Less Pain is Always Better!
PostedJune 24, 2012
I have had arthritis since I was 7 yrs old. I was hit by a car several yrs ago rupturing 4 lower back discs. This machine is well made & easy to use. It will not perform miracles eliminating all pain sources, especially in a patient like me with so many serious problems. However, it will help reduce pain if used twice daily for 14 minute sessions. Depending on size of area treated & severity of pain, it will take effect quicker for some things & longer for others. If you are taking pills & would like to take less, this is worth a shot. For me any reduction in pain at this point is welcome from my broken back to arthroscopically repaired knees to carpal tunnel bilateral surgeries, etc...! You have nothing to loose as Gaiam unconditionally guarantees satisfaction & makes returns hassle-free. Good health!

Exactly What the M.D. Ordered!
PostedApril 24, 2012
I ordered this soap for the 1st time & am very happy with it. The smell is a delightful almond scent, not overpowering, it is gentle yet effective & rinses clean. I have many allergies & extremely dry skin with eczema & am always looking for new natural products to try. I am very pleased so far as it has helped to soothe inflamed patches & I am even using on my 7 mos old infant (who also has allergies). My husband complimenting me so much for "smelling so good" is now using it himself, so I can return the compliment! This can be used on the face as well. I would recommend to all skin types but especially dry skin.

A Breath of Fresh Air!
PostedMay 27, 2011
Have had asthma for yrs that kicks up especially in the warm/hot, humid months. I bought this to use at the beginning of symptoms to try to avoid using so much medication (with my m.d.'s approval). When wheezing starts, I'll use in a.m. & p.m., 10 minutes thru mouth, 10 minutes thru nose (as recommended). Sometimes I still have to progress to inhalers & pills, however, using this for the past yr I have had less attacks for a long time! I have used so much less conventional medicines using the salt inhaler & it is safe for children as well as adults. It helps most when started at onset of symptoms. I suggest it to anyone (under an m.d.'s supervision) who is trying to reduce frequency of attacks, severity of symptoms and taking too many meds. Worth every penny!

Help for Muscle Spasms
PostedApril 16, 2010
This massager is a definite help for people with muscle spasms/general aches & pains. Cannot use on the back lying down (can be painful) however, used in a sitting position with/without heat does relax pain. I have herniated discs in the lower lumbar spine & always use with the heat. It is a bit heavy/clumsy to get in position in the back w/o help, but once in the right place, perhaps with a pillow to prop up for middle/upper back, it can do wonders. I have also used on my lower neck/shoulder area & on a family member's calf muscle when she was experiencing spasms due to cholesterol medications. It stopped the extremely painful contractions she was experiencing. She also preferred the heat. The heat builds up slowly; would like it to be a little more intense, but it does make a difference especially if used several times as a therapeutic treatment. Safe for diabetic patients or those with neuropathies (numbness to one degree or another). Jade is purported to have ancient healing properties (who knew?-obviously the Chinese centuries ago) & when ur in pain, every little bit helps! Definitely worth the money.

Best Back Scrubber!
PostedMarch 11, 2010
I have sensitive skin but I need exfoliation. I am tired of English complexion clothes that wear out; moldy yucky loofahs that are hard to handle; and brushes that are either too soft or become too soft with use. This back scrubber has a softer and firmer side, is just the right size, is light and durable. It cleans with a rinse & a shake. I highly recommend it!

Neck Pain-TRY THIS!
PostedNovember 13, 2009
I have bulging discs in my neck from a car accident several years ago which leave me waking with headaches nearly every morning and daily stiffness & pain when turning my head throughout the day. I have tried everything to ease it (including prescription medications). This device I have been using twice a day for twenty minutes a day & it helps tremendously. If you suffer from neck pain, you must give this a try!

 Personal Toothbrush Sanitizer
Personal Toothbrush Sanitizer
When you pack a wet toothbrush inside a humid travel case, it becomes a host for all kinds of unhygienic bacterial growth. Our sanitizer kills germs and bacteria quickly and effectively using UV radiation and ozone. Sanitizing 1 toothbrush takes between 3-4 minutes and kills 99% of germs, bacteria and micro-organisms by dosing with UV light. Uses 2 AA batteries (not included). Toothbrush not included. China.
 

Can the UV toothbrush sanitizer be used on an electric toothbrush?

Could this be use to help with Fibromyalgia pain?

Top 25 Contributor
Top 25 Contributor
Yes, that is one of the causes listed in the papers that come with product. I would think especially since Fibromyalgia is usually deep muscle related. You may wish to consider investing in the larger size as this covers larger areas per treatment & can conviniently be strapped in place. Remember Gaiam unconditionally guarantees satisfaction & I can vouch for their wonderful hassle-free staff! Feel better.

Can I use for my daughter's backpain (7 years old). If I would like to use it on my face, do I need to wear glasses to protect my eyes? Thank you!

Top 25 Contributor

Since there have been no side effects reported & this is not an invasive treatment , I would feel safe using on my 7 yr old. This is FDA approved. It can be used on the face (how to is in the instruction booklet included with product). No glasses are needed, however, it is recommended to keep eyes closed.
