➑️How Your Body Removes Toxins Naturally
By Jodi Barnett.
🌿(I have listed the support options that YL offers along the way! This post is long but sooo worth your time!!)
Lymphatics: According to Steven H. Horne, RH (AHG) ” your lymph system is like a tissue cleansing river. All the bodies’ cells are bathed in lymphatic fluid, which constitutes the internal environment of the body. Fresh, clean, nutrient laden lymphatic fluid enters the tissues from the bloodstream thru blood capillaries. Then your cells absorb oxygen & nutrients from the fluid & secrete waste back into it.
Some of this lymph fluid is drawn back into the blood carrying carbon dioxide, acid & other waste products to be filtered out by the lungs & kidneys. The rest is drawn into lymphatic capillaries where it is taken to lymph nodes that act like tiny sewage treatment plants. There white blood cells gobble up debris while other mechanisms purify the lymph. The lymph ducts then empty into the circulatory system at the base of the neck near the thyroid gland, where iodine from that gland can further treat this fluid to purify it. Keeping the lymph moving is essential to keeping the tissues clean, must be considered in any cleansing program. Beyond the lymph there are 4 main organs that work together to disarm toxins & eliminate harmful waste products. (Support the Lymph system with Cypress, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Orange, Rosemary, Lemongrass + Citrus Fresh and water intake is vital).
The 1st channel of elimination that slows down is the “colon” In his book “food is your Best Medicine, Dr. Henry G. Bieler (https://amzn.to/36b0Ctt #ad) talks about how toxins in your colon eventually produce symptoms of disease in other parts of your body, He calls the lining of the digestive tract your 1st line of immune defense. The mucous membranes that line your intestines are not only designed to absorb nutrients, but also reject toxic stuff and waste. They are like a selective filter. He also suggests that when these membranes are overloaded with toxic material, they become irritated & inflamed. No longer able to process & absorb nutrients correctly. Giving rise to colitis and other inflammatory bowel disorders, including Crohn’s disease, celiac disease and ulcerative colitis. All of these involve a breakdown of the intestinal mucosa due to inflammatory processes. Inflammation & swelling in your intestines also lead to increased absorption of toxic materials into the blood & lymph a condition called leaky gut syndrome; this then creates a cascade of negative reactions that adversely affect every system in the body. (Inflammation is calmed with Copaiba, the colon is cleansed with Comfortone + ICP)
According to Steven H Horne RH (AGH), the liver is the back up system to the intestines. All of the blood coming out of your intestinal tract passes thru the liver before being carried to other parts of the body. Just as your intestines are the primary external organ of elimination (meaning the primary way toxins are pushed out of the body); the liver is the most important internal organ of detoxification. It’s primary job is to neutralize bad guys that get into your system. (Support the liver with JuvaTone, JuvaFlex and JuvaPower. The JuvaPower actually supports both the colon + liver.)
So when the 1st line of defense (intestines) have been compromised, the liver is the backup quarter back to take the job and run with it. It harbors hundreds of enzyme systems that break down the bad guys and is able to process the needed nutrients. The lifestyle many of us lead really makes the job of the liver a real tough one!
You know when your liver is really struggling it will give birth to common symptoms:
frequent headaches,
skin problems (like eczema, and acne)
weight gain,
cholesterol issues,
thyroid problems,
Ladies: the dreaded PMS and hard menopausal symptoms
So moving on the 3rd line of defense according to Steven H. Horne, would be the kidneys. So when the intestinal, and liver miss or slow down on the job, the kidneys now get the excess load of trash delivered to them for disposal. So when the urinary passages are overwhelmed with irritants, they also become inflamed; this can cause burning when urination takes place, irritable bladder (can’t hold it), frequent kidney & bladder infections. Skin issues, swollen lymph nodes, retaining fluid (swelling), and reproductive problems. (K+B is our top kidney supplement and Juniper is an excellent kidney support oil. Lemon, Grapefruit, Geranium and DiGize are also recommended in the Desk Reference.)
Ladies if your monthly cycles give you grief, it could be because you have over worked kidneys, over burdened liver, and leaky gut issues…
Many of my clients are very acidic in their pH nature, which is one of the key waste issues the kidney’s must deal with. So when they are weak, and overworked with needing to filter other toxins because defense systems #`1 and #2 are overburdened, they cannot handle the higher acidic load so the body then begins to take from body reserves magnesium and potassium which it robs from bones and muscles (can we say muscle cramps usually middle of the night, and osteoporosis) to put out the systemic fire. (Neutralize the body and bring your pH into balance with ALKALIME.)
This increases the muscle tension, headaches, back pain, leg pain, arthritis. Then factor in kidney stones (which are very popular these days not to mention painful) because the body is purging calcium to reduce acid build up in the body it can add to calcification of tissues.
Next: you need to love the SKIN your in!
Your largest elimination organ is the “Skin”. It is the last ditch effort for elimination processes. It offers assistance in a couple of ways:
You sweat, when we sweat if there are too many water soluble bad guys in the blood the body can wash them out thru the skin when we sweat. Many times this happens when we produce a fever to force the sweat glands to open up and increase elimination thru the skin. Sometimes I encourage clients to create a false fever with epsom salt/ginger baths, and encourage using Far infrared saunas. If your kidneys show signs of weakness this helps a great deal to take some of the overload off of them.
The oil in the skin which keeps our skin soft, this is produced thru oil ducts and can be used as another elimination method for toxins that are fat soluble. Normally the liver processes these and turns them into water solubles and the kidneys flush them out. So if your liver is congested the body will call upon the skin to do the duty. So acne, blackheads, pimples, boils usually appear when toxins have been forced from the liver/kidney’s towards next elimination channel (the largest) the skin.. Fat soluble toxins that are trapped in the fatty layer under the skin can make you itch and produce a rash.
So when something such as that appears on the skin you can really be confident a good place to start cleaning is your colon, liver & kidney’s, simply applying something topically on the skin is only a temporary solution to a deeper issue. The SYMPTOM is an indicator that the foundation is in need of repair.

