Okay... my dog story....

He was acting all weird in the middle of the night! He wouldn't eat and wouldn't eliminate. He just had his tail between his legs, was mopey looking, and sat outside for hours... hardly walking.

When you tried to pick him up, he cried out. His abdomen was swollen and hard. We took him to the vet to see maybe what he ate or if it was a blockage. They did an x-ray, and it revealed no blockages. We could see the intestines and stomach... but also a "mass" that was pushing his organs out of position.

The vet of course could do nothing for him except exploratory surgery. They just didn't know what this mass could be. The dog is 11 years old, so we went home to think about it.

I sat down and took out my essential oils reference book that I use, and Frankincense was good for swelling. I mixed Frankincense, the Thieves oil blend, and a carrier oil, rubbing it onto his abdomen right then.

Then the next morning he was slowly walking around and ate a treat. I gave him another rub of the mixture on my way to work, and by that evening he was eating and eliminating.

I repeated this protocol twice a day for a week, and the dog is acting like normal again. The swelling is gone, he is not crying out, and he is actually jumping now onto the couch!

I am even more convinced now than ever before just what these essential oils do for me, my pet, and my home. I am grateful that I found out about Young Living and these oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: swelling — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
2.Associated topics: cancer,tumor — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
3.Associated topics: dogs — "Idiopathic vestibular syndrome is the most common cause of peripheral vestibular disease in dogs and, despite its dramatic clinical presentation, can improve without intervention."Link
4.Associated topics: cancer — "Local application of frankincense essential oil may provide a non-surgical treatment alternative, with no or minimal side effect for carcinoma in situ, minimally invasive carcinoma and pre-cancerous conditions such as actinic keratosis."Link
5.Associated topics: cancer — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
6.Associated topics: cancer — "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
7.Associated topics: cancer — "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: dogs — "[T]opical fatty acids and essential oils are a useful treatment option for canine atopic dermatitis."Link
