How She Thinks

Gary Young, Young Living Oils, Fraud

[update: I was sent a letter from Ryan Bell, a lawyer from Utah [ lol of course ] to take down this article. So I am rewriting it. They represent “Renouveler, LLC a Delaware Limited Liability Company and the owner of the article about Gary Young.’ The letter will be at the end of this re-write as soon as I can transfer it from the other site] [[ I have no idea when I published this the first time. will update when I find the letter]]


Gary Young, you could call him a cult leader. Remember Jim Jones in Guyana?  All cult leaders are said to have charisma, charm, leadership abilities.

Apparently, there have been various and sundry people doing investigative reports on Gary Young and it’s all over the web, but this particular article that has facts and figures and a bibliography, the people at Renouveler LLC want off the web. So I’m re-doing it. There is NO WAY they can force everyone who is not a sheeple from doing their own research and publishing what they find.

There have been numerous accounts of Gary Young not being a naturopath as he claimed, not having a college degree as he claimed and there are facts to back it up. But as you can read by the lawyer letter below, I have been forced to take it down. 

  1. Gary Young, [forced to remove the N.D. after his name after being called on it by the State of Utah because he never was one] was born in…none other than UTAH [pretty State] and is said to have moved to BC and then married his first wife. Other accounts on the web have said she got pg and he wanted her to have the baby in a small pool and she was in agreement at first, then changed her mind. He forced her to do it and held the baby  under water too long and the baby drowned. But THAT info has also been taken off the web or buried so deep it would take days to find it.  

According to different sources, ole Gary got hit in the had and was allegedly paralyzed and in a wheelchair and lo and behold! Essential oils healed him!! [If this were true, eo’s would heal everyone] 

Not only that, but eventually he ran a half-marathaon, all thru the power of…yep, you guessed it, essential oils and nothing else. WOW

This description suggests that before this ‘man’ embarked on his health-related career, he was mentally unstable and possibly even brain-damaged. I have never seen ANYTHING that substantiates ANY claim of this MLM ‘superpower’. 

By 1981, Gary Young has moved to Washington State and opened a ‘health club’. This is where he killed his wife’s baby by delivering her of it, with no training, in a whirlpool bath at the health club. He left the baby under water, causing the death of an apparently healthy infant on September 4, 1982. Although the coroner said that the baby would have lived if she had been delivered in a conventional manner, this person was never charged in that case. My question is, WHY NOT? But it was Utah and they have strange ‘rules’ there. This guy’s alleged plans for an underwater delivery the previous year allegedly had been thwarted when a health department caseworker threatened to prosecute him if he followed through with the plan. But we’ll never know for sure if ANY of this is true, because everyone is being silenced and all articles pertaining to anything about this not- young -but- old guy are being sued out of existence. 

Sometime in 1983, this essential oil guy was allegedly arrested in Washington State for practicing medicine without a license. There was a prosecuting attorney, so one would think this could be looked up in the early part of the year in 1983.

Allegedly this guy pled guilty and was sentenced to probation and then moved out of country, to the border country where all the illegals are pouring in to the USA from. He divorced his first wife and married again. 

He did dastardly things down there, lying, cheating, you know the type. [he shoulda been a a lawyer, but you have to go to school AND pass a bar examine, no cheating to do that, this guy would NEVER be able to muster that] 

He came back to the States, cheated again for practicing medicine without a license [allegedly you know, of course], divorced the second wife and married a new unsuspecting person. [or maybe not] 

After leaving Calif, this guy was said to live in Nevada, different cities in Washington State, Idaho and then started his latest venture, telling people to drop pure essential oils straight on the skin, that people could ingest essential oils and these oils would heal them and the FDA does nothing about it. Gads. Can we say ‘back pocket’? he claims only his essential oils are pure that all others are not and only his are ‘therapeutic’ and no others are and people fall for it. 

This guy lies, cheats, scams and his reward and judgement are coming. NO ONE gets away with all this unscathed. This guy states he’s ‘earned’ degrees, was invited to speak at places like Turkey, all lies. He’s never been licensed as a naturopath in any USA State. 

