We have found that we can't get to recommended dosages with anything other than Japanese knotweed.
My personal feeling is that a little bit of all Buhner's suggested herbs is better than a whole lot of one. His associate has told me this as well. And that low doses (so you can at least function) over a long period (we've just started our 2nd year) will work as well as high doses over a short period.
My daughter can now boot it up significant hills on her bike with no shin pain, no thigh pain, no head pain. This is a kid that couldn't make it half-way up the stairs without sitting down 3 years ago.
Just a head's up with sida. We didn't herx horribly with it and made it up to 1 dropper full (32 drops) 3x daily, but after a couple of months our hair started feeling greasy and falling out. We backed off to 15 drops (including what's in the CSA) and hair came back.
