Annemarie and European Oils, Part II
At 6 o’clock I couldn’t contain myself any longer, so I picked up the phone and dialed it. It rang once when I thought, oh Gary, don’t be ridiculous and don’t wake her up this early. I was putting the phone down when she answered and said, “Dr. Young, I was expecting your call.”
Because of that phone call, five days later I landed in Zurich, Switzerland; and her family met me at the airport. I went to a little village of Travers, spent a couple of days with the herbal medicine people, and then went on a train to the University of Geneva. There I took a 40-hour class with two doctors, Jean-Claude Lapraz and Paul Duraffourd on the properties of essential oils.
After visiting with them, they invited me to come to Paris after the seminar. So I jumped on a train and went to Paris and spent a week in the hospital with them where they were doing research with essential oils, putting one drop of essential oil on a sugar cube and giving it to the patient. The results were phenomenal.
At that point I then bought 13 different oils, 1 liter each, and brought them home to experiment with them in my clinic and on me. So that’s where I began my work.
So, yes, do I have a passion? Do I have a commitment? The answers are there if we want to search and find them.
