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.

My 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with very early onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease last year. This is VERY rare for a child this young to be diagnosed with this disease that typically only affects adults, so there was very little research and no medications for children.

So we started her on medications intended for adults. We went through 8 different drugs and steroids with no change. She was actually feeling worse. And all of the medications prescribed came with other drugs to help combat the side effects. Our last option was Remicaid, which was recently reclassified as a chemo-therapy treatment. I was terrified of putting my little girl through that without exhausting every other option available.

So our doctor gave us 3 months to "watch her" before we decided to go ahead with the treatment. He was sure that we would need it because her colon was the worst he had ever seen on someone her age.

We immediately started giving her one ounce on Ningxia Red juice every morning and another ounce at night. We also applied the Digize oil blend topically on her tummy before every meal.

After some research, we began to add a drop of Frankincense to her NIngXia Red juice. We discovered that it helped reduce symptoms of Crohn's as well as increased production of digestive enzymes, increasing urine production, and relaxing the muscles in the digestive tract.

More research. We came across several studies on MSM and its ability to help with Autoimmune Diseases. So we ordered Sulfurzyme and added 1/4 tsp to her NingXia Red twice a day.

We also changed our family's diet significantly to allow her gut some time to heal. We switched to the Autoimmune Protocol which is like a hardcore Paleo. It was difficult at first but we began seeing results in her energy levels, attitude, emotional stability, and overall wellness within a few days.

She developed Rheumatoid Arthritis in her hands and knees as a complication of the disease. The pain worsened as her IBD symptoms intensified but they also faded along with the disease. The Cool Azul Pain Cream and Deep Relief blend provided immediate lessoning of pain that would often be so intense that she could not walk.

We went back for another colonoscopy and to discuss treatments with our doctor. Before the procedure he had already arranged for us to start treatment the next week but he was astounded to find that the inflammation in her colon had almost completely disappeared!

Then we just went back for our 6 month check up and he said that she looked nearly perfect! He would have never guessed that this was the same girl that he saw less than a year ago.

Praise the Lord!

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
