Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was originally diagnosed with SLE in 2009 and by the time I found essential oils I was on several different medications every day to treat the different symptoms. I got my essential oils reference book, did my research and prayed over the protocol. I was tired of fatigue and brain fog and aching all over, especially the hips. Last summer when I saw my doc he said if I didn't make serious changes I was going to end up parenting my kids from a wheelchair. Let's say that statement scared the life INTO me! I knew I had to make serious changes.

I started a regimen where I apply 2 drops of ImmuPower every night to each foot, so that it covers the whole foot. I also use 2 drops of Thieves every morning to each foot, so it covers the whole foot. I used 2 drops of EndoFlex on my adrenal glands every day and one drop to my throat. For 2 months I used 2 Thyromin at night before bedtime and when my blood levels checked out ok, I switched to Myrtle oil on the thyroid and vitaflex point for Thyroid twice a day. I added a drop of Frankincense to my ART moisturizer every morning so no rash on the face and it has helped fade out my sun spots. (Bonus!) That's it. That was my 6 month lupus protocol.

After prayer in April 2013, against the advice of my doctor, I threw out all prescriptions and started oiling and have never felt better. My doctor felt confident enough to say I no longer required the care of a specialist and I didn't need to see him every 3 months. I could call him if I needed him. That was in October 2013 and I am still symptom free. (I still do this even after being "cleared" medically to keep my immune system strong and operating optimally.)

For the brain fog I found applying 2 drops of Peppermint to my wrists is helpful and diffusing it first thing in the morning when I get to work helps set the tone of the day. If I was having a rough day pain wise I would reach for Deep Relief. It is by far one of my favorite oils with too many benefits to list.

In addition to getting off meds I totally changed my diet and I believe that is a key factor too and I started following the Paleo Auto Immune protocol to reduce inflammation in my body. Getting off sugar and refined, processed foods is key for anyone with any type of inflammatory disease!
