  • ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurobehavioral disorder that causes an inability to focus and listen to direction. In older literature the term ADD or “ADD with hyperactivity” has been used for this same disorder.

    “Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral disorder that affects 3-5 percent of all American children. It interferes with a person's ability to stay on a task and to exercise age-appropriate inhibition (cognitive alone or both cognitive and behavioral). Some of the warning signs of ADHD include failure to listen to instructions, inability to organize oneself and school work, fidgeting with hands and feet, talking too much, leaving projects, chores and homework unfinished, and having trouble paying attention to and responding to details. … ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood, although the condition can continue into the adult years.”

    A summary of the relationship of Asperger syndrome, autism, and ADHD

    Because symptoms are similar between these disorders confusion may exist with the inexperienced in diagnosis as well as proper response. (for those that have children with these disorders it is not difficult to understand the difference.) The following summary addresses the similarities and differences.

    Autism is a developmental disorder that affects the way a child communicates and interacts. It can be generalized as ASD (autism spectrum disorder) that includes a range of different manifestations that varying in degree of severity. ASD includes Asperger’s syndrome (high-functioning autism), autism, and PDD-NOS (pervasive developmental disorders-not otherwise specified).

    ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurobehavioral disorder that causes an inability to focus and listen to direction. In older literature the term ADD or “ADD with hyperactivity” was used for this same disorder.

    One of the notable differences some have noted is that those with autism do not learn well from experience (or coping) but rather by rote or memorization. Most love structure and will repeat very well learned structure. On the other hand those with ADHD will learn from experiences and are able to extrapolate this learning to other experiences.

    It is believed the root causes of the two disorders are different but since they are both developmental disorders and both affect children in communication, social interaction, and behavioral characteristics they can be confused and even misdiagnosed. The website www.retrainthebrain.com gives the following lists of the behaviors occurring in autism and ADHD:

    Autism Behavioral Checklist

    · Difficulty mixing with other children

    · No real fear of danger

    · Tantrums: displays extreme distress for no apparent reason

    · Inappropriate giggling or laughing

    · May not want cuddling or act cuddly

    · Noticeable physical over activity or extreme under activity

    · Little or no eye contact

    · Works impulsively; often makes careless mistakes: work is sloppy*

    · Uneven gross/fine motor skills*

    ADHD Behavioral Checklist

    · Cannot talk or play quietly; disrupts others with talk or actions

    · Difficult awaiting turn in games or activities

    · Engages in potentially dangerous activities

    · Plays without normal caution or consideration of consequences

    · Severe temper tantrums

    · Interrupts, disrupts, talks and acts inappropriately

    · When younger, difficulty accepting soothing or holding

    · Always on the move, overactive, even during sleep

    · Often does not seem to listen when spoken to directly

    · Often does not give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in school work or other activities

    · Uneven gross/fine motor skills

Alzheimer's Disease and a protocol that may help

Alzheimer's is something that can affect anyone.  Having worked in Hospice and Home Health for over 15 years and having had a great grandma who suffered with this disease, I would have loved to have anything that would ease the confusion and loss or bring back even one extra moment of clarity.  

What Is Alzheimer's Disease
Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimers Support 

 Below is a regime that was posted by Lifeforce doTERRA. 

Take 4-5 drops each of Frankincense Oil, Thyme Oil, and Patchouli Oil in a capsule each day.

Take 4-5 drops each of Clove Oil, Melissa Oil and Vetiver Oil in a capsule once a week.

Rub Frankincense Oil on the base of skull & on neck area

Take a teaspoon of Fractionated Coconut Oil daily

Start out slowly especially with the vetiver and patchouli - using too much can cause a throbbing headache. Vetiver on the base of the skull, up in the hairline where the bones meet you can put a drop of vetiver but only one drop - it increases cognitive funtion but I put several drops there and got the throbbing headache - so be careful! Vetiver, Frankincense and Patchouli can be rotated to be put on the base of the skull but don't mix them together - use them one at a time.

