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 August 2005 I was diagnosed with invasive breast carcinoma. My surgeon advised me to have a lumpectomy with a sentinel lymph node biopsy. I decided to have the lumpectomy, but my instinct told me not to have the biopsy, which involved injecting a blue dye to find if my lymph was involved.

I did not want my lymph removed, so I did not see the point in this biopsy. Somehow I felt that I could at least heal my lymph glands with the rest of my immune system.

After the surgery, the surgeon said that a couple of the margins from the excision were close and that I had to have more surgery, followed with radiation. I deliberated for a while, as I remembered how my mother was butchered and burned some 35 years ago when she had breast cancer. I know things have improved a bit today, but that left a profound impression on me.

I decided it was time to begin the healing journey with what I trusted more... a natural, less invasive way. The oncologist wanted me to take Tamoxifen, but after a lot of research I opted for the natural alternative of indoles (a class of phytochemicals associated with cancer prevention).

I found a great naturopath and general practitioner (GP) who supported me the whole way with my decision. The naturopath put me on herbs, and we worked together on the emotions that may have been linked to the cancer. My GP gave me intravenous vitamin C and continued to monitor my health with blood tests and ultrasound.

I eliminated my wine and coffee habit and replaced that with fresh juices, including wheatgrass and beets. I also ate more fruit and vegetables. I was going for it. I began to ingest oils with limonene content, such as Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit. I loved massaging Frankincense and Idaho Balsam Fir topically all over my breasts and lymph area.

To this day, 7 years later, it is the essential oils that I still fervently use inside and out. I have now added Juva Cleanse to cleanse my liver and DiGize for parasites, plus so many others that I love to alternate on a needs basis, including emotional blends. My love for these remarkable essential oils grows more and more as I experience the divine gift of these life-giving oils.

1.Associated topics: breast-cancer — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
2.Associated topics: diet — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
3.Associated topics: breast-cancer,breasts — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
4.Associated topics: diet — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice. The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases."Link
