Hello there and thanks for "hopping" by! I have several health concerns and I'm always on the lookout for natural treatments and cures. I live a vegan lifestyle, so I'm always researching the ingredients and animal testing status of various products. I love helping people make the best choices for their health and well-being. I hope that my experiences with natural products will help you make well-informed purchases.

My Reviews

Good Cleanse

Posted by rabbit on Aug 29, 2012

I didn't see any parasites, but this was a good cleanse nonetheless. It is a brown liquid that smells herbal and tastes strong and sweet. The taste isn't bad and grows on you over time, but it's definitely good to have a glass of water to chase it down. Sometimes it gave me a little heartburn. As another reviewer mentioned, there is something strangely addictive about it. I felt myself craving it each day, but for no identifiable reason. After you take it, it makes you feel a little hot in the forehead, almost mildly feverish, but that goes away after several minutes. I felt very clear-headed throughout this cleanse, as something about the formula lifted the fogginess from my thought processing. I don't recommend taking the Quick Colon Capsules which are recommended in the instructions because they didn't work very well for me. They contain senna and many people say that senna is not such a good thing because your bowels become dependent on it. Try agar agar instead. Not sure if this formula removed any parasites, but it did give me the benefits of a cleanse. I felt cleaner and clearer both during and after the process was over.

The most noticeable effect from taking this was that it made my skin glow. Physically, it felt like a cleanse and it gave me more energy. Mentally, I felt happier and more clear-headed.

Risk of Causing Gastritis

Posted by rabbit on Aug 09, 2012

Recently, I was under a great deal of stress and was having constant pain in my upper abdomen. The pain started a few months after I began taking Potassium Gluconate, which I later learned can cause gastritis. I am not sure if it was the Potassium Gluconate, stress, something else, or a combination of things that caused my pain, but I recommend using caution before taking this product. For anyone who might be suffering from gastritis or stomach pain, I stopped taking the Potassium Gluconate and started taking licorice (DGL), Doctor's Best PepZinGI, mastic gum, slippery elm, and acidophilus. This combination significantly soothed the pain I was having. I am no longer having those pains, so whatever it was must have healed. I bought the Potassium Gluconate because I get dehydrated easily from frequent urination. Instead, I recommend drinking coconut water for dehydration and for the replenishment of electrolytes.

Creates a Relaxed State of Well-Being

Posted by rabbit on Aug 29, 2012

I have symptoms which indicate that I may have problems with my thyroid, so based on my research, I take this selenium along with iodine. I started taking selenium soon after I discovered iodine. I must have been iodine deficient because the first time I took an iodine supplement, within minutes, I began to feel an overwhelming feeling of well-being, relaxation, and euphoria. I immediately felt better than I had since I was a kid. I could breathe so much easier and my mind felt clear and happy. I couldn't believe that something so simple could make me feel so much better so fast. It was such a relief! I am vegan, so I don't eat fish and I rarely eat seaweed products. I had no idea that iodine was so important. It has really lessened my symptoms of hypothyroidism. Do your research on Hashimoto's thyroiditis before using iodine as a treatment because it is not always recommended for this autoimmune disorder and has also been thought to trigger it. However, selenium has been said to counter this and protect the thyroid while taking iodine, so do your research and make up your own mind. You may only need to take selenium. I now use a stronger variety of iodine as both a supplement and as an antibiotic alternative. After I started taking the stronger variety, I had a cyst burst which was very painful. I think the cyst burst because iodine is known to shrink cysts and rid the body of them entirely in some cases. I am glad that the cyst burst because it was causing some pain, but with it came the risk of infection. I couldn't really afford to go to the doctor, so I increased my regular dose of iodine to protect me from getting an infection. I've felt fine since. Some people have even used iodine to cure their cancer! If you don't eat fish or ocean-based products, be sure you are getting enough of this crucial vitamin. After I started taking selenium with the iodine, I feel even better. I feel even more relaxed and at ease, especially right after taking the supplement.

Keeps Gallbladder Attacks Away!

Posted by rabbit on Aug 29, 2012

Seriously, I could not live without this stuff. I have gallstones and have had several gallbladder attacks. They are extremely painful. Every month or two, I notice a dull ache under my rib cage on my right side. When I notice that, I start taking one capsule before mealtimes. If I forget to take one before the meal, I take one after the meal anyway. Within a few days, I notice that the ache starts to subside. After that happens, I'm usually pretty confident that I won't have a gallbladder attack. I only take one capsule at a time because whenever I take two, I get a headache. The exception to that rule was when I took four capsules at one time during an attack and it seemed to help the stone pass faster. The pain of the attack would mask the pain of any potential headache anyway. I'm so glad that I discovered these before following the traditional "treatment" of having my gallbladder removed. Dr. Christopher's is the cheapest brand I've found, but they certainly don't skimp on quality.

