Thanks WalkingByFaith, somehow your reply didn't show up for me earlier so I missed it.
Rhodiola was initially a wonderful levelling herb for me - I was cautious with it at first but it certainly acted as a calming adaptogen at the start. I've decided to cut it out completely for now. I hadn't noticed problems with Ashwagandha, I started using it before I had lyme for insomnia and I'm never sure it helped much either way - I'm going to take it out and re-add it after a short break and watch it carefully as well.
Eleuthro - I've used this cautiously on and off. I've never noticed anything one way or another which is why I keep dropping it. I've taken it out of the list as well.
Sida has a minuscule amount of ephedra in it and since I'm seeming to be sensitive to anything stimulating, I'm putting it in the timeout list as well. I was a little nervous about
that but reading through the list of everything I'm hoping that alchornea is sufficiently protective of red blood cells that I can take a break and then see if this can be a morning and lunch sort of herb.
I read one study a while back that showed a link between crypto and sleep disturbances in rats so I'm going to take this as a pulsed herb for a while instead as Buhner has a suggestion of 5 days on and 14 off.
I'm actually happy to have a slightly reduced protocol for a while as I also opted to take out red root and cordyceps for the time being for other reasons as I'm feeling pretty well covered.
Wish me luck for sweet dreams again soon.
