Young Living information that can be helpful to you.
Let me ask you if you have any of the following tell-tale signs which 
indicate you may be well on your way towards having to deal with 
long-term, often debilitating, problems during the "golden years" of 
your life. Here are some of the kinds of symptoms, which should fly 
caution flags for you, especially if they are recurring symptoms, or 
symptoms which tend to be present with you more and more 
consistently as you age: Acne, Anxiety, Asthma, Bloating, 
Bacterial infections, Bronchitis, Cold hands and/or feet, Chemical 
sensitivities (to odors, etc.), Loss of concentration, Constipation, 
Cold sores, Cystitis, Colitis, Depression, Disturbed sense of smell, 
taste, hearing, and/or vision, Diarrhea, Dizziness, Low energy, 
Eczema, Endometriosis, Food sensitivities, or allergies, Fungal 
infections, (Candida, athlete's foot, etc.), Gastritis, Excessive hair 
loss, Hyperacidity, Heartburn, Hives, Hayfever, Hot or burning 
sensation during urination, Hyperactivity, Mild headaches, Irregular 
or rapid heartbeat, Impotence, Joint pains, Loss of memory, 
Migraines, Metallic taste in mouth, Excess mucous in 
head/sinuses (stuffiness) , Muscular pain, Numbness, and/or 
tingling, Pre-menstral cramping, Pre-menstral anxiety and/or 
depression, Psoriasis, Rapid breathing or panting, Sinusitis, 
Swelling and or Urinary infections.

Again, if you have any of these tend to be recurring symptoms, 
then you need to pay close attention to the following.

A simple way to get a reasonably good idea of how your body is doing in its 
attempts to regulate itself and fight the overgrowth of viruses, 
bacteria and fungi is by testing the pH of your first morning urine. 
This can be done by passing a strip of pH test paper through a 
stream of urine and then comparing the color of the test with a 
chart which indicates the degree of acidity or alkalinity of the urine. 
This procedure should be done for 5-10 days in order to get a 
reliable indication of where the pH would usually be. If the pH is 
consistently trending towards alkaline, it is moving in the right 
direction. If it tends to be on the acid side, then there is reason for 
concern. And, somewhat conversely, if you already have some of 
the symptoms mentioned above (remember, recurring symptoms, 
not occasionally) , then you can expect your first morning urine to 
be consistently on the acid side of the pH range and the urine test 
will confirm this.

In a nutshell, when the "terrain," or internal environment, of the 
body tends to be alkaline, then one has reason to be optimistic 
concerning his or her long-term health. On the other hand, when 
the biological terrain tends to be acid, then one can anticipate a 
steady deterioration in his or her health and, if nothing is done to 
help the body move towards an internal, alkaline state, then one 
can expect the manifestation of progressively serious chronic, and 
often debilitating problems. In other words we have a choice to 
either alkalize...or die.

Suffice it to say for now that most Americans will test "acid, " 
given our diets and our stressful lifestyles. We eat too much in 
the way of acid forming foods; we get very little exercise; and 
we take very little time to "smell the roses" these days.

In addition to making necessary diet adjustments and de-stressing 
ourselves, another important thing we can do is to take a good, 
alkalizing supplement on a regular basis. For example, minerals 
like Calcium and Magnesium have alkalizing qualities. Better yet, 
however, is an alkalizing powder, which has been formulated 
specifically to assist the body in its attempt to alkalize the 
biological terrain. As a Young Living Distributor, you have one 
of the best of these alkalizing powders available to you in your 
product "Alkalime."

If you have any of the above mentioned symptoms, it would be 
worth your while to evaluate Alkalime for yourself. I take this 
product personally and wouldn't be without it. I could tell you story 
after story where it has been a real lifesaver for me. Alkalime 
powder comes packaged in 8 ounce bottles and the way you take 
it is to stir a rounded teaspoon into about 4-6 ounces of pure water 
and then "chug" it down while it is still effervescing. Health 
practitioners who are familiar with this kind of product recommend 
taking it this way before retiring at night and, if a person is running 
quite "acid," the recommendation is to take it at 10am and 4pm as 
well. Also, Alkalime does a great job in neutralizing an acid 
stomach and many people use it for this express purpose. We also 
understand that Alkalime works quite well for athletes who want 
help in neutralizing the lactic acid buildup which results after hard 

When it comes to long-term health, this matter of acid/alkaline is 
serious business, indeed. I recommend that you get yourself some 
Alkalime and be sure to use the pH test strips to test your first 
morning urine to see what kind of changes occur over time.

Best of health to you,

Cancer Protocol
Dr. Richard Petras of Fairmont, West Virginia, explained on a teleconference 
call how he was able to help a female patient, Rosella, overcome terminal 
breast cancer with a protocol using essential oils and essential oil enhanced 
supplements. This protocol has been used on a number of cancer patients, 
including lung cancer and uterine cancer. The turnaround has been rather dramatic, often in a matter of weeks.
Cancer is acid and thrives in an acidic body. You must normalize the bodyâs 
Boost the immune system and the body will get rid of the cancer without 
invasive intervention such as chemotherapy, surgery or radiation. 
The Protocol: 
1. No animal protein (meat) 
2. No dairy (except fermented cheeses) 
3. No coffee 
4. No soft-drinks 
5. No tap water 
6. Drink only alkaline water. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice to a 
glass of water or a drop of therapeutic grade lemon essential oil to a glass of 
7. Eat only alkaline foods, raw or lightly cooked greens, grains, fruit, 
etc. Nothing packaged, canned or microwaved. 
8. Refrain from using shampoos, conditioners, creams, and lotions that 
have chemicals such as propylene glycol or sodium lauryl sulfate in them. 
9. Wear only natural fabrics such as wool or cotton -- no synthetic 
10. Stay away from electrical appliances that upset the natural frequency 
and resonance of the body, such as microwave ovens, cellular and portable 
phones, battery powered wristwatches, etc. In other words, avoid electrical 
pollution as much as possible. 
11. Get rid of all toxic household cleaners, which put gas into your home 
^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^ 
Here are some of the suggested oils and supplements: 
1. Frankincense oil, therapeutic grade only. Apply neat over the near area of concern. Prepare a retention enema (rectal implant) of 8 to 10 drops of frankincense mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of good quality vegetable oil (YL's V-6 Mixing Oil, or jojoba or grapeseed oil, all cold pressed from the health food store). Administer by small syringe inserted about one inch into the rectum just before bed and hold during the night. This small amount will not cause discomfort as it is absorbed very quickly through the portal veins in the rectum. This is to be done every night until disease free. 
2. Lavender oil - apply neat (straight from the bottle) over the area of concern. 
3. Exodus II oil blend -- apply neat over the chest, under the arms (lymph nodes) and over the area of concern. 
4. Exodus capsules (powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger) 2 capsules 2 to 5 times per day. 
5. Ultra Young Spray. Spray inside of cheeks three or four times a day. 
6. For male cancers also add Mister and ImmuPower essential oil blends. 
7. In some cases where the thyroid is also found to be dysfunctional, the supplement Thyromin is also added to the protocol. 
8. Several Essentialzyme tablets a day to aid in digestion. 
I hope this will be helpful, 
Jaci Smith 
Demonstrations showing how well our products work.
#1. Demonstrate Petro-Chemicals within our body. Take a black permanent marker and scribble on a plastic paper protector. Say: Who believes that drinking more water will flush the body of toxins like what is in this permanent marker? Now wipe the plastic with a towel dampened with water. Say: IT doesn't work. Now put a couple drops of Young Living's Lemon oil on the plastic and wipe it off with a dry towel. Say: Young Living therapeutic oils eat petrochemicals that accumulate in our body. Yet this oil that is strong enough to take off permanent marker and digest it is safe enough for me to digest. 
Lick a drop of lemon off your hand. Say: This demonstrates how the pure oil is able to flush the toxins out of the body with out damaging our body.

