Oils kept me out of a hospital burn unit and possibly dying..

By January 11, 2011 - 2:36pm

Extreme stress caused me to have, what I believe was a nervous breakdown. All my skin started to erupt evenly and I ballooned up with water. My kidneys were backing off and my liver as well, I suspect. I was terrified of the steroids and antibiotics I would have been put on had I gone to my doctor. I took the confident advice of a homeopath and was treated with essential oils, lots of them. I was in bed for two months, homebound for eight. I couldn't sleep but kept up a good appetite. I was advised to eliminate chlorine contact and got a shower filter. I already had one for drinking water. I went through hell, but didn't die and won't have to worry about the long lasting effects of drug therapy which I know in my gut would have led to an autoimmune disorder down the road. I trusted the person helping me and knew I'd made the right decision by not using synthetic pharmaceutical therapies. I also buy organic food. I'd rather put the money in the food now and not treatment for maladies later.

This is an amazing story of recovery! We really have to start looking at the root cause of the problem and treat it with natural remedies before we get to a physical crisis. It is fantastic that you made such a remarkable return to good health with good food, essential oils and homeopathy. Let's save the pharmaceuticals for only those times when we are really really in a medical crisis - and not use them every day.

This sounds similar to what happened to my 87 yrs old mom, except she had a reaction to an antibiotic. She too was kept out of the hospital with lots of essential oils and essential oil supplements. She can't have any chemicals in any food or drugs. . . everything has to be organic that she eats. If it hadn't been for the YL essential oils she would not be here today. Pharmaceuticals are deadly.

Essential oils, knowns as nature's living energy, are the natural, aromatic violatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The distrinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extrated from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and benefits vast - which makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherpay, massage therapy, emtotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions and much more.
