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.


My left lumbar facet joint presses against a ruptured disk at the base of my back, resulting in radiating pain down my left leg. The intuitive thing would be to treat the leg, right? The problem, however, is at my spine, even though it doesn't hurt there. There is noticeable inflammation.

Steroids, anti-inflammatory medication such as Celebrex, is aimed toward lowering the inflammation that makes pain signals race to the brain. If one increases the alkalinity of the blood pH, the same benefit is achieved.

It's helpful to add Lemon essential oil to your drinking water, a couple of drops per 16 ounce glass bottle and continue to sip during the day as its alkalinity helps bind acids in your digestive tract, thus bringing a more alkaline balance to your pH.

But if your system is very acidic like mine is, that's not enough. I don't like Alkalime, it tastes chalky and isn't a pleasure to drink -- but I do take one teaspoon in water every morning and night. I also take 4 capsules of ComforTone per day. We have a family history of cancer of the colon. I feel that I am not only being pro-active in self-care, but am also addressing the problem at the base of my spine.

Since I started taking Alkalime faithfully, the inflammation reduced significantly. My allopathic doctors note it with surprise . . . I haven't converted them and don't expect to. I only aim to change myself, and model what is possible. It has been an effective practice.

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link

8.Associated topics: colon-cancer — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
