Natural Environmental Protection with Medical-Grade Essential Oils

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve… You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. — Martin Luther King

Essential oils have been used for centuries to protect against plagues, bacteria and viruses and the time is upon us when natural solutions are needed to protect our health from environmental pollution.

A Special Message from Gary and Mary Young

As you have undoubtedly heard, Japan is currently suffering from the effects of a massive earthquake, which in turn created a devastating tsunami. Our thoughts and prayers are with our distributors and employees in Japan as they cope with this catastrophe. While all Young Living employees are accounted for, we have not yet been able to make contact with all of our distributors. My team and I are making every effort to get in touch with these YL family members to check on their safety.

Beyond the immediate impact of this disaster, several nuclear reactors on the eastern coast of Japan have been compromised. Radiation exposure can have devastating health consequences, a fact I learned during my extensive research on the Chernobyl disaster in the 1980s. As happened with Chernobyl, there are concerns that any leaked radiation from one or more Japanese nuclear reactors may be carried by air currents across large portions of the globe.

Japanese authorities are working to repair these reactors and contain the radiation. However, the true extent of these leaks is not yet known, and they could have the potential to affect people in Japan and across the world. Knowing this, we can take prudent precautionary steps to protect ourselves and loved ones from potential radioactive effects.

Mary and I will be taking several steps to safeguard our home with the powerful air-purifying and DNA-protecting properties of Young Living essential oils, and we recommend that you do the same.

While science has not yet made a demonstrable link between diminished radiation effects and essential oils or resin burning, I believe in doing everything possible to protect my family using natural means.

In addition to the above recommendations, I have created a new kit called QuadShield (#4559). QuadShield (see products below) combines four potent Young Living products: Super C,* Melrose, Longevity, and Thyromin.* These products may have a synergistic, protective effect on your hormonal and immune systems, and I recommend sending this kit to friends and family in Japan, as well as using them personally in your home.

It is not my intention to alarm anyone or cause undue concern over the developing situation in Japan. However, I strongly believe in being proactive and using readily available resources at our disposal to safeguard our health and those we love. I also feel that this recent disaster could be viewed as a wake-up call to all of us about the radiation that surrounds us all the time and the methods that we can use to protect us from it.

The Young Living executive team and I will continue to closely monitor developments in Japan, and we will provide updates and additional information as the picture becomes clearer.

Young Living EndoShield for Natural Environmental Protection EndoShield is another fantastic combination of Longevity Softgels, Melrose EssentialOil Blend, Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend and EndoFlex Essential Oil Blend.

Longevity Softgels are a powerful combination of orange, thyme, frankincense, clove medical-grade oils. Thyme is the lead oil in Longevity. Thyme is the second highest on the ORAC Scale (followed by Mountain Savory). Thyme has a tremendous effect in protecting the DHA; its antioxidants protects the cerebral cortex, logic and reasoning. When oxidized by aging or free radical attacks, memory loss occurs, dementia, and death. How well are we protecting our DHA? Thyme is an anti-rancidity oil. Thyme and Clove protect omega 3 and DHA fats.

Thyme protects the liver. The molecule, thymol, in Thyme is comparable to milk thistle. If the liver is healthy we can balance many other conditions. (Thymol is used in many over-the-counter products such as mouthwash and vapor rubs because of its purifying agents but this is synthetic thymol).Thyme helps with pathogens; fungus, mold, bacteria, virus, and is highly anti-microbial, anti-aging. Thyme rates 15,960 on the ORAC Scale.

Research in Scotland found that by elevating the omega 3 and DHA levels in younger mice, reversed the aging process. Dietary administration had a marked effect on fatty acid distribution, to levels observed in younger mice. Slowing and reversing the aging process (study from 1999). Eyesight: lipid peroxidation, DHA is critical for eye health and macular degeneration; 3.9 mg daily of thyme slowed degeneration in the eye. The essential oil in plants repel invaders. When we put them in our body, we can reduce the levels of these pathogens. For example, Lysteria pathogen, which is associated with bad breath, can become systemic and comes from the food we eat. Do you have bad breath? Just one drop on tongue of Longevity or thyme, purifies the mouth of all germs, and goodbye to bad breath.

