Hello, Wind Gate! 💨💨💨 The weather is still warm in Austin, but we’re never short of full on AC blowing down your neck. . . Chinese medicine teaches us there’s a reason to follow the instinct to cover up your neck and upper back when you feel air blowing on it or with shifts in the weather. You have points on the upper back known as “Wind Gate” or “Feng Men”, located at the acupuncture point Bladder 12, or either side of your 2nd thoracic vertebrae. In general, Wind Gate refers to the entire upper back and neck region. . . It’s taught in TCM that this area is where certain illnesses enter the body because these points are ‘open’, making the area susceptible to an invasion of Wind and “Evil Qi”. When our Wei Qi or defensive qi is strong, our immune system is humming along. But if we’re run down, we’re not able to ward off invasions as easily. . . Now is the perfect time to have your Wei Qi boosted to better adapt to the weather change and the exposure to the colds. A strong Wei Qi will also help with allergies. This support can be done with a combination of acupuncture, moxa, herbs and food recommendations. . . Takeaway? Cover up the back of your neck, turn off any fans blowing on this area, especially at night, follow instructions to protect this area after a cupping session, wear a light scarf as needed, and see your acupuncturist to boost your Wei Qi this fall. Woo woo! 💫🙌🏻 . . . . #acupuncture#chinesemedicine#tcm#immunesystem#allergies#colds#weiqi#windgate#herbalmedicine#selfcare#holistichealth#fall#immuneboost#austintexas#austintx#acupuncturelife#acupuncturist#scarf#changeofseasons#immunesupport
You’ve heard of Manuka honey right? And all it’s powerful health benefits? Well, Manuka honey isn’t the only amazing thing to come from the Manuka bush. Manuka essential oil is a wonderfully healing ingredient that’s comes from the leaves of this potent plant. The oil is extracted by steam distillation, and can be obtained using sustainable practices that don’t damage the health of the Manuka tree. 🙌🏻 Manuka essential oil has many similar properties as Manuka honey. It inhibits bacterial growth and combats inflammation. This means that it’s a fantastic ingredient to use in skincare products designed for sensitive, red, and reactive skin. It’s also great for pesky flare ups and random bumps. It’s soothing and gentle enough that I use it on my son’s faces (diluted) for wind burn and other random marks they come up with. If you get chapped winter skin, try Manuka! Because Manuka oil is extracted directly from the leaves and doesn’t involve the use of 🐝 bees and honey, it’s a great alternative for vegans who don’t use Manuka honey because they actively avoid products made from animals or animal by-products. 5ml Manuka is partnered up with Immupower free this month with your 300PV order. 🙌🏻 All the clear, supple skin and all the wellness!

I’ve posted this before and I feel it’s time to re post it. “DōTERRA is TOO Expensive!” That is a phrase I’ve heard too often. Yes, dōTERRA is a little more on the expensive side. Especially if you compare it to the prices of oils that you can buy at the grocery store or Walmart. Have you seen those oils? Have you looked at the bottles and read the warning labels? All of them tell you on the bottle that they are NOT safe to use topically or internally. Essential Oils are made from plants... so what are in THOSE oils?! If it’s not safe to use topically or internally is it really safe to use aromatically? You are breathing those chemicals in.. have you ever thought about that? Basically dōTERRA’s quality is the BEST and the PUREST which makes it that much more worth the money you spend. ______________________________________________ Take the time and do your research and when you break down the cost of using essential oils versus western medicine, you are actually saving money while preserving your health in a natural way. Since I started using essential oils my family and I have had less trips and copays at the Doctors office. We aren't using pricey, toxic filled pharmaceuticals. Natural solutions are worth every penny and it's actually only pennies per drop. Our oils are so pure that you only need one drop at a time. DōTERRA can help you feel just as fabulous on the inside as you do on the outside. _____________________________________________ So many people struggle with all sorts of ailments and yet they won't invest in their own health.

Confession time: I did not want to adult today. I woke up exhausted after a 3rd night in a row of interrupted sleep thanks to our sweet dog. I knew the day was going to be filled with multiple trips to school, nap time, sick kiddos, homework, housework, business building work and no time to truly sit and think. I just didn’t want to do today. I spent a lot of time today correcting my attitude and trying to not let my funk spill out on my sweet family. . . But as I prepared for my 3rd trip to school I grabbed this pink drink. It was just the boost I needed to push through the last part of my day and do it with more of smile on my face. . . As I kissed my babies tonight I thanked God for this magical pink drink and the opportunity I has given me to be home with my babies every day because of it. It truly was a game changer for me today and honestly it is all the other days too. . . Are you ready for a game changer? Mood changer? Gut health repair expert? Inflammation lessening? Immune booster? #immunesupport#gamechanger#lifechanging#inflammation#guthealth#selfcare
This has become a must have at night. Here is what it is filled with: This power-packed formula combines naturally-derived immune-supporting Ningxia wolfberry polysaccharides with a unique blend of reishi, maitake, and agaricus blazei mushroom powders to deliver powerful antioxidant activity to help reduce the damaging effects of oxidative stress from free radicals. ImmuPro provides zinc and selenium for proper immune function along with other chelated minerals which emerging science suggests are more easily absorbed by the body. It also delivers melatonin which encourages restful sleep by promoting the body's natural sleep rhythm.
