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 uncle, in his late 70s, contracted pneumonia after a recent surgery. His wife asked if there were any oils/supplements she could give him that would help to "wake him up." He is in a nursing home, convalescing.

I suggested she apply RC to his chest and feet and En-R-Gee to his forehead. The staff nutritionist was concerned that his nutrition levels were very low and my aunt wanted to know if I had anything for that. I replied, NingXia Red.

I supplied her with the 1 0z packets and information to share with the staff nutritionist. After a few days the nutritionist asked my aunt to sign a waiver releasing the nursing home from any responsibility for a decline in my uncle's health from administration of the NingXia Red, which only my aunt gives through his feeding tube. 3 days later he was more alert than he had been in 3 weeks. He continued becoming more alert and the swelling he had in his extremities was going down. My aunt continued to give him 1 oz/day until he developed blisters, at which time she discontinued the NingXia Red for a week. During that time he lapsed back into sleep and listlessness.

My aunt is going to return to his 1 oz/day regimen, hoping to bring him back to a level where he can begin therapy again.
