I have had Crohn's disease for the last 7 years. With Young Living essential oils and other natural practices I have been able to it in a pretty stable remission for the last 3 years, but I still have regular lab work done to make sure everything is in check.
One of the labs my doctor and I keep a close eye on is my C- Reactive Protein (CRP). This is an inflammation marker. It is a very sensitive marker, and if you have any sort of inflammation anywhere in your body it will be high. Normal is less than zero. Whenever my Crohn's flairs up, it will shoot up anywhere from 10 to 35.
Despite being in a good remission, my CRP started climbing about two years ago. It was not terrible high, but my doctor was pretty puzzled, so we tried multiple things to get it down. We tried restricting all grains, sugar, and starches, taking fish oil, turmeric, and other anti-inflammatory supplements. Nothing worked, and it continued to climb.
In January of 2013, I had a routine colonoscopy to make sure I was staying in remission. Everything looked great. Then we had my labs drawn. Everything look great except my CRP. It was 22. My doctor was extremely concerned. Since we had tried everything to get it down without success, he decided it was time to try steroids. I had been on them many times before and always hated it, but I gave in, to satisfy my doctor. So I started Prednisone, and stayed on it for three months.
I did not end up getting my labs drawn again until next August. But instead of my CRP going down, it went up to 44! At that point I got really scared. Miraculously my doctor was in the middle of switching offices, and so never saw the labs! I saw this as God giving me one last chance to get my CRP down.
Soon after, I was reading about Copaiba oil, and how Gary Young think it may be the most anti-inflammatory substance on the planet. So I started taking one full capsule a day, which is about 15-16 drops. Eight weeks after stating the Cobaiba I had my labs drawn again. To my utter amazement, my CRP went down from 44.00 to 0.56! I could not believe it! I started jumping around shouting for joy.
As amazed as I was then, it really does not surprise me now that God's medicine would work far better than man's. I am so thankful for my Young Living oils!
