Cat's Claw seems to be helping me heal my bladder, recently diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitic, taking down inflammation. I still do many other things to keep my ph alkaline, lots of greens, minerals, but Cat's Claw's alkaloids help with this also.

I prefer herbal tinctures and have used the cat's claw tincture several times over the years. I have used it as a part of a anti-candida protocol with good overall results. I have also used it for helping to cleanse the intestinal tract. It has been quite effective with problems of constipation as long as adequate water is taken also. Recently, I got a touch of food poisoning and the result was pretty bad stomach cramps for several hours. Within about 30 minutes or so of taking the cat's claw tincture (on an empty stomach so it can go right to work), I had about 70% improvement with full improvement in just a few hours. I keep it in my pantry all the time and would not want to be without it.

Giving this to our dog for an undiagnosed systemic candida infection. His symptoms were frequent sores in the folds of his skin and on his underside and a distinct smell of bread dough all over his body. This went way beyond regular DO. Walking into the room where he hangs out the most, smelled like a bakery in the morning. It was disgusting because it was our poor dog. The itching and scratching was unbearable to watch. He also had a voracious appetite that could never be satiated. We are now just four days in with a dose of one cap/3Xs/day. The smell is gone and his cravings have subsided. His sores are still healing but he rarely scratches now. I am truly impressed with this supp. I've begun taking it myself to help me start eating more paleo, cutting out all sugar and processed foods, including breads. I must say that it seems much easier with the herb than it was without it. Hopefully now I can become healthier and lose a little weight.

Samento, the TOA free cats claw was very very helpful with my lymes disease.

I take cats claw whenever I start to feel like I'm coming down with something. 30 - 40 drops 2 or 3 times a day. Works every time!

I suffered from Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities for 25 years. It got so bad I was bed ridden and could not leave the house. I did all I could to make myself heathy. It only worked to a point. Then one day I read about Lyme's and the connection with my symptoms. I was never diagnosed with lymes, but when the article told about Cat's Claw, I figured, 'what have I got to loose'. I took it faithfully, knowing things take time. After 2 months the Fibromyalgia suddenly made a huge improvement. Started walking a mile or more a day. About one year on the herb, I found I could go into public without getting sick from the environment. One thing though. I have to take it daily, since it seems only to control things as long as I take it.

I love cats claw.

I have allergies & get very tired & feeling bad.

Also have Epstein Barr & arthritis
When ever I feel as though im going to get ill & get on the cats claw,
and, only have to take it for a day or two ,and that's it.
I work in the a lot of different stores,& exposed to all kind of germs.
A vendor for greeting cards, and I very seldom get sick.
It truly does work.

For an entire year I could not walk without the aid of a walker my osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis was so bad in my knees and ankles and even my feet I couldn't even put pressure on them and I would drag me legs behind me. I started taking Cat's Claw on aug.15th 2011 the first thing I noticed after 2 weeks was that the swelling in my left leg went down completely and by Sept. 9th I was up and walking without my walker and I haven't touched it since. i couldn't use the stairs before I took cat's claw and now i can run....this is a miracle supplement to me...I will never stop taking cat's claw!

For many years I experienced chronic bronchitis and as a result I found myself on antibiotics quite frequently.....it was a debilitating health issue. After several years of bronchitis attacks I came across an article about Cat's Claw extract and it's ability to stimulate the immune system. I started taking 100 mg 2x/day and unbelievably all occurrences of bronchitis ceased. To this day I'm still on this regime.

i use to take a remedy of herbs including the following. 20 drops of chaga extract, 4 caps of cats claw, 4 caps of kelp, 4 caps of spirulina, and a tbls of omega 3-6-9 (orange swirl) daily... I stopped taking it because i was having a slight reaction to one of them. Im not sure which one. All that was happening is that i was getting tiny blisters on my fingers and infections in the cuticle of my fingers. I stopped taking everything but the chaga. I now realize that even though the reactions stopped when i stopped taking the product, that the benefits of taking them outweight the cons... I believe that the infections were actually caused by the cleansing. The infections were being pushed into my finger tips, which is the bosy way of cleaning its self. I believe this was actually a positive responce and I will be taking them again starting today. I can deal with my fingers having issues, because while i was taking this stuff i never got sick, i never had an outbreak of mrsa, which happens to me every 2-3 months, i was losing weight, and i had a lot more energy.

Whenever I take Cat's Claw regulary, I don't have fever blisters. Before taking Cat's Claw, I would have one or more every few weeks.

very powerful plant. with only a few drops of cat's claw tincture twice a day for several months, i was able to put my chronic lyme disease to sleep. i highly recommend finding a certified herbalist before using the extract of this plant.

I have chronic Lyme disease. Did this really work? How sick we're you? I was house bound and often bedridden sick for 2+ years. I stopped conventional therapies. I'm seeing a healer now and I'm the best I've ever been. I still have bad days but nothing compared to before! I took cats claw for a little while and just started up again a few days ago and have more energy. I'm wondering if it is the cat's claw!

as an alternative medicine practitioner and researcher, i used catsclaw on every types of diseases especially  cancer and it never failed me. cancerous tumor softens and begins to shrink in a matter of 3 weeks. this can be seen in x-ray or can be palpable when touch. i combined catsclaw with bee pollen granules consuming 3 tbps mixed with food in a day while i give  3 catsclaw  500 mg caps 3 times a day in empty stomach. of course healing takes place when following the nutritional therapy prescribed.

We give this to our son for Lyme's and he had 2 co- infections as well. He is only 6 but he takes 5 to 9 drops a day along with many other tinctures. He also takes parsley with it to help detoxify. Without it he had herxe reaction. We use nutrimedix which can be found on amazon or their website. He is also on banderol, lakoto, and houttuynia. Taken with parsley or burbur depending spoon the week. We see a holistic doctor and they have him on a schedule and we have high hopes of getting rid of it not just putting it to sleep. Serra peptase which helps many with Lynne's and pain. We were able to do a hair analysis and find he was sufficient in key minerals and overloaded with metals and parasites which is common with Lyme's. We are all taking herbs in teas but our boys are on a strict schedule since we know their results.Magnesium iis one of the things if he doesn't get it his pain quickly returns. Orother son was diagnosed but it did not invade his body as fast pie to the same degree, he is not on as much of a routine. He was 3 when we found out. It is best to go to a holistic doctor when dealing with Lyme's for me because I was fairly new to the herbal way of thinking but also knowing how dibilitating it can be scared me knowing how young they are. We are also giving our animals cats claw in case they brought it into our home. Its Scarry how many people are finding out the have lyme.

Cat Claw is also a phyto estradiol, binding to those receptors, useful against hot flashes and preserving our women's bones, could be combined with integral sesame seeds, high in Calcium, and some sunshine for the vit. D binding.

For Dianes son (astma) and other respiratory disorders, I'd rather recommend Farfara (Tusilago), opens up respiratory tract, and is anti inflammatory. Best taken as hot as possible.
