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 had been getting progressively worse with no relief in sight for my fibromyalgia (FMS). Just washing my hair and then trying to dry it caused my arms and shoulders to hurt so BAD.

I used to be very active and could exercise. It got to where even walking a mile would wear my legs out and make me feel like my whole body weighed a 1,000 pounds.

I had been on some hardcore stuff for relief from fibro and restless legs for the past 6+ years.

I was introduced to essential oils in January 2014. I did a ZYTO scan, which read my biomarkers. My top biomarker out of range indicated that I needed the Sulfurzyme supplement.

I am ALLERGIC to sulfa drugs but researched and found that the majority of people allergic to sulfa can take this supplement. (I have been told that, if a person cannot eat eggs, it is not recommended that they take Sulfurzyme, but I did not have that issue.)

One strange thing I had was INTENSE burning on my scalp 24/7 and my scalp (the crown area of head) would be warm to the touch. Initially I started out just applying essential oils topically to my shoulders, neck, and the top of my head. I applied anything and everything, including PanAway, Deep Relief, Basil, Peppermint, Copaiba, Frankincense, Aroma Siez, and Lemongrass. I got some relief but still needed my medications.

I also started out initially drinking 2 ounces of NingXia Red juice daily. I will NEVER go without it.

On March 1st, I started taking Sulfurzyme capsules, two in AM and two in PM; one Life 5 in PM; and EndoGize, one AM and one PM. I followed this regimen for four weeks, then took off for two weeks, and then did this another four weeks. More relief!

Then I took an empty 15 ml bottle and added the following five essential oils: 40 drops Copaiba, 40 drops Wintergreen, 30-35 drops Frankincense, 30-35 drops Basil, and 30-35 drops either Idaho Blue Spruce or Idaho Balsam Fir (depending on which I had). I carry this bottle with me with empty capsules.

Initially on April 1st, I would take three or four of these capsules (15-16 drops in each capsule) per day. I now can go a few days without having to even take one capsule!

Once I personally chose to start taking these five essential oils internally, that is when I noticed a big enough difference. I would report back to my doctor and keep her informed about what I was doing. This process was supervised and fully supported by my doctor, and she gradually took me off of the things she had previously put me on.

Again, walking a mile used to tire me out and make my muscles ache. So then I went to my first convention in Salt Lake this past June. I walked OVER 60 miles with a lot of these miles carrying a laptop and heavy bags. I was the last in our room to get to sleep and averaged five hours of sleep a night. I felt great and didn't even need my capsules for a few of the days that I was there!

Sorry for the length of this testimonial, but I wanted to share how lifesaving these products have been for me. I am now 53 and was not looking forward to being in agony for the rest of my life. I am now rid of my heavy brain fog caused by the things my doctor used to have me on and am able to live again! I hope my experience helps someone else and that they are able to find relief as well.
