It is considered a warming herb in herbal medicine (so i read).  Esp. the chinese panax kind.  There are warming, neutral, and cooling herbs.  People are said to have hotter or cooler consitutions naturally, so a warming herb for a person with a more yang or hot nature could overheat the person.  Too much energy, anxiety, irritation, inflammation, etc.  That is how i understand it!

Quoted from Chloe
From personal experience, I tried rhodiola for quite a long while and noticed very little. Chinese ginseng
made a profound positive difference in my mood, stamina and energy levels.
Chloe, this is such a good example for me to the difference between A and O! It is exactly the opposite with me     It is almost 7 and a half years and I am still amazed.

Yes, Chinese medicine discerns hot, warm, cool, and cold natures. Hot is considred "excess of fire", that is, fiery nature, ignites easily. Possum, I am like that. It's good to be aware what endagers my balance...    

I'm grateful to be reminded of the Ginko B. blood thinning effect. I am automatically reluctant of having it, only I didn't remember why.

I took gingko for awhile and it had some positives and seemed to also to have negative effects.   Positives seemed to be less sensitivity to blood sugar changes and perhaps more focus (I guess, some noted less focus actually).  Negative effects were it seemed to trigger a type of depressed feeling that otherwise I don't ever tend to get and less sensitivity to others feelings which being a counselor is not good( at least not for me).  I already have very good boundaries with clients without taking their baggage home or burning out.  I know there is only so much I can do but encourage and inform and people must decide to help themselves.
The gingko made me too abrupt and dismissive of other peoples concerns.  I also tend to get a rebound burnout and blood sugar crash after taking vyvanse or adderrall for too many days
Just like  too muchcaffeine.  I guess I am better off just eating right and living healthy! I don't need gingko!

Quoted from jayneeo
Robyn, Keep trying the YM.... I used to love the kind of "speedy" high from YM, but I find it is self-weaning, meaning the effect disappears over time (and not a long time) never to return! I still love the gentle high, very subtle, from it, but never ever get the more intense feeling...go figure!


I tried yerba mate a few times and it felt like what i think it would feel like to have used cocaine!  Coffee has nothing on yerba for a kick!  I would think it is not recommended for my genotype and i don't know about how yerba mate rates with A's overall.  I read a few A's say it was a superfood on their swami.

Yerba Matte makes me feel jittery, anxious and like jumping out of my skin. Fine with green tea, can have it before bed and sleep. A few times a year, if I have a cup of black tea or coffee, which is about 6x total, I do not get the effects that Yerba Matte gives me. Go figure! Individuality, and I was happy that Dr. D'Adamo posted something recently that even within the same blood group everyone has different reactions!

individuality, I can drink yerba matte all day, I think it gives me some energy, but not so much that I'd take it for that.  I'm don't have any effect from it or coffee as far as sleep, etc. It's a super so I drink it for that and I just happen to like it.


Swami, 100% me..
