7 Essential Oils for Weight Loss

Published January 3, 2017 by pattinorthey

Essential oils play a supportive role in so many ways. From relieving side effects of treatments to ameliorating effects of illnesses, it’s often the indirect benefits that are felt the strongest. For weight loss, this list is just a starting point – get creative with your oil “stash” to see what might help you achieve your weight loss goals.
1. Lime

Of the well-researched citrus oils, lime in particular has had very promising results regarding weight loss. One study, published in 2010, observed lime essential oil both assisting weight loss and preventing weight gain. The study concluded: The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases. (1) For anyone who has packed on weight after a procedure or prescription, this comes as welcome news! Application: Include lime in culinary recipes, topical formulas, and diffusion blends to maximize a wide range of actions.

2. Grapefruit

Another much-loved citrus oil, grapefruit shatters our expectations of what a weight loss tool should be. Instead of yet another thing to drink, eat, or take, grapefruit seems to be just as effective in other ways. In evaluating the effects that grapefruit and lavender oils have after simply being smelled, researchers found that nerve impulses were affected extensively, leading to fat-burning and appetite-reducing benefits. (2) Topically, grapefruit is a cosmetic boost during weight loss efforts. As part of a topical blend massaged onto the abdomen, grapefruit contributed to reduced waist-circumferences and composition changes, boosting self-image for the women who participated. (3) Application: Include grapefruit in lotion and massage oil blends; diffuse before and during meals.

3. Cinnamon

The primary evaluation for cinnamon in various forms centers around diabetes itself, and cinnamon oil has been able to modify glycemic control in those cases. Additionally, in one recent study, researchers were able to observe some pancreatic protection – the pancreas being our center for insulin regulation. (4) For diabetics, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is paramount, and glycemic control is part of the process. For everyone else, protecting the pancreas and helping the body better deal with glucose can be beneficial for weight loss, as well. Application: Enjoy a drop or two diffused in stimulating weight loss blends or diluted into culinary or internal preparations.

4. Peppermint

Considered a mild stimulant, peppermint has been studied for its ability to improve athletic performance and endurance. Chances are, reading this far into an article about weight loss, you aren’t an athlete. Baby steps and good choices will get you to your goals, though, and that’s where peppermint comes into play. As a digestive herb, the peppermint plant has been enjoyed with meals in many cultures and for countless generations. As an inhaled essential oil, it has another suggested digestive purpose: affecting appetite and caloric intake. (5) Application: Diffuse with grapefruit for a bright scent that may also brighten up your daily calorie count!

5. Cardamom

Indicated in traditional and folk uses for weight control, one suspected reason behind this may be cardamom’s gastroprotective effects. As a digestive oil, cardamom has been known to protect the stomach against ulcers and damage. (6) Weight loss and control begins and ends in the stomach, not only what you eat but the way your body uses it. Damage in the stomach and the gut can put a damper on even the best diet. Take care of your gut and it will take care of you! Application: Culinary preparations, or dilution into a capsule. As with all oils indicated for internal use, one or two drops at a time is more than sufficient.

6. Cumin

We don’t know a lot about cumin essential oil yet, but what we do know is promising. The whole herb, for example, is often used to combat inflammation and diabetes. It’s this direction that researchers followed in 2005. In evaluating the chemical composition of cumin seeds, the study was able to pinpoint specific ways in which cumin – notably, some of the compounds found in the essential oil – affects the body’s blood sugar response. (7) Cumin is considered a digestive herb and essential oil, certainly worth trying out in your weight loss blends. Application: Try cumin in culinary preparations or simply diffused as part of a blend.

7. Black Pepper

To really demonstrate thinking outside of the box for weight loss support, let’s turn to black pepper. In the 1990s, black pepper essential oil was used via inhalation to help reduce the symptoms of withdrawal for people as they quit smoking. (8) How might this benefit weight loss? The spiral of food addiction is often part of weight management problems, especially related to sugar. Taking care of your body as you make changes is important – going “cold turkey” on anything can create problems. Perhaps black pepper will help you take these steps as it did for smokers. You never know until you try! Application: Diffusion and personal inhalers.

