I don’t have the exact dosages, but I will post them as soon as they come in the mail. The doc wants to put me on clomid and arimidex, both 3 times per week. They also want me to focus on adaptagenic herbs as well. Diet wise, I’m going to stick to the guidelines that John Meadows espouses, focusing on organic, grass fed foods, reduced carb intake, increase in healthy fats. Any input and advice you guys have is more than welcome, thanks so much.
