BOTANICAL SPA THERAPY: Whole Body Detoxification That Can Change Your Health

botanicalspatherapybookcoverSometimes, when I think about how sick I was in the past, it seems like another life or a dream.  It was a nightmare that never seemed to end.  I have my health back after environmental illness (EI), toxicant induced loss of tolerance (TILT), multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) and depression – all triggered by moving into a new home. It took me years of doctor’s visits and trial and error to restore my health.  I feel good on a daily basis and safe in all my environments.  That does not mean that all environments are safe for everyone. Most of my trial and error attempts to regain my health were natural as traditional medicine was not able to help me.

For those out there who are still suffering, do not give up.  The biggest change in my recovery came when I completed the botanical spa therapy detoxification.  I designed the botanical spa therapy recipe using my knowledge of the medicinal properties of botanical plants, learned through my studies.  This is the one main natural strategies that has had the biggest impact in regaining my health and I see the same gains in my clients. I have had clients who have had chronic back pain for years who are now pain free as the result of completing the botanical spa therapy. If you have any type of chronic symptoms or conditions consider botanical spa therapy.

You can find my Botanical Spa Therapy whole body detoxification recipe and instructions in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION.

DIGGING DEEPER: For a Healthier You

DIGGING DEEPER3

Have you been experiencing the same chronic symptoms and conditions for a very long time? If so, it may be time to look deeper to achieve the symptom and condition free status that is possible.

Over the many years that I have worked with clients with a variety of acute and chronic symptoms and conditions I have become aware of a common theme.  Symptomatic relief, whether conventional or natural, will take care of symptoms; for long term relief or permanent elimination of symptoms, one must dig deeper.  More is possible if you ‘dig deeper’ in the quest to resolve your symptoms and conditions.  It does require an open mind, open to the new and emerging strategies available.

  1. You can find most of the ‘digging deeper solutions’ in depth strategies in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation, my blog and my website.
  2. Customized visualizations to improve immunosurveillance, immunofocus and immunoresponse can also be found in my book.  You have great power to change your cells including your dna using visualization.  Read the amazing research on the power of visualization at the Heart Math Institute. Learn how to customize your visualization using information from your test results and medical reports. You can find this information in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation. My book contains a list of visualizations to help guide the body to continue apoptosis and initiate an effective immune response.
  3. Reverse engineering longevity information can be found in the Blue Zones book.  Buy the book and get started today.

4. Learn how to use The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. Buy the book and get started today.

to reverse your health challenges and have a more fulfilling life. Whatever image you put into your subconscious mind is used to direct your body’s response. Author Joseph Murphy writes about his recovery from a malignancy of the skin in the Chapter 3 section The Subconscious Heals A Malignancy of The Skin, page 55 to 56.

5. Learn how to use your mind to carry out epigenetic engineering in your body. Your genes respond to your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. The way you use your mind shapes your brain, turning genes on and off in ways that can dramatically affect your health and wellbeing. Buy The Genie in Your Genes and get started today.

SKIN CANCER PREVENTION & PROTECTION: How I Stack My Odds!

healthyskinSkin cancer is on the rise.  It is a subject that I have tried very hard to avoid think about in recent years.  The reality is, we are all vulnerable.  More so if we spent years bathing in the sun or tanning beds. Because of the loss of a dear friend and my husband to melanoma in the past, and the recurring melanoma diagnoses over the years in our extended family; skin cancer it is upfront and personal for me. Those who know me know that I am constantly searching for information on cancer prevention and cancer therapies.As we all know prevention is the best insurance against receiving a skin cancer or any cancer diagnosis.  Have any suspicious, or moles that others consider suspicious, examined by a qualified healthcare practitioner. Below are the strategies that I have researched and implemented and recommend to my clients and those who ask.

  1. SUN PROTECTION & ANTIOXIDANTS: Life Saving Measures – I wrote this post in May 2013 so will not rewrite the information in this post. This post contains names of sunscreens that are considered to be safer in terms of non-toxic ingredients without compromised protection.
  2. SKIN CANCER: Increasing Antioxidants At The Skin Level – I wrote this post in October of 2014 so will not rewrite the information in this post.
  3. My skin cancer protection body lotion:

blue pump bottle  frankincense rosemary clove doterra-fractionated-coconut-oil

You can read the scientific research behind my essential oil selection in the previous blog post #1 and #2 as well in my blog post FRANKINCENSE – POTENTIAL CANCER THERAPY RESEARCH: A Modern Day Gift of the Magi. Research shows that rosemary reduces melanoma cancer cell proliferation.

