The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils
The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils: The Science of Advanced Aromatherapy, by Kurt Schnaubelt, Ph.D. In this authoritative and beautifully illustrated book, author Kurt Schnaubelt presents simple recipes and protocols for treating and preventing common ailments, such as colds, flu, herpes, and candida, as well as pain management and immune support. He shows how essential oils can be used to ameliorate the side effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Excerpt from the back cover: "Exploring science's new biological understanding of essential oils and their advantages over synthetic drugs, renowned aromatherapist Kurt Schnaubelt reveals how the effectiveness of essential oil treatments stems from our common biochemical and cellular heritage with plants. He explains how essential oils preserve a plant's complex natural life-supporting and immune-building qualities, developed through millions of years of interaction with animals and humans. Reviewing recent research in molecular, cellular, and evolutionary biology, he shows how the multilayered activity of plant essences helps maintain the integrity of our genetic code -- the reason why pathogens cannot develop resistance toward essential oils as they do with antibiotics and antivirals -- making essential oils a more effective and sustainable form of treatment for a variety of health problems." Author Kurt Schnaubelt holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry, and is founder and scientific director of Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in San Francisco. He is also author of Advanced Aromatherapy and Medical Aromatherapy.
