If you turn on the TV, listen to the news or surf the Internet, it is hard not to hear about the latest health scare: H1N1 virus, otherwise known as “Swine Flu”.
We really don’t need to be in a panic about Swine Flu but, let’s face it, there are always bacteria viruses and flu germs around. It is wise to know and use natural and safer ways to protect ourselves and our families. What a powerful tool for protecting ourselves from germs we have with therapeutic grade essential oils. Many essential oils repel bacteria, virus, microbes, infection, fungus, are antiseptic, and a host of other things.
Dr. Valnet points out that pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria do not become resistant to essential oils as they do to modern-day synthetic antibiotic drugs. He states, “Infectious microbes do not appear to become accustomed to the essential oils as they do to the many forms of treatment using antibiotics.” One reason virus and bacteria cannot mutate with the essential oils is because of the chemical constituents that make up essential oils. One essential oil can have anywhere from 200- 800 chemical constituents. It is impossible for a virus to mutate and adapt to that many chemical constituents. Drugs are made by isolating one or two constituents. A virus can easily mutate and adapt to the drug, making it useless.
Blends like Thieves and Exodus II (and the accompanying supplement Exodus) I always have on hand, along with other single oils – such as peppermint, clove, lemon,oregano, lavender, only to name a few. When illness strikes, you need to have them already on hand.
Bacteria are everywhere & some of it could be deadly. Common places that are thriving with bacteria: door knobs, elevator buttons, bathroom faucets, table tops, counter tops and the list goes on. This bacteria is spread in many ways. You pick it up whenever you touch anything.
During cold & flu season and we are exposed all kinds of flu viruses. Colds can be caused by over 100 different types of viral pathogens, and flu viruses continually mutate from year to year. This makes it difficult for you to develop immunity to these ailments.
Although many oils will protect, my number one favorite oil blend for protecting myself and my family . . .
THIEVES OIL BLEND (Order Code #3423)Thieves is a “must have” for everyone, especially during the cold and flu season. It was created from research about the thieves during the 16th century plague in England who rubbed oils all over their bodies to protect themselves while they were robbing the dead and dying. It is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at Weber State University for its potent germ killing properties. Thieves was found to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.
It’s very important, not only to rub oils on your body, because it increases the oxygen and increases the immune defense system, but to diffuse the oils in your home so the oils will kill aerosols, virus and bacteria. That’s where I really like to encourage people to look at how they can diffuse the oils in their homes and clear up the aerosolproblems that we deal with.”
Hundreds of Scientific Reports Confirm Antimicrobial Action of Essential Oils in Thieves Blend “In recent years (1987-2001) a large number of essential oils and their constituents have been investigated for their antimicrobial properties…in more than 500 reports.
Testing from Weber State University, found Thieves to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.
Highly concentrated, a drop or two works wonders.
Eliminate airborne bacteria by diffusing Thieves in your home and office. Diffuse only 10 minutes a.m. and p.m.
Essential oils of spices and herbs (Thyme, Oregano, Mint, Cinnamon, Sage and Clove) were found to possess the strongest antimicrobial properties among the many tested.” (D. Kalemba; A. Kunika. Current Medicinal Chemistry. Vol. 10, No. 10. pg. 813-829. abstract.)
Save money by reducing doctor bills.
During flu season, it is important to wash your hands often and refrain from touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Many of our colds and flus can be prevented if we just do the simple task of washing your hands. I don’t mean rinsing them with water either. This means scrubbing your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. Add one of the Thieves products to this and you have powerful tools for preventing illness.
Consider Thieves Spray, Thieves Foaming Hand Soap or Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier.
I also recommend a drop Thieves oil on the hands and rubbing your hands together.
Drink plenty of water – Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water.
Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink.
Healthy Diet – Of course maintaining a good healthy diet comprised of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and organic meats is another way to keep your body clean and in good working order!
NingXia Red Enhance Immunity
In a landmark preclinical study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, researchers determined that wolfberry juice and NingXia Red provides immune-boosting benefits.
It is also important to get plenty of rest and exercise.
