I've been in and out of therapy for herniated discs in my back for years. I do o.k. most of the time but, have flare up occassionally. In Feb. 2010 I herniated 2 discs in my neck and promptly went to my chiropractor. After 2 months of treatment/therapy etc., there was little improvement so, he recommended steriods -shots or pill form. I could sleep in an elevated position, thank God but, couldn't eat sitting down - had to eat standing and driving was painful - and I drive a lot with my job.
Steroids were next. I had taken oral steriods at 3 different times in my life for herniated discs and shingles. It took 10 years to get rid of the weight I packed on as a result plus get my health back and I didn't want to go through that again. Shots anywhere near my spinal cord just plain scare me. So, I researched on oils-testimonials.com and the Essential Oil Pocket Reference and decided to try a cocktail of Idaho Balsam Fir, Wintergreen and Peppermint on my poor neck. I had an MRI done so, I knew where the injuries where. I applied only about 3 or so drops of the Idaho Balsam Fir, 4 - 6 drops of Wintergreen and the same of Peppermint 4 - 6 times a day right over the injured areas or vertebrates and the painful muscles and repeated whenever the pain came back. I noticed relief within 10 - 20 min. of each application and every 2 - 3 days the number of applications needed diminished.
After 6 weeks I felt so good it was like nothing had ever happened. It was amazing how fast it healed - naturally and without steriods. I no longer need the oils and take Superzyme and BLM as daily maintenance and continue with therapy to keep everything strong and healthy. These oils/products have given back a quality of life I wouldn't otherwise be enjoying.
