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.

Where do I begin? In 2004 I had back surgery and did not do all that I was supposed to do during recovery. Since then I have paid the price. After a while, major discomfort came back.

It started with severe pain in my left foot. Then the numbness in the foot started and continued up the leg. Eventually I started losing muscle in my calf. The left calf became at least one inch smaller than the right calf, and the skin color was off. My daughter asked if anyone has ever asked if my leg is fake.

Two years later the pain had started in the right foot. I then started having severe pain in the right side of my stomach area, up high. Every test that you could run on the gallbladder was run. Everything looked fine.

I had no insurance, and it was hard to get in to see a specialist. The doctor I was seeing at the time told me to go gluten free for one month, stick with it, and see what would happen.

I did so, and it was the hardest thing that I have ever done in my life! The first 3 weeks I ate organic meats, fresh vegetables, no bread of any kind, and nothing out of a package. I started feeling so much better!

Then I started eating out, and, yes once in a while I would get a reaction; within 45 minutes I always knew it.

I had other issues going on with me, including painful arthritis and major sinus issues.

I do not know what to give credit to for my healing because, when I started using the Young Living essential oils about 2 to 3 weeks ago, I put a mixture of Lemon, Peppermint, and Frankincense essential oils on my neck in the morning and evening and maybe once during the day.

Now my sinuses are clearing up! I have also been drinking NingXia Red juice, two ounces every morning. Oh, and I diffuse every night. Drinking lots of water with Lemon or Peppermint is helpful.

I am also trying different things for the pain in my back and joints with the other essential oils that came in the kit. I use Lemongrass, Frankincense, Valor, and Lavender mixed with olive oil. I keep it made up in a glass roller bottle. Whenever I start hurting in the joints, I pull out my roller bottle and am at ease in no time!

Okay, this was the big test...

I had at my house a few rolls left from a dinner party that were not gluten free, and they used to be my favorite. I had not had one of these rolls in over two years. Yes, I did it, I did not only eat one but two -- knowing I would be paying the price dearly. Well, nothing happened. Wow!

I told my daughter, who is great about policing what I eat. She told me to think of something that I really want to have but that I know would send me into a massive attack -- and eat it!

Well, three days later we went out to eat, and on the menu was a good old country chicken-fried steak with creamy gravy and a roll -- and yes, I did eat it. Nope, nothing happened! I have no idea what concoction I have been using that has helped, but this is great!

No, I will not go back to eating a full-blown gluten-laden diet. We eat so much healthier now, but it is nice to know that, when I go to a potluck, I can eat some of the food. I had gotten to the point that I was avoiding potluck dinners with friends and going out to eat with others because of the gluten thing.

Wow, this has been so overwhelming for me. I have had more energy, clearer thinking, and a general feeling of improvement. I will see how things go with the neuropathy in my feet.

If anyone has had some of the same results with the gluten issues, please let me know which thing I did to help. I have several friends who have gone gluten free for the same reason I did, and I would love to help them know what to take.

I am a big fan of Young Living essential oils. THANK YOU!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
2.Associated topics: sinus — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
3.Associated topics: diet — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
4.Associated topics: arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
5.Associated topics: arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
6.Associated topics: nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
7.Associated topics: nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
