The one thing that worked to ease a persistent cough

Recently, my son had the flu. And as everyone is aware, this year's flu season has been bad, very bad. He was sick in bed for 10 days, missed 8 days of school, and was not back to having strength and being himself until we hit the two week mark. It really took a toll on him! One of the symptoms he had was a persistent cough. It was the type of cough where he was literally coughing nonstop, every minute there was a cough. I had tried everything. I bought numerous products at the store, and nothing was helping to bring him some relief.

I posted on my Facebook page to ask friends if they had any suggestions I could try. I was at my wits end trying to help this child get some cough relief, but had run out of options. One of my friends piped up and said she had something that would surely help him. What she had was R.C. Essential Oil. I haven't been one to really use essential oils, so I didn't have a lot of faith in the product. Still, I was willing to give it a shot. She dropped it off at my house, I put two dabs of the oil on his neck, and within minutes the coughing had been cut in half. Within about half an hour it was practically gone. I could not believe it and if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I would have been skeptical with someone telling me this. He ended up going to sleep that night and sleeping right through until 4 am, without one cough! He started to cough at that time, so I got up and put two more drops on his neck. The coughs were gone the rest of the night. I was blown away.

Here I had been spending a lot of money trying various products from the pharmacy, when they didn't do a darn bit of good. Yet this little bottle of oil virtually took it away with just a couple of drops. For the next couple of days we would put a dab on here or there and all was well. He continued to get stronger, get more rest, and recover from that awful flu.

I will always have this essential oil in my house now, because I've seen just how amazing it is for helping someone who has a persistent cough to get some relief. Two thumbs up for R.C. Essential Oil!

Thermography at Holistic Women and Families Natural Health Center




Holistic Women and Families

Natural Health Center

There’s a new diagnostic high-tech tool that specifically measures inflammation. It’s called thermal-imaging or Thermography. This tool creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns-patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. Unlike most diagnostic tests, thermal imaging is not painful, non-invasive, and it’s quick. Also, it makes no contact with your body and emits absolutely NO RADIATION. 

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patterns of the body.

Thermograpy screens can assess several potential health conditions including arthritis, neck and back pain, dental issues, immune dysfunction, breast health and more.

Thermography is particularly beneficial for breast health and has been comprehensively researched for over 30 years. While it is not a replacement for Mammography, it may have many valuable assets including: earlier detection of neovascular patterns, adjust to inconclusive mammograms, improved detection for women with dense breasts or implants, or a reasonable alternative for women who chose not to get mammograms.

Imaging Offered:

  • Breast Imaging: $199 – 30 minutes– includes 8 images of your breast at all angles. Breast imaging is especially important as it detects inflammatory changes that may indicate unhealthy breasts. It is at the inflammatory stage that simple preventive protocols can help clear the inflammation and return your breasts to a healthier state.
  • Women’s Health Screening:$399 – 45 minutes- includes 8 images of breasts PLUS head and neck views to examine for the signs of allergies, sinus problems, causes of headaches, dental and gum diseases, thyroid and carotid artery inflammation (early signs of cardiovascular disease). In addition, the chest and upper back are examined for further signs of developing heart problems and the abdomen to examine liver, spleen, female organs and digestion. The trunk of your body is also examined from head to waist to spot patterns that may travel throughout your body. Did you know that a woman is 10x more likely to experience heart or cardiovascular diseases than breast diseases?
  • Full Body$550 – 1 hour– Imaging is from head to toe.  This images everything that is included in the Women’s Health Screening including a full breast study PLUS arms, hands, legs and feet. A Full Body Scan is very important because of the potential to see so much in the arms and the legs. Blood sugar challenges in the hand and unknown varicose in the legs as well as other disease conditions can be seen. The feet are important to image as heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, weight transfer problems and more can also be seen.

All Patients Receive:

  • A complete set of images
  • A full written interpretation of all images by specially trained medical doctors
  • Complimentary image sets sent to their health professionals
  • Optional “Thermography on Demand” discount program for patients who need to be imaged frequently
