It’s Been a Long Time

Various moments from Iphone 467

Wow, I have been so out of touch with my writing.  When I looked back at the last time I wrote anything on here it was in 2014.  I can’t believe I have been away this long.  Well no time to cry over spilled milk.  I am here now and pledge to stay.  There have been so many things happening since my time away that I don’t know where to start so if I sound a bit jumbled, please forgive me.

One of the things I have been working on in my time of silence is learning more about essential oils.  I had been a user for a couple of years but when a family member got diagnosed with stage four cancer, and the only sure resolution that the Dr.’s had to offer was the usual cocktails of chemo and radiation along with surgery; that would leave him with a severely depleted quality of life. I decided to get really serious about them.  As a result of seeing how they, along with Kangen ionized water made a world of difference in his outcome, I became an essential oil advocate and educator, teaching others about their power and uses as an alternative to pharmaceutical medicines.  It’s not that I am saying to not use medicine at all; I am advocating taking back the power to control how your health care will go, and don’t just relinquish all of it to the hands of the AMA (American Medical Association), and your doctors.

The problem with our society is that we have grown so dependent on the “Expertise” of someone with a title and label; that we have relinquished our ability to educate ourselves on matters that we have been conditioned to believe we are not qualified to deal with.  When we go and sit in the Dr.’s office we don’t go in with the mindset that they; though trained and educated in their field of study, don’t know or have all the answers.  There have been too many times that I have gone into the Dr.’s office and asked about a natural remedy that I wanted to use instead or try and was told, “I don’t know anything about that”… or urged against it because they weren’t supportive of it.  Just because they don’t know about it or have not been trained and educated in it, does not invalidate the practice or discredit it.  In many cases I find their (the medical dr.’s) opposition towards other health practices arrogant and narcissistic.

We as individuals have the same ability to investigate and do research or trust the research that others have already done to educate ourselves and choose what we feel is best for our bodies and lives if we want.

That being said, I will be adding information about how incorporating essential oils into our daily lives is an added tool to empower us on our journey. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get, but you can choose how you will deal with what you get and not just fall victim to allowing others to choose for you.

That’s my bit for the moment, until next time.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
