Essential oils for Vibrant Families
Last month, for the first time in years I read my local newspaper "Caboolture News" and as I read a certain article I could feel my heart skip a beat for this beautiful young couple with a gorgeous little girl who had consistent tonsillitis.... occurring every three weeks. My heart goes out to families who experience continuous health concerns with no real answers or results...
My thoughts and eagerness to help this couple in some way were persistent and strong... as the whirlwind of ideas and 'what ifs' spiralled around in my mind. Hmmm I wonder what else they have tried..... and I wonder if they have heard of therapeutic grade YL essential oils.
So this blog about re occurring dis-ease and tonsillitis is for you.... the couple on the front cover from Narangba waiting for surgery or a better solution for their precious creation.
I am a firm believer that if conventional medicine isn't working, if you are experiencing the same outcome over and over again then why not try something else? A different solution perhaps? One that has no side effects or full effects on the rest of our body.
Being a mother of two daughters myself I feel for families like these parents in the paper who have to give their little one antibiotics every three weeks.... with the same results..... a continuous re occurrence.
It is so super important to feed, nourish and protect our precious immune system... especially with the cooler weather when we often eat for comfort and warmth.
Along with nutrition, active living and being around positive influences it's great that we now have extra earth tools to use first hand at home as a preventative and protector for our mind, body and spirit.
The plant kingdom continues to be the subject of an enormous amount of research and discovery.... well it is really a rediscovery. Everyday thousands of people are feeling self empowered and experience amazing results with mother natures gifts to us.
Essential oils have been around for donkeys years right... The Ancient Egyptians were masters when using essential oils and other aromatic compounds. Many hieroglyphics on the walls of Egyptian temples depict the blending of oils and describe hundreds of oil recipes.
Young Living essential oils are extraordinary - they are the real deal and they are the world's purest oils. Quality is the most important thing especially when you are using oils on your family, their skin, internal organs, in their food, for first aid and health care. I have been living the YL lifestyle for over 6 years now and I am thrilled to say that I haven't been to a doctor since I gave birth to my second daughter almost 5 years ago.... I truly believe in the power of prevention. Which includes illiminating unnecessary chemicals in homes, body products and following a whole food, active and kind lifestyle... The YL Lifestyle works perfectly.
So we have the best of the best oils..... now its time to read, educate, empower ourselves and others...
One of the best resources out there for essential oil amazingness is called the Essential Oil Desk Reference.
This is the 'bible' of essential oils and if you are serious about natural health, changing and transforming your life, your families and friends then get your hot little hands on a copy... available at www.aromabooks.com or www.let-support.com.au it comes in the full version at $98, mini version $37.95.
So what do we know about tonsillitis?
The tonsils are infection-fighting lymphatic tissues (immune cells) that surround the throat. When these become infected with streptococcal bacteria they become inflamed, causing a condition known as tonsillitis.
It became popular in the 1960's and 1970's to have the tonsils removed when they became infected. However, tonsillectomies have become much less frequent as researchers have discovered the important role that tonsils play in preventing and fighting infectious diseases and optimising immune response.
The pharyngeal tonsils located at the back of the throat (known as the adenoids) can also come infected - a condition known as adenines.
