As already mentioned on my website, (http://sparklingforest.co.za/what-does-living-whole-mean-to-me/) over the last couple of years I have been on a journey of healing from Hashimoto’s Disease. It has been an interesting time of discovery during which I have learnt so much.
While consulting a Homeopath to assist me in understanding this Autoimmune Disease, I learnt about “cellular memory”. I learnt how even though I had worked though a particular childhood trauma both emotionally and spiritually, my body was still carrying the memory of the trauma, which in turn, was still affecting my health. I started praying into this and asking God how I would be able to ‘heal’ my distorted cellular memory.
Over time, He revealed to me that one of the ways to alter or ‘reprogram’ our cells, is through the use of Essential Oils. At the time I did not understand much about these precious oils, so I began to find out as much as I could about them and their amazing properties.
There is so much one could write about these oils and one can get quite technical trying to explain it all, but in terms of cellular memory, in a nutshell, this is how it works. Apparently three important constituents in Essential Oils, namely Phenylpropanoids, Monoterpenes, and Sesquiterpenes (also known as “PMS”) work together in a very powerful way.
- 1. Firstly, the receptor sites are cleaned, allowing the proper transfer of hormones, peptides, neurotransmitters, and other intracellular messengers, (this is the role of the Phenylpropanoids).
- 2. Secondly, the wrong information stored in the DNA is ‘deprogrammed’ or ‘erased’ from cellular memory (role of the Sesquiterpenes)
- 3. Thirdly, the cells are reprogrammed with the correct information so that they can function properly (role of Monoterpenes).
Aside from reprogramming DNA, Essential Oils have endless properties and uses that can benefit us.
According to David Steward (“The Blood- Brain Barrier), one drop of essential oil contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. We have 100 trillion cells in our bodies. One drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our bodies with 40, 000 molecules!
I use Essential Oils on myself for the purposes of assisting my thyroid, reprogramming cellular memory and my overall health and well-being. I also use Essential Oils on my family (kids included) and in my business. I like to harness the power of Essential Oils during particular Reflexology treatments that I offer, as well as during counsel and prayer sessions with my clients.
