I want to share with everyone the changes in my health that I have seen since I started drinking the NingXia Red and to explain why I praise the use of this fruit drink, I will have to go back a year.

This time last year, I was in so much pain I was beginning to be desperate for anything I could use to stop it. I would hurt so bad, I could hardly get off the couch and walk across my living room, let alone walk around a store to shop or enjoy anything at all.

I went to my doctor about the problem,, he ran all kinds of tests, cat scan's, so many x-ray's I thought I'd glow, but couldn't find anything causing the problem, other then I was getting older. Well, I'm only 55 now, 54 then, I didn't buy into that. But the pain was getting worse, and then I started noticing that I was having numbness in my fingers, first the tips, then down my thumbs. It finally got to the point that I was cutting myself, burning myself and dropping things all the time. Back to the doctor. Well, they wanted to put me in splints, said it was carpel tunnel syndrome. But the splints made the pain even worse to the point that I couldn't stand them on, besides, have you ever tried driving with both hands in splints? So off they went. I decided I would just have to live with it all.

Looking for anything and everything for relief, I started drinking at night to get to sleep. It worked at first, but then I needed more and more. I got scared that I'd turn into an alcoholic if I keep that up.

I had been trying to reach family members for a long time that I had lost touch with. Then out of the blue, after my husband had tried to help me find my lost family members I got a phone call. Well, that phone call was destined to change my life.

My niece, Nancy Sanderson called me. One thing led to another, and I joined Young Living and mostly to see family again, I went to the 2005 convention. It turned out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

To make a long story shorter, after hearing what I heard at the convention, eating the right food there, and trying the products, I was hooked. I stared drinking the NingXia Red everyday, two, sometimes three times a day. I used the Peppermint for my headaches, the PanAway for the pain in my hands, and the Lavender just for calming. I started to notice, the pain was decreasing! Then one day I noticed the feeling in my hands was coming back! After coming back to our home that we had been away from for awhile, everyone was asking what I was doing, they said, ("you look so much better, what have you been doing?") Even my doctor noticed a difference when I went in for my regular check up, and was amazed. My blood pressure was down, the pain was gone from my hands almost all the numbness gone, and I wasn't having any problems walking!

That was almost 2 months ago. Today, no numbness in my hands at all! I have feeling even in my finger tips. The weather is getting colder here, unbearable this time last year which made my pain worse and now that pain too is gone. The only changes, real changes I have made in my life, I drink NingXia Red, not alcohol, and I use the oils.

It's saved my life, literally, it's hard for some people to understand, but that kind of pain, for me was getting unbearable, I was scared to death I was headed for a wheel chair, or worse..having worked in nursing homes for several years, I thought I might be headed there which was a very unpleasant thought. I can honestly say no way would I go there. I had even had thoughts of, if it got to that point, or worse, how I would end-it-all.

NingXia Red, the Essential Oils, Nancy Sanderson and Gary Young saved my life. I'm still working on other health issues, weight etc, but I'm using the Young Living products to do it, and I know I will succeeded.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
2.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
3.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "In the present study, we have evaluated the gastroprotective activity of turmeric essential oil (TEO) and ginger essential oil (GEO) in rats.... Histopathological examination showed that ethanol-induced lesions such as necrosis, erosion, and hemorrhage of the stomach wall were significantly reduced after oral administration of essential oils.... Results suggest that TEO and GEO could reduce the gastric ulcer in rat stomach as seen from the ulcer index and histopathology of the stomach. Moreover, oxidative stress produced by ethanol was found to be significantly reduced by TEO and GEO."Link
4.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "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
5.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "Phytogenic compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are currently discussed as promising complementary agents in prevention and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our study aimed to evaluate possible protective and curative effects of broccoli extract (BE) and of the essential oils of turmeric (Cuo), thyme (To), and rosemary (Ro) in a rat model with a mild dextran sulphate sodium- (DSS-) induced colitis.... We conclude that the phytogenic additives tested have a promising anti-inflammatory potential in vivo and a particular role in the prevention of IBD."Link
6.Associated topics: neuralgia,nerve-damage,nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
7.Associated topics: nerve-damage,nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
8.Associated topics: oxidative-stress — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
