Allow me to introduce myself. My Name is Paula and I’m here to talk to you about Young Living Essential Oils. Let me first start with my story, in January of 2011 I injured my back; after countless months of physical therapy and many visits to my family physician it was decided I needed to see a specialist. In October of 2011 I was seeing a Neurosurgeon and by November 2011 I was having surgery on my back… I had herniation in 3 levels from L3 down to S1. It was decided between myself and my Neurosurgeon that most of my issue’s were thought to be coming from the L5/S1 level and it was best if we fused those 2 vertebra’s together and leave the L3/L4 & L4/L5 area’s alone. Several weeks past after surgery and some improvement ensued however, the end result was much the same as it was before the surgery. The surgery was a failure. 😦 Fast Forwarding to September 8th, 2014… This is the day that changed my life forever! I had gone to visit my cousin this day and during my visit my back decided it was going to give me all sorts of grief… My cousin noticed I had been rubbing my low back off and on and asked the obvious question.. “Is your back bothering you?” of course at this time my answer was yes but it was purely normal for me and I would get through it…. Her next words are what changed me forever… she said “Get up, turn around, and lift your shirt!” While those words most often would be mistaken for something not so innocent they were purely innocent this day. I obliged her while she grabbed her bag of “voodoo” as I thought of them at that time…. My mind was snidely saying “Oh Boy here we go, she’s gonna slather me up with these oils and I’m going to miraculously feel better!” Well I’m here to tell you it didn’t at least not right away anyways… she put the oils on waited a half hour and then asked me “How’s the back feel?” it was then I gave her the deer in the headlights look and I said “Better! It’s still a bit sore but nothing like it was!” She smiled and said “Good! Stand up let’s do it again!” So we did it again, again we waited a half hour and she asked me again “How’s the back feel?!” It was then I was humbled and bewildered. I was able to function with very little pain and folks I didn’t hit my prescription pain meds to achieve this. I was beyond ecstatic for the first time in 4 years I was able to function after having horrible back spasms without taking my prescription meds! I’ve never been a fan of my prescription meds because I always got headaches from them or I couldn’t sleep so I always felt like it was a double edged sword when I would take them which meant I either dealt with the pain in my back or I dealt with the side effects of the prescribed drugs I was using…. I didn’t like either option but I more often then not chose to just deal with my pain then take the drugs at least til this day! For the first time in as I said 4 years I had minimal tolerable pain and I hadn’t popped a pill.. Praise God Hallelujah! Now don’t mistake this for being sold on the oils right then and there, while it’s true my pain had disappeared like many of you, I was like “uhhh yeah sure this stuff works.” My cousin could see my bits of doubt yet so she sent me home with some little vials of the exact oils she used on me, told me where to use it, then told me to wait to see if I had the same results again later when my back flared up again.. I obliged her (Heck why wouldn’t I my back felt pretty good at this point!” LOL) a short time after my arrival home my back had returned to its state before I was oiled up… to my surprise in 2 applications again my back was in a tolerable state again. That’s when I knew these oils for me! I attended an event put on by my upline just a couple of weeks later and signed on… Young living has changed my life forever and I really want to help change yours too!
