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.

Due to an automobile accident, I fractured my 4th lower lumbar, had nerve damage in my neck, and three bulging discs in the cervical and thoracic area of my back. My cervical discs were dehydrated.

For the first three and a half years after the accident I was in incredible amounts of pain. Migraines plagued me daily along with fibromyalgia and arthritis pain throughout my spine. Numbness in arms and hands were caused from nerve damage from my neck injury. Bone spurs forming on my vertebrae, would eventually fuse my spine together.

My appointment (June of 2000) with the doctor was very disturbing. The doctor said I would be in a wheelchair by the time I turned forty. The daily migraines and back pain made life difficult, let alone adding extra therapy and exercise to my then current regimen. I left his office frightened and frustrated ... but determined to find a solution! My neurosurgeon discussed surgery when the nerve block injections in my back didn't work.

Exhausting many avenues of conventional medicine, I was finally open to other avenues which could regain my health. Then Young Living came into my life! Gary Young's personal story gave me MUCH hope. If Gary Young could walk after spending 13 years in a wheelchair, I could stay out of one! And there began my wonderful and amazing journey with Young Living.

I began with Sulfurzyme and a few essential oils (Peppermint, the RC oil blend, and Wintergreen). Within a month or so my pain was drastically reduced and migraines were a thing of the past. Within six to eight months the pain was GONE! My son Mikol learned the Raindrop Technique and performed this when needed.

I gained my life back ... PAIN FREE! I exercise daily and can even bend backwards! I reached the great age of FORTY (40) in June of 2004 and in no way will I ever need a wheelchair because of the effects of that accident! I am as healthy now as I was at 20 years old!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: fibromyalgia-syndrome-(FMS) — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
4.Associated topics: arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
