Cold And  Flu Season  Immune Booster
During the Winter or Spring, when the temperature starts changing, the flu becomes a hot topic. The common symptoms are easily recognizable such as chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort. Although the symptoms of the cold can be mistaken for the flu, either can be quite miserable.
We have had plenty of information on how the flu is spread. The main target of the virus is the respiratory system. Flu can be highly dangerous for children, the elderly, or people with a weak immune system.
Parents, co-workers, teachers and children work hard to stay away from discharges from the mouth and nose from infected persons. We know that washing our hands can be the best prevention. We will discuss what to wash or clean with to boost your immune system at a later time.
An interesting fact: The influenza virus has great genetic variation, this can cause the frequent epidemics, caused by different strains of the virus. Understanding how a virus works is helpful. The virus can modify itself in each host. This makes treating a virus tricky with modern medicine.
Usually the vaccine is reformulated each season for a few specific flu strains but because of the virus’ ability to mutate, they cannot possibly include all the strains actively infecting people in the world for that season. To make a vaccine it takes about six months to formulate and produce the millions of doses required to deal with the seasonal epidemics; occasionally, a new or overlooked strain becomes prominent during that time and infects people although they have been vaccinated given for virus treat the symptoms to make you more comfortable and aren’t actually treating the virus itself.
GOOD NEWS: Virus are sensitive to natural compounds that are found in the essential oils. Research has found that the influenza virus is particularly sensitive to essential oils that are high in monoterpine phenols and terpenoid ketones. Research has also found that essential oils have a powerful impact on the immune system to protect us. The primary reason is the fact that the essential oils and our cells/tissue are lipid soluble. Further, research has shown that many of these oils raise chemical markers in the body which indicate positive stimulation of the immune system. Essential oils may provide a dual-protective effect: by increasing the strength and efficiency of our immune response AND by limiting the ability of viruses to replicate.
So why the Raindrop Technique? The Raindrop Technique utilizes 9 different essential oils that have been heavily researched. These 9 essential oils have been selected to work together when combined to simultaneously kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation, support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed muscles, curb digestive upset and relieve body and joint discomfort, as well as balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm and increase the ability to concentrate. The entire technique takes about 45-60 minutes to complete, and the oils continue to work in the body for up to one week. Safe for children and also helps children with ADHD!
Can you see how powerful it could be during the flu session to have a Raindrop once a week?
We would love to teach you how you can share this technique with your family! Ask your therapist.
CAUTION: The Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy body is the result of a well rounded program of exercise, proper diet and nutrition. Health is everything we do, say, hear, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only a tool to help us restore balance.
