People often ask me questions concerning the use of different products since I have used the Young Living essential oils for many years. (I have learned a lot about diet and lifestyle as I went along and can honestly say that I feel better now in my 70’s than I did when I was in my 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.) In answer to a question about skin challenges this week, I wrote the following . . .
I cannot give protocols or specific “recommendations” for medical conditions. However, I can assist you in understanding what is happening in your body. The first thing I would look at is your DIET.
What do you eat on a typical day – everything that goes into your body?
HYPERACIDITY is a key factor in just about every challenge that the body faces. There are many things that contribute to the body being to acidic. However, SUGAR, CAFFEINE, and DAIRY PRODUCTS coupled with STRESS may be the most critical. “Sugar” means ANYTHING that is in a package rather than grown fresh. It also includes ALCOHOL, which turns into sugar within minutes in the body. “Dairy” includes ANYTHING that comes from a COW – milk, cheese, yogurt.
Deficiency of SULFUR is often involved when there is any type of skin challenge.
STRESS causes the body to become more acidic and magnifies other responses. (Many essential oilskin be of help here for sure.)
It is important to remember that the skin is a reflection of what is going on inside the body. The symptoms we experience are attempts to get our attention to make some changes. By the time we take notice, the issues have likely been going on for a long time. There are no “quick fixes”. It is a process to reverse the conditions and achieve a state of wellness.
CLEANSING first the colon and then the liver is fairly basic as the skin is the largest exit route for toxins in the body, When the colon is congested, there is no option other than the skin for the toxins to leave.
I hope this will get you started on the way to “Living Above the Line” where illness and disease are below the line and wellness and vitality are above it.
