you very much for helping me overcome my Chronic Fatigue
has only been four weeks so far, but Im feeling incredibly
better. I had been sick for a year and a half, and even
though I had been improving it was so slow that it was almost
unnoticeable. I could tell I was better than I had been
a year ago, but I couldnt tell if I was improved from
two months ago.
I started on the herbs I was able to notice improvement
in the first 48 hours, and it keeps getting stronger each
day. My only real problem with the herb therapy is I feel
so much better I forget to rest as much as you said I should.
must admit I was rather skeptical when you told me I should
not exercise during this therapy. I thought the exercise
was the only thing that was keeping me going. My heart used
to race rapidly for no apparent reason and I thought walking
I started the herbs and began to feel better so soon, I
thought I would try following the rest of your advise and
stop exercising. I was really surprised at the results!
My heart does not race anymore and I can now make it upstairs
at home and at work without getting out of breath anymore.
used to wake up six to ten times during the night, but now
I fall asleep easily and sleep through the night.
had thought I might be sick for many more months, or even
years at the rate I was going. I still have a ways to go,
but now I realize it is almost over.
husband, my parents, two co-workers, and a friend were so
impressed with my results that they are now firm believers
in herbs and will be coming to see you for their own ailments.
dont know what I would have done if I hadnt
you very much, Jill
I first visited Herbs & More, I had felt terrible for
such a long time that I really didnt realize how bad
I truly was. I was so exhausted all the time. I woke up
tired and hurt all over. The doctor told me I was in great
shape, and should continue my aerobics and occasional jogging.
The problem was, when I exercised, I had no energy left
for anything else. Vitamins didnt help at all and
seemed to make a constipation problem even worse. I wasnt
sleeping and suffered from muscle cramps, so the doctor
prescribed a mild tranquilizer. I was drinking coffee and
craved sugar and sweets.
sitting down with Steve for an Iridoligy reading, he put
me on a program of herbs and rest. Everything he said made
sense to me and so I followed his advise exactly. I began
to feel better around the second week and at the end of
the first month, could see a tremendous difference in my
energy level and all over feeling of well being. I gave
up the coffee and no longer crave sweets. Its been
about six weeks now and I am beginning to sleep well. When
I get up in the morning now I feel good and my energy level
is still increasing. Im looking forward to being in
good health and am grateful to Steve for all his advise
and especially for caring.
Herbs & More,
am 19 years old and came to Steve one day to pick up some
simple herbs and while I was there I thought I would ask
him if he could recommend a product for my acne problems.
Id tried every doctor and every medicine possible,
and nothing worked until the herbs Steve gave me (Female Comfort with
Dong Quai). After that I came to Steve with all of my problems.
For about five years I have been feeling extremely tired,
moody, and had problems concentrating on my school work.
Steve put me on a program for about four months. I had to
completely stop exercising while I took my herbs, and I
was so worried I would gain weight and nothing would change.
Was I ever wrong! I actually lost weight because for once
my body was balancing itself out!
I feel wonderful. I have more energy than I ever imagined
possible. I used to be a bit skeptical of herbs because
society raises you to believe medicines and doctors are
the only ones that can cure your problems. I now have more
faith in Steve than any of my doctors!
he has done for me has truly been a miracle. I will always
come back to him.
being on the Chronic Fatigue herbal program in
June, there has definitely been a change in the way I feel.
sleep much better and more soundly. I was waking numerous
times during the night, and then having difficulty getting
up when the alarm went off. Now, even though I wake up,
I am able to sleep in a deeper state and, therefore, feel
rested when I wake.
energy level is much higher. Not only do I have more energy,
but the level of energy itself is higher. I have to be careful
and make myself stop BEFORE I get tired as I have a habit
of going as long as I feel I can. Now, I limit myself BEFORE
feel more alert and as if my mind is much clearer. Before
it was as if I was almost in a fog-like state.
I am tired, it is a "healthy" tired. Before I
would be so tired that I would almost be sick sore
throat and that would tell me I needed extra rest.
is a feeling of relaxation more of an even feeling,
bot so much emotions up and down even though there
is the same amount of stress, etc.
but not least, my nails are in the best condition I have
ever had them
I first came to see Steve I was in bad shape, suffering
from Chronic Fatigue and Candidiasis. I had been on an anti-candida
program for at least four months. Dairy, fruit, sugar, and
carbohydrates were all eliminated from my diet, which didnt
leave me much else but protein and vegetables. I had also
tried treatment with nystatin, which had terrible side effects.
Neither program seemed to make any difference or improvement.
I was afraid my problem would never go away. Then I heard
about Herbs & More. At this point I had tried everything
and was open to any possible solution. At first I was uncertain
about how looking in my eyes and doing a muscle test would
determine my problems. I found out that I had been in a
switch condition, which had made my attempts to cure myself
useless, and my body just was not working right.
