ESSENTIAL OIL THERAPY FOR SYMPTOM RELIEF: Skip Harmful Drug Side Effects For Healthy Longevity


As a holistic wellness practitioner I am always counselling clients on strategies and tools to help them live long healthy lives.  There are times when one must resort to drugs for symptom relief and treatment. In many cases people quickly resort to over the counter and prescriptions drugs for the relief of symptoms and conditions as a first resort.  Many of these drugs come with unwanted and harmful side effects. Your liver, your most important organ for healthy longevity, is often compromised due to these drugs. A healthy properly functioning liver is crucial to healthy, vibrant longevity and disease prevention. Read more at my blog post MAINTAINING HEALTHY LONGEVITY: Keep Your Liver Happy in the Midst of Toxins, Distress and Happy Hour

Essential oil therapy offers a healthy alternative to the harmful side effects that present with many drugs. If you are looking for healthy, vibrant, symptom free longevity I would strongly recommend implementing strategies, including essential oil therapy for a ‘healthier you’. Therapeutic grade pure essential oils come with healing properties that can provide long term health benefits. Essential oils are powerful antioxidants that neutralize or quench free radicals, helping to protect DNA and prevent disease. Protecting your precious DNA is critical to healthy longevity. Scientific research provides evidence of the therapeutic effects of essential oils –,

Not all essential oils are equal. Make sure you understand the differences. You will find many cheap essential oils – know what you are getting and comparing. If the price is too good to be true – buyer beware – the product is probably adulterated. Ask your supplier for proof of third party certification.  Internal certification is not the same as third party certification. Read about the many ways in which essential oils can be adulterated at

HEALTH FORENSICS: For A Symptom Free You


“Search for the cure within the cause, the body itself is the best healer”

Plato C427 -C347 BC

Plato believed knowing the cause of ill health was necessary to direct the body towards healing. Finding the cause of your symptoms and conditions can be a lot like looking for a needle in a hay stack. How do you investigate your well-being challenges? How do you determine what factors are responsible for your symptoms or condition? To be able to complete the puzzle of your health it is important to collect as much information as you can and piece those bits of information together. Developing a timeline of your life can help you to accomplish the task. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual factors should all be included in your timeline. Individual details or events may or may not be a significant health concern on their own. In combination with other factors or cumulatively, they may be relevant.

I have many clients who come to me after going through traditional medical assessment for unexplained symptoms. Often times medical tests do not reveal the cause of symptoms. When they come to me I use neuromuscular biofeedback in a system I have developed called BodyFeedback™ Interview &Therapy – Health Forensics. It can help you to get to the root cause of your symptoms so that you can get on with your life. Spending endless hours in emergency departments does not always provide the desired results. It is an important first step in your quest for symptom investigation,

Dr. You: Delegating Responsibility For Your Healthcare

Dr you

Who is responsible for your health and well-being?

Health is in part dependent on the quality of the healthcare you choose to receive from the healthcare providers you choose to consult. Your health and well-being are ultimately your responsibility. Your well-being depends on you to make healthy choices and take the steps required to assess and preserve your health, promoting your overall well-being. It requires you to regularly monitor the status of your body and be in tune to its needs by listening to the subtle messages it gives you. Your well-being is your choice and your responsibility! The power to be well is yours.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine was quoted to say: “Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well”. There was a time when the focus for health recovery was to rely on the ‘doctor within’, as the first response. In modern times, sometimes the first response is the medicine cabinet, doctor’s office or emergency room. There are definitely times when these are necessary choices. Modern medicine has saved many lives. Many people have delegated 100% responsibility for their healthcare to their doctors, pharmacists and other medical providers. 

How much of the authority and responsibility for your healthcare have you handed over? You mind and body were created fully equipped, and capable of providing you with many natural cures – provided by your body’s amazing abilities and internal pharmacy

Calling Dr. You

You have the authority to delegate the responsibility for your healthcare to your ‘doctor within’ and other healthcare practitioners and therapies, as required. You possess the power to choose to implement a well-being plan and follow it through. You have the power to choose to accept a diagnosis or prognosis as a done deal or not. You have the power to choose to believe your body can heal. Other than the factors beyond your control, you have the power to control the factors that will potentially affect your well-being.

As a part of the ongoing healing process, the brain is constantly assessing the status of your body and communicating the need for nutrients, detoxification, repair and replacement of cells to the relevant organs, systems and body parts. These ongoing processes and communication directing them must be protected. Many factors are capable of promoting detoxification and healing, and many factors have the potential to interfere with the body’s natural communications and pre-programmed abilities. The success of your life-long journey of well-being will depend on those processes continuing uncompromised. To maintain your well-being will require you to continually stack your well-being odds by staying informed and making required changes.  


