I am extremely grateful for the knowledge Gary Young ND has shared with me since 1996. The oils quite literally saved my life from a severe scooter accident in Mexico on the island of Cozumel while on a Young Living cruise. I veered of the road, flew over the handlebars and plowed my face into a coral rock at 25 miles an hour. I broke my cheekbones, upper-palate in half, right orbital bone (right eye) and my nose was hanging off on the right side. In a word my face was hamburger. Before and after photos can be seen on my website listed below.
Synchronistically an American doctor and the island ambulance came on the scene almost immediately even though my traveling companion, Julie and I were in the middle of no-where. Once in the ambulance Julie and I began chanting a Tibetan chant silently to ourselves to calm the situation and it worked quite well.
After the Cozumel Hospital finished all the X-rays they determined that I would be staying with them for a while. The ear, nose, eye and throat specialist immediately sewed my nose back on. In the meantime Julie was taking care of all the logistics; jamming our suitcases in record time to get our belongings off the cruise ship before it left port and notifying family members, etc.
We settled in my new hospital room equipped with a bed for Julie too. She began applying our abundant supply of Young Living Oils several times a day directly on my face and neck and shrunk the swelling by 80% in two days. This prepared me for the really big six and a half hour surgery of inserting seven steel plates and 34 screws to hold my face together. As a result I have never suffered any pain whatsoever, not even a headache.
I was discharged from the hospital after eight days and my life slowed down for about six months. Even within those six months I fell in love, vacationed in Hawaii and got married in Damanhur, Italy. I have very little scaring and no typical head injury symptoms at all. I also began writing a book that is now published about the sequence of events that are truly extraordinary and quite mind-boggling. "It's Not Weird Anymore: An Extraordinary True Tale" won the "2011 Readers Favorite Award."
Here are the four main essential oils I used to repair the damage. (1) Helichrysum can help support the skin, liver, and nervous system. (2) Frankincense can help boost the immune system, relax muscles and decrease inflammation and depression. (3) Juniper can help nerve repair, release toxins, increase circulation, work as an antiseptic, and release fluid retention. (4) Lavender can help with scaring, pain, and nervous tension. The Raindrop Technique technique was applied daily to the spine points on my feet.
