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.

My immune system had been compromised after taking a massive dose of steroids for another health issue. As a result, when the weather got colder, I was one of its victims. I used my oils (Oregano, Thyme, Cypress and Basil) in capsules for 3 days. That combination would usually make the bugs disappear.

However, with all the hacking, I'd spread the germs around our home, and my husband got sick. We traded it back and forth a few times. He was finally able to stay well, but I carried this hack for several months after. It seemed to be worse at night, especially when I'd lie down to sleep.

I hate to admit it, but I eventually went to the doctor -- three different times! Nothing she ever did could help cure the hacking either! It just wouldn't completely go away.

At my husband's insistence, I went back to the doctor one more time. This time it was a different doctor who saw me. He admitted that he was stumped as well, until he asked a pertinent question that the other doctor hadn't asked. He asked if I had a problem with acid. I told him I'd quit eating wheat at the beginning of the year, and I rarely suffered with it anymore.

He diagnosed me with Acid Reflux Disease and gave me a pharmaceutical grade of Prilosec to take for a month. I took it for a few weeks, and my coughing diminished. But I still had a few weak sputter-type hacks and felt my throat and esophagus were raw.

I wanted balance for my gut, esophagus, and throat from all the hacking I'd done for the past 4 months, not simply mask the problem. So I began using Peppermint in my water (just 1 drop) and AlkaLime in some water before retiring for the night. Also when I was lying down, I would place 5 drops of Frankincense and Copaiba under my tongue.

Now my hack is gone. I had suffered for so many months that my throat was quite raw, so that's the reason I added the Frankincense and Copaiba. Though I am not proud of the fact that I went to the doctor, I am glad I did because I was able to get a diagnosis so I knew how to treat this problem to be able to eliminate my problem altogether. I love the power of these healing oils!
