The more you take Plant Medicines, the less you need them. (With Pharmaceuticals, it appears the more you take, the more you need)
General dosing: Squeeze the bulb and let go to draw the liquid into the dropper. That is one dose. Take one dose in the morning and evening.
If you have an acute need, like a cold, flare up of allergies, or day 1 of menstrual cramping, use Acute Dosing: take five to ten DROPs, not droppers, every 1-3 hours, depending on the intensity of the symptom.
All medicines taste BAD, as they are made of bark, roots and leaves we ordinarily wouldn't eat. They are bitter, and some worse than others. You can lessen the taste by diluting in water or juice, or you could purchase capsules and squirt a dose in the capsule, and then swallow without tasting it at all. I have gotten used to bitter, as have most of my patients and family, so we just squirt the dropper in the mouth and wash it down with a sip of water.
