Garbage in…Garbage out (part 1)

We get out of our health what we put into it.

Did you know YL was the first company to add essential oils to their supplements?

Big brand supplements are not good nutrition.  They are lab created, not natural.  They only mimic a natural supplement.

What makes our body a host for disease? Being acidic.  Pathogens love acidic environment…acid leads to inflammation…which leads to disease.  Sugar is a main cause of being acidic.

Young Living’s age-specific nutrition products come packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for every stage in life.

Lets start with my favorite way to keep my family healthy…

NingXia Red®

Wolfberry (are a great source of fiber & over 36,000 on the ORAC scale), Cherry (helps with joint discomfort), Plum (great source of fiber), Blueberries (2,400 on the ORAC scale)

Now let’s talk about the importance of Enzymes.

Without enzymes things would not decompose (dead animals, leaves turning brown and breaking down, etc). Enzymes are the catalyst that create many essential biochemical reactions that don’t happen without them.

Three types of enzymes:  

  1. Digestive (produces)
  2. Food (living food, not processed, raw)
  3. Metabolic (come from organs like the pancreas)

Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures over 120 degrees (from cooking, processes like pasteurization, microwaving, radiation (zaps enzymes to have longer shelf life). Carrots have more enzymes than any other food.  Foods are made of chemical elements that need enzymes to break them down.  Enzymes need vitamins and minerals to function.  Enzymes unlock the benefits of vitamins, minerals and hormones to engage us in the body functions we need.  Enzymes are specific in purpose.

Young Living offers several choices in enzymes:

Allerzyme

AllerZyme

Detoxzyme®

OmegaGize³™

OmegaGize

We need omega 3’s for our brain, heart, and liver. Fish oil is the same omega 3 in our brain.  Gary combined former heart product into OmegaGize. Fish oil is unstable and needs to be refrigerated. It becomes rancid in only 40 mins in the stomach.  Fish oil consumed on its own is deadly.  If you consume it, you need a high fat soluble antioxidant with it.

What is different about fish oil from the health store and Young Living?

Once a bottle of fish oil is opened, it is becoming rancid.  Young Living mixes fish oil with clove oil and vitamin E (over a million on the ORAC) immediately.  Listeria (the bad bacteria) found in fish oil is killed with the clove oil.  Added vitamin D (reduces cancer and cardiovascular risk) because we are chronically deficient in vit D.  Females need 4000 IUs a day (our absorption is at a lower rate when we are over 40 and we need more).  Contains roman chamomile which amplifies the absorption by 15%-16%.  A third of  the country are on statin drugs (Zocor, Lipitor) which gives you myopathy (breaks down muscle tissues like the heart) and depletes the CoQ10 of our heart (a key nutrient).  OmegaGize contains the highest quality of CoQ10 on the market today to break down statins.

3 oils in OmegaGize:  Clove (anti-everything; coagulant, protects against ulcers), Spearmint (increases metabolism, gall bladder stimulant), German Chamomile (antioxidant, promotes digestive, liver and gall bladder health

Back to School EO’s

Have you started your Back to School shopping?  I love new School Supplies.

Don’t forget to add Essential Oils to the supply list for a healthy, happy school year!

Quick Testimony: This past school year my kids did not miss school for being sick.  Instead we took 2 days off to go to Disney World.  This is huge!!!  The year before my son missed so much school we got one of those nasty letters telling us he couldn’t miss anymore.  He was sooooo sick, multiple times.  This is why I am passionate about sharing Young Living Essential Oils with others.  They have been such a huge change in our family wellness.

There Is Always Someone Who Will Do It Cheaper…

One thing I hear a lot is that Young Living is expensive.  After spending a week in Utah and seeing the farm and how seriously they take quality, I see that we probably don’t pay enough for this process.  Most of us would not be willing to work as hard as Young Living does!  You can read about Young Livings seed to seal process here: seedtoseal.com

The stuff you see at the grocery store is not quality stuff.  For it to be sold in a store it has to be FDA approved which means absolutely nothing.  The FDA allows these companies to label their “oils” 100% pure but only requires them to have 10% pure oil in it.  So what is the other 90%?  Chemicals, fillers, water, etc…  The FDA is also not my standard of things that are good because they approve all kinds of bad stuff we shouldn’t be putting in to our bodies.

Pure oils do not expire.  If you have any oils that are not Young Living they most likely have an expiration date somewhere on them.  This means they have fillers.  Fillers expire!

Also when you consider all the things that you never need to buy again once you start using Young Living Oils and other Products, you will be saving money and not putting harmful chemicals into your body.

YLConvention 2014

This was my very first Young Living Convention.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to go and see first hand how wonderful our company is and how serious they are about Young Living standards.  Convention was in Salt Lake City, Utah this year.  We stayed at The Hilton which is right across the street from the convention at the Salt Palace.

Monday, Day 1

When we first arrived we went to a leadership session with several great speakers.

IMG_4602

First, Darren Hardy is the publisher and founding director of SUCCESS magazine. Hardy is a businessman, author, private equity investor, keynote speaker, corporate advisor, and a mentor to CEOs and entrepreneurs.  He  spoke on 21st Century Leadership.

A few of my favorite take aways:

Lead by example – behavior never lies

Leaders set the pace – people don’t go as fast as they can, they go as fast as they are being led

How do you get people to do what you want?  Ask yourself 2 questions: What do you want?  (list 12 top attributes you want)  Do I demonstrate these attributes?

Everybody recruits: military, colleges, sports, charities, religious, corporations

The best businesses have the best people.  Great people aren’t trained, they are found

Sell You! You are the living spokesperson for Young Living.  They are going to buy it if you believe it and exemplify it.   You can’t convince someone of something you don’t believe yourself.

Change SELL to HELP!  Help people better themselves, focus on how you can help them instead of what they can do for you.

Monkey See Monkey Do – You are always training someone

Then Connie Podesto, Award-Winning Author, Comedian, and Expert in the Psychology of Human Relations.  She was funny and identified our personalities and taught me I was a triangle.

Last but not least was our founder, Gary Young.  He is so passionate about what he does, it is contagious!  He encouraged us all to Dream Big, Live our Dream and don’t let people squash our dreams!

Some more take aways:

We are created to do great things!

If you are not self-evaluating yourself, somebody else will.

I can’t = I won’t

After leadership session, they had a Welcome Party with tons of food, desserts and a Ningxa bar.  We met up with some of our team here.
