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 apologize for my delay, had a few technical difficulties, but I assure you it has nothing to do with having a bad fibro day! Thanks to my friend Debbie for helping me find relief and finally be able to stay off those terrible meds! I will not claim cures -- only what has worked for me!

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1997, over the years the list of medications I tried is a mile long, from Elavil to Cymbalta and Lyrica, some which had bad side effects. Most of the last 10 years the combo that worked best for me was Wellbutrin and Deseryl, adding Empirin 3 on really painful days.

The "FDA approved" medicines made me very sick. I finally reached out to my friend Debbie for what she called, "God's medicine". All I did was buy the Premium Starter Kit and try the essential oils! I put the PanAway essential oil blend on my hips, a drop or two twice a day... and wow!

I also used the others to see what worked. Peppermint oil is also great, and Valor stops pain in my neck, just a drop or so. I also love applying the Stress Away oil blend too! Debbie tells me I am very sensitive to essential oils, so what works for me might not work for others. All I can say is to try them until you find what works for you.

Sometimes I use a drop or two of Clove and Sage oils to help alleviate my muscle discomfort. Sensitive people would want to dilute with olive oil when using some of the "hot" oils. Even the Thieves oil blend helps my aching joints and also helps with the brain fog. I even have had great relief from Idaho Blue Spruce.

I find that many of the oils take away my pain better than the drugs did! It is nice to not be suffering and finally be drug free! I just had to give essential oils a chance!

Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "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
5.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
6.Associated topics: joints — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
7.Associated topics: joints — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
8.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
