As far as I have read up on Clarkia
and it's ingredients I have found out that the Wormwood
is actually a poion that can kill you if you take too much. This is why you have to slowly increase your dose up to the right amount over several days. The side effects of Wormwood
are headach, nausea, dizziness, well heres the copyToxicity:
Large amounts of Wormwood
can be toxic to people, as well as worms.
The chemical Thujone (absinthol) that this herb contains, is addictive and can damage the central nervous system.
The United States FDA classifies the herb as "dangerous". It is thought to interact with the same brain receptors as does marijuana (cannabis sativa). Products flavored with wormwood must contain thujone-free extracts.
Rated slightly dangerous in many countries, particularly dangerous for children, persons over 55 years of age and those who take larger than appropriate quantities for extended periods of time.
Adverse Reactions, Side Effects or Overdose Symptoms:
Can cause insomnia, nightmares, vomiting.
Convulsions - Seek emergency treatment immediately.
Stupor - Seek emergency treatment immediately.
Trembling - Discontinue use and call a doctor when convenient.
I am all for getting rid of your worms but like it said on the Clarkia
site...."Proper use of Clarkia
is your own responsibility"
so please be careful!!! reduce your dosage until you no longer feel dizzy and then slowly add a couple of drops per day until you are up to the reccomended dosage.
