Frankincense: Historically Important, Modernly Necessary
by HealthOils

Frankincense's historical use dates back centuries, is mentioned in several different Holy Books, including the Bible, and is still used throughout the world today. It's gummy sap resin is used in numerous religious ceremonies and rituals, but that's not the only benefit of this wonderous plant. Frankincense comes in many different varieties, but the latin name for the Frankincense DoTERRA carries is Boswellia frereana, and native to Northern Somalia. It is sometimes referred to by locals as Maydi.

Historically, our ancestors knew the importance of this plant medicine. According to"Organic Facts". The main components of this essential oil are Alpha Pinene, Actanol, Bornyl Acetate, Linalool, Octyl Acetate, Incensole and Incensyl Acetate.

Frankincense has been a popular ingredient in cosmetics and incense burners for centuries. It has even been found in the remains of ancient Egyptian and Anglo-Saxon civilizations and numerous modern studies are have been conducted. Here is one from "US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health" It notes that frankincense aids in preventing collagen degredation, and should be further studied for use as an anti-inflammatory for arthritis.

Boswellia Frereana Frankincense has remained in high use in Ayurvedic medicine and Aromatherapy. Maybe that is because Frankincense also has shown anti-cancer properties. Another study on Boswellia Sacra (or Sacred Frankincense), similar to our previous observations in human bladder cancer cells, Boswellia sacra essential oil induces breast cancer cell-specific cytotoxicity. Suppression of cellular network formation and disruption of spheroid development of breast cancer cells by Boswellia sacra essential oil suggest that the essential oil may be effective for advanced breast cancer. Consistently, the essential oil represses signaling pathways and cell cycle regulators that have been proposed as therapeutic targets for breast cancer. Future pre-clinical and clinical studies are urgently needed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of "Boswellia Sacra Essential Oil" as a therapeutic agent for treating breast cancer." I think I will be stocking up on this powerhouse essential oil.

If you would like to purchase Frankincense, it can be purchased through numerous essential oil companies, but it is important to recognize the purity and protocol it was collected in. Steam distillation is better, without the use of synthetic dilutions. You want Certified Pure Theraputic Grade Essential Oils,   go here to get yours today!

Get Jiggy For Ginger
by HealthOils

Ginger and Tea are two words that are rarely uttered in my vocabulary, at least they used to be. I recently discovered the healing benefits of a hot cup of tea for your mind, body, and spirit. Over the last several months I have had an unquenchable thirst for different blends and variety. I stumbled upon Ginger Aid tea from Traditional Medicinals. I have to say, it is delicious, with just enough heat to help rattle loose chest congestion and warm a cold body. As I sipped this delicious elixir, I thought to myself, "Self, I bet this amazing tea is doing all sorts of good things inside my body, but what are those things?"

The following facts are what I found to be most interesting while researching the amazing properties and health benefits of Ginger:

  1. Ginger is one of the best natural remedies for nausea. It can actually be used for multiple digestive ailments, but it has been used in multiple cultures around the world to aid with nausea and upset stomachs. These results are widely reported, and it is even used to stave off nausea and vomitting with some of those undergoing chemotherapy.
  2. Fresh, organically grown ginger is best. When herbs, fruits, and vegetables are grown organically, you know that they are grown WITHOUT all of those harsh and TOXIC chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Pesticide toxicity build up has been linked to multiple digestive system disorders, and even linked to infertility. Organic produce is grown naturally, with more love and attention than the pesticide laden stuff anyways. I for one like to know where I get my food, and I like to support my local farmers, too. My fresh Ginger comes from Custom Gardens Organic Farm in Yerington, NV. It is the BEST fresh ginger I've ever had. It looks nothing like most of the stuff you see in the store.
  3. Gingerol, a compound found in ginger, is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are what keeps our body able to protect itself. Think rust, oxidation. Your body craves antioxidants in today's chemical laden world. Antioxidants are like boosters for your immune system.
  4. Ginger has been used for thousands of years in Eastern and Ayurvedic medicine. The roots are what are used, and they can be dried, powdered, even candied. Some texts reporting the use of ginger for nausea date back over 2,000 years ago.
  5. University of Maryland acknowledges lab trials that identified ginger as having anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. The anti-inflammatory study cites 261 osteoarthritis patients taking ginger extract felt less pain and took less pain reliever medications than those who took a placebo.
So, next time you're sitting down to a nice cup of coffee, maybe try some tea on for size, in fact, maybe make it ginger tea.

