1. Oils and Allopathy: Permanent Medicine vs. Temporary
Measures, by David Stewart, PhD.
Applying essential oils is an ancient and effective modality for (1)
First Aid, (2) Stress Management, (3) Pain Management, (4) Improving Your
Quality of Life, and (5) Living up to Your Peak Performance. Aromatic
science is a new field of research that is rediscovering the many health
benefits of aromatherapy once lost in antiquity but are now being verified
and refined by modern studies. "Improving Your Quality of Life"
includes finding effective ways via oils for such things as diabetes,
sinusitis, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, depression,
cancer and a host of other chronic or terminal diseases.
TREATING SYMPTOMS VS. PERMANENT HEALING
Allopathic medicine can relieve symptoms and make you feel better, but it does not address the problem that produced the symptoms. Hence, you can be made to feel fine and still be sick. The consequence is that your body can then come down with a different and, perhaps, worse malady with another set of symptoms.
Taken to allopathic extremes, medical doctors, unable to solve a problem in a particular member or organ in your body, will resort to surgery and simply remove that member or organ. That would certainly remove the symptoms, but you would then be maimed for life and resigned to live with one or more missing body parts. Such an approach usually leads to more complications and more unpleasant symptoms later on, if not immediately, following the surgery. But to the mind of an allopath, they would have solved the problem you had presented to them. The fact that the post-surgery patient now has additional and different problems is not relevant in allopathic thinking because the patients original problem has been removed. In the words of an allopathic surgeon, The operation was a success, but as for the patient . . .
The best of modern medicine is emergency medicine. If I am in a bad accident
with major head trauma, an open bleeding wound, serious internal injuries,
or a broken limb, take me to the closest emergency room. Let them apply
their skills with pharmaceuticals, surgery, x-ray machines, and sophisticated
technology, etc., so I can live through the crisis. But leave the healing
to me by other means.
LIFE IS MORE THAN CHEMISTRY: THE QUANTUM CONNECTION
Classical physics deals with processes bigger than an atom or molecule.
Quantum physics deals with processes smaller than an atom, i.e. individual
electrons, neutrons, and protons. Quantum physics teaches us that human
thought influences electron behavior. Every physiological function in
the human body involves electrons. Electrons are the mind-body connection.
In quantum physics, given specific conditions there are no specific outcomes and definite answers, but only a set of possibilities. One cannot predict with certainty which possibility will manifest from a given set of conditions. Questions in quantum physics will have a spectrum of probably answers, the final answer influenced by such things as the thoughts and intent of the experimenter.
THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION
Essential oils are composed of chemical compounds, but also have electrical
properties at the level of electrons and protons. This places them partially
in the realm of quantum physics. Essential oils respond to human thought.
They amplify intent. This is why they work so well in combination with
But even quantum physics and classical science combined are not sufficient to account for how our bodies work and how essential oils work in our bodies. Human function transcends the laws of the material world, as does the behavior of essential oils.
OILS AND EMOTIONAL ROOTS OF DISEASE
NATURAL VS. SYNTHETIC
Synthetic compounds may be copies of the chemical formulas of compounds
found in essential oils, but they are lacking the subtle energies contained
in natural substances. Those who apply essential oils for healing soon
learn that only pure, natural, complete, and unadulterated oils bring
about healing, while synthetic oils, or oils adulterated by synthetic
compounds, do not.
BE SURE YOU USE THERAPEUTIC GRADE OILS
The proof of an oils quality is in its manifested benefits, which you can verify yourself by using it. Testing in a laboratory for its chemical properties is not sufficient to ascertain its levels of subtle energy necessary to provide healing benefits. At this time, I am aware of only one company in North America with a large variety of therapeutic grade oils, blends, and oil-based products of verifiable efficacy and consistent quality.
THE INTELLIGENCE OF ESSENTIAL OILS
There is an intelligence within essential oils that knows about homeostasis. For example, the same oil, like lavender, can energize you when you need energy or relax you when you need to relax. Cypress oil can stimulate blood flow when you need to increase circulation or can slow it down if that is what you need. Meanwhile, both lavender and cypress oils can be working in your body in a myriad other ways to restore and maintain physiological, emotional, and mental balance.
All essential oils are antimicrobial to an extent, some more than others.
This means that they provide a hostile environment to bacteria, viruses,
mold, fungi, and parasites. However, being intelligent, they know the
difference between dangerous microbes and harmless or helpful ones. We
need certain bacteria in our bodies to digest, assimilate, and metabolize
our food and utilize our vitamins and minerals.
By contrast, essential oils kill only the harmful microbes while nurturing the friendly flora of our bodies. Hence, when you overcome a cold, flu, pneumonia, or other malady with the help of essential oils, your immune system has been strengthened.
The points given above are not a complete discussion of the profound differences between allopathic medicine and natural medicine. Watch future issues of the Raindrop Messenger for more.

Seven years ago I had severe arthritis pain in my right knee for which a doctor recommended a knee replacement. I declined. (See Raindrop Messenger Archives, Vol 3, No 4, 2005, at www.RaindropTraining.com.) Instead I used Wintergreen and Cypress Oil applied twice a day, morning and evening. I also applied PanAway from time to time. It took two months to heal and for the next five or six years there was no pain in that knee. I walked hundreds of miles, including climbing mountain paths and rugged terrain.
A year and a half ago a pain of a different kind came into that knee and the Wintergreen and Cypress did not work this time. Neither did the PanAway have any mitigating effect on the knee. I eventually realized that the source of the pain was not in the knee. It was a displaced pain from a pinched nerve at L5 in my lower spine, a form of sciatica. That is why the Wintergreen and Cypress oil applied directly to the knee did not work this time. The previous pain had been arthritis in the knee joint, but this time it was different and had a different root originating in the lumbar region of my spine.
It is not always easy to figure out the causes of your ailments. After months of prayer and introspection I discovered the emotional roots of that pain dating back to some experiences in my early teen years and began working on the spiritual issues involved. The pain subsided almost immediately once I zeroed in on the correct issues and dealt with them. But it would still return from time to time. It takes time and hard work to clear deep emotional issues and remnants can hang on long after you have begun to understand the underlying problem.
I then found a formula that works all the time and my knee has been pain-free ever since. It is simple: Every day, in the morning, I take the following:
4 Longevity gel capsules
It works for me. No more recurring sciatic pain. No more aching knee. Try it. It might work for you, too.
As for the books that helped me discover the emotional issues underlying
my pain, I consulted several. The two principle ones are as follows:
Both are available via the CARE Website at http://www.RaindropTraining.com. When you apply the affirmations in these and other books on emotional roots, apply them with concentration and feeling until you get results. It can take weeks or months of daily affirmation before complete healing takes place, but if you have correctly identified the roots and found the right affirmation, it has to work sooner or later. It is a law of the universe. Our diseases and sicknesses begin in the mind and it is in the mind that they can be permanently healed. But you have to be willing to work at it, maintain your faith in the process, enlist God's help, and don't quit until you succeed. With practice you get better and better at it.
