A candid conversation with Young Living founder Gary Young about what he is doing for our veterans

This company and the founder, Gary Young, are really very very special. All he cares about is making the oils better and helping people. That is his whole mission in life. I had lunch with him (at his table 2 feet away) and sat near him on the bus home as he told us stories (2 feet away). He said that we have a very important purpose to share these oils with the world. I feel that in my core. This is what I’m supposed to do. This is how I can really help people and have a major positive impact on the world. Gary made me laugh really hard today (giving our table the secret recipe to you-know) and made us cry as he told us about helping people in Somalia and curing vets of PTSD. He has a great sense of humor and a wonderful heart. I want you to know this because I want you to KNOW that you are working for/with a VERY fine company with high morals. Gary recently took a million dollar loss on some bad spruce because he had to toss it because it wasn’t up to standards (and why Valor is still out of stock). He refused to compromise. This is someone with very high integrity who won’t settle for anything than the best. But I could just see he loves people. He looked us in the eyes and listened to us and sat with us and answered our questions. I really and truly hope that you will all meet him very soon.
I found out his wife, Mary, couldn’t have kids and then started using oils and had two boys in her 50’s. One of them was there with us today (he’s 10 and Gary is 65). Holy macanoli! If that doesn’t convince you of the power of these oils nothing will.
He put them on three vets over the course of five days. By the end of the fifth night they were sleeping through the night without nightmares, were ready to resume day to day activities and they said they had hope for the future. The vets are part of a program called Vets For Vets based in Texas and said they’re taking the oils to Washington because they need to be used in the military.
Here is the protocol that Gary Young told us in Hawaii to follow for PTSD.
Here’s the regimen:
Valor (on the feet when they wake up and when they go to bed)
Harmony (on the feet)
Joy (over the heart)
Inner Child (VERY IMPORTANT – around the navel, chest and anywhere)
Forgiveness (over the heart and over the liver)
Trauma Life (everywhere) Release (over the liver)
Lavender (for sleep on the feet and diffusing)
Peace and Calming (for sleep on the feet and diffusing
