Experiencing indigestion?

Experiencing indigestion and abdominal discomfort ?

 

indigestion

Are you experiencing indigestion and abdominal discomfort? Indigestion is a consequence of our busy modern lifestyle. You’re not alone in experiencing this! In our busy modern lifestyles many of us grab a bite to eat on the run. We load up with coffee during the day for energy and relax with a few glasses of wine at night. We know we should eat a combination of raw and cooked foods, and lots of fruits and vegetables, however, the reality is often far from this. We can end up feeling bloated and uncomfortable and experiencing indigestion, sometimes in the form of heartburn and reflux.

What is heartburn? It is a form of indigestion. According to Health Direct “some people experience heartburn regardless of what they eat. Others find they only get it after eating certain foods or meals”. Common triggers for heartburn include:

  • large meals
  • fatty or spicy foods
  • coffee and cola drinks
  • citrus foods
  • alcohol
  • chocolate
  • cigarettes
  • peppermints.

Other things that can increase your risk of heartburn are:

  • being overweight or obese
  • being pregnant
  • taking certain medications (check with your doctor).

A recent study as outlined in the video below by the Seven Network shows that many pharmaceutical drugs have adverse side affects that increase the risk of your death by 25%! Now that’s a large risk to take for indigestion!

 

 

Digestive health is a prime concern for many people—according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH), approximately 60 to 70 million people are affected by digestive issues in the US alone. The supplements doTERRA offers were created to keep the various components of the digestive system functioning at their best. Here’s how to use essential oils to help you naturally so that you don’t reach for those dangerous over the counter pharmaceutical products or go to the doctor for yet another prescription.

How to use essential oils for indigestion and Gastroinestinal health

 

DigestZen® Softgels

When you want to simply take the DigestZen blend to ease queasiness or soothe stomach discomfort after trying new foods, the softgels are a great option because you don’t have to fill your own veggie capsule. At two drops per capsule, you can take one softgel as needed.

Suggested Use:

  • Take after enjoying a meal to promote digestion.
  • When traveling or trying new foods take to soothe occasional stomach discomfort.
  • Take with water or tea to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract.

DigestTab®

This chewable tablet is specifically designed for individuals with sensitive stomachs. Formulated with calcium carbonate, DigestTab works to neutralize and reduce acid. Ginger, Peppermint, Caraway, Coriander, Anise, Tarragon, and Fennel essential oils soothe and support the digestive system, and complete the list of ingredients.

Suggested Use:

  • Use as needed for relief from occasional upset stomach and heartburn.
  • Take one tablet to provide relief from the occasional acid indigestion and can help reduce unwanted belching and bloating.

DigestZen TerraZyme®

Metabolic enzymes are produced by your body and taken from the food you eat. Your body needs plenty of digestive enzymes to digest food and to help cells convert nutrients into energy. However, the processed, cooked, and preservative-laden foods in the modern diet are often enzyme deficient. TerraZyme contains a blend of active whole-food enzymes and supporting cofactors to make up the difference.

Suggested Use:

  • Take one to three capsules with meals. Adjust the amount depending on what you’re eating—if you’re eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, take one. If you’re eating something more highly processed, take three.

GX Assist®

Known as the natural way to cleanse, GX Assist was created with both caprylic acid and essential oils. These ingredients create an unfriendly environment in your digestive tract to potential threats that cause digestive issues.

Suggested Use:

  • On a quarterly basis take one to three softgels with meals. Use for 10 days before starting PB Assist®+. Do not take at the same time as PB Assist+.

PB Assist®+

It’s no secret that probiotics are great for your gut. With them your digestive system, (not to mention your immune system), can function at its best. PB Assist+ is a combination of pre-biotics and probiotics to encourage the growth of good bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. It also can support your metabolism and better absorption of nutrients from food. The capsule has been specifically designed with a time-release, double layered system to protect the probiotics from stomach acid.

Suggested Uses:

  • If using on its own, take one capsule three times daily with meals for 10 days each month.
  • If taking as part of a quarterly cleanse after GX Assist, take three capsules a day for five days, and then one capsule a day for 15 days.
  • When your digestive system has been compromised by digestive stressors, PB Assist is safe to take more frequently or for longer periods of time.

PB Assist® Jr.