Best Vegan Omega-3!

Posted by rabbit on Aug 29, 2012

This formula gives you the most for your money. I've bought other vegan brands with almost half the amount of omega-3's and half the number of capsules at almost twice the price. In one brand, the capsules broke and I had a fishy-smelling, oily mess for months. The capsules used by this brand are sturdy. No breakage and no fishy smell. Unlike most fish oil, this supplement is guaranteed mercury-free because it is made from algae in a controlled environment outside of the ocean. Many brands only give you DHA, but this brand also gives you EPA which is essential in controlling the body's inflammatory response and regulating depression. Some medical associations for cardiac health recommend taking up to 1000 mg a day for heart health. I take two of them at a time whenever I have a migraine. At the very least, it seems to really help in reducing the pain, but on more than one occasion, it has eliminated my migraine entirely within 10-20 minutes.

Great Gelatin Replacement

Posted by rabbit on Sep 05, 2012

Agar is a really great gelatin replacement. It works as a thickening agent for cold foods, but will melt again when exposed to heat. This makes it perfect for vegan cheeses, gel desserts similar to Jello, pudding, and gummy candies. It contains both calcium and iron, which helps if you are a vegan trying to incorporate these essential vitamins into your diet. Agar has become a staple in my pantry.

Great for Sensitive Teeth!

Posted by rabbit on Aug 09, 2012

Jason makes the best toothpaste. I alternate between this and their regular whitening Power Smile variety. I always keep this on hand and I use it when my teeth are feeling more sensitive than usual. It works great and soothes my sensitivities to hot, cold, and sweet. The flavor is quite pleasant. It's a nice change from the usual full-blast of mint. The berry flavor is the dominant flavor, but there is just enough mint to freshen your breath. It whitens teeth like no toothpaste I've ever used. My teeth are so white after just one brushing. Great toothpaste - highly recommend.

Relieves Stomach Pain and Helps During Gallbladder Attack

Posted by rabbit on Aug 16, 2012

Recently, I was under a great deal of stress and was having constant pain in my upper abdomen. I am not sure what it was, but it felt like it might be pain from gastritis, ulcers, and/or hiatal hernia. The pain started a few months after I began taking Potassium Gluconate, which I later learned can cause gastritis. I started taking this slippery elm supplement along with mastic gum, licorice (DGL), Doctor's Best PepZinGI, and acidophilus. It significantly soothed the pain I was having. I am no longer having those pains, so whatever it was must have healed. Whenever it feels like my food may have been too acidic and I start to feel a mild ache or burning pain, this is the first supplement I take. I have also taken it during a gallbladder attack and it seems to help the stone pass faster. I recommend this for anyone with digestive or gastrointestinal issues.

Great for Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia, Irritability, and Restlessness

Posted by rabbit on Aug 30, 2012

I have been searching for something that will help me reduce daily stress, anxiety, irritability, and restlessness. This Passion Flower extract does all that and more. It has also helped with my insomnia. I keep this next to my bed so that whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, I drop a few dropper's-full underneath my tongue. Within five minutes of taking this, I am feeling calm again and can fall right back asleep. I also keep a bottle in my purse. When I use it during the day it doesn't make me sleepy or drowsy and I am able to function just fine. I simply feel calm and can go about my daily routine feeling more at ease. When you use the sublingual method (under the tongue), it can burn a little because of the alcohol, but that goes away after a while. I do it that way because it works faster. I wish there were an alcohol-free version. I have to use more than the recommended dose in order to notice anything, but this definitely gives me a much better feeling than California Poppy or Damiana, which both seemed to come with withdrawal symptoms. This is definitely a must-have item during the stressful winter holidays, during big events, or while shopping in a Wal-Mart store.

Gets Rid of Dandruff

Posted by rabbit on Aug 16, 2012

This shampoo is a safe and effective treatment for dry, itchy, and flaky scalp. The tea tree oil did a good job getting rid of my dandruff. There are many dangerous toxins and harsh chemicals in traditional dandruff shampoos. Tea tree oil is a safe, natural alternative. This shampoo works great and you won’t be compromising your health. I find that my hair does better using only shampoo and no conditioner at all. One downside is that the product is in a plastic bottle - pure tea tree oil can eat through plastic, so any product with tea tree oil should really be in glass to ensure that unsafe plastic chemicals aren't leached into the product. Overall, a great product though I wasn't a big fan of the scent. I prefer their Mandarin Orange & Patchouli shampoo which also makes both my hair and scalp look, feel, and smell great.
