If you Google search Wake Up America you will find some intense websites everything from calling for us to wake up to the fact we are losing our personal rights and constitutional rights to Miley Cyrus albums. Although I don’t consider myself a radical fight for personal rights person I do recognize the fact that we have slowly and unknowingly lost some of them. On my dad’s side of the family are individuals who have been more outspoken about these issues and now I see that it’s my turn to speak up.
I am not going to ramble about the fact that gun control may not get guns out of the bad guys’ hands, or how unconstitutional Income Tax is. No. My point of contention has to do with the facts about pharmaceutical medications that so many seem to be asleep about.
The facts: For thousands of years food, herbs, and essential oils have been healing all kinds of ailments from digestive problems to cancer. God created all these things for our healing.
The reality: I can not tell you in a public forum in the United States that anything natural cures a disease because the United States has laws in place that state if a food, essential oil, or natural remedy cure or to treat any disease, it needs to be regulated as a drug by the Food and Drug Administration. That means if I wanted to tell you that a certain essential oil can naturally lower your blood pressure or help you with panic attacks I CAN NOT.
That rule may sound either good or bad to you depending where you stand in your health care. If you depend solely on doctors and medicine then you might think this helps keep you safe from all the crazy natural remedies out there that could potentially harm you.
If you use natural remedies consistently, you already know that they work in fact you may even know science and research behind many of the pure therapeutic essential oils and know they scientifically have been proven to help certain conditions. So why and how did these rules get into place? Well I am not going to rant about how Pharmaceutical Companies got the name Big Pharma and that they own the Food and Drug Administration I will just simply share 2 points I learned recently.
1. Natural Plant medicines can not be duplicated in a lab and can not be patented as a drug. If you can’t own a patent on it then there is no real profit.
2. When you replicate only some of the healing properties of the plant into a drug you will end up with side effects.
Because in just 1 drop of essential oil, there are so many different constituents and very, very small molecules the world does not have the technology to even see all the constituents in a single drop of pure essential oil. We can distill the pure plants to get the oil and use our current technology to understand most of the constituents but we cannot mimic nature in a lab.
Now with that said, most drugs are researched and developed from a natural source but what happens is when you take just one of the healing constituents out and replicate it into the drug, you also take away the synergy of balance that pure oil. Which means the drug will usually have side effects. In an oil, all the different constituents work together for balance.
Don’t believe me? Compare the stats of Pharmaceutical Over the Counter and Prescription medicines to the side effects of pure therapeutic food grade essential oils. 10 million adverse reactions yearly from FDA approved OTC and prescription medicines. 60,000-140,000 people die from adverse drug reactions. Proven deaths or lethal side effects from the proper use pure therapeutic essential oils ZERO. (Source Chemical Free Home 1 & 2)
So my initial point of today’s rant is we need to WAKE UP to the fact that there may be a safer and more effective solution for our health challenges. You may have to seek out books like the Essential Oil Desk Reference to learn more but if you do, you will find a whole world of natural tools to help.
My friend Kathy Kouwe’s life for the past 20 years has said, “I love waking people up to the fact that they have a choice”. Her ministry is “You Have A Choice” Ministry. Let’s wake up to the fact that there may be a more natural and safer solutions out there than pharmaceuticals. Let’s wake up to the fact that your choices may directly effect the quality, longevity, and overall health of you and your family.
I will be praying for your success and let me know what your experiences are with natural versus pharmaceutical solutions.
