How do I know which herb is right for me?
We suggest that you seek out an acupuncturist who is able to diagnosis you properly. This way you will be able to obtain the herbs or formula which is specific to your body needs. We are all different, if we were all the same, then there would be only one heart medication, one diabetic pill and only one depression tablet. Though things would be much simpler, one size (one herb) does not fit all. We have a unique body, and we must make an effort to find out what works for our body. Let me give you an example. When I first start this business I worked long hours, and many sleepless nights. A representative came in for a visit and I told her about the issues. She said, oh easy peasy, try Ginseng. She gave me a large sample and the next day first thing in the morning I tried it, with food as she suggested. Bad, Bad, Idea! I took a full dose, did not start with a small about and work up to a full dose and what happen? I had, headache, loose bowels and was not able to go back to work for 5 days. It was absolutely the wrong herb for me. Yet Ginseng is touted as an energizing herb. You must know your body type, and it's special requirements. If you must, review double blind studies to help you figure out what you need. Review solid facts, not .....Oh this did wonders for me... and most of all look for reliable sources. Though I understand we are in the business so we see and hear a lot, there is really a lot of "Crap" out there. Untrue, statements that people make up just to swindle money out of you. So, please do your homework!
