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.

Well it's almost the end of week 1 here in Utah. This week went so fast. My 5 days at the clinic this past week were very busy. I pretty much had a Raindrop everday. A massage everyday, acupuncture everyday, chiropractic everyday. Used the bicycles in the gym for a little while in between appointments. Had colonics everyday - not to get graphic or anything but they have a TV screen that you can look at to see what is coming out! Needless to say they found parasites & I saw them coming out.....Yuck, but good. I suspected that I did. I had a B.E.F.E treatment everyday to draw out the toxins from the feet from the body. I've had IV therapy everyday - EDTA which chelates heavy metals, Vitamin C IV's, Glutathione which is good for the liver, Hydrogen Peroxide IV's which is good for getting rid of yeast/candida, oxygenating the blood. While all this is going on I am not eating any food whatsoever only the lemonade. I've been fasting 6 days so far. Will continue all next week until I come home - roughly around 14 days.

The staff, doctors & nurses are so nice & caring. If you're not having a good day they say "that's a good thing", "great", "that's wonderful" which encourages you to heal further. I had a follow-up visit for dry blood/live blood cell analysis yesterday & it looked horrible, but she said that was a "good thing" it's because I'm cleansing so much & fasting.

I really look forward to the massage treatments- have had major emotional releases on the table. Haven't cried this much in a long time, but it's a good thing. I've been doing a lot of emotional healing. It's all part of their therapy, my therapy. I look forward to my next emotional clearing session with Louise - it was amazing. The oils, combined with music really open you up & you release a lot of unwanted "gunk".

Today we went to the Young Living Farms in Mona. Spectacular views. Took a lot of pics of the animals. You name it they have it. Llamas, zebras, the white buffalo, donkeys, camels, chickens, reindeer, ostriches,sheep, horses, etc. Took a tour of the farm on a horse pulled carriage. They own so much land out there.

Now I know why the cost of the oils are up there, it's because every herb/plant first seedling is done in their greenhouse & then is taken from there & "hand" planted into the ground by the Young Living workers - no machines.....So maybe now you can appreciate why these oils are so precious & the price is more than others on the market.

Saw the distillery where the oils are made. Also saw Gary Young's new medieval park where jousting takes place. We were talking to one of the workers there & he said that he plans on building an indoor arena that seats around 5,000 people, so they can have jousting tournaments in the winter. It's in the very early stages right now.

He built a little town called The Younger Town & it is set up like the wild west. Had my picture taken with a scarecrow (girl who works there)....It's a fun place to go. They have paddleboats, a rock climbing wall, pony rides for the kids. You can actually buy the products there right on the farm (anything you find online & for distributors you get the PV for it) They have a restaurant there in the Visitors Center & the smell of prime rib was wafting into the air. It smelled so good. So now I know what the farm looks like.

My first full day here we went to Corporate Headquarters & took pictures - no one was working because it was Sunday. The distribution center is right around the corner from the clinic, so Monday I get to pick up my autoship order (no shipping charges).

I took a lot of pictures.......When I get home I will upload them on the web so you can see the farm, etc.

Well it's 6:00 here & getting cooler. I will keep you informed of my progress. I already have my schedule for monday & I am very busy again. Probably will be for the rest of the week. If you wish not to receive my updates just let me know & I won't send them to you.

If any of you ever get to travel out this way you have to visit this area, it's beautiful! If any of you are football fans Dr. Lewis's son plays for the Philadelphia Raiders/Eagles? you can look for him. His name is Chad Lewis. I have no idea what position he plays. Also one of the Osmond (Donnie & Marie Osmond) clan works there. It's Merrill Osmonds son, Shane Osmond, pretty cool. Merrill Osmond was just at the clinic a few weeks ago.

It is 7:00 am here in Provo, UT. Today will be my 2nd day at the Young Living clinic. Yesterday was my initial consultation day. I was excited & anxious not knowing what to expect, but after I got to the clinic & went inside, my anxiety lessened because everyone is so nice here. Without going into to much detail. At 8am I had to learn the specifics along with the other patients (really nice) about what my day would be like, where everything is located in the 2 buildings. Nice facility. So Marci, a nurse there gave us all a tour. Saw where Louise the Iridologist was, live blood cell analysis, the huge exercise room with tons of workout equipment. The chiropractor, Dr. Alsop (great doc). Also, where the BEFE treatments are done, colonic room. Took a walk over to Bldg. 2 & the sky was bright blue with the mountains in the background (breathtaking). In this building is where I had my first Raindrop of the day with Wendy. Dr. Gunther the Acupuncturist is also located in this building. The smells of the oils wafting into the air is so wonderful.

