Great Stuff

Purchased at iHerb

I had a urinary infection and used the Mannose for one day thinking that was all I needed after reading info about the product. After that first day my symptoms were gone but I continued to take the Mannose the next day, but only a few teaspoons. My infection came back with a vengeance, I got a fever and it seemed that it was getting into my kidneys. I tried one antibiotic, cepro, took 2 pills and saw all the side effects and switched to another one. The next antibiodic didnt' clear up the infection either although since I was taking one bottle a day of the Mannose and had no symptoms. As soon as I stopped the Mannose the symptoms returned. I went one more round with another antibiodic with no relief and stopped the Mannose so I could tell if the drugs were helping. They weren't! Went to my naturopath and he recommended continuing with the mannose, the probiotics as well as his remedy which was to support the kidneys. I had also purchased the Jarrow Formulas, Fem-Dophilus, as I saw a series of videos on the specific bacteria in this formula and how it assists in preventing UTI and bacterial vaginitis. I also started taking Ohiras probiotic as it covers all the other good flora. Together they are a powerhouse! It has been almost 3 1/2 months and there is still minor discomfort only when I move about a certain way. I still take a teaspoon of Mannose daily as well as the probiotics. I've had UTI's on a regular basis over the last three years and I want to be proactive with my health. Iherb has the best prices and always carries great products. If I should get another UTI, I will take the Mannose for at least three days and take at least a bottle a day. Taking the probiotics along with the Mannose helps to re-colonize the urinary tract and vaginal area so that is a must for me!

Works Great AFTER cleaning dishwasher

Posted on Feb 28, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

When I first used the dishwasher soap, it left a residue on the dishes but so did cascade. I used a cup of vinegar initially in the base of the dishwasher and ran it through the cycle. Next I ran lemishine through a cycle as vinegar didn't work. I cleaned out the sprayers as there was junk stuck in them and cleaned out the rubber thing at the bottom of the door. This was filled with black, smelly sludge. YUCK! Once I had cleaned out the dishwasher, the biokleen soap worked beautifully. I just use 1 tablespoon per load. The first time I ran it after it was clean I added a bit of the lemishine in the soap container just in case. Normally I just add the soap and that's it. The other thing I do is run the water until it is hot AND run the garbage disposal to clear out the line. Food was getting stuck on the dishes as well. Very happy with the soap. Love their dish soap, general cleanser, laundry detergent, and oxygen bleach plus.

Get $5 off your order if you have never ordered from Iherb by using this code LUM828. I ordered four of the Mannose as you get a discount. I wanted to have at least that many on hand in case I get another infection so I can knock it out at the start. Antibiotics don't work!

Best Probiotic

Posted on Feb 11, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

Ohira's is the best. I'm taking it along with Jarrows Formulas, Fem-Dophilus as I've had recurrent UTI's. Ohira's is great for general, Jarrows Fem-Dophilus is specifically for UTI's and vaginal bacteriaitis. There is a 13 series videos on youtube about the bacteria in the Jarrows product. It is by the microbiologist who either "created" the bacteria or discovered its effectiveness. It's recommended for preventing infection so I will be taking it for a while.

Best Hempseed

Posted on Feb 09, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

This hempseed is so delicious. I put it in smothies and on top of salads to give extra nutrition. I just re-ordered this product because now my whole family is using it in their smoothies and salads as well. All of us enjoy an active lifestyle and it seems to provide the extra nutrition that we need to find success in our activites. I order everthing from Iherb from probiotics, skin care, BioKleen cleaning supplies, essential oils, and whole food supplements like hemp seed, chlorella, and spirulina. Great shipping and great prices.
