Fatigue, Debility, Stress, Immune Deficiency (auto-immune disorders), Recovery
Ashwagandha is known as the "Ayurvedic" Ginseng. It is indicated for the same types of conditions as Ginseng, but Ashwagandha is not heating, Yang, or stimulating like Ginseng (Panax varieties). It is used preventatively for those who put out more energy than they put back into themselves and want to avoid burn out and breakdown. The breakdown from unrelenting stress can take the form of immune breakdown (colds, flu), headaches, irritable bowel, blood sugar swings, and any other genetic, predisposition, or constitutional weakness. Ashwagandha gives additional life force or Chi to help adapt to the stresses at hand. It can also be used in a restorative way for those who have already broken down. Ashwagandha, as part of a rejuvenation treatment plan is effective in chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, debility, recovery from wasting diseases, chemotherapy and helps while one is in emotional recovery therapy. Ashwagandha is also specific in autoimmune disorders. It helps immunity to self modulate. It also has an affinity to help chronic neuromuscular disorders such as
fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis (MS).
