This month we emailed all our customers to ask them to provide us with their Aalgo story. We are overwhelmed with the responses. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
If you have an Aalgo story please get in touch with us - email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some of the amazing stories we received:
"My son has had eczema since he was under two. I have tried different diets, only root veg, only foods indigenous to Ireland (where we live), no dairy no red foods, I've seen a healer, had tonics made by 'witch doctors ' all the time I was seeing my regular doctor who prescribed steroids, steroids, steroids, I was very unhappy to put steroids on my son's young skin. I would only apply cream and steroid once a week if his skin had broken and was bleeding. I kept a diary I felt stress made him worse, food didn't seem to have an effect on his skin and in the summer as soon as the sun peeped through the clouds my son would be naked and his eczema would improve dramatically. When he was three I took him to hospital as he was scratching so much his skin was bleeding. The doctor said it was the worse eczema she had seen and referred us to Temple Street Hospital. We received an appointment for 18months later!! I was shocked.
I carried on trying any idea that was sent my way, then we went to the Ideal Home Exhibition and met a lovely man and purchased some aalgo. Everything he said would happen, happened. I bathed him, he slept. I hadn't realised how much he had tossed n turned at night until it stopped, all I could hear was silence. His bed was full of what appeared to be sand, but I know to be skin.
We have never looked back. My son's skin is fantastic!!!!!!!!!! it healed very quickly as I had never really used amy steroid on it so it was strong skin, not thin and weak.
First I noticed the quiet at night, then I noticed he wasn't rubbing himself on the sofa or he used to rub his whole body on the carpet in our living room. the itch had gone. The scratching stopped and his skin had a chance to heal. His skin is great now. It still can flare up, but nothing like it used to. Aalgo has changed our home. I have five children, three boys two girls. They all get into the seaweed bath now, I think aalgo is great
Thank You" Amanda Bennett, Ireland
"I was introduced to your products by our Naturopath when my then 2 year old son developed a eczema rash on his arms and tummy. A couple of months of regular baths in seaweed, and a slight diet modification, his skin was clear again. At that time, I tried it on the red and often inflamed skin on my cheeks, which was damaged by spending lots of time outdoors in Alaska, and being exposed to frost nip many times. Now that I live in the northern climate of Alaska again, I wouldn't be without this product! It is the only thing that soothes and heals my skin so effectively. Not to mention, it is the most relaxing bath product I have ever used. I can close my eyes and the scent instantly transports me to the sea... I love Aalgo!!" Erika Wilson, Alaska
"I was introduced to aalgo many years ago as a 'beauty' type of skin mask. I work as a colon hydrotherapist and massage therapist and as my product knowledge of a Aalgo improved I started to recommend it to clients suffering from skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
I used to give people a small sample and get them to use it as per the website instructions and almost all of them got better and ordered their own Aalgo. I have seen outstanding results, not least because my husband suffers with eczema and does really well with Aalgo. It is so gentle and soothing and one episode he had with eczema on his eyelids Aalgo was gentle enough to use on them. His eczema is highly improved now and Aalgo is an integral part of this. I also remember one particular client who suffered badly with eczema as did his son. I gave him a sample to try and 2 weeks later when I saw him, both he and his son were 90% better, having been so impressed they ordered and used Aalgo. Another lady I remember had eczema on the soles of her feet. She used it and again within 2 weeks was better. I am a huge fan of Aalgo as you can probably tell. It is a unique and powerfully effective skin treatment and is lovely to use, just as a seaweed treatment or face mask. 100% recommended." Gillian Edwards, UK
"Hi. Every winter I suffer from excema, I suppose from a lack of Sun and was spending a fortune on different creams which either didn't work or caused other skin problems. I came across aalgo at a market and after 3 baths my excema had cleared
completely! Many thanks!"
