At the age of 53, I experienced a heart attack all due from stress. I never knew stress could take that much of a toll on a body. I never even really considered myself as a person who was highly stressed. I thought I handled it pretty well. Until the day came when I didn't! Day-to-Day stress had been building, and then came the major project at work where I was getting alot of pressure. As the day went on, I was getting madder and madder as I had let my frustrations build and intensify. By that afternoon, I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. When I got home that evening, my husband at the time, demanded we go to the hospital as that pressure on my chest also turned into a fist in the middle of my back.
Turned out I was admitted into ICU, with 'Broken Heart Syndrome'! The next morning my heart was so weak, I went into cardiac arrest. They had to place a pump to my heart to take make it easier on my heart. I was in the hospital for ten long days. Needless to say, the stress I was feeling prior to this got way worse as I experienced separation anxiety, fear of dying, and all the uncertainties.
It took me six months to recover and during that recovery period, I was given the gift of essential oils. They were not Young Living essential oils though. It was about a month later when I was introduced to Young Living. Let me tell you, there is no comparison when it comes to quality! I smelled the Lavender of the brand I was given, to the Young Living Lavender and I was hooked! I then tried their Stress Away essential oil and had my very first testimony. I literally felt my shoulders drop down and I felt relaxed. This oil has and will always be my favorite!
Ever since that day, I have been a believer in Young Living. It didn't take me long at all to decide I was going to give the business a try. Almost four years later and I am so glad I did! I have met so many amazing friends. I continue to experience so many different testimonies as I continue to ditch the toxins from my life and replace with Young Living products I know I can count on!
I will always be a believer of Young Living, their Seed-to-Seal guarantee, their culture, their beliefs, their customer service mentality, and their values!
