Essential oils have been used throughout history for their medicinal, therapeutic and aromatic benefits. Essential oils are the highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants. They are the essence, or in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) terms, the “jing,” of the plant. They are distilled from various types and parts of botanicals -- from flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, seeds and bark. They are extremely concentrated, up to 70x stronger than herbs.
The uses for essential oils are numerous and diverse. They:

More than 70 percent of patients in any general practice suffer from functional disturbances. Simply speaking, a functional disturbance occurs when no specific tissue or organ damage can be identified by conventional lab work or other pathological diagnostics, yet the patient still experiences a myriad of symptoms.
Functional medicine helps detect and identify these energetic and regulatory disturbances. Functional disturbances can be detected early. Disease does not begin with pathology, but with a preclinical phase. Functional disturbances occur when a living organism can no longer compensate adequately for changes in the environment. Environmental changes include both internal conditions of the body and external circumstances.
Ideally, it would make good sense to assess a patient using functional evaluation methods and imprinting applications. Functional medicine is intended to bridge the existing diagnostic and therapeutic gaps. Backed by over 40 years of research, this technology clearly continues to deliver life-changing results.
Economically, considerable time and substantial amounts of money could be saved simply by taking advantage of the benefits of this powerful technology in the emerging field of functional medicine. Re-establishing balance to the energetic pathways (that run through all organs, glands, and tissues) may hold the key to restoring and maintaining optimum health. This approach is not looking for any particular disease state, and therefore no claims of diagnosis or treatment can be made.
