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 have been diagnosed with a chronic pain syndrome because of numerous bouts of a virus in my body rather than outside of my body over the last four years. My pain is so bad that I had a pain pump implanted that runs through my spinal cord and has a port in my abdomen. I can give myself pain medication every four hours as needed. Then every three months I go back to the doctor to have the pump refilled.

I began using Young Living essential oils in December 2013. PanAway has been an amazing oil for me to relieve my pain. I began using it nightly on my feet and knees. Before this I couldn't even put the sheets over my feet because it hurt too badly.

The first three days I really didn't notice a difference. But the fourth day I slept well and had little pain. Now I have also added Valor and Copaiba in a spray bottle that I keep by my bed. I can now say that I have not taken any oral pain medicine nor used my pain pump since December. That's four months!

PanAway is amazing for me and has helped with internal pain and surface pain. Copaiba has helped with inflammation a great deal, and I just added that one in March. I didn't know what I was missing! Valor has also really helped with the pain I get in my back and muscles.

The cost of these three oils together is so worth replacing all of my oral medication and the drowsy feeling that pain meds cause. I have a hard time deciding which oil is my favorite. But I think PanAway wins hands down. It has even helped with headaches for me when applied to my temples and forehead.

So try the oils for yourself. Don't dump your meds cold turkey! Always consult your physician before getting off of any medication, but you generally can use essential oils along with your medications. After discussing it with your doctor, you may be able to wean off of your meds. Happy oiling!
