This entire month of February, we will focus on lymphatic health and essence protocols that we have used that have made a difference in our lives and the lives of others. This week, we look at essences that support white blood cell production.
First of all, what are white blood cells and why are they important? White blood cells are part of our immune system, helping the body to fight infections and maintain homeostasis. They are important protectors that work on our behalf, helping the Lymphatic System to work efficiently. There are certain plants that tell your white blood cells to jump into action, strengthening them and calling upon their power. This week, we will discuss how Myrrh, Lemon, and German Chamomile are excellent sources of natural medicine to get the white blood cells working for the body.
Myrrh is used in both Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine for infections as a powerful plant healer that kills drug-resistant bacteria. She is wonderful for white blood cell production, and is both anti-viral and anti-fungal. Energetically, Myrrh brings up the deep, hidden emotions inside to have greater awareness that leads to one becoming more of themselves. Lemon has been highly regarded as an anti-infectious agent since ancient Egyptian times. She is anti-fungal and anti-viral, and is known to stimulate white blood cells to act. Emotionally, Lemon promotes self-acceptance and self-Love, supporting a positive outlook and attitude in any situation. German Chamomile is known as the "star among medicinal species". She is anti-fungal and helps to stimulate white blood cell production. Her energetics support processing life in a peaceful, calm, and graceful manner, while letting go of anger, stress, and depression. All three of these plant teachers help to support wasting dis-ease, otherwise known as cancer. Keeping the white blood cell count high during cancer treatments is crucial in the healing process.
It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. So, if you have experienced immune system issues for 1 year, then anoint daily for 1 month for best results. Anoint onto the area of concern, the neck or wrists, or on the bottoms of the feet for best results. Addressing white blood cells, you can anoint directly onto the neck, wrists, and inner thighs for quick absorption into the blood stream and Lymphatic System. For the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops "neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing each essence 2-3 times a day. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat" on your skin. If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing.
