Days 7-9: You may increase to two capsules in the morning.
Days 10-12: You may increase to two capsules at night.
Day 13: You may increase to two capsules, three times per day, after this, the dose may increased

kidneys have to deal with extra dead cells, and get them out of the body. You may feel ill and tired for
a time. This could be the time to take a break from the capsules. It’s important to drink plenty of
water and to make good dietary choices: plenty of vegetables, for example.
Take a break: Sometimes it may be necessary to take a break from the treatment for a week or so. You
will probably know when this is necessary for you.
Diagnosis is the great strength of the medical system, and you may have blood tests or thermography

If white tissue is visible in the cavity then this is the time to apply salve.
Cat’s Claw is a modern addition to the arsenal of herbs that have been found effective in treating
abnormal cell growth. Please consider using the new “Triple Strength” capsules as they contain really
large amounts of both Bloodroot and Cat’s Claw.
All the best wishes with your ongoing treatment!