9 Foods That Healed My Body + Belong In Every Kitchen
by Katrina Love Senn

Food is a subject very close to my heart. As a young girl, I loved being in the kitchen, baking, cooking and creating new recipes.

But, in my teenage years, as I started to gain weight, I started to see food as my enemy. I struggled every year to lose my extra weight. With each failed diet, I pretty much resigned myself to being overweight for the rest of my life. But, fortunately, the Universe had a different plan!

Just days before my 20th birthday, my body collapsed and I became extremely sick. Upon my doctor's recommendation, I was faced with the prospect of taking experimental medication for life. But, my intuition said NO. There was another way. I decided not to take the medication and was instead guided to go on my own personal healing journey.

I turned my attention to the alternative to taking pharmaceutical drugs. During this time, I learned how to heal myself of chronic disease. I was able to rebalance my thyroid and hormonal imbalances, gently cleanse my liver and miraculously heal my asthma.

Another unexpected side-benefit of going on my healing journey was that I also lost over 60 pounds naturally!

During this time, I used specific foods to heal my body from within. I felt blessed to also rekindle my love-affair with food. I was delighted to discover that food can taste great, as well as heal. An Ayurvedic quote says, “If diet is wrong, medicine is no use and when diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”

Here are 9 foods that I introduced to my kitchen. They radically transformed my body and healed me of chronic disease, allowing me to experience vibrant health:

1. Fresh, green vegetables...

Focus your diet around plant foods, especially fresh green vegetables, which are high in micronutrients. Choose bitter greens, such as mustard greens, collard greens, broccoli, arugula, spinach and kale. (And opt for organic wherever possible.)

Make healing broths and soups that are easy to digest, steam them served with a dash of seasalt and fresh lemon juice, or eat them fresh in summer salads.

Make a healing tonic by juicing half a cucumber with some pineapple, pears or apples and half lemon – yum!

2. Organic protein...

As you begin to heal and build your strength, you need to turn your attention to stabilizing your blood sugars and energy levels. Protein-rich foods can help!

Try organic meat, organic chicken, wild salmon, fresh local fish, organic greek yogurt, and organic eggs. For vegetarian options, try quinoa, peas, beans, lentils, almonds, almond butter, seaweed, micro-algae, E3 Live, Warrior protein powder, hemp products, low-processed organic soy and chia seeds.

3. Extra-virgin cold-pressed, organic oils...

Fresh, organic oils are very tasty, beautifully rich in aroma and fragrance. It's important to know that all oils should have a "best-before" date, so always use fresh oils well before this date.

Oils can be used to make a wide array of healthy salad dressings, drizzled over steamed vegetables or used for dipping. You can use organic, extra-virgin coconut oil for making sweet treats. Unlike other oils, when placed in the fridge or freezer, coconut oil will go hard and set.

4. Seeds: Sesame, sunflower, chia, pumpkin seeds...

There are such a wide variety of delicious seeds available. Each kind of seed has its own distinct flavor and can be used to add variety to your cooking.

When you are healing, grind them up to make them easier on your digestion. I grind linseed, sunflower and almond seeds to make LSA, which I use on everything! Sprinkle them on salads or add to breakfast smoothies and cereal.

5. Honey (or unrefined sugar substitute)...

Sweets are an important part of the 4 tastes of the palate: sweet, salty, savory and bitter. Always look for unrefined sugar. Organic honey in it’s natural form is delicious as a natural sweetener. Other vegetarian alternatives are stevia, coconut sugar, maple syrup or coconut nectar. Best to opt for organic brands to minimize the processing. Avoid highly refined processed sugar and zero-calorie sugar substitutes like aspartame, equal and nutra-sweet as these are toxic for your body.

6. Lemons...

These little gems made this list because fresh lemons are so versatile. I like to start my day by drinking a detoxifying lemon water drink by squeezing a quarter of a lemon into a big glass of filtered water. Try lemons cut into wedges and squeezed over salads and soups for extra flavor and yummy zing!

7. Sea salt...

Real sea salt is unrefined salt which has been taken directly from the sea and dehydrated by the sun, forming a beautiful crystalline structure. It's ultra rich in micronutrients and totally delicious.

If you haven’t made the switch from using highly refined, regular, white table salt to natural sea-salt yet, I urge you to do so today. You can substitute sea-salt for table salt in both your savory and sweet cooking. Your health, your body and your taste buds truly will thank you for it!

8. Herbs...

Using either fresh or dried herbs can transform your cooking as they add new taste sensations to your food.  They can take your cooking from every day food to something quite gourmet. Buy your herbs straight from a greengrocers or local food market. For the adventurous, try growing your own! Some of my favorites are fresh parsley, coriander, basil, and dill.

