Hormones and Lipidema--the Cause or the Cure?

My lipidema showed up five years after I began using birth control pills.  No matter what website I go to online for answers, the same line keeps repeating:  the cause of lipidema is unknown, but researchers suspect hormonal changes. So if the hormone factor is the #1 suspect, why don't I see anything in the websites about birth control pills, the endocrine system, the hypothalamus/pituitary/pineal/thymus connection, synthetic hormone replacement therapies, hormones in our meats, pharmaceuticals, etc.  It seems like that would be the place to look.  Why are we given so may directions that steer us away from that obvious focus? So we'll pay for liposuction?!!

doTERRA Essential Oils Convention September 2019. Don't miss it!

Essential Oils are one of our best tools, and the best oils are doTERRA's, if you ask me.
doTERRA's annual huge convention is coming up in Salt Lake City.
Either you didn't buy tickets in time before they sold out, or you prefer--like me-- to watch without having to travel and fight for hotel and airline space.  We won't miss out because I'll be showing the whole convention via live stream online at
Be Ready Inc in San Marcos from Sep 11-13.  Email me at erica@footzoners.com if you'd like me to save you a seat.

Swollen Lymph Glands and Feet? Try this protocol

Have you ever wondered which essential oils you could use when your feet get swollen and your lymph glands get sore?  I use this blend in a lotion when I foot zone my customers who have stagnant lymph ducts in their ankles and feet.  Here's the ratio:  10 drops tangerine, 6 dr juniper berry, 3 dr geranium, 2 dr rosemary and 1 dr cilantro.  I make enough of this to put in some good spa lotion to keep on hand.  I use doTERRA essential oils because I've tried enough of the competing brands to know that they're no competition for the purity and integrity of the doTERRA brand oils.  They are the ones I trust after years and years of comparisons.  https://footzoners.com

Lipidema Projects in various states now. Will I be joining?

Have you seen "The Lipidema Project" websites for Massachusetts, Hawaii, SoCal, etc?  They're starting to spread.  That's good.  Except............
Have you noticed that the only solutions offered still are either compression garments, liposuction or air compression? 
I don't for one moment accept that those are my only options.
For that reason, I haven't joined up with any of them, nor will I until more serious attention is paid to other avenues for holistic change.  The answers are out there, and I'm looking hard every day for them.  I don't choose to be stuck with only those limited options.

Compression garments? OUCH!

Did you know that those who opt for compression garments usually wear them for an average of 2 days before giving up on them?  And they're expensive!  There's got to be a much more comfortable solution that squeezing, sucking the fat out with a vacuum hose or trying to push fluids up through terribly clogged lymphatic pathways.  I just don't buy it.

Continuing my education quest for natural healing--getting rid of fear

I'm tooting my own horn today.  I just got my test results back and I finished my kinesiology course with honors.  So now my areas of holistic education include essential oils, aromatherapy, herbs, reflexology, kinesiology, foot zoning, craniosacral therapy, emotion release, naturopathy and anatomy & physiology.   Every one of these areas of research is uniquely fascinating and  yet actually quite interconnected to the others.  Most of them I can apply to the feet during a foot zone session. Yay for educated choices and informed consent.  No more running on fear due to ignorance or innocence. We can be educated and articulate about our own wellness.

Is your pituitary gland toxic with heavy metals? Use Essential Oils

Perhaps one of the clues to solving lipidema is getting the heavy metals out of our master glands in our brains: the hypothalamus, thalamus, pituitary and pineal glands.  I know it's one of my biggest priorities, so I work on it with things like Essential Oils.
Although cilantro is the top recommended essential oil for heavy metals, my favorite is celery seed oil.  Other favorites are carrot seed oil, parsley oil, green mandarin, tangerine and cinnamon. 
doTERRRA has fabulous cilantro, green mandarin, tangerine and cinnamon.  I have to get the carrot, celery and parsley oils from another supplier for now, but because I know that the quality is less than doTERRA's, I don't want to recommend the source.  But you could email me for more info at ericabeready@gmail.com.
