It amazes me how many clients reach out or come to me and proceed to tell me all about their “clean” eating habits. They tell me how they only eat wholesome, organic foods and never eat fast food. Then their next question is “What vitamins can you recommend?” to help with weight management. Or they hand me a list of vitamins and supplements they take that someone sold them or told them they should take. As the last part of my National Nutrition Month series, I’m dropping some knowledge about vitamins and minerals and what they ACTUALLY do for us (HINT! It has NOTHING to do with giving you more energy).
As a yogi and holistic health practitioner, I have become fascinated with the role essential oils can play in our health and well-being. Mr E knows I can’t go to sleep at night without my diffuser running. And whenever I get sick, the I turn to the oils before I go to the medicine cabinet. Which is why I’m thrilled to start a new guest post series on Nutrition Nuptials from essential oils expert, Lauren Clyne. Today she’s talking about all about how to battle flu season with essential oils.
You may have heard that this flu season has been one of the worst. Not only that, but the flu vaccine effectiveness is being reported at somewhere between 10% and 30%. That hardly gives me warm and fuzzy feelings, but have no fear, that doesn’t mean we have to suffer as we have safe and effective alternatives at our fingertips.
