If you read my past newsletter, you know that I’ve been out of commission since January. I was dealing with balance and dizziness so severe that I couldn’t walk without assistance and driving was out of the question.
July 1, I had enough of being a captive in my home and started walking. That first day it took me an hour to walk a mile. It was rough. I ordered some balance trekking poles from Amazon and started my outdoor adventure. Last week I had gotten up to 4 or 5 miles a day and was walking at a 21-minute mile pace.
I was feeling fairly able and looking forward to better days. I was even able to drive once in awhile on my good days.
Now, it’s confession time. I never asked the Lord what I should do. I stopped meditating about 2 years ago. Why? I’m not sure. I just drifted. It’s easy to do. I get in the habit of doing something and then I wonder if it’s really helping. Then I decide I’m too busy and let it go. I then find myself in a different realm than I wanted to be i and I wonder why. I analyze my habits and find out those things I wasn’t sure if they were helping me or not were exactly what I needed to stay on track to achieve my goals. Silly me!
Confession number 2. November of last year we were having some financial problems. We looked at our budget and saw we were spending $360/month on Doterra Life Long Vitality pack (LLV). One dose for me and one for my husband. We made the financial decision to cut back so we went to a ½ dose.
In December during my yearly physical, I told my doctor I was experiencing some dizziness. He said it would probably resolve itself in a few weeks and if it didn’t to come back and see him. I finished my LLV ½ dose that month.
January 12 of this year I went back to see my doctor because I was getting worse NOT better. The decision to stop working was made and the testing began. I had so many tests for my eyes, ears, neck, brain, blood, and balance. All of which came back negative which was good because it wasn’t anything requiring surgery.
In May they diagnosed me with vestibular migraines and put me on Ajovy. I was told it could take up to 3-4 months to take effect. Ajovy is a once a month shot that I gave myself subcutaneously. I had a horrible rash, pain, and swelling at the sight lasting 7 days or longer.
On Sept 19, 2023, I told my neurologist I was still having symptoms and it seemed to be getting worse. She told me she was calling in two new prescriptions for me. After talking to her and asking many questions, she explained to me that no one really knows what causes migraines, and everyone is different in how they respond to the medications. (If you want to talk more about this, please reach out to me.)
After some God designed coincidences, one being my mentors Kirk and Kim Duncan on Friday Sept 15 and the other being a meeting with Andy and Natalie Goddard on Sat Sept 16. I got up Sunday morning at 3:30 am Sept 17, 2023, and did my first meditation in just over 2 years. I’m VERY grateful to say that the Lord had been waiting for me. He had some things to say and one of them was what I needed to do to get healthy. START TAKING YOUR LLV NOW.
I had to wait until Friday Sept 22 when my husband got paid to order them. Thursday and Friday were really dad days for me. I was so nauseous, all I wanted to do was lay in bed. Friday morning at 10:30 am I ordered and picked the LLV from Doterra. I took ½ a dose because when I first started taking LLV in 2018 I didn’t sleep for about 36 hours, so I wanted to start slow. At dinner I noticed my nausea was gone and I was feeling better.
I get up at 6:30 am or before usually and Saturday was no exception. I got up and fed the cat in the back yard and the birds. I had a mild dizzy spell and head rush. I thought I should go eat something. I got a bagel and cream cheese and took ½ dose of LLV with my breakfast and then the other ½ with lunch.
It is now Monday Sept 25 and I’m happy to report that I feel back to my old self. I’m able to drive. I walk without assistance. I even chopped wood for an hour Sunday afternoon and again this morning. I have NO dizziness, nausea, or head rush. I’m 100% back to full health after 10 months of struggle and sickness.
THANK YOU, JESUS!!
And the money I thought I was saving by not taking LLV? Let me break down the numbers for you!
Doctor’s visits $853.88
Physical Therapy $607
For a total of $1,677.03
Missed wages $19,832.18.
Grand total decreasing my LLV to save money -$21,509.21.
Staying on Doterra $180.50 per month.
I could have purchased Doterra for every person in my family and then some.
I WILL FOREVER USE DOTERRA LIFE LONG VITALITY FOR MY HEALTH.
So, if you’re wondering does LLV really work? That myth has been busted. YES, IT DOES!
Save yourself some money and stick with your Doterra LLV.
If you had to choose between being healthy or being wealthy, which one would you choose. What if you could have both? What if you didn’t think that was an option?
I’m just asking.
