Do you have Insulin Resistance?
If you don’t know, you’re not alone. This is perhaps the single most important question any of us can ask about our physical and mental health—yet most patients, and even many doctors, don’t know how to answer it.
Here in the U.S., insulin resistance has reached epidemic proportions: more than half of us are now insulin resistant. Insulin resistance is a hormonal condition that sets the stage throughout the body for inflammation and overgrowth, disrupts normal cholesterol and fat metabolism, and gradually destroys our ability to process carbohydrates.
Insulin resistance puts us at high risk for many undesirable diseases, including obesity, heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes.

Fitness is an interminable series of fads, some backed up by legitimate science, others quickly debunked. The evolution of running is a perfect example of this—a fascinating and completely cyclical evolution. Over the last decade it has become increasingly popular to “run like our ancestors” in very minimalist footwear or even totally barefoot. Like any other craze, there are benefits and disadvantages to so-called “minimalist running,” but science has recently uncovered a fascinating benefit that has nothing to do with your half-marathon time.
I want to dedicate my 1st post as a doTERRA Certified Site to this product because it was probably the most influential product for me choosing doTERRA as the Essential oil company of my choice.

Sandalwood is a name given to a class of fragrant woods that, unlike other aromatic woods, can retain their fragrance for decades. Both the wood and oil have been highly valued for centuries and Sandalwood has a documented history of many applications. It was traditionally used as an incense in religious ceremonies and for enhancing meditation, and the Egyptians used sandalwood for embalming. Sandalwood is very beneficial to the skin; it can help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and it promotes a healthy, smooth complexion. Sandalwood has a sweet, woody aroma that can enhance mood and is frequently used in meditation for its grounding effects.

With the rise in popularity of gluten-free baking in recent years, tapioca flour has become a staple for many people. Because cassava roots, from which tapioca is derived, are naturally very high in carbohydrates, tapioca starch is able to be extracted and made into gluten-free flour or “pearls.” These are used as a thickening agent in various kinds of foods or recipes — everything from pizza dough to pie filling.
Tapioca tastes mild and slightly sweet and is one of the purest forms of starch there is. Besides carbs/starch, it’s very low in other macronutrients or micronutrients (like protein, fats, and most vitamins and minerals). However, it’s totally gluten-free, low in calories and free from sugar — so it’s still overall useful in healthy, gluten-free cooking or baking, much like cassava flour.
This is a much-loved combo, and for good reason! It’s perfect to increase alertness, or when you need a quick pick-me-up:
2 drops wild orange essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil
Add a drop to your water for a burst of flavor and to promote overall health.* During colder temperatures, take one to two drops of Wild Orange in a capsule to support a healthy immune system.*
During clean up, use Wild Orange to cleanse and purify counter-tops, tables and other surfaces. To improve your home’s scent and to purify the air, place a few drops on your air filter
