Do you recommend Essential Oils?

After much research our office feels that, in the appropriate situations, essential oils may have a much higher benefit to supporting the body’s ability to heal than the use of some OTC medications. Most medications, whether by prescription or OTC, contain many synthetic or inert ingredients that have no value to the body. These inert or synthetic ingredients can have negative effects on child whose genetic makeup does not allow their bodies to rid medications easily. In these instances, the essential oils can provide non-synthetic, natural agents that actually provide fuel and energy to support healing and wellness. Just as with medications, in some instances, a patient may exhibit a contact irritation with the skin. Use of the essential oils in the manner that we recommend typically does not cause any unwarranted side effects. (If you decide to use the essential oils in a manner in which we have not recommended, side effects or other problems could occur.)
