Natural and effective treatments that I swear by

I have always been one to gravitate towards more natural options. When I had serious stomach issues, I was thrown from one doctor to the next who just kept putting me on prescription pills, which gave me horrible side effects, which I needed more prescriptions to fix. Such a mess. Finally after a year of feeling deathly ill with no end in sight, I demanded a gall bladder test. My instincts were right. My gall bladder wasn't even functioning by that point and my stomach lining was bright red with holes from the onslaught of unprocessed acid.  After gall bladder surgery I still wasn't feeling well so I finally went to a homeopathic specialist for $20. She did some kind of test with a copper pen hooked to a computer that read the weaknesses in my system. $100 of natural supplements and strict schedule of when to take them was what I left with. Within a month I was healed.

Fast forward about 8 years later. I had gastritis. I went to one doctor, he put me on a prescription. I said screw that, and went to a reflexologist that a friend recommended. She read the weaknesses in my feet by pushing a pencil eraser onto my reflex points in my feet (if it hurts, it's a weakness) sent me home with a bunch of herbal drops and supplements and a schedule. Once again, healed.

So you can see that I firmly believe in using what the earth has given us because it has worked for me countless times.

About four years ago my friend told me about Doterra. At the time I had just had a baby and he had eczema on his face and seemed to always be constipated. I decided to try the oils and bought the Family Physicians Kit. I applied lavender and melaleuca diluted with olive oil on Sawyers eczema and within a week it was gone and has never returned. For his constipation, I used DigestZen diluted with olive oil and rubbed it on his belly. Within five minutes he would have a nice poo. Amazing.

I started to use Elevate along with my Prozac. I was terrified to go off of it because I had tried that before and it just never worked. Before long I added Balance to the equation and finally felt daring enough to go off my Prozac. I haven't been on it since. As long as I use the oils every single day, I don't need it.

The same goes for my ADHD. Doterra came out with a blend called In Tune, which I use every day.
I used to use Strattera which worked well but it made me light headed at times, so I tried Adderall which quickly landed me in the ER with heart attack symptoms. No thanks.

My regimen is this:
Each morning after I get out of the shower I rub Serentiy, Balance, Elevate, In Tune and Wild Orange on the bottoms of my feet. Only a couple drops of each is needed. I use it throughout the day if needed, rubbing it on the back of my neck or using a diffuser for aromatherapy.

Why we don't go to church.

A few weeks ago I mentioned to Jarrod how funny it is that as people get older their vibrato slows way down. So we've been singing like that just about every day and of course trying to outdo one another. "Ha ha ha!!! Okay, my turn..."
Sunday we went to a friends sons missionary farewell and got to put our hard practice into action. Well, Jarrod did. I was laughing too hard.
