Herbogen in Carpel Tunnel Syndrome: "I am a mechanical engineer. In 1981, I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. Consequently I was not able to do any thing with my right hand due to pain and increasing fibrosis. Doctor prescribed narcotics, but I was told that there was no drug by which fibrosis could be stopped. I went to physiotherapy and had injections in my hand, and also went to an orthopedic surgeon for consult. But all options for treatment stated that re-occurrence was still a problem. After going to a physiotherapist for six months without results I decided to go to another physiotherapist who included herbal oil massage in his treatment of CTS. My pain was relieved within three weeks and after eight weeks if regular applications of the oil (with local heat applied) I started to feel the release of stiffness in my hand. Within five months, my hand and arm was normal without any fibrosis and thickness. During my physiotherapy I did not take any kind of anti-inflammatory medicines. The herbal preparation, called "Herbogen", manufactured by Herbal Promise, LLC had been a treatment success. Thanks to Herbal Promise, LLC. I have returned to normal function without any local injections or orthopedic surgery." - S. Sen. Mechanical engineer, Kolkata, India
Neem O Derm for total skin care for Mole on the skin: "I am a72 year old working woman. I had a black - brown Mole on the left side of my back for long time. I went to a skin specialist to remove the mole, but no one could help me. When I came to know about the products of Herbal Promise for skin care, I started using Neem O Derm for total skin care regularly. I would cover the mole with a soaked band-aid for a few hours daily. After using Neem O Derm for about 8 months, the mole was completely gone. I recommend Neem O Derm for total skin care, for most every skin condition. With regular use, you will not be disappointed." - Mrs. Elizabeth Zuercher, Ohio.
Resurfacing of the skin by removing a growing mole with Neem O Derm for total skin care: "I had a growth for long time on the right side of my face adjacent to my right eye. The growth was slowly getting bigger, and was black in color, and was thick to palpation. My colleague who is a physician assistant told me that the growth was a mole and might be a benign Acanthosis. It might continue to grow until removed by operation. But since I did not want to have any costly surgery done on my face, he suggested me to use a herbal product named Neem O Derm for total skin care manufactured by Herbal Promise, LLC. He had used this product effectively to remove body surface moles and to resurface the skin in many individuals. He told me that Neem O Derm for total skin care was the only herbal product that could remove the unwanted mole from my skin in a natural way without any costly surgery. Without expectation, I started to apply Neem O Derm for total skin care regularly with a soaked band-aid on my mole/skin growth. I kept the oil soaked band-aid on the mole for a few hours daily. Surprisingly, I noticed within a few days that the growth began to itch and it appeared to begin to dry up and shrink. At about four weeks the growth fell off while I was taking a shower. I have no idea how a natural product can resurface the skin by eliminating a mole without any operation, but I truly endorse this product from my heart." - Mr. Bill Smith, Ohio.
"Approximately three (3) years ago, a skin lesion developed on my right temple area. Due to a strong family history of cancer, I contacted my family physician, following examination of the lesion, the physician referred me to a skin specialist. In the meantime, while waiting for the appointment with the specialist, I tried an herbal lotion Neem-O-Derm from Herbal Promise, LLC. on the lesion. Much to my surprise, after using the lotion for approximately two (2) weeks, the lesion became much smaller. I continued with my appointment with the skin specialist, due to my scare of the lesion possibly being malignant. Due to the fact that Neem-O-Derm had shrunk the lesion, the specialist had a much smaller area to remove and left me with a small scar on my temple area. I am sure with the results received in just two weeks, had I continued with the Neem-O-Derm, surgery could have been avoided and no scar would be in my face. For information, the biopsy report of the lesion was Benign Acanthosis." - Mrs. Sarah Ratliff, Radiological Technologist., KY, USA