#2. Also with Young Living's Lemon oil. Take a Styrofoam cup Say: What is this made of? Answers should include chemicals, petrochemicals poisons. Drop 2-3 drops of lemon into the cup. The oil will eat through the cup and dissolve the chemicals that make up the cup. Use the above ending script to explain how lemon eats toxins within our body.

#3. PH Paper. Have a potential distributor/customer take their PH prior to drinking Ningxia Red, Alkalime or using several oils. Sample the NXR and then have them retest their PH immediately after and then a few minutes later or 10 minutes later. WOW! This is a great demonstration of pH.
Gary Young is a genius.

Hello Everyone,
From time to time I take my Nansee to an ND Scientist who 
specializes in viruses, bacteria, parasites & of course cancer. It's 
a long story but mainly we go to have her blood checked. The doctor 
knows I am with Young Living Essential Oils. so when I called to make 
an appointment he asked if I had an unopened bottle of Oregano and if 
so please bring with, I would like to test it.
I have never presented Young Living to him as my main objective. I 
was there for care for Nansee. In due time & the right time of course 
I will.
When we walked in there was a lady leaving who had Influenza. The 
doctor checked Nansee's blood under the scope and then asked if I 
brought the Oregano. I handed the bottle to him & he said I want to 
tell you something about Gary Young but first I need to get something 
to test this with from the other room. When he came back he started 
to talk about the test procedure. I reminded him he was going to tell 
me something about Gary. Yes Indeed he was.
Your Gary Young is a genius when it comes to essential oils and is 
considered a genius in the scientific community. He has without a 
doubt the best farms in the U.S. and second to none in the world. 
Guess who's gloating hearing all of this? Next he said, aside from 
that he also has built the best distillers in the world. All of his 
studies of the oils around the world has sure paid off and of course 
the contribution of his formulations and writings has put him on top 
of a select group.
While he was talking he opened the Oregano and said. " You were 
right Maurice, this is good stuff, no need to test it as the smell of 
carvatrol in the oil is perfect as is the color." Trust me folks 
I had no idea this man knew so much about essential oils.
Next, Would you like to see what your Oregano will do to Influenza. 
I have it on a slide from the lady who just left. Look in the 
telescope first to see what it looks like. It was a black spidery 
mass surrounded by blood. Now her sample is between two slides and we 
will apply the Oregano to the edge. If it is as good as I say, it 
will suck the black mass to it and you will see the mass turn white. 
This means of course that it is destroyed. He applied the oil to the 
edge and said look now into the scope and tell me what is happening. 
I was amazed. The oregano was pulling the black mass toward it and 
the mass was turning white.
There you have it. What an exciting day.
Importance of Enzymes
Essentialzymes - 4 

Enzymes and aging: Quite a concept to consider! 

A critical factor in aging, Enzymes are the spark of life... a critical energy that runs the entire body. Automatically, as we grow older, our bodies produce less and less enzymes, and as the body becomes depleted of enzymes nutrients essential to maintaining a young and healthy body become more and more scarce. 

Water, oxygen, minerals, fatty acids, vitamins, enzymes - each of these are important, and cannot be ignored. To approach our well-being in a wholistic way we must understand that no single aspect can be ignored or dismissed and that a proper balance of each vital ingredient is necessary. Digestive health is vital to assimilation of nutrients, and that is solely predicated on the body's ability to produce enzymes appropriate to our environment and diet. 

Enzymes are essential activators of chemical reactions that continually take place and act as catalysts, joining with coenzymes (vitamins and minerals). We're all familiar with vitamins and minerals but may not know that they're not activated, until they are processed by enzymes. Our potent and affordable Enzymes supplement digestion and proper assimilation of nutrients assisting your body's natural inner healing powers restoring health and vitality. 

We begin life with enzyme reserves that decrease with aging and from an enzyme deficient diet. As we become enzyme deficient, we age more quickly. The more we feed our enzyme reserves, the healthier we'll become. A nursing mother provides her baby with all the enzymes it needs to digest her milk. Have you ever noticed that the stool of a breast-fed baby is almost odorless until it starts eating cooked, processed food. Cooked food (especially meats) don't digest properly, and travels undigested into the small intestine. As we cook foods at temperatures above 118 degrees F., enzymes are destroyed and digestion is hampered, beginning the cycle of toxemia. 

Toxemia results from undigested food putrefying in the bowel tract and that poisons the blood, the root of all disease. It's estimated that 80% of diseases are caused by improperly digested foods and their by-products being absorbed into the body ("Survival into the 21st Century" by Viktoras Kulvinskas). 

The saying 'You are what you eat' is only partly correct. The truth is, you are what you digest. We cannot expect good health if our digestive system isn't functioning properly. Enzymes are essential to healthy digestion and perform specific tasks such as: 
a. Digest food 
b. Break down toxins 
c. Cleanse the blood 
d. Strengthen the immune system 
e. Build protein into muscle 
f. Contract muscles 
g. Eliminate carbon dioxide from the lungs
h. Reduce stress on the pancreas and other vital organs. 

Lack of enzymes is the reason for most body malfunctions. Enzymes are the workers in your body -- they carry out every chemical reaction. To have a healthy body we require both workers (enzymes) and building materials. The building materials are proteins (amino acids), minerals, and vitamins. These are necessary to build a healthy body. 

Intestinal health is most commonly undermined by: 
1. Antibiotic usage 
2. Excessive Sugar Consumption 
3. Stress 
4. Drinking Chlorinated Water 
5. Long term diet of Acid Foods 

When the ecology of the human gastrointestinal tract becomes disrupted, beneficial microorganisms can no longer flourish in numbers necessary for proper balance. Furthermore, harmful toxin producing bacteria and fungi begin to take over, changing the ecology of the gastrointestinal tract. Medical researchers have revealed that the #1 health complaint received by doctors worldwide is poor digestion, malabsorption and constipation, or its opposite, irritation and diarrhea quickly followed by complaints of tiredness, lack of energy, slow recovery, etc. The use of laxatives to relieve constipation can be avoided by supplementation of vital intestinal flora when there is evidence of imbalance such as gas and bloating. This condition is the result in part because of poor choice and combining of foods, and poor digestion of them usually due to lack of enzymatic activity. Here, we go full circle back to the need to balance enzymes with critical bowel flora for healthy digestion. The progressive results of imbalance causes energy to be radically reduced compromising the immune system. Chronic indigestion, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, candidiasis, arthritis, colon cancer and poor immune response are becoming more common, all resulting from imbalances in digestive processes and consumption of processed foods. 
Insects and Essential Oils
Essential Oils for Things that Bug You Around the House by David Stewart, Ph.D., R.A.

Among the many chemicals in our industrial environment that get into our systems and make us sick are the pesticides we use in our homes. We use them because they are toxic to the creatures that bug us, but they are also toxic to us. Sometimes the toxicity is immediately apparent: we get a headache, get sick or feel nauseous from the fumes or other contact. Sometimes the toxicity is subtle and can accumulate resulting in chronic complaints and disorders (including allergies, cancer and miscarriages) that can be serious and even deadly over time. Sometimes we even put poisons on our pets to deal with ticks and fleas, not realizing that these substances are not healthy for us or our animals. 

How to Use Oils for Pest Control 
We don't need poisons to kill pests. We can repel them (and even sometimes kill them) with substances that are not only harmless to us but are actually healthful to us. A list of oils follows that will solve most of your pest problems around the house. And how do you use them? One way is to get a pistol-grip squirt bottle. Mix a few drops of the oil with some water, shake it up, and start firing. If you have bugs on your plants, like aphids on your roses, you can squirt the leaves and drive the bugs away with no harm to your plant. You can do the same with the other pests. As for ants, you can smear a line of peppermint or spearmint across your kitchen counter or floor and the ants won't cross it. If you already have a line of ants invading your house, just draw a line of oil across them and they will turn back. It is fun to watch. And as for flies, you can knock them dead right out of the air with one shot from your pistol grip.

