Homeopathic, Naturopathic, or Holistic, Good Question?

Homeopathic or naturopathic may seem confusing when you are looking for natural healing practitioner and medicine.  This blog will try to define them with some clarity. However, holistic medicine, homeopaths, or naturopathic doctors (NDs) have basic principles in common. They acknowledge the body’s natural healing abilities and respect the patient’s role within the healing process.

 Bacteria, Superbugs, And Viruses….Oh My!

 Bacteria, Superbugs, And Viruses….Oh My!

 Bacteria, Superbugs, And Viruses….Oh My!  What does the research say about them? What can we do for prevention?  This is an extension to my blog I wrote in December 2018  https://www.immune8.com/blog/whats+the+difference+between+bacterial+and++virus+infections?/

The word germ is a general term used to describe bacteria, viruses, protozoa, or fungi. Germs can live anywhere from surfaces we touch, our air, our water, on plants, animals, and in us. The Mayo Clinic described these germs for us.

  • Bacteria. These one-cell organisms are responsible for illnesses such as strep throat, urinary tract infections and tuberculosis.
  • Viruses. Even smaller than bacteria, viruses cause a multitude of diseases ranging from the common cold to AIDS.
  • Fungi. Many skin diseases, such as ringworm and athlete’s foot, are caused by fungi. Other types of fungi can infect your lungs or nervous system.
  • Parasites. Malaria is caused by a tiny parasite that is transmitted by a mosquito bite. Other parasites may be transmitted to humans from animal feces.

Transmission can be done directly or indirectly. Directly is from person to person or by insects or other animals. Indirectly transmission is by contaminated food or water or being exposed to organisms in the environment.

What are the benefits of Rosewood Essential Oil?

Rosewood Essential Oil

Aniba rosaeodora

Family: Lauraceae -shrubs, and trees having flowers with definite stamens in several series of three, united sepals, no petals, and a single pistil

The Immune 8 blend consists of eight 100 % pure therapeutic grade essential oils of Cinnamon leaf, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Rosewood, Tea tree, White camphor.

Being 100% pure therapeutic grade oil indicates that it has been analyzed with gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) lab procedures to ensure quality and that no added fillers such as synthetics are added. Look for “organic” to ensure no pesticides or chemicals were used while growing.

The reason “why” I added Rosewood into my blend was because of its anti-microbial (ability to destroy the virus and bacteria), anti-septic, and anti-depressant potential. Furthermore, Rosewood is a cellular stimulant for the immune system, tissue regenerator, and tonic.

Chronic Disease – What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple Sclerosis 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is believed to be discovered by Charcot in 1868, who made the first real clear description of MS. MS is defined as an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation that attacks the Central Nervous System (CNS), thus destroying the myelinated sheets leading to lesions or plaques that block signals to vital organs, muscles, and the brain. Multiple, meaning many, and sclerosis, meaning scar (sclerae hardening, plaques, or lesions). MS is classified as a neurological disorder. This chronic disease usually appears between the ages of 20-40 in adults. Also, this disease affects more women than men. MS develops differently in everyone and is hard to diagnose.
