8. The Change…
Let me introduce you to doTERRA:
I was amazed that three oils could take care of my migraines and I had to learn how they worked. Zena, don't you love that name? The perfect name for a Gypsy. She explained they are not medications, they do not cure or heal anything. What they are, are from the earth. They come from plants, all parts of the plants. You can have two completely different oils come from the same plant, but from different parts. I find it fascinating. Oils can come from the roots, stems, the branches, bark, leaves, the blooms, the flowers, and the stamens. These plants have never been touched by chemicals. Plus, they are grown all over the world, even in third-world countries. These oils are 100% pure. There is nothing in them but the oil that is said to be in them. They are quite potent so you don't need to use much to get the most out of them and they are therapeutic-grade oils which means that they work WITH your body so that your body can do what God intended it to do.
Not only that but doTERRA has several outside companies testing the oils to test for purity. The oils are tests from distilling to each individual bottle. Plus each and every single batch is tested.
Back to my story, after I bought the oils for the migraines, I called Zena in about three days and asked her if she had anything for pain. In 5 minutes, she was at the door. She handed me a tube of something called 'Deep Blue.' It was a cream and she told me to put it on my feet. So I did. In less than five minutes, my pain had diminished immensely! I couldn't believe it! I asked her to explain to me again how this stuff works again because it works so fast on me! She said it was able to go through your skin and into your bloodstream and flow through your entire body. Your body works with oil, this particular oils helps your body handle pain. She also said these oils can actually get through the cell walls which is very beneficial if you get ill or some such.
Then she said her sister had Fibromyalgia and that she took the supplements to help her with the pain. She said that the supplements can really help in so many ways and that it takes about a week to get the full effect. Then she said something that really surprised me. She said that both the 'Deep Blue' and the 'Supplements' had anti-inflammatory properties in them. Well I thought about it. I was already taking vitamins, but I was still getting sick, so I switched and started taking taking doTERRA's supplements plus Terrazyme because I don't have a gallbladder any more. I also started taking their probiotic. I started taking a product called On-Guard because I always was getting sick. It took 4 years before I got pneumonia. I took care of it with oils, but I did go to the Doctor to get diagnosed. They wanted to put me on antibiotics, but I said no. I was over it in 5 days. It was wonderful. Zena had said it would take me a week to feel a difference with the Supplements. It took me 4 days. I was flabbergasted! I mean I was taking a really good vitamin when I changed over and so it shouldn't have mattered, but it did! The longer I was on them, the better I felt. When I got home, 3 months later, I joined as a wellness advocate.
I made a Doctor's appointment for my 3-month check and after the blood test he started taking me off this medication and that medication. He lowered dosages and was surprised at my blood sugar levels. He was really surprised with my migraine improvement and the fact that my neck was moving. He said he wanted me to continue with physical and massage therapies. My Bob had been researching while I was gone and made an appointment for me at the Mettler Center. Ben was wonderful and continued with my therapy. He is great!
As I continued with the doTERRA, I continued to feel better, I continued to drop medication at my Doctor's suggestion and eventually went from 22 medications to 9, until we started renovations on the farmhouse. Then the Doctor put me on 2 inhalers. It is so wonderful to not have to take so many medications. But let me be clear. doTERRA Essential oils, are NOT medications! They are oils that work with the body so that the body can work as God intended.