Oils and Breast Cancer
You know, I told you that when I joined Young Living I was not only skeptical about network marketing, I was also critical of it. Today, I believe that network marketing offer us an opportunity unlike any that has been available in the history of mankind. And I have a story to tell you that will explain why I believe this to be true. Several weeks ago, I had an opportunity to speak with a woman in Iowa, who is a chiropractor. Dr. Peters told me that she had been concerned because of a family history of breast cancer. She had gotten a mammogram, but felt, like I did, that mammograms may actually damage breast tissue. So she found a doctor in California who offered thermal imaging of breasts, and flew to CA to have this done. Unfortunately, the doctor found a number of "hot spots" and told her that he would want to re-examine her in 4 months. So she went back to IA, and, within a few days, Gary Young was there, speaking about the oils. Gary presented research by Dr. Jamie Matta, which had also been presented at the annual Young Living convention, describing the combination of frankincense oil with other oils such as sandalwood, tsuga, and myrtle, which were documented as oils that may prevent cancer. Dr. Peters bought these 4 oils. Each day, morning and evening, she would put a few drops of the frankincense in her hand, and add one of the other three oils, and then apply this to her breasts. She used the frankincense every day, and alternated in the other oils. In four months, when she went back to California for her check up, the doctor did not find any significant hot spots in her breasts. The doctor was amazed and wanted to know how this had happened. I was asked to give him an introductory lecture by phone so that he would understand why this might have happened. The doctor decided to do a small research study with 30 women to see whether he can duplicate these results in other patients, and told me that if he did, he would like to do a large study with 300 women. Isn't that exciting? Well, there's something even more exciting to me! While I am absolutely thrilled that the doctor will be validating the effects of the oils, I can begin to share this story with people today, and person to person, we can get this vital information out to as many people as possible - think of it!!! What if we could even prevent 10% of the breast cancer cases that occur? Wouldn't that be wonderful? That would make everything that we do worthwhile, in my opinion!!! Now, THAT is the power of NETWORK MARKETING!!!

Essential oils and Cancer
Per Young Life Research Clinic, one may wish to consider EO rotation also as 

Female Reproductive System: Tsuga effective 99.10%, 200 ppm. Use with 
Frankincense. Thyme Linalol effective 99%, 200 ppm. Patchouli effective 
98%, 50 ppm.

Breast: Sandalwood effective 98.10, 100 ppm. Myrtle 95.20%, 200 ppm. Tsuga 
93.10%, 200 ppm. Idaho Balsam kills 7 cancer lines.

Prostate: Sandalwood 84.10%, 100 ppm. Canadian Red Cedar 82.60%, 50 ppm. 
Myrtle 67%, 200 ppm. Thyme 56.70%, 50 ppm. Dill 5.50%, 200 ppm.

Skin: Grapefruit 80.50%, 200 ppm. Hyssop 75%.

Lung: 3 days Frankincense and Ledum, then 3 days Frankincense and Balsam and 
then 3 days Frankincense and Sandalwood. Then repeat rotation. Use 00 

Prostate: 3 days Frankincense and Tsuga, then 3 days Frankincense and 
Balsam, then 3 days Frankincense and Ledum and then repeat rotation.

Leukemia, Lymphoma: 3 days Frankincense and Balsam, 3 days Frankincense and 
Tsuga, 3 days Frankincense and Lavender, then repeat rotation.

Breast: Topically 6 times per day then cover with hot, damp towel for heat 
(better penetration) . Frankincense and Tsuga, then Frankincense and 
Sandalwood, rotate.

Liver: Frankincense and Ledum, then Frankincense and Tsuga, then 
Frankincense and Balsam and then repeat rotation.

For cancer use equal parts of Balsam and Frankincense, 6 times a day 
topically, 6 capsules internally. 00 capsules in the health food store hold 
22 drops, 11 drops in each capsule.

At the clinic, Gary uses these oils internally, rotating every 3 days a 
different pair:

Frankincense and Balsam

Frankincense and Tsuga

Frankincense and Ledum

Frankincense and Lavender

Frankincense and Clove

Use 2 at same time, then switch to next one for 3 days, then switch to next 
one for 3 days. Why? Because cancer cells can create their own immunity. 
Rotate to keep cancer cells in shock, no time to create an immunity. This 
must be done often daily and depending on the size of the tumor can take up 
to 6 months to rid the body of it. Some take less time, some take more. Be 
patient and keep the "Intent" clear on clearing the body from the cancer and 
it will work.

The Malignancy Recipe from his talk entitled Wellness Support and available 
on one of the breakout session CDs. These amounts are 00 capsules and you 
take each type for 3 days. Start with one capsule and if all goes okay, 
increase the number. Muscle test or dowse for how many a day.

Each capsule:

1st 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Tsuga Oil.

2nd 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Ledum Oil

3rd 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Lavender Oil

4th 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Idaho Balsam Fir

5th 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Clove Oil

6th 3 days: ½ Frankincense, ½ Sandalwood Oil.

(No mention was made as to how many of these rounds one would need.)

Use variations with rectal implants, vaginal implants. Each individual 
person is different; reacts differently. Cleansing bowel and liver goes 
along with all of this. You Are What You Eat! Imagine plenty of raw foods 
and juicing.

Below is the protocol for stomach and colon cancer. To enhance the action 
of essential oils, cancer requires strong cleansing and fasting programs. 
Cancer is best treated in its early stages by alternating varying the 
essential oils used each week, so the cancer cells do not build up a 
resistance to the treatment.

For a cancer preventative, mix up to 20 mg of these essential oils in 1 
tablespoon of vegetable oils and put in 00 size capsule and take one per 
day. The gastritis associated with H. pylori infection is closely 
associated with gastric cancers. Highly antiseptic oils can kill 
Helicobracter pylori that causes the infection. These oils included 
Oregano, Mountain Savory, Tea Tree and Thyme.

Single oils to use are Clove, Frankincense, Ledum, Orange, Tsuga and 

EO Application Ingestion: 00 size, 2-4 times daily. Rice Milk 2-4 times 

Colon Caner Regimen:

Day 1. 10 drops of Frankincense, 10 drops Tsuga in a capsule and swallow 3-4 
times daily.

Day 2. 16 drops Frankincense and 3 drops Clove in capsule. Take orally 3-4 
times daily.

Day 3. Mix equal parts Frankincense and Lavender in a capsule and take 3-4 
times daily.

Day 4. Take Frankincense capsules 3-4 times daily.

Day 5-8. Repeat the above 4 day cycle.

Day 9. Rest for 4 days.

Day 13. Restart the regimen.

Dietary Supplementation:

Essentialzyme, ComforTone, ICP, Detoxzyme

Supplementation Regimen:

1. Begin with Essentialzyme to digest toxic waste.

2. Take 2 capsules ComforTone 3 times daily. Increase by one daily until 
the bowels move. Then begin reducing. If diarrhea occurs, reduce amount of 
ComforTone used and increase ICP fiber beverage. Drink plenty of purified 
or distilled water.

3. ICP fiber cleanse: Begin with 1 tablespoon in water, 3 times daily. 
Increase to 2 tablespoons 3 times daily or as needed until bowls are moving 
regularly. The above was taken from the EODR.
Sulfurzyme with MSM is a great detoxifier. 

Each of us needs sulfur and here's why.

Sulfur is a mineral, which like vitamin C, is constantly being used
up and depleted by the body. MSM (Methyl Sulonal Methane) occurs 
naturally in food and is a source for sulfur. Unfortunately, the 
amount of MSM we need to sustain optimum health is deficient in
large scale commercially grown whole foods and processed foods.
As we fail to adequately replenish our sulfur reserves on a daily 
basis, we become more vulnerable to opportunistic diseases and 
dengenerative conditions.

