Ancient spiritual and physical practices use breathing exercises. Yoga combines prana or pranayama (life force or breath) with asanas or postures. Qigong from China uses breath to move qi or life force, energy throughout the body. Psychotherapists heal emotional trauma by using breathing techniques (Ley 1999). Breathe enhances healing from cancer and chronic diseases (Manon et al.2003). From the beginning of time breathing has been part of the birthing process. In the 1970s women started using Lamaze breath techniques to focus and breathe for each stage of labor Concentrated breathing cycles in meditation brings the life force into your cells Breath with movement stimulates your muscles, organs, cells, and neurotransmitters. It balances hormones and keeps you youthful. Increased brainpower, elevated moods are benefits of movement with breath. It also can help you to stay calm and relax when feeling stressed, tense, or pressured. Breathing is a way to nurture yourself. The military teaches a breathing technique when they get into a critical situation. This technique is belly breathing which is one of the breaths I use daily. Inhale life and exhale to let go is a great way for you to start using breathing techniques. I would like to share one of the many ways to use your breath to stop stress, tension, pressure, and pain. As soon as you feel any of these things coming on use this breath. You also can use it to help you focus and stay in the present thus making you more productive in your daily life. One Minute Mindful Breathing Daily Practice 1. Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight 2. Feet flat on the floor 3. Close your eyes 4. Breath in through the nose like you are sniffing a rose 5. Breath out through the mouth like you are blowing out a dandelion 6. Continue this breathing for at least 1 minute building up to 3 minutes 7. If any thoughts come in let them go with the breath
Give this a try and let me know how you do with it. Please share with me what kind of breathing techniques you use. I love to learn.

