What is Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Author: Anthony William the Medical Medium

Over 80% of us will experience adrenal fatigue multiple times over our lives. It’s an epidemic that most people have no idea exists. The few that are aware don’t fully understand its root cause or how to heal from it. This isn’t surprising given that medical science and research are still in the dark about this prevalent condition. It will be decades before science begins to reflect the information I am sharing with you today about how the adrenals function. Even then, science will only know a part of the picture.

Kunzea Secrets

Kunzea - Australia Essential Oils and Botanical Gifts

Kunzea Secrets

Dr. Pénoël points out that in terms of composition, Kunzea contains a large amount of ?-pinene in comparison to 1,8 cineole, which is relatively rare in plants of the Myrtaceae family. Most importantly in Kunzea, there are five different sesquiterpene compounds, which is quite unusual: globulol, viridiflorol, spathulenol, ledol and bicyclogermacrene.

Such sesquiterpene compounds are being seen as important, especially whenever inflammatory reactions need to be curbed and moderated (but not negatively suppressed).

Dr. Pénoël has used Kunzea oil with some patients both topically and through ingestion of small amounts in helping to reduce inflammatory responses in cases of Crohn’s disease and the after-effects of radiotherapy treatments with good results.

There are further potential therapeutic indications for Kunzea essential oil. Various case histories and anecdotal reports suggest a variety of uses.

Kunzea is reported to have good pain-relieving properties, useful for muscular, tendon and joint injuries. In this case, Kunzea can be used by itself or used in combination with essential oils such as Rosemary (camphor-type), Basil (methyl chavicol-type) and Peppermint.

Kunzea has also shown results in relieving the pain of headaches and insect bites, such as from mosquitoes and spiders. It can be suggested to use a combination of equal amounts of Kunzea and Peppermint oil for these conditions. Kunzea by itself or perhaps combined with True Lavender oil, can be useful for application to small wounds and minor burns.

There have been some good results in Kunzea helping to relieve the intense pain of gout, where uric acid deposits (especially in joints of the toes) cause intense inflammation. In this case, Kunzea oil has been applied neat a number of times per day to the affected joints. A number of users have reported developing a healing rash, with uric acid being excreted through the skin. The Kunzea oil helps to control any itching of the rash.

If Kunzea oil is applied to the area after the trauma and before bruising has started or has only just begun, the development of the bruise can be prevented. Another excellent oil to prevent and relieve bruising is that of Italian Everlasting (Helichrysm italicum). Kunzea or both oils can be added at a 10% or higher concentration to Arnica infused oil (Arnica Montana flowers infused in vegetable oil) and perhaps Calophyllum oil (Calophyllum inophyllum). Both of these vegetable oils very useful in breaking up the leaked blood that causes the discoloration seen in bruises and sprains and speeds healing.

Kunzea oil has had positive results in the treatment of rashes, skin irritations, eczema and acne. Kunzea oil has been found to be non-irritant and generally is well tolerated even when used undiluted on the skin. However, in the case of eczema and allergic dermatitis, it is always recommended to test a small amount of any essential oil, as skin sensitivity is always a possibility in these conditions. This can be from a 1% to 10% concentration of an essential oil in a base (vegetable oil is fine) for this purpose.

With eczema and other skin irritations, I would recommend combining Kunzea with essential oils and extracts such as German Chamomile, Calendula carbon dioxide extract and Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum).

Kunzea, with its high content of ?-pinene and some 1,8 cineole, is useful in inhalations for relieving congestion in sinus and respiratory complaints. Kunzea can be combined with oils such as Australian Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) and Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) to both address congestion and any infection present.

Kunzea oil has been tested for its effectiveness against a number of disease-causing bacteria. Kunzea is particularly effective against Staphylococcus aureus, including the MRSA variety (multiple antibiotic resistant), in a tested concentration as low as 0.16%.

Another use of the anti-inflammatory effects of Kunzea oil is reported by a Dr. Alan Lane, a physician who practices in Latrobe, Tasmania. His testimonial follows:

“I have been surprised and somewhat delighted to find another clinical use of this essential oil. I have been using intravenous sodium ascorbate (the sodium salt of Vitamin C) in my medical practice for some twenty-five years. If given on a daily basis only four or five doses can be given. Thereafter the vein becomes so irritated that further injections have to be postponed for at least seven days, usually longer, thus delaying treatment.

In one recent case I used Kunzea oil, simply rubbing it in undiluted two or three times that day after the injection. The result was that I was able to give over two hundred consecutive daily injections with no ensuing irritation at all. The therapeutic response is surprisingly fast. With one patient the results were almost instantaneous. I have used Kunzea oil in seven cases so far, all in patients with cancer.

Oncology treatment demands many intravenous injections and the same problems arise as with sodium ascorbate. Kunzea oil gives promise of being of significant effect in routine every day oncological therapy with chemotherapeutic agents and of use in other areas of medical care.

In another condition, atopic eczema, this essential oil seems to be useful in local application to skin. In one particular case the result was very significant. It deserves further investigation.”

Hence, Kunzea oil holds promise in alleviating the pain and inflammation whenever multiple intravenous injections are required. Dr. Lane used undiluted Kunzea oil. Another option would be the use of Kunzea at a 50% concentration in 50% vegetable oil, especially Calendula Infused oil, well known for its anti-inflammatory effects.

Safety considerations:

The overall composition of Kunzea oil, with a low content of 1,8 cineole, sees it as a safe, non-toxic essential oil for general use. There is no contraindication for the use of Kunzea oil during pregnancy at common dosages.

It is well tolerated on the skin, even with undiluted use. As with all essential oils, keep out of reach of children and consider testing a small amount on the skin first with those with eczema and other skin sensitivities.

In summary, Kunzea is a new and unique essential oil that shows much promise, particularly in the areas of relieving pain and inflammation.

Energetics, Emotions & Chakras

Australian Essential oils believe for health and well-being it is very important to have an understanding of our innate Body’s Energy System.  In many spiritual and healing disciplines, and in the world of complementary medicine the word Chakra pops up quite a bit. That’s fine if you know its meaning; not so great, and I must say pretty confusing, if you don’t.

The 7 Chakras are the energy centres in our body in which energy flows through.

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy.

The chakras spin and energy flows through them. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency. At times this energy can become stuck or the chakra can pick up energy from an outside source. When a chakra is not balanced, it can affect that physical region of the body and also affect specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.
Within our bodies, you have seven of these major energy centres and many more minor ones.

You can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries.

They are charged and recharged through contact with the stream of cosmic energy in the atmosphere in much the same way that your home is connected to a central power source within a city – the only difference is that this cosmic energy source is free.

Imagine this, a vertical power current rather like a fluorescent tube that runs up and down the spine, from the top of the head to the base of the spine. Think of this as your main source of energy. The seven major chakras are in the centre of the body and are aligned with this vertical “power line. ”

Chakras connect your spiritual bodies to your physical one.

They regulate the flow of energy throughout the electrical network (meridians) that runs through the physical body. The body’s electrical system resembles the wiring in a house. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part, and it is ready for use when needed.

Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. If the body’s ‘energy system’ can not flow freely it is likely that problems will occur. The consequence of irregular energy flow may result in physical illness and discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance. They  too have their own individual frequencies and energetic properties and can be of great assistance in balancing the energetic body as well as the chakras.

The Aura

The aura is the electromagnetic (energy) field around the body, and there are 7 energy centers or vortices in the body, that are called chakras.

It is in the auric field and the chakras that our thoughts, feelings, and experiences are recorded.


Essential oils too have their own individual frequencies and energetic properties and can be of great assistance in balancing the energetic body as well as the chakras.
