When static magnets are placed over an area of inflammation, the magnetic field penetrates through the skin and deep into the tissues and blood stream. Damaged cells will react to the presence of a magnetic field by realigning their ions into the correct position and start the process of removing the excess fluid from within the cell.
Magnetic fields also affect the white blood cells that surround an injury. White blood cells attack the infection and disease by producing antibodies or by eating the bacteria. During this process the white blood cells release toxins into the blood stream, the body cannot detoxify and excrete the toxins safely so they are stored in tissue as small pockets of fluid. When a magnetic field is present in the blood, toxins in the tissues are drawn out as the magnetised blood travels around the body. The toxins are then carried to the liver for detoxification and to the kidneys for excretion.
When inflammation in the body is reduced, the damage caused by the inflammatory process begins to be repaired by a fresh and rich supply of oxygen and nutrients. Cells start to heal, and tissue regeneration begins. The circulatory system returns to normal and the heart does not have to work so hard to pump extra fluid around the body.
Magnetic fields can affect the heartbeat, therefore it is strongly recommended that anyone wearing a Pacemaker should not use magnets.
People who use defibrillators (ICD’s) should not use magnetic therapy
Magnetic products should not be used if pregnant – although there is no study showing adverse effects, potential users should contact their midwife or obstetrician.
Wearing magnetic jewellery and drinking magnetised water on a daily basis can help encourage good health and general wellbeing.
Magnetic therapy is a natural way to treat a wide variety of ailments in both humans and animals. It is 100% safe, drug free, non invasive and has no side effects. It works well as a therapy alone or in conjunction with natural and conventional therapies. Small high strength magnets are placed near your main arteries, or on the body as close to the point of pain as possible (eg a magnetic headband or a magnetic powerheart worn close to the base of the neck). Wearing the magnets for a minimum 8 hours per day and drinking magnetised water on a daily basis can help prevent the onset of a migraine / headache and relieve symptoms.
Menopause magnets use magnetic therapy to bring the autonomic nervous system into balance, which alleviates symptoms of menopause. The autonomic nervous system is the part of the nervous system that controls bodily functions that are not consciously operated, such as breathing and sweating. It also regulates two sets of nerves: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetic nervous system prepares the body for stressful or emergency situations and can trigger a person’s fight or flight response. When the sympathetic nervous system is overloaded, a person experiences greater anxiety, which can amplify pain perception and mood.
The parasympathetic nervous system, on the other hand, does the opposite. The parasympathetic nervous system regulates and repairs the body. When the sympathetic nervous system and parasympathetic nervous system are balanced, the systems work together to regulate all of the body’s organ functions.
Menopause creates an imbalance between the two systems, leading to excessive sympathetic nervous system activity, which can cause body temperatures to rise and hearts to beat faster. Magnetic therapy aims to bring the systems back in balance by increasing parasympathetic nervous system activity and reducing sympathetic nervous system activity, and, therefore, help to reduce the most common symptoms of menopause.
No, always talk to your doctor about changing any medication – even if you are feeling better. Magnetic therapy is not an alternative to medicine although some of our customers have managed to come off there prescribed medication, but only under strict supervision from medical professionals.
Young Living’s Seed to Seal promise guarantees that you are provided with a chemical free, pure, therapeutic grade 100% essential oil. In January 2019, Young Living’s Vitality range of Essential Oils became verified by SCS Global Services under the Non-GMO Project Verified standard. SCS has been providing global leadership in third‐party quality, environmental and sustainability verification, certification, auditing, testing, and standards development for three decades. Young Living are the only Essential Oil company in the world to provide both the Seed to Seal and the Non GMO certification.
Essential oils can have a shelf life of anywhere between 2-15 years. The oils themselves don’t deteriorate. However, once you start using them and exposing them to sunlight, oxygen and temperature changes, their chemistry will start to react to these elements and start becoming a “different oil” than when you first started using it. Being aware of this and cautious not to over-expose your essential oils to these factors, you can guarantee the most longevity of your precious essential oils. Essential oils were found in Tutankhamun’s tomb, still radiantly fragrant after some many centuries.
