Why I Am Passionate about doTERRA Essential Oils
At eight months old (after four long months of waiting to see a pediatric neurologist and the longest three hour drive to Kansas City) our youngest son Rylan was diagnosed with West Syndrome. Since this is not very common we had no idea what this meant. The doctor broke it down in lay mans terms informing us that Rylan had a stroke before he was born and that with this most kids either had autism or epilepsy.
That same day we began noticing that Rylan kept falling forward and then sitting back up, almost like he was sneezing, except there was no sneeze accompanying it. We called the doctor and told him of our new discovery he asked that we video Rylan and email it to him so he could see what was happening.
The diagnosis was infantile spasms which are a type of seizure. Within a few weeks Rylan had so many appointments it was difficult to keep track of them all. Between the MRI, and EEG as well as more follow up appointments with the Neurologist to determine which Anti-Seizure medications would work best for him our lives became very hectic and busy.
Over the next few months we listened to the doctor as he recommended many different medications. Each time we did our own research attempting to choose the lesser of all the evils, or the medications with the least amount of side effects that our baby would have to endure.
Unfortunately it got to the point that each time a medication wasn’t working, they would add another medication and never take away the old one. At 15 months old Rylan, per doctor’s recommendation was on four different anti seizure medications none of which were working.
Sadly instead of helping him get better he seemed to be getting worse. Rylan was up to 45 infantile spasm seizures at a time. The next medication the doctor was recommending listed Blindness by age three as the major side effect. It had to be imported from another country and was not FDA approved.
Regrettably the doctors informed us that if we were unwilling to try new medications then the next step was to remove the portion of his brain where the seizures were occurring.
With the major side effect of the new drug and no guarantee, we began praying and looking at other options. We were tired of the medications, the side effects as well as the doctors and lack of optimistic results. We began searching other avenues. My grandmother introduced us to a friend of hers who knew about essential oils.
Within one week of using essential oils Rylan stopped having seizures and had learned to roll over. We were transferred to Colorado and found a new neurologist who was willing to help us get Rylan off all his medications.
Sadly, the stroke he had has left him with many struggles and challenges to overcome. Rylan is one of the busiest four year olds I have ever met. He still has to do a lot of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy that have helped him to gain the physical abilities he has obtained.
However, Rylan life is drastically different because we found essential oils. Rylan is almost 5 years old. He no longer has to take any anti seizure medications he can walk, run, and jump. He loves to climb and is excited to overcome every challenge he meets. To look at him Rylan seems to be a normal kid.
Although Rylan will forever have epilepsy, he will never be governed by this. Rylan has been seizure free for 18 months and continues to thrive every day. We use Frankincense every night before he goes to sleep on the back of his neck to prevent any seizures.
I watch my son every day with wonder and I’m filled with deep appreciation and gratitude to my Grandmother who introduced us to essential oils as well as Doterra for their 100% pure essential oils that have no side effects.
They are truly a blessing in our lives, most of all in my son’s life. Thank You doTERRA!