PRACTITIONER RECOMMENDATION: Scientific studies indicate the benefit of essential oils to protect DNA and support the body to repair DNA damage. Regardless of what physical or mental health challenges you are affected with, DDR Prime is an excellent must have add on to your other therapies.DDR PRIME View Dr. Hill’s interview on DDR Prime at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oVDtWNn3rw Order your supply at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines

I use a 50ml glass pump bottle.  You will have to experiment with the oils to see how many drops work best for you. Every person’s skin is different. I use one drop of the clove, 6 drops of the frankincense, 3 drops of the rosemary and then top up with the fractionated coconut oil which draws the oils into the skin layers. I also take frankincense and rosemary internally in a capsule. Order your pure therapeutic grade essential oils at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines. Learn more about using essential oils for symptom relief, healing and cancer protection at My Green Medicine Cabinet.

4.  Eat a plant based diet. I made this choice initially due to the National Geographic research on the people who live in the Blue Zones of the world who live the longest and healthiest.
The Blue Zones website has developed nine reverse engineering longevity strategies or lessons that you can follow wherever you live.  I have seen so many loved ones suffer in their final years that I wanted a better outcome. The are some interesting statistics on melanoma cancer outcomes for patients who adapted a plant based diet in combination with treatments. You can find this and other melanoma research .information on the Melanoma Research Foundation website.

5Detox regularly.  Eating healthy is a start for ongoing natural detoxification promotion. I continue to use my Botanical Spa Therapy whole body detoxification bath recipe (which can be found in my book) occasionally as well as my detoxification tea mix of dandelion root, cleavers and milk thistle plant. Dandelion root has been found to induce melanoma and other cancer cell death.

6. Customized visualizations to improve immunosurveillance, immunofocus and immunoresponse.  You have great power to change your cells including your dna using visualization.  Read the amazing research on the power of visualization at the Heart Math Institute. Learn how to customize your visualization using information from your test results and medical reports. You can find this information in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation. My book contains a list of visualizations to help guide the body to continue apoptosis and initiate an effective immune response.

7. Learn how to use The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

to reverse your health challenges and have a more fulfilling life. Whatever image you put into your subconscious mind is used to direct your body’s response.

STOP, START and CHANGE: Strategies for a healthier you this year!

stop start change

Every new year usually comes with thoughts of ‘what do I need to stop, start or change’ for a healthier me? The possibilities are vast. Where do you begin? Social media offers a non-stop stream of ‘must do’ suggestions to get you healthy. There are many opinions on what is best for you on social media, magazines, the news and books. Keep in mind that you are unique and as such may need a more customized approach.

My recommendations to get you started on a healthier you this year:

Learn strategies from the places in the world where people live the longest and healthiest.  By the way; they do not go to the gym and work out or take mega supplements.  Eating a plant based diet comes with many health benefits and research has shown that it can reverse disease like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. How Not To Die of Cancer.

 

  • Whatever your health challenges, reading the right books can be a great well-being resource. I read so many books on my well-being journey, desperately searching for ‘the cure’ to my health challenges. I read, tried and tested many recommendations and have compiled the ‘short list’ for you. Learn how to overcome your well-being challenges by reading and implementing the holistic strategies that I used to overcome my multiple health challenges in my books.http://www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/books.htm. You can find an extensive list of recommended books to help restore and maintain your health in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT: The Natural Way

naturalpainrelief

Chronic pain is a constant companion to many people.  My mother suffered from chronic sciatic pain for many years.  The treatment plan included the traditional pain management therapies of Tylenol (various dosages) and eventually cortisone injections.  Cortisone is a corticosteroid medication that is very effective at decreasing pain and inflammation in joints and other structures in the body. Research has shown that corticosteroid medications can cause bone loss and result in osteoporosis if taken orally or intravenously (IV) in high doses or for long periods. My mom is now 91 and still on many synthetic pain medications for chronic pain and has serious osteoporosis.  Once a woman of tall stature, my mom is now completely stooped over unable to straighten up.

Although I have had periods of extreme pain in my life I am blessed that I do not regularly suffer from chronic pain. Recently I suffered from pain due to whiplash and I have one sacroiliac joint that sometimes screams at me with pain when I do heavy lifting. As a holistic wellness practitioner I work with many clients who have or have had chronic pain periods in their lives. Their goal, which is the same as mine, is to find pain relief solutions that are free of the harmful, unwanted side effects and that result in more serious challenges in the future like osteoporosis.

There are many natural pain management strategies available which are more ‘liver friendly’ as well as environmentally friendly; the waste from potent medications inevitably ends up going down the drain and into the environment. I use a combination of natural pain relief strategies which include energy therapies, visualization, meditation, massage and essential oil therapy and recommend these to my clients.

I was introduced to doterra essential oils several years ago and was amazed at the therapeutic properties they provided. Not only are they a great natural pain relief choice, but unlike traditional pain medications, they promote healing – an ultimate bonus. Because they are all natural they will not hurt the environment. Some essential oils are adulterated, which means other unknown oils have been added to them. doterra essential oils are pure therapeutic grade, which is why they are the oils that I use and recommend.