Why sulfur is so important:

1. Aids the liver in bile secretion.
2. Is significant for insulin production.
3. Purifies and cleanses the body and blood, prompting the cells to 
eject toxins and prevent their accumulation.
4. Normalizes heart function.
5. Ameliorates (to make better or more tolerable) allergies.
6. Is a key component in sulfur-bearing amino acids which are 
considered to be the building blocks of protein and muscle 
7. Helps maintain the pH balance of the body.

One of Young Living's most sought after products is Sulfurzyme.
This land-mark product that not only revives the immune system, but
also stops an array of degenerative conditions...and actually
regenerates the body. The two main ingredients in Sulferzyme are MSM
and Chinese Wolfberry. The Wolfberry is a goldmine in nutrients. It
has vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, E, C, beta carotene, 18 amino acids and 21
trace minerals.

If you doubt that MSM can actually reverse the effects of aging,
read what Ted Baker wrote: 

"Two months ago, when speaking to author Lindsey Williams about MSM,
he suggested I consider taking at least five times the amount I had
been taking. I was taking 1 to 2 teaspoons daily. However, since that
conversation I decided to take 5 to 6 teaspoons daily.

Well, lo and behold, just as Lindsey said, this past week I took off
my glasses for reading. At an airport in Ohio, I read over 120 pages
of a book with fairly fine print without glasses. That would have been
impossible for me just two months ago. Besides my eyes improving
immensely, my hair is filling out and my skin tone has improved
measurably. I must have had two dozen people come up to me personally
during our seminar trip back to Ohio and the Carolinas. These people 
had not seen me in six months and many said they couldn't believe how 
much younger I appeared to them. Believe me, I can only attribute this
regeneration factor to the continued use of essential oils and the
incredible Sulferzyme product." - Ted Baker

Before leaving the subject, let me add MSM has been clinically 
studied for over twenty years. There are NO side effects reported in
any of these studies. In short, it has shown itself to be quite safe
and effective. You couldn't do better than getting started on
Tendon Formula and Magic Pain Relief Formula
The tendon formula - I just take an ounce of Ortho Sport and add 20 drops
each of Aroma Siez, Lemongrass, Lavender, Peppermint and Wintergreen.

Magic pain relief formula
Combine the following in the exact order in an amber colored glass jar: 8
drops Spruce, 8 drops Sandalwood, 7 drops Fir, 5 drops Hyssop, 4 drops
Lemongrass, 5 drops Helichrysum, 4 drops Birch (or Wintergreen) , 2 drops
German (blue) Chamomile and 1 drop Blue Tansy in 1 ounce of V-6 Mixing Oil
Thieves Killing Mold
Edward R Close, PhD, PE, has documented evidence of the dramatic effects of Young Living's Thieves Oil in destroying airborne mold spores in as little as 24 hours. Mold and air samples were taken before and after treatment of commercial facilities with Thieves and Thieves Household Cleaner. Analyses provided by an independent laboratory clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of Thieves Oil in destroying toxic mold, black molds, and numerous fungi that adversely affect people's health and property values. 

Dr. Ed Close holds a Bachelor's Degree in Math/Physics and a PhD in environmental science and engineering. He is a Registered Professional Engineer (PE) in the State of Missouri, and has more than 30 years experience in the environmental and remediation fields.
MultiGreens - The Super Food of Super Supplements
By Jim Lynn

If you have yet to discover Young Living's amazing 
MultiGreens supplement, I hope you will want to order a 
quantity soon after reading this report. Once you 
experience the power of this super green, super rich 
nutrient for yourself, you will never want to go without it 
ever again.

MultiGreens provides one of the widest spectrums of 
naturally occurring nutrients known to man. Oh sure, 
there are other "green food" supplements out there on 
the market, and they are good. But, friend, wait until you 
read about MultiGreens . If so called "green food" 
supplements are called "super" supplements, MultiGreens 
is the super supplement of super supplements.

So what makes Young Living's MultiGreens super green 
supplement superior to other super green supplements 
you ask?

To begin, MultiGreens is a "live" food containing nutrients 
and phytochemicals that you will never find in a typical 
vitamin supplement, nutrients like: enzymes, chlorophyll, 
amino acids, etc.
Two of MultiGreens primary ingredients are Spirulina and 
Barley grass. Spirulina (a blue-green algae containing 
over 100 synergistic nutrients) is rich in concentrated 
protein and chlorophyll. Barley grass is considered the 
most nutritional of the green grasses.

In articles in the Oct.27th, 1997 issue of MacLeans 
magazine and the April 25th, 1994 issue of Newsweek 
magazine, plant compounds known as "phytochemicals" 
were hailed as an exciting and promising new area of 
nutritional health research. The nutritional power behind 
plant nutrients and phytochemicals is not that they 
are there in "megadose" amount of any one particular 
nutrient, rather it is in the way all the plant elements 
"combine to work together".

Dr. Yohishide Hagiwara, a leading authority on health 
food and green foods, said, "It was clear to me, then, that 
the leaves of the cereal grasses provide the nearest 
thing this planet offers to the perfect food. For reasons of 
palatability, higher nutrient content, and favorable 
harvesting features, green barley stands out as the 
best among these."

Green barley grass also contains chlorophyll. 
Chlorophyll has been studied for its potential as a 
deodorant, in stimulating tissue growth, and in 
stimulating red blood cells in connection with blood 
supply. Perhaps most remarkable is the similarity 
between chlorophyll and the red pigment in blood. 
Research in the 1940s demonstrated that the two 
pigments react the same during breakdown.

According to an article in the Journal of the National 
Cancer Institute (Jan. 4, 1995), chlorophyll fed to 
laboratory animals reduces absorption of three dietary 
carcinogens: heterocyclic amines (found in cooked 
muscle meats), polycyclic hydrocarbons (found in 
smoked and barbecued foods), and aflatoxin (a mold on 
The chlorophyll formed complex compounds with the 
carcinogens while they were still in the digestive tract, 
limiting their bioavailability. Chlorophyll has also been 
found to reduce fecal, urinary, and body odor in geriatric 

But MultiGreens has much more going for it than Barley 
grass, it's primary ingredient is Spirulina. Spirulina is 58 
times richer in organic Iron than raw spinach and 28 
times richer than raw beef liver! Filled with Beta 
Carotene (Pro Vitamin A), Spirulina is 25 times richer 
than raw carrots. It contains a spectrum of every 
natural antioxidant known, including: the antioxidant 
vitamins B-1 and B-6; the minerals zinc, manganese and 
copper; the amino acid methionine; and the 
superantioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin E and trace 
element selenium.

Spirulina is also nature's richest whole-food source of 
Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Its oils are 3 times richer 
in GLA than evening primrose oil. Studies have indicated 
that GLA helps lower blood cholesterol and high blood 
pressure and eases such conditions as arthritis, 
premenstrual pain, eczema and other skin conditions.

The combination of Spirulina and Barley grass separates 
MultiGreens from the super green food supplement shelf, 
but this still does not explain why Young Living's 
MultiGreens is the super supplement of green food 
supplements. So what IS the secret?
- Essential Oils!

So what you say? Well experience has shown that 
before putting essential oils in MultiGreens, there was a 
42% blood absorption in 24 hours. After adding essential 
oils to MultiGreens, blood absorption increased to 64% in 
30 minutes and 86% in one hour. The conclusion is that 
the cells were now receiving nutrients that they had 
previously not been able to assimilate. No other super 
green food supplement can make this claim. (Essential 
Oils Desk Reference, 1st Edition, p. 205)

Young Living's MultiGreens is the only super "green food" 
supplement containing the essential oils of Melissa, 
Lemon, Lemongrass and Rosemary. Not content with the 
formulation, Young Living also added Bee Pollen, Panax 
Ginseng, and amino acids like L-arginine, L-cystine and 
L-tyrosine into this fabulous product. There is simply no 
other product that can compare itself to MultiGreens on the 
market today.

