How do I stay healthy when all my co-workers are sick around me?

By January 20, 2011 - 8:30pm

Its mid-January and it seems EVERYONE is coming down with something. Head colds, coughs, body aches - and lots of missed hours at work. I really watch my PH level and if I see I am getting acidic (maybe that piece of birthday cake was too much sugar in my diet)I start taking organic apple cider vinegar. It seems this time of year, people's energy levels and resistance is lower...so we have to take extra care to maintain our immunity to avoid getting a physical ailment. Extra rest, good diet, plenty of water, no caffeine and a daily dose of Thieves essential oil on the bottom of the feet (as well as whole food supplements) have made a HUGE difference in my ability to stay in the groove, keepon the job and enjoying my regular winter time activities (including skiing). What do you do to stay well? By the way, the flu vaccine is NOT part of my protocol!

Essential oils, knowns as nature's living energy, are the natural, aromatic violatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The distrinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extrated from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and benefits vast - which makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherpay, massage therapy, emtotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions and much more.
