It feels like it’s time for an update.
Moses is doing well. Really well. No more abscesses (which as you know was a huge source of stress for our family last year). His skin is really clear. Emotionally, he’s doing well. DH is completely on board with the essential oils. It feels so good that we both agree on Moses’ treatment at the moment. A huge source of stress is gone from our lives.
That said, Moses has had a couple of bouts of illness in the last little while. He had strep throat a few weeks ago, but he recovered quickly and easily. Only missed two days of school.
We had a quick trip to the ER a couple of weeks ago. I think it was a healing reaction to frankincense that I put on his chest. Moses came home from school and was having a difficult time breathing and I put frankincense on his chest. Later that night, he threw up globs of mucous (which I think is a good sign) — I think the oils have been releasing and bringing up phlegm from his system, but Moses doesn’t know to spit it out, so he just swallows it all. (I actually found when I started using the oils, I was also bringing up phlegm myself, and I didn’t even realize that I had a mucous problem). He was still having difficulty breathing after he brought up the mucous, so we brought him to the ER. By the time he saw the triage nurse, he only had a slight wheeze, and by the time he saw the doctor, he was not wheezing at all. They sent us home without any treatment. Yay! I should also mention that I started doing the Healing Code when we were in the waiting room, and I think that really helped too. I will share more about the Healing Code soon!
So basically, many things have resolved for Moses, except he still has congestion in his lungs. I am hopeful that with time, the oils will help Moses’ lungs. I’ve read time and time again that they have helped others with asthma and respiratory problems. In fact, a friend’s dad who had chronic bronchitis now hardly needs to use an oxygen tank to breathe as a result of using the oils. I have faith that I will find the right combination of oils that will help Moses. I just need to be patient (which truthfully, is not my strongest quality).
Starting today, I’m going to change the oils that I’m using on Moses. (This post describes what we were doing up until now, and I feel that it has been very helpful at keeping the MRSA infections in check).
This is our new essential oil protocol (focuses more on healing his allergies, and I actually had a dream a few weeks ago to start using the allergy trio on him).
- Morning: lemon (natural antibiotic), peppermint (good for his lungs) and lavender (calming to his system) (together, these oils are considered the allergy trio, and I have found that they completely eliminate my own allergic symptoms to dogs and cats, which is actually pretty amazing considering that I am VERY allergic to animal dander).
- Evening: peppermint (good for lungs), melaleuca (natural antibiotic) and frankincense (so healing, good for so many things).
Just one drop of each, rubbed on the bottom of his feet. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Yesterday, I received a couple of recommendations, which I’m considering.
A friend of mine is very enthusiastic about the oils at Native American Nutritionals. I talked to the owner and he made some suggestions for Moses (Defense, black cumin oil, Rejuvenate and Breathe EZ). My friend thought the DNA Repair may also be helpful considering that Moses has a genetic disorder. DH isn’t interested in trying anything new right now, so I don’t think I’m going to change anything at the moment, but it’s something that I’m considering.
Also, a healer whose opinion I really trust recommended a karmic healer. Something else for us to consider. I’m interested, but DH is not.
As always, I’ll let you know how things continue to unfold for our family.
