The Killer $2.5 Billion Drug

Chances are you’ve popped a few in your lifetime.

Some companies even put a sweet coating on them, like candy.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) – better known as ibuprofen/naproxen – are marketed as safe and effective on pain.

And it’s true: They are … but only when used occasionally as directed.

NSAIDS are big business to companies: In the U.S. alone, more than $2.5 billion is spent per year by those seeking pain relief.

And that’s okay if it’s for the monthly headache.

But for those with a chronic pain condition, like rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune disorder, popping ibuprofen will hurt you more than it will help you.

Chronic use of NSAIDS has been proven to cause:

  • Kidney and liver damage, or failure.
  • Thinning of blood; internal bleeding
  • Ulcers

Kicking the Ibuprofen Habit Starts Here

My husband Nick and I have a secret weapon we use when tension, muscular pain, or joint pain hits: Deep Blue®.

It’s a proprietary, highly effective oil blend that dōTERRA® makes. You can buy it in a roller for your bag, a tube if you like lotion, or as a straight essential oil.

What’s in it? Check it out: wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile, and helichrysum.

These powerful and highly effective pain relievers work together to ease achy joints and sore muscles. Its effects are deep and penetrating … with sustained results.

Why is it so powerful? The main ingredients are highly concentrated, therapeutic grade essential oils.

Rub, massage, or roll on Deep Blue, and you will instantly release the magic of:

  • Wintergreen: cortisone-like properties
  • Camphor: anti-inflammatory
  • Peppermint: anti-inflammatory to damaged tissues; soothing and cooling affect that often helps arthritis and rheumatism
  • Blue Tansy: anti-inflammatory; pain reliever
  • German Chamomile: supports joint health and arthritis
  • Helichrysum: beneficial to the circulatory system, an imperative part of healing of the joints and muscles

Favorite ways for me and my clients to use Deep Blue are on:

  • Injuries to reduce inflammation and bruising.
  • Sore muscles after exercising.
  • My temples, forehead and back of the neck to relieve a headache.
  • Arthritic hands/knuckles to lessen pain from rheumatoid arthritis.

10 Essential Oils And Blends For Detoxing Your Body

The winter blahs have struck with a vengeance.

But I have a secret weapon – actually, 10 of them – to detox my way out of the gross, sluggish rut I find myself in sometimes.

Essential oils are my definite go-to for detoxing my body. They are, hands-down, spot on for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.

Oils, you say? Absolutely. Oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.

Here are my top 10 favorites and how I love to use them, especially when I’m not feeling my best.

(And if you’re not feeling your best, you should try my winter detox! I have a new one beginning March 4. Click here to find out more information on getting your energy back, your stress levels down, and unhealthy cravings out of your life … for good!)

 The following list features dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils, the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today.

My Favorite Oils

Lemon: for my lymphatic system. I add 2 drops of lemon to my water every morning. This citrus oil stimulates white blood cells to defend the body against infection.

Lavender: for supporting my adrenal glands. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion, restlessness, and increases mental activity.

Peppermint: for cleansing the lymphatic system, releasing weight gain and relieving sluggish digestion. When applied topically, Peppermint helps support the gallbladder; it decreases inflammation as well.

Lemongrass: for drainage within the body. Therapeutic properties of lemongrass include: analgesic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, astringent and sedative.

My Favorite Blends

Slim & Sassy: a pleasant blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger and cinnamon essential oils, formulated to help manage hunger, calm your stomach and lift your mood. It’s an ideal oil for cleansing the liver, balancing blood sugar, and improving metabolism.

DigestZen: my “go to” oil for complete digestive support. DigestZen is a propriety blend of anise, caraway, coriander, fennel, ginger, peppermint, and tarragon that supports alleviation from congestion, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, indigestion, motion sickness, nausea, and stomach aches.

On Guard: for immune support. It’s also a wonderful oil to combat bacteria; it can be used on soles of your feet.

My Favorite Oils for Emotional Support

Detoxes can bring out all sorts of emotions. Fortunately, there are oils out there to help you through.

Balance (grounding blend): Promotes whole body relaxation, evokes feelings of tranquility and balance. Two drops on the bottoms of my feet first thing in the morning and evening.

Serenity (calming blend): Serenity creates a sense of well-being and relaxation. Rub on the chest at night.

And last but not least, an oil just for detoxification!

Zendocrine: Zendocrine supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances by promoting a healthy endocrine system and liver function. I like to put a few drops in my water or smoothies or rub it directly on my belly.