Another pathogen are viruses. Clove and thyme reduce proliferation of viruses, especially the herpes virus. Eugenol and thymol are anti-viral and anti-mold, toxic mold, black molds. If we diffuse Longevity essential oil blend, which may not be the most appealing blend to smell, but using it as a cleansing agent to purify your home and it could have profound effects on mold. Of course, Thieves is the most effective at eliminating mold. Also, Longevity is a great Immune booster. There are so many studies available on the positive effects of eugenol and thymol.

Orange (Citrus sinensis) and Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) both have high amounts of limonene which prevents DNA damage. A Pubmed search on limonene shows it is anti-tumoral unrivaled and is most active in inhibiting cancer in the initiation phase. Also inhibits skin cancer initiation. A diet of 1% limonene reduced tumors. Protects the cell membranes, inhibit growth of all 3 stages of cancer, stopping mutations at their inception. Limonene studies and clincial trials are immense, breast and colon cancer also. The highest limonene content is in Grapefruit essential oil, followed by tangerine and orange.

Limonene increases glutathione and detoxes the liver. Having Low levels of glutathione in the liver leads to heart disease and diabetes. Glutathione is all the rage right now. Everyone is trying to get a precursor to glutathione but nothing is going to beat limonene. Take some Longevity Blend and you'll see it go up.

Young Living always speaks of quality while delivering the highest quality of essential oils in the world. We are assuming that when we talk about these oils, it has to be an authentic essential oil, from seed to seal. That's how we guarantee our oils. There are short cuts that can be taken. With clove, they use different parts such as the leaf, not just the clove bud, which it should be. Young living's clove is only the bud, where the highest levels of Eugenol is found (78-87%).

With Limonene rich oils, you have to beware of pesticides. A study showed pesticide residues in 148 different tested lemon, orange and mandarin oils. Did you know that 64% of lemon oils on the market have pesticide residues. Same with orange and mandarin oils which were tested showed they had pesticides. Young Living tests our oils to make sure that they are all pesticide free. Thank you, Young Living for caring so much!

Lemon purifies the air, boost immunity. Research by Jean Valnet, M.D. showed that vaporized lemon oil can kill meningococcus bacteria in 15 minutes, typhoid bacilli in 1 hour, Staphylococcus aureus in 2 hours, and Pneumococcus bacteria within 3 hours. Even a 0.2% solution of lemon oil can kill diphtheria bacteria in 20 minutes and inactivated tuberculosis bacteria!

Melrose Essential Oil Blend provides a protective barrier against skin challenges and is a strong antiseptic. Melrose is also powerful for eradicating candida. Use Melrose topically or internally. Melrose contains Melaleuca alternifolia, Naouli, Rosemary and Clove essential oils.

Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend stimulates the right brain to amplify creativity and well-being as well as eradicate anxiety. It also works well as an air purifier in one of our diffusers. Japan found that diffusing a citrus fragrance in an office environment improved mental accuracy and concentration by 54%. When diffused it adds a clean fresh scent to any environment and children love it.

EndoFlex Essential Oil Blend amplifies metabolism and vitality and creates hormonal balance in the body. This is a proprietary blend in a base of sesame seed oil, Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Sage (Salvia officinalis), Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens), Myrtle (Myrtus communis), Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans), and German chamomile (Matriciaria recutita).

How to use: Use the following Young Living products as follows: Longevity: 1–2 capsules twice daily; Melrose: 6–20 drops per capsule or in yogurt 1–3 times a day; Citrus Fresh: diffuse daily; EndoFlex: put in a capsule and take 1-2 times a day.

"The rays of high-energy radiation are like little bullets that shoot through the body. They tear electrons away from molecules and through subsequent reactions of the molecular ions that are formed, the molecules may be broken in two, some atoms may be torn away from them, some new molecules may be formed. The dose of 500 roentgens that usually leads to death by acute radiation sickness causes about 500,000 changed molecules to be formed in each cell. If any of the special molecules [that control the process by which the cell divides] happen to be damaged by a single little bullet of radiation from a single radioactive atom, it may be changed in such a way as to cause the cell to divide much more rapidly than the other cells. This cell may then produce a colony of rapidly dividing cells, which in the course of time would outnumber the normal cells of that type. Then the human being may die from cancer - perhaps leukemia, bone cancer, some other kind of cancer - caused by the single radioactive atom that produced the single little bullet of radiation." — Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling

