Lyme Disease case study describing how essential oils are used
Eating legumes at least three times a week and brown rice at least once a week was linked to a reduced risk of colon polyps by 33 percent and 40 percent respectively, according to Loma Linda University research, recently published in Nutrition and Cancer. High consumption of cooked green vegetables and dried fruit was also associated with greater protection. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States and the third most common cancer in both men and women, according to the American Cancer Society. Results also show that consuming cooked green vegetables once a day or more, as compared to less than five times a week, was associated with a 24 percent reduction in the risk of rectal/colon polyps. Consuming dried fruit three times a week or more, versus less than once a week, was associated with a 26 percent reduced risk.

“A recent presentation at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) brought to light studies that highlight berries’ ability to switch on a natural ‘housekeeper’ mechanism in the brain. Shibu Poulose, PhD, who is with the US Department of Agriculture--Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston, gave the presentation, stating that this new research was built on previous studies that suggested that a factor in aging is a constant decline in the body’s ability to protect itself against inflammation and oxidative damage. ‘The good news is that natural compounds called polyphenolics found in fruits, vegetables, and nuts have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect that may protect against age-associated decline,’ Poulose said. One of the experiments proving berries’ effectiveness involved using cultures of mouse brain cells. Poulose and other researchers found that extracts of berries inhibited the action of a protein that shuts down the autophagy process. ‘Our research suggests that the polyphenolics in berries have a rescuing effect. They seem to restore the normal housekeeping function. These findings are the first to show these effects of berries,’ Poulose said.”

There’s an old saying that goes, ‘Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.’ Well, it turns out that if said man eats said fish—especially if it’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids—he may avoid joining the ranks of the more than 36 million Americans with hearing loss. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, adults over the age of 50 who ate omega-3-rich fish at least twice a week were 42 percent less likely to develop hearing loss than their counterparts who consumed less than one serving of fish weekly. Even if you aren’t worried about your hearing, the essential fatty acids found in fish boast a variety of health benefits such as cardiovascular protection and improvements in cognitive function and mood. Salmon, tuna, sardines, and other oily fish are excellent sources of omega-3s, but if you really want to cover your bases, take a high-quality fish oil supplement every day as well.”

New studies are showing that water is more important to humans than previously taught to medical students. Researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center have shown that ordinary water has some unexpected physiological effects. It increases the activity of the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) nervous system, which raises alertness, blood pressure, and energy expenditure. Subsequently the American Red Cross found that drinking 16 ounces of water before blood donation reduced the fainting response by 20 percent. The June issue of the journal Hypertension reported on findings that water dilutes the plasma in the blood vessels leading away from the duodenum and this short-lived reduction in salt concentration (hypo-osmolality) is responsible for water's blood pressure-raising (pressor) effect. They implicated a protein called Trpv4 in the mechanism. Mice lacking the Trpv4 gene did not have a pressor response to water. Since water raises sympathetic nervous system activity and consequently energy expenditure, it can help promote weight loss.

At the age of 39, I still battled with some skin issues. I used Thieves®, peppermint, lemon, and frankincense essential oils the most, either by inhaling from the bottle; applying topically to my wrists, feet, and back of neck; or adding a drop or two to whatever I was drinking. To my surprise, my complexion dramatically improved within a month! Young Living is amazing!
