In July my husband got pneumonia. Antibiotics and oils on his feet were not enough. I added digestive enzymes and nebulizations with asthma drugs but saw little improvement but the mucus came up with the digestive enzymes. Still very ill. Now his feet started getting bile green on the soles. His circulation was not good and the oils were not getting to his lungs. We started using oils in capsules and saw improvement by morning.
Next problem, gout, as his kidneys were under stress from the antibiotics. I had a small bottle of Ledum I was going to use on his liver for old diesel oil absorption on his skin. (He has lots of lesions on his back from chemical contacts as a farmer.) I put 20 drops in a capsule the first day as it was the only gout remedy I had. Cut back to 15 drops of Ledum the next day and for whatever reason rubbed his throbbing, purple big toe with Lemongrass. Presto, relief in 20 minutes, and it continued if I did it 2-3 times a day. Good in 2 weeks. Doctor said he would be sick for at least 5 weeks!
I should add that he also has a severe sleep apnea and uses a machine. From touch and go to feeling good. Now if I could only make him drink all the time! Conclusions? I don't know what worked but the Lemongrass was immediate and obvious in pain relief from the gout. How much the Ledum did is not as obvious, the Lemongrass may not have worked so well alone. My husband will not volunteer to try getting gout again and see which worked!
I have started my shoulder on the road to recovery with Valor then Lemongrass twice a day. It's my best friend. Just asked the colt who is here today with the help of Lemongrass!