Japan, Radiation, and its Health and Spiritual Implications
by Gabriel Cousens, M.D. on Tuesday, March 15, 2011 at 4:26pm

Dear Ones,

As prophesized and actualized, we are in a period of earth changes as demonstrated by the major 8.9 quake that shook Japan, with all its potential radioactive consequences that may effect the whole world. These radioactive dangers include not only radioactive I-131, cesium 137, and potassium 40-42, but also the potential of one of the reactors being a plutonium run. This would be far more dangerous than I-131 and cesium 137. A full plutonium reactor meltdown could kill a significant amount of the Japanese population. Unfortunately it is not clear if plutonium is being used in one of the reactors, and what is happening in general with the nuclear reactors there.

The following disturbing facts about the health dangers posed by higher radiation levels have been gleaned from the international news:

"Chief cabinet minister Yukio Edano said radiation levels near the stricken plant on the northeast coast reached as high as 400 millisieverts (mSv) an hour, thousands of times higher than readings before the blast. That would be 20 times the current yearly level for some nuclear-industry employees and uranium miners. Exposure to 350 mSv was the criterion for relocating people after the Chernobyl accident, according to the World Nuclear Association. People are exposed to natural radiation of about 2 mSv a year. Exposure to 100 mSv a year is the lowest level at which any increase in cancer is clearly evident. A cumulative 1,000 mSv would probably cause a fatal cancer many years later in five out of every 100 persons exposed to it."

To help you understand the severity of the situation, in the struggle to stop plutonium satellites from being launched from Cape Canaveral, evidence was released to show that an accidental satellite explosion could kill the entire population of Florida. These are, of course, serious consequences that leave us with the question of what to do.

On the physical plane, we know that significant protection against these deadly radiation energies occurs through competitive inhibition. In other words, if the body is taking in natural wholesome elements from certain foods, it will not have space to take in the radioactive elements. The various elements compete at the receptor sites, and healthy food wins every time.

Young Living's MutiGreens Supplement Includes Kelp To protect yourself from I-131 poisoning, take 5 kelp tablets daily. The body will absorb the kelp instead of the I-131. [Kelp can be found in MultiGreens.] Taking 50-100 mg of Idoral daily is more expensive and also more effective.

To protect yourself from cesium poisoning, consume plenty of high potassium foods, as potassium competitively inhibits cesium uptake. Foods high in potassium include avocados, sea vegetables, and leafy green vegetables. I don't necessarily recommend taking a potassium supplement. These foods should provide all you need to block cesium 137 uptake.

To protect yourself from plutonium poisoning, eat lots of dulse and consume iron from plant sources, namely sea algaes such as spirulina, E3Live, and chlorella, which provide more iron than red meat. Miso soup has also been shown to have a protective effect. NCD, at 10 drops 4 times daily, is excellent for taking almost all radioactive materials out of the body.

Young Living's NingXia Red Juice ~ High In Antioxidants Additionally, foods and supplements high in antioxidants, will also help the body cope with these higher toxic levels as radioactive materials cause anti-oxidant depletion and ill health. Eating alkalizing food is also good.

Eating low on the food chain is a basic essential principle as well. What we learned from the Chernobyl incident in 1986 was that there was a 900% increase in peri-natal mortality in the Boston area. It was found that the cows' milk (including grass-fed cows' milk) contained concentrated radioactive I-131, and the expectant or nursing mothers drinking the cows' milk inadvertently poisoned their babies. The radioactive pollutions in the environment, such as depleted uranium, become more concentrated higher on the food chain. Dioxin in the environment is found concentrated in Ben and Jerry's ice cream at 200 times a safe exposure level. This is one reason why a live-food, plant-source diet, eating low on the food chain, is the safest and best diet at this point in history and the foreseeable future.

A small point on the level of risk benefit, if you happened to live on the West Coast, all the way to Vancouver, where the peri-natal rate was increased by approximately 50% and in the Boston area by 900%, it would not have been wise to eat animal and dairy products locally. We may have to look at locavore ideologies as secondary to the bigger health issues, as eating locally only yields 11% less CO2 compared with procuring products from around the globe.

