SKIN HEALTH? Let’s start with cleansing or detoxification!

“We are much better off taking a daily approach, and being supportive, to the cleansing organs that are designed to detoxify our bodies.”  Dr. David K. Hill

 

“The route of cleansing: Clear the bowels, Clean the blood/lymph, Rebuild.  Look to Essential Oils, Herbs, and Diet.”  Julia

 

“The Liver is the Foundation of Health”  A saying of Chinese medicine

  

 

SKIN is the last ‘ORGAN’ to receive any kind of nutrients you may take~

Anti Aging starts Inside out  for HEALTHY SKIN ~ is a MUST!!!

 

There are a number of cleanses associated with healthy detoxification of the body and essential oils.  Dr. David Hill in September of 2010 gave a presentation, with the introduction of a cleansing product from doTERRA named Zendocrine, on cleansing protocols and how they work in the body.  <Cleansing the Body, Dr. David K. Hill>

 

Nutritional Cleanses: 

A daily, gentle detoxification to provide support to the body organs that provide natural detoxification.

 

<doTERRA Zendocrine with essential oils> 

Zendocrine Detoxification Complex, a combination of whole food extracts to provide support for the body’s cleansing organs, the liver, kidneys, bowels, and skin.  Coupled with essential oils for additional support for the liver.

 

·    Zendocrine: 2 tablets daily, 1 morning, 1 evening

·    Essential Oils: 4 drops each geranium, rosemary, grapefruit, and clove in a capsule. 1 capsule daily.

In 2011 doTerra provides this blend premade in a blend named Zendocrine.  5 drops of this should be added to a capsule and taken daily in place of the oils above.

·    Time period: can be taken indefinitely on a daily basis or as a periodic cleanse for 2 weeks every three months.

Lemon liver detoxification: For some this is part of their life for increased energy, emotional stability, and pain.

·    1 tablespoon of organic lemon juice

·    1 drop each of lemon and peppermint essential oils

·    1 drop coriander essential oils if necessary for addictions

·    2-4 ounces of purified water

·    Daily, drink first thing in the morning

·    Time period: indefinite

 

<doTERRA Slim & Sassy>

Dr. David Hill suggests the blend Slim & Sassy as a metabolic blend can help the body eliminate apidose cells the body has formed to encapulate dangerous toxins in the body.

·    1-2 drops Slim & Sassy per 8 ounces of water

·    2 to 4 glasses per day

·    Time period: indefinite

 

<AromaTouch Technique>

The periodic AromaTouch Technique has a cleansing benefit to the body.  See this technique described in detail on other pages of this website.

·    daily, weekly, monthly depending on the health needs of the individual

 

<Detox Baths>

This is soaking the body in a hot bath with Epson Salts and essential oils.  Be sure and mix the oils well before entering the bath.  Couple with lots of liquids.

·    1 cup Epson Salts

·    4 drops each lavender, geranium, lemongrass essential oils

·    1 tub of hot water

·    soak 30 minutes or a long as comfortable

·    daily, weekly, monthly depending on the health needs of the individual

·    couple with lots of liquid (water, water with lemon or Slim & Sassy, etc.)

 

Cleanses:

A more aggressive, time period specific cleanse that may address one area of the body.

 

<Herxheimer reactions>

Since Isolated Cleanses are oft time an aggressive approach to cleansing body organs they can release massive quantities of toxins that have been within the body, especially from those that have had health problems.  These released toxins can cause uncomfortable reactions as they exit the body through the bowels or skin.  Some may experience digestive disruption, others rashes or other skin disorders.  The general advice is to slow the cleanse by reducing or spacing the cleansing agents to find a comfortable level, but to continue the cleanse.  Also consider a period of preparation with a nutritional cleanse as described above.

 

<doTERRA GX Assist>

GX Assist is a combination of essential oils and caprylic acid for cleansing the gastro intestinal tract.  Includes oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, and thyme essential oils.

·    3 capsules daily.  Best taken with meals.  If uncomfortable reactions reduce the number of daily capsules.

·    Time period: 10 days

·    Follow with PB Assist, a probiotic, to build healthy digestive functions

 

<Candida Cleanse>

This is a cleanse similar to the GX Assist but using individual essential oils.  It also is highly effective against Candida or yeast infections that affect many.

