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.

When my Shih Tzu was 3 years old, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. I took him to the vet several times... and finally to a specialist.

They did blood work on him, and his white count was over 14,000. Initially, they were going to keep him and pump him full of antibiotics and steroids for 48 hours.

After the internal specialist looked at my dog's information, he said that my dog had some kind of autoimmune disorder similar to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and suggested no other options but to send him home with pain killers and oral antibiotics.

So I looked at several websites and decided to give my dog one ounce of NingXia Red and one Sulfurzyme capsule. I also used Frankincense and Thieves essential oils on his head. I applied the oils neat (undiluted), but now I know that I should have diluted them.

Initially my dog was so sick that he would not play, eat, or move. And his fur was all greasy looking and matted down to his body.

However, just 12 hours after I gave my dog the combination of supplements and oils, he had eaten an entire bowl of food, drank an entire bowl of water, and was playing like his old self. Additionally, his fur was starting to look normal again!

One of my dog's symptoms was having an eye that was completely filled with blood, and it oozed so much goop that he lost all of the fur around his eye. The goop stopped oozing within the initial 12 hours, and, within a couple of days, the eye started looking normal again.

Over the next 3 1/2 months, I continued 1 capful of NingXia Red and one capsule of Sulfurzyme each day, stopping every few weeks to see if my dog still needed it. After stopping the protocol, his eye would immediately fill with blood again. So I would start the regimen back up, and the eye would start looking normal again within 24 hours.

I stopped the protocol for the last time 3 1/2 months after I started. This time no symptoms returned. Though we may never find a cure for autoimmune disorders, at least my dog has been feeling happy and seemingly healthy lately. In fact, it has now been over a year since I stopped the treatment, and he still has vision in that formerly goopy, bloody eye.

We are so thankful to have had the Young Living essential oils and products. Otherwise, I know the story would have had a MUCH different ending....
