Inflammatory bowel disease and essential oils

Stories of individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and their experiences with doTERRA essential oils....

Crohn's disease 
[My daughter]  has suffered for many years from ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease... She ended up in the hospital and they recommended resectioning her bowels along with removal of multiple polyps. She had ulcers, polyps, and blockages in her intestines...
I immediately started her on the Lifelong Vitality Pack and the essential oils protocol recommended to me by Dr. Hill. Today she had a colonoscopy so that they could determine what surgery was needed exactly and what they were going to do. When the doctor came out of her colonoscopy, he said he could not believe it was the same colon. What they had determined was severe before was now mild to moderate. While there are still some lesions, the blockages are gone, the polyps are gone, and most of the ulcers. There is no other thing that she has done except the oils. She weaned herself off prednisone immediately upon returning home. We were very diligent over the last three months to make sure we follow Dr. Hill's advice to the "T." there will be no surgery." -Charly
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease twelve years ago. I ran the medical course of pharmaceutical drugs and interventions, including steroids, immune-suppressants and ultimately two surgeries. After my most recent surgery, I was pronounced Crohn’s free. However, I continued to have cramping pain daily. It was debilitating and depressing and I was at my wit’s end. So I decided to try oils. To say I was a skeptic is putting it mildly. I began a regimen of 5 drops DigestZen and 5 drops of Peppermint in a capsule every day. Later, I added Frankincense to my capsule and began putting Peppermint in my water at least 3 times a day. The transformation was amazing. I was cramp-free within a week. - M.

I went critical with Crohn's 4 years ago. In the hosp more than I was home it seemed for over a year and a half. Then 2 years ago I was introduced to Univera's aloe based products. My life was literally (not figuratively) given back to me. I have added doTERRA and I am healthier and happier than I have ever been in my life. I strong suggest that he take DigestZen religiously. I go thru 2 bottle per month (internally and topically).  He needs to ingest quality aloe vera products (such as Univera) as soon as possible. He needs to heal the gut. Aloe will increase the collagen level within the lining of the GI tract thus facilitating it to heal. - Jan

I have a coworker who has Crohn's. She's had surgery for it, and she still gets a lot of abdominal pain. I gave her some DigestZen to try and she said it really helped ease the cramping. She's been rubbing it on her abdomen as needed with carrier oil. (I diluted it for her because I wasn't sure how sensitive she was). - Lisa

I also use DigestZen very heavily, I do DDR prime caps every day, the life long vitality pack everyday, ginger for when I get upset tummy, frankincense 2 drops under tongue 2x a day, lemon in my water to keep it cleansed. I do the PB assist every day and a deep cleanse every 3 months. I use citrus bliss for depression and anxiety and just apply like perfume when I need it. for flairs I do 3 drops oregano in a cap 2x a day for a month. I use a lot of peppermint for inflammation. I am still trying to find a good routine that works for me that isn't to hard on my body or too complicated. I had c-diff and with the Crohn's, the meds were fighting each other and not working at all. I was in the hospital more than not for 2 years, and almost died 4 times. The oregano finally got rid of it. That is how I found doTERRA oils. I had multiple treatments, thousands of dollars a month in medications, at least 3 different doctors appointments each week and just dying. I did oregano and in 3 months I was cleared of c-diff and it hasn't come back and that was a year ago. I am off almost all my medications. - Heather

I have Crohn's disease and recently decided to stop my Remicade treatments. The doctor was against it but I knew it was the right thing for me. I started using oils about two months ago and I'm feeling better all the time!! I use DigestZen, Rosemary and Frankincense the most. I also added the Lifelong Vitality supplements from doTerra, an aloe powder, and made exercising/stress management a priority. I have avoided gluten and corn products for years. I do think the oils are fantastic but it does take the hydration, nutrition and stress management as well for the best results. - Laurel

A woman who had Crohn’s for over 20 years uses a capsule with 3 drops of DigestZen and 3 drops of Frankincense and then fills the capsule the rest of the way with Virgin Coconut oil.

Ulcerative Colitis
I have Ulceritive Colitis and I am using the oils to avoid taking medication right now. I have been off for about a month and so far so good. Just taking it a day at a time. I take the Lifelong Vitality supplements, Terrazyme  (a digestize enzyme) and a probiotic and then I take DigestZen almost every time I eat. I also take two drops of frankincense with my DigestZen morning and night with the Lifelong Vitality supplements. Then I use peppermint and thyme when I have stomach problems (which I have not had to use much once I was over my last flair up). - Carolyn

By using DigestZen daily, my mom has found relief from colitis that had her using Prilosec, a probiotic and Imodium daily and not eating if she had to go out the next day.- Jaime

My niece has her colitis under control with DigestZen. She puts 1-2 drops on the lower right abdomen every day and said it hasn't been this under control for years. - Sara

I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and fennel oil helped immensely. (Source)

My friend,  Jaime, had a client with ulcerative colitis who did a parasite cleanse using doTERRA oils, GX Assist and PB Assist, released 9 different parasites and then ceased to have any colitis symptoms. - Janice

I had ulcerated colitis since my early 20's, started using 1 drop of frankincense under tongue everyday and increased to 3 drops everyday, after 4 days, no longer had symptoms and have not had any flare-ups since in over a year. I am now 65 yrs old, so I had been suffering for many years. I use the Lifelong Vitality supplements as well, and now use the DDR Prime as well. No steroids- Linda

Irritable bowel syndrome
Regarding a GX Assist / PB Assist cleanse -- my mother lost 15 lbs post cleanse because she has Hepatitis C and her body started to let go of all the stuff she had stored....it helped heal her IBS too....gotta love the cleanse....her bloat totally went away...2 months post cleanse she has lost 25 lbs - Shannon.

I had IBS ever since I can remember, and when I started doing the GX Assist / PB Assist cleanses, I started feeling better, and after about 3 rounds of the GX Assist and PB Assist I noticed that the foods that used to bother me, no longer did.  I did 5 drops of the Zendocrine oil under my tongue during the cleanse. I still do a couple cleanses a year, and I do the 5 drops Zendocrine oil daily and I take one PB Assist daily. It has done wonders for me.

Since than I have done the GX Assist cleanse several times. Each time it gets easier and longer days on the GX Assist.- Ruth

I have chronic constipation and IBS. Mine is under control by DigestZen, TerraZyme and the Lifelong Vitality supplements. I do drink water all day long and take Zendocrine caps 2x daily. Also, use cypress on the rectum reflex point on my feet daily and cypress + geranium directly on the rectum when hemorrhoids are in a flare up.  - Gayle

Digestzen has stopped my IBS attacks within a couple of minutes of rubbing around my naval. I've never had anything stop them before and have always had to ride them out.  - Linda

Unfortunately, have IBS. Digestzen has made a huge difference in helping it. I use it in capsules daily, since I don't have the gel caps, and I also rub it on my belly if I'm having a particularly bad day. It's been the only thing that has helped, even after making diet changes.

Digestive disorder
I have been dealing with a DIGESTIVE disorder for some time now & have spent days not wanting to leave the house because I was afraid to be away from the bathroom!!  The doctors cannot realy say what my problem is but I am sure it has been a bacterial inflammation going on.  Almost 3 weeks ago now I started a protocol of oils for 21 days that has been absolutely  a Godsend!!  I took 4 drops each of Oregano, lemon, & On Guard in a capsule 3 times a day.  By the second day I was feeling such a relief & am now completely sympton free!! I was told that I could also use the Melaleuca in place of the Lemon, which I will do if the symptons come back. - Elaine
