I am a healthy woman who's a
vegetarian. I don't eat anything that once had a face! :-) My $39.95
starter kit #1118 just arrived, and I couldn't be more pleased with the
quality of your whole flaxseed. What a difference eating freshly ground
flaxseed versus the packaged I previously bought at a local health food
store. I am a lifelong customer! You can count on it! Absolutely
delicious on my steel cut oatmeal and my spinach salad. I couldn't be
happier I found you.
just wanted you to know I received my order today and I want to
complement you on your fast delivery. I also want to let you know that
the handwritten "thank you" on the invoice is appreciated. I use the
internet often for ordering items I want and it is always nice to have
vendors say thanks for my business. You can be assured I will order
from you again.
I was recently given some of your flax seed by a well meaning friend
because I am diabetic and have been fighting with my mouth and high
blood sugars. Yes, I love to eat. After looking at the flax seed for
several days, decided to grind it and begin using. I am taking 3
tablespoons a day and my blood sugars have been lower than they ever
were. It can only be attributed to the flax seed because I have not
made a change in my med routine. I mix it with my Crystal Light fake
orange juice in the morning and at the end of the day, sprinkle a
teaspoon over my dinner. My blood sugar readings are nothing short of
amazing. I am so grateful to my friend for giving me 12 pounds of Flax
Seed. Have been printing and using some wonderful recipes. Thank you,
thank you, thank you for saving my life.
I'm leaving the end of the month for about 7 weeks. I'll be needing
some more flax seed. I'm taking 3/4 cup in the morning every day. I
feel good with my blood pressure, when I had it checked a couple days
ago, at 124/74. I turned 64 yesterday.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your product. My doctor
advised me to take flaxseed oil a couple of years ago, at the same time
that she put me on Lipitor to lower my cholesterol. Over time, I
learned that flaxseed was actually better healthwise than the oil, and
started adding it to my cereal every morning. The price was
discouraging, so I hopped online to see if I could find something
better than my local healthstores had to offer. I was successful in my
search, and began to order cold milled flaxseed in vacuum packed bags.
After over a year of that, I began to wonder why I couldn't just find
somewhere to buy whole flaxseed and do the grinding myself. It seemed
to be a better idea as far as nutrition was concerned. This is where I
began some serious study, and the end of my long story found me
settling on your company as looking like the best the web had to offer.
I received my first shipment yesterday...along with the beautiful
little grinder (and the surprise addition of a quarter-cup measure,
which I didn't have and is exactly the right size). I'm frankly
flabbergasted. Whir, whir for 5 or 6 seconds and I had a flour-like
texture that stirred beautifully into my oatmeal and tasted delicious.
Visually much more appetizing than anything I've used before, and
there's really no comparison as to taste.
I am absolutely sold, and will continue to order my flaxseed from you.
I appreciate the tips you included (like turning the grinder over with
the blades still rotating so the flaxseed would fall into the top), as
well as the recipes and the friendly note from Arlene.
Happy Solstice to you all!
started using flax meal several years ago. A friend of ours introduced
us to it by saying that it was so good for your general health. Much to
my amazement, after using flax meal for a short period of time I didn't
need ulcer medication any more. I had suffered with ulcers in the past,
and once they were cleared up with prescription drugs I still had to
use over the counter medications for my stomach. Since I have been
using flaxmeal on a daily basis I no longer have ulcer problems. In
fact I will not leave home without taking my grinder and flax along. It
has made such a difference in the way I feel. It also is an excellent
product for keeping your system regular. Constipation is also a thing
of the past. We grind our flax in the morning and mix it with orange
juice or just plain water and drink it down. For both my husband and
myself it has been a great benefit to our well being.
while ago I ordered from your company, then cancelled after I checked
out some of the other websites and found less expensive flaxseeds. But
someone at your company said that if I tried your product they knew I
would be more than pleased. He was right. I love your flaxseeds.
a little note. I cannot take hormone pills, patches, or creams. For the
last 3 years I've been taking flax meal (1 teaspoon twice a day). I
only have night sweats. I've only slept with a sheet, even in the
winter. When I hit Menopause, the hot flashes came all day long. Talked
with my doctor and she said to increase to 2 big tablespoons twice a
day. I mix it with nuts in the food processor and add to several foods.
