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.

Back in March, 2009, I was at death's door. I had a low blood sugar coma while in the car with my husband. I had no idea of what was happening. My husband thought I was throwing a hissy fit. My girlfriend, who was in the car with us, said no that they needed to get me to the hospital quickly. I was not eating properly and was not taking proper care of myself. My will to live was gone.

I was on 17 medications a day, to try and stabilize my body, mind and spirit and was not working. I was on 52 units of Lantus (long-acting) insulin a day, and 14 units (to scale) of Novolog short-acting insulin at meals and bed. None of this was balancing me.

While at the ER I had a near death experience, going to heaven, seeing everything in white. I saw people walking to and fro. I did not hear any conversations or talk with anyone. After being there for a time, I was transported back to the earth plane with the proviso that I let people know that there is a better way to live.

I awoke in the ER asking where I was, as I did not immediately recognize where I was. The doctor who was very close to me, heard my request and said that I was very, lucky to have made it back, as many who have a blood sugar as low as mine don't get to come back.

I made a conscious decision at that time that I had to make some drastic changes in my life. I started doing these changes with the help of a friend, Trish O'Connell, who is an LPN, and a health educator and consultant from Rochester, NY.

She taught me a better way to plan my day, which was to have 6 small (1/2 size) meals a day rather than 3 regular size meals. I watched the starches and breads that I took in, eating very little of them. I also did not eat dairy products because they were hard to digest.

She also taught me a regular exercise plan of walking a mile a day. In addition she showed me that taking all natural, 100 percent pure vitamins and supplements that have not been subjected to preservatives would be much healthier for me.

The only ones that I have found that meet these criteria come from Young Living Essential Oils. I have found this to be very helpful for me. Because since I have been faithful to this diet regimen, I have consistently lost weight, now losing some 70 pounds.

I also have gotten off all the 17 medications I was taking each day, have gotten off the CPAP machine to help me breathe at night, as I now have regular oxygen pressure at night, and sleep regularly.

I have also just in the past 9 months been regaining sight in my eyes that I never had. In January my vision was 20/60. After using the Frankincense on a continual basis for some 6 months, placing a drop of the oil on each palm and holding it over the eyes for 20 minutes and deep breathing it in, my vision was 20/40. I don't ever remember my vision ever being at that measurement.

I have truly been given many miracles, and give all glory, praise and thanks to God for His grace and mercy. I also thank God for learning about the oils. It has truly been a miracle mind set shift change in my life.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: diabetes — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
2.Associated topics: diabetes,insulin — "Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic [cholesterol-lowering] actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
3.Associated topics: diabetes,insulin — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
4.Associated topics: diabetes,insulin — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
5.Associated topics: weight-loss,diabetes,insulin,diet — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
6.Associated topics: continuous-positive-airway-pressure-(CPAP) — "This double-blind study suggests a significant reduction in snoring reported by bed partners in a group of snoring volunteers using either an essential oil spray or gargle formulation."Link
7.Associated topics: vision-/-eyesight — "Researchers report that carnosic acid, a component of the herb[s] rosemary [and sage], promotes eye health. The team found that carnosic acid protects retinas from degeneration and toxicity.... Their findings suggest that carnosic acid may have clinical applications for the outer retina, including age-related macular degeneration."Link
8.Associated topics: weight-loss,diet — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice. The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases."Link
