All Natural Sickle Cell Anemia Support

doTERRA Essential Oil Support for

Sickle Cell Anemia

Sickle cell anemia is a disease passed down through families in which red blood cells form an abnormal crescent shape. (Red blood cells are normally shaped like a disc.)

Sickle cell anemia is caused by an abnormal type of hemoglobin called hemoglobin S. Hemoglobin is a protein inside red blood cells that carries oxygen. Hemoglobin S changes the shape of red blood cells, especially when the cells are exposed to low oxygen levels. The red blood cells become shaped like crescents or sickles.

The fragile, sickle-shaped cells deliver less oxygen to the body’s tissues. They can also get stuck more easily in small blood vessels, and break into pieces that interupt healthy blood flow.

Sickle cell anemia is inherited from both parents. If you inherit the hemoglobin S gene from one parent and normal hemoglobin (A) from your other parent, you will have sickle cell trait. People with sickle cell trait do not have the symptoms of sickle cell anemia.

Sickle cell disease is much more common in people of African and Mediterranean descent. It is also seen in people from South and Central America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.

Those with Sickle Cell have noticed:

Most issues usually don’t occur until after age 4 months.

Almost all patients with sickle cell anemia have painful episodes (called crises), which can last from hours to days. These crises can affect the bones of the back, the long bones, and the chest.

Some patients have one episode every few years. Others have many episodes per year. The crises can be severe enough to require a hospital stay.

Common issues include:

Attacks of abdominal pain,  Bone pain, Breathlessness, Delayed growth and puberty, Fatigue, Fever, Paleness, Rapid heart beat, ulcers on lower legs (in adolescents and adults), Yellowing of the eyes and skin (jaundice).

Less Common issues include:

Chest pain, Excessive thirst, Frequent urination, Poor eyesight/blindness, Strokes.

Essential Oil Support For Celiac (gluten intolerance)

doTERRA Essential Oil Support for:

Celiac Disease

(Gluten Intolerance)

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease wherein the body mistakenly attacks gluten and other proteins found in grains that are in the digestive tract.  Celiac disease is genetic and can develop at any age in life from infancy to adulthood.  What occurs is as foods with gluten are eaten the body produces antibodies to attack the gluten but these antibodies then mistakenly attack the lining of the small intestines.  This damage to the intestinal lining includes the villi that are responsible to absorb nutrients and begin their delivery to other body systems.  The nutrients particularly affected are fats, calcium, iron, and folate (folic acid or vitamin B9).

With deficiency in these nutrients a number of issues emerge that vary from individual to individual with the disease.  These issues include:

·  Abdominal pain and bloating

·  Indigestion, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting

·  Fatty stools (pale, large, bad odor, floating)

·  Decreased (or increased) appetite

·  Lactose intolerance

·  Weight loss, growth problems in children

===

Some issues are not associated with the digestive system:

·  Dermatitis herpetiformis (a skin rash)

·  Anemia (iron deficiency), fatigue

·  Missed menstrual periods

·  Muscle cramps, joint and bone pain

·  Sores in mouth

·  Seizures

·  Easily bruising, nose bleeds

·  Dental discoloration, hair loss

·  Nutrient deficiencies, malnutrition

Beyond physical symptoms depression, irritability, and behavioral changes can accompany the difficulties in diagnosing and dealing with this disease.

Celiac has been reported to be triggered by trauma after surgery, childbirth, stress, and even viral infection.

Testimonial:

I’m certainly no expert, but as someone who suffered from anemia my whole life, without knowing why until a year ago, I will gladly share my experience.  I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease last February when I learned that 8 months into my pregnancy my iron was so low they were worried I might need a transfusion.  Fortunately, I didn’t, but it still has been a tough battle to regain my strength.  I think that taking the gluten out of my diet was a good first step, but it wasn’t the only thing. I really didn’t begin to notice a difference until I went on the LLW (Life Long Vitality Supplements) last summer.  At the time I started on the LLW I was desperate.  Between the low iron levels and the hormones after having a baby, I had lost so much hair and nothing was growing back in.  I was embarrassed to leave the house.  I was dealing with a lot of depression, joint pain and just over all tired all the time.  I felt a lot older than my 37 years, and I really wanted  something that would give me my life back.  I literally only made it through the day by consuming 100+ ounces of caffeinated soda every single day.  That is a staggering amount, when I look back!

