I guess I'll start :).
I am Corrina and battling something the doctor isn't quite sure what it is. History of allergic-type issues with dairy and sesame seeds.
At this point, they have ruled that I probably have IBS. After my hydascan, I was also diagnosed with a hyperactive gallbladdar. I am on antibiotics to treat the gall bladdar, but so far to no avail. Next steps are to have my gall bladdar completely removed.
I have so many questions and I am sure you guys can be of more help!
Hi, I am not sure your opinion on healing naturally but in my opinion you need to see a homeopathic doctor. I have issues with my digestion and I take a probiotic every day along with other digestive supplements. Often IBS is due to your diet. You might have glutin problems. If your interested in more of what I take let me know, I would be happy to help!!
Essential oils are one of the most important parts of my healthcare. They are also one of my favorite things to give as gifts. I love to share the benefits of pure essential oils with my friends. Especially new moms. How I wish that I had used essential oils during pregnancy, labor and delivery and when my children were small. My life would have been much simpler!Essential oils are amazing and have so many benefits. You don't have to use many drops~ more is not always better. One drop of peppermint oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea.
They are also very easy to use. Simple is important for new moms who are sleep deprived and figuring out life with a baby. There are many ways to use essential oils: Rub on the bottom of the feet or different areas of the body (dilute with a carrier oil like coconut oil for children), smell the oil straight from the body, diffuse in a diffuser, put a few drops in a spray bottle.
A valuable resource for moms is Gentle Babies. This is a great book that I use all the time, even though I don't have babies anymore It has information about pregnancy, birth and health issues that you face in childhood and beyond.
My favorite oils to have on hand and to give as gifts are Lavender, Peppermint and Thieves, along with the book, Gentle Babies. There are so many that it is hard to choose, but these are my top ones:
Lavender is known as the "universal oil" and can be used for almost anything. No home should be without it. Lavender calms anxiety and is a natural stress reliever. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing - physically and emotionally. Lavender is excellent for medicinal purposes as well. It is also great for your skin! It can be applied neat (undiluted), inhaled or diffused.
A few of the many uses:
■Helps you get to sleep
■Bug bites/ bee stings
■Add to moisturizing cream and use on face
■Helps with bedwetting
