My name is Jackie Moe. In early October, 2010, our youngest son, Jim, age 37, was diagnosed with pneumonia and was put on antibiotics. This was not unusual as Jim has had a history of pneumonia.
Four days later, Jim was still home sick from work with a temperature in excess of 102 degrees. His daughter was also home sick from school that day and had called grandma (me) concerned about her dad. 911 was called and paramedics arrived to find Jim having a seizure. Medication was given to stop the seizing and a ventilator was inserted to aid his breathing. Jim was transported to ICU at United Hospital in St. Paul, MN.
A series of different tests were done...blood, an MRI, lumbar spinal tap, EKG, brain scans etc. None of the tests offered any positive answers, however they did further diagnose Jim with encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain and they felt it was from some kind of a bug or tick bite. They kept Jim sedated in an induced coma to calm his agitation. Daily attempts made to regain his consciousness were unsuccessful due to his agitation
On day 2 in ICU, I asked the Infectious Disease doctor if he had any objections to topically applying some therapeutic grade essentials oils on Jim. The doctor advised that there was nothing medicine could do for Jim without a further diagnosis and advised me to do anything I felt may help. As a result, I along with my sister, Diane, who does reflexology and healing touch, began topically applying Frankincense, Valor, Lemon, Thieves and other oils to his feet, neck and temples, as well as diffusing oils into the air in his room. We started diffusing Peace & Calming on the 3rd day.
On the morning of day 4 in ICU, the attempt to regain consciousness was successful and Jim was able to respond to commands. Survival of this condition is apparently uncommon. Of those that do survive, 70% of them have some sort of brain damage.
On day 5 Jim was discharged from the hospital and after 3 weeks he was back at work and he appears to have regained all his mental faculties. The doctors at the ICU call Jim a walking miracle. We have been blessed and have much to be thankful for!!
You can find essential oils in health foods stores, but they are not therapeutic grade and are often diluted with chemicals or synthetic materials.
