Skin cancer is the most popular type of cancer with 5.4 billion basal and squamous cell skin cancers diagnosed yearly in the United States. With summer upon us, many people seek to utilize sun screens to protect their skin, but do they really work? Several studies report that those who spend the greatest amount of time outdoors have the lowest risk of melanoma.
Skin cancer is the most frequent type of cancer in the United States!
Melanoma is found on places on the body that receive minimal sun exposure such as the soles of the feet, genitals, inside the nose and mouth and under fingernails. In 2007, the FDA concluded that “available evidence fails to show that sunscreen use alone prevents skin cancer.” In fact, the Environmental Working Group reported that nearly half of the most popular brand sunscreens actually accelerate the development of malignant skin cancer cells.Read More…

In this article, you’ll learn all about:
When reading about essential oils – whether you are brand new to essential oils or digging for new recipe blends – you’ll often see a carrier or base oil included in the discussion, or see mention of dilution. So what is a carrier oil, and how do you know which one to get?
The carrier oil is a fatty extract, usually cold pressed from its source. Individual allergies aside, a carrier oil is not likely to cause sensitization and therefore makes an excellent medium to disperse the more concentrated essential oil across your skin.
Carrier oils are nutritive and have healing properties of their own, so in your discovery of essential oils, don’t forget to take some time to learn about your options for carrier oils, as well.
When to Use Carrier Oils
Before you ask – yes, carrier oils are necessary! Once you get the hang of it, adding your essential oils to a carrier first is hardly any extra work, and in return you are actually amplifying the efficacy of your healing application.Read More…

Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease Is Easier Than You Think
Science shines new light on root cause of memory problems.
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.
Scarier still, researchers now understand that insulin resistance is a powerful force in the development of Alzheimer’s Disease.Read More…

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.

The sweet, woody aroma of Indian Sandalwood is a reflection of the soothing benefits of the essential oil—which can be used for skin imperfections or to enhance mood during meditation.
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.
