Gluten Doesn’t Have to Be Poison

Was the last meal you had gluten-free? Well, I’m providing you with something that you won’t have to worry about. I’m not about eating gluten-free. I’m about eating hybridization-free and GMO-free. How many of you are willing to go back to nature, instead of just taking something that’s essential out of your diet completely?

How many of you can remember the fat-free fad diet that was popular years ago, which said to take all of the fat out of your diet so that you don’t gain weight? However, the right kind of fat doesn’t cause you to gain weight, true or false? True, absolutely. You need fat to make hormones. That’s really important.

You need gluten because gluten carries essential minerals and amino acids that are crucial to your well-being. People who go on gluten-free diets are likely to find out five years from now that they’re going to have extreme nutritional deficiencies. So we are seeing another fad hit the market—which has been going on for about the last five years. It’s a fad. It’s a money game. Instead of looking for the balance, they look at how they can capitalize on it.

The gluten we’re eating today is very toxic, but we don’t correct a problem by taking out an essential ingredient. We have to first recognize that the ingredient that is toxic is not a natural ingredient; it’s a hybridized, man-structured agent.

So I’m here to share with you a little bit about that. I’ve had a grand journey during the last 20 years as I’ve been searching for the answers.

The Young Living Academy is being expanded to include preschool and high school for the children of Chongon, Ecuador. Students cultivate their own organic garden that contributes to their healthy, organic lunches; participate in soccer, baseball, volleyball, dance, music, chess, and drama clubs; and participate in student council.

Can I sponsor a child at the Young Living Academy?

Yes! By sponsoring a child at the Young Living Academy, you are contributing to his or her personal and academic development. You are helping children and young people become self-reliant, model citizens, and contributors of ideas and projects, with the intention of helping others and society. You will receive a photograph of the child you sponsor, as well as an email address and blog link to communicate regularly with the child. You have the opportunity to be a mentor and have a direct impact on the child’s life.

How do I sponsor a child?

We offer a variety of donation options for the Sponsor a Child program. You can make an annual or monthly donation, which equates to $75/month, which can be completed via credit or debit card. If you are a Young Living Essential Oils member, you can make your monthly $75 donation through a deduction from your commission check. [Click here to view donation options.]

Where do the children I am sponsoring live?

In Chongon, Ecuador, about 30 km outside of Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest and most populous city.
