I feel for you. I have a son in University and can't imagine what he would be going though if he was dealing with school and illness too.
The powdered herbs come in 1lb bags
Every morning I boil water and measure 1/2 c into a small Pyrex measuring cup. Into that I put all the powdered herbs for the day, cover (so volatile compounds don't escape) and cool (cooling though a range of temperatures extracts more compounds than does drinking it hot).
So for us, 3/4 tsp knotweed powder, 1 tsp cordyceps powder, 1 tsp houttuynia powder go into the measuring cup with the water.
After the infusion has cooled, stir and measure 1 and 1/4 oz into a shot glass, making sure to get the suspended solids. This will insure you not only get the compounds extracted in the infusion, but you will also extract other compounds from the herbs via the acid in your stomach.
To this add the tinctures that you need for the dose. ie. at 8am I would add 15 drops CSA, 5 drops red root, one squeeze bulb (35 drops or 1/4 tsp) of ginger, one squeeze bulb of rhodiola and shoot it down.
At 3pm, measure another 1 and 1/4 oz of infusion and add the afternoon tinctures.
At 9pm, add the tinctures to the remaining infusion and down it all.
We also supplement methylated B vitamins (Activated B Complex Swanson Ultra) on M, W, F, with sublingual methyl B12 on those days as well.
We supplement chelated minerals daily (Sisu), as well as 600mg magnesium citrate daily (300 mg at bedtime, 150 mg in the am, and 150 mg in the afternoon.)
Probiotics are taken at noon (either Culturelle or Align) and at 5pm (a rotation of RenewLife Ultimate Flora, AOR Probiotic-3 and Prescript
Assist), with fermented vegetables before bed.
Probiotics will be necessary if you are using CSA or cryptolepis. It is a very potent antimicrobial and will cause yeast to overgrow in the gut.
We have gotten rid of significant electrosensitivity with organic cilantro tincture (FlowerFairy) 3 drops 3x daily, and Diatomaceous Earth (1tbsp 2x daily).
Red root did wonders for brain fog.
At the above listed dosages, the powdered herbs will last 6 months and the tinctures for 2 at least, for 1 person.
