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.

Kevin and I became Young Living members in 1998. Ever since we sniffed our first bottle of oil, we were hooked. We knew we'd hit upon something exceptional that would benefit ourselves as well as others. Our life altering experience with these oils didn't occur until February of 2003.

It was at that time that we decided to build a business with Young Living. We had our sponsor, Jen Crippen, teach a class in our home on a Friday night. Mac, our 10 year old Akita, thought the party was for him. He bounced & danced around showing off for all our friends. Once the class started, he settled down to enjoy the aroma of the oils wafting throughout our home.

The next day, Kevin noticed that Mac's energy level was on the low side-something extremely unusual for him. By Sunday, Mac was basically incapacitated to the point where he wasn't even able to get up to go out & relieve himself. He was literally dead weight. We took him to his regular vet on Monday where they felt there wasn't anything they could do for him. They'd taken chest X-rays & found a dark mass pressing against his left lung which was also stressing his heart. They suggested that we take him to an internist & gave him drugs which they knew weren't going to do anything for him. The vets felt so bad for him that they just wanted to do something. After a biopsy from the veterinary internist, she was all but 100% positive that the dark mass was cancer. Not only that, but he had primary cardiac disease. We also discovered that Mac went from 100 lbs down to 89 lbs.

I immediately called Jen & asked her about her holistic vet. Dr Deb Rykoff (Jen's sponsor) had us come in at her earliest available time slot. She had Mac taking oils internally as well as externally along with other supplements, chiropractic & acupuncture to support him in his healing.

To make a long story short, Mac was bouncing around 2 weeks later as if nothing ever happened. Since then, he's had a couple of 'slow days' that haven't lasted more than 3-4 days at a time. We've changed some of his oils & he still loves having them massaged onto his ears. While he trots comfortably on his daily walks, it has me running to keep up behind him. He's back to his 'fighting weight' of 100 lbs & is the strong, energetic, happy & loving dog that we've always had. All we can say is thank God for these lifesaving oils! I truly believe that he wouldn't still be with us without them.

Addendum as of 8/19/04: Mac went to Dr. Deb today for vaccine exemption. She said his heart was fine. No problems! We're going to up his intake on NingXia Red, start him on Mineral Essence, Vitagreen & Sulfurzyme. Anyway, it looks like we're going to be celebrating his 12th birthday on September 17th.
