I just  got my SWAMI today, and I noticed that roobios tea isn't mentioned at all. Does that mean I can assume it's a neutral?

Also, I get licorice root as a neutral. Everywhere I've seen mentions of licorice root in  books (including Dr. D's Health Series), it's said not to take it if you have high blood pressure- but there's no such disclaimer on my SWAMI. As of my last dr appt, I had high blood pressure, and my dr wants to recheck me in a few months (I'm probably due for that soon) to see if it comes down on its own through diet, stress  relief, and not taking sudafed. Andrea put down my "personal history of heart disease"  but there wasn't a specific spot to enter high blood pressure.

So does this mean that there's a little "blip' in the SWAMI software, and I should avoid licorice until I can verify that my blood pressure is back in the normal range and staying there,? Or does this mean that, for my personal body, licorice root is safe even with my history of hypertension?

My own opinion- I would say to wait, because I also heard that real licorice will raise blood pressure.

Ah, I found the rooibios tea in the "neutral" category, after I spelled it correctly.

DGL licorice can be found in most ( if not all) health food stores. GNC makes an excellent product - but it does change the pitch of your voice!

a neutral isn t a SF or Diamond, don t forget.

your Dr will tell you if it s safe for you to take at this point, when you go to your appointment.

DGL licorice will not raise your blood pressure or cause you to retain water because the component in licorice that does those things is taken out.

only if it s DGL deglycyrrhizinated licorice like this one here

Quoted Text
Most adverse effects have been attributed to the chemical component glycyrrhiza (or glycyrrhizic acid). Licorice can be processed to remove the glycyrrhiza, resulting in DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice), which does not appear to share the metabolic disadvantages of licorice.
