Essential Oils for Stress

Essential Oils for Stress

Feeling Overwhelmed? Stress weighing you down? doTerra Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways to calm the nervous system and relax your entire body. Stress is something that our modern culture is constantly dealing with from the demands of work, family, finances and finding time for yourself in our fast-paced lifestyles makes the day to day struggle to find peace even more difficult. More and more people are in need of finding effective ways to manage their stress; not only can essential oils have a dynamic and immediate effect on mood but when used regularly can be part of a healthy natural stress management regimen to help your body re-balance its entire system. Stress is the precursor to many common ailments including accidents, lung ailments, heart disease, and immune disorders, by employing simple stress reduction tools that support your body you can do a great deal to prevent many of these chronic disease problems.

The body Is designed to heal and balance itself, every second and every breath the body is replacing cells and striving to find a balance where growth and repair can happen naturally. We have 2 primary modes of operation in our nervous system: Sympathetic or response and reaction and Parasympathetic or growth and healing, it is necessary to move between both of these branches to assure our body can function properly. Stress pushes our body into Sympathetic nerve supply which mean our body takes all its resources from growth and healing  to facilitate reactions. When we are in sympathetic nerve supply our pupils dilate, glucose from our liver is released into the muscles so they can respond and react, digestion slows or ceases, breath becomes shallow, stress hormones are released, the brain armors itself and the heart beats faster. When we are exposed to stress on a consistent basis our bodies get stuck in this fight or flight response system and the activity of healing is diminished creating the framework for many disease processes. Look at this following chart compiled by Mental Health of America of all the disease process that are caused by prolonged periods of fight or flight!

Makes you think twice about how you manage stress doesn’t it?!! So here is the good news having a stress reduction program can help you counteract all these disorders and help you to avoid the over use of medications. So what can we do to start???

Sleep: Proper, restful, regular and uninterrupted sleep is a key to giving your body the time it needs to recuperate and re-energize itself so you can heal and balance your body.

Diet: A healthy real food based diet that cuts out all processed food and cuts back on sugar is crucial for your body to have the right nutrients for the cellular building blocks of healing necessary for healthy aging and growth. Avoiding boxed, bagged, and pre-made foods as much as possible and eating organically as much as possible especially meat and dairy products.

Water: Clean and pure water to assure proper hydration of your bodies tissues is vital to the health of your body and to flush out waste products that can create more stress on the body. Water is necessary for all electrical actions in the body and an important factor in delivering nutrients to our bodies.

Breath: Clean air and the proper ability to breath in air to the entire body is crucial to support the communication needs of the nervous system. Oxygen is a vital part of our bodies metabolic process. Oxygen or breath carries our vital energy though our body creating awareness.

In addition to working on having these 4 basic needs met to assure proper health you can add in a variety of essential oils to support your wellness needs.

Aromas interact with our limbic system and provide a natural help for relieving stress and instilling a calming effect. Oils affect each of us differently. Therefore, it is good to experiment with those recommended to see which gives the most help.   Most suggested are

Balance

Balancing blends contain oils that are geared toward the central nervous system and other body systems. If there are times when you feel confused, doubtful, unsettled, or in need of a sense of well-being, a balancing blend may be an excellent option.

Cellular Damage from GMO’s?

Cellular Damage from GMO’s?

With a lack of information available do you wonder what foods that are genetically modified may be doing to our bodies?

 

What does McDonald’s, the pharmaceutical industry, gylphosate, nutrasweet, DDT, Agent Orange, Coca Cola and designer drugs like Celabrex to name a few popular have in common?  Not only can they be associated with ill health effects, birth defects, reproductive harm and insanity, they are all owned by or in bed with the Monsanto company.

DSC_0135

Studies have shown that rats and other lab animals have had adverse health effects from eating GMO’s including cancers, infertility and high levels of inflammation and toxicity….WE as CONSUMERS have been eating the same genetically modified organisms since the 1990’s and there is little to no research done on  human health and GMO’s. Recently congress passed a rider bill dubbed the “Monsanto Protection Act” allowing Monsanto to override scientific review or study by getting the green light to plant experimental GMO crops. This bill bars Federal courts from stopping the harvesting, planting, sale and consumption of these crops even if dangerous and adverse health and sold effects are discovered in the future. “No GMO” and anti Monsanto groups are popping up all over the world to demand more scientific testing, bans and an over all stop to this “experiment” that may be putting us all at more risk then we know.

