I recently bought Tabashir Bamboo capsules ( 150mg ), and have been taking 4 a day ( 2 evening and 2 morning) since Wednesday 7th September 2016. I have suffered bad dreams on two occasions since then, not usual for, and I would like to hear your thoughts on possible side effects. There was no guide notes when these capsules arrived. The capsules came from Swiss Healthe.
I shall refrain from taking them till I hear from you. Thank you John Peters.

John Peters. Firstly, we would want to know what are you taking these capsules for ? What is the exact problem for which you had to buy the capsules ? And why 4 capsules in a day ? Are you taking these on a prescription ? Or, on your own ? Reduce the dosage to 2 capsules in a day. One in the morning and one in the evening. Write back to us again and mention the other symptoms also, if you have noticed any after taking these capsules.

You may start with Bamboo silica capsules. This will take care of your Nails and Hair. Consume it for a month. For Osteoporosis, Take Dandelion tea everyday. Include Tomato in your daily diet. Also, you may take Boswelia capsule, have 1 every day for 1 month.

Why do you wish to take this tea. I do not think there are any side effects of this herb, unless you are not taking and medication ( for some disease ) that may interact with it. If you are not taking any drugs and you wish to cure a specific disease with this herb, then you may.
It is safe. A very effective herb for Skin and Hair Care.

Yes, your mother may eat Vanshlochan capsules for a month.
For your bones, take Winged Treebine ( Hadjod ) for 20 days. also, then you may take Boswellia capsules daily for a month. These can help. Drink a tea prepared by Dandelion leaves every day, one cup. This will strengthen your bones.

I'm 20years old female. I have been eating clay, slate pencil, wall plaster from last few years! I can't resist myself from eating it if i see it..
I was born normal & healthy & fair .. not extra fat or flabby!
I'm allergic to eggs (can't digest) so i don't eat it! .. i drink milk but not really have any cravings for it! I eat sweets or any sweet item occasionally, Don't have a sweet tooth! And i didn't suffer from tonsils or dysentery!
I have recently got two packets of tabasheer from Chandini chowk! How should i consume it?

Push. No, please you can not take Tabasheer for more than a month. As, the prolonged use of this herb may cause other diseases like deficiency of Vitamin B in the body. If you take it for a long time, the excessive Silica will get deposited in your body and this may cause dehydration. Why do you consume this herb ( Tabasheer ) ?

Kim. Okay. Thank you so much for sharing the symptoms. So, what is the disease then ?
You only have these cravings , that's it ? Is there any disorder that you are suffering from. As per my study, the remedy for you is Calc carb. But I need to know your physical symptoms, mental symptoms and the disease before confirming the dosage of the medicine.

Try quitting it. Whenever you have craving for it, put fruit candies in your mouth. Or you may try a chewing gum. The only way to overcome any addiction is YOUR WILL POWER. It should not be taken for a long time. So, better try now.
