I was diagnosed with diabetes eight years ago. At the time my fasting bloodsugar was over 500mg/dl. Several medications later (one was Reslin that was pulled for causing liver damage) and different diets I gained over 80 pounds and my bloodsugar stablelized around 220+ with medication. At the time my daughter introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils and NingXia Red, my blood pressure was now compromised and I was told I needed two more drugs.

I had pain in my hands, feet (neurapathy), sore knees from a former torn ACL and a blood red color traveling up my legs with several bruises and scares from badly healed sores. After taking 3 to 4 ounces of NingXia Red daily, the pain went away in my hands and knees and greatly receeded in my feet. I was able to wear tennis shoes without pain and began walking 1 to 2 miles a day.

As I learned about the Essential Oils, I applied PanAway, Wintergreen, Cypress and Valor to my knees, legs, ankles and feet and have increased my walking to 3 to 4 miles a day two months later with no pain.

I now ingest a vegetable capsule with 2-3 drops of Clove, Corriander, Cinnamon Bark and V-6, 5 to 6 times a day. I also take one full capsule of Thieves early in the morning. I take Alkalime every night before bed with Immu Power chewable tablets. I also take Vita Green, Essentialzyme, Master Hers, and Super B.

I am convinced that NingXia Red has helped take away my craving for sweets, so that I have easily reduced my food intake and stopped all fast foods, processed foods, pop, tea and am now eating healthy raw vegetables, salads, and lean meats (mostly fish, chicken, and turkey) I also drink alkaline water half my body weight. I have lost 25 pounds since taking Young Living supplements.

Young Living has changed my life. I am 53 years old and two years ago my neighbor died of a heart attack; complications from diabetes. He was 52 and did not take his medication or change his diet. I have tried to change my eating habits many times for the last thirty years, but have not been successful. I believe that I am succussful now because of Young Living's products especially NingXia Red and the essential oils. I no longer take any drug medication and my blood sugar is averaging 160 and below.
