Unfortunately I know many people particularly ladies who suffer with acute as well as chronic Acne. We know simply that what the ultimate cause of acne is the pores become clogged which then traps bacteria inside the pore, causes infection, the hair follicle channel ruptures and the infection spreads as a result of an inflammatory response of the body forming larger areas of irritation. 

There are many different factors that can cause Acne; the type of skin you have; it can be hereditary; hormone levels (teenage years); changes related to menstrual cycle; pregnancy (my precious wife suffered with Acne after becoming pregnant); stress; medications such as birth control; cosmetics (most contain harmful chemicals that should never be put on your skin); hair care products; excessive moisture from perspiration or  a high humidity climate (good old SC) may compound the problem.  Digestive issues can be a direct reason why some people have Acne issues. You are and will look like what you consume. But that is not always the case.

Now what can we do to improve or possibly get rid of the problem?  You should be taking a high quality vitamin supplement (doTERRAS Life Long Vitality) along with a high quality Omega 3 which we know are great for our skin condition. I would also recommend our PBassist (probiotics) to clean up the intestinal tract. A clean diet is highly recommended (stay away from sugar and dairy).  The most effective CPTG Essential Oils to use would be Clearskin, Geranium , Melaleuca, On Guard and Purify. I would not put any of these oils directly on your skin without diluting with a carrier oil (Fractionated Coconut Oil or extra virgin coconut oil) and I would start by using a small amount to slowly introduce to your skin. The best way to start would be to do a consultation along with a Bio Scan to try to determine which ones would work best for the individual. We are all different and have different chemical constituents.

Please forward to me any questions you may have about any of the info in this topic or any others on this site. Let me know if you would like a consultation concerning any particular issue you are dealing with. It will always be confidential. Also a reminder, I am not a doctor and always recommend you consult with your physician particularly if you are taking any scrips. My purpose is to letting people know there is an Organic Alternative available to those who refuse to be part of the ordinary culture. GOD bless and I look forward to helping many.   James 5:14

Connie shared with me that you ladies in our world of health and well-being wanted specific information about monthly cycles, menopause and hot flashes. So here goes, but remember; always consult with your physician regarding any health issues. We are not doctors here--just people who believe there are alternative organic methods of health care. 

Let’s start with menstrual issues. You may suffer from cramping, headaches, constipation, backaches or bloating. Some excellent long term solutions have been provided for ladies using our Life Long Vitality supplements (see Wills health tips on LLV)and for Hormonal Balance using Solace (a unique blend of essential oils specifically blended to help alleviate symptoms often associated with PMS, menopause and aging), Phytoestrogen Complex (designed to help maintain a healthy estrogen balance) and Clary Sage essential oil which has been found to help with many of the issues mentioned here specific to females health. 

Symptom relief: 
  • Painful periods /cramps: Clary sage, Cypress (a natural diuretic), Deep Blue, Peppermint, Rosemary and Solace.
  • Heavy Bleeding: Clary Sage, Cypress, Rose and Solace.   
  • Irregular Periods: Clary sage, Fennel, Peppermint, Rosemary and Solace.   
  • Absence of Periods: Basil, Clary Sage, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile and Solace.  

PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) is thought to be caused by the fluctuation in hormones during this time or by the way progesterone is broken down by the body. Caffeine from soft drinks or chocolate may worsen PMS symptoms.  Solace and Clary Sage may be helpful with PMS.  Hot Flashes are generally associated with premenopause and menopause.  Some recommendations would be Solace, Balance, Clary Sage and Peppermint. 

In conclusion, take note these are all recommendations of oils and supplements that may help when experiencing these particular issues. No two people are alike and all of our body chemistry is different therefore where one oil or oils may work well for one person another may work better for someone else. To be more specific for you I would be glad to meet with you and do a Bio-Scan which measures 76 bio markers (electrical impulses) in the body and tell us which oils and supplements would work best for you. It not only measures Acute symptoms but Chronic symptoms as well. There is a $25 fee for this service but I will wave it if you place an order of $100 or more and you will also receive a follow up scan in two months. 

