I am a 56 year old mother of 2 and grandmother of 5 and have been married for a very long time to the same wonderful man. I was introduced to essential oils, dōTERRA to be specific by a friend who has know me for years and knows that myself and my family suffer from Chronic Lyme Disease.
I was infected with Lyme at about the age of 12 in Mammoth Lakes, CA after I was found to have 20-25 ticks in my hair. For the most part my symptoms lay dormant until I started to have a family and that is where I began the slippery slope into very bad health.
I have struggled to maintain some sort of decent health all of my adult life and it has been a constant battle and vicious cycle of crushing fatigue and endless pain. I have had such an array of symptoms that it has to even keep track. Once I was given a symptom list by a Lyme specialist and what I told him was, "I have had nearly everyone of these symptoms with the exception of the testicular pain." Go figure, I'm female!
When I was introduced to dōTERRA I was taking 5 medications, today I believe with the help of essential oils and the approval of my doctor I am off 4 of them completely and the 5th is on it's way out, I am down to 1/3 of the dose I use to take just one time a day.
Even though I nearly had to be physically drug to pay attention to the oils, today I am living proof that they work. I am so grateful to have found them. They have not only changed my life, but the life of my family and countless friends and on to their friends.
dōTERRA really is a gift of the earth as it's name implies.
