I did a little research myself on AnxioCalm and found very similar information and conclusions as Laura. From the little research and clinical studies done, this is my summary:
"The key ingredient in AnxioCalm is Echinacea - a genus of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family and a common ingredient in cold remedies. Promoters of Echinacea believe that the supplement boosts the immune system and can reduce symptoms of infections and other illnesses, including the common cold."
As the topic at hand relates to anxiety and depression, it appears the studies that have been done have shown to reduce these challenges (see double-blind placebo trial here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31876052/)
Studies have also shown that there are minimal side effects, such as nausea and diarrhea, as well as potential allergic reactions such as rashes. The key thing to keep in mind, similar to adding any kind of supplement to an existing protocol, which Laura pointed out nicely, is that Echinacea can potentially interact with other medications. The goal with our protocol is to not mix with others as it can potentially inhibit everything the supplements are designed to do. Remember, the protocol we follow addresses toxic diseases from a wholistic approach - meaning it’s designed to support the entire bio-terrain and not one specific symptom.
While I’m not in the medical world and the limited research I’ve done doesn’t seem to show anything above mild side effects, it doesn’t appear that this supplement would interfere with the protocol, but of course should be taken with caution. I’m always on the side of whatever can be done naturally to start there, as much as possible. What works for me when it comes to my mental health is focusing on connection - with people, work, serving/volunteering, as well as diet. Specific foods have shown to put people in better moods and I would encourage people to incorporate the types of foods/diet listed here:
Now, I understand that there are much larger factors at play when it comes to mental health and that medicine is called for in a strong, supportive way. Just read everything you can about drugs/supplements of interest to understand everything you can, check published clinical studies, talk with Mel and the folks at Logos, your practitioner, etc... do everything you can so that you can make the most informed decision that will work best for you.
Blessings to you all and I pray for each and every one of us daily as we fight to regain our lives.
Thanks for the advice.
I did talk to Mel, and he said the research Department said it's OK to take the SAMe, because its something the body makes naturally.
It has been helping me. So far so good!
I just thought I would update this to let anyone know in case they were wondering. Have a great day!
