this stuff really works

I found out about this herb through the recommendation of Andreas Moritz, an Ayurvedic practioner. He recommends using it in some of his books. Read "The Amazing Liver Cleanse", and use this herb along with eating plenty of apples. I couldn't believe how many liver and gallstones were evacuated using this herb! And the size of some of them were about twice the size of golf balls! Doing the cleanse got rid of my hayfever that I had suffered from for 10 years; alleviated my lactose intolerance; virtually eradicated of the residual effects of a serious knee injury(i've been able to do my regular serious running routine again - I'm a 2:30 marathoner); improved mental focus and energy; reduced my basal stress level; helped me maintain lean muscle mass and kept the fat off(the liver regulates hormone levels); and kept my GI tract feeling very comfortable. can't recommend it highly enough.
roasted a bit too much for my liking
this chicory is roasted a bit too dark for my liking, but it does give a pretty satisfying taste.
great for salad dressing
add 1 part Nutiva Organic Hemp Oil + 1 part organic olive oil + 1 part organic apple cider vinegar + organic italian seasoning mix + sea salt; it makes a delectable salad dressing!
the plastic tip at the bottom helps the candle to maintain its integrity, so that it is more effective in evacuating the ear canal and sinuses. One should massage the whole side of one's face while the candle is burning, and this helps to clean the sinuses by loosening up the gunk more easily.
wheat content may be too high for some

if you are on a gluten avoidance diet, this isn't for you, but otherwise it's a good tasting and healthy alternative to those bleached flours.
I'm not a big fan of the brand in general, because one can usually find products that are sourced better, but this one seems to be a decent product.
use this with MSM

I use this with Jarrow's MSM powder and my skin and joints have improved noticeably.
made my symptoms worse
I had almost gotten rid of my hayfever allergies through a combination of urine therapy(drinking one glass of my morning urine every day), liver flushing(following the method described in Andreas Moritz's book "The Amazing Liver Cleanse"), and Himalaya USA's Guduchi. Just thought I'd try this product to see if it would help, but just made the symptoms worse. Maybe it works for people with severe symptoms, but if you are well on the way to getting rid of the symptoms, this formula of homeopathic substances could actually aggravate the symptoms you already have; and it does seem to make you dependent on it, though it is not in any way addictive.
aromatic, romantic, and nice flavor
gave this to my wife for her birthday, and she loved it. The flowering teas look great too!
cleaned out my sinuses too
upon unravelling the candle after use, i was surprised to find what looked to be a great deal of Chinese yellow dust (composed of toxic industrial pollutants) inside. One day, I'd like to take it into a laboratory to have the contents examined scientifically.
