The Right Way to Hydrate

Yes you can drink too much water.  The recommendation for daily water consumption is to limit water intake to a little over 2 liters, or up to 10 (8 ounce) glasses per day.  Your kidneys do a good job of filtering excess water, but more than this is generally not needed for nonactive hours.

Consider drinking Slim & Sassy in your water or taking the Slim & Sassy geltabs as a way to maximize your body’s hydration efforts.  The oils used in the Slim & Sassy blend are carefully formulated to maximize your body’s natural functions. to aid in weight loss and engaging your natural metabolism.

The Slim & Sassy blend is specially designed to help control hunger and to help limit excessive calorie intake.  The oils in this blend are calming to the stomach and work to improve emotional well-being.  Slim & Sassy is most effective when combined with exercise and healthy eating and contains the following:

  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon

Beat the Bloat

Sometimes, no matter how hard you work and no matter how disciplined you are about dieting and working out, you may still feel like your a little chubby.  This feeling is normal and is not evidence based but instead on a perception you may have.  To put perspective to this, what you may see or feel could very well be temporary and a something that may be easily fixed.  The condition I’m describing is one that everyone has heard of, it’s known as bloat.

bloating

Bloating is an abnormal swelling, increase in diameter or feeling of fullness and tightness in the abdominal area as gas and liquid are trapped inside.  Common causes of bloating can include overeating, menstraution, constipation, food allergies, and irritable bowel syndrome.

When dealing with bloat, it’s important to identify a few things.  First, there are four factors that can influce how prone you are to bloating or fluid retention.  Consider if your life has one or more of the following:

  1. Stress:  A stressful event triggers hormone fluctuations that raise blood pressure and divert blood to your extremities, causing your digestive system to slow down.  This can leasve that last meal sitting around in your intestine a little longer, causing bloating
  2. Lack of fluid.  It’s true that you need about 8 glasses of water a day.  Drinking water and eating “watery” foods such as greens, melon, and other fruits and veggies gueard against water retention and constipation, which can cause bloating.
  3. Lack of sleep.  Your nervous system depends on adequate sleep.  Too little sleep disrupts the intricate workings of this system, which controls the rhythmic contractions of your GI tract and helps keep thins humming along.
  4. Air travel.  The average plan maintains cabin pressure equal to 5,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level in order to provide a comfortable atmosphere for the assengers.  At that altitude, free air in the body cavities tends to expand by around 25 percent.  Pressure changes also increase the production of gases in your digestive system.  As the pressure in the cabin drops, the air in your intestines expands, causing bloating and discomfort.  Cabin pressurization is also responsible for increased water retention because it impacts your body’s natural fluid balance.  Add in the dehydration caused by recirculated air, and those bloat miles add up.  Before and during your flight, drink as much water as possble and walk around as often as possble during the flight.

Each of the factors listed above can be controlled or reversed.  What’s more, there’s a lot we can do to minmize bloat by what and how we eat.  Take some time and practice avoiding the following foods:

  • Eat four 300 calorie meals a day
  • Drink on full recipe of Slim and Sassy Water per day
  • Eat Slowly
  • Avoid the following foods
    • Alcohol, coffee, tea, hot cocoa and acidic fruit juices
    • Bulky raw foods
    • Carbonated drinks
    • Chewing gum
    • Excess carbs
    • Fatty foods
    • Fried foods
    • Gassy foods, including broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, citris fruits, legumes, onions and peppers
    • Salt from the saltshaker, salt-based seasonings and highly processed foods
    • Spicy foods, including foods seasoned with barbecue sauce, black pepper, chilie peppers, chili powder, cloves, garlic, horseradish, hot sauce, ketchup, mutard, nutmeg, onions, tomato sauce, or vinegar
    • Sugar alcohols, such as xylitol and maltitol, which are often found in low-calorie, low-carb, or sugar free products such as candy, chewing gum, ice cream and jam.

Finally, using essential oils for health is also a great way to reduce bloating.  In addition to using Slim and Sassy on a daily basis, also use DigestZen by applying directly to the stomach and to reflex points on the feet.

Mito 2 Max

cola beverage

 

As I am weaning myself from all beverages caffeinated, I have a new found appreciation for Mito 2 Max.  Now, as a part of my daily vitamin regimen, I am sure to include the Mito 2 Max.  Because of it, my workouts are more intense, my mind more focused and I really and dig in and get things done without feeling that deep fatigue that comes by mid-day.  As with anything, I immediately became intrigued by what was in the Mito 2 Max and quickly found out that what sets it apart from other supplements is that it doesn’t stimulate cells with caffeine or Taurine, but rather regenerates the cells themselves.  I want to share what I found….

dōTERRA Mito2Max is a proprietary formula of standardized plant extracts and metabolic cofactors that supports healthy cellular energy production. Mito2Max supports optimal mitochondrial function and aerobic capacity, and it supports stamina naturally without the use of harmful stimulants. Use Mito2Max as a healthy, long-term alternative to caffeinated drinks and supplements for increased energy and vitality.*

