We live in a time when the overuse of antibiotics is now reaping its consequences. This causes a lot of confusion and concern. What can we do about it? Are there other choices?
Gratefully, there is another choice. A wonderful and amazing choice. The choice being: Therapeutic-grade Essential Oils. This page compares essential oils to antibiotics. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each one? Read on and see!
Much of the information on this page in comparing antibiotics and essential oils is summarized from the book Healing Oils of the Bible by David Stewart. His writing is very clear and logical with a ring of sincerity.
An antibiotic consists of a very specific chemical makeup and every batch is identical.
Essential oils have very complex chemical make-ups and no batch is ever the same. A single oil may have dozens or even hundreds of chemical constituents all working together.
(Note: The above points refer only to essential oils that are pure and of therapeutic grade. Oils that have been adulterated, diluted or distilled using chemicals do not apply here.)
Therapeutic-grade essential oils provide us with an option to the constant use of antibiotics.
I used this option some time ago when I was bitten by a cat. The cat sank her teeth into my arm. Cat bites are notoriously known to be dangerous for the risk of infection. I chose to use my essential oils both internally and topically. I had decided that if I did not see improvement within one or two days then I would go to a doctor. The need to see a doctor did not come about. I did great! For further details about this experience click here: Cat Bite Story
It is important though to use good judgement and common sense. In many situations this may mean using oils while on the way to the doctor/hospital.
No, not at all. There are times when there may be a medical emergency and an antibiotic may save a life. My father's life has been saved several times because of antibiotics and I am very grateful.
There are also times when something is quite serious and you shouldn't wait to see if you can take care of something on your own. Please, use good judgement always!
It is my personal opinion that as more is learned about essential oils we will learn what oils or combinations will work just as quickly (possibly quicker) than any drug for a given symptom and we will know in what quantities to use them, how to use them more effectively, etc. Until then there are definitely those times when antibiotics and/or prescription drugs are needed. And then again, maybe we will always need both - and that is O.K. too.
