Essential Oils May Heal Hospital-contracted Infections & Prevent Deaths (Part 1)

Medical professionals & insurance companies are well aware of the staggering number of patient deaths that occur EVERY year due to medical professionals’ misjudgment & errors, and adverse drug reactions – estimated to be in the range of 95,000 to 2,000,000 deaths. The term for this is “iatrogenic disease.”

What does the word ‘iatrogenic‘ mean?
The website: www.iatrogenic.org has some excellent articles discussing this frightening issue and a superb definition of the term – iatrogenic.

Iatros means physician in Greek, and –genic, meaning induced by, is derived from the International Scientific Vocabulary. Combined, of course, they become iatrogenic, meaning physician-induced. Iatrogenic disease is obviously, then, disease which is caused by a physician.

Or perhaps it is not so obvious. The growing complexity of modern life (and medicine) has promoted the elasticity of language. In common usage…iatrogenic disease is now applied to any adverse effect associated with any medical practitioner or treatment. The practitioner need not be a physician,

Essential Oils Tropical Disease Rx ~ First Aid Suggestions for Travelers

Tropical Disease Rx – Essential Oils Options
My husband and I traveled to India for a month, in late 2004. Tropical countries may expose travelers to all sorts of exotic diseases, especially those spread through mosquito/flea bites, which I’m prone to.

The Center for Disease Control makes everything sound dire and frightening… probably to keep Americans from ‘wandering abroad’ and learning about the rest of the world. Ooops, my political cynic just raised her ’squinty-eyed’ head! <grin>

Anyway, I dutifully researched ALL the possible major disease dangers for India and essential oils (EOs) to have in our first aid kits that might help…just in case.

Support Healthy Thyroid Function Naturally with Essential Oils

I’ve been using a variety of essential oils (EOs) for thyroid/endocrine support this past year with good results.

Plan on using therapeutic essential oils/ endocrine support blends consistently for a 30-to-90 day period, long enough to get clear results. It’s important to let your doctor know you’re considering natural self-help alternatives for thyroid support. Have your MD order bloodwork every 1-3 months to monitor your thyroid levels and check your body’s response, as you establish a supportive dosage & routine. This may seem to be a hassle and an extra expense, but it’s the best way to check the results of your self-help health therapies.
