Disappointed after a couple of months
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Jan 29, 2017
I haven't had my iron levels checked yet, so this may not be an entirely fair review, but they were at 6, so I was expecting to feel better. After two months on this, I not only do not feel any increase in energy, I am becoming severely constipated and am having to rely on Cleansemore. I have stopped taking these and will likely switch to Floradix.

I bought these because there was a picture of peanut butter cups on the outside. I understand they are bars, so I thought they would be peanut butter cup bars. These are kind of hard and not chewy enough granola bars, they are nothing at all like chocolate peanut butter cups, and they don't taste very good, and they are super expensive to boot. Why put a picture like that on the box when that is not at all what is inside?

I'm not sure if there is enough product in this container that I will be able to see a difference in my dog's teeth because I don't think the bottle is going to last very long, but I will give it a try. It does seem expensive for the amount, especially for a large dog. I will update this review if I see a difference in her teeth or when I get to the end of the bottle.
Teeny tiny wee jar! Good taste
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Nov 05, 2014
I guess I didn't look at the size of the jar and went with the size of the picture on my screen because I was not expecting just how tiny this jar was going to be, which makes the stuff pretttttty expensive. However, I put a scoop in with my ground coffee and I am now placated. The coffee I was thinking about giving away (organic Nabob), I will now be able to drink happily. Vanilla powder seems like such a great idea!

I am very impressed with this supplement, I will definitely keep taking it.
Better than Reese's.

I am so sad that it's too warm to ship chocolate. These are unbelievable, but it would be good if they went on sale again.
This cannot be pure tamanu oil
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Aug 09, 2014
Although this smells kind of like tamanu oil, it is much lighter and more fluid than other brands of tamanu oil I have purchased. It is much more golden than brown or green, and pours out of the bottle very easily. The other brands I have are much more viscous and do not pour easily. It also is doing nothing for bikini bumps, which I had hoped it would according to what people have written on the net. Maybe it will just be an okay soothing oil, but if you really want tamanu oil, I would suggest getting a different brand.
My Review is Based on Taste Only So Far
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Jan 14, 2014
I haven't had this long enough to say if it helps in detoxing or in feeling better, but I like the taste. It is quite mild, and I normally detest herbal teas. I couldn't wait for this to arrive (it takes several weeks to get to Canada), so bought Yogi Tea Lemon and Ginger Detox from a local store, and while I like the taste of that one better, this one has more ingredients in it, so I think this one will probably be more helpful medicinally.
My dog had a growth, now she does not
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Nov 12, 2013
My 13 year old coonhound cross had a black growth under her left arm. I was giving her ground apricot kernels (for b17) and bovine cartilage (to stop growth of blood vessels to tumors) for a few months. When I added this brewed tea to her food every morning (I cook all of her food and it's organic), she began to smell very badly. I did not know why at first, I didn't put the two things together, because I thought it was an old dog thing or a dental issue (I do look after her teeth). A few weeks later the smell went away and then I noticed the black growth was gone and there was just an open wound in its place. I sprayed it with silver water and it healed over.From what I have read, when tumors shrink, it's typical for there to be a terrible smell. When I read that, I realized that's what the smell had been. I don't know if it was the guardian spirit tea (essiac) or a combination of all three. I hope this helps someone out there.
Tastes fine in a smoothie
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Sep 25, 2013
I just tried this out and I didn't notice this in my smoothie at all, so I think it's going to work very well to boost my protein intake. There are some great reviews on other sites as to it giving people energy. It seems like a very benign flavour and texture. I will update my review if I notice any health benefits.

Bovine colostrum is one of the best supplements I have ever used. I had chronic bronchitis for three years until I began taking this (as well as Dr. Ohhira's Five Year Probiotics), plus I was taking reishi mushroom and astragalus at the time, but I attribute the major change to the colostrum and Dr. Ohhira's. Three years of coughing till I thought I was going to die and lots of colds and it all stopped when I started this. I now know that my immune system was severely depleted due to stress and this helped tremendously. I no longer get colds. It also made my skin incredibly soft and velvety. I really love this stuff and I think everyone should be on it.

Update to review below: I am lowering my rating to two stars because my mother mentioned that my hair has been looking greasy lately. I thought that this and the bar with argan oil were doing a good job, although I still had days that my hair felt like straw even with the apple cider vinegar rinse, but I thought at least I was doing something good for it. My mother commented that since I've been using this, my hair has looked greasy. I'm now going to look for something else. I found a way that I can use this shampoo bar without turning my hair to oily straw. Instead of spraying the apple cider vinegar rinse on, I poured about 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar into a medium sized bowl, filled the rest with water, and dipped my hair into it, and poured the remaining rinse over my roots. I did not wash it out. Now my hair is soft and shiny. Original review: My hair looks and feels terrible after using this several times. I'm still going to try it for a while, because maybe it takes time to get used to. But my hair feels like straw on the bottom, and oily in places at the roots. I miss my Giovanni shampoo and conditioner so much, but I'm trying to completely avoid estrogenic ingredients like phenoxyethanol and certain essential oils (see Dr. Peter Eckhart if you're confused). J.R. Liggett's customer service is a bit weird, too. I phoned them to ask if their shampoo bar for damaged hair contains certain essential oils. They returned my call while I was out, so I emailed, explaining the situation. Instead of at least replying that the bar does or does not contain the essential oils I'm trying to avoid, they reacted as if I'm trying to steal their recipe. Paranoid much? I'm going to try their argan oil bar to see if that's an improvement on this one, but this whole experience has left a bad taste in my mouth. I just want to find a shampoo bar that works for me. I have long, fine, colour treated hair (brunette), btw, the kind that tangles hopelessly every time I set foot outside. Not sure if that's why this soap doesn't work so well or not. I also have been following it with an apple cider vinegar rinse.
