If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants.

Buyer beware.


I'm shy of 50. Brittle hair and depression were issues most of my life. Weight loss was not typically a struggle as I could slim down pretty quickly, even after two births (in my mid and late 20s) with reasonable diet and exercise.

Although by birth number three (at age 41), some hormonal changes had occurred and depression was seldom an issue. But after birth number three, a body that was rather unresponsive to weight loss efforts was.

I wondered if I had a thyroid problem. Tests always came out "fine," in the "good" range. Understanding that the thyroid does not have a one-size-fits-all reading range, I turned to Young Living.

My understanding was that taking Thyromin as directed and the essential oil blend Endoflex would have no effect on me if my thyroid was functioning optimally, so I began taking Thyromin nightly and applying a few drops of Endoflex daily on my throat figuring I had nothing to lose.

Well, my body began to respond to dietary changes and exercise once again. In about a month I was down two sizes.

For many years previous to Endoflex and Thyromin, I was used to getting gobs of hair in my brush and comb after a wash or perm. After less than two months with these two Young Living products, I permed my hair.

And I could not believe it, but for the first time in my life no hair was left in my brush or wet comb. My fingernails which recently began ridging, chipping and curving backward, became a bit stronger too. My nails grew out more healthy.

Talk about hope restored!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: thyroid — "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
2.Associated topics: hair-loss-(alopecia) — "Eyelid scrubs or massage with tea tree oil could be an effective treatment regimen in cases of blepharoconjunctivitis [and Demodex mite infestation]."Link
3.Associated topics: hypothyroidism — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. 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
4.Associated topics: weight-loss — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
5.Associated topics: nails — "Tea tree oil contributes to the successful treatment of toenail fungus [onychomycosis]."Link
6.Associated topics: nails — "Topical therapy, including [tea tree oil].., provide[s] improvement in nail appearance and symptomatology.... The use of a topical preparation [such as tea tree oil] in conjunction with debridement is an appropriate initial treatment strategy."Link
7.Associated topics: hair-loss-(alopecia) — "The essential oils of Chamaecyparis obtusa [a conifer in the cypress family] promote hair growth through the induction of vascular endothelial growth factor gene.... [C]onsumers suffering from baldness and/or other forms of hair loss have reported a hair growth promoting effect of shampoos containing these oils."Link
8.Associated topics: weight-loss — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice. The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases."Link
