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.

I cancelled a dental appointment in mid-January 1998, because my back was hurting. My lower back and left leg pain increased daily until I could endure it no more and sought medical care. I chose chiropractic treatments over hospitalization and/or surgery.

In addition to the treatments I was given instructions on the spinal maneuvers that I needed to do at home. I did these faithfully and they aided my body's response to the treatments. It was very inconvenient and painful to get to my first ten, daily visits.

Sitting down was excruciating and driving was worse. I was unable to hold my adjustments. Sometimes just driving back home would eliminate any improvement I had received from the chiropractic treatments.

After a year of chiropractic treatments and limited improvement in holding my adjustments, I discovered that Young Living had some essential oils that I could use in a supportive way during my treatments.

I started to use the Valor and PanAway oil blends regularly and always before my treatments. I started to hold my adjustments and within 3 months L 4 went back into place and the spongy disc material returned.

My treatment schedule was reduced to preventive care only.
