Harmonize the liver and gall bladder

The first remedy is to eat less.

Foods to Avoid are those high in saturated fats, Lard, Mammal meats, Cream, Cheese, Eggs

Avoid Hydrogenated and poor-quality fats, Shortening, Margarine

Avoid Refined and rancid oils

Excess nuts and seeds.  They should be unsalted, and lightly roasted.  Raw nuts easily become rancid, and harbor parasites.

Chemicals in foods and water

Processed foods

All intoxicants

Eat foods or herbs that stimulate the flow of liver-Qi energy.

From my book, “The Qi Life: Live A Better Life Pain Free Naturally”.

Essential Oils may support liver and gall bladder health.

Use 3 – 5 drops of a detoxification essential oil blend applied to liver area daily.  Note: A detoxification Blend you can purchase may include Clove, Geranium, Grapefruit and Rosemary, or in a roller ball combine 4 drops Geranium, 6 drops Rosemary, 6 drops Cilantro, 8 drops Juniper Berry, and fill remainder with FCO.

*Note:  most liver conditions have developed over long periods of time and rebuilding will take consistent application with patience over weeks and months.

Patchouli Essential Oil

Hello!

After the holiday’s my face likes to break out in blemishes. It’s mostly because of all the junk food I consume. The good thing is though, that I have dōTERRA Patchouli. I apply one to two drops of dōTERRA Patchouli to my favorite moisturizer to help promote a smooth, glowing complexion.

Patchouli has a rich, musky-sweet aroma and is regularly used in the perfume industry as well as in scented products such as laundry detergents and air fresheners. Besides its amazing fragrance, dōTERRA Patchouli has a wonderful grounding and balancing effect on emotions. Combined with Vetiver, can help calm emotions when applied to the bottom of feet. Also try dōTERRA Patchouli combined with Peppermint by applying to the forehead, temples, or back of the neck after a long day of work.

As a member of the mint family, Patchouli would make a great addition to your oral health routine. Try it as a mouth wash by checking out the link below:
