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 developed extreme fatigue about five years ago. It was such a struggle for him to get through a day of college and maintain his work schedule. He was always looking for a little time to nap so he could go on. He was also dealing with some back pain and low grade headaches that were there all the time. My heart ached for him but I was also newly divorced and in a very demanding college program myself so there was little time to focus on him.

As a massage therapist, I would trade massage with an acupuncturist friend in exchange for acupuncture treatments from him which helped temporarily.

A Lyme Disease test was ran but it came back negative as well as a sleep-study and blood panels. All negative or normal.

Three weeks ago we attended a small conference in northern Minnesota featuring a gal from Wisconsin who had severe Lyme Disease for years before diagnosis. At the point of diagnosis she was almost dead, too weak for antibiotic treatments. She has suffered through many surgeries to her spine and many doctors who eventually thought a psychologist was more in order. Young Living Oils were introduced to her and she began using them. She is now completely well.

My son is now using her recipe: 2 drops Frankincense, 6 drops Oregano and 12 drops of Thieves in a gel capsule. Take every 4 hours for 3 days, every 8 hours for 4 days, every 12 hours for 5 days and once a day for 6 days. It is dehydrating so drink lots of water. If this is too strong a formula for your stomach it can be divided into more capsules and spread out more through the day. You should be urinating once an hour to help move toxins out.

After this two week regimen it is important to cleanse your body of the dead spirochete bodies that can build up in the body. The gal that spoke used the Master Cleanse at this point with great success. She also recommends building the body with the Young Living supplements: Life 5, Essentialzyme 4 and Inner Defense. Raindrop Technique once a week was also recommended if possible. The oils in this therapy can also be rubbed on the feet if no one is available to apply them to your back.

My son was close to choosing an antibiotic treatment before hearing this gal's story and I just hated to see him do that. He has decided not to do that now and is using this regimen instead and is beginning to feel a change in the quality of his headaches and fatigue.

Antibiotics and pharmaceuticals did not work for the speaker. I believe they are most effective at the time of the bite or when the bulls eye is present but not after years of carrying the disease. The Spirochetes multiply so fast and are incredibly adaptive and able to hide deep within cells, even within the larvae. It's just freaky!!
I am so grateful every time I attend an event or read a story that points me and my loved ones down the right road now that I am on this journey with essential oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: headache — "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
2.Associated topics: headache — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
3.Associated topics: headache — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
4.Associated topics: headache — "We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
5.Associated topics: headache — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
6.Associated topics: headache — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
7.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
8.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
