Natural Solutions

Over the past few years, I've had a lot of people ask me what I did for my Lyme treatment. They see how well I'm doing and want to know what I did to feel better. As most of you know, for the past 6 years, I've been teaching people how to use natural health solutions. I use dōTERRA Essential Oils and products to help my immune system stay strong and thrive.

First, my son and I did a nebulizing treatment. This treatment is a proprietary combination of natural inorganic compounds and organic molecules that possess inherently antimicrobial properties. We nebulized for 60 days. Our doctor recommended this treatment and I'm so glad he did. If you want more info in this treatment, email and I'll send you the contact info.

After the nebulizing treatment, our bodies needed time to heal and repair, this is where essential oils came in.

First, I knew we needed nutrients, omegas, and cellular vitality. We had already taken dōTERRA's Lifelong Vitality supplements before, so I knew I needed to get back on them once my nebulizing treatment was over.

My body needed good nutrients and minerals. dōTERRA has developed the most advanced food nutrient complex in the industry. Microplex VMz Food Nutrient Complex is a whole-food formula of bioavailable vitamins and minerals that are deficient in our modern diets. It was designed as a comprehensive dietary supplement to be combined with a healthy balanced diet for lifelong vitality and wellness. Microplex VMz provides 22 essential vitamins and minerals to support normal growth, functioning, and maintenance of cells. This blend also fights free radicals with the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E. Organisms degrade over time because cells experience free radical damage. The included antioxidants help the body deal with free radicals and oxidative stress.

Another benefit of Microplex VMz is that it can support healthy immune function. A healthy immune system is one of the most important factors in lifelong health, and it is important to protect the body, especially when seasonal or environmental threats are high. Microplex VMz provides the vitamins and minerals necessary for nutritional support of the immune system for those who are concerned about boosting and protecting immunity.

I also added healthy omegas for brain, heart, and joint support. The health benefits of supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids are well known, but in xEO Mega, dōTERRA has developed the most advanced essential oil omega complex on the market, with an even broader range of benefits. Like with all dietary supplements, bioavailability is key. One daily dose of xEO Mega provides 950 milligrams of pure, micro-filtered marine lipids with 300 mg of EPA and 300 mg of DHA—the two distinct types of long-chain omega-3s that research has consistently shown to be the most beneficial and the most lacking in the conventional diet. xEO Omega also includes a proprietary essential oil complex that work with lipids for added antioxidant protection support of immune system function, and they assist with the digestive process. xEO Mega also includes 800 IU of Vitamin D, 20 IU of Vitamin E, and antioxidant astaxanthin. The vitamin D, vitamin E, and astaxanthin offer additional body system support and help further promote a healthy response to oxidative stress.

Alpha CRS+ is a proprietary combination of several of the most powerful natural polyphenols to protect against cellular damage and oxidative stress. Proanthocyanidins from grape seed, baicalin from scutellaria root, quercetin from the Japanese Pagoda Tree, boswellic acids from Frankincense, resveratrol from Japanese knotweed, ellagic acid from pomegranate extract, and curcumin from turmeric root combine to counteract free radical action and support healthy cellular function. Along with providing an exogenous (external) source of antioxidants, Alpha CRS+ also includes silymarin from milk thistle which supports the body’s endogenous production of antioxidants. Along with promoting cellular health, Alpha CRS+ has a number of other benefits. Due to their ability to combat the aging process from a cellular level, antioxidant substances are great for skin health. Containing a standardized extract of Gingko bilboa, Alpha CRS+ supports mental clarity and function. The included tummy tamer extract blend helps prevent stomach upset when taken with meals.

Together, the three supplements provide highly bioavailable sources of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that the common diet is most likely to be deficient in. A healthy balanced diet and Microplex VMz, Alpha CRS+, and xEO Mega give you a simple way to maintain well-being.

I used a lot of different essential oils and blends and continue to do so. On Guard Protective Blend has incredible uses and benefits for both body and home. This protective blend can be taken internally to support respiratory function and the body’s natural antioxidant defenses. With powerful immune-supporting properties, On Guard is well-known for its ability to protect against environmental and seasonal threats. On Guard can also be used to support the body’s natural antioxidant defense.

How I use it: I add 1 drop to my morning and evening veggie capsule and I also diffuse it daily.

Frankincense is an oil I couldn't live without.

It promotes cellular health and immunity and it produces a healthy inflammatory response when taken internally.

Diffusing Frankincense will aid you in focusing and will also help bring added satisfaction, peace, relaxation, and even feelings of overall wellness.

One of Frankincense’s most powerful benefits is its ability to promote health, specifically cellular function. In fact, dōTERRA has found Frankincense to be so beneficial in supporting cellular function, they use it in the Lifelong Vitality Pack I mentioned above.

How I use it: I like to put one drop under my tongue, twice daily.

When it comes to using essential oils internally to benefit your body, Copaiba oil is a must-have. The unique chemical composition of Copaiba means that it can support numerous systems of the body, and it possesses similar properties to cannabinoids found in cannabis. Our bodies need antioxidants to properly support our cellular health. Take Copaiba internally on a regular basis to take advantage of the powerful antioxidants Copaiba oil offers. The nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves that send and receive messages throughout the body. These messages help us process sensory information, control movements, and generate thoughts and feelings. Copaiba will help to soothe and calm the nervous system. Copaiba naturally supports a number of bodily systems. Aside from the nervous system, Copaiba supports the health of the lungs and respiratory system, the digestive system, the immune system, and the cardiovascular system. Copaiba comes in a softgel or an oil.