This is a probiotic powder for kids, and it is also great for adults that find swallowing pills challenging. It contains 5 billion live cells from six probiotic strains, along with prebiotic FOS. Why give a child probiotics? Consuming probiotics during childhood has been shown to balance their microflora and support long-term well-being. And, just like in the adult version, PB Assist Jr. supports both the digestive and immune systems, as well as metabolism and nutrient absorption.

Suggested Use:

  • Consume one sachet daily directly in mouth, or in cold water, juice, or yogurt. Do not mix with hot water.

Zendocrine® Softgels

Formulated with essential oils, the softgels are designed to support the liver and detoxification of the body’s systems. The body is naturally able to rid itself of unwanted substances; Zendocrine is intended to support this process. Each softgel contains 2 drops of the Zendocrine blend.

Suggested Use:

  • Take one softgel two to three times daily.

Zendocrine® Detoxification Complex

Instead of essential oils, the complex is made up of herbs that traditionally support the liver and detoxification. It affects the body through a different mechanism than the Zendocrine softgels, and you can experience different benefits than the softgels for that reason. We recommend trying both to see which works best for you.

Suggested Use:

  • To support the cleansing organs, take two capsules daily (one in the morning and one in the evening) for an entire month. Repeat every three to four months.

How to use Essential oils to spark romance: your guide to sensuality and creating a mood for romance

If you’ve been wondering how to use essential oils to spark romance, you are in the right place! Essential oils are the “tool” that you have been looking for to spark romance. Forget stuffed bears, long stemmed roses or expensive date nights, essential oils are the easy way to use the power of aroma to create romance.

Even ancient civilisations knew how to use essential oils to spark romance

The power of aroma to awaken the senses and impact your love life is not just a myth, or a legend. There are clues dotted through books and sacred texts and in the drawings of the Egyptians. Cleopatra was famous for her use of essential oils and roses to create lasting memories and associate feelings of love.

How to use essential oils to spark romance

 

How to use essential oils to spark romance:

Essential oils can be used by:

  • giving your partner a loving massage
  • wearing essential oils as a pure-fume   (a pure-fume is a perfume made from non-toxic ingredients)
  • Aromatic dressing (when you anoint your body with essential oils by placing the oils in your body cream and rubbing into your arms and legs before putting your clothes on).
  • in a diffuser in your bedroom to make your bedroom smell amazing and also “set the mood” and tone
  • sprinkle your sheets and pillow (create your own linen spray)

 

Spice essential oils spice up romance

Spices such as cinnamon are used for their ability to “spice things up”. Words and phrases we often use in every day language actually allude to the truth. Spices heat up the body and help stimulate desire. If you look at the synthetic ingredients of commercial perfume you will find that spices are a key fragrance used in cologne for men. Essential oils unlike perfume do not disrupt your endocrine system and are non-toxic.

Spice essential oils include:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cassia
  • Clove
  • Black Pepper (see below)
  • Cardamom
  • Ginger

Are you having less sex because you are too tired after your busy day?

We lead busy lives, and one of the side affects of stress, is reduced sexual desire. It’s not just couples who are dating who are and should be interested in the sensual nature of essential oils. Couples who have been married and had children together, need to learn how to spend time intimately together again. I find aromatherapy to be more discreet and less invasive and potentially embarrassing for a couple than say introducing sex toys or lingerie when a lull in the marriage produces reduced sexual intimacy and a feeling of being “flatmates” rather than lovers.

Often stress leads to a viscous cycle of anxiety in relation to sex. We know we haven’t had sex in a while. We feel bad about this, and maybe our partner is alluding to this via subtle or not so subtle comments in private or in public. The more stressed we feel about this, the more we feel we have to “fit sex in” like something that you would schedule on your calendar. This makes it a chore, and blocks the body’s natural ability to feel aroused. We may even just jump into bed to “get it over with”

(cue scene in the Sex in the City Movie where Miranda says to Steve There are more important things than sex, Let’s just get it over with”…. (we inwardly cringe, but most of us have been there)…

How to use Black Pepper essential oil for sparking romance

How to use essential oils to spark romance

Black pepper is a wonderful essential oil to use to help us take of the masks that society has taught us to wear. We are born free of cares and worries, but as we are “domesticated” into life, we are taught what is wrong and right and how to act, what to dream for and to expect in life. Black pepper allows us to stop and show our true selves. We need not mask our true personality or undesirable characteristics and body flaws. It teaches us that we can be loved and accepted for who we really are.

Black pepper is particularly good for stimulating and arousing the genital areas by increasing blood flow to the region. Please however, use with caution and only when diluted in a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, as it is a spicy oil!

