Below is a link to a CBS news story about how Young Living oils and other non traditional forms of therapy are helping cancer patients. Currently, two hospitals, UCLA & Beth Israel, have partnered with the Urban Zen Institute. Urban Zen trains nurses in aromatherapy and enlists other professional to use alternative therapies like aromatherapy, massage and yoga to help cancer patients deal with stress, pain, nausea, insomnia and constipation. Urban Zen does not use just any essential oils – they only use Young Living Essential Oils. Peace & Calming is mentioned in the video and it is a great oil to use to ease stress and anxiety. I like to use Peace & Calming at night if I can’t sleep either on myself or on my kids. I have also used it when I feel stressed or when my kids are cranky. It is one of our must have oils.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the video either in the comments below or on my facebook page. Have you used any alternative therapies when dealing with an illness? Let us know what worked for you.
