How to Treat an Earache Naturally

My daughter stayed at home a few weeks ago because she had an earache in both of her ears. I kept her at home so I could apply some essential oils to her every hour. I placed a cotton ball into each of her ears with a few drops of basil and tea tree oil. I made sure the balls were always moist by reapplying 1-3 drops of oils to each ball every hour. I also rubbed a drop or two to the bone behind the ears.

The pain didn't seem to go away and she even developed a bit of a fever by the evening. She went to sleep with those cotton balls in her ears.
The next morning, I thought I would bring her to the doctor if things got worse. To my amazement, yet again, none of her ears hurt in the morning and she felt great! In addition we escaped a doctor's visit ($40 copay plus precious time). We also escaped antibiotics that are ridiculously overused in our society. So off we went to school instead.

I continue to experiment with the essential oils at home and report to you remarkable results! Be careful when using over the counter oils as they might be synthetic (could be dangerous!). Buy the therapeutic grade oils from the well known and proven sources.

Please let me know if you have any more questions about this procedure.

The Story of Nutritious You™ Treats

Marina Sommers, holistic health and wellness coach hasn’t always been a healthy food junkie. It all started when she and her family moved to Siesta Key, Florida. The natural beauty of the island and the beach evoke her passion for nutrition and a healthier lifestyle.

At the same time her daughter developed an acute condition of Geographic Tongue. Certain foods made it very difficult for her to eat. Several months of trying to find a cure proved to be futile. Marina realized there had to be a drastic change for the better. She finally decided to move the whole family to a strict organic whole food based diet, without gluten, white sugar, white flour, preservatives, dyes, artificial flavors or any other laboratory made food-like products.

To Marina’s amazement, her daughter’s tongue was healed in two weeks! All the spots were gone. This is where the new journey began.

Marina started creating her own treats in alignment with her family’s new diet, at the same time still wanting her daughter to have the tasty treats that kids enjoy. This is how Nutritious You™ Treats came to life.

Marina’s ultimate goal is to bring her healthy treats to as many families as possible. Forget sacrificing taste for health. She is committed to providing natural, healthy and nutrient filled foods so there is NO GUILT, while indulging on favorite flavors or textures. Marina is dedicated to creating foods that are not just better for you, but good for you.

All our treats never go to high temperatures to preserve what’s nature has created.

Health & Wellness in One Story Book

This is the book for your little ones if you'd like to encourage healthier lifestyle and nutrition in the family.

I've been waiting for this book to come out for a long time and finally I got a hold of it. It is one of those rear books that doesn't have direct or indirect advertisement of cookies, ice cream, pizza, etc. Why are these items in almost every book anyways?!

Instead Yummy Tummy Rainbow Garden encourages outside play, love for veggies/fruits, gives kid-friendly explanation of why this or that food is good for you. Why you should eat celery? - Because it looks like your bones and it has all of the needed nutrition/food for your bones to grow strong and fast! Doesn't your kid want to be the strongest quickest runner?

Karen Leonetti, the author of the book, used to be my child's teacher at the Earth Angels Preschool (the names of the two main characters in the book) and I know she walks the talk. Her morning routine with the kids used to be making a "monster green" smoothie with the kids. They all loved the activity, it came just natural to them b/c of the daily encouragement and modeling from adults to the kids at home and at the school.  So needless to say, my daughter, when reading the book, was so excited to see a picture of the blender and of her familiar "green monster" smoothie!

As a bonus, there are a few easy recipes included in the book. You can make those with your little ones, they are simple and nutritious!

Follow Karen Leonetti and her nutritious book on her FB page and click the link above to buy the book.

Essential Oils for UTI Symptoms for a Child

This is just a quick post to help out other mommies, those who prefer essential oils to over-the counter-medications. It's my personal story that happened to me yesterday.

My daughter woke up with the symptoms of Urinary Track Infection. It hurt her a lot and she was crying from the pain. (She is almost 6 years old and is not used to any kind of pain in her small age.)   I sent her to school anyway hoping it will go away. However, the school nurse called me and told me that my daughter is in pain and I have to pick her up and probably go to a doctor. I really dislike medications at this point in life and try to avoid them unless I must. So this is what have helped us, I am so happy she is pain free in less then 24 hours!

Every time she went to the bathroom during the day, we washed her and applied 
2-3 drops of lavender essential oil and 
2-3 drops of tea tree oil directly on her private area. I did it every one or two hours during the day and every three hours during the night. Also, I added 
2 drops of frankincense oil for the night. Additionally, I put about 
15 drops of sandalwood oil and 
15 drops of eucalyptus oil on a warm wet wash cloth and applied to her lower part of belly when she slept so it stayed in place for at least an hour.

I was stressed out when she woke up b/c she refused to go to the bathroom before because of her pain. To my great surprise, she went and sqeezed a big smile. She said: "mommie it doesn't hurt me anymore!" And that's when she was completely symptom free!

If you try this recipe please share with us readers if it helped you too. Also please share any other natural remedies you know for UTI that are easy and quick.

If you would like to order these specific oils quickly you can go here.
If you would like to order the oils mentioned above at 25% discount, please contact me here.

Whenever purchasing essential oils, make sure they are pure (not diluted, no synthetic ingredients), therapeutic grade.  Make sure you know how to use them. If you need help figuring out which oils to use and when, contact me to schedule a free 30 min. consult where you can ask me any questions about applying aromatherapy in your home. Here is just an example of over-the-counter medications and what you can use in place of them.

P.S. I am not a doctor; any home remedy or advice you find on this blog are not meant to replace a consultation with your physician.  

Neuromuscular Massage in Sarasota

When was the last time you treated yourself to a good massage?  I think the best scenario should be at least one massage per month. So when was the last one for you?

Recently I received a neuromuscular massage from a very special person in my life - Joseph Greeley. Long time ago, Joe was the guy who introduced me to the concept of food as a medicine. He used to be my neighbor. He was the guy growing bookshelves full of sprouts every day and eating them. Ever since then, I was hooked on nutrition. This is when sunflower, the first sprout I tried, became my favorite and later has become the image of my health coaching practice.  Joe completed his education in neuromuscular massage therapy and currently taking clients.  He is also studying craniosacral therapy at the moment.

This is my personal testimonial about Joseph Greeley's neuromuscular massage:
As always, it was a very thoughtful, highly customized session with Joe. I felt like a special client and learned about existence of new muscles in my body and how they work.  Even though it was relaxing and didn't hurt at all at the moment of massage, next day I felt like I had a good long exercise a day before. This is what I call an excellent service!

If you have some pain in any part of your body, need to loosen up your muscles, or if you are looking for a lot more then just a Swedish massage, I highly recommend Joe. He is offering the best deal on the market for a limited time at your location!  Please contact him at 941-223-4560.

Feel free to contact me with any questions!
