COPAIBA: THE FIREMAN (words by Courtney Critz) He is ever on the alert, skilled, protective, strong. He goes quickly through the pathways of your cells seeking out the raging flames and pouring on the calming water of his many anti-inflammatory benefits.

Wherever there is "fire" or inflammation in your body, it is a signal of something going on. An arsonist at work (disease, stress) or a drought in your system that needs to be addressed (lack of nutrients). This can also be the result of foods that you are eating such as refined sugar, modern grains, processed dairy, or other foods that don't work well with your body. Over time this compounds until you have fire raging everywhere and you are experiencing pain, digestive issues, skin eruptions, and brain dysfunctions. Eventually this leads to even more serious problems.

People often think that because they don't have digestive problems, they don't have gut inflammation issues. Not at all true. Gut inflammation shows itself as brain fog, pain in joints, emotional instability, and skin eruptions. It's ALL connected.

Eventually, if root issues aren't addressed, your body is spending all of its energy trying to function despite all the fire raging throughout your system.

Everything is burning and you are so busy dealing with the side effects of the fires, you can't ever get to the actual healing to keep the fires from happening.

You're taking medications to treat the pain, the meds increase the inflammation as your gut is damaged, thereby increasing the pain, leading to more medication for the pain…see the cycle?

We have to find a different way.

We have to find alternatives that can help us put out the fires, keep them out, and not do further damage to our systems. Truly quenching them is going to result in lasting relief and recovery. This will mean finding ways to reduce stress, to eat foods that nourish instead of harming us, and repairing the damage that has already been done to our poor guts.

And we need a hero. We need a Fireman.

BACKGROUND Copaiba essential oil is steam distilled from the gum resin of the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree. Native to the Amazon River Basin, these trees can reach 25−40 feet and can live for up to 400 years. Copaiba resin has been used for various purposes throughout the Amazon region since at least the 16th century. It contains a high percentage of the naturally occurring constituent beta-caryophyllene, making it a great choice to add to skin care products or to use for massage. Copaiba Vitality essential oil provides general wellness support when taken internally. Copaiba and Copaiba Vitality are the same essential oil, simply labeled differently.
