Soft shiny mermaid waves scented with vanilla and mango

Posted on Jul 15, 2012

This was my first time using Beautiful Curls curl activating cream. It was on super special, and I couldn’t resist. I have long, wavy, thick, coarse, colored hair. It is super frizzy in the summer humidity. I loved the delicious scent of real mango and vanilla, no synthetic fragrances here. I combed it liberally through my hair, concentrating on dry ends, and braided it to create waves. I worried that I overdid it on the amount that I used, and that I would end up with a head full of greasy lank hair. Instead I took out my braids later in the day to very shiny and soft mermaid waves. After sleeping with the product still in my hair I awoke to stiffer rather crunchy waves that regained much of their softness of the day before after brushing. My only hesitation is that I’m not sure if regular use could shorten the length of time my hair coloring lasts. Otherwise this is a great product, and I will definitely rotate it in my hair regimen. It’s hard for me to find something that makes my hair so shiny without ending up making it greasy. Beautiful Curls activating cream hit that sweet spot for me. My hair is shiny and soft and wavy and feels much nicer for my sweetheart to run fingers through. ;)

*This* form of magnesium is much easier on my stomach. Other forms also help with pain and cramping (muscles, menstrual, etc.) as well as magnesium malate, but for me the others came at a cost that I hated to pay--bathroom emergencies. Magnesium malate helps with sleep, relaxation, fibromyalgic pain. Take it apart from your calcium supplements--they compete for the same receptor sites in the body. This is a great brand and a great price.

Mind your mitochondria!

Purchased at iHerb

Anyone else checking out Dr. Terry Wahls amazing research into healing mitochondria? She healed her own secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, and diet was a huge factor in that. Check out her TED video for "Minding Your Mitochondria." She recommends whole food sources of the nutrients we need (rather than supplements) and organ meats are among the greatest food source of Coenzyme Q10. Can't do organs? Then this form of it is one of the best, easily used in the body, and an excellent quality. Our cells need it for energy, it's good for our gums, our hearts, our brains, etc. Dr. Wahls was especially concerned with the way that the brain can shrink in MS. She realized that in other diseases including Parkinson's, Huntington's, Alzheimer's where the brain shrinks, it's due to problems in the mitochondria. CoQ10 to the rescue! She ended up getting out of a tilt recline wheelchair and now bikes, etc. She recommends food as medicine, but good quality supplements were what she started with before overhauling her diet. Remember Dr. Wahls recommends whole food for healing, not supplements...this supplement review is my own. 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! :)

House smells fresh and clean, keeps the mice and bugs away

Posted on Jun 30, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I live in a very old house with lots of holes that deer mice like to slip through. I read that using peppermint essential oil on strategically placed cotton balls helps to deter mice from entering a home. If you can figure out where they come in, of course plug the holes as well as you can! The mice like to travel against walls, and while I like the freshness of the mint, they do not. If you do use cotton balls, they need to be refreshed regularly. I also use this oil in our car, as I learned that mice can get in the car, under the hood, etc. and cause a lot of damage when they gnaw. Guests comment that our house smells clean. I like to use it diluted in a mister bottle as well. When I did so I seemed to kill off a disturbingly large number of Asian lady beetles that made their way into the house. I hear that ants and other insects hate peppermint as well. It can be an eye irritant and sinus cleaner if you use too much around the house. I'm so very grateful for this fresh and natural way to combat rodents and other pests.

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

Posted on Aug 14, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

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!

Ayurvedic antioxidant

I was interested in a good food sourced low acid Vitamin C, which is how I found Amla on iHerb. I appreciate the small and easily swallowed capsules. I like this brand and have been a repeat customer of Paradise Herbs when ordering from iHerb. For some it may help with mood when used regularly, but check with your doctor if you are currently on antidepressants or other medications. I believe it may also be used for blood sugar issues, but if you are diabetic please check with your own doctor before trying. Here's to your good health! :)

Helpful for mold and Candida

Posted on Nov 24, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Jatoba is a huge tree indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and some tropical areas of Central America. I became interested in Jatoba when I read that although mold often grows in the rainforest due to the wet conditions in the rainy season, indigenous people decoct Jatoba bark to treat and prevent fungal growth. For some people it can act as too much of a stimulant, so be aware of this and perhaps avoid taking it in the evening. Some folks also report a big herx or healing crisis (fungal die-off) when they take it, so start slow. What helps one condition can negatively impact another, so if you have medical issues please 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! :)

My sweetie takes this more often than I do. I tend to take it only when I am having a big pasta meal. Easy to swallow, helps with sugar cravings.

Neti was too intense for me, but this gently took care of my sinus issues

Posted on Jun 09, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

After getting sinus infections a few years in a row, I finally tried a Neti pot, which many friends recommended but always seemed kind of scary to me. I tried a number of times, with sea salt, a few drops of GSE, etc., but it was just WAY too intense for me, and didn't help. I think I was actually one of the people for whom Neti might have complicated an infection as I didn't get all of the water drained out properly. I have long loved and trusted GSE, and this nasal spray was just what I needed. Nice and gentle delivery, great product, no more sinus infections and that horrible raccoon mask of pain.

Ammonia removal but beware if you have had shingles!

Posted on Jun 26, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Often used by body builders and atheletes to help build muscle mass, L-Ornithine also helps the body to release ammonia. It's a precursor to human growth hormone, can help with insomnia, etc. L-Ornithine and L-Arginine can activate latent herpes/shingles, so please be aware especially if you have had trouble suppressing outbreaks. Please do your research as you will probably not want to supplement with L-Arginine or L-Ornithine if you have ever had an ocular (eye) outbreak. Always consult with your doctor/health team before adding any supplement that could interfere with your medications or if you have any medical conditions that could be worsened. Take good care of yourself!
