Two years ago, I went to my doctor with chronic migraine symptoms and was diagnosed with hypertension. Apart from migraines, I’d never been sick, I was very active, I was 27 at the time and at 5 foot 7 inches, I weighed 120 pounds! Even my doctor was shocked. They ran a battery of tests and could find nothing wrong. The doctor was reluctant to put me on medication because I was so young. She suggested I change my eating habits and consume more foods rich in potassium, fibre and essential oils. So off I went, with my blood pressure even higher and my migraines even worse because of the constant worry. A few months ago, I was visiting a friend of mine who’s a health nut and I had a migraine episode again. She went to her cupboard and took out a bottle of your oregano oil, and put three or four drops of the stuff under my tongue. I screamed at her because the taste was so strong, but within seconds the heat sensation subsided and, miraculously, so did the migraine! Needless to say, I immediately hunted down and secured a bottle for myself. I now take it religiously every day and encourage others to try it. Taking your oil has forced me to live a healthier lifestyle, because it forces me to drink more water and eat healthier meals to get the best effect from the oil. I cut down my sodium intake and use the oil to flavour my meals and soups instead. One or two drops go a long way. My husband is amazed that I haven’t been sick or complained of any aches or pains for ages. Even my mother is shocked, I’ve been having chronic migraines since I was a child. Now, if I even do get migraine symptoms, instead of reaching for my headache pills, I plop a drop or two or the oil under my tongue, or mix a little bit of it into my skin cream and rub it on my temples. By the way, my blood pressure has dropped a whopping ten points in eight months, WITHOUT MEDICATION, and has remained stable! I’m proud to support Canadian businesses, thanks and keep up the good work! Anne V.
