Strange Happenings ~ Hemp Oil Update

by Dana Taylor

It’s been a few months since I was introduced to Prime My Body Hemp Oil. A few of my friends purchased a bottle. Most reported a calming effect and better sleep. Beyond that, no great testimonials. As for myself, I’ve taken it sporadically, when I remembered. Like the others, I could feel the calming effect. Since I have no known health issues or pain problems, I mainly continued consuming based on the research that it supports the vital endocannabinoid system. But, not “feeling” anything, I wondered if I had invested in a lot of snake oil.

Then, something very odd happened. My eyesight began to change. I am near sighted. I’ve been wearing glasses since the seventh grade. I am now 63 years old. I’ve gradually needed stronger lenses through the years. About a month ago, while visiting my daughter, it suddenly seemed as if my glasses were too strong. Strangely, one night my glasses somehow landed in the middle of my dark bathroom floor and I stomped on them. What a bother! Frankly, in my world “accidents” generally have a purpose. Fortunately, I had brought along my much older glasses, probably 20 years old, as my back ups. I dug them out and much to my amazement, they were much more comfortable than my newer glasses.

Signs in the distance that had previously been blurry with them on, were in focus. How bizarre! I found myself puttering around the house without my glasses on at all. Things close up were in better focus without any lenses upon my face.

I could not figure out what was going on, until I had a conversation last week with a friend. In passing he said he knew someone who had been taking CBD oil and had stopped wearing his glasses. Wait, what???

Could it be the CBD hemp oil was behind the change of my eyesight? As I understand it, the CBD wouldn’t be directly responsible for any change, but would aid the body’s own endocannabinoid system to work more efficiently. As we age, the neuroreceptors that bond the natural cannabinoids the body produces decline in number. Taking hemp oil has a two-fold benefit. It lengthens the time our cannabinoids are effective and it encourages regeneration of the neuroreceptors, which in turn encourages more personal cannabinoid production. At least that’s the theory.

At any rate, this subtle regeneration of my eyesight has encouraged me to continue taking the hemp oil. What other benefits may be happening that I’m not “feeling?” We live in a society of instant gratification. But, regeneration and healing takes place over the course of time.

My intuition tells me to stick with it. As more research is done on hemp oil and the endocannabinoid system, the potential for improving people’s health is enormous.

Is Hemp Oil the Next Big Thing?

DanaTaylor.PrimeMyBody.com

In 1988, after watching my mother succumb to cancer and harsh medical treatments, I embarked on a personal journey for wellness through a holistic approach to health–diet, exercise, and spiritual growth. I wanted a fresh approach to life. As the saying goes, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  A network marketing company soon introduced me to the philosophy of regeneration through whole food supplements, followed in a couple years by a start-up essential oil company. Both companies changed my life and are now huge multinational corporations. While I still faithfully consume their products, I haven’t been an active business builder in a long while. Life got in the way.

Now, I find myself in a position to concentrate time and energy on new projects. Once again, I am the “ready student.” This time my adventures in health trends has taken me to hemp oil (CBD oil). While hemp, like marijuana, is a member of the cannibis family, the CBD oil derived from hemp is very low in the active psychoactive cannibinoid THC, which is illegal in most states. Research on CBD is revealing major benefits for  a healthy lifestyle.

Why is hemp oil suddenly trending in popularity? An Internet search reveals:

  • True Wellness Knowledge.com ~ Cannibidiol (CBD) is a compound found in cannibis that has medical effects, but does not make a person feel “stoned.” CBD-rich cannibis may make it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, and/or anti-spasm effects without disconcerting euphoria or lethargy.
  • Regenerative Nutrition.com ~ Hemp has had a long-standing relationship with humanity; modern science reveals that it contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary for human life, as well as a rare protein known as globule edestins that is very similar to the globulin found in human blood plasma.
  • ZLiving.com ~ High in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and omega 3, hemp oil can be used to increase immunity, counteract aging skin and improve cardiovascular health. Several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process and fight psoriasis.

However, all hemp oil products are not equal. The biggest problem with most products is their absorption rate into the system, which is often less than 10%.  Which hemp oil product looks the most promising? My research has led me to a young company that utilizes nano chemistry to cross the cell barrier and deliver beneficial hemp oil at the cellular level.

