Supporting Healthy Boundaries for Small Intestine Health

By Jodi Cohen

A woman forming a heart shape with her hands around her belly, symbolizing love and care, possibly related to pregnancy or body positivity.

I have always struggled with boundaries.

My mother raised me to “just be nice” which I interpreted as “prioritize other people’s needs before your own”.  I worked very hard to ensure that everyone’s needs were met – my husband, children, co-workers, boss, friends, acquaintances, in-laws, parents, you name it.

Everyone but myself.

It never occurred to me that this lack of self-nurture could impact my health.  At the recent NTA conference, an intuitive healer sought me out and shared her perspective that many small intestine issues, ranging from food sensitivities, yeast and SIBO to parasites, were really emotional boundary issues.  When you cleaned up the boundaries, the pathogens could no longer be an energetic match.

Her input was particularly interesting and timely as parasites had just presented as a health issue for me.  While I dutifully took my bentonite clay, I also focused on strengthening my boundaries and began smelling and applying our Emotion Balance Small Intestine Support™ blend.  It seemed to do the trick – the parasites have not presented since. Essential Oils for boundaries can help prevent issues that may arise in the small intestine.


Essential Oils for Boundaries

Essential Oils for Boundaries, hand reaching out in forestI know most of us think about these physical issues needing physical cures, but it’s interesting to consider how the emotional piece comes into play.

On the physical level, the small intestine plays a critical role in the digestion process, absorbing and assimilating key nutrients while preventing harmful pathogens and toxins from entering the body.

On an emotional level, the small intestine plays a similarly discerning role with emotions, helping to understand experiences and determine healthy and appropriate relationships and boundaries.

It is also an area where we can hold deep childhood scars of rejection, abandonment or abuse; negative thoughts fueled by feelings of lack of self-worth, low self‐esteem, loneliness, neglect and anxieties about survival and success.

Vibrant Blue Oils Emotion Balance Small Intestine Support™ blend supports the healthy functioning of the small intestine as it sorts and transforms food, feelings and ideas into useful ingredients for the body/mind.  It also helps correct imbalances where you are overly in tune with other’s criticism, feelings or opinions at the expense of your own.
