Support Your Immune System

immupower3Worried about catching all the bugs that are going around?  When patients come in to the office that are sick, I use many products to support my immune system. I love the whole food vitamins called Master Formula, Ningxia Red, Life 9 Probiotics, Sulfurzyme, and the oil called Immupower.  I don’t love the smell of Immupower but it works for me. I put it on the bottom of my feet, put on socks and go to bed.  I have been exposed to so many things and so far (knock wood) have not been sick in years.

Diffusing the oils release negative ions (good ones like the ocean), disperses the oils into the environment as in nature, and helps purify the air from microbes. The tree oils are especially helpful for the respiratory system. In one of my classes for my aromatherapy certification, lemon oil was suggested to cut the duration of a cold in half. Apply the lemon oil to the chest and feet after a shower.  Some people will need to dilute the oils with a carrier oil like V6.  Thieves oil in the diffuser along with eucalyptus oil can be helpful.  Use a 1:3 ratio.  Less is more with oils so use sparingly.

To purchase products, go to and use member # 1034089.  A gift of a free essential oils desk reference will be mailed to anyone obtaining a premium wholesale account under my member #

Many blessings for a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Ingredients of Immupower oil:

Hyssop†, Mountain savory†, Cistus†, Camphor†, Frankincense†, Oregano†, Clove†, Cumin†, and Dorado azul†

†100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil

Oolong Tea for Allergy,Eczema,Bones

slique-tea-box2-246pxIn Dr Leo Galland’s Allergy Solution book, he recommends Oolong tea as it was found in research studies to inhibit allergic reactions and help eczema. In his book, he tells you how to brew the tea to reduce the caffeine and still get the health benefits. Dr Galland also wrote about a Chinese study with oolong tea and overweight men and women. In six weeks of drinking four cups of oolong tea daily, the subjects had significant reductions in weight and waist size, despite no change in diet.

Young Living’s Slique Tea is made with Oolong tea.

Oolong tea has been used in Asia for years to help women build bone. In Dr Christian Northrup’s new book called, Goddesses Never Age, she doesn’t recommend the drugs that are supposed to build bone. Dr Northrup is a board certified OB-GYN and a Hay House author.

Morning Start

morning-start-bath-gelAfter the hurricane, my yard was covered in pine needles. I was covered in pine sap and couldn’t get it off. I tried the morning start bath gel and it worked like a charm. It is my new go to bath gel,even at night. The smell is heavenly and it is chemical free. I just ordered the other bath gels to try.  They have an unscented bath gel that you can add your favorite essential oils to.

Detox? Is it necessary or safe?

5627The Detox Summit has been an education for me. We are exposed daily to many chemicals and heavy metals through the environment, food and skin care products. Since we can only limit our exposure, we have to try to remove the toxins through a regular detox program. In the Detox Summit, they offered many suggestions including pure water,organic foods, DIY cleaning and skin care products, Cyto-detox,cell phone radiation blockers,chelating supplements, oxygen therapy, coffee enemas and infrared saunas to name a few. They believe that toxins are driving most health problems in today’s world including the inability to lose weight.  “Fix the cell to get well”

In a 2010 Taiwan study,(see the Food Forensics book) they used orange and lemon peel to remove heavy metal ions including nickel and copper.  Orange and lemon essential oils are cold pressed from the peel. Organic or wild crafted,pesticide free essential oils are critical as the rind is exposed to the elements. Using oils with chemicals and solvents will defeat the purpose of helping you detox.  I take an enzyme supplement daily called Detoxzyme to support my body. Dr Eric Z spoke of using Valerian and Ginger mint essential oils for chelation.

Some of the presenters of the summit spoke on the importance of gut health and how toxins can leak into the gut even to the point of causing auto-immune dis-ease. GMO foods have been linked to leaky gut. The summit suggested probiotics and organic foods to support the gut.

I have been enjoying the benefits of the infrared sauna two or three times a week. I met a lady in the sauna that works at the health food store. She said that replenishing the minerals and electrolytes in the body after the sauna treatment is crucial. She said that RO and distilled water is dead water. She adds minerals to her water daily and electrolytes after the sauna therapy. She had attended the hippocrates institute for three weeks and they had the saunas in each room.  Most tap water is reclaimed and treated with chemicals.

hm-fb-sqWhen I started my journey to become a HeartMath coach/mentor, I had no idea what that meant. Ilene Gottlieb, RN,CHTP  encouraged me to look at HeartMath as a way to bring the Heart/Mind/Spirit into balance.  Before my second carpal tunnel surgery, I was waking nightly with my heart pounding.  I went to a cardiologist who found nothing. I went to another doctor who wanted me to take a benzodiazepine. I was not doing that. What was my excuse to Ilene for not wanting to check out HeartMath?  “I don’t have an i phone”.   You don’t need one but it sounded like the thing to say at the time. Ilene just said OK, never pushing me.  I wasn’t ready for the message so I decided to try different avenues. Acupuncture, DOM, DO, supplements, Tapping ETF, hypnotism, yoga, meditation, holistic journals, summits, earthing…..  nothing worked except for learning that my problem was probably excess adrenaline from my emotions.  I was doing this to myself but didn’t know how to stop it. Until I got the email….

