Hubby has been taking rhodiola now for a month, 1 per day for 2 weeks then 2 per day. He is doing very well this winter considering usually winter is when he falls to pieces. He is better than he has been for 5 winters! He is laughing, proactively doing things, and is interested in things.
The rhodiola experiment is being run at the same time as the cinnamon x 2 tsp per day and ambroxol 60mg x 2 per day.
Also currently Hardys daily essential nutrients with added vitamers, Red light helmet, apolloneuro stress device, bright light therapy, fish oil, ubiquinol, krill oil , hemp seed oil, pantethine, biotin, citrus bioflavonoids, vitamin c liposomal, lithium orotate low dose, glutathione, citicoline, uridine, inositol, b2, b3, melatonin, mucuna,mannitol, and restore gold. Digestive enzymes. Bottled water with high Silica.
A few months ago he got off the last minute trace of the sertraline and mirtazapine which has taken a couple of years tapering very slowly.
He is taking 3 x 62.5 madopar and 1/4 Kemadrin x 2 per day. These are the only pharmaceuticals he is on now.
Main problem now is his shoulder stiffness and lack of dexterity in his right hand and arms not swinging.
He almost never complains of feeling fluey any more.
Face is smiling again
PD odour fixed
Urine frequency fixed
Greatly improved anxiety but a little tremor eg watching exciting sport
Rosacea, acne gone
Energy levels much improved
Sleeping easily, no day sleeps now.
Ps for anxiety he now uses gaba gummies on the rare occasion he needs it. He has previously had clonazapam and was using 1/4 if needed but has been able to do without that for a few months now.
Please note if you intend to take rhodiola rosea it may interact and exacerbate side effects of antidepressants so talk to doctor first.
