We recently heard from the monk in charge of the essential oils program at the Menri Monastery. He let us know that from mid-June to the end of 2013, he treated 34 patients who came in for a total of 237 visits. The majority of the patients were students at a local school, and a few were visitors to the monastery.
The majority of patients came to be treated for respiratory conditions such as cough, allergies, general cold symptoms, headaches, and influenza. Others came in seeking relief for skin conditions (rash, boils, warts, cuts, bruises, and infections), food poisoning, acid reflux, insect bites, mouth sores, tooth aches, muscle sprains and arthritis.
The monk serving as healer said that he mainly uses essential oils to treat those who seek his help, but also makes use of other treatments including homeopathy, aspirin, acetaminophen, iodine and more.
We thank you for your support of our project to provide for the essential oils program at the Menri Monastery. In the future, we hope to be able to share pictures and stories of specific treatment programs. Again, thank you for your support!
