FILISA testimonials

A selection of customer feedback we have received about FILISA, Sutherlandia Frustescens, an adaptogenic herb


Hi Lesley,

I wanted to share my experience with you and also to say thank you for your brilliant Filisa which has quite literally saved my life !

I have three children aged 24, 20 and 18. At the age of 44, and after being fortunate enough to have been a stay at home mum, I found myself having to face the prospect of my youngest daughter going off to the other side of the country to university. As this date has approached I've found myself getting more and more depressed at the thought of not having any of my children at home any more. They have been my life and although the 2 big ones are off making their own lives, this daughter is my baby and it's been so terribly hard to cope with. I'm also peri-menopausal I think which doesn't help matters. Everything seems to be coming to an end.

My friend suggested that I get some Filisa and so I started to take it a couple of months ago. I can honestly say that it has helped me so much to deal with this (what seems to be a monumental) change in my life. I've been trying so hard to hide my feelings from a: my daughter, because she doesn't deserve to be under any pressure and b: my husband, who says he's really looking forward to it just being the two of us. We married quite young and had our children quickly so he doesn't feel as if we've had 'our time' together yet.. I couldn't see that at all and just felt bereft and thoroughly miserable.

In the last two months Filisa has helped me to get back in control, to see the positive side of this and to feel hopeful and happy. I've joined Weightwatchers, in an attempt to get my 19 year old figure back, I've volunteered at the local hospice shop a couple of days a week, and I've taken up badminton again. I've also started to look, with my lovely husband, at us taking our first solo holiday together. My kids say they're proud of me - how good is that - and my husband can't quite believe the new me. Even my strange hot flush episodes seem to have gone.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart - I can now go on to this new phase of my life full of optimism and joy that I have been blessed to have had my wonderful children at home with me for so long. Time for me to move on now and embrace this time in my life.

Please feel free to use this letter in any way that will help more women in my situation.

Yours very sincerely,
Ruby (by email)


I have lived with "sadness" and a deepening depression most of my adult life and have had tablets after tablets from my long suffering doctor but to no avail.

I am 66, still working, and not really living but wobbling from day to day.

I phoned for your capsules [FILISA] and when they came in so did the sun.

I am really grateful to you for your kindness on the phone and your amazing gift of "living".

Thank you for the prompt receipt of my order. As usual the high quality of this product and the standard of service are second to none.

Filisa has had a positive and sustained effect upon a psoriasis/eczema type condition that had developed on the back of my ears and had been troubling me for about 4 years. After 3 months of treatment with Filisa this condition completely disappeared.

Also, the menopausal night sweats that I had been enduring for the past few months disappeared without trace.

I am extremely pleased with the results and relieved to find a herbal remedy that negates any need for pharmaceuticals. I would readily recommend Little Herbal products.

I want to say how much Filisa has helped me in such a short time of taking them.

I had become extremely stressed, exhausted and depressed due to having become the main carer to my partner. He had a fall in June and banged his head which caused him to have a bleed into his brain. Our lives will never be the same again now. He has suffered a certain amount of brain damage and at one point was very ill. I could not get any help despite desperate phone calls to the appropriate people, so I struggled on alone. Consequently I got to the point where I was utterly and absolutely exhausted and so stressed. I pulled myself together because I really had no choice. But I was getting short tempered and at times cross with my partner, due to the way I was feeling, and it wasn't his fault.

I read an article in Yours magazine about Filisa. I sent off for 3 months supply straight away. I cannot believe how so much better I feel. It did not happen overnight. I just suddenly after noticed a change in myself after a week or so. I was coping so much better and things were not getting to me as before.

For the first time since June 7th I seemed to feel more carefree and happy. I was laughing more with my partner and we began to plan things to do together.

I can't thank you enough for the Filisa. How I feel now is unbelievable and so different to 3 weeks ago.

Yours with such gratitude.

Hi Lesley,

G here again.

My "little friends" Filisa were my saviour again the week before and during the Christmas period.

My partner had a set-back and was admitted to hospital again. He came home on Christmas Eve in a most confused and disorientated state.

It was a very trying few days when he first got home, but thanks to Filisa I coped without any trouble. I still cannot believe how I take things in my stride now where before I would be a wreck. I feel sure that my new found calmness has helped him because I am not on edge for "want-of-a-better-word" nagging at him to do the smallest thing. It is not plain sailing by any means but I do not get so anxious or uptight about things. I feel so well within myself too.

My youngest son has had one of my bottles to help him through the breakup of his relationship and he is pleased with how he feels now.

Again many many thanks for the Filisa.

My friend H gave me the Filisa, to give me strength, after a really bad 3 months. I have been taking them a month. I no longer feel like crying all the time. before I would have just sat in my chair not moving, thinking that life just wasn't the same anymore.

Since taking Filisa, it hasn't hidden or masked things so that you don't know how you feel. It helps you to get strength from within and helps you to look at your situation in a more positive and clearer approach.

Many thanks.

Dear Lesley,

Many many thanks for the excellent service and excellent product.

After a few short weeks Filisa has restored my confidence and well-being, helping me cope with a particularly stressful time. I feel as though my normally cheerful resilience has returned and am very grateful.

I am now a confirmed fan. Please encourage others to give it a try.

With all best wishes and thanks

For some number of years i have suffered anxiety and stress. Since discovering Little Herbal and Filisa through a recommendation and desperation some five years ago.I have been able to get my anxiety under control.

With a little perseverance and knowing when to increase and decrease the dosage, i have had great results. I now feel calm, level and more able to cope in times of stress.

I must say after taking Filisa for 4 weeks now I'm beginning to feel human again and more able to cope after a horrific family tragedy. Thank you for your kind words and also words can't express my thanks. It's so comforting to know that there are people who genuinely care.

Please send me a months supply of Filisa. I have had these before and feel 100% better.

Hi there,

Filisa is the best thing ever. After I lost my job 6 months ago I felt so depressed and directionless. My friend gave me your brochure and I started taking Filisa 2 months ago. I'm telling everyone about it because I feel GREAT! THANKYOU Little Herbal!

Dear Little Herbal,

I just want to say thank you so much for your brilliant Filisa. Since the death of my dad 13 years ago I have suffered from depression and anxiety, combined with panic attacks. I read about Filisa in the Sunday Times and decided to give it a go. Four months on and I'm a different person and Filisa has quite literally given me my life back. Gone are the dark moments when life didn't feel worth living and when I could hardly be bothered to get up some days. I have been able to stop taking Citalopram and just take my 4 capsules of Filisa every day now. I've recommended Filisa to so many friends and I would like to say thanks for all your help and support as well. You're a great Company and it's obvious that you really do care.
