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.

Background: For 14 years: Whenever I breathed in any chemicals from the environment or ate food tainted with preservatives or additives, I would develop severe muscle weakness. The reaction was worse when it was a cumulative one ie when smelling different things through the day (hairspray, soaps, colognes, perfumes, etc.) Then I would lose the use of my muscles and even my pulse rate would fall because the heart is a muscle and my voice as well.

I was bedridden and lived in a "bubble" for a year to avoid any chemical trigger reactions in an asthmatic attack and loss of muscle energy.

My first Young Living essential oil experience: A severe windstorm whipped in jet exhaust as I stepped into the plane. I could taste it on my tongue and right away I got an attack and could no longer hold my handbaggage as my muscles locked and I had difficulty breathing. I remembered I had a few oils in my bag (which was for my brother).

I remembered that Gary had said Frankincense was his most favorite. I put two drops and within 30 seconds, my attack was gone without a trace! With NingXia Red juice, Core Supplements and later added other supplements, I got stronger as my liver detoxed and had better nutrition. I am doing 98% better and can walk without feeling I'm dragging myself and can comb my hair without my arms flopping.

It is very rare that I get any severe attacks unless the smells are overpowering and cumulative. I do the same--take one drop Frankincense orally in water and get immediate relief. It is so good to be able to use my muscles and live normally and not react to chemicals like I used to. To God be the glory and to Gary Young for being God's wonderful instrument.
