Essential Oils, The Colon,
and Body Feedback


"There is in every human being's heart the love of wonder, the sweet amazement of the stars and the starlike things, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing childlike appetite of 'what next' in the joy of the game of living."

~ Samuel Ullman

Building, and rebuilding, health is a process, a challenge, part of "the joy of the game of living." At the Optimal Health Center, we relish in this challenge: every person who walks in our door requires us to think freshly about how to be a part of a healing team, how to effectively and deeply address individual healing needs, and how to keep ourselves continuously growing in health while we meet the unique and worthy challenges of our clients.

This spirit of growth has lead to our collaboration with a local acupuncturist, Michelle Buchanan, to develop Essential Oil Body Feedback™.

Essential oils and their volatile constituents are used widely to avoid or treat human disease and provide bioactivity as antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, and antidiabetic agents. In the colon, application of appropriate essential oils can improve the elimination process, promote healing of the lining of the colon, reduce inflammation, and promote a healthy flora balance.**

Testing essential oils using Essential Oil Body Feedback™ ensures that appropriate oils are selected for use. Areas of tenderness, pain, discomfort, and tightness in the body correspond to health problems or potential concerns. These signs of discomfort, especially pain, are the body's method for communicating that something is not right. Every problem in your body is recognized by your brain. Any weakness or symptom in the body, any imbalance with hormones, blood sugar, or emotional health, any physical trauma, and any sign of accelerated aging is acknowledged in the brain. Essential Oil Body Feedback™ uses the connection between the brain and the body along with therapeutic grade essential oils to tell you what your body requires to promote healing.

We invite you to read through our numerous new articles to learn more about essential oils and Essential Oil Body Feedback™.

101 Uses for the Everyday Oils Kit

We have many testimonials of how effective essential oils and the Essential Oil Body Feedback™ tools are. I would like to share one received by the healers in my office:

"On my way into work, I felt anxiety over my dog's illness and upcoming surgery. This created bloating and pain in my abdomen - where I hold all of my anxiety. When arriving at work, I rubbed my stomach and surrounding area with a little coconut oil and about 3 drops each of fennel essential oil and peppermint essential oil. (Both known for their digestive healing properties, I tested myself for their immediate usefulness and they tested positively for my body.) Within 15 minutes my bloating and pain were gone! A co-worker later complained of some indigestion and I had her try this method also. She experienced the same relief within 20 minutes."


We are confident that you too will find implementing essential oils and Essential Oil Body Feedback™ into your health rituals can offer you a greater ease with taking care of your individual body. A great place to start with your essential oil collection is the Young Living Everyday Oils Kit. Contact us any time for help with choosing and using essential oils and with learning the process of Essential Oil Body Feedback™.

**Please consult with a knowledgeable health practitioner before using any essential oils.
low-carb diet

Cardiac Surgeon Recommends
Low-Carb, High-Saturated-Fat Diet


ARTICLE EXCERPT:

"One of the major health benefits of a low-carbohydrate diet is weight loss. It enables one to lose excess weight without having to consciously restrict calories (Ann Int Med 2004;140:769-777). A low-carb diet lowers blood glucose in diabetics (Diabetes 2004;53:2375-2382). It improves insulin sensitivity (N Engl J Med 2003;348:2074-81). Indeed, carbohydrate restriction (with fat replacing carbohydrates) is on the way to becoming the Ten Days book coverpreferred method for treating type-2 diabetes and its precursor, metabolic syndrome (Scand Cardiovasc J 2008;42:256-263). Restricting carbohydrates can also lower blood pressure (JAMA 2004;292:24822-2490)."
