Mr. Leg is pretty happy. I began using DoTerra essentail oils on him ASAP after my fall Saturday morning. I have been applying them at least four times a day. I have been using oils that should help with muscle, bone, tendon and ligament damage (I really wrenched it!). The ones I have layered are frankincense, Aromatouch, marjoram, lemongrass and some wintergreen for bones. Monday I began putting DoTerra's fractionated coconut oil on my leg before applying the oils. Sometimes I add some geranium for bruising. Starting Monday I have noticed more healing each day. I have also been on 2 ibuprofen 4 times a day. My progress has been amazing.
My slow hobbling with a cane has become a slow, funky walk with no cane. Today I can get my walking shoes on again, and I can climb (not descend) steps normally. I spent about one hour on my feet in a huge grocery store this morning, slowly walking with my cart. I tired out, but the walking seemd to be good for my leg. I spent half an hour driving (yeah!). When I got home I took a nap to rest my leg. He is doing fine.
I'm pretty excited....maybe I can begin walking the dog again, carefully and slowly with gentle stretching (I'm being careful). I just have to move.....I'm getting stir crazy!
