Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
In 1961, when I was in second grade, I contracted Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia, which some doctors refer to as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). This indicates that it's part of the polio family. For me, this means that nearly every system in my body is affected. My list of symptoms would make a small book. At the time I was introduced to therapeutic-grade essential oils in 1997, I had been "severely disabled," according to the Social Security Administration, for over 30 years.
In 1982, I found a chiropractor/nutritionist who helped me a LOT. He took me from almost dead to almost functional (on good days); yet, even with chasing after anything that offered hope of recovery, I was still unable to even think about work. I was always in significant pain, experienced profound fatigue on more days than not, could not exercise to any significant degree, and made no conditioning gains when I could.
Then I met a guy on the phone (I was buying some Bible software from Logos Research Systems) who told me that his wife had been helped a lot with essential oils. Though skeptical (I'd heard it all MANY times before), I agreed to let her send me some information. The packet included the Missing Link tape. The potential of the oils sounded quite amazing, but it took me forever to actually act on the information. I bought the Aromatherapy 101 kit and an aromatherapy reference, just to get a start, then took another year to get started.
When my doctor informed me that I had some occlusions in the blood vessels in my legs, I decided it was time to stop fooling around, and see what the essential oils could do. I started using the oils in a massive way; and while their use was purely recreational, I was impressed by the coincidental remission of almost all of my symptoms.
Within a month, the occlusions in my legs had cleared to the point that my doctor assumed there had been a misdiagnosis. I felt stronger, more energetic, much more flexible, lighter, had a bounce in my step and was all but pain free. In my Fibromyalgia support group, I'm the only one NOT on medications, and I'm feeling SO-O-O-O much better than all those relying on a medical solution.
While not cured, by any means, using therapeutic-grade essential oils has enabled me to start my own business. I consider them a God-send. They have redefined for me the meaning of "health".
