LEARN HOW DOTERRA HELPED SHELLY
If you ask Shelley, she’ll tell you that her introduction to dōTERRA essential oils in August of 2011 literally saved her life. She was recovering from her 5th major surgery in a year (she had already been hospitalized five times that same year). “I lived daily with excruciating pain and was clinically depressed, among other health issues. A day never passed that I didn't think about wanting to die because of the pain.
One year before she was introduced to dōTERRA her colon was gangrened and septic and most of it had to be removed. After that her medications seemed to lose their effectiveness. Her friend recommended she try dōTERRA Deep Blue Soothing Blend. She also started taking some of the essential oils from the Family Physician Kit internally, such as Frankincense, Oregano, Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint, and within days her pain decreased substantially. She felt better, not only physically, but emotionally as well.
“After about ten days, the unbearable pain in my left leg and foot (the result of the auto accident) was gone—GONE! The oils did [in 10 days] what 3 electric stimulators, pain medications galore, acupuncture, too many nerve block shots to count, etc., couldn't do in 12 years. I'm still amazed. My life changed that day.” Her goal was to lose 30 pounds and here is how Shelly did it!
No matter where you are
starting from, you too can have a better quality of life.
SLIM & SASSY METABOLIC BLEND Add 5-7 drops to an empty capsule or 8 fl. oz. of liquid three times a day.
LIFELONG VITALITY PACK DAILY “I had to stop using the Lifelong Vitality Pack and oils during February before surgery. The difference was very noticeable. I was in a lot more pain and exhausted. I was reenergized within a few days of taking LLV again. ” (LRP Item No. 3421 or purchase individually)
TRIMSHAKE “It’s a great way to cut out one or two of your meals. Because of my health issues, I cannot eat a lot of fresh fruit because it can cause blockages in my colon. I blend the TrimShake with water, ice, and a variety of Naked Juice each morning so that I can get my serving of fruit for the day. On the days that I needed an extra pick-me-up, I would add 1 drop of Peppermint in the shake.”
DIGESTZEN DIGESTIVE BLEND "I rubbed 5-6 drops across the abdomen clockwise to help with digestive discomfort I had as a result of my colon surgery.”
DAILY EXERCISE “One goal I had was to walk or go to the gym every day. This was hampered by me being hospitalized a good portion of the competition. I kept my commitment though and walked several times a day in the hospital, sometimes over the whole wing.” In April 2012, Shelley’s surgeon gave her the okay to start regular exercise. She tries to go to the gym 3-5 times a week and exercise in both the gym and the pool. On the days she doesn’t go to the gym, she walks through her neighborhood.
EAT HEALTHY AND DRINK LOTS OF WATER “I didn't used to be a big water drinker, but now drink at least 64 ounces a day. Using the essential oils in my water makes it a treat. I used a variety of essential oils in my water every day, including Cinnamon, Clove, Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Wild Orange, etc.
Tip: Start with 1 drop and increase until you achieve desired flavor.
HOW SHELLEY’S LIFESTYLE HAS CHANGED “My life has changed dramatically over the past four months. I have gained confidence in myself and have met a lot of new people. This is the best present I could have given myself. It is hard to imagine that just 9 months ago I was in a wheelchair and that I didn't think life was worth living. Now I can walk wherever and whenever I want. What a blessing. I see a bright and happy future for myself. Additionally, my prayers were answered when I got custody of my son back (one year to the month he was taken from me). We couldn't be happier! Garrett loves the oils as much as I do, and uses them daily. He was able to come with me to the 2012 convention and see me on stage during the presentation of Slim & Sassy Lifestyle Change Competition winners. It was one of the proudest moments of my life.”
