good for memory, bad for migraines

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Mar 07, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I started seeing improvements in memory in less than a week! Particularly in the areas of aphasia (not being able to think of a word) and in those senior moments of walking into a room and forgetting why I was there. Unfortunately, after about 10 days, it started triggering my migraines. I should mention that many things trigger me, and I generally do a good job of prevention that gets it down to 1, maybe 2 migraines per month. This product triggered a 3rd in the month, so I reluctantly stopped using it.

Thanks for your feedback!

really lovely, but could be packaged better

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Jul 07, 2008 | Verified Purchase

This liquid soap can be used as a bodywash, delicate clothes wash, general purpose cleaner (for counters, etc.). The Shea Butter makes it rich and creamy, and the lavender scent is just right - fresh and light, not overwhelming. My only objection is the packaging - iHerb put it in a ziplock bag, which is good because several ounces leaked out! Other sites ship liquids like this by securely wrapping tape around the bottom of the cap, and that would probably work better here.

Thanks for your feedback!

vet recommended it for my dog!

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Aug 02, 2014 | Verified Purchase

My Standard Poodle has a long-standing problem with his nose: it gets crusty looking and splits. Vet says it is most likely a localized autoimmune problem, and recommended vitamin E oil. I have tried all sorts of oils and moisturizers on his nose, and this vitamin E oil definitely works the best of all of them. I can't believe I bought so many expensive items, and this inexpensive oil solved the problem! What's more, my dog loves it - not only will he sit expectantly while I open the bottle, he licks the oil off my fingers after I've spread it on his nose!

Thanks for your feedback!

Whew! overpowering scent

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Jul 07, 2008 | Verified Purchase

I couldn't even unwrap this bar. The floral scent is so overwhelming - my eyes were watering and I was sneezing (call me crazy, but I think one's soap shouldn't cause hayfever!). Couldn't detect any lavender in the mix, though.

Thanks for your feedback!

good for more than joints

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Aug 02, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I started taking a lower dosage of MSM as an addition to the glucosamine etc. that I've been taking for my arthritic knee. A trainer told me that higher doses have helped some of his clients with seasonal allergies, so I gave it a try. I take 2 capsules twice a day, and it really does help the sniffles and itchy, runny eyes! When I skip a day, I really notice it.

Thanks for your feedback!

very good hand cream

Really is pure enough for me - I have MCS. Not too greasy, soaks in relatively quickly.

life-saver for fibromyalgia

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Dec 17, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I've used this for over 25 years, and wouldn't be without it! It is odorless, non-greasy, quickly absorbed, and REALLY takes away aches and pains of soft tissue. It also helps somewhat for joints (I have an arthritic knee). Yes, it's pricey, but a little goes a long way and it's worth every penny. There are some days I wish it came it 55-gallon drums so I could just immerse myself in the stuff. I definitely recommend it to all my friends.

Thanks for your feedback!

especially good for "storm coming" FM pain

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Jan 17, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I don't take this all the time, just when needed. My FM flares up significantly when a storm front is moving in, and also when the weather is both cold and damp. Vitalaxin is the ONLY thing I've found that helps me when that happens! It's also great for those nights when the FM pain is making it hard to get to sleep - although it doesn't make me sleepy, the Vitalaxin relaxes the muscles enough to relieve the pain and let me fall asleep.

Thanks for your feedback!

unbelievably tasty!

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Aug 02, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Warning: this stuff may be addictive ;) I tend to eat the whole bag at one sitting. The Wasabi flavor is also good, but the Caesar is my favorite.

Thanks for your feedback!

really delicious!

Posted by AndreaFrankel on Dec 17, 2013 | Verified Purchase

If you like English breakfast-type teas, you will love this one. It's a very clean flavor, very mild, but you can brew it strong enough to stand up to milk.

Thanks for your feedback!
