Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
After a disabling acccident 1998 in which one cervical vertebra was crushed, the subsequent years found that one by one, the discs on top of the crushed disc collapsed. I have had yearly MRI's that show c4,c5,c6, and c7 as collapsed. These discs, along with lots of connective tissue and muscle, are what holds up our 10 pound head. The surgeons told me every MRI that I had no future without surgery, to include crushed disc removal, replacement with metal, and fusion above and below. As the years progressed, I lapsed into immobility, pain,and deep depression.
My "up time" for being vertical was about 6 hours a day. I joined Young Living but did not fully embrace the CONSISTENCY needed to change at a cellular level until summer 2009. I began to use a broad spectrum of oils in every way possible, and NingXia Red twice a day, along with every oxygen enhancing activity I could manage (Chi machine, massage therapy, etc) I also methodically eliminated every possible chemical from health & beauty products and processed foods that might inhibit my recovery. Diet was a big piece of this.On March 19, 2010 my MRI results were presented as "inexplicable, and remarkable" by my surgeon, who knew I was implementing alternative methods, and only said that if others knew what I knew he would be out of business. I had grown sacs around the crushed vertebrae where my spinal cord had been grinding, creating neural events which I tracked over the last couple of years.
The MRI showed that, inside those sacs was spinal fluid, protecting my spinal cord from touching broken bone pieces. As I had refused surgery, pain killer drugs and (especially ibuprofen and acetaminifen)in favor of herbal remedies, I now believe that the oils set my body up for regeneration, and the other modalities ushered in the required elements for healing. My vertical time is vastly improved, I lost 60 pounds of useless fat, and my life is more vibrant and hopeful that it has been since my accident. Oh yeah, and thanks to my diligent physical therapist, I get to look at the 2009 and 2010 MRI side by side anytime I want to smile and thank Gary D. Young for his offerings to the world.
