Hey everyone, it's been awhile, but we have been working on a number of other projects of late! First of all, we were featured on our friend Samantha Lee Wright's podcast, Essential Oil Revolution. We had a great discussion about essential oils for focus and energy. Pop over and check out Sam's podcast. It's incredibly informative. Kim and I listened to it while we were driving to England and came home inspired and motivated and ready to roll! All in the same week, we started the Couch to 5k running program and gave up sugar. I can't credit all of that to Sam's podcast, but indirectly some of our motivation came from there. You can have a listen right here:
Sam also interviewed Shawn Stevenson from The Model Health Show, and since we had a long drive ahead of us, we went over to his page and added his shows to our Stitcher feed. He's amazing with explaining the science behind health in an understandable way, and after about five hours of podcasts, we decided to really try to get healthy after we got back. So far, so good! We've been without sugar for 12 days now and have successfully completed almost two weeks of the Couch to 5k programme.
In the podcast, we also talk about EnergyDOTS, which Kim discovered while doing an essential oil event last year in England. In our quest to get healthy, we've also been thinking about the amount of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the many devices in our house and our environment. Here is some information about them
In 2006 Swiss researchers from Bern University presented the findings of a systematic analysis of all research results concerning the assessment of health risks from mobile telephone frequencies. They found that 33% of studies funded by industrial concerns conclude that exposure to mobile telephone radio frequencies has an effect on our organism. That figure rises to over 80% in studies carried out with public funding.
The European Parliament has recommended the precautionary principle. "While electrical and electromagnetic fields in certain frequency bands have fully beneficial effects which are applied in medicine, other non-ionising frequencies, be they sourced from extremely low frequencies, power lines or certain high frequency waves used in the fields of radar, telecommunications and mobile telephony, appear to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals, as well as the human body when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values.
"One must respect the precautionary principle and revise the current threshold values; waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco."

In May 2015 Associate Professor Olle Johansson, a neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and an expert in this area of research was quoted in The Telegraph as saying “If this environment is safe we’re talking about in the order of 15,000 to 25,000 papers – in peer-reviewed scientific journals – all being wrong. That has never happened before.”
Kim is also making EnergyDOTS part of her business. We've got them on our phones, the dog, and even on the router. I've definitely noticed a change in the amount of heat coming off of my phone. If you'd like to get a few for yourself, hop on over to our shop.
Speaking of shops, you might have noticed that we've also been working hard to set up an online store for oily accessories. Over here in Europe, it can be really difficult to find things like rollers, glass spray bottles, nasal inhalers, etc without access to Abundant Health in the U.S. We've sourced many of those things and are slowly adding them to our online store. The first thing new customers tend to ask is "Where do I get xxx?" Pop on over there and do let us know what we can add for you! One of our favorite products is the Hooter Stick, aptly named by Kim after our travels to YL Convention last year. Don't know what it is? Watch the video below and you'll know why you can't live without it.
