In 2005, I fell down the stairs, causing damage to my "plumbing". This condition went undiagnosed for 3.5 years despite many trips to puzzled doctors and specialists. I would later find out that The fall had caused a "break" in the plumbing which caused a pocket (sub-urethral diverticulum) to be formed. This pocket collects matter which usually would be passed through the system and be excreted by the body. The pocket became constantly infected, causing severe pain.
For 3.5 years I had now been on "Keflex" 500 mg., twice a day. It was a constant cycle of pain, infection, antibiotics and yeast infections.
A specialist in the Urology field finally diagnosed the condition. By this time, a gland and much tissue had been destroyed by repeated infection, presenting the surgeon with the difficult task of reconstruction. A week after surgery, the stitches broke and we were back at point zero. The site pain, nerve pain and infection returned.
Months passed and there seemed no hope in sight...the antibiotics were no longer holding the infection for more than a few weeks, then back on more antibiotics. The surgeon could see no alternative except, eventually, another surgery which would leave me incontinent and wearing adult diapers. Oh, yay! At one point I had asked him to proceed with the second surgery, despite the projected outcome. This thing had ruled my life for too long and I could no longer tolerate the pain. The doc asked me to be patient. I am glad I listened.
A good friend had given me a sample of Thieves therapeutic oil to try for a gum problem. I noticed during the week or so period I had used the oil topically on my gums that I had much less discomfort with the plumbing issue. Hmmmmm.... Realizing Thieves therapeutic grade oils could be taken internally, I started taking a couple of drops in water twice a day. Little by little I felt I was gaining ground. Though some nerve pain remained, I could tell that the Thieves was working to control the infection.
A check-up with the amazed surgeon proved I was right. Upon examination, the surgeon found that the infection site was barely visible and it was truly healing!!! I presented the surgeon with a computer print out regarding Thieves being successful in killing even MRSA and explained to him that I had been taking the therapeutic oil orally for the last month. He commented, " I just knew you were coming back requesting another surgery. I don't discount anything. Just keep doing what you are doing".
It has been eight weeks since my last check up with the surgeon. I have no further appointments. - just orders to come back if there is a problem. To date, I am feeling better every day. My strength had been sapped by pain and repeated antibiotics. I had forgotten how good it felt to feel good!
I am now a believer in the power of essential oils and have started my own Young Living distributorship. Not saying that everyone's experience will be the same, but Thieves oil has shown a skeptic or two just how powerful an ally essential oils can be.
If, through my experience, I can bring hope and help to just one person, my journey will have been worthwhile. My advice to people is "Never give up!".
