Finally the fun part

Below are all the herbs I take for my health condition. I have mixed all of these herbs together at some point and time. Whats important to note here is that I take a pinch or a hint of each herb in a smoothie. So for example if the daily dose of  Olive leaf is a teaspoon per day I take a teaspoon per month. Because I take 30 herbs and I take less than a teaspoon per day. So I buy my herbs in a powdered form either buy the bundle with 10-20 herbs in a kit or I buy herbs by the pound and always in a powdered form. 
I don’t take supplements I don’t need to The herbs and the living fruits and vegtables cover the gammit of balanced health.

I am now a long distance runner and triathlete so my herbal protocal has changed over time. I will list the herbs in the order I started them and I added and deleted over time. To give you a better visual if I had every herb below in a powdered form in a 1 pound bag , I would take a teaspoon of each herb drop that in a bowl and mix them all up then I would take a teaspoon of that or less and add that teaspoon into my blender with my smoothie of the day. So in a MG form we would be in the neigborhood of like 35mg of each herb and that’s  just a guess but its nowhere near 500mg per day. I do that because if my body doesn’t want it I can easly work it out VS “I think I am going to be sick.”

I always have a base and that base is glyconutrients (you can find more about them on my How To Treat Lyme Page) Glyco’s is what I started with day one and I was better day one so we don’t fix what aint broke they are safe and you can take them long term. Herbs, like all things in life you can not take daily forever they will eventually start working agaisnt you so you must always mix up your herbal blends and stop one protocol and go with another set.  That’s why I am a big fan of just buying herbal powders  by the pound and letting my body tell me what it wants and needs.  As you will read this list you will say good lord does he really take all of these and the answer is yes. I have never taken evryone of these herbs at the same time all together but I would and I would still be fine because I am OK with each herb and it would be a pinch of each herb if I did something like 3-10 MG of each herb. I have taken just about every herb on this list at the same time, in the same week or month yes for sure I have done that.  When I look at this list of herbs I literally say to myself yeah nothing could beat that ……..nothing. Its no wonder I am running half marathons most people on the planet would never bother themselves to take their health or life this serously. Most herbalist will tell you not to take herbs like that that herbs are to be used one or two at a time and allow the herbs to slowly over time rebalnce you…..Thats all well and good but they don’t have LYME.  If you have LYME you have to kill it  Remove it heal it protect it and repeat daily all in one teaspoon not one category per month which is what I find most people doing detox one month kill one month….yeah that’s a joke.  As Dr. Phil would say “hows that working for ya”
