Limitations of this information and liability
When you read anything on this website, you must remember that I'm not a doctor, nor am I a trained healthcare professional. The information on this website is for informational purposes only, and you should never rely solely on the information here if you have any serious healthcare needs (i.e.: find a trained professional). You remain responsible for what you do with this information, determining for yourself what is right or wrong for you.
Since I'm not a licensed physician and can't diagnose or prescribe for you, any application of the information on this site constitutes the explicit waiver of any liability on my part.
The Food & Drug Administration and DSHEA
What you will not find on this website:
There is a wealth of information about essential oils and their properties that would be of real benefit to you, but the FDA's current interpretation of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 doesn't permit me to present it to you here. It has nothing to do with safety or science; it's about protecting the monopoly of the health industry cartel.
For that reason, much of the information on this site — especially about individual oils and their uses — is limited to vague stock phrases that offer you little real information. I hate that, but have no other option in the present environment.
So please bear in mind that, if you're looking for some specific information about the health-promoting properties of essential oils and can't find it here, it's quite likely a matter of this censorship. I'm sorry for that, but would be willing to try to answer your questions on an individual basis.
However, for the best information available anywhere, you should check out the Essential Oils Desk Reference.
As required by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, I must state clearly that the information on this website has not been evaluated by the FDA, and the products referred to are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
That said, I would be remiss if I failed to point out that FDA-approved medications, taken as prescribed by your doctor, are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. According to some sources, they are the leading cause of death, killing more people every year than cancer or heart disease. These FDA-approved medications, and the FDA-evaluated statements that go with them, are also responsible for about 40% of all hospital occupancy and the untold misery of millions.
So, the mere fact that the FDA has not approved the information or products on this website is no cause for alarm or uncertainty. Approval means nothing related to safety and the products and information on this website are outside the scope of the FDA's regulatory reach.
The Real Benefits
It's been the experience of many, both in professional, clinical settings and in personal use, that the information and products presented here have truly amazing health benefits.
Take me, for example.
A few years ago, I was so severely disabled, any thought of doing what I'm doing right now would have been a very wild dream. In terms of work, I was functional for only a few days a year. Now, I am able to start my own business. I've done more since its start-up date (August 22, 2000) than I had in the previous 25 years. (You can learn more about this here.)
A Happy Coincidence
While, in compliance of FDA regulations, I must state that the products I've used are really intended for entertainment purposes only, I am intrigued by the coincidental spontaneous remission of my disabling condition when I began using therapeutic-grade essential oils, taking the right nutritional supplements and applying the information that you'll find on this website. While it would not, in any way, offer any scientific proof of the benefits of this, I would still be very interested in seeing the statistical probability of the coincidental experiences of spontaneous remissions noted in the lives of myself and so many others, relative to the proper use of these products.
