"Surviving When Modern Medicine Fails" - REVIEW and GIVEAWAY!!!

Wow, wow, wow!

I have had the privilege of reading a book to share with you today that is now a MUST on my book recommendations list.  No, it's not about marriage, motherhood, or biblical womanhood.  But it is about an important topic that I bet many of you will relate to.

Perhaps you were in or near New Orleans, Louisiana, when Katrina made landfall and then the levy broke.  Perhaps you were even in Napa, California, just this week when the earthquake hit.  Or maybe you've never been part of a natural disaster, but want to be prepared if one occurs in your area.

I'm not prone to "doomsday" talk, but it sure does make me feel better to have a medicine kit stocked with oils made from natural (read: God-made) plants.

Did you know that herbs and oils used to be "traditional" medicine?  And then man decided to see if we could find a better way to treat illnesses and symptoms, thus "modern" medicine was born.  These days, if you say you use essential oils or herbs to treat something, you are considered a user of "alternative" medicine.  But really, these "medicines" are the original, not the alternative!

Today, I simply want to tell you that if you are using or considering using essential oils, THIS book is the book to have in your kit!

Surviving When Modern Medicine Fails, by Dr. Scott Johnson, is full of so much information about how essential oils are made, and then a reference section for looking up ailments and symptoms so you know just what oil to grab from your bag and exactly how and where to apply it.

Treating our family at home with essential oils has saved us so much money on copays and over-the-counter medicines!  We use oils from Young Living.  They are the first (only) kind of oils we have tried, and they have always worked better than we have expected!

And now.....for a giveaway!  Want your own copy of Dr. Scott's book?  Now's your chance!

All you have to do is LIKE Dr. Scott A. Johnson on Facebook HERE and then comment below!  Tell me what is your favorite essential oil.  Or, if you haven't used EOs before, tell me what you'd love to try to treat with essential oils!
