Description
Explores science's new biological understanding of essential oils for improved immunity and treatment of degenerative diseases

• Explains how essential oils convey the complex natural healing powers of plants, offering scientifically proven advantages over synthetic drugs

• Offers revolutionary essential oil treatments to ameliorate the side effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments as well as for hepatitis, osteoporosis, liver detoxification, and the prevention of UV damage and melanoma

• Presents simple recipes and protocols for strengthening the immune system; for treatment of common ailments, such as colds, flu, herpes, and candida; and for pain management

Exploring science's new biological understanding of essential oils and their advantages over synthetic drugs, renowned aromatherapist Kurt Schnaubelt reveals how the effectiveness of essential oil treatments stems from our common biochemical and cellular heritage with plants. He explains how essential oils preserve a plant's complex natural life-supporting and immune-building qualities, developed through millions of years of interaction with animals and humans. Reviewing recent research in molecular, cellular, and evolutionary biology, he shows how the multilayered activity of plant essences helps maintain the integrity of our genetic code—the reason why pathogens cannot develop resistance toward essential oils as they do with antibiotics and antivirals—making essential oils a more effective and sustainable form of treatment for a variety of health problems.

Laying to rest old arguments over essential oils' alleged toxicity and whether they can be ingested or used undiluted, Schnaubelt presents simple recipes and protocols for treating and preventing common ailments, such as colds, flu, herpes, and candida, as well as for pain management. Offering new essential oil treatment opportunities for hepatitis, osteoporosis, liver detoxification, and the prevention of UV damage and melanoma, he shows how essential oils can also ameliorate the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments as well as how even home use of essential oils for relaxation or skin care can help build one's immunity and overall well-being.

        November 1, 2011

        Plants have evolved a sophisticated and complex call-and-response to their locale using scent to encourage pollinators and repel would-be predators. Schnaubelt (founder & scientific director, Pacific Inst. of Aromatherapy; Medical Aromatherapy) presents scientific reasoning for how these mechanisms are harnessed to fight viruses, bacteria, and fungi through the efficacious use of essential oils. Because essential oils exhibit a broad spectrum of physiological activity, they block these simple but nasty pathogens from developing the immunities often associated with standard antibiotics. With this point, Schnaubelt exposes the limitations of conventional pharmacological testing, which lends itself to misguided assumptions about the use and safety (or danger) of essentials oils, which he promptly corrects. Schnaubelt covers issues of authenticity and adulteration; the adjunct use of essential oils in the treatment of major diseases such as cancer, hepatitis, and MRSA infections; and application to traditional Chinese medicine. VERDICT Authoritatively written, this title will easily find an audience among herbalists, massage therapists, home-health advocates, complementary and alternative clinicians, and their patients. Conventional medical practitioners and pharmacists might also find it a worthy, informative read.--Janet Tapper, Univ. of Western States Lib., Portland, OR
