Tecopia Essentia - Liposomals ~ Microemulsion ~ Nanoemulsion ~Herbal Wash
Updated May 20th, 2016
limited availability from www.greenclays.com
This is an advanced blend of therapeutic grade essential oils in liposomal form, made in an aqueous base of distilled water and 10 PPM electrically isolated silver (EIS) aka colloidal silver. This one of a kind product can be used as a micro-emulsion herbal wash or as a true liposomal delivery system for the essential oil and herbs in the formulation.
This formulation is made with the highest grade phosphatidylcholine (phospholipids) with a fatty acid ratio of 4:1, Omega 6 to Omega 3, which makes it completely balanced for human use. The essential oils are encapsulated within spherical lipid "particles" which vastly improves bioavailability (see reference section).
The liposomal form of essential oils already known for their antimicrobial activity have been scientifically shown to be equally or more effective as their non-LEO counterpart. The difference is that in liposomal form, they can reach deeper and farther into the body. Practically speaking, the lipid encapsulation makes the non-water and non-fat soluble oil both water and fat soluble. When the fat breaks down through biochemical processes in the body, the essential oil is liberated.
In essence, these types of formulations are true colloids, even though the fat "particles" aren't really solid particles in the physical sense. This particular formulation is a colloid that is about 95-99% dispersed stable. It is a concentrate, and should not be used without dilution.
Can such a formula be made as a 100% stable colloid? Absolutely, and with ease. However, this cannot be done while at the same time delivering a sufficient therapeutic dose, unless one desires to drink a huge amount of LEOs at a time!
Can such a product be made in a gel-like substance, like some of the liposomal formulations on the market? Absolutely. However, this is counter-productive. In order for the LEOs to be extremely effective, complete separation of the lipids must occur. When the fat agglomerates or clumps, the delivery system fails.
This point is so important it merits repeating over and over again: Complete dispersion must be achieved in order to harness the awesome power of the liposomal delivery system. Furthermore, It needs to be taken with PLENTY of water taken right before use. The more water (within common sense reason) consumed prior to use, the better. This helps to prevent damage to the liposomes that would otherwise be caused by stomach acid. The more water used prior to consumption, the less stomach acid the body will produce in time to damage the liposomes, and the more bioavailable the LEOs will become!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Each ounce of concentrate contains the direct equivalent of 15 drops of essential oil.
Liposomal essential oils: First step is to begin the oil separation process
How to Use for Chronic Infections
This protocol was developed to assist those dealing with advanced chronic infections; those who, in essence, are already doing everything else right as far as diet and lifestyle goes. it is for individuals with deeply seated LYME, SIBO, fungus, mold and other conditions that have persistently resisted other forms of treatment.
1. First thing in the morning, take 1 tsp of edible clay in 500 ml. of water, preferably mixed the night before. If desired, take a second dose later in the evening. It is always wise to have some clay water handy in the event one experiences an upset stomach or intestinal discomfort. Simply drink a small amount of clay water at the first sign of symptoms.
2. While using this product, it is highly advised to use a quality probiotic twice to three times daily. This can include fermented cabbage juice, kimchi, Dr. Ohara's professional probiotics. High quality soil based organisms may also be used.
3. Always drink at least one eight ounce glass of water just before consuming the LEOs.
4. Always dilute the concentrate properly before use.
5. Always pause use for three days when any suspected side effect occurs. Err on the safe side. The secret to using any antimicrobial herbal formulation is allowing the body to successfully adapt to use. Ignoring this principle will result in developing an immune system sensitivity, which will prevent a person from tolerating any type of exposure whatsoever. Do not make this mistake. Treating this protocol like a sprint rather than a marathon will yield poor results. So many aromatherapists have developed EO intolerances from over-exposure, and this only from topical or inhalation use.
6. If the same side effects recur, reduce dosage. This is not a "no pain no gain" type of protocol. You want the body to completely adapt to use so that you can develop a keen awareness of the effects. You can hurt yourself misusing essential oil formulations!
7. When first using or increasing the dosage, do not drive or operate heavy machinery. Some essential oils have psychoactive properties that the body may need to adjust to. Usually, the body will quickly adapt.
Starting Out: Testing Tolerance
Purchase/acquire a single 16 ounce bottle of the LEOs. This will allow you enough product to test the body's initial tolerance and pursue the first round.
Remember to always drink at least eight ounces of water before consuming.
Drink about 20 drops (1 ml) of the LEOs mixed well into four ounces (~120 ml) of water, three times during the day. Consumption should not cause stomach upset/discomfort or other severe side effects. If you feel comfortable with use, go to the instructions for Round 1 and Round 2.
