What doseage of Butchers Broom do you take?
I take 2 X 500 in the morning. One night I took another 500mg because of restless leg syndrome.

Yesterday I started taking bacopa monnieri for a different reason and am going to see how much that can help.

Acetylcholine is what helps the situation. This is a good article about it. I also try to take B vitamins, B5 seeming to help the most.

Potatoes aren't good for it, but I'm trying to see if the remedies are strong enough to allow me to eat them; I don't have many food choices.

Is it possible to have POTS without dizziness? I have blood pooling and I have to use full body compression every waking hour but no dizziness. Without compression my function level decreases significantly.

Two days trying Brahmi (bacopa monnieri), and it works even better for me than the Butcher's Broom. I realize there is more than one possible cause for POTS, so it might not be the answer for everyone.

One of it's actions is it "appears to affect levels of several neuromodulators – chemical messengers that neurons release to signal to groups of other neurons (as well as other cells with certain receptors). Specifically, Bacopa Monnieri may activate choline acetyltransferase (an enzyme involved in acetylcholine synthesis) and inhibit acetylcholinesterase (an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine) (1). Both of these actions raise brain levels of acetylcholine, a chemical with important roles in things like attention and memory."
