Has anyone tried taking adaptogens? If so how was your experience?
I recently read in another group that adaptogens stimulate the immune system in some people with auto immune conditions and therefore shouldnt take them.
My functional med doc prescribed withania and echinacea. After taking them for a couple months I felt that my throat puff up and it has been challenging to swallow so I have stopped taking them today and have felt less pressure in my throat area. I did mention this to him previously and he said to cut down the dose for a bit. I should also mention thati had been taking these two adaptogens during the last labs that i posted (all medicine was taken after I go my labs done).
