I started both of these this week for all of us. I waited until summer because I was very nervous about dealing with reactions/setbacks during school year. They are already on low dose (5 drops) of Woodland Essence CSA Cryptolepis, Sida and Alchornea).
I suspect bartonella is the main issue for Kid#3, probable issue for Kid#2 (think it's more babesia lately), and probable for myself. Just going through everything we can for Kid#1 to maintain his health (he's been well now for months).
We have done 1 drop on day 1, break on day 2 to recover!, 1 drop on day 3, and break on day 4 to recover. We are starting insanely slowly because of the reaction to just 1 drop on first day.
Kid#1: No major reaction noted (possibly slightly more irritable, but he's a teen so it could go either way! LOL)
Kid#2: Definite reaction. It was more increased irritable, anger, and generally tanking/non-functioning.
Kid#3: Definite reaction as well. Increased negative mood/emotional.
Me: Day 3 knocked me out - I felt overwhelmingly sad and "off" (just not myself). Much better on day 4 though.
Needless to say, NOT a good week here!
Once I get up to 5 drops, I'll probably increase the CSA and houttuynia/isatis all together at the same time (if we even are able to go higher).
Love to hear others experiences. And if any suggestions/feedback on my plan is always welcome!!
