After years in the medical field, Joanie became disenchanted with modern medicine. While she understands that pharmaceuticals have their place, she also believes that our culture over uses them and often, they cause more problems than they fix. The potential side effects of some medications can require additional medications and then it’s a never ending battle to counteract all of these side effects. She watched as family members and friends struggled with and subjected themselves to toxic chemicals all in the name of health. But then, one day, she discovered the healing powers of essential oils.
MyFamilyEssentials.com is dedicated to educating others about earth’s original pharmacy (oil extracts from plants) and how to incorporate oils into every day healing. From using Lavender to soothe a colicky baby to multiple oil combinations to give relief to sufferers of Rheumatoid Arthritis, this is her way of sharing the message: you don’t have to rely solely on chemical solutions. Modern medicine has value, but nature often produces the best remedy.