How I take it: 2 softgels daily.

TURMERIC...I'm so happy dōTERRA has this as an option. You’ve probably heard of turmeric before—it’s the spice that makes curries and mustard yellow in color. Maybe you’ve even seen it available as a supplement at your local health-food store. Turmeric powder in capsules and spice bottles comes from a root that is dried and ground. However, an option you probably have heard less about is Turmeric essential oil. Turmeric oil is a much more powerful choice when it comes to using this spice for various health benefits.

Turmeric oil may help support a healthy nervous system, as well as cellular function. The soothing benefits of Turmeric oil can be utilized by taking one to two drops in a Veggie Capsule. Doing this on a regular basis gives your body the antioxidant support it needs to protect your body from free radical damage. It may also support healthy immune function as well as immune response.

How I use it: I add 1 drop to my morning and evening veggie capsule.

This next blend is a game changer. DDR Prime {Damaged DNA Repair}. Oxidative stress, an imbalance between the production of free radicals and your body’s ability to counteract them, is a natural process that can greatly influence your overall well-being. Antioxidants are molecules that are present in cells. These molecules donate electrons to unbalanced free radicals in order to balance them and stop the cycle of cellular degradation. While antioxidants are found in abundance in many whole foods, it is often difficult to get the amount and specific types of antioxidants our body needs for peak cellular health. DDR Prime Cellular Complex offers an easy way to get this antioxidant support.

The power of DDR Prime is in the proprietary blend of essential oils. Alone, all of the individual oils have been shown to provide support of cellular integrity, but the synergistic effects they provide when combined together is even more powerful. Frankincense, Wild Orange, and Clove oil have all been shown to promote a healthy response to free radicals. Thyme and Niaouli essential oils support cellular immunity and overall cellular health. Summer Savory has been shown to support our body’s natural mechanisms to deal with oxidative stress. Lastly, Lemongrass oil can protect against environmental threats. Combined, this exclusive combination of essential oils offers unparalleled support of the body’s natural free-radical defense systems. DDR Prime comes in softgels or an oil blend.

How I use this: I take two softgles daily or add 2 drops to a veggie capsule.

Probiotics are super important for anyone, not just people with Lyme Disease. PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule that supports the community of friendly bacteria your GI tract needs to maintain peak function. The 6 billion CFUs (colony-forming units) of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) promote GI tract health by helping prevent the proliferation of unfriendly organisms. The probiotic and prebiotic cultures do this by competing for nutrients necessary for growth and by crowding them out as they compete for intestinal surface area. They also produce chemical by-products that create an intestinal environment in which “bad” microorganisms cannot flourish. Probiotics can help promote the kind of healthy GI tract that is necessary for optimum well-being Three veggie capsules a day with food supports healthy digestive and immune systems, absorption of food, and metabolism for optimal wellness. The proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and probiotic microorganisms contained with PB Assist+ includes L. acidophilus, B. bifidus, B. longum, L. plantarum, and L. caseii to promote a positive balance and variety of beneficial gut bacteria.

How I take it: 2-3 capsules daily.

TerraZyme is a proprietary combination of enzymes most likely deficient in the modern diet. The 10 whole food enzymes work primarily through promoting more efficient digestion of food nutrients and by reducing the demand for internal production of digestive nutrients, thus freeing resources for optimal levels of metabolic enzyme production and activity. Not only does this ensure that your body is able to use the nutrition it consumes, but it also can help support specific food intolerances as mentioned above, especially for those with intolerances of fats, proteins, or carbohydrates.

One of the many benefits of better digestion is increased cellular energy. Whole food enzymes are able to break down specific macro and micronutrients so that they can enter systemic circulation and be used for energy needs. TerraZyme also assists the endogenous (internal) production of digestive enzymes, which results in fewer resources being needed to produce digestive enzymes and more left for other metabolic purposes.

How I take it: 1 capsule before each meal and 1 capsule before bed.

Managing toxic load is one of the most important parts of maintaining overall health, yet it is rarely addressed. During our daily routine, simple and necessary tasks like eating, breathing, and coming in contact with the environment through our skin exposes our bodies to numerous toxins and microbial pathogens. While minimizing exposure to toxic substances and eating a primarily whole food diet are the foundations of supporting proper function of your body’s internal filtering and cleansing systems, sometimes you need a little boost.

Zendocrine Detoxification Complex includes a proprietary blend of 14 active whole-food extracts targeting specific cleansing organs. Each whole-food botanical extract was selected specifically to both provide protective cleansing and filtering functions for the body, and to support the ability of body organs to rid themselves of stored toxic waste products. Whole food extracts from milk thistle seed, psyllium husk, safflower petals, and several others have been shown to provide added support to the body’s internal cleansing organs. The patented enzyme support system of amylase, cellulase, magnesium yeast, and manganese yeast assists with the absorption of the whole food extracts. Absorption is the top priority for nutritional supplements. Unless they are properly absorbed, the proprietary ingredients in Zendocrine Detoxification Complex cannot do their job.

How I take it: 2 capsules a day.

Everything I mentioned above is what I do on a daily basis for overall wellness. I use other essential oils for sleep, mood, pain, etc. Getting your immune system and gut in good order is a must!

If you'd like to learn more about what worked for me, or get your hands on any of the products I mentioned above, email me at If you're local to Loudoun County, I have monthly classes you can attend, or we could meet up one-on-one. I also do virtual coffee chats for those of you that live in other parts of the country.

Remember, every person is different. This is what worked for my family. Thanks for reading!
