Must Have Essential oils for the Holidays

Lavender has also been shown to significantly reduce pain from headaches or migraines. In this case you should be inhaling the lavender essential oil for about 15 minutes.

 

3 ways to spot a toxic friend and why your health depends on it!

A few years ago, I did a really difficult thing when I “deleted” my oldest friend from my life. She had become such a toxic friend, that I finally realized I had to walk away.

The cold truth is that when someone becomes toxic to your life, no matter who it is, the best thing you can do is, throw out the garbage.

How to become more yourself

Well, I would ask if you ever do things you don’t want to do or don’t have the capacity to do, just to please others?

Do you ever hide your true feelings because you’re scared that being completely honest will scare the other person away? Are you shy to speak up at work or in school because you think you’ll say something stupid? Do you ever act a certain way around certain people because you want them to accept you and think that you’re like them?

 

Micronutrient Mondays – **Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)**

Conenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is part of a family called the ubiquinones and is a powerful antioxidant! Humans can synthesize CoQ10 so it’s considered nonessential, but nonetheless, deficiencies can arise. One of the biggest risk factors for deficiency is treatment with a cholesterol lowering statin medication, like Lipitor. It’s established that patients on statin medications have reduced CoQ10 levels. Some studies have shown statins can drop CoQ10 levels by as much as 40 percent.

 

Micronutrient Mondays – Chromium

Chromiuim is an essential trace mineral that’s important for optimizing INSULIN function and regulating BLOOD GLUCOSE.

Alternating Hot and Cold Showers AKA Hydrotherapy

Hot and cold showers use hot and cold water temperatures to create a makeshift “pump” in your circulatory system. Your blood vessels will dilate when exposed to hot water and then constrict when exposed to cold water, therefore giving your circulation a boost. This means greater flow through your blood vessels and lymphatic system. These networks of vessels transport oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells to your tissues and cells and remove wastes (among other important functions)! This can be used for Detoxification, Anti-aging, Skin health, Immune Health & Cellulite.
