As most of you know, we have spent this summer at our summer home, which is about 150 miles south of the Young Living Mona farm. We have taken pride in the fact that neither one of us has been ill in over 8 years, using no drugs and no doctor visits, we don't even have a doctor. We choose to take responsibility for our own health and welfare.

We have done some construction this summer adding on to our deck and rebuilding stairs, which required working in the soil, gravel and dust. Over the years we have had our fair share of rodents from deer mice, pack rats, squirels and chipmunks. But it seems this year brought a lot more mice and rats wanting to enjoy the comforts near our home and on our front deck. We have caught over 50 mice and 12 pack rats since the first of June.

After we had almost completed the construction, Shauna became very ill with the flu symptoms. Keep in mind we choose to not to participate with any kind of sickness. Symptoms were extreme headaches, nausea, diarrhea, shaking, no energy. Then two days later Richard started with the same symptoms. We did our research and concluded that this may very be the Hantavirus. Knowing there are no known 'helps' in the medical field, we chose to do the following:

Increased our NingXia Red (8 ozs a day each)
Increased Immupro from one a night to 3 or 4 per night.
Increased using Immunetune from one to 3 capsules a day.
*Immunetune is no longer available, so we would suggest using InnerDefense Capsules

Every glass of water we drank had about 4 to 6 drops of DiGize.

Used our Natural antibiotic recipe, in a capsule, taken 1-3 times per day:

8 drops Frankincense
4 drops Mountain Savory
3 drops Oregano
2-4 drops Lemon

Plus we use lots of Thieves internally by just dropping the drops in our mouth. We also use many oils on our feet and our heads because of the extreme head aches. After 4 days of Shauna following this she started back to being herself. Since Richard's started two days after Shauna he took him about 4 days too to start feeling he was going to make it. Several people told us to get to a hospital and we scoffed as to why? We know more about how to take care of ourselves than they do.

The only thing we regret is not having our blood drawn to confirm whether or not we really did have this mouse disease. Over the last 8+ years we have felt we 'bullet proof'. I guess we still are as long as we use our Young Living products. This is a firm reminder for all of us to keep our immune systems up!
