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.

Young Living: So much more than essential oils

It seems like most people are drawn to Young Living Essential Oils company because of essential oils. They hear about essential oils, someone tells them about the number-one company, they might do some research and even buy some of those little bottles.

Then what? Maybe they fall in love or maybe the bottles get shoved in a closet or drawer and forgotten. I just spent the past several weeks writing about essential oils. Yes, they are amazing. Yes, they have done amazing things for me and a lot of my friends and family.

But did you know that Young Living has about 600 products, and the majority of those products are NOT essential oils? It’s true. Truth be known, it’s those “other” products that have changed my life for the good. This month let’s talk about some of those products.

Not long after I purchased my first bottles of essential oils, a new product was introduced. At that time it was called Berry Young Juice. Today it is called NingXia Red. I decided to give it a try. I loved the flavor and started to drink it daily for several months.

At the beginning, I thought I could feel a difference in my body. I just felt “better” – more energy. Then after a few months, I thought maybe it was all in my head so I stopped ordering it. Within a few days, I was dragging butt. I didn’t feel as good as I had been feeling. Needless to say, I started drinking it again and immediately could feel a positive shift in my body and energy.

A few years passed. I started to discover other products that Young Living sold. I compared some to similar products I had in my home, and the Young Living products just seemed to be better. I took some of the supplement bottles to show my doctor. He gave his nod of approval and reinforced my thoughts that these were good products. So slowly, as I ran out of various supplements, I would order my replacements from Young Living. I discovered they were much more potent and I could feel a significant difference. I later learned there was a lot of science and research behind these powerful Young Living supplements. They really did work better for me.

The big payoff was a couple of years ago when during a routine check-up my doctor commented that my immune system seemed very much stronger than it had been in the past. I was seeing him less often and that didn’t hurt my feelings a bit! I knew he was right.

I tell you this story to ask you to take a look around your home. Make a list of products you need to buy. Then check the Young Living website or catalog and you may be amazed at how many of the products  are ones that you could be buying from Young Living.

Now I can already hear you saying, “Oh, but they cost more. Why would I pay more?” Well, in reality, you are NOT paying more. What I discovered is that these products are so extremely concentrated, that they actually cost less.  For example, my hair conditioner bottle lasts 6 months! No joke! My laundry soap lasts 4 months. I can’t even remember the last time I purchased my all-purpose cleaner because I get it FREE. Doesn’t get any cheaper than that!

Today I told you about NingXia Red. It’s one of my non-negotiables. Over the next few weeks, I will tell you about a few of my other favorites. But in the meantime, why don’t you poke around my website and see what piques your interest. Then get ahold of me and find out whether I have used that product and what I can tell you about it. Did you know there are actually a few products I do not like? It’s true. And I will give you my honest opinion. Here’s the link to my website: http://www.ShareScents.com — check it out and then let’s talk.

Snacks on the go

Do you “fall off the wagon” when making food, beverage and snack choices while traveling?

You pull in for gas or a “pit stop” and the choices for snacks and beverages are often well below the wellness standard you try to maintain at home.

I am so thankful for the many great options Young Living offers to keep me hydrated and satisfied; and because of that, I find most convenience store choices less appealing.

  • One of my favorites is NingXia Red. In fact, if you toss a few of the single travel packs in the freezer, they make a great cold pop snack for the kids!
  • I love the Chocolate Coated Wolfberry Crisp Bars. They satisfy my cravings for chocolate and fill me up in a healthy way!
  • When I need some energy to keep going, I reach for a NingXia Nitro shot.
  • And for a cool refreshing burst of energy and taste, there is NingXia Zyng.

These are just a few of my favorites. But there are a lot of great options available. And get this: I rarely have to purchase these items, because I save up my product points and get them for free!

In my newsletter called Oils On The Go, you also will find other suggestions for making better choices when you are on the go or traveling. And you can contact me to learn how to get free products.

Prepare for wellness!

Fall is here prepare

Where I live, the fall colors are at their peak and folks are gathering the last of their garden produce. Thoughts turn to preparing for a long winter.

One thing I do is stock up on my bottles of NingXia Red before I have to worry about the bottles freezing in the sub-zero temperatures while in transit to my home. I double up on my NingXia orders in the late summer and fall and then order other items during the winter months.

NingXia Red is a very powerful antioxidant juice drink. It is packed with nutrition and is a mainstay in my personal wellness regimen. Click here to learn more about NingXia!

NingXia Starter Kit value

Immune Support in an Unsafe World

Immune Support

It seems everyone is concerned about super bugs and pandemics these days. When school started this month, suddenly children were coming home sick with the flu and other mystery viruses. And it seems like some new health concern is in the news on a weekly basis.

I do not suggest we live in fear and isolate ourselves. But I do believe in doing everything possible to support our Immune Systems and minimize our exposure to unwanted “germs” when we are out and about. A few things come to mind.

  1. I make sure to drink my daily shot of NingXia Red to support my overall health. “Red” is a powerful antioxidant drink that supports every system of the body. It has been a huge part of my wellness journey for many years now.
  2. I always carry Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier. This amazing product is completely non-toxic. It contains grain alcohol instead of wood alcohol, and is denatured with Peppermint oil rather than toxic chemicals! No worries about adding to your toxic load when you use this powerful and convenient product!
  3. Inner Defense is a supplement I keep on hand all the time. If I feel something coming on, I just take a capsule and give my system a little extra boost.
  4. Many a time I have also simply dripped a drop of Thieves essential oil under my tongue. Quick, easy and effective!

So there are my top four suggestions to help survive in a worrisome world! What are your favorite Young Living products for immune support?

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

If you have never tried NingXia Red, get in touch with me and let’s talk! I know you will be impressed.

Skittles

I often meet folks whose health is declining rapidly and they are grasping for a quick fix. Sadly, our desire for instant gratification has trapped a lot of people in a lifestyle that they can’t seem to escape. They are addicted to foods that are leading them down a very unhealthy path.

I am also a victim of the same cravings for the wrong foods that others have. It takes will power to turn away and not grab that easy, tasty junk food to satisfy your taste buds in a weak moment. One thing that really helps is to have healthy food all cleaned and prepared to snack on. Come on- get to the store and buy some healthy food. Then by-pass the inside aisles where all the junk food is located.

It’s not always feasible to eat all this fresh produce, so you might also want to keep some of these delicious options on hand for when you are out and about.
