Don’t underestimate how toxic air fresheners and scented candles are. Even if you don’t use these in your own home, it doesn’t mean you’re not exposed in stores, doctors’ offices, public restrooms, or friends’ homes.
“We think that by using an air freshener, for example, we’re creating a more pleasing environment. Once we unleash that plug-in air freshener, though, our sense of smell instantly becomes disabled. When you’re living in a home or working in an office or other environment with a plug-in air freshener spewing chemical-laden oil into the air, you may not smell it anymore become you’ve become desensitized to that scent.
These chemically scented, vaporized poisons hurt the lungs—their waxy, oily residue builds up in the lung sacs. If you’re someone who doesn’t smoke and yet you love plug-in air fresheners, you’re better off removing your plug-in air freshener and starting to smoke. That’s right; you actually have a better chance of longer-lasting health and vitality without complicated diseases if you smoke cigarettes than if you breathe plug-in air fresheners day in and day out.
The oily film also ends up in the liver when it enters the bloodstream from the lungs. Plus we swallow air freshener when we breathe it in through our mouth, and that brings it to the intestinal tract, from which it enters the bloodstream and heads to the liver, where it can reduce liver function.
When the chemicals enter our bloodstream, our natural killer cells, lymphocytes, and other white blood cells absorb them, and that instantly weakens our immune cells and even kills some off. Our white blood cells need clean, fresh, oxygenated blood; with chemical scents, our white count becomes hindered. Exposure to a heavy dosage of air freshener or scented candle, or similar scent could mean three to four days of a weakened and lowered immune system. The synthetic scent chemicals can, at the same time, feed viruses and bacteria, allowing them to prosper and reproduce, leading to further illness. Someone who’s prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs), sinus infections, or flare-ups of fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, lupus, MS, eczema, psoriasis, or Hashimoto’s may experience a new flare-up following exposure.”
We can’t avoid these toxins all the time, so it’s important to know how to effectively cleanse them out of your body. You can find out how to do this in Cleanse to Heal.
Vertigo is caused by one or more of the over 60 varieties of Epstein-Barr virus releasing neurotoxins that adhere to the vagus nerve, inflaming and irritating it. This causes a range of symptoms, including dizziness or the feeling that you’re on a moving boat, since the vagus nerve is mainly responsible for equilibrium. Medical science and research are still unaware that this is the true cause of this neurological condition.
With Ménière’s, the theoretical belief that calcium crystals and stones cause this disease is inaccurate. In truth, Ménière’s is neurological, caused by a low-grade viral infection affecting the vagus nerves and nerves inside the inner ear

Lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis, is an essential herb for calming the nerves—in particular, those involved with digestion. Nerves play a role in much of the digestive distress we experience in this day and age. If someone’s stomach or intestines are irritated for no identifiable reason, it’s usually due to sensitive nerves.
Lemon balm has soothing properties that make it a gift from God and Mother Nature to deal with our frazzling world. It has bioactive phytochemicals such as undiscovered alkaloids that calm the nerve receptors at the digestive tract so that the nerves become less sensitized and inflammation reduces. This makes lemon balm a valuable herb for stress assistance.
Lemon balm helps countless health problems, with a high contribution factor to almost every part of the body.
Extremely high in trace minerals such as boron, manganese, copper, chromium, molybdenum, selenium, and iron, lemon balm also has large amounts of the macromineral silica.
Lemon balm is a B12-conserving herb—which means that it monitors your stores of this vitamin and keeps your body from using it all up.
Anti-parasitic, antiviral, and antibacterial throughout the body, lemon balm helps fight the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, and other herpetic bugs such as HHV-6, which are behind countless chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions.
Lemon balm is an amazing herb for tonsillitis, which is inflammation caused by strep bacteria.
Lemon balm detoxifies the liver, spleen, and kidneys, and helps reduce bladder inflammation, which makes it a star for helping to alleviate interstitial cystitis and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
How To Use:
Lemon balm is most therapeutic when taken as an alcohol-free tincture or as herbal tea. Check out Cleanse To Heal for specific supplement and dosage recommendations for over 200 symptoms and conditions.

Either emotional injury or toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and copper, or many times, both causes create the symptoms of OCD in combination with each other. In some extreme cases of OCD, electrical impulses that travel down neurons in certain specific areas of the brain where there are mercury and aluminum deposits then collide with those deposits. Each time, this can cause a tiny “explosion” that temporarily sends a signal back the other way.
OCD can show up in many ways. Some common examples include:

This group of troublemakers is extremely toxic to the central nervous system. Anybody with neurological sensitivities and symptoms will be especially sensitive to them.
It’s impossible to avoid all of these toxins, but we can understand what we are up against so we can minimize our exposure to these toxins when possible and take the steps to heal and cleanse our bodies of the rest. Knowing what we are up against is a critical step to being empowered to heal and support and bodies with what they need. If we turn a blind eye, we can cheat ourselves of the opportunity to heal and even prevent future sickness.
Let's take a brief look at a few of these troublemakers. Read more about each of them in Liver Rescue.
Exhaust fumes: Exposure comes from walking down the street, grabbing a package at a delivery person’s truck while the truck is still running, getting stuck in traffic on your way to work, passing a lawn that’s being mowed or mowing your own, walking up to a restaurant for lunch just as someone fires up a car a few feet away, and so on. Although carbon monoxide is deadly if someone is poisoned by it when there isn’t enough ventilation for exhaust fumes, it’s not the poison in the liver. The petrochemical particles in the exhaust itself are what end up in the liver.
Dioxins: Imagine a world coated with a dust too fine to see that’s inhaled and eaten by every creature on the planet. That’s our world, and dioxins are the “dust.” These pollutants, a byproduct of over 100 years of chemical factory malfeasance, find their way into air, water, and food. Modern life is generalized dioxin exposure.
Carpet chemicals: These include the chemicals used to treat new carpets during manufacture, the chemicals released from old carpets when they’re cleaned, and the carpet cleaning chemicals themselves. We inhale carpet chemicals and also get them on our skin and clothes when we sit on carpets or walk on them in bare feet.
You can read more about the petrochemical troublemaker group in Liver Rescue, along with critical information on how to cleanse these toxins out of your body and heal from chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions in both Liver Rescue and Cleanse to Heal.

These fluid-filled cysts on the ovaries are often caused by one or more of the over 60 varieties of Epstein-Barr virus combined with a variety of toxins and poisons. The EBV frequently creates injuries to cells in the ovaries and sometimes weakens the ovaries overall. Viruses and toxins are in relationship: a virus in the body consumes toxins there, and then releases more destructive chemical compounds that denature and injure healthy cells. As this pattern repeats itself, injured cells form into living scar tissue, with the virus trapped inside.
The cyst formation process is how a healthy body protects itself, making sure this activity happens within the cyst and not outside of it, in other places in the body. While trapped, the virus works to survive. Blood vessels develop out of the cyst in order to draw nutrients and fuel back inside to feed these injured, unhealthy cells and viruses and keep them alive. The fuel that the cyst draws in makes the difference in whether it continues to grow or starts to reduce.
Troublemaker foods such as eggs rapidly worsen the condition, and a high-fat/ high-protein diet, especially one that includes eggs, milk, cheese, and butter, impedes the healing process of PCOS. Eggs are a leading fuel that can make cysts grow larger over time, because eggs feed viruses, which means that more unhealthy cells grow and develop inside the cysts.