CLIENT FEEDBACK: Natural essential oil pain management recipes that have worked for my clients and my pain challenges 

  • Marjoram which has muscle relaxant properties applied full strength topically to the area of pain provided a topical anesthetic type of relief.  Applied in layers it provided lasting relief.
  • Marjoram taken internally with frankincense which has anti-inflammatory properties (6 drops each) every three to four hours provided relief equivalent to Tylenol 3 without unwanted side effects. Some clients put the drops in capsules others put the drops in water. This combination provided one client with broken bones relief equivalent to the Tylenol 3 she was taking without the unwanted side effects. This was my ‘go to’ for my whiplash pain which also rippled down my spine to my sacrum.
  • A roller bottle blend of helichrysum, lavender, marjoram and roman chamomile used topically helped with nerve pain.
  • Peppermint or wintergreen applied topically to the temples and back of the neck provided almost instant headache pain relief.
  • Wintergreen applied to the sacroiliac joint provided pain relief and the added bonus of bone healing and regeneration – great  for osteoporosis prevention which can happen at joints with chronic stress and strain.
  • A combination (3 drops each) of vetiver, marjoram and lemon taken internally (in a veggie capsule) provided pain relief as an alternative to Tylenol (500 mg).
  • A combination of frankincense, marjoram and lemongrass (20 drops each in a roller bottle topped up with FCO) used topically provided pain relief.
  • Deep blue (30 drops in a roller bottle topped up with FCO) which is a combination of wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, ylang ylang, helichrysum, blue Tansy, blue chamomile, and osmanthus provided instant relief when applied topically. It also comes in a cream rub.
  • Copaiba is the newest doterra oils that is providing amazing pain relief results for many.  You can listen to the information about why this essential oil is so effective in managing pain at

Every person’s pain is different and every person reacts differently to pain and pain remedies, synthetic and natural.  Finding the ‘right fit’ for your pain takes some tweaking. The same is true for using essential oils for pain management. The preceding information is from client feedback and also my personal experience.  What works for you may be different. If you would like to try essential oil therapy for pain management contact me at www.mydoterra.com/elisbethlhines and I can guide you. Follow ‘My Green Medicine Cabinet’ to learn what essential oils I use for symptom relief and healing.

SUPER BUG READY? Keep Your Immune System Prepared

superbugs-info

Last night’s news report about nine people dying in London, Ontario due to Strep A was disturbing. Not worried? Is it really a threat? Watch the Time Health video below by By Alice Park and Lon Tweeten May 5, 2017 and find out.

 

Every day we are exposed to many viruses and bacteria. A healthy properly working immune system is your best defense against the super bugs and viruses out there. There are many factors that can interfere with the body’s natural ongoing immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Synthetic chemicals, heavy metals and body pollution are just a few of the potential interfering concerns. They can interfere with the natural body communication required for correct immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Stress is also a serious detriment to a healthy, accurate immune response.

Antibiotic resistance is an ongoing concern in the health care system. A recent post in The Journal of Infectious Diseases & Preventive Medicine, titled Essential Oils and Future Antibiotics: New Weapons against Emerging ‘Superbugs’? offers hope for the fight against superbugs.

According to the Journal article:

Emerging evidence has shown that many essential oils have both non-specific and specific mechanisms of action which varies based on the relative abundance and chemical composition of the components. Elucidation of the mechanism of action of these compounds may enable identification of new antibiotic targets and exploitation of novel biochemical pathways; pathways not currently targeted by existing antibiotics. Additionally, combination of existing drugs with essential oils and/or components may provide an alternative approach to combat emerging drug resistance. Since antibiotic resistance is currently outpacing research and development to find new drugs, humanity is facing a return to the ‘pre-antibiotic era’. Perhaps the remedies of the past combined with scientific study may provide the antibiotics of tomorrow.”

In summary, essential oil therapy has a promising future to protect you against super bugs.  Learning about the immune protecting properties of essential oils and incorporating them into your health regime to be prepared is a great defense.

On guard spritz Green gift pack

doTerra On Guard is my ‘go to’ for immune support and protection. I take it internally, a few drops in water, especially when I make visits to my mother in the nursing home. I have a spritz bottle that I keep in my purse to spray my hands after contact with shopping carts and other potential contact threats. Adding a few drops of On Guard to my home made foaming hand sanitizer ensures protection for me and my visitors.  Diffusing a few drops of On Guard in combination with Wild Orange is a delightful morning ritual. My cold and flu remedy (in the picture above) have a combination of On Guard, Tea Tree and Oregano – a great protection and recovery remedy.

My immune support and protection regime would not be complete without addressing the ‘stress factor’. In times of stress I add stress busting essential oils internally, topically and in my diffuser. My ‘go to’ stress busters include the products below. Get yours at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines.
