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.

On Good Friday morning I woke up with the left side of my face red, painful, and severely swollen (my eye was almost closed). I went to the hospital emergency room, was diagnosed with an abscessed tooth, and was prescribed 300 mg x 3 times daily of strong antibiotic clindamycin.

On the second day of taking the antibiotic, I experienced a severe adverse reaction. Later after a colonoscopy, the problem was identified as Clostridium difficile colitis (C. diff colitis).

I quickly consulted with my sister Carla Green, who has been using essential oils in her medical practice for 14 years. She suggested "Gary's Super-Antibiotic in a Cap":

12 drops Thieves essential oil blend
2 drops Frankincense oil
6 drops Oregano oil

It all goes in a clear vegetable capsule and is taken 3 times daily.

Before starting this protocol, I prudently brought the information to my doctor, who said go ahead and try it. (My face was still very swollen and painful up to this point.) Within 2 days the swelling and pain were totally gone -- an amazing result!

I later found out that clindamycin is the worst culprit for causing C. diff colitis (20% - 30% of users contract it), which is difficult to get rid of and can become very serious.
