can lead to excess levels of phenylalanine in the brain even in persons who do not have PKU.

This is not just a theory, as many people who have eaten large amounts of aspartame over a long period of time and do not have PKU have been shown to have excessive levels of phenylalanine in the blood. Excessive levels of phenylalanine in the brain can cause the levels of serotonin in the brain to decrease,

leading to emotional disorders such as depression.

It was shown in human testing that phenylalanine levels of the blood were increased significantly in human subjects who chronically used aspartame.

Even a single use of aspartame raised the blood phenylalanine levels. In his testimony before the U.S. Congress, Dr. Louis J. Elsas showed that high blood phenylalanine can be concentrated in parts of the brain and is especially dangerous for infants and fetuses. He also showed that phenylalanine is metabolized much more efficiently by rodents than by humans.

One account of a case of extremely high phenylalanine levels caused by aspartame was recently published by the Wednesday Journal in an article titled “An Aspartame Nightmare.” John Cook began drinking six to eight diet drinks every day. His symptoms started out as memory loss and frequent headaches. He began to crave more aspartame-sweetened drinks. His condition deteriorated so much that he experienced wide mood swings and violent rages. Even though he did not suffer from PKU, a blood test revealed a phenylalanine level of 80 mg/dl. He also showed abnormal brain function and brain damage. After he kicked his aspartame habit, his symptoms improved dramatically.

As Blaylock points out in his book, early studies measuring phenylalanine buildup in the brain were flawed. Investigators who measured specific brain regions and not the average throughout the brain notice significant rises in phenylalanine levels. Specifically the hypothalamus, medulla oblongata, and corpus striatum areas of the brain had the largest increases in phenylalanine. Blaylock goes on to point out that excessive buildup of phenylalanine in the brain can cause schizophrenia or make one more susceptible to seizures.

Therefore, long-term, excessive use of aspartame may provide a boost to sales of serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as Prozac and drugs to control schizophrenia and seizures.

Methanol a.k.a wood alcohol/poison (10 percent of aspartame)

Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. Some people may remember methanol as the poison that has caused some “skid row” alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin.

The absorption of methanol into the body is sped up considerably when free methanol is ingested. Free methanol is created from aspartame when it is heated to above 86 Fahrenheit (30 Centigrade). This would occur when aspartame-containing product is improperly stored or when it is heated (e.g. as part of a “food” product such as Jello).

methanolMethanol breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde in the body. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin. An EPA assessment of methanol states that methanol “is considered a cumulative poison due to the low rate of excretion once it is absorbed. In the body, methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde and formic acid; both of these metabolites are toxic.” They recommend a limit of consumption of 7.8 mg/day. A one-liter (approx. 1 quart) aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg of methanol. Heavy users of aspartame-containing products consume as much as 250 mg of methanol daily or 32 times the EPA limit.

Symptoms from methanol poisoning include headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities, behavioral disturbances, and neuritis. The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems including misty vision, progressive contraction of visual fields, blurring of vision, obscuration of vision, retinal damage, and blindness. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication and causes birth defects.

Due to the lack of a couple of key enzymes, humans are many times more sensitive to the toxic effects of methanol than animals. Therefore, tests of aspartame or methanol on animals do not accurately reflect the danger for humans. As pointed out by Dr. Woodrow C. Monte, director of the food science and nutrition laboratory at Arizona State University: “There are no human or mammalian studies to evaluate the possible mutagenic, teratogenic or carcinogenic effects of chronic administration of methyl alcohol.”

He was so concerned about the unresolved safety issues that he filed suit with the FDA requesting a hearing to address these issues. He asked the FDA to:

“…[S]low down on this soft drink issue long enough to answer some of the important questions. It’s not fair that you are leaving the full burden of proof on the few of us who are concerned and have such limited resources. You must remember that you are the American public’s last defense. Once you allow usage (of aspartame) there is literally nothing I or my colleagues can do to reverse the course. Aspartame will then join saccharin, the sulfiting agents, and God knows how many other questionable compounds enjoined to insult the human constitution with governmental approval.”

Shortly thereafter, the Commissioner of the FDA, Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., approved the use of aspartame in carbonated beverage. He then left for a position with G.D. Searle’s public relations firm.

