My name is Sheri and I am an essential oil (EO) addict. The journey to becoming an EO enthusiast started because I had Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and had been told I needed a kidney transplant. EO was brought to me by my step-daughter. She had personally seen the amazing results from her friends and family using EOs. At first I was skeptical, I thought because I had all of the high powered nephrologists swarming over me, that they probably knew a little bit more about my condition. Because my kidney’s were not filtrating very well, I was susceptible to continue bouts of gout. As my kidney’s continued to decline my bouts with gout increased. Two month’s before my transplant, my gout attacks had become a daily, excruciating bit of reality. One day, I was at work, I had an attack just as I was getting off work. To get home, I had to steer my car with my elbows, my hands hurt so bad. The only thing I could do was go home, crawl in bed and try not to move, it hurt so bad. I was at my wits end. My doctor had been giving me gout medication, but it didn’t stop the frequency nor severity of my gout attacks. Desperate I contacted my step-daughter and asked her what EOs she should have for gout. Her answer was so simple, “Lemon Oil”. I immediately began taking five drops in my water every morning. On the very first day, my gout attacks stopped. After two weeks, I thought I was over the attacks, so I didn’t take the oil. What a mistake, before I was half way through my day, I had another gout attack. I immediately resumed taking the lemon oil and did not have another attack. Since then, I have had a successful kidney transplant and no longer have gout issues.
I became a Wellness Advocate because I believe in a natural way to be healthy. Having had a transplant, my body is loaded with all of the anti-rejection medication, I find that EOs help treat my normal everyday symptoms. As I aged, I developed a bunion on my foot. Guess what, Cypress EO is recommended for bunions and it works great! My bunion has been tamed, something I never thought would happen prior to becoming involved with Essential Oils. I’ve also suffered years with nighttime leg cramps but once I discovered Lemongrass and Peppermint EO, I can control them. I’ve used EOs on my husband, on my mother and on my son with amazing results. EOs are our preferred method of treatment for our medical needs. Now, not only am I an oil addict, but my whole family is too.–Sheri Hubbard Join Sheri’s team here
