essential-oil-drop(NaturalHealth365) Every year, over 100,000 people across the nation die from reactions to prescription drugs – a truly grim statistic. When you factor in deaths from over-the-counter medications and surgical errors, the modern medical system – intended to preserve and protect life — acquires the distinction of being a leading cause of death in the United States.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to toxic pharmaceutical substances.  Dr. Eric Zielinski’s Abundant Life approach is natural, safe and even grounded in Biblical precepts — essential oils, extracted directly from plant parts, are utilized to support the body’s own healing system and help create optimal health.

Learn how to safely and effectively use essential oils as part of a healthy and abundant lifestyle

On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Eric Zielinski – a.k.a. “Dr. Z” – explore the therapeutic use of essential oils and discuss practical ways to eliminate health issues safely and effectively.  Which essential oils are best for internal use?  Is it safe for children to use essential oils?  Plus, we’ll take a closer look at quality and contamination issues within the essential oils industry.  Educate yourself to protect your health.

Peppermint: An old-fashioned remedy takes aim against modern health issues

Peppermint oil, one of the world’s most time-honored and versatile natural remedies, has been employed for thousands of years as the go-to treatment for digestive problems. Like all essential oils, it is highly concentrated – Dr. Z says a single drop of peppermint oil in a teaspoon of honey is enough to quickly banish nausea and indigestion.

But peppermint’s usefulness isn’t limited to easing old-fashioned stomach aches and heartburn. According to recent clinical studies, peppermint oil worked better than placebo in reducing pain in patients suffering from a more contemporary ailment – irritable bowel syndrome.

Thanks to its high concentrations of menthone and menthol, peppermint oil also has potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a valuable ally against backache, toothache and headache.  As a natural antiseptic, peppermint can help combat dandruff; as an expectorant, it relieves allergy symptoms.

But the most exciting development may be peppermint oil’s potential for treating Alzheimer’s disease.  In one study, peppermint oil – along with lavender and other essential oils – produced a sharp drop in disturbed behavior in the majority of study participants.

Remember, Dr. Z advises taking no more than a single, potent drop of peppermint oil internally, and even this tiny amount should be diluted in an edible carrier oil, such as coconut oil or honey.

Lavender: A gentle “old school” fragrance with high-tech disease-fighting powers

One of the key elements in aromatherapy, lavender has been used since ancient times to calm frazzled nerves and promote restful sleep.  But this pleasingly-scented essential oil is so much more than a mere potpourri ingredient.

Lavender is rich in antioxidants, giving it the power to protect against disease-causing oxidative stress. One Romanian study has shown that simply inhaling the scent of lavender for an hour was enough to provide neuroprotective effects. Recent animal studies have shown that lavender also helps combat blood sugar increases, metabolic illness, weight gain, antioxidant loss, and liver and kidney dysfunction.  Other studies have supported lavender’s ability to fight dementia, improve mood and combat depression.

As if that weren’t enough, lavender – when properly diluted in a carrier oil – is an anti-microbial agent that also soothes irritated skin.

    Thanks, this will be educational. I do buy these oils, but am not always sure how to use them.

  • David_R59

    This article is basically worthless!
    It’s not enough to say that Lavender oil does this or that without saying how it is to be administered.
    Is it to be taken internally? Topically? Inhaled? Without that information more harm than good can come from using it the wrong way.
    Lavender may do little harm either way, but there are some substances that should never be taken internally but may be safely used topically.

    I think the evolution of essential oils will depend on educating the consumer. When I shop for these oils I do so, because I read something about both its use and benefits.

  • Betsy Freedman

    Consumers need to know the best oils for each condition. Also, the best brand to use. I will be listing as I know this talk will have some of this information.
