Essential oils have benefits that are up to 100 times more powerful than their dried herb counterparts because of their concentrated property. Therefore, it’s no surprise that they can do incredible things to heal your aches, skin and even psyche!

Most essential oils are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, making them very suitable replacements for cleaners, wound treatment and salves. They also have a small molecular size, which means they are well-absorbed by the skin. Adding them to your lotions and salves induces healing, softening, and nourishing.

Essential oils create signals which cause the brain to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, which link our nervous and other body systems, to provide a feeling of relief. Our sense of smell is received by an organ in the brain called the amygdala that carries waves of perceptual recognition directly to the autonomic nervous system, which stores memories associated with the smell in the cells of our body.

A study was conducted by Vestn Otorinolaringol where a mixture of essential oils by inhalation was used with a group of 3-4-year-old children to prevent acute respiratory diseases and alleviate the symptoms of rhinitis. The essential oil blend was found effective with no side effects noted.

Energetic Qualities of Essential Oils

Science tell us that everything is energy, there is a subtle bio-energy that flows through all of life. The use of essential oils encourages your body to regenerate damaged cells, build a higher immune defense to viruses as well as sustain energy vitality.

Given the technology we have today, we are now able to measure the effect essential oils have on the body using frequency. We know that the human body’s vibratory range is between 62 and 68 MHz. The human body will start to mutate when the frequency drops below 62MHz, this is where we start to see colds, flus and diseases appear. If we combine this knowledge with the frequency an essential oil provides, we can start the work to properly re-tune the body to its original frequency.

 

Essential Oil Frequency
Rose 320 MHz
Lavender 118 MHz
Myrrh 105 MHz
Blue Chamomile 105 MHz
Juniper 98 MHz
Aloes/Sandalwood 96 MHz
Peppermint 78 MHz
Basil 52 MHz

Holistic Dentistry Can Help Reverse Cavities

Going to the dentist is a chore that almost no one looks forward to; it’s painful, expensive, and no matter what, you’ll probably be told you’re not flossing enough. Some dentists might tell you that your issues are a matter of genetics, but that’s probably not true. This led one dentist to the realization that the intrinsic problem is not a matter of legacy, but instead a matter of diet, realizing a way to reverse cavities simply by adjusting what one eats.

How to Get Rid of Cavities

We all know processed sugar and sweets are prime contributors to cavities, but there are also vitamins and nutrients that, when deficient in our diet, can lead to tooth decay. Calcium and Vitamin D are two of these nutrients we know are responsible for strong bones and healthy teeth. But what most don’t realize is that these vitamins can be neutralized by phytic acid in the digestive process. Phytic acid and phytates act as a storage mechanism of phosphorous in plants, but when consumed by humans they aren’t broken down, instead binding with other nutrients that neutralize them in the process.

So where do phytates come from? Grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and in lesser quantities, vegetables. But aren’t these types of food essential sources of certain nutrients themselves? Well, yes, and the answer is complicated; phytates are also known to have antioxidant properties, and their binding effect can be good for people who consume an overabundance of minerals like iron.

The big takeaway is that an overabundance of phytates in your diet can lead to weaker teeth and more cavities if not balanced with an abundance of specific nutrients. And our diets are packed with foods that contain these phytates. With the average western diet containing copious amounts of processed sugars, grains, and vegetable oil, it’s no wonder the dental industry is booming.

From a young age, we’ve been exposed to this type of diet, with the food pyramid’s foundation consisting of bread, cereals, and wheat. Although sugar is the smallest segment of the pyramid, it has found its way into almost all of the food we eat. At the same time, meat and dairy are also small segments on the pyramid, but according to research based on a diet optimized for healthy teeth, these food groups should be your foundation.
