Over 70% of world population is depending on holistic approach to health and, in the US, the number of people who would prefer natural approach to a lifestyle has been tripled over the last few decades.
Are you looking for a naturally effective medicine to your condition? Would you rather take medicines that offer no side effects or addictions? Would you like to know how to build an immune system and also help yourself heal at the same time?
Aromatherapy is not widely known or used in the US; however, it has been proven to be one of the most effective alternative treatments, which has a long history. Essential oils were the mankind’s first medicine and even the Bible has 188 references to essential oils. In Europe, aromatherapy is covered by insurance in some countries. You may also find its own department in some hospitals in Asia.
Aromatherapy has three major applications; aromatic, topical, and internal. Essential oils are used in all applications and they are very small in molecular size that they can almost immediately penetrate the skin.
What are essential oils? They are aromatic compounds, natural extracts, from various parts of the plants. They are usually steam distilled, very concentrated, and know to be at least 70 times more powerful than herbal medicines.
So, how do essential oils affect us? Aromatic constituents, called sesquiterpenes, found in essential oils are known to be able to pass the blood-brain barrier, which is the cell membrane between the blood and the brain. This barrier protects brain cells from damaging substances to reach the brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid. This means, essential oils would directly work on the cells. On the other hand, there are no man-made chemical substances found to go through the barrier.
According to National Institute on Drug Abuse, “the biggest and fastest growing part of America’s drug problem is prescription drug abuse.” Essential oils offer the significant health benefits with no side effects or addictions.
There are so many essential oils available on the market and you may wonder which one to get. Here is a tip: get a supplement-registered essential oil. Make sure a bottle says “for internal/ dietary use” or I would suggest you not to even open it because if it is not safe to drink, it is not safe to use at all.
I would like to invite you to take a look at a bright side of healthcare. A lifestyle is the cause of the majority of the diseases and aromatherapy would bring you a positive lifestyle to your health.