"For a couple of years now, a mysterious "patch" had appeared on my right leg, around the lower right part of my knee. This would generally be very itchy, the skin in that area became very dry and rough and the patch kept growing in size steadily. None of the dermatologists I consulted could offer any satisfactory explanation other that its some kind of a fungal infection. No skin care treatment or medications worked either. Then a friend told me to use Neemoderm and I started using it with some amount of pessimism. But to my great surprise and joy, things started to heal. Within two weeks of using neemoderm, I could see significant improvement and now I am completely healed. The best part of this was, its non messy, you do not feel that you are "wearing" some annoying cream. Now I can wear shorts and skirts without feeling self conscious." - Ms P. Sarkar, CA, USA
"I am a housewife and have one son. In 1975 during my first year of college, I had a condition known alopecia areata (AA). I was loosing my hair and my hair color was fading to a dull gray. After trying many hair care formulation without any results, I decided to go to a dermatologist for treatment. He prescribed a few steroid preparations to apply to my scalp, and I followed his advice for two years. Unfortunately the treatment did not work, and I continued to lose my hair. At that time one of my friends recommended a product from Herbal Promise called "Herb O Hair". I bought the product and started to apply the oil preparation on my scalp three times daily, letting it absorb into my scalp. Surprisingly, I started to see results in a few months. Since I was a busy student there were times I could not strictly follow the advice of Herbal Promise, but I still saw results such as less hair loss and re-growth. After using Herb O Hair for 16 months my hair returned to normal. Now I have very healthy hair and I use Herb O Hair oil twice a week before taking my shower. I and grateful to Herbal Promise for helping to revive my normal hair where no one had any effective remedy for alopecia areata." - Mrs. D. Sen, Kolkata, India.
"Last year I was suffering from parapsoriasis. I had redness and scaly patches on my legs. Steroid therapy was not effective in resolving the problem. With the use of the product, "Neem O Derm for total skin care" I had a reduction in the redness and scaling and a reduction in subsequent outbreaks. With daily use of the product from Herbal Promise, I noted a marked healing effect. I would recommend this product as an alternative to steroid for chronic skin problems. In the areas where Neem O Derm was used, I had no relapse for the last one year and six months." - John Gerlinger. Certified Physician Assistant, KY, USA.
"In 1978, one individual came to my office on behalf of his son. The man was a physician who wanted me to come to his house to evaluate his son, who was suffering from chronic arthritis for 3 years. He had been undergoing treatment including anti-inflammatory, analgesic and injection modalities prescribed by various physicians. However, the treatment was not working, As a result, the patient lived with severe limitations, unable to walk without help, and unable to leave his house. Upon examination, I noted that the patient had severe swelling in the knee and elbow joints, as well as his ankles. Movement was compromised and he was unable to straighten his back to stand properly. When he did stand, he could only do so for about 10 minutes due to the generalized pain and discomfort. The patient, who was 19 years old, just wanted a "regular life". I advised the boy to massage the oil into all the joints as well as his legs and back. I had him do this 3-4 times daily and apply warm compress for 35-45 minutes each time to the painful joints. The doses of his other medicines were reduced accordingly. After 6 months of use of "Herbogen" the boy was able to perform daily tasks normally and was able to enjoy time spent with his friends. Thank you Herbal Promise, for helping me give hope to chronic sufferers. Herbogen has never disappointed me in the management of difficult cases during my clinical practice." - Dr. M.L.B. Kolkata
"As if having chicken pox at the age of 26 was not enough, having the spots remain on my face was pitiful. For two months, I tried vari ous lotions and remedies but to no avail. Then I used Neem O Derm, twice daily for two months, and the spots vanished. I couldn't believe it -- wish I knew about Neem O Derm earlier. My wife saw my results and applied Neem O Derm to get rid of her acne. W ithin a month, she got rid of her acne and it has been years since she had any a cne at all. We are very satisfied with using Neem O Derm, and would ask people to try it to cure acne or chicken pox spots on the face." -- Buddhadev Mukherjee, OH , USA
"I had a spider bite on my leg that subsequently caused cellulitis with swelling and induration in the area. I took antibiotics for three days with little results. I stopped the antibiotic therapy and used Neem O Derm from Herbal Promise. The next day there was a marked reduction in both swelling and redness. The induration had decreased also. Within a few days use of the product, the cellulitic area completely resolved. It was truly amazing to see the difference that Neem O Derm made with one day's use. It is refreshing to know that nature provides a great alternative to conventional medicine." - Dr. Shannon Crum, Dental Surgeon, KY, USA.
"During a December snowstorm I fell down the stairs to my apartment, severely bruising my back and buttocks. I was black and blue from the middle of my back to the middle of my thigh immediately after that accident. Following the directions for applying Herbogen from Herbal Promise by gently rubbing it on and applying heat, I was able to greatly relieve the pain immediately. I also feel that Herbogen lotion product significantly improved my healing time, since I was able to go to work the next day and all signs of the bruise were gone in less than a week! Thanks to Herbal Promise for producing such an amazing product!" - James Tennyson, DDS, KY, USA
"I am a housewife. I was suffering from contact dermatitis in my both hands since last 25 years. All good skin specialists treated me at that time in the year 1969/70. But nothing was working for the dermatitis. I used to have oozing all the time with itching. I tried all kind alternative treatment at that time. When I failed with all kind of treatments I was sure that I would not get cure in my lifetime. I used to keep my hands dressing to prevent oozing. Skins of my hands were looking black with eroded skin with ulcer. I used all kind of steroid medicine, which is used for skin disease. But nothing was working for me. One day my doctor son bought me an herbal lotion name was Neem O Derm for total skin care. My doctor son told me to use that oil lotion in my hand! I was surprise at the first time, because doctor told me not to use any oil in the skin. So many years I never use any oil or soap for my hand. But the Neem O Derm was a lotion in oil base. Surprisingly within a week I observed that my oozing and pain was less. Really I got back my normal skin color of my hands again within six month. I again started to use my hands normally. Still I am using this Neem O Derm daily to keep my hands normal and healthy. I am not using any steroid medicine since 1970 until now. Neem O Derm worked for me very well when all other remedies failed. I think this is the only herbal preparation, which is the substitute for the steroid medicine. I never had any side effect with this herbal preparation so long. I am really glade that I got an herbal preparation to substitute steroid medicine, for my chronic skin problem." - Mrs. S. Dey. Housewife, Kolkata, India.

