DoTerra Essential Oils and Lyme Disease

I've recently been introduced to DoTerra essential oils.  The interesting thing is, I've always been drawn to oils, but never even considered the fact that some oils can be ingested and used as medicine.  While that may make some people laugh, and I sort of laugh at that now that I know differently as well.  Essential oils are opening up and entirely new medical world to me now and it's so exciting! 

A fellow lymie introduced the oils at one of our Lyme support meetings.  I knew right away that it was going to be my next treatment.  I researched quite extensively before diving in and am now a DoTerra consultant.  I've talked to so many people who are now lyme free - after many other unsuccessful treatment options.  I learned the importance of starting very slowly, so that is exactly what I am doing.

I started yesterday by using a dropper and carefully placing a drop of oregano oil into a pill capsule.  You can buy empty pill capsules at Walgreens or most organic markets.   Oregano oil is a hot oil and can burn your skin, so you have to be very careful.  Since it is a hot oil, I would advise against using it on your skin - even with a carrier oil.

I didn't notice anything after taking the drop yesterday.  However, today I am feeling a little uncomfortable which is a typical herx reaction for me.  It's not unbearable at all, but it's there.  I'm going to continue with one drop the remainder of the week before moving up to two drops. 

The oregano oil is meant to be taken for 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off within the Lyme protocol.  There are many other oils in the protocol, but as I mentioned, my intention is to start very slowly.  I will continue to update as I increase dosages and such.
