My Reviews

One of the best topicals I have ever used to ease aches and pain

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 14, 2012

Traumeel ointment has been a staple in my medicine cabinet for the past few years. I had used plain arnica gels for decades for muscle pain and bruising. One day a co-worker introduced me to Traumeel, which she said she had used with best effectiveness when taking the homeopathic tablets internally as well as using the cream externally. Arnica is one of the ingredients of Traumeel, so I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did, as it has helped me through any number of painful episodes with muscle spasms, neck and shoulder pain, pulled ligaments, etc. Traumeel also comes in a gel if you prefer that form. I love this ointment for its amazing effectiveness. It is fragrance free and there is no clothing staining or irritation for my ultra-sensitive skin. I added this sample to a care package for a friend whose husband plays hockey. He keeps arnica gel, etc. on hand in his own medicine cabinet for hockey injuries and muscle aches, and I wanted to make sure he knew about Traumeel as another great topical treatment for pain. Highly, highly recommended!

Helps a LOT with pain, inflammation, stiffness

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 31, 2012

My sweetie and I both love them, and each find benefit for separate health issues and body parts that act up. When I go without it for too long between orders I feel like my knees are just grinding bone on bone. When I stay on top of my issues with supplements like Doctor's Best Glucosamine Chondroitin I feel much better and I walk so fast that my friends can't keep up. :) Always check in with your own doctor/healing team to make sure that a supplement (or dosage) is right for you.

Excellent adaptogen revered for thousands of years, recommended by LLMD

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 30, 2012

Holy Basil (Tulsi) is an adaptogenic herb. Someone in my life has chronic Lyme, and their LLMD suggested adding Tulsi to the anti-Lyme herbal tea they drink, along with a traditional Western medicine approach. LLMD stands for "Lyme literate medical doctor," someone who has more experience in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease. It manifests differently in people, often with different co-infections, so what is right for one (or at one stage of the game) might not be right for another. The Tulsi was recommended for anxiety. It can help with the effects of too much cortisol in the body. I know I myself am an over user of coffee, and even that produces a lot of cortisol for me. If you have adrenal burn-out, check in with your own doctor or health practitioners to see if Tulsi/Holy Basil might be right for you. Herbs work differently for folks, and for some Holy Basil is more of a stimulant (and can make them feel jittery or keep them awake) and others report it helps them to sleep. It can depend on what else you take it with, what time of day, etc., so some tweaking might be in order. Adaptogens work in a slower way in the body, so it may take a while for you to feel the full effects. This is a brand I like and trust. There is a lot of information available on this herb, so do your research. The number of health conditions it is used for on people and animals is astounding. There are different types of Holy Basil, and dosage will differ not only based on health condition but which type of the herb. I believe this is an herb to avoid if pregnant or trying to get pregnant, but if that is the case with you I hope you are working closely with your health team anyway to make sure that what you ingest is safe and right for you. Heal well! :)

Highly recommended for anti-viral support

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 15, 2012

I don't use Nature's Answer Sambucus (nigra) Black Elderberry extract any longer, as I have to watch all forms of sugar in my diet. Vegetable glycerine and the elderberry fruit are the only sweeteners here, not added white sugar. The taste is great, not sugary-sweet like some of the other popular brands. I will always recommend this product to others. I experienced much anti-viral benefit when I used it, and didn't have the number of sick days my coworkers experienced during flu season.

This product looks great on me! :)

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 15, 2012

Very helpful for blood sugar issues, cravings and hunger pangs. I learned that chromium polynicotinate works much better for me than the chromium picolinate that I started taking years ago.

An antiviral powerhouse I always keep on hand

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 20, 2012

I have yet to find another brand of olive leaf I prefer to the Gaia Herbs Olive Leaf capsules. I trust this brand for quality, and am a repeat customer. Fans of olive leaf regularly report that it helped to clear up their (sinus infection, Candida, cold, flu, etc.) when other supplements they tried did not. I have found that to be so as well, and at the very least it seems to shorten the duration of an illness or infection quite a bit. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Heal well! :)

I wish I had this when I broke bones in the past!

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 15, 2012

I found this ointment very helpful in healing from sprains, sports injuries, low back ache, etc. Comfrey salve is excellent for topical use in cases of ligament pain, inflammation and even broken bones. No strong scents, and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin. I take Christopher's Original Formula Complete Tissue & Bone capsules at the same time for speedier effect. Check with your own doctor or health practitioner to make sure that a product is right for you. Don't forget to refrigerate as directed. Here's to your good health and healing!

Oxygenating and chelating benefits and much more

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 10, 2012

There is a little booklet called "Germanium: A New Approach to Immunity" that I bought for a few dollars to learn more about this mineral. I was initially interested because of reported oxygen enhancing benefits, and there are many other reported health benefits as well. Do your research, and check with your own health team to see if this supplement may be right for you.

Antiviral wellness in a bottle

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 26, 2012

I love elderberry extract. It has kept me and my loved ones well when others around us were felled by colds and coughs. I have cut sugar way out of my eating plan, though, so the delicious Sambucol syrup I used to use is no longer an option for me. I'm very grateful to be able to get the healing goodness of elderberry in easy to take tablets, sugar-free. I love this Wellness line of products, each one I have tried is outstanding.

LLMD recommended to help with toxins, herxes

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 27, 2012

Someone in my life has chronic Lyme, and is finally seeing a Lyme literate MD (LLMD) after many years of misdiagnosis and lack of treatment. I had only heard of activated charcoal being used in hospitals for people who overdose on medication, so I was skeptical. The charcoal binds the toxins and helps to pass them out of the body. It binds whatever else as well, so take a couple hours apart from whatever medication and supplements you are taking, with plenty of water. I have used internally and broke open a capsule to use externally on spider bites, etc. Please do not EVER put off going to the ER for any medical emergency. An important addition to any medicine cabinet. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Heal well! :)

Recommended by MD after lab work showed parasite

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 10, 2012

Someone in my world has digestive ills, and and out of state lab showed a giardia-type parasite. The MD who suggested this product has a good knowledge of functional and alternative medicine. It took more than one bottle, but it made a big difference.

Frankincense and myrrh scent is what I like best about this product

Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 14, 2012

I love Indigo Wild, especially their frankincense and myrrh products. Their frankincense and myrrh liquid soap is a favorite of mine for fragrant showers and soft skin. This tin of solid moisturizers is nice too, and the fragrance is more subtle than that of the liquid soap. I don't rely on this product as a heavy-duty moisturizer for winter chapped hands or anything like that, but as a regular skin softening rub with a delicious scent I really like it.
