Our family has had zero sick visits in 6 years.
Don’t get me wrong, when we’ve needed stitches or casts we gratefully go to the doctor. But we’ve just not needed to go in for sick visits in 6 years!
And as a family of 5 I think that’s impressive. And I also think it’s sad that it’s impressive. I wish it was the norm.
Let me explain.
There is no question that our healthcare system is broken. Families across the nation are spending so. much. money. for subpar medical care, it’s absolutely shameful.
Families pay through the nose for insurance, then again for co-pays, and then again on prescriptions, and then again in lost time at work or school…and are we getting any healthier? Are these families getting medical advice and care that is making them actually HEALTHIER? or is it just slapping a bandaid on symptoms?
I would argue vehemently that it’s the later. Because I cannot tell you how many times, as a young mother, I took my toddlers to the doctor with fevers and was told to give them a bunch of tylenol and wait.
I can not tell you how many times I’ve had a doctor give me a perscription for a symptom, never bothering to look at the root cause.
Let me pause and say that I have also had good doctors who listen and are cautious and responsible with their RX pad. But more often then not I’ve been met with symptom management, not healing.
So. How have we avoided needing sick visits for 6 years?
I’ve learned to get to the root cause and manage that myself. With essential oils.
Now, before you run away, please listen. I think 6 years of no sick visits is worthy of your time, don’t you?
We’ve discovered that the key is prevention. We try our best to live an active and healthy life. We use essential oils to manage stress, and get better sleep, and we use the highest quality supplements to help fill nutritional gaps (because news flash, with our modern ag soils…even the “perfect” healthy eater has nutritional gaps).
And we use essential oils to support our immune system so that it’s in tip top shape before we get hit with a bug. This alone has been a HUGE game changer for us. Using OnGuard daily has been a major key to this 6 year no sick visit streak.
Now, just because we haven’t gone in to the doctor for every sniffle doesn’t mean we haven’t gotten colds here and there. But when we do, we have tools at our disposal to manage, not mask, symptoms and support, not ignore, our bodies’ natural functions. Essential oils like OnGuard, can cross through cell membranes – this is clinically proven – which means it can get through to attack viruses. Boom.
That’s pretty awesome, right?!
Unless you’re seeing an integrative or naturopathic doctor, I’m guessing your doctor doesn’t have anything to help with a virus…am I right?
Here’s another example. Ear aches. Yes, we can use essential oils to get to the root of that too because most of the time that is a viral infection not bacterial. We can use Tea Tree around the ears to relieve pain and support the body in healing.
And that’s the key. Supporting the body in healing.
Not masking pain until it manages to get over something. Not forcing a change in a symptom with a drug. But using natural remedies to support the body in what it’s already trying to do.
So how have we avoided sick visits for 6 years and counting?
- We live an active healthy lifestyle.
- We do our best to eat well, and take high quality, bioavailable supplements to fill nutritional gaps.
- We manage stress and sleep with essential oils.
- We use immune system supporting oils (like OnGuard) daily.
- We use essential oils to support bodily systems at the root of any illness.
That’s the pattern we follow. The next step, is going to the doctor if our natural approaches don’t work. But as of yet, that hasn’t happened.
This approach to taking back the power in our own healthcare, has saved us so much time, money, and stress.
And I know it can for you as well. Whoever you are reading this, I know you’re struggling with something, and I know what it’s like to struggle with your health. It is seriously the worst! And this is why I do what I do. It’s why I share these oils, I genuinely care about empowering other families with these incredible gifts of nature. They are easy to use, safe, effective, and are pennies on the dollar compared to RX and OTC options.
So I want to invite you to learn more.
In this webinar I’ll break down some science, what essential oils actually are, how to use them properly, and which ones are most commonly needed for our everyday family healthcare needs.
