Aromatherapy vs MRSA
Antimicrobial essential oils to combat bacterial infection, including the superbug
Addressing the challenge of serious infection, especially MRSA, in hospitals, in the community, and in animals, Maggie Tisserand focuses on the scientifically proven effects of antibacterial essential oils, and their usefulness in managing infection, including the 'superbug'. She profiles the key essential oils - tea tree, manuka and thyme - covering everything from habitat, chemistry and commercial uses to the latest scientific research that proves their effectiveness against bacterial infection, and how they should be used. She also includes information about other methods that have been shown to help with the management of acute infection, including allicin from garlic, silver, manuka honey and phage therapy.
Breaking new ground in the field of essential oils, this scientifically based but accessible book will be essential reading for aromatherapists, health professionals and everyone interested in effective ways in which to combat infection and stay healthy. With the increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria and the danger of bacteria staying alive on surfaces and clothing, it is in the interests of every therapist and practitioner to be aware of these threats and instigate preventative measures.
Maggie Tisserand is an internationally recognized expert on the uses of essential oils with MRSA. Her comprehensive book is an extraordinary resource for anyone suffering with MRSA and offers vital information for health professionals worldwide. Maggie has successfully given us organized and practical information on how people can protect themselves against MRSA. The book is an accessible, in depth compendium of crucial information. – Andrea Butje is the founder of Aromahead Institute, an innovative online school of essential oils, www.aromahead.com
