Battling Digestive Issues

Alli’s Adventure Log. November 18, 2021.

All she’s talking about this week is essential oils, so that’s all I’ll have to report. You see, I’ve been having some digestive issues and she is determined to get to the bottom of it. We’ve been to Dr. Jensen twice. Done all the tests. Apparently, I’m normal. (Well, she says that’s debatable.)

So, in addition to new food (I rather like the new Lamb and Rice formula), she is giving me probiotics and has also started using essential oils…some of the same ones she uses herself, which is interesting. She’s followed an essential oil veterinarian for years, so it’s nothing new to her. Anyway, she is convinced I have stress colitis brought on by my prey drive and the overpopulation of deer we have around here. She’s calming me down. And, she’s also counseling him to ease up on the battle he (and therefore, I) have with the deer.

This week, she’s all hyper about something called a BOGO. I have no idea what that really is, but I guess it’s about buying one essential oil and getting another one free. She’s very much into that. So, I decided to tell you a bit about it so you could decide if I should be okay with what’s going down or if I should ask you to intervene.

So, she’s ordered the BOGO Box at a ridiculous price because it includes all the oils and supplements she is already using and intends to use on me. She’ll get 12 oils for the price of 5. Great.

Here’s the lowdown on what’s in the box and the 3 surprise oils/supplements I know about.Rose…the highest vibrational oil. It’s a powerful healer of the heart and opens your heart to heal and be compassionate (toward yourself and others). It’s good for stress, grief, digestion (gurgling stomach), and memory. ( I really don’t need her using it for that…she has a pretty good memory! Darn!) It’s also good for poison ivy/oak (which I’ve never gotten into, but you never know).

OnGuard…the oil of protection. OnGuard is a combination of oils used to shield individuals from harmful threats by strengthening the immune system on physical and emotional levels. She swears by it and uses it all the time. (Comes with the oil and OnGuard softgels.)

Copaiba…supports multiple body systems, including nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive (hello!!!), and lymphatic. It’s one of the best oils to calm a heightened nervous system (aka stress, anxiety, and overwhelm). She puts a drop in her water in the morning to help set a calm tone for the day; and also takes a Copaiba soft gel before bed for a more restful sleep.

Lavender…the oil of calm. Lavender calms the mind and brings feelings of peace. It’s also good for calming animals who are afraid of fireworks or thunderstorms. She said her first Bouvier, Zbeau, was terrified of thunderstorms. Had she known about Lavender then, it would have come in quite handy! I’m going to get some for my friend Brodie who has to be tranquilized during thunderstorms or when he hears gunshots or loud bangs. Poor fella.

Turmeric…the oil of restoration. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps individuals heal physically, mentally, and emotionally from the effects of inflammation in the body. She used to make a Turmeric paste for her other Bouviers, but now she’s going to start giving me the capsule because it’s a one-two punch in the fight against free radicals and providing a healthy inflammatory response. (I guess this stress colitis has something to do with inflammation.)

Adaptiv…the oil of adaptability was especially formulated to assist with anxious states. It’s her “go to” oil that she uses daily (more than once) to manage anxiety. She also puts it in her diffuser, so I get the benefits when I’m hanging out with her in her office. She was so excited when she found out that the Adaptiv roller was a BONUS (which means FREE) when she purchased the BOGO Box.

Arborvitae…a cleansing and purifying oil that is also a natural insect repellent! What? This is one of the free oils when you purchase the box.

Breathe…the respiratory blend that supports the respiratory system.

Well, there you have it. Oils she uses every day and a few she’s been using on moi. The word here is whatever she’s doing seems to be working. I’m not 100%, but I’m not as crazy and my…well you know…business seems more normal (she says that is a relief). I’ve even been able to waltz past a deer or two without lunging. I still look over my shoulder at them though.

If you want to know more about it, send her a message or email (or let her know here). I think the ridiculous prices are only good for this week and the box is only available until sold out. To your health! (And mine!)
