Exploiting elaborate and aggressive marketing strategies, Big Pharma has seized hundreds of billions of dollars over the last several decades by creating customers instead of cures. Their unlimited and entrenched influence among medical schools, governments, medical professionals, regulatory bodies, policymakers, and consumers has created a population dependent on drugs to feel good. Drugs are not the only answer to health! A mounting body of evidence suggests that essential oils work by influencing some of the same pathways and mechanisms of action as drugs, without the harsh side effects. Join Dr. Scott A. Johnson as he reveals secrets that Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know about essential oils and arms you with the knowledge to make informed health-care decisions. In his book, What Big Pharma Doesn’t Want You to Know About Essential Oils, Dr. Johnson exposes secrets such as:
> essential oils that reduce inflammation and pain by inhibiting multiple proinflammatory pathways, including one that works as well as the prescription NSAID indomethacin;
> an essential oil that reduces cholesterol as effectively as the prescription drug ezetimibe;
> how to balance brain chemicals vital to a positive mood, and an essential oil that beat Prozac in a head-to-head comparison;
> how essential oils can lower blood pressure by inhibiting ACE activity and acting as a calcium channel blocker like drugs designed for the same purpose;
> essential oils that work with the cells to prevent allergic reactions;
> how three essential oils influence neurotransmitter activity to promote restful sleep without resorting to addictive sleep aids;
> and much, much more.
