I just wanted to write to tell you how impressed I am with your products. For many years I have struggled to find organic products that are truly healthy and that work! Your shampoo, hairspray and skin lotion are all top notch and I, not only like them, -- I love them! So thank you for doing such a good job and I am so tickled that you are a Canadian company! I hope your business is as successful as you want it to be!
Thank you for the high quality, value and affordability.
Dave - (Strauss Prostate), Kamloops, BC - November 1, 2012
My name is Dave, I am a retired Fire Fighter and I have lived in Kamloops for the past 9 years. I just had to write this letter to THANK YOU for changing my life in a very unusual way.
I used to, and I emphasize use to, have sudden urges to empty my bladder. When nature called I had to make a bee line for the bathroom. Sometimes the urges would happen 10 minutes apart and sometimes they would be 30 minutes apart. There was no schedule for me. I heard about your Prostate formula and decided to give it a try. My sudden urges had completely stopped within 3 days of using the product! I have been given my bladder control back. I don’t have to rush into the house after arriving home from being out. I no longer miss parts of conversations with friends by excusing myself and rushing off to the bathroom. I could go on and on with other things I missed out on because of my sudden urges I couldn’t control. Those urges are now not a part of my lifestyle anymore.
So a great big thank you from me to all the persons involved in making this product.
Thank You Strauss Herb Company!

Dear Strauss Herb Company,
I just wanted to thank you for what you are doing for people. This has been an eye-opening year. I am a young mom and am healing naturally from advanced cancer. Through this journey of finding what it means to truly heal my whole self, more and more levels of change are becoming clear to me: my diet, the products I use in my home, on my body, and what I provide for my family... and that's not even starting into the condition of the heart and mind. Part of these realizations has had me believing that the whole world was against me- toxins everywhere, all foods contaminated, poisons in our water, conspiracies every where I look, greed, selfishness... That mindset can get a little depressing. But I have begun to see how much people are actually changing, looking for change, making it happen, seeking, learning- it gets incredibly exciting to be a part of it all. In the search for something as simple as shampoo, I could not find an honest, legitimately clean product any where I looked. I scoured. I tried a few that still had a few undesirable ingredients (labeled incognito on the bottle)- the result was "dog-fur" hair! I thought I'd give up and just get my own dog-fur results by making my own vinegar and baking soda recipes at home. My hair was awful! But when I read your ingredients and Googled them, I was impressed. It all said what it claimed. And my hair? So incredibly soft and smooth! This is awesome! Something simple, but when life is complicated, this is a very, very good thing! Thank you for the difference you make.
Oh, and I forgot to mention in my last comment that when I read where this product is made, just so happened to be my home town! I’m an Albertan now, but made me proud to be from Kamloops.
Les - (Strauss Heartdrops), Vancouver Island, BC - August 2, 2012
I had cancer when I was 10 years old and went through 2 years of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. One of the drugs they used was called adriamycine (forgive spelling). The adriamycine is very hard on your heart and ten years later I went from a normal 20 years old young man to not being able to physically lift myself off the couch. Just existing was like running a marathon and I was dying. After 4 months in the hospital and a few trips to the critical care unit for crashing I had enough knowledge to at least keep myself stable. One day the doctor came in and told me that they had found a node on my lung and did a biopsy and found another cancerous growth. I was now diagnosed with end stage congestive heart failure and lung cancer. Because of the lung cancer I was taken off of the heart transplant list and because of the heart condition I wouldn't survive another round of chemotherapy. I was sent home with a prescription for my heart meds and a six month timeline as to how long I was going to live. They sent me home so I would be in familiar surroundings when my final breath was taken.
Being as that I was only 20 years old, I had no intention of dying. One day I wandered into a health food store in my hometown and explained my story to the woman working. After a few tears and a heartfelt hug from her she showed me Strauss Heartdrops. I began as directed and continued to increase my dosage until I was taking 2.5ml/3x a day. After 6 months I began to be able to go for walks without seeing stars. The feeling like someone was standing on my chest started to subside. I remember the first time I fell asleep on my back - it was a small miracle because before it had felt like I was drowning.
