is a disorder wherein the body is not able to deliver the
glucose in the blood stream to cells throughout the body.
When we eat food it is broken down into a form of sugar
called glucose. Glucose then is delivered by the
bloodstream to muscle, fat, and liver cells where it is the
fuel for our bodies. In order for our cells to
assimilate the glucose it must be accompanied by an enabler
called insulin. Insulin is produced by our pancreas.
If our pancreas does not produce proper amounts of insulin
or if our cells cannot properly process insulin it results
in diabetes. Since the glucose is not properly
utilized it accumulates in the bloodstream resulting in the
common indicator of diabetes, high blood glucose or sugar.
Symptoms of diabetes include:
or tingling in the feet
There are three major types of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes,
also known as juvenile diabetes; Type 2 Diabetes, the most
common form affecting 90 – 95% of those with diabetes; and
Gestational Diabetes that occurs during pregnancy in about
4% of all pregnancies. Also the conditions of
pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome are related.
Type 1 Diabetes
This is an autoimmune disease. The body’s own
immune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas
(beta cells) that produce insulin. Presently it is not
known what triggers this but genetics, environment, and
viral infection are all suggested. Once this process
is triggered within 5 to 10 years all of the beta cells in
the pancreas are destroyed. Without insulin the body
does not receive the necessary fuel to the cells hence it
must be supplied artificially. Those with Type 1 diabetes
monitor their glucose levels and take shots or use an
insulin pump to supplement or provide the necessary insulin.
Those with this condition can improve their quality of life
by making wise food choices with proper nutrition, keeping
their body systems strong, and maintaining a healthy
Type 2 Diabetes
About 90 to 95% of those with diabetes have type 2.
Of those that have type 2 about 80% of them are overweight
but type 2 might also be associated with a family history of
diabetes, older age, physical inactivity, and a history of
gestational diabetes. Some ethnicities are predisposed as
well, including African American, Mexican American, and
those from the Pacific Islands.
In this condition the pancreas functions properly and
produces insulin but the body does not utilize it properly.
This is labeled insulin resistant. Type 2 symptoms
usually develop slowly as the body cannot use the insulin
supplied by the pancreas. Eventually insulin
production decreases. Help for this condition comes
from proper diet, nutrition, and physical exercise. Some
essential oils are recommended for assisting the body in
utilizing the glucose available in the bloodstream.
This type of diabetes affects a small number of women in
pregnancy. It typically develops in the later part of
a pregnancy and may even go undetected. It does
increase the risk of other complications to mother and baby.
After pregnancy the diabetes disappears but in 40 –60% of
the cases there is a likelihood that the mother will develop
type 2 diabetes in later life.
Closely associated with diabetes
This is the when blood glucose levels are measured to be
higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as
diabetes. It is estimated that 1 in 4 of adults in the
U.S. fall in this category. Those with pre-diabetes
not only have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes
within 10 years but they are also at risk to have
cardiovascular problems. These risks are reduced
significantly with a 5 – 7% reduction in body weight and
with improved diet, nutrition, and exercise.
This is the term used to describe someone with a group of
risk factors for type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease,
and stroke. The two most important of these risk
factors are 1) obesity, particularly central obesity or
extra weight around the middle of the body and 2) insulin
resistance, or having the condition that the body is not
able to use insulin in the proper way.
The A1C Test
For those not familiar the A1C is the scale used to
measure blood glucose and how it relates to diabetic
conditions. This is the common blood glucose test used
to diagnose diabetes and help those with diabetes manage the
condition. It is also know by the names glycated
hemoglobin, glycosylated hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1C, and
HbA1c. This test show the average blood glucose level
over the last 2 or 3 months where normal home monitoring
tests gives the blood sugar level at the time of the test.
Those without diabetes will be below 5% and those with
type 1 or type 2 diabetes will be above 6.5 – 7% on the
Average Blood Glucose

Experiences and Testimonials of others
Julie – My friend
has type 2 diabetes and refuses to make changes in her awful
diet and pretty much ignoring the diagnosis she got a few
years ago so she is heading down a bad road. What is
appropriate to suggest to her?
