Healing With Whole Foods

I first became interested in natural medicine at the age of 18. As a teenager, I experienced many severe health problems such as severe acne, depression, anxiety, low energy, and hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes). As a last resort, I went to see a Naturopathic physician. While skeptical at first, having been brought up on prescription drugs and a Standard American Diet (SAD), I decided to try the changes suggested by the Naturopath. I switched to a whole foods diet, cut out dairy products, started taking vitamins and other supplements, and began exercising and practicing meditation. Within a year, most of my health problems were gone. I have since studied more about natural medicine and tried hundreds of health products. My favorite book is "Healing With Whole Foods" by Paul Pitchford. I have found that a simple, whole-foods based diet, along with some key supplements, exercise, and stress reduction is a great recipe for health. May others find the key to good health, too!

Switched from NOW Spirulina; Great Quality True Hawaiian Spirulina

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

As I noted in my review of NOW Brand's Spirulina Powder, I decided to switch to this product after learning that NOW's Spirulina Powder, which was previously "100% Natural Hawaiian Spirulina", was switched to another type of Spirulina, not of Hawaiian origin. This product is likely the same Hawaiian Spirulina previously sourced also by NOW. From all the green foods products I have tried, Hawaiian Spirulina is by far one of the best. Compared to other Spirulina powders, this product is rich, vibrant, and actually quite refreshing tasting. The level of freshness is much higher than with other, cheaper Spirulina products. I take 30 grams of this Spirulina per day, divided into two 15 gram doses at breakfast and before bed. I do think it is helpful to take significantly more than the recommended dose to really notice the effects. I take this product along with Jarrow Formula's Chlorella. Since beginning to take this product, I have noticed a dramatic change in my energy level, ability to recover from strenuous exercise, increased ability to concentrate, and an overall sense of internal strength and well-being. I don't attribute miraculous effects to this product, but I do think the high levels of easily digestible protein, iron, vitamins, chlorophyll, gamma linolenic acid, and other properties make this product truly one of the most powerful and concentrated foods you can buy. An added benefit is that I haven't needed to take multi-vitamins since using this product, which saves money. I will continue to take this product daily and enjoy all the health benefits.

Warm Spicy Taste; Wonderful!

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I really enjoy Yogi Teas. This tea, along with the Egyptian Licorice, are my favorites. This tea is great to have in the fall of winter, when the weather gets colder. This tea also warms me up. The taste is spicy and sweet and the smell of cinnamon will fill up the kitchen when you brew a cup. The taste isn't overpowering, but you can really taste the spice with the ginger and cinnamon, in particular. I also enjoy the fact that many of the herbs used in this tea are good medicinally. The ginger and cinnamon are very good anti-inflamatory herbs. Some Indian Spicy teas are overwhelmed by the cardamon. This tea doesn't have that problem. All the herbs work well very together and form a nice blend. Highly recommended!

Nice for Tea Blends; Amazing Price

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

As with other Frontier Natural Products loose root and herb blends, this one is a great value. I make my own tea blends using green tea, ginger, licorice, and other ingredients. This bag is a nice addition. I especially like using this with green tea or with burdock root or dandelion for a custom detox tea. There are many possibilities. The quality is good overall. Clearly, for this price, you aren't paying for wild licorice root found at the top of a misty mountain in China. I like this product and will use often.

Nice quality and scent

I started using this conditioner due to dry, thinning hair. After about a month of use, I notice my hair has looked healthier than before. It has a pleasant and subtle scent, too.

Seems to be Improving Anemia

Posted on Mar 27, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

After taking this for about a month, I've noticed I don't feel as weak and run down as I did before. Having a mostly vegan diet, I find this helpful as a supplement to make sure I'm getting the iron I need. Also, I haven't noticed any problems with digestion or taste.

Quality Green Lentils from A Quality Company

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

I bought these to add some protein and iron to my diet. This is a no-frills product. There isn't that anything exciting about a bag of green lentils. I did enjoy cooking these with rice and using spices such as curry. Arrowhead Mills generally has high quality products, and this was no exception. If I'm going to make lentil dishes in the future, I would be happy to order this product again.

I found Alter Eco to be on of the best free trade chocolate brands, along with Equal Exchange. This bar has a nice sweet taste and a smooth texture. I really enjoyed this product and would order again.

Crunches Like Rice Crispies

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

The quinoa in this bar adds a nice crunch and an airy texture. I appreciate that Alter Eco is fair trade and works with smaller community co-ops. The bar also has a silky texture, which counterbalances nicely with the crunch. I would certainly order again.

Nice Lip Balm

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

This is a nice overall lip balm. As a man, I don't really care about lip balm flavors or anything like that. I got this as a free trial size. It does the job of keeping my lips from cracking when I stay in the sun too long.

Solid Fish Oil, from Small Bodied Fish, Sustainable

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

I purchased this product because I was looking for a cheap fish oil supplement that was of reasonably high quality and wouldn't leave me with any "fish burps". I found this product to be of high quality overall. I like the fact that the fish oil comes from small bodied fish which are more sustainably caught that larger fish. I would recommend this product for people looking for a reasonably priced fish oil without any fish oil side effects.

A Mild Blend, Solid All-Around Spice

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

I bought this product to use in rice and fish dishes. It has been what I expected it to be. It is similar to other general spice blends that utilize complimentary herbs. The amount of garlic in this product is perhaps slightly more than in other blends, although I didn't think it was overpowering. This is a solid spice blend to be used in a wide variety of dishes.