And remember if you don’t do something about your health, WHO will?  GOD bless.

The rock hard foundation to any Health and Wellness program is going to be Nutrition. 80% of how well your body ( temple ) looks, feels and performs comes from what you consume. Only 20% is going to come from physical training and activity on a regular basis. Well because it is virtually impossible to get all the Vitamins, Minerals and Nutrients from our food sources anymore because we have depleted the soil and have bombarded it and our foods with pesticides, herbicides and all kinds of chemicals I can't pronounce much less spell we need to supplement ( provide our bodies with what it needs from another source ) . So we must choose a Vitamin supplement that will provide our bodies with the nutritional foundation it requires. It must work for us over the course of our busy days, help provide us with energy, help fight off illness, body inflammation and be easily, efficiently absorbable. I have taken different Vitamin supplements over the years but none compares to doTERRAS Lifelong Vitality. They are made from whole food extracts so the body recognizes it as food and absorbs all the way to the cellular level for maximum Health and Well Being. LLV provides your body with all the Vitamins, Minerals, Nutrients, Omega 3's from land, marine ( the purest form of fish oils ), includes 9 CPTG essential oils ( including Frankinscence ) and Alpha CRS plus ( cellular vitality complex ) which protects the cells from free-radical damage. There are so many benefits to taking these powerful supplements we would be here all day. So I will tell you after taking LLV for 6 months my arthritis literally was gone and has not returned, my and my wife’s energy levels are off the charts and along with a healthy nutritional and exercise program I am off the blood pressure meds. What a blessing. So in conclusion I would encourage all of you ( compare with what you are currently using as I did ) and take  these fabulous supplements for a 6 month ride, they'll change your life. You can go to my online store to purchase products ( you do not have to buy anything ) and check them out or simply contact me and I will be glad to get you started on a greater pathway to Wellness. GOD bless.  James 5:14

How many people do you know who don’t like drinking water? Water is GOD’S organic antioxidant. Obviously we are intended to drink it. Did you know you are 75% water from the neck down and 90% water from the neck up? Hmm so does it not make sense we should drink half our weight in ounces every day!!! 

I have to drink 100 ounces a day and I do almost every day. Some days it’s hard but it can be done. Where there’s a Will there's a way (no pun intended). Also if you drink one soda (which is totally Acidic and your body was designed to be Alkaline, the Acid in the soda will pull Calcium out of your bones which in turn can cause Osteoporosis) it will take 30 8oz. cups of water to neutralize it and get you back to an Alkaline state. Those flavored waters you can buy are usually full of hidden sugars, beware. 

So what can you do to flavor your water? Add doTERRA’S Citrus CPTG Essential oils to your water. All you need is 2-3 drops in 16-20 ounces of water of Lemon, Lime, Citrus Bliss, Grapefruit or Wild Orange and the benefits you will receive are awesome. 

Have a blessed day and remember: “If you don’t do something about your health, WHO Will". James 5:14

Want an Organic healthy energy drink without all the chemicals and additives your body does not need or does not know what to do with? Just add 2-3 drops doTERRA Peppermint CPTG Essential oil to your water, shake and drink. It will give you natural energy, help with your digestive health, cool your body down naturally and if you are dealing with hot flashes it will calm them down too. Now let’s get to a class with Connie, drink our Peppermint, and burn some calories. 
GOD bless James 5:14

Do you get cramps regularly? A lot of people do. Usually it’s a simple matter of dehydration. Know how to fix that? WATER-WATER-WATER. 

That’s right . When you finish a hard workout or a long cardiovascular training session you can deplete your hydration if you are not constantly consuming water. A good rule of thumb is if your urine is not clear all the time you need to drink more water. Buuuuut if you happen to get a cramp, a drop or 2 of doTERRA’S CPTG Lavender Essential Oil right on the cramping area will ease it immediately. Also lemongrass with Peppermint, Marjoram or Deep Blue essential Oils will help. Remember, “ if you don’t do something about YOUR health, WHO will ". GOD bless. James 5:14
