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.

Spice up your fall recipes!

Lately I have been seeing a lot of great recipes for traditional fall foods. You know… the ones we make for Thanksgiving or on into December and January. It made me think about how much I love Thieves Vitality! A couple of weeks ago I got my hands on some fresh raw apple cider. It was delicious, but SO MUCH BETTER once I warmed it up in a kettle and added a drop of Thieves Vitality! Oh my – YUM! I loved the thought that I was supporting my immune system while warming my tummy (and hands while holding the mug)!

Have you ever explored the possibilities of using your essential oils to boost flavor in your cooking and baking? It is so easy and inexpensive too.  Yes, there are essential oils that are approved by the FDA as “Generally Regarded As Safe for internal consumption (GRAS). Most brands are not approved for internal use, but Young Living has a line called Vitality, that are specifically labeled and safe for internal use!

I remember the time I first discovered this concept. I was making a recipe that called for fresh-squeezed organic lime juice. To have that would have required me to drive 45 minutes to the nearest store where I could purchase an organic lime. Not happening! Then I remembered I had some Lime Vitality essential oil. SCORE! So convenient and just perfect.

I’ve used this trick when I need fresh nutmeg, ginger, clove. Well, you get the idea!

I do have to mention that the essential oils are very potent so you must go very easy on this. Some might require that you only dip a toothpick to get just the right amount. Others you might need a drop or maybe 4-6 drops. It just depends. So the rule is “less is more.” You can always add more, but you can’t take it out after it’s in! And you surely don’t want to make six more batches just to tone down the flavor if you added too many drops! I have heard for example, that one drop of peppermint yields the same effect as 28 cups of peppermint tea. Yowza! Now that’s potent!

I have taught classes on the topic of cooking with oils and if that interests you, please send me an inquiry. Perhaps we can schedule a video conference for you and a few of your friends who love to cook!

Supporting the Liver

The diets most people follow are loaded with processed foods, fats, sugars and “foods” that really should not be honored to bear the name of “FOOD”! Many people poison their bodies on a daily basis with what they put in their mouths. We can also heal our bodies by eating healthy foods that will nourish and support our bodies. The choice is up to us.

Often people go along year after year totally unaware of what is happening to their bodies. That is until it is too late. Or nearly too late. Suddenly they get sick. Maybe they end up at Urgent Care and discover their liver or gallbladder is full of stones or worse yet, diseased. Oh well, let’s just take it out. You can live without a gallbladder, after all. Well, yes, this is true. But if it is not that important, then why did God put it in our bodies in the first place?

Personally, I believe a better approach is to eat healthy and support all the organs of your body before you have a problem. And if you do have a problem, I affirm anyone who chooses to do everything within their power to find the most natural way to resolve it.

Juva Cleanse is an extremely powerful blend. It was developed to help support the liver and gallbladder. Young Living actually has quite a few products that support these organs. Here are some of them.

  

 

If you have already had your gallbladder removed, there is still hope. You can change your diet and support your liver and body. I also affirm you in that. Find someone who can help you learn how to turn your life around and begin to do good things for your liver! I would be happy to encourage you in that process and share the things that have been helpful to many folks in your situation. Start today to give your body the support it needs to  give you the very best future possible!
