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 (neuropathy), sore knees from a former torn ACL and a blood red color traveling up my legs with several bruises and scars 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, Coriander, 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.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."[We] evaluate[d] the efficacy of the Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] in improving cochlear flow and symptoms... for patients with Meniere's disease (MD), tinnitus, and cochlear hypoperfusion.... Symptoms of Meniere's disease [spontaneous vertigo, positional vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, pressure in the ear, unsteady gait], flow at cochlear level, and tinnitus improved in Pycnogenol subjects...."Link
2."DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
3."The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
4."Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic, antihypertensive, antimicrobial, analgesic agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
5."Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
6."We found that d-limonene [in citrus oils] activated peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-alpha signaling, and inhibited liver X receptor (LXR)-beta signaling. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing andameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
7."Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycaemic 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
8."Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidaemia.... 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.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
