Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I no longer have many health issues due to a radical diet change, learning to manage stress, and using essential oils (all to reverse a cancer diagnosis naturally for my hubby).

The one issue I continue to have is indigestion and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which strikes when I eat too much or too late. My lower esophageal sphincter (LES) just is not what it used to be.

And this is not just a nagging indigestion. It is the kind that includes really bad pain and zero sleep for the night. It typically lasts 6 or 7 hours -- no matter what -- and I have to stay sitting up on the couch for the night. The next day feels like a "day after".

For years, pharmaceutical and over-the-counter meds did nothing for this problem. However, essential oils helped a lot. I would use the DiGize oil blend, Lemon, Ginger, and Peppermint in many ways and combinations: topically in water, and in capsules. Lemon was actually one of the most helpful oils. It would make the reflux tolerable, but the indigestion was still too annoying to sleep.

We drink NingXia Red juice for all of its incredible health benefits... but somehow I had never timed it with the indigestion. Then one night I drank a shot of NingXia Red while I was in pain. Within 15 minutes, the pain was gone... completely gone. I was astonished!

So the next time I tried it again... with the same result! And again and again! So now when I can feel that slight feeling which tells me that there is pressure building there -- and a painful, sleepless night is on deck -- I drink just a couple of ounces of NingXia Red, and the indigestion never even arrives full force.

The fun (and frustration) of essential oils is that each of us is unique, so we have to keep trying to find the magic answer. But this website, www.Oil-Testimonials.com, is so full of helpful information and tried and true remedies.

So all you indigestion and GERD sufferers, why not give NingXia Red a try? While your body is bathed in nutrition, it might just get you that pain-free good night's sleep too!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am happy to help!

6.Associated topics: indigestion — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
7.Associated topics: stomach,gastroesophageal-reflux-disease-(GERD),indigestion — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
8.Associated topics: stomach,indigestion — "In the present study, we have evaluated the gastroprotective activity of turmeric essential oil (TEO) and ginger essential oil (GEO) in rats.... Histopathological examination showed that ethanol-induced lesions such as necrosis, erosion, and hemorrhage of the stomach wall were significantly reduced after oral administration of essential oils.... Results suggest that TEO and GEO could reduce the gastric ulcer in rat stomach as seen from the ulcer index and histopathology of the stomach. Moreover, oxidative stress produced by ethanol was found to be significantly reduced by TEO and GEO."Link
