Average American Family Now Spends More On Healthcare Than On Groceries

drugs-moneyAccording to Medical Daily, the amount of money spent by the average American family of four now exceeds the amount spent on groceries per year.  According to the 2013 Milliman Medical Index, a typical household spends up to $22,030 in health care expenses.  This marks a 6.3% rise from the same report in 2012.  The last four years have shown a similar percentage rise  – cost increases of $1300 on average per year.  This is astounding.  It’s time for a  change – an essential oil change!!  This is one more reason to incorporate a preventative healthcare model in your family – it’s actually cheaper, safer and more effective, in our opinion.  Learn how by signing for our next Medicine Cabinet Makeover or listening to one of our Podcast episodes.

Galatians 6:9 – Keep Doing Good

bible verse - john 1“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.” – The Message, NAVPress

A lot of times with chronic-type illness situations, treating things naturally takes some time – many times more than a typical modern medicine remedy.  We encourage you to keep doing good, because you will reap a good reward.

The world teaches us about the ‘quick fix’.  Is that what God encourages us in – a quick fix?  Most of the time, not – sometimes it is – but that’s up to God to perform a miracle.

Whatever illness or sickness you are dealing with naturally, wait on the Lord for the healing.  Most of the time, He wants you to go through a process and journey of healing.  Don’t give up – don’t quit!!

Essential Bible Verse Of The Week: Matthew 7:13-14

bible verse - john 1Matthew 7:13-14 says (The Message) “Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention.”

This is a great reminder to not be deceived into short term success in replacement of long-term abundant life, which only comes by following God’s plan for your life.

Which Essential Oil Diffuser Do We Recommend?

diffuserOn our podcast this week, we discussed essential oil diffusers.  A diffuser is like a humidifier to bring healing vapor or like a candle that you would use to bring good smells to your room.  A diffuser is made especially to bring the vapor of an essential oil into a room.  There is one diffuser we recommend to everyone.

Especially, if you’re on a tight budget, the GreenAir Spa Vapor Diffuser is great.  You can get it usually for around $30 on Amazon.  This one lasts 2 hours, but the vapor should continue to effectively fill up a medium sized room for 4 hours after it’s done.  We have purchased one of these for each of the kids bedrooms.  Most every night, we let them run.  We change up the essential oils we add to them depending on the condition or need.

Another one we love, sometimes the GreenAir is sold out, so our second favorite is the Classic Aromatherapy.  It’s a little more expensive, but can also be purchased on Amazon.