The Monsanto empire touches so many layers and levels of our health and wellbeing, as the largest global agriculture and biotechnology who has occupied  the worlds agricultural business and food systems. This chemical company is responsible for introducing pathogens and diseases into our entire ecosystem through agricultural products and engineered seeds. There are documentable effects on animal and crop health that have popped up only after exposure to Monsanto’s  toxic products. Plant death and sudden death syndrome are some of the naming terms for large scale crop problems farmers are seeing and many scientists and veterinarians have documented sever spikes in infertility and reproductive health of animals. Scientist Dr. Don Huber plant pathologist and professor at Perdue University explains that a new organism has been unleashed by use of glyphosate herbicide on crops was discovered after noticeable infertility and spontaneous abortion was observed in livestock. The pathogen causing ill health effects in the animal was traced back to soy bean meal. The organism itself was discovered within the soil in areas of concentrated use of glyphosate (commercially sold as Round Up). What this herbicide is designed to do is “Suppress resistance and increase disease”  according to Dr. Huber, when an organism is killed off a void does not happen in the soil, rather it is replaced or out numbered by a different organism. Just as our bodies hold a fundamental flora of balance and harmony known as out body chemistry the soil has the same mechanism of homeostasis. The Round Up herbicide alters the soil balance into a somewhat state of flight or fight creating more susceptibility to disease and an increase in this deadly pathogen which is then  taken in by the plant and in turn fed to animals who began showing sever health problems and diminished reproductive ability.

Further observation of this pathogens reveal it is a tiny microscopic bug capable of reproduction “HitchHiker” bug that is compatible with many other organisms creating stronger reproduction and virulence, it has also contributed to documentable infections in cattle, pigs, poultry and horses and will kill a fertilized egg in 24- hours. Not only is this new organism strong enough to survive processing and intestinal flora of animals Monsanto’s chemicals and products are used in just about everything commercially available including corn which is in nearly EVERYTHING processed and all over grocery store shelves. It is the manufacturing of theses food types and damaging super bug organisms that are not only destroying peoples health but effecting the thriving ecosystem of balance and harmony we call life. More resources need to be put towards the exploration and implications of this system and its effects on our bodies, our earth and the sustainability of a balanced economy.  Please listen to more in this video clip of Dr. Huber on Food Democracy NOW, and learn just how the volatile this may be for the stability of our food system.

I first made sense of GMO’s in an Energy Medicine training course in 2005 at the beginning of my professional study as a practitioner to provide energy healing. We were learning a technique called “Cellular Repair” which works to help the body to disassociate from genetic information in the DNA/RNA coding that causes the body to create cells from a damaged or insufficient  blueprints that are passed through our hereditary lines or due to trauma, injury, vaccinations and dispositional traits. We know that our cells and DNA can be reprogrammed by intention, thought and emotion; so this powerful technique allows the body to updates its cellular plans to by helping the body to replace old cells with new healthy cells and replace old genetic patterns with new healthy genetic patterns.  As I was learning how to use this tool and it was coming up in practice in the course while working with another student;  I kept getting details on the cellular repair process that was associated with food and damage that had been done on a cellular level of the “clients” DNA from the food she was eating. Energetically it felt as if there was some sort of incomplete substance in her diet that was triggering her immune system to react to the part of the food body didn’t recognize.

So after sitting quietly listening to this story unfold in her body I decided to ask her “Is there any food allergies you have?” Immediately she told me she had recently been to see her Naturopathic Doctor and that she had tested her for a gluten intolerance that came back positive. She had been gluten free for the last 3 weeks and feeling much more energy and less pain after changing her diet. As she was telling me the story about her going gluten free, a strong recollection came over me of an article i had read a few weeks earlier about genetically engineered soy and its role in agricultures evolution. I remembered as I was reading the article that on an intuitive level it felt really strange to be altering the DNA of our food for production sake and made a mental note to listen for more information on this topic. As she was finishing her story on how she is missing toast it clicked…her body wanted to work out the cellular damage and reaction pattern done from eating commercially processed genetically engineered wheat. The environment of her body and her diet turned on this genetic pattern causing inflammation and allergenic response in her immune system and small intestine, and now that she took out the food in her diet causing the most harm her body had made it a priority to clear the old genetic pattern that was making her sick and reacting to everything she was eating.

After that initial AHHH HAAA moment in the session I did in class i began asking questions and doing my own research keeping up with information on this topic. I soon found out that not only was there not a lot of information available on the subject and what was available seemed incomplete. Over the years more attention has come to this subject and more people recently are demanding better information on the subject. As an energy healing practitioner I continued to encounter the bodies priorities to heal damage done by GMO food and how it dynamically effects the immune and reproductive systems of the body. Personally when I was receiving sessions for myself during my first pregnancy GMO foods effects on a cellular level repeatedly came up as a priority for healing me and the child I was carrying, I learned that unless I grew my own food and ate organic, free range, clean foods I would be coming in contact with theses incomplete foods and they could be effecting my developing child. I have see the GMO cellular damage priority working with women experiencing irregular periods, ovarian cysts, sever allergies, arthritis, inflammation and cancerous processes in the body, each individual session required unwinding and repairing this damage in the bodies own unique way however over the last 7 years I have seen these themes.

