This article is written for Affiliates and Customers alike and addresses the concern about heavy metals raised against certain product from the specific countries.
This misconception has become a common thorn in the sides of Holistic Medicine. Basically what is happening is consumers are being forced to choose whats best for them ( & family) while in a state of panic & fear. Sometimes it can be the fear of Big-Pharma greed, and other times it can be the fear of being ripped of by placebo Snake-Oil salesmen, who aren't qualified. The best way to wade through this fog is to be educated. My intent in writing this is to support you in your position as an affiliate, please choose which parts are helpful to you, and decide what works best for you when communicating this information to your clients.
We have many products that we offer, all of which are:
1) Time-tested. Many of these Augmentation supplements have serviced these cultures, and communities for centuries. Our products have a history rich with proof of effectiveness, so this resolves the issue's of Product Effectiveness etc..
2) Self-Tested. These products are then investigated by Sevan (w\his team), to determine from start to finish the quality and effectiveness of these products. This is a process that stretches over several years. It would not be mutually beneficial for us to spend the time & money creating this infrastructure, only to risk it all, including our integrity for a couple hundred or even thousands of dollars. It's not worth it. If we were not sure, we simply would not have the product available.
3. Innerstanding the concern: For products that come from places like Tibet, India, Peru etc... If we both go to India and ask for Chulen, we will both get Chulen. What may be different is the quality (Age, Mixture, Potency, Legitimacy) depending on our sources. What also impacts the quality is how this product is handled, how it is moved, shipped etc... If a guy buys his Chulen from the same Monk we get ours from, but then puts it into a lead jar, and keeps it until he can find someone to buy it on the internet.... it's probably going to have some problems with it. It's probably picked up some air, metals, or bacteria, or worst-case scenario just doesn't work as effective to even be noticed anymore. What's going to happen to that user that orders that batch of Chulen? They are going to have a negative experience, and speak about it. That's basically what has happened when buying products from count-less middle men, and so the hysteria has already come into play.
How we communicate this issue, without giving over all of our trade secrets is something we've had to handle very tactfully. We are open to anyone purchasing our product and testing it at their leisure. We simply do not have the bandwidth to re-repeat the process we've already verified. When I first came into these products I had the same exact concern. I sent email after email to Sevan to get down to the City, company, even the Monks name who makes this stuff. So for us, yes we know this product is legit. For others, we can empathize with them. We simply removed ourselves from making choices in a place of fear & mania.
So while we cannot speak for all of the Chulen coming out of India, we can speak for our own. We can do so because we know where the misconceptions come from. You'll notice that many people who are ignorant will group together, the product not working & the product containing poisonous metals. This is because their intent is to disqualify the product, not to resolve the issue. We focus on solving the riddle, so for us, we can see it clearly.
