hai all,

So those who follow me on the Twitter know I have been sick for over a month now. I've lost 15 lbs at this point and am on the blandest of diets. On a good day I wake up without nausea but malaise is daily for me. I'm on ativan now because this whole thing has created some of the worst anxiety I've ever had. I have been to doctors 10 times in 7 weeks, and nothing is showing in the blood work or other labs. Next week I go in for imaging. So far it is not celiacs or crohns and most likely not a parasite...

Anyway I was sitting next to a kindly old man on the plane home from a conference and he worked for an essential oil company in the research facility. He handed me Frankincense and OnGuard and told me to try them. They might help with both the anxiety and the possible bug in my gut. Does anyone have any experience with essential oils? Are they effective? Or do they just smell really good?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts. ( no worries still going to doctors and whatnot because I really want to know what is wrong with me)
