    Hi KG,
    It seems I am now developing diabetes. :( Can balancing the wood element help with that?

  • Lynn

    Hi KG,
    I really appreciate being able to click on the beneficial oils listed and accessing the interesting information you provide. From this series, I feel like I am building a solid foundation for my education in Aromatherapy!

  • christiane

    And yes I would most definitely want to know more about reversing it. Not sure I can find a good integrative health practitioner here where I am. I’m not so confident in the expertise of the few who are around.

  • christiane

    thanks for this reassuring reply, KG. I totally hear what you are saying. Much appreciated. xo

    Hi Christiane, so sorry to hear you’ve signs of developing diabetes. The research clearly show that the onset of Adult Type II Diabetes can be completely reversed. Perhaps I will post a future blog that covers the holistic methods of reversing Adult Type II Diabetes if there’s enough interest. Essential oils to balance wood element can certainly play an important role in your treatment plan. A synergistic aromatherapy formula for balancing the wood element would be most effective as it has a more broad spectrum application. Additionally you may wish to balance your earth element to support the wood element. Vetiver would be an ideal earth element oil for you, or an earth element synergy formula. I’d like to add that it’s been my experience in the holistic treatment of Type II Diabetes that it is related to an inability to enjoy the sweetness in life, unmet longing, disappointment and sorrow. Affirmation to use when inhaling your essential oil: “I allow myself to enjoy the sweetness of this moment.” It’s a complicated matter to balance the Elements when you’ve reached the stage of imbalance where you’re manifesting symptoms of Type II Diabetes. I suggest you consider working directly with an integrative health care practitioner to help you through the process. Hope this helps, Christiane. Wishing you all the best! :)
