Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
This is a followup about stopping milk production due to galactorrhea. Galactorrhea is a milky nipple discharge unrelated to the normal milk production of breastfeeding. According to the Mayo Clinic, "galactorrhea itself is not a disease, but it could be a sign of an underlying problem."
Since my previous posting on this issue, I found that I had sciatic endometriosis (although I could have had it for decades). So I began to use turmeric capsules (Nature's Sunshine brand in Australia) with 95% standardized curcuminoids which reduced the discomfort, together with Young Living Progressence Plus to help keep my hormones balanced.
I use two capsules of turmeric morning and evening as well as two drops of Progressence Plus each morning and evening. The wrists are a good place to drop the oil; I rub the wrists together for quick absorption.
I have noticed an improvement in both the galactorrhea and the endometriosis. Mind you, I am now 47, and it could be coincidental with my age; but endometriosis was something else the doctor said I could not be treated for.
So far, after two years of doing this, I am enjoying much better health with the aid of these two products alone! It is great not to have sore and lumpy breasts, as I have had this condition for twenty years... along with five years of chronic aching/discomfort from the sciatic endometriosis.
I have also found that avoiding all soy milk and unfermented protein products is most beneficial, as I found that these products triggered massive milk production like that after giving birth. I hope this information helps others!
