In a world where there always seems to be
a “New and Improved”, we have lost sight of the tried and true. Essential oils have been used throughout history
as prevention and healing remedies, they are mentioned 188 times in the Bible. Essential oils can be absorbed by the human
body in a variety of ways. The vapors, once inhaled, can trigger neurochemical release in the brain via receptors in the nose.
Many people are familiar with the phenomenon of a sudden awareness of past memories after detecting a particular smell or
taste. Although these memories can be buried deep in the subconscious, they suddenly flood into view. Of all the five senses,
smell has the strongest link into the subconscious. The blood can also absorb vapors once it gets into the lungs. Once in
the bloodstream, it can circulate quickly to all the organs of the body, not just the brain.
are as many tragedies in modern medicine as there are miracles; we all know someone living on pills. We are not curing anything;
we hide the symptoms. The pharmaceutical companies do not want to cure us, not much profit in that, and many lives are lost
in the process. You don’t have to be dead to fit in the category of “lost lives”; look at the clinics that
sprang to life to treat heroin addicts and are now almost solely treating Oxy Contin addicts.
are only giving us what they say we are demanding, not that the million dollar commercials that we are bombarded with don’t
influence us. We have put too much trust in people that must keep the shareholders happy, and we assume they have our best
interest at heart. I believe that is asking too much of them and too little of ourselves.
you want to change your life, you first have to change your mind. We put our spiritual lives in the hands of God, and our
physical lives in the hands of a CEO? It just does not sound right, does it?
I am not saying there is not a place for modern medicine; I am
saying we need to take a look at the natural medicines and UNDERSTAND that the FDA created laws that gave Pharmaceutical Company’s
the monopoly. Essential Oils were here centuries before the FDA, and they will exist long after the “pill era”.

Is American Medicine Working?
At 14 percent of the Gross National Product, health
care spending reached $1.6 trillion in 2003. Considering this enormous expenditure, we should have the best medicine in the
world. We should be reversing disease, preventing disease, and doing minimal harm. However, careful and objective review shows
the opposite. Because of the extraordinary narrow context of medical technology through which contemporary medicine examines
the human condition, we are completely missing the full picture.
Medicine is not taking into consideration the following monumentally important aspects
of a healthy human organism: (a) stress and how it adversely affects the immune system and life processes; (b) insufficient
exercise; (c) excessive caloric intake; (d) highly-processed and denatured foods grown in denatured and chemically-damaged
soil; and (e) exposure to tens of thousands of environmental toxins. Instead of minimizing these disease-causing factors,
we actually cause more illness through medical technology, diagnostic testing, overuse of medical and surgical procedures,
and overuse of pharmaceutical drugs. The huge disservice of this therapeutic strategy is the result of little effort or money
being appropriated for preventing disease.
Medicating Our Feelings
We only need to look at the side effects of antidepressant drugs, which give hope to a depressed population. Patients
seeking a more joyful existence and relief from worry, stress and anxiety, fall victim to the messages blatantly displayed
on TV and billboards. Often, instead of relief, they also fall victim to the side effects of antidepressant medication.
Also, a whole generation of antidepressant users has resulted from young
people growing up on Ritalin. Medicating youth and modifying their emotions must have some impact on how they learn to deal
with their feelings. They learn to equate coping with drugs and not their inner resources. As adults, these medicated youth
reach for alcohol, drugs, or even street drugs, to cope. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, "Ritalin
acts much like cocaine." Today’s marketing of mood-modifying drugs, such as Prozac or Zoloft, makes them not only
socially acceptable but almost a necessity in today’s stressful world.
It is time to look to the past to help insure the future.
