So I took the week off work since I have quite a few vacation days built up and it's Thanksgiving.
I figured I would take advantage of the days off to start Lyme herbs back up in full force.
This morning I started Japanese Knotweed, Houttuynia, and CSA (cryptolepis, side acuta and alchornia)
I did 10 drops of each in a little bit of water and drank it.
A few hours later, I have a headache and feel pretty out of it..
Is this normal when starting out this strong? I've taken these all in the past and didn't have too much of an issue with titrating up pretty quickly, but this seemed to aggravate my dizziness, and brain fog quite a bit.
I also didn't think that die off would hit quite this fast.
Let me know your thoughts! I am excited to get back into it. Hoping for better results this time around..
Even though I know better as I was warned about
this multiple times on this board, I will restart an herb at a higher dosage and get knocked back. It doesn't happen as much any more, but it use to. And then I do a *face palm* because I know I should have started back on a lower dosage.
One of my kids has been on A-BART many times previously in the past (some high dosage, some low dosage). I just started him back on 2 drops of this one, and wow - it completely knocked him back. I had to stop it because he wasn't functioning at all, and it's taken days for him to rebound from it.
I can NOT start on high dosages of any adrenal herbals, as it immediately causes a headache for me. I have to go up slow each time on those, even if I was previously high on them last month.
So, yes - this is common.
Nic - I see this as a good sign for you. If I recall correctly, you weren't reacting to much. For you to react like this, maybe you are on to something with these herbals for treating.