Learn how to connect with your ‘doctor within’ to optimize your body’s amazing abilities and internal pharmacy by reading THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATIONTo book a consultation see the contact information.

YOUR BIOLOGICAL GPS: Is It Steering You In The Right Direction?

Directions to symptom free living 2_1-1


I have moved numerous times in my life and know well how confusing it can be to navigate a new town or city. It takes time to remap your brain so that you feel comfortable in your new location. Now that I have a GPS I find much more comfortable travelling – relying 100% on the directions and the voice from the box. 

Your body has a biological GPS system that directs the many essential functions that take place without your awareness. Like your automobile GPS – it can take you astray at times due to a number of factors. Trauma, stress, medications, alcohol, viruses and toxins are just a few interfering elements capable of sending your biological GPS into malfunction, in many cases without your awareness until you start experiencing symptoms. 

Your automobile GPS requires ongoing updating to stay current, providing you with accurate directions.  Your biological GPS may require updating at times due to interference so that you can maintain symptom free living. 

THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION provides you with useful information, self-help tools and strategies to update your biological GPS – keeping your directed towards symptom free living. Consider BodyFeedback™ Interview &Therapy to reset your biological GPS – getting you back to symptom free living and your life. Health by Design Well-being Coaching can help you update your biolgocal GPS – keeping you on track to symptom free living. 


Wishing you symptom free living!

SYMPTOM FREE LIVING: Restore Your Body’s Default Settings

 Restore default settings brain

Do you suffer from chronic or unexplained symptoms? Was there a time when you did not suffer those symptoms?

Many chronic and unexplained symptoms like allergies, sensitivities and inflammation can be the result of alterations in your body’s normal default settings and way of responding. Each body response, for example the inflammatory response, is initiated based on your body’s default settings of  ‘when, how, how much and for how long’. For most people that inflammatory response is tempered by a corresponding anti-inflammatory response, which is also initiated based on your body’s default settings of ‘when, how, how much and for how long’.

The dictionary meaning of default is  ‘a selection automatically used by a computer program in the absence of a choice made by the user’. You may at times have seen a message pop up on your computer screen like the one below.

‘Restore the system software to its default settings. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform this operation.’

There are a number of factors that can interfere with and alter the default response settings and responses in your body. Stress hormones from chronic or extreme stress, trauma, toxic chemicals, body pollution and imbalance are just a few conditions capable of altering default settings and responses.  When the body’s original correct default settings are altered, the body will respond differently. After awhile your body will assume the altered settings are the normal defaults.

My ‘symptom story‘ is the perfect example of how the body’s defaults can be altered.  My past diagnoses of multiple food allergies, multiple chemical sensitivities and depression are no longer valid.   The good news is, I was able to reset my body’s default response settings using a variety of natural strategies. I am now 100% food allergy free, 100% chemical sensitivity free and 100% depression free. You can read about these in my books. You too can become 100% symptom free. Here is a short list of strategies to get you started.


  • There are conventional and non conventional strategies that can reset the body’s defaults.
  • Do not accept or own a diagnosis or condition or your symptoms as forever or ‘written in stone’ – expect your body to fix whatever needs fixing or resetting to get rid of your symptoms. Your brain will only take you as far as your expectations.
  • You may need to implement a series of paradigm shifts to achieve your well-being goals.
  • Ensure that all potential ‘default interfering and damaging’ conditions are resolved.
  • Believe in your body’s amazing ability to resolve your symptoms and conditions and their cause.
  • Believe that ‘more is possible’. Olympic athletes achieve more because they believe more is possible. 
  • Learn how to use customized body scan visualizations, tapping and reprogramming to reset your body’s default settings.  You can read more about how to use these in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION.
  • Have a BodyFeedback™ Interview &Therapy Session to help reset your body’s defaults – eliminating your symptoms.
  • Use essential oils to rebalance your body’s mind and body. Essential oils always work toward restoring and maintaining balance and homeostasis, first in the plants who create them, and then in the humans who apply them. A diffuser would be an excellent add on at home, school and the office to dissipate stress, improve productivity, cleanse your receptor sites and restore and maintain cellular homeostasis. To learn more about the restorative powers of essential oils contact me. “Dr. David Stewart, Ph.D., D.N.M. Integrated Aromatic Science Practitioner, indicates that there are approximately 500,000 plant species on planet earth, but only 18,000 (3.6%) have the means to produce essential oils. He describes the function of these fragrant essential oils in his book, The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: God’s Love Manifest in Molecules. Essential oils, regulate bodily functions, creating homeostasis in plants and in humans. They are called “the life blood of a plant”. In the human body essential oils carry oxygen into cells and remove waste. They are capable of cleansing cellular receptor sites of pharmaceutical drugs, petrochemicals and other environmental pollutants. This is why diffusing essentials oils regularly is such a positive health promoting therapy.

