For those of you who have tried AV's of any sort, I would much appreciate it if you would answer the following questions. I'm getting scattered info on this topic, but not yet pieced it together. 1) What AV did you take? What dosage? How long were you on it? 2) What was your health status before you went on the AV? (At least in terms of that 10 point scale--more elaboration if you have time.) 3) Did you get a herx reaction? If so, how severe was it? How long did it take before you got past it (if you did)? Was there anything that you did that helped the herxing, do you think? 4) What was your health status while you were on the AV? (Again, in terms of the 10 point scale. If you experienced benefits--or declines--what were they?) 5) What was your health status immediately after you stopped taking the AV (if you did stop)? Did this remain constant or change as time went on? 6) Did you do anything with regard to treating viruses after you stopped taking the AV on a continual basis? (e.g. pulsing, rotating different AV's, using transfer factor, other immune support, etc.) 7) In general, is there anything that you think that people who are trying AV's should know? Thanks very much for your help. I think this has the potential of helping _many_ people on the board, and so I hope you will consider spending your time supplying answers to be a very good deed.
