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 diagnosed with a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour with liver metastasis (secondary tumours) in July 2002. I have had 5 major abdominal surgeries & have become an insulin dependent diabetic since then. I still have some tumours in my liver & now one in my stomach.

The symptoms of these tumours can include diarrhea & severe cramping, hot flushing, fatique, high blood pressure, heart palpitations, emotional fragility, & shortness of breath. I am fortunate in that I only get diarrhea, cramping, fatigue & sometimes an erratic heart beat. I have used whole food nutritional supplements throughout my medical treatments which I believe have kept me well enough to withstand those treatments.

To cope with the symptoms I regularly rub Peppermint on my abdomen, or a painkilling blend containing Peppermint, to remove the pain from the abdominal cramping. I works immediately! I never leave home without it. I also use DiGize on my abdomen to help with the diarrhea.

I also get edema in my legs due to the drug I am taking. This can get so bad I have to wear pressure stockings during the day to keep the swelling down. To relieve this I rub Grapefruit, Valor & Tangerine into my feet, ankles & legs, then put my feet up above my head for half an hour or so. If it is particularly bad in the evening, I take these 3 oils internally.
