Thanks for your valuable work. I was wondering why you recommend so many herbs with magnesium stearate (trans fats). I know it is “just a little bit,” but that’s what they claim about the mercury in dental fillings and just about every other toxin out there. Maybe you could address this question for your audience.
Actually, what I prefer people to use are the organically grown or wildcrafted herbs. I suspect that what you are talking about are the formulated herbs in capsule or caplet form that herbal companies sell. When the book first came out, these were the only sources I knew of for, for example, knotweed root, so I recommended them. I now usually send people to greendragonbotanicals.com which sells combinations of the wildcrafted or organic herbs in capsule form.
