I am looking up cat's claw and japanese knotweed on amazon right now and am wondering what brands everyone uses? I need pill form and lot of them seem to have magnesium stearate as a filler. Any suggestions?

Also, what does everyone take for parasites?

I use Green Dragon Botanicals for pill form. http://greendragonbotanicals.com/ Buhner has recommended this company.

I'm currently on a 30 day parasite cleanse called Humaworm. I'm on day 10. Trying to clear out before commiting to Buhner's fully. Can only handle taking knotweed while doing a parasite cleanse. Humaworm link below.

I was looking at Green Dragon Botanicals but looks like they have one that contains a bunch of the herbs and i wanted to start with the herbs separately so was scared to jump all in. Did you buy them individually though green dragon?

I will check out humaworm as am thinking the same thing. Do parasite cleanse first.

Overall I have been doing pretty well but keep picking up viruses so my immune system is just so low. I am thinking I need to start doing something...

Green Dragon has a combined formula of Buhner's core protocol, but they do sell each herb individually as well. I only purchased the Japanese Knotweed. I found the rest at a local herb shop. I plan on buying bulk whole herb powder formula of the full protocol once I run out. Seems cheaper in my opinion and Buhner does slightly mention that he prefers powder form, for our bodies can take out what is needed from the whole herb. I believe tincture, pill etc will work though. I'm mainly doing it to save money. I've spent so much money on supplements! I am also taking gelatin powder (1 tbs daily) and Vit-C (2000 mg) for collagen/immune support as well as Mag Citrate for my muscle twitching. All are recommended in his book. The collagen support is part of his main protocol.

Green Dragon is overpriced and imo not all that great. Don't like plumflower either but Nuherbs has been phenomenal

I definitely need to do pill form. I see Gaia Herbs has the Japanese Knotweed (Resveratrol) and I have had great luck with their brand of Turmeric and Oil of Oregano so I might give that one a try. Gaia doesn't make Cat's Claw though in a pill, just the extract, but I am worried about taste...

Xabian-it looks like the Humaworm is a pill form, is that correct and do you think it's working? Are you able to work while taking it or does it make you sick to your stomach?

If you need to do pill form you could just get a capsule machine. It would still be substantially cheaper than buying encapsulated herb. The markup for prepared herb compared to powdered or unprocessed is absurd

Is it the taste you can't tolerate - in the tincture form?

Thing is with the pills/capsules....when you get up in dose on 4 or more herbs - you will be swallowing a ton of pills...that's why I switched to the tinctures.

I think I was up to 4 capsules of both JK and CC 3 X per day PLUS a couple caps of Eleutheros and my other supplements.Over 50 pills per day.

It is in pill form. I have noticed improvements so far. Was very fatigued first 4 days on it. I'm on day 10 and starting to feel better. My skin is clearer and my throat is looking better. I have a pretty resilient stomach fortunately and have not experienced any nausea. Some people do experience nausea though. www.curezone.org has dedicated forum to Humaworm.

I agree with this. I have read that it is much cheaper to encapsulate them yourself. I plan on doing this. Just purchased Green Dragon to immediately start something. 1st Chinese herbs is also a site to look at to buy in bulk pwder form if you do decide to encapsulate yourelf.

Why do you say that GD is "not all that great" ?

It's one of Buhner's top 6 recommended sources.

I just remember the taste was much weaker than my nuherbs powder and while on it I started relapsing. So it gave the impression that it was not a very potent brand. But i can't say that with certainty. Maybe it's good. But it's overpriced nonetheless. Those concerns, along with the price made it wholey unworthy for me

I think tinctures would probably be easier but worried they will taste bad and then I won't end up taking them. I didn't think about how many pills it would be per day though...good point.

I have always had sensitivity to taste...very picky eater all my life..and for me the tinctures weren't too bad.
I would put them all together in about 1/4 cup of water and down the hatch.

You can put them in pomegranate juice (per Buhner) and it has quite a strong taste and does a pretty good job masking the tincture taste.

But if you're not on a lot of supplements than the capsules may work for you.

I am a very picky eater too Girlie and super sensitive to taste but wondering if I could handle it now mixed with pomegranate juice...that's a great idea.

First I need to do a parasite cleanse so will give this Humaworm a try. I noticed on their website there is also a Humalyme...anyone ever tried that???
