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.

Start walking for your dreams

Interviewed by Dominik Hoffmann @WasHeldentun

I want to share another beautiful and inspiring interview with you. The interview is in German, so I will summarise the most important insights and key learnings for you through this blog post:

Start walking for your dreams.

My message from the bottom of my heart to yours: Start walking for your dreams. I want to encourage you to live in alignment with your true self, so that you can live a happy and fulfilled life from the inside out.

Pin it

What do you truly want for yourself? What is your message to the world? Write it down on a (pink) post-it or several post-its and put them onto your mirror in the bathroom. No chance you’ll oversee that and hence you’ll be reminded of your message at all times.

Reconnect

We are all unique; we all have something beautiful to share with the world. If you don’t know what that would be at the moment, then reconnect with yourself. We all actually know who we are, however the challenge we are facing is that this awareness of our true self often gets lost and so over time we forget who we really are. You can visualise this as a dusted diamond. It is (still) shining underneath, but you need to de-dust your diamond in order to go back to your true self, to who you really are.

Want it

You really must want this though. If you don’t feel the desire to change your life to the better, if you don’t want to transform, if you don’t want to live a lighter and happier life, then it’ll be impossible to de-dust your diamond, so developing a real desire is key to your success.

Be brave

I know that we are surrounded by so many rules and regulations, by family and friends, by their expectations, by their desires. However, imagine this as a very tight suit (or dress) – wouldn’t that make you feel really uncomfortable and restricted? Wouldn’t you want to set free? Do you realise just how tight that suit is and how it restricts you from living the life you truly want to live? Yes? Then the suit will explode pretty soon and that is okay. Dare to step out of what is supposedly the norm. Be brave and start walking your path, not someone else’s. Question and reflect the existing. Because only then will you able to de-dust your beautiful diamond back to the shining bright light, that it used to be.

Start your personal development

Why? Because once you tune into your body, once you start observing your thoughts, once you feel your emotions, you’ll gradually de-dust your diamond and you’ll have beautiful Aha-moments. And you’ll realise that there are things within you that you want to look at. Because this thing is basically shouting at you. It wants to be seen, it wants to be set free. Trust me, this process is beautiful.

Create your dance for your life

I have the feeling, no, I know that everyone holds something very special, something that is only waiting for you to set it free. This is an active process, this doesn’t just happen, but if you truly want to transform and if you want to dance through life, then personal growth is the fundament that you need to build on. And from there, you can go anywhere. If you follow me on Instagram and read my other blog posts, then you will know that I am a passionate dancer. It is the one thing that has always – since I can think of – been within me and whilst I’ve been dancing almost all my life, I got a different understanding of the word ‘dance’. Dancing is not only about taking the right steps in the right order, it is about creation, putting your true self into these movements and aligning them with the rhythm of your life.

How you transform

I strongly recommend connecting with your body and tuning into your body, especially yoga helped me a lot to feel my body on a deeper level. It helped me to observe my thoughts, even though I came over thoughts that I really didn’t want to listen to. Painful thoughts. Sometimes shocking. Sometimes just ‘stuff’. I wondered ‘Is this really me?’ 

However, trust me, if you want to transform, there is no way around feeling all of it. You need to let it all come up again, so you can look at it and then process it on different levels, be it physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

But isn’t it great to know that you hold the power to observe and control your thoughts? Isn’t it amazing that you are a human being who can change massively by taking that first step of being aware?

Are you ready, but need help?

If you want to change your life, start walking. Reflect yourself, visualise your dreams and start walking for your dreams. I am more than happy to facilitate that first step for you. Come into my workshop FEEL UNDERSTAND HEAL #2 to feel your body, to understand your thoughts and to heal from within.

Yours, Nina
