-How Oils work
Oils are lipophillic which means they can penetrate the cell membrane and reach the viruses
Addiction definition– a strong and harmful need to regularly have something or do something. Generally disruptive to normal routine in some way and physically, psychologically, or socially harmful
Addiction is an unmet need.
Reasons for addictions vary greatly. Choosing to look at the issue means your in the “solutions” mode.
3 basics of changing cravings/addictions
1 Identifying the root cause (People choose thier specific “addiction” for a reason. )
2. Finding new productive nourishing tools (ie. mediation, exercise, Journaling, therapy)
3. Implementing new cooping skills
messenger molecules distribute info
Ligands- 3 categories: Neurotransmitters, Steroids, peptides
95% are peptides. This is where emotions live in a literal chemical form
receptor molecules receive info
They are picky and only receive the right fit messengers.
ex: opiate receptors would accept morphine, heroine, or natural endorphins but not insulun or estrogen
matching what you need with the receptors in a pure form that can be absorped quickly is powerful. (example)
THis show that you have the capacity to be that in charge of your chemistry
you can decide what kind of messengers you want coursing thorugh your body. that’s powerful.
-3 parts of the brain
brainsteam- (autonaumic fuctions)
limic- where your emotions live
ceyrebel cortex- will power, self control
IN addiction here is what happens
limbic takes over and the cortex shrinks(the control part).
your pleasure center shrinks. you need more and more of your “drug”
In the limbic part of brain
amygdala (2 almond sized/shapes deep in brain on both side of brain) (where deep emotions and memories are stored). this is also how you learn by conditioned responses.
if left side is smaller than rt
ptsd, social disorder, obsessive compulsive, autisum, bipolar, serious addictions
can change this and make it bigger
what helps regrow a shrunken amaydala:
-therapy- self observation- where am I? Do I feel safe? Do I like being me? What are my needs?
-Emotional release therapy- EFT tapping (sonya sofia), meditation, exercising, art, binural beat music – (ex; alcoholics have low alpha waves) jane Maati, Hypnosis.
(“the emotion code”- book helps you release emotions)
emotional release with doterra blends- carol Truman “feeling buried alive never die”
goal : homeostasis- balance. you need non-inturruped communication between messenger molecues and receptors.
things that can disrupt the communication:
addictions – sugar, nicotine, alcohol, drugs
* if a receptor site shuts down then your body will signal your brain to keep the “drug” coming. MOre sugar, more cocoain, more nicotine.
how to clear off receptor sites- terrazyme. the protease clears it off when taken on empty stomach. abstinance for 21 days with terrazymne take on empty stomach
how essential oils help:
1. they help correct DNA
2. they clean off receptor sites from foriegn negative messages
3. they can pass through the blood brain barrier
4. restore cellular function
brain damage is the same from all addicts.- sugar, food, meth, alcohol. all the same type damage in brain with varying degrees.
pleasure center shrinks so need more for bliss/happiness
pleasure center shrinks- you need more and more of your “drug” for pleasure
terrazyme helps clear protease off of receptoers
abstinance for 21 days with terrazymne take on empty stomach
-3 ways to use oils
1.aromatic is beneficial b/c of emotional response. It goes directly to the amygdala in the brain which is where emotions are stored. we are 10,000 times more sensitive to smell than taste.
2.topical- direct location response
bottom of feet are like your own personal IV to your bloodline
Louise Hay- Addictions in general – running from self. Fear. Not knowing how to love self.
Oils- if you are drawn to an oil or really dislike an oil your body probably requires it.