Karen - My mom has had type 2 diabetes
for 30 years. She has been using Dr. Hill's protocol for
about 6 weeks now with amazing results. She has cut out one
of her two insulins and cut back on the other. Dr. Hill
recommends Balance on the feet in the morning and Lavender
at night. A capsule every morning with 8 drops Coriander and
8 drops Basil. She started out with 4 drops each in the
capsule and is now at 5 drops each. She saw results from the
very first day using the oils. I recently started adding 2
drops of On Guard and the results were even better. The oils
Pat - I would suggest a capsule with 5
drops of Coriander daily, and getting her on the LLV.
This is what I would do if I were diagnosed with diabetes.
Julie Ann - I would add some Balance to
the above recommendations. It works wonders for my son!
Carla - Can
Coriander be used for all diabetes types? My mom is
trying to get off her diabetes medicine as it makes her sick
and is looking for other ways to control it. She is
not on insulin. Would Coriander also help her and how
would she use it, internally or externally?
Julie Ann - On the toes, bottom of foot
and over the pancreas area.
Chris - When I started using essential
oils in August, I began using the Life Long Wellness
supplements and 5 drops of Basil in a capsule
everyday. In the first 3 months, my A1C went from 6.1
down to 5.8. That doesn't sound like a lot, but it is!
And that was before I had access to Coriander. I am
now using 2 drops of Coriander with the Basil everyday.
I am excited to see my next blood test.
So...YES....These oils work!!
Chris, Dec 2010 a follow-up - My A1c
test result in Aug 2009 was 6.1. I was taking
medication for diabetes. I started using DoTerra
products that same month and started on the LLW right away.
I also learned from Dr. Hill that 5 drops of Basil in a
capsule each day would help . In November 2009, my A1c
was down to 5.8. I asked my Primary Care Physician if
I could go off of my medication and she agreed. My next test
results were 3 months later and I was down to 5.7 and the
last one in August of 2010 was 5.5!! Hooray!
Elaine - I also
have PCOS and Insulin Resistance. I started the LLV a few
weeks ago, but haven't felt much different yet hormonally or
energy-wise. It has helped with digestion, though.
Any suggestions for Insulin Resistance?
Pat - Try Terrazyme for your Insulin
problem, it's amazing. And don't forget to drink lots of
water with lemon in it.
Sherrie - This is the first I've heard
of Terrazyme used for insulin problems. Can you explain
Pat - I was not aware of this myself
until this weekend. A young woman with diabetes came up to
me at our West Coast Convention and asked where the products
were going to be. I told her there were not products
available at this show. She was very upset. She told me that
Terrazyme is what she is using to keep her insulin regulated
and nothing else. She didn't have any left for her trip to
convention and just thought she would buy some here. I
happened to ask my friend Lynda if she brought her Terrazyme
and she did, so she gave the girl enough to get her through
the weekend. She came up to me Saturday morning and said
when she drew blood her count was over 400 (Yikes), she took
two Terrazymes and took her blood one hour later (I would
have been on my way to the hospital) and her blood sugars
were down 200 points. I can't tell you anything about
stability or why these work but this sweet young lady swears
Jon - Our neighbor and good friend was
just diagnosed with diabetes (not sure what type). We'd
like to help out and are wondering if anyone knows what oils
are good for diabetes and how to use them. We've done some
research and Cinnamon/Cassia, Wild Orange, Basil, Thyme,
Rosemary, etc. are recommended in various sources. Any idea
which ones have actually worked for people with diabetes?
Pat - One of the best things for
diabetes (along with oils) is good nutrition. Whatever you
recommend include balance supplements like the
Tamalu - I agree that nutrition is
crucial to supporting and rebuilding the body. I have
seen blood sugar issues respond within 18-24 hours to the
LLW pack. I would add
On Guard to their arsenal as well, starting out in very small
amounts and letting them decide what dosages work best for
them (remember, the best help you can provide is empowering
self-care!). Topically works or ingesting works well.
