My daughter who is 8 months pregnant with her fifth child was recently diagnosed
with a pelvic pain condition called Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). This condition involves a misalignment of the pubic bones making walking, sitting, standing...absolutely any movement unbelievably painful. She has had this condition with her last two babies and had been basically confined to her recliner for the last two months of each pregnancy.

A recent trip to the obstetrician/osteopath had helped her for a day or so but he was not
sure that the effect of the manipulation would last. The treatment was no longer working.

I found her one morning sitting on the bed sobbing. She couldn't do anything as simple
as lift her foot off the floor. I had read that Valor, known as "chiropractor in a bottle", could be applied topically to realign the spine and rubbed three drops into each shoulder and three drops to the ball and bottom of her feet. Within five minutes, she was walking around the room and had no pain. Nothing short of amazing!!! We have found that this application twice a day has helped her tremendously. Though not totally free of discomfort during the day, she is able to move around and is not confined to her recliner.

We are so grateful for the purity of Young Living Essential Oils. They are truly a Godsend.

NOTE: Not all oils are approved for use during pregnancy, so please check your oils reference books before application of any essential oils.
