Okay, so I just started seeing the most recent spree of “news” articles talking about the new antibiotic resistant ‘Superbug’ that is making
its rounds throughout hospitals and nursing homes across the world.
I first saw it jump up on the front page of ATS yesterday in THIS
article, and then
saw it on the front page of Weather.com this morning as well.
Words like ‘deadly,’ ‘untreatable,’ ‘death,’ ‘die,’ ‘huge threat,’ and ‘nightmare’ are used.
People are being told they have three options:
To amputate the infected limb,
Pump themselves full of toxic antibiotics (originally used back in the 80’s)
Talk about fear propaganda!
But not only does this reek of fear propaganda, it’s also just a plain, outright lie!
These antibiotic ‘superbugs’ ARE treatable! In fact, chances are, you could go to your local health food store (or amazon.com) to buy all the
supplies you will need to keep you and your family safe from these superbugs for less than 50 bucks!
The answer? Essential Oils!
(if you want to skip the brief tutorial on essential oils and go straight to the treatment, skip to the bottom section about ‘Thieves Oil.’
Now please, listen up, this isn’t just hippie, new-age, mumbo jumbo jargon. Essential oils are scientifically proven to be extremely powerful
treatments for all kinds of illnesses and injuries. Essential oils contain thousands of different kinds of chemical compounds that have all kinds of
effects, including: antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antidepressant, antimicrobial, and
I know, if you’re like I was up until just a while ago, you may think that essential oils are used just because they ‘smell good.’ We all know
the smell of lavender oil calms us down. But how? Why?
For starters, check out this fact:
"There are approximately 40 million trillion molecules in one drop of essential oil (that's approximately 40,000 molecules for each cell in the
average human body)," explains an article on essential oils published in the International Wellness Directory.
40 MILLION-TRILLION molecules in ONE drop! (Sorry, but that fact continuously blows my mind.)
Okay, so, obviously this means that each individual molecule is very small (with a molecular weight of about 58amu.) This is why essential oils have
such a strong scent; because the molecules are so small they readily leap into the air and fill the room.
Without going too far into the complexity of the molecular structure and chemical compounds found within the oils…essentially, what happens when you
smell the aroma of an oil is that you are inhaling millions of therapeutic molecules that are then brought into your lungs where they are absorbed
into the blood system. (The exact process as to how this all chemically unfolds within our body is still being figured out.)
Also, because of the extremely small size of the molecules, essential oils are able bypass the blood-brain barrier which most medicines and molecules
are unable to penetrate. This means the oils have a direct effect on your neurotransmitters and other intracellular messengers as well as on your
pituitary system (such as the pineal gland*.)
(*Sidenote: For those interested in the pineal gland: Mugwort, Sandalwood, Lavender, Frankincense, Myrrh, Pine essential oils are said to specifically
stimulate the pineal gland)
Now, of course, simply inhaling the essential oils is not the only way to use them. Essential oils are also GREAT when applied topically. They are
quickly absorbed by your skin and will make their way around your entire body within 20 minutes.
Although there are definitely some oils that you can apply ‘neat’ (without a diffusing agent) to the skin (such as lavender and tea tree oil) it
is usually suggested that you dilute the oils within a carrier oil such as organic olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, etc. They can then be
applied to all parts of the body, but the feet, spine, neck, and chest are particularly good areas. (Or directly to the wound/infection if you are
battling a specific situation.)
Okay, but back to…dun dun dun…. THE SUPERBUG OF DEATH!
This is a little bit about why essential oils are found to be more effective against these antibiotic resistant strains than…well…antibiotics.
“One reason virus and bacteria cannot mutate with therapeutic-grade essential oils is because of the chemical constituents that make up essential
oils. One essential oil can have anywhere from 200- 800 chemical constituents. It is impossible for a virus to mutate and adapt to the enormous number
of chemical constituents in a therapeutic-grade essential oil. Drugs are made by isolating one or two constituents. A virus can easily mutate and
adapt to the drug rendering it useless.”
Basically, because drugs are always made using the exact same formula which usually involves isolating just a few constituents, it is relatively easy
for the bacteria to figure out how to become immune to them. Essential oils, on the other hand, are so immensely complex that the bacteria can’t
effectively become resistant to them. Not only is this because oils have hundreds of different chemical constituents, but also because of factors such
as soil, rain, climate, sun, etc that is found where the specific plant for that specific bottle of oil was grown. In other words, even the same
‘oils’ are never the same!
This is straight from an article ran in the BBC back in 2004 regarding a study where scientists successfully killed MRSA and Superbug strains with
Jacqui Stringer, clinical leader of complementary therapies at Christie Hospital in Manchester, instigated the oils research. She said: "Our research
shows a very practical application which could be of enormous benefit to the NHS and its patients. "The reason essential oils are so effective is
because they are made up of a complex mixture of chemical compounds which the MRSA and other superbug bacteria finds difficult to resist.
Okay, do you believe it yet? There IS a cure and it is provided directly from Mother Nature herself! So stop listening to the CDC or the FDA or any
other medical institution! They are either actively involved in denying you life saving information strictly to continue making a profit, or at very
least, have their heads shoved so far in the sand they can’t read the flashing neon signs all around them!
Okay, so what oils should you use?