I suggest starting with a drop or two at a time. The
Cinnamon and Wild Orange can be so helpful in managing blood
sugar levels, while the blend works to combat the cause of
the problem and assist the pancreas in rebuilding. I am
finding that even in people where the root cause of their
health issue is emotional, On Guard is equipped to isolate
that and assist the person in overcoming. I would also add
Balance to the bottoms of the feet.
Samara - My dad is using oils for the
first time in his life. He is using Lavender on the sores
he has on his legs and after just a few days, they are
healed! His legs haven't looked this good in years!
Kendra - I would like more information
on helping diabetes with Cassia and Wild Orange. I read
someone say that these 2 oils help to rebuild the pancreas.
Help me with this, as I know an older gentleman who is
diabetic and suffers from neuropathy. He is very
concerned about his feet but their finances are very
limited. (Neuropathy is diabetic nerve pain)
April - I am trying to help a 65
year old man with diabetes and neuropathy. He has started
taking the LLW
supplements and I have given him several oils for the
neuropathy. I made him 2 different blends in glass
bottles with droppers and he rubs them on his feet in the
morning and at night. He uses each blend for one week at a
time, alternating them. I suggested he use a warm compress
at least one of the times. He also rubs Lavender on his feet
at night after he uses the blend, and that seems to calm the
nerves in his feet so he can sleep better. He takes a
capsule of Basil everyday as well. He has been doing this
regiment for about 2 weeks and is seeing great results! We
don't know about the diabetes quite yet, but his feet are
feeling 100% better than before the oils, and he tried
several different things to help them, for several years.
Here are the blends we are using:
Diabetes, Type 2
Rub Balance on feet in the morning
Take 8-10 drops of Basil in a
capsule during the day
Rub Lavender on the feet at night
(since Balance is included in the neuropathy blend below,
he doesn't rub it on his feet. He just uses it in the blend
instead. However, he does rub the Lavender on his feet at
night after rubbing in the blend.)
Neuropathy Blend 1:
Apply to feet and cover with a hot, moist towel. Cover that
with a dry towel to keep in the heat longer. Be consistent
in application, at least once or twice per day. Use 2-4
drops each of the following oils:
Neuropathy Blend 2:
Use oils that would benefit a stressed nervous system. Eat
healthy, whole and raw foods... it is a change that must be
made now. Daily massage to the feet and lower legs using:
Balance with Helichrysum or Clove.
Be consistent morning and night or more. Change up oils or
blends every so often.
Rob - I know there are some other
protocols that people have attested to, however, lately,
I've used the AromaTouch blend successfully for relieving
neuropathy. Remember the importance of good diet, it doesn't
help to use oils if your diet is poor.
Hannah - At a recent meeting there was
made mention of a Basil oil and the diabetes protocol. Does
anyone have details on this?
Pat - Dr. Hill reported the chemical
compound linalool is the subject of a pharmaceutical patent
that makes the claim it can treat, control, and prevent
diabetes mellitus (diabetes). Common essential oils which
have the highest linalool content are Rosewood, at over 90%
(in the doTerra blend, Balance) and Basil at 40-50%. I would
not hesitate to put this on the feet of a regular basis.
Also use On Guard. It is awesome for balancing blood sugar
and will boost the immune system allowing the body to build
more effectively. And the supplements (LLW)
are a must for diabetics. Here is a protocol that might
rub Balance on the feet in the morning
take 8-10 drops of Basil in a capsule during the day
rub Lavender on the feet at night
Pauline - I have a
friend interested in the LLV but she has type 1 diabetes and
is also nursing. She is unable to consume too much
carbohydrates. Will the LLV interfere with her maintenance
meds? She is interested in increasing her energy level to
keep up with her 3 year old. Any suggestions/ ideas?
Becky - I have Type I diabetes and take
the LLV faithfully. My blood sugars have stabilized and my
insulin needs have decreased since I started taking it.
Kristy - Becky,
what all do you use for your type 1? I have a friend with
two teenagers just diagnosed. I would love to give her
information on Type 1.
Becky - First the root cause has to be
addressed. There are 2 common theories according to
western medicine that could be the cause of Type I.
