Use of essential oils for transplant patients
I am curious about the use of essential oils when I have issues that might be helped by their use.
I had a living donor kidney transplant in August 2009. I am healthy and active, but do have the occassional ache, or pain, etc. I have ( self-diagnosed) plantar fasciitis, sore sometimes from a personal training session, occassional insomnia etc. Oh, I also have a “mild” case of valley fever (diagnosed at my 1 year post transplant anniversary).
I’m on the normal anti-rejection meds (prograf, cellcept, prednisone), plus itraconazole (for the valley fever, am allergic to fluconazole/diflucan).
I’m curious about others’ use of essential oils and whether it’s ok to use them.
Honoring the gift.
