Cleanse It Out!

We all feel a little less than vibrant and healthy after the holidays and New Years. Let me show and tell you how I get myself back on track after inhaling copious amounts of sugar and junk!

Everything you see above is a piece of my DAILY routine throughout the whole year to help detox my body and give it the nutrients and help it needs!

FIRST UP: GX ASSIST

GX Assist is a gentle gut cleanse that aids in digestion AND rids your gut of unnecessary sugar, candida, and yeast which causes sugar cravings, inflammation, headaches, fatigue, hormone imbalances, anxiety, depression, and so much more! Gx Assist is like a good ole fashioned reset. Which, let's be honest, we ALL need that after grandmas home made Christmas Eve rolls, and Christmas morning cinnamon rolls! 

HOW & WHEN I USE GX ASSIST

  • Ingest one capsule 2-3 times a day before my meals for 10 days.
  • After my days is up I take a good probiotic (I use doTERRAs PB Assist) for another 10 days. Your probiotic will reestablish good bacteria/flora in your gut lining. YOU CANNOT DO ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER! 

Throughout your 10 days you may feel mild stomach cramping, diarrhea, constipation, or fatigue. This happens because your body most likely has never been properly detoxed. Your body goes through a "what the freak are you doing to me?" period. This is perfectly normal and actually a good sign! It means your gut is getting the proper cleanse it needs! 

I REPEAT THIS PROCESS EVERY 2-3 MONTHS.

#2 Copaiba Essential Oil

Oh, how I could go on about Copaiba. I did a blog post about all the benefits of Copaiba back in September. To read up on all that information click below! 

The reasons I use Copaiba essential oil everyday: 

  • Anxiousness (what mother doesn't have anxiety?) 
  • Immune support (struggled since I contracted West Nile when I was 12)
  • Digestion (if you don't know me already-my digestive tract is about as reliant as a lazy whale)
  • Inflammation (achy knees and lower back) 

HOW AND WHEN I USE COPAIBA

  • In an empty veggie capsule I drop 4 drops Copaiba essential oil 
  • Take in the morning with my warm lemon water and 2 boiled (or scrambled eggs) and fermented veggies
  • I will do this until I'm in my grave :)

#3 DDR PRIME

DDR Prime has been my savings grace since I was 19 years old. This blend stands for DAMAGED DNA REPAIR. Excuse me while I drool because how can I resist repair for my good ole DNA?! :D HA! 

THE REASONS I USE DDR PRIME

  • Supports my body at a cellular level which reduces chance of: 
  1. Autoimmune disorders
  2. Hormone imbalances
  3. Anxiousness/sadness
  4. Inflammation (which can cause systemic yeast, chronic fatigue, headaches, joint and muscle problems, and so much more!)
  • Has eradicated my chronic fatigue 
  • Reversed my hair loss
  • Increased my alertness and focus throughout the day

HOW AND WHEN I USE DDR PRIME

DoTERRA has come out with pre-filled veggie capsules which I usually purchase. But this month I have the actual oil blend instead. In an empty veggie capsule I drop 6 drops (or take 2 pre-filled capsules) of oil and take with my warm lemon water in the morning. This REALLY helps me throughout the day. 

I've experimented with this routine I have shared with you, and every time I stop giving my body all this added help and support I immediately revert back to my old symptoms: chronic fatigue, severe ALL DAY headaches/migraines, intense digestive pain to the point where I cannot function, horrible anxiety, patches of hair falling out, and MUCH more! 

I will be honest, this is NOT everything I do to support my body! I use a couple other supplements and products (doTERRA and other brands) that have given me so much relief. Don't worry, I love to share my knowledge so watch for more blog posts about overall body support and cleansing! 

I genuinely hope this has given some of you help and hope! I'm so glad you are part of my health and wellness journey! 

Happy New Year beautiful people!

Cannabis, I mean... COPAIBA

GUYS! It's been years!! Actually, it's only been about 4 weeks since I've done a blog post. But it FEELS like years. 