For more information on how food can mitigate the effects of radioactive toxins, read chapter 29, "How Diet Can Protect You from the Dangers of Radioactive Radiation" in my book Conscious Eating (North Atlantic Books, 2000).

Additionally, it is helpful to understand that the energies behind these earth changes are "wake-up calls" from God to change our adharmic lifestyles. I urge you to consider these prophetic unfoldings and examine your lives. Make changes that help you to move away from the Culture of Death and into the Culture of Life and Liberation. This includes careful consideration of everything from diet to doing service and charity, and no longer living according to the "relative morality" that has become the world's standard. It might be useful to return to the basic moralities and ethics shared between all the world’s spiritual scriptures.

In a separate message:
People have sent me absolutely countless emails about potassium iodide to prevent uptake of radioactive iodine. On the assumption that repetition may be useful, let me begin by saying that while this information is accurate, what was released from the Fukushima reactor was radioactive cesium. Trace amounts of radioactive iodine were found very close to the reactor itself but for the moment, the issue is cesium, not iodine.

Young Living's JuvaCleanse Essential Oil Blend ~ Detoxify Your Liver and Body So, we are not talking thyroid but muscles and the reproductive system and eventually the liver and kidneys and ultimately everywhere but the thyroid is not the primary focus of attention. Cesium is very different from iodine. It explodes on contact with moisture. So, the first preventative measure, in the event of fallout, is to stay indoors and the second is to wear a wet face mask when going out.

When the fires were raging in Los Alamos, the air was heavy. I vividly remember one experience. My car was in the garage. I got into it with the garage door still closed, opened the door before starting the engine. I was able to park about 10-12 feet from the door to the bank but the tiny exposure to outside air at that time was immediately weakening. Now, however, we have a type of radioactivity that will be more subtle and depending on the exact type of cesium, the half life and then the half life of the half life and so on and so forth will haunt us for several generations to come. I hope this is the end of the nuclear age and the dawn of sanity!

In any event, what we can do to protect ourselves is to make sure we have all the nutrients needed by the body, especially potassium.

In order to move beyond quick fix media hype and into a deeper appreciation of what preparatory and preventative measures are adequate, we need to separate a few issues. The first is to become totally clear about what is being released and how the body views that substance. As I said, cesium will be treated by the body as if it were potassium so a potassium deficiency would tend to make one more receptive to radioactive hazards posed by cesium. The first step is therefore to correct any deficiencies by ingesting adequate amounts of potassium.

Young Living's TrueSource Supplement ~ High In Potassium, Iodide, spirulina Algae How would you know if you are potassium deficient? Well, since the sodium-potassium balance affects electrolytes, a deficiency would, among other things, cause slow responses. Early warning signs would also include dry skin and some muscle weakness. Since potassium is abundant, deficiencies are usually caused by fluid loss, such as excessive use of diuretics. Hyperthyroidism could also contribute to potassium deficiencies and thus we really want to look hard at conventional wisdom and consider what exactly might happen if all the extra iodine people are now taking results in overstimulation of the thyroid at the expense of what is the real risk.

There are other nuances so these example are illustrative and not intended to be comprehensive. However, one word for those in Hawaii who are sending more emails than others at the moment, and this is that potassium regulation is affected by magnesium. Since Hawaiian islands tend to be critically low in magnesium – due to the particular composition of the volcanic material – people in Hawaii should pay extra attention to any symptoms of magnesium deficiency such as spasms. High on the list of recommended foods are sunflower seeds as they provide great sources of both potassium and magnesium. Pumpkin seeds are also superb. Leafy green vegetables and black beans are excellent as well.

The real issue, however, is maverick electrons. This is what sets off the chain reactions that lead to tissue damage and degeneration. So, we need radioprotective supplements, like Chyawanprash or other good antioxidants and free radical scavengers. Pacifi Ka has Gingko biloba as the main radioprotective herb and beets to help with free radical scavenging. In addition, it offers protection to the reproductive system and bone marrow, the parts of the body most likely to be impacted. It is mucilaginous to help with bonding with radioactive particulates so that they can be removed. The mucilage also protects tissues from dryness and damage due to lack of viscosity. It has a tiny amount of carminative herbs to help with assimilation and nausea. It has yarrow for its subtle effects on the aura and rebalancing and liver protective bupleurum.

Blessings to the evolution of your Whole Person Enlightenment.
