Bluejellybean, 7 drops is more than I can tolerate even. I am down to one drop a day. How long did it take you to get up to 7?
I've been on the herbs for about
5 weeks. I stayed at 1-3 drops for the first 7 days (I herxed very badly at 3 drops!), then got up to 5 and stayed at 5 for like 2 weeks b/c I felt better. I only recently bumped up to 7. Go slow!
Are you only taking the Houttuynia? I think it definitely helps to take it with the JK Plus and C.S.A. I know the Japanese Knotweed is supposed to help the other herbs work better, they all work synergistically.
The Burbur Pinella I had to buy my 2nd week b/c I was herxing so bad. It definitely does something for the nerve pain in my head... the first day I took it I had the weirdest sensation in my trigeminal nerve, deep in my head, it was like I could feel it vibrating, pulsating, and it felt like there was water running down the nerve. Then that went away. It's supposed to help clear a Herx by detoxing your liver and kidneys? I'm not really sure how it works, but it seems to help me so I would recommend it. I started with only 5 drops of the Burbur Pinella as needed.
My LLMD recommended the Benadryl, I definitely have some kind of histamine response so it quiets down the immune system? Though I've only taken it a few times when needed. So many pills and things to keep track of....
