Bob. It wasn't that we saw a post suggesting herbal remedies that bothered us. Well, let me speak for myself here. I, for one, go to herbals long before I go to synthesized meds for everything. As a matter of fact, I go for the tea I've posted about before I go for Imitrex and while I'm going for the O2. So, that was all said because you shouldn't think that she's being knocked for suggesting a "crazy" method. I've used what she suggested and it has not helped me. I've also talked to some that have gotten some relief from those very items. So, it's up in the air, in my mind, whether there is some value in them.
OK. Where the problem lies is that she very much seems like a saleswoman who is here to exploit us. I may be wrong. I thought the same of Jamy when she first wrote to us and I still have lingering guilt for accusing her of the same. Nonetheless, this woman has replied (I think that the count was )5x all saying the same thing: I'm Chinese (so I must have the real thing). Some companies don't give you the purity that you may need (implying, but never saying, that her goods are pure. Say it if it's true. If it isn't true, that's a very good way advertisers make us read something like that in an ad without being taken up on fraud charges). Email me for samples (and probably a hard sales pitch to boot). The words in all of her posts hardly change. The order she puts the points of her posts in never change. And while those last 2 points may seem minor points, as one who has done a lot of sales, that's half the key to the subliminals. The words you choose and the order of the points you use -- no poem intended. I do deeply apologize to her if I'm wrong. If she is sincere, I hope that she continues to post. And that, I underline, IS sincere.
