This week is the perfect time to celebrate all the gifts the earth has given us! One great gift from the earth is dōTERRA’s Cinnamon Bark essential oil. Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses like, adding spice to desserts, entrees, and even hot drinks. That’s why it’s one of my favorite essential oils for the holiday season. (I probably say that with every essential oil)
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses Cinnamon (known as guÌ zhì) in about 10 patent formulas. This means that not only is cinnamon a great essential oil, but this herb has been use for thousands of years to improve immunity, head tension, menstrual support, increase sweeting, joint pain and digestion when used with other Chinese herbs.
Cinnamon Bark is well known for its use as a spice. Did you know when taken internally, supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a healthy immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high. Place 1 drop of dōTerra Cinnamon essential oil in hot water or tea and drink slowly to soothe your irritated throat or add one drop to two ounces of water and gargle for an effective mouth rinse before heading to bed.
Below are some wonderful and creative ways to include dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark in your favorite holiday dishes:
Chinese formula’s that include cinnamon are:
Cinnamon Twig plus Cinnamon Guì Zhī Jiā gui tāng
Cinnamon Twig Decoction
Cinnamon Twig Decoction plus Peony

If you have never tried Acupuncture you might love❤️ making your green drinks like one.
The main question I ask my patients when learning about their eating habits is,
Do you drink greens drinks?🤷🏻♂️ And What do you put in them?🤷🏽♀️
Nutrition and The study of Chinese Herbs are very important parts of the five branches within Chinese Medicine. 🎎
In fact the food we eat have theraputic properties and can benefit the patterns of deficiency that present themselves when the body is out of balance. That’s what this movie Eating You Alive is about.
It blows me away that one Dr. 🧬 in this movie pulls out his perscription pad and instead of writing out a drug he writes out a smoothie formula! That’s exactly what I do and I see even my own families health change rapidly.
Have a look at my vblog about micronizing your fruits 🍎 and 🌽 for a morning drink.

As the season changes to winter, the air becomes filled with unwanted pathogens. Use Eucalyptus essential oil to help with transition into the colder months. Place two drops Eucalyptus oil directly onto the shower floor while you are showering. The steam from the water will create a natural diffuser for the Eucalyptus oil, leaving you with a clear, invigorated feeling. Or try diffusing 2 drops of dōTERRA Eucalyptus with 2 drops of Tangerine and 1 drop of Lime to promote clear airways and to fill your home with a relaxing aroma with the added benefit of uplifting your emotions and clearing your mind.
Do you ever experience anxious feelings during the winter months and holidays? dōTERRA’s new Magnolia Touch oil has a fruity and floral aroma that eases *anxious feelings and promotes relaxation.

Acupuncture is a system that can influence the promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, treatment of various medical conditions.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems including:
Digestive disorders: gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.
Respiratory disorders: Sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma and recurrent chest infection
Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica and osteoarthritis.
Urinary, menstrual and reproductive problems.
Acupuncture is useful resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.
According to Chinese Medicine Qi flows through the body via 14 primary meridians.
To strengthen the flow of Qi or remove blockages in the meridians, a small strike flexible needle is inserted just under the skin at certain specific points along the channel.
Acupuncture leads to real physiologic changes in the body. Numerous studies have shown that inserting needles unto the skin stimulates nerves in the muscles.
The stimulation sends impulse up the spinal cord to a relatively primitive part of the brain known as the limbic system as well as to the mid brain and the pituitary gland.
signals lead to the release of endorphins and monoamines, chemicals that block pain signals in the spinal cord and brain.
In my experience, Chinese Medicine treats the body as a whole and aims to achieve balance and harmony.
I use essential oils, chinese herbs and nutrition therapy to achieve this.

Today, I write from my chair by the pool, excited to share with you how to travel the world in the most luxurious way.
Traveling is in my blood. My dad was military and we lived all over the world. That’s when I had a taste of wanderlust. You too can live this life of luxury and see the world if you are ready to pick up and do YOU.
In the UK a lot of college graduates take a year out to travel and work. It’s just the norm. We hardly hear about work travel opportunities in the States.
What are your options?
Yacht Life: Live on a yacht like those crazies on Below Deck. 😂 Yachting is tough. It’s a small industry and you do have to prove yourself. I got placed through Bluewater Recruitment Agency
Cruiseships: I had a blast as an Acupuncturist on Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam. Crew work long hrs and sometimes have long contracts. However, everyone makes the best of it.
Join The Military: That’s what I did. Primarly for college money. I wanted to get ahead in life. My military career was a scarifice and rewarding at the same time. It paid for medical school and gave me a chance to regroup and plan out what I really wanted to do with my life.
Corporate Flight Attendant: Fly on a private jet with an owner or for a charter company.
Yep, I’m not talking about the commerical kind of flight attendant. I’m talking about the kind that fly on private jets.
You are probably wondering, “Antonika, how did you come up with this idea?” I was reminded of the opportunity.
You are probably think, wow you do everything. Well actually, I have lived a very experienced life. By no means does this mean that I won’t practice Acupuncture. In fact being an Acupuncturist makes the deal sweeter. Because of this addition to my bag of tricks, I can take Acupuncture to the next level and show you places Chinese Medicine can take you.
I believe, when one expands with experience, we see ourself outside the limiting belief of I can’t to the empowering belief of I CAN!
Being a Corprate Flight Attendant isn’t for everyone that’s for sure. There’s a certain kind of flair for elegance, a way of words and a particular way of being. Not to mention, we are talking about a life saving service to the enth degree.
To make my point of view more clear, I convey my story enroute to becoming a Corporate Flight Attendant in my vblog, Beyond and Above Private Jet Flight Attendant Training.
In any case, traveling for fun or traveling to get paid, the most valuable thing you can do for yourself is supplement yourself with dependable nutrition.
Traveling means, changing time zones, layovers, crowded airports and communal areas. No matter where we go we live in toxic enviorments that weighs on our adrenals and slow us down. During training, Long Life Vitality supplements helped me stay focus, alert and feeling nourished.

I know what you are going through. I’ve driven my last boyfriend insane with my moods. (Sorry buddy)
If you are anything like me, you make a scruncy face when someone suggest pills a doctor or a CVs than we are most likely cut from the same cloth. 🙌🏼
Here’s how I get past being moody and flip from limitating feel to more powerful ones.

School is starting your rushing around to get supplies, clothes, preparing after school plans and PTA meetings.
Since schools make lunch for kids, we tend to turn a blind eye to what our kids should be eating
Does preventative care sound like too much work?
A recent study says most people think preventive care is expensive, they don’t know what they need and some people don’t make it a priority.
With a little bit of planing and prior thought we can feel more productive, happier and healthier.
Will you give this a try?