Alzheimer’s Disease/Brain mysteries: Frankincense inside and out - diffuse, apply to the bridge of the nose, forehead, back of the neck, inside of the forearms, in capsules before meals and deep breathing techniques several times a day - sometimes surprises occur - mental clarity happens in spurts and gaps - treasure it - just inhaling this remarkable Frankincense can reduce disorientation and help with long term memory loss.
    (thank you Lifeforce doTERRA for this information!)
DoTERRAs Alpha CRS is also a vital supplement for Alzheimer's as it is designed to increase cellular health.
 Studies have shown that sesquiterpenes can pass the blood brain barrier. Oils high in sesquiterpenes Include Sandalwood, Ginger, Myrrh, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, and Frankincense.
These oils will also be very useful with people who have suffered from stroke or brain injury.

Respiratory syncytial virus -AKA- RSV

I know quite a few people who are asking about RSV.  As a new parent or an old one this is always a scary virus!
Symptoms vary and differ with age. They usually appear 4 - 6 days after coming in contact with the virus.Older children usually have only mild, cold-like symptoms, such as cough, stuffy nose, or low-grade fever.
Infants under age 1 may have more severe symptoms and often have the most trouble breathing.
In general, RSV symptoms include:
  I asked a Lifeforce Doterra for a regime to use to combat this viral infection.  They gave me the following recipe which has very common oils in it.  You can find all of the main oils listed below in the doTERRA Family Physician Kit.
On Guard

There are lots of things you can do for children with RSV, here is what I have found most helpful.
#1 Apply 1 drop On Guard on the bottom of babies feet 2-3 times a day to fight off viral infection.
Or you could also try 1 drop of any of the following oils instead: Melissa, Thyme, Oregano

#2 Apply 1-2 drops Lemon down babies spine, chest and on bottom of feet (dilute if needed)—this is for drying up the mucus and congestion. Use 2-3 times a day or more as needed.

#3 Apply 1-2 drops frankincense on chest and upper back for inflammation in lungs and building up immune system. Use 2-3 times a day or more as needed

#4 Apply 1-2 drops Breathe Blend (add 1-2 drops of a carrier oil---like coconut oil)on babies chest, upper back and diffuse it in their room to help breathe easier (any diffuser will work, but for this situation I highly recommend a diffuser that runs all night long). You can also cup your hands over baby’s mouth with the oil on it like you would a nebulizer to help them breathe better. Use 2-3 times a day, or more as needed.
Or you could use any of these oils in the same ways:
Peppermint oil increases our oxygen uptake, so you might want to try just 1-2 drops peppermint instead (make sure to dilute)….or adding some with the breathe.
You can also use 1-2 drops Eucalyptus or marjoram instead (make sure to dilute)……

Use every time they lay down for bed, and throughout the day as needed. It is not like medication where you have to wait every 4-6 hours. As long as you are using just a few drops at a time, you can use it as often as every 30 min to an hour (use your best judgement). Most parents have found that using it around 3 times a day has worked very well, I would recommend using it at least 2-3 times a day.

ALWAYS dilute oil when putting on babies, even on their feet. Someone was just telling me they put one drop of digestzen on their babies tummy and the baby threw up. You could take a drop of OnGuard and rub in in the palms of your hands and then massage their feet - that goes for all the oils and I personally wouldn't use Oregano on a baby unless I could get maybe a tip of a toothpick dipped in it then rub it in my hands with coconut oil on my hands then rub/massage babies feet.

If you do not have coconut oil, olive oil is a great substitute.  We use fractionated coconut oil.  It gets into your skin quickly without leaving you feeling oily or staining your clothes.

Thank you Lifeforce doTERRA for always having a great natural option and being ready to share!!

Snoring Relief:
Thyme oil 2 drops rubbed into the back of the big toe on both feet and along the edge of the foot where the toes meet the foot – rub nicely and enjoy quieter sleep – may take several nights of applying to be most effective.

Hot Flashes!!

Here is a great testimonial on Hot Flashes from from Debbie Woolston . . . 

I had SEVERE hot flashes and night sweats ... for 2 years and nine
months ... AT LEAST every two hours. doTERRA helped with the
intensity, but didn't alter the frequency until I found a combination
that works for me. It took about two weeks of doing it before I
finally was able to sleep more than two hours before waking just about
six weeks ago. It has since continued to adjust to where I only
occasionally (I mean it will be once a week or so!) have a 'warm
moment'! Seriously, not even enough to adjust clothing or covers!

