Brain Function & Weight Loss by Dr Oliver Wenker (Part 1 of 3)

 


Hi All, thought I’d share some of my notes from our recent seminar by Dr Olli Wenker (interesting name I know). I went there with my mom and my mother in law it was my first time going to a Young Living seminar with a speaker that flew down specifically to dispel his experience and studies about Essential Oil and it’s function on our brains. I’ll have to admit it sounded partially boring and I told my mom and mom in law  that we’ll chose a seat by the isle so if it get’s a bit dry we’ll make a quiet exit….

So turns out it wasn’t. I couldn’t stop writing down as much information as I could gather just by listening and avoiding as much as possible to not take any pictures of the presentation because they didn’t allow photography during the seminar, nightmare. Although I did sneak a few pictures of one or two slides only because I couldn’t write fast enough and I wanted to gather as much pictures as possible. The pictures you see in this blog is not pictures taken from Dr Olli but some visual aids that I researched on the internet for this post as to not bore you to death. But trust me, this is good stuff!

 ….so here goes….
Detoxification

Iman from http://www.edenspaskincare.com

  • Our body is riddled with over 300 toxic chemicals
  • 80 of these we already put on ourselves (esp. woman) before breakfast through, make-up, bath products, creams, serums, etc…
  • Our body consumes 2.5kg of very toxic chemicals every year! (Shocking!!)
  • During the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s the government started approving toxic chemicals into food, cosmetics, you name it products which is why now we are seeing a huge increase in chronic illnesses suck as obesity, cancer, neurological diseases etc. etc.
  • A test has found that a newborn baby just at birth already has 200+ chemicals in it’s body. Thanks mom!
  • Your body weight is a prime indicator of the amount of toxins in our body. (Body Weight = Toxins)
  • Test on breast cancer patents found over 40,000 toxins in the fat remaining in the breasts as compared to non-cancer women. What’s even more scary…
  • Children, on the other hand carry more fat in the brain
  • Women who are exposed to toxins will find that when they produce children generally by the time they turn 7-10years they will likely be obese
  • In order to loose weight you will need to detoxify your body
  • Tests have also found that toxins can remain in your body for as long as 40 years!
  • When you decide to tackle loosing weight you will need to take account of the ‘Brain’. Your hormone can tell the brain to be hungry making dieting very difficult to A. follow & B. maintain
  • One essential oil which helps with suppressing the brain’s desire to ‘feel’ hungry is Stress Away

  • Other great essential oils are Shutran / Grapefruit / Slique. They help by stimulating the
    lambic system of our brain which are like receptors and suppressing the  feeling of hunger
  • Your brain consists of the Lateral and the Ventromedial
    • The Lateral part of the brain are your hunger centre. Calming this part of the brain’s “hunger pangs” can work with inhaling Frankincense and/or the scent of Vanilla
  • Slique / Stress Away / Ningxia Red are some that helps with weight loss
  • Calming the lambic part of the brain makes us less hungry
  • Basically the best way to loose weight is 1) Watch what you eat 2) Work-Out 3) Essential Oils (of course!)
  • Smelling peppermind x3per day can help you loose 3k calories/week
  • Grapefruit increases metabolism
  • Getting less then 7hrs of sleep produces the reeling hormone that actually increases weight gain
  • Toxins are found in fatty tissue so one way in reducing weight is to also reduce your exposure to toxins
  • Every organ in your body i.e. Liver, Kidney, Skin, Lungs, Gut, Brain, Blood Cells are all working hard in trying to get rid of toxins in your body
What are some of the Other ways to Detox

  1. Sweat it out! But remember, you can’t out-exercise a bad diet.
  2. Include more berries in your diet *Ningxia Red
  3. Include Seaweed into your diet
  4. Raindrop Technique Massages
  5. Going to the Sauna – Sweating in off from the skin
  6. Go to the dentist and getting rid of your amalgam filling 
  7. Stop taking toxins – ‘Roundup’ found in chemical sprays on food should be eliminated – Go organic where possible

  8. Get rid of Floride toothpaste. Triclosan is a very very bad type of toxin and scarily it’s found in your fluoride toothpaste!
  9. Everything in the mouth get’s absorbed into the bloodstream really fast be careful of what you put in your mouth – Oral care leads to overall heath care

Next up in my next blog I will be dispensing my notes from Dr Olli Seminar on Thieves… Stay Tuned!

What are Harmful Chemicals?

What are Parabens?

Parabens are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. They’re chemicals found in beauty products to prevent bacteria and act as a preservative in deodorants, lotions, lipsticks, shampoos, scrubs, and more.

Are Parabens Safe?

Studies have shown that some parabens can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen and can potentially cause hormone (endocrine) system disruptions in the body’s cells. Estrogenic activity is associated with certain forms of breast cancer, and parabens have been found present in breast tumors.

What is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate?

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (commonly known as SLS) is a widely used and inexpensive chemical found in many personal hygiene products such as shampoos, toothpastes, mouthwashes, soaps, detergents, scalp treatments, hair color, bleaching agents, laundry detergents, make-up foundations and body wash.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a detergent and surfactant which essentially means that it breaks creates a lather which makes products such as shampoo and toothpaste more effective cleaners.

Although SLS originates from coconuts, the chemical is anything but natural. The real problem with SLES/SLS is that the manufacturing process (ethoxylation) results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic by-product.

Is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate safe?

According to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews, research studies on SLS have shown links to:

  • Irritation of the skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Developmental/reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer

What Is Triclosan?

Triclosan is an ingredient added to many consumer products intended to reduce or prevent bacterial contamination. It is added to some antibacterial soaps and body washes, toothpastes, and some cosmetics—products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It also can be found in clothing, kitchenware, furniture, and toys—products not regulated by the FDA.

How Safe Is Triclosan?

It is linked to liver toxicity, and even low levels of Triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. Further, the American Medical Association recommends that Triclosan not be used in the home, as it may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Wellness Starts from home

Like anything, the more we arm ourselves with information the more inclined we are to make a change and we hope that your decision to live toxic free at home would inspire someone else to do the same. It is actually not hard to go toxic free as you know Young Living has formulated products to take over the dangerous chemical products that you are currently using today.

Try it for yourself. We will be giving free sample Household Cleaners for you to take home for those who attend our Toxic Free Home Workshop.
