Excellent product that actually works. None better than Herb-Pharm out there.

I had read about the strong pain relieving benefits of Jamaican Dogwood, in combination with Feverfew, years ago. I suffered from excruciating back pain from several traumatic injuries over the years. Virtually all of the local vitamin/herb shops in my area no longer carried Herb-Pharm products, the sales & marketing double talkers of the big corporate herbal companies had made sure their products filled the shelves. I tried Gaia Herbs and another companies JD/Feverfew compound and started questioning the source of my information on it's effectiveness, it did nothing for me. Having re-discovered Herb-Pharm products a few years ago, shopping on iherb and noticing the label from so long ago that made me a believer in herbal healing in the first place, then making note of the significant difference in the quality and actual effectiveness of their products, I still only gave the Jamaican Dogwood passing glances. After recently discovering Ed Smith's (One of the founders of Herb-Pharm) podcasts and hearing him talk about J. Dogwood, I gave it another try. Finally a product that lives up to the claims. It does well on it's own for some things & is fantastic in combination with Feverfew for others. It is now on my list of herbs I will never be without and one of the first things to go in my travel case. So much more than just a pain killer. J. Dogwood is actually a nerve sedative & anti-spasmodic. And a very strong one at that, when it's made well with high quality plant source to start. I suffer, and I can't over emphasize the word "suffer" enough, with a Hiatal Hernia. [The top of the stomach, where the esophagus connects to it after it passes through your diaphragm herniates/spasms and pushes up through the hole in the diaphragm, making it hard to breath deeply & when really bad, tearing it open more.] This also gets exacerbated by gallbladder colic and can feel like you've been shot in the stomach or causes a burning pain in the spine just opposite the diaphragm. Before I knew better, it had put me in the hospital twice. After hearing on the podcast that the J.Dogwood is good for intestinal/gallbladder colic, I tried it when I had a bad flair up and couldn't believe how quickly it resolved. It was like finding the key to a lifelong prison cell. In combination with Feverfew, it is a powerhouse for my back & joint pain. The sedative properties also help you sleep well & are beneficial for Neuralgia and said to allay delirium caused by high fevers & drug/alcohol withdrawal. It is a fairly strong sedative, so requires some caution, especially with children or aged/feeble adults. Do your research & get two bottles, your never going to want to be without it again.

Hubs has used this for pain from shingles and I have used it for help with migraine pain. If you get migraine you know nothing is a cure all, but this does help take it down a notch. For shingles, Hubs has found the Willow Meadowsweet blend works better than the JD by itself.

I believe this product has helped me fall asleep easier, although it doesn't seem to last more than a few hours.
