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.
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.
Essential oils are 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 to my home made foaming hand sanitizer ensures protection for me and my visitors. Diffusing a few drops in combination with Wild Orange is a delightful morning ritual. My cold and flu remedy (in the picture above) have a combination of oils – 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 by contactin me. Learn more about these products in ‘MY GREEN MEDICINE CABINET’
