It was suggested to me by one of my favorite clients that I need to update my blog site more often! So, I thought I would use this down-time to do that (as I sit in the Albuquerque Sunport, waiting on my flight to leave to Salt Lake City...and it's already been delayed...twice).
I am on my way to SLC for a doTERRA Essential Oil *Empower* 2011 conference. Since I am so new to the oils, I thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to learn more, while getting for stay a few extra days and visit my family when it's over. My Uncle Bob, Aunt Lynda, and cousins Heather and Ryan are all there with their spouses and kiddo's. I haven't seen any of them in about 5 years, except for Uncle Bob because he makes a yearly pilgrimage to ABQ to visit his 94-year old mother (Nana).
I am so excited about this conference! I want to know everything there is to know about oils and how to use them more effectively in my Kinesiology practice. I am finding as I experiment with my Family Physician's Kit that oils are used for all SORTS of things! The kit I bought is a nice starter kit with oils that are safe and easy to use for almost every ailment.
Deep Blue: used it on my Mom, who was convinced she had a hip fracture, but I believe really has some muscle problems in her right hip. She called me specifically after I worked on her to tell me that the oil took the pain right away! Deep Blue is the essential oil and natural equivalent of something like BenGay. Mostly for muscle pain. She loves the stuff and I need to order a bottle just for her when I get back home!
Lavender: I put a drop under my nose before I go to bed for a nice, relaxing sleep!
Lemon: Just a drop or two in your water, and you not only have a great-tasting refreshing beverage, but also an 'internal cleanser' of sorts.
Frankincense: Used most commonly for relaxation and mood support...you can also use it for "mood enhancement" - NIIIIIIIICE!
DigestZen: I put a drop of this fantastic elixer on my tummy or my feet when I think I may have eaten something that could 'potentially' give me trouble later. And SHAZAM...no problems!
OnGuard: Boosts the immune system unlike synthetic alternatives! Oh yeah, and you can use it on countertops too!
I am looking forward to learning what else I can use them for...as soon as my plane leaves Albuquerque!

About a month ago, my friend, Judy introduced me to the world of "Colloidal Silver." I didn't know much about it, but it sure tested as something beneficial and healthy for my lungs. After doing some research, I bought this little bottle of the stuff at Vitamin Cottage (it's not cheap!) This stuff is like magic! It's got amazing healing powers -
It is used "to heal a startling variety of maladies, including internal infections such as colds and flu, food poisoning, urinary tract infections, candida yeast infections, infections of the internal organs such as the kidneys and liver, sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis and gonorrhea, tetanus, and even deadly diseases like bubonic plague, anthrax disease (aka anthrax) and numerous others. Indeed, it was discovered that there were hardly any infectious organisms in existence which were not subject to the incredible antimicrobial qualities of colloidal silver! In laboratory tests, over 650 different infectious microorganisms were found to be no match for colloidal silver! What's more, as research into colloidal silver progressed over the years, it was discovered that many forms of chronic degenerative disease also responded positively to this wondrous mineral, including cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Crohn's colitis, Type II diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Wegener's disease, and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer's. " (www.thesilveredge.com)
This stuff increases the immune systems ability to rid itself of toxins. I've been taking it every day for about a month. I have been coughing less, my skin is softer, digestion is better, and I have more energy. I self-test to see how much I should take that day, and it's usually somewhere between half a cup and a cup and a half, but that's just me. You can kill viruses, bacteria, even MRSA with this stuff!
So, today I bought a machine so I can make my own!

My first blog comes to you *live* from inside my Far Infrared Sauna.....I've owned this sauna for 4 years. I bought it after sitting in one at the Wholistic Kinesiology Institute and loving the results. After just one treatment, I felt better. I felt like I could breathe better. So I bought one. I sit right up next to the heating element so that it is on my lungs in the back. Sitting in here on a regular basis (about 3-4 times a week for 20-30 minutes) burns A LOT of calories! The Far Infrared energy penetrates 3 inches into the skin forcing sweat (and toxins) out of your body. I am sweating up a storm in here! It's like I ran 2-3 miles - WHEW! Here are some other awesome benefits of Sauna Therapy:
TOP 10 REASON TO BUY (or USE) AN INFRARED SAUNA
