At age 60 my knees had begun to ache at night. I could no longer squat without pain. Suddenly I developed what turned out to be severe bursitis in one knee -- so severe I had to use crutches for a week. I went to my primary physician while waiting for an appointment with the orthopedist. He injected the knee with cortisone, which gave me much relief.

Two weeks later an MRI showed significant arthritis in the knee. By then I was pretty much over the episode, so the orthopedist advised taking 4 Aleve daily for 6 weeks, which I did. I still experienced stiffness and some pain immediately upon getting up after sitting for a while. I would sometimes take 8 to 12 ibuprofen a day.

Exactly one year later the same thing happened to the other knee. I had to borrow a wheelchair and use a cane for a week -- the pain was so bad. I immediately started taking the Aleve, and, by the time I saw the orthopedist, I was much better -- so nothing else was done. He said to continue taking Aleve, and if the pain worsened he could do a cortisone injection.

A few months later I even went to a rheumatologist because I wanted to see what I might do to prevent future episodes. I was hoping to get some advice on healing my knees. He said the regimen I was doing was about all I could do, and if the pain got bad he would do cortisone injections. I have to admit I even considered getting one of those raised toilet seats because I had to let out a groan just sitting down and getting up off the toilet seat.

A couple of months later I was introduced to Young Living, and I sought out a regimen for healing my knees. For 3 months I took 4 Sulfurzyme, 3 to 4 BLM capsules, and 2 ounces of NingXia Red daily. I applied Deep Relief to both knees every night for a month. The second month I applied PanAway neat. The third month I applied Clove oil neat.

After 3 months I realized my knees were 99% better. I decreased my dose of BLM and Sulfurzyme and no longer used NingXia Red. I began applying Wintergreen oil neat to my knees at bedtime. I pretty much stopped the Sulfurzyme and BLM for several months, and, even though I was still pain free, I have recently begun to take them again occasionally to keep them in my system.

It has now been a year, and I have no pain or stiffness when I get up from sitting. And I can walk up and down stairs without holding to the rail. It is a wonderful feeling to walk down a long hall at work with no knee pain. I have found out firsthand that Young Living essential oils can do what anti-inflammatory drugs cannot do.
