I have spent the last couple of years searching for a deodorant that is not an anti-perspirant, too. Whether or not the medical establishment wants to get behind it, my family believes there is a link with cancer, and specifically breast cancer (we were created to sweat!) While deodorants are getting easier to find, the products out there do NOT work for me. I would have to wash and reapply halfway through a normal day...and forget about those hot days! This product I use once in the morning after showering, and I'm good all the way through until the next morning.
I have been taking this for about 4 years, since my nutritionist recommended it. It is the only product that keeps my potassium levels up in the normal range. I feel more energized, my bowels are better and it helps keep my nodular thyroid disease under control. The taste takes a little getting used to, and sometimes it's difficult to get it in 15 minutes before eating, but it is absolutely wonderful! In all four years I have also never found a better price than I get from IHerb.
Since we stopped using fluoride, we had been using PerioPaste, but we were getting frustrated with it being so thick we couldn't get it out of the tube, so we tried this. It works great, more foam than I'm used to, but the Periopaste doesn't foam at all, so maybe that's me. My teeth feel very clean and the freshness lasts a long time.
Tried the orange scent and liked it, but I LOVE the grapefruit.
Have tried orange and grapefruit scents, too, this is clean smelling, but I don't really like it for the kitchen (I prefer grapefruit or orange). It would be great in the bathroom.
I've been using this for a while, and while it tastes good, we are still trying to figure out how to adjust the ratio of milk to starter. We drink raw goat's milk and it makes the yogurt runny. If you run it longer to firm it up, it is much too sour, and we need to add sweetener. I wish that they would include directions for use with goat milk, like some of the kefir starters do.
I have used this on my son for mosquito bites and it works like a charm. I even tried it on a friends 2 year old who gets huge welts from mosquitoes and the welt and itch disappeared immediately. My husband tried it on a ground bee sting and said it didn't really work for that.
Haven't tried it yet, but have used many of Boiron's products. I assume that this will work just as well.
