Internal Use of Essential Oils: Natural Medicine’s Next Frontier

Presented by Lise Alschuler, ND

Recognized for their powerful therapeutic properties, essential oils have been used traditionally for millennia. Using a modern scientific approach, 100% pure, specialized, concentrated essential plant oils have now been developed for internal use. Unlike essential oils used for massage and aromatherapy, these plant oils are tested and “fingerprinted” based on specific molecular makeup, species, marker compounds, purity and safety for internal medicinal use. The extraordinary potency of these tested plant oils allows for relatively small doses, but very big health benefits. Dr. Lise Alschuler, a naturopathic oncologist, will discuss and share her insights into utilizing these specialized, concentrated essential oils into your practice.

Treating the Depressed Patient

Presented by Cheryl Myers

Diagnosing depression is a science and an art. Your patient may present with classic depressive symptoms, or symptoms completely unrelated to mood. Some patients with a previously diagnosed depression may approach you because prescription drugs failed to work, or the side effects caused them to discontinue their use. Whatever their history, accepting a diagnosis of depression is a huge hurdle for many patients. Often they may feel they have only the choice of taking prescription drugs that have significant side effects or continuing to live in misery. But there are natural products that are even more effective than these drugs and can literally change lives! Join integrative medicine expert, Cheryl Myers, as she shares new studies on highly effective plants for depression and stress.
