I was so upset I thought I had ruined a brand new shirt. I put it on and noticed it had grease splatter all down the front(when will I learn to wear a apron). I rewashed it just hoping it would come out but of course it was all still there. I had read somewhere that lemon oil helps with grease stains so I ran and got my lemon oil and put it on each spot and then sprinkled the shirt with some Arm and Hammer super washing soda and threw it in the wash with the rest of the clothes and to my amazement it came out perfect. I was so excited. So for those that say Young Living is too expensive and this and that , actually Young Living has saved this family money time and time again. I use them for so many purposes!!!!

I have so much to say in this post so I hope I get it all out as I know just how important it is to many people that are struggling with thyroid / adrenal issues. This is becoming a epidemic I believe. So many are struggling with this and it affects so much of our bodies and lives. I “think” I am finally starting to heal but it is not without a lot of work and focusing on my health.
I am a mother to 10 so putting myself first seems so selfish sometimes but then I realized I actually wanted to be here for my kids. Ya’ know, if we do not take care of ourselves it WILL catch up to us. So first in my new protocol for healing is taking time for self. That may mean different things for different days because with a large family things change quickly. IT may mean a quite devotion time with the Lord(something I want to get back into daily as it makes tremendous difference), just sitting out on our screen porch with a cup of tea(or coffee, something I am trying to work on getting rid of), going out with my husband. I will tell you this, I think this has helped the most. Going out and being with my husband helps my stress level so much. I realize some are not in that season of being able to do that right now as you do not have older ones but it will come.
The next thing I have done has found a good doctor. A NATURAL one! Please choose a doctor very carefully. I realize also that this is very hard these days but they ARE out there. I have found a wonderful. We have to drive a bit to get there but it is worth it! Have correct testing . I know , I know it is expensive but your life is worth it! Pray as God for guidance in this decision. Salvia testing is very important along with antibodies testing to see if you are experiences a auto immune issues like I am.
Next finding the right medicines, supplements, other natural things, and foods that will help you heal. I am using several things and the first time in years do not feel like death when I wake up. I am able to wake up and start my day and be the mother I used to be. I am very thankful the Lord for this. I am using several things from Young Living essential oils. I used Progessence Plus for my low progesterone and to balance my hormones, Endoflex for my overall endocrine system , and the several oils to help stabilize my hormones like Nutmeg(great for thyroid and adrenal fatigue), Ylang Ylang oil has made a huge difference in my mood!!! I also use a few others for different things but those are the most used. Also using supplements , one my natural doctor put me on called Thyroid PX. I am also using Vitex and Sulferzyme(from Young Living, have good enzymes is important). Also keeping your other health issues in check will surely help your adrenals. I have horrible seasonal allergies which is really taxing on your adrenals but I have managed them better this year even though the pollen has been terrible. Sulferzyme mentioned above will help with that and I also use Stinging Nettle. Also using oils Lemon, Peppermint and the most used Lavender for my allergies.
This is what is working for me along with trying to rest and enjoy life. Plain and simple. I am no doctor and cannot tell you what will work for you. I am in no way telling you that. But I am stating what is working for me. It has been a long process of finding what will work. I also want to say while starting some of these I felt WORSE but it was because my hormones were adjusting so please give things time before you decide they are not working. I would love to talk with you if you have any questions and will definitely love to pray for you during this hard road. I am confident the Lord is guiding me in the direction He wants me to go.
I am learning so much as I go on this journey of chemical free living. One thing I like to share with people is IT IS A PROCESS. It can get overwhelming, especially when you are researching and seeing all these things you can do to get chemicals out of your home. It can seem expensive, time consuming, and just plain overwhelming. It does NOT have to be this way though and I want to share that more than anything with others. Just take things a step at a time. That is why I love how Young Living has things set up. Like their essential rewards for instance. While changing over products I started with things we used everyday like toothpaste , shampoo, soaps, etc.. I put those on my essential rewards along with any other oils I needed and household cleaner. I get points for these purchases so I am actually getting something back but most importantly I am slowly working towards getting nasty chemicals out of my home.
You are not spending extra money just changing out products. Yes, they may be a little more expensive but what are you sacrificing with the products that are cheap. What health issues are they causing? In the long run are you not saving money? I really believe chemicals are the main thing that messed my adrenals and hormones up so bad. I will have you know just once I stopped using air freshners, plug ins, and candles I stopped having headaches. Those simple steps can save you in lots of areas. I just use my diffuser with the oils we love OR the oils we need at that time. Plus not only does the house smell good we are also getting health BENEFITS.
Then after you are eating REAL foods, getting chemicals out of your home, etc. then you can work on the supplements you need and those sorts of things . It is a process and does not have to all be done at one time. You will be thankful you did it and will see health improvements pretty quickly if you are like me and used lots of chemicals. I am not working on getting a natural make up to replace the toxic kind I use.
Then lastly, just do the best you can. Also I urge others to learn how to take care of their families. God has given us so many things to helps us take care of our families. WE need to know how to do this!! We need to not rely on others to help us but to know how to take care of things. I think this is vitally important. So are you ready to start the road to chemical free living?
