How Aromatherapy Can Change Your Life by JayKay Bak
You may have heard of Aromatherapy but you probably have no idea what it is or how it can change your life. Perhaps you’ve seen ads for aromatherapy massage or even purchased what you thought were aromatherapy candles in the store. Most likely, you don’t understand much about aromatherapy or the wonderful healing powers possessed by true aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is an ancient Eastern art that has been practiced for thousands of years. Although it is hardly anything “new” it sometimes takes a little bit of time for people in the West to discover such things such as natural healing, especially when it is not in the best interest of the very powerful medical and pharmaceutical communities.
Those of us who live in the West have an entirely different mindset th those in the East. In the West, when someone gets ill, they go to the doctor who more often than not, prescribes medication to treat or cure the ailment. The medication is produced in a laboratory and conta synthetic chemicals. Pharmaceuticals are big business and doctors ar often courted by sales people from the companies to prescribe the product.
Go to a doctor in the West for a bit of anxiety and they will prescribe an depressants such as Zoloft. Chances are your doctor will have a prescription pad in his or her hand when they walk into the room. Zo is among the many different anti depressant medications that are relatively new on the market and lumped under SSRIs. The long term side effects of these drugs are not known, although they will most li cause liver damage after long usage.
No doctor it the West will prescribe any alternative treatment, such as aromatherapy. Some might tell you to exercise and take vitamins to combat anxiety, but most won’t even do that. The medical community dances on the strings held by the pharmaceutical companies and the name of the game in pharmaceuticals is to give people synthetic drugs that are addictive and costly so that they can make money.
