What size dose should I have, how many will doses will I need and how often?

Since each individual is different, there can be no one-size-fits-all approach to the use of helminths, diets or many other health-related intervention. However there are certain indicators, and we can help you make an informed decision. Certain illnesses may require regular large doses throughout the treatment where others may require only a few small doses.


In our opinion, no one should have a first dose larger than 10NA and, in many cases, it is best to start even lower. After your first dose, you will get an idea of how your body handles the new organisms and, more often than not, you will be able to increase the size of subsequent doses. In most cases, the maximum we would recommend having in one dose is 40NA