 

mito2max

 

CONCEPT: Trillions of cells make up each human body. It is remarkable to reflect on the synergy that occurs between those cells to create life for each of us. The “energy” for life comes from within each of these cells and is known as the mitochondria. As we age, our body’s mitochondrial function becomes less efficient. This leaves us with lower levels of energy and more toxic cellular exhaust. The sports and activities we enjoyed in our youth can become less enjoyable. Some people try to boost their energy levels through caffeine and other stimulants that can provide a quick buzz but often leave us feeling worse. Mito2Max contains dōTERRA’s proprietary energy and stamina complex that enhances mitochondria function, supports stamina and endurance, helps the body adapt more quickly to the diverse activities of life, and helps to increase mental energy.* Acetyl-L-carnitine, a primary ingredient, supports mental health, mitochondrial function, and circulation to the brain. Ashwagandha root extract, which has been called the “herb of the ages” due to the many uses that it provides, has been studied for generations and has been utilized for boosting energy levels and supporting immunity and libido, while also reducing the effects of anxiety, insomnia, and stress. Perhaps the greatest quality is its ability to support regeneration of cells from damage caused by molecules knows as free radicals. A great antioxidant that can help prevent the spread of free radicals is Ginkgo Biloba, which improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant. Mito2Max is the perfect way to boost your exogenous antioxidant intake, controlling the spread of free radicals and maximizing your mitochondrial energy levels each day.

 

PRIMARY BENEFITS •

  • Promotes efficient production of ATP in the mitochondria of cells*
  • Enhances stamina and efficient use of oxygen*
  • Supports metabolic adaptation for diverse activities, from movie watching to marathon running*
  • Improves mental energy*

Dr. Oz takes Herb Based Healthcare Mainstream

This is an amazing segment that recently aired on the Today show.  Dr. Oz talked about the medicinal compounds found in herbs and of course anyone with knowledge of essential oils knows the value of supporting our health using natural compounds.  I am passionate about this subject and have experienced, first hand, the value of treating your health with these “gifts from the earth.”  Dr. Hill, the chief medical officer at doTERRA states:  “essential oils themselves are not smart, but our bodies are smart and know how to respond to natural medicine.

There are so many valuable uses for essential oils, there’s immune support, decreasing toxic load as well as creating emotional balance.  Fortifying these aspects of our health are vital to our longevity and overall quality of life.  Tap into the power of essential oils today!  

CPTG

There are a great number of variables that influence the actual essential oil you receive in the 15 ml bottle that contains approximately 300 drops of oil that you will carefully use for the well-being of you, your family, and friends. That 15ml was extracted and distilled from up to 300 pounds of plant matter.  Consider the following to be of utmost importance to you:

Where and how was that plant grown?  What were the soil conditions?    What were the water conditions during the growing season?  Were there any insecticides, pesticides, or herbicides used?  Is it truly organic?

When and how was the material harvested?  Was it the right season?  The correct maturity of the plant?  The optimum time of day?

What about the processing?  Were proper cleaning and preparation made with the equipment?  Were the correct parts of the plant used in the distillation process?  Were temperatures maintained at proper levels?  Were the clean and viable containers used during the process and for gathering?

What about packaging and distribution?  Were the clean and viable containers used during the process and for gathering?  Was there any cutting (adding other similar and hard-to-detect less expensive oils) done to lower the cost of the oil?

These and other questions are very important to each of as we use essential oils and their derivative products.  Unfortunately it would be impossible for any one of us to answer all these question.  Fortunately, dōTERRA is making it their business to answer each of these questions.  The first two items in dōTERRA’s Mission Statement are that they will see that we, as their customers, receive the best-sourced and best-processed essential oils in the world.  Then they will use the most modern Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectroscopy testing (see below the dōTERRA description of this testing)  through a third party to assure us that testing standards will meet or exceeding ISO and AFNOR standards.  As a pledge of this quality they will label these products with their trade marked seal of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, CPTG® .

dōTERRA’s products, as explained above, stand alone as Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, CPTG® .  Below this in guaranteed purity in the industry are these grades of products.

Grade A essential oils are pure therapeutic quality (highest grade) and are usually made from naturally (often organically) grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation. This is the category that all of DōTerra’s essential oils and essential oil-enhanced products start from. Beyond this they are tested and certified as described above.

Grade B essential oils are food grade; they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, chemical/synthetic extenders, or carrier oils.

Grade C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils. They also usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil.

Floral Water is a byproduct of the distillation process and can be very high quality if it comes from a Grade A distillation process. Accordingly it is of very low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials and/or poor distillation processes.

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, CPTG®  is the label you will see on dōTERRA Essential Oils.  Of lesser-guaranteed purity will be those with labels such as “Pure Essential Oil or “Pure Therapeutic Grade”.

Our admiration to the dōTERRA founding team for their commitment to our safety and well-being.

dōTERRA’s own description of CPTG® testing:

CPTG® Testing Methods

dōTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®* quality protocol employs five different analytical methods to ensure dōTERRA’s essential oils are both pure (extracts contain only the volatile aromatic compounds of a plant), and potent (extracts have consistent chemical composition from batch to batch). The CPTG quality protocol requires the use of independent laboratories for standardization and testing.

