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.

When I was 28 years old I was working in construction. We had a competition between the workers to see who was the strongest. I was very well-built at the time so I took on a bricklayer who put 100 bricks in a wheelbarrow and lifted it. I decided to double the load and lift it. Immediately everyone heard 5 large cracks in my back.

Suddenly I felt the most awful pain and fell to the ground in agony. The ambulance came to get me and I was left in the outpatient area for 5 hours without pain relief. At the time, I couldn't move without screaming in pain.

The verdict was that I had broken five discs, the doctors wanted to operate but I refused. The reason I refused was because I had a friend who had one deformed disc, had back surgery and six months later was in even worse pain!

I returned home where I laid for 2 weeks, on pain killers. Then against all odds, I went back to work! All of my friends advised me to take advantage of the insurance but I didn't want to do that. I was still in a lot of pain and couldn't even lift a tool box without yelling out. My co-workers helped me where possible. For the next 28 years I just learned to live with the pain.

Then one day when attending a lecture, the speaker looked at me and said, "You look like you have troubles". I said yes. The speaker said, "There are five things that cause us to be sick: meat, dairy, white sugar, refined salt and white flour'.

As I was leaving the lecture the speaker gave me an audio tape saying, "Will you listen to this in the car while you drive?" Once in the car, me and my wife started listening to the tape.

Ten minutes later I announced to my wife that from now on I was going to be a vegetarian. We cut out all meat, even though we had purchased $89 worth of expensive meats and sausages the day before. That all got thrown out, even our dog didn't eat it. We still drank a little cows milk in our tea and a month later that was eliminated too.

Several years later after being fully vegan I was able to fully straighten up, something I had not been able to do. The pain was greatly diminished and in fact I only felt some pain in my back when outside gardening or doing construction, but nothing like what it used to be. The amazing thing about this story is that diet alone allowed my body to regenerate itself.

Fifteen years later, my daughter introduced me to Young Living Oils, through a friend, and me and my wife started to anoint our bodies with oils every day. In only 6 months time all of my pain was gone, including the pain from my knees. I had been advised to have a knee replacement 15 years ago and refused.

The conclusion to my story is that a vegan diet and therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living can give you the very best of health even into old age. I am now 72 years and I look like I am in my late 50s. The same is true of my wife, whose hair is now going from grey to dark!

I hope this amazing story will inspire others to follow in my footsteps to better living.
