While Cacao is a great heart opener and increases our levels of dopamine and serotonin, it is not advised to take if you are currently taking any anti-depressants or anti-psychotics. If you are on any of these medications but feel guided to take a different approach then Cacao can be a great place to start. First and foremost, you will need to stop taking your SSRI’s and then slowly you can start to introduce Cacao around the 4-7 day mark. Again, before making any decisions, do your research and check in with your Doctor.
This medicine is safe and very beneficial for pregnant mothers and their developing babies. Some ‘Cacao babies’ have become quite psychically and intuitively aware, some babies go quieter and deeper with Cacao; if the baby does not like the effects of the Cacao, you will know. Best advice is to start with small doses and observe, listening deeply.