If not, pause for three days and try again. If symptoms keep recurring after three attempts, reduce dosage by half. Repeat the process again. Keep doing this until you reach a dosage level that does not produce the symptoms. If you get down to one drop in 4 ounces of water, and this still causes issues, you probably already have a developed sensitivity that may prevent you from using this product.
Once you have successfully adjusted to the reduced dosage, slowly increase the dosage back up by adding one more drop per day. If you've had problems with the 20 drop test, go slow. Use a strategy such as three days on at a stable dose, four days off. Then increase by another drop. Make sure your body is adapting well to use.
Keep this process up until you have reached the minimum therapeutic dose as stated in Round 1 below. The, proceed with added care, common sense, and caution.
For example, I know of one individual that took THREE YEARS to adjust to a tablespoonful of raw coconut oil. That's three years of concerted effort to make fundamental changes in the body's metabolic processes!
1st & 2nd Round
Dosage: 1/4 ounce (7-8 ml) of LEOs in four ounces (~120 ml) of water, twice to three times daily for ten days. Three times daily is ideal for best results.
After any ten day round, always pause for at least three to five days before resuming.
This will consume about 8 ounces out of the 16 ounces bottle. Now is the time to decide if you want to do the whole series, which is five rounds. If so, please make plans to acquire the 4-pack of LEOs.
For the second round repeat the usage schedule for the first round.
Dosage: 2/3 ounce (19-20 ml) of LEOs in four ounces (~120 ml) of water, twice to three times daily for ten days. Three times daily is ideal for best results. At this dosage, there is the direct equivalent of ten drops of essential oil per dose.
After the ten days, pause 5-7 days before resuming.
You will have used 20 ounces of LEOs for this ten day round.
Dosage: One ounce (29-30 ml) of LEOs in four ounces (~120 ml) of water, twice to three times daily for ten days. Three times daily is ideal for best results. At this dose level, there is the direct equivalent of 15 drops of essential oil per dose.
After the ten days, pause 5-7 days.
You will have used 30 ounces of LEOs for this ten day round.
At this point, you will have used a total of 50 ounces of the 64 ounces included in the 4-pack.
Dosage: 1.5 ounces (44-45 ml) of LEOs in four ounces (~120 ml) of water, twice daily, for five days (or, while supplies last, up to 10 days).
This completes one series of treatments!
If you have experienced good results from the series, Rounds 4/5 may be repeated at your and your healthcare professional's discretion, with breaks in between use.
The next step: Combine the essential oils with phospholipids and begin the encapsulation process
Notice that the diluted LEOs create a cloudy water (first image); tyndall effect reveals nano-sized "particles"
dispersed throughout the solution, even though there are a few larger lipids floating on top of the water,
visible only dueto the camera flash .
Are these essential oils safe to use?
There are individuals who will not be able to tolerate, and who should never use essential oils internally. Use these and other essential oils at your own risk.
Individuals who choose to use essential oils internally should use them in a careful manner, always stopping use at the very first sign of side effects. If used with proper care, and as directed, the body will adapt to their use without causing any severe side effects.
Will this cure my condition?
The goal of using natural and alternative therapies is to assist the body's own innate healing ability. This is one of many tools to help the body with its recovery process, it is not a cure for any disease.
What does this taste like?
These liposomal essential oils taste like very cheap perfume, although the highest quality ingredients possible are used.
Can I add sweetener or add these to my juices/smoothies?
Absolutely not! If taste concerns are an issue for you, this treatment protocol may not be the right choice for where you are at currently. Once the body adjusts to use, usually after one or two series, the tongue's taste buds will actually start to change, reducing or eliminating the unpleasantness of the taste.
The answer to any question you might have about modifying this protocol is NO, especially if you have to ask us the question!
Can I use my other antimicrobials while using LEOs?
We recommend NOT doing so for the first series. However, if you continue to do further rounds of LEOs once the body is well adjusted to use, you can do so, provided that you have the ability to listen carefully to how the body responds.
Is there a lot of garlic and cayenne in this formulation?
No. Both garlic and cayenne can be a stomach irritant. Tolerance to each is very individual, so there is just enough garlic in the blend to harness the polyphenols, and just enough cayenne in the blend to act as a circulatory system aid.
Since complete dispersion in water is so important, wouldn't it be even better to mix my LEO dose in a full liter of water, and then drink that?
