Healing Asthma Naturally: Using Essential Oils and NingXia Red

Healing Asthma Naturally: Using Essential Oils and NingXia Red
Asthma is a complex respiratory condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the airways become inflamed, making breathing difficult and causing symptoms like wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness. Natural remedies like essential oils and NingXia red supplements can help manage symptoms and promote healing. In this blog post, I will share how these two natural remedies can be used to alleviate asthma symptoms and support overall respiratory health.

Essential Oils for Asthma: 
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that have been used for centuries for various health purposes. Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that help open up airways and reduce inflammation. Some of the best essential oils for asthma include the blend RC, Raven and Thieves, and the single oils Frankincense and  Lavender. You can use these oils by diffusing them in the air, applying them topically to the chest and neck, or inhaling them directly from the bottle.

NingXia Red for Asthma: 
NingXia Red is a powerful antioxidant-rich supplement made from whole Ningxia wolfberries, blueberries, cherries, pomegranates, and other superfruits. It contains high levels of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and amino acids that can help boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Research has also shown that the antioxidants in NingXia Red may protect against oxidative stress and respiratory infections. You can take NingXia Red by drinking it straight or mixing it with your favorite beverage.

The Benefits of Combining Essential Oils and NingXia Red: 
While both essential oils and NingXia Red have individual benefits for asthma, they can also be used together for a more comprehensive approach. Combining essential oils with NingXia Red can help reduce inflammation and open up airways. Adding essential oils to your NingXia Red can also help soothe the respiratory system and promote relaxation.

Other Natural Remedies for Asthma: 
These include breathing exercises like yoga and deep breathing, avoiding triggers like dust and pollen, and maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine. It's important to work with a functional practitioner to create a personalized asthma management plan that works for you. 

Another Serious Consideration:
Using toxic chemicals to clean your home is always one of the first places to consider a switch. Daily use of these chemicals has a cumulative effect on the body. Ditching these and converting cleaning products to natural options is a priority for anyone who suffers from a respiratory condition. My favourite cleaning product is the thieves cleaner; along with baking soda, vinegar. You will be amazed at how much can be accomplished with just a few ingredients.

Safety Precautions: 
While essential oils and NingXia Red are generally safe for most people, it's important to use them responsibly and under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Essential oils should be diluted before application and should not be ingested unless directed by a qualified practitioner. NingXia Red may interact with certain medications, so it's important to speak with your doctor before adding it to your supplement routine.

Asthma can be a challenging condition to manage, but by incorporating natural remedies like essential oils and NingXia Red, you can support your respiratory health and manage symptoms more effectively. Whether you're looking to open up airways, reduce inflammation, or boost your immune system, essential oils and NingXia Red can be powerful tools in your asthma management toolkit. However, it's important to work with a qualified practitioner to ensure safe and effective use of these remedies. With the right support and a holistic approach, you can take control of your asthma and live a healthier, more vibrant life.

Paula's STORY (part 2)

Paula's STORY (part 2)
With Part 1 as the BACK story, (sorry I did not say this was going to be a short one) I found myself in a pandemic. At the start of the pandemic, I felt a strong sense of fear in everyone and although I was encouraging people to trust their immune systems, I was met with some upset; however many more in secrecy with bravery. Eventually, a rather fast vaccine came out into the market and everyone was eager to return to their normal lives. I was one of the very last that I knew of to get the vaccine. I went along with the mandates, so I could teach (getting a medical exemption for the 3rd booster shot) because I knew my body was saying NO more.

My grandfather died of heart condition, it runs in our family and after my 2nd jab, I found myself rubbing my chest area repeatedly to ease a pain. I also felt restriction in my legs and just had no energy to do the type of sport I used to. There were days I would try to hike Tiger's Head (our local uphill trail) with Ross and had no choice, but to turn around as my blood pressure was climbing like a rocket ship. This was not normal for me. In October, after my mother in law died unexpectedly after flying back from a trip (Dubai to UK) she started to experience pain at the train station and only made it as far as the hospital due to an artery dissection. This was just one more nudge for me to stop treating my pains as a mere, this is just in my head. I stuck my head into researching again, but this time about how I could detox myself from the C**** protein spikes. The receptors sites for these lie around the heart, brain and gut and I had to find something to decrease this inflammation.

