Dear Stephen,
Do any of these herbs in your core protocol cause issues for those of us who suffer from hypoglycemia? I just started knotweed, andrographis, cat’s claw, sarsparilla, and dandelion and I want to make sure that some of these symptoms are herxes and not blood sugar/hypoglycemic issues. Have you come across herbs that can alter blood sugar in a negative way? I’m using the herbs from greendragonbotanicals.com – no binders, fillers, additives, so it’s not the capsule/tablet.


Stephen’s response:
Sarsaparilla can sometimes cause blood sugar fluctuations. So, just don’t use that one. Other than that, I don’t remember any hypoglycemia problems associated with these herbs but you might re-read the book and check closely for that side effect. My own experience with being hypoglycemic was that a lot of things tended to set it off, even if they were not known for doing so.
Stephen
