My mother has CRPS which is very painful, there is no cure, and most doctors don’t even know what it is. She can’t take pain pills, they make her ill and unable to function. She lives in pain 24/7, at times it can be completely debilitating and she can be bed ridden for weeks.
It is hard to watch someone endure this much pain especially when it is your mother. I have prayed and cried out to God for something to help her. When we moved out to our farm and started our business, I started playing with essential oils and a passion for these oils and what they could do for us began to grow. I had no idea that God was leading me to be His tool to help her find some relief.
My mother has seen many benefits from the oil blend such as relief of inflammation, tightness loosening, increase in circulation, pain relief, muscle spasms lessening, and she is beginning to be able to move her arm and just a few days ago she has stopped waking up with headaches.
My mother’s testimony is below. It was written on 01/12/2012. She started using our Aleipho essential oil blend on December 28th.
To Him be the Glory!
update 2/20/16: Recently (10/15), I decided to add our Aleipho blend to our spray-on skin conditioners which really helps people with Fibromyalgia get the oils all over their areas of pain. My mother, 2 girls and I were going out of town, so I made up a bottle for her. I don’t know why I did, except that God put it on my mind to make her one to take with us. We were in Pennsylvania checking out the Llamas; she was taking some pictures and fell over a concrete turtle. The leg that has the CRPS in it swelled up with a knot the size of an orange. I thought we were going to have to go to the hospital or home, and at the very best, she would have to stay in the room because she wouldn’t feel like walking. I was very worried about what this fall was going to do to her.
She had the spray-on bottle of Aleipho, I had made her, in her purse. She sprayed it on the huge bulge and within minutes it was gone! We were all amazed! She was walking just fine, didn’t want to go home and had a great time on the rest of our vacation.
I have suffered from CRPS for almost 4 years. CRPS is a very little understood pain syndrome. The pain is excruciating and unrelenting for long periods of time. I was afflicted with CRPS due to a minor fracture of my left foot. It took over a month for the signs of CRPS to present themselves, because evidently that is one of its’ characteristics.
Once the pain started, it became so bad, I couldn’t walk, and it also felt as if my foot was on fire even though the weather was very cold. (Typical for CRPS) Since that time, the pain has spread up my leg. This past April, 2011, I received an allergy injection into the muscle of my right arm. It took a little over a month for me to become alarmed, but the same pain that was in my foot had taken over my right upper extremity.
I have been to numerous doctors, including two Neurologists and a Pain Management Clinic, but the only things that could be offered for an attempt to relieve or at least calm my pain and muscle spasms were, strong narcotics, which my body can’t tolerate, a neurotransmitter which would have to be surgically implanted in my back with no guarantee that it would work, and having to have the batteries replaced every two years via surgery, or cutting the Sympathetic Nerve with no guarantee of a cure, but possibly having to live with what the doctors refer to as ‘phantom pain.’
As you have read, there is no guarantee with any of the treatments I have been offered. I have been to physical therapy, but due to the circulation problem brought on by CRPS, the PT departments could not work with me any longer. I recently found a holistic therapist who was more helpful than anyone else had been, but the pain, muscle spasms, circulation problems and the muscle spasms have intensified to the point I was complaining to my family constantly.
My daughter began doing exhaustive research on all the conditions that accompany my CRPS, and after over 4 months, she brought a vial of essential oils to me. I was skeptical at first, but remembered the holistic therapist was able to help me more than any pain medication or regular PT. I have been using the essential oil mixture my daughter made since the end of December, 2011, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the results. I have been rubbing a small amount on my neck, shoulder, foot, and in all areas affected by the CRPS. The muscle spasms calmed in my neck and shoulder, making me more comfortable, and the circulation in my foot increased (my toes turned completely black, and I could not move them), making it possible for me to move my toes. I also had a headache every morning, and can happily report that hasn’t been an issue for almost two weeks now. Overall the inflammation is less severe, too.
I have become a believer in the comforting and healing properties of essential oils, and am deeply grateful to my daughter for all the days and hours she spent doing research in order to help me. For the first time in many years, I have hope that I can live more comfortably, and will not have to depend on narcotic medicines or surgery.
Thank you, Birkat Adonai Farms!
