Please note this post contains affiliate links from which I may make a purchase at no extra cost to you. The post was also updated on 10/30/2020 and now only includes 4 or our top 5 best selling products, because one affiliate isn’t treating me fairly. So instead of including their product, I’m including the ingredients it contains and how to purchase them, without promoting or profiting from a disreputable company. Thank you.
I recently decided to pull the stats I have available on the products we’ve reviewed to see what people are most interested in. It helps to know where to focus my efforts so I know we’re providing the information you crave the most. Not surprisingly, they’re pretty much in line with the products that have by far brought me the most relief in my own health journey. Some of the numbers even shocked me, but by the time I finished tabulating the number of items sold, it’s clear that people are looking for effective, natural ways to relieve their worst spoonie symptoms.
It occurred to me this is valuable information to share, especially for our newer viewers who may not have been around when they were originally published. Since these product reviews symbolize years of work, there’s probably one or two new things for even some of our oldest subscribers!
Without further ado, I bring you the top 5 best selling products I’ve reviewed over the last two years!
In first place by a wide margin is Quercetin and it’s the perfect time of year to revisit this important mast cell stabilizer. It turns out people with MCAS/D, allergies and asthma love that they can get relief from a natural, food-based supplement as much as I do! I’ve been on it for nearly two years now and it makes a huge difference in all of my MCAS and IC related symptoms and the foods I can eat. Learn more about it in Quercetin and MCAD’s
#2. Hypermobility Without Tears
Ranking #1 in 2019 and #2 overall is the book helping people with hypermobility preserve and improve their mobility while getting great relief from nagging joint and muscle pain. If you’re a bendy type, this book is a must read. Check out my review for all the details: Book Review: ‘Hypermobility Without Tears’ by Jeannie Di Bon.
#3. Supplements that support Acetylcholine production
This was once about a product that I loved, but the company isn’t as reputable as I was lead to believe, so instead of sharing it with you, I am instead sharing the ingredients necessary to support and normalize acetylcholine production. Acetylcholine is very important to the health of our nervous system and has a powerful effect on the vagus nerve, a large nerve that runs from our brains to our bowels and may well connect with your sexual organs. The vagus nerve plays an important role in gut health and communication to the brain and can significantly impact our autonomic system, contributing to POTS and other forms of dysautonomia.
Decreased Acetylcholine production can also increase our anxiety levels, cause mental confusion (brain fog) and affect our central nervous system. Much like glutathione, the best way to support acetylcholine production is to take the building blocks that will allow your body to make your own. To achieve this support, you simply need to supplement acetyl-l-carnitine, thiamine and huperzine A. It sounds like a lot, but in reality, you can save quite a lot of money over the proprietary blend that I used to be affiliated with.
#4. Ashley Black’s FasciaBlasters
My statistics are definitely off on this product and in reality probably ranks much higher, but I only just became an affiliate a couple of months ago and I’ve only been on Amazon for about a year. Prior to that, I have no idea how many people acted on my advice. These tools can bring about big relief by breaking up myofascial adhesions that build up over time. These adhesions cause chronic muscle and joint point and very well may be associated with the tenderpoints found in people with fibromyalgia. Myofascial therapy can even help your fascia work to better support the loose joints of people with EDS. To learn more about myofascial pain and how to relieve it, check out my initial review, Fascia Treatments for EDS and Fibromyalgia
#5. Mast Cell United
Amber Walker created a comprehensive guide for Masties with this easy to understand book. It explains in depth the condition and the many ways there are to treat Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. It also include detailed information on diagnosis. Many people have chosen to make this their MCAS bible, including me. You can learn a lot more about it in my Book Review: ‘Mast Cells United’ by Amber Walker
