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 53 year old sister-in-law suffered a hemorrhagic stroke after a serious operation on her foot. She was left with complete loss of movement of her right hand. After weeks of physical therapy, she regained use of her last three fingers but her thumb and fore finger were still stiff.

The doctor had suggested that she take a course to learn to write with her left hand. She is a registered nurse so losing the complete use of her right hand was devastating.

I went to visit her and started massaging Marjoram and Cypress on her hand, concentrating on the thumb and fore finger. Within a few minutes she started to be able to move all five fingers. Within 24 hours she could write her name with that hand.

She has enough movement in all five fingers so that she can do normal things with her hand. It has been several months since she started this treatment. She still uses the oils on her hand and is so very grateful. She also drinks NingXia Red juice and says she never felt better. She has lost about 20 pounds and has stopped smoking.

She feels the juice help her accomplish these two miracles.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: heart-attack-(Coronary-thrombosis),heart,stroke — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
2.Associated topics: heart — "[I]dentifying... the effects of YYA [ylang ylang aroma] on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) is important in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of YYA. The present results demonstrated that inhalation of YYA significantly decreased the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Inhalation of YYA also significantly decreased the HRs in 10 leads.... In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