It has been pointed out that some fruit juices and alcoholic beverages contain small amounts of methanol. It is important to remember, however, that methanol never appears alone. In every case, ethanol is present, usually in much higher amounts. Ethanol is an antidote for methanol toxicity in humans. The troops of Desert Storm were “treated” to large amounts of aspartame-sweetened beverages, which had been heated to over 86 degrees F in the Saudi Arabian sun. Many of them returned home with numerous disorders similar to what has been seen in persons who have been chemically poisoned by formaldehyde. The free methanol in the beverages may have been a contributing factor in these illnesses. Other breakdown products of aspartame such as DKP (discussed below) may also have been a factor.

In a 1993 act that can only be described as “unconscionable,” the FDA approved aspartame as an ingredient in numerous food items that would always be heated to above 86 degree F (30 degree C).

Diketopiperazine (DKP)

DKP is a byproduct of aspartame metabolism. DKP has been implicated in the occurrence of brain tumors. Olney noticed that DKP, when nitrosated in the gut, produced a compound that was similar to N-nitrosourea, a powerful brain tumor causing chemical. Some authors have said that DKP is produced after aspartame ingestion. I am not sure if that is correct. It is definitely true that DKP is formed in liquid aspartame-containing products during prolonged storage.

G.D. Searle conducted animal experiments on the safety of DKP. The FDA found numerous experimental errors occurred, including “clerical errors, mixed-up animals, animals not getting drugs they were supposed to get, pathological specimens lost because of improper handling,” and many other errors. These sloppy laboratory procedures may explain why both the test and control animals had 16 times more brain tumors than would be expected in experiments of this length.

In an ironic twist, shortly after these experimental errors were discovered, the FDA used guidelines recommended by G.D. Searle to develop the industry-wide FDA standards for good laboratory practices.

DKP has also been implicated as a cause of uterine polyps and changes in blood cholesterol by FDA Toxicologist Dr. Jacqueline Verrett in her testimony before the U.S. Senate.

 With this list, nothing is safe anymore! We MUST read EVERY label! And let me give you some hope in all of this… there is a natural sweetner that is actual GOOD for you and healing. It’s called Stevia. You have probably heard of it… But not the chemically made or produced Stevia… I’m talking about pure, organic Stevia. 

 

 Stevia is a plant that is native to South America. It is probably best known as a source of natural sweeteners. In fact, native people in South America have used stevia as a sweetener for hundreds of years. But the leaves are also used to make medicine.
Stevia is used as a weight loss aid; for treating diabetes, high blood pressure and heartburn; for lowering uric acid levels; for preventing pregnancy; and for increasing the strength of the muscle contractions that pump blood from the heart.
In foods, stevia is used as a non-caloric sweetener and flavor enhancer. Stevia was originally available as a “dietary supplement”

 

 

 Just a couple drops will do ya. And it tastes great! For an awesome alternative to soft drinks, powder drinks or those weird drops you put in your water… try 2 drops Stevia and 3-5 drops of any of the following…

Taking the plunge and changing things up.

 

Let’s face it, eating healthy is not about dieting anymore. It’s about staying healthy and living longer. It’s about quality of life because if you eat the way I used to and most of America does, you are hurting.

 

Here are 10 terrifying stats about how we eat in America:

 

  1. More than 1 billion tons of pesticide products are used each year in the United States alone, many of which are directly sprayed on our food. Pesticides have been linked to a variety of cancers and higher rates of birth defects.

 

2. Americans spend more than $100 billion on fast food each year.

 

3. The average teenage boy in the U.S. gets 10 percent of his daily calories from soda.

 

4. We now have more than double the rate of obesity in American children compared to the 1970s.

 

5. Obesity increased in 16 states last year and didn’t decrease in any state.

 

6. Another 2.6 million people fell below the poverty level last year. This often directly affects their ability to buy healthy food.

 

7. American children get about one quarter of their total vegetable servings in the form of potato chips and French fries.