First, some people get flu like symptoms and then
following a short time later start having symptoms of
diabetes, so that thought is that a pathogen likely caused a
problem. In that case, the pathogen may still be in the body
and so I suggest to use the antibacterial/antiviral oils.
Use it daily or 2 - 3 times a day.
The other thought is a food allergy that has subtle
symptoms but not rashes or respiratory issues etc. but the
allergy reaction causes an autoimmune response and the body
destroys good cells. Find the most common food allergies and
see if it is foods the person eats regularly and eliminate
them for at least 2 weeks completely and see if they are
better in any way. It took me about 4 weeks with gluten
which caused pain in my muscles and joints. Watch for sleep
better, less tired, less stiff, less congestion, anything,
we all respond differently. They can also have allergy
testing done, but the skin testing is not reliable enough.
There are blood tests that show the allergens more
Thirdly, one thing American doctors don't ever hardly
look at is parasites. Doctors may not know how to treat them
or even test for them? . Oils can also treat these. The
cause of my diabetes likely was a parasite called a
Adding in the supplements is a must if there are the
symptoms of diabetes. This addresses the need for nutrition
that has been lacking either in the diet or the persons
inability to absorb.
Also detoxify in any way possible. Do ionized foot baths
if possible. It helps to eliminate toxins, heavy metals,
which are very harsh on the endocrine system. Or soak feet
in a tub of water with coriander or cilantro in it with some
sea or Epsom salts. Use purified water not only to drink but
also to bathe in. Chlorine is a horrible toxin. Eliminate
all personal care items, cleaning products, and foods that
contain toxins. Make use of an infrared sauna. Work out and
sweat! Sweating is a great way to detoxify.
Add enzymes into the diet either with supplements (lipase
for fats, protease for proteins and amylase for
carbohydrates) Eat raw nuts, fruits, veggies as they contain
enzymes and chew all food well. This helps the enzymes in
our bodies to start the digestive process. I use an
auricular probe on my feet, hands and ears on the
reflexology points for the pancreas. Have a positive
Recently I started on Dr Hill’s suggested DNA repair oil
blend DDR. I was trying 5 days on and 2 days off. That is a
bit much for me and I kept breaking out in rashes that
itched terribly so I dropped back to every other day and I
am doing better. (Yes, I know the toxins needs to come out,
but I also need to function as my health improves.) I am
also very sensitive to most everything (partially heredity
and partially because I was overdosed and toxified with too
many prescription drugs which made it worse!) and can't go
with as much as most people.
I also use Zendocrine oil and capsules rotating between
them. Do cleanses of other sorts. Symptoms of any disease
means there are blockages or imbalances that need addressed.
What I have done doesn't necessarily mean it is the right
thing for anyone else. There is no magic bullet, these are
some of the things I have done and can say that I have
decreased my insulin requirements from 40 - 45 units/day to
my current levels of 20 - 24 units a day. This has been a
process over the past 4 years. This is not to indicate that
anyone else will have the same results.
I also take the bone supplement, partially because of age
and being small boned. But the thing that excited me about
it also was that it contains 400mg of magnesium. Diabetes is
one thing listed that magnesium helps with.
Sharon – You might also want to consider
a raw vegan diet. Many have written books about it and there
is a documentary by Dr. Cousens with 6 diabetics, 2 of whom
are Type one. One got off insulin completely and the
other went from 30 units to 1 or 2 daily. Raw for Thirty
Days I think it's called. While I'm not a big fan of a
raw vegan diet done long term done properly it is possible.
You just have to be really careful to supplement with
thyroid boosting foods (or perhaps oils). The endocrine
system can become weak in some people on raw vegan but it's
definitely worth taking a look at the option and trying it
Editorial comment – The following are
shortened version of quite long exchanges on Type 1
Diabetes. Please go to the EverythingDoTerra Google Group
for the complete exchanges.
Kathy – I would
like to see someone with a protocol for type 1 - I know
several people with type 1 and don't know if a protocol will
help - I would love to find out!
