Environmental Toxins Linked to Rise in Autism

Environmental Toxins

Thirty years ago, autism was a condition that was considered rare and most people did not know anyone who was dealing with this challenge. Today, statistics indicate as many as one if 50 children may have autism. Dr. Mercola addressed this topic in a recent article (click here to read the entire article). He made several interesting points:

  • Mounting research indicates that brain disorders are the result of excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources, including the mother, while in utero
  • Fluoride alone, which is still being added to many public water supplies around the US, can contribute to a seven-point drop in a child’s IQ score, on average
  • When the US National Toxicology Program was enacted in 1978, some 62,000 chemicals that were already in use were simply grandfathered in, even though they’d never been tested for toxicity

For several years now, I have focused on eliminating toxins and chemicals from my life. My efforts have really paid off in a big way. My doctor tells me that my health just continues to improve and I can affirm this is true by how much better I feel. This is a journey that is on-going and Young Living Essential Oils has been a huge part of my journey. Once you start on a personal path to wellness, you begin to see more and more benefits of a toxin-free life.

If you are located in northern Minnesota, I will be teaching a class Thursday evening, May 1 in Pengilly, Minnesota that will focus on ADD/ADHD and Autism. Contact me for details and to register for this free class.

I encourage you to look closely at the research about how toxins relate to autism, and what things might be contributing to the challenges presented by it. I affirm you in your journey to lovingly support and nurture your loved one. I also encourage you to take a close look at the awesome products available from Young Living Essential Oils… Products that are pure, toxin-free and will support you in this journey.

Let’s start a conversation about ways to support a healthy lifestyle that lowers exposure to toxins in our environment and about ways to reduce risks for autism in our families and communities.

Health at what price?

Recently my colleague Dr. LeAnne Deardeuff mentioned how much she loves Frankincense and what it has done to improve her life and health. She mentioned how frankincense helped her get rid of headaches. She also said, “I vita-flexed it on my pituitary points on my feet and head. I rubbed it in the roof of my mouth.  I began to learn that it focused my fuzzy brain and made me more alert and able to work better. Energy was soon restored. I felt that I might just have some “brilliancy” in that head of mine. Health was being restored.”

She even says she mixed a few drops in fresh raw cream and drank it — the emulsified fat quickly delivered the precious essential oil to every cell of her body. What a great idea!

For me, when I was having great difficulty with asthma and chronic bronchitis, inhaling Frankincense immediately eased the spasms in my lungs. In fact, the first time I did that, my lungs sent a message to my brain that said, “THANK YOU!”

Authentic, pure, therapeutic grade Frankincense doesn’t come cheap. It is easy to feel like it is too expensive to use.  But let me toss out another thought from Dr. LeAnne: “Now with the type of healing I am doing with Frankincense it isn’t expensive to me any more. It is vital. My health is worth so much more then letting that precious oil sit on the shelf being seen but not touched. It is meant to be used.”

I couldn’t say it better. What is your health worth to you?

Hand Sanitizers

Have you ever read or heard about how dangerous most hand purifiers are? People use them all the time and pretend they are safe, even though they know they dry out their hands and have heard about how children have been poisoned from ingesting them.

Stop and think about it: If it is going to poison you if you drink it, what do you think it is doing to your body when it is absorbed through your skin?

Spring Cleaning without toxins

Spring Cleaning

Recently Dr. Mercola called attention to the dangers of common household cleaners. In his article, Mercola pointed out:

  • The typical American home contains about three to 10 gallons of toxic materials in the form of household cleaning products. Even “green” alternatives can contain harmful ingredients
  • Ingredients in common household cleaners and detergents that can create a toxic indoor environment include glycol ethers, phosphates, volatile organic compounds, phthalates, and more

I am very thankful for Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living Essential Oils. Not only does it have the Green Rating from the Environmental Working Group, but I have discovered it is so safe that I can even wash my fresh fruits and veggies in it. Yet it is powerful enough to get out tough stains and clean and disinfect floors, bathrooms, laundry and more. Frankly, I use it for cleaning most everything!

Exquisite perfumes

Image

Have you ever walked past those stores that sell scented products and perfumes and sneezed afterward? Or worse yet, got a headache or had trouble breathing because of an asthma attack?

One time a friend was in one of those stores and was admiring a certain product. The clerk came over to help her and was having a conversation with her. When she learned my friend was with Young Living Essential Oils, she said, “You don’t want any of these products. You won’t be happy with them.” Wow, that surely said a lot, don’t you think?

I love wearing different Young Living blends as perfume. They are natural, safe and life giving! Even my friends who are extremely sensitive to scents don’t have a problem with my “perfumes” because they do not contain any toxins or artificial chemicals.

Here are some favorites of my friends and me to use as perfumes:

 

Julie says, Jasmine and Clove together is sweet and spicy all at the same time just like many of us women! 🙂 It is sooooooo intoxicating. After putting one drop of each on in your palm and lightly and gently rub the two together and then put it on. it will last for a good 4-5 hours. and you will get LOTS of compliments!!!! Enjoy, its so so yummy and the men love it on us!!

 

 

 

Nancy enjoys wearing Stress Away and Humility as perfumes.

Peggy says Joy oil is one of her favorites. She says, “Not only does it make me feel good but also the people in your space. My niece told me that she was in line at Costco and the gal behind her said to her friend “I can’t figure out why I keep smiling!” Of course it was the oil. It also keeps the grand kids [and husbands] from being grumpy. 

Abundance seems to attract positive reactions from people and draw them to you.

Sensation is great for creating a romantic atmosphere.

   

Some people like White Angelica because it protects you from the negative energy around you. Harmony, and Valor are also wonderful scents to wear as perfumes.

My suggestion is to have fun with them!  Find your own favorites and let me know that you like the best!
