Eliminate Pain with Essential Oils (NOT Toxic Painkillers)

January 4, 2018

Chronic pain is an unfortunate reality that many people have to deal with on a daily basis. It’s estimated that more than 100 million Americans are burdened by pain, and a good majority of them report that their pain severely impacts their quality of life.

A survey known as the Voices of the Chronic Pain found that, of people suffering from chronic pain, 60% experience “breakthrough” (i.e. very intense) pain every day, 77% feel depressed, 70% have difficulty concentrating, 74% have low energy levels, and 86% have difficulty sleeping.

And perhaps the saddest finding of all was that 51% of these people feel helpless to control their pain.

This data makes it abundantly clear that aches and pains are not just a minor inconvenience—not just “a part of growing older”—but rather a significant problem that deeply affects the lives of those suffering from it.

If you or a loved one can relate to these statistics, know this: You don’t have to feel helpless. There are plenty of steps you can take to alleviate your pain, quickly, safely, and naturally.

Tea Tree Oil

November 12, 2017

Throughout history, tea tree oil has been used for many therapeutic and medicinal purposes. According to belief of the Aboriginal people of Australia, tea tree oil has amazing magical healing powers. There is even a tribal legend about the hidden treasure of the tea tree, which is described as an enchanted lagoon where the leaves of the tree were soaked after falling in, infusing and enriching the waters. In order to get all physical and mystical benefits that the waters possessed, the village people should immerse themselves in the natural herbal bath. When the Australian Aboriginal people have long recognized tea tree as multi-faceted healing oil, the rest of the world thought it was just a weed.  For a long time Aboriginal tribesmen used tea tree to cure infected wounds and reduce poisons in the system (especially those given by spider bites), tea tree was only recognized by Western cultures in the early 1900s.

Turmeric and Black Pepper

November 10, 2017

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a culinary spice that spans cultures – it is a major ingredient in Indian curries, and makes American mustard yellow. But evidence is accumulating that this brightly colored relative of ginger is a promising disease-preventive agent as well, probably due largely to its anti inflammatory action. It’s a popular herb of Ayurvedic and Chinese traditional medicine, and its therapeutic uses date back thousands of years. According to numerous researches, turmeric root can have a significant positive effect on neurological, cardiovascular, metabolic, immune system, and cellular health. It may even help support your thyroid and promote longevity. The natural compound that gives turmeric its rich golden color is curcumin.

ESSENTIAL OILS FOR THAT PESKY WINTER COUGH

November 1, 2017

To anyone who has ever had a cough, it is a common perception that nighttime brings on the worst of any cough.  Especially as  adults, a cough can last longer than it should because we don’t get proper sleep and enough rest to allow our bodies to heal.  Getting to sleep, and staying asleep, can make all the difference in how quickly we return to health.  Try taking ImmuPro capsules at least 30 minutes before bed to help relax your body and support your natural immune system, in addition to the other oils you’re taking for your cough and for sleep.  Lavender and RC may be applied to the chest and back as well.
