    I went shopping yesterday, and bought replacements for everything including soap and shampoo, because I don't want anyone to be able to say the Guai did not work because I did not follow protocol. I am going to go the extra mile to give it every chance!
    I was unable to find any cough drops that were acceptable. Do you know of any?
    I had to buy a really cheap, lousy multi-vitamin in order to find one without herbs, bioflavonoids or natural E or iron. I will be getting by with much less E than I need for my heart, and I know from past experience that if I take less vitamins I will feel worse just from that, so I'll have to do that first and get used to it before starting the guai, so I can tell the difference. What multi-vitamin do you take?
    I drink a lot of green tea for the antioxidents in it. Is green tea OK?
    Thanks so much....

    This is one area of the Guai treatment where I'm afraid I fall short as I didn't even know Stevia was verboten (I should have since I know it's a plant derived substance). Have you gone to the no-sal websites to look for cough drops? Have you contacted Claudia? She may know of something.

    I'm sorry I'm not more help here.

    Love, Mikie

    Thanks for reminding me. I can't get on the support site....I keep getting an error message, but I can get onto the lists.

    I noticed in my hubby's cough syrup, both of us fighting a bug again, the 2 ingredients in the syrup are guai and pseudaphedron, what is this all about, I know nothing about guai?????

    Guai is used in many cough expectorants to thin mucus. It can be very helpful for sinus congestion, bronchitis, and colds where there is a lot of thick mucus. Off-label uses include fertility enhancement for women and for reversing the symptoms of FMS.

    The pseudoephedrine in the cough syrup is not a good thing. It can help open up bronchial tubes if that is a problem, but it is an excitotoxin and can make a person overly excited and edgy.
