That the potency of the 3 major components are shown in 3 separate units seems a deliberate attempt to obfuscate comparison with other products using USP units. For exampe, one FIP unit of lipase is only 1/3 USP unit.
See fig 14. 4 at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6913179/
Advantages: No experience yet, but the wide pH efficacy seems advantageous, especially of insufficient pancreatic bicarbonate secretion fails to alkalize acid chyme. released into the duodenum
Disadvantages: Label is obfuscatory. Put it ALL in standard USP units of enzyme activity, so we know what we're getting without crawling the internet to convert units.
Advantages: No latex, effective combination of herbs, easy to apply, can be cut to fit smaller areas or specific points, easily portable. These are also a great add-on to relieve tenderness after orthopedic needling.
Disadvantages: Only an issue on hairy areas, but this is true of ALL patches. Their cream or poultice (depending on presentation) is a nice companion/alternative for areas that are too difficult to treat with the patch (e.g.- around joints).
I've used Bio Essence Herbs for decades. There products are first rate. This particular formula is one of the most valuable. How many patients I've seen with hip, leg, lower bck where acupuncture is only partially effective, using kidney yang herbs because there is coldness, is also a problem but the pain persists -- Pain is blockage and this formula is phenomenal and irreplaceable for lower warmer blood stagnation with pain. i might also prescribe it with youg gui wan.
The only natural remedy that has worked for my mother’s 12 year old aussiedoodle. They live in a rural area and Brisby has always had high anxiety about thunderstorms, fireworks and gun shots until recently. K-9 Madness beats storm shirts, flower essences, homeopathics, etc. Highly recommend!
Advantages: Just a light dusting as indicated on the instructions is all it takes. Amazing!
I received a sample of this in a Golden Needle shipment. I was immediately drawn in by the eye catching promo card and curious about the product. After diffusing through the night, I woke from a peaceful sleep breathing deeply and easily with Lungs refreshed. I was very impressed! This is my go to mineral blend anytime I feel my Lungs need general support. You must check out OHM's website as it will open up a world to you! OHM's customer service is excellent as well! Ruth Findlay has a wealth of knowledge and a gift for healing with stones.
Personally, I am a huge fan of OHM's products. I have been using them since Christmas 2020 and the recent addition of Just. Add.Aloe+ELements has become the basis of my daily self care routine. Within a month of using this product daily and a few simple OHM recommendations, I have staved off migraines by addressing a recurrent Bi Syndrome pattern affecting the Tai Yang level! I placed my clinic order last week and plan to carry Just.Add.Aloe+Elements for my patients crucial self care.
Advantages: I like to take daily baths and soak in OHM's mineral bath blends, especially Elements. When I can't take a bath, this is the next best thing. Extremely convenient and a little goes a long way!
Disadvantages: On cold and even cool mornings, the aloe can feel really cold. I applied after a warm shower while pores were open and this felt less shocking.
My cat loves this blend, I either mix it into wet food or sprinkle it on to and she will even lick it off my fingers! She is 17yo and I got this supplement to help her over the cold damp winter along with Revitalize from Wapiti labs. I recommend it!
Excellent for a variety of muscular pain issues. Unlike other products, it has a nice balance of warming and cooling not leaving the patient feeling chilled. I use this when cupping and with Tui Na mixing it, at times with an unscented lotion. I also sell as much as I use. People love this product!
A little goes a long way
Most patients love the scent
Disadvantages: Can stain clothing
Scent can be too much for some, and too much if they are returning to work after treatment
I bought a starter pack, with the rechargeable vaping piece and 2 cartridges, as well as an additional cartridge. I absolutely charged the vaping unit to the manufacturer's specified time. All 3 cartridges worked AMAZINGLY for about 5-7 puffs (each dose is 3 puffs, with a recommended frequency of 3 x's/day), then they just wouldn't output. I have interchanged the cartridges multiple times, which have plenty of oil still visible in the window. I've also recharged the unit, which had plenty of power anyway. This was a complete waste of my money.
The masks that arrived look different than what is pictured. The markings on the mask are different. The nose wire is much thinner, and is hidden within the material rather than on the outside as shown. The nose wire so thin and weak, it does NOT create a good seal around the nose. The outer box looked the same as advertised, but the masks themselves look and feel much cheaper. I can feel air movement in and out around the edges when breathing; you could probably tighten the ear loops to get a better seal. The poor seal also allows my glasses to fog up, which doesn't happen with a properly fitting filtration mask. Probably still better than a cloth mask but would try a different brand, honestly.
I really enjoy this supplement. When it says unflavored, it means it! That's really convenient because I can add it to things I bake for my kid (like cookies/muffins)or add it to his smoothie and he has no idea it's in there. I personally like it with matcha tea, almond milk and premier protein shake blended with ice. It makes a delicious healthy matcha frap
Love it! I tried this on a whim and am glad I did. I've also purchased it as a gift for other acupuncturists to try out.
Advantages: Really nice absorption versus glide. Good combination of traits for bodywork, gua sha and/or slide-cupping.
Disadvantages: Ingredients (in English) are not on the packaging, I had to copy them from this website. The packaging is a little clumsy (with the open neck you can pour too much out), but I transferred the product into a spray bottle. That helps to maintain product hygiene, control the amount of product dispensed and prevent spills. (NOTE: the label came off the original bottle pretty easily, so I just taped it to my chosen dispenser)
Advantages: These granules smell and taste like shan zha. Min Tong is my absolute favorite brand of shan zha granules and my patients prefer the flavor over raw herbs when used as a single. It is easy to add into other foods sauces (e.g.- sprinkle some in your cranberry salad or sauce at Thanksgiving time...).
