Caraherb Practitioner Strength Organic Herbal Tinctures

Our Practitioner Strength Organic Herbal Tinctures are 1:1 or 1:2 strength, meaning they are 1 part herb in 1 or 2 parts liquid respectively, as opposed to other herbs on the Irish and UK market which are either 1 in 3s or 1 in 5s. This makes my tinctures at least 2 x greater in strength therefore effectiveness.

All tinctures are supplied in a one month supply only consisting of 2 x 200ml bottles only (400ml). Again your purchase will last one month when taken at the therapeutic dose of 7 1/2 ml 2 x day or 5 ml 3 x day in a little water before meals (or after meals if you have a sensitive stomach).

Drug/herb interactions.

The Caraherb Practitioner Strength Organic Herbal Tincture range has been formulated to have no negative drug/herb interactions. If you are on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding, Carahealth recommend getting expert naturopathic advice on herbal contraindications and drug/herb interactions by booking a Skype consult.

Carahealth accept no responsibility if you self-prescribe my herbs whilst taking medication or are pregnant or breastfeeding (although Caraherb Partus Prep and Caraherb Birth Aid can be self-prescribed as they are specific for pregnancy). Carina can make a herbal tincture specifically for you that is safe in pregnancy, breastfeeding or if you are on medication. Or perhaps you are not on medication but would like to book a Skype Consult to ensure your self-prescription is correct and would like advice on diet, lifestyle and supplements.
