Essential oil solutions

As essential oils have gained popularity in the last couple of years, you have probably heard of them and seen them around. We now have more and more access to these tools, but not necessarily more understanding on how to use them.

 

There is a TON of information out there explaining how essential oils are extracted and how something that was meant to protect a plant can protect and heal our bodies. If you have questions or want to go more in depth, I would love to chat about that! Today we are just going to focus on a few of the most versatile oils and how you can use them in your daily routines.

 

Before we get into specifics, I want to make clear that when it comes to essential oils, quality matters! There are companies out there that take the time use high quality plants and extract the oils in a way where their powerful benefits are not lost. I use DoTerra oils because of their high standards on creating products that are safe and effective. This is not the only company out there, but it is the one I trust.

 

I got interested in oils because I wanted another tool to empower patients to improve their health when they step out of my office. There are so many solutions to everyday problems that live in those bottles. Let’s take a look at a few of them:

 

First off, Lemon

Lemon oil is used to clean and purify the air and surfaces. It aids in digestion when taken internally and can also support healthy respiratory function.

Tips for use:

·         Add a drop or two to your water to aid in digestion of meals

·         Mix 2 drops in a spray bottle with 10 oz. of water to clean tables, countertops and other surfaces

·         Diffuse to uplift your mood

 

Next, Lavender

The queen of oils! Lavender has a long history of soothing skin irritations, relaxing mood, and promoting restful sleep

Tips for use:

·         Add a few drops to your pillows, bedding or bottom of feet to aid in sleep

·         Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations

·         Add a drop or two to your water to reduce anxious feelings

 

Lastly, Peppermint

Peppermint is another familiar oil with many uses.

Tips for uses:

·         Take a drop or two internally to help alleviate an upset stomach

·         Add a drop to your water to promote healthy respiratory function

·         Rub a drop in your hands and inhale for a refreshing pick me up

 

If you have any interest in learning more about how essential oils can be a safe and effective replacement to harsher chemicals in your life, let’s chat!

VITAMIN D: WHY IT IS IMPORTANT AND WHERE TO GET IT

You most likely have had someone in your life recommend Vitamin D. But what is so great about that vitamin? 

 

Well, virtually every cell in the human body has a Vitamin D receptor. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the intestine to protect against osteoporosis. It also regulates your immune function. Vitamin D promotes cell growth and supports your mood. 

 

If that is not enough reason to want to have sufficient Vitamin D levels, some of the risks of having insufficient levels of Vitamin D include increased risk of heart attack, cancer, diabetes, asthma and other autoimmune diseases. Now this list is not meant to scare you, it is meant to empower you to get your Vitamin D levels checked to make sure you are not at risk. Your primary care physician can check this for you.

 

Knowing how important this vitamin is, where do we get it?

 

The best source of Vitamin D is always SUNLIGHT! This is the form that your body absorbs the best and there are numerous additional benefits to getting natural sunlight. Living in the Midwest, you know that natural sunlight can be scarce. Other sources including fatty fish, (like tuna, salmon, etc.) egg yolks and beef liver which contain high amounts of Vitamin D can help.  If eating more of those foods is not enough to get you to a healthy level, you can use a Vitamin D supplement. A high-quality, bio-available (meaning your body can absorb it) Vitamin D supplement can help your reach sufficient Vitamin D levels when your diet/sunlight exposure are lacking. 

 

Ask about Vitamin D at your next appointment !
