Have you ever asked yourself a question: why our bodies break down over time? The reason this breakdown occurs is actually very simple: the body stops responding to instructions from the genes because the right communication depends on having healthy cells in every tissue, organ and system of the body. This communication ensures that messages are delivered and received to modulate cell production, initiate and sustain cell repair, and perform other restorative processes.
For example, if the heart cells do not get the right messages, they simply cannot carry out the genetic instructions to keep the heart functioning well. So our health depends on turning on the genes that communicate messages to the cells so that the cells can perform their functions. The molecules involved in this communication are called cell signaling molecules.
Cell signaling in the body stimulates the pathways for gene expression. These are genetic pathways that carry life-sustaining instructions from the genes...
Before I share with you my essential oil detox blends, I just wanted to emphasize that as powerful as essential oils are, they cannot work miracles. They are not a substitute for a good diet, adequate sleep, clean lifestyle, physical activity, etc. In my approach to autoimmunity (and health overall), I combine nutrition, mind-transforming modalities, herbal medicine, bioenergetics (incl. energetic medicines), and essential oils. It is this truly holistic approach that produces the amazing results I get with my clients. I am sure you can appreciate that when you integrate essential oils with other modalities that promote healing, you will have a much greater impact, compared to looking at essential oils as that one-stop solution to all your health problems.
1. These days, many people claim to be experts on essential oils but the truth is that many blogs that offer advice on essential oils are not written by qualified practitioners. Be careful as...
It is hard to believe but there are still skeptics out there who consider detox protocols completely unnecessary. The reason they give is that apparently “our bodies can get rid of toxins naturally without any input from us”. It is true our bodies are equipped with some incredibly sophisticated detoxification mechanisms. The problem is that over the last century or so we have been introducing toxic chemicals into our lives at such a ridiculous rate that our bodies are now struggling to cope with the toxic overload.
The beautiful thing about the human body is that it is able to adapt to changes but adaptation takes time and, as I said, that change is happening too rapidly. As a result, we are getting clogged up with toxins as our bodies are working very hard trying to mitigate that. Toxic body means inflammation and that is bad news because inflammation is linked to every single chronic condition, including autoimmunity.
Toxins are omnipresent. They are in the air we...
