My Review of Cellfood Supplements
I started taking cellfood in August 2011. I had been struggling with alopecia universalis and found out about cellfood when I went to the Vitamin Shoppe. I suspected that my alopecia was due to some underlying condition such as candida. I had already done the McCombs candida cleanse with marginal results. It seemed to improve my overall wellbeing and my fingernails, but I didn't get much hair regrowth. I did the Blessed Herbs cleanse and felt better, but it was still a long cleanse and I felt like I should have had a greater improvement in my health. The thing that got me excited about trying cellfood was that it claimed to improve my oxygen level. That was supposed to get rid of the candida.
I initially noticed a surge of energy. I slept more deeply and required a little less sleep. (I was pretty diligent about getting eight hours, but now felt fine with seven or seven and a half.) Some people take cellfood for the energy, but I was more interested in getting my hair back. It has been three weeks and I am starting to feel a little extra soft fuzz on my head. That is wonderful. I am not sure if the growth will continue or fall out yet. I will continue taking the cellfood for at least three months. (That is how long I read it takes to eradicate candida with cellfood.)
Why Take Cellfood?
Many people will take a multivitamin, but do not take essential minerals. What they don't realize is that with modern farming technology, our foods are mineral and nutrient deficient. Cellfood has the trace minerals that are bodies are lacking. When you don't have the essential minerals, all the multivitamins in the world are not going to improve your health. You need minerals and vitamins.
So, the founders described it as splitting water technology. I'm not entirely convinced that is what is going on. I just know that I have more energy than before and I'm starting to feel some hairs on my head. That is huge for me. I really want to get back into optimal health and for that reason, I'm pretty much willing to try products. I'm open minded enough to realize that sometimes we don't know how things work, we just know that they work. Hey, that is what my neurologist told me about lamictal, a drug that prevents seizures. Even doctors don't know it all!
So here is one theory about how cellfood works. It splits up the molecular bond making it easier to assimilate the minerals into your body.
So, I checked out what other people were saying on Amazon for this one. I like that the positive reviews outweigh the negative ones by about five to one.
When I saw Alex's comments, I just had to put in my two cents! I have been struggling with candida for over a year and a half--it has been driving me crazy. I have spent no less than $500 to $700 on various cures including that Three-Lac guy who just won't leave you alone. I have done cleanses, tried holistic remedies, yogurt, probiotics, creams, the ever-present Monistat, even a mid-eastern honey that contains some types of natural antibiotics. I tried the diet for a while and was told that this is the only way to get rid of it! WRONG!! I have spent the past 18 months going from one treatment to another, including organic vinegar. Then one day I just stopped everything just to see if it would help. It did subside a bit for a few days, then it was back.
I talked to a woman in Whole Foods about a week and a half ago. Her face lit up and she said "Come with me!!!!" She has been a health practitioner for over 20 years. She introduced me to Cellfood and said that 100% of the people she had worked who tried it for candida were successful. I was still skeptical. Well, I have been using it for only a week and a half--in 90 degree heat no less, and this is the first time I have been symptom free in a year and a half. I know it is still early, but the principles of this product--oxygen to your cells--makes all the sense in the world because candida cannot survive in oxygen.
The lady at Whole Foods said you have to keep it up for about 3 months to get rid of all the candida. Plus I have more energy to boot.
THANK YOU CINDY!!
This stuff is great. First of all my skin looks better and I feel better. I wake up more alert. I have crohns disease, using cellfood I have less problems. My son 2 at the time, I used this right out of the bottle on his warts. Let me just say it looked like he had another toe on his big toe. I let it go WAY to long. I read somewhere that I should put this straight on the warts so I did. Remember it was HUGE. After a few weeks of using this everyday and scratching at the warts it died and fell off. I was excited. I told my son we were washing it. He never thought twice. The Doc. wanted me to put acid on it. I don't think so. Not on my baby.
So I'm a big advocate of this stuff. I've been using Cellfood for about a year. Still love it.