Offered in capsule form, the suggested daily intake to 
increase metabolism is three capsules twice a day. You may 
safely increase this amount as needed until you begin to 
feel results.

Athletes and others dealing with stress often take larger 
amounts; sometimes as many as six times the suggested 
daily amount listed on the label.

Best results can be obtained by placing MultiGreens dry 
under the tongue. Just open the capsule and place the 
green powder on a small dish. Pinch the powder between 
the thumb and first finger and place under the tongue. 
Move your tongue back and forth. The MultiGreens will be 
absorbed through the mucous membrane directly 
into the bloodstream. Allow about one minute to pass 
before drinking water or juice to give the MultiGreens time 
to be absorbed into the mucous membrane.

Excerpts from:
The Emotional Connection to Brain Damage: How Young Living Helps Generate Change
by Karen Boren

Dan and Corinne Allen live seven miles from Nezperce, Idaho. Their 200-acre property has another function beyond its fields of wheat: it is a place of rejuvenation. In addition to the Allen's two-story home are a clinic and a guest house for those seeking new skills to help with brain damage.

Dr. Corinne Allen has a master's degree in counseling and a PhD in nutrition. She delved into neurodevelopment to help her brain-injured daugher, who was born not breathing. "I always wanted to know what we could do better, deeper, and faster," she explained. As her daughter's health improved. Dr. Allen wanted to share what she had learned.

Four to five times yearly, Dr. Allen holds her 12-day Brain Camps, where individuals with issues can experience profound transformation. She uses multiple modalities in helping people to recover their health, but Young Living essential oils are foundational to her program.

Dr. Allen uses 15 quantum modalities such as sound, light, laser, and color therapy, along with balance and coordination exercises. Meals are all-natural and gluten free. But the key that seems to unlock progress is an emotional release using Young Living's Idaho blue spruce oil, sacred frankincense oil, and clove oil.

After learning about blue spruce at the Young Living International Grand Convention, Dr. Allen immediately felt that this new oil was going to be pivotal. "Hunches are my hounds of heaven," she said. "What started out as a five-year program to restore balance is what we achieve now in two days with emotional release," she marveled.

Dr. Allen explained that emotional trauma and stess can lock up in us and keep us sick. Now we can have a way to unlock it in about an hour. It's so powerful. You can be transformed in an hour," she said. The Brain Camp is also deeply spiritual. "The Idaho blue spruce oil is a key for our connecting to God," she said.

Young Living Platinum Dan Keskey suffered from a head injury and severe electromagnetic frequency poisoning, saying he felt there was a vise gripping his head. He came to the 12-day program for help, but his input was crucial in improving the emotional release protocol. He pointed out an emotional trigger point between the right foot's big toe and the one next to it that, combined with the three oils, ramped up the protocol's power. "I call frankincense our divine nature activator," he quipped.

Kelly Still, 28, lost some of her hearing and experienced developmental delays due to a vaccine reaction. She came to the Brain Camp desiring the skills that would enable her to live on her own when she returned to North Carolina. Facilitator Kari Browning was able to help Kelly work through anxieties by using essential oils and prayer as she faced returning home to her first apartment.

Dr. Allen recommends Stress Away Roll-On to ground her facilitators. Copaiba, spikenard, and palo santo are other favorite oils. "Most people who have traumatic stress from abusive upbringings suffer from constant adrenal fatigue. The loop in the brain won't shut off because of stuck emotions. We use cinnamon and lemon myrtle essential oils and they make a huge difference," she said. "It's because of essential oils that remarkable changes are possible in such a short time."

Dear Blessed Oilers,
My Daughter Jessica is almost nine months pregnant, just one week away from 
her due date. Last week the baby was still in a breach position and her doctor 
was recommending a C-Section as the possible solution. I had saved and 
printed your message, "oils and childbirth" from 5/24/06, and we were using some of the oils that Gary Young used with his wife's pregnancy, Myrrh and Lavender, 3 drops with V-6 Mixing Oil, and I also felt the urge to include Gentle Baby so we added that also. This combination also is helping the stretch marks as well, and the V-6 mixing oil is such a wonderful healing for the skin, as I 
have found with my complexion. 

I remembered another message posted here about Gary Young using Myrhh in 
Ecuador to turn a breach child and deliver it safely, so we tried increasing the 
Myrhh and applying it more often. Within 12 hours we could see and feel that 
the baby was rotating. My daughter went to bed in the evening and she felt 
alot of strong movement from the baby, and the next morning when she woke up I could see that the baby was verticle again, but we didn't know if the baby had 
returned to the breach position or if it had indeed moved down into the birth 
position. My daughter had an ultrasound scheduled for that morning in order 
for the doctor to see what was going on with the baby's breach position, but 
when they did the ultrasound they could see that the baby had indeed moved into 
the correct birth position!!!! !! YES!!!!

Now we are focusing on using the oils for labor and pain management so I 
ordered the oils regarding that from the "oils and childbirth" message that Gary 
Young used to help his wife's labor pain, Vetiver and Valerian, and also Clary 
Sage with Peppermint which Gary used to bring on his wife's delivery after she 
was dilated to 5 cm. We are also going to use the Trauma LIfe and 
Frankincense to annoint the baby as Gary did. I feel confident that we are prepared for the delivery by having these miraculous oils, but I am also going to take my entire box of oils with me to the hospital birthing room so that I can have 
all of these oils available to us as we pray for guidance during the labor and 

I also researched essential oil testimonials on the testimonials website 
(www.oil-testimonia ls.com) and found that a women wrote regarding using 
Frankincense for her pain and labor contractions and in her own words: FRANKINCENSE IS SOOOOO AMAZING!!!" She also diffused Frankincense and reported that "everyone in the room was calm during the labor". Another woman wrote that she diffused "Peace and Calming" with the same results.

My daughter had a miscarriage 2 years ago so my upline recommended that she 
used YL Progesterone cream during the first 4 months to assure maintainance of 
the pregnancy, since it is a lack of sufficient Progesterone during this time 
that often causes miscarriage. My daughter had been previously diagnosed with 
estrogen dominance and pre-menopausal, so it made sense to use the 
Progesterone. Of course we have no way of knowing for certain if this is why she was able to continue this pregnancy, but since this is safe to use we felt that it 
was "better safe than sorry".

Unfortunately her miscarriage was so extremely painful that she now has fears 
of the upcoming labor pain, including the fact that throughout her pregnancy 
she has been told multiple "horror stories" regarding labor and delivery. 
However, I am always reminding her that none of these women had the essential 
oils to help them!!! Also her pain was greatly increased by the synthetic 
hormone that they gave her at the hospital to expel the placenta, however the 
placenta did not completely expel anyway. The doctor gave her 24 hours to expel the remaining placental tissue and if not, he was planning to scrape the tissue out the next day. The doctor told us that he hoped not to have to do that 
since this procedure can cause damage to the uterus and possibly interfere with 
future pregnancy. I prayed for guidance as to which oil to use to accomplish 
this and felt that D-Tone (now called D-Gize) would make this happen although I 
had never read anywhere of using this oil for this purpose. The beauty of 
using the oils is that you can try one and if it doesn't accomplish the purpose, 
you can just go on to the next oil until you get the results you need. 
However, while I was contemplating which oil to try next, within an hour my daughter was in the bathroom expelling the placental tissue. So she applied D-Tone again, and had another expulsion. We continued to apply it just to make certain that no tissue remained, but she did not have any further reactions. When 
she returned to the doctor the next day, his examination showed no placental 
tissue remaining in the uterus. He was certain that he was going to have to 
scrape it out manually, but it was all gone!!!

