Integrating Essential Oils for More Effective Treatments

Recently, an article in Futurity Magazine, titled "Essential Oils Might be the New Antibiotics" cited some amazing studies about oils commonly used in our practice.  One study in Italy found that a "combination of thyme and clove essential oils was just as effective in treating bacterial vaginosis as the usual antibiotic treatment."  Although there are also Chinese herbal medicines to treat this effectively, adding these two oils to the repertoire is easy and economical.  Those who are inclined (yours truly notwithstanding) may choose to make their own suppositories and keep on hand if they suffer from frequent infections.  

Many infections - bacterial and viral - recur more frequently and become chronic when treated repeatedly with antibiotics.  That's not even taking into consideration the creation of resistant strains worldwide through the use - and misuse - of these medications.  Our hospitals and long-term-care facilities are plagued with outbreaks of staph and similar infections, with no other recourse but to treat with stronger and longer doses of antibiotics.

But take a look at the findings of a recent study in the U.S. ... it showed that staph-infected wounds healed faster when they were treated with vapors of tea-tree oil than with conventional methods. And here is a quote directly from the National Institutes of Health: "In vitro studies show that tea tree oil is capable of killing methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a laboratory setting."  Seems like something we should pursue vigorously.  Of course plant components cannot be patented - to the dismay of Merck, Pfizer, et al - and therefore cannot be capitalized upon by big pharma.  I suppose that's why DoTERRA and similar essential oil companies are doing so well amongst the masses.  Keepin' it grass roots, folks.

A word of advice though.  Essential oils are not free of side-effects, and should be applied responsibly, with a healthy dose of respect.  Make sure to research your oils and their application thoroughly - and better yet, get the advice of a licensed practitioner.

One study in Italy found that a blend of thyme and clove vital oils was pretty much as powerful in regarding bacterial vaginosis as the typical anti-infection treatment. Thanks!

That allows for a lot of Google Ad - Sense revenue, but also avoids the possibility of losing customers to other Web sites right before they make a purchase. Things changed when Cialis made its appearance in the market. "This sense of entitlement I don't understand because I wasn't raised that way.

At last count, there have been over 350 million users on Facebook which number is continuing to grow. By advertising with Facebook, you're not just simply there to obtain giant variety of fans 'liking' your individual FB page, but to generate a group of people that can come to be buyers. You can try changing precisely the headline, which is often a good suggestion, then put into service.

I really enjoy these! That is now the 3rd one I've ordered. One for home, one towards the cabin and my aunty was jealous she got me to buy one for her too. My 5lb chihuahua loves it and possesses plenty of room. He goes in all by himself for taking little naps. Highly strongly recommended.

The reason I was letting this guy compliment me and be overly nice to me is because it did make me feel like somebody actually cared and I felt like me and my fiancé weren't communicating with each other like we should have been.
