Fighting Cancer with ESSENTIAL OILS

The human body is all encompassing and reactive. On a cellular level we are made up of trillions of cells. These cells grow and divide as we need them and when they are old or damaged they die off and new ones are made. Cancer is a cellular response in our bodies when the process of shedding old, damaged or abnormal cells isn’t completed, and these cells then divide and grow.

Treatment for cancer is always evolving and with each person’s cellular DNA and modules being different we all react to treatment and cancer differently. Essential oils have become more widely used and accepted as a way to combat cancer and side effects.

Essential oils are active at the cellular level of our bodies and affect the biochemistry of our cells.  Essential oils are lipid soluble, which means they can penetrate the cell and strengthen the entire cellular system, because the interior of the cell is a lipid. They have the ability to clean receptor sites on the surface of cells, allowing for the proper communication.

According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, essential oils have the ability to erase incorrect DNA and then to correct it using frequencies. Every disease has a frequency, he found that certain frequencies can prevent the development of disease and that others would destroy disease. Substances with higher frequency will destroy diseases of a lower frequency. Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils have an Electromagnetic Frequency. Except for our sense of smell, all our other senses register first in the brain -- where sounds are deciphered, images clarified, and touch or taste distinguished, then, and only after everything has been dissected, inspected, and verified do we get an emotional response.

Properties of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils:

  1. They create an environment detrimental to pathogens (viruses, bacteria, etc).
  2. They create an environment of clear communication between all cells and all systems.
  3. They create an environment detrimental to cancer growth.
  4. They erase (deprogram) misinformation in our cells.
  5. They reprogram misinformation in our cells so they function and replicate properly.

Examples of Anti- Cancer Oils

1. Frankincense 

Frankincense is anti-inflammatory, which is vital in the quest to heal from all cancers. Frankincense essential oil also helps boost immune function and prevent illness by dangerous pathogens by multiplying white blood cells and modulating immune reactions. It improves circulation, reduces stress, as well as being a known pain reliever. Frankincense is also shown to provide neurological support, including the ability to destroy toxins that may lead to neurological damage.

2. Lavender

Lavender is a known pain reliever, and has demonstrated significant results in resetting the programmed cell death usually lacking in cancer cells. It has been observed to reduce the weight of tumors, and inhibit cell growth. Lavender reduces stress, supports the function of the immune system, and has several direct anti-bacterial properties that helps the body fight infection.

3. Myrrh

In terms of cancer, myrrh essential oil exhibits notable effects on cancer cell growth, and contains anti-inflammatory properties. Myrrh is known to support healthy hormone balance, which can be essential in cancer healing. Like lavender and frankincense, myrrh oil has long been used as a pain reliever and anti-fungal.

4. Peppermint

With Chemotherapy being one of the most frequently used treatments for cancer side effects are often harder to bare then then treatment. Peppermint essential oil has been effective in overcoming nausea and vomiting, upset stomach and headaches. Peppermint essential oil is also used as an antiseptic to help with infections.

 

Ways to use Essential Oils:

Things to remember:

  • Always use a top-quality, therapeutic grade oil. It should be certified organic, and 100% pure. Check the reputation of your supplier, and ensure there are no fillers or additives.
  • Essential oils are nature’s powerhouses. Keep in mind they are 40-50 times more potent than the plant itself. Everybody is different so you may need to try different oils to see which ones work best for you.
  • Do not heat oils, heating oils destroys their healing properties.
  • Always use carrier oils with using essential oils with children.

Essential oils 

We have heard about essential oils since the birth of baby Jesus and the wise men presenting frankincense and myrrh as gifts. Essential Oils have been widely used since ancient times and have been employed by priests and priestesses of virtually all religions.  Being so valuable, scent was regarded as divine.  Among other things, fragrant oils were used to attract spirits, gods and goddesses, to banish evil energies and to purify the temples.  Devotees and worshipers anointed themselves to offer sweet aromas to the gods and to facilitate divine communion through the energy of these sacred scents.

