Sickness From Sage & St John’s Wort
(Toronto, ON, Canada)
I am writing because I tried to follow some of the steps to prevent excessive sweating as it is a big problem for me. Since you wrote about stacking I tried to drink Sage and St John’s Wort.
I would drink sage one day (1/2 cup in the morning and 1/2 before sleep cool)and St Johns wort the other day. I followed every single step that you provided. I’ve been taking them for 4 days now but I started getting sick like 3 days ago.
It started with heavy headaches and then today and the day before I’ve in bed all day. I just threw up this morning and I think that it was the herbs as it was green. I know that it sounds nasty and it is.
Another problem that I had is that when I was peeing it would have that strong smell and as I was finishing peeing I would feel that burning sensation in my penis.
I really need to be able to deal with my hyperhidrosis problem but I cant keep on drinking those herbs. I was wondering if you have heard of such side effects?
I saw on the page that you talked about it that I could apply them directly to the affected areas, does it have the same results as drinking it?
No I haven’t ever heard of those side-effects, but I’m very sorry to hear that happened to you.
I would completely stop the usage of those two supplements and see a doctor if your sickness persists.
My guess is that it is your body’s way of dealing with something that it wasn’t used to.
Yes, sage can be applied directly to the skin in poultice form. It wouldn’t make sense to do that w/ St. John’s Wort though.
Answer these questions and I’ll give you some more guidance…
1. What are your major effected areas? (i.e. pits, palms, face, feet?)
2. Are you male or female?
3. What else have you tried?
4. How old are you?
5. What are your eating habits?
6. What is your level of physical fitness?
7. How long have you had hyperhidrosis?
8. Have you seen a doctor?
I look forward to getting your answers.
