New Year, New You with Essential Oils – Webinar Notes

We all want to be thin and look amazing in a swimsuit, right? But getting to that point can certainly be h.a.r.d. hard! Temptation for food that is less than ideal comes at us from all angles, and our jobs and lifestyles keep us sedentary. Then the weight control products that are out there are nothing less than dangerous – full of caffeine, ephedrine, frankenfood and more. But there is a better way! Come learn how essential oils and products infused with oils can help support your metabolism and endocrine system so you can be healthy and the right way from the inside out. No gimmicks, no crazy program. Just real food and products from nature herself.

New Year, New You with Essential Oils - a full class

I did a webinar on this and here’s the video!

And here are the slides and notes from the webinar!

(for the beginning of the webinar, please go see the slides from my Discover Essential Oils class, here)

No Diets Needed, Just Real Food

Just Real Food, Please!

The importance of eating real food cannot be understated when it comes to your health and weight management. No diets are necessary when you are eating food that your body can actually use as fuel!

Real food is defined as something that contains all real ingredients and in general, there are 5 or less ingredients. Focus on the INGREDIENT labels, not the nutritional labels. Know what you are eating!

Organic is best as when we eat foods grown with pesticides and herbicides, trace amounts do get into our systems and contribute to toxic buildup in our bodies over time.

Check out the EWG’s Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists – they are the foods that are grown with the most chemicals (like apples and berries) and should be avoided if not organic, and the ones that are safer to eat non-organic (like bananas and avocados).

Some tips: shop the perimeter of the grocery store where the produce, meat and dairy are.

Biggest complaint of eating real, organic food is that it’s more expensive. It’s not fair, but organic farms are not subsidized by the government and they have to pay extra fees and taxes. But it’s about priorities – many are happy to pay hundreds of dollars a month for TV, internet and phone services, but won’t pay more for good food. Something else in the budget may have to be sacrificed – but if you don’t pay for real food now, you’ll pay for it with your healthcare bills and quality of life later.

Young Living's Slique Tea and Slique Essence Essential Oil Blend

Slique Tea and Slique Essence

Slique Tea is an exotic drink from Young Living that has been formulated with natural ingredients to help support individual weight goals. This blend is rich in flavonoids, a dietary compound generally associated with helping maintain certain normal, healthy body functions. It also contains polyphenols, which may be useful as part of a guilt-free weight-management regimen when combined with a healthy diet and physical activity. This unique blend is enhanced with 100% pure therapeutic grade Frankincense powder.

Contains: Jade oolong tea, inulin, ocotea leaf (Ocotea quixos), Ecuadorian cacao powder, vanilla essential oil, frankincense powder (Boswellia sacra), and natural stevia extract.

Slique Essence Essential Oil Blend combines grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea with stevia extract in a unique blend that supports healthy weight management goals. These ingredients work together to help control hunger, especially when used in conjunction with Slique Tea or the Slique Kit. The pleasant citrus combination of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon essential oils adds a flavorful and uplifting element to any day with the added support of spearmint that may help with digestion. Ocotea essential oil adds an irresistible, cinnamon-like aroma to help control hunger, while stevia adds an all-natural sweetener that provides a pleasant taste with no added calories.

Digestion Help - Support Your Digestive System with the Cleansing Trio from Young Living

Digestion and Tummy Help – Cleansing Trio Kit

Digestion is key for proper weight management and overall health. It is so important that our bodies are able to assimilate the food we eat, otherwise it is stored in the cells as waste or eliminated. We cannot properly assimilate food that contains ingredients that are hard to digest (sugar, processed grains and dairy). A healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body.

Cleansing Trio™ Kit contains the products you need to begin improving your health through cleansing your system and eliminating waste by specifically supporting normal liver function.* Augmented with herbs that are rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, fiber, and essential oils, the Cleansing Trio will give you new energy and an improved sense of well-being.

Kit includes: Essentialzyme, ComforTone, and ICP.

Essentialzyme – Essentialzyme™ is a bilayered, multienzyme complex caplet specially formulated to improve and balance digestive health and to stimulate overall enzyme activity to combat the modern diet. Essentialzyme contains tarragon, peppermint, anise, fennel, and clove essential oils to improve overall enzyme activity, reduce pancreatic stress, and support healthy pancreatic function.

ICP – ICP™ helps keep your colon clean with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out residues.* ICP provides ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, and flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption, and help maintain a healthy heart.* ICP provides three grams of soluble fiber and one gram of insoluble fiber per serving.

ComforTone – ComforTone® (capsules) is an effective combination of herbs and essential oils that support the health of the digestive system by eliminating residues from the colon and enhancing its natural ability to function optimally.* Because it supports normal peristalsis (the wave-like contractions that move food through the intestines), ComforTone is ideal for strengthening the system that delivers nutrients to the rest of the body.* It also contains ingredients that are beneficial to liver, gall bladder, and stomach health.*

Love Your Gut with High Quality Probiotics

Life 5 Probiotics

Life 5 probiotic builds and restores intestinal health as it contains 10 billion beneficial live cultures per serving that bypass the stomach so they are fully absorbed in the bowels.

What’s so important about a healthy gut? The bowels are the source of health and vitality where nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. They are the command center of the immune system and the elimination of waste products. It the bowels are not working properly, optimal health is not possible and the body is vulnerable to a myriad of conditions.

Probiotics have been shown to assist the body in manufacturing B vitamins, improve nutrient absorption, support immune function and digestion, and reduce yeast growth.

Life 5 may be taken by healthy children and adults to help maintain optimal well-being.