Sharon - Anyone with diabetes, Type one
or two should really check out the documentary Simply Raw,
Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days. It documents how 6 diabetes,
2 Type 1's and 4 Type 2's get off their meds quickly. One
only Type one didn't. He lowered his from 30 to 1 unit
though when he stuck to the diet. The diet is not
appealing to everyone, especially not those who like junk
food, but for anyone serious about their health it would be
worth looking into. There's a book as well that outlines the
details but the documentary is amazing to see.
Kent - I was really hoping that there
was some oil, or a combination of oils that would help bring
the pancreas back to life and start producing insulin again.
In the early stages of the honeymoon phase of a type 1
diabetic, maybe that could be possible. At this point, both
of my daughters who are type 1 diabetics, would much rather
give themselves shots 2-3 times a day, than go on a strict
diet and do other things to manage their blood sugars. I
have one daughter that is on an electronic pump, and it is
very little effort to control her blood sugars, and she has
very few limits on what she can eat. Her A1C is practically
at the level of someone who has a healthy pancreas.
For type 1 diabetics, it has become very easy for them to
manage their blood sugars. In this new diabetic protocol, if
people have to adhere to a certain diet to make it work, I
just don't see this protocol being very popular. I applaud
those people that have tried to control their blood sugars
by what they eat (where they have practically reduced or
eliminated medication), because that is very difficult to
do. I truly believe blood sugars can be controlled by what
you eat, but who in their right mind is going to live only
on raw vegetables (that can never be cooked) for the rest of
their life. In both of my daughters’ cases, who are both
type 1 diabetics, there is nothing they want more than to
eat normal balanced meals like most everyone else.
HM - I know two
young people -- one 9 years of age, and the other 15 -- who
have just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Is this
disease reversible at all? If anyone has any suggestions
that would help a person dealing with this disease, please
let me know. Thank you.
Nannette - I had someone ask me to give
suggestions to a girl, age 14 diagnosed with Type 1
Diabetes. Here are my thoughts that I shared:
I would start very slowly and be careful not to add too
much responsibility on her at this point. I’m hopeful
because she is still on the honeymoon phase and family and
friends are very supportive.
Since her pancreas is still making a tiny bit of insulin
she will benefit from a regular exercise program like
walking. Exercise enhances the ability of the body to use
what little insulin is secreted.
Our pancreas has a key role in digestion. It makes
alkaline juice to neutralize the acid in the stomach. A sick
pancreas may not able to do this properly anymore. DoTERRA
Lemon essential oil has alkalizing benefits. A drop in the
drinking water gives energy and lifts mood. Drinking
alkaline water already is a good idea. Invest in a good
alkalizing machine for the entire family. Use whole
unprocessed foods like nuts, fruits, vegetables because they
are the most alkaline and they place the least amount of
strain on the digestive organs, and they contain the most
minerals and vitamins.
The pancreas also makes enzymes to breakdown protein into
amino acid; starch into sugar and fats into fatty acids and
glycerin. To make up for what is missing, raw foods (enzymes
are lost from cooking) would be great in her diet, along
with supplementation. DoTERRA has an enzyme product called
Terrazyme that should be taken 30 minutes before meals.
Also chew food thoroughly to activate saliva secretion
There will also be benefit from a pro-biotic supplement
in order to balance the intestinal tract with beneficial
microflora. When friendly bacteria are present in the
intestines they prevent the colonization of pathogenic
microorganisms. PB Assist+ is highly recommended.
There are essential oils that support pancreas healing
(fennel, cypress), oils that support the functions of the
thyroid (myrrh, lemongrass, geranium) and adrenals( basil,
rosemary, clove). I would use these oils for two months or
so before proceeding with the Zendocrine complex for
cleansing and filtering organs like the liver, kidneys,
lungs, skin and colon.
I encourage folks to stay on their medications,
regularly monitor their sugar and stay active.
Valerie - Diabetes is particularly of
interest because my mom has type II diabetes and she is
currently using some essential oils. Someone stated to me
today that you should not use Lavender on anyone with
diabetes as it can harm him or her. Is this true?