(Yogurt, peanut butter on toast, cereal, etc.). Immediately the hot
flashes went away PLUS the night sweats!! It feels so good to be able
to have the comforter on again. Feel great.
started a regimen of 1/8 cup ground flaxseed twice daily on August 1,
2003. I just got my cholestrol results back today and it has dropped
from 267 to 235. I am so happy with the results, using your product. I
have also lost 11 lbs since Sept 9th, my weigh-in day at Curves. So
all in all your golden flaxseed has stood up to all your claims.
Thank you from a satisfied customer,
to my sister, V.J.Sweet, we received the first flax seed ever for us.
We were quite interested in what she said since there has been colon
cancer in our family. The doctor told my cousin that colon cancer is
from fesses staying and fermenting in the colon. Thanks to your flax
seed information - none of us have that family problem any more. I
called my relatives to give them the information but found that their
doctor had already told them and they too were on the program. We are
spreading the information at every chance. We love the taste and if by
chance we forget it one day, we fill we lost a treat in flavor.
Thanks Again & Again,
for all your help, I will pass everything on to my father an law, he
will be happy to hear all the little is doing. I must tell you that I
have known about this little seed for a long while. I have told John
about the seed several months ago and he and his wife has been putting
it in their oatmeal and other foods sense then. He is feeling so much
better that he is now off two of his meds. and is having a through
check up next week. I know it will be good news. We also have some
friends who moved up from Tenn. her family were sick to often so I told
them about flax, she started feeding the seed regularly to her family
in any thing she could get into. She was expecting her 4th child and to
my surprise her doctor said to start eating flax, she said "I have a
friend who has already told me about flax and we are using it." The
doctor said that her friend was a wise person. The results was, she had
her first baby naturally at home, without any problems at all and this
baby is the healthiest baby they have had by far. I don't know how
much is to the credit of the seed, being I am a pastor I give God all
the credit, but He did make the seed for us.
you. I have been amazed at the physical results of flaxseed. I ingest
it twice daily after grinding. I mix it with Yoplait Yogurt over fruit
consisting of bananas and strawberries. In the evening with yogurt
only. Excellent weight loss and a definite reduction in arthritic
to let you know that I have had high blood pressure for years, (I am
63) and this past winter, about 4 or 5 times a week, I started adding
ground flaxseed to my cereal - about 3 tbsp. My blood pressure has gone
down to normal levels and my doctor cut my medication back by half. He
will check it again next time I go, so possibly I may be able to get
off my medication entirely.
husband is a great believer in nutritional products and he is 70, and
doesn't take medication for anything and is extremely active and
you very much for your continued concern. I have started to take the
goldenflax and have noticed a marked improvement in my digestion. I
have also eliminated all gluten, but my guts are still raw, and I'm
noticing that the days that I take my flax I'm a much happier camper.
gastro approves of taking flax, but not as enthusiastically as I am
since he's not up with its great features. I am going to educate him
and direct him to your site.
Thank you once again,
#2: I gave my cousin some of the flax I'd ordered from you site a few
weeks ago and she is delighted. She was being told she'd have to
undergo a 2nd hemorrhoids operation and since the flax, she is a new
woman. We will be ordering in large bulks and spitting the order.
you for all your support through your emails. I think my story is
amazing (for me), and if you want to share my story, I'd prefer
In 1996 my peri-menopause symptoms began. I thought I was about to lose it.