I also ordered a video from Amazon.com called, "Gentle Birth Choices" which 
helped my daughter to be more confident about the benefits of natural birthing 
versus "standard medical procedure". Since these women on this video were 
able to deliver without any pain medications, my daughter now believes that it is 
actually possible to accomplish this, especially since these women did not 
even have the wonderful benefits of the oils. This video also convinced us of 
the benefits of having the assistance of a doula or midwife so we found a team 
of 2 women who work together to be with her and support her needs during the 
labor and delivery. These women have offered their services free of charge 
since they are still in their training program. This saved us the normal $600.00 
fee which is actually a bargain price for the guidance and assistance that 
doulas offer, but since we are limited financially this helped us to be able to 
purchase all of the oils. I highly recommend the "Gentle Birth Choices" 
video. At 29.95 it was worth every dime, just as doulas and midwifes and YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS are worth every dime!!!

I am hoping that using the oils during the labor and delivery will also 
become a positive experience and further education for natural birthing procedures for the two doulas who will be present and assisting. Imagine the blessing of these oils that these women could share with others who are dedicated to natural birthing!!!!

I am going to copy all of the information that I have so far mentioned above 
to give to these doulas when we meet them at the hospital, but I am also 
needing any other additional information that you would have in your files to give 
to them in addition to what I already have. I would be very grateful if you 
could send that to me right away because this baby could arrive at any moment. 
I should have requested this information sooner, but it just struck me today 
that the more information I have for them, the better this opportunity to 
introduce them to the oils will be.

Dear Oilers,
I am known in my community as the doctor who gets women pregnant. It is quite easy. First we use the cleansing trio and JuvaTone. Nine times out of ten it is a liver problem not doing its hormonal functions. Then probably half the women need prenolone+. Usually these people are pregnant within 6 months. Sometimes we need to use thyromin, or use Femalin to clean up cysts or other fibrous tissues. I am sorry I am not a speller this morning nor taking the time to look up names please forgive me.

For sterile men, I have only had two come to me so far, both had pituitary problems helped with UltraYoung+ and Mister and Prenolone.
Happy Holidays,
Dr. D. 
-Pregnancy and Blood Sugar Levels ------------ ---
I have been a member of YL since September 2001. I am 43 years old, at least 100 pounds over weight and have several health areas that needed support. I tried in early September to donate blood for the Red Cross and though I was taking another companies vitamins and 3  times the recommended amount of Iron, I was told I was anemic and could not donate blood. In desperation, I decided I needed to use something so I turned to my friend Karen who had been trying to get me to try the oils for 3 years. 

I began using R.C. for chronic sinuses, Valor for chronic lower back pain and Thieves to brush my teeth and gums. I also got the Prenolone+ cream to help balance my mood swings. Hope Oil for situations I emotionally felt were hopeless. I ordered the Essential 7 kit and began using all of the oils twice daily. Lemon oil in capsules helped with my anemia. 

Soon after, I also tried the Vita-Green to help with Candida. Master Hers for vitamins to replace the other brand. It was like a magical formula for my body. Seemingly overnight I was able to begin eating healthy, mostly raw foods (lots of fresh spinach salads=very high in protein) and in less than 3 months I was able to loose 43 pounds and my Candida symptoms I have had since my last pregnancy 4 years ago, virtually disappeared. 

I went from sleeping 10 hours a day to six and felt fully rested. 

I also had been trying for 1 1/4 years to get pregnant. I did a cleanse in October and in November was able to conceive. Most people understand when a woman is pregnant her body is more difficult to put and keep in balance. When I got pregnant my body had some readjusting to do. In my second month I had to take PD 80/20 for 30 days to balance my hormones. I also went through a period when I was not sleepy but could not literally move off my bed. Karen, my up line suggested I take Thyromin. It took only 4 days of using the Thyromin and I was able to begin to function again. 

While I was sensitive to the smells of most of the oils for the first few months of pregnancy Lemon Oil became my savior. I used it for everything from (diluted with V6) as a deodorant, to full strength on my nose and forehead for sinus problems, to 5 to 7 drops in a capsule to keep my liver from being to toxic, stopping my continual nausea I had been experiencing. 

Alka Lime has been a great help keeping my pH better balanced and since I have been using it regularly I have been able to eat healthier, more salads and fresh fruit, using Stevia as a sweeter and have had no weight gain for 2 months. I am not trying to "diet"...I just usually gain at least 10 pounds a month because of the cravings for sugar I have. 

My midwife was amazed at my hemoglobin level. (The higher the level the better the oxygen exchange rate is throughout the body.) I told her that is exactly what the oils do. 

I am now a few days from beginning my 7th month of pregnancy and have been having to watch my blood sugar levels for several weeks now. I had problems with my last 2 pregnancies. Tonight I ate two chocolate-frosted graham cracker. (I waited too long to order my Alka Lime and ran out a couple of days ago and I did not deal well with the cravings) Two hours later my blood sugar level was up. I was sweating while sitting still, my heart was racing and I wanted to sleep. I took my blood sugar level with a glucometer my midwife had left for me to use. My blood sugar level was 208 at 7:18 pm. I laid down for a minute then forced myself to get up and go look under Diabetes in my oil book. One of the oils suggested to help lower blood sugar levels was Thieves. I had some diluted with V6 and put some on my feet, back, chest and over my pancreas area. I then put a drop full strength in my mouth and on the vita flex point for the pancreas on my left foot. Nine minutes after the first check, and about 5 minutes after using the Thieves, at 7:27pm I took my blood sugar level again. It was 164. One more drop of Thieves in my mouth and at 7: 37 pm my blood sugar level was 154. I was amazed. All I could think was "I love these oils". Even when I do something that is not very smart with my health habits, they are able to help me out. 

My Alka Lime should be in tomorrow and you can be sure I won't wait too long to order it again. 

I often have people ask me with great concern throughout this pregnancy "How are you feeling?" I can tell they are bracing themselves for a list of aches, pains, and hardships. They are constantly surprised when I say "I feel really good." Their usual reply is a puzzled "Really?" I then explain I am sure I sound like a 
commercial but I am doing really great because of the Young Living oils and supplements I am taking. In fact, I feel better then I did with my last two pregnancies 4 years ago and 9 years ago. With my pregnancy 9 years ago I was on antibiotics (I think 4 times) for sinus infections. By the time my baby came my body was completely wiped out and there were complications at delivery time with the birth. 

I am looking forward to using the oils for the labor and birth of this baby and am sure I will see more "miracles" from having the body systems supported by the oils.

For the baby with colic. Mom should start taking digestive enzymes every time you eat. It will help the baby tremendously.

Baby Wipes Recipe
Take one roll of "nice quality" paper towel and cut in half
(to make 2 small rolls) take the core out of the middle of one 
of the small rolls and put into a airtight container.
Boil 1 1/2 cups water and mix in
2 tsp. kids scent lotion
2 tsp. kids scent bath gel
2 tsp. v-6 mixing oil
Mix together with a wire whisk and pour over the paper towels in the container, let sit until it has absorbed the liquid. When you're ready to use pull wipes from the center of the roll. Keep in airtight container! These wipes are awesome & 100% chemical free....

Essential sugars
There is another network marketing company that is based on glycobiology or essential sugars. These healthy sugars help the cells to communicate to each other properly so they are important to health. Just for your information by taking our Ningxia Red, Sulfurzyme and BLM you are getting all of the essential sugars that you need for good health as well as lots of other good nutrition and of course some essential oils.

The Power of the Sense of Smell.
Research has shown that the effects of fragrance and aromatic compounds
on the sense of smell can exert strong effects on the brain especially on the 
hypothalamus (the hormone command center of the body) and limbic system 
( the seat of emotions). Some essential oils high in sesquiterpenes, such as 
myrrh, sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver, melissa, and frankincense, can 
dramatically increase oxygenation and activity in the brain. This may directly 
improve the function of many systems of the body.

