Wellness Outside of “Big Pharma”
Is your medicine cabinet full of prescription medications? Maybe you use some, but often you wonder if they are really necessary or if there is an alternative to Big Pharma prescription medications. They are alternatives called Essential Oils.
They’re natural. They’ve been used for millennia to combat common health problems. Modern research regularly validates their innate therapeutic properties.
So why don’t physicians offer people essential oils over prescription medications? Is the physiology of the modern human species so different than our ancestors’? Why wouldn’t the same remedies applied by famed herbalists, Hildegard of Bingen in the 10th century or Nicholas Culpeper of the 17th, still serve us well today?
In fact, the human species has survived from generation to generation by using natural herbal remedies, while the pharmaceutical industry has only been around for a little over a century. So it doesn’t it stand to reason that, when addressing everyday health issues, essential oils are left out of the equation.