Happy New Year! 

Are you a goal-setter or a goal-getter

  • Goal-setters make resolutions and set goals but fail to do what it takes to bring them to fruition.

The Abundance Challenge

Every fresh start requires a fresh mindset. The beginning of a NEW Year is the perfect time to reevaluate your thoughts and get your mind ready for action. The purpose of the Abundance Challenge is to help you be more intentional with bringing abundance into your life by focusing on four core areas and using Abundance oil every day. 

The thoughts you think and the words you speak must align if you plan to achieve a certain outcome. When you use the words ‘want’ or ‘need’, it signifies lack or being without. It speaks to limitation and lack of choice. But you DO have a choice! Every decision, every change begins with a choice. You will feel more empowered, more in control, and more equipped to shift your mindset, make lasting changes, and reach your goals when you make the CHOICE to do it and you start consciously shifting your thoughts and words.

To help you do just that, save these daily affirmations to your phone or print them off and hang them up somewhere you will see them every day.

We will dig further into this topic within the
Abundance Challenge. I would love to have you join me!

I hope you are having a great start to the new year! 

I have been getting messages from friends about being sick and wanting help with routine to use our Young Living supplements and oils.
This is a routine I shared with a friend that we follow when something is trying to get us.

I hope you find this helpful! Please save this email or copy the content and save it somewhere for when you need it!

This is what I would do for the girls or myself or my husband if we were getting sick with fever, chills, etc.
1. Start the diffuser going with 5 to 10 drops of thieves in the room you will be in the most. Keep refilling it and keep it running all the time.
2. Drink a pouch of Ningxia Red. Its high in antioxidants and will support your immune system.
3. mix up and drink Alkalime. It’s a lemon lime flavor. It isn’t good but its not really gross either. This will help to Alkalize your body. Illness thrives in an acidic environment so everything you can do to alkalize your body will help pull you out faster. Eat alkalizing foods and drink water.
4. Do a bath, not too warm with the fever, with 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup Epsom salts or magnesium flakes. The baking soda is alkalizing and the Epsom or magnesium will help detox. Try to stay in the bath for 40 mins
5. After bath apply 4 to 5 drops Thieves mixed with about 10 or so drops of carrier oil down the spine, rub it all in. Any left, rub on the bottoms of feet and into belly button.
6. Repeat with Frankincense, Lemon and peppermint. The peppermint will need a little dilution with carrier but the others are fine without. Yes, I would put all of those on at the same time. Rub any extra into the bottom of the feet.
7. Drink more water, do not eat any sugar for any reason. Sugar suppresses our immune system.
8. Repeat with the oils every hour. For real.
9. Take an Inner Defense. All of you take an inner defense. It may be hard on an empty tummy so take with a bit of something.
10. Take 3 to 4 detoxzyme – these enzymes support our immune system. When we are getting sick and feel achy its because our immune system is robbing enzymes from our muscles, so we up our enzymes to support the immune system doing its job.
11. Take 3 to 4 vit C, morning and night. Tons of studies about high dosing Vit c to get rid of junk.
12. Repeat.
13. I know it sounds like a lot but if/when you all don’t get sick and the sick one gets better sooner, its all worth it!
14. For all of us that aren't sick but sharing space with a sick person...take an inner defense and I would also get several drops of thieves, diluted with carrier oil down all of your spines and on the bottoms of all of your feet.
15. I would also fill every diffuser you have with thieves and keep them running.
16. Drink lots of water.
17. I would give us all enzymes every few hours. And ningxia and alkalime too. When you mix the alkalalime with water, just put a little water at first because it fizzes like alka seltzer…then add more water after the fizz quits.
18. Take 2 mighty pro before bed for the night. This gives the probiotic bacteria a chance to sit in our guts the longest without digestion happening...

There is more that could be added to this but I hope this is a great start and something to fall back on. 

When you are interested in getting started with Young Living and walking down the natural health lifestyle path more, it would be an honor to hold your hand.
I look forward to hearing from you!
