Chronic fatigue syndrome and essential oils

Ann's story from Jana Tzinberg's blog:
I have battled CFS for a few years and I was at the point where I thought nothing was going to help me. I had a doctor that put me on so many medications I had to label each bottle with how and when to take them. After a while I realized I wasn’t getting better and that is when I started doing some research on my own. I found out about doTERRA through a friend who lives in Utah and she gave me some samples of a few of the essential oils. The three I love are On Guard, Basil and Peppermint. I use them topically and I also diffuse them in my home. Since I have been using them I have noticed a difference in my condition. I think because I have something to look forward to, I am getting better. The smells of these oils just brighten my day now. And because I can wear them on my skin like a cologne I get the benefits of them for hours. If you have a health issue that leaves you with low energy I would definitely try these oils.

Gin's recommendations for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:

The following recommendations for chronic fatigue syndrome worked for Gin.
  • First  10 days of GX Assist, followed by PB Assist (finish the bottle).
  • Drink minimum 2 quarts water daily minimum. Add lemon oil (start with a couple drops, don’t add to every glass in the beginning. We don’t want to throw you into major detox).
  • Reduce the amount of  GX Assist, if having a strong reaction (i.e., itchy rash, abdominal pain, etc.)
  • Gin recommends starting GX Assist right before the weekend (e.g., Friday, right after work)  to keep your body time to adjust. Plan on a low key weekend at home.
  • After the above is finished start Lifelong Vitality Pack (LLV). Cut LLV dose in ½, if you have a healing reaction and attempt increase again after 1 month.
  • Gin recommends not using Slim and Sassy until after you have been on LLV full dose for a month.
For pain:
  • Frankincense, followed by Deep Blue Rub for pain, as needed.
Temporary energy boost:
  • Put about 5 drops of peppermint into the hand then pull the palm across the back of the neck just below the hairline, and spent a couple minutes massaging the oil in. Work it from side to side, and then pull the palm up the back of the head, half way to the crown of the head. Repeat hourly or more frequently, if necessary.
For emotions / depression:
  • Balance on wrists daily (repeat as needed).
  •  She also suggests Elevation to help with emotions.
For deep healing:
  • Frankincense on bottom of feet, twice a day.
To help with sleep:
  • Lavender on bottom of feet before bed. If you wake up in the middle of the night reapply Lavender or Balance.
Recommended Diet (according to Gin):
  • No white flour, no white rice, no white potatoes.
  • No sugar (any kind). No artificial sweeteners. Can use Stevia. Limited occasional amounts of agave syrup. 
  • 100% whole wheat or whole grains are fine. 
  • Brown rice, sweet potatoes, oats, and corn are fine. 
  • Watch labels, look at ingredients not nutritional content. 
  • Use organic and fresh as much as possible.
If you have a limited budget and can only afford one thing, Gin highly recommends the Life Long Vitality supplements, if at all possible.
