Florence Nightingale did far more than just nurse her patients back to health. She spent her life making a drastic change in the entire health care industry. So much of her life and work inspires men and women all over the world and can (and should) inspire natural wellness advocates as well. With the ongoing ‘health care’ fiasco in this world, people are doing more to put band aids on their illnesses than actual healing. There’s an entire mentality in the medical industry that perpetuates the disease-big pharma- medication-money-making-trap we find ourselves in. The nation’s so called health care industry is stuck in a rut and we need to do much more than just complain about it. We’re getting no where fast and we MUST make changes before it’s too late. We can all do our part to heal others like Florence Nightingale.
How You Can Heal Others like Florence Nightingale
Lady with the Lamp: Ministered to patients when others turned in for the night. Her presence often lit up their hopes as she walked the halls at twilight with her candle lit lamp. People don’t spend every waking moment with a physician, but we can touch their lives by staying in regular contact and lifting their spirits. We can support others and their quality of life can improve when we introduce them to a regular lifestyle of aromatic wellness. Offer carefully selected and properly diluted samples to assist their wellness journey. Follow up with them a few days later to assist them in getting a starter kit of their own.
Establish a place for education: Florence established an educational facility to train other nurses. In this modern day tech world we can offer a blog, newsletters, and online classes to help educate others. Teaching others how to use and apply essential oils is important.
Advocate for better health care and quality control: Florence traveled far and petitioned for quality and higher standards for her own industry. Advocacy for higher quality health care and wellness products requires inspiring people to reach out to companies to establish competitive prices and better quality in the production of their essential oils. While Florence did discuss the problems in her field, she spent more time speaking up about the solutions. She didn’t aim to tear apart the health care industry, instead she chose to help make it better.
Publish your written work: She used simple English so lower educated people can understand how to help themselves and others. There’s no need to make essential oil usage complicated. Conduct intensive research, collaborate with other well respected leaders in your field, and publish your easy-to-understand work on blogs, create newsletters, and offer free online classes.
Pursue spiritual growth: Florence was a spiritual woman and open to improving spiritual wellness. Try to be open with people of varying religious (and non-religious) beliefs, because their wellness is more important than converting them to your religion.
“People don’t care how much you know, until they first see how much you care.” ~John C. Maxwell
Conduct Clinical Research: Florence carefully documented health conditions, physical descriptions, dietary information, and other vital details of her patients. When you’re practicing wellness with essential oils, it’s important to document the same things of yourself and your loved ones. Keep a journal of your wellness needs and the remedies you’re using.
Support Women: While Florence worked tirelessly to improve work conditions and opportunities for women, she favored reaching out to men to get her goals accomplished. Her opinions about the lack of female support is quite telling.
“I have never found one woman who has altered her life by one iota for me or my opinions.” ~Florence Nightingale
Let this NOT be said of women today. We should be supporting one another, now more than ever. Women can be just as much responsible for wars as men are, but let us be known more for peace and support.
