But that doesn't say if it's homemade or if they are reselling brand name products. I would encourage you to stick to high quality brand names - at least for the first part of your treatments. Otherwise you won't know if the herbs don't work for you, or if you just aren't getting what you paid for.
Well I just found this owner through eBay but he also helped me by telling me if I purchased through Etsy it would cost me less do to bypassing all the eBay fees etc. Now unlike the rude NON help I got from Sage Herbs (more on than in a minute), he went above & beyond in asking me a bit about
what my story was in case I should possibly choose a different herb from either himself OR someone else. He explained in part:
"I had a
Doc friend here in Virginia until my wife came down with Lyme +cos. Now
his son has had a round with tick bites...Maybe he will wake up now and
quit being an ass. I say if you do not know something....learn about
I spent a couple hours to explain all of my "story" and here was his reply after I explained I just purchased 5 pounds of assorted Herb powders from 1st Chinese Herbs direct (instead of through Amazon to also save quite a LOT of money):
Here are my feelings on these herbals. Powdered herbs are used and it is
acceptable. In my experience herbal extracts with alcohol base are usually a great deal more potent as many of the constituents in herbs are alkaloids that can not be extracted in water or in the body.
I use Sida Acuta (the best of the Sidas) in my extracts. I import it myself from Africa from an herbal pharm company that has a laboratory and I deal directly with the owner who is a PhD in Natural Science and has other various degrees. The man is truly inspiring. Sida and Cryptolepis both contain good amounts of Cryptolene which is very effective on lyme and others.

So I got my Sida Acuta in 4 days, free shipping and of course will be awhile before I see if any results IF any results? Is he good? Are his products any good? Don't know but he spent a LOT of time TRING to help me and asked for nothing. Was kind, responded to all my emails politely and immediately unlike Sage who NEVER did until I did 4 emails in a single day through ever avenue available when ignored....ironically I got an email from Valerie there just last night all warm & fuzzy answering my now 2 week old question a bit late since I have now placed a $500.00 order elsewhere. I also VERY politely informed her that I was grateful to FINALLY getting a straight answer but due to her outright RUDE emails to me, I had moved on. In this economy I think even anyone with brain fog would stop supporting any business who is insulting after you just spent over $300.00 in less than 2 weeks! But I was polight, kind & considerate when explaining further that when I then had done an internet search on Sage Herbs discovered all sorts of 1 star reviews from a LOT of others who were treated far worse than myself and many who had driven to their store and treated horribly. Anyway,I do not want to bash them since I really liked their superfast shipping (albeit expensive), and I loved their selection. I wish things had turned out better. Will I use them again? Maybe but unlikely.
OK, now to end my comments about
this shop on Etsy, his name is Terry Chalfant. I don't KNOW how good or bad his product is but may order a few more items today. He has a sale on for 3 4 ounce bottles of your choice for $99.00 and free shipping/NO tax. A BIG deal here in California where tax is king! I don't know how any of us know anything about
ANY of these herbs. Unless we send the herbs to a private lab for testing, how do we know about
ANYONE? Millions of dollars could be made fairly quickly I suspect? I am desperate,so I can become gullable as well. I guess I will end with this snippet from his Etsy website which gives about
all I know about
this business, this person. Use him or not, up to you? I may try 3 more bottles but justlikeyou, I have NO idea what to think to be honest? I only know is has treated ME,nicer than most anyone and taken more time than any doctorhas with me, that's for SURE. Hereis from his Etsy pages:
