Thank you both so much for the help! I will follow the protocol above, it sounds good, but I have a few more concerns - I hope its alright to ask you guys?
I did get those instructions with the flush - but I just can't find them anywhere - I think I must have thrown them away with the box by accident. ooops. Do you still have yours by any chance?
Also, I did start by just taking Chinese Bitters in the a.m.... but I took a whole tablespoon. And, alarmingly, I have to report that a few hours after taking my first dose - I started spotting and then bleeding! [I have PCOS, and I usually have a problem with uterine hemorrhaging and bleeding out of control (i once made it down to a hematocrit of 16!), so I really don't want to be having any additional irregular bleeding...] However, despite the bleeding, I feel, strangely, much better! I also had big BM which I think the stuff might have helped to bring on - which is really good because I am usually incredibly constipated..
So now i'm confused. (The bleeding has pretty much stopped now, btw) I don't want to stop taking the tinctures or bring the dose down if its really gonna help me - but has anyone ever reported irregular period behavior or instant onset of menses from this stuff? Should I just continue with the plan outlined above and see if the bleeding starts again? Any suggestions?
Again, thank you both so much for your help. I will contact Julia if things get too weird - but its good to get different opinions on these things.
