there are different qualities and also copies out there of the product. the herbs in the original crystal stick can actually heal cysts. i have witnessed it happen in some women using Secret Ceres (www.secret-ceres.com), which is a pricier version and believed to be the original version. It has gotten very popular by word of mouth. I have been using it myself for quite some time now and am VERY happy with its benefits. it makes sense that a cheap product cannot be packed with quality. 1 of the herbs costs $3000/kg, most of the cheap copies don't have many of the key ingredients, cause they want to make it available for a cheaper price. good luck and appreciate you sharing your story.
