OnGuard Beadlets, OnGuard+ Softgels, & lets not forget the classic OnGuard Oil itself!
I have to tell you I was SO impressed with OnGuard the past few weeks! I have always loved OnGuard, but since using the oils I have not *really* had the opportunity to test its true strength because I have been so well! I am going to tell you a story of woe from myself, and a testimonial from a friend of mine where I ran over to play nurse (can’t have a sick buddy when on vacation this weekend!)
So the hubby & I came home from camping and I had a nice sinus infection and being the caring wife that I am, thought Eric would want some of my ick YAY A HOUSE FULL OF BLEGH! So I was using Clary Sage and Breathe and it was helping a lot. I really had no idea what was going on as at the time I just thought my sinuses were clogged. Well the 2nd day of not feeling well I went to the Doctors to get a legit diagnosis so I knew what I was fighting. I went to the doctors and after sitting in a waiting room for 30 minutes I was led to another ‘waiting area’ for my blood pressure & weight. After about 10 minutes of nonsense I was finally brought to my room to see the doctor in. At this point it was already moving in on an hour at the doctors office surrounded by all sorts of sick people and I was getting anxious to get outta there! Well, I was waiting for so long I ended up napping. I was in the room for THIRTY MINUTES before the doctor came in. He was in and out within 10 minutes. I mean yes, its a sinus infection (which I am grateful to know) but the rush he was in followed by the minimal bedside manner just frustrated me.
Ok so now that I am done with my rant on the local GP lets get to the good stuff. Why am I writing this blog today – OnGuard+ Softgels vs Traditional Antibiotics! My husband went the next morning and was diagnosed with a sinus infection as well. However, he is not as diligent with his oils throughout the day so he opted for the antibiotics. Our first real life comparison! (spoiler: I always win!)
Colleen: I am taking two OnGuard+ Softgels in the morning, and using Breathe topically & both of them in the diffuser. I also take 1 OnGuard+ Softgel every 1-3 hours. I am feeling so much better by the end of the day. I got some nose rockets going on, and a nasty cough, BUT I feel great. No achey body, no headaches, just snot & cough – Not only can I handle that, but I am able to do my 2 miles with the dogs AND start back at the gym with a personal trainer! ( If you don’t know me, I am a BIG BABY when I am sick and I haven’t seen the inside of a gym in over a year)
Eric: He is taking his antibiotics as directed. He feels like crap. Achey, sore, exhausted, snot everywhere, coughing – I mean the full works. He comes home from work, barely eats dinner and goes to bed without our TV time or anything! I mean I feel bad for him but he made his choice!
Colleen: So I am on the same regimen, and can’t believe how sick I felt the day before. This is technically the 3rd day from the moment of feeling less than 100%. When I get sinus infections I am usually out for the count for a week or two due to my chronic sinusitis. I am beside myself that I feel so good so soon! I mean I knew it was good stuff but HOT DIGGITY DOG!! The only thing left is a lingering cough. No snots, nothing else, just a cough.
Eric: He is on the mend but very slow going. He is not really feeling any better.
Colleen: I’m walking on sunshineeee eyyy hey! Yup, I am right as rain and ready for a BNI Networking meeting today! I was really pumped to share with them how I kicked my sinus infection in 3 days. Random occasional cough ( like 5 times the whole day) but other than that 100%
Eric: He is functioning better. Still feels crummy, but not totally exhausted 100% of the time. Body ache & headache has lessened. Still snotty and coughing all over.
Colleen: Well, I am kicked butt at the gym and my 2 miles with the dogs. Cleaned up about the house a bit. Got some work done. Yeah, not sure what else to say here – I was totally back to normal
Eric: Energy is returning, headache is gone, Body ache is lingering. Still snotty & coughing all over.
Colleen: Hung out with my nieces today. It was gorgeous outside. Yeah, I <3 OnGuard.
Eric: Energy is back, Ache is gone, still snotty & coughing.
Colleen: Yeah, I am already better dude.
Eric: Much much better! Not 100% but darn close
Colleen: Still good over here
Eric: Finally cleared everything out! YAY He isn’t sick anymore!
Morale of the story? OnGuard is great but OnGuard+ soft gels are AAHHHHMAZING!
Sidenote & Testimonial. I am going to Dragon*Con this weekend, well I am leaving in a few minutes actually. My friend who was coming with was not feeling well. She had ran out of OnGuard so me being awesome went on over to help her feel better. I brought her OnGuard & OnGuard+ Sofgels (because they were made by Unicorns & Leopluradons – google it, you’ll thank me later!). The next morning she messaged me telling me she felt like she normally would have 5 days from then! so YAY No sick people in the car for 12 hours!!
Sooo yeah – OnGuard+ Softgels: If you don’t have them, get them. This is a household staple.
