Has anyone tried essential oils to manage pain, symptoms? I recently have become a wellness advocate for doTerra oils and I have had some wonderful changes both physically and mentally. I was diagnosed with moderate to severe Crohns in 2008. Have had inflammation issues since. Currently taking Humira weekly. I recently was on sulfasalazine (which had been tried years ago), and instead of refilling I started taking essential oils. I will say the Lifelong Vitality Pack and probiotic have been amazing to help my symptoms. I have more energy and less digestive issues. I also use them to help mentally when I am feeling down. It really has been a great change for me after almost 10 years of suffering. I didn't even know what all they could do for me. I recently saw my GI and told him I was interested in using essential oils and he was on board for me to try those instead of refilling the sulfasalazine and checking back in 6 months! There are oils for almost every ailment you feel! If you are interested and would like to learn more, please message me!

I have not tried that, but have tried cbd oil from http://medicalmarijianainc.com and https://canabidol.com/?ba=lords1979. Both of these have worked wonders for my pain and without the side effects of the prescribed pain meds. I have severe crohns and have been hospitalized multiple times for bowel obstructions. Since using this, I have not been hospitalized. I live in a state where medical marijuana is not legal somhabe used both of these cbd products that are 50 state legal.
