After years of our 9-year-old son struggling with extreme Restless Leg Syndrome and taking medications with awful side effects, he is now completely off those drugs thanks to Kannaway CBD oil! He sleeps well every night . Very thankful for Dr. Sandra!
I suffer from chronic pain due to arthritis and degenerative disk disease. I have tried everything imaginable over the years, including several doctors and OTC medicines. Sleep did not come easy. I was waking every two to three hours, unable to go back to sleep. I was so tired all the time. Dr. Sandra suggested that she test me and was able to determine what my body was needing. She then preceded to put me on a regiment that included Premium Hemp Oil. Within a week, I went from two to three hours of sleep a night to seven to eight hours…..I was amazed!
I am now sleeping a full eight hours, my energy level has increased and my pain level is significantly reduced.
Thank you Dr. Sandra McIlvain
I am writing to offer a testimonial and review on my experience with Sweet’s Syrup. I had struggled with a 10-month “tickle” cough from bronchitis last fall; a cough that stumped my family doctor, my gastroenterologist, who tested for GERD, and finally an ENT specialist. None of them had answers. I was visiting my dear friend and Naturopath Doctor, Dr Sandra McIlvain, who related her experience of the same symptoms and recommended I try elderberry syrup. After my first night’s dose, I did not cough for the first time in 10 months!!! This was a major achievement and delighted me!!
I now recommend this amazing product to my friends, as it is safe, natural and incredibly effective. Using local honey made such sense when tackling allergies and sensitivities.
Important to note, it is not only for acute situations, but also a proactive tool for the upcoming cold and flu season.
Several weeks ago, I began limping, as putting weight on my right leg was causing pain in my calf. Being athletic all my life, and having been injured, I am acutely aware of the body and typically am able to determine the cause. Unable to do so, I had an MRI done which showed a separation in the muscle about three inches long with what looked like fluid within. I was told it was unidentifiable. I mentioned it to Dr. Sandra. She recommended the Far Infrared Sauna for three days, twenty minutes at a time.
The muscle showed significant improvement after the first session and is now completely well.
