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 husband and I are on a quest to lose weight. We are working out and using Young Living products. We have each already lost about 8 lbs and several inches. My husband works out 3 times a week on the treadmill for 1 hr and sometimes the Bow flex.

I joined Curves and go 3-4 times per week for the 30 minute work-out. It's
the best thing I've done for myself in a long time! It's so much fun I don't feel like
I'm working out. I went from a large size lycra stretch pant to a smaller size in
2 weeks.

Because of the Sulfurzyme, neither one of us experience soreness after our workout. We each drink 1/2 our body weight in ounces per day of water with
Lemon oil added to aid in liver cleansing and digestion.

I have 2 smoothies a day and a healthy meal and my husband has 2 meals and only
1 smoothie.

For the Smoothie: I break up the caps and pour the powdered oiled herbs in the

* Thermaburn [2am/2pm]
* Vitagreen [3 - 3 times a day]
* Sulfurzyme Power [1 heaping tbsp]
* Mineral Essence [3 droppers]
* BodyGize [formerly Body Balance]
* Organic Non-fat Milk - 4 oz.
* Organic banana
* NingXia Red juice 2 oz daily
* 6 ice cubes

My husband: Sometimes for him I add AminoTech or WheyFit to support his muscles.

We both take Essentialzyme in between meals and ComforTone AM and PM.

Many thanks to the Young Living products to improve our lives!

The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment....

2.Associated topics: muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.Associated topics: muscles — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
4.Associated topics: muscles — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
5.Associated topics: obesity,appetite,weight-loss,diet — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice.
