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.

In 2004, I was diagnosed with ALS by two neurologists. since my primary neurologist advised me to, "Go home. Get your affairs in order and enjoy whatever time you have left." I recognized I had to search for help on my own.

This is what I did to help myself when diagnosed with ALS.

* Went to my acupuncturist who saw me every 2 weeks and treated me with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. She also acted as my quarterback since the neurologist told me to “Go home. Get my affairs in order and enjoy what time I had left.”
* I completed a will and an Advanced Directive for Health Care.
* Went to a Biologic Dentist and had all my mercury fillings removed.
* Used an oral chelation spray twice a day.
* Removed all sugar, chemicals, preservatives, artificial sweeteners from my diet and ate as organically as possible. I also began following a vegan diet. John McDougall website.
* Read the book," Eric is winning! I" found it off the internet when I googled ALS. The last chapter of his book is entitled “things I wish I’d done sooner”. I started doing these things right away.
* Read the book," A Mouth Full of Poison" by Dr. Myron Wentz.
* Received a Raindrop Technique session every week using the Dallas method and Young Living Essential Oils. Since the molecular weights of these organic oils are low enough, they can cross the blood/brain barrier and go to the source of the problems. Oils in sequence: Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil (or Balsam Fir) Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram and Peppermint.
* I began taking 800 mg CoQ10 twice a day.
* I meditated on positive things and prayed every day for my body to do the work it had been created to do.
* I deleted everyone from my immediate circle who was negative or perceived by me as an “emotional vampire”.
* I continued to exercise everyday. Mostly, I walked my dogs.
* I had a Physical Therapy evaluation to determine my weaknesses and to help me with exercises to keep what I had strong. (When I was diagnosed, my left leg would not always hold me and I was incapable of running.)
* I didn’t give up! Not even when the fear of what might happen to me was overwhelming in the wee hours of the night.
* I also suggest the book, The Better Brain Book by David Perlmutter MD. Chapter 17 is all about helping yourself with ALS.

Today I am quite well. My left leg is a little weaker than my right from peroneal nerve damage. I can do heavy construction work as a volunteer for my church for 8-12 hours per day. this involves many types of work (shoveling, using a pick axe, traffic control, driving heavy equipment and a great deal of walking on uneven surfaces. I believe the raindrop therapy with the essential oils was a significant part of my recovery. I am grateful to my massage therapist for learning and sharing what she knew about the treatment.
