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 Eli, getting ready to turn 3, was born with a swallowing problem and has to have all liquids thickened to keep them from going into his lungs. This was one of my main focuses with essential oils, to see if I could possibly find something to help him. He had nothing physically wrong to cause this problem and doctors just kept saying he would grow out of it.

Every swallow test we went to, no improvement, he actually was getting worse at one point and if he had to go any thicker would have to be tube fed. He has had some help through a therapy he did but it was very expensive, time consuming and hard on him.

You can see his website for further info on our story if you are interested. I am not posting this looking for donations, please don't think that. The story is just too long to retype here, plus you can enjoy a cute picture of him:

Shortly after signing up with Young Living I took Eli for a Zyto scan just to see if it could possibly give us any answers. It recommended Cistus. I also felt lead to use Frankincense. Both oils are mentioned in the Bible and Cistus said it could help with regeneration of cells.

I put both of these oils on faithfully every night to his feet, front of his neck, and back of his neck. It has now been 3 months with his only regimen being the oils. Today was our swallow test and he had a completely normal swallow test!! I know in my heart the oils had a huge part in helping us reach this milestone finally!