Introducing Prime My Body

Flagship product: Nanoenanced Hemp Oil

  • PrimeMyBody combines nanoenhanced technology with a sustainable, naturally grown hemp oil, which has been used for a wide range of healthy benefits dating back more than 3,000 years. Their formula helps to optimize the mind & body, efficiently and naturally.

How I Prayed Away a Yard of Ticks

Danaheadshot by Dana Taylor

My Facebook feed has a lot of Lyme disease stories nowadays. Whenever I visit my family in Missouri, we do a tick search everyday on the children. I’ve picked up a few myself. Being raised in California, I’d never seen a tick until I married an Oklahoman and moved to Oklahoma City. Here’s a story of my early tick encounter that might inspire and amuse.

The year was 1983. Our family moved into a new rent house in Edmond, Oklahoma, that had a nice back yard. With a dog, a cat, a four-old-daughter and a 9 month-old  baby, it seemed like a good location. When the temperatures rose, I noticed something strange. One day after being outside there were creepy, reddish bugs crawling inside my baby’s diaper. The next day the dog had swollen things hanging off of her. When my husband came home from work, I had him examine the dog. 

“What is that?” I asked.

He dug through the dog’s fur and grumbled, “Ticks.”

It took a moment to register. “Ticks?…TICKS! The yard is full of ticks??!! What do we do?”

He shrugged. “Call the landlord, I guess, and ask him to spray the yard. Better keep the kids inside for a while.” 

So much for having a nice yard to play in. If a call was made to the landlord, I don’t remember, but no one took any action. I tick powdered the dog (no Advantage in those days), pulled off ticks, banished the cat, kept the kids inside and got progressively more frustrated.

seagullThose were my early days of exploring the power of prayer. I was learning to take concerns to the Divine for help. Eventually, I asked about the darn ticks. As synchronicity would have it, I read a book about the early Mormons settling in Utah. One story jumped out at me. In 1848 the settlers planted crops, only to have swarms of what came to be called “Mormon crickets” feast upon their growing stalks and decimate the plants. The people tried stomping and beating the bugs, but were far out numbered. In desperation, the farmers and their families prayed for Divine help. June 9, 1848 is designated as The Miracle of the Gulls. Hundreds of seagulls flew in from the Great Salt Lake and descended upon the insects. The Mormons gave God the credit for sending all the birds to eat the bugs and save their crops. The California gull is the Utah State bird and a monument stands to commemorate the miracle.

I decided to pray for a little miracle of my own. I didn’t really want pounds of poison spread all over my yard, killing every good insect and possibly making us all sick. If the Mormons could call in legions of seagulls in huge fields, maybe I could attract a few robins, cardinals, and sparrows in one backyard. I began visualization. I’d stare at the yard, picturing birds walking in the grass, pecking at all those ticks. I mentally invited birds over to our house. Come here, birdies. And guess what…they came! First a few, and then more and more. Every time I glanced out the window, feathered friends were cleaning the yard. After a couple of weeks, the dog came in tick free and we began playing outside again. 

It was a wonderful lesson in prayer, visualization, and manifestation. The Law of Attraction is real. It’s important to remember, we attract what we’re visualizing–even if we don’t want it. As far as ticks and Lyme disease goes, I visualize a shield of protective energy around my family.

3399If a tick is discovered, we immediately apply Purification Young Living essential oil to the bite site and on the bottom of the feet. Actually, daily application of Purification strengthens the immune system and acts as an insect repellant.

SY9F7lGThis week I saw this meme about the benefits of opossums controlling the tick population. Maybe this summer I will visualize and invite more opossums to the property. I can see it now, The Miracle of the Opossums….

Have a great day–

Backache Relief with Energy Healing

Dana by Dana Taylor

Have you got the low miseries with back aches? If popping pain meds isn’t doing the trick, try boosting your natural healing abilities by thinking energetically. Your body is designed to heal. Here are some actions you can take to move toward wellness.

