Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives.
I have experienced 3 occurrences of atrial fibrillation, where my heart goes out of its normal sinus rhythm, and begins racing irregularly. On each occasion I have gone to the Emergency Department at our hospital and spent up to two days while I waited for the drugs to bring my heart back into normal rhythm.
My cardiologist subsequently said if it happened again I should take an extra tablet of my normal medication and then rest. If I had not reverted to normal sinus rhythm within 12 hours then I should go to hospital.
My heart went out of rhythm at 4:30am last week. The change in rhythm woke me up. My blood pressure had risen to 160/100 and my pulse was an irregular 120 beats per minute.
I took my medication and began to layer Aroma Life, Ylang Ylang, Stress Away & Valor over the heart area. I also used these oils on the Heart Vita Flex points and kept inhaling deeply the aroma of each oil as I applied it.
By 5:30am my body was feeling much less stressed, but the heart was still irregular but was now around 100 beats per minute. Then at 6:10am my heart dropped back into its correct sinus rhythm.
I am very grateful that the oils in conjunction with the medication were able to bring the episode under control without the need for a trip to hospital. It gives one a boost of confidence as one doesn't know when the episodes might occur.
