Use All Natural Remedies and Essential Oils to Treat Seizures in People and Pets

Make sure that you remove products that contain artificial ingredients, chemicals and toxins from your life. These are ingredients that aren't safe to eat and usually you don't recognize or can pronounce. If in doubt, Google what each ingredient is and you'll know if it's a real food ingredient or not. Pitch foods and any product that isn't all nature, this includes that you use for your family and your pet(s). This is because living things weren't made to deal with anything artificial. The body's systems views toxins and chemicals as poison because they actually are. The use of anything less than organic and all natural will increase the risk of seizures, their intensity and frequency. There is a natural remedy for just about everything.

The pancreatic enzymes break down food so that nutrients can be absorbed by your body. Another huge job for the pancreas is producing insulin. Insulin in needed to reduce blood sugar levels and allows your body to store food energy for later use.

Immune Boosting Natural Remedies

We are continually exposed to organisms that are inhaled, swallowed or inhabit our skin and mucous membranes. Whether or not these organisms lead to disease is decided by the integrity of our body’s defense mechanisms, or immune system. When our immune system is working properly, we don’t even notice it. But when we have an under- or over-active immune system, we are at a greater risk of developing infections and other health conditions.

If you are wondering how to boost your immune system, look no further — these 10 antimicrobial, immune-stimulating and antiviral supplements and essential oils can be used at home to improve your health.

As you discover more about the incredible healing properties of pure essential oils, you will begin to realize just how powerful and beneficial they can be — not just for your physicality, but also your mental and emotional well-being.

With the cold winter months officially upon us and quite possibly a few viruses floating around, here are five detoxifying essential oils to help boost your immunity:

1. Lemon

The essential oil derived from a lemon has incredible detoxifying effects on the body. Add a little to your glass of water each morning to help cleanse and clear out the blood, and rid the body of toxic buildup.

Lemon can also be used as a household cleaner — just mix 10 drops of oil with a cup or two of water in a glass spray bottle, and you've got yourself an all natural completely chemical free glass, wood and surface cleaner. It also of course smells refreshing and will help to eliminate stinky odors.

2. Germ Killer

This blend is an absolute staple in my home and yoga studio. It smells like Christmas in a bottle — with a blend of cloves, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary oils. I add a drop of this oil to my tea regularly, to help ward off any potential signs of a cold — though I haven't been sick in quite a while!

Germ Killer oil can also be used as a cleaner — it's antibacterial properties make for an amazing spray for dirty surfaces like public bathrooms. And yes, it also aids in supporting the immune system — a real cold and flu season power house!

Keep a 3oz spray bottle with thieves, organic witch hazel and distilled water in my purse at all times, to spray on my face as a refresher, on a toilet seat if I'm somewhere questionable.

3. Peppermint

This is one of the most versatile oils in the world. It can be used topically to help with headaches, indigestion and even to increase mental alertness. Of course peppermint also works well as a tea and for baking. As far as detoxifying your life, peppermint may help reduce cravings and reduce your interest in sugary foods.

4. Lavender

Lavender can help support better sleep, which in turn will allow your body to heal and restore. It is wonderful for women as it may support with PMS symptoms and has a wonderful calming effect on the body and mind.

Diffusing the oil in your bedroom or putting a little on your feet will help support you with an overall sense of well-being.

 

Foods, herbs, and supplements that kill cancer - safer and more effective than drugs

 A diet consisting of a variety of raw fresh vegetables is the best prevention and also a potential cure for cancer, depending on how far the cancer has progressed and how easily the body can digest and properly assimilate nutrition. Introducing new fruits and vegetables can also provide a base to add essential oils like basil, rosemary, cinnamon and more for added health benefits

Berries, grapes, broccoli, leafy greens, sprouts, avocados, red and yellow peppers, red cabbage, dandelion, beets, and many more foods have been proven in numerous scientific studies to not only prevent, but to also destroy, cancer cells. If we did research on every single piece of produce we eat, we'd probably find that most of them, if not all of them, prevent and fight cancer in some way or another.

This is what the modern diet is missing, fresh raw produce. Early humans ate pounds of it a day, all day, every day. Whether you have cancer now, or are just trying to prevent it, cut out the refined and processed foods, and eat more produce.

Herbs and Spices

Garlic, oregano, cloves, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and ginger have been shown in multiple studies to fight cancer. Spice up your meals, especially those big salads. Fresh raw produce works synergistically with herbs and spices. In other words, the combination of garlic, oregano, and a bunch of vegetables is more powerful than garlic and/or oregano alone.

Make big salads with lots of vegetables and add in fresh herbs and spices.Speaking of combinations, turmeric and black pepper make for a powerful cancer-killing duo. Most of you have heard of the incredible benefits of turmeric and it's cancer-killing properties.

 

 

Turmeric is known to actually outperform many pharmaceutical drugs for various diseases. The only problem with turmeric is that the beneficial component to which all the hoopla is about, curcumin, is not easily absorbed by the body. Black pepper contains piperine, a chemical with powerful antioxidant properties. Pepper and turmeric together allow the body to absorb more turmeric. Reports range from a 200% increase to over 2,000%!

It's no coincidence that two of the main ingredients in curry powder are black pepper and turmeric. Come to think of it, ginger and cinnamon, two other powerhouse herbs known to fight cancer, are also almost always found in curry spice blends as well. It's no wonder...

Turmeric has been researched in dozens of studies, many investigating its painkilling effects in relation to inflammatory conditions. One study conducted by Nirmala Medical Centre in India investigated the effects of turmeric supplements given to rheumatoid arthritis patients compared to use of conventional arthritis drugs (diclofenac sodium) or a combination of both together. The curcumin group showed the highest percentage of improvements overall, significantly better than the patients in the diclofenac sodium groups, and with practically no negative side effects.

Use Frankincense Essential Oil

Known as Indian frankincense, this potent supplement helps reduce inflammation. Boswellia or frankincense can be found in several concentrated forms, including a therapeutic-grade oil that can be massaged directly into the skin over painful areas.  Frankincense extract is so powerful that today it’s considered comparable to NSAID pain relievers.

Frankincense oil is capable of reducing arthritis pain through several mechanisms: supporting overall immune function, interfering with cytokine production that raises inflammation, delaying reactions to sensitivities, helping regulate lymphocytes (white blood cells) and T-cells interactions, and reducing autoimmune effects related to immunoglobulin G antibodies. 

Combine several drops of pure frankincense oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil, and apply to the painful joint area several times daily. Other beneficial essential oils for arthritis that can be used in similar ways include myrrh, turmeric, ginger, orange, peppermint and lavender oils.

Essential oils for Neuralgia and Neuropathy

Neuralgia or the feeling of recurrent pain along a nerve pathway, without any nerve damage or inflammation can be improved by massaging with essential oils from plants. Organic oils that come from whole plant parts are ingestible and therapeutic grade. They help naturally support body systems. 

Essential oils can help both neuralgia related problems as well as neuropathy which is damage to peripheral nerves (other than spinal or those in the brain).  

Some other factors that can cause neuralgia include: Diabetes, alcoholism, Vitamin B12 deficiency, tumors, too many pain killers, exposure and absorption of chemicals, metals and/or pesticides.

Essential oils make an ideal remedy as they are inexpensive and natural with overall excellent results. Essential oils have many purposes and their use helps balance hormones and toxins within the body and home.

Natural and holistic alternatives give the body what it needs to get back to balance and heal itself. Rather than just addressing symptoms, you address the root cause of the problem and have a better chance of not having recurring symptoms. You don’t just take a pill, feel better and then the problem starts all over again.
