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.

The main reason why I got started with essential oils is because my husband, at the age of 51, had 2 seizures for the first time in his life that were only 2 months apart. The first was a grand mal, and the second was not as severe.

He is very active, with few health problems. After the second seizure, the neurologist told him that he may have to be on anti-seizure meds for the rest of his life. He was not a fan of taking medication, let alone "for the rest of his life."

After a week or so of trying Kepra, he started to notice side effects like brain fog, memory loss, weakened muscles, chronic fatigue, and irritability. We began arguing often over the littlest of things, so it was causing a strain on our marriage too.

Since my husband did not tolerate the Kepra well, he tried putting a drop of Frankincense essential oil and Valor essential oil blend on his big toe every day and night. He feels 100% better using essential oils, and they give him a sense of control.

His moods have improved dramatically, and we rarely squabble anymore. I love having my sweet husband back and am so grateful for these oils!

FYI: We never learned the cause of his seizures. However, since he works for the airlines and flies internationally, my guess is that it is from breathing in the toxins in the pesticides that they spray on the airplanes... sometimes right before a flight!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Researchers... suggest making anticonvulsants based on pinene amino acids [found in pine, other conifers, cannabis, and other plants].... Amino ester of an amino acid, belonging to alpha-pinenes, showed great anticonvulsant activity... compared to Phenobarbital, a common anticonvulsant agent.... [S]cientists... suggest this derivative becoming the basic substance for development of new almost non-toxic anticonvulsant agents, thus making life of epilepsy patients easier."Link
2.In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis.Link
3."[N]utraceuticals derived from such spices as turmeric, red pepper, black pepper, licorice, clove, ginger, garlic, coriander, and cinnamon target inflammatory pathways, and thereby may prevent neurodegenerative diseases."Link
4."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
