I'm new to this herb and took it for the first time in capsule form. Stupidly I didn't do much research on it first, assuming someone else had, but it turns out it's relatively unresearched? And it caused bad diarrhea. They didn't mention that on the box
yikes that's a bad side effect... hm, i've never heard of it before... not even the common names. from wikipedia:
"Rhodiola rosea (commonly golden root, rose root, roseroot, Aaron's rod, Arctic root, king's crown, lignum rhodium, orpin rose) is a perennial flowering plant in the family Crassulaceae.
"Although it has long been used in traditional medicine for several disorders, notably including treatment of anxiety and depression, there is little scientific evidence to verify any benefit.
"The leaves and shoots are eaten raw, having a bitter flavor, or cooked like spinach, and are sometimes added to salads.
"In Russia and Scandinavia, R. rosea has been used for centuries to cope with the cold Siberian climate and stressful life. It is also used to increase physical endurance and resistance to high-altitude sickness, but the scientific evidence for such benefits is weak. The plant has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, where it is called hóng jǐng tiān."
interesting about the anxiety and depression... i'll be sure to moderate its use to avoid diarrhea. yes, it pays to do some research before dosing on an unknown herb... there's a very good nutritional store nearby with a wonderful herb vault, i'll ask about "golden root" next time.
Rhodiola is an American adaptogenic herb that I have taken in tincture form with no ill side effects. I would not bother to take it in capsule form as it is widely available as an easily absorbed tincture.
I have read Dr Axe, and Dr. Lam and American herbalist Susan Weed recommend it for stress. And if I recall correctly Steven Brunner recommended it in his classic Lyme Disease Protocol. I've since given away that book, so don't quote me on that.
I suspect that because it is an American herb it would not be highly studied. I find I often have to read studies from other parts of the world where the scientific communities are more open minded about these things.
My adaptogen of choice turned out to be Ashwagandha, mostly due to the fact that I have a sluggish thyroid, so I discontinued the Rhodiola.

HOLMES: what did you use,, the living the tarot book , was it a course or a self goal ?

wildrosespeonies: Self goal. I don't have time to sign up for actual card studies class even though I know many places offer them online. I use the guidebooks that come with the deck(s) for reference when I can't recall a card.
Apr 25, 2019 4:01:22 GMT
wildrosespeonies: Also, I think guidebooks are underrated. They can put more detail into the illustrations and some of them are pure poetry. (Mesquite and Pagan Otherworlds being my favorite guidebooks for that reason -- language is amazingly used)

HOLMES: a book written for the deck can be excellent if it adds , the tarot of the elves talked about the story behind the minors, one was really sad.. the hudes guidebook , and robin wood was awesome .

wildrosespeonies: Wow. I just discovered a tarot maker on kickstarter who blantantly stole another tarot maker's art. (The art is the art back of Sinking Wasteland.) I have let SW creator know. But wow! Can't believe that.
Jun 21, 2019 5:46:41 GMT
wildrosespeonies: The artist contacted the KS tarot card maker and they replaced the image, but I'm pretty sure the new image is stolen too. It looks familiar, but I don't recognize where the image come from.

auroralara: forum.tarotsphere.net The “force” behind tarot reading is always down to the reader. The “reader” being the mechanism by which tarot is interpreted is inevitably a human being or more. Humans being the creators of symbols and symbolism such as that
