What is Health...

In conventional medical thought, health is seen simply as the absence of disease.

You assume that you are healthy if there is nothing wrong with you. To a person versed in aromatherapy, health is much more than that. A healthy person is a person who is free on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social.

Obviously, a person with a broken leg is not free---on the physical level---to move around. But on a more subtle level, a person who cannot eat certain foods or is allergic to certain materials is also experiencing a lack of freedom.

It is a good emotional release to cry at a "tear jerker" movie, but someone who continues to cry for several weeks afterwards is experiencing a lack of freedom on the emotional level. Likewise, a person who cannot absorb what he has read or cannot remember day to day appointments is experiencing a restriction on the mental level. Someone who finds it difficult to trust or believe in either themselves, people or God is experiencing a lack of freedom in the social and spiritual aspects of life. Aromatherapy can be a powerful aid in overcoming the barriers to friendship and closeness which, in turn, can cause suffering, loneliness and isolation.

The professionally-trained aromatherapist recognizes such limitations and attempts, through the use of the properly selected blends and properly administered treatments, to restore the person to health and freedom.

An important basic difference exists between conventional medical therapy and aromatherapy. In conventional therapy, the aim often is to control the illness through regular use of medical substances, even if the medication is nothing more than vitamins. If the medication is withdrawn, however, the person returns to illness. There has been no cure. A person who takes a pill for high blood pressure every day is not undergoing a cure but is only controlling the symptoms.

Aromatherapy's aim is to initiate and facilitate the cure, the complete restoration of perfect health. True healing happens when we are empowered to change those factors in life that are at the root of disease.

Organic chemist, Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, PhD - This distinguished organic chemist shares his in depth knowledge of the particular current value of essential oils, for health on all levels.

Book:   Medical Aromatherapy
Book:  Advanced Aromatherapy
both written by organic chemist Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, PhD,
a distinguished and internationally recognized PhD in organic chemistry. These books are a thorough in-depth look at essential oils from a scientific viewpoint and include suggestions for their medical use. What is especially appealing about this author's approach is that he has applied his extensive research on plants into a very plausible explanation as to why essential oils have the healing properties they have.

"Healing with essential oils is different from purchasing mainstream medical services and products. It is a path away from the hubris of apparatus-medicine. It reverses the current attitudes of commerce before life, and information over reason. Aromatherapy is neither destructive business nor brain-dead information management; instead, it embraces all aspects of human life, including instinct and the human spirit.

Aromatherapy contributes to the realisation of health what no material science can --- it acknowledges, accepts and integrates the phenomena of the soul. Aromatherapy easily combines physiological and psychological betterment and, because plants are egalitarian, it does so for poor and rich alike."

"Daniel Penoel has called aromatic matter the immune system of humanity."

---Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt

The Holistic Approach is to look for the underlying cause of the disease, and to treat this rather than the symptoms.

The cause may lie in any of several different aspects of a person's lifestyle:

Emotional Lifestyle --- Our Emotional State

Nutritional Lifestyle --- Our Eating Habits

Exercise Lifestyle --- Our Physical State

Reticulo-Endothelial System (RES) --- Our Immunity System

Spiritual Lifestyle --- Our Spiritual State

Financial Lifestyle --- How We  "Work, Give, Save, and Spend"

Social Lifestyle --- Our Interpersonal Activities

 

Emotional Lifestyle --- Our Emotional State

This is where PsychoNeuroImmunology comes in. PsychoNeuroImmunology is the study of how thoughts can influence the brain and directly affect the health of cells in all parts of the body---and indeed, one's whole outlook on life.

About Pain... "Pain prunes the unessential emotions, ambitions, and illusions, teaching us the lessons
we either consciously or unconsciously
refuse to be taught by joy.
If we don't prune away the stress and plow under the useless in our lives, pain will do it for us."

---Sarah Ban Breathnach (June 29)

 

Financial Lifestyle --- How We  "Work, Give, Save, and Spend"

About Money ...

If Money Could Talk, What Would It Say...  I just wish people knew HOW MUCH GOOD they could do with me IF they treated me right, and HOW BLESSED their lives could be!

"For those stressed by civilization, Aromatherapy offers nature in a bottle."
