I'm thinking of trying a product that has grapefruit seed extract in it. It is combined with....

Sweet Wormwood
Tribulus terrestris
Magnesium caprylate
Berberine Sulfate
Barberry
Bearberry
Black Walnut


This product also seems that it would be good for candida and parasites. The amount of grapefruit seed extract in it is 200mg. What is the proper dosage for busting cysts? The only posts I've been able to find on this tells how many drops but this product is not in liquid form. Does anyone know how many mg is the proper dose for cyst busting?
Thanks!

I don't think anyone knows, as there have been no studies done on this, to my knowledge. It is experimental.

In my personal experience, GSE does bust some cysts. I use muscle testing to determine dosages for supplements that don't have good science behind them.

Most people I know can tolerate 2-4 drops a day. I have no idea how this translates into mg. Sounds like a great candida and parasite supplement.

That sounds like a very interesting product - what name does it go by? I have used GSE very successfully. 10 drops a day - work up slowly.

I had a reaction to GSE and doxy combo. My LLMD forgot the part about work up slowly. I have the liquid Nutribiotic, and she suggested 10 drops, 3 times a day (not a good idea). It should have been 2 drops 3 x a day to start.

She also recommended the same doseage in caps, at 125. So, start with 1/5 of a capsule and work up?

She has 15 patients on the 125 caps, no problem. My spleen and kidneys hurt really bad.

Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone! The product is GI-Microb X by Designs for Health. They also have a lot of other products that I've been considering like Inflammatone and Immunitone. I have no affiliation w/this company by the way. my Chiropractor recommends them.
