Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Over the last four years I have been hospitalized over 100 days. That's a lot of hospital visits! Not fun at all! One of the biggest issues for me has been severe and chronic pain located in my upper left side. It is extremely painful and caused nausea, constipation, and severe fatigue.

The pain is probably the most telltale sign. It usually hits very quickly and doubled me over, making me feel as though a knife is going through my abdomen straight through to my back. Literally it took my breath away at times.

Because of this and some other health issues, I was taking 24 (TWENTY-FOUR) different medications to keep me healthy. Some drugs were for pain, and some were antispasmodic and anti-nausea drugs.

I also took high doses of supplements only available through prescription, antibiotics, and enzymes. 24 medications is a LOT of medicine. I also hated what it did to my checkbook. We spent between $800 and $1,000 MONTHLY just on my prescriptions. I despised it!

Since I began using Young Living essential oils, I am now taking only ONE drug! ONE!! Here are some of the things that have helped me:

1. Lemon oil in my water every day
2. DiGize oil blend applied over my upper left abdomen area
3. Marjoram and Thieves oils applied on the bottom of my feet
4. Sulfurzyme and NingXia Red per the recommended directions

I drink Lemon water (with Lemon oil, not juice) daily. This has helped increase my Vitamin C levels, and that has in turn helped me to better absorb the iron and protein in my foods. This is the first time in four years that I have had a normal hemoglobin level! I learned that it is because Vitamin C helps your body absorb those things. I wish I would have known that before the several infusions I had to have for my absorption issues.

But now, because of my daily use of oils, I am off all of those medicines and am feeling better than I have in YEARS! My energy level has improved, and I am participating in life again.

If you have had trouble with these issues this all probably sounds very familiar. There are things that can be done. Don't get discouraged. Be proactive! Stay positive and try essential oils and Young Living's supplements. Supplements that are infused with essential oils absorb more quickly into your system and so they work better. I had to figure out exactly which ones would work for me. We are all different. What works for me may not work for you. But I know how desperate I became and what the doctors were telling me. I felt hopeless.

When I tried oils, it was my last resort. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. So with what I felt was my last hope, I stepped out and used something completely natural and therapeutic.

I honestly didn't believe they would work. I did NOT go off of ANY medications without discussing the plan with my doctor first and do not recommend that you do that either. Health issues are very serious and you should always check with your health care professional before changing what you are currently doing. But boy, was I surprised! My life has been changed by Young Living essential oils and supplements.

My hope and my passion is that my experiences could help someone else. Please feel free to contact me about my experiences if you are struggling with the same thing. I will be glad to tell you what I know. I'm not a doctor or any other medical professional. I have now gotten much more education and am a Certified Health Coach and Nutritionist. I sincerely want to help others.

Overall, I'm just a woman that has lived through a horrific medical drama.
