Hope you are feeling much better. Oh yes, there has been a nasty one going around. We will pray this flu flies away
Thank you for your kind words. This is a great community!
Your body's intuition is accurate! Spirulina is powerful, rich in amino acids, and, especially if your system is sensitive, this can be very overwhelming! A tbsp/day may be too much. A max. of 1000-1500 mg is plenty!
My favorites, of all the many ways I've used spirulina, are (1) one teaspoon organic spirulina in fruit smoothie, like organic strawberry and banana, in the a.m., 3x per week; (2) Source of Life in fruit smoothie, a.m., 2x per week; or (3) Evolution Super Green, or Odwalla or Naked Superfood juices, 1/2 of a 16 oz. bottle does the trick, 2x per week.
You might also try Acai, like in Sambazon juices. Acai contains vital protein and amino acids, and the folks at Sambazon have a great "green" philosophy...
Blessings, Health & Happy Hair to You! And, like Jerzy Kosinski writes in 'Being There,' "There will be growth in the spring!" JMS
