Never take TONIC herbs (many immune herbs & adaptogens are tonics eg ginseng, astragalus, siberian ginseng, dong quai, ashwagandha) during acute illness. From a traditional medicine perspective, tonics will drive an illness deeper into the body and nourish the strength of the virus.
This is why we have suggested preventative immune tonics, switching to herbs that are diaphoretic (boost fever response), aromatically move dampness and phlegm, and have an outward moving action (releasing the exterior) during infection.
Not suitable to take with immunosuppressant medication (Astragalus).
Not suitable for breastfeeding (Elecampane).
Hyssop not suitable in pregnancy.
Not recommended for pregnancy (White Horehound & Andrographis).
Licorice is not suitable for long-term use in high blood pressure, kidney disease or congestive heart failure. This blend contains 5% licorice only.
Yellow Dock is not suitable if you have bowel obstruction.
