I have to say that Doterrs's Myrrh Essential Oil is one of my favorites because it played a major part in provided a great miracle in my life. I have had Hypothyroidism for 10 years and have been on medication to treat it. All my doctors convinced me that I would be on this medication for the rest of my life. I felt like it was a life-sentence that could not be cured.
With all medications come unpleasant side effects which brought me to my knees in search for help. I prayed that my dear Heavenly Father would HEAL my thyroid, although the medical community deemed it impossible.
With the help of Isagenix I was able to cut my medication in half, which was a wonderful blessing. But the healing halted there and I needed more. Again with prayer and gratitude, I offered up the desires of my heart to be completely healed from this condition and to know where and how I might obtain this healing. A few days later I was introduced to Doterra Essential Oils, which I skeptically began to try, one by one. I noticed improvements and saw the power that they held as I treated many illnesses in my family.
So with faith I started to follow the protocol for hypothyroid with essential oil. I felt really good for a time, and then I began to feel WORSE. I went into the doctor and found with blood tests that I was being over-medicated. My dosage was cut once again. This happened a few more times, and I found that I had to only take my thyroid medicine every other day, and then every 3 days. Long story short, I am completely off all my thyroid medication now and my numbers are exactly where they should be. True Story!!!!
I think its amazing that as recorded in the scriptures, the 3 wise men chose to bring 3 gifts to the Savior of mankind. They could have chosen anything, but they brought Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. Certainly these very wise men must have known the great value these plants had and how they would allow the Savior of the world to complete his great mission upon the earth with greater capacity. It was also a great gift to Mary ......as Myrrh was a wonderful healer of scars (stretch marks from pregnancy). That was super thoughtful....don't cha think?
Myrrh was one of the very first gifts the Savior received while on earth, and it was also one of the last. He also received it several times in between. He was anointed with it by three different woman 3 different times on 3 different areas of his body.
When Jesus was about to be nailed to the cross, the Romans thought that adding a little Myrrh to wine would make it less inebriating and less likely to produce drunkenness. They also claimed that drinking Myrrh in wine would alleviate arthritis. (Mark 15:23). His disciples also anointed the Saviors body with Myrrh for burial.
Myrrh is by far, the most mentioned oil of all the herbs in the Bible (153 times), with Frankincense in second place (81). It is the first to be mentioned in Genesis 37:25 and the last (along with frankincense) in Revelations 18:13. The Greek translation for Myrrh in the New Testament is Smurna, Smurnizo and Muron......just in case your wondering...lol!
Myrrh has a very high ORAC value of 3,193,813. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) is a scale developed to measure the antioxidant capabilities of many foods, juices and oils. The higher the ORAC score, the more capable that particular food is at destroying free radicals. Check out the ORAC values of foods versus pure therapeutic grade essential oils....
Myrrh also has one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes available. Sesquiterpenes are a class of compounds that have a direct effect on the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and amygdala, which is the seat of our emotions. Myrrh is one of those synergistic oils that enhances the qualities of any oil with which it is mixed. It is a wonderful healing oil on its own, and also one of the most versatile. It is an antiseptic, supports the immune system, an excellent relaxant and stress reliever, it soothes the skin and is oxygenating to the body tissues as well as mood elevating. The Egyptians used Myrrh for everything from birth to death and found it to be an effective protection from the desert heat, as well as a great insect repellent.
I am so thankful for this oil and thankful for the scriptures that truly give us the tools to heal our bodies the way God intended us to......... without side effects.
This is my own personal story and I can not guarantee the same results for everyone, because we are all different. I do believe, however, that what ever the matter, the Lord has the answers and healing is found in and through only Him.
