Anti-Inflammatory Tonic

by Rebecca Geiger

January 17, 2017

I love this recipe! It tastes great and it really does help!

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne

Mix together in glass Mason jar. Pour into a shot glass, and shoot it! Store in the fridge for up to two weeks. Always shake before drinking because the spices will settle at the bottom.

This tonic is great for after a workout or whenever you feel inflamed (like after cheat day). For instance, if you have a sore knee, drink 3 shots per day for a week or until you feel better. Of course, always check with your physician before starting any new health regimen.

 

What is Systemic Inflammation?

What is Systemic Inflammation?

In the most basic terms, inflammation is an accumulation of fluid. This accumulation of fluid causes swelling, pain and discomfort. One of the most common forms of inflammation occurs in our joints and is known as arthritis. This form of inflammation is local, or contained to one or few areas. Similarly, there is systemic inflammation that is spread throughout the whole body. This inflammation cause swelling, pain and discomfort in our whole body. You will feel this in your face, your extremities, your abdomen, your hands and your feet, just to name a few.

Inflammation is one of the phases of healing in the body and is usually a good thing. The fluid is filled with while blood cells, hormones, and nutrients that work together to get rid of the illness or heal the injury. Systemic, or chronic, inflammation occurs when there is no obvious injury and the fluid still accumulates. The cells and hormones are there for one reason and when there are no invader cells to destroy, it may start attacking the healthy cells. You have no cuts, bruises or even a cold, but your body thinks it does. Over time, if this persists, systemic inflammation can lead to many illnesses and health conditions including heart disease, lung issues, diabetes, depression, cancer and more.

Reduce Inflammation with Essential Oils

by Cassandra Philpot

January 7, 2017

This month I will be talking about different essential oils that will help pain relief and reduce inflammation. There are many different kinds of oil that will help with pain relief and reduce inflammation. Rebecca and I use some of these oils in our massage to help with these issues.

Here is a list of oils that help with pain relief and reduce inflammation;

There are many different kinds of oil that will help with pain relief and reduce inflammation. They are:

 

  • Copaiba- stimulates circulation, natural steroid, powerful anti-inflammatory
  • German Chamomile essential oil – Pain relief and anti-inflammatory
  • Eucalyptus essential oil – Pain relief (sinus congestion and muscle injuries), also has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a warming oil and very strong, so you would want to dilute this oil with a carrying oil (Jojoba or coconut oil)
  • Rosemary essential oil – Anti-inflammatory and pain relief. You can inhale the oil to relieve headache or you could apply to trouble areas in the joints and muscles to reduce soreness.
  • Panaway essential oil – It is a Young Living blend and is amazing for pain relief. It has peppermint, wintergreen, clove, and helichrysum. Great for sore, overworked muscles and abdominal pain (use topically). Make sure to use a carrier oil.

These are just a few oils you can use on sore joints, stressed muscles, and inflammation. Most all of these essential oils you’ll want to use topically. Just make sure to use a carrier oil.

This is how you will want to apply the oils. First you’ll want to dilute the essential oil with the carrier oil. You’ll use 1-2 drops of essential oil, 3-4 drops of carrier oil, mix together, and apply to affected area. You can also lightly massage as well.

If you would like to purchase any Young Living essential oil, please free to ask Rebecca or myself for help with that. We would love to get you started on your Young Living journey today.
