For many, Thieves formula and On Guard are the oil blends of choice for immune boosting essential oils blends, both produced by the arguably leading MLM Aromatherapy companies in the U.S.
Thieves is thought to be the derivative formula that provided protection to the lucky and well-off few who had access to it during the Black Plague of the Middle Ages.
On Guard is newer and very similar to Thieves.
The effective actions of both oil blends include:
- Immune stimulation
- Anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties
- Respiratory tonic against bronchitis, asthma, coughs, and sinusitis
- Air disinfectants
- Fighters against colds/flu, fever, sore throat and muscle aches
MedEssential Oils’ Immuguard, developed by Master Clinical Aromatherapist Nancy D’Angelo, has the aforementioned properties of Thieves/On Guard AND Immuguard has even more oils that are known to stimulate the Lymphatic System.
The Lymphatic System is vital to good health, prevention and recovery from illness, and to reducing the discomforts of flu and cold.
Why the Lymphatic System Matters:
It’s only within the last few years that attention has been paid to the Lymphatic System, which is surprising as it plays such an important role in both disease prevention and recovery because it is the body’s primary immune defense and waste-elimination system. It manufactures monocytes, macrophages/phagoctyes, and lymphocytes (white blood cells) that rid the body of pathogens throughout the body. This incredible system contains 600 lymph nodes that form antibodies that fight infection and has a network of collecting vessels that run parallel to the blood vessels. Because the lymphatic system is in all tissues throughout the body and cleanses tissue through drainage, when we are sick, often times the lymph nodes, where disease causing germs are destroyed, are overwhelmed and become swollen and unable to drain properly. Lymph flow is then hindered, toxic waste increases, and disease-fighting ability decreases.
Taking Care of Business:
Essential oils that stimulate the Lymphatic system are then necessary to assist in lymphatic drainage so that system can do its job of eliminating pathogens.
Immuguard from MedEssential Oils is the only blend that not only provides disease fighting/immune boosting essential oils but also provides essential oils that assist the lymphatic system – more so than the leading MLM brands that have none or very little.
