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.

My 11-month-old French Bulldog was diagnosed with dysautonomia, a disease poorly understood and basically untreatable to modern medicine. It is most common in the Midwest in young dogs that live near cows in the country. Veterinarians believe Clostridium bacteria could be involved.

My dog was vomiting and either could not poop or had diarrhea. He was also drooling and was unable to eat or drink. His legs would shake as well. Within 3 days he could not walk or even lift his head off of the floor. I was told that he would likely not survive a week and that I should prepare the kids.

I took him home and started alternating Helichrysum, Thieves, and Peppermint on him. Every 2 to 3 hours during the day I would drop about 3 drops of essential oil up his spine, from tail to neck. I got some advice through a friend to do a Raindrop Technique on him, which I did once a day, alternating the essential oils I would use each day.

I tried to customize each day's essential oils to a specific theme based on what he needed: anti-inflammatory one day, anti-pathogen the next day, oils to help gut motility on the following day, oils for nausea the day after that, etc. I tried to always follow up with a driver or enhancer oil like Peppermint or Copaiba.

Most of the time my dog would just lie down and sleep for hours afterwards and wake up a little bit better than before. Sometimes he would twitch too.

I kept this regimen up for about 4 weeks, by which time he had improved so much that I was able to cut him back to just one or two oiling sessions a day. He was still having trouble with elimination, so I switched to Helichrysum on the spine and a few drops each (layered) of Eucalyptus, Cypress, and Peppermint on his belly.

It has been 7 weeks now, and I am still treating my dog every day or two with essential oils. I have been to 3 vets who all have told me that his progress has been remarkable and that he should be dead! They also requested a copy of my treatment records for using essential oils.

The only remnants of the disease we are still working on are gut motility and the ability to fully empty his bladder. Bottom line is essential oils saved my dog's life!