We are what we eat! “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” said by Hippocrates it is now scientifically proven that the RNA molecules of the food we eat are found in our intestines and become the backbone for the cellular systems of our bodies, our food is what fuels our healing and growth processes. Our cells need whole, nutrient dense real foods to be nourished and thrive, not toxic herbicides or foods with incomplete genetic chains and empty profiles. If you fuel you body with toxins and missing link “franken” foods your body will go into protection and armoring and if stuck in this phase begin to degrade and attack itself….you may be among the millions of sick, cancer ridden diseased bodies looking for some hope and healing from a system that is too proud to stop and think that it may be the cause of the disease in the first place.  Eat real food, awaken the healer within to repair the damage we all likely have faced from this industrial experiment; and remember your body can heal itself if you give it the right conditions!

Past the Ache into the Swing

 

Aching.  Many of you expressed that in the first 2 weeks of the program, you experienced some “aching.” In your cases, the aching was a physical symptom. This was surprising, causing our team to take a deep and calculating look at the ingredients that are in the supplements we have provided you for the cleanse.  Many of them are draining herbs; this is an apt action that clearly is in accordance with what we want to accomplish in a cleanse: drain away toxicity that has accumulated within the body. Still, for some, too much draining can lead to a deficiency within the body, which can cause the side effect of achiness.  But there are also some other things to think about that may not be entirely physiological.  According to dictionary.com there are three definitions of Ache:

 

1. To have or suffer a continuous dull pain.

2. To feel great sympathy, pity, or the like.

3. To feel eager, yearn, long.

 

Upon reading these definitions, my consciousness resonated with all them.  Here we are, together, doing something that is challenging. Within our connected experience, I believe we all have elements of these three definitions, all manifesting simultaneously.  Some of us, indeed, are experiencing suffering from a continuous dull pain, maybe in our muscles or joints or both. Some of us are sympathizing with all of the others in this program, causing us an intensified connection that could be correlated with aching, much in the way we desire to commune with other beings when we feel a strong emotion. And, finally, we are all on this 28 Day New You as a means to a desired goal, whether that be to have more energy, less pain, more connection to self, or overall, general well-being. We are indeed aching, in that we feel eager, yearn, and long for this desired outcome.


During this time, please, offer yourself what you need, within the realm of your chosen well-being. Touch yourself lovingly, quelling the longing, bringing energy of movement and tonification to relieve the dull pain in your muscles. Use the interfaces we have provided for you to connect with one another, sharing your experiences, to hold space for the sympathy you are called to feel. Fill your time with activities that serve you- your stretching and breathing, reflecting, journaling and nourishing- that will take the place of the eagerness, yearning and longing, by keeping you happily and thoughtfully engaged in the moment.  Above all, be compassionate with yourself. This is a process. I believe some aching is in order. Support yourself, and your compatriots, by taking the time to be with yourself. Always remember, the mind is a powerful tool; it is a cruel master, and an obedient slave. You have the power to change your experience, and your aching can be a tool for growth as much a hindrance to your comfort. Choose accordingly. We support you!

Here is a quick experience to shake you right into this week and normalize your entire nervous system!!

The Physiology Of Hydration

The Physiology Of Hydration

Hydrate WIDE

According to the Center for Healthy Aging, ‘The fact that your body is made up of about two-thirds water may come as no surprise. But it does make you stop and think about the importance of hydration — providing your body the right amount of water each day. Since your muscles and your brain are about 75% water, and your blood is about 82% water, keeping your body hydrated helps keep important body functions working properly. And not being hydrated makes it hard for your body’s systems to work efficiently.

Unfortunately, it has been reported that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. And even mild dehydration will slow down your metabolism. The reason is that dehydration reduces the volume of blood in the body making the cardio-respiratory system work harder to pump blood throughout the body and deliver sufficient oxygen to the working muscles.

To read the complete article, please link here.

Not only is proper hydration essential to all bio-chemical reactions in the body but the way the body is absorbing and using water is an essential component. You can drink all the water you want and still not be properly hydrated because your cells are not absorbing or processing water across the cellular membrane. Balance in the usage of water not only can support proper hydration levels but is dynamically linked to how we process emotions. If we are not properly using water in our system we can not properly harmonize and synthesize our emotions either. Each time we experience something the electrical charge of that experience vibrates through our body, if we are properly hydrated that electricity can move through our tissues fluidly and support growing and learning, however if we are dehydrated those experiences get tend to get stuck in the sticky parts of our tissues creating more aches and cramps and lots of wasted energy feeling things over and over!

So not only can you avoid all the physical symptoms of dehydration listed below by simple taking in enough water and having to proper nutrients so your body can use the water correctly you can support your emotional and mental health as well!!

•         Thirst (with caveats as above)

•         Reduced Appetite (often despite a lengthy period without food)

•         Skin Flushing (especially face and neck)

•         Dark Colored Urine (may be confused by supplement use or some foods)

•         Dry Mouth (and difficulty producing saliva)

•         Fatigue

•         Mild headache

•         Chills

•         Dizziness

•                Decreased sweating and urination

•                Increased heart rate, respiration and body temperature

•                Extreme fatigue

•                Muscle cramps

•                Severe headaches

•                Nausea and constipation

•                Neurosensory disturbances (tingling, numbness)

Flower of Life

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.
