Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune Disease Essential Oil Usage

An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body mistakenly attacks itself.  The immune system normally produces white blood cells to protect the body from antigens such as bacteria, virus, and a variety of toxins that may harm the body.  When the immune system cannot distinguish between healthy body tissue and antigens it can produce an unwanted response and attack itself.  There are over 70 diseases that are known or suspected to be autoimmune disorders.  Commonly know diseases include:

•  Addison's disease

•  Celiac disease - sprue (gluten sensitive enteropathy)

•  Crohn's disease (generally believed)

•  Dermatomyositis

•  Fibromyalgia (probably not an autoimmune disease)

•  Grave's disease

•  Hashimoto's thyroiditis

•  Lupus erythematosus

•  Multiple sclerosis

•  Narcolepsy

•  Pernicious anemia

•  Rheumatoid arthritis

•  Schmidt's syndrome (combination of Addison's and hypothyroidism or type 1 diabetes mellitus)

•  Systemic lupus erythematosus

•  Sjogren syndrome

•  Type I diabetes

•  Myasthenia gravis

•  Reactive arthritis

•  Ulcerative colitis (not conclusive)

Autoimmune Disease Essential Oil Usage

Oils & Blends: DDR Prime, GX Assist, PB Assist, Zendocrine

Essential oils based products: AromaTouch Technique, Zendocrine Detoxification Complex

Also consider: Balance, Clove, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Lemon, Melaleuca, Melissa, On Guard, Oregano

Suggested protocols:

Here are general comments about autoimmune concerns (for some specific conditions you will find protocols and experiences under their specific names, see list below). Most comments note that although there may not be complete restoration that following the essential oils protocols did improve and extended the quality of life significantly.

•  Consistently using the LLV supplements and 8 drops or 1 capsule of DDR Prime 2 times per day will definitely be beneficial.

•  2 -3 drops of Frankincense 2 - 4 times daily under the tongue, internally with a spoonful of honey or in a capsule.

•  Consider oils or products for the discomforts of specific symptoms and to protect from the concerns of a cold or the flu and other contagious diseases that can prove so harmful when you are already battling an autoimmune disorder.

•  Also note that autoimmune disorders can take a toll on the emotional energy of an individual and the lift and support essential oils or blends like Balance, Citrus Bliss, Elevation, Lavender, etc. can be very beneficial.

•  Some speak of the benefit of the Zendocrine cleanse that addresses the liver, kidneys, bowels and skin. see Detoxification.

•  The theory that a root cause of autoimmune disorders is Candida is detailed under the Science & Research tab above. To address Candida use the GX Assist cleanse detailed under  Detoxification. Note that some with autoimmune disorders are particularly sensitive and should start this cleanse with 1 GX capsule daily for 2 days, if no skin or digestive reactions increase to 2 capsules for 2 days and then if no reactions to the prescribed 3 per day.

Individual experiences:

•  One with autoimmune hepatitis comments that without a specific protocol she just used essential oils products for her nutritional supplements, skin care, hair care, toothpaste, home cleaning products, etc and found that this reduced the toxic load on her liver and her liver enzymes are now normal.

•  One with MS and a family member with Lupus states strongly that their problems are not Candida related and hence the GX Cleanse would not apply. On the other hand using oils for symptom relief and other needs has significantly improved their quality of life.

•  One with fibromyalgia was advised by her doctor to use probiotics and hence the PB Assist has been of benefit.
