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.


In 1994 after not being ill a day in my life except for regular bouts with a cold and the flu I almost died due an internal bleed from my duodenum. Unbeknownst to me I had a bacteria by the name of helicobacter pylori which caused an ulcerative rupture in my duodenum. I required a blood transfusion of 3 pints to replace the lost blood.

I was then given 2 antibiotics at the same time to rid me of the bacteria. Four weeks after completing this protocol it was evident that it did not work as I almost had another bleed.

It was then suggested by my specialist that I take a regimen of 8 different drugs at the same time for 21 days with no guarantees for success. I refused because I was told to expect substantial side effects and there was another drug I could take instead called ranitidine (zantac), an acid blocker that would prevent the bleeds although it would not get rid of the bacteria. I chose this route reluctantly. Later I found a natural product containing MSM, although not quite the quality formulation of Young Living Sulfurzyme which worked similarly to reduce acid.

Then in October/1999 I read about a natural antibiotic protocol recommended by Gary Young. It involved using the essential oils of Lemon, Mountain Savory, and Oregano together and internally. I decided to try it and started very slowly using only a fraction of what Gary recommended and within 4 days I knew the bacteria was history. To this day (July 23/2005) I have not had any stomach challenges which had previously caused me great discomfort day and night on a daily basis for almost 5 years.

I might add that although I haven't needed to use the formula below again I would not think of going without a variety of essential oils in my daily nutritional program. To me they are the ultimate supplements for optimum physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing and performance.

=============================

THE FORMULA

* 10 drops Lemon
* 8 drops Mountain Savory;
* 3 drops Oregano.

Put in capsule and take 1-3 times a day. However, instead of putting the drops in capsules I put them in a tablespoon of Young Living V-6 mixing oil and then mixed the entire mixture with about 2 ounces of grape juice in a small bottle. I would then shake the bottle before using and I took only 1 tablespoon of this mixture 3 times a day. Goes down real easy..... I continued with this regimen for 14 days just to be certain.

Note:

I'm not sure if this would interact with any prescription antibiotics taken either orally or intravenously.

Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
4.Associated topics: bacteria — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
5.Associated topics: bacteria — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
