Therapeutic effects of Essential Oils

Sunday February 21, 2021


Did you realize Essential Oils (those that have therapeutic effects and are pure) can help you with your #Hormones ? Whether you suffer from #sleepdeprivation or #hotflashes, to #thyroid problems, there are oils that can help balance.


The cool thing about using essential oils is that you can not overdose. If e.g. you experience #estrogen dominance, which is an imbalance between your #estrogen and #progesterone ration, the oils or oil blends will only "top up" the one you are deficient in.


I personally choose to use YOUNG LIVING and have since the 80's. Did you realize Essential Oils (those that have therapeutic effects and are pure) can help you with your #Hormones ? Whether you suffer from #sleepdeprivation or #hotflashes, to #thyroid problems, there are oils that can help balance.


In this Blog today I want to discuss the THYROID and how essential oils can help. Lets start with a bit of medical explanation. The thyroid secretes hormones (mainly thyroxin) under the direction of the pituitary gland and affect METABOLISM.

Most well know is HYPO thyroidism (underactive thyroid) associated fatigue, depression, possible hair loss, COLD intolerance, irritability and decreased libido.


The 1st thing to choose for a thyroid problem with essential oils (i use and recommend Young Living) is ENDOFLEX or sometimes it maybe be necessary to use MYRTLE (can be added to endoflex.


Besides hypothyroidism a GOITER can sometimes cause HYPER THYROIDISM (overactive thyroid. First of course have it checked out by a doctor. Often associated with lack of IODINE. If you have been diagnosed with a Goiter please test for Iodine through your ND (Naturopathic Doctor). BTW iodine insufficiency can be cause by eg by FLUORIDE and chlorine from public water and fluoride in toothpaste (YL has some amazing fluoride-freetoothpastes).


Hyperthyroid and causes anxiety, insomnia and arthritis. ENDOFLEX and MYRHH can also help with hyperthyroid; isn't the body amazing? It uses the oils where needed.


Remember that your THYROID is part of your endocrine system and if out of balance, can affect your other hormones. Consider taking the D.U.T.C.H. test )Dried Urine Test with your ND first to understand where all your sexy hormones are at. Then you can re-test at some point to see if the treatment course you have chosen is working.
