That’s a shame Jo. Welcome to you, i see this is your first post. Its good to be aware of what may not suit your condition.
Hopefully you will be able to try some other herbs in the future although i guess S4 will be some time away yet, unless sofi have any left over Valerian (S1) that you could try. I know they dont have any passiflora (S2) right now as i have asked. I think i have strange ( or different anyway) brain chemistry from many other people because if anything Valerian seems to make me less ready for sleep and wide awake, often until dawn! But i guess sofi analysis will pick up on that. From reading here it seems to suit many of the Pioneers.
Im sure that @alexwalkerjones will be in touch soon if they can offer an alternative solution. Best wishes x

Hello @jocromer and welcome to the Treehouse!

Without further information I can’t really comment but certainly having an autoimmune condition would not automatically mean that you couldn’t take part in the S3 (Ashwagandha) programme. If you can let me have a little more detail I’d be happy to look into it further for you. Feel free to DM me if you like, or keep the conversation open here for others to learn from.

Kind regards,
Pamela :herb:

I have sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disorder like Lupus. I have taken Ashwaghanda before in tablet form with no issues whatsoever. I appreciate everbody is different though. I was diagnosed in 2012 so ive tried a lot of different herbs and supplements , vit D has caused me more issues than any other!

Oops sorry not sure what happened but I am recently on oestrogen pessaries and cream after being advised for years that that was not possible as acancer history in our family is rife, but I’ve also read that ashwagandha is not compatible with oestrogen is this correct? Xx

Good to have you in the Sofi community @jocromer and sorry you can’t take part in phase 3. I have high hopes for valerian and am sure if it’s at all possible the powers that be will do their best to see you don’t miss out. Good luck going forward.
