In 2009, the increase of prescription drug use among children was nearly four times higher than in the overall population, making children the leading growth demographic for the drug industry. Reuters reports:“Over the past nine years, the most substantial increases in the medicating of children were seen in drugs for conditions not typically associated with them, such as for type 2 diabetes and antipsychotics … Some long-standing childhood maladies also saw large increases, such as asthma.”
Todays children are expected to die 5 years younger than their parents. Just pick up any newspaper or magazine and you will see a growing concern for our children and their health.
All of these conditions can be greatly improved by diet and natural remedies. As we learn more about nutritional healing and essential oils, our children and grandchildren will benefit. Already, we are seeing great results in many of our families.
I thought you would enjoy hearing from a few of our own young ones to see how natural healing can be embraced and enjoyed. While we as adults are relearning good nutrition and discovering essential oils, our children and grandchildren can grow up with this knowledge and be a beacon of hope to their peers suffering from declining health.
Here are some other stories shared with me: “One day my 22-month-old niece sat next to me at the dining room table and showed me her feet and said “I want some on feet.” Not knowing what she was referring to at first I asked what she meant. She looked at my oils on the table and I figured out she wanted oils on her feet! “You want oils on your feet?” I asked her. “Yeah,” my niece sweetly replied. She must have remembered the few times I put them on her and loved them so much she wanted more.”
Another woman was listening to a talk on CD by Gary Young, and her grade school aged son said he thought it was so cool that essential oils could support healthy living. He listened to the whole CD with her and they had a great conversation as he thought the information was very interesting.
It is also fun to hear of children drinking green smoothies and loving them. My grandsons love to help run the blender to make the smoothies.
Let’s be grateful that we have been introduced to such incredible healing wisdom and be willing to share this with others. You can be the one to make a difference in the lives of the families you know. Don’t be selfish. For the sake of the children, let others know there are effective options for supporting good health available to them. We can transform our culture, and make a healthier world for our children.
