Wow, an Essential Oil that has so many of the Anti-Cancer effects of CBD Oils without the confusion, legal and mind-altering concerns….
You’ve heard me say this so many times, I probably sound like a broken record: Mother Nature has gifted us with so many powerful, non-toxic ways to support a cancer-healing journey whether you are utilizing conventional, integrative or totally natural treatment. We use phytonutrient rich foods, essential oils and other natural substances to boost immune function, lessen inflammation, detoxify the body (and mind/heart/spirit), resolve infection, manage stress and create certain “bio-hacks” that prey on cancer’s vulnerabilities while strengthening the body’s innate ability to heal. I’m always covering aspects of this in my blogs.
Today, we are going to zero back on Copaiba oil’s cancer-fighting role. If you didn’t read part I, I invite and encourage you to do so before reading part II. (PART 1 LINK)Now if you recall from part I, Copaiba oil works on the cannabinoid system – just like CBD oils (ie: cannabis and hemp oils). However, unlike CBD oils that work on receptors that affect the brain and central nervous system, BetaCaroPhyllene, the major chemical constituent of Copaiba, only work on CB2 receptors which impact the endocrine and immune systems but not the brain. So, you don’t need to worry about any mind-altering effects.
It is BetaCaroPhyllene’s effect on these CB2 receptors that provide the evidence-based anti- inflammatory, anti-cancer effects shared in part I. And the higher the concentration of betaCaroPhyllene in an oil, the greater the CB2 activation. And guess what? CBD oil is 35% betaCaroPhyllene while Copaiba is 55%. This means that Copaiba may creatE better results at a significantly lower cost and without legal issues including not worrying about a false positive on a drug test.
So how can you use Copaiba Essential Oil?
I actually have several essential oil protocols addressing different types of cancer and the various issues that come with a cancer diagnosis (or perhaps even contributed to it). Several oils, including, but not limited to, Frankincense and Sandalwood, work synergistically with Copaiba. But if this is the only oil you are using you can:
A common question: Can I take Copaiba (and any) oils internally?
There is a lot of debate about this – with true essential oil experts weighing in on both sides. My amazing mentors weigh in on the side of yes you can – providing you use proven therapeutic grade pure oils (and being organic by itself is not enough to ensure such purity as heavy metals). Your oil bottle should contain a supplement label indicating it is safe or internal use. There are also some oils that should never be ingested and some that must only be used for short times. Copaiba, in my opinion and that of my mentors, can be ingested. In Brazil, copaiba resin is sold in gelatin capsules in pharmacies and is recommended for all types of internal inflammation, to ease stomach ulcers, and even for cancer. You can place several drops of copaiba oil into an empty gelatin capsule and take it internally (with food is best).
The 21-day essential oil protocol I use as part of a cancer healing strategy plan, includes taking certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) copaiba and frankincense oil in a capsule. This is in addition to using copaiba and several other oils on the spine, the feet and directly on past or current tumor sites.
So Where or How can You Get CPTG essential oils?
After working with a few different brands of essential oils, I now use doTERRA oils. I love this company and these oils for multiple reasons. But one very important reason is their 7- part quality control testing – which is so transparent that you can actually go to a website, enter the number found on the bottom of your bottle and then see the test results of the liter from which your bottle was filled.
If you want to pay retail for the oil, you can go to my doTERRA retail site (my.doterra.com/selfcareessentials), search for copaiba oil (a single oil – not a blend) and purchase it. But I don’t think anyone should have to pay retail for essential oils especially if you want to do a whole protocol with them.
Like buying a CostCo membership card, you can purchase a $35.00 doTERRA membership and then have the ability to buy all your therapeutic grade oils online at wholesale – which is 25% off retail. Just contact me at [email protected] and I can set this up for you and/or help you determine if this makes sense for you. And if you choose to enroll for wholesale purchasing ability, I will very gladly throw in a free consult to help you determine how best to use your copaiba – or to help you create a more comprehensive essential oil protocol if that is of interest. The last thing I want is for you to purchase oils and then not use them because you have questions or concerns about doing so.
Here is to empowered, informed health recovery and maintenance, using safe, non-toxic evidence-based self-care measures that supplement the work of your healthcare professionals…
