The Truth About Cancer And Essential Oils: What Oncologists Won't Tell You

Many different cultures have been using essential oils since ancient times. They are viewed as suggested cures for many diseases and illnesses, including cancer. Americans in the past have used essential oils for their scents. Now “up to 75% of people in the United States use complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) on a regular basis, and many of these people do so in order to fight cancer.” (source) With more people looking to essential oils for cancer treatments, research needs to back-up these claims. Researchers have just begun to suggest that essential oils may aid in the treatment of cancer. A study about frequencies produced by the body and essential oils show the positive impact of these liquid cures. According to the immunologist, Mahmoud Suhail “Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted.” Essential oils help by reverting the DNA code back. (source)

Essential Oils and Body Frequencies

dreamstime_s_55299215 Bruce Tainio, of Tainio Technology and head of the Department of Agriculture at Eastern Washington University, uses a Calibrated Frequency Monitor (CFM) to study the frequencies of bodies and essential oils. Healthy bodies frequencies range between 62 and 78 MHZ, while a body with disease starts at 58MHZ. It is suggested that high frequency substances can combat low frequency illnesses. Several popular essential oils were studied for their frequencies. Of the ones studied, their frequencies ranged from 52-320MHZ.
  • Lavender 118 MHZ
  • Rose 320 MHZ
  • Peppermint 78 MHZ
  • Helichrysum 181 MHZ
  • Frankincense 147 MHZ
  • Myrrh 105 MHZ
  • German Camomile 105 MHZ
  • Ravensara 134 MHZ
  • Sandalwood 96 MHZ
  • Angelica 85 MHZ
  • Juniper 98 MHZ
Among the frequencies helping the body, essential oils are also beneficial in many other ways. They contain anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties along with numerous nutrients. Cinnamon, thyme, chamomile, and jasmine essential oils are the best at killing breast cancer. Chamomile destroys 93% of cancer cells in vitro while. thyme essential oil destroys 97%. (source)


shutterstock_223136038 Frankincense has been widely used in the treatment of cancers. “Frankincense is capable of separating the cancerous cell’s brain- the nucleus- from its body-the cytoplasm, which disables the nucleus from creating damaged DNA codes,” (source). Chemotherapy destroys both the good and bad cells around the affected tumor, frankincense essential oil attacks the infected cells while leaving the healthy ones alone.

Only use 100% Therapeutic grade essential oils from a reputable dealer. Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil like coconut oil. (Many companies have the dilution rate on the bottle.) Some essential oils can create sensitivities, so test a small area before using. Discuss the use of essential oils with a doctor before using them for any illness, especially something as serious as cancer. Be advised that everyone is different, and what works for some may not be suitable for you. Be safe and healthy! (h/t: Healthy Food House)