Diffusing Blend for Weight Loss Support

Try this stimulating, appetite-curbing combination for use around workout times, when cravings hit, or during mealtimes. Add 2 drops of the following oil blend in a gel cap for occasional support. Be sure to discontinue use immediately if acid reflux develops (can sometimes happen with peppermint).

Weight Loss Blend – equal parts of:

Grapefruit

Peppermint

Lime

Cinnamon

For aromatherapy, add 5 drops each to a diffuser!

Top Doctors Are Now Warning Anyone Over 40 To Stop Taking Ibuprofen Immediately

Published December 8, 2016 by pattinorthey

It seems common for us to be prescribed ibuprofen for nearly every symptom we have. Headaches, toothaches, back pain. Doctors are set on directing their patients to take pill after pill and the pain never permanently goes away. We find ourselves waking up with that same headache or that same neck pain, morning after morning. It’s like a revolving door of hurt and frustration. But what a lot of us don’t know is that it could be damaging your health. Ibuprofen doesn’t cure the pain and in the long run it is toxic to the heart muscle. In fact, so much so that over an extended period of time it may even cause death. The thought is terrifying but the reality is that there is another option that is safeguarded from this scary possibility.

A safer and more natural way to relieve the pain is by using turmeric, which is a plant that is native to southern Asia and has the healing powers of both hidden and pronounced pain. The plant has been issued to patients for thousands of years in Asia and is a major part of Asian medicine.

Originally in plant form, the powder is loaded with powerful polyphenols and the spice form of turmeric is known to assist in over 600 advantages.

You can purchase the powerful ingredient in powder form at most grocery stores and natural food establishments. While the flavor of the brown powder is somewhat spicy and earthy tasting, it can be blended and mixed with a variety of different recipes.

A simple recipe that will do wonders to your body, and not break the bank is listed below:

Mix one tablespoon of turmeric powder, one cup of honey and the juice of one squeezed lemon in a glass
Stir the combination using a wooden spoon
Add a teaspoon of this mixture to a cup of warm water or tea
Enjoy the pain-relieving cocktail three times a day and you will see results in no time
Throw away your ibuprofen.

Will this work?

Published July 31, 2016 by pattinorthey

Eating a type of powdered food supplement, based on a molecule produced by bacteria in the gut, reduces cravings for high-calorie foods such as chocolate, cake and pizza, a new study suggests.

Scientists from Imperial College London and the University of Glasgow asked 20 volunteers to consume a milkshake that either contained an ingredient called inulin-propionate ester, or a type of fibre called inulin.

Previous studies have shown bacteria in the gut release a compound called propionate when they digest the fibre inulin, which can signal to the brain to reduce appetite. However the inulin-propionate ester supplement releases much more propionate in the intestines than inulin alone.

After drinking the milkshakes, the participants in the current study underwent an MRI scan, where they were shown pictures of various low or high calorie foods such as salad, fish and vegetables or chocolate, cake and pizza.

The team found that when volunteers drank the milkshake containing inulin-propionate ester, they had less activity in areas of their brain linked to reward — but only when looking at the high calorie foods. These areas, called the caudate and the nucleus accumbens, found in the centre of the brain, have previously been linked to food cravings and the motivation to want a food.

The volunteers also had to rate how appealing they found the foods. The results showed when they drank the milkshake with the inulin-propionate ester supplement they rated the high calorie foods as less appealing.

In a second part of the study, which is published in July edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the volunteers were given a bowl of pasta with tomato sauce, and asked to eat as much as they like. When participants drank the inulin-propionate ester, they ate 10 per cent less pasta than when they drank the milkshake that contained inulin alone.

In a previous research study by the same team, published in 2013, they found that overweight volunteers who added the inulin-propionate ester supplement to their food every day, gained less weight over six months compared to volunteers who added only inulin to their meals.

Professor Gary Frost, senior author of the study from the Department of Medicine at Imperial, said: “Our previous findings showed that people who ate this ingredient gained less weight — but we did not know why. This study is filling in a missing bit of the jigsaw — and shows that this supplement can decrease activity in brain areas associated with food reward at the same time as reducing the amount of food they eat.”

