Bacteria, Mold, and Viruses

When a resistant strain of pathogenic bacteria results, people get infected and allopathic medicine has no remedy. People so afflicted can die - and often do - or suffer. Drug companies address this problem by developing stronger and stronger antibiotics and antimicrobial agents. Unfortunately, these pharmaceuticals are also harmful to people, even potentially deadly.

For example, Vancomycin (which is strong enough to kill the patient) was a powerful antibiotic developed to attack resistant strains of bacteria. When prescribed, doctors could only hope that the bacteria within the patient would die before the patient did. Now there are Vacomycin-resistant bacteria, making that antibiotic no longer effective.

Antibiotics and antibacterial agents are simple compounds or simple mixtures of a few compounds. Every batch of a particular antibotic or antibacterial agent is identical to the previous batch. Doctors want it this way. They want today's tetracycline or penicllin to be exactly the same as yesterday's and tomorrow's so that the product can be patented. This consistency of product, along with their simplicity, is why bacteria can develop resistance such that their offspring are not only immune to the drug, but are even more virulent and toxic to humans.


Synthetic compounds may be copies of the chemical formulas of compounds found in essential oils, but they are lacking the subtle energies contained in natural substances. Those who apply essential oils for healing soon learn that only pure, natural complete, and unadulterated oils bring about healing, while synthetic oils or oils adulterated by synthetic compounds do not.

For example, in the case of oil of wintergreen, the natural oil is harmless, with many healing properties, while the synthetic version does not heal and is, in fact, toxic. Both smell and taste like wintergreen, but they are not the same therapeutically. Furthermore, research has shown that the homeopatic properties of a substance, though chemically identical to another, are not the same energetically for synthetic compounds as they are for natural ones.

Freshly cultivated and steam distilled, the essential oils at Young Living are life-enhancing gifts from the plant kingdom, revered for centuries for their restorative properties to body, mind, and spirit. Pure essential oils have now re-emerged as a key solution to the challenges facing moderen lifestyles.

One must be sure he or she is applying therapeutic-grade oils and not perfume-grade oils, which are cheaply produced and lacking in the therapeutic properties necessary to heal and enhance one's state of wellness. Most aromatherapy companies selling oils claim that their products are "Pure," "100% Grade A," "Therapeutic," etc. But you cannot trust labels, since their verbiage is not currently regulated or legally defined. Oils with warnings on them about potential toxicity are probably not therapeutic and safe to use, except in massage, where they are diluted down to a 2-5% concentration in neutral carrier oil.

To ensure that you are getting therapeutic-grade oils, find a company that submits their oils for routine testing by independent laboratories and whose oils are from orgainic source, distilled without chemical solvents at minimum temperatures and presssures, and are bottled straight from the still with no alterations or adulterations.

The proof of an oil's quality is in its manifested benefits when you use it. While essential oils are extremely effective against pathogenic microbes, they are actually harmless to humans and are benefical to our tissues.

Essential oils do not cause the production of resistant strains of bacteria. Here is why: Essential oils are not simple. They consist of hundreds of compounds, the numbers and formulas for which are not completely known even for one species of oil. Futhermore, no two batches of essential oil are ever the same. Oils are like wines. Vintners put dates on each year's bottle of a wine because every year will produce a slightly different tasting and coloration of wine since nature never repeats itself.

The effectiveness of essential oils is permanent, which is why they, and other natural remedies, will eventually replace the synthetic pharmaceuticals of today. This means that drug-base allopathy, as practiced today, is eventually doomed to disappear because it is based on transient medicines and a flawed paradigm.


Here is what is happening in our world today.


A 1984 World Health Organization Committee report suggested that up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be the subject of excessive complaints related to indoor air quality (IAQ.

  • Heating and cooling systems in large buildings typically contain 30-70 colonies per cubic meter of Pseudomonas and 80-130 colonies of Staphylococcus bacteria.
  • In 1999 tests showed that 530 of the 604 apartments in San Francisco, Ca, had mold, including 287 with "toxigenic" fungus, which emits toxic byproducts.


"Inhalation and absorption of mycotoxins (fungal toxins or waste products) have clearlly demonstrated to be causive of human illness." (Michael R. Gary, MD)

"Bacterial strains from moldy buildings are highly potent inducers of inflammatory and cytotoxic effects. Airborne spores or micelia are causing illness through allergic or toxic mechanisms." (Robert Dales, University of Ottawa)

"Ten years ago we couldn't have said that viruses cause cancer. Now we know that 20% of world cancers are virus-induced." (Dr. Paler Besky, University of Texas)

"In just one year, 483,000 liver cancer deaths were directly attributable to Hepatitis B. and C. virus infections. (World Health Organization)

"H. pylori is now accepted as a cause of stomach cancer." (Professor Nicholas Wald, Fellow Queen Mary's School of Medicine, London)

Bacteria in your gut might make you fat. There is accumulating evidence that certain viruses may cause obesity, according to new researh published by the American Physiologic Society. The idea that microbes might cause obesity gained a foothold when the Pennington Biomidical Research Center in Lousiana created the nation's first department of viruses and obesity.


