I am a retired medical doctor in NC. I am no longer managing disease as I was trained to do back in the 1970’s. After nearly three decades of watching patients grow sicker and poorer as their medication lists grew longer and longer, I discovered the joy of using natural substances to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Now I use nutrition, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and—especially— essential oils to promote wellness. I feel so fortunate to have found my purpose in life and to finally be able to help people experience vibrant wellness and the abundance that comes with living in harmony with nature.
Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.
Lemon Vitality’s versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes. Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. I’m available for any essential oil question – Get in touch!
Did you know that in 2005 there were nearly 300 chemicals detected in the umbilical cord blood of a large sampling of newborns? Most of these didn’t even exist when I was born in 1951, and very few of them have been vetted by the FDA or EPA. At least 15 of them are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors!
Most baby care products contain toxic chemicals and hormone disruptors that are readily absorbed through the skin.
Since the skin is the largest absorptive surface in the body, doesn’t it make sense to be extremely cautious about what lotions and soaps we use on our children?
Instead of commercial baby lotion I recommend using organic extra virgin coconut oil with pure therapeutic grade essential oils added for fragrance. It is both safe and gentle.
Rather than commercial baby wash products, I suggest using liquid castile soap scented with a couple of drops of lavender or frankincense essential oil.
Young Living’s Gentle Baby essential oil blend is especially soothing to babies with dry, chapped skin and diaper rash–and it smells wonderful!
Although it is impossible to eliminate every toxic exposure our babies will experience,it is possible to make small changes in what we apply to baby’s skin that can have enormous long term benefits.
What do you think about advertisements for drugs on TV and in print?
Well, as a physician for nearly 40 years, I will tell you what I think.
I think they are dangerous.
Every time I hear the admonition to the patient to “tell your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease” or, “make sure you tell your doctor what other medications you are taking”, I cringe.
Every prescription drug works by blocking a critical enzyme system or interfering with a normal body function.
To encourage consumers to diagnose and recommend treatment for their symptoms is irresponsible at best. At worst it can be fatal.
Americans are the most overdrugged and unhealthy people in the first world.
One of my favorite things to do is help people support their wellness with essential oils
