I have suffered with bronchial problems and the common cold since I was a
kid - I'm now 59. A few weeks ago, I developed a moderate cold and moderate
cough. I've never experienced a moderate type of cold like this before. It
just hung on and never really got me down. The cough was annoying, but I
was able to function in my business.
Then last Monday, the cough got worse, and I could feel congestion building
in my chest. I spent Thursday and Friday at home on the couch trying to let
the cold take its course. The cough got so bad that I coughed almost
constantly and developed laryngitis by Saturday morning. Along with this I
couldn't sleep. Not only could I not stop coughing, but lying down made it
worse. I was able to get maybe three to four hours of fractured sleep a
night, spending the early morning hours sitting upright on the couch waiting
for the sunrise. It's not that I haven't experienced all this before, but
not to this degree. This was the worst sickness I've ever experienced.
By Saturday afternoon, I was going out of my mind. I have
my phyisician's cell phone number. My wife urged me to call
him. I refused, because I knew he would just tell me to take
antibiotics, and as you pointed out, they only work if the infection
is bacterial. In absolute desparation, I did a web search for
bronchitis cures and found your web site. I read your material,
and it fit exactly with my thoughts about antibiotics. After
buying and reading your material, I sent my wife to the health
food store. She was able to get all three essential oils. I
started the therapy Friday evening about 7:00 PM. Before
I started it, my coughing had already begun to subside, however,
lying down to try to sleep just brought on the cough again.
And the wheezing was unbearable. By Saturday evening,
after a full day of your therapy, five times in all, I started
feeling much better. The phlegm started to loosen,
and I was able to cough it out a little. I was able
to sleep about six hours that night, more than I ever expected.
I continued with the therapy all day Sunday, continuing to feel better as
the day progressed, and I was able to sleep through the night Sunday. This
morning (Monday), I feel the cold still there, but I've stopped coughing and
my lungs are almost cleared out. My laryngitis continues, something that
I've never had for more than a day before. But I feel terrific compared to
last Thursday and Friday.
I really think this kind of aroma therapy is what made
it leave so quickly!
Thanks for the therapy. I look forward to using your therapy on sinusitis,
another problem I've had my entire life.
