Don’t Eat the Fish

Screen shot 2014-10-08 at 5.44.40 AM

When I was nine or ten I went fishing with my dad and older brother. We must have caught three or four good sized fish. Then my dad and brother gutted the fish which I considered disgusting.

When we got home my mom cooked up the fish, and I remember the entire house smelled of it. Then we sat down as a family to eat all this fried fish for dinner. I didn’t get all the bones out of my fish and I didn’t like the fishy taste. As a result of this experience, I don’t like anything to do with catching or eating fish. So my own rule is don’t eat the fish. This is a great rule for me because of a negative experience that I personally had. For many other people this would be a terrible rule.

How many of us follow rules even when we don’t understand why we are following them? Many rules that we follow are because of a negative experience that happened to someone else, or because of some unusual circumstances.

Mary was cooking a ham for dinner when one of her children asked her, “Why do you cut off the end of the ham when putting it in a pan? Mary’s response was “when I saw my mom cook a ham she always cut off the end of her hams.” Mary decided to call up her mom to find out why she cut the end of her ham off. Her response was, “my hams wouldn’t fit in any of my pans, so I cut the end off.”

Most things we do are based on how it was done in the past. When we get sick, what do we do, we reach for the pain relief capsules. We do what we were taught as children and young adults. We did the best we knew how with the knowledge we had at the time.

Now we know that with every man made drug there are harmful side effects, some minimal, others very dangerous, and compromising to our health. There is hope! I am excited to learn that there are essential oils that have no dangerous side effects, with positive results. I am happy to report my first line of defense when sick or healthy is by using powerful essential oils that have been studied for their healing properties.

Melaleuca is Antibacterial

Melaleuca Has Healing Properties

For years I have suffered with canker sores. For all of you who don’t know how painful a canker sore is, this is a pain that doesn’t stop, coming from the depths of your soul. This is a pain that starts out slow and lasts long. In fact canker sores can last up to three weeks. No sooner would one canker sore start to heal, then another one would form. Sometimes I could have as many as three canker sores in my mouth at one time.

Canker sores appear to be brought on by many types of stress, either emotional, physical, or chemical. Emotional stress can be caused by any situation that puts you under pressure. Physical stress might be caused by an abrasion in your mouth, burns from hot foods, or even biting your tongue or cheek. Chemical stress means anything that changes your body chemistry, such as an illness or a change in your eating habits.

There are two things I have found that are very helpful with my canker sores. First I take L-Lysine. This is a very important amino acid that you can find in the vitamin section of the grocery store. The second thing I use is melaleuca essential oil. I rub this oil on my canker sores. It numbs my canker sores. Melaleuca essential oil is a very powerful oil. It is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-infectious. Since I started using melaleuca essential oil the length of time I have a canker sore is a lot less. Who would have thought the oil in a small bottle would be so effective?
