The Silent Killer That Surrounds
We’re exposed to chemicals and synthetics in our air, food, water, and health products. Are you concerned about the constant chemical exposure and the potentially detrimental effects it can have on your health?
Fact — There is an increased number of people being diagnosed with immune-compromised conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and cancer.
Chemical manufacturers don’t have to show safety before products come to market. In the US, the FDA bans 11 chemicals that cannot be used in products like cosmetics and supplements. On the contrary, European law bans over 1300 chemicals from personal use products and supplements. Can you believe the difference?!?
The Facts Are Astonishing and
There Is Another Way
Research from the National Academy of Sciences has determined that environmental factors contribute to 28% of developmental disorders in children. This information is not so prevalent in the media. It shows that children are at greater risk and currently facing greater health challenges than found in previous generations. 1 in 6 children has developmental disorders such as ADHD, autism, and mental retardation. Childhood obesity has doubled over the past 10 years. Childhood asthma has more than doubled since 1980.
The main culprit identified is environmental toxicity such as chemicals found in our work, home, and everyday products. (Including what we use for first aid.)
When I Found Myself Facing
a Health Challenge
I discovered my abnormal lab values were most likely related to exposure to solvents found in cleaning solutions often used in hospital settings. At the time, I also used household cleaning products with chemicals. Also, my health was being hindered by the stressors of moving, maintaining my job, and family life.
My health provider’s advice included products with more synthetics. This was a wake-up call! I felt that there had to be a better way. I didn’t feel comfortable taking medications for symptoms when the root problem/concern was unknown. I went into an investigative mode to discover the “why?”
Why were these symptoms presenting? My research pointed to toxin buildup in my body. I knew I wanted a more natural remedy to bring balance to my system that was being challenged!
It’s Time For a Change
Traditional medicine stresses how important synthetic first aid products are for symptom relief. What they neglect to share is how repeated exposure to harmful synthetics has shown to cause serious health challenges. This is not acceptable.
If you’re in the healthcare field and/or are a caregiver, I’m guessing that you want to find other options. Alternatives that will limit the exposure of harmful chemicals.
You Have Options to Protect Yourself from Everyday Toxins + Stressors
Essential oils were one of the first medicines. Their therapeutic properties are cited in ancient texts including the Bible. Ancient people didn’t know about germs and the immune system but they did know about using aromatherapy and herbs. In fact, many medications were derived from plant substances. Essential oils contain constituents that prove to balance our mind, body, and spirit. Evidence shows positive results in managing stress, anxiety, pain, and other first-aid concerns.
Safeguarding Against the
Mis-use of Essential Oils
The use of aromatherapy is becoming very popular. Even the people we care for are using essential oils. Unfortunately, many people are using these products in an unsafe manner. Guiding plans of care may be challenging when you aren’t familiar with essential oil action or their quality.
Not all essential oils are created equal! Most essential oil products contain synthetics or have been altered from their source. The quality and safety of your essential oils are very important if you wish to use them for everyday wellness and general first aid (Buckle, 2015). Otherwise, you may be adding to the toxic buildup in your system and potential illness or health concerns.
Learning this, I began to study aromatherapy history and reviewed the research. I started using a couple of essential oils for my specific concerns based on the evidence. My health situation began to improve. I had greater energy and other beneficial changes which my lab results confirmed. My confidence became greater and I started to share more with friends and colleagues who excitedly related how the different oils helped their first aid needs.
That’s when I decided to share all my knowledge and research in a program that was accessible 24/7 worldwide. As a Clinical Nurse Specialist and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, the safety and correct practice of essential oils is really important to me.
