I think you'll quickly see in the first few pages why I believe this is not only the best book I've ever written, but also the most comprehensive and useful book on essential oils you will ever find.
Without further ado, here isEssential Oils: Ancient Medicine.
We hope this book will become the guide for anyone looking to protect and improve their health through the use of essential oils, but we also wrote it for a few specific groups. First, we believeEssential Oils: Ancient Medicinecan become a powerful resource for physicians and naturopaths looking to provide their patients and clients with thebest possible improvement in their health.
Second, mothers will be the group of people who will benefit most from reading this book. We know that mothers are dedicated warriors who are responsible not only for their own health but also for the health of their entire family. From children to pets to aging parents, they serve constantly. If we could get a copy of this book in the hands of every mother in America, the health of our entire nation would be radically changed.
Essential oils are not a fad - they have a history going back thousands of years. They were used in Biblical medicine, Egyptian medicine, Chinese medicine and Greek medicine - and are still used around the world today. In fact, they are even more popular in many other parts of the world than in the US.
Thankfully, America is now experiencing an essential oil revolution, and their use is growing in popularity by the day. So let's celebrate the fact that essential oils are becoming so popular! But it has to stay that way - and for that you need easily accessible information that is easy to understand and implement.
We designed this book to give you clear and simple ways to use essential oils to benefit both your health and the health of your family every day. Our recommendations are backed by history and science. There are now thousands of research studies proving that essential oils are powerful natural healing agents and amazing ingredients for personal care and cleaning products - and we used a large portion of that research in writing this book.
Ultimately, we want you to use this book to achieve three things in your life:
- Find out what essential oils are and why they are so powerful.
- To feel empowered to use essential oils both safely and effectively to support your health and the health of your family.
- Be equipped with this trusted guide you can turn to for using essential oils in your daily life - from boo-boos and stuffy noses to chemical-free personal care and household items and natural pet care.
So many of the diseases we see today are due to high levels of toxicity in our bodies; chemical toxins that have become insidious invaders of our daily lives through the foods we eat, the medicines we take, the products we use, and even the water we drink.
Part of our shared mission is to teach people how to live free from toxins and drugs. Essential oils can be used as a natural replacement for some medications, traditional personal care products, body products, and household cleaning products. Essential oils can be used in so many ways that their only real limit is a lack of knowledge about how to use them safely and properly - and that's what this book aims to teach you.
With the right tools in your arsenal, you and your family can experience a complete transformation of the medicine cabinet - and life.
If you're ready to experience more energy, better health, balanced hormones, improved digestion, and an overall higher quality of life, then you've found the right resource at the right time. We want to give you everything you need to know about essential oils and everything you need to use them effectively in one place.
We hope this book will provide you with the answers you have been looking for.
CHAPTER 1: FROM THE THIRD DAY TO MODERN AGE [Excerpt]
After chatting one day, the three of us found that our mornings begin the same way—with prayer, Bible reading, and meditation (often while applying or diffusing frankincense oil). In the course of our Bible study of creation, it dawned on us that essential oils from plants have been available to mankind from the beginning. More specifically according to Genesis 1:11-13:
Then God said, "Let the land bring forth vegetation: seed-bearing plants, and trees on the land, bearing fruit with seed in them, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seeds according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seeds according to their kind. And god saw, that it was good. And evening came, and morning came—the third day.
Because essential oils are derived from plants, we realized that on the third day of creation, even before God breathed life into Adam and long before sin, sickness, and death became a reality, God created all the supportive tools and treatments that everyone on this earth needs would proDiseases, ailments, aches and pains and literally put them at our fingertips.
Now let's fast forward to our use of these tools and treatments in the present day. When Jordan was battling cancer in 2008, there was no shortage of people who believed his best shot at beating the disease was one of conventional medicine's answers to cancer treatment.
But he persisted in his quest to fight cancer naturally, and thanks to prayer, purification, a strict diet, a special intake of supplements, and his use of essential oils, he beat the diagnosis — and he came out healthier cancer out he was before.
dr Josh can relate to that win. After his mother underwent chemotherapy for her first breast cancer, she felt sicker after being declared "cancer-free" than she had felt while battling the disease. When the Ax family decided to fight their second cancer diagnosis through alternative treatments and lifestyle changes, his mother emerged healthier than she had ever been in her life. Unfortunately, Ty's mom and dad never got that second chance.
