I want to share with everyone the changes in my health that I have seen since I started drinking the NingXia Red juice 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 scans, so many x-ray's I thought I'd glow, but couldn't find anything causing the problem, other then I was getting older. 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.

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 having 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. That phone call was destined to change my life.

My niece 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 2-4 ounces of the NingXia Red juice everyday, two sometimes three times a day. I used several drops of Peppermint for my headaches, the PanAway oil blend for the pain in my hands, and applied Lavender oil 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, I have 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 are that 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, my niece 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 am succeeding.
