ESSENTIAL OILS AND THE FDA by Cathy D. Slaght
In the last 3 years Google searches for essential oils have tripled. Maybe that's because our present system doesn't seem to be meeting our needs. The numbers are out there, and they don't look good. Just one example- so many are now being diagnosed with diabetes that experts say by 2026 we won't have any money in our health care system for anything else.
As disease escalates, so does the cost of health care. While agencies like the FDA want us to rely on the mainstream- sometimes even making it a crime not to- costs to do so can be prohibitive. Just this week a pharmaceutical company raised the price of just one drug from $13.50 to $750.00
The FDA has been particularly attentive to the alternative health industry. I get it. They don't want anyone misled or harmed by "snake oil salesmen." Lately they've focused their attention on the essential oil industry.
Don't make claims, they say.
And they're right.
Nothing- alternative or mainstream - can "heal" any disease.
We self heal. That's how our operating system was designed. The doctor or health practitioner may guide, and often we need that guidance, but one's own energy system is what does the healing.
Think about it. If you get a cut, do you live out the rest of your life with that cut? Of course not. Your body heals it. Day by day you watch it knit up. It's all based on voltage- the energy of your "operating system". The cut may take longer to heal if your energy, or voltage, is low.
LOW VOLTAGE is what's making us sick, depressed, apathetic, obese etc. It's keeping us stressed in other areas, too, like relationships, finances, even the very joy of being alive is diminished when voltage is low. It's as if whatever "turns on the lights" isn't working.
Much of what controls voltage goes on beneath the surface. We can only tell by the quality of our life. How we feel, whether or not we're experiencing lack, and so on.
Fortunately we have a great deal of control- eating whole foods, for example, raises voltage. Positive words, thoughts, and actions raise voltage. The company you keep, the music you listen to, the tv shows you watch- you know this - all help determine voltage.
To think you can splash on some essential oils, get a daily energy clearing, or take a bunch of prescription meds to "make you well" - well, we could be missing the mark. These things don't do it. You do.
So let's not bash ANYTHING- the FDA, pharmaceutical companies, alternative products etc. That serves no purpose, only lowers voltage even further. All these things have the potential to contribute to our well being.
But WE heal ourselves, based on personal voltage.
Of course those who measure frequency say essential oils seem to raise voltage. Drugs, they say, seem to lower it. Go figure.
