I’ve been using and sharing doTERRA for about four months now. One of the first people I spoke to about doTERRA was my friend, Lindsey. She came to my first class and the next. And she’ll likely be at the Tricks and Treats class this Thursday at my office! Lindsey, age 29, has had such success using the oils that she agreed to let me ask her a few questions about her experience so I could share it here.
E. “So, Lindsey what health challenges did you have before you started using doTERRA?”
Lindsey: “Chronic back pain, an inability to fall asleep / sleeplessness and some anxiety.”
E. “What have you tried in the past before doTERRA?”
Lindsey: “I’ve tried everything! For the back: a physical therapist, chiropractor, masseuse, orthopedic surgeon. On my own, I tried IcyHot, Bengay, yoga, swimming. And nothing was working. And with the sleeplessness. I was on prescriptions medications. I’ve tried changing my diet, meditation. I just couldn’t fall asleep. I would just stay awake.”
E: “So, then you tried Deep Blue Rub for your back. How did you start using it and when you started noticing a difference?”
Lindsey: “I’d put it on my back in the morning before I went to work. What I like about Deep Blue is that it warms up a little in the moment but later, it’ll re-warm itself. I notice that when I’m running too. I put it on after I run, on my lower back and on my legs.”
E: “Thinking abut your activity level, what do you think is different from before you started using Deep Blue?”
Lindsey: “When I was seeing the orthopedist and taking all these prescriptions, I couldn’t even walk my dog. I would go to work, come home and lay on my floor. It (back) was just so tight that I couldn’t walk him. Now, I can walk my dog. I can run which is huge for me!”
E: “Thinking about the sleeplessness. The challenge has always been falling asleep, not staying asleep. Whats different now?”
Lindsey: “Yes, I’d gone days without sleep before. 3 days sometimes. So the quality of sleep is a huge difference now. I feel like a baby! Now, I put Serenity blend in the diffuser before bed. I set the timer for maybe 30 minutes and I’m asleep before 30 minutes ends. Sometimes at super stressful times, I might do lavender on my pillow before I turn the diffuser on.”
E: “What’s next for you?”
Lindsey: “Lifelong Vitality Pack because I want to get more a sense of overall wellbeing. I do want to experiment with the mood boosters, like Elevation.”
E. “What do you like best about using doTERRA?”
Lindsey: “I was on prescription medications for my back and sleeplessness, anything from narcotics to antidepressants. That is partially why I tried doTERRA. I had tried everything and I was at the point of accepting that I wouldn’t sleep and I would have constant back pain. I hated the amount of drugs I was putting into my body, that didn’t actually help and had serious side effects. What I like doTERRA because it’s all natural. I can feel good about putting it on my body, even ingesting it (lavender, lemon etc.) without side effects and they make my body feel cleaner and healthier.”
