Thanks for the keywords for a heavy duty PubMed search. I did not get to the bottom of it all, but did find that forskolin (interacting with polyamines) can help increase ornithine decarboxylase, which tends to be already elevated in hypothyroidism or have aberrant metabolism in cancers. So, I who have a low thyroid condition and a history of cancer am definitely not going to tinker with Coleus forskolii unless I read something that clears up the picture of the alternate dynamics involved in each situation. It might be just the ticket or an Avoid. I have seen another ND's inclusion of C. forskolii in treatments of psoriasis, which makes it slightly tempting to experiment, but not with the other factors to consider first.

I am happy with the protein solution myself, but am reaching for ways to help my forlorn teenager out of his slump. Sounds like C. forskolii might be ok as a temporary boost (as you implied in Cook Right 4YT) in the absence of other problems.
