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 first started with Young Living I was suffering from a diagnosis called Gulf War Syndrome.

I was told when I was in the United States Army in my mid-thirties, that I had arthritis of a 50 year old. I had the cartilage in my knee removed in 1988 and was experiencing a lot of knee pain and swelling. Bone on bone pain.

When I started using Young Living products in 1999, I decided to address the knee issue as well. I would use a few drops of the PanAway oil blend daily, sometimes Peppermint and Wintergreen. Then I started taking the supplements. I started with Sulfurzyme and it seemed to work well on my skin where I would frequently have an inflammatory response from the chemicals I was exposed to in the military. I noticed that my knee was feeling better.

In 2007 I fragmented a disc at L5/S1 and was in terrible pain. I started using AgilEase and NingXia Red juice on a daily basis. My back resolved itself within 18 months and I have never had any knee pain since.

I continue to take NingXia Red juice and Sulfurzyme daily. I put 2 heaping teaspoons of Sufurzyme in 2-4 ounces of NingXia Red EVERYDAY! I will be 60 next Tuesday and I feel great, no aches and pains, my skin is looking great and I owe it all to Young Living.

A side note: My mother had fallen and torn the cartilage in her knee a couple of years ago and she had to use a 3-footed cane to get around. She was in terrible pain every time she would have to get up and walk around. Her doctor told her she had bone on bone. I gave her my NingXia Red/Sulfurzyme combo along with taking 3 AgilEase capsules daily. Her knee pain is gone and she takes other supplements to keep her in good health, like Multigreens, Omegagize, Life 5 and ComforTone. You wouldn't know she will be 83 in June.
