I’ve been fighting shingles now for 6 weeks and I’m still suffering from pain where the shingles blisters were located. I started 15 billion probiotics midway thru this and was feeling better. I was taking 5 billion 3 times a day. A friend coaxed me to bump it up to 20 billion. So I did this and by the 3rd day I had a rash all over my head. I’ve since stopped and the rash has gone away. I really want to go back on it, but now I’m stuck with 20 billion capsules. Any ideas on breaking these capsules in half to take half in the morning then again at night? Or should I wait til after this shingle pain goes away? I’m sure I’m in toxic overload with having fibromyalgia and type 2 diabetes. What would u suggest I do? Thank you.
It is possible that some people, for reasons unknown, just can't tolerate Noni juice. Advocates of Morinda citrifolia place these folks in the minority and continue to focus on the health benefits of the drink. Critics warn that these side effects are too common and too severe for consumers to continue buying and consuming Noni juice.
Noni juice is lauded by some as a miracle drink, and shunned by others as hazardous poison. Anecdotal evidence is all we have at this point to determine the value of Noni juice as a medicinal supplement. As with all herbal medicines, the consumer is pretty much "on his own" until medical science has more information to share about the usefulness and safety of this controversial product.
“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”
