Buhner says that people should typically be healed from Chronic Lyme for 6 months before taking astragalus, just to be safe. Otherwise it could ramp up the immune function too much and create issues, unless you have a brand new infection.
I've been taking it for the last 18 months and it's been a big help to me.
