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.
