I laughed when I read your post because I am such a rank amateur it's not even funny when it comes to making my own herbal stuff. But I'll tell you how it went for me...
First, let me say that Dr. Schulze uses the BEST available herbs around, he is true to his word on that. I know because I've seen each herb by itself and tried it and compared them to his stuff. So making my own Formula #1, it was not as powerful as his and I also had no idea what the proportion of ingredients was in the recipe.
But did that stop me? Nooo! I got all the herbs, whirred the bigger ones around in my mini-food processor to get them into powder form, attempted to grind a few more in my mortar and pestle when that didn't work, gave up after my arm got sore. Then, the fun part: I got this little contraption and some empty vegan gelcaps to put my concoction in pill form. I dutifully read the instructions, but let me tell you I am *not* a master pill maker! I had about a 40-60 percent error rate at first, got #1 powder EVERYWHERE, and in fact I think I inhaled more of the fine powder than I got squished into the little pill capsules. I should have taken pictures - it was hilarious. I HAVE made the #2 myself, and that is easier to make and very close to matches up with Dr. S's formula.
Anyway, here is the list of ingredients I used, and this list was taken from Dr. Schulze 's listing of formula contents for Formula #1. I see no need to refine his ingredients because I believe his 20 plus years experience with dying patients and his refinements are the best they can be.
Largest ingredient first, in decending order:
Cape Aloe Leaf
Senna leaves and pods
Cascara sagrada aged bark
garlic bulb (I actually used quite a bit of this after reading about garlic)
african bird pepper (not something they really carry at my store so I wasn't able to include it - I mean, african bird pepper?! Where the heck do you find that? Sure, it's next to the tube socks and flashlights, aisle 12 - ha ha)
Hope that helps - let me know how it goes!
P.S. re: #2: Dr. S mentions that this stuff removes heavy metals from your system that sits in your bowels and is excellent to have around for emergency use because it really vacuums toxins (e.g. radiation, bad bacteria) out of your system. (He also says you can live on Superfood), but I want to keep #2 around in case I ever get another stomach bug or food poisoning. So far, I haven't had to bust it out and the way my plumbijng is working, it looks like I won't have to.
