1. WHY OILS HEAL AND DRUGS DONT
by David Stewart, Ph.D.
If you tell a medical doctor that essential oils can bring about
healing with no negative side effects, they won't believe you.
This is because in medical school students are repeatedly told
by their professors that all effective medicines have negative
side effects, and if they don't, then they can't be effective.
When I was in medical school one professor emphasized this
point in a colorful, graphic manner with specially prepared slides.
In each slide specific drugs were depicted as evil looking demons
or goblins. As he presented each picture, he explained, "Although
ugly and capable of doing harm, these 'demons' are also the
bearers of some good. So long as the benefits outweigh the risks,
we use them," he summarized. "We have no choice," he continued,
"because if a drug has no dangers, then it can have no benefits.
That's just the way it is. And that's why it is essential that only
qualified physicians be allowed to prescribe medicines,"
Actually, the professor was telling the truth. Within the
restricted practice of allopathy (MDs) the only real medicines
are physician prescribed pharmaceuticals. Such medicines always
do have negative side effects. All of them. No exceptions.
Hence, doctors are trained to accept the bad with the good as
the price of effective medicine.
The Danger is in the Drug, Itself
The dangers of prescription drugs are intrinsic to the drugs,
themselves. No matter how careful the physician in prescribing
and how compliant the patient in following doctor's orders,
even then deaths and damages occur. In fact, according to
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, more than 100,000
Americans die every year, not from illegal drugs, not from drug
overdoses, not from over-the-counter drugs, and not from drug
abuses, but from properly prescribed, properly taken prescriptions.
In this country, more people die from doctor's prescriptions every
ten days than were killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Why is this so? Why do allopathic drugs always have undesirable
effects (along with their apparent benefits) while one can find
healing with natural products, such as essential oils, with no
undesirable effects? Here is why.
Why Companies Deliberately Sell Dangerous Products
It is illegal to patent any natural product. The way to big profits
in the medicine industry is to create an unnatural substance that
never before existed in nature, then patent it, and obtain a
monopoly. Hence, the molecules of pharmaceutical drugs are all
strange to the human body. In all the history of humankind, such
molecules were never encountered or taken into any human body.
Hence, the body does not easily metabolize them. God never made
your body to accept and deal with these chemicals and antibiotics.
Hence, you can find traces of prescription drugs in your body that
were taken in childhood, decades ago.
On the other hand, natural molecules, such as those found in
essential oils, are easily metabolized by the body. In fact, your
body was created to handle them. When an essential oil molecule
finds the receptor sites it was designed to fit and conveys its
information to the cell, or participates in other therapeutic functions,
it then goes on its way to the liver and the kidneys and moves out of
the body. Its benefits have been conveyed and its job is complete.
By contrast, the unnatural molecules of man-made drugs attach
themselves to various tissues, disrupting normal function, for years
while the body tries to figure out what to do with them. Meanwhile,
they wreak mischief with our bodily functions and even our minds.
Drugs versus Oils
Drugs and oils work in opposite ways. Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify.
Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Oils clean receptor sites.
Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune
system. Antibiotics attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both
the good and the bad. Oils attack only the harmful bacteria,
allowing our bodys friendly flora to flourish.
Drugs are designed to send misinformation to cells or to block
certain receptor sites in order to trick the body into giving up
symptoms. But drugs never deal with the actual causes of disease.
They aren't designed for that purpose. While they may give prompt
relief for certain uncomfortable symptoms, because of their
strange, unnatural design, they will always disrupt certain other
bodily functions. Thus you always have some side effects.
Oil molecules send information to cells and cleanse receptor sites
so that they bring your body back to natural function. Oils are
Balancing to the body. Drugs are unbalancing to the body. Oils address
the causes of disease at a cellular level by deleting misinformation
and reprogramming correct information so that cells function properly
and in harmony with one another. With drugs, misinformation
is fed into the cells so that some temporary relief may be obtained,
but there is never any true healing. Drugs only trade one kind of
disease for another.
Because essential oils properly applied always work toward the
restoration of proper bodily function, they do not cause undesirable
side effects. They are feeding the body with truth. Drugs feed the
body with lies. While no amount of truth can contradict itself, it
doesn't take many lies before contradictions occur and the body
suffers ill effects.
