Why Are You So Hesitant About Aromatherapy?

Why Are You So Hesitant about aromatherapy, natural medicine, side effects of toxic pills,

Why are you so hesitant about aromatherapy? Do you think it doesn’t work or it’s not for you? Would you rather use chemicals than try something that comes out of the earth?

Questions, questions, questions. Yes I know. Oh – there’s one more question. Did you know that your modern medicine began from the plant-based wisdom known as aromatherapy?

Yep. It’s true. The Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research has an interesting article about this:

It has been well documented that natural products played critical roles in modern drug development, especially for antibacterial and antitumor agents. Even though popularity of the synthetic products increased due to its production cost, time effectiveness, easy quality control, stringent regulation and quick effects, but their safety and efficacy was always remained questionable, resulting in the dependence on the natural products by more than 80% of the total population in the developing world, because of its time tested safety and efficacy. A huge number of natural product-derived compounds in various stages of clinical development highlighted the existing viability and significance of the use of natural products as sources of new drug candidates.

So, why are you so hesitant about turning to aromatherapy – which is plant-based medicine – when you have a health concern?

It’s a proven fact there there are rarely any negative side effects of using pure essential oils. If you’re sensitive to the plant family, yes, there could be some reaction. But every single commercial that you see on TV hawking toxic drugs ALWAYS have nasty side effects such as stomach tears, diarrhea, dizziness, stroke, heart attack, nausea, internal bleeding, skin rashes, shortness of breath, headaches and possibly even DEATH.

Um…I don’t know about you, but that last side effect is a doozy.

To make matters worse, here’s what Drugs.com says about the nasty side effects of toxic medicine:

Side effects may also lead to non-compliance with prescribed treatment. When side effects of a drug or medication are severe, the dosage may be adjusted or a second medication may be prescribed.

A SECOND medication may be prescribed to offset the first one? How sick and twisted is that? What if you have nasty side effects from the second medication? Are you going to take a THIRD toxic pill?

GAH!!!!!

Why Are You so Hesitant About Aromatherapy?

What are you afraid of? 

Your body KNOWS the difference between synthetic and plant-based. Your liver has to filter everything you put in or on your body.

Y’all, I’m a trained, experienced certified aromatherapist. I went through 76 hours of Anatomy and Physiology to learn how pure essential oils work with your body and the possible reactions you might have.

I get skeptical questions about aromatherapy all the time and yet I’m able to answer those questions. Some folks roll their eyes to hard I swear their eyeballs are coming out their ears. Yes, I get this even in my own family.

And yet you take toxic prescription pills without question. And when you have nasty side effects from those toxic pills, you can’t figure out why you feel like shit warmed over or you’re simply not connecting the dots.

Listen, I’m not here to bash allopathic doctors. They’re doing the best they can to help you while being hogtied by insurance companies and big pharma. And big pharma knows if you’re healthy, they don’t make money.

YOU are their cash cow.

What I am saying is that aromatherapy is REAL. And if you’re willing to take a toxic pill every day that’s actually making you feel worse, than why not use aromatherapy everyday to help you feel better?

We’ve become brainwashed into thinking that a magic pill from the doctor will fix whatever ails us and we go on our merry way.

Nope.

I challenge you to think twice before you swallow yet another toxic pill or use another toxic cream on your skin. I challenge you to try aromatherapy and see what happens. Even if you don’t come to Scented Balance, please give aromatherapy a try.

Your liver will thank you!

Blessings,

5 Ways Drinking Lemon Water Improves Your Health and Life

5 ways drinking lemon water improves your life and health

Do you feel good? Are you healthy? If not, or you want a simple way to help yourself get healthier and feel better, here’s 5 ways drinking lemon water improves your health and life. 

For Reals!

What’s Up With Lemons?

Why are lemons (and all citrus fruits, really) so good for you? That little yellow bombshell is loaded with stuff your body loves:

    • vitamin C
    • B-complex vitamins
    • calcium
    • iron
    • magnesium
    • potassium
    • fiber

Lemons have more potassium than grapes or apples. Vitamin C, potassium and magnesium are all critically important for approximately 300 bodily functions. And fresh lemon juice taste pretty good, so that’s a plus!

It’s easier for your body to absorb and process the vitamins and minerals it needs from food and beverages than it is from pills. Pills don’t always break down in your intestines, so you may not be getting any nutrients from them at all.

5 Ways Drinking Lemon Water Improves Your Health and Life

Here’s just a few of the benefits of drinking lemon water:

1. Your Liver Will LOVE You!

When I studied anatomy and physiology for aromatherapy school, I found out a whole lot of things I didn’t know and the one that stuck with me the most is how good lemon is at protecting your liver.

YO – you can’t drink yourself silly just because you’re imbibing lemon, okay? 

EVERY MORNING, squeeze half of a fresh lemon into either warm or room temperature water (about 6 to 8 ounces) and drink it down. Woo hoo – you just made friends with your liver!

2. Flushes Out Toxins in your system

This goes along with reason number 1 above, and makes you feel better because you’re getting rid of all the toxins that would otherwise be stored in your liver and other organs. Most of us have not connected the dots when we feel tired and draggy, but this is one culprit.

According to BodyEcology.com the toxins lodge in your cells, soft tissues, and muscles, and overwhelm your entire immune system and that’s why you feel sluggish.

See what’s going on?

3. Reduces Inflammation

This is huge y’all! Inflammation is the culprit behind so much disease and left unchecked, it causes real damage. You may not be aware of it right now, but it wreaks havoc on your system. Go back to reason number 1 and drink that lemon water every day!

4. Boosts Your Immune System

The d-Limonene in lemons is known to activate white blood cells which is what makes up your immune system. (Have you had your lemon water yet today?)

It’s full of vitamin C which is like having jumper cables for your immune system. That’s why you take more vitamin C when you feel a cold coming on

5. It Reduces Anxiety and Depression

Lemon is the most universally loved scent and it’s excellent for those who live with anxiety and depression as it has a calming effect on your nervous system.

Bonus Reasons Why Lemon Water Will Change Your Life fresh lemon juice, drink lemon water

I couldn’t resist – here’s even more reasons to drink lemon water every day!

    • Helps fight hunger cravings (hello weight loss!)
    • Assists with fighting viral infections
    • May help manage blood sugar levels
    • Excellent for avoiding kidney stones

HERE’S THE BIG CAVEAT TO ALL THIS WONDERFUL NEWS: Lemon is acidic until it hits your intestines, so it will take rust off a bumper (and the enamel right off your teeth). That means you must DILUTE THE FRESH LEMON IN WATER. Got it?

Have your drank your lemon water yet?

Listen, nobody gets out alive in this life and I’m not saying that drinking lemon water makes you perfectly healthy and you’ll live forever. What it does help you with is keeping your system cleaner and happier and that means m-a-a-a-y-b-e you’ll stay healthier longer.

IT’S HALF OF A LEMON AND SOME WATER – YOU CAN DO THIS!
