Essential Mythbusters #5 - Oil people hate modern medicine



I cannot speak for everyone who uses essential oils, but I don’t hate modern medicine. I think we can forget its place. A few weeks ago, I asked Twitter what came to mind when they heard the term, “natural health.” Twitter loves questions like this. Here are a few responses:
“People who create a false dichotomy and assume 'natural' as an alternative to contemporary medicine.”
“'There’s an oil for that’ slogans on FB posts and being told the opposite of natural health products/care is toxic and deadly.”
“Pathological fear of disease and pharmaceuticals.”
“Tried and true tonic, elixirs, and teas that were used before modern western medicine.”
Let’s take the weird out of essential oils, shall we. The term natural health can have all kinds of connotations, but as in all things, we seek the truth behind the hype, the media, the “I know this one person.”
We’ve all been there—a point of frustration with the healthcare system, paying copays, urgent care versus emergency room versus virtual visit, overprescribed medication, money, money, money.
Here’s what I appreciate about doTerra and my continuing knowledge of supplements and essential oils. We have options. The medicine we do need has all-natural partners that offer both alternative and additional support to our bodies. It’s empowering to know my options.
Check out the article about St. Elizabeth Cancer Center in Kentucky. They offer an integrative approach to the care they offer their patients, including doTerra essential oils.
Envision this with me; a better understanding of how essential oil fits in our overall best healthcare practices, and a lifelong partnership between modern medicine and (a proper approach to) natural health.

doTERRA is a Latin derivative, meaning “gift of the earth.” From the beginning, the mission of doTERRA has been to share the highest-quality essential oils with the world. Having seen the incredible benefits of using these precious resources, a group of healthcare and business professionals set out to make that mission a reality in 2008. Today, they are a privately owned, debt-free 2+ billion dollar company.
