doTerra Essential Oils for
“Hello, my name is Linda Foote, but most people call me Footie. I am an Essential Oil Coach and certified to give and demonstrate the AromaTouch Technique. I love and enjoy helping anyone who wants to learn how to live a healthier life style in a fun and creative way. I love to empower others with the same education who wants to find balance in their life using oils.”
I am also certified to give and demonstrate the AromaTouch Technique. This “oil application technique” is not a massage, nor is it meant to manipulate muscle tissue or apply deep pressure. It includes light to medium touch, stimulating blood flow and neurological activity by working through known body meridians to enhance the effectiveness of the CPTG essential oils.
My life is filled with joy. I belong to a fun Baltimore Hon group in Maryland. We celebrate the hard working women of the 50’s and 60’s. Local women dressing in colorful dresses, cat eyed glasses, and wild beehive hairdos. It’s a great time playing with our Baltimorese accent.
The reason for supporting the 15th Annual Greater Baltimore Kidney Walk is that I have two dear friends who have suffered kidney failure. Mark Lipinski, Quilt Instructor, Author, and Facebook friend. He received a kidney transplant from his friend and neighbor Mary Eichler back in 2013. Mark is well known to the quilting world from his Quilters Home Magazine. https://marklipinskisblog.wordpress.com
Another dear friend, Teddy Potter. She was on home dialysis for about four years; eventually the complications from her diabetes affected her heart. Teddy was a Quilter, Nurse, and loved helping wherever needed. She is greatly missed.
So this is my first Kidney Walk and I am so looking forward to participating in honor of my two friends.
Cinnamaldehyde may Support Healthy Kidney Function
Cinnamaldehyde, the main chemical constituent of Cinnamon and Cassia essential oils, is well known for its warm, spicy aroma. A study printed in the June 2015 issue of the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry suggests that cinnamaldehyde acts to support healthy molecular function in the kidneys.* The molecular environment of kidneys is dependent on many biochemical pathways.
Biochemical pathways can be thought of as a Rube Goldberg machine. One molecule stimulates another molecule to act on a different set of molecules, and so on, in a chain of events until the desired outcome is achieved. This study showed that cinnamaldehyde inactivated the JAK2-STAT1/STAT3 biochemical pathway in the kidney cells, which may help keep kidney cells healthy.*
doTerra Zendocrine essential oil blend supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances.* It supports the healthy cleansing and filtering functions of the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin.* This powerful blend combines Rosemary, Cilantro, and Juniper Berry, known for their detoxifying properties and ability to support healthy liver function, while Tangerine and Geranium have purifying effects against unhealthy substances.* Zendocrine helps cleanse the body of toxins and free radicals that can slow the body’s systems down, leaving a heavy, weighted feeling.*

From Dr. Axe
Lemon essential oil and helichrysum essential oil: May reduce the risk of kidney stones by supporting the kidneys and liver in detoxification. Put two drops of citrus oils like lemon, lime, wild orange or grapefruit in your water twice daily. With helichrysum oil, rub topically over lower abdomen twice daily.
Fill a 10 ml. rollerball bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Massage this mixture over the kidneys (both sides of the mid back, at the lowest two ribs) directly and undiluted, or mixed with a coconut oil.
Place a compress over the are for 5-10 minutes (a thin dry towel); then a hot, wet towel. Topped with another dry towel.) Repeat daily. Drink lots of water, eat a healthy diet, and walk…walk….walk!
“We started our dōTerra® history with me. My name is Pat D and I had End-stage 3 kidney failure. My GFR [Glomerular Filtration Rate – a test used to check how well the kidneys are working] was 37. They say kidneys don’t repair themselves. But we like to say when you give your body the support it needs your body will repair itself! So I got with my sister D, a retired surgical nurse, and she created the following protocol for me:”
- dōTerra’s Lifelong Vitality Pack [LLV] – I took a double dose of the LLV twice a day, which would be four from each of the three bottles both morning and evening.
- Zendocrine® Detoxification Complex – taken as directed.
- Zendocrine Essential Oil Blend – two drops neat.
- Frankincense Essential Oil – two drops neat.
- Lemongrass Essential Oil – two drops neat.
- Lemon Essential Oil – two drops neat.
- On Guard® Essential Oil Blend – two drops neat [this oil can be “hot” so you can use it in a carrier oil.]
“I massaged the Essential Oils and Essential Oil Blends into the soles of my feet, in no particular order – I wasn’t being scientific at that time, I was brand new to the oils. I did tell my specialist what I was doing and he said it “wouldn’t help,” that I was “grasping at straws” and that “very soon, I would need to go on dialysis to protect the rest of my organs,” but he would monitor me. My Nephrologist tested me every month and, to his amazement, my stats improved. 5½ months later he discharged me as being well.”“For a reason unknown to me, this past year I was put on Lipitor for eight months. I ended up with stage 3 kidney failure again! My GFR was 41. My Nephrologist couldn’t understand why, with my history of kidney failure, any doctor would have put me on Lipitor because it’s known to cause damage to the kidneys. I was more than upset, but I went back to my original doTERRA protocol. Within two months my stats improved to almost perfect. The specialist said that I’m not even at stage 1 and that everybody my age was where I was.”
