Goodbye Night Sweats Essential Oil Blend

night-sweats

Most of us are on the lookout for help in the hormone department, in my case, I wanted to jumpstart my metabolism and lift that heavy feeling of an overburdened body, mind and soul, easing night sweats has been a wondrous side benefit of the journey.

Finding hormonal balance is a worthy goal indeed because when the endocrine system is out of whack we experience weight gain, mood swings, thinning hair, chronic discomfort, hot flashes, night sweats, cloudy brain, lazy libido, you name it, it all begins with the thyroid. I make no claim that my little blend is a cure all for this long list of gripes but it sure is helping a lot of us!

"We are wising up and recognizing that more subtle changes in function can have significant health consequences. Remember, this is the master metabolism hormone that controls the function and activity of almost every organ and cell in your body. When it is sluggish or slow, everything slows down." Dr. Mark Hyman According to Dr. Mark Hyman, the most common culprits that contribute to a tired thyroid are: 

  • Environmental toxins - such as pesticides that act as hormone or endocrine disruptors, interfering with metabolism and function. A study showed that as we lose weight, pesticides are released from their fat tissue. Yuck.
  • Stress - the more stress you're under the worse your thyroid functions.
  • Inflammation - perhaps from gluten intolerance caused by genetically modified grains with some very strange proteins or processed food (Frankenfoods). Both can signal the body to create antibodies that fight to rid the body of foreign substance. This is a chronic inflammatory response that interferes with Thyroid function.
  • Nutrient deficiencies - Iodine, vitamin D, omega-3 fats, selenium, zinc, vitamin A and B vitamins.

I researched essential oils that address inflammation and detoxification, namely Turmeric and Black Pepper, Bergamot, Lemongrass and Frankincense and created a detox/hormone stablizer with anti-inflammatory properties blend and call it Function.

Because essential oils work better when we live a healthy lifestyle I increased my water intake (pure water, no plastic) and add 2 drops of a citrus essential oil (Bergamot is my preference for stimulation of autophagy and, detox) per 32 oz or more of H2O - my goal is at least 70 ounces of water each day. I eat organically, source only grass fed, pastured or wild caught protein and walk at least 30 min each day in sunlight, natural vitamin D is everything folks!

How to use Function for those blasted night sweats

My protocol is simple. Function Blend is packaged in a convenient, ready to roll bottle so when you're ready for bed, your final step is to simply roll the blend on the bottoms of your feet and settle in.

Pro tips: avoid caffeine after 4pm, keep blue light exposure (cell phone, computer monitor) to a minimum in the evening and, choose to control your biology while you sleep - power down the WIFI router in the house to reduce circadian rhythm disruption. FYI this is a good subject to explore!

No More Night Sweats!!!

"Maybe a little TMI but I have Hashimotos and get crazy night sweats. They are AWFUL!! I am so so so thrilled to say I've been using function at night on my ankles, wrists and thyroid and haven't had night sweats in months! It really is a miracle!"
 

Relief

"I've only been using this for about a month and I am pleased. Hoping continued use will prove it to be what's helping me. I've just felt 'off' and tired and yucky for about 3 years now. Migraines on and off, horrible menstrual cycles. Doctors not seeming concerned when I share these things with them. So I finally decided to give this a try. I just have had my first cycle since using this and it's been the 'best one' I've had in 3 years! I'm thinking it must have to do with this! It's the only thing I've changed up. So I'm giving function the credit and will see how next month goes."

Review

"I too heard about the Function Blend from Hypothyroid Mom. Followed the protocol and loved it. I had my naturopath muscle test it and she supports me using it. I currently put a z at the base of my neck for Hashimoto's and two lines above my ankles for adrenal fatigue. I also received a free sample of Serenity Blue Salve. Thanks Rebecca. Totally love it and bought it tonight as well as reordered the Function Blend."
