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.

While standing in a local restaurant after church one Sunday, my teenage son, who is extremely athletic suddenly experienced a terrible pain in his back. He could barely shuffle his feet across the floor in order to get to the table where we were seated. Since this was before experiencing Young Living's amazing products I did what any mother would do ...I took him to the doctor. Several doctors actually.

After many x-rays and tests, all of them said it was a muscle spasm and to give him meds for the pain every 4-6 hours for the next 5-7 days and maybe he'd get better. Maybe? I had no desire to drug my child on that diagnosis.

After all, he had a karate tournament coming up that weekend and a State Championship title to defend. He desperately needed relief and wanted to compete so I prayed and while still in the last doctor's office I called a friend.

My friend had been using Young Living products for a while. She told me that if he was able to travel to her house she's try to help provide some relief for him. With tears of pain in his eyes he crept out of the doctor's office and into my car.

Upon arriving at my friend's house she explained all about the 100% pure oils Young Living offers ands my son agreed to give it a try. She did a Raindrop Technique on him.

It was 2:45 when we left her house that Wednesday afternoon and at 5:30, not even 3 hours later he was at the church in the gym playing basketball and dodge ball with the other youth. How amazing! This occurred probably about 1 1/2 years ago and he hasn't suffered any more pain as a result of the muscle spasm.

To God be the Glory!

Oh, for those of you who might be wondering he was able to attend & compete in the karate tournament 3 days later & won in all 3 events. Thanks Gary Young & Dr. David Stewart for educating us on how to use pure, natural products.

One last this day he will not go to a karate tournament, basketball game, or volleyball match without his Deep Relief, PanAway, & Peppermint on the sideline.
