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.

When I started with Young Living, I knew that they had therapeutic grade essential oils, but I didn't fully understand the dynamics of what the oils are capable of. I originally joined because I was impressed with their Wolfberry juice blend, which is also known as NingXia Red juice.

I liked the fact that they had some very substantial scientific data to back their claims about this berry that I had never heard of. Now, back to the reason I am writing this testimonial.

My son and I were experiencing some nausea one evening due to having a few stomach issues. I called my mentor/up line, and asked her what she would recommend for my stomach problems.

She knew that I had received the "Essential 7" kit through a promotional that the company was having when I signed on as a distributor. She suggested using two of the seven oils. Peppermint on my stomach, and Lemon on the bottom of my feet. That sounded interesting, and I was game for anything at this point. Well, much to our surprise, we both had relief in about 10 minutes. I was impressed, but I still didn't "get it".

About a month later I was having severe stomach acid reflux. I took Zantac in the morning, thinking this would take care of the problem. I didn't think about using the oils because I was used to using over the counter meds for this type of problem.

I continued to have acid reflux all day, and it was starting to affect my throat, even after the Zantac. If you have read any health reports lately about acid reflux, then you know that this isn't a good thing since the constant exposure to acid erodes the esophagus, and can lead to much more severe problems.

When I was getting ready for bed that evening, I thought to try my up line's recommendation again with the Peppermint, and the Lemon oil on my feet, and my stomach. I laid down to read before I went to sleep, and was anxious to see if this remedy would work with this problem since I was feeling very uncomfortable.

About 20 minutes later, I felt a significant reduction in the burning sensation, enough so that I was able to go to sleep, and sleep peacefully for the rest of the night. I remember as I drifted off to sleep, "I am definitely going to have to send my testimonial in. This is just too good to be true." You can be sure that I am going to attend some of the seminars so that I can learn more about these wonderful oils, and how to use them on myself, my family and my pets!

The older I get, the more I realize that it pays to educate yourself, and to be willing to use the best there is in order to achieve and maintain my good health. There are other oils available out there, but there aren't any as excellent as Young Living products.

These oils are truly remarkable, and I can't say enough about the support I get from the company, their support staff, and my mentor. I always get my shipments on time too!

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

Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
