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!

1.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: respiratory-system,inflammation — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
4.Associated topics: wound-/-gash — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
5.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
6.Associated topics: inflammation — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
7.Associated topics: wound-/-gash — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
8.Associated topics: inflammation — "To assess their anti-inflammatory activities, effects of essential oils on neutrophil activation were examined in vitro.... All essential oils tested at 0.1% concentration suppressed TNF-945;-induced neutrophil adherence, and, in particular, lemongrass, geranium, and spearmint oils clearly lowered the reaction even at 0.0125%. Similar inhibitory activities for the neutrophil adherence were obtained by their major constituent terpenoids: citral, geraniol, citronellol and carvone. Thus, some essential oils used as anti-inflammatory remedies suppress neutrophil activation by TNF-945; at a low concentration (0.0125-0.025%) in vitro."Link
