Super Immunity: Get to Know Your Body’s Ultimate Line of Defense

Super Immunity: Stay “On Guard” against getting sick

sick2

Your body has an amazing defense system specifically designed to guard you against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites all laying siege to invade your body. You probably wouldn’t give much thought to it, except that occasionally it becomes run down and you get sick.

——–

What is this amazing system?

It’s your immune system, and to understand its power, all you have to do is observe what happens when something dies. After death, the immune system shuts down and in a matter of hours the body is invaded by all sorts of bacteria, microbes, and parasites until it decomposes. None of these things are able to get in when  your immune system is working, but the moment your immune system stops the door is wide open. As you can see, keeping the immune system in top shape plays a huge role in maintaining good health.

-

Give your immune system a boost

-

Reduce Your Stress

Studies show a steady stream of stress can weaken your immune system. Reduce your stress by avoiding whatever stressors you can. Take time to relax and do things your enjoy.

Eat Your Antioxidants

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can help you get a healthy dose of antioxidants, which can help protect your cells from free radicals and molecules that can damage cells

Take Your Vitamins

A daily multivitamin will help ensure that your body is getting all of the building blocks for a healthy immune system. Some nutrients that may be especially important for immune system health include selenium, vitamins A, C, D, and E, zinc and magnesium.

Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can be used to clean counter tops and doorknobs, or diffused to purify stale air. Additionally, essential oils can be used topically or internally as directed to boost your body’s own natural defenses. Used aromatically, essential oils can also reduce stress, which is a key contributor to weakening the immune system.

Avoid Processed Foods

Processed foods such as fast foods, snack foods, candy, and soda don’t provide much in the way of vitamins, fiber, or other nutrients. And they often contain high levels of sugar, and other additives and chemicals that are not good for your body. Choose nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains

Keep Your Body Moving

One simple way to strengthen your immune system is by exercising. Getting regular exercise can also reduce stress and help lower your risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Exercise moderately a few times a week

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Without enough sleep, your immune system may not have the resources it needs to night off illness. Most adults need about seven to nine hours of sleep each night.

Wash Your Hands

One of the easiest ways to help your immune system fight illness is to wash your hands regularly. It’s also one of the best ways to keep yourself and others healthy. Be sure to use soap and clean, running water, and wash for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use an cleansing essential oil, such as On Guard.

A Surefire Way to Knock Out a Cold

One of the greatest benefits of essential oils is the many ways to quickly kick the common cold.  Here’s a surefire way to stop that cold when you start to feel it coming on.

Add the following to an empty gel capsule & take twice a day

  • 3 drops of Oregano
  • 4 drops of On Guard
  • 4 drops of Peppermint

(Can get empty capsules at any health food store, generally $3-$5 for 100)

Lemony Immune-Boosting Tonic w/ On-Guard

  • The juice of one organic lemon – I usually try to get big ones
  • 1-2 tsp. organic maple syrup (you could use honey or agave nectar as well)
  • 2 drops of On-Guard essential oil
  • 12-16 oz. hot water
  • mix ingredients together in a hot beverage mug and enjoy! I think it would also taste good and be effective with room temperature or cool water in the summertime.

I drink this first thing in the morning. Even when I spend the night away from home, I bring the ingredients with me. It is very soothing and satisfying to me. I feel energized after I drink it. Could it replace your morning cup of coffee? Drinking fresh lemon juice upon awakening is also a known health tonic in Ayurvedic (a traditional health system founded in India long ago) texts to alkalize and cleanse the system. Yes, lemon juice is very alkaline in the body even though it is known as an acidic fruit.  Adding the drops of  On-Guard to the drink gives an added boost to my immune system.

The activity of microbes, bacteria, virus and fungi are at their peaks in the Tropics and hence most of the medicinal plants are found there too. Tea Tree is one such plant. It can cure some of the ugliest bacterial infections of the Tropics. Wounds, which are most prone to bacterial infections in this region, can be effectively cured and protected using this oil. Although this oil is seldom taken orally, but if so, in mild concentrations, can cure internal bacterial infections too, such as those in colon, stomach, intestines, excretory system and urinary system.

10 Basic Oils Every Home Needs


You might be asking yourself  “Why do I even need essential oils when I can just go to the Doctor?”  The reason is: Essential Oils are a safer, more natural approach to medicine with no side affects.  Eighty percent of the time your illness is a viral infection and there is no “over the counter” medicine to combat a virus, however,  Essential Oils have several studies showing there ability to kill a viral infection.

Every home needs ten basic essential oils. These oils are found in the Family Physician Kit and are available at a retail price of $166.00.  You can also set up your whole sale account for $150 (It’s like having a Costco Card for doTerra) and it comes with this full kit (along with Slim & Sassy ‘Metabolic’ blend)

I use the Family Physician Kit for most of my medicinal needs.  It has completely replaced my medicine cabinet.  Here are a few ways that I have had success in using the oils in this kit:



1. Lavender - It is the most versatile and popular oil. It is great for burns and takes aways pain and blistering fast! It works very well as a sleep aid and it has a very calming effect. It also works as a natural antihistamine and provides relief from insect bites. Rub on your feet each night for relaxation, or headache relief.

