Frankincense Oil: Using frankincense oil for Lou Gehrig's Disease July 21 2014
Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative condition that affects nerve cells within the brain and the spinal cord. The particular nerve cells affected are the motor neuron cells that control the voluntary muscles. ALS essentially causes a person to lose control of certain functions, making it increasingly more difficult to perform ordinary bodily movements and functions. The cause of ALS is generally unknown, though in a small percentage of cases, it can be traced to a genetic predisposition.
Frankincense oil (Boswellia serrata) aids in oxygenation of blood to the brain, and this effect can aid in oxygen absorption to deteriorating cells, and as a result, the ability of the brain to function, process and also heal. Frankincense oil also contains susquepertines, which have the ability to go beyond the blood/brain barrier act to increase oxygenation of the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain, allowing for ideal balance of emotion-regulating and memory-stimulating hormones.
How to use frankincense oil for Lou Gehrig's disease:
Diffuse frankincense oil in a steam vaporizer throughout the day. The diffusion of the oil creates a warm and invigorating scent that rouses the mind and allows for an increased ability to retain and utilize information.
For use topically, add a few drops to an unscented carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) or lotion and rub on any desired part of the body.
Add a few drops to the bridge of the nose, behind the ears, on the back of the neck, to reflex points such as the inside of the wrists, between the toes and on the bottoms of feet.
For a quick brain boost, place a few drops on palms or a handkerchief, rub together, hold to nose and mouth, and breathe in deeply.
Add 10 drops to a warm bath or shower, both morning and night.
