5 x Immune System Boosters

As worries grow about the new coronavirus, online searches for ways to boost the immune system have increased massively. Vitamins? Essential Oils? Yoga? Food?

The bottom line is that there is no magic pill or a specific food guaranteed to boost your immune system and protect you from a virus. But there are real ways you can take care of yourself (self-care) and support your immune system in the best possible way to do its natural job; it may just need a bit more help right now.

So, here are my 5 x TOP TIPS for you to bolster your immune system and help the complex network of cells, organs and tissues in your body to work together to protect you from infection, i.e. physically and mentally.

SPEAK A MANTRA

Talking to ourselves in a positive and encouraging way helps our stress levels to reduce and hence lower the risk of infection. Any stress weakens the immune system and increases your risk. So, speak the following daily, several times a day, for as long as you feel like you truly believe that you say:

I am healthy. I am safe. All is good.

USE ESSENTIAL OILS

Natural essential oils are powerful physical healers. Some essential oils are considered to be 40-60 times more potent than herbs. They assist the body in fighting unfriendly microorganisms; cleansing organs, glands and body systems. They can balance body functions and raise the body’s energetic vibration. THIS is exactly what we need in times of a virus, in order to support ourselves from the inside and outside.

Here are the Top 5 Essential Oils (dōTERRA only) I recommend you get into your household right now:

  • Oregano: This is a powerful oil that acts as a natural anti-biotic. Moreover, it clears negativity and negative attachments that leave us drained, reducing our natural immune response. Application: Mix with fractionated coconut oil (FCO) and apply onto the soles of your feet. Article Number: #60204665
  • On Guard: This is the Oil of Protection. It shields you from bacteria, viruses and mould. It is your anti-viral blend. Furthermore, it supports you in warding off energetic parasites and other negative influences. Application: Mix with fractionated coconut oil (FCO) and apply onto your throat and chest. Article Number: #60204659
  • Lemon: The Oil of Focus doesn’t only support you in engaging the mind in the ‘right things’ right now, it also assists you to cleanse your body. Since the essential oils from dōTERRA are the purest on the market, you can also use them internally, for example in your water. This way you flush out any toxins from your body. Application: Put 1-2 drops into 1 litre of still water and drink throughout the day to keep your throat hydrated. Article Number: #60204656
  • Air: This oil is the Respiratory Blend, the Oil of Breath. This oil invites you to breathe in (positivity) and breathe out (negativity) and embrace life with openness. It supports the respiratory system by opening up the lungs and air passages allowing air and emotion to release. Application: Mix with FCO and apply onto your chest, back of neck and also onto the soles of your feet. Extra tip: Also helps people who snore ;-). Article Number: #60203777
  • Melaleuca: This oil is anti-bacterial and a disinfectant by nature. It’s also knows as tea tree oil. It helps to release micro-organisms in the body, but as the Oil of Energetic Boundaries it also assists in clearing toxic, codependent and parasitic relationships. Application: Mix with FCO and apply behind your ears. For energetic protection, put 1-2 drops undiluted onto the top of your head, crown chakra. Article Number: #60204660
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO): Dilution with a carrier oil no only increases the area of direct application, but also helps to protect your skin from potential sensitivity. For adults, essential oils should be diluted at least 25%, i.e. 25 drops on one teaspoon of carrier oil. Fractionated means the oil stay liquid at all temperates. It is the perfect oil for basic dilution, like described above. Article Number: #60204881

MINDFULNESS PRACTICES

Regardless of method, most mindfulness practices have a positive effect on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Think about meditation, breathing exercises and yoga and better and more sleep. Whatever you choose, choose what resonates the most with you and then practice it consistently to enhance the benefits of all other practices, such as essential oils.

COLD SHOWER

You may have heard about the Wim Hof method. Cold showers help reduce stress levels. Regularly taking cold showers imposes a small amount of stress on your body, which leads to a process called ‘hardening’. This means that your nervous system gradually gets used to handling moderate levels of stress. The hardening process helps you to stay calmer and resilient when stress hits you. And the virus is definitely stress right now.

