Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

When I walked through your page, I had some other questions. If you do not have the time or the desire to answer, I think I would understand. So if I could ask the following questions:

  1. Is it reasonable to divide the daily dose of slices of ginseng in half? So let's say it would be a dose of two slices per day and I would use it as follows, 1 slice in tea in the morning (with the one that it sleeps after eating) and 1 slice in the afternoon after returning from work. Or is it more effective to give each morning at once?
  2. What would you say to the plan that even if I do not feel the effect of Ginseng Liang within 2 weeks, I would continue to use it in a dose, say, 2-3 slices a day for 3 months, followed by a pause. I would like to do so because, if I understand correctly, with this use, the level of ginsenosides in the body should gradually increase and work more and more intensively until the level at which my body should react should have occurred if after 3 months Will react at all. Plus, if I understand correctly, part of the effects of ginseng is manifested not only on a certain level (and sensitivity) of ginsenosides in the body, but only the time they need to do what they have.
  3. I am currently in the phase of phasing out antidepressants, in agreement with my doctor, taking them for about 1.5 months, instead of recommending piracetam pills, and I wonder if they could be unable to take antidepressants and use the other powders Something if it's not a contraindication of those ginseng powders. Overall, I am not inclined to address my problems through psychopharmaceuticals, but the "natural" path has not brought me a rustic result yet, so I tried it with a psychiatrist with pills, but even the way I did not see for me probably does not lead me.
  4. I was intrigued by the fact that you know about the place of rootstocks and so if possible, I would have a serious interest in using their experience, both in the field of herbs and in terms of the "curse" (if I did not do the ginseng). If you would like to recommend someone to the TCM in the vicinity of Bratislava.
  5. Finally, my last question is a bit of another jar, I consume fruit-vegetable juices I do on a juicer that has stainless blades. Maybe you know where I'm heading - is it possible that contact with juices and fruit pulp with metals causes them to be degraded? Or is it just another misleading information? If it makes sense, it is specifically carrots, cabbage, pepper, red beet (cvikle) and white grape juice.


I like to receive letters from attentive readers like you who understand what I'm saying. On the other hand, I am very sorry to admit that I have no way to help. You, if I understand correctly, suffer from living in the society we all know well. You should "go to self-defense against our civilization by private cynicism," as he reveals to himself in his commentary on the self-burning of Zdeněk Adamce ThDr. Dedenko Kratochvil, Dr. , to whom I leave this word in this matter.

To Depression itself and other questions:

  1. Dividing the dose in half does not affect the effect. By using it at once, you will save time by dividing it into two doses to enjoy the ginseng taste twice.
  2. In terms of pharmacokinetics, the ginseng content will reach equilibrium concentrations over 3-4 days, not months. It is therefore not a purely cumulative substance such as lead or warfarin. Longer use is advisable because ginseng influences long-term physiological processes . Otherwise, your plan of use is correct, also because ...
  3. ... ginseng perhaps to some extent facilitates withdrawal from addictive substances . Your doctor has done a good job of taking antidepressants after a relatively short time. Synthetic psychopharmacs are on average dangerous enough, but piracetam is one of those who have a very good reputation. I will not betray you from piracetam, and I would sometimes want to try it.
  4. I can not help looking for a doctor, but it is practically certain that there is at least one in Bratislava. As for folk healing, it is found everywhere because it is demanded, but in some areas it simply has more backgrounds. For example, Czechs tend to bot in much more than the Slovaks. (I intentionally omit Moravia, because it is the most important one and it affects both the Czech Republic and partly the Slovak Republic.) In Europe, maybe only the Dutch can measure the botany in Bohemia. While academic botany blooms in universities, traditional herbalism is for some reason the strongest in the White Carpathian region, from Myjavy to Kysuce. In this area, a certain level of knowledge of healing is common in the population, but not everyone has the same talent, knowledge and devotion to tradition. No lists exist (or you will find those less gifted there). That particular mention of you in the answer you are talking about is just such an exception that confirms the rule. You can ask, or you can try to ask carefully about the parish, the elders will know them. Unlike the TCM, this tradition is not so canonized, but its wealth was comparable, and there was, for example, the moxibus , which today we are mistaken for typical Chinese. Besides herbs, it works mainly with water and wax. It would be tempting to theorize about water or wax with its slowly tumbling proton spins as structural memory media, but that would have been my sisyfos, and I do not need it. In addition to the place I mentioned, you can continue to try the screaming Turzovka, but I'm sure of those springs, not recent healing practice.
  5. Quality stainless steel does not matter ( Accominotti1998ccn ), somebody once asked me. The amount of metal ions released into the food from food neurae is only a tiny fraction of the amount of metal that foods generally contain. What is bothering is a "low-grade" stainless steel that releases, for example, rust-dissolved iron ions. They will pend between the Fe 2+ and Fe 3+ oxidation stages so long as the oxygen present does not oxidize vitamin C and everything else left to them. This does not necessarily mean total degradation of the juice, but it will affect the taste and is the reason for the well-known recommendation on the metals and juices. Once again, good quality food does not matter more or less.
