How long does it take for an herbal formula to work?
When taken under the tongue many people notice an initial effect within minutes or hours. Noticeable effects may increase over a month or two of use. Generally, herbs are not a quick fix like prescription drugs. They are not meant to act like a band-aid to relieve symptoms, but to support the body’s natural ability to heal. Healthy lifestyle habits, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, a nutritious diet metabolism can all affect results.
How will I know if the herbal formula is working?
Take a look at the uses of the formula and the effects of its ingredients listed on our website. Then consider if you have noticed any of the expected results. Sometimes the results are obvious and sometimes they are more subtle.
Can I take more than one formula at the same time?
Dr. Baritz’s herbal formulas can be taken individually or together. Taking more than one formula at the same time may increase effectiveness due to the power of synergy.
Do the herbal formulas contain alcohol?
There is a rich history of herbal prescribing dating back to prehistoric times. In attempts to extract the essence of herbs it was discovered that an effective method was to soak herbs in an alcoholic liquid like wine. This way the healing properties of the plant were minimally affected during the extraction process and the alcohol acted as a preservative so herbals could be conveniently transported and stored. The alcohol content of Dr. Baritz herbal formulas is 20-30%.
What is the recommended adult dosage?
There are individual variations on how people respond to herbs and an individual’s needs may change over time. For that reason, the dose ranges from 1 dropperful once a day to 3 dropperfuls three times a day. Many people start with 2 dropperfuls twice a day and adjust as needed.
What is the recommended dose for children?
Children over 12 years old are usually given an adult dose. For children 12 years or less, the herbal dose is calculated based on body weight.
Weight in pounds ÷ 150 × Adult dose = Child’s dose
For example: a 75-pound child and an adult dose of 4 dropperfuls (2 dropperfuls 2x/day)
70lbs ÷ 150 = 0.5 × 4 dropperfuls (adult dose) = 2 dropperfuls (child’s dose)
Variations in color, taste, and precipitation of solids
Our liquid herbs are minimally processed to preserve delicate herbal properties. There may be some variation in color or taste and precipitation of solids may occur. This does not affect potency.