Give it a chance. You might thank yourself later.
are an easy addition to ones diet. They don't taste bad. It tastes like a little citrus in your water. Also, it is easy to do. Three glasses a day! One ounce should last you about one month according to the saleswoman at Vitamin Shoppe. I am still on my first bottle and I have been taking them for about three weeks! Cellfood drops
They also have a line of skin care products.
From what I understand, our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves when they have the right tools. Cellfood is essential in providing the right tools. Because you are not trying to treat a certain condition or manipulate your body into suppressing its own inflammation, cellfood will help with a variety of conditions from weight loss to skin care and even cancer.
I did read that a few people used it to treat burns. I was really skeptical of this, but the other day I was making organic hashbrowns and touched my cast iron skillet. Immediately I plunged it under cold water. Then I remembered reading about cellfood and I grabbed it since it was in the corner cabinet next to the sink. It stung for a few seconds, but in an hour, I couldn't even tell that I had burned myself. The next day, the skin had a changed texture, but it was no longer pink. It seemed as if it healed faster because of the cellfood.
I wanted to include my favorite cellfood reviews or at least the ones that I found helpful. I don't actually think cellfood will help everyone, but I think there are people who cellfood will benefit.
More reviews from Amazon:
I had been trying to lose weight for some months. The problem was I would start to get tired and weak. This scared me due to some health problems from the past which I did not want coming back. After reading all the reviews here, I thought maybe Cellfood would help me to feel okay while dieting. It worked! Through very healthy eating, drinking lots of water and exercising I have lots 3 or more pounds a week. :-)
A natural food nut weighs in:
I have been a natural food and nutrition 'nut' for years, and have specifically been a proponent of using food NOT supplements to optimize health. I remember seeing Cell Food decades ago and dismissing it as a ridiculously priced attempt at 'snowing' the public. Recently, a friend suggested I try it. At first I wasn't even going to bother, but then thought why not get some evidence to support my skepticism... To my surprise, I felt some benefits on the first day. A youthful 47yo mom with a toddler, I am keenly aware of my physical and mental energy levels. Within a few minutes, I felt a clarity both physically and mentally. That night, I slept exceptionally deeply, even with each time I had to return to sleep after getting woken, which generally loses me a good, few hours. After a few days of taking Cell Food, the sleep benefits continued without fail and my digestion began improving. I have now been taking it for a few weeks. After experimenting with the timing of taking it and with some dietary factors, it is clear that for me, the consumption of sugar, yeast/leavening, and presumably alcohol (the third candida culprit which I never consume) specifically counter the effects of Cell Food, requiring a much higher intake level in order to experience results. Please note that this is relevant for any and all forms of sugar, including the natural sugar in fruit, grams of sugar as indicated on the nutrition panel in most packaged foods, etc.
My next test is seeing what impact, if any, Cell Food has on my menstrual cramps. I will update this review when I find out.
A few weeks later... the dosage of ibuprofen required to get rid of cramps was reduced. Went from the usual 2-3 doses of 600mg each, to 1 dose of 200mg and one dose of 400mg. The other benefits have continued, with sugar intake seeming to interfere somewhat with those benefits... Cell Food helps my body crave healthful foods which, in turn, reinforces all the positive results, including significantly increased stamina and muscular strength.
I really haven't noticed any side effects from my own personal experience taking cellfood. There was one person on Amazon whose review claimed that it made her moody and she stopped taking it. Everyone will have a different experience because we are all unique. Our environments and diets are different and will factor into whether or not the product will work for you.
You may experience detoxification side effects initially. They usually last only a few days. It is generally your body getting rid of the built up toxins in your body. For some people this will feel like a slight cold and other people may experience a rash. I usually experience a mild rash around my eyes when detoxing. It is usually gone within three days.
October 5,2011 Update
I have been taking cellfood daily for almost two months. I still don't have my hair back. I do have some clear eyelashes coming in. That is encouraging. However, I really want my hair back. I am giving cellfood another month before I determine that it doesn't really work for alopecia universalis. I do know that it takes a long time to grow hair in general, but especially when trying to correct an underlying autoimmune disease.
