Herbal tincture containing alcohol

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I suffer from anxiety and my herbalist (who recommended the paleo diet), has put me on a herbal tincture just before bed. The only thing is that it contains alcohol.

Is this ok on the whole30, or should I give it up for 30 days?

I'm only on day 3, so it's not a biggy to start again.

I'm afraid the alcohol doesn't actually evaporate completely which is why it isn't allowed even in cooking. However, medical conditions will always trump a W30. If you can get the herbs without the alcohol that might be worth considering but if you can't, and you feel you need them for your anxiety then I wouldn't gie them up, I'd just keep going.
