A 2012 article published in PubMed Central (PMC) states that "interest in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased dramatically in the past decade".* There is definitely a demand by patients for this , as revealed by a 2007 national health survey where they documented more than $34 billion spent on CAM annually in the United States.
Aromatherapy is part of the growing list of CAM methodology. Essential Oils have been in use for thousands of years. Current distillation and processing methods however are creating Essential Oils that are purer, cleaner, more concentrated and more effective than ever. The practice of using Essentials Oils for wellness, illness prevention and as complementary medicine is gaining acceptance within the medical community in Europe and in other parts of the world. Unfortunately, most medical practitioners have not had enough exposure to the science of Essential Oils.
Our mission is to bring together traditional and alternative medicine and to encourage the application of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This particular website focuses on education and integrated use of therapeutic and/or medicinal -grade essential oils as part of a family's lifestyle.
In order to provide a resource with regard to Aromatherapy for the medical community, we have created a private group site for medical professionals only. The group site features a book list, training events and classes, related websites, a list of medical studies related to essential oils, featured studies and access to the medical panel site of doTERRA International. We will also feature interviews with medical professionals and patients who have had responses to the use of Essential Oils.
This site is not sponsored by doTERRA. We are Wellness Advocates who are passionate about helping others.
