Exploring Clinical Applications of Essential Oils Dr. Paul Winterton, MD We have all experienced joint pain and muscle aches regardless of our age and activity level. The causes range from simple aches following exercise to debilitating pain from a serious accident, surgery, or chronic illness. Alleviating these symptoms and treating the source of pain is sometimes a challenge for the practicing orthopedic surgeon. In addition to desiring confirmation of a particular diagnosis and treatment plan, patients that present following a slip and fall, or with chronic bone and joint illness are often desperate for relief of their pain and stiffness. Aromatic compounds, also known as essential oils, have become a frontline therapeutic modality for me in my practice for years now. Their powerful anti-inflammatory effects can be utilized in many athletic and clinical settings. Whether at the finish line of a marathon or triathlon, or in the clinic seeing patients for injuries, preoperative evaluation, or postoperative follow-up, essential oils are a mainstay of treatment in my orthopedic practice. When patients arrive at my clinic, they are immediately introduced to oils as they inhale the ultrasonically diffused aromatic compounds in my lobby and every exam room. The antiviral and antiseptic properties of essential oils have been demonstrated in many laboratories and provide excellent cold, flu, and infection prevention for my patients and employees. In the exam room, every patient is given a therapeutic warm, moist towel compress with essential oils, followed by application of anti-inflammatory rub at the point of tenderness or post-operative incision site. I also recommend capsules of essential oil preparations to take internally. In the locker room or on the field, I instruct the chiropractic physicians, physical therapists and athletic trainers in application of anti-inflammatory essential oil rubs. They have also utilized ultrasonic(phonophoresis) and electronic(Iontophoresis) devices during massage to improve penetration, absorption, and distribution of the essential oils. The symptomatic relief has been wonderful for my patients, and certainly reflects well on me as their physician. Finally, patients can treat themselves and family with aromatic compounds as they become acquainted and comfortable with their topical, aromatically diffused, and internal applications. Use of essential oils in the home, in tandem with healthy lifestyles, can be a powerful preventive measure to avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency room or clinic. The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® oils procured and distributed by dōTERRA are the only aromatic compounds that I’m comfortable prescribing as a physician trained in the western medical tradition. Every product has been harvested from its unique environment, meticulously processed and analyzed for its therapeutic purity and potency. This is extremely important to me as a physician. We all trust manufacturers of traditional FDA approved Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen that every pill in the bottle has the same concentration of medicine. Likewise, every time a patient leaves my clinic with a sample of oil, I have to know that the purity and potency is the same in every vial. I look forward to working more closely with my musculoskeletal colleagues regarding the clinical applications of essential oils and hope to expand their use at home, on the field, in the clinic, and in the operating room. Paul W. Winterton is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon. He earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 1993 and completed his Orthopedic Surgical Residency at the Mayo Clinic in 1998. Following residency, he completed two fellowships at The Institute For Bone and Joint Disorders in shoulder and knee reconstructive surgery/sports medicine, as well as foot and ankle reconstruction in Phoenix, Arizona.

• Researcher Dr Katherine Tucker studied more than 1,000 elders receiving home care. It was found that those elders who did have adequate vitamin D scored far better on cognitive tests than those in the deficient and insufficient vitamin D categories, particularly on measures of executive performance, which included cognitive flexibility, perceptual complexity, and reasoning.
How to make margarine • Take the cheapest, mass produced vegetables to a refinery. • Put them through a high-pressure, high-heat pressing machine to extract the oil. • Add a petroleum-based solvent tchemically remove every last drop. • Put the oil into a high-temperature, high-pressure reactor then pump Hydrogen into it. • Now, the oil turns solid and grows to around 3 times its size. • Emulsifiers are added to give it a butter-like consistency. • Since the oil is delicate, it is now damaged from being heated so many times. It is also rancid with a foul smell. Now, it is deodorized by being once again heated to remove the odour. • By this stage, it is an unappetizing grey colour which is bleached to become white. • Dyes are then added to make it resemblea buttery yellow colour. • Next, flavouring is added to make it taste like butter. • Finally, it's packaged and sent to the supermarket as a health food.
Renewed emphasis has now been placed on diet, particularly fats, as a trigger to the onset of MS. The CNS, that is the brain and spinal cord, is predominately fat. The type of fat that is incorporated into the cells that make up the CNS depends on what we eat. There is now evidence that shows that the cell membranes of people who eat predominantly saturated fats are different from those who eat predominately mono- and poly-unsaturated diets. Importantly, because of the different chemical properties of the fats, that is, their respective melting points, the cell membranes of people who consume mainly unsaturated fats are more fluid and pliable than those who consume saturated fats. If you eat mainly saturated fats your cell membranes are more rigid and inflexible, and more prone to degenerative changes.4 It is known that saturated fat competes with unsaturated fats for uptake into cell membranes and in biological pathways. Saturated fat is tough; it usually wins in these contests, and this seems to be especially so for people with MS. With the increasing knowledge about fats today, we now know that omega-3 fatty acids work to suppress immune system disorders and omega-6s seem to worsen them. MS is infrequent in places where fish (high in omega-3s) is eaten a lot.
