A common sense approach to Supplements

Many people choose to use supplements to fill in gaps in their nutrition. But how do you know that those supplements are helping you? How much should you take, when should you take them and how do you know if you are getting what your body desires to maintain health? Most of all, how do you balance the cost with the benefits of taking supplements?

I’ve known people who, in my option, take loads of supplements, perhaps way more than might be necessary if they would simply work to clean up their diet and lifestyle. Then, I know others who don’t believe in taking supplements at all. Maybe they are very healthy and don’t feel a need to add supplements to their diet. But I believe most people fall someplace between those two extremes.

Permit me to digress a bit. I grew up believing in natural health, yet for many reasons, the cards I was dealt in life, left me with many significant health challenges. As an adult, I found myself going to the doctor more and more. One challenge would pile on top of another and with each new prescription, I was developing more and more sensitivities. This set me on a path to research and find ways to eat and live healthier.

It was a long process that took many years, and I continue to learn more all the time. For a while I found myself spending more money on supplements to give support to my ailing body. But I never gave up hope. I always believed that if I consistently worked on turning my life around, one day I would not need as many supplements.

Gradually, I learned to read how I was feeling. I worked with my doctor to achieve my wellness goals. And today, I am happy that I feel better than I did when I started this journey many years ago! And the best part is that I have found my sweet spot for what supplements my body seems to like.

This gives me hope, not only for me but for you! It IS possible to live healthy. This is what inspired me to focus on supplements this month. Below you will find the link to a newsletter that I believe will give you some inspiration as you consider what supplements are best for you.

Over the years, I have always tried to use the best supplements I could find. My search eventually led me to Young Living’s supplements. I swapped out a few of my favorites and soon discovered the YL supplements just seemed to work better. Gradually I was able to decrease the amounts and type of supplements I was taking while continuing to improve in how I felt. And the best part was that my blood work supported what I thought was happening. More and more of my test results were improving with each new round of tests. I was needing fewer and fewer visits to my doctor and to the emergency room. It’s true that I still have a way to go, but I am happy with my progress, and so is my doctor.

So what makes YL supplements better? Well I believe it’s the science behind each synergistically formulated product. There are products that are great for overall support as well as ones for targeted nutritional support of various body systems. So as I have learned to pay closer attention to how I feel, I have learned to be more sensitive to when I may want to give some extra loving to any given body system or organ.

Health is a lifestyle

Wouldn’t you agree that most people want to be healthy?

Do you also think that most people aren’t as healthy as they would like to be?

Would you like to be healthier than you are today?

Over the past 40 or more years, I have worked very hard to climb out of what was a very UNHEALHY lifestyle that had me in a deep hole that I did not want to be in. As I studied and applied what I learned, it was very hard to overcome longstanding bad habits that were negatively impacting my wellness. It has been a long journey and I still have a long way to go. But I am so much better today than I was 20 years ago.

One of my passions is to help others by sharing what I have learned in order to make their wellness journey more successful. One thing I learned is that health is a lifestyle. You can’t just slap an oil on your skin or take some supplement and everything is suddenly all better! It just doesn’t work that way. That’s why I dedicate so much energy into to educating about wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

You have to start someplace and I love helping people (you) find your starting point or to help you discover a few missing pieces to aid you in a journey you already are on.  If you would like to visit with me about your healthy lifestyle, whether you want some ideas for improving your journey, or how to change directions to start that journey, I’d love to help. Fill out a request to contact me through my Share Scents website and we will talk!

Macho Man from the Inside-Out

A few years ago, my husband had a wake-up call with his health. I had already implemented a number of changes to support my wellness journey, but now he got more serious about it too.

We significantly reduced the amount of meat and processed foods in our diet. We added more fresh organic veggies and fruits. He got serious about getting on the exercise bike daily. And he started taking supplements to support his cardiovascular health and also his overall health.

Take a look at these powerful supplements from Young Living:
  • OmegaGize³ – Combines the power of three core daily supplements-omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D-3, and CoQ10 to synergistically support normal brain, heart, eye, and joint health.
  • NingXia Red – A powerful, whole-body supplement packed with superfoods to support overall wellness.
  • PowerGize – Specially formulated to help individuals of all ages boost stamina and performance. Helps sustain energy levels, strength, mental and physical vibrancy, and vitality when used in addition to physical activity.
  • Agilease – Especially beneficial for athletes, as well as middle-aged and elderly people who may experience a natural, acute inflammation response in their joints after exercise. Contains powerful ingredients and essential oils that are known for their joint health benefits.
  • Master Formula – Prepackaged sachets are convenient to take your vitamins on the go. A full spectrum, multi-nutrient complex to support general health and well-being
  • Prostate Health — Specially formulated for men to promote healthy male glandular system and prostate function.

Young Living supplements are infused with pure therapeutic grade essential oils to add power to their scientifically researched formulas. They have made a significant impact on my wellness journey and I highly recommend them for you and/or the men in your life.

Cold feet

Do you get cold feet? No, not the kind we think of in relationship to getting married or committing to do something outside our comfort zone. I mean feet that are cold all the time or maybe at night when it is time to sleep. As winter approaches, lots of people resort to wearing bed socks to keep warm at night. But I have another idea.

If your feet are cold because you need to improve circulation, you might want to give this DIY recipe a try.

Cold feet

In a 15 ml bottle, add the following essential oils:

  • 2 drops cypress
  • 2 drops neroli
  • 2 drops lemon
  • 2 drops geranium

Then fill the bottle the rest of the way with V-6 Mixing Oil, or another organic carrier oil such as Olive, Almond or Grapeseed oil.

For added warmth, you could also add a drop of black pepper essential oil.

Massage your feet (or hands if they are cold) and feel the warmth! You can also gently massage up the lower leg to cover areas that supply blood to the feet.

Clean arteries

 NingXia Heart Healthy

NingXia Red is one of my all-time favorite products from Young Living Essential Oils. NingXia Red offers support to the entire body, and is a fabulous antioxidant whole food beverage supplement. It tastes amazing and is so easy. Just pour a shot glass or open a single packet and drink! No mixing required. It also can be a tasty addition to other juices or to a smoothie if desired.

Recently, I ran across some research about how beneficial pomegranate is to the heart and arteries. Check these benefits by clicking the individual links:

These are just a few of the numerous benefits that have been studied on pomegranate juice. I don’t think about the science when I drink Red, but I do know it is healthy for my me!

Just think of the added benefits of all the other amazingly powerful ingredients found in my favorite antioxidant drink! There are no junk juices in Red. It is packed full of powerful nutrition. Just look at these ingredients:

  • Ningxia Wolfberry Puree
  • Blueberry Juice Concentrate
  • Plum Juice Concentrate
  • Cherry Juice Concentrate
  • Aronia Juice Concentrate
  • Pomegranate Juice Concentrate
  • Grape seed extract
  • Orange Essential Oil
  • Yuzu Essential Oil
  • Lemon Essential Oil
  • Tangerine Essential Oil
