A Special Message from Young Living Oils

Dear Young Living Family,

As you have undoubtedly heard, Japan is currently suffering from the effects of a massive earthquake, which in turn created a devastating tsunami. Our thoughts and prayers are with our distributors and employees in Japan as they cope with this catastrophe. While all Young Living employees are accounted for, we have not yet been able to make contact with all of our distributors. My team and I are making every effort to get in touch with these YL family members to check on their safety.

Beyond the immediate impact of this disaster, several nuclear reactors on the eastern coast of Japan have been compromised. Radiation exposure can have devastating health consequences, a fact I learned during my extensive research on the Chernobyl disaster in the 1980s. As happened with Chernobyl, there are concerns that any leaked radiation from one or more Japanese nuclear reactors may be carried by air currents across large portions of the globe.

Japanese authorities are working to repair these reactors and contain the radiation. However, the true extent of these leaks is not yet known, and they could have the potential to affect people in Japan and across the world. Knowing this, we can take prudent precautionary steps to protect ourselves and loved ones from potential radioactive effects.

Mary and I will be taking several steps to safeguard our home with the powerful air-purifying and DNA-protecting properties of Young Living essential oils, and we recommend that you do the same.

* Use a Young Living diffuser, coupled with the following oils, in the rooms of your home over the coming days and weeks. Diffuse a combination of Melrose, Sacred Frankincense, and Purification essential oils. Combine the oils in pairs when diffusing (for example, Melrose with Sacred Frankincense or Sacred Frankincense with Purification). Melrose is a particularly powerful blend because it contains two melaleuca oils that may protect cells from radiation damage, according to Dr. Daniel Penoel in l’aromathÄ-rapie Exactement.
* Another sensible precaution is to wear an inexpensive dust mask saturated with the above oils while you are outside or traveling.
* A further step Mary and I are taking to protect our environment is burning frankincense resin—an ancient method of purifying the air—throughout our house.

While science has not yet made a demonstrable link between diminished radiation effects and essential oils or resin burning, I believe in doing everything possible to protect my family using natural means.

In addition to the above recommendations, I have created a new kit called QuadShield (#4559). QuadShield (see green products in above box) combines four potent Young Living products: Super C,* Melrose, Longevity, and Thyromin.* These products may have a synergistic, protective effect on your hormonal and immune systems, and I recommend sending this kit to friends and family in Japan, as well as using them personally in your home.

It is not my intention to alarm anyone or cause undue concern over the developing situation in Japan. However, I strongly believe in being proactive and using readily available resources at our disposal to safeguard our health and those we love. I also feel that this recent disaster could be viewed as a wake-up call to all of us about the radiation that surrounds us all the time and the methods that we can use to protect us from it.

The Young Living executive team and I will continue to closely monitor developments in Japan, and we will provide updates and additional information as the picture becomes clearer.

Radiation RX Superstars:

Sea vegetables-with their high sodium alginate content-are great radiation chelators. Choose from nori, wakame, kombu, arame, dulse, hijiki, kelp, and agar agar. Many of these foods-in addition to miso soup-were fed to the staff and patients of a hospital in Nagassaki, Japan when the atomic bomb hit the area in WW2

Vegetables high in beta carotene aid in boosting immunity and protecting mucus membranes from extreme dryness and reddening of the tissues caused from radiation exposure. Choose from kale and all greens, carrots, spinach, pumpkin and winter squash, beets, sweet potatoes, melons, apricots, and other yellow and orange, and red fruits and vegetables.

Homeopathic cell salts-espectially Cadmimum Sulph and Kali Phos-are well recognized radiation antidotes.

Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods help support thyroid function-the gland that is most easily impacted by radiation exposure of any type. Choose from fruit, nuts, and seeds, fish and poultry.

Other helpful radiation food remedies:

High nucleotide content foods to protect DNA integrity. Choose from sardines, anchovies, and brewers yeast.

Adaptogens. Choose from astragalus, ginsing, shiitake, and maitake mushrooms.


Potassium iodide saturates the throid with stable iodide so it won’t absorb radioactive iodine. A fully saturated thryoid would be protected for up to one month-long enough for radioactive iodine (with a half-life of 8 days) to disappear from the environment. Try iodoral, which contains potassium iodide. You can order it by calling UNI Key at (800) 888-4353. Please be aware that because of high demand supplies are limited.

Bee propolis is the resin bees make to build their hives to protect against pathogens and molds. It’s a source of caffeic acid that can protect lymphocytes (immune system cells) from gamma radiation, acts as an anti-infllammatory, and protects against cancer. Try Dr. Ohhira’s Propolis PLUS, which additionally contains healthy probiotics for intestinal fortification, where 75 % of immune receptor sites are located.

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) supplements have been used to reduce tissue injury
brought on by radiation treatments. Studies show it acts not only as an antioxidant, but also as an anti-inflammatory. It helps the body use the trace minerals zinc, copper, and manganese, which defend the mitochondria from free radical damage. Try Oxi-Key, which contains a full dosage of Superoxide Dismutase (5,500 units, 1-3 x day) plus sulfur rich amino acids that open up the detox pathways to help the body excrete toxins and pollutants out of the body.

In the wake of disaster, there are ways to brace for the impact on your health.

From Linda M –
Nutritionally protecting myself with Biolumina (laser-enhanced Spirulina from New Phoenix Rising) for protection from radiation, free radical damage, stress and many other challenges.
