I would suggest not stopping them - as you may be forced to restart from the beginning again - but to just lower your doses for a couple of days while you still recover.
A few days of lowered doses will give your body a break, while still supporting it. Oh, and do increase your detoxing, please! Having the flu means more toxins too.
I hope you get past the flu quickly!!!
But Szabo threw the herbals back up.... so, it's not really a choice at that point.
Szabo - if your body is throwing up and not keeping the herbals down, well -- yes, I'd take a break until your body can take them. Generally missing a dose or two is not the end of the world - even with herbals.
Sorry, I was distracted - hubby got back with the new propane heater, and I had to go install it - sorry.
While I agree that skipping doses for a day or so, while a person has that much nausea or is vomiting, it's better if only lowering doses would work. It's a matter of how long you are off of the herbs and how severe the nausea is. Obviously, if you can't keep them down, then taking them is *essentially* a waste though.
Work on the nausea while you wait though, things like peppermint tea and ginger tea will help tremendously.
The concern here is more about
getting back up to where you were, so as little ground is lost as possible, but I've always been for the more gentle way with treatment, so any time I've needed to completely stop treatments I have done so.