 

How to use essential oils to spark romance on the go: with pure-fume

One of the easiest ways to make yourself feel sexier is through aroma. Everyone knows the allure of perfume for both the anointed and the passerby. When you wear specific essential oils that are known to increase libido and arousal, you will enhance romantic feelings for yourself, and loved ones who can take in the gorgeous aromas that you are wearing.  I find it easiest to use essential oils in a pure-fume in the form of a rollerball. You can carry them in your purse and apply when going out to dinner or a date.

Here are a few of my favourite pure-fumes for romance:

My favourite essential oil pur-fume is the doTERRA Passion Touch. It comes in a handy pre-diluted rollerball so you can simply apply to your neck, pulse points and anywhere else that you desire to be kissed.

 

Salubelle (known as Immortelle in the USA/Canada ) is another essential oil pure-fume that gets great compliments and comments

How to use essential oils to spark romance

 

How to use essential oils to spark romance with a diffuser:

There are so many different combinations of essential oils that you can use in a diffuser in a bedroom, or your lounge room to create an invigorating aroma that stimulates and arouses you both.  This is possible because essential oils are inhaled via your nose, and travel via the mucous membrane up to your Olfactory system, and then into the Limbic system, which is the control centre for emotions in your body. Once your Limbic system interprets the codes found in the aroma, it passes the message to your body via your nervous system. So you literally can teach your body to respond to a set of essential oil aromas by using those oils exclusively for times when you want to instigate romance and sexual and sensual activities.

Rosemary for remembrance

Rosemary for remembrance

remembrance

Rosemary for remembrance: Rosemary is a herb with great symbolism and significance depending on who you are – it is a symbol of the Anzacs, the name of my Aunty and great Aunty, the herb we placed with photos on my Croatian grandfather’s grave that went into the earth with him, a beautiful plant in my mother’ garden and the quintessential herb for Aussie lamb.

It’s aroma means different things to different people, but above all it is an aroma which invokes memories. For me, the reminder of the Anzac long weekend makes me think of my mate Amanda and the sorrow she must feel with all her fallen comrades, and the birthday of an ill friend Julie. It’s also the birthday on the 23rd of my Aunty Joy and my cousin Kim. And then the memory that most years I am able to forget- the memory of my wedding weekend.

Lest we forget how bittersweet life is, that life is for service above self, and that through aroma we can unlock and create memories to behold for the future.

Need a little dating confidence?

Need a little dating confidence?

Dating after divorce is both daunting and exciting. Unless you were born a supermodel we all could probably do with a little dating confidence. For many the prospect of getting naked with someone is overwhelming because they spent the last 5, 10 or 20 years with one person. For women who have given birth, there are new  scars and marks to their body.

If I could offer myself some advice six years ago it would be- you are skinner and sexier than you think, and no one in the heat of the moment is looking at your faults. So stop obsessing about it. I would also remind myself, that other divorcees are also used to being with someone who is changed as a result of childbirth and life, so there is nothing that they haven’t seen before.

Here are a couple of essential oils I have used to help me with body  and dating confidence:

Patchouli is a great grounding and calming essential oil to diffuse. I love to use it when I am feeling a little scatty, and at night with other wood based oils like Frankincense and Cedarwood. It’s wonderful diluted with fractionated coconut oil or your favourite body butter or cream and massaged into those areas you have confidence issues with. You need to look at yourself with rose tinted glasses rather than with a magnifying glass. If you are going to hide under the sheets and turn the lights off, it will be a big turn off, not turn on in a new relationship.  Men and women alike are inspired and turned on by body confidence.

The additional bonus of using Patchouli is that it is an oil which is fabulous for fine lines and wrinkles. I am a huge fan of V necked dresses and tops, and as a result this area of my skin has aged faster from sun exposure. I love to rub in patchouli with fractionated coconut oil into this area of my body.

 

dating confidence

 

Trusting again

Your heart has already been broken, so why should you trust that it won’t be broken again? Well, if you don’t try, you will never find out, and you will miss out on the wonderful experiences and relationships that you could experience. It would be folly to think that the first person you meet is going to be the next Mr or Mrs Right. Who wants that anyway? You want to take your time to figure out what you are looking for in a relationship this time around.

