Dr. Eric Zielinski is a doctor of chiropractic who is also a public health researcher and who specializes in essential oils and aromatherapy. He is a pioneer in the biblical health space and author of the international bestsellers, The Healing Power of Essential Oils and The Essential Oils Diet.

He is also the perfect, enlightened, well-informed guest, in conversation with Dr. Jockers as part of the Chronic Inflammation Summit. Together they are asking all the obvious questions pertaining to inflammation in the body so as to ensure we have a common understanding of that which is at the root of nearly every chronic health condition.

From that solid base they build a foundation of understanding regarding the valuable role that essential oils have to play in combatting inflammation of the body. 

Learn what it means to take your hand out of the fire, to fast from the media, toxic foods, get rid of toxic aerosol cans, and address the emotional stressors that may be triggering your inflammation. 

Apply a holistic approach to your understanding of chronic inflammation so that you can get to the root cause. Learn how to use essential oils in your day to day as part of your inflammation solution.

If you know of anyone dealing with chronic inflammation, please share this conversation with them. Thank you, and let’s dive into the show.


“I would say chronic inflammation is the number one cause of all chronic disease. Period.

-Dr. Eric Zielinski