2.  Lemon - Use a drop of lemon every day in your water to keep your body acid free (alkaline). Lemon helps clean your lymphatic system.  It is excellent for sore throats– just place a drop on your tongue or gargle with lemon water. You can also use it as a cleaning agent. Lemon oil will clean ninety-nine percent of bacteria.

3.  Peppermint - It has been double-blind studied against Tylenol and was proven to be just as effective in treating headaches.  Peppermint Oil was reported by the Mayo Clinic as being one of the most promising treatments for I.B.S.  It is fantastic for digestive issues and when inhaled it will stimulate the brain to increase alertness.

4.  Melaleuca (Tea Tree Oil) – This is fantastic for acne since most acne medications are antibacterial creams, melaleuca is antibacterial.  It is also great for most skin conditions: general rashes, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, and MRSA.  You can rub it on your head to control dandruff and on your chest for coughs.

5.  Deep Blue  -  It reduces inflammations and relieves sore muscles and back aches.  Use this oil on all sport related injuries and will also relieve headaches.

6. Oregano - It is your heaviest fighter oil with several studies proving its ability to kill MRSA (staph infection). It is one of the most important oils to use when fighting any infection. It is a very hot oil and must be diluted with any carrier oil (Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Almond Oil etc) to apply topically.

7. On Guard - This oil helps to strengthen your immune system.  This is great for disinfecting the home via a diffuser or even mix with water to use as a cleaner to wipe down counters.  Rub this on your feet every night for cold prevention and can rub on teeth to help reduce plaque & gum infections.

8.  Breathe - Use this oil from respiratory infections,coughs, or asthma symptoms.  Rub it on your chest to help combat congestion.  Rub on chest and under your nostrils to help with snoring.  Unlike other Vapor Rubs, Breathe will actually assist your body in fighting off the infection.

9.  DigestZen - this blend will work for any digestive disorder: Acid Reflux, heartburn, H.Pylori Bacteria, diarrhea, Constipation, IBS, etc. Rub four drops of DigestZen on your stomach for all the above.  Seventy percent of your immune function is through your GI so if you have a compromised GI you have a compromised immune system. Using DigestZen will help strengthen immune system.

10. Frankincense - this oil contains sesquiterpenes, enabling it to go beyond the blood-brain barrier.  It may help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands.  Many people belief it helps with anxiety and depression.  Several studies have been done on Frankincense and its ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!   doTERRA Essential Oils work perfectly with the body to support normal functions of the body and dōTERRA products are safe to use on all ages.

A great relief to both of us.

I love Frankincense oil and have been using it, along with Helichrysum to help treat my lower back injury (I have three herniated discs that are getting better with lots of good alternative treatment!), sooth my nerves and uplift my spirit. I also add a little Frankincense EO and Rose Hip Seed oil to my face to soften and calm redness. I love it and even just added a feature on it to my personal prose blog The Most Beautiful Thing at http://www.mostbeautifulthing.com.

I’d like to end by saying that I’ve used Frankincense oil from other companies and think that doTERRA’s is the best quality, best fragrance, hands down!

Thanks and blessings,
-Heather Philipp


 

 

Ginger Essential Oil

Ginger Essential Oil

Botanically known as Zingiber officinale, ginger is one of the world’s ten favorite spices. It is an indispensable component of worldwide cuisine, and has also offered a variety of therapeutic benefits for thousands of years.

Over a period of 5,000 years, ginger traveled from Southeast Asia to the New World. Considered a treasure by some of the great figures of history, its ancient trade helped shape nations and insure its worldwide cultivation.

Ginger has a sweet, citrusy fragrance, and can be used aromatically, applied topically, and taken internally.

Well known for its ability to ease indigestion, ginger also helps ease nausea, is a vital part of weight management plans, and helps to eliminate those unwanted winter sniffles.*

 

Fun Facts:

  • doTERRA’s ginger essential comes from Sri Lanka
  • Ginger essential oil is included in dōTERRA’s DigestZen™ blend, which promotes digestive comfort and strength
  • Ginger essential oil can be combined with honey to flavor hot beverages or taken internally with honey to soothe a sore throat
  • Ginger is included in the Sassy Water recipe that is part of the new Flat Belly Diet. Try Founders’ Club Member Lil Shepherd’s revised recipe below, which spruces up the taste of water and promotes healthy digestion:

Sassy Oil Water Recipe
dōTERRA Ginger essential oil (2-3 drops)
dōTERRA Peppermint essential oil (2-3 drops)
dōTERRA Lemon essential oil (2-3 drops)

Add dōTERRA essential oils to 2 quarts of water and drink as part of your weight management plan.

 

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.

 

How has lemon oil helped you?

 

Mom Fighting Sore Throats!

“My sister-in-law gets strep throat every year with her children.  This year her children got it and she could feel a sore throat coming on herself.  My brother had her gargle  a  lemon and oregano essential oil mixture with water.  This is the only time she has ever not gotten strep throat with her children!

Here is how the treatment works, At the first sign of a sore throat ingest a drop of Lemon Essential Oil in water and gargle with 2 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and 1 drop of Oregano Essential Oil mixed in 1/4 cup of water.  Do not swallow the Lemon/Oregano mixture.  Repeat the gargle every hour until soreness subsides.  A drop of Lemon Essential Oil mixed with a teaspoon of honey can also help fight sore throats.

What a great tool for mothers to use to fight sore throats just as they are starting!”
