People are becoming more aware of the toxins found in common, daily-use products and are seeking non-toxic, organic alternatives. This month I discuss the effects of these toxins, and offer solutions.

This month I feature the Nervous System Body Type, and the Frankincense essential oil which helps to address one of their core emotional issues.

I hope and trust that all topics I present this month will help you enjoy a healthier, happier life.

Health and Happiness,

Eliminate Toxins You Can Control

Are toxic chemicals in your environment stressing your body?

We are bombarded by more and more environmental toxic chemicals that are beyond our control. Many of these toxic chemicals are broken down in the liver, then eliminated through the kidneys and bladder. They can put more stress on the immune system, give rise to asthma or respiratory problems, skin allergies and irritations, cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, as well as pollute the environment. It is becoming more and more essential that we eliminate the toxic chemicals we can control by our choices.

There are some body types like Stomach, Adrenal and Liver that are more efficient in eliminating toxins than others. The more sensitive ones like Medulla, Lymph and Brain can experience digestive problems, immune system breakdown, lipomas, and brain fog. Learn more about your body type at Common sources of toxic chemicals are found in shampoo, toothpaste, body soaps, laundry detergent, dish soaps, cleansers, spot removers, sun screens, insect repellents, and even make-up.

How do you know if the products you are using are safe?

Collect the items from under your kitchen sink, your bathroom, laundry room, pantry and garage. Go to and see if any of the chemicals listed are found in the products you are using.

There is a new company which just launched September 1, 2014, Healthy Home Company, that is dedicated to taking the toxins out of our homes and replacing them with safe, effective ones. Membership is $9.95 per year, all orders over $50.00 are shipped free, and since the products come out of Florida, there is no sales tax. There are no minimum orders and no monthly requirements, meaning you can order on an as-needed basis. You also receive 10% on all orders placed by anyone you personally refer. More information can be found at

Here are examples of some of their products:
CLEAN is a multi-use household cleaner. It is a laundry detergent, dishwasher liquid, dish soap, cleans pots and pans, floors and tile, stainless steel, sinks, showers and tubs. Use Clean to wash your fruits and vegetables as well as mirrors and windows. Clean is made from organic, toxic free, natural ingredients that remove hard water and tough stains, yet is completely biodegradable and safe.
STRONG is for heavy duty cleaning and disinfecting. It is made from acetic acid (the core ingredient found in vinegar in its highly concentrated form), concentrated citric acid (derived from natural fruits, sodium chloride (salt), potassium acetate (a combination of potassium and acetic acid), to further enhance the product's ability to break up oils and organic materials. Strong can replace harmful chemicals in your garage and home including bathroom cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners and stain removers. It can be used on stovetops and ovens, grills, concrete and asphalt, outdoor furniture, boats, car chrome and for lifting stains from fabric (when diluted). Strong is known to be effective against many types of bacteria, mold and mildew.
MASCARA, especially Black, can be irritating. Healthy Home Company carries a Black Mascara that not only is free of mineral contaminants, but absorbs toxins and impurities while thickening and adding volume without clumping. Lipsticks, eye shadows, and foundations are also available.

Essential Oil of the Month: Frankincense

The job of the ego is to protect and it will protect in one of two ways - either by rolling over and being a victim or standing and fighting - giving rise to the feeling of F-you. Obviously neither one is a good option. The other side of F-you is Detachment - the way to achieve detachment is with the affirmation - I stand in my power. The emotion is stored in the body in the ego point located one inch below the xyphoid at the bottom of the sternum. The essential oil Frankincense holds the positive frequency and allows you to transmute the negative emotion. F-you is one of the core issues for the Nervous System body type as well as Balanced and Eye body types. The emotions associated with Frankincense are F-you and a feeling of being worthless which is stored in the gums.

Frankincense Essential Oil increases spiritual awareness, promotes meditation, improves attitude, uplifts spirit and centering. Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes which stimulate the limbic system of the brain (the center of memory and emotions) and the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands. The hypothalamus is the master gland which supports the thyroid and produces many vital hormones.

Other uses for Frankincense include:
  • Inhale, diffuse, or apply topically on the body to deepen breathing and induce calmness
  • Drop onto the skin to minimize or soothe scarring and stretch marks
  • Apply 1-2 drops directly onto a bug bite to help reduce itching and swelling
  • Apply 1-2 drops of frankincense to the face and neck daily to help repair sun damage and renew healthy-looking skin
  • Apply on face to minimize oil production and breakouts
  • Rub on gum, glue, or tough adhesives to remove from skin and household surfaces
  • Rub on the feet or the back of the neck to soothe overactive children
  • Drop onto minor scrapes and bruises to reduce redness and discomfort
