True doTerra Tesimonial:
Written by Holan Nakata
I met David Johannes in 2009. I met him through a couple Reedson and Rosina Edwin who happened to run into my store and we discussed alternative health. Rosina experienced great results so Reedson introduced David to Howard Nakata and me.
At the time David was on 19 medications with diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid issues and had renal failure with dialysis. It was my start of learning the importance of living healthy, how painful diabetes is and how it affects the people around and also emotions. He was unable to walk for the most part, using a wheelchair whenever I saw him.
David’s family and our family became friends. That’s the beauty of direct sales and health, the relationship goes beyond seller buyer. We were invited to family events and parties.
It’s amazing what hope alternative health can bring. Although western medicine has the ability to keep a person alive, sometimes it does not bring back the quality of life. In addition to a deteriorating health, a little bit of dignity fades away.
David took control of his health changing the way he ate, and took natural supplements. I saw the love of his family who also made the changes in their diet and routine to match David’s even when healthy. I found that families that work as one experience great results.
David’s diabetes, blood pressure was under control, and other vitals returned. The doctor relieved him from 19 medications to two medications for his kidney. David was able to travel to Kosrae off dialysis for a week to see his mother. Sometimes, he would walk with a walker, a cane, with an unsteady gait.
As he awaits a kidney transplant, David continues to live healthy.
Howard Nakata introduced doTERRA to David in 2010. With great results that David had so far, he took a look at doTERRA and saw the emotional help it can make. It wasn’t until February 2011, when Dr. David Hill came to teach the Aroma Touch.
It was a special class, Dr. Hill wanted to share the Neuropathy Technique as he had family members who had diabetes.
Dr. David Hill asked for volunteers that were diabetic with diabetes. The first person who volunteered was borderline diabetes and still had circulation and could not be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the oils.
The following is a video of David Johannes surprising guest and family walking strong to share doTERRA essential oils:
People on our team volunteered David Johannes. It was there I learned about neuropathy that causes numbness, or tingling, or the ability to not feel. Dr. Hill also showed that diabetes affected circulation, in addition to seeing discoloration, people went up to feel how hard the calves were.
Without circulation, it is difficult for a wound to heal or to fight off infection. It is for this reason, thousands of diabetics every year lose their limbs, something David Johannes knows all too well, losing one leg.
After Dr. David Hill used the Neuropathy Technique for ten minutes on David. You could see color of his legs come back. They called the people to feel his calf and it and is was soft. David who went to the class on a wheelchair was able to walk with a steady gait without a cane because he could actually feel his steps. From that day, his family continued to do the technique and his walking improved.
What impacted David was not only the technique but the care that Dr. Hill showed, he showed genuine concern and compassion. He was especially moved when Dr. Hill said do not charge for this technique as people that have diabetes have a hard enough time.
David says that he walks to the park with his newborn daughter. People go up to him and ask “Weren’t that the guy on the wheelchair?” Now David looks forward to fathering his daughter, and maintaining health is beyond him but for those around him.
doTERRA gave him more than an ability to walk. It gave him love, hope, dignity, and a mission to share with others.
This was when I told myself, doTERRA is a company I can support with a mission I can share for the rest of my life.
This was a beginning of a start of a multitude of testimonies of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils and how it is important to have 100% Pure Essential Oils with therapeutic value. The results show that there is a difference in CPTG Essential Oils.
