Hope Beyond Hormones

Hope Beyond Hormones  whatis-a-hormone                                                                            October 2016.

We are literally drowning in a rising tide of oestrogen excess.  The widespread use of agricultural pesticides and herbicides, of hormone-enhanced poultry, beef, pork and seafood, and the relentless accumulation of non-biodegradable synthetic oestrogens from HRT and the pill, have contaminated our worlds water supplies.  No wonder we see fish, belly up at the end of some of beaches!  They are the by-product of pollution.

The corporate driven dissemination of oestrogen excess has caused increasing infertility, created developmental malformations and promoted unprecedented hormone-related growth disorders.

Perhaps you are wondering, is there any good news here, is there any chance that we can turn this around, and bring a sense of calm and joy back to our hormonal health?  I am here to say we can, this is not a doom and gloom article, instead one of positive solutions and hope.  However, I need to bring your attention to a few things first.

Don’t Get Sick This Winter!

orangesComplete Vit CIt’s just another cold or flu you might say, but why succumb to the next virus, flu or immune issue, when with a few lifestyle shifts you could do something really positive to improve and correct your physical and mental body? Building a strong immune system can actually be heaps of fun, as you will learn in this article.

It’s true, your immune system is under attack every day due to so many factors like; stress, lack of rest and poor diet and these three situations all contribute to reducing the strength of your immune system and weakening your body’s response.  But folks, it’s all about response and you can design that response.

Response is the difference between you getting a cold or flu and fighting it off before it takes hold.  Unfortunately we often don’t think about bolstering our immune response until it’s too late.  Another way of putting that is, when you are driving along in your car and you get a flat tyre, it’s only really a problem if you don’t know how to change the flat tyre.  Anticipate the situation, empower yourself with some clever lifestyle alterations and you will nail the whole cold and flu season with confidence and laughter!!!

Like I said most times we don’t think about immune boosting activity or protecting the body until the cold or flu is right there in our body and we are fighting with whatever immune support we have already got stored up.  There’s a few things we can do every day, starting with Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is a water soluable nutrient, which means we have to get it outside of our bodies, so we can store it up again… It’s a tricky one to balance, and is always used up in stressful situations, as are the B Vitamins – both water soluable.

Here’s some interesting facts to consider..

  • The common cold is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with adults averaging 2-4 infections per year and up to 12 infections per year in children
  • Over 75 millions days of work are missed each year due to the flu
  • The Flu can circulate worldwide, easily spreading from person to person and infecting people in any age group Read the rest of this entry

Wild About Wild Orange

orangesComplete Vit CThe first time I smelt Wild Orange, I was walking into the market at Noosa Harbour, pushing a trolley with all my product piled on top.  The aroma was  intoxicating and delightful.  I knew that it was affecting me on a base level, and now that I have learned more about Wild Orange (Doterra), I know why.  There’s something about Wild Orange that affects one on an emotional level, you just can’t be miserable when you are smelling it!  Another part of me was resisting the smell because I knew, I just knew that I would be swept into another world of discovery perhaps even some change and a different perspective.  A corridor in my mind had been re-visited, a door opened, all because of a ‘scent!’  Now what does that mean for you reading this?  Read on…..
