Do I have Thyroid Disease

200 million people worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder.

Of the 30 million people above about half are undiagnosed.


Every cell in the body has receptors for thyroid hormone. These hormones are responsible for the most basic aspects of body function, impacting all major systems of the body.

Thyroid imbalance could be the source of your biggest health problems. But many people don’t realize that their symptoms are frequently caused by a thyroid disorder or imbalance.

Thyroid hormone directly acts on the brain, the G.I. tract, the cardiovascular system, bone metabolism, red blood cell metabolism, gall bladder and liver function, steroid hormone production, glucose metabolism, lipid and cholesterol metabolism, protein metabolism and body temperature regulation. You can think of the thyroid as the central gear in a sophisticated engine. If that gear breaks, the entire engine goes down with it.

Some Key Facts [1]
• Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is the most common cause of an underachieve thyroid (hypothyroidism). In Europe and the United States it variably affects 2-4 percent of the population, while it occurs more often in women than in men.
• Congenital hypothyroidism: 1 per 3,000 – 4,000 newborns are affected by congenital hypothyroidism in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, (Genetics Home Reference website).
• Thyroid cancer is the 16th most common cancer worldwide (the 8th among women): for example, in 2013, there were an estimated 637,115 people living with thyroid cancer in the US.
• The incidence rate of thyroid cancer has increased by at least 150% since 1970.
– Without realising, symptoms you are experiencing, could be a result of an underlying thyroid disorder.
– 1 in 10 people worldwide will suffer with some form of thyroid disorder. Thyroid Disorders affect more Women than Men!
– If you are unsure, speak to your doctor and request thyroid pathology and a thyroid ultrasound to be sure.

This is a Day that essentially belongs to the people—to thyroid patients, pregnant women, those children exposed to inadequate iodine intake, in a word, to all who suffer from thyroid ailments and deserve a better standard of care.

Frankincense – the Liquid Gold

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their therapeutic and healing properties as part of the practice of aromatherapy.

Frankincense-treeFrankincense oil is sourced from the resin of the Boswellia carterii or Boswellia sacara small, shrubby tree with white flowers that’s commonly grown in Somalia. This tree is different from many others in that it can grow with very little soil in dry and desolate conditions.

The word frankincense comes from the term “franc encens,” which means quality incense in old French.

 When in doubt start with Frankincense

Research shows traditional use of Frankincense in driving away evil spirits (Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, French, Asian folklore and rituals), and if we think of these spirits as obsessions, fears and anxieties which may have become manifest as physical illness, we understand the benefits of applying Frankincense for all occasions. In Somali, Ethiopian, Arabian, and Indian cultures, it is suggested that burning frankincense daily in the house brings good health.


A little bit of oil goes a long way; it should not be ingested in large quantities as it can be toxic.

If you’re purchasing essential oils, avoid oils that say “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil” as these can be synthetic and don’t provide the desired health benefits. Instead, look for oils that say “pure therapeutic grade essential oil”  for the highest quality essential oils.

Frankincense Essential Oil Benefits

FRANKINCENSE: analgesic, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-depressant, astringent, carminative (relieves gas), cicatrizant, cytophylatic (stimulating regeneration of cells), digestive, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, immune boosting tonic, anti-carcinogistic.  In Ayurvedic medicine frankincense (Boswellia serrata), commonly referred to in India as “dhoop,” has been used for hundreds of years for treating arthritis, healing wounds, strengthening the female hormone system and purifying the air. The use of frankincense in Ayurveda is called “dhoopan“.

  1. Balances Hormone Levels

Frankincense oil reduces symptoms associated with menstruation and menopause by balancing hormone levels. It can help relieve pain, cramps, constipation, headaches, anxiety, nausea, fatigue, and mood swings. Frankincense oil also helps with regulating estrogen production and reduces the risk of tumor or cyst development in pre-menopausal women.

2. May Help Fight Cancer, or Deal with Chemotherapy Side Effects

Frankincense has been documented all over the world to have a very strong Cancer deterrent factor –Nicole Stevens has produced current research on effectiveness of essential oils with eliminating cancer. Dr. Hsueh-Kung Lin, published his research on doTERRA’s Frankincense clearly stating that in eliminating many forms of cancerous cells this is the most potent and effective oil he has had the privilege of working with – the fragrance made him more energetic too. Frankincense oil has been shown to help fight cells of specific types of cancer. (4) A 2012 study even found that a chemical compound found in frankincense called AKBA is successful at killing cancer cells that have become resistant to chemotherapy.

3. Managing Emotional and Behaviour Problems – profound psychological and spiritual benefits

Frankincense is the most valuable essential oil for slowing and deepening breathing, helping to allay fear, anxiety, nervous tension and stress. One of the gifts of Frankincense is its’ chemistry – sesquiterpenes–can cross the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) and facilitates oxygenation of cells for optimal communication at the cellular level. In a study that has already triggered follow-up work, sesquiterpenes were shown to increase the number of certain receptors in the brain and are now considered prospects for treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia.* (Frankincense, Sandalwood, Valerian, Myrrh, Vetiver research). Frankincense is helpful in allowing the past to be in the past, and creating an environment in which optimism and an expectation of freedom in dwelling on current successes that allow peace and self-acceptance to take place.

In a 2012 study, researchers found that the “behavioral effect [of insensole actetate] was concomitant to reduced serum corticosterone levels, dose-dependent down-regulation of corticotropin releasing factor and up-regulation of brain derived neurotrophic factor transcripts IV and VI expression in the hippocampus. These data suggest that IA modulates the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis and influences hippocampal gene expression, leading to beneficial behavioral effects supporting its potential as a novel treatment of depressive-like disorders.” (*)

4. Heals Skin and Prevents Signs of Aging

Skin treated with the sesquiterpenes allows polar compounds such as water to penetrate more effectively. In skincare, Frankincense is particularly helpful for older skins, and has a definite tonic effect, helping to restore some tone to slack looking facial skin, and slowing down the appearance of wrinkles. Frankincense is safe to use during pregnancy -beneficial for fading of stretch marks, surgery scars or marks associated with pregnancy, and for healing dry or cracked skin. reduces appearance of scars and it may also help reduce the appearance of dark spots caused from acne blemishes.

5. Eases Digestion and Supports Detoxification 

It helps to flush out excess water from the abdomen that can cause bloating, and even relieves PMS-related stomach pains.(*) by speeding up the secretion of digestive enzymes. It has been shown to be beneficial in reducing symptoms of leaky gut syndrome, colitis and IBS. (*)

Frankincense oil can also be used for relief from stings such as scorpion stings.

FRANKINCENSE blends well with most floral, woods, spices and citruses, also with patchouli, clary sage, rosemary, basil, vetiver and my favorite mix is with Wild Orange – protector on several levels.

Instant Mind Clarity: Frankincense 3 drops, Wild Orange 3 drops; blend in palm of hands by rubbing palms together and when warm apply to back of neck and forehead and focus on accepting positive thoughts. Makes the Heart Happy.

Dry Skin/Wrinkles on arms and legs: Blend Frankincense EO with DoTerra’s Essential Therapy Hand and Body Lotion and apply to dry areas – especially when going in and out in the cold weather – drink more water to hydrate cells – keep young.

Frankincense is an amazing gift, it helps the cells of our body’s remember how to be perfect again as our original recipe was written. Frankincense seems to be the master mind of oils – it makes everything remember how to be perfect – the cells, the tissues, the organs, the systems, whole body.