Sixteen Doctors Speak Out
Not all physicians are caught up in the idea that the only good
medicines are ones that can also be harmful. Here are some comments
by physicians, themselves, on the practice of medicine.
"The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians
superstitiously give in order to effect a cure." Charles E. Page,
"Medicines are of subordinate importance because of their very
nature, they can only work symptomatically." Hans Kusche, M.D.
"The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the
disease and once from the medicine." William Osler, M.D.
"If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would
bad for the fish and good for humanity"
O.W. Holmes, M.D. (Prof. of Med. Harvard University)
"Drug medications consist in employing, as remedies for disease,
those things which produce disease in well persons. Its materia
medica is simply a lot of drugs or chemicals or dye-stuffsin a word
poisons. All are incompatible with vital matter; all produce disease
when brought in contact in any manner with the living; all are poisons."
R.T. TraIl, M.D., (lecture to members of congress and the medical
profession, Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C.)
"Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition."
Robert Henderson, M.D.
"The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the
suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning."
Henry Lindlahr, M.D.
"Every educated physician knows that most diseases are not
appreciably helped by medicine."
Richard C. Cabot, M.D. (Mass. Gen. Hospital)
"Medicine is only palliative, for back of disease lies the cause,
and this cause no drug can reach." Wier Mitchel, M.D.
"Medical practice has neither philosophy nor common sense to
recommend it. In sickness the body is already loaded with
impurities. By taking drug - medicines more impurities are
added, thereby the case is further embarrassed and harder to
cure." Elmer Lee, M.D., Past Vice President, Academy of Medicine.
"Our figures show approximately four and one half million hospital
admissions annually due to the adverse reactions to drugs. Further,
the average hospital patient has as much as thirty percent chance,
dependinghow long he is in, of doubling his stay due to adverse drug
reactions." Milton Silverman, M.D. (Professor of Pharmacology,
University of California)
"What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true
science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built
around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be
expelled when the right drug is found?" John H. Tilden, M.D.
"We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male
population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana.
It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with
millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs."
Robert Mendelsohn, M.D (author of book, "Confessions of a
"Why would a patient swallow a poison because he is ill, or take
that which would make a well man sick."
L.F. Kebler, M.D.
"Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's
protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the
pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has
to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present
symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse
condition, though unconscious of it at the time."
Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
"The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and
medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty
and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the
drug system will be abandoned." Charles Armbruster, M. D.
So there you have it, why oils heal and drugs don't. Let's hope
Dr. Armbruster is right, that "the time is not far distant when
the drug system will be abandoned." Pharmaceutical companies
and their physician drug dealers could market and sell natural
products with genuine healing capabilities, but most won't.
There isn't any money in it.
In my opinion, changing the medical system toward more natural
and spiritual forms of healing is impossible. The system can't
change. It must be replaced. Those of you who have opted
out of the system in favor of essential oils and their physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual benefits are among the pioneers
who are replacing the system.
And for those of you who have taken prescriptions drugs over
long periods of time, essential oils are your best friend because
they can cleanse the residues of these drugs from your system
once and for all and help restore your body back to its natural
2. The First Care Instructors in Canada
The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education (CARE)
Is proud to announce the first two Certified CARE Instructors
In Canada who are now members of the CARE Teaching Faculty.
Carol Howden, CCI
5 Bowridge Crescent
Cochrane, AB T4C 1T5
Lois Loyek, CCI
Battleford, SK S0M 0E0
For the availability of CARE Classes anywhere in Canada, contact
Carol or Lois directly.
A Certified CARE Instructor (CCI) is authorized to teach Classes
For CARE Credit in the areas of Healing Oils of the Bible, Applied
Vitaflex, and Raindrop Technique.
Carol and Lois have actually gone beyond the basic certification
in that they have also completed the requirements to teach
Emotional Release classes in the name of CARE for CARE credit.
Not all CCIs are authorized to do this. They also have fulfilled
the additional requirements to be a Supervising CCI.
Carol and Lois both aspire to teach the CARE Chemistry course,
which they have now taken four times. At this time that particular
topic is only taught by Dr. David Stewart. However, Dr. Stewart is
working on a book to be entitled AROMACHEMISTRY: THE SCIENCE
OF ESSENTIAL OILS MADE SIMPLE. He intends to follow the book
with a set of videos in which the CARE Class is presented.
