Today I wanted to talk to you about a product that may not interest all of you, but some of you may be very interested. I had hoped to give you a full review, but due to all of the health issues I have been dealing with I am constantly running behind on my blog post and I didn’t want to put this off. So you may end up with a follow-up post on this or at least some post on social media letting you know what I think later. Currently I am only a couple of weeks into taking this. I think a month to a month and a half is really needed to give a full accurate opinion.
So lets talk about what this is. The product is the LOMALUX Dandruff Pill. It is a homeopathic medication (I will talk about what that means in a bit) designed to temporarily relieve the symptoms of dandruff. It is a combination of seven active minerals. It is lactose free, gluten free, and vegan. It does have a warning on the box to not take this if you have kidney disease, under fifty pounds, or breast feeding. So those are some things to consider before taking this. Also, the product claims have not been reviewed by the FDA. I personally don’t care about that factor, but I know some people do, and I want you to be fully informed when I review products like this.
I was interested in reviewing this product because I do have many dandruff symptoms as a part of my contact dermatitis. Ironically I can’t use most dandruff shampoos because they include ingredients that I am allergic to and would trigger my contact dermatitis, in effect causing more dandruff. The couple I have found in Korean brands that do work for me are so expensive I can’t afford them often. I thought if this dandruff pill worked it might be a great alternative option.
Before I go any further on my thoughts about this product and any results I have seen lets talk about what homeopathic medicine is. While homeopathic medicine is considered to be in the field of natural remedies it is not the same as vitamins and minerals people are more commonly familiar with. Homeopathy is based on the idea that like cures like, so a chemical that causes an illness will cure the exact same illness, for the example caffeine would cure sleep loss. Except with homeopathy the thought is the cure needs to be diluted down, and the more diluted it is the more effective the cure. I tend to think of homeopathy as the naturopaths version of a vaccine without needles. If you would like to find out more information on homeopathy works there is a very well explained article on WebMD that does a great job of giving both the perspective of people for and against the use of homeopathic remedies.
My personal experience with homeopathy prior to this had been limited but good experiences, so I was very open to trying the LOMALUX Dandruff Pills. So let’s get on with more about the product and what I have thought so far.
Here is what the actual bottle look like. I have made the pictures clickable so if you want to see the pictures larger to read the ingredient list or the directions.
As I said earlier I have only been taking these for a couple of weeks now, so what I can say on how well they work is minimal. I do feel like I am seeing some results. However at this point it is hard to tell if it’s the pills or I am just in less contact with things that re setting my contact dermatitis off.
While I haven’t found the pills to have a bad taste or cause me heartburn, there have been some things I found challenging in taking these. First off you are supposed to take these first thing in the morning or right before bed on an empty stomach, and with nothing but water within an hour of taking the pills. This is a big challenge for me since I typically have a cup of coffee as soon as I get up in the morning, and at night right before bed is when I take all of my medicine, some of which requires I eat a little something with it. But also there is the size and texture of the pills. I have never been one of those people who have had a difficult time taking pills, even if they are large. But let me show you what we are actually talking about:
They are quite large and have a chalky texture. I found it hard to get them to go down without sticking in my throat. I definitely can not take more than one of these at a time, and I have to be very careful how I swallow when I do.
One other thing to be aware of if you are interested in taking these, the dosage is based on your weight. This makes sense for a lot of things, but with this it can lead to some pretty large amounts of pills you are taking. I think most of us that are plus size are going to the categories of taking either six, eight, or ten pills a day.
So at this point your probably wondering if its worth taking the pills. Honestly, I can’t answer that for you, I can only tell you what I think for myself. And yes, as long as I continue to see improvements in condition, I absolutely think it is worth it.
If you are interested in trying this product out yourself you can find it on the LOMALUX website. You can also find it in the vitamin isle at select Walgreens.
I did receive this complimentary bottle from the company for review purposes. However, all opinions are my own.
Tell me in the comments below if you have tried any homeopathic treatments before and what your experience with it is.
