Testimonials

After getting to the point in my life where I needed to make a change to help improve my overall health I made the decision to try the Standard Process 21 day cleanse. My goal was to jump start my overall health and start making healthier decisions, but I was amazed to lose 22 lbs during the 21 days! The Standard Process cleanse included everything I needed, and there was even an app I downloaded to help me follow along during the 21 days. As happy as I was to see the weight come off I was even more amazed at how great I started to feel. I’ve dealt with sinus issues for years and tried many over the counter and prescription medicines to help deal with the pain, pressure, and headaches from it. I’m happy to say that I haven’t had to take anything since starting and then completing the cleanse. I have more energy and my mind feels so much clearer. I would highly recommend the Standard Process cleanse to anyone wanting to change the way they feel and start living a healthy lifestyle!

I feel like my best self after starting CBD. No dread, less anxiety, more energy and internal peace. I take a full a full dropper twice a day and noticed the difference after 5 days! Its natural qualities give me peace of mind that I’m solving these issues without medications. Highly recommend!
— Happy Customer
I used the All Good on my horses eyes as the over the counter fly spray hurts their eyes. I rubbed a small amount of all natural and organic All Good Goop around their eyes and it keeps the flies away from their eyes!
— Happy Customer
Bobbi recommened CBD Daily for my knees. I was a bit hesitant. I have tried every cream, oil, spray for joint pain. The doctor told me 1 knee is bone on bone. I tried CBD Daily almost a year ago. Amazing results! I used 2x a day for a few weeks. After years of pain in my knee, the pain is gone. Now I use CBD Daily as needed when my knee begins to act up. Amazing product!

I used to suffer from Diverticulitus and ever since I started taking a daily probiotic I have seen a drastic change in my colon health in the last 4 years. You can balance your colon health optimally by rotating brands monthly, by changing brands you are getting different beneficial strains. It has been a life saver for me, I haven’t had a colonoscopy for 10 years! I recommend the Orthomolecular brand and the Garden of Life Dr. Formulated probiotics.

I was taking 3 Advil a day for joint pain. I was worried about what it was doing to my stomach. I have been taking Curamed for general inflammation. With the colder weather my joints were in more pain so I started taking Curamin and it has worked better than the Advil!
— Janet Marcotte
Sinatrol was recommended when I came in with severe post nasal drip and congestion. I took 3/day as recommended and it worked great-cleared me up and now I am just taking 1/day to maintain. Great product!
— Freddy
I highly recommend the 21day cleanse! I had tried numerous diets to loose those stubborn 15 lbs.! I admit the first couple day’s were hard! I was craving sugar which was my enemy! By about day 3-4 I no longer craved sugar! Starting the morning off with the shakes really gave me energy and we’re very filling so I didn’t feel hungry. After exercising I would snack on some vegies that I grilled the night before followed by another shake at lunch. I never felt hungry! I was so happy with the results! My hot flashes that plagued my body had disappeared! The pounds just melted off. I have since continued with the shakes every morning. I highly recommend the 21 day cleanse! Thank you Bobbi for your encouragement and support! It really works people!

I completed the 21 day cleanse and felt wonderful! Wanting to lose a few pounds and hoping to improve my overall health, I’m happy to report that both were accomplished. For the past several years I have had numerous heart palpitations throughout the day. During the cleanse I eventually realized that I hadn’t had any! Oh, joy! The dedication to the cleanse paid off substantially.

The supplement Acid Ease worked better for acid reflux than any other medications that were prescribed for my husband. He has no more (heartburn) problems!
— Iris
My friend started taking Stops Leg Cramps 3 days ago (from The Natural Alternative) and hasn’t had a leg cramp since! She had been taking medication for cramping as it interfered with her sleep every night, and since she started Stops Leg Cramps no more cramps! I came in to get some for my husband.

I lost a total of 15 lbs on the 21 Day Purification Program! I felt great! I was sleeping better, absolutely no digestive problems. I have already asked several friends to try the program and they are seeing results as well. You are able to eat real food, fruit and vegetables from the beginning, and by the 8th day I was able to add healthy protein (protein shakes add clean protein to your daily diet as well). I can’t say enough about how easy and productive this program is. I feel great!

After the New Year I was feeling fatigued, sluggish, and low energy. I was having sugar cravings and suffering from skin hives. So when Natural Alternative sent out an email about a Cleanse, I thought, I have to find out more about this. I attended the information meeting and the program sounded like it was just what I needed. Also, losing weight would be a bonus. I started the cleanse in March. It seemed easy for me. I was NOT hungry, my energy returned, and my hives cleared up in about a week! I followed the program closely and started losing weight right away. I have lost a total of 27 lbs. Also, the cleanse helped me change my eating habits: no more sugar, carbs, or gluten. I focus on fresh vegetables, fruits, and protein. Salad is my new best friend. I plan on doing the cleanse yearly!

I have encouraged many friends and family members to use Bonita for their hair issues. With that being said, my daughter and a few of my girlfriends are now taking it with great results! It’s a great product. Also, I have shared my results taking chaste berry and how it’s pretty much relieved my hot flashes completely. I take it religiously in the morning with my Bonita.

After taking o.t.c. and prescription medications for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for several years, I found they were no longer effective. I didn’t realize the medications were making the situation worse. Acid reflux was escalating and I was miserable. Bobbi at The Natural Alternative suggested I try pearls and Acid-Ease. In just a few weeks, I had no more acid reflux. Finally, relief! I haven’t felt this good in several years. Thank you, Bobbi.
