Oxygenating and chelating benefits and much more
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 10, 2012 | Verified Purchase
There is a little booklet called "Germanium: A New Approach to Immunity" that I bought for a few dollars to learn more about this mineral. I was initially interested because of reported oxygen enhancing benefits, and there are many other reported health benefits as well. Do your research, and check with your own health team to see if this supplement may be right for you.
Antiviral wellness in a bottle
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 26, 2012 | Verified Purchase
I love elderberry extract. It has kept me and my loved ones well when others around us were felled by colds and coughs. I have cut sugar way out of my eating plan, though, so the delicious Sambucol syrup I used to use is no longer an option for me. I'm very grateful to be able to get the healing goodness of elderberry in easy to take tablets, sugar-free. I love this Wellness line of products, each one I have tried is outstanding.
LLMD recommended to help with toxins, herxes
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 27, 2012 | Verified Purchase
Someone in my life has chronic Lyme, and is finally seeing a Lyme literate MD (LLMD) after many years of misdiagnosis and lack of treatment. I had only heard of activated charcoal being used in hospitals for people who overdose on medication, so I was skeptical. The charcoal binds the toxins and helps to pass them out of the body. It binds whatever else as well, so take a couple hours apart from whatever medication and supplements you are taking, with plenty of water. I have used internally and broke open a capsule to use externally on spider bites, etc. Please do not EVER put off going to the ER for any medical emergency. An important addition to any medicine cabinet. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Heal well! :)
Recommended by MD after lab work showed parasite

Someone in my world has digestive ills, and and out of state lab showed a giardia-type parasite. The MD who suggested this product has a good knowledge of functional and alternative medicine. It took more than one bottle, but it made a big difference.
Frankincense and myrrh scent is what I like best about this product
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 14, 2012 | Verified Purchase
I love Indigo Wild, especially their frankincense and myrrh products. Their frankincense and myrrh liquid soap is a favorite of mine for fragrant showers and soft skin. This tin of solid moisturizers is nice too, and the fragrance is more subtle than that of the liquid soap. I don't rely on this product as a heavy-duty moisturizer for winter chapped hands or anything like that, but as a regular skin softening rub with a delicious scent I really like it.
Too hard to swallow--there are other good multis out there for me

I bought these on Super Special, and the price just could not be beat. I can't see myself buying the Just Once Women's One again though, even on Super Special. I find them very, very hard to swallow--they are hard, dry and large.
Surrounded at work by sick people, this was my secret weapon for staying well!
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 31, 2012 | Verified Purchase
I'm very grateful actually that my co-worker shared her secret weapon against sickness: Source Naturals Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex. We just called it "Wellness" for short, and that's how it always felt to me. I had noticed that my friend never seemed to be out sick as often as everyone else, and I asked her why. We worked with a lot of very sick clients with all sorts of health conditions, and co-workers were regularly calling in sick with everything that was going around from colds and flu to stomach virus and more. I agree with another reviewer who pointed out that these tablets are especially helpful when taken at the first signs that you are getting sick or feeling unwell. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Here's to your own fabulous wellness! :)
Great price for Organic Ceylon Cinnamon!
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 15, 2012 | Verified Purchase
I have a hard time finding organic Ceylon Cinnamon in local stores, especially at a great price like this. It wasn't too long ago that I learned that not all cinnamon is created equal, and that Ceylon cinnamon, also known as "true cinnamon" had the health benefits as well as complex taste I was seeking. Delicious, smoother and almost sweeter compared to Cassia cinnamon. I use it daily when I brew coffee to take out the bitterness.
Very, very calming and soothing

I have loved this beautifully scented lavender oil for so many purposes. Years ago I worked at a flower shop, and we kept some very diluted in a spray bottle full of water behind the counter. When it was a hectic florist holiday or we just needed a little "ahhhhhhhh!" we would spritz some into the air around us, and all would sigh happily and relax. The wonderful light fresh scent would not clash or compete with the smells of fresh flowers, plants or wet earth in the store. Spritzed in the bedroom at night it's relaxing and soothing. You can also use it to make inexpensive but pampering gifts like Epsom salt or sugar based scrubs that you can package in a pretty jar tied with a ribbon. Add some carrier oil and lavender with or without other scents. Recipes are widely available online. Most essential oils need some dilution to be used on the skin without irritating, but many folks who have sensitive skin can use lavender undiluted. Try it diluted first and/or do a patch test on your skin. Very helpful also for healing scars. I highly recommend this oil.
May help with Lyme biofilm removal--talk to your LLMD or other Lyme literate practitioner
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase
Someone in my life has chronic Lyme disease, so I try to learn all I can to help. Herbalist Stephen Buhner, author of "Healing Lyme" and many other excellent books also has a specific website to address healing Lyme. That's where I first learned of nattokinase used to remove Lyme biofilm. I appreciate that nattokinase is made from fermented soybeans. I know that some folks rave about lumbrokinase, but I can't deal with the thought of a supplement made from worm by-products. Nattokinase is also *much* more affordable. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, especially with any chronic or serious illness. "LLMD" stands for "Lyme literate medical doctor," someone who has more experience in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease. Lyme manifests differently in people, often with different co-infections, so what is right for one (or at one stage of the game) might not be right for another. Take good care of yourself, and heal well! :)