The last month has been beyond crazy at our house. Travelled to New York in the middle of August for work, had DoTERRAs annual convention shortly after returning, one of my New York team members flew in, that same week we had my father-in-law fly in from Australia, AND my brother-in-laws wedding. WWWHHHAATT? Sam and I have been beyond exhausted!

My loves, doTERRA announced quite a few new essential oils! YAY! I'm excited about all of them, of course. But one in particular is COPAIBA. 

COPAIBA & CANNABIS 

I'll be honest, I'm an advocate for medical marijuana because I believe the good Lord put natural medicine on this earth for a reason. Copaiba is the closest legal essential oil to cannabis.  I could make your heads spin with all the science lingo of CB1, CB2, and how those interact with the CB receptors, and the THC levels. But I won't. All I'll say is Copaiba is legal in Utah, which means it won't get you high, but it DOES have incredible benefits for your body!

BENEFITS OF COPAIBA

  • Liver & Antioxidant support 
  • Cardiovascular, digestive, nervous, and immune system support

Lets take a second to think about the last bullet point. That's basically your entire body! People, by using Copaiba almost ALL systems of your body is being supported! That means that this essential oil can help:

  1. Gluten intolerances, allergies, digestive enzyme deficiencies, constipation.
  2. Brain, nerves, sensory & motor function. (Nervous system)
  3. Gut health (immune system), bacterial and viral infection.
  4. Blood circulation, oxygenation, hormones & metabolism

F YOU'RE NOT CONVINCED TO INCORPORATE COPAIBA NOW...YOU'RE AN IDIOT. ;) 

  • Soothes and calms nervous system 
  • Stress
  • Anxiousness
  • High antioxidant levels with stops damage to cells through oxidation!  

HOW I PERSONALLY USE COPAIBA

  • Diffuse in Wild Bills room at night
  • Take internally in veggie capsule every afternoon (3 drops)
  • Drop 15 drops in 5 mL roller bottle, fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil, and rub on bottom of feet for our whole family! 
  • Diffuse during a stressful day or when I feel anxious (all the damn time). 

Just another oil to become legitimately addicted to! Sorry Sam. ;) 

Go use some Copaiba, people! You and your family needs it!

My Latest & Greatest Health Crisis

IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL, PEOPLE! 

Like I've said in past blog posts...I'm pretty  much an open book. I don't mind sharing intimate details of my life with people. In fact, I actually enjoy it. I know that sounds a bit strange, but I enjoy becoming closer to other individuals and letting them in on my life. Over the course of my life I've always struggled with different health issues- digestive problems from Kindergarten, West Nile at age twelve, fatigue, headaches, more stomach issues, hair loss, food allergies, postpartum anxiety, anxiety in general, blah blah blah. That's why I decided to go to school to learn about holistic ways of healing! Over the last 5 years or so I've come to realize something: don't we ALL have something going on? EVERYONE is either struggling with depression, weight gain, digestive issues, hormonal problems, etc. 

The last year and a half has been particularly difficult, for me personally. Like I said, I've always struggled with stomach issues. From the time I was about six, I remember always having a constant, underlying pain that seemed to never go away. Of course my saint of a mother took me to doctors, specialists, herbalists, and naturopaths. Did they help? Yes, of course! But one can only spend $300 during one visit so many times. Especially once you start going out, getting married, poppin' out babies, buying a house...ya know, regular life events. 

About 18 months ago the pain in my stomach started becoming too much to handle. I would eat a piece of lettuce I would be doubled over in pain, I would drink water-the same thing would happen. This wasn't/isn't the regular, 'Oh, it's just gas. It will go away once I eat something or take a sip of water." Oh, no! 

