5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

Wonderful for sore throat symptoms of ME/CFS. Some years ago I soaked the woody pieces of astragalus root in rum or vodka for a month and then gargled with it every morning and night, swallowing it at the end of the gargle. I did this for months, and the sore throats reduced and then went away, and stayed away. The sore throats only come back when I am overdrawn on my energy account. I then gargle again and rest and the sore throats go away very quickly. No side effects.

I agree that in combination with other herbs it is helpful. I don't have the upper respiratory infections that I used to have all the time. I attribute some of that to using astragalus on a regular basis. Mostly I use the organic powdered version taken by capsule. When my symptoms were worse I sometimes would create a broth with the cut up dried root and use it in with my food or in tea.

On its own I don't think this does much, but in combination with other antiviral herbs I think the total is greater than the sum of the parts. The other herbs I take with it are propolis, lemon balm, turmeric and ginger.