I use Clary Sage, Vetiver and Lavender. I also have sometimes used
Balance or Serenity in place of the Lavender. I use a simple
progesterone cream (I think its called Nature's Lift - from a small
company in Orem, Utah). I'm almost afraid to stop using it, but have
forgotten it a night or two and not had a repeat ... perhaps with time
I'll give it up, but for now I continue. The absolute must is that I
SNIFF the "three" deeply before I go to bed. I also have a tiny
bottle of Vetiver/Lavender beside the bed so that if I awake to go to
the bathroom at night I sniff it before I go so I can quickly go back
to sleep.

Another Amazing testimonial! Shin Splints

Shin Splints
Lemongrass, Helichrysum, Myrrh for repair. Wintergreen or Deep Blue for pain. My daughter had them last year shortly before we knew about doTerra. The above are what i use for muscles and shin splints are basically a muscle issue and I've had plenty of that going on these past few months. Cypress may be added too. Muscle test if possible for the best combination. I experimented quite a bit. Helichrysum is pretty amazing. My daughter had a massive bruise covering her entire knee and she could barely walk for pain. I put on Helichrysum first and then a mix of Lemongrass, Myrrh and Wintergreen in FCO and after two applications (night and next day) she was pain-free and you could see the middle of the bruise was skin colored, not black. She was very impressed.
Thank you Sharon Hoehner for sharing!

Amazing Diabetes Testimonial!

DIABETES PROTOCOL . . . This is the testimonial that Al Garcia wrote. It does indicate that he uses Oregano daily in the diabetes protocol. Perhaps in a small
dose, it doesn't harm the liver. He has had great success with this protocol and has shared it with many of us.

"*Testimonial Story:*
My story begins 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes
and lived with being over weight and having a pretty sluggish feeling all
the time because of the medications that I was on to control my blood
sugars. I than made a life choice, that led me to come to Utah to start a new
direction from the restaurant business, so my family and I came to
work and and learn the herbal and natural approach to changing my condition
naturally. We worked really hard using vitamins and minerals, magnets
and pure & alkaline waters, diet and life style changes, exercise and
walking and began a regiment of rebuilding.My health was beginning to show
improvement though my blood sugars really did not show the improvement
I was hoping for.

It was not until I met Dr. Hill at an introductory to Oils event at our
Herbs for Health Store that I asked Dr. Hill what he had to help with
my diabetes and he shared with me a recipe of taking 3 drops of basil 3
drops of lemon and 1 drop of oregano. He also recommended Doterra's life
long vitality pack and use of Balance oil on the feet in the morning and
lavender at night.

I can't tell you how this protocol has changed my life over the past
several years, I saw my blood sugars go from the 400 range and dangerously
peaking into the 500 range to balancing in the low 100 range within 3 days.
Still two years later I have maintained in the low 100 range.

I have lost a total of 100 lbs over the 2 years and have maintained my
current weight for 10 months now.

Since Coriander came on the line for Doterra and the intro of Slim n Sassy, I have change my oils to:

3 drops coriander
3 Slim n Sassy
1 drop of Oregano
2 times daily morning and evening

I can't begin to tell you how my life and health have change for the
better. Both lifestyle and Doterra have changed my life completely. Thanks. If
I can help anyone please feel free to call me I would love to share my
experience and answer any of your questions. Thanks Again Vince Garcia."

Frankincense: Could it be a cure for cancer?

Back in November of 2010, I began working with a woman whose husband had.. had bladder cancer.  His Doctors were recommending a treatment where he would be purposely given tuberculosis. Having a 2 year old in the house that he would have to be quarantined from as well as the rest of his family, he decided to go a more natural route.  He began taking doTERRAs Lifelong Vitality Supplements, as well as Frankincense 2-3 times a day and a few other essential oils as part of a daily routine. Six months later he was giving the free and clear of bladder cancer and remains free and clear today.  I am forever amazed and blessed to be a part of these oils.  doTERRAs essential oils are the purest form of essential oil on the market today. You can take all of these oils internally! We source our oils from where they are indigenously grown, and  do testing on every single batch to make sure all you are getting is pure essential oil. No pesticides, weeds, fillers of any kind. Just plain amazing natural of the earth oils.  It makes these oils so much more powerful.  Please if you know anyone who could use these oils, contact me. I would be happy to send samples. These are absolutely life changing.