I reported to my cardiologist appointments as ordered and was stunned as I watched my improvement not only on a personal level but in a controlled environment using the best in modern equipment. I am 33 years old now and am happily living my life out on Vancouver Island and I owe it all to you and your company. You saved my life and I can never re-pay what you have done for me. There is so much more to this story but I just wanted to give you the gist of it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Mike - (Strauss Heartdrops), Kamloops, BC - April 24, 2012
I suffered a heart attack on October 1, 2003. Medically speaking, it was considered a major with 2 arteries at 90% and one at 100% plugged. I spent 3 weeks in Kamloops Hospital, 1 week in ICU. I had an angiogram at Kelowna Hospital on October 16, 2003. I returned to Kamloops Hospital awaiting transfer to St. Pauls for a stent procedure (a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries). The procedure was performed at the beginning of November. More stent procedures were performed at the beginning of December. All stent procedures failed. I had another angiogram in Kelowna in February and one in March. A decision was made to perform a quad bypass with a tentative date of March 20th, 2004. I received a call from the surgeon at St. Pauls to come down for a pre-op consultation in 5 days. Surgery was post-poned to accommodate 2 other cases considered more severe.
Frustrated and upset, I was sent home. I noticed a Strauss Heartdrop add in the local paper and decided to give it a try. At this time I could not walk 2 blocks. Within 10 days I walked 5 blocks. 4 weeks later, I was walking 20 blocks. I then received a call from the surgeon at St. Pauls to come in for a check-up and prep for surgery. I waltzed into his office; he checked me over and asked if I was on some kind of herb medicine. I said yes. His comment was, “Something has changed here, go home and do exactly what you are doing and taking, surgery will not be necessary at this time. Should you experience any difficulty, let me know immediately”. I maintained my 3 times daily intake of Heartdrops, the second year reduced it to 2 a day and now I’m on once a day for maintenance purposes. I have not had to call the doctor and have gradually increased my walk to 2 miles a day without any adverse effect and have been playing golf regularly since 2004!
When I was released from the hospital, I was put on lipitor. It weakened my left wrist. As well as causing constant discomfort I have had trouble with my golf swing. I will continue with this disability. I dumped the pills after six weeks. When I told my doctor I had done so, his comment was “It does effect some people in this way”.
DALE - (Strauss Heartdrops) - April 12, 2012
Ok, you have a believer in me and a very impressed doctor. I just got my cholesterol test back.
My total cholesterol dropped from 6.46 to 4.60. Triglycerides dropped from 5.09 to 3.15, which my doctor said was still high but a great change and heading in the right direction. LDL calculation was invalid: when last tested as my Triglycerides were so high an accurate measurement was not possible. LDL is now 2.07 HDL went from 1.04 to 1.09, which the doctor said was still too low but heading in the right direction. Cholesterol/HDL ratio dropped from 6.19 to 4.21.
So I never told my doctor I had been taking Heartdrops for the last year. He couldn’t believe that diet and exercise could make that much of a change. I told him that I had been eating a bit better and getting a bit more exercise but nothing major, except that I had been taking Heartdrops. He was very impressed and said he could not argue with the facts and he told me to continue taking whatever it was that I was taking.
So please let Pete know and thank him for me and feel free to share this data with him.
I. Hoell - (Strauss Heartdrops), Delta, BC - June 9, 2010
Dear Strauss Company,
In 2005 my husband suffered a colossal heart attack that went on for 1 ½ hours. His heart was oversized and after the attack was sloppy and a heart transplant was spoken of. 25% of his heart died off. So he had the usual; a 6 bypass operation and 2 angioplasties thrown in for good measure. After 2 weeks he was discharged and I brought home a barely living corpse. Month after month went by with no great improvement and at 8 months, he suffered severe heart failure, requiring hospitalization to remove the fluids. His legs swelled to the size of elephant’s legs. He looked miserable and felt life had nothing more to offer him than a slow excruciating death. His legs were ice cold to the knees as well.
