What exactly are essential oils and where do they come from?
Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile organic compounds found in the roots, bark, leaves, flowers and rind of plants and fruits. Meaning, they are the chemicals that release quickly from the plant into the air that gives off smell and a pleasing aroma. They provide protection for the plants (and subsequently to humans as well) as they are rich in antioxidants and are full of antimicrobial power (i.e. they ward off viruses, fungi and bacteria).
What is your background and what was your goal in exploring essential oils for weight loss and overall health?
ERIC ZIELINSKI, DC ("Dr. Z") I am a public health researcher trained as a chiropractor and aromatherapist, and the national bestselling author of The Healing Power of Essential Oils. I have been honored to be referred to as a preeminent authority on essential oils and biblical health and an internationally sought-after speaker, reaching more than 10 million people a year through our website NaturalLivingFamily.com website and appearances in online summits and documentaries.
SABRINA ANN ZIELINSKI I am a fitness instructor, natural health and DIY guru, lactation consultant, health coach, pageant trainer, and mother of four. People refer to me as the mastermind behind the allergy-friendly recipes, DIY remedies, and other wellness tips on our website NaturalLivingFamily.com.
We both know what it's like to be sick and to (thankfully) how to recover. Dr. Z battled food, drug and alcohol addiction, depression and suicidal ideation. Mama Z was on 10 different prescription drugs in her mid-twenties and suffered through an eating disorder.
Our hearts go out to the millions of people who are struggling to manage their weight and who keep getting let down by fad diets. Through The Essential Oils Diet, our hope and prayer is that these precious souls find "food freedom" and a way of life that is not only sustainable, but enjoyable!
How are people responding to the book?
Of the near 2000 people that we have/are currently walking through a 60-day challenge to get the most out of the book, testimonials are pouring in praising the EOD program for everything from shedding weight to getting off anxiety medication to balancing blood sugar to restoring their marriages. It's truly a life-transformation guide and those that take it seriously are enjoying the fruit of their labor!
What are bioactive compounds and why are they so important?
Bioactive compounds are other nonnutritive substances found in food that are technically not required for survival, but without their regular consumption, our lives would be much less pleasant.
To put things into perspective, The European Journal of Nutrition published an article in 2013 that put it this way:
"Whereas the absence of essential nutrients from the diet results in overt deficiency often times with moderate to severe physiological decrements, the absence of bioactive substances from the diet results in suboptimal health."So, which should we chose? Enjoy "suboptimal health" to shed some quick pounds on a fad diet or follow a time-tested, balanced, proven approach, which will help someone reach their ideal weight and enjoy long-lasting health for years to come?
Bioactives such as essential oils, flavonoids, carotenoids, and polyphenols are all plant chemicals with antioxidant properties that protect your body's cells from damage caused by unstable atoms called free radicals, which cause illness and hasten aging. If your diet is lacking in an array of foods full of different bioactive compounds, you're going to be sick- and you're going to gain weight.
There are thousands of bioactive compounds: more than eight thousand polyphenols alone have been identified to date! A diet replete with bioactive compounds fine-tunes your metabolism so your energy level remains high throughout the day, enabling both mental and physical peak performance.
What are the absolute essential essential oils that we should always have in our pantries?
These are must-haves in your pantries black pepper, cilantro, cinnamon bark, grapefruit, orange, lemon and peppermint.
Not only do essential oils pair wonderfully with your favorite dishes, they add a "culinary dose" of health and wellness to every bite! As a rule of thumb, simply use 1-2 drops of an essential oil in a recipe that calls for 1 teaspoon of an herb or citrus zest.
Good luck. Ends July 14, 2019.