Recently, the study of the physical and emotional effects of aromatics has become a specialized aspect of herbalist, now widely known as aromatherapy.  Aroma therapists employ both the petrochemical properties of essential oils (e.g. anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory etc.) which render them effective remedies, as well as utilizing their more etheric qualities as therapeutics for the mind and spirit.  Aromatherapy can therefore be regarded as a truly holistic treatment for the body-mind and the spirit.

Using essential oils to alleviate both physical and emotional symptoms is one of the most popular of all the complementary therapies.  Aromatherapy utilizes plant oils extracted by a process of distillation.  Although touch, in the form of massage, is the main tool of the aroma therapist, there are many other ways of delivering essential oils to the nervous and circulatory systems of the body and olfactory center of the brain.  Oils can be used in a bath or diffused, added in lotions or compresses, taken orally and used in a mouthwashes/toothpastes, or applied directly to the skin. Along with many ways to clean, or improve overall quality of life.  

Although smell seems to be generally considered as the least important of our senses, odors, both good and bad, can affect mood and behavior and can be tailored to have very positive effects on emotional and physical health. Research to validate aromatherapy is still incomplete, but aroma therapists say that esters, and other chemicals the oils contain can have a powerful effect on our emotional state, relaxing us, energizing us or relieving stress, anxiety or depression.  Essentials oils may also relieve physical complaints.  For example, lavender essential oil has been found to have analgesic properties and can be used to treat headaches, and frankincense oil is a used for purification, help overcome fear, negative feelings, loss, and grief. Cinnamon is used to stimulate focus and concentration, to help with communication on spiritual as well as physical level. With so many ways to use essential oils the options are endless on how to include them in your daily activities and life.

MagicMAY 


Magic is defined as “having or apparently having supernatural powers:” Even Webster defines magic as something that can’t be understood. What was once classified as demonic can now be viewed as manifestation or positive thinking. Why do we have to classify everything into right or wrong and how does that play into who we are in the views of society today?

The concept of a witch underwent a relatively radical change. In the 14th century, witches were looked at as sorcerers who had been deceived by the Devil into practicing magic that went against God. As the 15th century and Christianity continued to rise anyone with spiritual beliefs became the all-out malevolent Devil-worshiper, who had made a pact with him in which they had to devote themselves to Satanism. As a part of this, they gained new supernatural powers that enabled them to work magic. The fear continued to rise and the stories only took on more demonic meanings as witches and magic were in a league with the Devil and needed to be cleansed.  

Magic had a stigma of negativity from fear and spiritual differences. A mass superstition of anything bad that happened was caused from a witches spell or curse. It was sited that in Great Britain alone 392,000 people were murdered as the witch-burning craze continued throughout the 16th century.

As time continued some communities started to retain professional practitioners who did “folk magic.” They were believed to be able to cure disease, counter malevolent sorcery, identify enemies, foretell the future, and locate treasure and lost property, and would offer their services in these areas for a fee.  In contrast seeing the practice of magic as part of a wider spiritual system.

What was termed as magic during those times can be interpreted today as healing modalities such as astrology, reiki, acupuncture, essential oils, naturopathic medicine, and crystal therapy.  A witch can now described a person who is intuitive or self-reflective. Do the same fears exist today transferring to new terminology? Or have we as a society evolved to understand that unknown doesn’t have to mean bad or evil?

Magic and witches, potions and spells all may have a negative connotation to some people; it’s a perspective that we can all reflect upon, as the world is full of different religions, race, and spiritual beliefs. As each one of us is different I try to consider that being categorized doesn’t make it my truth.

Sending a little Magic in your life this month of May!

SPRING FORWARD 

 

(March 21-April 20). The time of the Aries. It is considered the first sign of the zodiac as this is when spring starts, and symbolizes birth and new beginnings. Also, in ancient Roman times, March was the first month of the year.  We associate a new year as a clean slate, a renewal of goals, a way to refocus and recommitting ourselves to who we want to be.

From high tide in Tucson, “Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life.  A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job…And onward we go, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new way of life. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another - that is surely the basic instinct… Crying out: Time to take this life for what it is!”

A new life, a change, the way to start fresh….

But no ever talks about what happens after you take the leap. The motivation to change your life and go for the dream is all encompassing as you try to analyze options and fight the FEAR of what is to come in any decision or non-decision that you make. What makes us take that initial step is not what keeps us walking on the path.  All too often the fear and acceptance of others dictates our decisions and we ignore the signals that we receive in response to the endless questions we pose. What are we doing here? What is my purpose? How do I accomplish my goals?

