Propolis for hayfever

Following from my last post this is a quote from James Fearnley's Bee Propolis - Natural Healing from the Hive:
"Consumer research indicates that a number of users found relief from hay fever when taking propolis. In 1980 Dr Remy Chauvin, the French physician noted for his championing of propolis, treated a number of patients with ha fever. The patients were treated with with a alcohol extract of propolis in soluble starch. Each patient received 7-8 doses daily for eight days, each dose containing 250 mgs of dry propolis extract. The patients' symptoms were almost completely alleviated. Small doses were given in the following two years with continuing positive results"
So I've just made tincture with 60g of propolis, that would make 240 of the above doses from this amount (60/0.25=240). As there's 240ml of alcohol (probably a bit less once it's strained etc.) that would mean 1ml of my tincture 7-8 times a day to repeat the above experiment. I'll have to wait 2 weeks before I can try it though...
