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!

Strong Flavor

Posted on Dec 04, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This new product from Rainbow Light seems to have high quality ingredients. I mixed this packet with some spirulina and apple juice. I found the taste to be quite distinct and sweet. The taste reminds me of strong drink powder mixes like Emergen-C or sports drink replacement powders. I'm not sure how it would taste alone. I personally prefer green powders with tastes that aren't as sweet, but this may be an option for people seeking a green powder without a strong earthy, green taste.

Seems to Be a Good Calcium Product for the Price

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have used several types of calcium to support my bone healthy being someone who doesn't use dairy products. This product offers you 47 servings for $5, which is a pretty good price as far as calcium supplements go. I will need to take this product for some time before deciding about the quality compared to others. I have heard good things about coral calcium, so I'll give it a try and see how it stacks up to MCHC and others.

Very Thick Sunscreen; Caused Some Skin Problems

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product when I was looking for a more natural sunscreen. I had previously used MyChelle's "Sun Shield" which worked quiet well, but was somewhat expensive. When I first tried this product, I found it to be very thick in consistency. I could really feel the product on my skin and especially on my face. I also noticed that my skin broke out when using the product on my face. It seems to create a thick barrier on your face which doesn't allow your skin to breathe properly. I will probably use this product on my arms and body, but I wouldn't use again on my face and I won't reorder once the product is gone.

Good for Cider, Bad for Tea

Posted on Jan 21, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

The first time I tried this mix, I used it with apple juice to make a cider. It was excellent. When I tried using it just with water to make tea, it was far too strong for my taste and didn't remind me at all of other Indian Spice teas I have tasted. I will use the rest of the bag for cider, but won't reorder again to make tea.

Worked Well in Laundry; Doesn't Pollute Environment

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I got this product as a free sample in the "freebies" category. I have been switching more and more to biodegradable based cleaning and laundry products. It is very sad to me that people use harsh chemicals to clean their homes and clothes when all those chemicals wash off into the water supply. It seems like such a waste. Products like this are a good alternative. This soup is biodegradable and won't damage the environment. I just wonder what would happen if everyone switched to more environmentally friendly cleaning products. It seems like the world would be much better off for it.

Blissful Smell; Makes You Want to Eat It

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product to use in the shower. The first thing I noticed when I received my iherb order was the amazing smell. The entire box smelled like pina coladas. The soap itself is of high quality, what you would expect from Nubian Heritage. And the price was also right in line. You can't get much more for less than $4. I'm just disappointed this product is now discontinued. I will use other Nubian Heritage products in the future.

Switched from NOW Spirulina; Great Quality True Hawaiian Spirulina

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

As I noted in my review of NOW Brand's Spirulina Powder, I decided to switch to this product after learning that NOW's Spirulina Powder, which was previously "100% Natural Hawaiian Spirulina", was switched to another type of Spirulina, not of Hawaiian origin. This product is likely the same Hawaiian Spirulina previously sourced also by NOW. From all the green foods products I have tried, Hawaiian Spirulina is by far one of the best. Compared to other Spirulina powders, this product is rich, vibrant, and actually quite refreshing tasting. The level of freshness is much higher than with other, cheaper Spirulina products. I take 30 grams of this Spirulina per day, divided into two 15 gram doses at breakfast and before bed. I do think it is helpful to take significantly more than the recommended dose to really notice the effects. I take this product along with Jarrow Formula's Chlorella. Since beginning to take this product, I have noticed a dramatic change in my energy level, ability to recover from strenuous exercise, increased ability to concentrate, and an overall sense of internal strength and well-being. I don't attribute miraculous effects to this product, but I do think the high levels of easily digestible protein, iron, vitamins, chlorophyll, gamma linolenic acid, and other properties make this product truly one of the most powerful and concentrated foods you can buy. An added benefit is that I haven't needed to take multi-vitamins since using this product, which saves money. I will continue to take this product daily and enjoy all the health benefits.

Good Bone Supplement, Will Purchase Cheaper Coral Calcium In Future

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I found this to be a solid bone building product overall, with a high price compared to others. The main downside of this product is the price. I don't doubt that this is a high quality product. While algae based calcium supplements are certainly worthwhile, I think there are cheaper alternatives such as coral calcium powder or MCHC bone building supplements that are just as effective and much cheaper. I bought this product on sale and wouldn't pay full price as I don't think the quality is significantly better than other products.

Healthy Superfoods Snack, Subtle Citrus Taste

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product to try as an afternoon snack at work. The product, like all of Navitas Natural's products, is loaded with superfood ingredients. The product has chia, maca, camu camu, and other solid ingredients. The taste is not especially sweet as there are no refined sugars in the product. You do noticed the citrus taste. It tastes to me like diluted citrus juice in water or orange tea. I like this product and enjoy the fact that, as a snack, it's like eating some great whole foods. I will order this product again.

Nice Feel and Scent for Men; No Cuts During Shaving

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I purchased this product to use for shaving. I have used many of Alba Botanicals products previously. This product is a great value. One tube will last me for 3 or 4 months of shaving several times per week. The mango scent is subtle and not overpowering, which is important for a man who doesn't want to smell like a bottle of lotion. The shave cream allows for a smooth and clean shave without cuts. I also will sometimes use this product as a general moisturiser if I'm in a hurry. Highly recommended!

Great Product; More Mild Taste than Other Brands

Posted on Aug 16, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I took this product several times a week for 2 years. I found this to be one of the better green foods product on the market. While not quite up to the quality of products such as HealthForce Nutritionals and others, this is a solid all-around green foods blend that I would recommend for people seeking a boost in energy without having to take a strong tasting green foods drink. I found the taste of this product to be quite mild compared to some stronger blends. There is some concord grape used to sweeten the product, which is preferable to stevia and is something you can notice when you drink it. I would recommend this product as a nice introduction for those new to green foods drinks who want to try something without a strong taste. It's also a nice value in the larger size, just be sure to keep in the freeze for the longest freshness.

Useful on Feet Before Marathon Races

Posted on Aug 15, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I use this product on my feet before long training runs and races. I haven't had any problems with blisters since I've used this produce. I find it makes my feet soft and resistant to moisture. It also works great after long runs to moisturize and cool down my feet. If you are interested in outdoor activities or running, I would recommend this product as a good buy to keep blisters away.
