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.

My mother has a gastric/duodenal ulcer that flared up in a big way recently. The ulcer is right on the pyloric valve, a terrible place; painful and difficult to heal. Six weeks ago she finally went in for an endoscopy, her GI doctor said surgery is the only way to get rid of this, it is too far gone to heal. This surgery would entail removing the lower 1/3 of her stomach, and an artificially rebuilt pyloric valve. The success rate of the surgery is marginal, according to my mom's research.

She began on a regimen of DiGize in rice milk 3 or 4 times per day, and drank water with Lemon oil in it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. She also took aloe vera juice regularly. She is very diligent about her health, and also ate small amounts of healthy food often, so it didn't tax that valve too much.

Fast forward six weeks to her followup endoscopy, the ulcer is GONE. Her doctor had no reaction when she told him about the essential oil/aloe supplements she had been taking to heal. "Just keep taking Prilosec" was his response.

She absolutely believes her DiGize/Lemon/aloe vera routine saved her from a difficult and marginally successful surgery, and will continue taking these supplements indefinitely.
