Essential oils are my primary modality of choice. Naturopaths all vary in what they prefer to use but I am very enamored of using aromatherapy and essential oils.
We know all the scary stuff that has been said about using essential oils with animals but as we (Dr. Jeannie Thomason and I) state in the audio series we created initially for our podcast which are now being used in our courses, when you use a true therapeutic quality (such as those by Young Living) the wellness benefits are so amazing and incredible that fear can’t abide with the use of these Eos with animals or ourselves.
Often we state that there are determining factors on whether or not a body will remain healthy or be primed for illness and disease. An understanding of how the body works in a beautiful synergy is necessary but in order to keep things simple we can state that to be healthy we and our mammals need to have:
1. A balance of 80% good intestinal flora (probiotics) and 20% bad bacteria. Keep in mind that a good portion of the innate immune system is housed in the intestines. It also resides in the mucus membranes, lungs, lymph system, etc. It is not a separate organ or isolated but innate throughout the body.
2. A balance of 80% alkaline and 20% acid. Just because a food is acidic however does not mean it will remain acidic in the body. Animals were meant to eat according to their species, not processed foods in bags or cans. By feeding a species appropriate RAW diet for all animals, the proper balance of intestinal flora and alkalinity remain constant and in proper balance.
3. Now we get to frequencies. Every living thing has a frequency, but so do mandmade things such as cell phones, computers, clocks, etc. D. Gary Young, Founder of Young Living, states, “Frequency is defined as a measurable rate of electrical energy flow that is constant between any two points.
Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology, built the first frequency monitor in the world. Tainio has determined that the average frequency of the human body during the daytime is 62-68 mhz. (A healthy body frequency is 62-72 mhz.) When frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. If the frequency drops to 58 mhz, cold and flu symptoms appear, at 55 mhz, diseases like Candida take hold, at 52 mhz, Epstein Bar and at 42 mhz, cancer.
The wonderful thing about therapeutic essential oils is that they can keep the body at the proper frequencies. According to Gary Young, “Measuring in hertz, we found that processed/canned food had a zero Hz frequency, fresh produce had up to 15 Hz, dry herbs from 12-22 Hz, and fresh herbs from 20-27 Hz. Essential oils started at 52 Hz and went as high as 320 Hz, which is the frequency of rose oil. A healthy body, from head to foot, typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 Hz, while disease begins at 58 Hz< . Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live. I believe that the chemistry and frequencies of essential oils have the ability to help man maintain the optimal frequency to the extent that disease cannot exist.”
Many folks may not know that the manmade devices such as computers, cell phones, microchips, and so on also as I stated previously have a frequency. But these frequencies are artificial and have a negative effect on people, animals and plants. Not a negative ion effect (which is healthy) but a positive ion effect which is detrimental to overall and long-term health in people, animals and plants.
Air is electrically charged, which means it contains in definite proportions, positively charged molecules (positive ions) and negatively charge molecules (negative ions). Scientific research has shown that their balance is required to create a good mood. Computers screens, air-conditioning, and TV sets are sources of surplus positive ions in the air. These devices make an electrical smog that can lead to bad moods, weakness and sleeplessness. We must add negative ions to the atmosphere to achieve a balance in the air and neutralize the electrical smog around our homes and work places.” ~Dawn Slicker
Therapeutic essential oils produce negative ions. They are loaded with minerals and amino acids. They oxygenate the blood. They help keep the body’s terrain in the balances mentioned above for optimal health in conjunction with the proper species raw diet.

I have used these essential oils with great benefits for myself, my dogs, and my family as well as with my clients. While they are not meant to be a panacea, as I certainly do incorporate other modalities into my life as well as with my own dogs, essential oils are my preference and first resort as wellness and immune system support*. Of course I am not referring to store purchased essential oils because this is an unregulated industry and because of that, we must do our due diligence in finding oils that will heal rather than cause harm as many can and do. So I stick with those that have worked well for me.
The scope of this topic is so vast it is best to take the time to do some research on your own if you desire to know this topic in depth. I do hope this article teases you enough to want to investigate this intriguing topic on frequencies and negative ions as well as essential oils. Many people are using essential oils very effectively with their animals, including but not limited to animal naturopaths, animal massage practitioners, holistic veterinarians, etc., and with great success!
