OH MY GOD! Me too!! I am using essential oils and I have cerebral palsy and it has helped immensly! I'm 23 years old. I also do a foot detox with the epsom salt, baking soda and sea salt! It is so cool to see someone else that is going through the same thing! How does it feel to move your toes finally?? I can too after never being able to! They were cold and blue. As someone who also has CP, let me just say that I am so happy for you!! :D I have also taken myself off my muscle relaxers. I think we should exchange notes back and forth. I have so much information. That is so cool :)
Hi Everyone, I'm a 22 year old with Cerebral Palsy and I have seen a massive improvement in my health by using essential oils. Particularly peppermint and lavender. Peppermint can be used with grapeseed or other carrier oils like olive or almond oil to help fight pain and relax spastic muscles. The oils are very potent so you have to dilute them. I have been putting a combination of Frankincense, Lavender, Helicrysum, Cypress, ginger and grapeseed on my hands and feet which now have circulation in them for the first time ever. They used to be blue and freezing cold! And because of the circulation I can now wiggle them! Lavender also helps for sleep and relaxation and I use it frequently as a spray in my house with water as well as applying it topically. Please take this advice if you can! It has done wonders! And I cannot bear the thought of someone being in pain as I always was if I can help.
I also do a detox that is very simple and helps with pain. I mix it up in a bag. All it is, is 1 cup of baking soda, 1 cup sea salt and one cup Epsom Salt. You take a 1 cup measuring cup of that and put it into hot water and soak your feet in it. It pulls toxins and access lactic acid out of your system and relaxes you. You will most likely sleep. Wait for the water to cool completely and sit for about 45 minutes and you will be relaxed. It pulls toxins out of your body that have built up for years.
Please try it. I have taken myself off my muscle relaxers because of doing this. Please take it from someone who knows. My toes are moving for the first time ever!! :)
