I’m 71 years old. Vaginal dryness has shadowed my sex life since I was postmenopausal at 46. How bad had it been for me? I’ve always looked young for my age. At 55, after a gynecological exam, the doctor said, “On the outside, you look like you’re 20 years younger but on the inside you look like you’re 80.”

At my gynecological exam on May 19, 2015, Dr. Nancy Bohannon looked up and exclaimed, “What’s going on?” It could have been a scene from a movie. This was what she later put into writing for me: “normal moisture, color, and rugae.”

The solution to my healing was seabuckthorn. This shrub’s berries and leaves that have been used medicinally and as food for thousands of years are packed with an amazing number of healthy fatty acids and micronutrients. The SBT Seabuckthorn products that restored my vaginal health as well as banished my rosacea, which is supposed to be incurable, are manufactured by Seabuckthorn International, Inc. (SII), a Canadian corporation based in Peachland, British Columbia. An SBT Seabuckthorn product also came to my rescue after I had a lumpectomy for breast cancer and faced radiation therapy. Oil made from the flesh of seabuckthorn’s berries that I put on my chest kept my skin from burning, blistering, and peeling.

What natural solution reignited my libido? To deal with some of the other side effects of radiation I got approved for a medical marijuana license. Ingesting cannabis edibles and oils helped me overcome insomnia, changes to my sense of taste, appetite loss, and stress. And there was another positive, unexpected outcome: a reignited sex drive!

My life has been transformed! I came out of retirement to be the U.S. distributor for SII’s SBT Seabuckthorn products and also a cannabis advocate!