In the meantime, you can use Geranium essential oil, on your heart, to help with trust and to heal the emotional wounds. This is a very sweet smelling essential oil, which I have come to love, and I like to diffuse it and wear it as a pure-fume.

dating-after-divorce

How soon is too soon to start dating after divorce? The answer to this is both simple and complex. It is also highly individual. Before you start dating, you must process your emotions surrounding the dissolution of your previous relationship. Or to put it simply, don’t just fuck someone for revenge.
dating-after-divorce

Only you can tell when the time is right, and like most of us, you will think you are ready, when you are not. The best thing you can do is take some time to be alone, to grieve, to rebuild your strength and courage and self identity and to enjoy being by yourself. In short, learn to love yourself first, before you date again.

dating-after-divorce

 

If you run into the arms of another lover you risk making the same mistakes. You also risk starting a relationship based on that person’s ability to “fix” you.

There are times when we are propelled into dating, to help with a physical urge to feel wanted and needed, and to fill a sexual hole. It’s understandable, but it’s also empty sex. Devoid of love and meaning.

The most important thing is to be kind to yourself.  You will stuff up, but date by date, you will learn a little more about yourself, about the qualities that you do and don’t want this time, and you will learn what you heart can bear, and what it desires.

I started dating about a year after my divorce. Or should I say tried to date. It was not successful, as I was hurt and angry and propelled this onto prospective dates. This inevitably resulted in some now funny, dating disasters. I needed three years alone to face the dating world again.

How has your dating experience been post separation and divorce?

manuka essential oil

Manuka Essential Oil

Manuka Essential Oil

Everyone knows about the healing powers of Manuka honey right? So what’s the fuss about Manuka Essential Oil? Let me put it this way. The essential oil takes the healing properties of the Manuka plant and provides it directly to you. A bee is involved in first consuming the nectar of the Manuka plant (Leptosperum scoparium), then creating honey, then the beekeeper has to get the honey from the hive, then you get to eat it, or put it on your wound, covered with a dressing. Both are intricate and time consuming but distilling the actual essence from the plant is the most direct, and potent way to get the healing benefits of the plant.

manuka essential oil

Revered by the Maori people for its many restorative properties, Manuka has been used for centuries in New Zealand for a variety of traditional health applications, but most famously for it’s ability to assist with wound dressing and healing. To listen to an interview about how Manuka honey (not the essential oil) is being used by a research team to replace antibiotics in hospitals, due to it’s antibacterial properties, listen here. Given essential oils are 30 to 50 times more potent, can you imagine the impact that the oil would have over the honey (not to mention a lot less stickier!!)

According to some sources, the honey makes bacteria less resistant to antibiotics, which is a real lifesaver when talking about Golden Staph and other issues in our hospital system. This article is from the Journal of Microbiology.

The difference between Manuka Essential Oil and Manuka Honey

  • Manuka Essential oil is more potent than Manuka Honey
  • It is not sticky!
  • More convenient and portable in a 5ml bottle than carrying around a jar of honey!
  • It can be used in a diffuser for emotional and aromatic benefits (assists with coughing)

How to use Manuka Essential Oil:

dōTERRA’s New Zealand Manuka essential oil™ is a pure steam distillation of the potent aromatic compounds found in the flowers, leaves and stems of the Manuka tree. Manuka essential oil has a rich, spicy, herbaceous fragrance that can relieve feelings of stress and promote feelings of relaxation. Use the essential oil to ground and centre energies while shielding yourself in preparation for deep meditation. Manuka essential oil can also be diffused aromatically to help cleanse and freshen the air. Applied topically, it promotes the appearance of smooth, healthy looking skin.

how to deal with anger after divorce

How to deal with anger after divorce

How to deal with anger after divorce.

how to deal with anger after divorce

Are you wondering how to deal with anger after divorce? You’re not alone.

I think everyone who has gone through divorce experiences anger at some point in their life. It’s an emotion I am very familiar with.

This morning I lost my temper after receiving a text message from my ex husband. The circumstances are not what is important, however, what surprised me, was that after 6 years, I am still emotionally triggered by certain things that he does. And today, was a storm in a tea-cup. I was ready with the blame and the frustration and the anger, and for once, it was not water off a duck’s back. That’s life isn’t it? Feelings creep up on you, and unresolved they explode, if you are not mindful of them.

Often in the middle of a disturbing emotion, we lose sense of perspective and objectivity. Anger is a message that one of our fundamental values has been compromised, and it insults and irritates us. The extent to which it does, sometimes correlates to the extent of our anger. Other times, it’s a lack of sleep, distraction and misinterpretation, and those stories we have in our head.  You know the ones that go like this…

 

I can’t believe he said that!

