  7. This is great. I’m an infectious diseases/internal medicine physician that is interested in using essential oils for therapy. I have seen antibiotics do amazing things. I also see them used unnecessarily all the time and see some horrible side effects. I would just add to the timeline that we now have National Plan to Combat Antibiotic Resistance and it even mentions studying phytochemical and essential oils! Needed a long time. See Goal #4 that includes development of new antibiotics and other therapeutics. https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/national_action_plan_for_combating_antibotic-resistant_bacteria.pdf
    “Examples of non-traditional therapeutic strategies include:……
    • Identifying natural compounds with antibiotic activity (e.g., phytochemicals, essential oils,
    organic acids, animal-derived lytic enzymes, and small interfering RNAs).”

    We Oilers are ahead of the game!
