Psoriasis is a non-infectious skin disorder that is marked by skin patches or flaky skin that can occur in limited areas – such as the scalp – or that can cover up to 80-90% of the body. The overly rapid growth of skin cells is the primary cause of psoriasis. In some cases, skin cells grow four times faster than normal, resulting in the formation of silvery layers that flake off.

Treating Psoriasis with pH Balance
Psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, dry skin, allergies, and similar problems indicate an excessive acidic pH in the body. The more acid in the blood and skin the less you will see a therapeutic effect from therapeutic-grade essential oils. People who have a negative reaction to therapeutic-grade essential oils are usually highly acidic.
An alkaline balance must be obtained and then maintained in the blood and skin for the essential oils to work the best.
Young Living’s supplements AlkaLime and MultiGreens are both helpful for this balancing and knowing effective ways to restore the body to an Alkaline pH. If you also have fungus issues you will see improvement regarding that problem as will when you begin making your body more alkaline. Continue reading →
An alkaline environment in the body is hostile to fungi (and I might also add, hostile to many types of cancer), which require acidity to survive and thrive. Lowered yeast and fungus (read more about Vaginal Yeast and Fungus at the end of this article) populations translate into lower levels of body-damaging, disease-inducing mycotoxins. Some of the most common varieties of pathogenic bacteria, yeast, and fungi that live in the intestines are inactive. However, when the body is weakened by illness, stress, and excess acidity caused by stress, these bacteria become harmful and active, changing into an invasive mycelic form.
The importance of alkalinity to health is something we all might consider paying more attention to – it alone can mean a better quality of health, or a poor quality of health. As the liver’s filtered ability becomes impaired the blood becomes increasing acidic, unfriendly bacteria and fungi that populate our intestinal tracts thrive in an acid environment and are responsible for secreting mycotoxins, which are the root cause of many debilitating human conditions. In fact, many researchers believe that most diseases can be linked to blood and intestinal acidity, which contributes to an acid-based yeast and fungus dominance.
Here is a list of some ways I use Young Living’s essential oils and products in place of conventional products found in the stores. This is only a partial listing, there are many more ways to use the essential oils and products. I use this list as a guideline for ways to make toxic products in my home a thing of the past. All of Young Living’s products contain therapeutic-grade essential oils no matter which you choose.
How many of you have been buying organic produce for 20 years or longer? Have you noticed what I have… that there is no difference between the so-called organic and regular produce in your supermarket or health food store??? I have, I noticed a difference around 1998.
True organic produce smells, feels, and tastes very different than conventionally grown. The first clue that gave it away for me was the fact that real organic produce has much less water in the plants, noticeably less, so much so that you can see it with your own eyes and feel it with your fingers! When I noticed that the organic produce I was buying looked and felt as moist as the conventional, I knew something was wrong.
Organic produce also goes bad in the fridge much differently than conventional. True organic, pretty much dehydrates and becomes limp. Whereas conventionally grown rots, smells foul, gets moldy (from all the moisture), slimy, etc. In my unscientific tests I have found there is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between the organic produce and conventional produce in taste, smell, touch, and going bad in my fridge.

Probiotic (means “for life”) are sometimes known as healthy intestinal flora or beneficial bacteria and have long been used to culture yogurt, sauerkraut and other fermented foods.
Recently, science is revealing that probiotics are more vital than anyone ever imagined and are especially beneficial for the bowel. Many don’t realize that the bowel is the source of core health and vitality. It is there that the all-important transfer of nutrients to the bloodstream takes place. It is also the command center of the immune system and eliminator of waist products. For the bowel to work properly a partnership with billions and billions of probiotics is necessary for every critical intestinal function. Continue reading →
Calcium is in the news and headlines. The New England Journal reads… “Studies show limited Benefits for Calcium.” Interestingly, the article is referring to Calcium Carbonate and Vitamin D as a preventative for broken bones. The medical profession just discovered that Calcium Carbonate doesn’t work. It is about time! Calcium Carbonate is chalk. The human body is NOT designed to process and utilize chalk! It can cause arthritis and calcium deposits.
Calcium Lactate and Calcium Citrate are digestible in the body. But to really help effectively they use Magnesium along with Vitamin D to help absorption. Vitamin C also helps with the absorption of Calcium. To prevent broken bones, add Phosphorus also. Boron is also in the bone matrix. Trace minerals are also essential for strong bones. The right mix of calcium and minerals help nerves, muscles and organs function.
Hmmm, could it possible that the New England Journal of Medicine article and the industry are influenced by the big pharma industry who is pushing bone health drugs on us that come with side effects???
Clearly, these activity scores demonstrate NingXia Red does have the highest S-ORAC, ORAC, and SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) activity among its competitors [results are from the third party Brunswick Lab].
You would have to consume daily to equal one ounce of NingXia Red:
