    Works in M.Gravis and these same autoantibodies have been implicated in NMH and POTS - so I wonder if would work for OI related issues?

    I take both astragalus and ashwagandha (both adatptogenic herbs) and I feel I benefit a great deal from taking them. They helped a lot during a recent adrenal crash.

    Also... my partner recently purchased an inversion table for back pain.. I think I'll start using it for blood flow to the brain and see if it helps! :)

    ive had some great success with a herbal mix that includes astragalus among other things. I have used Rhodiola rosea worked really well for me for about three days at a time. Lactuca virosa also worked ok but can cause stomach upsets. I have used ashwagandha in the past for sleep and for inflammation from another health problem and it worked well.
