Essential Oils to Boost the Immune System
We know that when we take care of ourselves through diet and exercise that our body systems receive what they need to take better care of us. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true: when we don’t eat well and exercise, we limit our body’s capacity. It is a never-ending cycle, especially when it comes to our immune systems. The good news for us lies in an additional option—many different essential oils can help play a role in boosting and supporting your immune system.*
When we talk about the immune system, we are actually talking about a complicated network of organs and cells. Several organs and cells make up the immune system, including your lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, lymphocytes (white blood cells known as B- and T-cells), the thymus, and leukocytes (another type of white blood cell). Each piece works together to defend and protect the body.
To keep each element of your immune system on track, doTERRA offers an Immune Support Kit. Along with the probiotic supplement PB Assist®+, this kit includes all of the most popular doTERRA essential oils known to help protect your body from environmental and other threats.