  1. Epsom Salt Bathsepsom saltThe magnesium in the salts is anti-inflammatory. The hot water helps release tension and stimulates the natural flow of body fluids to aid in healing.
  2. Young Living Essential OilsValor is sometimes called a “chiropractor in a bottle.” The blend of spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense aids in the energy alignment of the body. The aroma is also very soothing. Layer peppermint on top for what I call “a massage in a bottle.” The stimulating effect of peppermint oil really kicks healing energy into action.
  3. Healing Energyenergy handsHealing energy frequencies are flowing around us, all the time. As a Reiki practitioner, I’ve learned how to consistently tap into them. But, anyone can get into the flow with some practice. Sit quietly and imagine a light beam from the heavens shining into the head and running  through the body. Our energy centers will open to the higher energies, like absorbing unseen, but very real rays of the sun.
  4. Enzyme Rich FoodsCooked foods are dead foods. Life begets life. Most of us don’t have nearly the enzyme activity needed from our food to provide the energy for optimum health. Healing requires extra energy. So, bump up your enzymatic activity by eating more raw, live food and whole food supplements. I recommend juicing and a quality supplement like Green Vibrance. Give your body the building blocks of nutrition it needs to heal itself.
  5. Examine your Emotions–often back problems have a relationship to “carrying troubles.” Be honest with yourself about the conflicts in your life. There may be a connection between that aching back and emotional pain, anger, or unforgiveness. If you can’t clear those emotional blockages on your own, seek a therapist who will help you work through them.

Be pro-active about your health and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Wishing you well–

Frankincense and Myrrh, Ancient Remedies for Modern Times


Dana
 by Dana Taylor

 

wise-men

Every child who ever attended Sunday school knows that the three wise men (aka The Magi named Balthasar, Gaspar, and Melchoir) brought presents of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus. If you knew you would be seeing the son of God, the savior of the world, what would you bring as an appropriate gift? Certainly it would be something highly valuable. Today, gold would still be in the running, not to mention diamonds, and the latest electronic gadget. Why did the wise men two thousand years ago chose frankincense and myrrh? What are they exactly and what made them so valuable?

Frankincense and myrrh are essential oils.  Frankincense is distilled from the Boswellia tree that grows in Somalia, Oman, and Yemen. Myrrh, comes from the commiphora myrrha tree also found in the rocky soils of the mid east and Africa. Both are gum resins derived from the sticky sap of the trees.

For some 5,000 years pack animals and ships ventured across Asia, Africa, and Europe on thriving trade routes to disperse frankincense and myrrh throughout the ancient world. References to both religious and medicinal uses are recorded in historical accounts. The Greek historian, Herodotus, cites their usage in Egyptian animal sacrifices and human mummy preservation. African societies have burned frankincense for centuries to ward off illness. Science is now supporting the idea that it works as an insect repellant against the mosquitos that carry tropical diseases.

The most valuable knowledge to modern man may be in the medicinal uses of them as time-honored remedies. Frankincense is high in several therapeutic chemical constituents, including sesquiterpenes, known to stimulate the limbic system of the brain. It appears to have a balancing affect on the hormone-producing glands of the brain–the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary. Thus, frankincense is known for its mood uplifting benefits.

 Frankincense is a master essential oil and used to treat a wide range of ailments including immune disorders, chronic diseases, and tumors. Maladies associated with frankincense include infections, ulcerative colitis, osteoarthritis, and even cancer. It is on the GRAS list (Generally Regarded as Safe) and can be ingested in very limited amounts. Check with the manufacturer to make sure it stands behind any internal use their product.

Myrrh is thicker and stickier than frankincense and became widely used for skin care in ancient times. Egyptian traders survived the harsh Arabian deserts by placing cones of fat laced with essential oils on their heads that melted during the day and gave their skin a protective coating. Myrrh served as a sunscreen and is being rediscovered today for its beautifying properties. Today it can be found in toothpastes, skin creams, and ointments for natural skin care. Chinese medicine cites benefits to the circulatory system and female disorders.

Essential oils can be utilized in a variety of ways:

  • Neat application–a few drops applied straight from the bottle to the skin. Place either on an area of concern, or infuse into the system by rubbing onto the bottom of the feet, most effectively after a bath or shower.
  • Diluted–Mixed with a carrier oil such as avocado, sesame, or olive, essential oils are massaged on the back or affected area.
  • Diffused–Released into the air by using a mechanical diffuser, the essential oils are gently inhaled and absorbed through the lungs.

So the next time you hear about the three wise men following that bright star across the Holy Lands to Bethlehem, take a moment to realize how gratified Mary and Joseph must have been to receive such precious gifts. In choosing gold, frankincense, and myrrh as presents for the baby Jesus, the Magi revealed great wisdom indeed for offering gifts of great value to honor the newborn King.
