Offers a tonic effect to the circulatory system. Can be used whenever desired or as a preventative.
Use 5-15 drops, 1-2 dropperfuls or as much as a teaspoon at a time. Dose frequency could be 1-3 times or several times a day as desired. Generally best to use large, frequent doses in acute situations. Sometimes when used in advance, results are better. When more comfort is achieved or the situation is less severe, doses can be smaller and less frequent. After several months of use, take a break. If necessary, change to a different set of herbs. Do not use herbal products to replace necessary care by a qualified physician.
