Parkinson’s disease affects the smooth natural movements
of the body. The most common evidences are tremors or
shaking and walking problems. This happens because the area
of the brain that controls these movements is not getting a
sufficient amount of dopamine, an important chemical
necessary for proper body movements. In those with
Parkinson’s, for some not yet fully known reason, dopamine
is not produced in sufficient quantity.
This is a condition that typically appears after age 50
and is a common nervous system disorder among the elderly.
Rarely is it seen in children and if so there usually seems
to be some genetic link. Parkinson’s may initially have only
slightly noticeable symptoms but it is a progressive disease
and symptoms will slowly become more evident over the years.
Presently there have not been found, in the traditional
scientific community, treatments that halt the disease but
there is help with symptoms and help possibly slowing the
progression. Each of these provide hopeful quality of
Early symptoms might include trembling in a hand or arm,
possible a limp or feeling a foot is not lifting properly,
and maybe a slight lack of expression at times in the face.
The person may have a slower walk than normal and some
difficulty with balance. Advanced symptoms can include
increased trembling, difficulty in movement, constipation,
drooling, muscle pain and possibly anxiety, depression, and
With respect to the early symptoms not everyone with
Parkinson’s shows the trembling symptom and not all that
have trembling symptoms have Parkinson’s. Many with tremors
or trembling with advanced age are suffering from Essential
Tremors and not Parkinson's.

rather something like Peppermint oil.
Experiences and Testimonials of others
Marc- I was visiting with a
gentleman today who is seeking relief from Parkinson’s
Disease. He was hoping Frankincense would give him some
answers. Has anyone had any success/experience
addressing Parkinson’s with oils and how were they used?
Tamalu – In the past I have used a
Neurological Spinal Technique using Balance, Frankincense,
Myrrh, White Fir and Peppermint. With the new introduction
of Dr. Hill’s AromaTouch Technique I intend to use this with
those oils for future neurological issues. There may be
occasionally exceptions or other oils required depending on
the person. . The key is to get the oils on people-- they
will do the job, sometimes in spite of us. They are so smart
in promoting healing.
Also consider Frankincense under the tongue, and the
daily supplements using the Wellness Pack is a must.
Foggynmisty - So, if I understand
correctly, Frankincense and Myrrh would be added to Step 2
and White Fir added to Step 3 in the AromaTouch Technique?
And of course Balance and Peppermint are used as normal.
Pat - Dr. Hill said at our AromaTouch
Technique training that we could substitute certain oils
according to the needs of the person.
Jamie Sue - Does
anyone have any experience with using the oils on someone
with Parkinson's? If so, please tell me what you used and
how it helped. I have a lady whose husband has Parkinson's.
She gives him these vitamins from "Dr. Barefoot" (anyone
heard of him?): Vitamin D, Oxy Supreme, and Coral Calcium
Supreme. She is concerned about how the oils and possibly
LLV will interact with those supplements and also his meds (Segeline,
Carb/Levo, Lovastatin, Ropinirole, and his Thyroid pill).
Alisse - I have only had one experience
with Parkinson's, it was with my grandpa. His Parkinson's
wasn't super advanced, but enough that he was wheelchair
bound and he was often frustrated when he couldn't
coordinate or control using his hands, etc. I live 3 hours
away from him but was visiting every other week. One day he
was very out of sorts. They were cleaning his room at the
care center which had disrupted his schedule and he was
sleepy but couldn't go and lie down. As soon as I got there
I could see that his shaking was worse than usual. He
didn't want to talk but he said his hands were cold. I
rubbed Lavender onto my hands and held his hands in mine.
Almost instantly I felt him relax; he was able to doze off
in his chair for about 30 minutes until he could use his
This was my first time just grabbing an oil and using it
without reading and researching first. When I think back on
how powerful the experience was I get emotional; this was a
choice time I spent with my grandpa one week before he
passed away in his sleep. I had kept this experience to
myself until my mom asked me if I had used oils on grandpa.
She said a family member of a another resident had seen me
with him that day and wanted to know what I had done to calm
I know this post won't help to cure the Parkinson's or
even slow its progress, I guess I just wanted to share a
powerful experience I had healing someone if only for that
minute in their life; as well as the power of our intuition
with the oils.
Arin - I have a
friend with Parkinson’s and I am recommending Frankincense
and AromaTouch technique. Any other ideas?
Elaine – LLV is a must for Parkinson’s.
Suemarie - I'm
looking for some information on how to use doTERRA oil's
to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Pat - I do not have any personal
testimonials on Parkinson’s but the protocol that I have
seen is the LLV, with the GX Assist/PB Assist cleanse, and
Frankincense applied to the spine, crown chakra (top of
head) and 2 drops under the tongue twice a day. I would like
to hear his testimonial after using this protocol for three
Editorial comment –
Researching other sources for help with Parkinson’s there
are some comments about 2 helpful protocols. Those
using Young Living oils speak of a Neuro-Auricular Technique
where certain oils are applied on reflexology points and
along the spine. This is similar to, but a little
different, than Dr. Hill’s AromaTouch Technique.
Another protocol mentioned is using vitex essential oil that
comes from the chaste tree. Below are some excerpts:
“reversing the effects for issues such as Parkinson's
Disease by applying Frankincense, Valerian,, Vetiver, Roman
Chamomile, Cedarwood and Sandalwood therapeutic grade
essential oils in the NAT procedure”
"In Europe the essential oil Vitex, which is derived from
the chase tree, is used to treat Parkinsonism. According to
the French physical Dr. Jean Claude LaPraz, he has observed
an 89 percent success rate in reversing the symptoms of this
dreaded disease. He recommended inhaling Vitex and applying
it to the spine and soles of the feet."