 

8. We consume an average of 156 pounds of sugar every year.

 

9. Up to 10 billion donuts are consumed each year in the U.S. alone.

 

10. Genetically modified foods are found in up to 80 percent of our packaged foods in the U.S. A Russian study concluded that after three generations of eating GM feed, hamsters lost their ability to reproduce and some even had a rare disorder of hair growing in their mouths. I find that disturbing.

Not just your regular cup of “Joe”

 So I am approaching this issue after much thought and I fully realize you may not like a word I have to say! I’m talking about COFFEE! Most morning drinkers don’t realize it, but those morning cups of “Joe” set our bodies up for a rollercoaster day of highs and lows, only to bottom out at  the point of exhaustion. Just a few hours after consumption, when the artificial  high dies down, many people may reach for more coffee or something sugary to get  another lift, leading to daily fluctuations in energy and alertness, and  possibly to eventual chronic adrenal exhaustion.

 Now, you don’t have to explain your coffee addiction to me. I have not missed a morning without my good friend “Joe” for over 20 years… until 2 weeks ago. And I liked it strong! When people come to my house and drink my coffee, they usually have to really doctor it up or water it down. And I never drank just one cup. All of my mugs are the size of Texas. You could fit 3 cups easy in my favorite mug. Most of the time I would drink 1 1/2 to 2 of those cups throughout the morning, sometimes into the afternoon. You probably don’t make your coffee as strong as mine and you may not even think of drinking that much coffee but just one caffeinated  drink – whether it’s a soft drink, caffeinated tea or coffee – will put your  body on the caffeine rollercoaster. As I began to pay more attention to my body, i noticed that I had a severe sugar craving everyday around 2:00pm. I was tired, cranky, and so worn out! Sometimes I would reach for an afternoon cup of coffee or energy boosting tea. I wasn’t sleeping good at night anymore (and hadn’t been for months) and when I woke in the morning, I felt so groggy until I got some coffee in me.   

 Well, two weeks ago I decided I was done with caffeine. I was done with the junk and sugar I had to put in it to make it taste good. I wanted to feel what it was like to NOT be dependant on coffee.

Well, let me tell ya, for the first 3 days, it did NOT feel so good! I had the most horrible headache I have ever had. My anxiety was creeping up and I was so nauseous. Ugh! But I stuck it out and refused to give in, despite all the advice I got from people around me. That’s when I started researching just what EXACTLY are the side effects of coffee and how is it effecting me.

 When you consume caffeine, the drug begins  its effects by initiating uncontrolled neuron firing in your brain, according to  Stephen Cherniske in his book, Caffeine Blues. This excess neuron  activity triggers your pituitary gland to secrete a hormone that tells your  adrenal glands to produce adrenalin.

Adrenalin is what gives athletes that winning burst of energy and a mother the ability to rescue her child by lifting a car. Adrenalin is also the  source of our “fight-or-flight” response. By  stimulating your adrenal glands to produce adrenalin, caffeine  puts your body in this “fight-or-flight” state, which is useless while you’re  just sitting at your desk. When this adrenal high wears off later, you feel the  drop in terms of fatigue, irritability, headache or confusion. At this point, you may reach for another “hit” of caffeine, followed by  another, and another and maybe even one more. If you constantly keep your body  on a caffeine high, you’re constantly keeping your body in “flight-or-flight”  mode. Your body’s “perspective” of this constant state: “Imagine  you lived in a country that was always under threat of attack. No matter where  you went, there was a perpetual state of alert. Not only that, but your defenses  were constantly being depleted and weakened. Does that sound stressful? Caffeine  produces the same effect on your body, like fighting a war on multiple fronts at  the same time.” You body is in a constant state of alertness,  which is characterized by fatigue,  anxiety, mood swings, sleep disturbance, irritability and depression. After this goes on for a long time, your body enters a state of adrenal exhaustion.  Your caffeine consumption has simply pushed your adrenal glands so much that  they’ve burned out. Caffeine forces your glands to secrete when they  don’t have much left to give, and they have to keep digging deeper and deeper,  making you more and more tired over time. And over the years, it takes more and  more coffee to get the same  result. Some people reach the point of drinking half a dozen or more cups of  coffee to get the same result and it’s barely keeping them awake. That’s severe  adrenal depletion. Caffeine increases the stimulating neurohormone, noradrenaline, and reduces  the calming neurotransmitter, serotonin. In other words, caffeine affects your body just like any drug. You start  taking it slowly, but as your body develops a tolerance to it, you need more and  more to feel the same effects. Eventually, your body reaches a point where it  can’t be without it; otherwise, you will start to experience withdrawal  symptoms.You may think that you don’t drink nearly enough to become addicted to it,  but you probably already are.  Instead of reaching for your morning cup of coffee, you can do your body a  big favor by eating a healthy breakfast instead. I realized very quickly that although I had gone through the withdrawal period and was feeling amazing, every morning I was struggling with my husband’s coffee smelling so good. And I missed that morning ritual. Now I make a Garden of Life Raw Meal smoothie and gives me lots more energy than the coffee did in the end AND it’s great for me. (If you would like to replace your coffee with a Garden of Life smoothie, you can CLICK HERE => Garden of Life Raw Meal, 2.6 lbs. to buy it) 

