Young Living Essential Oils and "Disease Claims"
Young Living and the FDA are now requiring that all sources of information regarding Young Living oils do not make health-related claims that can't be backed up by FDA-approved scientific studies. Unfortunately, even though the scientific literature is full of studies showing the therapeutic benefits of essential oils, many of these studies aren't FDA-approved.
Young Living is working on an list of FDA-approved studies, but this list has not yet been released. In the meantime, the Optimal Health Network will be working on never claiming or suggesting that Young Living products can cure, alleviate, treat, prevent, or diagnose a disease, symptom, or injury. These types of claims are called "disease claims."
Conditions generally considered to be diseases include: colds, flu, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart attacks, HIV, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies, tooth decay, impotence, seizures, asthma, attention deficit disorder, ulcers, burns, mild abrasions, bruises, scars, head lice, obesity, anxiety, and depression. Many, many others belong on this list, but there isn't enough space for all of them here!
