Toxic Chemicals Threatened My Life

 
After facing many life-threatening illnesses because of toxins, I have dedicated my life to helping others achieve wellness and abundance and I would love to help you too. 

Many people know that I am a cancer survivor. But few know that I also have a life-long battle with asthma because of a toxic-chemical I inhaled as a toddler. 
 
The chemical I inhaled was in a very common lawn fertilizer sold in many stores. Because of those toxins, I had countless pneumonias, collapsed lungs, an open lung biopsy at 4 years old, and I had to live for a full year in a hospital. My parents were told that I wasn’t expected to live past 13 years old. 
 
What that taught all me is that we cannot always rely on labels or advertisements to tell us what is safe for our own health. 
 
So through my life, I have tried to use as many “natural” products as possible for my home cleaning, personal care, or in any other area that touches my or my family’s life. But a little while ago, a friend urged me to look a little closer because there are also things in these so-called natural products that are known toxins. I began by pulling products out of my cabinets and doing Google searches on the ingredients. (There is also a great FREE mobile app called Think Dirty where you can scan barcodes directly - it is a great start but a Google search can give even more detailed information).
 
What I discovered is shocking and horrifying. Many of my every day products had well-known cancer causing and endocrine disrupting chemicals even though their labels indicated they were natural or healthy. I knew that my asthma was directly caused by toxic chemicals but could my cancer have been too? My genetic tests showed that I wasn’t genetically predisposed which means it was most likely from my environment.
 
Once I realized the harmful ingredients in these products, I literally threw them all into the garbage - makeups, floor cleaners, kitchen cleaners, moisturizers, dryer sheets, detergents, shampoos and so many products I had trusted for years. 
 
Next, I had to replace them with truly natural products that I could actually trust. Thankfully, my friend was using products that she loved so I began sampling and researching those as well as many others to see what might be a good fit for our own home. 
 
I fell in love with the products she introduced me to because they were not only pure but they also smelled amazing and had so many more uses than I had expected. They aren’t the least expensive but what I have seen is that again, other products are labeling themselves as natural and pure, but adding synthetic fillers and fragrances that make it less expensive, but also more harmful. My family’s health is priceless.
 
So I have taken it as my mission to help you and others learn how to get rid of things that might be harming their lives and how to know what is actually safe to replace them with.

It's runny nose, stuffy head, and cough season! Want natural ways to help?

It's runny nose, stuffy head, and cough season! Want natural ways to help?
It's that time of year when everyone seems to have a cold or flu! Those aches, congestion and poor sleep make things so miserable. Here are a few natural home things you can try for you or your family.

1.    Throat and Chest Massage

Directly massaging the throat and chest with essential oils is an enjoyable home remedy that can deliver positive results (and feel oh so good)! Cedarwood and Frankincense are often used in combination as a remedy for coughs because they help to loosen mucous and clear the lungs. Cypress, Peppermint and Helichrysum further assist with opening the airways.

Natural cough remedy:
Try massaging a diluted combination of Cedarwood, Peppermint, Frankincense, Cypress and Helichrysum directly onto the chest area.
Sore throat remedy:
Rub a diluted mixture of Lemon, Peppermint and Tea Tree (Melaleuca) essential oil directly on the throat. Start at the base of the ears and continue with downward strokes along the sides of the neck. Rub from the underside of the chin down both sides of the trachea. Repeat up to three times daily.

Sinus congestion or “stuffiness” can be one of the most unpleasant symptoms of the common cold, and it can lead to sinus headaches. Try these tips and get ready to breathe the free air again, friends!
  • If nasal congestion has got the best of you, gently massage near the nostrils with a local application of diluted Cedarwood or Tea Tree essential oil. Make sure you avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes.
  • Got a bad case of sniffles and runny nose? Combine a few drops of Lavender or Peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil and rub the mixture onto the nose, massaging near the nostrils. Both of these oils can help with runny nose symptoms (and they also smell delightful).
Before bed, use Lavender and Peppermint oils to massage the sinuses. This may help to clear the sinuses so you can breathe better as you drift off to sleep. As with all essential oils, be careful to keep these oils away from the eyes, mouth and the inside of the nose.

3.    Steam Inhalation

Deep breaths in… deep breaths out! Have you ever noticed that your sinuses seem to clear up when you take a hot shower? The steam helps moisturize and soothe your nasal passages, and when combined with specific essential oils (you guessed it), steam inhalation can help to loosen mucous and bring relief to the sinuses. 

Unfortunately staying in the shower forever isn’t an option, but not to worry! Here are a few simple steam bowl alternatives:

For congestion, sore throat and sinus headaches:
  • Combine 3 – 12 drops of Lemon, Lavender, Marjoram and Lime in a bowl or pot of steaming water. Deeply inhale the steam.
  • Lemon and Lime assist with congestion by helping to break down mucous, while Marjoram and Lavender help to relieve headaches due to sinus congestion.

Remedy for cough and postnasal drip:
  • Place 3 – 12 drops of Marjoram, Lavender, Cedarwood and Peppermint oils in a bowl of steaming water. Position your face directly above the bowl and slowly breathe in the steam for approximately 5 – 10 minutes. This practice can be completed up to three times each day.

4.    Direct Essential Oil Inhalation

If steaming water is not readily available to you, we’ve got an even easier method to try.  Apply 1 – 6 drops of Lime, Lemon or Peppermint essential oil to a tissue or handkerchief and inhale occasionally up to three times daily.

Lime and Lemon help to loosen mucous, while Peppermint can help to reduce upper respiratory tract symptoms from colds including sore throat and cough. All three have the added benefit of a refreshing, pleasant aroma.

There’s no doubt about it: anything that comforts and soothes while you’re sick is an absolute blessing. A warm essential oil bath can be just the thing your body needs and can feel utterly blissful. Adding the following essential oils to the bathwater can help ease your symptoms of stuffiness and sore throat and enhance your relaxation. 

Combine 2 – 8 drops total of any of the following essential oils with an equal amount of liquid soap or shampoo:
Add the mixture to a warm bath and gently blend it into the water with your hands. Soak in the bath for 10 minutes and enjoy!

6.    Warm Compresses

Compresses can be just what the doctor ordered. Infuse your compress with essential oils that are approved to help alleviate symptoms of colds and coughs.

Add 2 drops of any of the following essential oils to a bottle filled with 500 ml of warm water:
Cedarwood                             – Lime
Marjoram                                – Helichrysum
Clove                                          – Cypress
Frankincense                         – Thyme
Tea Tree                                    – Geranium
Peppermint                           – Jade Lemon
Lemon                                       – Lavender

Shake the bottle thoroughly, then soak your compress (a clean, absorbent washcloth is recommended). Gently squeeze the compress to remove excess moisture. Apply the compress directly on the forehead, across the nose and cheeks, on the throat or on the chest. It can also be placed over the ears as a remedy for earaches stemming from head cold congestion. Cover the compress with a t-shirt or towel and leave in place for 2 to 4 hours. You can apply your compress up to three times each day.

7.    Warm Liquids

Take advantage of the natural soothing effects of heat while you’re sick with a cold! First, rub a local application of diluted Frankincense, Thyme, Lavender, Tea Tree or Peppermint essential oils onto your throat, chest or forehead. Then, while you’re relaxing and breathing in the aroma of the oils, drink a soothing mixture of apple cider vinegar with honey. Warm liquids can feel good on a sore throat and can become a relaxing part of your bedtime routine.

In addition to utilizing these home remedies to treat colds, don’t forget that getting adequate rest, eating healthy foods and taking care of your body are essential to recovery.