He added that eating enough fibre to naturally produce similar amounts of propionate would be difficult: “The amount of inulin-propionate ester used in this study was 10g — which previous studies show increases propionate production by 2.5 times. To get the same increase from fibre alone, we would need to eat around 60g a day. At the moment, the UK average is 15g.”

Claire Byrne, a PhD researcher also from the Department of Medicine explained that using inulin-propionate ester as a food ingredient may help prevent weight gain: “If we add this to foods it could reduce the urge to consume high calorie foods.” She added that some people’s gut bacteria may naturally produce more propionate than others, which may be why some people seem more naturally predisposed to gain weight.

Dr Tony Goldstone, co-senior author of the study from the Department of Medicine added: “This study adds to our previous brain imaging studies in people who have had gastric bypass surgery for obesity. These show that altering how the gut works can change not only appetite in general, but also change how the brain responds when they see high-calorie foods, and how appealing they find the foods to be.”

Dr Douglas Morrison, author of the paper from the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre at the University of Glasgow, commented: “We developed inulin-propionate ester to investigate the role of propionate produced by the gut microbiota in human health. This study illustrates very nicely that signals produced by the gut microbiota are important for appetite regulation and food choice. This study also sheds new light on how diet, the gut microbiome and health are inextricably linked adding to our understanding of how feeding our gut microbes with dietary fibre is important for healthy living.”

The research was funded by the National Institute for Health Research Imperial Biomedical Research Centre and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.

Iodine

Published July 22, 2016 by pattinorthey

Consider this:

  • Iodine is a an ESSENTIAL micronutrient, every single cell of our body needs it, especially the thyroid and breast tissue where it is stored in large quantities.
  • Iodine is also an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungaland antiparasitic.
  • It plays a very important role in breast cancer prevention, as it is fundamental for healthy breast tissue.
  • It is fundamental for brain development of the fetus.
  • It protects against carcinogenic radioactive iodine and radiation fallout (was used extensively in Chernobyl).
  • Support strong and healthy immune function.
  • Prevents oxidative damage to the DNA, resulting in a powerful anticarcinogenic effect.
  • Helps the body detoxify and excrete heavy metals.
  • Normalizes hormone receptors, making thyroid hormones more effective in their action.
  • Functioning hormone receptors also mean betterblood sugar / insulin regulation.
  • Helps normalize blood pressure.
  • Mobilizes the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue = helps you burn fat for energy.
  • Supports healthy brain function.

 

The world health organization considers iodine deficiency a worldwide epidemic, and the number one cause of preventable metal retardation.

72% of the world has iodine deficiency disorder.

Here are some of the conditions caused by iodine deficiency:

  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Breast cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Fibrocystic Breast Disease
  • Liver disease
  • Depression
  • Down’s syndrome
  • Fybromyalgia
  • Spontaneous abortion

 

And the list goes on…

Your body needs Iodine!

The thyroid alone needs 6mg of iodine per day to function.

Average sized breast tissue needs 5mg per day.

Other glands and tissues need 2mg per day.

Other tissues which require daily amounts of iodine are Ovaries, Salivary glands, Parotid glands, Pancreas, Cerebral spinal fluids, Brain, Stomach, Epithelial tissue, Lacrimal glands -Tear ducts!!!

Now you can start putting together the pieces of my patient’s puzzle….

 

Can you see how a deficiency in this essential nutrient would lead to serious disease in the body.

It is also important to note that a lack of selenium, magnesium, vitamin A, iron and zinc will exacerbate an iodine deficiency.

 

One last point I would like you to take home today is that a nation deficient in iodine as an average of 15% lower IQ level than a population who is iodine sufficient.

How to supplement

There are many different iodine supplements on the market, and they are not all created equal.

I would recommend avoiding Iodoral in favor of Lugol’s solution. What I use in my practice is the highest form of single atom pure iodine in the most bioavailable form.

As all the supplements I use it is not an over the counter product. I do recommend working with your nutritionist or functional medicine doctor to test your iodine deficiency levels and recommend the best product for you.