·    5 drops each melaleuca, lemon, and oregano essential oils in a vegetable capsule.

·    2 capsules per day for 2 weeks, rest 2 weeks, then 1 capsule per day for 2 weeks

·    Follow with a probiotic

 

<Lemon liver detoxification>

For those that will use the Lemon liver nutritional detoxification described previously  may want to begin that with this major cleanse of the liver.

·    Juice from 1 organic lemon

·    10 drops each lemon and peppermint essential oils, 2 drops OnGuard blend

·    Combine in 8 ounces of purified water

·    Daily, you can drink over a period of time

·    Time period: 14 days

 

<The Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet>  Stanley Burroughs (contributed by Robert James)

The Master Cleanser is a way to cleanse the body of toxins and reduce the cravings we experience from eating junk food. The cleanse involves drinking only lemonade made from fresh lemon juice, Grade B/Medium maple syrup, water and Cayenne pepper. No solid food can be eaten for the duration of the cleanse. The lemonade is best taken at room temperature. The master cleanse is technically not a “fast” and proponents say it is more gentle on the body because it does contain some essential vitamins and minerals. According to proponents it is recommended to be on the cleanse for a minimum of ten days, but it is not uncommon for people to stay on the cleanse for longer periods of time, even as long as 45 days. A good indicator of when you should end the cleanse is when the coating on your tongue clears up and your tongue is nice and pink in the morning. This indicates that your body has cleared out most toxins. But you must judge for yourself when to end the diet.  For me, personally, I experience a high influx of energy and a feeling of euphoria after about the 2nd or 3rd week.

The following quantities of each ingredient are required (some adjustment may be required for non-average sized people, large or small.) These amounts are for all the Lemonade you need for 1 day that is 2 quarts.

·    14 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

·    14 Tablespoons (Grade B) Maple Syrup

·    1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper – or to taste (as much as you can stand)

·    2 quarts of water

·    Drink at room temperature.

·    10 to 45 days are mentioned

Since there is no intake of solid food, special precautions are taken to avoid constipation. Laxative tea, which is optional, is taken every night, and in the morning a quick drink of 32 ounces of lukewarm sea salt water (about 1heaping  tablespoon or sea salt).  This passes will pass through the digestive system extremely quickly, be near a bathroom, you will need it usually within 30-60 minutes. Many individuals don’t require the laxative tea as long as the salt water has the desired effect. (and you can take it.  It’s not fun drinkng warm salt water)

It is essential to go off of the cleanse slowly. The lack of solid foods for such long periods requires careful breaking, as gut flora need to re-develop and mucus linings re-build. This usually involves drinking “full strength” juices for a day or two, while slowly adding in soups, then fruit, vegetables and nuts before resuming a regular diet. I would definitly use the PB Assist probiotics during the cleanse to help re-establish a healthy intestinal culture.  Some individuals have returned to their healthy diet the following day after stopping the program without any problems, but this is rare and not recommended especially for first timers.

Others also recommend coupling the Master Cleanse with Slim & Sassy or Grapefruit water (1 to 2 drops in 8 ounces of water) and/or the AromaTouch Technique.  Also topical application of essential oils directly to the area of the liver with warm compresses (helichrysum, etc.).

 

<The Lawton Foot Technique>  Dr. Sue Lawton (contributed by Pat Leavitt)

This is particularly good for pain as well as pulling toxins from the body.  Have on hand the following: 2 large 9×13 glass Pyrex baking pans and a pair of boot socks  

·    Place the pans in the oven, with the setting on bake at 180 degrees  

·    Sit your friend in a comfortable chair

·    Apply topically the oils of your choosing with a carrier for easy of spreading. Cover all of both feet

·    Citrus oils for detoxification

·    Frankincense or other antibiotic oils such as OnGuard, melissa depending on their specific needs.  

·    Place the heavy boot socks on each foot. If you do not have boot sock just put on double sport socks.  

·    Place the covered feet in the warmed Pyrex dishes and cover each foot with a warm moist towel, followed by a dry towel.  

·    While their feet are simmering, let them rest until the heat has left (usually about 30 minutes) or you can use those same oils and do a AromaTouch Hand Massage, or using the oils in the AromaTouchTechnique kit.

When you remove the feet from the pans, put on a regular pair of socks.   Don’t be surprised at how well they will feel when you have completed this procedure.