More robust immune response. Scientific studies have found that taking a cold shower increases the amount of white blood cells in your body. These blood cells protect your body against illnesses and diseases. It is believed that this process is related to an increased metabolic rate, which stimulates the immune response.

DRINK WATER

In general it is recommended to drink sufficient water every day, to support your metabolism but also to flush out anything that your body doesn’t need anymore. Now, with any virus, it is even more important to drink sufficiently and regularly every 15-20 minutes to flush the virus out of your body into the gastric tract where the gastric acid juices will destroy the virus. Add Lemon Essential Oil to your water to support the cleansing process.

Stay healthy. Take good care of yourself. I am here for you.

You don’t have 20 sec? Think again.

I got a lot of enquiries lately on the ESSENTIAL OILS I’m using on a daily basis. I can just say that I love them & that they support me not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally.
.
Using dōTERRA essential oils has also taught me to connect even deeper with what’s going on inside me, because in order to use the ‘right’ oil, I need to check-in with myself first, to understand my needs and desires. .
To keep the information as simple as possible, I wanted to start by sharing with you my OIL ROUTINE.

1️⃣ I get up, go to the kitchen, put one drop of peppermint oil into the palm of my hands. Rub hands together, hold them in front of nose and inhale deeply for three times.
RESULT: Immediate energizer to wake me up. It’s also great when you feel tired in the afternoon.

2️⃣ One drop of Copaiba under my tongue supports a healthy immune and cardiovascular system.
RESULT: Soothes anxious feelings, also and especially preventatively.

3️⃣ After my shower, I put 2 drops of Balance oil on the soles of my feet. It has like the name suggests balancing properties.
RESULT: A rooting and grounding feeling.

4️⃣ Over the course of the day, I put 2 drops of Lemon oil, Grapefruit oil or Basil oil in 1litre of water. Lemon is cleansing and refreshing, Grapefruit supports a healthy metabolism and Basil is really good in states of exhaustion, overwhelm and fatigue. I also love Spearmint, it is the oil for speakers, for people who speak a lot, like I do in my coaching sessions and yoga lessons.

5️⃣ When I work at home, which I often do, I switch on my diffuser with an oil combination suitable to my needs, for example, energy, focus, calming, etc. Just go with the flow.

6️⃣ Towards the afternoon, I inhale Peppermint again and use additional oils as per my desired results.

7️⃣ In the evenings, I diffuse Lavender. I also apply Lavender onto my wrists and behind my ears before bed to aid a restful sleep.
RESULT: Calming and peaceful.

8️⃣ At last, I put one drop of Frankincense oil under my tongue to support my entire body and mind system. It is also the oil to support cell regeneration, and works well against wrinkles when applied to skin directly. RESULT: Less wrinkles, better skin.

If you now hold to an excuse of “Oh that’s time-consuming”, think again, because every step listed here literally takes about 20 seconds. BOOM‼️

From beauty marketeer to wellness ‘guru’

In interview with Fresh Beauty Fix

This month’s guest is Nina Sadlowsky, blogger, yoga teacher, intuitive coach and Wellness Advocate for dōTERRANina and I were colleagues at ADA, a company that partners with beautiful brands to provide beauty products to luxury hotels. We bonded over a shared love of dancing, exploring London and generally saying yes to things. Since then Nina has moved back to her hometown Munich, but we’ve kept in touch and continued to share our passions, travels and discoveries.

Nina-Sadlowsky-Beauty-Insider-FreshBeautyFix

1. Hi Nina, thank you for being my Insider Q&A guest this month. Tell me about your transition from beauty marketeer to wellness guru.