What does he think I am?

How selfish!

expletive expletive

It’s his son for xxx sake.

What a stingy bastard.

 

Now the above may or may not be true.

It is possible that what was said, was simply interpreted in your mind according to your perspective, and isn’t what they meant at all.

A good test is to explain what was said to an impartial person.  If they say, “No, I don’t think they meant that” then it is highly likely that you overreacted. Don’t shame yourself over it. Just learn from the experience.

There is nothing wrong with anger as an emotion, and repressing it serves no purpose other than to create mental and physical disharmony. However, we need to find ways to become mindful of our anger as it rises, so that we can find ways to express it and then move forward.

For me, if I can be mindful enough to access my essential oils, I can calm down fast enough to change my perspective, get a little space and not overreact.

How to deal with anger after divorce using essential oils:

Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants.  Being an all natural substance, they are much kinder to your body and mind that diffusing anger with food, alcohol, video games, revenge sex, physical violence or any other form of distraction.  Essential oils help promote emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Each different essential oil has different emotional components which are interpreted by the amygdala which is stimulated by fragrance.

When we inhale essential oils, we access our limbic system via our olfactory system (your nose).  The limbic system is the control centre for emotions in our body. So when we inhale essential oils, they travel up the nasal passage via the mucous membranes and reach the limbic system. There they are interpreted and then a message is sent through your nervous system to your body. So if we understand which essential oils create the varying emotional responses, then we can reach for the correct essential oil, or combination of essential oils, at the right time.

What is a diffuser and how will it help me deal with my anger after divorce?

A diffuser is a simple device that you plug into electricity that contains water. It sends out cool mist which contains the aroma molecules of the essential oils you have placed in with the water. You generally need only 4-6 drops of essential oil each time you use the diffuser. Diffusers vary by brand and functionality, however, I like the Petal diffuser because it has 3 timer settings, a night light and it turns off automatically when the diffuser runs out of water. A diffuser of this size generally sends out enough aroma for one standard room.

Don’t be fooled, extra water storage capacity does NOT mean that it will service a bigger room. You need a specialised diffuser which has controls to change the intensity of the aroma.

What essential oils should I use to help with my anger after divorce?

Cardamom essential oil is the oil of objectivity. It is perfect if you get hot headed as a result of frustration and ager with other people. It helps bring mental clarity and balance and objectivity. It also assists with the “digestion” of intense emotions by redirecting the energy to the solar plexus, the centre of responsibility. Cardamom essential oil will help you stop blaming others and take personal ownership and responsibility for your feelings, resulting in you feeling calmer and more peaceful and in control.

Topical application of essential oils to help with anger after divorce:

The second way to diminish feelings of anger, that is more portable than lugging a diffuser around with you, is topically. What this means is applying the essential oils to your skin, on your pulse points. Now the rule of thumb is always to dilute the essential oil in a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut. 1 drop per teaspoon of coconut oil. However, this is not always practical, so I always buy the essential oils that I want to keep in my bag, in a rollerball, that way they are already pre-diluted. Peace of mind.

Here’s an example of two essential oils that are already in a rollerball, that help with calming the emotions:

 

how to deal with anger after divorce

Why is it important for me to deal with my anger after divorce? Isn’t it just a “stage” I am going through that is justified?

It is important to deal with your anger as it arises. Why? Becuase your thoughts are actually physical, they become chemicals inside our bodies once we think them.

“The instance a thought occurs, you hypothalamus – ‘the control centre’ at the base of the brain- turns that thought into hundreds of neuropeptides, each associated with the dominant emotion of the corresponding thought. Those neuropeptides – your thoughts- are actual molecules being transmitted through your mind and body”…..”The body’s cells develop more and more specialised receptors for the neuropeptides to which they are most exposed. In fact, cells will even begin to crave these neuropeptides and ask the hypothalamus to produce them. Over time your cells wind up supporting a self-fulfilling emotional prophecy all brought about by the power of thought.”

Source: Living Healthy & Happily Ever After by Rebecca Linder Hints and Dr. Susan Lawton.

So, in short, if you don’t tend to your anger and learn to watch it rise, and diffuse it gently then you will become increasingly angry as a default emotional response.

Why not let essential oils be the tool that helps you?
