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 young and originally had hurt my back in a basketball game. I went from chiropractor to chiropractor who helped me tons, keeping me upright and as pain free as possible at the time. It was always curious to me how at my age I could be going through that many aches. Through nutritional changes, supplements, cleansing, and recently therapeutic essential oils, my back problems are a thing of the past.

Last week we spent a family vacation in what I refer to as the "Ice cream capital of the world." Couple that with made-from-scratch brownies a weekend later with friends, and in 9 days I had eaten myself into a state of trouble. A pounding head, acne, my old back achiness and water retention, to name the worst symptoms. I knew I hadn't strained my back, lifted anything heavy, or wiped out waterskiing. Ha.

I am convinced now that my years of back troubles were linked to my unhealthy eating habits of inflammatory foods wreaking havoc in my digestive system. When I couldn't bend over to fill the dishwasher, I didn't have time to go through what I used to suffer through.

I got out my NingXia Red drink and over the next few hours finished half a bottle I had in the fridge. Then I put another to chill for the next morning. I looked up essential oils that supported the liver, kidneys and reduced edema and rubbed them on my back and abdomen. Valor and JuvaFlex blends, and tangarine, copiaba, and Fennel essential oils were some I had. I put Grapefruit essential oil in my water.

A day later my pounding head and aching back were gone. I still have some water retention and it didn't reverse the extra pounds from vacation, but I am recommitted to knowing what I need to do to eat properly to keep feeling well.

Thank goodness I had the essential oils and the reference guide to dig myself out of that hole I had put myself in. Young Living Essential Oils saved me from days of distress, and many chiropractor visits I know. Thank you Young Living.
