Essential Oil Alternatives For the Top 10 Drugs Prescribed by Pediatricians



Essential Oil Alternatives For the Top 10 Drugs Prescribed by Pediatricians
By Julie Behling

When your child becomes unwell, you want to do everything you possibly can to help that child recover and be restored to health. Take your child to a doctor, and that doctor will often prescribe a drug to "fix" whatever the issue is. But is it really that simple? Are drugs really the answer 9 times out of 10 as many doctors would seem to suggest?

A prominent health expert recently stated:

"The day is fast coming when health insurance schemes collapse and self care becomes the order of the day. But many Americans aren't ready for this.

Certainly many Americans are angry at the passage of Obamacare. But a man I met at a Postal Annex store said he needed the insurance coverage and welcomed it, as he has problems with his joints and diabetes. He wanted the medicines that only the insured can afford.However, Obamacare, or even the pre-existing healthcare system, would not make him any healthier. But this man, along with many other Americans, has no perception of this.

Drugs will be prescribed for him that calm symptoms but never restore health and in fact may create new diseases. Some drugs cause the very disease they are intended to treat."

Before you fill that prescription for your child's cold, flu, or even ADD, take a look at this -

Here are 3 Reasons to Consider Natural Alternatives to Prescribed Drugs for your Child

1. Negative side effects for the drug your doctor prescribed for your child - you might unknowingly be causing more problems as you attempt to help your child be well.

2. Therapeutic-grade essential oils (and other quality products on the market) have a tried and true track record of giving powerful, yet gentle results to children with little risk of side effects.

3. Be empowered to help your child be healthy no matter if there is a natural disaster and pharmacies are shut down.

Give Natural a Chance!

"Americans can fix most of their emergent and every-day health problems at home at far less cost - like headaches, coughs, allergies, colds, backaches, infections, pain, etc. The establishment of a natural medicine chest at home, accompanied by a wee bit of instruction, would reduce health care costs by trillions of dollars."

Disclaimers:

*The types of essential oils we recommend are therapeutic-grade essential oils. Cheap, health food store oils are perfume-grade or food-grade at best, won't give you therapeutic results, and may even cause damage if taken internally.*

**Please use wisdom when you or your child has a health concern. We are not suggesting that all Western medical treatments should be ignored and that essential oils will cure everyone of every thing.

It has been my experience (and the experience of many others as well) that I have been able to ween off of the drugs I used to be on, replace them with essential oils, and have been able to avoid drugs altogether in many instances because of the oils (while getting better results with my health).

There may, however, be some instances where a drug might be the best option for someone. While we encourage you to consider alternatives to pharmaceuticals, we do not assume liability for your health choices.**
