Hi, I wish the stories on here were a little more encouraging about TF. I guess maybe the herx potentail has me quite nervous. I am a pt. of Dr. Brewer and started on Heparin 7 weeks ago for 4 abnormal clotting disorders (2 of which are genetic)with the plan of adding TF to my regimen 6-8 weeks into the heparin. I have an autoimmune disease; an overlap syndrome of lupus and scleroderma. All of the studies of TF have been done on patients with MS or CFS, so I feel like a guinea pig. They are starting me very slow.....2 pills a week for 2 weeks, then 3 pills a week. I am taking the Immune Care 64. I told them I have 2 kids birthdays in May along with all of the usual insanity that goes with the end of the school year & couldn't be flat on my back. So, that's why they're starting so slow. I wish this board were more active with people that are successfully using TF.