When a fragrance is inhaled, the odor molecules travel up the nose where 
they are trapped by olfactory membranes that are well protected by the 
lining inside the nose. Each odor molecule fits like a little puzzle piece 
into specific receptor cell sites that line a membrane known as the olfactory 
epithelium. Each one of the hundreds of millions of nerve cells is replaced 
every 28 days. When stimulated by odor molecules, this lining of nerve cells 
triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory 
bulb then transmits the impulses to the gustatory center (where emotional 
memories are stored), and other parts of the brain that are directly connected to 
those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, 
memory, stress levels, and hormone balance. Essential oils can have pro-
found physiological and psychological effects.

The sense of smell is the only one of the 5 senses directly linked to the limbic 
lobe of the brain, the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, 
and joy all emanate from this region. The scent of a special fragrance can evoke 
memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of it. When smells are concerned, we react first and think later. All other senses (touch, taste, hearing, and sight) are routed through the thalamus, which acts as the switchboard for the brain, passing stimuli onto the cerebral cortex (the conscious thought center) and other parts of the brain.

The limbic lobe (a group of brain structures that includes the hippocampus and 
amygdala located below the cerebral cortex) can also directly activate the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is one of the most important parts of the brain, acting as our hormonal control center. It releases chemical messengers that can affect everything from sex drive to energy levels. The production of growth hormones, sex hormones, thyroid hormones, and neurotransmitters such as serotonin, are all governed by the hypothalamus, thus, the hypothalamus is refered to as the "master gland."

Essential oils--through their fragrance and unique molecular structure--can 
directly stimulate the limbic lobe and the hypothalamus. Not only can the inhalation of essential oils be used to combat stress and emotional trauma, but it can also stimulate the production of hormones from the hypothalamus. This results in increased thyroid hormones (our energy hormone) and growth hormones (our youth and longevity hormone).

Through inhalation studies they have found that diffusing essential oils can bring about a heightened level of activity in the hypothalamus and limbic systems of the brain, which can have dramatic effects on not only emotions, learning and attitude, but also many physical processes of the body, such as immune function, hormone balance, and energy levels. High levels of sesquiterpenes occur in melissa, myrrh, cedarwood, clove, vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, and frankincense. They can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28%.

Diffusing or directly inhaling essential oils can have an immediate positive impact on mood. Olfaction is the only sense that can have direct effects on the limbic region of the brain. Studies at the University of Vienna have shown that some essential oils and their primary constituents (cineol) can stimulate blood flow and activity in the emotional regions of the brain.

Clinical studies at the Department of Psychiatry at the Mie University of Medicine showed that lemon not only reduced depression but reduced stress when inhaled.

I suffered from depression for a short while with a very stressful job. My doctor gave me a prescription drug for it. I did not want to go that route but had no choice. A few months later I was introduced to the oils. One of the oils was Peace and Calming for depression. I slowly weaned myself off of the depression drug and have been rubbing Peace and Calming on my feet every day. No more depression! Wow, these oils are a miracle! 
Janice Erhart
I had been taking an anti-depressant (prozac) for a few years then I was introduced to RutaVala. I began by putting RutaVala on the back of my neck (bottom of the brain stem) before bed and taking a capsule of 4 to 5 drops in the morning or whenever I remembered. 

I did that for a few days then kept taking a little more prozac out of the capsule and adding a drop or 2 of RutaVala. I did this until I had no more prozac to remove. Now I just take one capsule of RutaVala once a week (about 8 to 10 drops) and no more prozac.
Dawn Child
With the help of many essential oils, I am getting off Prozac. Aside from exercise, light therapy and supplements I apply and smell the Young Living oil's Valor, Frankincense, Peace and Calming, etc. I am getting needed oxygen to my brain and cells. I feel blessed! 
Sheli Toepfer 
I have lost both beloved parents within 6 months and credit the following 'formula' for helping me out of a deep depression after the first death, and getting me through the second funeral with much more grace and dignity than I would've been able to muster without the oils: Put a drop of Valor on your wrist and hold your other wrist against it for a moment (drives the oil in). Put Harmony on all chakra points, and a drop of Joy over your heart. Try this for grief or depression. 
Nancy Summers
Depression is a battle I fight on a daily basis. I was diagnosed with Bi-polar Disorder. I believe I have had this since I was a child, but was only diagnosed with this as an adult. I don't like being on prescription drugs because they are not only expensive, but most of them are highly addictive and you never know what side affects you will have as a result of taking them. Since becoming aware of the wonderful benefits of using essential oils, I use Lavender and Peace & Calming Essential oils on a daily basis. 

I have tried Valor Essential Oil, and it was alright, but not really enough for me. I recently came upon Joy Essential Oil, and that has made all the difference! I don't feel depressed or overwhelmed when I apply this on a daily basis. I apply 1-2 times a day the same as I apply oils for migraines. I love the smell of the Joy Essential Oil - when I breathe it in, it brings me a sense of security somehow.

A January 2008 article published in the Flavour and Fragrance Journal and co-authored by Weber State University Microbiologists Craig Oberg and Karen Nakaoka along with Young Living Director of Quality Control Lab Sue Chao and Young Living Founder Gary Young showed that essential oils may offer promise as an alternative therapy for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The study showed that 78 single essential oils inhibited MRSA with lemongrass, lemon myrtle, mountain savory, cinnamon and melissa essential oils having the highest levels of inhibition. The study further showed that 52 essential oil blends inhibited MRSA on some level with Young Living R.C. (a combination of myrtle, Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus australiana, Eucalyptus radiata, marjoram, pine, cypress, lavender, spruce, peppermint and Eucalyptus citriodora oils), Motivation (a combination of Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, spruce and lavender essential oils) and Longevity (a combination of frankincense, clove, orange and thyme essential oils) showing the most promise.

Additional exciting research on essential oils
PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) form the phospholipid membranes of almost every cell in the body and can be easily disrupted by free radicals. Karesh Youdim and his colleagues at the Scottish Agricultural College tested the ability of essential oils to preserve DHA levels in the brain of 100 animal subjects. They fed them a daily dose of thyme oil over the course of their lifetime, 28 months. The researchers achieved dramatic results. Thyme oil dramatically slowed age-related DHA and PUFA degradation in the brain. The essential oil of thyme was able to partially prevent brain aging through protection of essential fatty acids. An analysis of the data showed that the DHA levels in 28 month-old animals' brains was almost the same as that of 7 month-olds. In human terms, this was equivalent to an 80-year-old having the brain chemistry of a 20-year-old! Thyme essential oil also preserved levels of PUFAs in the animals' hearts, livers, and kidneys, while at the same time raising total antioxidant levels, including glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase.

European research suggests that helichrysum dilates the liver ducts and facilitates the release of toxins and poisons from the system.

A study at the University of Buenos Aires found that sandalwood essential oil inhibited the replication of Herpes Simplex viruses-1 and -2.

Exciting information on Lemongrass. This talks about the lemongrass herb but remember that Lemongrass essential oil is so much more powerful than the herb. Like 50 to 75 times more powerful.
Excerpt from article by Allison Kaplan Sommer
A drink with as little as one gram of lemongrass contains enough Citral to prompt cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube, according to Israeli research. At first, Benny Zabidov, an Israeli agriculturalist who grows greenhouses full of lush spices on a pastoral farm in Kfar Yedidya in the Sharon region, couldn't understand why so many cancer patients from around the country were showing up on his doorstep asking for fresh lemongrass. It turned out that their doctors had sent them.

It all began when researchers at Ben Gurion University of the Negev discovered last year that the lemon aroma in herbs like lemongrass kills cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. The research team was led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, incumbent of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiation and Malignant Diseases, from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at BGU. 