But my acne was cured completely with the use of Neem O Derm for the Face lotion from Herbal Promise. Since more than a year, there has been no relapse of acne any time and has no scar in the face. I think this is really a very good herbal lotion that cures acne without any relapses." - Navaneeta Gupta, OH, USA.
"I am a doctor from Kolkata, India. Neem O Derm is good for skin problems such as non healing ulcer, boils, burns, acne, dandruff, hemorrhoid, foot fungus, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, stasis dermatitis, insect bites and various other acute and chronic skin problems. Herbogen is good for muscle and joint problems. I have found that both of these products are effective alternatives to the use of steroids - without any of the unwanted side effects or risks that steroid use may involve. . In 1983 when I was working as a medical officer in a rural hospital, one poor patient came to me with severe gangrene in his right leg and left foot. He had Type 1 diabetes and was unable to take his insulin regularly. The gangrene was so severe that another doctor had recommended total amputation from the knee down. I advised the patient to use Neem O Derm and Herbogen by soaking both legs and feet every four hours with each oil in an alternating pattern. . I was surprised to see that by three days of use, pulses returned to the left foot. On the fourth day seven maggots were expelled from the right leg! In sixteen weeks of using Neem O Derm and Herblgen the gangrene was cured. The patient returned to normal function without having to have his leg amputated! Since then, I have been using these herbal products and seeing wonderful results in diabetic patients. Thanks to Herbal Promise, LLC for inventing such an effective product as a natural alternative to conventional medicine." - Dr. S. B. Kolkata, India.

"I have had diabetes since I was twenty-eight years old. Now I am sixty-one. Both of my legs have had skin discoloration and ulceration for years. The ulcers would not go away or completely heal. It was not until my son bought me a sample of Neem O Derm for total skin care from Herbal Promise, that I started to heal and my skin started to return to a more normal color. If I use Neem O Derm for total skin care regularly, I have none of the skin problems that are usually associated with diabetes.

"I am writing to you concerning the use of your herbal preparation, Neem O Derm in the treatment of hemorrhoids. I have suffered with hemorrhoids for a few years now and recently had a terrible outbreak of them. I went to the doctor seeking relief and to my discouragement nothing happened. For two weeks I suffered with no improvement using the medicines my doctor prescribed. It wasn't until my housekeeper recommended Neem O Derm and I acquired some from a friend that my life started to change. Within two days of applying the herbal oil I started seeing results and in five days I had total relief. Thank you Herbal Promise for giving me an alternative to unsuccessful conventional medicine. - Pat A. KY, USA
"I am 58 years old man has had severe psoriasis for over 30 years. During those 30 years I have continuously sought out medical and alternative cure. The result was always the same. Had no relief. I am so thankful that the years of disappointment did not stop me from trying one more time. Neem O Derm for total skin care from Herbal Promise, LLC has given me the results I have waited so long years. No, this is not a gimmick or false testimony. I have suffered too long to give some one like myself false hope. Did this happen in one week? No, I have been faithful with daily application for approximately three months. I am currently seeing major results in my condition. At the current rate of improvement, I expect to be totally free of psoriasis in a few weeks. Thank you Herbal Promise." - Don Caudill, KY, USA.
"I am a housewife and I love to cook. On several occasions I have burned myself during my cooking. My husband, who is a doctor, recommended using Neem O Derm herbal lotion for total skin care on the burns. Upon using Neem O Derm I saw a return to normal skin color without any scar formation. It even cured a traumatic post-burn ulcer without scaring. Without reservation, I recommend Neem O Derm as an alternative treatment for burn areas. It will help revive normal skin without scar formation, and that is something. I have not seen with other forms of treatment". - Mrs R. Dey, Kolkata, India

My friends thought I would lose my hand, but after a daily use of Neem O Derm my skin returned to normal color and texture without scar formation." - Dr. S.B. Ashland, KY.
"In 1980, when I was in 8th grade, I had severe chicken pox. The eruptions covered my entire body and face. The doctor advised me to use lacto-calamine lotion on the large papules. However, the lotion made me "dry and itchy", and I still had severe pain and discomfort. At that time my cousin brother who was a physician, brought me Neem O Derm for total skin care from Herbal Promise and advised me to soak my skin with the herbal oil preparation.

"My name is Chris Adkins and I am a firm believer in the Herbogen product. I race motocross and while I was practicing at a practice track, I ramped approximately 25 feet high and 65 feet long and came up short on the jump and wrecked. Chipped both my anklebones and broke the Tibial bone on top of my left foot. The doctor stated to me that I would have chronic swelling and pain for at least 2 years, if not for the rest of my life. I attended physical therapy for 3 weeks and the swelling did not go down in my left foot. And still had a lot of restricted movement and pain. After using the Herbogen product for only one week, the swelling was going away and I began to gain a lot more movement in my left foot. I showed my physical therapist and he agreed that the swelling was leaving the injured area. Before using the Herbogen I felt constant pain around the left ankle and the top of my left foot. After using herbogen I feel no pain and was able to return back to motocross racing within 8 weeks from the date of injury. I am thankful for being introduced to the Herbogen product and I highly recommend the product to anyone with the same problems that I endured." - Mr. Christopher L. Adkins, KY, USA
