Stress stored and fought by the body is possibly the number one health danger. It is truly a killer. Making sure we have tools to help our bodies physically and emotionally deal with stress is one of the biggest changes we can make in our health!

What happens when you're stressed? Your adrenal glands go into overdrive and your cortisol levels go up. High levels of cortisol cause the body to scavenge for protein to convert into glucose to provide energy for the brain to deal with the perceived stress (also severely depresses the immune system). So, Adrenaline kicks in. Adrenaline is your fight or flight hormone (also helps to control blood pressure, sweating, etc.) Your adrenals can spike creating a feeling of energy then crash with extreme fatigue when they run out of materials to work with. (Feel fine in the morning, but when contemplating work will get extremely tired. The thought of work can wear them out; any type of stress will cause the adrenal glands to overreact (extremely tense nervous) or fail to respond (suddenly/extremely tired).

When cortisol is produced too frequently, it can have negative health consequences such as feelings of fatigue, difficulty maintaining a healthy weight, and difficulty maintaining optimal health of cardiovascular systems.

When cortisol levels are chronically high, it affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, basically affecting all your hormones and disrupting the natural feedback loop. This causes the body to be less sensitive to the ‘Stop Signal,’ and creates a vicious cycle of elevated stress signals.

This is the root cause of adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue can bring with it negative health consequences such as fatigue, weight gain, and cardiovascular disorders.
Enter CortiStop.
CortiStop is an herb and essential oil supplement that helps to naturally balance the stress response by calming the body and lowering cortisol levels. As cortisol declines, strength and energy return, and the body moves back to a state of equilibrium.

Triggers for elevated cortisol levels:
  • Excess heat/cold
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Coffee drinking
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Malnutrition
  • Personal relationships
  • Physical/emotional trauma
  • Surgery
  • Diseases
  • Big life events - job changes/problems, moving, etc.
My Top 5 Products Right Now
Losing my dad last month was hard. Taking care of him before that was hard. But honestly? 2020 was hard. 2021 is hard. Taking care of my health and being a good steward of my body, doesn't need a life-changing circumstance to ignite the fire in my wellness. And you don't need one either. So how am I personally making my way through this? Sleep, hydration, prayer, quiet time with God, His word, talking to friends, allowing myself to work through my emotions AND using products that support my body through this.
Cortistop - contains pregnenolone (which helps testosterone regulation for increased libido), DHEA (a hormonal building block), clary sage, fennel, frankincense, and peppermint all working synergistically to stop the overproduction of cortistop and help you regain balance. 
⟡ Take 2 capsules in the morning before breakfast. If desired, for extra benefits, take another 2 capsules before bed.

EndoFlex - blend of Spearmint, Geranium, and other pure essential oils that help balance and support overall endocrine function. Helps stimulate normal thyroid function.
⟡ Apply 3-5 drops diluted or neat over thyroid area (front-mid/low neck) and/or balls of feet (vitaflex point for thyroid)

Progessence Plus - formulated specifically for women and ideal for women over 30 (even though all ages from puberty on can use). Includes Sacred Frankincense, Bergamot, Clove, Balsam,  Copaiba, Cedarwood, and Peppermint as well as Wild yam extract and Vitamin E.  Wild yam extract is a naturally occurring phytoestrogen that helps balance out estrogen and progesterone levels.  Any negative connotations in relation to progesterone refer to the SYNTHETIC forms of progesterone. There is actually a cancer correlation to the synthetic form.  It is crucial to use a natural progesterone supplement to help detox the body of xenoestrogens. 
⟡ Apply to carotids (neck area on both sides), inside of wrists, and inside of ankles 
 ⟡ Apply as needed, especially during the menstrual cycle for added support  

Joy Essential Oil - This oil is a powerhouse when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or if you have a pre-teen/teen going through some big emotions linked to hormonal changes. This one we love to diffuse to literally change the emotional atmosphere in the room. It is known as an oil that helps connect mind/body/ and soul and can pull us out of grief. It is a big heart opening oil and often the holidays can stir up a lot of emotions for people. I have been using this over my heart and in a scent tent!

Super B - a comprehensive vitamin complex containing all eight essential, energy-boosting B  vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12). Now features a natural folate source derived from lemon peels and methylcobalamin which is a more bioavailable source of  B12.  Why is this important?? Most Vitamin B supplements today are synthetically processed and are not readily absorbed in our bodies. Even natural supplements are processed in ways that aren't bioidentical to their most natural state. This separates Young Living from other companies! 
Vitamin B is CRUCIAL for adrenal functioning. It acts as a coenzyme in many processes of the adrenals such as using various hormones for energy conversions as well as the sympathetic nervous system response to stress.