When the book and videos are out (some time during 2004) then
other CARE Instructors will be trained to teach this course.
When Carol and Lois are trained to do that, they will be qualified
to teach every course CARE offers.

Here are some comments readers have made on the book
Healing Oils of the Bible
This is the best book I have ever read in my life. I finished it
days despite the fact that I have two young boys (ages 2 and 4).
I liked it because it establishes a Biblical basis for aromatherapy
and the use of essential oils, subjects that I love. I just couldnt
it down and I keep going back. Kelly Fowler, Flagstaff, Arizona
Most enjoyable. Easy to read. Very objective. Presents modern-day
applications of essential oils as well as their use in scriptural times.
A good book for ministers to gain a perspective on anointing with oils.
I was amazed at the comprehensive research Dr. Stewart has done.
Very thorough. So much wonderful material. I enjoyed the book very
much. Rev. Don Bleyle, Retired Pastor, Lakewood, Colorado
I just received Healing Oils of the Bible a month ago and am now
on my third time reading it through. I feel like I have discovered a
great treasure chest. I have been a Christian all my ife, since earliest
childhood, and am discovering things about my faith I never knew
before. This book has really opened things up for me. What an exciting
book! Sherry Reese, Tallahassee, Florida
"This book is extremely enlightening as well as a great source of
reference. One feature I really appreciate is that you can open it to
any chapter and read the information you are after without losing anything
from previous chapters. It is not necessary to read the book in it's chronological
order. Thank you David for organizing it in this manner."
Don Samuels, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
I just received your book, Healing Oils of the Bible and am totally
fascinated by it. I was up till 4 A.M. reading it! It just amazes me what
you have in there. Reading it has been a real awakening for me. I love
the way you have it formatted so that you can pick any chapter and it
reads as a stand-alone work. And as for the Bible Program at the end,
I am really touched by your generosity and graciousness. This is a
ministry I want to do. I just want to bless you and thank for such a
beautiful gift. Kay Cansler, Asheville, North Carolina
I have just received my first 20 copies of Healing Oils of the Bible.
WOW! Dr. Stewart has done a fantastic job of getting tons of
information into one great resource for anyone using oils. The
appendices are fantastic. So rich, so thorough. I got so excited,
I had to get out my scriptural oils and start anointing myself. I kept
my blend of oils from Exodus in my pocket the whole time I read the
book. Dr. Stewart outlines a great Bible Oils program that you can
do in your community. Anyone could do the program with this
helpful text. Even me. What a great book!
Jacquelyn Close, CCI, RA, Director
Center for Conscious Healing , Jackson, Missouri
I ABSOLUTELY love this book! It is not 'just' another book on
aromatherapy. The scientific and historical research on essential
oils are thorough and the presentation is easy to read and follow.
Most importantly, its fun to read! I can't put the book down. . .
If you are new to essential oils, this book is a MUST. It will greatly
enhance your appreciation and understanding of the power of
these wonderful 'God given' oils.
Wendy Saw RHN, THP, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Dr. Stewart has done his homework. His delivery of hundreds
of Bible references to essential oils combined with their uses is
clear, concise, enjoyable, and fun. He has a rare gift for
integrating, synthesizing, and applying vast amounts of
nformation. A must read for anyone interested in the Biblical
bases of healing with oils.
John Maeder and Marilee Tolen, RN, HNC, Atco, New Jersey
My first copy of Healing Oils of the Bible arrived while I was
at ministerial school. After classes ended for the term, I took
one week to vegetate and what did I do but lay in the camper
that was provided for me and read and reread this fabulous
book. My friends who were ordained during this session have
now received this book as a gift from me. In fact, this book
is one of the main gifts I give away to everyone now. I quote
from it constantly. Terrie Woznicki, Cicero, Illinois
David Stewart has a way of communicating that is easy to
read and understand. After reading the book, I immediately
ordered another one so that I could share it with others. For
me the book brought a union of the physical and spiritual
world and helped me to understand that there is much more
to healing than just the physical. David Stewart has brought
ancient healing practices together with today's science for
tomorrow's future. Nicole Page, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
