Since being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease, which is an Autoimmune disease of the Thyroid, I have done my utmost to learn as much as I can about this condition and take the steps needed for healing. 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 about the importance of GUT HEALTH as well as “cellular memory”.
With regard to cell memory, I learnt how even though I had long since worked though a particular childhood trauma, 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, through the role of the Phenylpropanoids, the receptor sites are cleaned, allowing the proper transfer of hormones, peptides, neurotransmitters, and other intracellular messengers,
- 2. Secondly, through the role of the Sesquiterpenes, the wrong information stored in the DNA is ‘deprogrammed’ or ‘erased’ from cellular memory
- 3. Thirdly, through the role of Monoterpenes, the cells are reprogrammed with the correct information so that they can function properly
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 home made products. I like to harness the power of Essential Oils during foot treatments that I offer, as part of Reset sessions with my clients.
