    Hi Hawkeye: I read your previous post where you mentioned that Rhodiola Root was helping with you energy.

    CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT BRAND YOU TAKE?

    Is it still helping?

    Thanks for the information!

    Hi

    I didn't see your post...I found a message for newbies on one of the boards that said do a search for your name and you will find messages for yourself and I found this...sorry.

    I bought my Rhodiola Root at Wild Oats and it is called Rhodiola Energy the website on the bottle is www.enzy.com

    It was very inexpensive and I am still LOVING the way it is making me feel.

    Hugs,
    Karen

    Just to give you some info. on my experience with rhodiola.

    My doctor put me on rhodiola liquid about 2 years ago. He said that it would not 'cure' me but, because it is an adaptogen, it would help my body level itself out. I just take the rhodiola with no additives ( an Australian brand: Mediherb) He did not say it would, by itself increase my energy level - and it hasn't. I think it is a long term thing.

    I would be very interested in knowing if you can take rhodiola long term or not.

    I know that you can only take high doses for several months, but my specialist said that 5mls is a very low dose and it is OK for long term use. However, he might not be right.

    Any info. appreciated.

    Yep, you aren't supposed to take it long term. The research that I have found said to take it no longer than 4 months. I am going to take it through the winter months and go off of it in March which will be 4 months for me.

    I am on a very limited budget and it is only 20 days worth but to me the vitality and clear headed thinking that I have gotten from this is worth every penny. I feel like a completely different person than I did one month ago.

    Hugs,

    Thanks for the info re. not taking rhodiola long term. Next time I go to my specialist, I shall take the issue up with him.

    Can you tell me where you found this info? I did some searching but couldn't find out anything about length of time. Any info appreciated.
