Meet Carol Bechtel

 

Hello! My name is Carol. I am wife to Merlin and mother to four grown children, and Grandma to four grandchildren!

Growing up, there were two things I wanted to be, a teacher and a nurse. I taught school for seven years and then married and home schooled my children. In 2002 my Sister In Law introduced us to Young living Essential oils. We had such good results with them I signed up and started on a journey of learning all about oils and their benefits. I became interested in Raindrop and in 2015 became certified to perform raindrop as well as getting my certification to teach others this wonderful technique. I feel like I am fulfilling both my childhood dreams at once. Though I never became a nurse, I love teaching people how they can enhance their health with oils.I love the Lord and thank Him daily for His grace in my life. My desire is to share His love with others and teach them of the beautiful gifts He gave us through the oils.

CONTINUING  EDUCATION CREDIT
The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education (CARE) is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider. CARE is also an Authorized Provider for the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In addition, CARE is also recognized by the Natural Therapies Certification Board (NTCB), the Spiritual Healing Licensing Board (SHLB), and the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
Raindrop originated in the 1980's through the research of Dr. D. Gary Young.  Raindrop is a powerful, non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science with the technique of Vitaflex and gentle applications of therapeutic grade oils on the feet and back. The intention of Raindrop Technique is to
stimulate every organ, muscle and bone at a cellular level bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, enabling the release of toxins wherever they may be. This may include those lodged in the mind and emotions.
 
 
APPLIED VITAFLEX
Vitaflex is an ancient healing modality that was rediscovered by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Vitaflex is a digital electrical stimulation that activates neuro-pathways, delivering benefits of the essential oils. The body has a self-regulating electrical system that Vitaflex stimulates.
 
HISTORY OF LAYING ON OF HANDS
Ancient Scripture is full of hundreds of references to "precious" oils: Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. They were considered: "the best products of the land," "the work of a skilled apothecary," "most holy" and "treasured gifts." This seminar will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day health care and show how they are intricately designed by our Creator.

Updates from Carol Bechtel

 

Caring for the Digestive System

 

60-70 Million Americans struggle with digestive disorders . The cost incurred for treatment is $141 billion annually! Many of our foods today have little or no enzymes.

 

Our enzyme levels can make or break our our digestion.

 

 

 

Enzymes are biological catalysts that speed up the chemical reactions in all living things. Without enzymes nothing would work. The purpose of enzymes are to break molecules apart or put them together, which they do very quickly. There are specific enzymes for each chemical reaction needed to make each cell work properly.

 

 

 

Many body processes that normally require high temperatures such as starch would have to come to a boiling point outside our stomachs. But with the catalytic enzyme action, starches are easily converted naturally to usable energy in the body.

 

 

 

Over 3000 known enzymes in the body perform every type of chemical conversion imaginable.

 

 

 

Metabolic Enzymes help run all the body systems. They speed up the chemical conversion within the cells for detoxification and production of energy. They are produced in the liver, pancreas and gall bladder. They enable us to think, hear, see, feel and move. One researcher found over 98 enzymes carrying out metabolic function in the arteries alone.

 

 

 

Digestive Enzymes break down the food we eat to release the nutrients in the body. These are the most talked about enzymes because food is the fuel for life. These enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract where the food is broken down and the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals that sustain life are released to be absorbed into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body. Digestive enzymes include ptyalin, pepsin, trypsin, lipase, protese, and amylase. Another enzyme, cellulose, needed to digest fiber, is not manufactured in the body so it must come from the food we eat and the supplements we take.

 

Heat is an enemy to enzymes, when the temperature reaches 118* the enzymes start to break down and at 120* the enzymes are destroyed.

 

This is done through pasteurization, sterilization, or commercial food preparation. The body creates its own enzymes for digesting food, but when the enzymes from the food are destroyed the the body is greatly taxed in its digestive function.commercially grown foods sprayed with chemicals are aslo devoid of enzymatic activity.   

Microwaving foods, high consumption of sugar and acidity in our body are also factors of destoying enzymes.

When your diet is supplemented with additional enzymes that are naturally presnt in raw foods there are two powerful benefits.

1. The body is able to extract the maximum benefit from the food.

2. The body can reduce it production of digestive enzymes, which allows it to produce more metabolic enzymes, which are very important for health, detoxification and metabolism. 

Below are listed some of the important products from young living to help with our digestion and metabolism.

 

 

 

 

Essentialzymes-4 is a multienzyme complex formulated to aid the proper digestion of dietary fats, proteins, fiber, and carbohydrates, promoting optimal nutrient absorption.

 

 

 

Essentialzyme is a multienzyme caplet formulated to improve digestive health, enzyme activity, and pancreatic function while reducing pancreatic stress.

 

 

 

 

 

Digest & Cleanse supports healthy digestion and soothes gastrointestinal upset caused by stress, overeating, and toxins. It helps soothe the bowel, prevent gas, and stimulate stomach secretions, aiding digestion.

 

 

 

DiGize A unique and proprietary Young Living essential oil blend, DiGize™ combines Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli essential oils.

 

 

 

ComforTone capsules contain an effective combination of herbs and essential oils that support the health of the digestive system by eliminating residues from the colon and enhancing its natural ability to function optimally. It also promotes liver, gall bladder, and stomach health.

 

 

 

AlkaLime With lemon and lime essential oils and organic whole lemon powder, AlkaLime neutralizes acidity and stabilizes pH levels to maintain overall health and vigor.

 

Life 9™ is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains that promotes healthy digestion, supports gut health, and helps maintain normal intestinal function for overall support of a healthy immune system.*

Raindrop Testimony

 

On a Thursday afternoon I got a text from my son saying one of his employees had been off work for three days because he was sick. As all my children do, he ask what oils would be good to support him and aid in restoration to health. He also said this young man had gone to the Dr that day and had blood work done, but no results yet. I of course did not know what was causing all these problems. But a raindrop would certainly give his body  the support it needed to promote balance and wholeness of health once again. . The young man was willing to try the raindrop, so I loaded up my massage table and oils and went to his house yet that night to give him a raindrop.

I gave the raindrop along with a prayer. On Friday his wife told me he was feeling much better, but not top notch yet. Each day over the weekend he improved and by Monday was back to work. The next Friday they received a letter from the Drs office saying he needed to call as his bloodwork was abnormal. When he called in they told him he had West Nile Virus. He was not to work, and was to go in for more bloodwork. His response was, I am fine and have been back to work for a week! Oils of Oregano and Thyme, which we use in raindrop are high in phenylpropanoids which create a hostile environment for viruses.

May God be praised for giving us the gift of Essential Oils!
