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.

My dad is 86 with several health conditions, one being chronic kidney failure (CKF), a.k.a. chronic kidney disease (CKD), chronic renal disease (CRD), chronic renal failure (CRF), end-stage renal disease (ESRD), end-stage renal failure (ESRF), or end-stage kidney disease (ESKD).

My father has had 20% kidney function for nearly two years now, continually decreasing over the past 10 years or so. He has been heading towards eventual dialysis. He "humored" me with my essential oils, as I made a blend for him, just hoping for some support for his poor kidneys.

At our last appointment a week ago, his nephrologist was blown away and said that he could not believe his eyes. In just 5 months, my dad's kidney function went from 20% to 29%! The doctor said that he had never seen this in someone like my dad. Though the doctor was not interested in learning about the essential oils, he did say to keep up on whatever we have been doing.

Our recipe started out as equal parts of Juniper, Geranium, Grapefruit, Clary Sage, and Copaiba essential oils diluted 50:50 with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex. I left out Lemongrass essential oil at first because we did not want to detox my dad too fast. I added that slowly after about 2 months.

I made it easy by putting a roller ball on the bottle containing the mixture so my dad could simply roll it on his feet twice a day. (I had to make it easy, or it would not happen.)

The only other change was using diluted RC and Lavender oil on my dad's chest for his COPD. There were no diet changes or medication changes. So the ONLY thing it could have been was the essential oils! After all these years, I still never cease to be amazed by these oils.

Feel free to message us to clarify anything. Obviously everyone is different, and all I can do is share what has worked for us!

Supporting Scientific Study
kidney-disease - "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