My Dr. gave me some estrogen, bad news on the sex life. Went to a
OBGYN, started me back on birth control pills. Some improvement, but a
woman at the hospital I worked at had a pulmonary embolism from the leg
and nearly died. No more birth control pills. Several months went by
and I saw an add for a women's clinic for a Naturopath. I liked her and
she had an exciting array of herbal hormones, sleep aide, and also
milled Flax for my chronic constipation. (Tried many over the counter
meds). I hated the flax and stopped that. I kept taking the hormones,
and felt alittle better. Insomnia stilled prevailed. For a year this
continued, and I was working many OT hours, house remodel, lack of
sleep, etc. I had a Gran Mal seizure! My neurologist said that hormone
replacement may have been contributing to lowering my threshold to
fight off a seizure. I stopped everything. Just going with the flow,
and only taking a prescription sleep aid. After 3 weeks I thought I
needed to check into a Mental Hospital, seriously. I became paranoid,
crying all the time, very depressed and withdrawn. My doctor said that
sleep aids are very powerful, stop it immediately and try some Flax
Seed. "I tried the granules before, hated it." She said try the seeds
instead. Two days later I felt wonderful. I've been on the seeds now
for 6 months and haven't felt like this in 5 years. The most notable
feeling is my sense of well being, laugh alot again, and my energy
level has improved dramatically. Last year if I worked in the garden
for an hour, I had to take a nap. Now I'm out there for hours. My
contipation is gone also. I can't tell you how much I love Flax seed.
My mother and sister has also started and love it also.
just wanted to write quick and tell you my story (if you've got a
minute :) I'm a 22 year old, single mother who is self employeed, and
have been so blessed with the help and understanding of my family.
I was only 20 years old, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I at
the time had a 6 month old son (who's now 3). I opted out of
traditional 'chemical' medical treatments and started on some natural
supplements. As part of my regimine, I took Flax Seed Oil; one
tablespoon, twice a day, to try and straighten out my immune system, it
did wonders! I felt better, had more energy for my son, and gained
weight which was too my advantage actually (i'm 5'9" and 125 lbs). I do
real estate house appraisal which I enjoy very much, everything was
going so well. I felt great for months.
During a move, I just kind of got lazy I guess and stopped my regimine.
was about 6 months ago and my health has been slowly sliding down hill
a ever since. I always 'meant to start again' but felt fine and none of
my MS symptoms were bothering me, so I never did... that is until about
a week ago. I started to take the flax oil again (over cold veggies or
cottage cheese (adds another omega), b/c for the last 3 weeks I
suddenly came down with very very severe anxiey and panic attacks. I
was very open with my family and found out that over reaction to
adrenaline does run in my mothers side. This causes your heart and body
to over-respond and have a 'fight-or-flight' response in normal
situations. Many of my mothers family members take 'beta blockers',
etc. I also began to have severe gastro-esophageal reflux, which I was
treated for with medication. I was also treated for asthma.
really didn't want to take medication, but was almost at a loss as to
what to do. I saw a pshychotherapist and learned some relaxation and
self-hypnosis techniques, but was on the verge of trying to get on an
antidepressent/social anxiey drug. Thank goodness I didn't.
out of desperation started the flax oil again, not actually thinking
that it would help the anxiety, but maybe improve my health and help me
to calm down a little. I was told that perhaps I was 'worrying' about
my health on some level and that was the source of my problem. Now
after just a week taking the flax, I'm out and about again. I've quit
the GERD med and only use my asthma inhaler when I'm being 'athletic',
and the numbness in my hands and feet from the MS has practically
I've always been
very social and enjoyed being around other people, the social anxiety
was devestating. I hardly left the house for 3 weeks. I'm slowly but
surely getting better and I believe that the flax is too thank for it.
I'll never again go without it!
Thank you for your website and for the awareness that your giving to this
I want to apologize for not getting back to you sooner,
I really wanted to email you last Friday, but things always get busy
around here. I wanted to thank you deeply for the book, info sheets and
the flaxseed you sent me last week...I read the book in a few hours and
I couldn't wait to start using the flax that very morning! It tastes
great, and mixes very well with just about anything you can think of! I
mentioned to my rheumy dr. that I had started taking flax, and she was
optimistic about the benifits. It gives you a nice boost when you can't
get around to eating something every 3 hours, it helps tie you over for
awhile. So far, I feel pretty good, and I hope to increase the amount
this coming week from 2-1/2 tablespoons to 3-1/2. I'm sure there will
be no problems.
