TOTAL WELLNESS WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: AN INTRODUCTION FOR RDs
This is a webinar I originally created for DIFM RDs and now with permission am providing it here. During the recording you will hear references to www.EssentialOils4RDs.com;
this site has been moved under the “RD Area” on www.OilsbyMarie.com (which is where you are now).
BUSINESS AFFILIATION: I am a distributor with Young Living Essential Oils
Did you know that the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (the law governing the safety of chemicals we are exposed to in our everyday lives) grandfathered in 1000’s of chemicals with NO safety testing? The average female applies 80 chemicals before breakfast. They come from our health and personal care products (shampoo, moisturizer, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, pill coatings and fillers.) My role as an essential oils educator is based upon the concept of living a chemical-free lifestyle. The research is solid; everyday chemical exposures are wreaking havoc on our health.
Speaking of research, there are over 26,000 published studies on essential oils!
If you choose organic foods to keep your body “clean,” it only makes sense to do the same with all other products that get into your blood stream. It only takes 26 seconds for any chemical applied to the skin to enter your blood stream.
Our immune system can only process and detox so many offenders in a day. When we overwhelm this system with a new daily supply of toxins, it has to choose between deleting damaged cells, removing chemicals and disabling pathogens. We have a choice. They are called natural wellness options.
After years of experimenting with a variety of natural solutions, essential oils were a game-changer for me and my family. They can be used for wellness, body care, cleaning and emotional shifting. They provide natural and soothing support for the following systems and challenges:
- Respiratory and Sinus
- Joints, Back and Muscles
- Cognition and Focus
- Calming Nervous Tension
- Pains associated with Activities of Daily Living
- Fat Metabolism
Learning about essential oils and how they can be used in your daily routine for self-care is simple….and fun!
Also watch my “Ditch & Switch” video on the main page of this site. This is what I use to teach small community groups and it’s how I have grown an expansive essential oils business. Many RDs on my team have trained to do the same. If you would like to learn more about this training, feel free to reach out on my contact form.
If essential oils resonate with you, I recommend using them for your own self-care first: just like trying a new recipe before sharing it. I started with myself and my family, including my dog who loved the smell and soothing joint support!
The presentation mentions using essential oils in your nutrition practice, but don’t get overly-focused on that. I recommend starting with simply enjoying the oils for personal wellness support and toxic-free lifestyle choices. You may also enjoy reading my RD article, also in the RDN area. It contains a list of practical everyday essential oil uses.
Webinar Description: This webinar describes what essential oils (EO) are, the research, and common everyday wellness uses.
I share my experience incorporating EO’s into my nutrition practice and personal wellness routine. Throughout the presentation, I will demonstrate how I combine this information along with nutrition strategies.
The attendee will be able to:
- Describe what EOs are
- Provide instructions on three basic ways to use EOs
- Recommend specific EOs for 3 common wellness concerns
