We have a son who is now 5. He had meningitis when he was 15 months and since that time, every winter comes down with bronchitis/RSV type illnesses. He was hospitalized when he was 2 and put into an oxagen tent for 5 days. He just constantly had a terrible cough and phlem and had trouble breathing. He had a nebulizer that we used a lot.
We saw specialists in Iowa City. They thought at first he may have had Cystic Fibrosis but he didn't. Anyway, he would get so sick and then he wouldn't eat....so not only was he sick all the time, but he was not growing! The only oils I had at this time were pepperming and lavender and a few drops of Thieves that I had bought from my sponsor for a recent toothache. One evening, it was fairly late, my son got up and was complaining of an earache. I got my oils down and thought I had the lavender, put a drop on his chest and then some on his ears. And then I realized that in my sleepy state, I had grabbed the wrong bottle! I had put thieves on him instead of lavender. I was so worried that his skin would start to burn! I got out my veg. oil and put some on him and we were off to bed!
The next morning he woke up and started coughing terribly! It was a croop like cough and I thought "OH NO, WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MY SON!!" I called my sponsor and she told me that she didn't believe in accidents, that Kaleb probably needed the Thieves and that it was just doing it's job getting to the "bug" before it had time to settle in his little lungs. She asked me if he had broken out from the oil and he hadn't, so she told me to put some more on, just the way I had the night before, and to call her later that day with an update. So, I put on all three of the oils I had at that time and the cough was still there. His ear didn't hurt but he was still coughing like the croop. My sponsor gave me some RC and told me to try that with what I was already using. So I did and by the time he went to bed that night the cough was sounding a whole lot better. And the next day, it was GONE!
Since that day my son has not had ONE BOUT OF BRONCHITIS, RSV, or ASTHMA TYPE ILLNESS!! I put the oils of Thieves, RC, Peppermint and Lavender on his feet and chest every night and he DOES NOT GET SICK ANYMORE!! He will complain of an earache maybe one or two times during the year, but a drop of lavender on a cotton ball in his ear is all it takes and in hours, his earache is gone!! How wonderful it was to throw out the nebulizer and all of the antibiotics AND TO SEE HIM EAT!
He is still small for his age but he is growing now and eating like a horse!! He's a little guy, but he doesn't have to struggle any more to breathe! He can play in the snow and we don't worry about him catching cold. To have healthy children is the greatest gift and I am so thankful to Young Living!! Our lives have been changed so profoundly and I could never express my gratitude in words! These oils ore awesome! We are truly blessed!
