My name is Shauna Buxton and
I was born 3 months early. When I was born I weighed 1 lb. 13 oz
And so I've had my own collection
of health conditions all of my life!
One of them is having cerebral palsy so I walk with a walker
and walked with with crutches for 35 years,
but the biggest challenge of my life was
having a headache for 24 years!
In 1988 I had surgery on my spine
to reduce tightness in my muscles
and when I woke up from that surgery I had a headache
and I've had a headache
everyday since… it just never went away!
I went to countless doctors
trying to get help
and encouragement that everything would be ok… we did MRIs
physical therapy, occupational therapy, all kinds of medications,
trying to relieve the pain. My headaches were so bad and I was in so much pain that I
just… I really felt like I was going to die before I was going to get answers.
I was on about twelve to fifteen different medications…
they were using medications to
control the pain, but they had to use other medications to control the side
effects of the meds.
I was put on some Debico, which was a really strong
dose of medication,
and i felt like, to walk with my walker, that I had to push a brick wall to be able to walk…
I didn't have a headache anymore
but I really was spending more time in bed than I was up…
I was hardly spending time with my family!
One day I was looking in the mirror in the bathroom
my face looked distorted and I knew
that I was in big trouble…
I was hallucinating and it was a result of
the medications and I…
I felt like I need to call for help, but I couldn't figure out
how to get a hold of anybody…
I was just not in a good place at that point.
And miraculously my husband called
and my speech was slurred, and so he came home
and told me that I needed to make a choice
I could either um… continue to take the medications, or I could make a choice and
I can choose to have a headache
and be done with the medications… and so we disposed of the medications,
and it wasn't long after
that we discovered doTERRA oils.
In july and friend
from Queen Creek Arizona came
and put doTERRA oils on my
neck and my head, and I felt
so much better! She left the oils with me for 2 days
and um… I felt better than I had
in 24 years!
A few weeks later I went to a class and
used Deep Blue and Past Tense
and I felt better than I had in decades!
I found that if I will
use Deep Blue Rub, and Oregano,
and Frankincense… um… everyday
that I can manage my pain!
I also use Breathe everyday for my lungs
because I have asthma
and it's made a huge difference
in my life. And as long as I follow that regimen, I don't have a headache!
One benefit that I've noticed is that
I have been taking the Lifelong Vitality…
I've taken lots of vitamins over the years
and they usually made me sick to my stomach
and with the Lifelong Vitality I don't
feel sick to my stomach, but I feel a lot more energy!
I have 4 kids and
during my sickest time I was
not involved in their lives… I was spending more time in bed than I was up
and now I am up every single day and able to take them to
dance classes and to um… participate in their various
activities… with soccer and those types of things.
It's changed my life!
To be able to be up with my kids every single day!
And learning how to use the oils on them
has made a huge difference
because using various oils has helped to calm them and help them
to feel healthier!
Through doTERRA, I have
come to realize that I can be healthy and happy and
that there is a lot to look forward to!
My name is Shauna Buxton and doTERRA has changed my life!
