An antiviral powerhouse I always keep on hand

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! :)

Excellent quality food sourced nutrients

Purchased at iHerb

My sweetie swears by this vitamin. When he takes just a couple a day (rather than 3 with each meal as suggested) he finds that his energy and all-around feeling of wellness are much better. I can't take them because I find them hard to swallow, too dry and large for me. The ingredients are amazing, a blend of nutrients in their whole food state, nothing synthetic here. The antioxidants are from fruits and veggies, tonic mushrooms and sea veggies add super benefits you may not get in your regular diet. NOTE that coffee extract and green tea are part of the blend, so depending on your situation these could either be energy-enhancing or too stimulating. Play with the dose and build it up, don't try 9 the first day for instance. If you have allergies/sensitivities or complicated health issues read labels carefully because in a comprehensive blend like this you may find something tucked in there that you shouldn't be taking. 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. Here's to your radiant wellness! :)

I use it in breakfast smoothies and credit it with a flattened tummy :)

I LOVE the blend. To my palate it has a very deep green chlorophyll taste that I enjoy...I feel like I really taste the chlorella. I especially like to use it in a breakfast green smoothie. I vary the ingredients a bit, but usually use plain Greek low fat yogurt, frozen banana chunks, frozen blueberries, lots of fresh mint, some flax oil, chia or hemp, and a nice big scoop of Vitamineral green. Sometimes I add fresh greens as I always used to, but with the Vitamineral green they are a nice addition but they don't feel necessary. More about this blend that I love: No sweeteners. Lots of probiotics. Enzymes. A good mix of seaweeds. I feel great when I use it. I also just bought 2 cute pairs of jeans a few sizes smaller than I had worn in years. They aren't kidding about working your way up to the full dose--it can be very cleansing! :)

I always keep it on hand for the kitchen and medicine cabinet

I have been using this product for many years, originally suggested by my Naturopath. I use it in rinse water for fruits and veggies to clean and disinfect from potential germs, pesticides, e coli, etc. I use it to similarly disinfect counters and floors, washable air filters, on and on, just a bit diluted in water. It's super bitter, FYI. I have used directly on stubborn skin issues, but in general do dilute a bit or a lot. There is a lot of good info out there about using it to help to heal issues like Candida, help support Lyme healing, fungus, parasites, etc. etc. Just know that die-off/herx symptoms may emerge and you can feel worse before better. Back off your dosage if you need to for a bit, and always consult your own practitioners for medical advice. The fact that it kills e coli, staph, salmonella, etc. means that I will *always* keep it on hand for my medicine cabinet, and when traveling!

May help with Lyme biofilm removal--talk to your LLMD or other Lyme literate practitioner

Posted on Jul 21, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Someone in my life has chronic Lyme disease, so I try to learn all I can to help. Herbalist Stephen Buhner, author of "Healing Lyme" and many other excellent books also has a specific website to address healing Lyme. That's where I first learned of nattokinase used to remove Lyme biofilm. I appreciate that nattokinase is made from fermented soybeans. I know that some folks rave about lumbrokinase, but I can't deal with the thought of a supplement made from worm by-products. Nattokinase is also *much* more affordable. 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, especially with any chronic or serious illness. "LLMD" stands for "Lyme literate medical doctor," someone who has more experience in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease. Lyme 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. Take good care of yourself, and heal well! :)

Keeps the mice away, and the price on this size is amazing!

Posted on Jul 21, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I had been buying the 1 or 2 oz. sizes regularly from local health food stores, but this is *so* much more economical since I use so much of it! NOTE--he smaller sizes are packaged to dispense 1 drop at a time, while this larger size uses a regular pour style opening. I will keep ordering this size (or the 16 oz) as refills for the 2 oz. size bottles with the dropper cap. 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. Of course if you can figure out where they come in, plug those holes as well as you can! If you do use cotton balls, they need to be refreshed regularly, at least every couple of weeks. 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. I also like to use it in the home diluted in a mister bottle as a freshening room spray. When I did so I seemed to kill off a disturbingly large number of Asian lady beetles (they look like pale Ladybugs but secrete something that smells AWFUL) that made their way into the house. I hear that ants and other insects also peppermint. It can be an eye irritant and quite the sinus cleaner if you use too much around the house, but it doesn't bother us at all. I'm so very grateful for this fresh and natural way to combat rodents and other pests.

