I saw another’s question to you about loss of taste while on the protocol. I have read your book and have been taking the knotweed, andrographis, and cat’s claw. One month after starting the herbs I lost all taste over a period of three days, but I retained some sense of smell. However, I have been feeling so much better after taking the herbs even for this short time that I do not wish to stop any of them. Even objective opinions from others are that I seem much healthier and energetic after having started the protocol, to the extent that people who did not know I was taking anything asked if I had had some type of treatment!
This happens sometimes, no one really knows why. I suspect the knotweed is the main culprit. There does not seem to be any long term problems accruing from that loss of taste but it is a rare response to the herb and there is not much in the literature about it.
