Healing With Whole Foods

I first became interested in natural medicine at the age of 18. As a teenager, I experienced many severe health problems such as severe acne, depression, anxiety, low energy, and hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes). As a last resort, I went to see a Naturopathic physician. While skeptical at first, having been brought up on prescription drugs and a Standard American Diet (SAD), I decided to try the changes suggested by the Naturopath. I switched to a whole foods diet, cut out dairy products, started taking vitamins and other supplements, and began exercising and practicing meditation. Within a year, most of my health problems were gone. I have since studied more about natural medicine and tried hundreds of health products. My favorite book is "Healing With Whole Foods" by Paul Pitchford. I have found that a simple, whole-foods based diet, along with some key supplements, exercise, and stress reduction is a great recipe for health. May others find the key to good health, too!

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Corny, I know, but this product makes me think of those ridiculous chia pet commercials. The product itself is high quality, as I have come to expect from Bob's Red Mill. The seeds were fresh and lasted several months in my refrigeration. With all of Chia's health benefits, from it's Omega 3 profile, to fiber, to vitamins, it is truly one of the powerhouse superfoods available today. I would order this product again and enjoy in smoothies or oatmeal.

Nice for Apple Pie or Cider

Purchased at iHerb

This is a nice blend of cinammon, nutmeg, and ginger, 3 anti-inflammatory herbs that also happen to taste great in drinks or in baked goods. You can also use this product in ciders, pancakes, waffles, or cookies. It's a nice, warming blend that works in many different recipes.

High Quality Bone Builder, Helped My Stress Fracture

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product after dealing with a stress fracture in my foot. I attributed the stress fracture to overuse in running and insufficient calcium. The main ingredient in this product, microcrystalline hydroxyapatite, has been shown to be more effective in building and maintaining bone density than other types of calcium such as calcium carbonate and citrate. After taking this product for several months, and resting my foot, I found my stress fracture had completely healed and I was able to run normally again. The fact that you get a massive amount of product for the cost is an added bonus. I would order this product again.

Nice Red Lentils for Indian Dishes

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased these lentils to be used in indian dishes and for lentil soup. The lentils were fresh and tasted quite good when cooked in soup or with rice and spices. I trust that Bob's Red Mill is a quality brand. If I'm looking for red lentils, I will certainly buy this product again.

Smooth Lip Balm, Good Taste

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I got this product for free. I'm not especially interested in lip balm flavor, but this one seems to be pretty good. The vanilla flavor is subtle and my lips stay moisturised during the day. As for whether this is "completely kissable", I'll leave review of that item to others. Solid lip balm and recommended for the price.

Excellent Value; Strong, Warrior Green Tea

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

I think of this tea as my warrior green tea. The tea is perfect if you have on the agenda climbing a mountain at dawn or going for a long run in the snow. The tea has a very strong taste compared to other, milder blends. The gunpowder tea is aptly named for the small rolls of green tea that look like gunpowder shells. I drink this tea alone, steeping a few pellets in a cup or a larger amount in a small tea pot. I also find this tea goes well with other loose ingredients such as licorice root or ginger root. I notice a definite buzz from this tea. I don't drink a lot of caffeine, so the effect was probably stronger for me than for others who use more caffeinated products. Highly recommended and a great value ($11)! for enough tea to last you a long awhile.

Calming, Wonderful Scent; Great for Small Gifts

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

I really enjoy chamomile tea on certain occasions such as before bed, while reading a book, or while sitting outside on a spring day. I prefer whole chamomile flowers like this to cut up chamomile found in other blends. As with most ot the Frontier Natural Products bags, you get a lot of product for the price. This amount of Chamomile will probably last you 6 months if you use it sparingly. I also found that this product and others from Frontier Naturals make nice, inexpensive gifts when given away in a small glass jar with a custom made label. Highly recommended!

Good Natural Toothpaste, Refreshing

Posted on Oct 28, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product to try a different toothpaste from Jason Natural. I prefer this type to the peppermint Powersmile. This toothpaste is a clear gel that is quite light. I experienced some problems with irritation and sensitivity with other natural toothpastes. This product doesn't irritate my teeth and leaves me with a cool taste in my mouth. It seems to work well as an overall toothpaste, although I haven't noticed any whitening effects. I will purchase again.

Nice for Tea Blends; Amazing Price

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

As with other Frontier Natural Products loose root and herb blends, this one is a great value. I make my own tea blends using green tea, ginger, licorice, and other ingredients. This bag is a nice addition. I especially like using this with green tea or with burdock root or dandelion for a custom detox tea. There are many possibilities. The quality is good overall. Clearly, for this price, you aren't paying for wild licorice root found at the top of a misty mountain in China. I like this product and will use often.

Warm Spicy Taste; Wonderful!

Posted on Aug 18, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I really enjoy Yogi Teas. This tea, along with the Egyptian Licorice, are my favorites. This tea is great to have in the fall of winter, when the weather gets colder. This tea also warms me up. The taste is spicy and sweet and the smell of cinnamon will fill up the kitchen when you brew a cup. The taste isn't overpowering, but you can really taste the spice with the ginger and cinnamon, in particular. I also enjoy the fact that many of the herbs used in this tea are good medicinally. The ginger and cinnamon are very good anti-inflamatory herbs. Some Indian Spicy teas are overwhelmed by the cardamon. This tea doesn't have that problem. All the herbs work well very together and form a nice blend. Highly recommended!

Seems to be Improving Anemia

Posted on Mar 27, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

After taking this for about a month, I've noticed I don't feel as weak and run down as I did before. Having a mostly vegan diet, I find this helpful as a supplement to make sure I'm getting the iron I need. Also, I haven't noticed any problems with digestion or taste.