It is really easy. You can get rid of the toxic filled chemicals in your medicine cabinet by joining with Young Living and becoming a member. With a premium kit you will receive all the oils you will need in everyday life. I would be here all day sharing stories of how we have used just the everyday oils kit and all the medicines it has replaced. Contact me here if you would like more information.
Since joining Young Living I have heard this many times. And at first really I felt the same way. And yes, some things are more expensive BUT what is in the least expensive things you are using daily?
It is not about adding products to what you already buy but substituting chemical free products. And I want to say since joined with Young Living we have actually saved money. Yes, the toothpaste might be more expensive but what is in that cheaper toothpaste you are using and actually what is in this toothpaste kills bacteria that causes tooth decay, gum disease,etc. So you are actually using preventative means which in the long run with save you TONS of money. And who doesn’t want to invest a little in their health monthly?
When using money on over the counter drugs think about how much you spend during a cold or some type of illness.
As you see in the picture I have a stockpile of otc meds. We usually go right through those and purchase much more every year but not this year!! As you can see none were used! So in the end do I think Young Living is expensive? No Way!!!
I hear all the time, “but it is so expensive”. Well for my family it has actually saved us money . Yes, at the beginning we had to put out money but it has saved us money in the fact that we have not hardly been sick at all. I have relied only on our oils for the most part for everything that has come up. We have saved money by not having to go to the doctor, having 10 children you can imagine how expensive that would be. Not having to buy all those over the counter meds and prescription meds. And just plain and simply not getting sick like everyone else around us has. Yes, we have had sniffles and sneezes and those sorts of things and have tried to get the stomach bug but I have been able to knock them out and for that I am thankful.
Also I have started making our own baby shampoo with just a few ingredients and our dish liquid. So I actually KNOW what is in all that we are using. I also make my wipes solution that I use with my cloth wipes. I want to start making our own laundry detergent soon. Here is links to what I followed for our dish liquid. I used Young Living’s Thieves and Citrus Fresh as the oils. Tea tree would be a great one as well. http://naturesnurtureblog.com/2013/06/17/homemade-dish-soap-that-actually-works/
Here is what I used for the baby shampoo http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/ed/21/49/ed214967e6064e33b90023830c9c0e71.jpg
The most important thing during the season of hacking coughs, aches and pains, horrible headaches, and just the worst sicknesses ever is boosting the immune system. Boosting the immune system and using preventative measures is the best thing you can do during the cold and flu season. And having a plan in action is the next best thing in case you get sick. I have learned this the hard way. With several little kids we always get horrible things and almost get everything that is going around. But this year was different. The only thing I did different was essential oils and just trying to stay on top of things and worked on boosting everyone’s immune system as much as possible.
Boosting the immune system will look different for the different ages in your family but will also look different for adults. You have to work harder to keep the immune system in check when you are battling issues like my husband and I with our thyroids. First for everyone I think a good probiotic is one of the best things you could ever purchase. I believe all kids need to be taking a good probiotic. Also use more natural methods to boost your immune system and if you happen to get sick use natural remedies. Using conventional methods , like over prescribed antibiotics, usually break down the good flora in your gut and cause much more issues than you would of had. After you are taking a good antibiotic I also give something to my children called Well Child from Vitacost.com. It has elderberry in it which is very beneficial for boosting the immune system.
As for someone for instance like my husband and I who already have trouble with our thyroid(which is a auto immune issue) making sure you are taking a correct dose of Vitamin D is helpful. Especially in the winter when we do not get our natural Vitamin D. As most know Vitamin C is really important as well. Using Thieves oil mixed with a carrier oil has been the difference for us this year. This is the first year we have done that and it made a huge. Also used our Young Living diffuser and diffused it. Putting Lemon oil in your water is a great way to boost the immune system as well. So as you see , there are many natural methods for boosting the immune system. Now , we are going to go over natural remedies if you do happen to catch a nasty bug because as we know our bodies are not perfect, we live in a fallen world and nothing can be perfect so we WILL get sick. That is why it is important to have the stuff we need when this arrives.
A natural antibiotic is oregano oil.
*Put 1 – 4 drops of oregano essential oil into a capsule and swallow it. This may knock an infection out overnight if you catch it quick enough.
*Mix oregano oil and coconut oil and apply to the feet.
Also continue using thieves on the feet and in the diffuser. As always when I am talking about essential oils I am referring only to Young Living as that is the ONLY brand my family uses and trust. Cooking in coconut oil , adding it in to smoothies, etc. will be very beneficial as well. There are many things you can do without using chemical laden over the counter meds that only cause other problems. God has given us so many resources so that we may keep ourselves as healthy as possible. Through research and being prepared we can benefit our families greatly. I think it is very important as a mother and wife to know as much as I can about wellness and try to keep my family as well as I can. I would love to hear your thoughts and also answer any questions you might have. Here’s to better health and wellness during this new year!
NingXia Red has made a tremendous difference in the overall health of many people all over. It has made a difference in the health of my husband and I as well. I feel while talking about health, Young Living , and essential oils it is very important to let others know about NingXia Red and it’s health benefits. While some say it is too expensive , not taking care of your health cost so much more. And just think how much money our society puts out for over the counter meds, prescription meds, and doctors visits. Here is a video about NingXia Red.
