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 precious five year old grandson, Noah was given to us by the courts to raise as our son when he was only three months old. You can imagine how heartbreaking it was for my husband and I to discover Noah exhibiting signs of autism between the ages of two and three.

The first indication that something was wrong was when Noah would not bond with us as his parents. Thinking that it was due to abuse that he had received in his first two months of life, we were concerned when he did not want to be held or refused to maintain eye contact when we spoke with him. Later, we learned that this is a sign of autism.

Continuing with other traits of autism, he began to obsess with things that turn and tried to spin everything. He focused on things to the point of not responding when we called to him, and would ignore us, even when we tried bribing him with a toy, until we physically went to him and touched him. Noah wouldn't talk to us. His only words were sentences memorized from movies; he appeared to live in his own little world.

For several months I resisted the idea of taking him to a doctor who might diagnose his problem. However, he saw his regular pediatrician often for chronic congestion, sore throat, runny nose, and earaches. Every few weeks Noah was on a new course of antibiotics. Our doctor saw the possibility of autism in his behavior and sent us to a specialist, who confirmed our fears of autism.

She identified Noah as being in a "highly functional autism spectrum" and recommended that he be immediately enrolled in an Early Intervention Program. We enrolled him in PPCD, a early intervention program for special needs children, in our school district. About the same time a friend suggested that I look into Essential Oils as treatment instead of all of the antibiotics that Noah had been taking.

In our research, we found that Young Living products were the best available. We began by putting two drops of Thieves on his feet every night, while using RC and Eucalyptus Blue on his chest for congestion and Peppermint diluted with oil in his navel for fever.

We used Peace & Calming and Lavender to calm him and DiGize when needed for constipation. Above his eyebrows and on his upper spine, we applied Frankincense. Every morning before school, we put Brainpower on his temples. Between the ages of four and five, Noah only saw his doctor a few times. If I could not figure out what was wrong, I took him in for a diagnosis and then treated him with essential oils.

Noah was and still is very intelligent. He knew every engine in the Thomas the Train series, watched every Thomas video, and memorized everything he heard. He repeated large portions of the video dialogs as he played with his trains. By the age of four, Noah counted to 150 by 2's, 5's, and 10's. He learned his phonics and could spell over forty words including the color words.

Although he knew his ABC's, he would not consider holding a pencil to learn to write. Carrying on his own conversation, he repeated movie dialogs for hours but could not tell us if he was hungry or thirsty. By age five, he was still not toilet trained. He did not react to pain nor could he tell us where he was hurting. He was easily angered.

In January of 2009, I read a book titled "Children with Starving Brains", A Medical Treatment Guide for Autism Spectrum Disorder, by Jacquelyn McCandless MD. Dr. McCandless wrote that many autistic children do not have the necessary enzymes to process their food and recommended a gluten-free, casein-free diet. If this has worked for you, then I admire you. We tried and Noah lost several of his precious pounds which led us to finally look for another way.

After more research and attending a Young Living Convention, I found Mightyzymes chewable tablets that supply a child's body with enzymes to break down food. It was a hit and miss proposition but slowly we began seeing improvement. Noah became more loving, and wanted to be held. Taking us by the hand, he led us to things he needed. In April 2009, we put him in "unders", instead of a diaper during the day.

He began to ask people their names. At the end of May 2009, I made the commitment to give him three Mightyzymes a day every day. By the end of June 2009, he was bursting out of his shell. He began talking in a conversational mode. One day he completely blew me away by telling me, "Mommy, cook me some food." I knew that was not from a movie.

Today is July 28, 2009 and Noah is beginning to ask and answer questions, and carry on some normal conversation. Loving and social, he wants us to play with him, watch movies with him, and read to him. He is a little person who wants to have a relationship with us.

Noah can tell me what he wants to eat, that his toe hurts, and even that I should not go to work today because there is a thunderstorm outside. At night, he no longer wears diapers. We are still in awe of the changes that the last sixty days have made in our son.

I believe that Young Living Mightyzymes and the Essential Oils have played a huge part in the progress that we have seen in Noah. We may still have a long way to go, but the progress we have seen is so promising. Trying the Mightyzymes and the essential oils is such a small step to take.

Perhaps you may not see the extreme results that we have seen with Noah, but it is well worth trying. We will always give glory and honor to our Heavenly Father for the joy we have with our son and for the salvation we have through His Son.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: antibiotic — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
3.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature-/-(Pyrexia) — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... 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
4.Associated topics: constipation-/-irregularity — "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
5.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
6.Associated topics: anger-/-frustration — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
7.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
8.Associated topics: congestion-/-mucus-/-phlegm — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
