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.

The DiGize oil blend is one of the main oils that we use as a family all the time. There is nothing better for calming the stomach and digestive system. It may also help with parasite removal.

Everyone seems to come down at least once a year with the 24 hour stomach flu. I have found that if I catch it when I first notice stomach pain coming on, then I can stop it from getting worse.

I will put 7 drops of DiGize under my tongue, hold it and then swallow it after about 10 seconds. Then 10 minutes later I will do 7 more drops of DiGize and swallow it. Then 10 minutes later 7 more drops and swallow it. By that time, I begin to notice the discomfort going away. I have not had the 24 hour stomach flu for about 10 years now with this method.

I have also had a few bouts with acid reflux or GERD. I tried Alkalime and it helped a little with the severe pain and discomfort, but when I started using DiGize when first noticing the reflux or GERD, it begins to lessen and then it seems to slowly disappear. It allows me to lay down and get some sleep. The only thing that has worked on acid reflux or GERD is DiGize, and it is a life saver!

If you do not like the taste of DiGize, then either put it in a veggie capsule or else you can put several drops on the indentation under your ear lobes. It is an entry point for the eustachian tube that goes to the throat. That is where we put the DiGize for smaller children or pregnant women with morning sickness, it really works well.

Also, I have had bouts of IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome for the last 10 years. When I find my digestive system starts acting up, and sometimes leads to diarrhea, then I just use DiGize. I put about 7 drops under my tongue and then swallow it. In about 10 minutes my whole digestive system just settles down.

I do not know what I would do with my DiGize and other essential oils.
