A dropperful is whatever comes up in the dropper when you squeeze it. Often, it only looks like about a half a dropperful, but whatever you get when you squeeze the dropper… that’s a dropperful. If you counted it (which would be really boring), it would be about 30 drops. 120 droppersful in every 4-ounce bottle.
The standard dosage is 2 droppersful, three times a day. Now, if you’re having problems, you can certainly take 4 droppersful, three times a day, or 4 droppersful, five times a day. For immediate relief, you can even increase your dosage to 6 droppersful, 8 droppersful, 10 droppersful or more. Then, once you start getting results, go back to the standard dosage. The bottom line, if you’re not feeling well and your symptoms are persisting, take more herbs and take them more often. That’s how you heal yourself and create powerful health.

Just look at the following example: A Child of: 30 pounds / 150 pounds = 1/5 of the adult dose.
