Sara isn't this an anti-viral? I tried to take it, started really low 1 drop in a glass of water and drink 1/3 of a glass building up to 15drops a day is the recommended dosage, I got to about 2 drops a day but had a relapse shortly after starting it, never went back on it after that but don't think it caused the relapse.
Hope someone else has more useful info on it:)

Maryb I really don't know if it is an anti-viral, but I read in an interview with a CFS doc that it helps with muscle pain. I can't even remember her name.

I was on this a few years ago. I found it very hard to tolerate - took me months to get up to 12 drops a day. Didn't lead to any improvement.

I've taken it for Lyme and now switched to Cat's Claw tincture because of the cost. They have done nothing for the pain levels but have greatly reduced the number of spirochaetes in my blood as seen under a microscope.