9. Apple cider vinegar (ACV)...

If you want to quickly improve your digestive health, then try apple cider vinegar. I highly recommend the brand Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider vinegar, which is affordable and delicious. Use it daily in combination with (or as a substitute for) lemon juice as an alkalizing drink. Or use it to make a tasty salad dressing by blending it with some olive oil, herbs, and a sprinkle of sea-salt.

Give yourself the gift of vibrant health today by stocking up on these healthy-kitchen must haves. When your kitchen is stocked with foods that are healthy, you will be more inclined to create healthy snacks and meals for yourself.

A healthy kitchen = a healthy you!

What are the Health Benefits of Tai Chi?
Tai Chi Videos for Beginners

Tai chi is a noncompetitive martial art known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits. As an exercise, it comprises gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness.

It has been shown to improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and to reduce the risk of falls in older people. It appears to reduce pain and the symptoms of depression.

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that has evolved over centuries to become a means of alleviating stress and anxiety, a form of "meditation in motion." Advocates claim that it promotes serenity and inner peace.

The phrase "t'ai chi ch'uan" translates to "supreme ultimate fist" or "boundless fist". Tai Chi can be traced back to Taoist and Buddhist monasteries.

Tai Chi is considered to be safe for people of all ages as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints.

2. History of tai chi
3. Health benefits of tai chi

Types of tai chi
There are five different styles of tai chi, dating from different periods. Each has its own methods and principles, lineage, and date of origin.

They are:

  • Chen-style, started between 1580 and 1660
  • Yang-style, started between 1799 and 1872
  • Wu- or Wu (Hao)-style, started between 1812 and 1880
  • Wu-style, started between 1870 and 1942
  • Sun-style, started between 1861 and 1932.

Some focus on health, while others stress competition or self-defense.

History of tai chi

The true origins of tai chi remain a mystery, but the concepts are rooted in Chinese history, in Taoism and Confucianism.

The founder of tai chi is believed to be Zhang Sanfeng, a 12th-century Taoist monk. Some stories claim that Zhang Sanfeng left his monastery to become a hermit, and that he created his own form of fighting based on softness.

Sanfeng is reported to have said:

"In every movement, every part of the body must be light and agile and strung together. The postures should be without breaks. Motion should be rooted in the feet, released through the legs, directed by the waist and expressed by the fingers. Substantial and insubstantial movements must be clearly differentiated."

The low-impact nature of tai chi means it is suitable for people of all ages.

Health benefits of tai chi

The benefits of tai chi are said to include the reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression, and the enhancement of mood, both in both healthy people and in those with chronic conditions.

Some of the benefits claimed for tai chi include:
◾Better mood, with lower levels of depression, stress, and anxiety
◾Greater aerobic capacity and muscle strength
◾More energy and stamina
◾Enhanced flexibility, balance, and agility
◾Lower blood pressure and improved heart health
◾Reduced Inflammation
◾Fewer falls.

Other benefits are said to include better sleep quality and an enhanced immune system.

Parkinson's disease

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) found that people with Parkinson's disease who practiced tai chi experienced significantly improved gait and posture, and fewer falls.

Chronic heart failure

Research at Harvard Medical School and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center found that patients with chronic heart failure who regularly practiced tai chi experienced a better quality of life and mood, and that they slept better.

Fibromyalgia

Other research suggests that in people with fibromyalgia, tai chi can bring relief from joint pain and other symptoms.

Diabetes

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine has indicated that tai chi can improve blood glucose levels and immune system response in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Depression

The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry has indicated that a weekly tai chi exercise class with a standard depression treatment for a group of older adults with depression could help to treat depressive symptoms.

Another study suggests that it can help people with Parkinson disease, traumatic brain injury, insomnia, substance abuse, and cognitive impairment.

10 Simple Habits to Grow a Positive Attitude
By Megan Wycklendt

The Challenge: Having a negative attitude keeps us from being happy and impacts the people we interact with.
The Science: Science tells us that having a positive attitude has a direct connection with happiness and success.
The Solution: Make positivity a habit by making these small adjustments to your daily life and mindset!

Our life is a reflection of our attitude. Without even noticing it, it can be easy to become negative and cynical towards the world as we are continuously exposed to  tragedy and injustice in the media and as we experience our own heartache and distress.

