Frankincense: Cancer & Seizures

Fraankincense:When I feel a seizure coming on, I smell frankincense and can sometimes stop the seizure before it starts others say 2 drops under the tongue twice a day. I carry it Frankincense Essential Oil with me everywhere I go.” Sarah T Seizures can happen anywhere, anytime, and sometimes without notice. A seizure is a sudden malfunction in the brain that causes someone to collapse, convulse, or have another temporary disturbance of normal brain function, often with a loss or change of consciousness. Many things can cause seizures, low blood sugar, head injury, fever, and drug overdose are just a few. Frankincense essential oil is the oil of choice for helping with seizures. It aids the oxygenation of the blood going to the brain. When the brain is able to absorb more oxygen, healing increases. The key to frankincense essential oil’s success is its molecular makeup. The make-up includes Sesquiterpenes which can cross the blood/brain barrier. Frankincense also provides a calming and centering effect on the brain. Many have found that Frankincense essential oil has been a great help with seizures. Tradition tells us that the magi (three wise men) gave the infant King of Israel gifts of gold to honor his royalty, frankincense as a perfume and myrrh for anointing oil. Although there probably is some truth to this, other sources claim that the wise men from the Far East were actually being more practical by giving the baby Jesus these precious, costly essential oils that could double up as potential medical remedies.
