Hi, Daisey, Judy,
Two per dose for adults, thirty minutes before eating, or 2 hours after.
Doses about 12 hours apart...the idea is to have a steady flow of the herbals into your system. The time period can be as little as 8 hours between two doses, if needed...but, generally, the 12 hours work best.
I sure do remember how I started! I was the #1 chicken around here!
Would you believe 1/4 of a capsule per dose?! For FOUR doses! That's when I found I didn't mind it sprinkled in a little hot/warm water, as a toddy. (I sip most of my water, warm, as though it were tea...refreshing.)
And Humaworm worked, even in a tiny dose. But, I also learned that the combination of herbs feels kind of 'buffered', powerful, but NOT overly 'strong'...does that make sense?
I would have done even better if I had taken the full two caps each dose, right from the beginning. Chicken, or not.
Be sure you are regular in the bathroom, first, and drink lots and lots of water. (You could have an enema kit ready, just in case. Check the inside of an old enema bottle. Sometimes an old bag, or hose, can have black stuff inside.) An enema can make a great difference in how you feel, if you have slowed down from at least one BM per day.
I know NOTHING about childrens' dosages, so I can't help you there. It won't hurt for you to start the the children a day or two later, when you hear from someone who knows the correct dosages for little ones.
A fine video, given in the Energy Healing forum.
I just watched it for the fifth time, last night. There's something about it, beyond the science. Maybe it's the relaxation. Very soothing.
Try the kelp...lots of minerals...and iodine. I munch a leaf or two with a meal.
Grow stuff...even if it is just sprouting mung beans in a jar on your kitchen counter. Living food is great for the enzymes.
A pal used to take a salt shaker into her little garden, pick a sun-warmed rosy tomato, brush it off on her jeans, and munch. Ambrosia! Dessert!
Fresh pineapple and fresh papaya, together, are very complete in digestive enzymes, I read, and help in the bathroom, too, I know.
Hawaiian papaya has been genetically modified, someone said. Sigh.
I really like Bio-K as a probiotic. It tastes like a fine buttermilk. You might want to wait until your thirty days are up, because Humaworm just blasts it. Your digestive enzymes come from food all the while, I believe, and rebuild when the thirty days are up.
A clay footbath might help with detox, I think.
I'm reading all I can about salt baths (see the Salt forum), before I try one.
They sound so good, but I want to know more, first, just in case.
Humaworm isn't a 'magic bullet', nor a 'pill'...it is a carefully-planned, gentle cleansing process. You'll see.
Lots of luck, everyone!