Pat – Whoever experienced negative
results using Lavender were using one that was not pure
(there are many out there). DoTerra CPTG Lavender is highly
tested for impurities and assured to be pure and should not
have negative results.
Samara - Just to ease your mind my dad
uses doTerra Lavender for his diabetic sores on his legs and
to help him sleep. He has only had wonderful results. I
just found out tonight that my mom started putting Lavender
and Frankincense on some cancer type spots on his ears and
they have been going away and/or falling off. He had a
large spot melanoma on his face last year and had to have it
surgically removed, so to be able to treat these spots
without them getting out of hand is so exciting and
comforting for his family.
I have both of my parents using Lavender and both of them
have type II diabetes. Each of them take a different
medication for their diabetes, (I can call them to find out
what they are on if you'd like) and Lavender doesn't
interfere with either medication. Pat is right, the doctor
probably wasn't educated about pure oils. I don't know
about any body else, but the purity of the oils takes some
getting used to, in a good way. You know, no warning
labels, no horrible side effects to expect.
Penne - I am type II diabetic and have
used Lavender for burns and healing with great results. In
fact I had surgery a few months ago and dōTerra oils,
including Lavender, were instrumental in one of my incisions
healing with minimal scaring. Here is a test I did so I
could tell if the oils were doing what I thought they
should, I used the oils on only one incision. The incision
I used the oils on is dramatically different (in a great
way) than the one I didn't. Now I am in the process of
oiling the second site to get it as healed as the first one.
Use the Lavender!
Pat - I have a neuropathy blend that may
be a less expensive way to begin help. We have used
Cassia and Wild Orange in a capsule and also massaged it on
the bottom of the feet.
Jenyce - I have a
friend that has a diabetic ulcer on the pad and crease of
her baby toe. It is about 3 centimeters in diameter. She is
not taking care of herself or her diabetes and I'm afraid
she is going to lose her foot. I recommended and she
just started taking the doTerra wellness supplements (LLW).
She is already feeling amazing. But, what oils would
help with the ulcer and her diabetes?
Pat - Helichrysum regenerates tissue and
could be considered for the wound. Also the idea of
increasing circulation with Cypress oils and/or the
AromaTouch blend is very good.
For diabetes some have used Cassia or Lemongrass in a
capsule. 5 drops of the essential oil with 2-3 drops
of EVCO. Take the
capsule with food daily. Be consistent and allow at
least 30 days to see changes. Cinnamon can be used
instead of Cassia, but with the Lemongrass use one or the
Muffy - I have been told I might be
pre-diabetic. Is there any oils that I can use to control
my sugar levels?
Jessica – Dill Oil! When I was
pregnant with my last baby, I had borderline Gestational
Diabetes. One morning I decided that it had been years
since I ate a bowl of cold cereal,so I joined my kids for
breakfast. Word of warning never eat Coco Puffs when
you have diabetes! An hour later I felt lousy. I
called my best friend (who is an OB/GYN) and told her, she
asked what I ate, I sheepishly admitted to the "chocolate
frosted sugar bombs!" She had me test my sugar and it
was almost 300!
I immediately applied dill oil. I put five drops in
my mouth and then drank water fast. I retested in 40
minutes and my blood sugar was down to 95! For this
reason I always have dill oil on hand.
Rob - I have heard dill oil is
effective, unfortunately, doTerra does not source dill oil
With respect to pre-diabetic help right off the bat, I
would remind you of the importance of proper nutrition and
the benefits of using the
LLW pack. Beyond this exercise and diet are most
important. You must exercise at least 1/2 hour each day, if
possible work up to twice daily. There are many sources for
pre-diabetic diets, they will be mostly what you expect...
smaller, more meals, low fat, no fried, minimal dairy, more
whole grain, raw foods, lean meats.
It will also help to use the essential oils. Do a
twice daily routine of oil pulling, preferably with VCO and
I would use Lemongrass and/or On Guard. Also rub oils
on your feet and vita flex points every night. For this use
Cassia, Cinnamon and Wild Orange. Then remember to
drink Lemon every day by adding a drop to each glass of
