Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

I've not looked into the research regarding nightshades and AD and would defer to others that might have. I know Gundry believes that many are sensitive to them and my personal experience seems to confirm a histamine-type response - - it's subtle: increased itchiness and sinus issues. I have no ide...

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

As a follow-up to my prior experience, I decided to stop taking Ashwaghanda about a month ago. It seemed to be synergistic with caffeine and put me more on edge, even when taking it at night (though taking it and drinking coffee in the morning was definitely was the most noticeable combination). Si...

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

Thanks Slacker. I am going to send the ashwaganda back. Better safe than sorry.

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

My integrated MD years ago had me try Ashwaganda. I tried for a month, and was sleepy and miserable the whole time. I recently learned that it's a nightshade. I'm nightshade-intolerant, which I discovered through daily experimentation with single foods, only later learning how they are tied togethe...

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

Just as a follow up, my mother's cardiologist's nurse called and told me that the doctor, though he had never heard of ashwaganda, had said to avoid it. SInce several sites indicate that it may increase bleeding, and since my mother is on coumadin, I suppose it does make sense.

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

Thanks for the feedback Brian2. I hope that my mother has better results. I think that consumer lab said that in one test of Ashwaganda, positive results were not seen after 4 weeks, and required 8 weeks of dosing.

Re: positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

circular, Julie G and Brainz, thanks for your replies. Based on Consumer Lab reviews, I have purchased Nature's way brand. I again contacted my mother's cardiologist and spoke to the nurse about taking the herb while my mother is on Coumadin, and she is supposed to get back to me. The last time I sp...

positive or negative experiences with Ashwaganda

After researching it, primarily on the consumerlabs website, I ordered some ashwaganda for my mother who has been diagnosed with mci. I would like to know of the experiences of any members (or their families) who have taken the herb. I am a bit hesitant, as my mother is on coumadin, and ashwaganda h...
