Aww. You girls make me blush. It's just from YEARS of using herbs and researching various effects. We've used herbal medicinals in my family for at least 5 generations. (Well, more than that when you factor in the fact that prior to that, *everyone* used herbs. Modern medicine didn't exist.) Mom taught me, her mom taught her, her mom taught her and so on. My great-grandmother was an actual herbalist.

My blood pressure, pre-pregnancy, ran 90/60 normally. I landed in L&D the other day with low blood pressure and at one point dropped as low as 87/55. When I did parley tea, I had some pretty significant dizziness but at the time that could have been attributed to other things, as well. I usually just stuck with vitamin C. While it gives you some nasty gastrointestinal effects, it feels pretty much the same as what metformin does. Just make sure you drink plenty with it.
