Addison's disease and essential oils

I came across Joanne's inspiring story on the Everything Essentials FB group today:
I have been having a reoccurence of Addison's disease. I am no longer experiencing pain in my adrenal glands and I believe the brown spots are lightening. I am taking Zendocrine for this.
In Tune has made me more alert, no more naps, and I believe I had ADHD, and I focus so much better. I also get good sleep at night with Serenity and Balance.
I lost 10 lbs by just taking the Slim & Sassy Oils, so far in about 2 mos-6 weeks.
I am also losing allergies, and no more asthma attacks. I will continue on with the Candida program until all allergies and symptoms are gone.
Update (October 3, 2013)
Success story - adrenal fatigue / Addison's disease: Zendocrine taken internally, and Frankincense and basil oils rubbed on my adrenal areas (above kidneys) have helped heal. Now when I take GX Assist, I do not have any die off symptoms such as fatigue and diarrhea. I can now take the Life Long Vitality supplements (LLV) and GX Assist to help heal the candida in my body. Also I put frankincense and In Tune on my thyroid, because the thyroid controls all the glands in the body. Also the adrenal soup recipe in under Adrenal helped greatly, I made a whole pot of it, and it tastes wonderful, with the honey in it. I felt such relief after taking the soup. 
dōTERRA's Zendocrine essential oil blend is a proprietary blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils of Clove, Grapefruit, Rosemary, and Geranium that have been studied for support of the cleansing organs of the body with a focus on the liver.

The adrenal recovery soup recipe:
This high-energy soup, called “Taz,” comes from Dolores S. Downey's “Balancing body chemistry with nutrition” seminars.

Adrenal Recovery Soup
  16 oz. green beans
  1 cup chopped celery
  1 zucchini, sliced
  1 medium onion, chopped
  1 cup tomato juice
  1 cup spring water
  2 tbsp. raw honey
  1 tsp. paprika
  1 cup chicken broth

  1. there is no recovery from Addisons disease, once you have it you have it and need steroids forever. You must have had another issues, please reword your page because if someone with Addisons tried this they would die, do you want this on your hands? My 2 boys have it so I know all there is about this deadly disease. Adrenal fatigue is not real either unless its seen as the beginning of the real Addisons disease. Thank you
