    I regularly get mailouts for "miracle" products from this company, (same phone & PO box, "Sanoma Garden") all making totally ridiculous claims. Tried returning the address panel with my details and requesting removal from their mailing list, which was ignored.

    You will wait the best part of a month or more for a refund due to the fact they use a warehouse in Hong Kong.. if they goods have to go back there and then get a cheque back to you then it will take way longer

    Thing that the majority of you all fail to understand about both Sanoma Garden and Natural Health Specialists is where they have come from and what they actually do... how all of their products are natural ingredient based and you all think that everyone is going to get healed. Just not the case..

    So, from some serious digging and actually understanding the companies and their roots I can fill you in on the following;

    Sanoma & NHS are sister companies who were formulated in the United Kingdom, due to their expansion they have moved to serve other parts of the world. They have chosen to retain their call centre or offices in England and use PO Box addresses in Australia & NZ to make sure customers don't have to pay international postage as they work from a warehouse in Hong Kong.

    All the products they sell are based on natural plant and mineral extracts, and they offer a variety of Money Back Guarantee's on their products. If you want to action any refund then you need to telephone their offices - Sanoma Garden AU 1800 788 131) Sanoma NZ (0800339003) & Natural Health AU 1800 559 227) and Natural Health NZ (0800863388) if you tell them you are sending the goods back they will mark the orders correctly. What I found and learned from my own first error is that when you send goods to the PO Box address, they then send that to Overseas warehouse (Hong Kong I am guessing) to be refunded. Then when the goods get there people are not getting their money as they didn't call and are out of their money back time.

    The biggest issue is the products, but not an issue for them, everybody is different and if you want to call taking a natural product a scam then be my guest. if it doesn't work for you then send the thing back. I put both my mother and father in Sanoma Gardens Copper Insoles and if it was not for them then they wouldn't be walking about anymore... So actually this product did work. I am sure some do and some don't work but we are all better trying these things without a risk of loss of money (eventually) especially when doctors just try to pump us full of drugs...

    Anyway, rant over...

    I imagine they (Sanoma Garden) are working on a shoestring budget of snail=mail and snail=phone with NO COMPUTERS? The lack of an EMAIL ADDRESS is somewhat worrying these days--BUT--I've ordered from them twice (Reishi) and received the correct articles each time. Quality Assurance is another matter with ANY company. Rod

    Thanks to the detox pads I have eliminated all bad toxins from my bath tub and coffee table.
    If the patches are put on anything damp it changes the colour of the crap that is in the pads.
    Don't fall for this scam

    There's no reliable evidence that detox foot pads work.

    Manufacturers of detox foot pads say that their products draw toxins out of your body while you sleep. Some manufacturers have claimed that detox foot pads also treat high blood pressure, headaches, cellulite, depression, diabetes, insomnia and aid in weight loss.


    Detox foot pad are stuck on the bottom of your feet and left there overnight, purportedly to draw out toxins, such as heavy metals. When you peel off the detox foot pad in the morning, its darkened or discolored appearance supposedly reflects the toxins that have been removed from your body.

    However, no scientific studies have been published that show that detox foot pads work or that they're safe. The Federal Trade Commission has even charged some distributors of detox foot pads with deceptive advertising.

    The bottom line: As with anything that sounds too good to be true, your best bet is to wait for scientific evidence that proves a claim before investing your time and money

    After receiving the advertising material in the mail, I called the 1800 No. & got an girl with a strong British accent who was abrupt & not very helpful. Offered a money back guarantee if not happy, but at $2.00 a pill, I declined. After reading so many negative reports, I'm glad I'm glad I kept my money.