What a great idea! Yes, this would certainly be a good strategy. However, most people probably won't enjoy drinking a liter of water that tastes like perfume!
Can I add LEOs to clay?
You can make a clay magma using these LEOs for special use, but doing so is outside of the realm of this protocol.
Can I make my own Liposomal Essential Oils?
Yes, absolutely. If you purchase two four packs, we will give you a free .pdf e-book on making your own formulations... when it becomes available. It is still expensive to make, since high-grade essential oils are expensive to purchase.
I've read that home-made liposomal formulations aren't really liposomal. Is this true?
Be careful what you believe when reading information by companies that want to sell you high priced products. Yes, it is true that making true liposomal formulations using the old school home brew method can result in an inferior product. However, there are little secrets to be used to ensure the highest possible quality using newer methods. This includes but it is not limited to utilizing very high quality phospholipids. There are also new ways to encourage the formation of stable liposomes. Liposomal home brew has come a long way since Brooks Bradley of the Harbourne Research Foundation published the first widely used formula to produce liposomal vitamin C!
In order to make the highest quality "laboratory grade" liposomes, chemical processing is required; this is the freeze and thaw method. We prefer to keep things completely natural, and the trade off is not as clinically significant as some would want you to believe.
Furthermore, some of these companies using very sophisticated and expensive production methods have been shown to produce products that are not actually very effective in the body. This is due to the fact that the companies neglect to tell their customers that in order for the liposomes to be actually effective int the body, you MUST ensure adequate separation of the lipids. Those "big thick gels" tend to clump and stay clumped... or they get broken down by stomach acid, which of course destroys the liposomes.
So, be wise, and heed the usage advice in this document. Large amounts of water and dilution of the product at the time of use help to make a good product properly effective in the body.
I've read that it might be possible that processing the phospholipids can denature or degrade them. Is this true?
This may or may not be true for cheaper, dried phospholipids. The processes we use do not denature or degrade the phospholipids we use. As far as temperature goes, there is a pretty stable window between (this is our current understanding) 25 and 45 degrees Celsius. As you approach the 45 degree mark, the liposomes become more and more permeable. This means, to a point, that using just a touch of uniform heat can improve the encapsulation process, and this can be done without "hurting" the phospholipids or the essential oils. We are very careful with processing, which is one reason why we consider our formulation artisan.
One of the most amazing benefits of learning how to use liposomal essential oils is the fact that, essentially, one is taking a non-water soluble oil, and making it water soluble... and this is done by utilizing highly bioavailable fat (liposomes). This is a "game changer" methodology for harnessing the extraordinary properties of essential oils.
This also means that very sensitive individuals can-- if they work hard and carefully-- start by taking one drop of LEO in a full glass of water, if necessary. The LEO will disperse throughout the whole glass of water, reducing the concentration via dilution. There is a big debate among different schools of herbology regarding sensitivity issues. Some herbalists believe that individuals who react to a healing ingredient are doing so because it is actually working. Others believe that these intolerances are simply a limitation of individual constitution. Aside from genetic issues, the first school of thought is, in my opinion, most often correct.
Using therapeutic doses of LEOs is not an easy task for some individuals. However, the body has developed the innate capability to adjust to the whole class of bitter herbs used as antimicrobial agents. This is a process for most people in modern society. The whole idea of this program is to allow the body to effortlessly utilize these biochemicals to in-act changes in the body, and more importantly, in how the body functions.
It is not a "white knuckle" program where individuals are suppressing the urge to vomit. The idea is to go slow if necessary. Fighting tough chronic conditions is a marathon and not a sprint. THE FIRST RULE IS TO DO NO HARM!
Ultimately, having adjusted to use, the body will start to feel better when taking them, and then also start to feel better once stopping. Keep in mind that essential oils are not food, they have not been developed to be a regular part of one's diet.
The single reason we have introduced this article, protocol, and product: There is an awe-inspiring and untapped potential in the exploration of liposomal essential oils used safely to assist the body's innate healing ability.
While actively using the LEOs, you can leave them out of the refrigerator, which reduces the tendency of the lipids to clump. When pausing for any reason, you can return the bottles to the fridge for storage. Store the bottles in the fridge while not in use.
Observations to Date
1. Once therapeutic dose levels are reached, the LEO formulation appears to knock down candida growth in the blood stream very rapidly (resolution of white tongue issue).
2. Therapeutic doses of the LEOs appear to act to stimulate/normalize HCL production in the stomach.
3. Therapeutic doses of the LEOs appear to help clear sinus infections most likely caused by mold exposure.
