Wow! I was just going to ask if anyone was willing to be a guinea pig!  Smile So will you be taking it during your follicular phase only first? And are you taking anything else besides white peony? Do keep us updated!

I also like the look of the Hawaii Pharm WP. Like Ashley said, liquid is usually best absorbed especially if you take it sublingually.

Haha NaturalLady, you're interested in white peony so you can break into this thread as often as you like :-) And you pointed out something interesting. I didn't know many people have been taking it continuously for arthritis etc.

I actually think WP would be effective if taken only for about two weeks (follicular phase) and it would also make us feel better about the whole "this herb must not be taken for more than 4 weeks at a time" statement.......we'd probably need to make sure we're taking something else during luteal too of course. 

I wonder why more women on here haven't taken WP. Could be that it's just underrated. Not many people know about and take sea buckthorn for example but a member on here said she grew (two cups if I remember correctly) while taking it. I've seen a couple of threads about WP but the members never reported back....


Thanks Bettie! Smile Yes, most of what I've read has been regarding white peony's effectiveness for autoimmune and other chronic diseases..  https://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/uniq...arthritis/.. meaning people are taking it consistently. This article also shared some other positive benefits: https://www.honeycolony.com/article/white-peony/ with no mention of it being problematic during long term usage. Obviously we all have to monitor our bodies when taking something new and if any weird symptoms or reactions crop up, it's worth backing off of the supplement to see what's up. But that said, Chinese practitioners have been using WP for hundreds of years, referring to it as a "gentle tonic". Apparently it also has blood-strengthening properties which is good for anemia too I'm sure.

I do still really like the idea of taking it during follicular as a first approach though so yes, keep us updated, KrysLove!!

I have fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, and very poor adrenal function....my immune system is crap bcuz of these things. My body doesn't absorb nutrients well and it holds onto toxins. Im also anemic...It's been awhile since I had it checked but last I knew a few years ago it was pretty bad! I have a doctor appointment coming up with a new doctor and I'm going to be getting a lot of things checked. But anyways, the things you mentioned make me even more interested in trying WP.....I'm considering buying a small bottle from Hawaii Pharm and just take a very low dose for a couple weeks and see if I notice a difference (good or bad) while taking it, or after stopping it. But I'm hesitant to interupt my current program. Ugh, I'm terrible at making decisions -  as Bettie knows lol- I've been back n forth on WP for weeks now lol...well actually months. But her and I have been discussing it at length, for some time, and we both just can't decide what to do. I guess I could wait to hear back from our "guinea pig" lol. 
*Thanks again Krys! I know at least Bettie and I are anxiously and optimistically awaiting ur results.*
Sounds like you are too NaturalLady. 

BTW, I like your username. It's similar to my old email. I like to use nature for as much as possible instead of man-made anything. Obviously, technology/mad-made is needed sometimes, but whenever possible, I much prefer to go organic, holistic, naturopathic, Etc. Etc.

Hi Ashley8!  I currently am working on correcting some long-standing issues (digestive & autoimmune) and know first-hand how awful it is to be anemic!! I am trying to build my blood up too. That's just more reasons why the WP looks so good to me..   If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing already for the hypothyroid and fibromyalgia? Are you making progress in those areas? I hope so! Smile    Anyway, I'm so sorry you're dealing with these things but maybe the white peony will be of help to us in some way. I know what you mean about making decisions.. I'm the worst about sitting on the fence forEVER, lol. But it does pay to be cautious when trying new things too.

I'm also with you on the nature path, hence the name NaturalLady. Smile I've never done well with pharmaceuticals (I don't even try them anymore) and always go with natural, organic, and holistic.