I was introduced to DoTerra in July and immediately joined.  I was mostly interested in it for helping my kids, but gradually I began to see how the products could help me.  I started on the LLW in August and even though I’m not perfectly consistent, I do take them pretty often.  In September, I completely, cold turkey went off caffeine and it was about 4 miserable days, but so worth it!  I have continued to use the oils and to change my diet.  I am almost completely on a whole foods diet, eating everything fresh and when possible-raw.  I am a whole new person.  My hair came back in thicker than ever, my nails are long and strong (which I haven’t experienced in years)  I have energy and look forward to each day.  My depression, for the most part is gone and a month after starting on the LLW, I was able to go completely off the anti-deppressant my OBGYN put me on after the birth of my son.

Sorry for the novel, but I guess, I could sum it up to first, try to find out what might be causing the anemia.  And second, use the LLW and modify the diet.  I haven’t had my levels retested, but I feel 110% better!  So, something must be going right!  Good luck!

Lemon (Citrus Limon)


Lemon

Another doTerra favorite, this essential oil powerhouse is cold-pressed from lemon rinds to preserve its delicate nature and potent properties. Lemon is known as a powerful aromatic, topical, and internal cleanser that can be used to complement many other oils. Diffusing lemon in a room can cleanse the air and uplift mood. It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaning booster. For aromatic, topical or dietary use.

Uses:

  • Add a drop to a water bottle or to water served at a restaurant.
  • Diffuse aromatically or apply topically for mood elevation.
  • Add to a drop of honey to soothe a cough or sore throat.
  • Dilute with coconut oil for a daily fingernail conditioning massage.
  • Apply directly to cold sores for soothing relief.
  • Add a drop of lemon and peppermint to your toothbrush after use.
  • Diffuse in a room to neutralize odors.
  • Remove gum, lavel adhesives, and greasy substances from fabric.
  • Use to clean kitchen counter and stainless steel appliances.
  • Add to live oil for a non-toxic furniture polish.
  • Lemon oil is effective against infectious diseases such as fever, malaria and typhoid
  • Can be used as a mouthwash. Add a couple drops to a 4 oz glass of water and gargle.
  • Can be added to a spray bottle of water and sprayed into the air as a deodorizer, neutralizer, and air sterilizer
  • Prepare a mixture of lemon oil and baking soda, and apply it to sinks and tubs, in bathroom and kitchen (kills bad smells & germs)

Important: Make sure you use only glass, ceramic or stainless steel. The potency of the essential oil will pull out petrochemicals from the plastic, and you don’t want to ingest those.

As well, it helps in the formation of white and red blood cells, leukocyte formation (immune system warrior cells), is helpful in treating anemia, asthma, colds, fever, gout, heartburn, intestinal parasites, rheumatism, sore throats and infections, ureter infections, varicose veins, anxiety; is blood pressure regulating, helps ease and clear up cold sores, dissolves cellulite (!), good for debility, digestive problems, energy enhancer; helps alleviate gallstones, is liver and lymphatic system cleansing; beneficial for nervous conditions, respiratory problems, muscular aches and pains, memory improvement… to name but a few of the mighty lemon’s attributes.

 

There are many clinical studies with supportive data regarding the successful treatment of anxiety, cancer, and the conditions noted above, mostly due to its high content of d-Limonene, a powerful natural terpenine that is helpful in inhibiting the accumulation of toxins, while also helping to discharge existing ones from the liver and kidneys. Taken with plenty of fresh water daily, a drop or two of doTERRA’s pure therapeutic-grade lemon oil each time you drink is a great way to keep your system flushed and hydrated!

 

As a culinary treat lemon oil can also be added to cake batters, frostings, chicken dishes, and anything else you can think of! It makes a wonderful addition to vanilla ice cream, souffles, and smoothies, too.
