A garland of grace and a crown of beauty- Proverbs 4:9
I consider myself someone who eats a fairly nutritional diet, with not TOO MANY “bad foods”. As with anyone my metabolism has slowed down, so I don’t eat as much as I used to; therefore, I don’t get all of the vitamins and nutrients I should. For the most part, my body does best on intermittent fasting. What that means is, is that I generally only eat between the hours of 11am and 7pm. My meals are full of protein, vegetables, and fruit with minimal dairy or grains. That doesn’t mean I don’t consume dairy or grains- it’s just minimal….and have I mentioned my weakness is sweets?…Yep, often times I have to try to resist the goodness of sweets. (Sugar consumption depresses the immune system.)
Sugary drinks are not a battle for me because I don’t drink coffee or soda or even tea much. Water is my main choice, I just need to drink more often. I’m one of those that tends to walk around dehydrated.. Terrible, I know! Bedtime rolls around and I’m thinking oh man, I have got to drink a whole other bottle of water before my head hits the pillow! Which is crazy, because then I have to wake up in the middle of the night.. haha
So all that to say, most of us are nutritionally deficient for many reasons 1- our culture’s meal choices, 2- the decrease in food quality, 3- costs, 4- age/ stress/ etc are all factors that effect our body’s homeostasis which prevents our bodies from the maximum uptake of the good in the foods we eat. A lot of us don’t even realize how deficient we feel because it has just become our normal feeling.
First and foremost, with everything in life our frontline protection and defense is found in the word of God! Everything we do should be in line with the wisdom and the instructions God has given us. Apart from God, human effort accomplishes nothing, right. Right! God’s word contains the very essence of spirit and life. (John 6:63)
For me personally, I believe the chemistry of what essential oils were created to be are incredibly powerful tools that God created for us. Over thousands of years, the wisdom to use and compound these oils for medicinal purposes have been researched and utilized. We as believers are given the sound mind of Christ and that has been given for every area of our life.
A sound mind is given for the blessing over your spirit, soul, and body. Making decisions for your family, your job, your home, your health, your finances, should all be done with knowledge and the guidance from God. When I share about oils, it’s not about selling you these products. I have spent hours and hours and hours already researching Young Living essential oils and the science behind it and I haven’t even scratched the surface.
I think a lot of people, myself included at first, are hesitant about the efficacy of them. Is this just another company after my money, etc, but the more I looked into the company itself, the standards, the vision, the thousands upon thousands of testimonies, and the true grit hard work that was and is still put into this company I gave it a try.
I’m not at all saying that Young Living is the only brand in all the earth that God has blessed, that is absurd and ridiculous. What I am saying however is, personally I have seen and read ENDLESS testimonies, trustworthy studies, and evidence where Young Living was AND IS founded on the highest standards that a majority of the world’s companies do not uphold.
There are other wonderful companies across multiple areas of life that are founded on similar standards that I believe have held true to time because of the foundation from which they were created. However, as far as essential oils go, I have YET to find a single one that even comes close to comparison. Have you noticed that there is ad after ad promoting itself and degrading Young Living? To me that’s always a red flag against the company that is promoting such ad that is targeting another company (who doesn’t talk bad about other companies).
I’ve read about the founder of Young Living, Gary Young, and the “ahead of his time” wisdom he was given to pursue how to incorporate plants into medicinal purposes the right way with the best chemists and the best standards to get into the hands of ordinary people like us. That’s his heart and that’s still the heart of this on going 25 year plus industry! Alot of time went in to this company and the plants- the land, the harvesters, the distillation process, etc!
My highlight today is this whole body supplement Ningxia Red that breaks down cost wise to less than $3 a day. My girls call it my vitamin juice. I drink it cold in the mornings and it is delicious! 1 shot of this “vitamin juice” is packed full of wolfberries and other powerful ingredients that supply the body with vital phytonutrients that supports:
All 9 systems of the body including the immune system,
Increased energy and strength,
Protects DNA and cellular functioning,
Blood glucose stabilizing,
Blood pressure and cholesterol maintaining,
Memory and cognitive thinking,
Combatting premature aging,
Phytonutrients are plant produced chemicals that plants use to stay healthy; these have been proven to help keep our bodies healthy too.
Ningxia Red ingredients include a whole fruit puree of the super fruit wolfberry and juices from other superfruits such as aronia, plum, blueberry, cherry, and pomegranate. As well as other antioxidant ingredients like pure vanilla extract, lemon, orange, yuzu, and tangerine. All without caffeine, sugar, or other artificial stimulants.
Wolfberries aka goji berries have been known as the vitamin capsule in fruit form.
This super fruit’s mineral profile and mineral balance is without equal in the plant kingdom. It is the most nutrient dense whole food source on earth. These berries are sourced from the Himalayan mountains, which are known to be one of the richest sources of minerals and organic nutrients found on earth.
-Wolfberries have been found to have the highest known whole food source of potassium. Potassium is one of the most important minerals to human health!
-Wolfberries contain 3x the vitamin C oranges do!
-Wolfberries contain all19 of the essential amino acids, 100% DV IRON, and has one of the highest percentages of fiber! 21% fiber by weight, which is more than oat bran (which is great for me because my body doesn’t handle today’s cultured oat bran well)
-Wolfberries have one of the highest known ORAC scores, ORAC= Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. In other words: a test that determines a drink’s ability to neutralize dangerous superoxide free radicals, it scores a food’s antioxidant’s strength.
Superoxides are directly related to common diseases like cancer, asthma, heart disease, and more.
