I have been using natural medicines to treat and enhance my health for over 20 years. My mother used natural medicines as well. I believe the body heals itself, so my aim is to encourage it through the aid of natural substances. My favorite reference book is "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" by Dr. Michael Murray ND.

excellent for candida

Posted on Jan 31, 2011

31 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Taken as directed (one teaspoon a half-hour before meals), this Manuka honey completely knocked out GI Candida within 2 days! I am very impressed. It tastes great in tea, but does not have the same effect as when taken before meals. Apparently it can also be used topically to treat or prevent infection, and is used overseas in hospitals to prevent infection of surgical wounds.

Excellent for bone health

I take these to assist my body with bone and teeth health. I previously had a tooth that hurt when I bit down on it (probably a crack in it); after a week on Super K, the tooth stopped hurting and hasn't hurt since.

it worked, maybe too well

Purchased at iHerb

On the advice of an Ayurvedic physician I took these to "purify" my blood. The first thing I noticed was that my urine took on a rusty color. I thought that this was due to impurities being excreted. After two months of taking Hemocare, I developed SEVERE anemia (very low body temp, tremendous fatigue, insomnia, depression). At that point I stopped the Hemocare, and it dawned on me that the rusty color of my urine was probably iron from red blood cells. So this product definitely works, but pay attention to your body and do not take it for too long, and maybe take an iron supplement along with it (Natural Factors Ultimate Iron is a good one).

helped with anemia

Posted on Nov 17, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

Was taking iron for anemia and developed symptoms of intestinal yeast infection. Researched and found out that the yeasty beasties feed on the iron, leaving little or none for your body. Lactoferrin binds with the iron, making it unavailable to the yeast, and then transports it into your cells where you want it. Thank you, iHerb, for providing this product with great service and at a very reasonable price.

Great for liver detox

Cysteine is a lipotropic element. It helps the liver function more efficiently to neutralize and eliminate toxins and wastes. Other lipotropics include methionine, choline, B6 and B12.

inexpensive eye health

Posted on Oct 28, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Bilberry is excellent for eyes. It has been shown to improve night vision, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. It also has the ability to aid in collagen formation and prevent free-radical formation. After taking it for 2 months I have noticed sharper eyesight and quicker recovery after glare exposure. My friend is taking it for macular degeneration, and the doctor noted that his condition had not worsened and looked "better than expected"!

Great for anxiety

Posted on Jul 21, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Seriphos seems to protect the brain from high levels of cortisol due to anxiety and stress. However, this form does not have the other phospholipids. To get those naturally, you can take an inositol supplement (inositol helps your body build those phospholipids needed for neurotransmitter health). This combo of Seriphos and inositol has been a lifesaver to me, allowing me to say goodbye to depression and anxiety during a very stressful time in my life.

myo-inositol is a different form of inositol

Posted on Jan 31, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

As I found out after purchasing this product, there are different forms of inositol. I guess it's a matter of finding the form that works best for you. I found that this form didn't have the sedating effect of other brands (Solaray, Source Naturals). Although this form has apparently been used for OCD and depression, Dr. Murray ND recommends inositol monophosphate for those conditions as well as anxiety. Other manufacturers don't specify what form of inositol is in their products, but at least Jarrow does.

felt it working within 24 hours

Purchased at iHerb

I was experiencing bloating and indigestion due to yeast overgrowth (from taking iron supplements - iron feeds yeast). I started taking Candex, and within 24 hrs the bloating had subsided 75%. Within 48 hrs, the bloating was gone completely. I am alternating taking the capsules whole with opening them up into a glass of water. I feel more of a difference when I open them up, like it's more potent or something. A week or so after starting Candex, I added Candida Clear and Oregano Oil, and the combination has really worked. Three weeks later, as I write this review, the yeast problem is gone and I have stopped the Candida Clear and Oregano Oil. I will finish the bottle of Candex, and will not hesitate to reorder again if this problem recurs. Thanks, iHerb, for carrying this product and for your superb service, and thanks to all you other reviewers for helping me with your reviews and health tips!

gentle iodine for thyroid and breast health

Posted on Jun 05, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Natural iodine from seaweeds is different from the typical iodide salts found in supplements. According to Dr. Murray ND, natural iodine is the only type useful for breast health because breast cells lack the enzyme necessary to convert inorganic iodides into iodine. Iodine can help with fibrocystic breasts and cyclic mastalgia (cyclic breast pain). Since taking one kelp capsule a day my cyclic breast pain has disappeared.

Be very careful, can build up in body

Posted on Apr 14, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Experiment with the dosage to find what works best for you. For me it's 1/4 tsp in morning, 1/2 tsp at night. The larger amount at night helps me sleep. May, 2011 - I am updating my review to note that, for some women, the progesterone builds up in the fat tissue and then is released over time. This leads to having an excess of progesterone, which has side effects of headache, strong tension in body, high BP, bad insomnia, anxiety, because the excess progesterone competes with cortisol for receptors so the body compensates by producing more and more cortisol. So rather than feeling mellowed out like I did the first several months of usage, I ended up feeling very stressed and wired. I am off the cream now and hoping my hormones will stabilize.

not good for me

Posted on Sep 26, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I switched to Source Naturals DIM from Olympian Labs DIM. My urine turned orange, my blood sugar rose, and previous symptoms of estrogen dominance returned. I immediately went back to Olympian Labs and all symptoms disappeared again. Of course, everyone is different, and I'm sure SN is a good company, but it just didn't work for me.