I don’t have an ultimate plan or how to guide of what to do to change your life, but what I can tell you is that I have jumped to follow a path and change my life drastically more then once. The feelings deep down that motivate you to say I need more, I want more, and only you can say what is the right decision for you.  You will be expected to have all the answers and have everything figured out but the truth is you wont.  It’s a step of faith in your self, a commitment to you, your instincts and guidance for the “right” steps in your own life.  Always remember that every day is a new opportunity to Spring forward with new beginnings and endless opportunities. Keep your Faith- Prayer- Belief in the universe and God.  No matter how many zigzags you feel you are taking it’s your choice and path.  Trust yourself, as you are the true reflection of God in your life.  Jump and your life will appear!

Love and Light ~ Jessi 




MArch madness


March Madness is the largest College basketball tournament determining the National Champion of the Men’s Division 1 teams. March Madness is an intense and competitive tournament that pushes these teams and players to be at their best 100% of the time. While the rest of us may not be in this tournament, we can all relate to the constant pressure of life and the never-ending schedules of day-to-day activities.

Who designed our life’s to be overwhelming? Stressful? Why is it that over 90% of Americans say they are Fatigued? Tense? Worried? We all get caught up in this illusion of control and who is capable of managing 10 different things at once. In fact being a “multi- tasker” is considered a strength to most employers. Who’s capable of getting the most done in shortest amount of time.

As a child my perception of success and life was that inactivity was being lazy, that we always have to keep moving to get ahead, it takes hard work to achieve what you want, and things are not just given to you.  Through these observations my world was always a struggle.  A constant tug and war to reach this ideal of success and achievement while physically I was being pushed to the max. It wasn’t until I had an undiagnosed illness that was taking over my body and my life that I realized this way of thinking was ALL-wrong! We act as if everything can be completed through action when sometimes the answer is through stillness. Leaving my corporate job, listening to my body, and using holistic approaches to healing I was able to remove the physical obstacle from my life. These ideals took over my life only to remind me the power of perception and the knowledge to be able to change it.

While March Madness is a true reflection of athleticism and skill. I wake up remembering that we are all the Champions of our lives. Light and Love ~Jessi 


                     The heart chakra

When we think of Love…we naturally think of our Heart. The Heart Chakra is the center of the chakras and the source of wholeness; therefore it’s our existence. Through this chakra you are connected to the depths within you and the universe. Your heart is a complex organ but contains the substance of the soul. LOVE.

Love is God/ Source, Light. We all connect through this love and when you’re connected you are more in harmony with your life’s purpose and meaning. You follow your heart, trust your instincts and are sensitive to the laws and powers that create and recreate your reality at every moment.  A disconnected or closed Heart Chakra can result in unresolved anger, fear, resentment, pain and other emotions locked up. Here are a few ways to open your Heart….

   Meditate

Once you have become aware of an imbalance in the Heart Chakra, meditation can help to restore the proper energy flow through the region. Meditation is a personal experience, and everyone should find out what works best for him or her.  Starting with closing your eyes and breathing deeply can be meditative and helpful to your healing.

  Work with the Chakra's Color

The color green is associated with the Heart Chakra and you can incorporate it into your meditation practice and your daily life. Add green clothing to your wardrobe and decorate with some green. Remember to strive for balance and not to go overboard. Plants are a great way to add greenery to your life.  

  Affirmations

To heal the physical heart and the spiritual (emotional) heart center and open yourself up to unconditional love and compassion it can be useful for you to practice positive affirmations to increase the positive energy associated with the heart chakra. This can include little notes on the bathroom mirror and on the computer monitor. Examples of affirmations include statements like these:

  • “ I deeply, and completely love and accept myself”
  • “ I am open to love”  
  • “ I live in balance; in a state of grace and gratefulness”  

The Heart chakra is the place where the physical and spiritual come together, and is the foundation of love and gratitude. When it is open, there is much joy and love to be found in the world and inside ourselves.

LIGHT and LOVE to you. ~ Jessi