I watched hours of a health documentary series on detoxing from these protein spikes, researched for weeks and then I came across this research paper that was completed late in 2022. I read it over and over again, and knew that this ningxia red was powerful because of what I had been through with Kieran. I also knew that Ross and I felt better every time we drank it, and so we always kept it in the fridge for those moments when we needed an extra energy boost. 

I dug in and came across Martha Krejci's page about the 11 Day Jumpstart program and how it addresses inflammation. I was accepted into her group and it was the testimonies that I read that struck me. That is when I  knew I needed to jump in. I committed myself to the 11 Day Jumpstart and here is what happened: my mood changed (Ross says I am a different person), my weight shifted, my heart pains stopped and I don't have to rub by chest to ease it anymore, my energy level was out of this world, my vision improved and well, I got my best self back. Last week, was the first time in over 2 years, I could climb Tiger's Head without having to turn around because my heart was about to explode. The numbers used to be so scary. But this time I was able to keep up with Ross and I was feeling good. He was ecstatic that we finally could complete this hike together and when he turned to me and said, "Wow, look at you, you can do this for the first time in years," I realized how my health was affecting everyone.

You know, this story is mine and I never really intended to share it publicly, but as people have joined me on this jumpstart I had this epiphany that some of you needed to hear it. A few nights ago, I received a text message from an old colleague who told me that she was feeling more energetic and wanted to continue this journey and wanted to know how to do this. A few minutes later, she messaged telling me that she had a heart attack after her vaccine and that NHS could not confirm it was the vaccine because they CAN'T. This is certainly her story, but it was the PUSH I needed to write and share MY story.

I thought I was ok, but I wasn't myself. You are not a second fiddle, you are a PRIORITY, if something does not feel right- TRUST yourself. This year I made huge investments in all aspects of my life, I am not sure where I would be if I hadn't. Sending each of you a message of health and wellness, to become the best version of who you are meant to be. My prayer is that those who need to give themselves care find the desire to Jump In.

Paula's STORY (part 1)

Paula's STORY (part 1)
Writing this feels like a long time coming, not sure why it took me so long to get here, but I guess I needed to know for sure. The one thing I have been driven to do is help other parents who have children suffering with the same condition my son had, but I have not been able to break through and accomplish this, instead I seem to be helping other people with their own medical conditions. 

For those of you who don't know, my son Kieran (now 10 years old) suffered from a condition for over 2 years. For the few months, we thought it was a virus that he had not dealt with and so I kept on treating him with natural therapies and they worked well and I was so pleased we did not have to use anything conventional. As time went on, into more than a year of fevers, mouth ulcers, joint pains and emotional roller coaster tantrums I realized this was not a virus, this was something more.  I kept an open mind and went to every medical doctor I could to get answers. We were referred from one doctor to the next, we had overnignt stays at Adventist Hospital and a team doctors would come back to me bewildered. I put faith in the medical system because I felt I had no other option at this point. 

I was grateful that I had just resigned from my full time teaching job, there was no way I could invest the time I did to research, take him to appointments, run around for tests we did without having time on my side.  Ross (my husband) was working and I was fighting with our health insurance to get the proper tests  we needed to receive answers. I spent more time on the phone dealing with this situation, than I have in the last 10 years.

Kieran suffered, we suffered, our family was torn apart on weekends because one of the adults had to stay home with him. His fevers would run for a week in the beginning and his moods and lack of energy would keep him from wanting to join any activities. He lost his circle of friends, they stopped calling. He lost confidence at school and did not understand what was happening at school as he was missing so many lessons. Nothing was making any sense to him. And well, his emotional tantrums, those were a pile of fun. The number of family vacations that kept me trapped in a hotel room treating his symptoms are all things I am grateful not to have to attend to on a regular basis now.

On one of the nights I was researching, I came across a facebook group of parents who had children with the same symptoms and low and behold I discovered a name for this very syndrome. Finally, I knew what I was dealing with. I had a son with Periodic Fever Syndrome and I was to discover that there are not many doctors that have even heard of it, let alone know how to deal with it. It was still a BINGO win ! It was time to find someone who did and who could help me with the genetic testing.

I was advised that there was no known cure for his condition, but that there were medical drugs I could use to stop the fevers asap; however the side effects of these drugs meant that he could potentially go blind. My answer was 'NO' in a matter of seconds. I always tell my students, when someone tells you there is no other solution, do not accept that as your answer, as there is always another option. I stuck to my own words and decided I would go back to leaning on my research. 

