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.

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in my mid 40's but had been experiencing joint and muscle pain for years. I began taking Enbrel injections twice weekly along with Plaquenil and Celebrex. Because the Enbrel suppressed my immune system, I had chronic sinusitis and bronchitis and was on frequent rounds of antibiotics. Then on top of that, I began experiencing depression and I was prescribed and began taking Paxil and some Zanax.

I moved and found a new physician who recommended I stop taking the Enbrel injections because my immune system was being depressed. She also recommended a blood test to see if I was "reacting" to some foods and then eliminate those identified. This helped some, but there was still lots of pain.

Then along came a family member who introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils and oil enhanced supplements along with a super-antioxidant drink called NingXia Red.

I began drinking 2 ounces of NingXia Red, took OmegaGize, BLM, Sulfurzyme and used oils topically. Wow, what a difference! I no longer woke up with debilitating pain and I started exercising again.

It was incredible. About 4 months after starting the supplements, drink and oils I woke up and realized, "My pain is completely gone!" Since then, I've left the hospital setting where I worked as an RN in administration and have a passion to share these remarkable oils and products with everyone who will listen.

I've found that Peppermint is awesome for sinus problems and have NEVER had another sinus infection!!
