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.

Last October I had a sudden attack of diverticulitis which landed me in the hospital for 5 days. I was given large amounts of pain medicine and large amounts of antibiotics. The doctor at the time told me I would most likely have to have surgery to remove part of my colon as it was damaged. He wanted to see me in 6 weeks to check on my recovery and discuss surgery.

I called my friend Jeff and told him about my situation. I met with him and we discussed some options to recovery based upon certain Young Living products. I started on a program of the following products:
1. Balance Complete
2. Digest + Cleanse
3. Essentialzyme
4. Peppermint oil

I used the Balance Complete and Digest + Cleanse first to clean my system. Since then I have used Essentialzyme and Peppermint oil daily and I feel great. My follow-up with the doctor was a good visit. He said my colon was much improved and surgery was not needed!

What a relief and I have Jeff and Young Living to thank for a much improved digestive situation. I put the Peppermint oil in my green tea every morning and even put a few drops in club soda for a nice refreshing drink.

It has been 8 months and no problems with my digestion. Thanks Jeff for taking the time to mentor me and thank you Young Living for such a great product line!
