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 just wanted to take a few minutes and let you in on some things that I have learned about essential oils and Alzheimer's Disease. First of all as you well know if you have ever dealt with this horrible disease, it is not something that is easy to deal with. I take care of the elderly at home for end of life care.

One of my favorite people of all time that I took care of in her end of life stage was my dear sweet Mary. She was a very young victim, only 65 years old when she left this world. I took care of her for about a year. When I first started taking care of Mary in her home, upon entering that home it smelled very strong of urine and feces. She was incontinent both of bladder and bowel.

In caring for Mary, I sought out an Alzheimer's support group in order to increase my knowledge of the care she needed and deserved. It is there that I met my mentor and was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils. I listened very intently to what she was saying...all the while "This is what you need" was ringing in my head. I could hardly wait to get on board with this obvious miracle.

I set up a time with Gloria to set up my new distributorship. I ordered the Essential 7 kit. Of course waiting for it to arrive was like Chinese water torture. It finally arrived and I immediately started using the oils on myself and on Mary. The first day I didn't really notice a difference. The second day however was a very different story.

Mary used to get quite agitated at different times of the day and had much difficulty getting any good rest. I looked through my essential oil guide to see what I could use. I decided on the Peace & Calming oil blend.

The effects were almost instant! She immediately became very quiet and relaxed; She began smiling and softly whispering to me as we sat on the couch. Within a matter of minutes Mary was sleeping peacefully. This was the first time I had seen her sleep so soundly.

I started immediately reading as much as I possibly could about these oils and Alzheimer's Disease, only to find that there really wasn't much information on this subject. So I began to experiment. I'll tell you more a bit later of what I learned and the oils I used.

Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
2.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowels — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
3.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowels — "A 4 weeks treatment with peppermint oil improves abdominal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.... The symptoms evaluated were: abdominal bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, feeling of incomplete evacuation, pain at defecation, passage of gas or mucus, and urgency at defecation."Link
4.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowels — "In traditional folk medicine, tarragon [Artemisia dracunculus L. (Asteraceae)] has been used for treatment of pain and gastrointestinal disturbances.... This study reported the peripheral and central antinociceptive activity of the EOAD [essential oil of A. dracunculus] and rationalized the traditional use of the plant in the treatment of different painful conditions."Link
5.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowels — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
6.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowels — "Phytogenic compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are currently discussed as promising complementary agents in prevention and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our study aimed to evaluate possible protective and curative effects of broccoli extract (BE) and of the essential oils of turmeric (Cuo), thyme (To), and rosemary (Ro) in a rat model with a mild dextran sulphate sodium- (DSS-) induced colitis.... We conclude that the phytogenic additives tested have a promising anti-inflammatory potential in vivo and a particular role in the prevention of IBD."Link
