Hello everyone! My name is Carolanne and I'm a wife, stay at home mom, musician and college student. I started researching herbal products when I began to realize more and more that in order for pharmaceutical companies to produce synthetic medicine, they had to first study the 'real things' found in nature. Additionally, I found that I had a sensitivity to many synthetic medicines. Many times I would get the rare or little reported side effects of a drug, whether it was over the counter or pharmaceutical grade. It wasn't long before I started cataloging what happens to me when I take certain things in an effort to promote soundness in my body and mind. My one regret is that I am just recently realizing what I have learned about myself could help others. It is for this reason I have made the decision to become a reviewer at iHerb.com in addition to the fact that they have provided me outstanding service and product quality for more than 3 years.

Life Changing

Posted on Jul 31, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

This product is really helping me with recovering from a severe systemic yeast infection. After taking 1mg of Estradiol for a nearly 2 years following surgical menopause, some internet research revealed to me that pill causes yeast infection in 100% of women over 40 that use it for estrogen replacement. Candex really has come to my rescue. It has helped me with that all-over, deep itch that makes me want to scream and scratch my skin off and the patches on my legs have faded considerably. It should also be noted that I've eliminated yeast products (and any foods that feed yeast; too many carbs, sugar etc.) from my meals. As the yeast in my system died (I could tell because my legs were getting better as was that internal, unscrtachable itch everywhere at night), I noticed my cravings for carbs and/or simple sugars skyrocketed, I'm sure a ploy to feed the yeast so it can rise up and grow out of control again! That being the case I would advise you to pay attention to what you put back into your body as you kill the yeast. The feeling of wanting carbs can be so strong you may even consider using an appetite suppressant until you are free and clear of systemic yeast. Really, good product and I'm so glad I found it. Other yeast products I used paled by comparison. I will be purchasing again and again until I am fully recovered.

I had never heard of this product until a segment on a well-known television program. I have been taking it since May and I know my heart is stronger because of the difference in my circulation. My hands, calves and feet used to be cold and kind of gaunt looking. Now they look healthy and pink again like when I was younger! My husband was first to notice! I will be buying this product for as long as I need it! Of that I am sure!

Helped with Night Sweats

Posted on Oct 01, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I take 2 capsules before bed with a warm cup of water. I figure I can make tea out of them in my stomach and bypass staining my teeth. They ease my night sweats. I went off of them for a very long time and came back to them. Like many herbs, I think they body gets used to them over time, so I stop for a few days ever so often, then begin again.

Relaxing

Posted on Jul 31, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

What a nice surprise! I dump two out of their capsules at night and take them right before bed. I notice that I feel relaxed through the night. The next day I am more calm as well. This may have been an off-target hope, but I was hoping it would help with weight loss. Maybe they will over time since better quality sleep is an essential step in the right direction to weight loss and overall health.

Little Effect

Posted on Oct 01, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Taking one, twice per day, I could not really tell if these were giving me a mental lift of any kind. To get Satiereal, I prefer Hunger Chews. See my review. I probably will not purchase this brand again.

Great company!

Bitter orange is great and inexpensive compared to other products I've tried for fat buring. My problem is I don't need an appetite suppressant. I only need a fat burner, but had not been able to find one that didn't contain some kind of appetite suppressant. This product caused me no side affects. I had no jitters or rapid heartbeat and I am very sensative to most medicine and herbal products, usually ending up at the negative end of the 'side effects' spectrum. Anyway, I could hardly believe how fast my product arrived! I also loved that the price was low and the shipping and handling charge wasn't hiked up! THAT I GREATLY appreciated! I will continue to order from this company. They are the most cost effective herbal company I've found in 9 years of internet shopping! Thanks for making your service affordable! I'll let you know how the weight loss goes at a later date.

Good and relaxing!

Posted on Sep 02, 2014

I saw this product on a medical show's segment and decided to try it for pain during the night. Without even a full dose I felt relaxed and pain free. But I am sure that dosage and results will vary from person to person. This is something I will keep in my medicine cabinet and my first aid kit. Far safer than Aspirin! Update: A few days ago I took the full dose at night and still had no hangover effect, rather awoke feeling fresh and energetic. I'm glad to have found this product and glad my local health food store carries it for emergency purchases.

Definite Difference

Posted on Sep 02, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

I am taking this along with Berber vcaps by Thorne Research group and there is a definite difference in my immune system since following an eating and immune repair program I saw on a medical show's segment a few months ago. I have tried many programs without success, but this one is working for me. I'm down to a size 12 from a 14-16. It will become a staple in my cabinet! Also, I noticed my thyroid gland is no longer enlarged after a month of following the program! Thank goodness because I was tired of my hair falling out and sudden muscle weakness. It's good to feel well!

Eczema Assist

Posted on Jul 04, 2011

2 people found the following review helpful

I've been using this about twice a day along with other internally ingested essential oils to help treat a severe run of eczema that came from out of nowhere and is threatening to consume my legs and arms. Sometimes I forget and only take one of each oil (fish oil, evening primrose oil, vitamin e oil, flax seed oil and garlic oil). I've also stopped eating processed sugar and can say the itching, burning and purplish-brown color has lightened considerably, though I'm not sure which thing should get credit, I'm sure all things helped colaboratively. I can also say I was taking other things, but the itching, burning and discoloration didn't subside until I added the evening primrose oil. I've been using this combination of oils for about 10 days.

Good

Posted on Sep 02, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

It's not the best estrogen supplement I have ever had, but it is good. There is another I like better, but this one is cheaper. I combine this with progesterone cream. I now get 'warm' rather than 'hot', and not very often. I gave it three stars because it is not as potent as the other brand I like. However, because the brand of progesterone I use also contains phytoestrogens, this one does the job nicely.

I really like this product! I use it for hand sanitizer on the go (I read somewhere that waste treatment plants are starting to use it to treat drinking water), I put a few drops in an empty capsule and have it with milk (just to guard my stomach) when I'm not feeling well. I also put two or three drops in my hand with a little cleanser and baking soda to keep away the flaky patches that can build up on my face (no it doesn't burn). My most recent use has been to add a drop or two to the bottom part of my Britta water pitcher filter (I have the two gallon one) just to make sure the water is completely sanitized.

Restored Flexibility in Dry Hair

Posted on Feb 04, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

I really liked this conditioner from the first application! I've had a lot of trouble with dry hair due to hormonal changes and medications. (Note: I am now off all pharmaceutical hormone replacements.) This conditioner gave me instant moisture and elasticity, especially when applied to each section just before flat ironing. A little goes a long way. I am so glad I found the Giovanni line and that the products are all natural because I've been slowly moving away from chemicals both internally and externally. This is a good addition to my natural health regime.
