- Review reports about herbs or disease to see what
the scientist say, then make an informed decision.
I never take what the marketer or liable says without
comparing it to scientific research. This site contains
a lot of such research.
- I muscle test them before I buy them, even if it
from an online store, then I test them each time before
I ingest them.
- I am careful in taking multiple items:
- Combining herbs can increase the the power of
the group more than individually. For example
if you take 5 separate herbs and each container
recommends you take one capsule a day for a safe
dosage the combined group may be much stronger,
and can exceed what is safe.
- Not all combinations (even products sold) of
herbs are compatible; they may conflict or they
may have similar chemistry that multiplies the
- I have learned to listen to my body: After taking
an item, do I get a sluggish brain, slower thinking,
aches or pains I did not have before? This may be
bad, or it may be good, however learning to feel what
my body is experiencing is essential. Some times nutrition
and even drugs can cause a reaction that increases
problems, but it may not mean it is bad. see
- I have found that the most important thing for me
is giving my body a rest period. Herbs are powerful
and can cause the dislodging of toxins that the liver
cannot remove as fast as they are dislodged. This
can overload the liver and organs and make one sick.

When I take a set of herbs or treat a condition, I
take them for four days and then give my body three
days without any herbs to adjust and catch up.
- Since the liver's function is so important and since
Turmeric is reported by scientist to help the liver,
I take Turmeric anytime I take a series of nutrition
to help boost the liver's ability to process any toxins.
- I take lots of pure water every day, but especially
when taking nutrition products. See
- I have learned that I cannot expect any nutrition
to be effective if I do not stop ingesting negative
foods. For example foods with MSG
or excitotoxins not only make me sick, but negate
any nutrition I take. Diet coke is especially toxic
to me even though I crave and love it. I muscle test
foods to see if they are harmful for me, for example
I am Celiac and wheat and bread products are very
harmful. No amount of herbs or supplements can offset
the harm wheat does to a person with Celiac.
- I have studied how to muscle test and I use it before
I purchase or ingest any nutrition. Muscle testing
may not provide 100% accurate answer, but it is better
than buying or using nutrition products blindly. See
Many say herbs are not good
and that they are bad for us. In some ways they are
right because too many herboligist over use and combine
too many compounds with too much potency.
Herbs are very powerful and can cause great harm if
not used wisely.
Too often supplements with multiple herbs are combined
without regard for their affect on the other herbs and
the combinations can conflict with each other or cause
Few supplement manufacturers take into consideration
that the combination of multiple herbs synergyses. This
synergy action results in more power than if the herb
was taken separately. The same action occurs when ingesting
multiple herbs or supplements at the same time.
To much or too many supplements, herbs or vitamins
can result in too much power and overload the liver
and kidneys. The result can lead to health problems,
liver or kidney failures. It can also affect the mind
and cause mental issues.
Too often nutritionist wrongfully teach if an herb
helps, then more of it is good.
That can be very dangerous and harmful, It is like
eating one green apple then saying it did not hurt me
so I can eat a dozen, then get a stomach ache. Herbs
should not be used more than the safe dosage.
Knowing what is a safe dosage can be a problem because
everyone reacts differently. What is safe yesterday
or for you or someone else may not be good for you today.
Even doctors have this problem and will say take this
prescription and let me know if you have any problems.
That is because everyone reacts differently to a drug
or herb. Just because it helped someone else does not
mean it will work for you. This is one reason I do not
like testimonials about supplements.