Test 1: Gas Chromatography

After the aromatic compounds (also called essential oils) are carefully distilled from plant material, samples are tested for chemical composition using gas chromatography. In gas chromatography, volatile essential oil compounds are vaporized and passed through a long column called a gas chromatograph. Each individual compound travels or “elutes” through the column at a different rate and is measured as it exits the column during the testing period. Using gas chromatography, quality control engineers can determine which compounds are present in a test sample and, as importantly, at what levels.

Test 2: Mass Spectrometry

In addition to gas chromatography, essential oil samples also are tested for composition using mass spectrometry. In mass spectrometry, samples are vaporized and then ionized and each individual compound in a sample is measured by weight. Mass spectrometry provides additional insight to the purity of an essential oil by revealing the presence of non-aromatic compounds, such as heavy metals or other pollutants, which are too heavy to elute along a gas chromatograph. The combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry is sometimes referred to as a GC/MS test.

Test 3: FTIR Scan (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy)

After an essential oil passes the gas chromatography and mass spectrometry tests, it is transported to a manufacturing facility for filling. Before being released into the facility, the essential oil “batch” is held in quarantine while additional quality tests are performed. Those tests include an FTIR Scan which, similar to GC/MS testing, is also a analysis of material composition. In an FTIR Scan, a light is shown at the material sample and the amount of light absorbed by the chemical constituents of the sample is measured. Results are then compared against a historical database to ensure adherence to composition standards.

Test 4: Microbial Testing

Before a batch of essential oils can be released from quarantine to manufacturing, it must be tested for the presence of bio-hazards such as bacteria, fungus, and mold. In microbial testing, samples are drawn from each batch of essential oils and applied to growing mediums in dishes or “plates.” After an incubation period, each plate is analyzed for growth of microbes. This test is performed on all incoming material to the manufacturing facility, and also performed on finished product to ensure no harmful organisms have been introduced to the product during the filling and labeling process, and to ensure shelf-life stability.

Test 5: Organoleptic Testing

Organoleptic testing brings a human touch to each step of the CPTG quality control process. Organoleptics include those attributes of an essential oil that can be tested with taste, sight, touch, and smell. From growers and harvesters to essential oil chemists; from manufacturing engineers to essential oil practitioners; dōTERRA’s global network of essential oil providers carefully monitors the quality of each CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oil. The extraction of essential oils is very much an art form that can be enhanced by, but not replaced with, mechanical analytics. The wisdom and experience of dōTERRA’s essential oil experts are an indispensable part of the CPTG quality control standard

Diet Soda Study

cola beverage

This was a fascinating feature on NBC Nightly News tonight that I wanted to share.

http://www.nbcnews.com/health/diet-fitness/diet-drinks-linked-heart-disease-death-n66476

Over time, we are learning more and more about the health implications of consuming soda pop.  This study specifically addresses the consumption of diet soda pop and its effect on middle aged women.

I love a good Diet Coke from time to time and there are days when I partake.  However, more and more, as I’m reading and researching these important studies, I am quickly losing my appetite for these synthetic substances.

As an alternative to soda pop, I have a growning appreciation for water with CPTG citrus essential oils like lemon, lime or grapefruit.  One drop of CPTG doTERRA essential oil in 8 oz of cold, filtered water is a healthy alternative to diet sodas and I notice that it curbs the craving for pop.  Now I just need to get my kids on board with it.

Healing Emotions with Essential Oils

emotional wellness

There’s a great new book on the shelf titled ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’.  This important book outlines the different and the specific uses for supporting wellness using doTERRA essential oils.  The book reminds us that we we experience physical healing and health, we are invited to enter the emotional realm through five stages of healing, including:

  1. Assist in healing our physical body
  2. Assist in healing the heart – Essential oils raise the vibration of the physical body; as a result, lower energies become unbearable and the body wants to release – stagnant anger, sadness, grief and judgment.
  3. Assist in releasing limiting beliefs – must release in order to make space to receive.
  4. increase spiritual awareness and connection – higher energies attract more, higher energies on a spiritual plane.
  5. inspire the fulfillment of our life’s purpose – restores healing, self-awareness and self confidence.

A list of oils that support emotional healing include:

Basil, Bergamot, Birch, Black Pepper, Cassia, Cedarwood, Cilantro, Cinnamon, Clary Sage, Clove, Coriander, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Frankincense, Geranium, Ginger, Grapefruit, Helichrysum, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Marjoram, Melaleuca, Melissa, Myrrh, Oregano, Patchouli, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Tangerine, Thyme, Vetiver, White Fir, Wild orange, Wintergreen, Ylang Ylang.

My “go to” oils for emotional wellness include Lemon, Grapefruit and Juniper Berry.

For a full description of the oils’ emotional properties and the emotions addressed using each oil, you can reference the book Emotions & Essential Oils – Second Edition.