Aspergillus parasiticus is a soil-borne fungus growing on both living and decaying plant matter. This mold produces mycotoxins as metabolic by-products. One mycotoxin, aflatoxin BI has been identified as being the most toxic, carcinogenic, hepatotoxic and potentially mutagenic. Dr. Radwan Farag found that clove oil at only 6-8 parts in 10,000 totally inhibited mold and aflatoxin production.

What can we do to keep us healthy?

In 1865, British surgeon Joseph Lister, the chief surgeon at the King's College Hospital in London, became the father of modern antiseptics. He was the first to disinfect surgical rooms with eucalyptus oil vapors to stop deaths from infection. He used phenolic antiseptics for the first time during surgery to reduce the death rate from 50% to less than 3% during major surgeries.

Jean Valnet, MD, used essential oils for decades in his clinical pratices. "Essential oils are especially valuable as antiseptics because their aggression toward microbial germs is matched by their total harmlessness toward tissue."

Listerine Antiseptic was first formulated by Dr. Joseph Lawrence and Jordan Wheat Lambert in 1879 as a surgical antiseptic. It was provided to dentists for oral care in 1895 and became the first over-the-counter mouthwash sold in the United States in 1914. The first commercial surgical anti-septic solution, the original Listerine formula contained phenols and other compounds from common essential oils:

  • Thymol: (from thyme essential Oil)
  • Eucalyptol (from eucalyptus essential oil)
  • Methyl salicylate: (from wintegreen essential oil)
  • Menthol: (from peppermint essential oil)

Used for centuries as antiseptics, essential oils are still used today in oral disinfectants. A 1999 Journal of Clinical Periodontology study found that a mouthrinse with essential oils of Thyme, Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Eucalyptus oils was more effective in improving oral health than a fluoride-based antiseptic.

In 1987, in one of the most comprehensive studies conducted, scientists in Scotland identified the most powerful anti-bacterial essential oils - thyme, cinnanmon, clove, and geranium. Additionally, cinnamon, thyme and clove essential oils killed 92% of 25 diffferent gram negative and postive bacterial strains, according to research published in the International Journal of Food Microbiology.


This blend was created from research about a group of 15th-century thieves who rubbed oils on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying. When apprehended, these thieves disclosed the formula of herbs, spices, and oils they used to protect themselves in exchange for more lenient punishment.

This blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils was tested at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah in 1997. the studies showed the anti-bacterial effectiveness of the Thieves blend against airborne microorganisms. One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing Thieves for 12 minutes. Then after diffusing Thieves for a total of 20 minutes, there was a 99.3 percent reduction.

Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas Aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.99 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion of this blend. The oils are highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious and helps to protect the body against such illnesses as flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats, cuts, etc.

  • Peppermint has been added for a beautiful fragrance and is anti-infectious, antibacterial, antifungal.
  • Cinnamon Bark has a reputation for relieving discomfort during the winter season and supporting the digestive system, antibacterial, antiviral. ORAC sale of 10,340. Tiny amounts of cinnamon bark decimate e coli in only 2 hours. Cinnamon at 0.04% concentration completely stopped the growth of 35 different fungi according to food microbiology.
  • Clove Oil is nature's richets source of eugenol, and is the highest-scoring single ingredient tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale 1,078,700. Clove is also known for its immune-enhanging properties. Eugenol strongly inhibits growth of HSVI and HSVII. Eugenol significantly delayed the onset of herpetic lesion on the eyes of infected animals. Clinical studies have shown that clove and its primary phenol, eugenol, kills 60 different species of gram negative and positive bacteria 13 different fungi and 2 different viruses clove oil at very small levels - 0.06% totally inhibited toxic mold and aflaxtoxin production. The antiviral effects of eugenol strongly inhibit herpes simplex 1 and 2 and significantly delay the onset of herpetic lesions.
  • Eucalyptus Radiata: As one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils it has many health-promoting properties. This powerful essential oil contains eucalyptol as one of its major elements, which in laboratory tests has been reported as being effective against bacteria in topical applications.
  • Lemon oils with 68% d-limonene is a powerful antioxidant known for its ability to act as a natural solvent and cleanser. ORAC scale 660.
  • Rosemary is naturally energizing and may be benefical for helping restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue, it also has antibacterial, antimicrobial properties. ORAC scale 330.

In 1997 Sue Chao tested Thieves at Weber State University for its antimicrobial effects. When diffused, Thieves decimates 3 of the most common pathogenic bacteria Killed over 99% of bacteria within 20 minutes. (micrococcus luteus) The longer the oils was diffused, the greater the reduction in microorganisms. The pathogens keep dying over time.

Keep two diffusers in the home. Better a diffuser in each bedroom, or on each level. Run them on timers.

With children, you can put the essential oils on hands, apply to back, neck, feet, and etc., or just hold the child in your hands and they will receive the benifit of the oils. You can also dilute the oil for a body massage.