To read more about he effects of caffeine on the body you can visit: www.naturalnews.com

  David Stewart, PhD. writes in the book “Healing Oils of the Bible”: “Measurements of the human body found that a healthy person has a frequency around 32-68 MHz. When a person’s frequency dips to 58 MHz, cold symptoms can manifest. Flu symptoms start at 57 MHz. Candida at 55 MHz, and Estein Barr syndrome at 52 MHz. Cancer can begin when the body falls at 52 MHz. The process of dying begins at 25 MHz and goes to zero at death.

 In other experiments by Tainio, he measured the effects of coffee, finding that even holding a cup of coffee lowers one’s bodily frequency by 8 MHz and that taking a sip can lower one’s frequency by 14 MHz. When essential oils are inhaled after the exposure to coffee, the bodily frequencies restore themselves in less than a minute, but if no oils are administered, it can take up to three days for the body to recover from even one drink of coffee.”

 Wow! This really makes me rethink the coffee drinking habit I had! I am on the other side now. After 2 weeks, I barely feel a craving and I feel better than I have in years. I wake up in the morning with TONS of really good energy and no anxiety at all! If you are interested in some alternatives to coffee in oils here are a few of my favorites…

Sick of being sick? There is a better way…

I am talking “oils” today! I am talking about the one oil blend that is the most antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-infectious of all essential oils.  I am passionate about talking to you about Thieves oil right now because I feel it would be completely selfish of me if I didn’t share with you something that God created and is 100% great for you and your family. This is the BEST way I have found yet, and I have been searching for quite a few years (13 to be exact), to keep my family healthy and out of the doctors office and antibiotic FREE!

 So what’s wrong with antibiotics anyway???

 (article taken from: http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/antibiotics.htm)

 Beyond  Antibiotics is the title of a  book by two medical doctors, Keith Sehnert, MD and Lendon Smith, MD.These gutsy authors challenge one of the most  sacred cows of conventional medicine, the widespread use of antibiotics.I have found antibiotics are very rarely  needed, and most often they are very harmful.I have drawn information from the book to write this  article.

 Doctors prescribe antibiotics at what can only be  termed an incredible rate.According to  several studies done around the year 2000, obstetricians and gynecologists wrote  2,645,000 antibiotic prescriptions every week.Internists prescribed 1,416,000 per week.This works out to 211,172,000 prescriptions  annually, just for the two specialties!Pediatricians prescribe over $500 million worth of antibiotics annually  just for one condition, ear infections. The intent of this article is not to  suggest that antibiotics should never be used.They can be life-saving.However,  many health authorities are beginning to admit that antibiotics are  overprescribed and toxic, creating many subtle problems that are worse than the  original condition.Let us examine  antibiotics more carefully in light of recent findings.

  antibiotics4601

 MYTHS  ABOUT ANTIBIOTICS Among the prevalent myths about  antibiotics are the following three:

