Dosage and Information
Organic Tuscany Gold, Balance Formula
The Balance Formula is best suited for individuals who are not exceptionally medication-sensitive (or supplement-sensitive) and who are not currently ill, but do have various functional symptoms that may respond to quality CBD oil. It is also appropriate for those who have been on the Sensitive Formula for 2 to 6 months or longer, and are ready to move to a bit stronger formula.
Dosage: Begin with 5 drops dropped under the tongue, 3 times a week. (The delicious organic extra virgin olive oil and red palm oil dissolve quickly under the tongue.) If this doesn’t seem to make a change in your symptoms, increase to 10 drops, or even ½ of a dropperful (~25-30 drops), 2 to 3 times a week. This “pulsed” dosage—that is, every other day dosage, is designed to allow the body sufficient time in between doses to detoxify, repair, and regenerate. Since most individuals tend to notice more energy from taking Organic Tuscany Gold, the most optimal time of day to drop the drops under your tongue is typically in the morning or the afternoon, at least 10 minutes (or longer) away from food. In contrast though, some like to take it before bed for better sleep. Just see which time of day or night fits best for you.
If you feel any disturbing symptoms arise the day of, or the next few days, alter your dosage at any point by cutting back down to 2 times a week, and/or taking less drops. Additionally, the activated charcoal in ABC helps bind toxins for more efficient detoxification, and may be an important addition to your protocol. Keep working with these suggested weekly frequencies and proposed number of drops until you find the most perfect dosage that reduces your symptoms but does not cause undue healing reactions (fatigue, malaise, “brain fog,” increased pain, etc.). Many individuals stay on their most appropriate dosage for a few months, and then level out at an ideal dose that is appropriate to sustain their state of health and optimal functioning.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal (ABC) helps bind the toxins that are released from taking CBD oil that may trigger various disturbing symptoms including fatigue, “brain fog” and cognitive difficulty, joint and muscle achiness, or just general malaise. When activated charcoal is mixed with a little water and taken before bed it can effectively absorb and reduce these circulating toxins, thereby reducing many of these disturbing healing symptoms. Very sensitive individuals should take 1/8 of a teaspoon mixed in 2 to 4 ounces of clean filtered water before bed 2 times a week, and those less sensitive can take ¼ to ½ of a teaspoon. Each dose of ABC should be followed by a glass of clean filtered water.
Note Regarding Extra Daytime Doses:
It should be noted that the reason ABC is prescribed before bed is because activated charcoal can also bind nutrients such as important vitamins and minerals. Nevertheless, many individuals report that they also take some ABC during the day as well if they are feeling fatigued, achy, or just not motivated enough to get important work done. Although they realize that they might be losing some of their recently ingested breakfast or lunch nutrients, it is worth it to them to feel better and more functional. Further, since these daytime boosts of ABC are typically very small—just a few grains can often help individuals feel a little better—the amount of nutrient-binding is very insignificant. Remember however that each dose of ABC—taken before bed or during the day—should be followed by a glass of clean filtered water.
