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…

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:

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

A New Tradition and A GIVEAWAY

We have found something new to do in our house for birthdays.  We have several birthdays in August and this year I wanted to try something new to make our oldest son feel special for his birthday.

It is called The Birthday Blessing

IMG_5589[1]

IMG_5588[1]

It comes with a wooden cake that you can put out for the entire birthday month or get it out the week of and put it in a place of significance.  When they see the cake set out the month of their birthday they will get excited.  It’s like saying, It’s time to celebrate you!

It also comes with a journal.  The journal has places to fill in how they have grown, changed, and attach a picture.  I had my son fill it in so that we could see how his handwriting changes each year.  It will also be neat to see how his wording changes.

IMG_5032[1]

When filling out the journal my son and I sat down at the table together and it gave us time to reflect over the year and for me to encourage him and help him see how much he has changed.  By the end he was sitting much taller and more proud!

I wish I would have had this from the beginning with all 3 of my kids!

And the wonderful ladies over at The Birthday Blessing want one of you to have your very own, for FREE!

Ways to enter:

1. Go Like The Birthday Blessing on facebook!

Attention: Pilots

I went to Starbucks yesterday to sit and fill out some paperwork before picking my kids up from school.  There was only 1 table available in the whole place so I take my seat and start filling out the papers.  (squirrel)  I over hear the 2 men sitting next to me talk about how they are pilots and that one has Vertigo (Cedarwood) and the other struggles with allergies (LLPC) and getting stuffy.  They both talk about how they are not supposed to fly when they aren’t feeling well or when they are on medicine.  There was a little wall between us or I would have told them all about Young Living Essential Oils.  (I probably wouldn’t have, but like to think I would have)

It did inspire me to make this…

Attention: All Pilots

Oily Dog

Everyday is National Dog Day in our home!  We have the most loved, spoiled rotten, 90lb lap dog.  He really is the best dog though.  He lets our children climb all over him.

Oily Dog

I love him so much I even share my Young Living Essential Oils with him.  That’s right even our dog is Oily!

When I use oils he will follow me with his nose in my hand.  He loves his oils.

An Oil A Day Keeps the Vet Away

When Champ had a wound under his eye I applied Frankinsence and Lavender and then applied a warm compress.

When it is storming outside I apply Peace & Calming right behind his ears and lays down and goes to sleep.

When he has gas I rub peppermint or DiGize on his stomach.  He is a Boxer, this is often!

I spray his bed down with a Purification spray that you can find here.  I also spray this on him when we he is outside longer than just going to the bathroom.

 

So your Premium Starter Kit is great for your WHOLE Family, even the fur-babies!

Skin Care

Finding a skin care product that I love is not an easy task.  I have very sensitive skin and have tried so many things that claim to be natural or good for sensitive skin.  They all burn or turn my face very red, make my eye hurt, breakout in a rash…….

When I joined Young Living a year ago I saw the ART skin care line and wondered, but I really wanted to hear more testimonies about it before trying it.  So, I listened to anyone that brought it up and asked lots of questions.  I never came across anyone that said anything negative about it.

I received it in July and was so anxious to get started.  I took a before picture.  The awesome thing is that it hasn’t even been a month yet and I am already seeing results.  So I had to share.  These pictures were taken in the exact same spot and have not been edited.

ART Before and After

I wanted to share my love of theses products and hosted a class for a few friends to come try them.
