A Drop of Prevention is Much Better than a pound of Drugs and Medications.

September 17, 2020

True prevention is not waiting for bad things to happen, it's preventing things from happening in the first place."

With cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the rise again and health experts warning of a second wave, let me just recap on how we can use essential oils to boost immunity and support our respiratory system.

Based on research and years of experience with essential oils, I have come up with some basic protocols for treating and preventing a viral infection. To understand the logic of my ways, I’ll first explain what is known about viruses and the mechanisms of how essential oils work to disrupt or destroy the virus.

Simple Massage with Essential Oils

September 5, 2020

Healing touch is the most natural of instincts. We massage the back of our neck when we feel tense. We massage our toe when we stab it.

Essential oils enhance massage and the more regularly we use them the more effective they become. There’s no need for elaborate application systems or complicated massage techniques. We are more likely to use essential oils regularly if we can quickly master safe, simple, convenient, and pleasant ways of using them.

Cassia is rich in biblical history and is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records, the Ebers Papyrus (dating from 16th century BC), an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes.

While its aroma is similar to cinnamon, cassia is chemically and physically quite different.

Dietary Therapy and Herbal Medicine for COVID-19 Prevention: A review and perspective

July 23, 2020

The coronavirus outbreak caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2 (SARS-CoV-2) happened in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019. It was transmitted from humans to humans so quickly that it has become the pandemic responsible for the current  global crisis. In May 2020, as was reported by the WHO, there have been approximately 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-10 and more than 30 thousand deaths worldwide.

Since there is also no effective pharmacologic treatment against COVID-19, determining the drug target requires an understanding of the viral lifecycle. 

 While many clinical trials aimed at discovering a potential effective COVID-19 drug are ongoing, using herbal medicines with well-known antiviral activity might be a complementary SARS-CoV-2 preventive therapy.

Essential Oils for Digestive Problems

Digestive problems often result in symptoms as stomach pain, constipation, gas, cramps, bloating, and diarrhea.

Constipation (Impacted Bowel)

     The principle cause of constipation are inadequate fluid intake and low fiber consumption. Constipation can eventually lead to diverticulosis and diverticulitis, conditions common among older people.

     The reason constipation creates diverticulosis is because the muscles of the colon must strain to move an overly hard stool, which puts excess pressure on the colon. Eventually, weak spots in the colon walls form, creating abnormal pockets called diverticula.

     These pockets can also be created by parasites that burrow and embed in the lining of colon wall, lay eggs there, and leave waste matter that hardens on the colon walls, kinking and twisting the colon unnaturally. It is always wise to consider the possibility of parasites and their treatment when diverticula are present.