Young Living’s Seed to Seal promise guarantees that you are provided with a chemical free, pure, therapeutic grade 100% essential oil.
Each bottle of Young Living essential oil is labelled with directions for how that oil can be used, and these directions vary based on location, due to different regional and country specific regulations. Please consult with the product label for appropriate use directions.
A carrier oil is a vegetable oil such as coconut oil or grapeseed oil that can be used to dilute EO. YL V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex is an excellent carrier oil for all applications. Carrier oils ensure that EOs applied topically are comfortable. Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the effect of the EO, and prevents waste due to excessive application. Vegetable shortening, butter, margarine or petroleum derivatives (petrolatum jelly) should never be used as carrier oils. Some consumers choose to avoid olive oil as a carrier oil because of its strong aroma and thick viscosity.
“Hot oils” are oils that, when applied to the skin, can cause a hot or burning sensation. YL recommends using a patch test procedure prior to first use. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of EO to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Observe that area of skin over the course of 1-2 hours for any noticeable reaction; usually reactions occur within 5-10 minutes. If you experience a hot or burning sensation or if you develop a rash, add V-6 carrier oil to the affected area as often as needed. Examples of “hot” oils include cinnamon, clove, lemongrass, peppermint, oregano, thyme, Exodus II, and Thieves.
If discomfort or irritation occurs, stop using the EO, and apply V-6 or other carrier oil to the affected area. Never use water in an attempt to flush the oil off the skin, as this may increase discomfort. If a rash occurs this may be a sign of detoxification; drink adequate water to encourage the release and removal of body toxins. Toxins present in petrochemical based soaps and skin care products, detergents and perfumes may trigger some of the detoxification reactions. Consider discontinuation of these agents if a reaction occurs. Before using the EO again, perform a patch test (see above) and dilute with carrier oil as needed. Water drives oil into the skin and the eyes. If EO gets in your eye, flush with V-6 carrier oil to alleviate any discomfort. Discomfort should be alleviated within minutes. If eye discomfort does not subside within 5 minutes, please seek medical attention. Be aware that some documents suggest diluting the oil with water. YL suggests that you dilute with carrier oil to ensure that discomfort is alleviated as quickly as possible.
YL recommends that you avoid contact with EOs and sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, genitals and mucous membranes. If you choose to use the oil in any sensitive area, dilute 1 drop of the essential oil to 5-10 drops of V-6 carrier oil.
Proper usage is indicated on each EO label. Please follow label instructions. The idea of “if a little is good, a lot is better” is not always correct. Essential oils are very potent and powerful– start low and go slow. In most cases 1-2 drops are adequate and using more may waste product. Depending on the EO you can gradually build up to 3-4 uses per day if desired. Excessive use of essential oils may increase the risk for adverse reactions.
As with any medical condition it is strongly recommended that, prior to use of essential oils, you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained health care advisor who is experienced in EO usage. It is generally recommended to avoid overuse and excessive use of Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Sage (Salvia officinalis), Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare), Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis), Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), and Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens) as well as the blends and supplements that contain these oils.
Many EOs are appropriate for use with children, and they should be diluted prior to use. Some YL products are pre-diluted with carrier oil as indicated on product label and are intended for direct application on children. Children generally respond well to EO, and use of a carrier oil is recommended. One-2 drops of EO such as RutaVala, Gentle Baby and Peace & Calming may be diluted in carrier oil and applied to the bottom of the feet.
Some EOs, especially citrus oils, contain natural molecules that react with sunlight (UV light) and cause a sensitivity reaction. All YL EOs and oil blends that contain these compounds are labelled with a warning to avoid sun/UV light for 12 to 48 hours after applying. Caution should always be used when starting to use a new oil: use patch testing (see above), dilute and apply the oil to skin that is protected from sun/UV exposure to reduce the risk of sensitivity. YL beauty and cosmetic products are formulated to remove sun-sensitizing agents to reduce the risk of sun sensitivity.
Can essential oils interact with prescription medications? If you have a disease or medical condition, or if you are using a prescription medication, it is recommended that you consult with a health advisor who has experience with EOs prior to using an EO. Seek the advice of a doctor or pharmacist about potential interactions between the medication(s) and the essential oil(s).