The facebook groups for Periodic Fever Syndrome helped me to get him on the road to healing. We implemented cherry tart enzymes, vit d3/k2 and vitamin c. It helped, but there were not the ultimate fix. I later added zinc drops for his immune system after speaking to a friend and I noticed the fevers started to appear with a longer duration between them and for a shorter duration. Instead of a week, he would recover in 3 days. But something was still missing. 

When my mother was diagnosed with cancer, I started to use Young Living products on her and the blend Aroma Siez was the only thing that helped ease her pain. I was grateful for their products and knew that there was something special about their quality, I pushed aside any negative comments to trust what I experienced, I decided to become a regular user of their products and even bought the supplement Ningxia red. I had some sachets on hand and put them in the freezer for Kieran to enjoy sucking on to cool down his temperatures and he grew to enjoy them and so this became a part of his daily routine. This is when I noticed that months had gone by and for the first time in 2 years, he had not had his monthly fever. At this point, I could actually tell you the day the fever would trigger, but that day just came and went and he was returning back to his old self.

I was recording his daily food intake, supplements and realized that ningxia red was supporting him in the way he needed. Although, he is no longer having it daily, if too much time goes on without taking it, the first thing that will appear is a mouth ulcer and this is our window of opportunity to know we need to get on top it and the first thing we reach for is ningxia red. There is an immediate change in his physiological and psychological state after consumption. It really is our miracle. 

We are on our third year of recovery and Kieran is just like any other kid, but he does need to supplement; this is not negotiable.  He has his energy and zest for life back. I could not be more grateful to circumstances that revealed themselves to us to know what he needed. It saved him and our family. We aim for at least 3 shot glasses a week for his immune maintenance.

Need help with intermittent fasting?

Need help with intermittent fasting?
Intermittent fasting is a type of eating pattern that involves alternating between periods of regular eating and fasting. It has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many people claiming it can help to improve health and weight loss. However, it’s important to make sure you understand the basics before taking up this approach to nutrition.

Intermittent fasting, when done right, can be a powerful and advantageous approach to health and weight loss. By decreasing total calorie consumption while providing access to stored energy in the body, intermittent fasting not only allows you to burn fat faster than other dietary techniques but also helps diminish inflammation and balance hormones — benefiting your overall wellbeing as well as metabolism.

Intermittent fasting is not a one-size-fits-all approach; it may take some time before you find the right pattern that works for you. In general, there are two basic types of intermittent fasting: time-restricted eating and alternate day fasting. Time restricted eating involves eating within a certain window of time, such as 8 hours a day or 12 hours a day. Alternating day fasting involves alternating between days of eating and not eating.

When starting out with intermittent fasting, it’s important to focus on the basics. Make sure you stay hydrated throughout the fasting period, as well as keep your meals nutrient dense and balanced. If you’re unsure of what to eat, try focusing on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds including a meat, fish or veggie protein. It’s also important to listen to your body- if you feel overly fatigued or experience low energy levels during the fasting period, take a break and adjust your fasting schedule.

It’s important to remember that some things can break a fast. Eating anything sugary or processed will cause your body to switch from burning stored fat to burning the food you just ate, thus breaking the fast and making it less effective. Caffeine can also disrupt insulin sensitivity, so limit your intake during fasting periods. Additionally, any form of calorie-containing beverage, including herbal teas and juices, will break a fast. Some texts say that it takes 50 calories to break a fast.  

With the right guidance and an understanding of how it works, intermittent fasting can be an effective approach to improving your overall health!  The Jumpstart program uses a daily 16:8 fasting window which has become increasingly popular and we have incorporated Ningxia Red to supplement the body throughout the day to keep you satisfied.

Ningxia Red is a great way to replenish your body with vital nutrients and antioxidants, helping support energy levels during fasting. The combination of intermittent fasting and Ningxia Red will help maximize the benefits of this weight loss/ decreasing inflammation strategy by maintaining energy and focus without compromising on nutrition.  

So if you are looking to give intermittent fasting a try, give it a go with the Jumpstart program and give your body an extra boost with Ningxia Red!  You won’t regret it.  It is an easy to follow 11 day plan with alternative recipes that can be swapped in including a serving of dessert a day if you are so inclined. The most important aspect is that you will find a positive and supportive community encouraging you.