 Myth #1. Antibiotics are  responsible for the decline in infectious disease.The truth is that antibiotics are helpful for  many infections.However, antibiotics  have not resulted in the elimination of infectious diseases by themselves. In fact, we now have  antibiotic-resistant diseases that are much more difficult to treat as a direct  result of the use of antibiotics such as certain strains of gonorrhea and  tuberculosis, as well as many others that are less well known such as MRSA, a  resistant strain of streptococcus.These  cause many deaths, especially in hospitals. In Beyond Antibiotics, the authors use  graphs to trace the incidence of the major infectious diseases from 1900 to  1973.The diseases include measles,  scarlet fever, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, pneumonia, influenza, whooping  cough, diphtheria and polio. All were in decline for several  decades before the introduction of antibiotics or vaccines.After reviewing the data, researchers John  McKinlay and Sonja McKinlay at Boston University concluded that “.. at most,  3.5% of the total decline in mortality since 1900 could be ascribed to medical  measures introduced for the diseases considered here”.Improved nutrition and improved sanitation  and hygiene were far more important than the ‘wonder drugs’ or vaccines to  reduce these diseases.

Myth 2. Antibiotics are useful  against colds and flu.In truth, antibiotics are only helpful for  bacterial infections.However, many  physicians continue to prescribe them for viral conditions such as colds and  flu.The rationale is to prevent  secondary bacterial infection.This  would be fine, except for myth #3 below, the dangers of antibiotics. Given the dangers of antibiotics, it  is prudent in most cases not to take antibiotics for colds and flus.They can worsen the situation and prolong  recovery.

Myth #3.Antibiotics are harmless.This is the most insidious myth.It leads to overprescribing and blinds  physicians and the public to the dangers of antibiotics, described in the next  section.Meanwhile, safer methods of  avoiding and treating infections are ignored on the premise that the antibiotics  will take care of everything. The Physicians Desk Reference  lists the adverse effects of antibiotics.Anyone who is taking an antibiotic (or any other medication) should read  about the adverse effects.This can help  prevent nasty surprises. The interaction between antibiotics and other medications should also be  noted.In addition to the side effects  and cautions described in books, antibiotics present other problems that are  described below.  

 Antibiotics

 PROBLEMS  WITH ANTIBIOTICS The list of problems with  antibiotics is quite long.Some are  common and well known.Others are  subtle, but no less important.I have  divided the adverse effects into nine categories:

1) They contribute to cancer.A  2008 study of 3,000,000 people divided the participants into groups that had  taken no antibiotics for the past two years, those that had taken 2-5  prescriptions and those that had taken six or more prescriptions in the same  time period.Participants were tracked  for six years afterwards.Those who had  taken 2-5 antibiotic prescriptions had a 27% increase in cancers compared to  those who took none.Those who took six  or more prescriptions had a 37% increase in cancers.This was a carefully done study on a large  group of people and published in a very reputable journal (Int J Cancer  08;123:2152-2155).

 Other studies show the same  thing.A National Cancer Institute study in a major  medical journal found that the incidence of breast cancer doubled among women  who took took more than 25 antibiotic prescriptions or took antibiotics for more  than 500 days over 17 years (JAMA  04;291:827-835).

2. Allergic  Reactions.I used to worry every time I prescribed  penicillin when I was a medical intern.It had been explained that rarelya patient would have a fatal allergic reaction to it.I was taught that if I practiced medicine  long enough someone would die in my office after a shot of penicillin. While this is uncommon, other  allergic reactions to antibiotics occur frequently.Not only can the drug cause a reaction, but  most antibiotics contain chemical colors, sugar and other additives that can  trigger a reaction in sensitive individuals.

 3. Destruction Of Beneficial Bowel  Flora.Like pesticides, antibiotics kill good bugs  along with the bad ones.Wide-spectrum  antibiotics are notorious for this.The  human intestine has a somewhat delicate ecology in which certain bugs help  digest food, produce certain vitamins, and maintain a balance of organisms that  prevents harmful bacteria and yeasts from multiplying. Wide-spectrum antibiotics derange  the normal ecology of the intestine.This can cause parasitic infection, vitamin deficiencies, loss of  minerals through diarrhea, inflammation of the gut, malabsorption syndromes and  development of food allergies due to defects in intestinal function.