SYMPTOM RELIEF: How To Get To 100% Symptom Free Naturally

Yes, it is possible to get to 100% symptom free status. Spontaneous remissions are evidence of that. The same is possible for you, if you can learn from those who have achieved success and implemented the required changes.  My journey through multiple symptoms and diagnoses to the other side where I am symptom free, has provided me with many insights. These insights come from my research, and the trial and error approaches that I tried along my journey to ‘symptom free’ status. This does not mean that I will never experience symptoms again in my life; or that I am someone else’s version of ‘normal’ in terms of health.
sick in bed
For most people, gone are the days when ‘feeling under the weather’ meant (allowed) a day in bed. Unwanted symptoms are a part of many people’s lives. Life and work must go on, regardless of your symptoms.  Symptoms are not always a sign of something ‘gone wrong’. A symptom can be subjective evidence of disease or your body’s way of warning you of a physical disturbance, something that needs your attention. The disturbance can be due to a number of things; trauma, inflammation, detoxification, healing, repair, abnormal growths or malfunction, etc. Inflammation is a natural body response required for detoxification, healing and repair. Chronic inflammation can indicates= that the normal healthy shut down response is not happening, or that something more serious is happening that requires further attention. Chronic inflammation may also be due to diet.
Unraveling your collection of symptoms can be like looking for a needle in the haystack
Some people are very symptom aware and may mistakenly be called a ‘hypochondriac’.  Differences in symptom awareness can be due to damage or malfunction within the body, a unique characteristic, enhanced awareness or enhanced intuitive ability.  At times it may be misguided, as it often is in people who are offended by all scents, even natural ones, after past exposure to toxic synthetic chemicals or scents. Other people may be very symptom unaware to the point they have experienced no symptoms when they receive a major diagnosis.
By the time you experience a symptoms there is a three-step process that should be taking place:
  1. Perception – your operating system (body/mind), if working properly, has become aware of something different through your senses 
  2. Evaluation/interpretation – your operating system (body/mind), if working properly, has made a judgment about the significance of the perceived (at times possibly invalid) awareness
  3. Response –  your operating system (body/mind), if working properly, has directed your body/mind’s defense systems to take care of the real or perceived situation/threat. 

The three-step process listed above is important for a strong defensive and immune response but is not always happening the way it should; due to interference, malfunction or damage within the body. This disruption can happen as a result of trauma, damage, inflammation, stress, environmental toxins, medications, synthetic chemicals in personal and laundry care products, electromagnetic fields and disruptive changes in your life. Many of these become a part of your body pollution. There are times when the body’s natural perceiving, interpreting and responding are not working properly resulting in malfunction within the body and systems – resulting in symptoms.

Body Pollution page 2

Each individual or group of symptoms could be indicative of an array of situations or conditions.  It is important to investigate them but not to jump to conclusions and ‘take on’ a diagnosis or condition as the result of your research, a challenge at times with all of the information available on the internet.

Acute and chronic symptoms can have a traumatic impact on physical comfort and mental and emotional well-being. Symptomatic relief, required at times to enable you to function, should always be accompanied by an investigation into the cause of the symptoms. Once your regular healthcare provider has ruled out any potential serious underlying causes, you have several options.

 Symptom Relief Option A

Symptom Relief Option B

Although your regular healthcare provider is the person you should initially consult, you should continually investigate your options for symptom relief, both conventional and non-conventional. Staying informed is the best way to do this. An abundance of reliable resources are available with information on natural therapies that can be safely integrated with other therapies, including conventional medicine. Natural therapies are often more ‘liver friendly’ – important to liver health and safer for the environment. It is important to research the possible interactions of using herbal and alternative therapies with medications before proceeding. Some therapies, either internal or external, could be contraindicated due to health conditions, age, medications, treatments or other factors. Since each person is unique, the method(s) that provide symptom relief for every person will also be unique. Focusing your attention and money on symptom relief like anti-inflammatory drugs/supplements for chronic inflammation, or permanent allergy elimination treatments for allergies; ‘tip of the iceberg’ symptoms, may not provide long-term holding power without first addressing the underlying ‘base of the iceberg’ issues.

