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 just had to share my excitement with you all! I saw my doctor on Monday, July 28, 2014, and got my CD57+/CD3- absolute blood work results... and woohoo! Prior to my blood draw (fasting) on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, I had been using Ravintsara essential oil for 2 1/2 months and Frankincense essential oil for 1 month and 3 days.

Well, the results of my Lyme disease test had increased (the way you want it to go) by 73 points! My test results in January had been at 39, and I was disappointed. And then this month it was at 112, and I jumped out of the chair and cheered (really I did)! I am not sure who laughed harder... my husband or my doctor.

This is quite exciting for all my family and friends because before being introduced to Young Living Essential Oils, I had undergone treatment for 3 1/2 years, which for the majority of those years was unsuccessful. I had actually declined in status and thus diagnosis -- from chronic Lyme disease to late-stage chronic Lyme disease (meaning the Lyme bacteria had moved into my neurological system and cardiovascular system).

During this time I also developed gastrointestinal (GI) issues, gastroparesis, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) liver disease. I also was in and out of the hospital with admissions and emergency room visits.

The only two CD57 scores I had -- that were above my present score of 112 -- were 142 with Rocefian (via PICC line in 2011) and 124 with Bactrim in 2013 (to the best of my husband's and my memory).

Though I cannot make definitive proof one way or another that these essential oils are what has resulted in the 73-point jump in my CD57 score, I can say that they have given me the greatest amount of hope in my fight against Lyme disease in the past 4 years (October 10, 2014, will be 4 years since my diagnosis and beginning treatment).

For those who want to know, we believe that I went undiagnosed/misdiagnosed for approximately 27 years. Feel free to email me with any questions. Not only am I a Lyme Warrior, but I am a cheerleader for fellow Lymies and their families and friends! God bless you all in your fight for your life! Together we can win!
