Anne P. My husband and I started using the herbs over a year ago. I have some spinal problems and have found that the Bone and Joint Tonic has been very helpful to alleviate pain and swelling in my back. The change is not immediate; the herbs have to be used over a few days consistently to create change. Nonetheless, it is so refreshing to know that the change is not from medicine that have suppressed pain, but it's from the herbs working with my body to create health through nutrients that my body has been needing to allow it to heal and change to be healthy. We also use the Calcium Tonic, since we have changed our diet to have more whole fruits and vegetables with less breads, milk, and cheese. I have found we have less calcium in our diet and have been desiring to have more, thus the Calcium Tonic has been very helpful especially if one plans on being pregnant. The Whole Body Tonic my husband uses daily like a vitamin and we both use the Whole Body Tonic if we feel we are starting to get sick or be run down. It gives our bodies an extra boost to prevent and fight off the sickness. We both use the Women's Tonic, both my husband and I for different reasons. My husband uses it more as a sleep aid. He works nights and the tonic helps him to get to sleep faster and sleep a bit better in the day. I have used it for iron needs and mellowing out my emotions during menstruation. I have also found it helps with fertility, if one is desiring to start a family and having trouble. I would suggest adding this tonic into your daily routine. We found that we like taking the herbs best in a glass of water. We just measure out the herbs and put some water in a glass and drink. Then follow up with another glass of water without herbs to wash it down. It is the cheapest way, very easy to prepare, and is quick. Most of the herbs don't have a really strong taste. Except the Whole Body Tonic does have that extra kick at the end. So having extra water would be best. I have been very pleased with the herbs. I know they have helped create health and healing in our bodies.
