It’s multipurpose platform makes it a dream to work with and soon becomes a favorite among clients. According to David Winston, Ashwagandha has also been used for low sperm count, lack of libido, and poor performance in the bedroom. Some indigenous African people use it for infectious diseases like typhoid and syphilis and/or women who have repeated miscarriage.
It’s widely used to induce hormone balance, as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and for autoimmune conditions. David Winston uses it along with kudzu, cyperus, and black cohosh for fibromyalgia.
Ashwagandha is one of my favorite herbs, and it can be used as a tincture, as a decoction, as a powdered extract added to smoothies and elixirs, and as capsules. My favorite is to add to elixirs. The only caution with Ashwagandha is for people who have a tendency towards hyperthyroidism, and those that are of an excessively hot constitution.
Learn lots more about Ashwagandha and all its uses, as well as other adaptogens, at my S.H.I.N.E. conference in January, where David Winston, master herbalist, AHG, will be a guest speaker. The conference will equip you to more effectively get results with your clients by addressing their hormone imbalances.
