Created by Nature, Perfected by Science: Natural Miracles Review

So here's the deal. I am allergic to everything. No joke. Everything. And much of that everything is food related.

My sort of allergies is not the immediate allergic response of rashes or anaphylaxis {though that does happen, & it is very scary & sucks}.  What happens, in a nustshell, is that my body refuses to absorb minerals & nutrients from food-- it sort of says "oh gosh, we are allergic to that-- move it through fast."  Which means I can suffer from malnutrition while eating a healthy balanced diet.  Weird, no?

And I won't know about it until I am sick.

To give an example-- I started feeling overly fatigued last summer & went to the doctor.  Turned out I had a massive ferritin iron deficiency.  I had to have iron transfusions, which I did once before my body decided it was allergic to the transfusion and I went into anaphylactic shock.  Which, as always, was very scary and sucked.  It was made worse because the only thing the staff at the blood center had on hand for allergic reactions was a type of steroid that I am also allergic to.  Not good.

But I digress.

So now I have to take prescribed iron pills everyday along with all the other vitamins and minerals I have to take in order to assure I don't get malnourished.

My allergist advised that the only way I could be sure I wouldn't have allergic reactions to food was to stick to a diet of chicken {cooked with salt & pepper and naught else} and white rice.  To which I said no.

Thus we try to eat organic everything-- avoiding the chemicals I am also allergic to that are used in pesticides & feeds that are sometimes used in non organic foods.  Which gives me at least one less thing to be allergic to.  If you follow my logic.  I also avoid gluten, because of a wheat allergy, and try to vary my diet in order to avoid a potential build up of toxins in my system.

I also avoid taking pharmaceuticals whenever possible and stick to herbal remedies which I am mostly not allergic to...sigh.

All of this is a round about way of getting to my review of Natural Miracles products.











When I was contacted and offered a free sample of Natural Miracles Inflamagic in exchange for an honest review, I figured it was right up my alley.  They even through in Remeeda and samples of their other products as well.  Good people.

For those unfamiliar with herbal remedies in pill form, it isn't a matter of popping a few when you get a joint ache like you would with Advil or Tylenol.  You take them every day, and they build up in your system to prevent inflammation.  Since some people experience nausea if they do not have food when taking an herbal pills like Inflamagic, Natural Miracles designed Remeeda, which can be taken on an empty stomach.  See what I mean when I say they are good people?

Natural Miracles goes the extra mile across the board.  They use essential oils, as opposed to crushed dried herbs-- a far more efficient delivery system.  They are easier to digest, of course, but they are also better in their bioavailability, potency and concentration.  In other words, you are actually getting the herbal benefits you paid for, which can't be said for the dried & crushed variety. 

I've been taking the pills for a few weeks now, and I highly recommend.  But you don't have to take my word for it.  Here are some testimonials, and here are links to clinical studies, so you can check it out for yourself.

As for me, I will definitely be buying more when I run out.  They are available at two of our local health food shops {they have a handy dandy store locator map on the site} so it will be no problem to pick some up.  If you live in an area where they are not sold locally, you can always pick some up online-- they are available at every big name vitamin retailer on the interwebs!
