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 husband has this terrible condition and this is how we are fighting it. First I want to note, he has back pain due to car accidents, thus he takes pain killers. He was relatively healthy (past bodybuilder champion) and not overweight.

My husband was injured during a regular bench press workout, he thought he tore a muscle. He rested for a few days, noticed a swelling in the chest and was in awful pain! We went to the Emergency Room and listened to many different opinions as to the source of the pain.

Meanwhile, I chose to look to look for a different answer. An acidic pH allows bacteria, viruses, parasites, microbes and yeast to grow. My husband craves sugar! Sugar fuels these microbes and the inflammation worsens. My theory is that he was loaded with yeast and they migrated to a weak area of the body, an injury.

A simple home test for yeast is spitting into a clear cup of water first thing after awakening. If the spit has little strings falling from it, then it's yeast. Since we started treating this as a yeast infection, he has progressively improved.

He is now able to move his arm again, some of the swelling has gone down, and he is able to get sleep. Unfortunately, since this is a painful condition, he takes painkillers which are acidic. My goal for him is to raise his pH to 7.5 and hold it for 4 days. It's been a struggle, but he will get there and the yeast will be gone!

Our method of treatment involves prayer, therapeutic-grade essential oils, alkaline water, DMSO, baking soda, iodine, magnesium, alkalizing minerals, NingXia Red juice, whole food supplements, molybdenum, pantothenic acid, omega 3-6-9, coconut oil, candida diet, enzymes to fight candida, 200 Billion probiotics with 10 species or more, low level laser and sunshine.

We can't afford to do the hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) often, just when he's in severe "I don't want to go on" pain. He always feels better after! I must say these parasites make him crave sugar and when he eats any type of sugar at all, even the more natural sugars like honey or maple syrup, it causes problems.

If you would like more details, please feel free to email me and I would be happy to share info on what is helping my husband. I don't believe that yeast is a cause for everyone, but it is something to look into. Start by checking your saliva and urine pH in the morning by using litmus paper.

My husband avoided antibiotics since they kill off good and bad bacteria. We need the good gut bacteria. This is where we need the oils like the Thieves oil blend, Myrrh, Oregano, Copaiba, Tea Tree, Frankincense oil , Grapefruit, and Peppermint. I'm sure if there was an oil to choose, he tried it!

Every exposure to radiation weakens the body's defenses and strengthens the intruders.

This goes for CT scans, xrays, microwave dinners, cell phones, wi-fi areas, even smart meters which weaken the body and are all EMF pollution.

God provided what we need, the medicines are the plants of the earth. The Bible mentions the oils over 260 times... time to start listening!

The oils are excellent anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory powerhouses!
