When Too Much Is Too Much

“The brick” weighed 2 pounds, offered just a half-hour of talk time for every recharging and sold for $3,995. And it didn’t do well in the toilet either.

For reasons that don’t need exploring at this juncture, I have had a very anxiety- producing week which included sharing a bathroom with my husband. The culmination of this week long stress-fest came last evening when my cell phone, i.e. my life sustaining umbilical cord to the business world, went for a swim in the toilet. *

Going to bed last night went so-so, but after dreaming of zombie attacks, I found myself wide awake at 3:00 a.m. One piece of feedback I often get from fans of our Deep Sleeper formula is how much they love that when you wake up at 3:00 a.m. and can’t fall back asleep, they can take a dose, fall back asleep but still wake refreshed at 7:00 a.m. without that obnoxious hang-over feeling often associated with other seep aids.

I decided that I needed Deep Sleeper. But where my decision making powers were flawed were in my decision about how much Deep Sleeper I needed. I concluded that since I was really, really, really anxious about life, the universe and everything, the obvious course of action was to take triple the recommended dose- the recommended dose on the label is 20 – 40 drops, about ½ to 1 full dropper, and I took 3 full droppers. I fell back asleep, that much is true. And at 8:00 a.m. I successfully dragged myself out of bed, that much is also true. But let me also tell you, this morning I feel exactly like I feel when I have taken too much Benadryl. I could easily crawl back into bed and sleep for a few more hours, my thinking is sluggish at best, and I don’t have the slightest idea where my towel is.

So despite what the thinly veiled spammers are always trying to tell me when they post things like

Herbal remedies take a long time to effect but at least they are way safer than conventional drugs

(in this case the herbal remedy took effect very quickly)

the thing that i like about herbal products is that they are readily available and does not have bad side …

(I suspect the author of this spam intended to say bad side effects, and yes, sometimes they do. See the quality of this blog post as an example.)

In general, I always advise people that when it comes to dosing with Herbalogic or any herbal products, start small and work up. The goal is to use the lowest possible dose that produces a therapeutic effect. Really good advise that I will endeavor to follow in the future.

*After spending quality time under the hair dryer and being left apart overnight, my cell phone seems to be doing better, thank you for asking.
