Berberine helped me

I wanted to share with you my experience with Berberine (and others). I am in remisson I guess one can say, the last eight months I was in a severe state and now after 4 weeks taking Berberine I am at my pre-severe state. It's not perfect far from it, but I don't feel constantly in PEM mode anymore and I think it has to do with Berberine.
I took it 3 times a day, before that I tried a lot of what Joshua Leisk has on his supplements list for about 3-4 months and than I added the Berberine (3x 500mg) and Curcumin/Turmeric (as well 3x a day). I don't understand how and what happened but I feel much better and just wanted to share this so maybe someone else had this experience...
I found something about it's immunosuppressant qualities and read about it usage in Japan for CFS/ME patients (olthough I can't find that anymore) so I thought let's try it.
Here is an article about it's qualities, it's long and I am still not quite getting it all: https://examine.com/supplements/berberine/research/#molecular-targets_ampk
I will definitely try it again after I am sure it doesn`t do harm as well - maybe it does even get better than this. I now feel again like my old 75 year old (though I am 40) but it is huge improvement from this year of hell.
Hope this information helps someone.
I have to test it again because I am not sure if it was the culprit, it's just a gut feeling and I wanted to share. Though I read the infos here about it and I am unsure if I just post this at all, since it does have some negatives longterm what I understand. But sharing is caring - i thought.

I took Berberine for a short while, didn't notice much except it caused gut cramping and diarhea.
this whole thing is just so hard to figure out, I just wanted to share my recent experience. I mean still I am not near a functioning person, but I can't explain the little bit improvement otherwise. (also diarhea is something that is just constant since I got this thing 15 years ago, but even that is a little bit better who know for how long though)
Also I am one of those who got an improvement for 24-48h after my covid/biontech jab. I am guessing the whole thing is autoimmune, so who knows what helps when. but right now this did, I think ...

I conferred with my Chinese TM advisor on whether I dare try Berberine

Answer- do not try Berberine.

Its been extracted from the plant, and therefore is viewed as a drug. its extremely cold, energetically.

It would be very contra indicated in my case, with IBS-d already. And other adverse side effects could be serious.

I generally stick with my CTM advice. I don't take random herbs or supplements that are isolating ingredients.
