have any of you had patients claiming that the use of essential oils can kill and protect against "super bugs?" i have no doubt that essential oils can be helpful to health, and i wouldn't even be surprised if they can heal some things. but, the term "super bugs" went way too far for me. maybe they don't exactly know what they mean by the term? my understanding was that we were talking about things like mrsa, klebsiella, etc.
here's an blurb from the company that sells the oils:
when the great flu epidemic of 1918 was in full swing, gauze masks were worn over the face in attempts to keep from inhaling the lethal virus. it didn't work ...
the virus was many times smaller than the openings in the gauze. many volunteers who wore those masks lost their lives, thinking they were safe, in removing the dead from homes and city morgues. they simply inhaled the virus right through their masks.
today, we know that by diffusing a micro-fine, vaporized mist of therapeutic-grade essential oils into an enclosed atmosphere, potentially life-threatening viruses and bacteria are rendered harmless.
with the threat of super bugs growing ever more resistant to vaccines and antibiotics, diffusing essential oils makes more and more sense. it simply is the ultimate home health care defense against life-threatening organisms.
while diffusing essential oils will not stop a person from being infected outside of the home, it does create an infectious free zone of air within the home you can use to protect your loved ones. breathing air diffused with essential oils attacks any virus or bacteria lining the respiratory tract which may have been inhaled outside of the infectious free zone. it also keeps the infection from spreading to other family members.
it may be years before every household routinely diffuses to keep the air purified and free of infectious organisms, but these devises are available today.
sorry no quote, i don't want it popping up on searches. it won't take you long to figure out where it's from.
i pretty much love bleach. there's little else i trust. i sure as heck am not going to launch some eucalyptus into the air and hope for the best.
