Dear Susan Triphala is a rare combination of herbs that are nourishing even while being cleansing. So it is not harmful to take steadily for months and years. However, to get the most benefit from it, you might want to give yourself 2-3 weeks off every quarter. Herbalists generally agree that your body sees the herb anew after a sabbatical. Also – to support your digestive system’s health through chemo, you might also consider asking your doctor about using a high-quality probiotic (“good bacteria”) for 2 months on, 2 months off (no exact recipe here).
