Top 10 Essential Oils for Immune Defense

Essential oils have been used for centuries as natural remedies to promote health and well-being. They are derived from natural plant extracts and can be used to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and even help fight off infections. In this article, we will discuss what the 10 best essential oils are and how they can be used to support immune system health.

Essential oils are a great way to boost your immunity and protect yourself from illnesses. They can be used in various ways, such as aromatically, topically, or even ingested. Essential oils are natural products that contain powerful compounds that can help support the immune system and fight off viruses and bacteria.

This 'Bitter and Pungent' oil is one of the most popular essential oils for boosting immunity. It can be used to break down difficult mucus and phlegm, giving your immune system a great boost. Additionally, myrrh may act as an expectorant to help clear lungs from congestion due to asthma, bronchitis, or even the common cold.  

An animal study found myrrh treatment induced an initial increase in white blood cell levels that persisted throughout the body post-injury throughout the healing period. So this shows if somebody has an injury, or again, they need an immune system boost, that myrrh oil could be one of the most powerful oils for doing that.

Despite its long-standing use, it's anti-inflammatory and immune system-strengthening properties are still well renowned.

I am a Zone Balance Practitioner & Coach, aka a FootZonologist.  
Because I have had this skill, I have been able to sustain some intense work with building what I have been called to build.  
For example, I have helped my adrenals when I couldn't wake up very well in the morning from being over taxed, my vagus nerve at the breathing point when I was under extreme stress putting on a huge retreat and through trauma recovery, balance my pineal gland to help keep creative ideas flowing into my mind in the mornings, my family though their sicknesses, myself be restored to the true Katie ~ fun, playful, excited about life!   
Those of us with this level of training have the depth in understanding the body with the signal system of the feet, back, hand or face!  If you need a Zone or are interested in becoming a Footzonologist and are near the Salt Lake City, Utah area, look here or contact me.    

The next set of classes begins each Spring in Salt Lake City area with the Footzonology Institute.

I also highly recommend Yolaunda Keith.   801.678.9899  She facilitates in a variety of emotional releasing methods and has been such a blessing for me over the last years.  She can also help long distance!
In August 2014, I organized a woman's retreat for the Foundation Builder Guide.  I also finished the first year of the Symbolic-Learning Home Resources for that program to be distributed there.  It was a huge amount of work in a couple months.  Well, the week before the event, I began having "anxiety attacks" where I couldn't breath normally and had pain in my chest.  Never happened before!  So I pulled out all my tools.  I prayed for protection, did yoga & breathing, releasing fear and replacing with positive statements, used Essential oils and received a priesthood blessing.  All these helped.  The blessing helped the most.  But, the difficulty breathing came back.  I had the thought to call Yolaunda.  She worked with me long distant and the attack was completely gone!  We found it was stemming from trauma in my childhood which had not completely been released.  I was able to complete my commitments without have that debilitating condition.  Hallelujah and praise the Lord, for real, for gifted earthly angels!!  
When this happened a second time a few months later, I pulled up my feet and did a ZoneBalance treatment and it was gone.  My Vagus Nerve to the lungs was thrown out of balance.  I had no idea this was going on and so glad to learn more of the benefits of the ZoneBalance.  God be praised for the restoration of the ZoneBalance!

Got questions about Immunizations?
See this Hearing from 2000 with many Dr. and researchers sharing.  I read an article from the Dr. Singh (read at 1/3 the way down from that Hearing link), published in the Utah State magazine about how important the Immune System is in being able to handle those injections.  Read that here.

Here is a great video on the benefits about Movement.  Motivational!