 4. Development Of Resistant  Species Of Micro-organisms.An article in Science Magazine, August 1992, stated,  “Doctors in hospitals and clinics around the world are losing the battle against  an onslaught of new drug-resistant bacterial infections including staph,  pneumonia, strep, tuberculosis, dysentery and other diseases that are costly and  difficult, if not impossible, to treat”. Bacteria have a certain ability to  mutate.Antibiotics kill bacteria that  are susceptible to their action, but this leaves the field open for mutant  strains to multiply even more.It is a  case of survival of the fittest.The use  of antibiotics actually encourages the development of the mutant, drug-resistant  super-bacteria.

 5. Immune  Suppression.This may sound odd, as the purpose of  antibiotics is presumably to help the immune response.However, evidence indicates that people  treated with antibiotics have more repeat infections than those who are not  treated.This is especially true of  children whose ear infections are treated with antibiotics.Vitamin A and C and the use of simple herbs  such as echinacea and astragalus, for example, are much safer and often equally  effective. In fact,  antibiotics do not aid the immune system.They replace one of its functions.Antibiotics act by inhibiting certain enzymatic processes of bacteria,  and by changing mineral balances.Normal  cells, however, are also affected.This  may be one reason why antibiotics weaken the immune response.Other toxic effects of antibiotics, such as  the effect upon the normal bowel flora, may also be a cause. AIDS research indicates that a risk  factor for AIDS is an impaired immune response.This can be due to a history of repeated antibiotic use.Perhaps it is no accident the same group with  the highest incidence of AIDS, male homosexuals as of 2009,is also a group that uses more antibiotics  than other groups in America.

 The link between antibiotic use and  increased cancer rates can also be explained this way.This topic is discussed in the paragraphs  above under #1.

 6. Overgrowth of Candida Albicans  And Other More Dangerous Intestinal Infections.Normally, candida albicans, a common yeast,  lives peacefully in our intestines and elsewhere, in harmony with other flora  that keep the yeast in check.Take an  antibiotic and all of this changes.By  suppressing the normal flora, candida takes over and problems begin.In its mild form the result is diarrhea or a  yeast infection. Far more serious is the growing  problem of chronic muco-cutaneous yeast infection.This is described in books such as The Yeast Connection and The Yeast Syndrome.It is a major iatrogenic illness today, and a  very debilitating and potentially fatal condition.One of the prime risk factors for chronic  candida infection is repeated antibiotic use. Even more dangerous is that  antibiotic use opens the intestines to infection by other species of pathogenic  or disease-causing bugs, parasites, yeasts and other types of organisms ranging  from amebas to far more toxic ones that can cause all types of systemic damage,  as well as damage to the intestinal lining and related areas.

 7. Chronic Fatigue  Syndrome.This is another ‘new’ health plague.It is associated with chronic viral illness  and a weakened immune system.While its  exact origins are not clear, one of the major risk factors for chronic fatigue  syndrome is – you guessed it – repeated antibiotic use.

 8. Nutrient Loss And Resulting  Deficiency States.Nutrient loss from antibiotics is due in part  to diarrhea, which causes a loss of essential minerals.Destruction of friendly bacteria in the  intestines can also impair the synthesis of certain vitamins in the  intestines.While not a major cause of  malnutrition, antibiotic usage may be another factor contributing to poor  nutrition and thus a weakened body chemistry.

 9. Treating Effects, Not  Causes.Antibiotics only address the end-stage result  of a weakened body chemistry – bacterial invasion.The bacteria may only be there to “mop up”  the biological debris that are present because the body is too weak to eliminate  the poisons. Fever is one way the body burns up toxic  substances.Providing it does not get  out of hand, the infectious process can serve a useful purpose.Cutting short the process with antibiotics  aborts the cleansing function of a fever and impairs long-term health. Not true, you might say.However, I believe it is true in some cases  because on tissue mineral tests, there are clear indicators of increased  susceptibility to infections.The  indicators are: 1) a low energy level, 2) a low sodium/potassium ratio, 3) toxic  levels of mercury, copper, or cadmium, and 4) low zinc. In hundreds of cases, when these  imbalances are corrected, the tendency for infections decreases  drastically.In other words, healthy  people do not get as many infections.Infections do not strike randomly.There is a logic to infections, and the underlying causes can be  addressed. This line of reasoning traces back  to the famous debate between Pasteur and Beauchamp.Dr. Pasteur insisted that germs are the cause  of disease.His colleague, Beauchamp,  insisted that the health of the host was more important than the germs. On his death bed, Pasteur was said  to have declared that Beauchamp was correct – “the host is everything, the germs  are nothing”.Orthodox medicine,  however, embraced Pasteur’s view, and ignored Beauchamp.It is time to focus more on the person, and  less on the germs.

