All I Want For Christmas - My Health
As a holistic health practitioner for over 40 years, I have been privileged to study, live and practice all over the world. But I want to share more than just my products with you in this article. I want to bring your conscious awareness to what, how, why, when or whether you take time for yourself and your loved ones. Doing so empowers you and engenders good health and authenticity.
We’ve all heard the phrase “Health is Wealth”. I recently told an audience that I was the wealthiest woman I know. After allowing this audacious statement to sink in a bit I shared some of the ways I considered myself wealthy. Good health was at the top of my list, followed closely by creativity, stamina, focus, love and humor. I had everyone laughing as I evoked the gods to please allow my bank account to match the other great wealth I’ve accumulated!
Are you getting the picture? What makes you wealthy? You can have a surplus of money but if you aren’t healthy and energetic, with purpose in your life, you’ll be very poor indeed.
I propose that this holiday season we look inward, take stock of what we have, and consider what we really need rather than what we want, aligning our shopping list according to our values.
Do you make time in each day to pray, meditate or reflect? Do you eat organically and according to your body’s needs? Do you spend joyful time with loved ones in order to nurture them and yourself? Do you exercise to keep your body supple, strong and aligned? Do you work in an environment that uplifts you and allows you to feel your worth? Are you creative in your work or your personal life? Do you have hobbies that fill gaps in your life?
Immushield - Immediately to the Rescue
Essential oils are some of the world’s oldest medicines. Once absorbed into your body, the essential oils in Immushield quickly go to work strengthening your immune system and clearing and balancing infection. Essential oils do not recognize the names of pathological diseases like Staph, Strep, Candida, or Mercer (also know as MRSA). They simply enter the organism and systemically do their work in under 10 minutes.
The essential oils used in ImmuShield balance bacteria, virus & fungus bringing harmony and assistance for the body’s own ability to heal itself. Using ImmuShield daily boosts the immune system, creating a balanced environment where dis-ease isn’t invited to reside. Immushield boosts the immune system and balances bacteria, virus and fungus in the body. The following stories say it all.
Rapid Relief -My New Best Friend
"I was introduced to Rapid Relief about 6 months ago and it has changed my life.
I was diagnosed with a rare form of arthritis that spikes a high fever and attacks the joints and leads to their degeneration, which has resulted in excruciating pain in my hips, knees, shoulders, back and hands. I have had a hip replacement and numerous injections of cortisone, which has helped off and on. Refusing to get on prescription painkillers, since they make me not in my right mind, I would take copious amounts of Aleve, Aspirin, Motrin etc. to try to dull the pain.
And I really mean copious. I would go through a bottle of 100 in a week. The only thing this did was eventually send me to the hospital with so many ulcers, the doctor couldn’t count them. After that fun time, I could only take Tylenol, which doesn’t do much of anything for me.
I have known Elizabeth for about 15 years and we reconnected a few months ago. While having lunch, the conversation shifted to my arthritis. She recommended I get started on Rapid Relief, applying it 4 times a day. Rapid Relief reduced the inflammation, which is the root cause of arthritis. It reduced the inflammation thereby reducing the pain.
I only did it twice a day due to my busy schedule, but that even helped. I have since cancelled three appointments to have epidurals in my spine to relieve my back pain. I use it in the morning and at night. I can still feel some intermittent pain in different areas, but it is only temporary. I’m sure if I were diligent about using it 3-4 times a day; I most likely wouldn’t have any! As far as any other meds, I now only take 2 Tylenol about 3 times a week. The Rapid Relief keeps the pain at bay. I love this stuff, especially since it is natural.
I am also excited about starting ImmuShield, ImmuAir and Serene, along with her other wonderful products!
Thank you Elizabeth!"

ImmuAir is an essential oil blend that clears the air of stale smells, bacteria and viruses. Essential oils are live molecules, roaming the air and eating up bacteria and virus. Misting ImmuAir anywhere around body helps eliminate airborne bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus that may be present. A small amount goes a very long way – one spritz can cover up to 600 square feet!*
I formulated ImmuAir from my own experience as a frequent traveler. Spending so much time in airplanes and hotels – as well as a need to keep my own clinics free of bacterial and viral contamination – led me to create this blend. For instance, it’s a fact that every 2 1/2 minutes the air is re-circulated on airplanes. How I wish the industry would incorporate ImmuAir into their air systems.

