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.

This last Saturday we were with most of our family for a special occasion. Our dog travels with us where ever we go and loves the grand kids. During the course of visiting, one of our granddaughters brought her to us saying 'I think our dog (younger lab) hurt your dog'. We could see she was hunched it looked like her spine was injured.

That evening we could tell she was in real trouble and could not walk. We used Raindrop oils on her spine. Some of the Raindrop oils are the Valor oil blend, Idaho Balsam Fir, Frankincense, Lavender, Cypress and Helichrysum. This perked her up a bit....but she still couldn't walk.

We also used a couple of drops of the DiGize oil blend on her tummy and paws because she got hold of a large piece of jerky during the time we were visiting with the kids which she swallowed it right down.

Sunday Morning there was still no improvement so we called a vet for an examination, in which she was interested in what the oils had to offer. We sent her an education package to help her learn about the oils.

We then drove about 450 miles on Sunday to return to the motor home. Tuesday we took our dog into Dr. Nancy Brandt (YL Distributor) to be examined which she said we were doing everything correctly.

She then worked with acupuncture and did an adjustment. She told us to use one Detoxzyme a day and gave us other products she should take daily that would help with inflammation.

Our dog can walk (it's an awkward walk) today and we are taking her back to Dr. Brandt in a couple hours for a check up....more adjustment and acupuncture we think. But what we are seeing is that she is far more alert and we feel she is going to make it now.

Last Sunday night we gave her very little hope and we shed our tears preparing for the worst. Nine years ago we lost a little pik to the same kind of problem to his spine which led to a stroke and of course we didn't know about Young Living then.

She is a loving little dog and is truly our Young Living Essential Oils mascot. As we travel she wants to visit everyone and before long they will ask how we keep her coat so shiny. We then have a reason to tell them we have a 'special pet shampoo' with no chemicals which leads to giving away our sharing package with the Missing Link tape.

At least today we see her mind is alert and yesterday was the first time she barked and wagged her tail. These experiences with her gives us another reason to be thankful for our Young Living Products and our knowledge of how to use them.

Now 4 weeks later she has fully recovered using our natural supplements and therapeutic essential oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: inflammation — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: spine,back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: inflammation — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... 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
4.Associated topics: puppy-/-dog-/-canine — "Idiopathic vestibular syndrome is the most common cause of peripheral vestibular disease in dogs and, despite its dramatic clinical presentation, can improve without intervention."Link
5.Associated topics: inflammation — "To assess their anti-inflammatory activities, effects of essential oils on neutrophil activation were examined in vitro.... All essential oils tested at 0.1% concentration suppressed TNF-945;-induced neutrophil adherence, and, in particular, lemongrass, geranium, and spearmint oils clearly lowered the reaction even at 0.0125%. Similar inhibitory activities for the neutrophil adherence were obtained by their major constituent terpenoids: citral, geraniol, citronellol and carvone. Thus, some essential oils used as anti-inflammatory remedies suppress neutrophil activation by TNF-945; at a low concentration (0.0125-0.025%) in vitro."Link
6.Associated topics: inflammation — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
7.Associated topics: inflammation — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
8.Associated topics: inflammation — "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
