Quote from: NiankhSekhmet
I won't lecture you overmuch, Phoenix. I, too, am very glad you are alive, but I will say this, next time when you are going to do any sort of emenagoguic herbal nudge to your reproductive system, make sure you have a knowlegeable herbalist supervising you.


Agreed.  I'm not directing this at you, Phoenix, but it always amazes me when people say they don't trust Western Medicine or allopathic physicians, but then are willing to ingest whatever the salesperson at GNC tells them to.  Physicians have 4 years of medical school and then at least 3 years of residency.  You don't even have to have any sort of degree to get a job working retail at GNC.

But I also have to say boo on your doc for not telling you specifically how much you should take.  Telling you a vague "take more than it says on the bottle" is just a recipe for disaster.

I'm glad you're okay.

Very glad your okay, Phoenix.  I agree with doing a thank you to netjer in general, but I am getting the impression that Anpu was guarding you.  

Blessings for your continued good health.

     long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal
     ever dared to dream before.

Sounds to me like Sekhmet and Serqet have your back Phoenix.

*hugs* Thank you guys for the well wishes! The doctor didn't specifically tell me how much more take, to be honest. I was told that I needed to go over the recommended dosage because the recommended dosage is intended to curb the symptoms of menopause and in those small amounts, it won't induce a cycle.

Apparently, he had told me to call him and tell him how many milligrams the cohosh I got were, but I don't recall him telling me that at all.

I'm going to do a round of offerings tonight with a general thank you to Netjer with separate offerings to Sekhmet, Serqet and Yinepu. At this point at least, I do know that Yinepu had something to do with it since when I saw Him when doing meditation the other night and He's usually had something to do with saving my butt since I was seven.

I have most certainly learned my lesson and Netjer willing, my liver will be cool beans too which I'll find out for sure next week.

Em hotep, Phoenix,

I strongly agree with what Kai-Imakhu Niankh said.  I happen to take black cohosh myself, but it's in a carefully-formulated tincture with other herbs compounded by a certified RN naturopath.

I'm very glad you escaped serious consequences.  Dua Sekhmet!

Senebty,

Dua Netjer that you are safe! :)

I had another piece of advice to add: Always check with your doctor (or a pharmacist) to see whether a supplement or herb will interact with any prescription medications you are on. My doctor once suggested St. Johns Wort for depression, but advised me to check with the pharmacist. I'm glad I did; it would have interacted badly with an anticonvulsant that I take.

Senebty!

Never ever ever EVER trust GNC. (Or at least I don't).  I was using less than 1/2 the recommended dose of what was supposed to be a "safe" way to stay "energized" while exercising.

I went into cardiac arrest and now have an ICD.  Most people, in my experience, that work in most places like GNC have little to NO real knowledge of herbs or what they are supposed to do or how much is safe or unsafe.

Very glad you are still alive and with us today!

Oh, thank goodness.  You'd be surprised how hard it is to find a "Sorry About Your Liver" greeting card :(

I will second (third?) that I avoid GNC.  Besides, they always make me feel like an alien when I walk in there anyway.

I lol'd in real life!

Yeeeeah, I've totally learned my lesson about GNC in the process of totally learning my lesson about dosing amounts and apparently not zoning out on the doctor. As much as I'd like to see the Beautiful West, I can stand to wait another 60 years =D

Also, Sekhmet gave me 'stern talking to' during meditation lol. I feel like I've been grounded.

Lol, Phoenix, I know the feeling...Aset likes to do this to me in a manner of speaking..."You will get no huggy-happies until you listen to what I'm sayin' girly"

Glad to know you are OK, dua Sekhmet. I've ben warned about trusting clerks at herb & vitamin stores (not just GNC) because of the whole "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" factor. I get my supplements from a Chiropractor, and I am lucky enough to have one who is wary about reccommending the more dangerous ones. Not just with herbs, but there are a lot of supplements out there that are actually hormones (5-DHEA and melatonin spring to mind,) taking those recklessley will mess up your system, too!
