Type 1 Diabetes and essential oil
From Everyday in Every way
I have type 1 diabetes and occasionally have really high blood sugar. Before doTERRA cinnamon i would suffer about 12-24 hrs trying to get my sugar back in normal range. Now i use one drop of cinnamon oil on each foot and i am normal with in an 1-3 hrs. This is literally a life saver for me!Janyce's story about Type 1 Diabetes
I know a lady who was diagnosed a few years ago (as an adult in 50s) with Type 1 Diabetes. She has been using Life Long Vitality supplements for over 2 years with great results. She loves it, her doctor says, "keep doing what you are doing." She is also using Coriander, Lemon, Oregano, Slim & Sassy and now for the past 4 months, DDR Prime.
Type 2 Diabetes and essential oils
A powerful testimonial from Our doTERRA Oil Experience about an individual with Type 2 diabetes:
Al's StorydōTerra has changed my life and my life's expectancy! In May of 2012, my insurance ran out and I could no longer afford insulin for my diabetes. Being 350 lbs wasn't helping, either! My brother and sister-in-law (Steve and Kristine Hales) made up a 'concoction' of essential oils -3 drops Coriander + 1 drop Oregano + 3 drops Slim & Sassy- Within three days, my blood sugars were regulated! It's been eight months with no insulin injections and controlled blood sugars! AND in those same eight months, as of 12-4-2012, I have lost 81 lbs! The oils (Slim & Sassy in particular) helped curb my appetite and I even lost my choclaholic tendencies! I simply am not as hungry and I don't crave, anywhere near, the sugars that I was wanton for. dōTerra worked for me! I am a success story (not to gloat) who is alive and feeling so much more healthy and alive than I have been in many years.
From Essentially Living
My story begins 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetesRead the entire story here.
and lived with being over weight and having a pretty sluggish feeling all
the time because of the medications that I was on to control my blood
It was not until I met Dr. Hill at an introductory to Oils event at our
Herbs for Health Store that I asked Dr. Hill what he had to help with
my diabetes and he shared with me a recipe of taking 3 drops of basil 3
drops of lemon and 1 drop of oregano. He also recommended doTERRA's Lifelong
Vitality Pack and use of Balance oil on the feet in the morning and
lavender at night.
I can't tell you how this protocol has changed my life over the past
several years, I saw my blood sugars go from the 400 range and dangerously
peaking into the 500 range to balancing in the low 100 range within 3 days.
Still two years later I have maintained in the low 100 range.
I have lost a total of 100 lbs over the 2 years and have maintained my
current weight for 10 months now.
Since Coriander came on the line for doTERRA and the intro of Slim & Sassy, I have change my oils to:
3 drops coriander
3 Slim & Sassy
1 drop of Oregano
2 times daily morning and evening
From Stay at Home Dr. Mom:
When I started with doTERRA almost a year ago & began taking the LifeLong Wellness supplements [now called Life Long Vitality supplements], I was on medication for type 2 Diabetes. I was taking Actos & my A1C level was 6.3. (The A1C is a blood test that measures blood sugars over a 3 month period. Normal is below 6.0) I also added 5 drops of Basil in a capsule & when Coriander became available, I added 5 drops of that with the Basil. My A1C has dropped to 5.7 & I am off of the medication!!From Everyday in Every way
My Mom was borderline diabetic and she started rubbing cinnamon oil on the arches of her feet each day for a month. Her blood glucose level dropped 40 points and as a side benefit she's had no diverticulitis flair ups.
I am using the cinnamon bark in the diabetes blend from the Modern Essentials book for my husband's diabetes. He is a hard customer to believe in the oils. After approximately 4 days of this blend his sugar levels have gone from 292 down to 210. This is very important as it will hopefully keep him off insulin. I use it on the bottom of each foot (in center) and on the pancreas on his tummy every night and then just the tummy in the morning.
From Diary of a doTERRA Skeptic
... (There's an individual) with diabetes that has such severe neuropathy that he hadn't felt his feet in years. After hearing some of the presentations about how great DDR Prime is, he decided he wanted to try some. After three weeks, he came back to Emily and told her that he felt different but he wasn't exactly sure how to describe it; she told him to keep taking the DDR Prime and to come tell her when he could say exactly how he felt different. Six weeks after starting, he came back to tell her that he had full feeling in both of his feet again!

From doTERRA Diamond Club
I've been doing three drops coriander, three drops slim & sassy and one drop oregano 3x day in a capsule, it usually brings my sugar down from 160-170 down to 110-114. Plus I got my oral meds down from 3 tablets a day to two a day. - Kathy.
Visit today to endocrinologist and my A1C dropped from 5.7 to 5.5 with the addition of 1 month of EO's (4 drops of Coriander, 2 drops of Basil, 2 drops of OnGuard and 1 drop of Cinnamon in 1 capsule 2 times per day) to my regular regimen of Metformin and Bydureon.
My mother in-law took cinnamon in her drink in am and the Life Long Vitality supplements for one and a half month and her endocrinologist took her off her metformin.Jeanie`s story
My aunt (Type 2) has been taking On Guard beadlets and rubbing lavender on her pancreas daily. Almost a 100point difference on her sugar levels. She literally takes one beadlet 15 minutes before doing the blood sugar test. her levels are better than ever and no problems all day.
Recommendations for Diabetes
- A recent clinical study demonstrated that the Lifelong Vitality supplements decrease insulin levels. Read more about the study here.
- Read Everything Essentials' suggestions for essential oils protocols for diabetes here.
- An informative info sheet about essential oil recommendations for diabetes here and here.
- Read also this great article about diabetes and essential oils here.
- Slim & Sassy oil blend is great for balancing metabolism.
- rub Balance on the feet in the morning;
- take 8-10 drops of Coriander and/or Basil in a capsule during the day to balance blood sugar levels (note, I read that coriander essential oil acts like insulin on a cellular level. What this means is that it helps drive the glucose into the cell where it can be used, thus lowering blood sugar levels);
- consider 2 drops of On Guard in the above capsule as well; and
- rub Lavender on the feet at night.
Another protocol is to combine 2 drops cinnamon and 5 drops of cypress and rub on feet and pancreas.
Many people have reported success with balancing their insulin levels by using the very potent and effective, digestive enzyme, Terrazyme.
For those that are Pre-diabetic or simply want to manage their insulin levels, weight management, exercise and Basil, Coriander and/or OnGuard essential oils in a veggie capsule can help.
Additionally, doing a cleanse using the Zendocrine essential oil blend and capsules can be very beneficial.