Not only is a negative attitude preventing you from fully enjoying your life, it can have a significant impact on your environment. The energy a person brings with them is contagious. One of the best things you can offer your family, organization or community is your positive attitude.

In the wise words of Michael Jackson, “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.” As creatures of habit, by making small adjustments to your daily life and mindset, positive habits can be formed to make yourself and everyone you interact with happier.  Here is a list of 10 habits that can turn a gloomy outlook into an effortlessly optimistic attitude. 

1. Keep a gratitude journal.

Sometimes one single event can ruin an entire day and an unpleasant interaction or experience at night can overshadow the enjoyable parts of our day. With this awareness that our mind tends to cling to the negative, we can intentionally focus on the good parts of our day to offset this imbalance. Try writing down 5 things that you feel grateful for every day and see how your attitude changes. Science has found that gratitude can significantly increase your happiness, and protect you from stress, negativity, anxiety and depression. Check out this list of 13 ways gratitude will significantly improve your life.

2. Reframe your challenges.

There are no dead ends, only re-directions. Although we might try, there are very few things in life that we have complete control over. We should not let uncontrollable occurrences from the outside turn our inner to mush. What we can control is the effort that we put in and when we give our full effort, there is no reason for regret. Have fun with challenges, embrace them as adventures instead of  attempting to resist an experience for growth. “Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.” – Robert Kiyosaki

3. Get good at being rejected.

Rejection is a skill. Chalk every broken heart and failed job interview as practice because no one gets to slide through life without being rejected. Don’t let it harden you and don’t expect the worse. If you wait for bad things to happen, chances are it will or you’ll narrow in on the bad in the midst of the may good things you’ve missed along the way. When there are cracks in your heart, they let the sun in.

4. Use positive words to describe your life.

The words that we use have a lot more power than we think. How you talk about your life is how your life will be. Your mind hears what you say. If you describe your life as boring, busy,  mundane, chaotic, that is how you will percieve it and you will feel the effects in your body and mind. If you use the words simple, involved, familiar or lively, you will see your life in a whole different light and find more enjoyment in the way you chose to shape your life.

A study from US data suggests that having a positive attitude is not only has a direct effect on your happiness, it is also correlated with your earning wage.

5. Replace have with get.

Do you ever notice how many times we say that we have to do something?  I have to go to work. I have to go grocery shopping. I have to pay my rent. Now change this one little word to get and see what happens. I get to go to work. I get to go grocery shopping. Even, I get to pay my rent. Your attitude quickly changes from needing to fulfill obligations to being grateful for the things that we become accustomed to having:  a job to support you and your family, food on the table, and a roof over your head. Try to make this change when you are thinking to yourself and you may feel and appear happier and less stressed.

6. Don’t let yourself get dragged into other people’s complaints.

Your day was going pretty well and then you get to work and your co-worker can’t stop complaining about the cold weather. You didn’t really think about it before he/she brought it up and now you find yourself agreeing and joining in on the complaint-fest of how sick you are of this cold weather. In a month you’ll be pulled into complaints about how it’s too hot. Don’t fall into the trap. A study done at the Warsaw School of Social Psychology shows that complaining leads to lower moods and negative emotions, decreased life satisfaction and optimism, and emotional and motivational deficits.  You might find that your co-worker will complain less without the validation of someone else having the same complaint.

7. Breathe.

Our breath is directly connected to our emotions. Have you noticed we hold our breath sometimes when we are concentrating on something? Can you feel your breath change when you are angry or anxious? Our breath changes depending on how we feel. The great news is that the connection goes the other way too. We can also change how we feel using our breath! Check out this infographic on the scientific benefits of breathing.

8. Notice the righteous in times of tragedy.

It’s hard to have hope and stay positive when hate and violence is all over the media. What we don’t see as much is that in every instance of natural disasters, war, traumatic experience, you will find people rising up, reaching out to each other and showing raw compassion and love. Hold onto the stories of modern day heroes and selflessness in the times of fear and devastation.

9. Have solutions when pointing out problems.

Being positive doesn’t mean that you have to be oblivious to problems. Positive people have constructive criticisms to improve conditions. If you are going to point out problems in people or situations, place just as much effort into suggesting solutions. Instead of pointing out all of the things that are wrong, offer ways to make it better.

10. Make someone else smile.

Who do you think about most of the time? If we answered honestly, most of us would say themselves. It’s good to hold ourselves accountable, take responsibility for our life roles, hygiene, food, etc. but set a goal for each day to make someone else smile. Think about someone else’s happiness and it will help us to realize our immense impact that our attitude and expression has on the people around us.
