"Quantum physicists have confirmed the reality of the basic vibratory essence of life," wrote Dr. C. Normal Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.. "Life energy is not static; it is kinetic."
The tai chi masters and acupuncturist have known this for untold generations. They often spoke of the chi in plants, and selected herbs and foods for their patients on the basis of the electro-energy they contained.
Today, nutritionists and natural health and wellness experts agree that a key element in determining the effectiveness of any health product is how "alive" it is.
Stated another way, the amount of organic energy remaining in a natural substance, after it has been processed into product form, determines its possible therapeutic value, since it's this electro-frequency in the herbs and foods — in part — that makes them beneficial for particular ailments, or for the support of specific body systems.
The same is true of essential oils.
Oil Frequency: A key to the effectiveness of aromatherapy
When considering which essential oils to purchase and use, besides the properties of fragrance and chemical integrity, oil frequency is of vital importance. Just as you might practice something like tai chi to raise your body's energy levels — that is: your body's level of xi, or chi — using quality essential oils for your aromatherapy use will do much the same thing.
The problem is: Most essential oils produced in the world today will not have that effect on your system. They're not kinetically "alive" enough to vibrate at the frequencies that will affect the human body, restoring balance and normal function to weak body systems.
Why is this?
The reason is simple: About 98% of the essential oils produced world-wide are produced for the cosmetic/perfume or food flavoring industries. In these industries, the therapeutic effect of the oil is not a consideration; and so, the oils are produced in a manner is that is totally unsuited for oils to be ues in aromatherapy. Producers start with plant material that may not have been:
- grown under the best conditions or with the best — organic — methods,
- harvested at the ideal time, to insure the optimal content of key chemical constituents, or
- harvested on-site of the distillers.
Furthermore, producers generally use distillation methods that, while efficient and produce oils that are acceptable for the cosmetic/perfume or food flavoring industries, result in an oil that should not be used for aromatherapy. For example, they may:
- take short-cuts in their production methods, such as distilling the oils under too much pressure and at too high a temperature. This fractures the oil's delicate molecular structure, resulting is an inferior oil;
- redistill the same plant material several times, which results in a decreasing quality of oil at each distillation;
- inject chemicals into the water used for distillation which, while increasing the oil yield, results in an oil that is chemically contaminated.
- have synthetic chemicals added, either to improve the fragrance of the oil (needed because of other poor practices) or extend the oil to increase the overall yield.
As a result, these oils are effectively rendered inert — dead. Since the frequency of the oil — or, its kinetic vibration — plays such a key role in its effectiveness as a therapeutic agent, it's of vital importance to always choose oils that were produced for aromatherapy purposes.
Chaos to order: not all frequency is the same
However, frequency, per se, is not the issue. Your TV and microwave have that. The important factor is that, unlike your microwave, which has a chaotic AC movement of ions, essential oils have a harmonious DC frequency. The chaotic frequencies of your microwave have a disruptive effect on your body's functions. (I might add here that, essential oils that have been adulterated with synthetic chemicals, through poor production methods, have much the same effect on the body.) By contrast — and this is a very important constrast — CPTG®, certified-pure-therapeutic-grade essential oils help to restore and maintain your body's equilibrium.
What is frequency, and how does it impact health?
Frequency is defined as a measurable rate of electrical energy flow that is constant between any two points. Everything has electrical frequency, including essential oils; and Dr. Robert O. Becker, in his book The Body Electric, establishes that the human body has an electrical frequency, and that much about a person's health can be determined by its frequency levels.
A note of qualification:
It should be noted here that, in testing conducted elsewhere, the tools used for this frequency testing at Eastern State University have not given consistent results. Because of problems in duplicating the specific frequencies noted here, dōTERRA® no longer places much emphasis on these specific numbers.
However, the issue of body frequency is still very important. Anyone who has worked at all with tai chi, for example, understands the healing potential of raising one's level of xi.
In 1992, studies conducted at Eastern State University in Cheny, Washington, determined that the average, daytime frequency of the human body is 62-68 MHz. (A healthy body frequency is 62-72 MHz.) When a person's frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. If the frequency drops to 58 MHz, cold and flu symptoms may appear. At 55 MHz, diseases like candida can take hold. At 52 MHz, one might contract Epstein-Barr. And, at 42 MHz, cancer is a real possibility.
According to Dr. Royal R. Rife, every disease has a specific frequency. His research has demonstrated that certain frequencies can prevent the development of disease, and that others would destroy disease. Substances with higher frequency will destroy diseases of a lower frequency.
(Based on his published research, Dr. Rife has developed a machine that applies currents of specific frequencies to the body to cure a wide range of diseases. Those who have used his machines attest to their amazing effectiveness.)
Another example of the importance of body frequencies for health is Bjorn Nordenstrom. A radiologist from Stockholm, Sweden, he discovered in the early 1980s that, by putting an electrode inside a tumor and running a milliamp of DC current through the electrode, he could dissolve the cancer tumor and stop its growth. He also found that the human body had electropositive and electronegative energy fields — something any tai chi master could tell you.
Why is this important?
The effect of outside influences on body frequency
The study of frequencies raises an important question concerning the frequencies of substances we eat, breath and absorb — or, of our whole environment, for that matter. Based on his studies, Nikola Tesla said that, if we could eliminate certain outside frequencies that interfered in our bodies, we would have greater resistance toward disease. Many pollutants, for example, lower healthy frequency. [Editor's note: Many other pollutants create a chaotic frequency — a chemical "buzz" — in the body.] Processed and canned food have a frequency of zero (they are dead; killed by the processing), and can greatly diminish a person's own frequency. (Another reason to avoid fast foods.)
And then, there is coffee.
Studies have shown that, in only three seconds, merely holding a cup of coffee can lower a healthy person's frequency by eight MHz. One sip of coffee can, in the same three seconds, lower a person's frequency by 14 MHz. Without intervention, it can take about three days for that person's frequency to return to normal. However, when essential oils are inhaled, frequencies return to normal within 21 seconds.
How is this possible?
Because, clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any known natural substance. They start at 52 MHz and go as high as 320 MHz — the frequency of rose oil. (For purposes of comparison, fresh produce has up to 15 MHz, dry herbs from 12 to 22 MHz, and fresh herbs from 20 to 27 MHz.) The frequencies of essential oils have the ability to help restore and/or maintain a person's own frequency for optimal health, creating an environment in which microbes — bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc. — can't live.
What's more, essential oils have been demonstrated to improve a person's mental and emotional state. A negative mental state can lower a person's frequency by 10 MHz, while a positive mental attitude can raise it 10-15 MHz.
And, because each oil has a specific frequency, and our organs and body systems and the nutrients needed to maintain optimum health each have their specific frequencies, the oil's electrical affinity to these components of our bodies will enhance and support these organs and body systems, and will aid in the assimilation of nutrients.
Conclusion: Choosing an essential oil that is kinetically alive
The frequency of an essential oil, along with its fragrance and chemistry, plays an integral part of its therapeutic effect. The kinetic "life" in a CPTG®, certified-pure-therapeutic-grade essential oil has the ability to raise the level of a person's xi, enhancing health and well-being.
However, most essential oils on the market today are essentially inert. They've been processed in a manner that has effectively kills them, rendering them therapeutically ineffective. For several years now, dōTERRA® Essential Oils has guaranteed you the full benefits of a truly CPTG®, certified-pure-therapeutic-grade essential oil.
For your aromatherapy needs, don't settle for just a pleasant fragrance. Add the dynamic of essential oils that are kinetically alive.
