In late May my ND gave me a tincture that I took a spoonful-ish twice a day on an empty stomach: glycyrrhiza glabra 90ml astragalus membranosus 250ml codonopsis pilosula 78ml eleuthrococcus senticsosus 82ml It worked great! I felt less sick, had more energy, worked up to walking an hour a day during the next 3 weeks then crashed - I have not felt as well since. Just over 3 weeks ago I stopped taking the tincture. I had read a little bit that pulsing may be more helpful. My intent was to stop for 1 month, but on Sunday I was feeling particularly fatigued so decided to start up with the tincture again (so had a 3 week break). I'm already feeling better. If I'm to take a pulsing approach, what approximate schedule would be most helpful? I'm thinking 4 days on / 4 days off. (I know from my triathlon training days that it takes my body about 4 days to recover from a hard workout before its ready for another hard workout. Flawed thinking no doubt to apply it to tincture.) Experience / thoughts / insights?
