This all depends on what herbs or formulas you are taking. The tonic herbs can be taken on a daily basis for an extended period of time and will not give you any negative side effects when taken in suggested and reasonable doses. However, if you are taking an herb or formula that is designed to correct an imbalance in your body, then you only need to take that herb or formula until you feel balanced again. For the tonic herbs, it can also be a good idea to change them up every so often to give your body a break. Whether that is every three months or six months will depend on the individual. If you listen to your body, you should be able to determine when it is time to take a break.
Tonic herbs are a super-food class of herbs that can be taken on a daily basis for the rest of your life for cultivating health and longevity. Just like you eat food every to nourish your day to day energy, you can take herbs every day to super charge your organ systems to transform you life into what you want it to be.
We generally recommend taking your herbal program for 100 days to give them a chance to make a great difference in you health.
That being said, the herbs will start to work as soon as you take your first dosage. In addition, it also depends the reason you are taking your herbs.
For instance, Bupleurum & Dragon Bone is a formula that will provide relief from stress on its first dosage.
But, if your Jing (Kidney/Adrenal) has become exhausted due to years of stress, it will take a few months to adequately replenish all that lost energy. That typically does not happen overnight.
There is one other phenomenon that people experience with herbs as well. When you initially take them, you may feel a real boost in energy but after a few months the herbs don't seem to give you the same boost.
However, when you go off the herbs, you may then notice a decrease in energy and realize you had just become used to your new baseline of greater energy.
It is similar to riding in a car. When the car first accelerates from 0-60, passengers feel the acceleration of being pushed back into the seats, but when the car is cruising along at 60 mph, there is no real feeling of going fast.
It can be the same with herbs. You will increase your levels of energy, and that will become the new normal feeling for you and you will forget what it was like before you took the herbs.
We generally recommend taking the herbs on an empty stomach as they are concentrated super foods and don't need to be taken with food in order to be assimilated.
It is totally fine to take them with food if it the most convenient way for you to take them.
You can also add them to smoothies and shakes as well.
If you are currently taking medicine for any condition, please consult with your doctor before embarking on any herb program. If your doctor gives you the okay to take herbs, you generally want to take your herbs and medicine at least on hour apart from each other. If you have specific question, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Can I take my herbs with other herbs?
You can add the powdered herbs to your smoothies, shakes, or teas. Or, simply add to hot, warm, or room temperature water, mix well and enjoy!
Adding them to hot water will not effect the efficacy of herbs.
