More Questions

Can any of your products be given to children?

Sincerely, Lynn

The active ingredient in My Stress (California poppy) is an excellent herb that can be used for hyperactivity and restless however; caution should be taken when giving California poppy to children since it can cause drowsiness. It’s always recommended to consult your health care practitioner before administering anything medicinal to children.

The other Intuition products (My Vitality and My Waistline) are not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Is California poppy extract used for pain and is it sold on Hemet, Indian wells, San Jacento , or Palm Springs, CA?

Sincerely, Terri

Hi Terri,

California Poppy can be taken to relieve pain and does carry the traditional claim of being used in herbal medicine as an analgesic.More specifically California Poppy can be used to help suppress muscle spasms at doses of 0.5 to 2mL up to three times a day (we currently have 2.5mL of California poppy per tube of Intuition My Stress).

Unfortunately we are not sold at any US retail location as of yet, however you can place an order online though our website.

I hope that helps!

Is it okay to take all 3 of the different tubes everyday. I would like to take 1 of each daily.

Sincerely, Arie, Westmount, QC

Hi Arie,

The 3 Intuition products (My Stress, My Vitality, and My Waistline) all have different medicinal ingredients therefore there’s no worry of compounding the effects of certain herbs. Also, at present there are no known herb/herb interactions that have been observed between those contained in the three products.

If you would like to take 1 of each throughout the day you could.

I would like to know which blends are suitable for pregnant women.

Sincerely, Elisa, Toronto

Hi Elisa,

Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend any of our products ( My Waistline, My Vitality and/or My Stress) to anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

A relatively small selection of herbs are considered safe for use during pregnancy, however there’s lots of great literature (The Natural Pregnancy Book Herbs, Nutrition, and Other Holistic Choices” Written by Aviva Jill Romm, M.D.) and resources online that list which herbs (including teas) can be taken. When in doubt I would suggest discussing them with your physician.

Can I drink Intuition if I am taking a prescription drug called Cymbalta?

Sincerely, Barbara, Newmarket, Ont.

Hi Barbara,

If you are taking Cymbalta I would not recommend taking My Waistline because the primary ingredient, St John’s wort, could adversely interact with this drug.

I would always suggest discussing with your doctor and/or pharmacist before taking any herbal product alongside prescribed medications.

I was wondering does My Waist Line help to detoxify the liver? I was reading that its often hard to loose weight if your liver isn't functioning properly and have been reading on if you detoxify your liver it helps promote weight loss! So does My Waist Line also help detoxify the liver?

Barb, USA

Hi Barb,

My Waistline contains many bitter herbs including dandelion root and hawthorn that are used to cleanse and detoxify the liver.

I had read that some of these products do contain a laxative? If i start using My Waistline can I still be using it with psyllium husk? I have been using psyllium husk for constipation and its been working great and don't want to give it up while using my waisteline!

Thanks. Natalie, Canada

Hi Natalie,

My Waistline does contain cascara bark– a non habit forming laxative.

At 40 mg per tube, the laxative activity of cascara is low compared to Psyllium so you could continue using both.

I was given a sample of the stress drink... I am pregnant and gave it to my boyfriend to drink and he loved it. We didn't realize it was a women’s drink, do you make a product for men?

Sincerely, Bev, Kamloops, British Columbia

Hi Bev,

Our products aren’t gender specific therefore your boyfriend could take My Stress , or any of our Intuition products, as needed; as a pick me up, relaxer or weight management aid.

I just purchased My Waistline and I would like to know how long after taking this product can I notice weight loss.

Sincerely, Lisa, Mississauga, Ont.

Hi Lisa,

As with most herbal supplements, results may vary per person. My Waistline is a product that should be used to supplement your current regime therefore mindful eating habits and exercise are encouraged.

Many of the medicinal ingredients in My Waistline take time to build up in the body before you will notice an effect; which could vary from a few days to a few weeks.

I just purchased My waistline, how long can I take this product for ? I would like to continue with the product after I lose some weight. Is that OK?

Thanks Paula, Mississauga Ont

Hi Paula,

My Waistline contains a slew of herbs that not only act to promote a healthy weight, but also support the function of key organs (such as the liver and kidneys) that are responsible for detoxing the body.

Therefore once your ideal weight is achieved, My Waistline would still be a great maintenance product to use. As with any herbs though, issues associated with excessive and long term use should be discussed with your doctor.

How long can I safely take my vitality that increases energy?

Lori

Hi Lori,

My Vitality contains Korean and Siberian ginseng, both great adaptogenic herbs that help normalize the body’s ability to deal with stressors such as anxiety and or fatigue. Therefore use caution when taking for longer than 3 months without a 2-3-week break.

I have a tyroid problem and taking synthroid Medication. Can I use this product?

Vivian

Hi Vivian,

Our product “My Waistline” contains Bladderwrack; a sea algae which is also a source of iodine. Bladderwrack has been shown to increase thyroid-stimulating hormones at dosages of up to 300-600mg. My Waistline contains only 79mg of Bladderwrack per serving; however exercise caution when taking medications for the thyroid such as synthroid.

Thanks, Tiffany

Is it okay to take the My Aphrodiasia for Her along with melatonin?

Trish

Hi Trish,

There have been no known interactions between Melatonin and Damiana (the medicinal ingredient in Aphrodisiaca for Her). Regarding the potential side effects of taking Damiana, you should consult your doctor if you show signs of low blood sugar since Damiana may affect blood sugar levels in those with a predisposed condition such as diabetes.

I hope that helps,
Tiffany

Is there a time limit for taking My Stress? Is it safe to take every day for an extended period of time provided the daily dose is not exceeded?

Sabina

Hi Sabina,

Studies have shown that California poppy (the main ingredient in My Stress) appears to be safe for most people when taken regularly for three months or less. It is recommended to consult a health care practitioner if your symptoms (such as sleeplessness or anxiety)  persist continuously for more than 3 weeks.

I hope that helps,
Tiffany

Which one of your products would be good for me to use with my diet for weight loss, I need to lose 50 to 60 lbs. Would My Waistline and My Vitality be a good combination. Thank you!

Connie

Hi Connie,

Both products would be a great supplement to add to your diet to promote weight loss. My Waistline has many great detoxifying herbs, such as Dandelion root and Parsley, which help manage the appetite, while My Vitality helps to balance energy levels which are a contributing factor to weight gain.

I hope that helps!
