I Treated My Painful Tendonitis with Young Living Essential Oils and Supplements
Let’s talk about Tendonitis. If any of you have had that diagnosis you know it is painful and difficult to get rid of. Tendonitis simply means inflammation of the tendon. One of the reasons it is so difficult to get rid of is because usually the tendon that is affected is used repeatedly. That repetition aggravates the inflammation.
I have been struggling with tendonitis in my right thumb. The pain runs up the thumb side of my arm into my wrist (radial side). The diagnosis is called De Quervain. My numb will often get stuck when I stretch my fingers to wide and the pain often wakes me up at night most generally because of the position of my hand. Repeatedly using my cell phone and computer throughout the day does not help the situation. Thankfully after 3 months of treatment I can say that my pain is gone. You ask “How did you get rid of it?” I am glad you asked!
Number one! I take Young Living product called Sulfurzyme. Sulfurzyme combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies. (Don’t confuse this sulfur with the Sulfonamide or sulfa that is in antibiotics.) Sulfurzyme acts as a pain reliever and reduces inflammation. The Wolfberry that is added helps the body to use the MSM down deep in our cells.
Number two! I used essential oils 5 to 6 times per day to help reduce inflammation and pain. The essential oils I found to be most effective are: Wintergreen followed by Peppermint, Panaway, Oregano that I combine with olive oil, and Deep Relief. Use one essential oil mentioned above and the next time apply something different so you are not using the same essential oil every time. Again, I did this 5 to 6 times per day. There were times I would feel great and then I would forget to apply the essential oils. That is when I took two steps back and would again have pain. KEEP IT UP! This last time I used the essential oils 5 to 6 times per day until my pain was completely gone for a week. Now I use them a couple a times a day to prevent any problems.
As far as the Sulfurzyme goes…I will always take my Sulfurzyme. Why? I want to keep inflammation down in all areas of my body and it is a mineral that our food sources are depleted in so I supplement my diet with Sulfurzyme faithfully.