I am happy I am here. I had many things validated & confirmed for me yesterday, which makes me feel more at peace. I started the Lemonade Cleanse (Master Cleanse) yesterday. I have to drink 6-12 glasses per day with water in between. Get to add Juva Power & some other oils that they had on the table. Also have to drink Gary Young's recipe for Vita Flex Juice which is for liver cleansing - tastes really good (beets, celery, carrot, red potato, & radish) 8oz. a day. Also have to drink 8 oz., fresh carrot juice a day. All of these juices are sent up from the Young Living Farm.

Dr. Hill spoke to us yesterday about our journey at the clinic & explained that when we leave for home we will need to continue whatever protocol they give us for 90 days. I've made a commitment to get myself better & it involves work not only physical cleansing but also spiritually & emotional as well. It's work, but it's worth it & what an environment to heal in. I highly recommend this clinic for anyone no matter what state of health you are in. I am proud to be a Young Living Distributor & be a part of the Young Living vision.

It's hard to put everything into words, but I will do my best. The nurses, the staff, the doctors & therapists are such wonderful people. They don't treat you like a number there. They treat you as an individual human being - with much respect, care & love. It was really hard leaving there today.

I was talking to Nicky one of the girls on the staff & she said that they are getting a lot of calls lately thinking that the clinic is a "day spa". Let me make perfectly clear that's it's not & that's what she stressed. They treat the body as a whole there from every aspect & point of view. You have a doctor (Dr. Alsop) & his assistant, Annabelle working on your structural system & nervous system thru Applied Kinesiology Chiropractic. Then you have a Dr. of Acupuncture (chinese medicine) - Dr. Gunther, working on your "chi" or energy deficiencies & imbalances. He uses oils with the needles. Then there is Dr. Lewis who is the head medical doc - great man. There is also Dr. Hill who is chief administrator at the clinic. He is one of the execs.

You then have the nursing staff (Bev - head nurse, Angie, Leslie, Jamie) who take your vitals, weight, etc, & do the IV therapy every single day. I've been poked a lot in the past 2 weeks. I've had Hydrogen Peroxide, EDTA, Vitamin C, Gluthathione. Then you have the nursing assistants who help you with your IV's, getting in & out of the BEFE treatment & any other concerns or questions you may have.

There are 2 colon therapists Rena & Solvie who are great. They've seen my 'poop' for the past 2 weeks. Talk about 'parasite city' for me. Better out than in. The lemonade seems to loosen all the mucous & debris from the body & the colon that builds up (sorry if that was too graphic an image!).

Then you have the great part - the assages: Raindrop, massage therapy, lymphatic drainage all being done by Sheri, Wendy, Sarah & Laura. I've had treatments with all of them & they are all great & so nice!

Then there is Louise Harvey who does Iridology & emotional clearing with the oils. She's an amazing person. Had 3-4 emotional clearing sessions with her. I recommend them highly. There is Tammy & Laura who do the Dry Blood/Live Blood analysis.

There is Carrie who does the nutrition part with supplements, Joy who is the office manager to help you with billing questions, etc. Sadie who works the front desk..

Everyone at the clinic is so nice & accommodating. They help you out with any need you have & make you feel at home. I met some great people from all walks of life that traveled large distances to get well. Everyone had their own stories to share. It's been a great experience for me. It's amazing how quickly you bond with everyone. Everyone is there for one major reason to get well & the support was amazing. Even though the room was filled almost everyday with people with varying degrees of illness, there was always laughter in the air. Something that Dr. Lewis & the staff stress immensely. So they not only work on the physical body, but the mental & spiritual as well. It's all connected & all goes together.

To be truthfully honest I can't tell you everyday was a piece of cake. There were many days I didn't feel well because of the cleansing process. The Master Cleanse stirs up a lot of emotions & toxins & old 'lovely' things surface. That's where emotional clearing comes in. Days I was up & excited & positive. Some that were depressing. Some I just couldn't figure out, but in the end it's all worth the huge effort that myself & every patient puts forth to get better.

I highly recommend this clinic to anyone - even if you think you are well you will be surprised what comes out & surfaces. It can be scary at times, but there is a constant support system there to make it easier.

My two weeks have been a great adventure & if I need to come back I don't think I would hesitate because the results I've seen so far in myself have been great. I'm not 100%, I am not 'cured', my problems aren't over, but now I know what I have & how to take care of it. It's a journey & it can be rough at times, but that's life - isn't it. I have more work to do on myself (physically, emotionally & spiritually).

So I will sign off, because I am getting teary eyed just writing this. I hope you all enjoyed my updates. If any of you want more in depth details, please contact me with the above link.
