As good as we were told!

After diagnosing a family member with adrenal fatigue, we got this product on the recommendation of several other users. We didn't have high hopes, since the complaints had spanned years without releif. A few day after starting on the adrenal cortex, the family member called me and let me know how it was going. His relief of adrenal symtpoms were not only near immediate from the 1st day of taking the product, but actually also quite amazing. He was very happy with the relief he felt, energy level and concentration ability. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who is suffering adrenal fatigue symptoms.
OOOps - Now with Fluoride - Surprise
Guess we didn't expect to find Healthy Mouth toothpaste with fluoride in it. We actually have purchased healthy mouth toothpaste regularly. This time somehow got Gel with Fluoride. Watch closely, don't let the name fool you. 4 tubes wasted. :-(
Great for Ganglion Cyst
Posted by Zambini on Aug 08, 2008
Picked our Topricin up at the Chicago Health Freedom Expo. It was for my brother, son-in-law and husband, all who have had joint and muscle injuries. We were happy with how the samples we tested at the Expo worked, so got some to bring home. I had a recent reason to use it myself, as repetitive step stool climbing painting a new house caused injury which resulted in two ganglion cysts on my foot. It was painful before the cysts presented, but some Topricin once a day helped. A few days after the pain the cysts presented, and as I learned what they were, decided to try the Topricin on them. I applied it up to 5 times daily and the first 24 hours the bumps receded to a swelling. After 3 days, the area looks like water retention and the serious pain is gone, just a little burning. I'm expecting after a week of Topricin, this will all just be a memory. I don't know what I would have used had I not had the Topricin on hand. It has replaced Arnica in our cabinet (it contains Arnica as well as other homeopathic ingredients). I also don't know what the doctor's bill I just avoided would have been, but I'd say the Topricin has MORE than paid for itself. I hadn't thought to check for it at iHerb before, but am happy to see, as usual, an amazingly great price! I'll be getting my replacement tube here.

I added this anti-viral last to my husband's virus battle. The other additions only noted slight improvement in his over all well being. The L-Lysine from Twin Labs though made a big WOW effect his very first week of use. Latent viruses was the issue I had best identified for him. The first week he noted improved energy, less muscle soreness, and within two weeks a decrease in his warts - a life long battle. I'd drop all the other anti-viral supplements before considering eliminating this one. That is - until I'm sure we've successfully defeated the latent viruses for good.
Seems extra refined for turbinado
Usually get bulk turbinado at the health food store. Will definitely keep doing that. The Now Turbinado seemed a bit refined, very fine, almost like colored white processed sugar. Less flavor than usual turbinado.
Very Nice Surprise
Posted by Zambini on Apr 24, 2009
I've tried many bars. I like bars, and enjoy the ease of traveling with them. Most of the time, they are too expensive to justify the less than stellar taste. This time though, I was pleasantly surprised. I had my son bring me a glass of milk in case I needed to change the taste in my mouth quickly. I noted what seemed to be chocolate chips in the bar, and was a bit more leary of trying. Finally, though, I took a bite. It did taste good. It probably even rivals Larabar's flavor. Very full, rich and satisfying is what I'd say. I'm here not just to rate it, but to order a box for traveling cross country. I'm always looking for good calories on the road, while waiting to find an appropriate place for a meal. This will definitely be a good option.

I use veggie rotini a lot for pasta salads and other favorite recipes. Unfortunately, they are getting harder to find. had never tried Eden, as it was not available to me. Oftentimes, I'm leery of trying new pastas because they don't cook well, or stay formed without falling apart. This was a WINNER! It cooked easily, without loosing it shape. I could stir it into a pasta dish, without mangling the noodles. And, the taste was excellent. It's our new favorite.
One of the best bars out there
Have used Grandpa's oatmeal for years and love it. Use it for hands, face and body. If you are dry it can be a bit drying, follow it with some coconut oil and all it wonderful though!
My son definitely noticed a difference
Posted by Zambini on Apr 03, 2009
Got for my son. I also got him a support truss. He definitely noticed less pain with the pills, which came first, but it took almost a whole bottle. We decided to order another bottle, and he took those while wearing the truss. The combination of the two made him much more comfortable. The hernia is obviously still there when he doesn't use the truss, but not causing pain and not getting larger. We are going to try a few more bottles of the hernease, then reassess to see if maybe we can just stop.

I read a lot of labels and decided to try this enzyme first. I won't need to try another. It has made a huge difference, and I have recommended it to others who noticed and immediate improvement when adding this to their meal plan. If you are considering taking an enzyme to supplement digestion, I would highly recommend this one.
Our Antibioitic Alternative
Posted by Zambini on Apr 22, 2012
We use GSE for mostly an antibiotic alternative and sore throat aid. We have a prescription antibiotic allergic family member, so needed a good alternative. We studied GSE and decided to try it. We now recommend it to anyone considering seeing a doc for a throat or respiratory infection. We have used it successfully to treat strep, tonsillitis, ear infection and even yeast infections. Everyone should have a bottle in their cupboard! Amazing stuff. Nutribiotic liquid is what we use and recommend. We dilute 10 drops in 6 oz of water for antibiotic substitute and for just plain old undiagnosed sore throats. The relief is usually permanent and immediate.
On a Whim - a Good one

Added this to my cart on a whim. I've always like the idea of a mouthwash, but alcohol and fluoride are no-nos here. So, when I saw this, decided to try it. We really like the Periobrite toothpaste, and the mouthwash didn't let us down. It really does work against dry mouth too!! I usually wake up with dry mouth in the night or early morning, and didn't. I'd definitely recommend this product.