We don't know a single person who hasn't lost a friend or loved one to cancer or some other form of illness. You may be dealing with a diagnosis right now, and if so, you're certainly not alone. According to the American Cancer Society, men have a 1 in 2 chance of getting cancer in their lifetime, and 1 in 3 women will fight some form of cancer.
Whether you picked up this book in search of natural remedies for your ailments or as a general reference, this is an exciting time. Essential oils can transform your life, and together we can prevent disease and change the way the world deals with disease. Armed with the right information, we can spread the word and change the status quo.
We believe this is possible because the information in this book is backed by the latest scientific research, historical documentation, and Bible wisdom. It's time to change the way we see disease; It's time to change the products we put in our homes and put in our bodies.
This is a critical situation and we are facing serious problems worldwide today. Conventional treatments for both major and minor illnesses kill people. For example, diabetic medications cause vitamin B12 deficiency and permanent nerve damage. Drugs for depression cause widespread addiction, and the consequences of withdrawal are seizures and death. Drugs for high blood pressure cause male impotence and heart disease due to the vitamin and mineral deficiencies they cause. Cholesterol-lowering drugs cause organ damage, memory loss, and sexual dysfunction.
This is just a brief list of prescription drug side effects and does not include a discussion of the hundreds of overprescribed drugs that have fueled a severe worldwide addiction epidemic.
It also doesn't include the myriad over-the-counter (OTC) drugs people use every day, like acetaminophen, which has been linked to kidney disease and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
According to an article published by the Harvard School of Public Health, there are nearly 2 million hospital admissions and 128,000 deaths from properly prescribed drugs each year. This makes prescription drugs a major health risk and ranks fourth among the leading causes of death. (1) Conversely, how many reported deaths are due to vitamins, dietary supplementsand essential oils per year? ZERO.
The solution to these serious and significant side effects is not more medication. Modern medicine aims to treat the symptoms of the disease and not the cause of the problem. It's like getting a nail stuck in your car tire and instead of removing the nail, you simply inflate the tire with more air - without ever removing the nail. If you don't address the source of the problem (the nail), no matter how many times you patch it and expect it to work properly, the air will continue to leak out and eventually lead to other problems.
The solution to this problem lies directly in nature. We need to remove as many toxins from our lives as possible (that attack us in our food, in our water, in our personal care and cleaning products, and in our air) and replace traditional medicines and products with innovations specially designed by the great Physician to heal, not cause further damage.
There has never been a more critical time to act than now. Over 1,500 people die from cancer every day, and over 600,000 people will die from heart disease this year. And for the rest of us, quality of life is deteriorating thanks to poor diet and lifestyle, including our dependence on conventional medicines.
You don't have to wait for widespread mentality and policy changes to act. We believe that today - right now - you can start making a difference with small but concrete actions.
For example, if you want to fight high blood pressure, start with a combination of lavender, ylang ylang, and frankincense. Diffuse Cinnamon Oil, Grapefruit Oil and Ginger Oil at your desk at work to support blood sugar management. In clinical studies, essential oils have been shown to boost mood, so inhale some bergamot, lavender, and Roman chamomile to help fight depression. (2,3,4)
The world of medicine offers many great wonders, and modern medicine and diagnostics are amazing on many levels. But the system is broken, largely due to the prevalence of drugs touted as cures.
Before the age of modern medicine, people didn't rely on big pharmaceutical companies for patch cures, which often cause more problems than they treat. Instead, they relied on natural remedies derived from plants to prevent and treat disease. They relied on traditional herbal remedies such asessential Öle.
The funny thing about the word "traditional" is that people use it today to refer to medical practices that have only been around for 100 years or less. medics andothers then toss essential oils into the “alternative” category, though nothing could be further from the truth. It is herbal remedies and essential oils that are "traditional" in that they have been around since the third day of creation!
We believe in using the "traditional" treatments - in other words, those that come from the earth. It's easy for people today to dismiss herbs, spices, and essential oils as "just plants," and that's because we've been conditioned to believe that "medicine" must come from a laboratory.
But we believe that God's laboratory is vastly superior to those created by man, and that's why you're holding this book in your hands right now.
When you use God's Pharmacy to treat your ailments and prevent them, the treatment and healing options are far more diverse, the side effects are less terrifying, and the results last longer.
To better understand the inherent power and beautiful simplicity of God's pharmacy, let's travel back in time to find out how essential essential oils were once before the earth was littered with pharmacies around every corner...
