There was a large Levine study a few years ago that implied this, I think. Sorry to hear it didn't have any immediate effect, it is possible that it only produces very significant effects (such as being able to exercise freely) in those people who are already fairly active (i.e. not taking rests to make it through the day, I had already got to this point thanks to other treatments which I have listed above when I started taking the skullcap). One way to test it would be to do whatever form of exercise/exertion produced full-on PEM before, and see if say 9g of Chinese skullcap does anything to affect this. Just to check, you made an infusion with the root, correct?
Yes, not boiling water but it was steaming.I let it in for more than 10'.Yeah I was thinking the same, working out and trying the max dose at the first signs that I'm gonna have PEM.PEM starts in 24 hours (or a bit more) after training but I have very minor symptoms way before that point, so usually I can tell it's gonna happen.
