Day FIIIIIVE! More Food Talk! We are excited about today because we get to share with you some of our favorite foods and essential oils that some of us use to detox our bodies.
All this talk about seeds and genetic engineering and pesticides is way above our heads! It can be intimidating trying to understand how it affects us. One of the things that helped us tremendously was watching documentaries about this issue. One of the documentaries that we recommend is FOOD Inc! They really broke it down in a way that many could understand.
We hope you have been able to watch either or both of the films we recommended from module 17, day 4 — Food, Inc. and/or Genetic Roulette the Movie.
Can you tell that we truly hope you want to be educated!? If you have not already, we hope you have some time this coming weekend to watch.
Comment below, when you watch the films, with your conclusion on GMOs and Roundup.
Yesterday we looked at the toxin in our food called Glyphosate (found in Roundup) which is an herbicide for Genetically Modified foods. The reality is that every time we eat a GE
(genetically engineered) food item we are taking a dose of Roundup with it. (1) It is said that over 80% of the U.S. food supply is now reportedly contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate. The recommendation is that you can avoid harmful pesticides by purchasing organic food, which is certainly a great option! However, USDA has now allowed a certain amount of pesticide and herbicide residue, including glyphosate, in USDA certified organic products as well! Wait, what? (see: http://healthimpactnews.com/2014/alert-certified-organic-food-grown-in-u-s-found-contaminated-with-glyphosate-herbicide/)
So what now? Grow your own food in healthy soil? There is another option and what we do is buy organic as much as possible and then wash ALL produce with the Young Living Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak!
Why is it important to wash your produce in The Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak? Because it’s formulated with the powerful, cleansing power of three exclusive essential oil blends—DiGize Vitality, Thieves Vitality, and Purification. We will talk about DiGize Vitality in the next post, it is a great essential oil to DETOX your body with!
Now that we’ve talked about the harmful toxin Glyphosate and GE foods and how we can take extra measures by buying organic and cleansing ALL fruit and produce with Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak/Spray. We wanted to highlight a very dear Essential Oil Blend that many use DAILY to DETOX their bodies: Di-Gize Vitality.
Let me tell you a TRUE story about Di-Gize Vitality… listen up!
Gary Young has discussed with us about a plot of land where they used DiGize Vitality Blend on it to break down the toxins and pesticides. After spraying this land with DiGize Vitality three times, ALL evidence of the chemicals was GONE! It was RESTORED to its original condition!!! WHAT!? That is INCREDIBLE NEWS! DiGize Vitality actually digests the pesticides and chemical residue left in the soil or on our produce! Look at the Fruit and Veggie Wash as an extra layer of protection against environmental toxins.
So… Here’s our hypothesis… If DiGize Vitality can do this on the dirt, we are willing to gamble that it should rid our bodies of these toxins. We recommend using DiGize Vitality essential oil to help you enjoy each and every meal!
Add 1–2 drops to a gel capsule and take as a dietary supplement every day—or whenever you need it. Mix with water and Peppermint Vitality for a rejuvenating infused water, or combine with honey for a sweet treat.
Also, the citrus essential (Lemon Vitality, Grapefruit Vitality, Orange Vitality, even Peppermint Vitality) oils are huge in supporting the liver as it breaks down chemicals. They are also wonderful with promoting the bodies ability to detox.
Use your arsenal of Young Living’s Vitality line of essential oils because nothing is going to help you in the fight against the onslaught of chemicals in your environment more than Young Livings powerful Vitality essential oils!!!

And have you tried Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Flour, the True Grit Einkorn Pancake & Waffle Mix, or the True Grit Einkorn Spaghetti? Let me tell you what we love about these products. If you want to avoid GMOs, Glyphosate, or other harmful pesticides, Young Living has made it possible to enjoy wheat again. This is especially helpful if you have gluten intolerance (not Celiac).
Einkorn is the original “staff-of-life” grain, known as the oldest variety of wheat, which dates back to the beginning of time. Einkorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it a superior choice because of the compatibility with the human body when compared to the modern hybrid wheat of today. Einkorn grain is easier to digest, so nutrients are better absorbed. Today Young Living is helping to bring einkorn back to its rightful prominence in the world. Some of us were able to consume breads again this year and ENJOY them without digestive discomfort!
And check out the Vitality Line! It’s an essential oil supplement line that is intended for dietary supplement and culinary use. This line provides the freedom to share and explore some of Young Living’s best-loved essential oils in a variety of nutritious and delicious applications.
So many people can EAT with relief now! We are so blessed by Young Living’s diligence as stewards of the Earth!
