Symptom Care or Root Cause Care?
Everyone needs a safety net when it comes to their health. Most people think of their traditional medicine cabinet as their safety net. There are products for every ailment you could think of. The problem is that these things treat the symptoms. They don’t prevent a person from feeling poorly. These products just attempt to lessen the discomfort before things get worse. They are more like a bandage than anything.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have vestiges of a traditional medicine cabinet in my home. I’m not here to pounce on anyone who takes an OTC pill every now and then. Yes, I’ll admit it: I take those things every once in awhile when absolutely necessary! But you know what is my REAL safety net? My essential oils!
What’s a Health Safety Net?
What do I mean by a “safety net”? I mean having something in your life that you can rely on for REAL health results. Essential oils do that for me. I’m not claiming that they cure any diseases, but they certainly help me STAY my healthy self!! And, when I wish I could live inside a protective bubble – like right about now, as the weather is changing and peoples’ immune systems are getting weaker – they give me peace of mind that I will be okay.
I’m going to outline a few of my favorite “safety net” or “protective bubble” products from doTERRA. I have found that these essential oils and essential oil-infused products help me live at my optimal self!
Malori’s Safety Net Must-Have’s:
- Triease Softgels — These little capsules are filled with equal amounts of lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils. When the pollen starts flying (or even before), I pop one of these once a day. Alternatively, one could create their own capsules with 1-2 drops each of lavender, lemon, and peppermint. I’m just lazy and prefer the capsules to be pre-made. ;)
- On Guard+ Softgels — These are also pre-made capsules filled with the On Guard Protective blend, along with oregano, melissa, and black pepper essential oils. These are powerful essential oils that help you maintain natural immunity to environmental threats. I don’t take On Guard+ on a daily basis, but whenever I feel like I’ve run up against a threat, I start taking 1-2 capsules a day for no longer than 10 days in a row. They pack a punch without any icky side effects. I usually get back to feeling great within a short period of time!
- Breathe Respiratory blend — This is an essential oil blend and also comes in a vapor rub stick (shown on the righthand side of the photo). I use Breathe for helping my airways feel open. Breathe and Triease make a great combo for the weather changes in the spring and fall!
- Daily Nutrient Pack — These are two nutritional supplements that are probably my most important supplements in my toolkit! One of them, called the Microplex VMz, is a multivitamin and mineral complex. It’s formulated to be bioavailable – which means your body recognizes the nutrients and absorbs them efficiently. The other supplement is called the xEO Mega, which is a blend of essential fatty acids like omega 3’s and 6’s. It also contains essential oils that have antioxidant and immune boosting properties. If I could only take one essential oil product per day, I’d take the Daily Nutrient Pack!
Getting Started with Essential Oils
Using essential oils is never a 100% guarantee that you’ll never get sick. Nor should you avoid going to the doctor when it is warranted.
