ALLERGIES / SINUS / ASTHMA
My Personal Story~ April Travis
I used to have all kinds of allergies and asthma and was on everything from Seldane, Sudafed, steroid inhalers that caused heart palpitations, dry eyes and mouth and even on a breathing machine (nebulizer) at one point. Now, with the help of these oils, my allergies are almost non-existent and I am continuing to work on it.
If you have never heard of Essential Oils here is a short explanation of what they are. Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from various parts of plants, including seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers and fruit. They are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs.
The essential oils of the plant and the human blood share several common properties: They fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration. Working as the chemical defense mechanism of the plant, essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. The molecules of essential oils are also relatively small, giving them the ability to easily penetrate the cells. When topically applied to the feet or elsewhere, essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.
Young Living is the firmly established leader in the Essential Oils Industry. It is the only company of it's kind that grows from seed, harvests in greenhouses, distills and packages to make sure that there are no pesticides or chemicals of any kind in the product so you are getting Grade A Pure Organic Essential Oils. If you look at other oils in health food stores, they are only perfume quality and not Therapeutic (medicine)...Tip: They must be Afnor / Iso approved oils)
Here's what I did: (NOTE: THIS HAS SAVED ME THOUSANDS OF $$ ON ALLERGY MEDICATIONS, ALLERGY SHOTS & IN THE PAST, MISSED TIME FROM WORK. NEEDLESS TO SAY, NO MORE SIDE EFFECTS FROM THOSE HORRIBLE DRUGS AND OVER THE COUNTER MEDS!)
Got a Young Living diffuser and diffused "Purification Oil" into a room with the door closed for 20 minutes a day while you are relaxing in the room. This is for the chronic cough. Any molds and allergy causing bacteria in the air cannot live in the presence of this oil.
Got "R. C." Oil and put 2-3 drops in my hands. Rub them together, cup over nose and inhale 3 times deep. Also put 2 drops on chest and throat. This is a blend of (4) different kinds of eucalyptus and other oils. This is incredible for breaking up mucus, in the head, the lungs and anywhere else it builds up. This is the one that stops me from wheezing and coughing and lets me breathe so much better.
You can also get "Peppermint". If you ever get stopped up and can't breathe thru your nose, you'll love this one. My husband puts 1 drop on his tongue and in then inhales it in. Then with the oil still on his fingers he rubs a little on the end of his nostrils and inhales again. He can breathe in 1 second after putting it on.
One more oil you should know about is "Lavender". Not only is it called Natures antihistamine, but it great for depression. It lifts me up in 3 seconds...When my nose won't stop dripping, it drys me up right away.
Something I really realized while yesterday driving home. I was able to roll my windows down while on the road and smell the wonderful smell of fresh cut grass. Something I was never able to do all my life with allergies. If I did this in the past, I'd sneeze probably 20 times in a row and then be a wreck for several hours.
Since using Young Living Products: cleansing, oiling, supplementing and eating a good diet over the last 4 years, something worked! I can honestly say I AM ALLERGY FREE...and in Texas, where there are trees, molds, dust, grasses, hay, etc.!!! I would have never believed it!
I try to eat as healthy as I can - no sugar, no white flour, no dairy, organic vegetables, hormone free chicken, little meat, no coffee or pop, no white bread, no processed foods, and also no chemicals in the household products or personal care products. I believe this has all helped.
Recently, 5/2002, Ive begun ingesting Eucalyptus Radiata and R. C. blend before bed and for the first time in my life, I am able to sleep with a cat on my bed and still breathe well; no wheezing or sneezing. WHAT A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought Id never be able to have furry pets.
At this point in time, my Young Living monthly check pays for all of both Marks and my products, and we use everything from toothpaste to the RainSpa Shower head. We are saving $$$ on our grocery bills and medical bills by substituting healthy from Young Living for chemical laden items found at the grocery store; and it gets delivered to our door. What a wonderful blessing this has been for us!
UPDATE, 2/2003: We have now added a puppy to our family.
Since all allergies happen because of poor digestion and a weak immune system, I started by working on those body systems. Products I use for allergies, sinus & asthma:
Cleansing Trio Kit
Sulfurzyme Powder (a must have) NOTE: Also available in capsule form.
R.C. Oil Blend
Purification Oil Blend
