IMMUNE SYSTEM

When environmental threats get past these defenses, white blood cells kick into action. White blood cells find invaders, tag them as harmful, and destroy them. But that’s not all—they also remember the invaders so that if they try to attack you again, your body can stop them even faster. White blood cells are made and stored in a variety of places inside the body, such as the tonsils, thymus, lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen.

Keeping the immune system functioning properly depends on many things, including getting adequate sleep, regular exercise, and a balanced diet. Malnourishment and micronutrient deficiencies can result in altered immune responses and increased risk for health issues. Supplementing your diet with specific vitamins, minerals, and probiotics may build up and fortify the immune system.

Daily supplementation with Microplex VMz® food nutrient complex is rich in vitamin D3 and other vitamins and minerals that support a healthy immune system.* PB Assist®+ Probiotic Defense Formula can also be helpful to the immune system by supporting gut health.* Use essential oils such as Oregano, doTERRA On Guard®, Lemon, Melaleuca, and Thyme to also support the immune system.*

ENDOCRINE SYSTEM

The endocrine system is made up of glands (the pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal, ovaries, and testicles) throughout the body that produce, store, and release hormones. Hormones are chemicals that serve as a form of communication within the body. The endocrine system triggers the glands to release hormones into the bloodstream, which distributes the hormones throughout the body. These hormones are critical to our survival; they help maintain homeostasis, which includes regulating blood pressure, blood sugar, sex hormones, digestive enzymes, stress response, and more. Keeping the glands functioning well is key to overall health and quality of life.

There are many different kinds of hormone molecules, and each kind sends a different message that triggers different responses. The endocrine system regulates the release of adrenaline, cortisol, insulin, progesterone, melatonin, estrogen, testosterone and many other hormones that send messages throughout the body.

The pituitary gland is known as the master gland. It controls all other glands in the endocrine system. A special part of the brain called the hypothalamus controls the pituitary gland, so the endocrine system is actually under the control of the nervous system. Hormones controlled by the endocrine system control the function of the many organs and body systems, including the skin, kidney, stomach, liver, pancreas, reproductive system, and heart.

Essential oils can be used to support the endocrine system and promote balance and homeostasis. Several essential oils may be useful in supporting the healthy functioning of the endocrine system, including Clary Sage, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa, Rose, and Rosemary. Diffusing these oils, applying them topically, or taking them internally can be helpful.

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Symptoms of digestive distress may include stomach or abdominal discomfort, belching, gas, feeling over full, and other issues. Many essential oils support healthy digestion and ease discomfort.* Fennel, Ginger, and Peppermint are popularly used around the world for their digestive benefits. DigestZen®Digestive Blend is a wonderful companion to aid in the digestion of food, soothe occasional upset stomachs, and reduce uncomfortable gas and bloating.* In addition, DigestZen nutritional supplements provide targeted solutions for optimal digestive function and comfort.*

Compromised digestive function can result in energy deficiencies, lowered immunity, weight gain, and gastrointestinal discomfort. You can support your digestive system by eating a healthy diet high in fiber, and by drinking plenty of water. Taking a good probiotic (such as PB Assist®+) can also be helpful.

The pancreas makes enzymes that the small intestines uses to break down food. If you don’t make enough enzymes, you may experience discomfort. Taking DigestZen TerraZyme with meals supports digestion and metabolism of enzyme-deficient, processed foods.*

Week Twentysix Review:

“Make n Take” Monday

Are you one of those people who likes skin care that smells like dessert? Most of those products are chalk-full of artificial fragrances and chemicals that trick your nose into thinking that it is the real thing, when it really isn’t. This Strawberry-Lime Sugar Scrub smells like fresh strawberry jam and is even easier to make.

Ingredients:

1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
1 cup raw turbinado sugar
⅓ cup organic virgin coconut oil
⅓ cup doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 drops Lime oil

Instructions:

  1. In a large plastic bag, add strawberries and crush with a rolling pin.
  2. Add crushed strawberries and sugar into large bowl.
  3. In a microwavable glass cup, add the organic virgin coconut oil and place in microwave for 15 seconds or until melted.
  4. In the glass cup with melted virgin coconut oil, add Fractionated Coconut Oil, vanilla extract, and Lime essential oil. Stir until combined and add to bowl with strawberries and sugar.
  5. Stir until everything is combined. If mixture looks too dry, add 1 teaspoon of Fractionated Coconut Oil at a time until consistency is right.
  6. Store in airtight container.
  7. To us, take a handful of scrub into hands and rub together until sugar dissolves. Rinse under warm water and pat dry. For added softness, rub hands with doTERRA SPA Hand & Body Lotion.

CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

To support heart health, it’s important to have a good dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are often deficient in the modern diet, as they only occur naturally in seafood and a few plants, but these healthy unsaturated fats increase heart health.* xEO Mega provides a wide range of omega-3 fatty acids including EPA, DHA, ALA and SDA to support cardiovascular and circulatory health.* Daily supplementation with xEO Mega helps support heart health and healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range.*

Essential oils can also be beneficial. Cinnamon Bark and Cassia essential oils can promote healthy circulatory and cardiovascular function when taken internally.* Internal use of Marjoram and Copaiba may promote healthy cardiovascular health. If supporting heart health is a special concern for you, take one to two drops in a veggie capsule each morning.*

Summer DIY’s

Basic Bug Spray Recipe

Image result for diy bug spray doterra

Ingredients:

-2 oz of witch hazel (This doesn’t need to be exact.  I just eyeball it by filling the bottle a little less than half full)

-2 oz of distilled water (again, I eyeball it and fill the bottle most of the way full, but leave room for the essential oils and the spray top)

-essential oils: 8 drops lavender, 8 drops terrashield, 8 drops geranium, 8 drops lemongrass, and 8 drops patchouli

(that might sound like a lot of essential oil, but keep in mind that this recipe makes a 4 ounce spray which is the equivalent of 12 standard size roller bottles)

Tips for using:

  • oils and water don’t mix, so be sure to shake the bug spray before you use it
  • try to use a metal bottle and store it in a room temp. place when not in use
  • apply as often as you need it
