7 Ways to Reduce Inflammation and Restore Optimal Health — Without a Statin Drug
Experts predict that as a result of the so-called JUPITER study, which seemed to show that the statin drug Crestor lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes in those with high levels of inflammation, will lead to millions of people being put on statin drugs.
But the benefits were actually tiny — about 0.72 percent of the statin takers in the trial had a heart attack or stroke, compared with 1.5 percent of those taking placebos. U.S. News & World Report November 11, 2008

Do you want to feel energy and vitality? Do you realize how many people are AVOIDING long term drug use by choosing nutrition and essential oils FIRST before statin drugs? Young Living is helping people get amazing results….see below. Order today…you can get results too!
Try these seven measures instead of a statin drug that comes with dangerous side effects. LIFESTYLE choices DO CHANGE LIVES.
1. Think nutrition. Nutrition can take care of many health issues…but commitment is key. Natural things take 8-12 weeks, so you have to be consistent and patient.
“I have had high blood pressure (134/95) for as long as I can remember. The first time they ever checked it was when I was playing semi-pro football and they were shocked that an athlete in great physical condition would have such high BP at only 24 years old. I kept it manageable all these years (I’ll be 60 next month) with lots of exercise and occasionally I had to take BP meds when under a lot of stress. I started drinking the NingXia Red, and two or three months later when I decided to check my blood pressure it was 120/73! I was so shocked, I rechecked it four times because I couldn’t believe it – it had NEVER been that good. Then about a month later, I was at the doctor’s office for a leg injury and the doctor checked my blood pressure while I was there and he said it was perfect! I’ll never be without my NingXia Red.” ~Doug McLaughlin
I am not sure that I have thanked you for encouraging me to begin the Balance Complete and Ningxia. I believe you quietly and in a nonpressure kind of way “bugged” me for YEARS. So a sincere and great thank you is sent your way. I feel better, stronger, more energized for multiple reasons. I have lost 50lbs and feel young again. I do believe in this product. ~ Kathie
2. THINK OMEGAS. People who stick with a Mediterranean-style diet based on fruits, vegetables, nuts, and olive oil can lower their levels of inflammation. It works by increasing the amount of foods you eat that are rich in omega-3 fats, which fight inflammation. It is a good idea to supplement in this area because Americans tend to not get enough of the foods rich in omega 3. In Young Living’s Omega Blues, clove, German chamomile, myrrh are added to the fish oil. Clove When Combined With Fish Oil Reduces Inflammation an Additional 30%!!!! Clove oil and myrrh are one of nature’s strongest antioxidants which insures freshness during preparation and metabolism. Clove, German Chamomile and Myrrh contribute to a reduction of inflammation and lemongrass has been shown to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. According to Tom Reed, M.D., clove essential oil also reduces liver enzymes, the markers for liver damage, by as much as 40%.
Michael served 20 years as an officer in the U.S. Air Force. Military are subject to LOTS of vaccinations, petrochemicals, etc. and many struggle with long term health effects from the cumulative combination. Well, not this officer. It took a disciplined year of cleansing and rebuilding processes, but risk factors are gone. During Michael’s detox process nine years ago, the toxins released out of the skin (skin rashes, intense itching, etc). We are grateful how effective the YL products are for cleansing and supporting the rebuilding of health, but Michael has been most impressed by the Omega Blue which was introduced a couple years ago. He feels this was the last missing piece of his journey to restore his body and continue to maintain optimal health. And after hearing the remark byTom Reed, M.D. it makes sense that the liver would respond. ~Connie
3. GET MOVIN’. Exercise a great way to lower inflammation without any of the side effects associated with medications. Our bodies function better with active lifestyles. It is important to sweat. It is important to “up the target heart rate” for at least 20 minutes a day. It is important to build strength.
4. SHRINK YOUR WAIST. If you’re a woman with a waist measurement of over 35 inches or a man with a waist of over 40 inches, you probably have high inflammation. Taking a few inches off the waist by reducing your portions and increasing activity can go a long way toward solving that problem.
