Due to the insufficient funds required to perform large double-blind studies on essential oils and their effectiveness, the FDA and government will not give their approval for the science behind them or validity of their results and benefits.
You can read about how a few such studies show the effectiveness of essential oils to improve pain, headaches, neorpathies, arthritis, inflammation and more here, here, here, here, as well as why it is difficult to perform study’s on essential oils here.
So it is up to us then, the people seeking natural ways to heal ourselves, to look at all the research and data available and make up our own minds about the safest and most beneficial products to use.
Definitions of science are:
1.a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws.
2. systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.
3. systematized knowledge in general.
4.knowledge, as of facts or principles; knowledge gained by systematic study.
Now the question becomes; is a list of testimonials about one subject, enough to call the results “scientific” evidence?
Let’s think about that for a second…aren’t testimonials (truthful ones at least), a body of facts or truths systematically arranged (in this case, everyone puts the oil on their muscles the same way)through observation and experimentation?
Here’s one problem with most, if not all testimonial pages -they only present the positive feedback that promotes their theory – this is not science.
You have my word that I WILL BE POSTING ALL TESTIMONIALS, GOOD, BAD AND NEUTRAL.
Then you can deduce for yourself how successful this product and essential oils are in helping aches, pains, energy, inflammation and much more.
Of course all of the results could be placebo, which is why more complex studies must be administered to get the “facts”, but would that be better “proof” than the fact that these oils have been used for 1,000′s of years and that they are already considered to have exactly the same properties that the testimonials confirm. Ultimately that is up to you.
So this stuff really could be snake oil! Who knows!?
All I know is that I have been using essential oils for the last 10 years with myself and clients with amazing results. These same results can be found all over the internet.
As a bonus, these oils are 100% natural, safe and side-effect free, unless of course you are allergic to one of the oils or you don’t follow the directions on how to use them properly.
When I have sufficient testimonials to paint the picture of Muscle Magik’s potential, I will post them here…so far all I have are 100% satisfaction reviews…