Symptoms Iceberg Analogy

INVESTIGATE YOUR SYMPTOMS: What to ask your doctor

The following are two important questions you should ask your healthcare provider when investigating your symptoms.

  • What is my body doing that it should not be doing?
  • What should my body be doing that it is not doing?

Whatever your symptoms are, the information your doctor gives you, including test results, is useful information to help you on your well-being journey. Get as much detailed information as possible. You can use this information with biofeedback, visualization, affirmations, touch and prayer to help focus your brain’s attention, immune system response and healing.  You can find more information on this in the section Rejuvenate, Self-Help Therapies and Tools, THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION, starting on page 135.


Your quest for symptom elimination will require you to follow the steps above, as well as make changes in your thinking, expecting and believing.

What you think,expect and believe become a part of the information or criteria (software) that your body/mind (operating system) uses to evaluate what it has perceived in your body and how it will respond. Just as in the placebo effect, the mind has the power to heal the body when people believe that a drug or procedure will provide them with a cure; your thoughts, expectations, beliefs and what you accept as fact (diagnosis/prognosis) determine whether or not you will achieve symptom free status. What you believe, accept and expect on the conscious level must be in sync with what you believe, accept and expect on the subconscious level. You may be unaware that there is a difference.

There are many examples of how changing what people would normally believe, think and expect allows their body to not be negatively affected:

  • For thousands of years people from various cultures and religions have walked on fire (glowing coals) without harm
  • The Bakhtiari tribe of nomads  (50,0000 people) from Persia,  travel  through a 15,000 foot mountain pass twice a year, barefoot over ice and snow with their herds of sheep, cows and goats
  • Members of a religious group, The Free Penticostal Holiness Church, from Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina, handle poisonous rattlesnakes and Copperheads and get bitten without any symptoms of toxic poisoning
  • Members from this same group drink toxic doses of strychnine without toxic poisoning
  • Spontaneous remissions


  • Changing ‘what you believe, think and expect’ can provide you with protection from harm and elimination of symptoms
  • The mind has great power over healing and repair
  • You can become symptom free by implementing paradigm shifts
  • You can become symptom free by reprogramming what you believe is possible about becoming symptom free. After all, your body was created by God with many amazing abilities. Every moment of every day, without any action on your part hundreds of processes are taking place and abilities are available to you, even while you are asleep. The healthy human organism, with its complex high-tech operating system, is continually self detecting, self diagnosing, self renewing, self healing, self repairing, self cleaning and self protecting. The body has an internal pharmacy, which when functioning properly produces natural analgesic, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, anti-stress, sleep-inducing, immune system strengthening and gastrointestinal normalizing chemicals.[1]
  • You can become symptom free by adding fresh or dried herbs and essential oil therapy, healthier options for the environment.
  • A diagnosis is based on a collection of symptoms and/or test results commonly found together. When a person receives a diagnosis, which usually comes with a projected prognosis, they often believe their outcome is written in stone as stated in the prognosis. It is important that you believe your outcome is in part determined by what you believe it will be!  A hundred unique individuals presenting with the same or similar symptoms and test results could be given the same diagnosis and prognosis. Each person’s outcome can be different. Your diagnosis and prognosis can provide you with useful information to customize your recovery protocol and your visualizations.
  • Mind body healing strategies and tools can help you to reprogram ‘what you believe, think, accept and expect’ – helping your body to achieve ‘symptom free’ status
  • Stretching ‘what you believe is possible’ is an attainable reality – Olympic athlete’s have done so for decades, surpassing the previous record holder’s record.
  • Sometimes the body’s responses have become ‘skewed’ (abnormal, excessive, inadequate, not right) due to trauma or associations and needs to be reprogrammed to stop mounting these ‘not right’ responses. This is the case in allergies and chemical sensitivity responses. There are many conventional and non-conventional strategies available to help you break the associations and cycle of faulty responding.

Do you possess limiting beliefs and thinking that interfere with your well-being or achieving your life goals? A diagnosis, prognosis or your own thinking about them can become a limiting belief to achieving well-being or your life goals; if you believe the information they provide is 100% true or written in stone.

I have helped many of my clients reach ‘symptom free’ status by coaching them on their journey using mind body healing and reprogramming; and other natural self-help strategies and tools. You can find my philosophy and how to implement these strategies in my self-help guide book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION. An Olympic athlete requires a qualified coach to achieve his/her goals – you may require coaching to help you achieve your symptom free goals. Let me be your guide. Email and telephone coaching is available.
