My father in law is an 87 year old alzheimer's sufferer and my mother in law is his caregiver. He is diabetic and has some peripheral circulation loss. A month ago on an overnight visit, my mother in law told me he had an ulcer on his ankle. When I asked how long he had the ulcer, she told me about a year.

She had thought the right thing to do was to keep it under a bandage. When she removed a bandage on the ankle, he had a raised whitish area about 20 mm across, with a red surround. In the centre was a hole about 1mm across, and the whole area was extremely tender to the touch.

I took a very small piece of cotton wool to which I applied one drop of Myrrh, and then gently wiped the cotton wool over the area. I then did the same with one drop of Frankincense. This was done at around 7 pm. At around 9 pm he went to bed with no bandage or covering on the wound.

In the morning at 7am, 12 hours later the swelling had almost disappeared, the area was now able to be gently touched without him flinching, and the hole was nearly closed. I applied the same treatment again and that evening the hole was completely closed.

Over the next week, the wound continued to disappear. The ulcer is now gone completely. My mother in law expressed her amazement at the speed of improvement. These oils are a wonderful gift to us all.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: diabetes — "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
2.Associated topics: diabetes — "Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic [cholesterol-lowering] actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
3.Associated topics: diabetes — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
4.Associated topics: diabetes — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic 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
5.Associated topics: diabetes — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... 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
6.Associated topics: ulcer — "In the present study, we have evaluated the gastroprotective activity of turmeric essential oil (TEO) and ginger essential oil (GEO) in rats.... Histopathological examination showed that ethanol-induced lesions such as necrosis, erosion, and hemorrhage of the stomach wall were significantly reduced after oral administration of essential oils.... Results suggest that TEO and GEO could reduce the gastric ulcer in rat stomach as seen from the ulcer index and histopathology of the stomach. Moreover, oxidative stress produced by ethanol was found to be significantly reduced by TEO and GEO."Link
7.Associated topics: alzheimers-(dementia) — "[N]utraceuticals derived from such spices as turmeric, red pepper, black pepper, licorice, clove, ginger, garlic, coriander, and cinnamon target inflammatory pathways, and thereby may prevent neurodegenerative diseases."Link