I have been doing the 5 day cleanse… I sure feel good…my head is so clear…I have so much energy… no sweats at night… my knee pain has almost completely subsided …I lost 10 pounds. ~Marian
A couple months ago we started our annual wellness program at work. I read in the Essential Oil Desk Reference about grapefruit oil helping with depression, and being a fat dissolving oil. I try to have a few bottles of water each day, one having 4 – 6 drops of grapefruit oil in it. I have been in a much better mood and with some quality time spent on the treadmill, I have had some weight loss as well. (Almost twenty pounds now) I really think the grapefruit oil has helped with keeping my ‘down days’ in check. Just remember to shake the bottle to keep it mixed. It tastes great! ~Brent G
The “Restore Your Core” product combination has done wonders for me. In just four weeks I trimmed three inches off my bust, waist and hips and lost ten pounds! More importantly my blood pressure dropped 30 points. ~Bonnie Stewart
5. SLEEP. A new study shows that elderly people with high blood pressure who sleep less than 7.5 hours a night have dramatically elevated chances of having a stroke or heart attack. Other research has shown that both too little and too much sleep increases inflammation. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine says most adults need between seven and eight hours of sleep each night.
I have always had a hard time falling and staying asleep so when I was given a few drops of Rutavala to try, I had been using Unisom for years and before that I had self medicated with drugs and liquor, so this was going to be a big deal if it worked. From the first night I used it I have slept better than I had my whole life. I won’t go without it now!! ~Heather P.
I just wanted to tell you how great the valor is working with Ronnie’s sleep apnea. He has not worn his mask for about 6 weeks he wakes up so refreshed and does not stop breathing like he has for many many years I infuse the bedroom every night all night. I put about ten drops in the water and turn it to 45%. ~Marian
6. REDUCE STRESS: High levels of stress hormones can lead to the release of excess inflammatory chemicals.
I graduated with a BS in Medical Technology in 1990. I love biology, chemistry and physiology; and have a passion for learning “how” things work in our bodies.
In 2008, I was overweight, tired, stress out. I wound up in the hospital emergency room twice for what was diagnosed as possible gout and chest pain. That was a wake up call!
I changed my diet. I began to add NingXia Red, Omega Blues, Multi Vitamins, Extra Vitamin C. Other changes I added along the way are greening up my home using the Thieves cleaner. I have also done a Colon Cleanse. My energy zoomed upwards and I have lost 13 pounds to date. Oh, and the inflammatory reaction due to the possible gout…..GONE. The Chest Pain… to date undiagnosed and not reoccurred. My favorite remedy for stress is a hot bath with 10 drops of Sacred Mountain essential oil.Connie
I love Lavender or Peace and Calming for tension. ~Heather
Stress–Shingles: It is just a little over a week since I was diagnosed with Shingles. Many testimonials of how much an ordeal this affliction can be have come my way when friends and acquaintances hear of my illness. Now I need to share my own story of how I received such a quick relief and feel like I am nearly completely over the ordeal. I had just broken out on Friday with the rash in my left ear and down the back of my neck. The most uncomfortable part of the situation was the severe pain that would shoot over my head staring inside my ear. It was quite disabling because it was so frequent. Sunday evening I received the Raindrop Technique and knew instantly I was going to be helped by the oil therapy. I had no Idea how much it would benefit me. Along with the NingXia Red and Inner Defense I turned the corner to recovery from the pain by Monday. I was tired, but not suffering. On Wednesday I received another Raindrop Technique from Connie. Thanksgiving Day I was able to prepare the turkey and enjoy the meal with my family. Thank you, Connie, for rescuing a friend in need. ~Char
7. Reduce toxic chemicals such as cleaning products in your homes. The EPA states that 50% of all illnesses are caused by indoor pollution. Cleaning products are the most insidious.
Hi. I own a cleaning business and use the Thieves cleaner in the homes. ~Paula
I was told 13 years ago I would never get pregnant. I had Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS) and should consider adoption for my kid fix.
I met Ann Maxted at a health expo. I tried the Dragon Time and loved how it took my cramps away. By the third month I was using it everyday. I was “bathing” in the Thieves cleaner. I did Harmony with Dragon Time. And well, I got pregnant. Hee Hee After 13 years of trying, my angel arrived.
Through the whole pregnancy I used Ninxgia Red.
And I just found out on July 11, 2009….I am pregnant again! lol ~Kerry
