Replaced prescription Lisinopril
My mother used to take 20 mg of Lisinopril. She now just takes just one capsule of Hawthorn per day and her blood pressure has been great - actually better than on the Lisinopril! She eats very well and takes other supplements, but Hawthorn seems to be the only one that has significantly lowered her blood pressure. UPDATE 2012: She continued to take 1 Hawthorn every day for over 2 years with excellent blood pressure. Now she doesn't take any because she finds her blood pressure is usually good without it. Before switching to Hawthorn, her BP was very high. Several of her friends switched from prescription to Hawthorn on her recommendation with great results.
For cold feet

I was suffering from extremely cold feet. They cold sensation went away right after I started taking one of these per day.
May work in cancer treatment
Posted by Reviewer3093099 on Oct 22, 2007
My mother was diagnosed with a fast spreading malignant melanoma on the bottom of her foot. We were worried because it took almost 6 months from the time she noticed the lump until surgery (mostly because of the insurance company!). When she finally told me, I started researching supplements. For about 8 days before surgery, I had her taking this liquid Flor Essence as well as VPS® Coriolus Versicolor by Mushroom Science. Most other supplements I wanted to give her were not allowed because they were blood thinners (e.g., garlic, Ubiquinol, curcumin). During surgery, the doctor removed a few lymph nodes to test, and the cancer had not spread! He said the lump must not have been as deep as the biopsy indicated, but we feel that the Flor Essence and Coriolus mushrooms really helped. She continued to take the Flor Essence for about 5 weeks after surgery, but it got expensive, so she stopped but continues with other supplements. She healed well.
Helps with hair loss

I have had a female hair loss problem for many years. Since taking this supplement, my hair loss is much reduced.
This is the best supplement I've taken for my digestive health. However, the first time I took it (2 capsules), I got one episode of explosive diarrhea and nausea, but by the morning all was well. Within a few days, I was able to handle 3 per day taken at separate times. Two weeks later, my digestive system has improved significantly, my tongue looks much healthier (much less white coating and cracks almost gone). Also, I have found that the aloe vera is a wonderful moisturizer and it makes my skin soft and complexion better. I highly recommend and you just can't beat the price for how well this works. UPDATE 2012: I haven't used this product for ages but plan to try it again soon. I thought this was the best supplement in the world for me because it was so effective, but then another 2 batches that I bought didn't seem to have much effect. Strange. Maybe I just didn't need it anymore or got a batch that wasn't as fresh.
I use it directly on my skin with emu oil

Emu gold oil plus frankincense essential oil has really made my skin look better. The emu seems to reduce inflammation and redness, and the mild rosacea on my cheeks has improved a lot. Adding some undiluted essential oil of frankincense directly on the acne from rosacea (a relatively small area for me) a little while after applying the emu oil seems to reduce the acne. I discovered this by experimentation with a few different oils that I had on hand. It's been less than two weeks, and the rosacea has not gone, but it's definitely better. I was also getting a pimple on my chin recently, and the frankincense oil got rid of it right away. Sometimes I reapply the frankincense many times in a day.
Seems to help with rosacea

This is a very nice cream. When I first started using it, I thought it made my skin break out, so I would only use it occassionally. Then, with it being all I had left, I began to use it regularly and I noticed a big improvement in the rosacea on my face and my face felt nicely moisturized. I ran out an re-ordered, but accidentally ordered the gel instead of the cream. My skin did not like the gel and the rosacea came back. So, I recommend this cream.

Very nice, relatively mild flavor. I use a tablespoon in a smoothie, and I also fry with.

Along with other supplements, I'm giving this Chaga with Betulin to my mother to prevent melanoma metastases. I like this brand and I'm glad I can now order these on iHerb.

When I took Maitake along with New Chapter's GarlicForce, I noticed an improvement with some candida symptoms (it cleared up my tongue).
Great for dry skin
Posted by Reviewer3093099 on Oct 09, 2007
I'd tried many different oils and lotions, and none helped the excessively dry skin on my face. I'd read MSM was good for the skin, so decided to give this product a shot. Wow! It really works. My skin is significantly better!
Great for colds & flu
I bought this for candida but haven't used them regularly, so cannot comment on that yet. However, this past winter, my boyfriend came down with a terrible flu (fever, unable to eat). On that first day, I made him some strong chicken broth and then I gave him 3 capsules of Candida Clear because it was the only supplement that I had with me at the time. About an hour later he was dramatically better. We each took 3 capsules 3 times a day for at least 3 days that winter that every time we thought we might be catching a cold or flu (or in his case had the flu). I don't know if a lower dose would have been just as effective - I just guessed on the dosage to stop the cold/flu. I am truly impressed by this product because it was the first winter in as long as I can remember that I didn't catch a cold (and my colds normally transition to bronchitis). Now I have my mother taking these to keep her immune system strong.