Excellent to help to release Lyme toxins

Posted on Jul 19, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Does anyone in your life have Lyme disease? Check in with a Lyme literate doctor (LLMD) to see what will work best as part of treatment. Red root may be helpful as part of a protocol to reduce the toxins that build up in the body. Herbalist Stephen Buhner, author of Healing Lyme, says that swollen lymph nodes are often a sign of a buildup of the bacteria or viruses being killed off as they go through the lymph system to be flushed out. Red root will help you to pee out the toxins. Don't take it at night and interrupt your sleep! Lyme disease manifests differently in people, often with different co-infections, so what is right for one (or at one stage of the game) would not be right for another. Always check with your own practitioner to see what may be right for you. Lymphatic drainage and other forms of massage can also help, and feel pampering too. Heal well and happily! :)

Very, very calming and soothing

I have loved this beautifully scented lavender oil for so many purposes. Years ago I worked at a flower shop, and we kept some very diluted in a spray bottle full of water behind the counter. When it was a hectic florist holiday or we just needed a little "ahhhhhhhh!" we would spritz some into the air around us, and all would sigh happily and relax. The wonderful light fresh scent would not clash or compete with the smells of fresh flowers, plants or wet earth in the store. Spritzed in the bedroom at night it's relaxing and soothing. You can also use it to make inexpensive but pampering gifts like Epsom salt or sugar based scrubs that you can package in a pretty jar tied with a ribbon. Add some carrier oil and lavender with or without other scents. Recipes are widely available online. Most essential oils need some dilution to be used on the skin without irritating, but many folks who have sensitive skin can use lavender undiluted. Try it diluted first and/or do a patch test on your skin. Very helpful also for healing scars. I highly recommend this oil.

My sweetie feels it his hands when he goes without

This may be one of those products that could take you a little while to notice that it makes a big difference, yet try to go without it and the positive benefits are very clear. My sweetie and I are getting to be the age where it feels like the warranty on some of our parts is up, and knees are at the top of the list. For him it's also fingers, and without this product he starts to experience a lot more pain and stiffness in his knuckles. With it he is much more comfortable and able to do more. We have rotated brands but this one is amazing.

A brand I trust, and this version is very hard to find in stores

Purchased at iHerb

I have been using Similisan products for years. My eyes are very sensitive, and tend to get very dry. Opthalmologists have always told me to get "natural tears" or products without preservatives which can further irritate, but most of the ones they recommend rely heavily on glycerin, which I don't want to out in my eyes--yuck! Similisan offers a range of excellent homeopathic eye drops, and I use several of them. I also like their Allergy Eye Relief, Dry Eye Relief, and Irritated Eye Relief. They have products for styes and pink eye too, which I have not used. Look up your own symptoms and the corresponding homeopathic remedies suggested, then check the ingredient panel on the back of the Similisan box, as each formulation is different. I rotate through several of their products depending on what symptom is presenting most acutely for me. Although I have such sensitive and dry eyes to begin with, I make my own situation worse be working all day on a computer at work, and then "relaxing" on a computer at home, all of which is very hard on my eyes. The Computer Eye Relief is a welcome relief when I suffer from eyestrain. I can usually find several of the other Similisan eye drops at any health food store and nowadays at many drug stores, but for some reason the Computer Eye Relief is normally not carried in nearby stores, so I buy it here. I also try to supplement well with omega 3's, which help to lubricate my eyes. My ophthalmologist always recommends that too. Take good care of the windows to your soul! :)

I like that these are shelf stable, and I usually keep a single card of them in my purse. Different strains of probiotics work better on different health situations, so do your research and find out which ones may be most helpful to you. If you are also taking antibiotics, take your probiotics a few hours apart or at the opposite time of day so they don't compete. :)
