Why Oils Instead Of Pharmaceuticals?

*Disclaimer* I am a mom who has decided to be proactive when it comes to my family’s health. I have learned a lot about oils through the use of desk references, trial and error, word of mouth, and other oil studies and literature. However, I am not a doctor. I will not give you medical advice or attempt to diagnose you. I will do our best to arm you with the resources you need to make educated decisions yourself that you can feel confident about.

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider prior to starting any new treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Because the practice of medicine is regulated and protected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA), no medical claims pertaining to the effect, success or impact of Essential Oil’s can be made by anyone…not even by a licensed physician. The difference between practicing medicine and practicing health is a matter of language. To practice medicine requires a license…To promote good health does not. Therefore, I do not diagnose, prescribe or offer treatment for disease. I do offer health information to support and teach the visitors to my site how to rely on themselves to build better health.