Hello, I am 61 years and have been in natural health since I was 28 years old. I haven’t used any medication ever since. So here goes my COVID- 19 story with Herbs, Vitamins, Essential Oils and Flower Essences.
My youngest daughter, Zoe came home with fever, headache and body aches. 2 days later she tested positive for COVID-19.
For her fever- I started placing apple cider vinegar in compresses all over her body to hydrate her; Then I layered 5 drops of Niaouli in 1oz. Arnica macerated oil on top of that for her body aches. I continued to do this as the compresses became warm and added more vinegar to them to cool her down. She also was taking cool baths with 5 drops Ravintsara and 5 drops Lemon.
I also gave her 1000mg of Vitamin C every hour while she had the fever.
To keep her bowels open and help her liver eliminate the toxins coming from the virus I had her take 2 coffee enemas per day which means she had to drink (6) fresh juices per day to keep up her electrolytes. You can learn more about this tomorrow when you receive my video on my Dynamic Detox program that begins on Sept 4th, 2021. CLICK HERE
Well after 2 days I came down with it and I started on the same program as I began Zoe on. My shins began to hurt so badly that I had Zoe rub them with the Niaouli and Arnica blend. My head hurt so bad that I had nausea and wanted to throw up but nothing would come out. Peppermint and Ginger Tea were made and taken every time we needed to drink to help with the inflammation for the whole digestive tract and the nausea. You can use 3 tea bags of each herb to1 liter of boiling water. Let steep for 8 to 10 minutes and drink continuously. To further reduce the inflammation of the digestive tract each morning we drank 1 tbsp of Aloe Vera Juice in our Granny Green apple juice with 1 tbsp liquid chlorophyll and 1 tbsp Psyllium hulls.
The tea and coffee enemas also really helped with a burning sensation that comes from the liver sending too much bile back into the stomach which is an acid organ and as we know bile and acid don’t mix. The liver is trying to get the toxins out of the body as it gets rid of the virus.
I also started sniffingRosemary 1.8 cineole from the bottle because I noticed my sense of taste and smell had left me. Zoe’s had too. Ravintsara and Lemon essential oils were put on a Q tip directly into put into my nostrils twice daily to keep the sinuses, bronchioles and lungs open and keep the mucous from becoming too sticky. Please be careful using them this way and check to make sure your nose can handle this. If not, dilute 12 drops of Ravintsara and Lemon in 1oz. Apricot oil. We also took 2 capsules 3 times daily of an herbal formulation which contains – Fennel seed, fenugreek seed, boneset aerial parts, horseradish root extract and mullein leaf extract that soothes the respiratory tract along with 1 tsp twice daily of Black Walnut extract to oxygenate the blood and burn up excessive toxins and help to balance the blood sugar. 1 tsp three times daily of Pau d’ Arco ( Taheebo) liquid extract contains high amounts of iron, which aids the body in simulating nutrients, and the elimination of wastes. It is a powerful natural antibiotic with virus killing properties (Tenney,1983). In the bath twice daily I placed a warm compress of 1 drop Ravintsara and 1 drop Lemon essential oils with warm water on my chest to break up anything that might try to come into my chest.
As for Vitamins, Enzymes and Foods – we took (3) Zinc per day for its beneficial effects it has on the immune system which includes decreased susceptibility to and improved clinical outcomes for infectious pathogens including multiple viruses (Joachimiak, 2021) It also helps with the loss of smell and taste (Joachimiak, 2021, Ritchason,1986,). I took enzymes to help me break down my foods because my body couldn’t take in any heavy foods. We only took in juices, teas, fresh fruit each morning such as peaches, nectarines, plums, and apples along with potassium broth the first 4 days. Then my husband made my daughter and I some beef broth that we ate on the 5th day and then I asked him to make me a chicken soup with onions, celery, potatoes and garlic. I ate that for 2 more days. After two weeks, I am continuing the juices, teas, fresh fruit, salads, soups, and steamed veggies. In my opinion let your body fight the virus don’t overload it with food give it enough of the right things – Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and B Vitamins such as (Niacin B3 for the lungs 25 mg with each juice) and Liquid B12 keep your energy up and recover – 1 tsp mid morning. We also took (2) CoQ- 10 which as an antioxidant has proved to be of potential use as a treatment in diseases which are caused by oxidative stress such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and neurodegenerative diseases (Gutierrez-Mariscal FM et al. 2020)
I also reached out to my herbalist and aromatherapist friend, Diane Maiorisi, who has a machine that sends out good vibes (radio frequencies). I had her send me Stomach Disorders and Liver Cleanse. It really helped the heaviness that my body was feeling. Here is the link to the site where you can get a machine and tell them Diane sent you. Click here
Last but not least steam inhalation twice daily of 5 drops Rosemary 1.8 cineole, 3 drops Ravintsara and 2 drops lemon in a pan of hot water. Turned boiling water off and put the essential oils in it then I put a towel over my head and breathed the vapors for 3 minutes. This really helped with my sense of my smell and taste. It is slowly coming back – I now can smell menthol from peppermint, 1.8 cineole that is in the Rosemary 1.8 cineole and Ravintsara essential oils. I can taste bitter and sweet. It sounds like a song bitter sweet. Well it has been challenging emotionally too. First of all I was angry with the Virus/ Pandemic whole deal and I became very apathetic which isn’t very much like me. I started using these flower essences- Wild Rose for apathy, Willow for resentment and boy did I have resentment; Scleranthus to keep clear me on my decisions that I was looking at making and Olive for physical fatigue. I took 4 drops under my tongue as often as needed for the first 9 days. On the 10th day I started using 4 drops Gorse for my depressive mood along with 4 drops of Self heal to take full responsibility for my health and wellbeing.

After the third day of having COVID – 19 I started to walk up to the top of the hill in Domaine de Castillou to keep my body moving and it really restored my strength.
Zoe and I have completely recovered and you can too.
Remember to stay hydrated, rest and take good care of yourself.

So many of us today experience emotional responses through the people who surround us, both physically and virtually. We can take on the negative emotions that are “given” to us simply by being empathetic and understanding with a friend or colleague, or even while we are scrolling through our Social Media accounts.
At times we can feel that we are overwhelmed with the overload of negative energy and messages that our bodies are receiving.
According to Flora Carlin in Psychology Today, “We live in an age where negative emotions can spread to hundreds online in the time that one unhappy family member dampens the spirits of a household.”
Learn how to re-balance your emotional scales through the wonderful healing properties of Essential Oils and Flower Essences combined, in this 1 day Introduction to Emotional Healing.

I attended in April. I helped my 70 y.o. recently widowed neighbor who suffers with anxiety attacks by giving her a roll on blend from Lorries recipes. She just called me and asked for more! I must find my notes as soon as this session is over!
I really recommend the class. Life changer!!!
Your class has given me the tools to use more essential oils. I am teaching two oil classes at a local hospital. I am studying your materials and you really set the stage for that. I am so glad I took your class. It was so great.
Your books are so good and usable. I was so impressed with your class. I certainly came home with so much more than the cost.
You are amazing. I am so glad I got to meet you and consider you one of the most gifted and loving souls in this business and I really mean that. Have a great day.
