Hello! I wanted to share a personal testimonial I have recently had...

I just recently had to have an emergency gallbladder surgery. They had to do a vertical cut which I have had before and know just how long it takes to heal from this. A vertical cut goes through all your abdominal muscles and just takes quite a while to heal up. In the past I would definitely need 24 hour care to lift me up from a sitting position and help my me move my legs up and down. And for sure I would need help lifting anything heavier than 10 or 15 lbs.

This time I tried something different with the Copaiba oil I had not done before. I would always put it on for inflammation topically but had not really stuck to an ongoing internal use protocol. We all have been taught from Gary Young and Marc Schreuder etc.. that it's the #1 best of all the oils. So this time, I would put around 8-10 drops in a little shot glass of water and drink it twice a day. It's such a gentle oil and it hardly has any taste. It has a very gentle woodsy smell. If any accidentally gets into your eyes, there is no burn at all.

Anyhow my surgery date was July 1st. After only 2-3 weeks from the date of my surgery I felt like I had NO surgery at all!! I found that I could lift things, I was able to drive myself and I could easily get up and down. I only had help for 2 days when I got home from the hospital on July 7th and I hardly needed help even then. Normally a vertical cut surgery would take easily 2-3 months where I could manage on my own without bad pain.

We have been taught that Copaiba is like Helichrysum on steroids meaning it a serious anti-inflammatory with no side effects. Well all I can say is I am sold! I am living proof in how effective, safe and powerful it really is.

Now I take it every day because I know without doubt that I have lots of inflammation. Everyone has inflammation really. Gary Young has taught us it is the base of all disease no matter what. Copaiba comes from a tree in Brazil. It is the only oil that is not steam distilled from the plant material either. They cut a hole into the bark of the tree and the oil comes pouring out like out of a tap!

So for anyone having any kind of surgery, or who has any injury or even respiratory distress, like asthma, something I prefer to do is to use Copaiba on a daily basis. I just squeeze some into the eye dropper and put it into my little shot glass and add a little water.

We are so so blessed to have use of these most magnificent Young Living oils! Again I laugh when people say the oils are too expensive! Expensive is not being able to work for 3 months, expensive is having to pay huge deductibles and copays for anti inflammatory drugs that give us awful side effects. Think again if $43.00 is too much to totally heal yourself after a big surgery!

Blessings of great radiant health and longevity for us all!

2.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
3.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "Topical 5% tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne vulgaris.... Tea tree oil has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity in vitro. These properties have formed the basis of its use in the treatment of a range of superficial dermatoses such as cuts, insect bites, boils, and dermatophytosis [ringworm]."Link
4.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision,surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
5.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