Frankincense: Could it be a cure for cancer?

Frankincense resin, and incense

The gift given by the wise men to the baby Jesus probably came across the deserts from Oman. The BBC's Jeremy Howell visits the country to ask whether a commodity that was once worth its weight in gold could be reborn as a treatment for cancer.
Oman's Land of Frankincense is an 11-hour drive southwards from the capital, Muscat.
Most of the journey is through Arabia's Empty Quarter - hundreds of kilometres of flat, dun-coloured desert. Just when you are starting to think this is the only scenery you will ever see again, the Dhofar mountains appear in the distance.
Map of Oman
On the other side are green valleys, with cows grazing in them. The Dhofar region catches the tail-end of India's summer monsoons, and they make this the most verdant place on the Arabian peninsula.
Warm winters and showery summers are the perfect conditions for the Boswellia sacra tree to produce the sap called frankincense. These trees grow wild in Dhofar. A tour guide, Mohammed Al-Shahri took me to Wadi Dawkah, a valley 20 km inland from the main city of Salalah, to see a forest of them.
"The records show that frankincense was produced here as far back as 7,000 BC," he says. He produces an army knife. He used to be a member of the Sultan's Special Forces. With a practised flick, he cuts a strip of bark from the trunk of one of the Boswellia sacra trees. Pinpricks of milky-white sap appear on the wood and, very slowly, start to ooze out.
Boswellia sacra
Boswellia sacra produces the highest-quality frankincense
"This is the first cut. But you don't gather this sap," he says. "It releases whatever impurities are in the wood. The farmers return after two or three weeks and make a second, and a third, cut. Then the sap comes out yellow, or bright green, or brown or even black. They take this."
Shortly afterwards, a frankincense farmer arrives in a pick-up truck. He is white-bearded, wearing a brown thobe and the traditional Omani, paisley-patterned turban.
He is 67-year-old Salem Mohammed from the Gidad family. Most of the Boswellia sacra trees grow on public land, but custom dictates that each forest is given to one of the local families to farm, and Wadi Dawkah is his turf.
Camel train
He has an old, black, iron chisel with which he gouges out clumps of dried frankincense.
"We learnt about frankincense from our forefathers and they learnt it from theirs" he says. "The practice has been passed down through the generations. We exported the frankincense, and that's how the families in Dhofar made their livings."
Salem Mohammed
Salem Mohammed: Young people prefer careers in oil or government
And what an export trade it was. Frankincense was sent by camel train to Egypt, and from there to Europe. It was shipped from the ancient port of Sumharan to Persia, India and China. Religions adopted frankincense as a burnt offering.
That is why, according to Matthew's Gospel in the Bible, the Wise Men brought it as a gift to the infant Jesus. Gold: for a king. Frankincense: for God. Myrrh: to embalm Jesus' body after death.
The Roman Empire coveted the frankincense trade. In the first century BCE, Augustus Caesar sent 10,000 troops to invade what the Romans called Arabia Felix to find the source of frankincense and to control its production. The legions, marching from Yemen, were driven back by the heat and the aridity of the desert. They never found their Eldorado.
Oman's frankincense trade went into decline three centuries ago, when Portugal fought Oman for dominance of the sea routes in the Indian and the Pacific Oceans.
The Haffa souk in Salalah
Salalah's Haffa souk: The place to buy Omani brands such as Royal Hougari
Nowadays, hardly any Omani frankincense is exported. Partly, this is because bulk buyers, such as the Roman Catholic Church, buy cheaper Somalian varieties. Partly, it is because Omanis now produce so little.
"Years ago, 20 families farmed frankincense in this area," says Salem Mohammed Gidad. "But the younger generation can get well-paid jobs in the government and the oil companies, with pensions. Now, only three people still produce frankincense around here. The trade is really, really tiny!"
Cancer hope
But immunologist Mahmoud Suhail is hoping to open a new chapter in the history of frankincense.
Scientists have observed that there is some agent within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. He is trying to find out what this is.
Giant censer in cathedral of Santiago di Compostela
The Catholic church mostly buys Somalian frankincense
"Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell's nucleus becomes corrupted," he says. "It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.
"Frankincense separates the 'brain' of the cancerous cell - the nucleus - from the 'body' - the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes."
Working with frankincense could revolutionise the treatment of cancer. Currently, with chemotherapy, doctors blast the area around a tumour to kill the cancer, but that also kills healthy cells, and weakens the patient. Treatment with frankincense could eradicate the cancerous cells alone and let the others live.
The task now is to isolate the agent within frankincense which, apparently, works this wonder. Some ingredients of frankincense are allergenic, so you cannot give a patient the whole thing.
Boswellia sacra grows in Oman, Yemen and Somalia
Other Boswellia species grow in Africa and India
The tree may have been named after John Boswell, the uncle of Samuel Johnson's biographer
In ancient Egypt frankincense was thought to be sweat of the gods
Source: The Pharmaceutical Journal
Dr Suhail (who is originally from Iraq) has teamed up with medical scientists from the University of Oklahoma for the task.
In his laboratory in Salalah, he extracts the essential oil from locally produced frankincense. Then, he separates the oil into its constituent agents, such as Boswellic acid.
"There are 17 active agents in frankincense essential oil," says Dr Suhail. "We are using a process of elimination. We have cancer sufferers - for example, a horse in South Africa - and we are giving them tiny doses of each agent until we find the one which works."
"Some scientists think Boswellic acid is the key ingredient. But I think this is wrong. Many other essential oils - like oil from sandalwood - contain Boswellic acid, but they don't have this effect on cancer cells. So we are starting afresh."
The trials will take months to conduct and whatever results come out of them will take longer still to be verified. But this is a blink of the eye in the history of frankincense.
Nine thousand years ago, Omanis gathered it and burnt it for its curative and cleansing properties. It could be a key to the medical science of tomorrow.

