Because I am allergic to many pharmaceuticals I have been searching for an alternative form a healing for a long time. I have a great deal of respect for my son’s eye doctor in Santa Fe, NM so when Dr. Sam Berne offered certification classes in essential oils, I signed up.
Evidence and recorded history have both shown that Egyptians used aromatic oils as early as 4500 B.C.E. Pharaohs had their own special blends for meditation, love, war and so on.
The use of aromatic oils was first recorded in China between 2697-2597 B.C.E during the reign of Huang Ti, the legendary Yellow Emperor. His famous book “The Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine” contains uses for several aromatics and is still considered a useful classic by practitioners of eastern medicine today.
India, Rome, Persia, all have recorded uses of essential oils in healing and in Europe during the Spanish influenza there were no reported deaths of hospital personnel, which was credited to the use of lavender.
Essential oils have been called “the life blood of a plant.” They circulate through plant tissues and pass through cell walls, carrying nutrition into cells and carrying waste products out.
When essential oils are applied to people, they do the same thing, carrying oxygen into cells and carrying waste products out. In fact, essential oils are one of nature’s best body cleansers. They can cleanse our cellular receptor sites of pharmaceutical drugs, petrochemicals, and other disruptors of intercellular communication. They can also chelate heavy metals and other toxins, helping to remove and flush them through the liver, colon, sweat, lungs, and kidneys. They can also increase our ability to absorb vitamins and other nutrients.
Essential Oils Possess Homeostatic Intelligence!
Homeostasis is that state where every vital biological process within a living organism is functioning as it should. It is a state of perfect wellness. Essential oils always work toward restoring and maintaining balance and homeostasis, first in the plants who create them, and then in the humans who apply them.
To say that an essential oil works toward balance and homeostasis means that the same oil can work in different directions depending on the needs of the plant or person. Oregano oil (Origanum vulgare) will kill hostile microbes while nurturing those that are friendly. Angelica oil (Angelica archangelica) can stimulate a uterus to contract or to relax depending on the need. Myrtle oil (Myrtus communis) is an adaptigen that can stimulate an increase or a decrease in thyroid activity depending on a person’s condition. Pharmaceutical drugs are incapable of such intelligent discriminations and act only in preprogrammed directions.
My husband, a Stanford trained orthopedic surgeon with a masters in plant biology from Stanford went with me to the certification classes. I was shocked at how he positively responded to this information and so delighted that he agrees that essential oils do have an important function in the health matrix.