Citral is the key component that gives the lemony aroma and taste in several herbal plants such as lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), melissa (Melissa officinalis) and verbena (Verbena officinalis). According to Ofir, the study found that Citral causes cancer cells to "commit suicide: using apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death." A drink with as little as one gram of lemongrass contains enough Citral to prompt the cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube.

The BGU investigators checked the influence of the Citral on cancerous cells by adding them to both cancerous cells and normal cells that were grown in a petri dish. The quantity added in the concentrate was equivalent to the amount contained in a cup of regular tea using one gram of lemon herbs in hot water. While the citral killed the cancerous cells, the normal cells remained unharmed.

The findings were published in the scientific journal Planta Medica, which highlights research on alternative and herbal remedies. Shortly afterwards, the discovery was featured in the popular Israeli press.

Research on Sage essential oil
Researchers in Iran have conducted a clinical trial investigating the effects of sage leaf extract on hyperlipidemia. This condition consists of abnormally elevated levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, triglycerides and other factors that can lead to cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States with about 500,000 people dying from the disease each year. 

The study demonstrated some exciting potential wellness benefits of sage, with participants’ triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol dropping even as their HDL (good) cholesterol levels increased.

Research on Idaho Blue Spruce
Dr. HK Lin is a researcher who uses our essential oils. He was talking about the possibility of treating spinal cord damage and how profound this could be for people who are paralyzed. He laid out all the conditions that would be necessary in the body in order for nerve regeneration to even take place. Up until that point, nothing has even been found or created to help meet those conditions. Enter Young Living's Idaho Blue Spruce essential oil. Dr. Lin was excited to find out that this essential oil had the components necessary. Studies have been done on rats with spinal injuries and they have successfully regenerated the rats spinal cords!!

Healthy emotions have a lot to do with good health. Many notice that once they deal with emotional issues the physical issues oftentimes disappear.

Applying the Feelings Kit in Your Daily Life 
by David Stewart 

(Based primarily on notes taken on Gary Young's talk September 19, 2008, at the first Young Living European Convention, Vienna, Austria)

It has been said that when there is a conflict between reason and feeling, human beings will always side with feeling. According to Gary Young, "99% of life's decisions are made from feelings." Therefore, if you want your life to be guided by good decisions that lead to health, happiness, and fulfillment, you need to be aware of and in control of your present feelings and to learn how to release the repressed emotions of the past. 

Most of our feelings from day to day are not responses to current happenings. They originate from the programming in cellular memory that was imprinted by the emotional experiences of our past that we were unable to understand, process, and resolve at the time. 

These forgotten traumatic experiences function as live programming in our bodies, affecting every aspect of our lives and particularly in the area of how we make decisions. When our thoughts are limited by fears, lack of self-worth, and not feeling good enough for more or better, we make decisions that limit our success. Limited thinking leads to limited decisions that lead to a limited life far short of the God-given potential we actually possess.

By focusing on fixing your feelings, you can fix most aspects of your life--physical, mental, and spiritual. Essential oils are perfect vehicles to help you in this task because their molecules pass directly to the emotional brain and can bring us into contact with the issues we have long forgotten and enable us to deal with them and resolve them once and for all. When we clear our emotional baggage, we clear the way to manifest our true and highest potential. 

According to Gary Young, "Thought equals frequency. Essential oils absorb our thoughts. They are registered in the oils as intent. Intent is directed energy. When you apply an intent-energized oil on your feet they can saturate all of your cells within 60 seconds, stimulating creative thinking and pushing negative energy out of the cells, thus increasing the frequencies of the cells throughout the body. In that uplifted state you can create a new desire to be better tomorrow. You have no limitations but those you choose to accept."

Gary says, "Use the Feelings Kit. Apply feeling oils before work and every night before bed. Do this for 30 days and you will change your life." The Feelings Kit,  contains six oil blends: Valor, Harmony, Forgiveness, Release, Present Time, and Inner Child. 

Here is how Gary instructed us to use them at the Vienna Convention:

Put Valor Oil on the soles of both feet at nighttime along with Highest Potential Blend. These blends are effective to erase limited thinking. Valor balances and equalizes the body's energies thereby increasing oxygen intake to the pineal gland, the seat of our higher intelligence and intuitive faculties. You will wake up in the morning more self assured and more alive to start the day.

Massage one drop of Harmony Oil on each of the energy center points of your body. There are seven of them along the spine: Coccyx, Sacrum, Lumbar, Dorsal (heart), Cervical (where neck meets shoulders), and Medulla (hollow place at center base of skull), and Pineal (center of forehead). You can also massage Harmony on the crown of the head. Harmony balances the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems which, in turn, gives us progressive creativity and feelings of confidence. "The biggest sin is not having confidence in yourself," says Gary, "He who lacks confidence lacks life."

Apply Forgiveness Oil around the navel with the right hand going clockwise several times and think of situations where you need to forgive yourself or others. We beat up on ourselves, but everyone makes mistakes. Yet we struggle to forgive our own mistakes and those of others. Unforgiveness is one of the most common roots of physical, mental, and spiritual disease. Unforgiveness does not make the offending party sick. It makes us sick. Forgiveness is for our own benefit. It is accomplished in five steps. (1) Forgive yourself for allowing the person to affect your health and happiness. (2) Forgive the other person for any harm he or she may have caused you. (This need not be done directly with the person being forgiven, but is an inner adjustment on your part.) (3) Give the other person permission to forgive you. (4) See the good in the situation. (5) Be thankful for the experience and the lesson it taught you. Inhale and apply Forgiveness Oil while going through these steps and repeat as often as necessary to clear the feelings of unforgiveness.

Negative energy goes into the blood and then into the liver for cleansing where the toxins can remain trapped. Thus, the liver becomes a storage place for anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, addictions, and a host of destructive feelings. Apply a few drops of Release Oil on your tongue to release the poisons of stored emotions from the liver. Rub Release over the liver area. Drink lots of pure water and do a liver cleanse.

When we live in the past or dwell on the future, we are not being productive in the present. Energize three drops of Present Time by making clockwise circles on the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply it to your thymus (the gland just under your sternum or breastbone). Besides keeping you focused on the tasks of today, this can also help you financially by increasing your abundance consciousness in the present.

"When you are a child all things are possible. There are no limitations," says Gary Young. "When you find your inner child, you have found your true self. The child in you is your creativity." Apply one drop of Inner Child onto the pad of your thumb and then place your thumb onto the roof of your mouth. This opens the cranial sutures and stimulates the pineal, pituitary, and other organs of the emotional brain that occupy the space just above the roof of your mouth. Walking backwards while you have your thumb in your mouth looks stupid but it changes the rotation in the pelvis, elongating the spine, and decompressing the discs in your back. Thus, you can clear the nerve channels for energy to flow smoothly throughout your brain and body.

In conclusion, Gary said, "Use the Feelings Kit morning and night for 30 days. You will feel enthusiastic. Your life will be full of excitement. And people will be drawn to you like a magnet."

Great for bone, joint discomfort and tissue regeneration, Magic Relief has been used for many things.

I made it for myself when I tore the muscles and ligaments in my shoulder and was told that my hip joints were wearing out. My Grandmother had hip replacement surgery and she said if you don’t have to go through that, don’t.

At night I could not lay on my sides as my hip would start aching and hurting clear down my leg. Since I made the Magic Relief I no longer have had problems sleeping on my sides at night and this has been eight years since I made this blend and started using it.

My shoulder had healed wrong because I didn’t go to a doctor until 6 months later. I could not lift my arm let alone carry anything. I now have full use of my arm and can carry any amount of heavy objects.

This blend has been used to:
- fill a hole in, that had been eaten almost through by a virus in the bone of a finger when antibiotics wouldn’t work.
- Stiff neck problems, arthritic, along with Frankincense for cancer and chemo side effects.
- To assist in a the transition of death, making the pass-over peaceful and easing the pain of cancer.
- When in doubt use it for anything, it is great!
