Taking vitamin C with tinctures

by | Jan 8, 2012 | Columns, Healing Lyme, interactions, The Basics, tinctures/decoctions | 3 comments

Dear Stephen,
I mix my tinctures in about 4-8 ounces of water before I take them. Lately I’ve been adding the C-salt (effervescent vit C) powder. The vitamin C won’t neutralize the tinctures/herbs, correct?

Stephen’s response:
I don’t know but I would take them separately. I used to mix myself and it just seemed like something was amiss when I did so.

This protocol was incredible. After only a few weeks most of my symptoms were gone. After six months all my symptoms were gone… it has given me my life back.
