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, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
For the last 6 years I've been struggling with Diverticulosis. I have been hospitalized for a severe flare up. I had extremely bloody bowel movements and terrible pains in my stomach. I barely avoided major surgery. Instead, I was placed on many medications.
To avoid Diverticulosis flare ups I was taking Librax and Nexium daily. The Nexium was giving me Migraine headaches daily, so I took Ultracept for my headaches. And I suffered from extreme anxiety with a constant fear of being sick again. I took Xanox for this anxiety. I also took anti-inflammatories for joint issues.
I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils in August 2011 by my 2 nieces one day at the beach. I attended their intro to oils class and decided to see if I could be successful ridding myself of medications, like my niece had done. I spoke to my primary doctor & my GI doctor and was cleared to start weaning off my medications. Instead of my stomach meds, I use Peppermint essential oil and DiGize. I put 1 drop of Peppermint oil in a cup of water and drink it. I also rub Peppermint oil or DiGize on my stomach as needed. I take Life 5 Probiotic to strengthen my stomach. Instead of taking my Migraine medicine, I use the Deep Relief roll-on on the top of my head & the back of my neck. My headache stops quickly.
I was able to stop taking my anxiety medication as well. Instead, when I feel anxious, I use Peace & Calming, Stress Away or Tranquil until it subsides. I apply them to my temples, behind my ears, on the top of my head, and wrists. I use Rutavala to fall asleep at night. I always carry in my pocketbook Stress Away, Deep Relief, and Tranquil to use as needed.
I stopped all 5 of my medications in 2 months of starting Young Living Essential Oils. I feel better than I did when taking the medicine. I have not had any flare ups since using the oils. At my last GI appointment in May 2012, I was told everything is fine and keep on using your oils.