 10. High Cost.While  the cost of a single antibiotic prescription may not be extremely high, newer  ones are somewhat costly.The costs are  high when the side effects are considered, along with the sheer numbers of  prescriptions that are written around the world each day , month and  year. Millions of doctor  visits and prescriptions for antibiotics add up to a major expense.While penicillin is not expensive, other  newer antibiotics are quite costly. These newer antibiotics are used  more frequently today due to the presence of penicillin-resistant strains of  bacteria.We must also include in the  cost of antibiotics the cost of allergic reactions, candida albicans infections,  repeat infections, development of resistant organisms and immune  suppression. The cost is justified if life is at  stake.However, if less toxic and less  costly alternatives can be used, shouldn’t these be tried first?Bringing health care costs under control is  not just a matter of eliminating waste and inefficiency.We need methods of healing that build up the  health of the people, not tear it down.

  Let’s consider the cost of a natural aternative to Antibiotics?

 So – how does Thieves oil fit into a “financially concerned” household?

 Well, my cost for a 250 drop bottle is $33.75 (well, less if you count in the awesome freebies and discounts offered to distributors each month).  And when someone gets sick, we don’t go through a whole bottle.  Not even a 1/2 of bottle, so far. It’s a whole lot cheaper than the gas (whoa – $4 per gallon?!) and copay and maybe an antibiotic on top of it.  We NEVER leave the doctors office without some sort of perscription. On top of all of that, I can’t even remember how many times I have taken my little guys to see the doctor and they end up getting some other bug or virus they picked up there along with the one they already had!

 This is a great way to get started on your healthy journey. Contact me if you have any questions, I would be so happy to help out!

 Right now you can get Thieves oil for $33.75 (retails for $44.41) until this Saturday (4/20). 🙂

“Miracle” in a bottle.

Let me just start off by saying that I was very skeptical of the Thieves oil blend when I was introduced to Young Living. All that it claimed to do… I mean, seriously? Anti-everything bad! But it came in my kit and I wasn’t going to just let it sit there. I have 4 boys and that’s a lot of germs and dirt and gross (sorry boys… mommy loves you!). But really, we are always fighting “something”. Over the past month as a sickness would creep up, I would pull out that Thieves, and before I knew it, we were all good! Healthy, happy and never skipped a beat. I have been a mom for 20 years (yikes!!!) and I know my sicknesses pretty well. We have escaped a pretty fierce stomach bug recently with very little effects on our little guy who got it, and get this… no one else in the house got it!!!  No one!  Not an upset tummy, not a “oh I don’t feel good”, not even a burp from the other 5 who live here! I think that is pretty outstanding considering that has NEVER happened in my group of boys… NEVER. 

The basic Thieves Oil Recipe was created from research on a band of thieves who were miraculously protected from the black plaque. Even though they plundered from the highly contagious, dead-and-dying, plague victims, they were protected and did not contract the dreaded disease. Their secret formula was a blend of essential oils that they rubbed all over their bodies.

Young Living Essential Oils has a proprietary blend based on this thieves oil recipe. This very Thieves Oil Blend was tested at Weber State University in Utah, and found to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria. Young Living’s Thieves Oil blend was found to be highly anti-infectious and supportive of the immune system.

This is the most amazing blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious essential oils. Also, has a “numbing” effect, which can be used for toothaches, headaches, cold sores and such. Pretty amazing stuff!!!!

It is safe for the environment plus it contains health giving properties. When you clean with thieves essential oil you kill germs such as mold, viruses and bacteria, purify the air, and boost your family’s immune system all at the same time! WOW!

The uses for Thieves oil is almost ENDLESS!