Last summer, after we moved into our brand new home, we met some amazing neighbors (who I now consider one our families best friends). We decided to go to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Anyone who knows me, or has been around me for longer than 45 minutes, knows that I don't just "like", or "enjoy" this restaurant. If I had the money to eat there breakfast, second breakfast, lunch, dinner, and second dinner, I TOTES would! Anyways, we go to dinner, we order, we eat. About 3 minutes into my meal the stomach pain starts creeping up. This isn't just my regular attack. I'm feeling it come on like a pack of wolves devouring their prey. Everyone is bantering back and forth with each other. Not me, I'm trying to not burst into tears and scream with pain. My solution? Go lay on the bathroom floor because I can't even sit up straight in our booth. I lay there for 15 minutes with absolutely no relief. There's a line for the stalls and mothers are needing the big stall to change their infants diaper. But, I could hardly breathe-yes, BREATHE. Let alone, stand up and go back out with a happy face, ready to make jokes. But, I do...because I don't want to be rude! After 10 more minutes of sitting up I can't take the pain anymore. I go back to the stall praying the line is a little shorter and take my sweet time enjoying my rest next to the public porcelain throne. I know, super GROSS. This is the kind of pain and inconvenience my stomach puts me through on a very regular basis. This doesn't just happen once a month, every now and then, or periodically. It happens EVERY DAMN DAY. 

My stomach pain takes away a lot of eventful and enjoyable times from my sweet little family. In fact, my husband often jokes (but serious, at the same time. Ha!) that anytime we plan anything fun, we better plan to have me doubled over in pain. Bless his heart, though. He just keeps on loving me! Over the last 18-months I've really had to look at what can help me, and how to give myself some relief. About two nights ago, I felt an attack coming on. I had a thought come into my head "PB Assist & Terrazyme". This was weird to me because I often to GX Assist & PB Assist, but never PB Assist and Terrazyme together. I went into our kitchen and popped two pills. Within about 10 minutes I felt my stomach pain going away! WWWHHHAAATTT?! No. This can't be happening is what I was thinking to myself. But thank the good Lord, it was happening! 

 Wild Bill ecstatic his hot mess mother doesn't have to be such a hot mess anymore ;)

For those of you who don't know what PB Assist and Terrazyme is, let me give you a quick lesson. PB Assist is a probiotic with over six BILLION live probiotics. That's not just cool, that's unheard of and incredible. Terrazyme is an enzyme formula specifically for the digestive tract. When your body doesn't have enough enzymes to break down and digest your food-that's where Terrazyme comes into play. 

My point is...I GET it. I get not being able to eat whatever you want, whenever you want. I get having to basically starve yourself because the pain is too much to handle WITHOUT food in your system, let alone once you start eating a little snack! I get having to seem like "that girl"...ya know, the one who "thinks she's too fat" since she's not indulging in the hamburger and macaroni salad at the barbecue. I just GET it. That's why I decided to share this post and my experience with the world. My passion is helping people. If sharing my experience of what's helped me, help another suffering wife and mother, my mission is complete! If you suffer with chronic stomach issues I would HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest some PB Assist and Terrazyme! Heaven knows it's my life saver at the moment! 

 Just helping Mama!

Summer Freshness: Cilantro & Lime

Cilantro & Lime


 My new favorite way to use my oils is cooking! Add a drop of Oregano in the spaghetti, a little Wild Orange in my smoothies, and of course Lime and Cilantro in my tomato and onion salsa. 

Cilantro and Lime aren't only beneficial for your salsa though. To name some of the incredible things Cilantro and Lime are good for- detoxing, cleansing, weight loss, seasonal itchy eyes/runny nose, eliminating heavy metals from your body and blood stream. The list goes on and on. 

Okay let's get to the nitty gritty. How do I use Cilantro?

  • Drop 6 drops in an empty veggie capsule and ingest to remove heavy metals from your body. 
  • Ingest 3-4 drops to help digestion.
  • Of course, salsa! Salsa! Salsa!

Let's talk about Lime. Lime is an incredible cleansing and detoxing essential oil. 

  • Add 3 drops to warm water in the morning to cleanse your major organs.
  • Rub 3 drops on bottoms of feet 2x a day to relieve season threats. Don't you hate it when you're outside enjoying the summer weather and your eyes start to look like an Ogre? Never. Enough. Itching.  
  • Diffuse 5 drops to keep bugs away and out of your house.
  • Add to shampoo, conditioner, face wash to beautify the skin.
  • Diffuse and rub on bottoms of your feet for increased energy and mood. 

I mean if those aren't good enough reasons to use Cilantro and Lime...I don't know what is! Go enjoy your Lime and Cilantro infused summer, my lovelies!