I graduated in business administration and directly landed my first marketing job at L’Oréal Germany after completing an internship. Three years later I was looking for a change in industry, but only 6 months into the new job I realised that my desire to change went deeper. What I was looking for was a lifestyle change, personal growth as well as living a happy, healthy and abundant life. Following a change in my personal life at the end of 2014, I got into yoga and meditation and ever since, I’ve started to actively design my life. I strongly felt an itch to make my passion my work whilst satisfying my travel lust.

As a result, I’m now a yoga teacher, training as a coach, and as a wellness advocate for dōTERRA my passion for natural health and beauty is now reflected in my work. I’ve been using essential oils for a long time, but when I recognized the amazing physical and emotional benefits of essential oils, I was completely sold on incorporating them into my practice to help others live a healthy, happy life. Hence, I wouldn’t call myself a guru, I see myself more as a facilitator, supporter and inspirer.

2. What does your role Wellness Advocate for dōTERRA entail?

It’s a very versatile role, that’s for sure. Being a wellness advocate means educating myself about essential oils, understanding their physical and emotional benefits and knowing their different ways of usage and application. It also includes educating others about the essential oils and sharing my knowledge and experiences in the oil classes that I hold or in one-on-one chats. It means connecting, coaching and networking with other people, through all available media, online and offline. And of course, it entails marketing, which brings me back to my roots, haha. Overall, I see my role as bringing more natural health to as many people as I can.

3. How do you incorporate oils into your yoga practice and yoga classes?

In my own yoga practice, I diffuse them, there are so many different combinations, ranging from calming lavender, invigorating lemongrass, cleansing lemon to peppermint for more clarity. In my yoga classes, I love using the oils for a massage whilst my students enjoy the end relaxation Savasana. My favourite oil for that is Lavender or Balance, an oil blend by dōTERRA. And, when mixed with distilled water, the oils are great to spray onto your yoga mat, too.

4. What oils would you recommend for dry/sensitive skin, oily skin and anti-aging?

Lavender is great for dry and sensitive skin, it soothes irritations, dry spots and has a calming effect on stressed skin. Basil is also nice for sensitive skin and soothes insect bites. Frankincense is a very popular anti-aging oil, as it regenerates skin cells, tones, tightens and can help with pigmentation. Tea tree/Melaleuca, Lemongrass and Ylang Ylang help with oily and acne prone skin. I’ve just mixed my own eye serum with 1 drop Frankincense and 1 drop Lavender diluted with coconut oil. Apply morning and evening and the fine lines around the eyes will fade.

5. What does a typical day look like for you?

I usually get up at 6.30am and open the windows in my flat for at least 5 minutes to let some fresh air in. I prepare my morning water with 1 drop of lemon and 1 drop of grapefruit oil and then meditate for 15 minutes followed by my yoga morning practice which takes me about 30 minutes. I take a shower finishing on cold and have breakfast (I love porridge with fresh fruit and peanut butter). Only then do I switch on my phone and run through any social media notifications. At 9am I open my laptop and start ‘working’ which can be anything from scheduling meetings, writing emails, and writing a blog article. Then in the afternoon I might prepare a yoga or oil class and do some studying on oils and coaching techniques. Plus, I teach yoga several evenings per week. I usually plan out my days or time slots during the day, so that I know for example Monday will be all about coaching, Tuesday is my day off, Wednesday I’m creating, Thursday I do admin and so on…

6. What exciting projects do you have coming up in the next few months?

I’m going to teach more yoga classes and tonight I’ll hold a three-hour workshop named FEEL UNDERSTAND HEAL in Munich combining yoga, mindset coaching and essential oils which is something new. My coaching training runs until September and as part of this I’m sharing my learnings and experiences with others on my Facebook page ninaspinknotes. My page and work is suitable for action takers, keen to drive their personal growth and committed taking that extra step to get closer to their true self. I also really want to get into public speaking, so I’m connecting with like-minded people who are already a step ahead of me. And very soon I will start my own podcast, which has been part of my vision for a while now. Stay tuned!

Yours, Nina
