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.

A year ago I had my thyroid tested along with my hormones and where I am generally low with my numbers, TSH was high and T4 was quite low. The doc wanted to give me medication for it but I declined and started taking Thyromin.

When I did the HCG diet last winter, a diet that is supposed to actually to cure you, not just lose weight but change your eating habits, it didn't take and I gained back almost all the weight. I looked into why it works for some and not for others, and I found a theory that the thyroid has to be up to par, and since I didn't want to pay for another blood test, I increased my Thyromin pills to 2 each night. The next time I did the diet, it actually helped me, and I went on to lose more weight after the diet ended.

In France during early July, I was advised to start taking the oil Endoflex for my vitiligo, and started putting a couple of drops under my tongue twice a day. So I've been doing that for two months now. (No improvement of the vitiligo however). I had used this oil to balance out my thyroid about 7 years ago when I first joined Young Living, as it was the only medication I was on, and wanted to be med-free. I have the blood tests to prove that it worked, as my blood work was totally covered by the insurance we had at the time. That was my very first amazing, exciting and best yet, proven in black and white testimonial that I had with essential oils.

My hair has been falling out recently, due to stress, but everyone was saying it has to due with the thyroid. I started the Master Cleanse 10 day cleanse (last day was yesterday!) and instead of my hair loss stopping, which is one benefit listed in the book from the cleanse, my hair loss excellerated. I called the author of the book, and told him about it and that I didn't know if my thyroid was up to par yet. He said that normally the cleanse will make the T4 low, but after the 2nd or 3rd round on the cleanse, it comes back into range. Knowing my thyroid was off on the test from last year, I decided it was worth the hundred or so dollars to have it tested again for the sake of my hair. I just got the results and I am totally normal on all three accounts! Still it did not help my hair loss however.

My TSH went from 7.32 to 1.55, right in mid range. T3, which was in range before, went from 2.2 to 2.6, an improvement. T4 went from .72 to 6.8, right in mid range. All these great numbers without drugs, what a blessing!
