This almost killed me. I was reading all the good affect about this Indian old medicine, and I wanted to try Triphala. Since all my website research said it will cure cold, flu, and detoxify liver and so on, I thought it will be good. I had a very bad flu when I was taking it and hoping this to help out. Ever since I take it, it just make my energy level incredibly low, I was not even able to climb up to the 2nd floor of my house. Breathing was really hard. I was taking it for about more than a week, and I stopped. I stopped everything I was taking because I thought something (from whatever I am taking) is not helping me to improve my flu. Even at this point, I didn't think it was Triphala. I didn't know why I am not getting better. It is very strange, people just usually sick for a week at the most (if flu or anything), and get better, but, I was sick for whole month, and still didn't get better. Still very low in energy, and hard to breath. I thought I was getting old or something. Then, after few weeks I got better, but not to the full strength, but I was doing the normal task. And I thought I maybe try Triphila again.. Just suggested dose.. and just once. And guess what, I came back to the exactly the same stage when I had an extremely low level energy. My face become so pale, looks like a ghost, and so low in energy, hard to breath, and cannot even go up the 2nd floor, and coughing like crazy all of sudden. So, I stopped. Then, it took few days to recover. I think this is serious, and nobody reported any side affect on this. Hope it didn't do any long term damage for my body. I think I shouldn't be too brave to try new herb.

First, when I put it on, I kind of felt little bit of burning sensation and dryness. So, I stopped using it for my face and was going to use it as body cream. However, I recently had a skin trouble (allergic reaction) from one of my cosmetic product, and I just tried this cream again by knowing that aloe Vera is a good healing ingredient for the skin. Then, wow… it really did heal my skin in very short period time. Not only that, it made my skin dewy, and made it so soft. I was keep using it since then. Before, I was putting so many different things to the skin. Once I clean it with the cleanser, then, I put face tonner, then, serum, then, eye cream, and couple of different creams. Sometimes, more…. Now, I am only using eye cream (other brand) and this aloe Vera cream, and I feel my skin condition is much better. First, you might feel little dryness with this cream, but, actually, I think it hydrates better than any other cream that I have used.

Since everyone says that aronia is a supper food, and I thought I give a try. It gives me a chest pain, and makes me cough really bad. Also, it gives me a stomach upset and headache. I thought it was because my condition was really bad when I was taking it (that is why I wanted to take aronia , so I can get some energy), but... I tried again few days later, it rather make me sick than better. Makes me cough like crazy .. Will have to give away.