HeartMath offered a 3 month class to become a Coach. $1500 with six months to pay. It sounded like a win/win because I could help others (more important than helping myself). My house would be paid off by that time so the money would not be an issue. Once a week we met in a telephone class and had homework along with choosing two people to coach. I soaked up the information and loved every minute of it. The emwave2 device showed me how my heart was affected by my emotions and how to breath into coherence.  Once you start to see how your emotions are affecting your heart, it is a real wake up call. All the things that happened to me were more related to my response to them than the actual events. HeartMath showed me how to get back into balance when I started feeling overwhelmed. Major corporations are using HeartMath and reducing their medical costs along with better employee cooperation and production.

So why did I title this blog post MARRIAGE?  I wanted to marry my HeartMath coaching with the essential oils as a way to anchor the experience to a wonderful smell. When I did my practice, I would use one of my favorite essential oils like a drop of JOY on the heart. I also love Neroli oil but it is pricey. I use my essential reward points to get that oil but it is worth every penny.

If you would like more information about how HeartMath might help you, please feel free to contact me at  Also see or

Good Night

stress-awayDr Michael Breus, the “Sleep Doctor” is hosting a sleep summit in a few days.  Link below to listen to over thirty sleep experts for free.

In his book, Good Night, he writes “Recent studies have offered evidence that Aromatherapy can not only lift your spirits, but possibly reduce anxiety, agitation and even pain-all good effects for inducing sleep. Specifically, consider relaxing smells such as lavender, rose, vanilla (in StressAway blend), and chamomile. Aromatherapy oils can be infused in the air, rubbed on the skin, or even ingested. Although powerful, these are great “mood setters.”

Link for his sleep summit that starts on August 8th.

Where to Apply


To support the organs, try applying essential oils to that area of the foot that corresponds to the organ. See chart above. You can also apply oils to the ear in the same fashion but use caution with hot oils. Always dilute the hot oils when applying to any area other than the feet. Carrier oils include jojoba, coconut, V6, almond and olive to name a few. Oils are concentrated so always start with a drop or two. See the Essential oils desk reference for a chart of the ears and hands.

Here are just a few oils that may support the organ systems:

Liver- Lemon, GLF, Juvacleanse, JuvaFlex, Geranium, Release

Endocrine/Hormone- DragonTIme, Endoflex, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Frankincense

Pancreas-Ocotea,Clary Sage, Ginger, Geranium, Ningxia Red

Kidney- K&B, Lemon, Grapefruit, Juniper

Heart- Valor, Marjoram,Stress Away, Ylang Ylang, AromaLife, Peace & Calm, Release, Joy, RutaVala, Sacred Mountain

Lymph- AromaLife, DiGize, Grapefruit, Cypress, Citrus Fresh, Tangerine,Myrtle

Here is a great article on oils to support the lymphatic system with massage:

Thrift Store Shoppers

Miss Judy and I like to browse the thrift stores for hidden treasures, sort of like curb shopping but it is indoors. Since one man’s trash is another man’s treasures, we often find amazing things.We were on the way to Kissimmee on a Saturday and stopped by the charming downtown area of St Cloud. Thrift stores and Goodwills abound. We spent hours rummaging . You can find wonderful dog toys for twenty five cents and even Princess house kitchen items.

I found a book by Art Brownstein, MD, called Extraordinary Healing. The book was a whole $1.50 so how could I go wrong?  This book has proven to be a treasure. The subjects that he wrote about were way ahead of their time (book was written in 2005).  If you can find a copy of this book, the chapter called The Power of Your Mind and Your Healing System was especially intriguing. He recommended the book, Healing Mantras by Thomas Ashley-Farrand.

Dr Brownstein speaks of many case studies of people getting better using the power of the mind. He recommended focusing on four core beliefs (you can choose your own) but here was his suggestion:

I am lovable just as I am. I deserve to be happy, healthy, and fulfilled in my life. My body has a healing system, and it knows how to heal itself. My body wants to be healthy.

Since Frankincense has been used for spiritual connections, I am going to try using a drop of it while I focus on positive beliefs like the ones above.

This book is so inspiring and has much more to offer than presented here.  Dr Brownstein is also the author of a book on healing back pain.
