Default ashwagandha - is it possible to make situation worse?

I was starting taking ashwagandha 1 month ago and I feel worse than before. But 1 month ago I also started mild alkaline diet so I am not sure if that is the reason for felling worse or ashwagandha. I am surprised because it should gives me more energy but I have it less. So is it possible that ashwagandha make negative effect or not?

What I have investigated is that ashwagandha *may* be implicated in hyperthyroidism, which *may* lead to hypothyroidism (low energy).

Please know that I'm no expert, but my best guess is that with your mild alkaline diet, you are inadvertently excluding an important nutrient in your diet. Are you following this diet out of a particular book, website, regimen?

My main questions are: Do you still take ashwagandha? (is it a name brand supplement, or generic??) and, how long have you been on this particular diet? Longer than you had been taking ashwagandha? Or did you start these at the same time?

My ex and I took azhwaganda sometimes when we were depressed....don't know if it made us better or worse... there's a big selection of other natural stuff you can take too.
