The Story Behind Thieves

The story of Thieves oil has always been an example of the evolution of medicine and and example of how many old medicinals have fallen into obscurity. Historically, doctors would use herbs and plant compounds to heal and protect from ailments.
During the terror of the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore an old type of hazmat suit, a protective suit created by the 17th-century physician Charles de l’Orme, someone multiple French kings had trusted. Doctor’s Review described it well:
“Made of a canvas outer garment coated in wax, as well as waxed leather pants, gloves, boots and hat, the costume became downright scary from the neck up. A dark leather hood and mask were held onto the face with leather bands and gathered tightly at the neck so as to not let in any noxious, plague-causing miasmas that might poison the wearer. Eyeholes were cut into the leather and fitted with glass domes.”
The masks they wore had long, curved snouts, and the doctors would fill the snouts with herbs to combat the smell of those infected by the plague. Not only was this used to protect them from the awful stench, but they also used it to prevent contracting the horrible disease. Most people believed that the plague was being spread by poisonous vapors in the air. Thus, the Medico della Peste was created.
Doctors aren’t thieves, I know you’re thinking this! I’m supposed to be telling the story of thieves, not doctors!
Well, the doctors kind of got the idea from a group of French thieves, who were spice traders. These spice traders understood the medical properties of natural herbs and spices better than anyone. It’s been said that they would soak bandanas in a combination of specific spices to wrap around their faces while they loot the houses infected by the plague. No one else would go in there for fear of succumbing to the terrifying disease.
The French thieves used Four Thieves Vinegar, or Marseille Vinegar. There have been various recipes floating around, but one particular recipe stated that it is a combination of rosemary, sage, lavender, rue, camphor, garlic, cloves, and distilled wine vinegar. By combining the different ideas of the various recipes and using current research on plant compounds, Gary D. Young, the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, has fine tuned it to what he believes is the most powerful combination of plant compounds to combat most viruses, fungi, and bacteria.
Essential oils are the blood of the plant–they’re volatile oils that have compounded medicinal properties of the plant. “Research conducted at Weber State University, as well as other documented research, indicates that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carcacrol, thymol, and terpenes. This, perhaps, offers a modern explanation why the Old Testament prophet Moses used aromatic substances to protect theIsraelites from the plagues that decimated ancient Egypt. It may also help us understand why a notorious group of thieves, reputed to be spice traders and perfumers, was protected from the Black Plague as they robbed the bodies of the dead during the 15th century.” (Essential Oils Desk Reference, 4th Edition, p6)”
The Young Living brand Thieves oil is a combination of rosemary,cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, and lemon oils, each having individual, profound healing properties. These oils create a delightful aroma that also aids in preventing sicknesses and helping you heal from a sickness.

Dr. Matt Schick:
Whole Body Cryotherapy comes to Fort Collins!  What is Whole Body cryotherapy? Whole Body Cryotherapy, or WBC, is the submersion of your body (except the head) in a chamber that is filled with nitrogen gas.
What is the purpose of this submersion? Submitting yourself to the extreme cold temperatures of WBC helps to fight inflammation, decrease pain, reduce soreness, and give you a boost of energy.
How does it work? When the body is exposed to temperatures this cold, it goes into a fight or flight response. What this means is that the blood vessels in the extremities (hands, feet, legs and arms) are closed off and that blood is instead circulated around the core. While circulating in the core, the blood picks up more oxygen, and other enzymes and nutrients that the body uses to heal. The brain also releases endorphins, which are our natural pain killers. When you step out of the chamber, the blood vessels open back up, creating a flushing effect, and the blood rushes back out to the extremities taking with it all those enzymes, nutrients, and endorphins, which gives the tissues the fuel that they need to speed the healing process. And because the endorphins are there, they relieve pain and give somewhat of an energy rush, or a natural high type of feeling.
What is the difference between WBC and an ice bath?  Whole Body Cryotherapy is like an ice bath on steroids, but it isn’t nearly as miserable as ice baths, and it only takes two and a half minutes, compared to at least 20 with ice baths. Another difference is in the way that each works. Ice baths are a wet cold, where the response from the body is to try and warm the area up. The brain sends more blood to the extremities in turn causing the blood to slightly decrease in temperature. With WBC, because the blood is in the warm core, it actually increases in temperature. With WBC, the nitrogen gas is a dry cold, so even though the actual temperature is much colder, the process is very tolerable.
Who can use WBC? Even if there is no injury or pain present, people still notice a difference after getting done with a session in the chamber. Obviously, the more pain you are in, the more noticeable a difference you will note. People with acute athletic injury or are in the recovery phase from an injury can benefit greatly from WBC. People who just had surgery can see a huge benefit from WBC, as usually the number one reason for not progressing quickly with recovery is inflammation, and WBC can almost eliminate inflammation. People who suffer from chronic pain syndromes such as arthritis, MS, and some auto-immune diseases benefit as well. If you are just sore from a very tough work-out, WBC can decrease soreness by almost 80%!

Is there anybody who can’t use Whole Body Cryotherapy? There are three main reasons for not being able to get in the chamber. They are heart conditions, such as history of heart attacks, high blood pressure, or a pace maker; Raynaud’s  Syndrome (a circulatory disorder), or if you are pregnant. Here at
5280 Cryo & Recovery Clinic, we also don’t like to have kids under the age of 14 get in the chamber.
