Thanks for your reply. A few more questions for you: 1) Is the tincture a good choice and if so, is alcohol or water extracted best for stress, hyperthyroidism and autoimmune balancing? 2) I want to avoid taking it as a tea or decoction; what is your best second choice as a form (tablet, capsule, powder or tincture? 3) Eleutherococcus Senticosusis is the scientific name I should look for to avoid the confusion with Ginseng? 4) Any counter reaction when taken with Bugleweed, Lemonbalm and Motherwort? 5) Any side effect when someone is taking Methimazole, a medication used for hyperthyroidism (man, not woman, and the hyperthyroidism was induced by supplementing with Lugol’s Iodine).