Once again, I want to say that it is hard to find someone
who believes so much in a great product like yours, so much that you go
out of your way to research and send that information along, when you
have so many other things to contend with, like running a successful
business, such as yours! I can see why it is so successful! Not only is
it a great product, but the warm, personal attention each and every
customer recieves, is exceptional!! My husband is a body builder, as
well as a martial artist, and he is now incorporating the flaxseed into
his daily shakes. I look forward to ordering a lot from you and your
terrific company, for a long time to come. Its the begining of a great
Cheryll Last and Family
I called you in September 2002, I had no idea what a change my health
and quality of life were about to take. I had read somewhere that
flaxseed helped with digestive problems. I am a 53 year old man in good
health. I have suffered from Crohn's disease, specifically ileitis, for
some 25 years. For all these years, I had rarely had a day where I felt
"normal." Each day, no matter how I watched my diet, I suffered from
gas, bloating, 3-4 bowel movements and a general feeling of nausea. If
you remember, I asked you if you thought adding your golden flax to my
diet might help. You were very encouraging and suggested I try the
product. I did and what a difference it has made. Little by little, I
have increased my consumption to a little more than 2 scoops per day.
It took a short period for my body to adjust to the additional fiber.
But now, Greg, I feel so much better. I would say that on 8 out of 10
days I actually feel GOOD. No more bloating, regular bowel movements
which are not spastic like they used to be and a general feeling of
being able to go somewhere and not worry about where the nearest
bathroom is. Your flax has also eliminated the diahrea.
addition, I'm getting valuable fiber which I couldn't tolerate
previously. I use the flax on my cereal in the morning and I have no
trouble placing some in a small glass of water and consuming it that
way. It is also good on a salad and in so many other dishes. I now have
my wife taking it along with my in laws. I heard a local nutritionist
on the radio the one day and she said that flax has elements in it
which make red blood cells "unstickable" thus lowering your heart
attack risk. Even my gastoenterologist to whom I showed a small
quantity of the flax on my last visit said that he is amazed at "How
doggone good you are doing."
I'm giving this testimonial to you as a gift to use on your website in
return for the "gift" you have given me: actually feeling good after so
many years of frustration. I hope others who read this will try the
product and stick with it awhile.........I'm sure it will help others
like it has helped me. Again Greg, thank you so much for your kind
advice and recommendation in Septmeber of 2002.
Very truly.........Gerald Dimitri
for answering my questions so promptly. I have gotten a great benefit
from taking flaxseed. My skin isn't as dry, I find I have more
resistance to colds & other people's germs (I work in an Emergency
I have used flax
seed oil, but I find I get more benefits from the milled flaxseed. I
stir it in different cereals - hot & cold - and they stay with me
longer. I will soon be ordering more flax seed."
cholesterol two months ago was 245, last Friday it was 139. Two months
ago I ordered your Golden flax seed and began a diet regimen
recommended by the American Heart Association and followed Dr. Andrew
Wield's recommendations in his book Natural Healing. The only oils I
took in were contained in flaxseed, benecol and in foods naturally. My
objective was to lower my calorie intake to bare minimums and keep my
fat grams between 25% and 30%. My build is slender and my weight has
remained stable. My diet is not restrictive, I use a microwave,
pressure cooker and grill as a primary means of cooking. Most of my
meals are prepared at home. In general my diet consist mostly of fish
high in omega three oils, vegetables, grains and fruit. Juicing is
something I am doing more and more of now. If I can do this anyone can."

you so very much for the Flax Seed. It has been a real blessing for me
to have discovered it's benefits toward my Diabetes, I use Amaryl, 1
MG-tab in the morning and 1-MG-tab at night. I was using a strict diet,
it worked quite well, however if I strayed from the diet my blood level
would rise and drop a lot. I found that when I began using the Flax
Seed that my blood level stayed at a more constant level, with a lot
less restricted diet, so I can enjoy food more. I have noticed some
other side benefits also. So thank you."
I like oatmeal, so every morning I cook the oatmeal somewhat soft,
after it is cooked I put in 3 heaping tablespoons of ground Flax Seed
and mix it in.
I have also put it in diet pop, that works quite well.