Steve figured out which herbs would work for me to change
back my switch condition. About four or five days after
I started taking the herbs I felt very tired and a little
achy, but about three or four days after that I progressively
began to feel better. My energy level increased and my candida
symptoms began to lessen and I slowly began to include a
larger diet, excluding sugar. Here I am two months later
on a maintenance dosage (only for a month) of my herbs,
for treatment of the switch condition, resting and not over
exerting myself is a very important part of treatment. I
have complete confidence that Steve will now be able to
help rid myself of my candida problem.
been on the "switch program" for about three weeks
now, and Ive already felt dramatic results. Ive
been suffering from Candida and Chronic Fatigue for about
one and a half years now (in an extreme way-my health hasnt
been great for about five years, though). Ive gone
to many medical doctors as well as acupuncturists, chiropractors,
etc. When I discovered chiropractics, I thought my health
problems were almost solved. I had such great results, but
my problems lingered and I discovered the "switch program".
Now, doing both, Im improving at a faster pace than
the last three weeks Ive felt less "yeasty"
and drained. I wake up more rested daily, my spirits are
better, I have more stamina at work (ie. I can go 5-6 hours
without feeling like my legs would buckle under me with
fatigue). And, most importantly, I have my mind back! My
Candida reactions to certain foods and certain allergens
caused me to space out and feel exhausted mentally. I had
memory problems and often felt like I could cry for almost
no reason. So, Im feeling more like myself every day.
It is wonderful and I hope to continue this improvement!
thought this would be a good time to let you know how Im
recharging as Im waiting for the cars
battery to be checked!
I walked into your store on Dec. 26, 1994 I remember feeling
so exhausted, after many years of working through various
family crisises. You assessed me as having a switch pattern,
chronic fatigue, depression, aching joints, lack of concentration,
etc. However, I also knew I needed another approach to my
health integration because the various other healing techniques
were helping, but not getting to the source of my problem.
been taking the herbs you recommended for almost four months,
and the difference I feel is remarkable. I noticed right
away that I could support my neck and head on my own, without
feeling I had to lie down on the floor all the time. My
back began getting stronger. I took your advise and rested
a lot, which was important, although it did prevent me from
working with clay a lot. In the long run it has paid off.
Throughout, I feel spirts of energy.
now can begin exercising again as my body is wanting it,
in the form of walking and swimming. Work is no longer a
struggle, mentally and physically, but I hadnt done
it in 15 years. I even laugh again!! My concentration is
much more focused and I dont feel that low feeling
of "depression" and feeling stuck.
physical therapist, who has been working with me on cranial-sacral
work along with an osteopathic dentist, says she feels such
a difference in the visceral organs (the connecting tissue
is getting softer and different).
very grateful that you were assertive with me because I
really walked in to get help with the bronchial condition,
which came about with my brothers death in San Diego
on Dec. 15. You were very intuitive and sensitive.
plan on continually taking the herbs, and also plan on a
visit to San Diego this year so we can have another consultation!
thanks for your help.
p.s. the car needs a new battery, too!!!
I first came in I was feeling very stressed and irritable
with an extremely short fuse. If someone, family, friend,
fellow-worker, crossed my path at the wrong time I would
absolutely blast them. They did best to avoid me when I
was in "one of those moods." Since I have been
on the herb treatment I have noticed a great change in my
attitude. I am much more pleasant to be around and things
going wrong at work (school bus driver) or at home just
dont get to me like they used to.
I ran out of the herbs and didnt get back over for
more (missed at least two weeks). I noticed, and so did
my husband, that I was slipping backward. Last night I blew
up at my young adult children in a way I hadnt done
in months. I immediately recognized the tired, worn-out,
over stressed me. This morning I even unplugged the phone
so I wouldnt have to talk to anyone and worried people
at work, except those that know what I have been doing.
difference from before and when I was feeling better is
like night and day, a good hapypy me and an unattractive,
you, Steve, you really have helped me to improve my life
and give me the "old me" back!
Herbs & More,
since I finished taking the herbs that Steve prescribed
for my condition of being "switched", I have noticed
a big difference at a deep emotional level. I feel that
I am now a lot more balanced both psychologically and emotionally.
Things that always drove me crazy I am now approaching with
have been doing a lot of spiritual work and I feel together
with the herbs. I am at a level where I am able to manifest
many things in my life.
Herbs & More,
August of 1993 I walked into "Herbs & More"
simply looking for some advise herbally for a long-standing
problem I have had with
constipation. Little did I
know that in that visit Steve would address a much larger
problem I had been dealing with. After doing a quick iridology
evaluation, Steve started asking me what else was up in
my life. He started asking me if I had been feeling depressed,
low energy, low immune system, low sexual drive, etc. He
was so "right-on" with everything. I nearly cried.
As a female in my mid 20s, I am constantly evaluating
my life. Am I doing the right thing, what will make my life
meaningful? I often fall victim to lifes crazy angst.
Steve suggested a dosage of herbs to help me combat what
he called "chronic fatigue." After six months
I sit here in the store asking for a new supply. I am feeling
amazingly better, much more capable of dealing with the
emotional stress life throws at me. As I told Steve today,
six months ago I was very bummed out. I didnt feel
close to the high energy, present, person I usually am.
Im not completely where I used to be (life has a way
of wearing you down), but Im feeling happy, much stonger,
and I believe in the power of herbs, relaxation, and yourself!
And, by the way, some vegetables have helped my constipation
