To be taken with meals.

Preparing method and dosage for Calamus
According to Maria Treben's book Health in God's Pharmacy, the method and dosage for Calamus are this: take a teaspoon of dried chopped Calalmus root and put it in a glass of water and leave overnight. The next morning you strain the liquid and remove the roots. Then one drinks a sip (1 teaspoon) before and one after each meal. One should drink 6 teaspoons a day. You must not drink more than that. Calamus is a very strong herb so one should be careful to not over use it.

Side effects
I have taken Calamus for some month myself and I felt very good when I did. I felt good and fresh in my mind. I felt sharp.
But the herb is strong and you should not overdo it. Possible side effects are: sleepiness, low blood pressure, etc. I did not get any of this when I took the root but don't take too much and not for too long. All effective good medicine can be exposed to scare campaigns and false propaganda, lies, etc. The big pharmaceutical companies do not want competition from herbal medicines because they just want to continue selling their chemicals. Many established psychiatric drugs have serious adverse side effects. Avoid prescription chemistry medicines as much as you can. Take herbal medicine instead. Try the Calamus it's great.

Big pharma's harmful chemical medicines. Don't take these!
