Immune System Help

This past week, our family got hit hard. First my son was under the weather and then my husband and finally me. Usually, my husband and I generally escape the petri dish that our toddler is, but not this time. Plus, being pregnant also makes it hard to be sick ( Yes, a new Ali will be joining us at the end of Jan – another blog post of how I am supporting my system using YL oils and supplements.

BombOK, back to immune system. Here is what we did to support our family…..For my husband and I, we started taking Inner Defense right away. Hubby took one every few hours. I only took two for the entire day as it contains Oregano, so I did not want to over do it.

I made an Immune Boosting bomb for myself and I only put Thieves, Frankincense and Copaiba in it ( left out the Oregano). I added Copaiba for supporting over all wellbeing and helping my system recover faster.

We also applied R.C on our chest, Thieves on the foot, Frankincense on the spine. We also diffused Purification, Lemon, Thieves EO in the shared common area, not all at once, but one at a time. At night, I diffused Thieves, Purification, Oregano, Citrus Fresh, Lemon EO – similarly, not all at once, but one at a time depending on what catches my attention.

Water2Another thing, my husband discovered  😀 is this process of ‘Steaming With EO’. Being Indian, we were used to the process of steaming when sick ( heating water up, adding herbs to it and inhaling the vapors from it by covering your head with a towel to keep the vapors in).

 

 

 

AsadTowelHe suggested trying it with EO’s. He added Peppermint EO or R.C or Oregano to the steaming water. It very much supported his respiratory system. I tried it as well. Peppermint EO was quite intense, but it really supported the respiratory system and cleared my nasal passage. Do write if you try this method and let me know what your experience is.

We also upped the dose of NingXia Red, Vit D, Omega Oils, Elderberry Syrup and Probiotics to help our bodies recover faster.

 

Anish&CapsulesFor the kiddo, pretty much the same protocol. Left out ingesting oils other than adding Lemon and Orange EO to his water. Needless to say, he is feeling much better in no time. I am amazed at the body’s ability to heal when the right environment is provided.

This is what he does with empty vegetarian capsules – fills them up with tiny beads  :-)
