Thank you for visiting this site and learning more about doESSENTIALS!
My name is Jon Graham and my family is the reason I use essential oils and they are also the reason I want to teach and share the benefits of the oils with everyone.
You see, pain has been a constant companion for much of my life. So much so that I never really gave thought as to what was causing the pain – I thought it was just part of life and accepted it.
Only after I returned from an extremely stressful deployment to Iraq in 2003-04, diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, given several medications to manage the pain, and underwent two Medical Evaluation Boards (both of which recommended an early separation or medical retirement from the U.S. Army) did I begin to think about what was causing the pain – if I could find the cause, I could stop the pain.
I wrote about my experience with Fibromyalgia here, so I won’t rehash it on this page.
So, let’s fast forward to 2010 – a family friend introduced my wife to essential oils. She commenced to experimented a bit (a lot, really) with the different oils on all of us – the kids loved the oils, and I was amazed that they worked.
They worked so well for me that I have been able to do things recently that I had been able to do in over 10 years – running for more than 100 yards without getting a headache.
In fact, at the time of writing this page, I had just completed my first ever Sprint Triathlon. I wasn’t the fastest guy on the course, but I did finish.
I am glad you asked such a great question!
I do not consider myself an expert on essential oils in any way. I do not have any certifications, degrees, or any type of sealed official parchment that declares to the world that I am an expert in this area.
My background is as officer in the U.S. Army with over 20 years of active service. Nothing in those years of service, except developing certain chronic health conditions, qualifies me as an essential oil expert.
What I am is a regular guy who has taken the time to research, experiment, and learn for myself the power of using essential oils, and I simply want to share with you (and everyone else) what I learn.
And that, of course, is the mission of doESSENTIALS and this site: to share the benefits of essential oils to all.
Well, that is everything about me and doESSENTIALS. Thank you again for visiting the site.