Recycle your used paper into pencils!

Ok I ran across this on Pinterest (which I love! If your not on there get on there!)  I have lately seen gourmet pencils that keep your child focused during class.  You could add any essential oil to the paper then put it through the machine! Reuse your used paper!  My kids would love making these!!! Maybe I could get my desk cleared off.....
I've got an oil for that!

Essential Oils for Asthma

Asthma is a condition that is frightening to watch and to experience.  Asthma is a condition that causes a person’s lung airways to constrict and narrow. This makes it very difficult to breath and can be very concerning at times. An asthma attack can be triggered by many things including pollution, smoke, allergens, toxins and exercising. These attacks cause tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing.
There are a number of essential oils that can support a person during an asthma attack. There are also oils that can be used during an attack.
Eucalyptus essential oil with it’s common eucalyptol aroma opens up the lungs airways and aids in breathing. You could use Eucalyptus essential oil topically on the chest and neck like you would use Vicks vapor rub. The aromatic benefits would last longer when applied to the skin.
Frankincense essential oil has very strong anti-inflammatory properties. This would make sense to apply to areas that are unnaturally constricting. Frankincense also is very calming for those that are experiencing an asthma attack.  This would be an oil to apply topically or apply to the hands and cup over the nose and mouth and inhale.
doTERRA’s Breathe essential oil blend is a combination of essential oils (laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, melaleuca, lemon andravensara) that have been studied for their abilities to open and soothe the tissues of the respiratory system. These oils are also tremendous at combating airborne pathogens, viruses, and bacteria that commonly cause an asthma attack. To use doTERRA’s Breathe essential oil blend, apply directly to chest and throat. You can dilute it with a carrier oil like doTERRA’s Fractionated Coconut Oil for sensitive skin. The vapors will help soothe and open the respiratory airways.
I have watched my niece and nephew go from gasping at the park where we had forgotten an inhaler to breathing easily just by cupping 1 drop of this oil in their hand and breathing deeply.  They have been able to completely stop using their inhalers and taking asthma medication at night for as little as .08 cents a treatment. 
If you, a family member or friend suffers from asthma, you owe it to yourself or your loved ones to try something natural. Give doTERRA’s Breathe Essential Oil Blend a try today!
If you would like a sample of this or any other essential oil contact me! 
Feel free to look through my website for other oils you might find useful. Doterra Living
