This stuff has taken alot of my desire to binge eat away, and it has also helped take alot of my desire to compulsively overeat away, which makes dieting much easier to say the least! It is also taken my psoriasis away about 85% off of my eyes, hands. It is amazing. A few days after I started the Inositol, it started smoothing over. A wonderful side effect, that steroids cant hardly do very well!

I started my baby on this soon after I quit giving her breastmilk, around 6 weeks or so. I worked up to 1/4 tsp PER BOTTLE, so she got about 1 1/2 - 2 tsp of this powder per day. WOW WOW WOW! This stuff works, TOTALLY WORKS. My baby was sooo healthy, while others had the stomach flu, she would bypass it. When others had a cold, she would only get a lighter case of it. She was really healthy for a formula fed baby. I took her off it at 11 months or so, and she began to be much sicker. She started having a continous runny nose, colds, congestion, and she even had to be put in the hospital. IF ONLY I WOULD HAVE KEPT GIVING HER REUTERI POWDER< she might have bypassed all this and been healthy as she was before. Anyone who has a formula fed baby, THIS IS A MUST! It will make your baby healthy, and smooth out her digestive system. Just a little in each bottle, makes a huge difference! TRY IT YOU'LL SEE UPDATE: I had another baby, who is now 6 weeks old and had colic she would scream and fuss on and off for hours! I exclusivly pump breast milk and feed her in a bottle. So I add 1 1/2 tsp to one bottle per day or so, Its been about a week and she is getting better! Plus her goopy eye cleared up, Reuteri boosts the immune system, I look forward to giving this to my baby throughout her baby and possibly toddler years for a boosted immune system and better digestive health! It works!

I am already on a new Lifestyle of eating when I am hungry, stopping when I am full or ( not hungry) is kind of my goals. I added in Vital Wieght loss Xl, and all of a sudden it has boosted my weight loss! MY chiropractor said my thyroid was weak, but the lab tests from the doctor they told me were normal. I figured there was something going on with my metabolism. Within a day or so after starting taking this, I ovulated, too, and I have PCOS. This stuff is supposed to help Endocrine problems, and that is the main thing with PCOS, it is an endocrine problem. This also contains ingredients to boost the thyroid, and help keep water retention at bay! It works, but dont try it if you are just going to pig out, its best if you are already trying to lose wieght and add this to what you are doing, and you will probably notice a boost in your wieght loss!

I am taking this for its high Vitamin K content, for preventing hemmorhaging, for recuperating after birth. I am starting at 1/8-1/4 tsp and adding 1/8-14 tsp each week until I get to 1-2 Tablespoons. Barley grass is supposed to make a healthy placenta, and this is very close to barley grass. Also this is high in Chlorrophyl and other nutrients and enzymes....good for the baby and mom!

Well, I have been taking Femaprin for over a month now. It made me ovulate, which is an amazing thing. I have not ovulated when I was this overwieght for almost 6 years. I always had to lose weight to ovulate in the last years. Well, Femaprin made it so that I am ovulating even though I am not skinny! I have PCOS, so I am hopeful that I will have regular cycles. I do have a tip for Femaprin takers: take it in the morning, the same time every day, and make sure you dont skip a day. It can mess up how Femaprin works! A NOTE: Femaprin Takes a minimum of 3-6 months to realize the full benefits. It is a slow acting herb. Do not give up until you have taken this for at least 90 days.

I cant give this 5 stars because I used this 1 tsp every 2 hours on my son, and he just wasnt giving enough improvement in his cold, until I swithced to another immune booster. But I will say it is excellent forcoughing. It stops it pretty fast. I give it for coughing and croup. Also I think if you used it daily to prevent illness, it would help. MAKE YOUR OWN SYRUP LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!! Put 4 cups water and 2 cups dried elderberries in the crockpot on Warm. Heat in crockpot for 24 to 36 hours on warm. Mash and strain berries out. Cool. Add: 1.7 oz bottle of Echinamide, a bottle (100 capsules) of NOW brand Propolis (empty them into the syrup), 1 cup Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup Raw Honey, and Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract 20 drops. Store in Refrigerator till cool. Dosages are 1 Tablespoon for Adult Matenience, and 1 T. every two hours when sick. Children ages 6-12 2 tsp per day to prevent, and 2 tsp every 2 hours when sick. Children ages 1-5 1 tsp per day to prevent and 1 tsp every two hours when sick. This works out to around 4.00 for an 8 oz jar of syrup

I take 2-3 capsules of NOW propolis and 1,000-2,000 mg of Vitamin C every 2 hours. IT works, I tell you. I just did 2 caps propolis with 1 gram of C every 2 hours aprox and almost completly prevented my cold from happening. I have very minor symptoms. You can use this for mastitis, bronchitis, flu, anything. I have given propolis to my 2-3 year old daughter in applesauce for cold/croup. This product is really good. Also, be sure to take this dose for 3-4 days or more to make sure you are over the cold or whatever!!

These are a good probiotic supplement. One tiny little pearl a day. I am pregnant, and studies show that moms who take Rueteri during the last 4 weeks of pregnancy have babies with less excema, also helps prevent Asthma, respirtory infections and colic in the baby. Its so worth it to take one little pill a day for all those good things!

This stuff is good for pregnancy, strengthen uteurs. For the recipe to be used before, during after pregnancy. Susan Weed Recipe... 1 oz (1 cup or so) Raspberry leaves in a quart Jar, Pour over boiling water. Let set 4-8 hours. Drink 1 cup 1st trimester, 2 cups 2nd Trimester, 3 cups 3rd Trimester During Labor, 1 cup leaves to 2 cups water. Steep 30 minutes and drink, for less pain and fast delivery. A midwife said, Anything less than 1/2 cup red raspberry leaves to a quart isnt enough to work! GOogle the Red Raspberry Leaf Tribe for lots more info. You will get the most results with using 1 cup red raspberry leaf to a quart of water at least through the last several weeks, work up to that much through the whole pregnancy. Take with Magnesium or cramp bark if you have too many braxton hicks.