Site after site reports there are no medical records of Gary Young’s alleged injury. NONE.  After a doctor complained to the Utah Dept of some sort of registration for doctors, Young Living removed the title N.D. and references to Young as a naturopath from the its Web site, but this misleading information is said to still appear all over the web on distributor web sites.

Young’s mail-order “degree” does not entitle him to become licensed in the state of Utah [17]. Actually, he would have no reason to acquire a license because in Utah it is illegal for a licensed naturopath to “own, directly or indirectly, a retail store, wholesaler, distributor, manufacturer, or facility of any other kind located in this state that is engaged in the sale, dispensing, delivery, distribution, or manufacture of homeopathic remedies, dietary supplements, or natural medicines.”  Just ask Steven Horne, Master Herbalist or look it up, it’s true. 

What about Young’s claim to be an authority on essential oils? The publisher of the Journal of Essential Oils (JEOR) has confirmed that Young “co-authored” [important term there] at least one paper in the JEOR. The publisher also pointed out that the JEOR did not verify his credentials. The JEOR deals only with the basic science of essential oils, not with their clinical application, medicinal or otherwise.

Several true experts in the field of essential oils, know Young to be a fraud, a liar and a cheat. Just look up the name on the web. There are also links below.

Young apparently put out a cassette tape [remember those?] called ‘The Missing Link’ telling people to do ingest essential oils. I have a group on LinkedIn and Facebook regarding essential oils and on LinkedIn ALL the eo experts are on it. Every last one of them says Gary Young’s teachings are incorrect and should not be done. But we have sheeple.

 This tape is said to summarize Young’s bizarre notions about the healing powers of essential oils, they say it is his manifesto. The experts concurred that his ideas are pure junk science. 

In 1998, Butch Owen, an American essential oils exporter living and working in Turkey, investigated Young’s claims of Turkish credentials and found them to be unsubstantiated. [You can’t make me take THIS down, I knew Butch back then and I remember Butch telling his group this. Butch was always talking about the truth regarding essential oils and who tells the untruths] BUTCH SAID he learned from Professor Dr. Mustafa Keviz, a lecturer on the Agricultural and Plants faculty of Anadolu University, stated that Gary Young had never given any lectures there. The United Nations Development Organization never sponsored Young or invited him to speak. He showed up uninvited and convinced some officials to permit him to present on two topics. Professor Dr. K. Husnu Can Basar (then director of the Medical and Aromatic Plant and Drug Research Center, Anadolu University) described Young’s presentation as inconsequential. Butch said he told Dr. Briggs. 

There was a FATAL ‘accident’  by someone using a still allegedly made by Gary Young. There was an investigation and he was fined money and hit up with safety violations.  

PEOPLE, THE LISTS GO ON AND ON AND ON. IF YOU really want the truth, start researching. I had one Young Living Oils seller and follower tell me, ‘I don’t care if it’s on the internet, if I don’t see something in print in front of me, I won’t believe it. I’ve met Gary Young and he’s as nice as can be and I won’t believe anything bad about him’. Have you ever heard of survival of the fittest? Or NATURAL selection? SHEEPLE!

YLEO’s November 2002 catalog includes a BUNCH of stuff. The company justifies high prices by claiming that its products are purer than those of its competitors, but it provides no comparative information to support these assertions. The names of many products could mislead consumers by implying clinical effects where none exist. Examples include Brain Power to “clarify and support concentration,” ImmuPower “for building, strengthening and protecting the body,” and Thyromin to “maximize nutritional support to the thyroid.” [although they have been slapped down by the FDA demanding they stop such false advertising. Purportedly they have been ordered to stop telling their sheeple they are aromatherapists and they are not allowed anymore to say their essential oils heal or do similar. However, these people STILL do this. I’ve experienced it in my research]. 

Just how in the world do they get away with it? And WHY is Renouveler LLC buying copyrights on things other people write about Gary Young? WHY is it, as THEY say, ‘causing irreparable harm’ to them? HOW? 

Oh please, you threaten me with removing this site? Grow up people, that’s not a threat. So you wanted that specific article down? It’s down. Now people are wondering why and who Renouveler LLC is. You might not have wanted that sort of scrutiny.
