    Thumbs up Natural remedies for Children & Pregnancy - Asthma, Eczema, Sinusitis, Fever

    I just wanted to share. I started using a brand name called Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils last year when my friend from Singapore recommended me. I manage to use these to clear my daughter's recurrent allergy cough, cured her eczema in 6 weeks (I've tried everything from energy healing, bach flower remedy, homeopath, natural path, chinese herbs, western medication, diet changes for 6 years! Nothing really helped until I started her with the Young Living all Natural supplements. And her eczema went away in 6 weeks!!). She also used to have recurrent ear infection, but I used an oil & she cleared in 3 days! My friends have also cleared their kids sinusitis & fever. & protected them from Hand Foot & Mouth and chickenpox with these oils.

    I just thought I'd post it here because I remember frantically trying to search here for experience sharing in eczema before. There will be a free Seminar next Friday at Park Lane Hotel. There will also be a bunch of free workshop next weekend. PM me if you want more info. I don't know if I'm allowed to post the details here.

    That seminar will be a recruitment drive and a big sales pitch to get into the MLM business.

    I could add much much more, but I'll stop there.

    The name of this company, Young Living, rang a bell and after a few minutes I recalled why. The founder was arrested for practicing medicine without a license and a number of different medical/fraud charges over the years and in several US states (I was working as an intern at a state attorney general's office that handled one of these cases years ago). The company, Young Living, has also had a number of issues with the FDA and other regulators in the US.

    While I do believe that alternative and complementary treatments do have a place in the world (we use a lot of eucalyptus oil around our house when someone gets a cold, etc.) statements such as "My friends have also cleared their kids sinusitis & fever. & protected them from Hand Foot & Mouth and chickenpox with these oils." concern me simply because they are simply medically and factually inaccurate. A person's immune system (or an antibiotic in the case of bacterial issues) clears out infections not a supplement (although certain supplements *may* "boost" an immune system). Additionally, there are no medically verifiable studies showing that any oil can protect against highly contagious diseases including chickenpox and hand, foot and mouth. If there was some sort of miracle oil to really protect against contagious diseases, conventional doctors would have picked up on this a long time ago...

    elle, you certainly have a wonderful way with words, expressing your disbelief intertwined with some wonderful prose.
    I prefer a much more direct choice of words when confronted with quackery : its a crock full of bovine excrement :)

    this is on pubmed, and independent website that shows essential oils do have its place in killing bacteria, most importantly anti-biotic resistant MRSA
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15555788
    "A combination of Citricidal and geranium oil showed the greatest-anti-bacterial effects against MRSA, whilst a combination of geranium and tea tree oil was most active against the methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (Oxford strain). This study demonstrates the potential of essential oils and essential oil vapours as antibacterial agents and for use in the treatment of MRSA infection."

    Conventional doctors didn't pick this up because in Medical school, they spent hours studying pharmaceutical company financed studies. Harvard Medical Students query their professor who kept pushing a cholesterol drug during class, because this professor is a paid consultant of the company who develop this drug.

    elle, as much as I respect your views, I have to post more independent studies

    http://www.naha.org/articles/varicel...e_patients.htm
    "Successful treatment of the varicella virus in hospice patients, using essential oils of Ravensara aromatica, Citrus bergamia and Melaleuca viridiflora var. quinquenervia."

    Ravensara the essential oil has sucessfully treated Varicella, the virus that cause chickenpox.
