I am currently trying this protocol. It centers on taking somewhat large doses of cloves, wormwood, and black walnut hull extract. I'm actually doing this more to battle my MCS than CFS, as a know someone who obtained signigicant improvement of MCS from this protocol. But since the herbs themselves are rather strong and known to treat a variety of things I think my experience belongs here. I have a long history of not being able to tolerate protocols. I'm especially not a big fan of the tendency to claim that any negative reaction is "just detox". After all these years of listening to my body I feel like I can usually tell when something's good or bad for it, and whether negative symptoms are beneficial or not. So far, from what I can acertain, this protocol has been tolerable and resulted in detox reactions. I've been increasing at my own pace, so currently up to 40 drops walnut hull extract (which is about 1/2 tsp), 2 capsules wormwood and 3 capsules of cloves. Have to completely evaporate the alcohol out of the extract before taking it. Each time I increase the wormwood dosage I get quite severe cold symptoms that last for several hours and then "magically" vanish. Increasing the cloves results in a few hours of fatigue much more severe than is normal for me. Since begining this protocol about a week ago I suddenly only get 6 hours of sleep per night, though I am now experimenting with a way to remedy that side effect. I am also planning to get back on a probiotic to make sure I have enough good bacteria in my gut, since these herbs seem to basically be anti-everything. I don't subscribe to Hulda Clark's theories, but I know these herbs are used to treat multiple things (including candida) so I figure it's possible they might be beneficial somewhere, somehow. I'm going to try to get up to the target dosage and follow the protocol's chart from there but will stop if symptoms become intolerable or it doesn't feel that my body is responding well anymore. Has anyone else tried this protocol or these herbs? Anyone have thoughts on it?
