I had been using this at bedtime to attempt improve sleep quality - possibly somewhat helpful, possibly not. Nothing remarkable at any rate, at a dose of 15 pills. (I'm using other tonic formulae during the day.) One night, decided to dissolve these pills in water for a more pronounced effect. I was surprised that there was no sweet component to the taste at all that I could detect, in spite of the fact that the formula contains a number of sweet-tasting herbs: Astragalus, Codonopsis, Longan, Baked Licorice, and Red Date. Also, Tang-Kuei has a particular taste that stands out, and this was not noted. So I would not consider using this version where tonifying deficiency was a desirable property. And frankly, I wondered if the contents matched the description.
As a matter of comparison, I prepared Gui Pi Tang from single 5:1 extracts. A different taste entirely.
Disadvantages: May not contain what it says it does.
I’ve had these ear seeds for a few months now and I noticed the adhesive start to melt/stick to the plastic it came on (starting maybe a month ago) This makes the ear seeds less sticky which is really frustrating. My friend also ordered the same brand and had the same issue. I tried another brand that I really liked and the adhesive was fantastic, but the seed size was way too tiny. I will say the seed size on this product is the perfect size and give amazing stimulation. Just wish the adhesive was better and that there was a clear option offered.
Advantages: Seed size
Disadvantages: Adhesive deteriorates and sticks to packaging making it hard to take the seeds off and also in turn make the seeds not sticky anymore.
I just received my first DUX ear pellets (silver) and immediately fell in LOVE with them. The way they are packaged is high quality and they attach to the ear with a breeze. I will never use a different brand!
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.
