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.

My son has a speech/language, auditory processing disorder. But since no one has heard of this kind of thing, sometimes I just tell people that he has a high-functioning autism. To sum it up, he has a harder time hearing things and processing it. His actual hearing is perfectly fine however.

This affects him in more ways than what you'd think. He doesn't understand when you're joking (though he is getting better at that), he has a hard time with instructions, and getting him to answer the questions at the end of the story he just read has nearly brought me to tears at times. His reading is excellent! He just has no idea WHAT he just read.

We've tried many different things to help him. We've eliminated foods. We've done vitamin protocols. High levels of fish oil. So on and so forth. Most things helped in one way or another, but I was still left frustrated with his comprehension.

Several months ago, I started using Young Living's therapeutic grade essential oils on him. I had read what several different people used for their children, so I bought many different oils to try. I started by opening all of the bottles and having him smell them. I had read that we will be attracted to the ones that our bodies need. So I had him pick out 5 oils, though I told him the Valor was non-negotiable. The oils he picked were:

* Valor (on his spine)

* Peace & Calming


* Sacred Frankincense

* Clarity

After a while, I had him add JuvaFlex to his big toes to aid in getting rid of any toxic chemicals that his liver may have absorbed, and I had him add Brain Power to the base of his skull (brain stem). I allow him to decide where to apply these oils everyday, though I know that he has formed a routine and does the same thing everyday.

We did run out of Sacred Frankincense, so for now, he is applying Frankincense instead.

A couple of months ago, I ran out of Peace & Calming, so I gave him Cedarwood to try. For the first time, when he read his story, HE ANSWERED ALL OF THE QUESTIONS AT THE END! I was shocked, nearly in tears, and, I admit, skeptical. Could one change in oils really cause such a huge progression? I continued to have him apply Cedarwood and he continued to answer the questions at the end of his stories. AND he now enjoys reading and will tell me about the books he got for his birthday!

This is our protocol. Every person and child is different, so every protocol will look slightly different. Oils that I found common to use for Autism/ADD/ADHD are Valor, Sacred Frankincense, Frankincense, SARA, Peace & Calming, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Brain Power, Common Sense, Grounding, and JuvaFlex.

In addition to that, products like OmegaGize are EXCELLENT because they give our kids high doses of Omegas and also aid in digestion. Enzymes are excellent too because our digestive system is our second brain. If something is going wrong in our gut, our brains cannot function at full capacity.
