In my quest to educate others about the benefits of alternative or holistic modalities, I spend many hours reading up on different methods of body work. This week, I am focusing on the work of Dr. LeAnne Deardeuff, DC. Dr. Deardeuff also uses essential oils in her practice, and she has written and published a very informative, easy-to-read book titled, “Ultimate Balance – Infusing the Vibrational Energy of Essential Oils into Chakras, Meridians and Organs.” (www.essentialscience.net).
I am thoroughly enjoying this book as it combines energy work with essential oils, and it explains how any one can use the oils for their own specific health routine, and the relationship between our body organs, meridians, chakras and our thoughts and feelings. This book takes energy work with essential oils one step further; it adds the chakras and explains what time of day is optimal to work on a specific body organ.
I have been reading about the adrenal glands, as many of us suffer from adrenal fatigue without even knowing it. I did for many years and was mis-diagnosed, and it wasn’t until I went to a naturopathic doctor that I learned about the adrenals. The adrenal glands are very small in size, and are at the top of our kidneys, one on each side at the top of the kidney. These organs are designed to boost our energy levels and to produce corticosteroid hormones. They require vitamin B and trace minerals to achieve their goal. Minerals help manufacture steroidal hormones as well as serving as a co-factor in liver enzymes that digest the necessary fats that our adrenal hormones need.
Some symptoms of adrenal exhaustion are:
Always active, or ‘on-the-go’.
Difficulty in starting in the morning.
Feeling jittery or ‘wired’ inside.
Experience high anxiety frequently.
These are just a few of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and adrenal fatigue can often times be mis-diagnosed and therefore, mistreated.
The solar plexus chakra (yellow) is the chakra that coincides with the adrenal glands. The optimum time of day to ‘work’ with the adrenal glands, according to Dr. Deardeuff, is between the hours of 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Dr. Deardeuff suggests using the following essential oils/blends at this specific time of day: Endoflex, N-R-Gee, Hope, Surrender, Nutmeg, or Clove. Dr. Deardeuff uses the Young Living brand of oils, and she also suggests using Thyromin, Ultra Young Spray, SuperB, and Mineral Essence products, also from the Young Living line.
There are several ways to use essential oils, and each person’s body will have its own unique sensitivity, so it is important to learn which method works best for you. Following is a breakdown of the different methods of usage:
NEAT – This means directly on the skin. Many people use a carrier oil under the essential oil, such as Almond or Grapeseed, if they have sensitive skin.
INHALING – Using the oils manner allows the molecules to be delivered directly to the limbic center of the brain. You can either inhale from the bottle, or place a few drops on the right palm of your hand and rub your hands together, and inhale.
CAPSULES – You can use an eyedropper to drop 10-15 drops into each capsule. The capsules can then be swallowed.
RECTAL OR VAGINAL IMPLANTS – You can place the same capsules into your rectum or your vagina. IF you choose to place them in your vagina, it is very important to use a carrier oil as well so that the area is not burned. A good dilution is seven drops of essential oil to one tablespoon of V-6, a vegetable oil product from Young Living, or a cold-pressed vegetable oil of equal quality.
COMPRESSES – You can make warm or cold compresses with the essential oils.