Essential Encounters With Elizabeth

Elizabeth’s Essentials is a local business offering an exclusive line of healing essential oil blends. This month, founder and CEO Elizabeth Bloom begins a new series of tips for using oil blends for health, happiness and harmony.
A medical clinic owner shared the following with me about Rapid Relief:
“I have to tell you of the brilliant result from Rapid Relief on recurrent outbreak of staph infection on my left forearm. This time I used only the Rapid Relief on the infected area 4-6 X daily for 7 days. It completely healed and is fading, as opposed to my last episode that took weeks of heavy antibiotics (oral and cream based). Excellent on open wounds, and as always, unmatched for muscle and joint pain! Thanks, Elizabeth. Oh, and the ImmuShield has saved me all year long, too!”
Essential Oils and the Talisman Effect
Reprinted from marlenesmarket-deli.com
My essential oil remedies are often prescribed by therapists, yet few inquire about how they work. A Lifestyle Integration therapist recently asked me why inhaling oils is so effective. Following is our conversation, which others may find helpful.
E: When essential oils are inhaled, they immediately cross the blood brain barrier and enter the amygdala, the limbic system of the brain which processes emotions and events and stores feelings and memories like pain and joy. Specific essential oils are proven to reduce cortisol levels and alleviate anxiety, stress, and depression. The use of essential oils in mental health settings serves to reduce resistance and facilitates the client’s openness and deeper understanding of the issues. Many therapists assert that the progress of therapy is exponentially enhanced with the use of high quality essential oils. Clients report unprecedented relief from both physical and emotional complaints. Continuing use of the essential oil products at home reinforces and anchors the gains from the therapeutic hour.
Therapist: So how would inhaling lavender or rosemary help with our dissociative clients? And does Nasal Relief deliver a sufficient dose to immediately bring a client back into focus? Some therapists are using whole cloves or coffee beans for this purpose, could Nasal Relief do the same thing?
E: This would be an exciting new application of the product. I would expect it to be equally, and possibly even more effective, for reasons I have already explained regarding the impact of essential oils on the emotional center of the brain. In addition, the Nasal Relief inhaler is convenient to use and carry around. A person with a tendency to dissociate can’t anticipate when something might trigger them and this in itself elicits anxiety. Getting a dose of Nasal Relief via the inhaler immediately recalls and anchors the experience of grounding and mental clarity that accompanied its use during a session.
Essential Oils: Nothing Heals Better Than Nature

Essential oils are the chemical defense system of plants. Essential oils possess potent anti‑bacterial, antifungal and anti‑viral properties. Their lipid soluble structure is compatible with human tissue and rapidly penetrates the cell membranes of human beings, suffusing blood and tissues with infection fighting hormone‑like compounds that stimulate cell regeneration. They oxygenate the blood and act as natural chelators.
Essential oils are powerful, concentrated extracts of flowers, fruits, leaves, roots and woods. The essential oil of a living plant is 75‑100 times more concentrated than a dried plant! Oils are cultivated throughout the world for the food, cosmetic and medical industries. They are harvested according to varying philosophies of thoughts, cultures and climates. Extraordinary efforts are taken by distillers to preserve all of the fragile chemical properties in the essential oils. Plants are steam distilled in small batches using a special low pressure, minimal heat, steam technology. The steamers are constructed from costly stainless steel alloys to minimize the possibility of the essential oil being chemically altered by more reactive metals such as aluminum, steel or copper. As an example of the concentration of essential oils, understand that it takes 30 roses to produce one drop of rose oil and 60,000 roses to make one ounce of rose oil!

Help your body heal with powerful essential oils
No one knows your body like you. Body, mind, and spirit are connected, so they need to be treated as one. Authentic healing is only accomplished when all three are addressed, and the core issue is discovered.
Enter the healing power of Essential Oils.
Essential oils are volatile liquids distilled from plant parts. When used medicinally, the plant material should be free of pesticides, herbicides, and other agrochemicals. Essential oils contain chemical compounds that lend important therapeutic properties to the oil.
Plant-derived essential oil and human blood both fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration. Essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. They have a chemical structure similar to human cells, making them compatible with human protein. By penetrating cell membranes, they diffuse throughout the blood and tissues. Applied topically, essential oils travel throughout the body in minutes.
