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.

I was diagnosed with this awful disease after seeing many doctors and specialists for nearly 6 months.

My neurologist told me that surgery was risky and not sure if I would survive the "knife". He also suggested that my future was bleak at best. He further suggested that I might have one good year left to live.

During this time a dear friend of mine suggested I see a chiropractor. She can attest that I struggle with any other sort of treatment except that from the medical community. She was successful in convincing me and accompanied me to see him.

After the initial evaluation the chiropractor confirmed the neurologist's suggestions of having a limited life. He promised me that he could help. He placed me on a program that I believe fixed a lot of trouble.

But he admitted that he could not get me to the point he wanted me at so he sent me to see a Neuro-muscular therapist. I drove about 200 miles for each visit and did that for about 8 months. I believe she helped me too.

Even though I was getting help. None of them could resolve the pain that this condition produces and it is devastating. It is a rare disease and the normal medical community has little research to assist those who suffer from it. I continued to see my neurologist and he suggested I continue to look for other solutions.

Back to my wonderful friend... it was her tenacity and research that lead her to the Young Living essential oils. She discovered them due to other interests. However, she was quick to recognize that the oils could aid me in my quest for pain relief.

Remember, I struggle with alternative health remedies because that is not the way I was brought up. She presented me this solution of trying the oils. She became a distributor.

She set up a meeting at her home with her up line and me. During the beginning of their presentation I was stricken with this unpredicted pain. My friend knows that I like to drink water to help alleviate the pain. The wonderful lady who was demonstrating the oils placed two drops of Tangerine Oil in my glass of water. INSTANT RELIEF!

I was shocked. I could feel something happening. It was not unpleasant. I think what I was experiencing was feelings of being normal. We learned that the Tangerine Oil was effective in stopping spasmodic symptoms. For me, it was a miracle. The pain that I use to experience was in the center of my head and upper throat.

More specifically it is located in the tonsil area and behind the throat. It is a terrible sharp stabbing pain. There is a high suicide rate for those afflicted with this disease because of the intensity of it. I quickly became a huge fan of the oils and wanted to know more about them.

I am still learning and now also a distributor and have witnessed grown men cry because they too have seen "miracle" like relief from the symptoms of other diseases they have.

With the use of these oils I can help others and am thankful for them. Another side note is that I ran out of the Tangerine oil. The pain is starting to come back. I can't wait until my order arrives.

Thank you Young Living for providing the oils I need to live again. I believe it has saved my life.

As much as I appreciate and love the products and oils you offer I also have to extend another thank you to my friend:

"I don't have to say a lot here. You know how I feel. We both know that you will down play any comments I say about what you have down for me. Thank you can come in many forms. Some people just simply say thank you. Others try to show their thanks by sending flowers or candies or even buying dinner and sending gifts.

All of these ideas and options can not express what I feel. Words are difficult to find to express the thanks I have for your tenacity and discovery of this solution. Of course, the oils have given me relief and comfort. Imagine if everyone had the love you have in helping others. What a wonderful world it would be."

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: vagus-nerve — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: depression-/-sadness-/-hopelessness-/-sorrow — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: depression-/-sadness-/-hopelessness-/-sorrow — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
5.Associated topics: throat — "Streptococcus pyogenes [strep] plays an important role in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis.... [T]hyme, cinnamon, lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, oregano, clove, palmarosa, or cajeput [melaleuca] EOs [essential oils] are known to be active against Streptococcus pyogenes, while oregano, basil, mint [peppermint], rosemary, and lavender EOs are known to inhibit another Gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus [staph].... We showed that cinnamon presented the higher activity against S. pyogenes compared to the other EOs tested.... 14 [essential oils] showed antibacterial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes.... Among them Cinnamomum verum [cinnamon bark], Cymbopogon citratus [Xiang Mao], Thymus vulgaris CT thymol [thyme], Origanum compactum [oregano], and Satureja montana [Mountain Savory] essential oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity. The in vitro results reported here suggest that, for patients suffering from bacterial throat infections, if aromatherapy is used, these essential oils, considered as potential antimicrobial agents, should be preferred."Link