It was at this time a friend came to the rescue. She sized up the situation and showed me this miracle. I went out the next day a bought a bottle of Heartdrops®. I marked on the calendar when we started and lo and behold, day 14 was THE day of improvement! His legs were warm!!!! His cir circulation was back! We literally danced around the kitchen. Willi has been taking this wonderful product 4 years now. They wanted to operate again and give him a defibrillator and this product regulated the beat. The amount of energy this product has given him is stupendous. He works daily in the garage, plying his hobby, sausage making. He works in the garden, cuts the grass, moves heavy object around… I can’t say enough about this product.
Over time, we threw away 7 prescription medications that did nothing for him but made things worse. Today he takes 1 pill a day to slow down the heart and his good health comes from Strauss Heartdrops®! I’m not stupid either, I take them everyday to PREVENT these problems. I tell everyone who will stand still about this miracle.
I find it strange how many people suspiciously eye this harmless product and refuse even to consider taking it. And yet they swallow everything the doctor writes prescriptions for without batting an eyelid and continue receiving more and more doctor advised poisons and keep becoming more sick but they never get the message. Oh yes, Willi is 70 years old.
So there you have the unvarnished truth. My hat is permanently off to the Strauss Company.
KEN - (Strauss Heartdrops)
The December 1998 message from the best medical people in my area was "Sorry - we can do nothing more for you - make sure your estate is in order - Good-bye!"
I started phoning my friends to say good-bye. One friend told me about the Strauss Heartdrops®. I phone Strauss Herb Company® and received a large bottle of the Heartdrops® and started taking them on January 31, 1999. At that point in time I could only walk a few feet and would then need to rest. In 45 days I could walk a mile without rest, I could swing a sledge hammer - I started to work again.
Today, my blood pressure is good, cholesterol is fine and my homosystine levels are in the perfect range. I can work 12 hour days. I have my life back. For the last two years my GP has not even checked my heart. We just do not talk about it anymore. Let me say a huge thank you for my new life.
JOHN - (Strauss Heartdrops)
Thank you for the latest bottle of Heartdrops®. I am just about to start taking them in the next few days. When I started taking them on October 15, 2007, I was so skeptical over their ability to improve my heart and strength in general. But I'm still thriving on them. I was in such a mess at that time.
At our hospital they told me and my wife I'd have only three months left if I didn't have a pacemaker fitted. This was installed in February after another set back where I'd collapsed at work due to too high a dosage of blood pressure medication. My blood pressure is now very good at 118/76. At the hospital they can't believe that my pacemaker hasn't activated at all since February. It was meant to restart my heart if it stopped at all. They are really puzzled, not wanting to believe that Strauss Heartdrops® are so effective and only believe that the drugs are doing the trick.
Again, many thanks for such marvelous medicine. It's transforming my life. I think by now I might have been dead or like a sedated zombie at least. Now I lead virtually a normal life.
DEBORAH- (Strauss Rosehips)
I have had continual bladder infections since having three children. For 2 years my general practitioner had me on different prescription drugs for this problem, continually changing my medication as my system would become immune to the drug after 3 months and two day surgeries with no success to ending this medical problem. I have not filled a prescription in two years since taking the Rosehips. Not only has it improved my bladder problem, it has also taken the pain out of my shins from not enough calcium in my body and further, this herb has prevented me from getting cold after cold which in the past I had a problem with.
HERBERT- (Strauss EZ Breathe)
I was treated for asthma and was hospitalized in February and March of 2000. I don't believe in taking drugs or injecting chemicals, but they were necessary to keep me alive. I was aware of the many serious side effects the medication could cause, i.e. the rapid depletion of calcium from my bones. When I discovered EZ Breathe Drops and Ez Breathe Tea would relieve all the symptoms without the use of prescription drugs, I was ecstatic. I would recommend Strauss all-natural herb products to anyone who wants to restore and maintain good health.
CHRIS- (Strauss Thyroid)
The thyroid capsules - I love them - have removed all my PMS symptoms; I don't have any more low emotional times. And they helped me lose 15 lbs in a month. And, I continue to lose not only weight but inches! The thyroid capsules feeds, nourishes and regulates an under active or over active thyroid. Now I'm at the gym working out, which is really exciting. All in all I have a new lease on life - I'm healthy, happy and strong.
